houston — in may 2013, when houston was awarded the right to host this year's super bowl, the city's economy was booming as many of the oil and gas companies that call houston home and have earned it the nickname "the energy capital of the world" were riding high on a wave of oil selling at more than $100 a barrel.but that wave soon collapsed. oil plummeted — bottoming out at around $26 a barrel — energy firms declared bankruptcy and more than 80,000 local workers lost their oil-related jobs over the last two years. while this wasn't as bad as the infamous oil bust of the 1980s and the city's economy is now more diversified, it still hit houston hard. office space and newly built apartments stood empty, car sales fell and local tax revenues dropped.economists say the worst seems to be over

the most common terminal commands worth knowing for the raspberry pi


while the raspberry pi’s operating system is linux, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should go out and memorize every linux command. the pi is a different type of computer that’s used for different kinds of projects, so the most useful commands differ from what you’d use on an everyday linux machine. over at circuit basics, they tallied up their 42 most used commands.advertisementwhile just a few of these commands are raspberry pi specific, like raspi-config , most are just normal linux commands. still, some of these are commands you’ll be running all the time on a raspberry pi, like ifconfig which shows you the status of your network connect, or hostname -i which grabs your pi’s ip address. these are the kinds of commands you’ll be using a lot when setting up a new pi, so it’s useful to
