Covington Could Benefit From GPS Tracking
When most people think of the blue grass state they think of Louisville, college basketball and the Kentucky Derby. However, if you were in the metropolitan city of Cincinnati and starred across the Ohio River you would see a moderate sized city known as Covington. Covington is probably best known for its collection of historic churches that include the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption and Holy Cross Roman Catholic church. Although Covington may not have a professional sporting franchise or be a popular tourist destination, the 45,000 plus people who live in the Kentucky city could greatly benefit from the use of GPS tracking devices.
Vehicle Tracking & Covington
Covington is a city the lacks some of the necessary infrastructure, industrial centers and business opportunities to create strong internal employment options for locals. Thankfully, the city is located only a hop, skip and a jump from Cincinnati, resulting in many of the people in Covington traveling for work. When people have to spend a great deal of time on the road traveling their cars are more than just personal assets, they are a way to make a living. The problem facing many Covington residents is that when they travel to the big city their cars are nowhere near as protected and safe as they are when parked at home Kentucky. This is why so many people who have to commute to Cincinnati for work are investing in real-time GPS trackers.
Paul Campaign Shifts To New Hampshire Primary
The preliminary polls leading up to the Iowa caucuses last night showed Mitt Romney and Ron Paul leading the pack, but when all of the votes came in a candidate by the name of Rick Santorum was the surprise, taking 24.5% of the votes. Although Ron Paul was able to gather a large number of independent votes and 21.4% of the overall vote in Iowa, the 76-year old congressman from Texas appears to be struggling in his ability to sway the more conservative republican voters to buy into his ideology for the GOP moving forward. The good news for the campaigners behind Ron Paul is that no person finishing outside of the top three in the Iowa caucuses went onto win their parties' nomination, and although Paul finished in exactly third, he was only a small percentage out of first. Now, Ron Paul and his campaign will move to New Hampshire where it appears to be a three-man race.
Electability: The Main Hurdle
One of the most common words that was used during the caucuses in Iowa was "electability". Conservative news media and republican top dogs constantly discussed the importance of a candidate who had an electability quality in order for the GOP to put up a winning fight against incumbent President Barack Obama. What most of these strange polls showed was that Mitt Romney scored the highest when it came to electability, something the GOP believed would be essential to regaining control of the White House.
