  1. Past hour
  2. MLB better get used to it. This will be happening all summer long wherever the *'s go! I may even have to take in a game at Progressive to see it first hand
  3. a very nice article about one of the greatest track athletes of all time, cleveland olympic champion harrison dillard, who passed away last fall: http://www.clevelandseniors.com/people/harrison-dillard.htm
  4. I have a suspicion you wouldn't be able to tell as much as you think, at least not in the end.
  5. Today
  6. https://www.strongtowns.org/journal/2018/6/5/whats-up-with-all-those-empty-commercial-storefronts-in-new-mixed-use-developments
  7. This also reminds me of the MBTA's Silver line, which they brand as BRT. It starts out underground with catenary wires and then transitions to diesel not long after it goes above-grade. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_Line_(MBTA)
  8. I feel like the Port Authority needs to just come out and level with the public on what’s going on here. Theres too much money involved and too many of what seem from the outside to be massive red flags that I would hope that there’s more to this plan than what is made public. Overpay for a large functioning hotel to demolish it with no concrete plan or financing to replace it- when you already own a large buildable lot a block away- seems so insanely dumb and risky that there just has to be more to this you’d hope...
  9. The retail space at 9th and Euclid is $90/SF FWIW.
  10. Metro PCS has a pretty big footprint downtown - Terminal Tower and the 5th street arcade. I wish Verizon or Sprint would follow suit. The space on E9th and Euclid is perfect for a wireless carrier that's higher end the Metro PCS. Just not sure about the rent. Why do these landlords not negotiate their rent when their spaces remain vacant for years on end?
  11. I was taken by Tom McNair's tweet that Hingetown/Ohio City recent development is dense enough to support rail mass-transit. Recognizing that Cleveland probably can't afford a rail project, is it feasible, at reasonable cost, to connect the proposed west side BRT systems to the Tower City rail hub and run buses underground as far as W25th and Detoit via the Veterans Bridge lower level? It would speed up the trip and appeal if they didn't have to contend with downtown/Public Square traffic. Maybe throw in a stop at W6th or W9th and Superior? FWIW, the Paris Metro includes a couple of rubber-tired lines mixed with rail on shared right-of-way.
  12. Who says that MLB doesn't like irony? In the Astros first spring training game, fans with signs heckling the Astros got their signs stolen(!) - well confiscated - by stadium personnel:
  13. I still stand by that. But if it’s a three way race and Bloomberg looks viable I’ll go for Bloomberg
  14. The CBJ are trying hard to keep their playoff hopes alive - but the overtime and shootout rounds have been unkind this season. Columbus lost 4-3 via an eight-round shootout loss last night at Nashville. The Jackets are 0-4 in shootout rounds this season. In both overtime and shootout rounds this season the CBJ are 7-14. The NHL trading deadline is Monday the 24th. The games after the deadline next week are at home against Ottawa on Monday; at Minnesota on Tuesday; back at home against Minnesota on Friday; and at home against Vancouver on Sunday.
  15. It was another great article Ken, why the rewrite?? And what's the ETA? THANKS for your hard work!!
  16. The only nit I would pick: The international arrivals/departures center based on four of the low-numbered gates in today's Concourse C, as proposed in the current (2013?) Master Plan, is the best choice, since it locates the int'l gates more centrally to gates for any possible connecting flight. Hiking from the north end of your proposed Int'l Concourse to Concourse D would be daunting for lots of old/disabled/child-accompanied travellers. And if CLE is to have more than one flight to Europe in the mid-2020s, it will need all the connecting passengers that can be mustered.
  17. More reason to use the transit that's next to them . Take the train to Little Italy and walk
  18. I think this is a good tweet. Speaks to the challenges Bernie supporters face (you can't alienate everyone who isn't on your side right now) as well as moderates who fear Bernie is too far left. Everyone wanting to get Trump out of office will have to rally around someone. Right now, that looks like it'll be Sanders but it might not be in the end.
  19. The Great Eight became the 8th player in NHL history to reach 700 goals last night. Ovechkin was also the second fastest in games played to reach that mark. The fastest was The Great One. With 894 goals, Wayne Gretzky holds the record - a record thought to be out of reach. But at the rate Ovi is scoring - 49 & 51 in the past two seasons to lead the league and 42 so far this season, only 3 behind the league leader - Gretzky's goal record seems within Ovi's reach. Ovi is 34 and will be 35 at the beginning next season. Gretzky played until he was 38. Four more seasons at Ovi's current scoring rate would get him close to the 894-goal record. However, The Great One's assist record of 1,963 and point record of 2,857 still aren't anywhere close to being threatened.
  20. China's economy wouldn't go up and down so much if it was better-regulated.

    Voting

    I think this is all fair, and @freefourur my questions was more just a thought exercise than anything. However, in Jefferson's idea for a perfect government, direct representation locally would be the vehicle through which the "common man" could voice his or her opinion. For example, in Notes on the State of Virginia, Jefferson discusses making a meritocratic public school system (wherein the gentry could also buy their son's advancement). This system would see every person receiving an education through 6th grade, but only about 40-50% of the class earns the next grade beyond that point. He even refers to it as a mechanism for developing an informed class of leaders. These leaders would presumably go on to earn public office, and their votes in the lower house would appoint members to the Upper, along with the executive. In essence, it would work similarly to the way we make a lot of our decisions today. For example, I choose a financial advisor - who has to be certified as such - and he handled higher level decisions with me. Now, if I'm not happy with his decisions and/or my returns, he can be removed. Idk - you're all right and I'm not arguing your points. It's just difficult for me to assume that someone who puts no thought into it should have an equal vote for the President or Senate.
  22. MORPC Taking Public Comments on Metropolitan Transportation Plan -- Open House on Feb. 26 https://www.morpc.org/news/morpc-taking-public-comments-on-metropolitan-transportation-plan-open-house-next-week/ Upcoming Open House: MORPC will host a public open house about the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) at its offices at 111 Liberty Street, Suite 100 in the Brewery District on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020. Guests can stop by any time from 4-7 p.m. A formal presentation will take place at 6 p.m. Those wishing to provide feedback can access the draft strategies and projects at morpc.org/mtp2050. An interactive webmap is available to see all of the projects, and comments can be submitted directly on the webmap. In addition to the webmap, comments can be submitted by email to mtp@morpc.org or in writing to MORPC, 111 Liberty Street, Suite 100, Columbus, OH 43215, Attn: MTP. The comment period will close at 5 p.m. Friday, April 3, 2020. MORPC is the metropolitan planning organization for the Columbus urbanized area, and it is required to conduct a continuing, cooperative, and comprehensive transportation planning process. That planning process, in part, results in the MTP. This MTP will look 30 years into the future and identify projects as regional priorities – meaning they will be eligible for federal transportation funding to improve, maintain, and operate highways, public transit (COTA and Databus), bikeways, sidewalks, and related facilities. The MTP is a long-range planning document that identifies transportation system deficiencies, strategies, and projects in MORPC’s federally designated transportation planning area. The area includes: Delaware County; Franklin County; Bloom and Violet townships in Fairfield County; New Albany, Pataskala and Etna Township in Licking County; and Jerome Township in Union County.
  23. was this recently? Or back when you first started reporting on this project

  25. Location seems nice but unfortunately it's in the middle of two major roads and an active rail line. It needs a lot of work to be a more walkable area.
