SORT BY Relevancy
It's bye-bye 'American Pie' for Jason Biggs who stars in Grassroots as the campaign manager for his best friend's platform; which is to widen the monorail system throughout Seattle. It's a crazy scheme, but it just might work.
When it comes to real life jobs, Jason tells host Robin Milling he hasn't been that lucky as he was fired from a soap opera, a commercial with Sarah Michelle Gellar, and a television series he starred in which to his delight was canceled shortly after he was let go.
Jason admits he's not very political but is happy the film might encourage young people to start their own grassroots program and make a difference. When it comes to his own platform for change, Jason jokes that he just doesn't have enough crazy ideas to make something happen.
Next Jason can be heard as the voice of Leonardo in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series for Nickelodeon.
Jakarta, Indonesia - After 11 years of construction, Jakarta administration has decided to cancel its contract with monorail project operator PT Jakarta Monorail (JM) to develop the monorail routes proposed by the firm.
Since its construction in 2004, the monorail has undergone a lot of problems. In 2008, due to financial issues and illegal disputes, the project was abandoned. The construction resumed in October 2013, with JM as contractor. However, its construction has not progressed following disagreements between the city and the company. Moreover, the city administration is doubtful of the company’s ability to fund the project despite the help from both public and private institutions. Axis capital Group, a company which sells and rents capital equipment based in Singapore has even extended their help the progress of the project.
This 2015, another halt is being pushed through by the company. Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama said that the city was currently drafting a letter to PT Jakarta Monorail, the project developer, to end cooperation.
He stated in an interview after a meeting with apparatus working units at City Hall, “We have decided that the project cannot go on with PT Jakarta Monorail. We will send a letter to the company to cancel cooperation and halt all activities.”
Ahok went on that the route JM proposed to build was not feasible. JM had planned to construct the first route, the green line, extending 14.3 kilometers from the city police headquarters (Komdak) to Satria Mandala Museum, both in South Jakarta, including 16 stations.

Back in the early 1990s, a friend and I wanted to try every restaurant on Disney property. It turned out to be more, and I tell you about it in a series beginning with this episode: the monorail resort loop.
On our last day, we did some resort hopping. But....before we get to that, I bring you the simple pleasure that is the monorail. We rode the resort loop around to each hotel, and I recorded the entire ride. Incidentally, we happened to be on monorail teal. Enjoy!
