Digital layouts and comps begin to set the visual tone and the aesthetics of an interface, but when the end product is intended for web use, there is no substitute for transferring the design into an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and reproducing the design with HTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and Javascript. Illustrator and Photoshop “comps” were recreated in Aptana Studio, the IDE application used to design and build the GDHit interface.

  • Distance-based insurance reflects the principle that prices should be based on costs. It gives consumers a new way to save money by returning to individual motorists the insurance cost savings that result when they drive less. Motorists who continue their current mileage would be no worse off on average then they are now (excepting any additional transaction costs), while those who reduce their mileage save money. Distance-based pricing can help achieve several public policy goals including actuarial accuracy, equity, affordability, road safety, consumer savings and choice.

  • Road accident related fatal risk differs from air pollution related risk. The latter is to a large extent involuntary and beyond the responsibility and control of those exposed to it. In addition, while taking the risk of a traffic accident, driving itself offers a direct personal benefit. On the other hand, air pollution related risk is less often connected to a direct personal benefit, although it is to some extent transport induced. Because of this different risk context, air pollution related risk aversion is likely to be higher than for fatal road accidents.

  • Database programming begins with the database. A well-performing, scalable data- base application depends heavily on proper database design. Just about every time I have encountered a problematic database application, a large part of the problem sat in the underlying data model. Before you worry too much about writing Java code, it is important to lay the proper foundation for that Java code in the database. Relational data architecture is the discipline of structuring databases to serve applica- tion needs while remaining scalable to future demands and usage patterns.
