GPS Shirts & License Plates Printer Friendly Version
I'm sure this has happened to others as well: You're in an unknown neighborhood, basically lost, but there are a few cars, bikes or even pedestrians around who seem to know where THEY are going. If one of them had the same goal as you, you could simply follow them. But then, how would you know...?
Here's where GPS shirts and license plates come to play. The license plate idea is kind of easier to implement: This would be a display beside your actual license plate which is attached to your real GPS in the car, and so the folks behind you can see where you're going.
The shirt would work similarly, with the place you're heading to displayed on the back of the shirt (either automatically via GPS, or to be inserted manually). Of course, it is nice to imagine this idea in an analogous and visual way - nowadays, however, you'd be more likely to implement it virtually: Create an app, have people enter their routes, and off you go.
Reward: One of those.

Ultimate Railroad Cross-Tie Printer Friendly Version
Grind up old automobile tires. Mix this with some sort of resin and pour into cross-tie molds containing reinforcing frame, if necessary and embed noncorroding anchor studs for the rail tie down plates.
This would solve the problem of getting rid of unwanted auto tires and prevent the cutting of tens of thousands of trees currently used for railroad cross-ties also would save man hours replacing ties by extending the life of the ties.

The High Winger Printer Friendly Version
The design idea is for a medium to long range two-engine aircraft in either a larger wide body configuration or narrow body. The engines would be rear-mounted and be either similar to short distance airbus engines or those on longer distance Boeing 787 or 777 aircraft. The high wing design is based on the BAe 146/ Avro RJ and some turbo prop aircraft. The main differences are that this design could be larger or smaller and the engines are rear mounted similar to the MD 88 and others. The safety and passenger aspects of this design are listed below
Safety
As the this is a high wing design fuel tanks would be above he ground and would not be compromised in a wheels up emergency landing. The engines are also above ground level and would not be compromised in an emergency wheels-up landing. The mid wheel nacelles would be wide enough to prevent the plane from tipping over in a wheels-up emergency landing and could be equipped with inflatable air bags to act as buoyancy devices in case of a water landing. Also due to the high wing and high engine design these would not snag on waves or dig into the water if an emergency landing on water is required.
Passenger Comfort
Unlike the Avro (which is a high wing design with engines attached underneath the wings) and other traditional low wing designs, all window-seat passengers would have excellent views, and with a rear engine design noise levels would be acceptable.
