  1. Those are good points and frightening outcomes for sure. I wonder what impact the dismantling of the economy will have on people and their health long term. Impossible to measure, but if mom and pop restaurants and businesses disappear and big companies lay off thousands + and we go into depression, how many people will be in dire situations that could lead to civil unrest? Obviously, many in positions of leadership have deemed it worth it.
  2. How many people have died from the Diamond Princess? The most recent article I could find is from late February and the total was 6. 6 out of over 3700. South Korea, who many has said did a great job of testing thousands upon thousands of people have a death rate under 1%. All the data right now could be skewed because only the people with symptoms and doctors orders are being tested in the Cleveland area. So if any number die from Ohio the percentage will be high until a multitude of people are tested to get the true data. What about all the asymptomatic and people that are just treating this as a cold/flu? They are not being counted. Scary, because we aren't as familiar with this virus, but is all the shutdown and complete disruption of every facet of society worth it? I don't know the answer to that, but I think more studies like the Diamond Princess would be helpful. Maybe something along the lines of surveys the do for approval ratings or something similar where they survey 1500 people and extrapolate the data. So we find a city and test X number of people and track it. Just trying to discuss instead of posting every headline that comes across pick your news site.
  3. The Canton Hall of Fame Marathon is canceled. Unlike the two previously mentioned, they are not moving theirs to the fall. The reason given, to not take runners away from the other fall marathons (Akron, Columbus, Air Force in Dayton, etc.)
  4. I am hearing that United is further reducing its footprint at Hopkins. CLE will no longer be a base for regional jets. Sounded like they won't originate or terminate (stay parked overnight) at CLE anymore and a reduction of ground crew hours.
  5. YABO713's post led me to this site from DCA (Downtown Cleveland Alliance), http://junipercre.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=3d80977bb16f4125be9e0cffb808874b . Nice summary of downtown!
  6. Maybe national retail chains just need more surface parking downtown before committing.
  7. Offer them their own "smile" island. Iconic and visible from space! Think Dubai.
  8. Fascinating map. Any idea what is causing all the light in North Dakota?
  9. If I recall, the City Stars were promoted and the new league had minimum stadium capacity requirements. CSU was too small and they ended up playing in Bedford. So getting promoted ended up being the beginning of the end.
  10. https://www.ohio.com/akron/sports/university-of-akron/university-of-akron-football-zips-wanted-to-stay-and-play-in-nebraska-but-could-not-work-out-the-logistics-payment-in-limbo Looks like it was lack of hotel rooms for Akron. :o
  11. If CLE does get a new team I think a good name could be Sixth City Foresters or the Cleveland Foresters.
  12. Interesting article about a potential aerial tram at Disney World. Cleveland is even mentioned. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/travel/attractions/the-daily-disney/os-bz-disney-world-gondolas-cable-cars-plans-20170418-story,amp.html
  13. ^They do, and that is part of the problem, there is no atmosphere in the 'burbs and while they encourage tailgating there is also a strict no alcohol policy. Look to FC Cincinnati for some best practices, urban stadium, close to bars. Obviously, FC Cincinnati is a higher level of soccer, but I could see Cleveland being a little higher profile than it is.
