6:39 am
the bakery says it's getting 20 to 25 calls a day from people wanting information on their policies. this week marks 75 years since one of the most notorious broadcasts ever to hit the airwaves. it was in 1938 that orson wells' adaptation of hg wells "war of the worlds" was carried by the cbs radio network. the audio play about martians invading the united states was done like a news broadcast. millions of people did not hear the disclaimer and went into a panic thinking it was real. 97-year-old william hearst is the only surviving cast member. >> i really thought it was pretty, uhm, far out and that people would not respond to it. >> scouting planes report three martian planes visible above treetops moving towards somerville with people fleeing. >> while many people didn't appreciate the impact of "war

6:41 am
it's estimated that 30% of the traffic in a city is caused by people looking for parking. that's remarkable that so much energy is, is wasted. streetline has looked at the problem of parking, which has not been looked at for the last 30, 40 years, we wanted to rethink that whole industry, so we go and put out these sensors in each parking spot
6:42 am
and then there's a mesh network that takes this information sends it over the internet so you can go find exactly where those open parking spots are. the collaboration with citi was important for providing us the necessary financing; allow this small start-up to go provide a service to municipalities. citi has been an incredible source of advice, how to engage with municipalities, how to structure deals, and as we think about internationally, citi is there every step of the way. so the end result is you reduce congestion, you reduce pollution and you provide a service to merchants, and that certainly is huge.
