New York’s LaGuardia Airport, consistently ranked among the worst in the U.S. in cleanliness, design and delays, will be torn down and rebuilt with help from Delta Air Lines Inc.
The new airport would consolidate four terminals into one, connect the facility to the New York City subway system, create more space for airplane taxiways and add a hotel, Governor Andrew Cuomo said.
The governor didn’t release a timetable for the full project, though he said the first phase, the $4 billion rebuilding of the 50-year-old Central Terminal, will open to the public in 2019 and be finished in 2021.
“There’s no way to fix this; we literally have to tear it down,” Cuomo said Monday in a speech to the Association for a Better New York in Manhattan.
Cuomo was joined by U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden, who once likened LaGuardia to an airport in a third-world country.
“New York deserves a better airport, and its future demands it,” Biden said Monday.
IKEA didn’t just imagine the kitchen of the future. It actually built it.
The Concept Kitchen 2025, a pop-up exhibit featured at EXPO Milano 2015, isn’t about your kitchen and its appliances doing all the work for you; it’s about helping you make thoughtful decisions about food and waste.
Innovations are everywhere. And much conventional thinking about what a kitchen actually requires has been thrown out the window. This is the kitchen reimagined for a time when the Internet of Things defines our lives.
The kitchen was developed with IDEO London, a global design firm, and college students focused on “the social, technological, and demographic forces that will impact how we behave around food in 2025.” Check out all the bells and whistles below.
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of late music legend Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown, died on July 26, surrounded by her family, at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Duluth, Georgia. She was 22.
“She is finally at peace in the arms of God,” the Houston family said in statement to ET. “We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
On Jan. 31, Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in her bathtub, and was then taken to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell, Georgia, where she was put on a ventilator to assist her breathing. She was later placed in a medically induced coma at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital.
