  1. BTW, the Taft Stadium is moving really quickly. I saw bleacher/grandstands going up yesterday and masonry construction for the locker rooms etc moving quickly too.
  2. In this new proposal there is an island only in the block between Elm and Race, and there is a crosswalk mid-block at Pleasant Street. I like this one block. The rest of the design is too much like it is now. Left turns from westbound Liberty traffic south onto Republic Street should be eliminated with an island
  3. The theater is awesome, but it also has tons of problems: it has no rear stage and no room to expand, there are structural issues, plumbing issues and most of all, not enough room to fit all the stuff that would be needed in a modern theater. I'm not sure what the solution is, but I really liked it when they played movies in there. That worked.
  4. It is amazing how much broken glass is all over the city. There are also stray screws from construction sites, but mostly broken glass everywhere. It is hard to avoid getting flats.
  5. OK, I listened to the audio, and Schiff says thanks for calling, we'll refer this to the FBI and get back with you, which is just what he should have said.
  6. Trump’s Cabinet Is Increasingly Bare https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-04-08/donald-trump-s-cabinet-is-increasingly-bare
  7. ^any subsidized housing will have these issues. The building next to me is owned by Model Mgt and the tenants play loud music and throw diapers out their windows. I don't think you can blame OTRCH.
  8. Trump Has Now Shifted $1.3 Million Of Campaign-Donor Money Into His Business Donald Trump has charged his own reelection campaign $1.3 million for rent, food, lodging and other expenses since taking office... ... “I don’t need anybody’s money,” he announced on the day he launched his 2016 campaign, standing inside the marble atrium at Trump Tower. “I’m using my own money. I’m not using the lobbyists. I’m not using donors. I don’t care. I’m really rich.” https://www.forbes.com/sites/danalexander/2019/03/20/trump-has-now-shifted-13m-of-campaign-donor-money-into-his-business/#496b7cb67aaf
  9. From my experience it is several reasons. Firstly, the city is a bureaucracy and the employees only can do so much. Secondly the people who own buildings like this are very good at being hard to find and transferring the property right before the City catches up to them. Thirdly, the City has a hard time serving summons and citations to people or corporations who are out of state
  10. When I was looking for a building to buy about 4 years ago, I researched that building at 650 W McMicken and the owner was unreachable. The Building Dept had condemnation orders on it and there was a lot of water getting in and trees growing inside. It's worse than it looks from the photo. The owner is currently listed as: US CHINA BUSINESS ASSOCIATION 1076 GLOUCHESTER HABOR SCHAUMBURG IL 60193 Sucks when bad owners get these buildings.
  11. Bitcoin Has Saved My Family “Borderless money” is more than a buzzword when you live in a collapsing economy and a collapsing dictatorship. The local market for Bitcoins broke a record on April 17, reaching $1 million worth on that day alone, Bloomberg reported. Venezuela has been ranking second worldwide in volume of activity on LocalBitcoins.com, after Russia. ... during the week ending on Feb. 16, people in Venezuela traded about $6.9 million on LocalBitcoins.com https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/23/opinion/sunday/venezuela-bitcoin-inflation-cryptocurrencies.html?
  12. Hogan rips RNC for shielding Trump from primary challenge The Maryland governor, weighing a White House bid...accused the Republican National Committee of going to extraordinary lengths to shield the president from a primary.. Trump has also rolled out a 2020 campaign organization that incorporates the RNC and his campaign into a single entity, with the reelection campaign and committee merging their field and fundraising programs into a joint entity known as Trump Victory. Traditionally, a presidential reelection committee has worked side-by-side with the national party committee but not overtaken it. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/02/21/larry-hogan-2020-trump-1179635
  13. They are ticketing today for the OTR parking permit. At least 50% of the cars parked on Republic Street got a $50 ticket in the last hour.
  14. “North Korean policy was to escalate the crisis of war to justify nuclear weapons,” .. ...“President Trump fell into this trap,” as seen in his rhetoric at the United Nations, where he proclaimed “the major possibility of war.” That was “a major strategic mistake,” the culmination of “a strategy that led the international community to fear nuclear war exactly as Kim wanted.” “If the U.S. is trying to achieve denuclearization, it will require North Korea to discard its nuclear weapons,” But that’s not going to happen for one basic reason: “If they take out nuclear weapons, what else do they have? Nothing.” In short, Kim made a chump of Trump from the beginning, and that is not likely to change next week. -Thae Yong Ho, North Korean diplomat, second-ranking person in Pyongyang’s London embassy who defected in 2016 https://www.thedailybeast.com/a-north-korean-defector-shows-how-kim-makes-a-chump-of-trump/
  15. Anyone on this forum doing Crossfit? If so, have you had any injuries? I started 6 months ago and it really works for me. I'm over 50 and had never really gone to a gym before. I'm starting to feel toned for the first time in my life. I need to be in a class setting for a hard workout. I'm too tempted to quit or go easy if I am alone in a weight room.
