    One of America's Paleo-Education Departments just initiated a new thrust, in that Kentucky now intends to compete with Kansas: https://www.wcpo.com/news/state/state-kentucky/matt-bevin-encourages-kentucky-students-to-bring-their-bibles-to-school-on-thursday
  2. I don't think that's true. Providing that we're talking about GDP, the past year Cincinnati maintained Ohio's biggest economy.
  3. A new nightclub promises to add diversity to Downtown Cincinnati: https://www.wcpo.com/entertainment/local-a-e/new-upscale-lgbtq-nightclub-the-birdcage-opening-downtown
  4. FWIW, two upscale Cincinnati bars were ranked among "the world's best." They were also the only ones from Ohio to make this list. https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/09/14/two-cincinnati-drinkeries-named-worlds-best-bars.html
  5. Yup! From local media comes this scoop on UC's eye-opening win: https://www.wcpo.com/sports/college-sports/university-of-cincinnati-sports/underdog-cincinnati-bearcats-shock-ucla-bruins-26-17-in-season-opener

    Cincinnati: Kroger

    Some really big Kroger news today: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/08/14/kroger-partners-with-alibaba-to-sell.html Although it's too early to make any sweeping conclusions about this new Asian alliance, it can be considered a major move by Kroger. Here"s what two other media sources have said about such a partnership: https://www.wsj.com/articles/kroger-to-sell-groceries-on-alibaba-site-in-china-1534268657?mod=hp_lead_pos10 https://www.cincinnati.com/story/money/2018/08/14/kroger-teams-internet-juggernaut-alibaba-sell-groceries-china/988283002/

    Separation of Church & State

    I'm really apprehensive to see these kinds of Bronze Age dictums creeping back into America of the 21st century, CE... https://www.wcpo.com/news/national/-in-god-we-trust-now-must-be-displayed-in-all-florida-schools-school-buildings Such primitive religious onslaughts are clear violations of the separation of church & state.

    Elon Musk

    Agreed. This self anointed leader of his own parade has become tiresome to listen to. Somehow, Musk reminds me of that smug little authority on all things, Henry Kissinger - who, in his own era, just wouldn't shut up.

    Cincinnati: Kroger

    Although just conjecture at the moment, the new Kroger-Ocado alliance could shake up grocery shopping big time: https://www.wcpo.com/news/insider/game-changer-how-kroger-s-deal-with-ocado-could-reshape-the-industry Also of note, on a local level: https://www.wcpo.com/news/insider/despite-new-competition-kroger-co-keeps-gaining-market-share

    Columbus Crew Discussion

    Yesterday, the Columbus Crew became the focus of a major BBC sports story: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44259849
  12. I think that it's important to clarify that neither parent company mentioned above are headquartered in Columbus, OH. Columbus Ascena Retail's corporate headquarters are in Mahwah, NJ and NiSource's are in Merrillville, IN.
  13. As you mentioned, Worldpay (acquired by Vantiv) will undoubtedly remain in Cincinnati and become its next F500 company: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/01/16/cincinnati-might-have-just-added-a-fortune-500.html Unfortunately, there's an outside chance that this new company could also be acquired by the nation's largest bank: https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2018/05/14/worldpay-could-be-acquisition-target-analyst-says.html
  14. http://www.businessinsider.com/us-economy-by-metro-area-ranked-san-francisco-seattle-austin-2018-4#32-philadelphia-camden-wilmington-pa-nj-de-md-9 Yes. Any article with a gaffe this big loses all credibility: "Cincinnati had the fourth-lowest rate of job growth among the 40 largest metro areas, with non-farm payroll employment increasing just 0.5% between September 2017 and September 2018."
  15. FWIW, concerning streetcar blockage: https://www.wcpo.com/news/insider/streetcar-blockages-just-getting-worse-data-show
