  2. In reading the comments by Hamadeh in that Scene article, he's sounds like he's more of a talker than a doer, unfortunately.
  3. Ohio State taking on $29M renovation of busy laboratory building The Celeste Lab is one of the busiest facilities on the Ohio State University campus, and officials have concluded that years of wear and tear warrant an upgrade. "Celeste Lab accommodates approximately 75,000 credit hours per year and delivers laboratory instruction to approximately 10 percent of the student population," OSU spokesman Dan Hedman told me. "These renovations are important to support one of our most-used facilities." Renovation for the lab, built in 1986, was approved for $3.9 million in professional services, including design, during the August board of trustees meetings and is included in the school's fiscal year 2019 Capital Investment Plan.

  4. Pita Pit to open first Dayton-area location near UD A fast-casual restaurant chain specializing in pita sandwiches will soon open its first Dayton location. A Pita Pit restaurant will move into a 2,000-square-foot building at 1047 Brown Street near the University of Dayton. Local franchisee Dain Peterssaid he hopes to start construction on the restaurant within two to three weeks, pending approval of building permits.

  5. The only "entitlement" program that needs to be reversed are the tax cuts for the rich. How many poor, working-class Americans will die younger without saving what's left of our social safety net and the social security WE EARNED and already paid for?

    Cincinnati: Liberty Street Road Diet

    Bipartisan council coalition set to override Cranley vetoes today Five Democrats and one Republican on Cincinnati City Council are expected today to override Mayor John Cranley’s vetoes of funding for the city’s major business accelerators, the Center for Closing the Health Gap and a project that will narrow Liberty Street to five lanes. The group of council members expected to vote for the overrides include Republican Jeff Pastor and Democrats Chris Seelbach, P.G. Sittenfeld, Greg Landsman, Wendell Young and Tamaya Dennard. Legislation also will be introduced to tweak the sources of funding for the various items. If the overrides are carried out, it will be a major defeat for the mayor, who held a blistering news conference last week accusing council of fiscal irresponsibility in the closeout budget for fiscal year 2018, which ended on July 1.

    Republicans do a great job of making liberals go nuts over identity issues so that they'll ignore all the money being moved around. It's all about the money. The rest is distraction. Brett Kavanaugh was not nominated to give women a hard time or to flip one case about abortion. He was nominated to give everyone a hard time by flipping 100 cases about money.
  8. I hope it's a development play, my house is literally one parcel away from being in that image.

    The map certainly illustrates how much money is being sucked into Silicon Valley and the PNW from people giving all of their money to the internet rather than spending it in their communities.
  10. https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/2018/10/97773/nick-bosa-will-not-return-to-ohio-state-this-season-instead-focusing-on-nfl-draft-per-report Disappointing news - before his injury Bosa was on track to have a historically great year - but I can't disagree with his decision. This was basically a season-ending injury (his dad said he would have been out until at least mid-December). It would have been great if he could have returned for a CFB playoff game - but with so little time to return to game shape - and with a top 5 draft pick in the balance if he re-injures himself - its a smart move to shut it down and focus on getting healthy for the draft combine.
  11. I didn't notice until now, but as of July of this year, the Big Egg restaurant has a new owner....sort of. It's actually a paper transfer using a corporate name that has owned this property in the past -- The Orient's Glory LLC. That company is owned by the Hamadeh family, namely Mazen and Haitham Hamadeh. The Orient's Glory is actually a Florida company, based out of the Orlando area. It has no Ohio registration. But what's actually different is that in July they added four more parcels to their portfolio here -- the two southernmost parcels of their parking lot along West 52nd as well as the two parcels forming an L to the SW of the intersection of Detroit and West 50th (edit-looks like the family bought these last two parcels in 2014). It will be interesting to see if this a development play or if they intend to sit on them as an investment. Across Detroit Avenue is Big Joe's Auto Sales, Detroit Auto Repair, and A1 Luxury Cars that's being targeted for housing. At least the eastern portion (A1) was acquired earlier this year by a company controlled by the Kertesz family.

    ^ Wow, again, you completely miss the point. I know you tend to be a bit obtuse sometimes but please this was not a very confusing comment. There is no position on authority of this subject. THe individual voters decide. However, as we have seen through the last few years, the people who choose to attack Trump on his level often come out looking worse than if they found another way to take him on. (See Marco Rubio, See Hillary Clinton). I don't think Warren will be the nominee either, but she will hurt herself if she continues down her path. YOu can see Trump has gotten to her.

    ^Also, Mueller's office never leaks. This could be coming from Rudy/The White House.

    Ohio's 1st Congressional District

    It was a pretty pathetic argument on Aftab's part. Politics is what it is though. That was such an easy one to put into context though that it would have been better to leave it alone. It is a minor rookie move by Aftab. This election will be about gaining experience for him. He knows he is unlikely to win, and will be hoping to lose by a smaller margin than expected. It will position him as someone with a future in the party. Similar to what Cranley did when he lost to Chabot in 2000.

    The point is that you have no position of authority to be accusing anyone else of being divisive or “too outraged”. Trump did not invent it, he benefited by being good at it as the sociopathic narcissist that he is. I don’t care what Warren is doing. She’s unlikely to be the nominee.

    No, it's change in vitality. It says Buffalo basically stayed the same and Houston and Miami went down. But they could both still be higher than Miami. No way to say without looking at the raw data.

    The Trump Presidency

    Lawyer hat really quick... Based on this, there are two options: 1. Bloomberg is wrong, and their information on Mueller's release timing is incorrect. or 2. The Special Counsel has enough on their own, and there is no longer the need for a meeting between the POTUS and Mueller or interrogatories answered. In a criminal investigation, charges are seldom dismissed without first speaking to the target(s) of the investigation - however, charges are often filed/indicted without statements of suspects. To my knowledge, Don Jr. and the President have not sat down with or answered questions for the special counsel. I don't think the same is true for Jared (though I may be wrong).
  23. I was kinda hoping the next administration would do a better road diet which would really open up room for development.
  24. Haha. I honestly have the OPPOSITE problem when I'm in there. Everytime I'm there I get suckered into buying something because I really want them to make it.
