    --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- To get to the Tri-State Marker, where the US states Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska meet, you have to turn off a dirt road unto some dirt tracks across a field and hope that your four-wheel-drive will get you through the deep dips by the windmill and that there actually is a marker on this field. There is! There are no signs by any of the roads or dirt tracks that will assure you that you're headed in the right direction. The only way I found it was by following the GPS coordinates, which weren't exactly accurate (N 41° 01 W 104° 03) and eventually just turning onto the field near the coordinates on a wing, a prayer and the intense winds up there this week. Because this was definitely one of those cases of the journey itself being the destination, I'm showing you some of the roads leading there and our trusted 4Runner. Because the wind was so intense, I also kept some shots that are a bit wind-wobbly and one of Whiskey with her ears blowing in the wind. Coming from Colorado, I first drove into Wyoming (Co Rd 161) and then headed back south a bit (Co Rd 164). The areas in both those states leading up to the tri-point are so beautiful (Pawnee Grassland and the Pine Bluffs) that I highly recommend this excursion and I plan to return for more hiking and filming. Expect to see a video on the abandoned farms of the Pawnee soon... An interesting fact: In 1896, the original marker was placed a few hundred feet away from where the states where actually supposed to meet. Instead of moving the marker, the powers that be found it easier to redraw the map. So this marker actually determined where the boundaries are, which makes this place a little more important than it seems (considering there are no signs to find it). By the way, the highest point in Nebraska, Panorama Point, is not far from there. Again, I plan to go back to that area...

          LINCOLN, Neb., April 17, 2015 – Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD), Nebraska’s largest electric utility, plans to replace an existing coal-fired boiler at its Sheldon Station plant in Hallam, Neb. with one that uses clean-burning hydrogen fuel. The hydrogen will be produced by Monolith Materials as a co-product from its production of carbon black using natural gas as a feedstock. The collaborative undertaking is expected to create good paying jobs at the site and enable NPPD to continue to generate and deliver affordable, reliable and sustainable energy to Nebraskans Read More: http://monolithmaterials.com/nebraska-public-power-district-to-implement-innovative-solution-curbs-carbon-emissions-while-growing-economy/

                      A recent analysis of census tract and household income data by the Pew Research Center shows that residential segregation by income has increased over the past three decades. This increase is related to a more general trend of a rising income inequality across the United States, which is reflected in a shrinking of neighborhoods that are either predominantly middle class or mixed income. And, despite this rise in segregation by income, segregation by race still trumps income as a predictor of where people live. The wealth gap between the average white and nonwhite American family is large and has even expanded since the Great Recession began. The consequences of such segregation for low-income minority communities propagates these inequalities. Without access to more affluent neighborhoods, low-income minority families are also denied access to the benefits that exist in such communities. Communities in which 20% or more of the population is below the poverty level have fewer public and private resources, including quality schools, recreational areas, and grocery stores. The effects of residential segregation include: political, cultural and linguistic isolation; insufficient tax base for schools; low rates of homeownership; crime related to a high concentration of poverty; a lack of role models for youth; lack of food and clothing businesses; an entrepreneurship gap; and family disorganization. This soundscape displays residential segregation in Omaha, Nebraska through the musical representation of population attributes of neighborhoods in the northern and western parts of the city. Musical pitches were calculated based on the proportions of the given attributes in the population. Population attributes are presented one at a time, first with North Omaha in the right ear and West Omaha in the left ear. All 12 population attributes are cycled through twice, once with North and West Omaha presented separately and sequentially and then at 2:34 minutes into the composition, the musical lines for North Omaha and West Omaha are presented together, as a musical display of desegregation.
