Speed Dating 101: How to Find Your Perfect Match in Minutes

Informal. a person or thing that is compatible with or typical of one's ability, personality, desires, etc.: My speed is writing postcards on the porch while everyone else is tearing around the tennis court.

physics a scalar measure of the rate of movement of a body expressed either as the distance travelled divided by the time taken (average speed) or the rate of change of position with respect to time at a particular point (instantaneous speed). It is measured in metres per second, miles per hour, etc


Speeding - traveling too fast for conditions or exceeding the posted speed limits - is a contributing factor in 26 percent of all fatalities. In 2020, there were 38,824 fatalities on our Nation's roadways, of which 11,258 were speeding-related - increased by 17 percent from the previous year. Speeding is a safety concern on all roads and for all road users. Although much of the public concern about speeding has been focused on high-speed Interstates, only 14 percent (1,344) occurred on interstate highways, rural and urban combined, while 86 percent of speeding-related fatalities occurred on non-interstate roadways. Speeding is a complex issue involving engineering, driving behavior, education, and enforcement. FHWA is the lead agency accountable for the engineering actions.

The Speed Suggestions report lets you see the speed of your website across metrics like Avg. Page Download Time (sec) and Avg. Server Response Time (sec). The report enables you to identify areas for improvement across your site and on specific pages so you can make your pages load faster.

Speed cushions are either speed humps or speed tables that include wheel cutouts to allow large vehicles to pass unaffected, while reducing passenger car speeds. They can be offset to allow unimpeded passage by emergency vehicles and are typically used on key emergency response routes.

Emergency services should act in coordination with transportation departments, recognizing that reducing speeds and volumes on local roadways benefits overall safety goals by reducing crash frequency and severity. Develop an emergency response route classification map at the onset of the planning process. Emergency vehicle response times should be considered where vertical speed control mechanisms are used. Because emergency vehicles have a wider wheel base than passenger cars, speed cushions allow them to pass unimpeded while slowing most traffic.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $65 billion to ensure every American has access to affordable, reliable high-speed internet through a historic investment in broadband infrastructure deployment. The legislation also lowers costs for internet service and helps close the digital divide, so that more Americans can take full advantage of the opportunities provided by internet access.

USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities, create jobs and improve the quality of life for millions of Americans in rural areas. This assistance supports infrastructure improvements; business development; housing; community facilities such as schools, public safety and health care; and high-speed internet access in rural, tribal and high-poverty areas.

From large providers like AT&T, Comcast, and Verizon serving dozens of states, to smaller providers serving rural areas like Jackson Energy Authority in Tennessee and Comporium in North Carolina, the commitments will allow tens of millions of ACP-eligible households to receive high-speed internet at no cost.

For example, as part of this initiative, Verizon lowered the price for its Fios service from $39.99/month to $30/month for a plan that delivers download and upload speeds of at least 200 Megabits per second, and Spectrum doubled the speed of the $30/month plan it makes available to ACP participants from 50 to 100 Megabits per second (download).

These companies serve urban, suburban, and rural communities across the country. Collectively, they offer high-speed internet services in areas in which over 80% of the U.S. population lives, including nearly 50% of the rural population. The Biden-Harris Administration is grateful for the efforts of these companies, and encourages additional internet service providers to join this effort to close the digital divide by offering high-speed, low-cost plans.

If a customer contacts you about the speed of your store, then ask your customer to check that they're on the latest version of their browser, they have recently cleared their cache, and their Internet service provider is not experiencing any outages or degraded performance.

The `` Liquid object injects assets used by a variety of online store features, including performance analytics and optional features like dynamic checkout buttons. Loading this object and related assets has an impact on the speed of your store. Shopify is optimizing the tag and its assets to make it faster.

Certain features, when enabled, might also affect your store speed. For example, some quick view pop-ups pre-load information from every product page when a collection page loads. Loading extra data your customers aren't using can impact your store speed without adding value.

You can edit almost all of the Liquid that is used to render your store. There are efficient and inefficient ways of writing Liquid code. Doing complex operations repeatedly can increase your Liquid render time, which impacts your overall store speed.

Shopify's Online store speed report uses Lighthouse to measure the speed of your store. You can run your own Lighthouse report using Google PageSpeed Insights to view more detailed metrics for pages in your store. To learn about what these metrics mean, refer to the Google Lighthouse performance scoring documentation. You can also hire a Shopify Expert to help you understand the metrics and suggest improvements.Learn more about hiring Shopify Experts.

Because the test conditions are different when run from Google PageSpeed Insights, your score might be different from the score listed in the Online store speed report. Learn about the Shopify test environment.

A speed restriction is an area in which trains are required to run at slower-than-normal speeds because of track wear and tear or other problems. Speed restrictions are put in place to ensure rider safety.

Line-wide speed restrictions apply across an entire line. Block speed restrictions are specific lengths of track that may include one or multiple defects that need to be investigated or mitigated. As each defect is validated and corrected, the length of the block restriction is reduced until the speed restriction is fully removed.

Over the past couple of years, we installed thousands of new 25 MPH speed limit signs across the city. Now, more than 90% of city of Seattle arterial streets are signed at 25 MPH and at more frequent intervals. This is a major milestone in our speed reduction work.

Signs are a start. The design of our streets greatly influences how fast people drive. We are continuing to redesign streets to reduce vehicle speeds and are looking for ways to do that in more places.

Since Seattle adopted Vision Zero in 2015, we've made big strides lowering speed limits across the city, prioritizing the safety of people over the throughput and speed of vehicles. Seattle is one of the first cities in the country to study how reducing speed limits and increasing speed limit sign frequency improves safety for everyone. Early results show a decrease in vehicular speeds and a reduction of up to 39% in crashes.

In early 2020, we started our work with posting speed limit signs on every arterial street in the city and we completed this work in early 2021. People will see more speed limit signs (we're putting them in every quarter mile) to increase awareness. Check out the Speed Limits map below to see our progress so far.

Lowering vehicular speeds has been and will continue to be a key part of Seattle's Vision Zero efforts.We'll say it again: speed is the critical factor in the frequency and severity of crashes. A few miles per hour difference can make a big impact on a person's chance of survival.

This finding is important because enforcement disproportionately impacts Black people and other people of color. At SDOT, we are learning and listening to how our urban spaces disproportionately place Black people in harm's way. In addition, speed limit signs are the most cost-effective method of reducing speed, and lead to promising results for safety.

Our early work with reducing speed limits started with redesigning high injury streets - places that have had high frequency of crashes due to vehicular speeds and activity from those who walk and roll throughout the corridor. We'll continue redesigning streets and making proactive, systemwide changes.In 2016, we changed the Seattle Municipal Code to reduce citywide default speed limits. The default speed limit for non-arterial streets changed from 25 MPH to 20 MPH. The default speed limit for arterial streets changed from 30 MPH to 25 MPH, unless otherwise posted. At that time, we installed new signs at highway off-ramps, ferry terminals, and at the arterial city limits, and reduced downtown speed limits to 25 MPH.

In 2017, we focused our speed limit efforts on urban villages (think: neighborhood business districts). These are where we see the most activity (lots of people walking, biking, driving, and taking transit) and the most crashes involving pedestrians - nearly 80% of pedestrian collisions occur within or near urban villages.

NOAA Fisheries announced proposed changes to the North Atlantic right whale (Eubalaena glacialis) vessel speed rule to further reduce the likelihood of mortalities and serious injuries to endangered right whales from vessel collisions. NOAA Fisheries accepted public comment on the proposed rule until October 31, 2022. The public comment period is now closed. Comments are reviewed and generally posted in the order they were received and may be viewed here.
