Hyperloop One is working on a transportation technology that can make trains go as fast as 760 miles per hour. The company has raised $160 million in several rounds to build the transportation systems that seem like something out of science fiction.

By the Mighty Mumford

At Christmas a number of us,

Don’t have much family fuss…

They’re too far away

Or communication’s belayed,

In coming together we trust.

Hopefully I won’t work,

But will if my buddy’s Dad’s hurt…

Just me and thee

Rejoice happily,

Praising God which art and wert!

Christmas evening/morning at church,

Blessings by Christ’s birth…

Good to attend

This year we intend,

If at all possible give Him berth.

–Jonathan Caswell
