Ty Dolla $ign’s Pot Seized in Police Roadside Investigation

first_imgL.A. rapper/producer Ty Dolla $ign‘s (real name Tyrone Griffin) bus was pulled over by Wisconsin Police for supposed vehicle equipment violation early Wednesday morning. After smelling strong odors of marijuana coming from the bus, officers decided to conduct a roadside investigation of the bus. Dane County Sheriff’s K-9’s alerted officers to several suspect locations on the bus, which led to the seizure of 42.2 grams of marijuana, which included 18.2 grams of butane hash oil, and 28 pieces of paraphernalia.According to reports, twelve people were on the bus, with seven of those being arrested on various charges, including suspicion of drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. We have a feeling Ty wasn’t feeling very “Irie” after this early morning encounter with police.Ty’s representative claims that the rapper was not on the bus, as he was taking the easier route by plane to his Iowa gig, maintaining that it was his band and entourage on the bus, though authorities claim they arrested someone going by the name Ty Dolla $ign. Will we ever know if it was Ty on the bus? This story is shrouded in mystery (or pot smoke).[via Channel3000]last_img read more

Kombinasi Lintasan Kereta Underground – Elevated, Bikin Biaya Operasional Lebih Besar

first_imgDikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari tempo.co (14/1/2019), General Manager LRT Departemen PT Adhi Karya (Persero) Tbk, Isman Widodo, menyatakan bahwa tidak naik turunnya kereta memungkinkan biaya operasional LRT nantinya bisa lebih hemat. Sebab, perlintasan menanjak atau menurun di rel besi tidak bisa disamakan dengan di jalanan yang hanya dilalui ban mobil dan aspal. Semakin banyak lintasan yang naik dan turun, maka tenaga yang dibutuhkan di kereta juga bakal semakin besar dan biayanya pun semakin mahal.PT Adhi Karya yang mantab membangun LRT pada lintasan elevated tentu memiliki pertimbangan matang, di antaranya yaitu perimbangan antara capital expenditure (capex) dan operational expenditure (opex) model elevated yang dianggap paling efisien, kapasitas kereta, hingga teknologi yang digunakan. “Konsep elevated ini lebih murah ketimbang bentuk underground atau bawah tanah, serta lebih efisien dan cepat dibandingkan menapak di atas tanah atau grounded yang memerlukan biaya yang besar,” ujar Iswan Widodo.Baca juga: Eksklusif! Inilah Penampakan Bagian Dalam Stasiun MRT Dukuh Atas Sementara dari sisi lain, pembangunan jaringan underground, meski menelana biaya besar dan waktu lebih lama, tapi punya nilai prestis tersendiri bagi suatu negara. Kehadiran jaringan kereta bawah tanah, tak dikesampingkan sebagai tolok ukur kemajuan transportasi di suatu negara.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Jika kondisi memungkinan, sejatinya pembangunan jaringan kereta komuter, baik di segmen MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) atau LRT (Light Rapid Transit) ditekankan untuk memilih salah satu diantara tiga opsi, yaitu elevated (jalur layang), underground (jalur bawah tanah), atau grounded yang menapak di atas tanah. Namun umumnya karena kondisi kontur geografi dan struktur bangunan di sekitarnya, menjadikan operator kereta harus memilh opsi hybrid, contohnya seperti MRT Jakarta yang mengkombinasikan lintasan elevated dan underground.Baca juga: Ketika LRT Mogok, Penumpang Harus ‘Siap’ Berjalan Kaki di Elevated Track Sebaliknya, jaringan LRT seperti proyek Jabodebek dan LRT di Palembang, memilih opsi full elevated. Selain kontur geografis dan kondisi bangunan di sekitarnya, yang tak kalah penting adalah biaya pembangunan, disini implementasi jaringan underground jelas yang paling tinggi. Namun lepas dari itu semua, pemilihan jaringan pada MRT/LRT rupanya juga terkait dengan konsumsi energi yang harus dikeluarkan oleh operator.last_img read more

Wenger: We’re too far behind City

first_imgArsenal boss Arsene Wenger conceded his side’s title hopes could be over after their narrow defeat at Manchester City.The Gunners were beaten 1-0 by the Premier League leaders after David Silva struck in the second half of a pulsating encounter at the Etihad Stadium. Despite a recent charge up the table with seven wins from eight, the result left the Londoners 12 points behind City after 16 games.Wenger said: ”Unfortunately it’s a game we couldn’t afford to lose because it puts us too much [behind City]. If we had won the game it would have put us six points behind and with our full-backs coming back, and (Jack) Wilshere and (Abou) Diaby, we would have a better squad in the second half of the season.”It will be difficult to close the gap on City, but we will try. This is a game we couldn’t afford to lose and that’s why it’s difficult to take. We will continue to fight and there are a lot of positives. The team has made a lot of progress since August and the team can be proud of it.”Despite City’s chances, Robin van Persie had a strike ruled out for offside and Arsenal were also denied a penalty when the ball struck Micah Richards’ arm.Wenger said: ”It was a game where it could have gone both ways. I felt we were a bit unlucky and their keeper had a good game. I did feel at half-time we could win the game if we stayed stable at the back, but we lacked a bit of accuracy in our final ball. ”In the final third as well we had a few opportunities where we didn’t pass the ball well.”Wenger added that Johan Djourou, who left the game early in the second half with a groin injury, could be out for three weeks.last_img read more
