How long have humans wished to fly? Likely from the moment hominins first gazed up at a bird and wondered How? Why?
Every subsequent civilization created myths, legends, gods and goddesses around flight. Flying dreams are a common part of the human experience. And although there is a universal desire to take wing, some cautionary tales emerged, too. In Western civilization, the Greek myth of Icarus is illuminating. Icarus’ father made two sets of wings consisting of feathers and wax so that he and his son could leave the island of Crete. The father warned his son not to fly too close to the ocean or the sun, but Icarus became giddy and carelessly soared too high. The sun melted the wax, and he fell into the sea.Certainly, the Earth-bound folks who first built wings and strapped them on their arms understood the risks, but some gave it a try. The lucky ones never got off the ground, and those who launched from cliffs and promontories probably crashed and died.
It wasn’t until the 1400s that Leonardo da Vinci
Lamborghini, which today is known for its lightning fast, super sexy cars, was once a maker of tractors! The man credited for this transformation was none other than Ferruccio Lamborghini, the father of the brand, who 50 years ago took it upon himself to build machines that could challenge the likes of Ferrari. The vehicles offered by Lamborghini are for those who enjoy the finer tastes in life.
Founded in 1963, Automobili Lamborghini is headquartered in Northeastern Italy. There it manufactures some of the world’s most sought-after super sports cars. Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. is an Italian brand and manufacturer of luxury sports cars and, formerly, SUVs, which is owned by the Volkswagen Group through its subsidiary brand division Audi.4, Lamborghini offers a new dimension in luxury super sports cars.
With 130 dealerships worldwide including few in India, Automobili Lamborghini is building on a succession of dynamic and elegant super sports cars including the 350GT, Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo, Murciélago, Reventón Coupe, Reventón Roadster, Aventador and Gallardo.

Stabiljack offers an ergonomic way to load and stabilize spotted trailers. It employs a wide-spread, twin jack system with 100,000 lbs. of capacity. This two jack system tolerates the eccentric loading as well as rocking motion of trailers as they’re loaded or unloaded by material handling equipment.
The unit rolls into place by exerting only eight pounds of force. The twin jacks can be conveniently lowered or raised simultaneously by an onboard crank (M1 model) or a push button (M2 model). The positioning of the unit is done manually and guided by an onboard flag. The flag helps determine its proper position in two axis. It also alerts backing tractors of the Stabiljack presence under the truck in daylight hours.
Reflective tape and photoluminescent strips communicate presence in night operations. Onboard brakes prevent the unit from wandering on sloped approaches while the unit is stored.
Imagine a major city where 35 percent of all traffic is people on bikes. Or think even bigger--an entire nation where 27 percent of all trips are pedal-powered.
This is not some Utopia dreamed up by a 24-year-old after too many handcrafted beers. These are real places located in modern societies with high levels of car ownership. Places not so different from the US named Copenhagen and the Netherlands.
Don’t believe it? Go there, and you can see for yourself. You’ll be surprised to find these are great places for everyone, no matter how they get around, because cities that work for bicyclists are more vital, prosperous, convenient and attractive places to live and work.
It’s never been easier for local leaders across the US to experience life in these world-class communities. Next summer PeopleForBikes, a Colorado-based non-profit, is organizing tours of Denmark and the Netherlands to offer public officials, planners, civic activists and business leaders practical lessons about how to help their own cities thrive. (Minimum of four participants from each community.)
“These tours are 20 percent about bikes and 80 percent about how to make great places full of economic, social and cultural wealth,” said PeopleForBikes’ Zach Vanderkooy in a phone conversation
Anybody who has witnessed the spectacle of a seven-tonne lorry reversing over a canal bridge in Amsterdam will applaud fresh innovation in the city’s delivery systems. These narrow 17th-century bridges and streets are no home for huge vehicles, which often look alarmingly close to toppling into the water as their stressed driver painstakingly inches along, attempting not to hit the cyclists overtaking on all sides.
Fortunately, a solution has materialised. An inventive alternative for the transportation of local food has taken shape in the form of Foodlogica. Rather than a grand attempt to reconcile the city’s needs with its ancient infrastructure, Foodlogica is a clever solution to a very real paradox: sustainable food is not sustainably transported. Founder and local food champion, Francesca Miazzo, has set out to rectify the faulty link in an otherwise ethical food system used by many Amsterdammers – a system in which the journey between conscious consumer and sustainable producer is made by gas guzzling vehicles that exacerbate pollution and congestion. As well as the obvious environmental ramifications, this kind of food transportation is a blot on the landscape of a city that is, in general, a joy to travel around in.
Just when you thought your commute was getting too routine.
Over the next decade, the idea of getting to work on time, heading out to the hinterlands for your family vacation or even going to the game will become much easier. Cars will drive themselves along pre-determined routes. Trains will use new magnetic rail systems. And an amazing new “hyperloop” train will speed along at 800 miles per hour.
The best part? These innovations are not just spinning their wheels. They are set to debut within the next 10 years or have already started transporting us.
“New technologies have the potential to make our roads and transit systems safer, greener and more efficient,” Gregory Winfree, the administrator of the Department of Transportation’s Research and Innovative Technology Administration, told FoxNews.com. “We are working hard to ensure that these technologies can be integrated safely into our existing system.”
“We will need to do something,” said Thilo Koslowski, the lead automotive analyst at research firm Gartner, who studies next-generation transportation, “given that we will continue to see more vehicles on the road but won’t be able to grow infrastructure at the same time. We have to get smarter about using that infrastructure and/or innovate in passenger vehicles
