The Alabama Department of Transportation issues quarterly reviews of what current road repair operations are being conducted. While they are unable to report all construction and maintenance zones in Alabama, the department serves as an excellent resource when planning traveling routes. Unfortunately, however, there are many types of bad roads that go unreported each and every day. In these situations, it is critical for all Alabama motorists to drive in an alert, aware manner to ensure that any bad road effects are spotted prior to any damage or collision.
On the other hand, war can also impact the economy positively in the short term as during the Great Depression during the 1930s in the United States. The war mobilization efforts and military spending stirred capacity utilization and reduced unemployment through increased army conscription. Technological advancements are also a positive impact of war. The railroad networks of the Europeans for instance, that had a significant military strategic input in terms of countering enemy attacks, also helped the civilians. The GPS system which was specifically developed to enhance navigation by military during the 1990’s has found great use among the civilians to date. The First World War helped establish machinery that would help maintain world peace. The League of Nations was founded after WWI as a platform to settle disputes peacefully and even though it has been criticized for failing to avoid World War II, it set precedence for the formation of the United Nations. Some wars have also led to the end of despotic leadership in various countries across the world such as the Libyan civil war that led to the ousting of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.
Ed Wood 's Plan 9 from Outer Space was labeled the "Worst Film Ever" by The Golden Turkey Awards . This movie marked the final film appearance of Bela Lugosi. Wood shot only a small amount of test footage featuring his idol Lugosi before the actor's death. Afterwards, the character was played by Tom Mason , the chiropractor of Wood's wife (Kathy O'Hara) at the time, who played his scenes holding the character's cape in front of his face. Wood was apparently undeterred by the numerous physical differences – such as height and build, and the fact that Mason was nearly bald while Lugosi retained a full head of hair until he died – that distinguished Mason from Lugosi. Years later, video distributors such as Avenue One DVD began to make light of this, adding such blurbs as "Almost Starring Bela Lugosi" to the cover art. Numerous critics also pointed out the cheap, hardly believable special effects and kitschy dialogue.
