Automobile dependence and physical inactivity: Insights from the California Household Travel Survey

Conclusion To get sedentary auto-dependents out of endemic physical inactivity, our research indicates the need for targeting lower-incomes, incentivizing employers to provide flexible work hours, and to continue dense, mixed-use developments that make active travel feasible. In addition, to get active auto-dependents to use transit, transit managers must focus on retaining immigrant riders and non-Hispanic Asians, and attracting people with children.

During the battle, Richard is dismounted as his horse is killed and in a mad frenzy wades through the battlefield screaming “A horse, a horse! My kingdom for a horse!” Richard shows us how market value can change drastically depending on the circumstances, or your mental state, and even the most absurd exchange rate can become reasonable in a moment of crisis. This presumably arbitrary nature of prices should be the first t...
