  1. It seems like the whole dream of Cleveland being a blockchain hub has died. Even the conference for next year will only be two days (versus 4 days) and focus on more than just blockchain including artificial intelligence and other disruptive technologies. https://www.crainscleveland.com/technology/blockland-solutions-2020-will-be-shorter-and-focus-more-broadly-emerging-technologies
  2. Someone help me understand this. Does this mark a second change of direction? Like it went from blockchain to tech (including startups) and now is going mostly to startups with subsidized rents meaning the big tech companies will likely have no presence here?
  3. Beautiful, historic theatre in Warren was saved and is about to have its first show since it closed 45 years ago. https://www.wkbn.com/news/local-news/historic-robins-theater-in-warren-opening-for-first-show-after-renovations/?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook_WKBN_27_Youngstown_OH&fbclid=IwAR0VZTgEs8cswKtB3OeYMUSAiof7qvnpx7sBg4p2whCy1X8X0hns3hp8R2M
  4. I wasn’t talking about the actual article. I did watch the interview. I thought it was nice that they pointed out that Cleveland is an underrated city and gets a bad rap for no reason. I’m not saying a whole article should have been written on it but I still think the few positive comments that were said warranted it being on this thread. Don’t think that was being needy but to each his own I guess.
  5. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/12/spider-mans-tom-holland-tells-jimmy-kimmel-hes-a-browns-fan-and-loves-cleveland.html Some nice publicity! Both Tom Holland and Jimmy kimmel say some nice things about Cleveland in the interview!
  6. From the Vindy today. Unfortunately it looks like nothing has changed in terms of the low paying jobs. https://www.vindy.com/news/local-news/2019/12/gm-to-make-announcement-this-morning/ The proposal is not part of the contract GM and UAW negotiated earlier this year. Speculation at the time from sources familiar with the situation was that negotiators shied away from including it to avoid setting a precedent for lesser-paying jobs, which are expected to be in the neighborhood of $17 per hour. The top wage earners at the assembly plant earned about $30 per hour.
  7. It wasn’t a part of the official deal from my understanding, it was more of a promise to make the batteries to help the Lordstown area out. https://www.crainscleveland.com/manufacturing/gms-offer-lifeline-lordstown-had-catch-lower-pay Here is a Crains article where they talk about the pay topping out at only $17/hr. I currently live in the area and that has what the understanding has been but things could have changed and I am just unaware.
  8. I think that is partially it. I have heard and read that these probably won't even be union jobs and the wages will be 2/3 of what it would be with GM. It'd enable them to distance themselves from what people expect if they held onto the plant in terms of wages/union jobs. Also, don't have much knowledge on this but I think the electric battery plant would be and look completely different than what the Cruze plant is/was.

  10. It really is pathetic that a Fortune 500 company has been bought by a Cleveland company and there still is nothing from either Cleveland.com or Crains.
  11. Honestly I just want some descent presence in the skyline. If it is below 400ft I will be disappointed. If it is 5-600ft I’ll be thrilled!
  12. Looking at all the potential retailers I feel like this would destroy the ability for the heart of downtown to gain the retailers we’ve been so hoping would soon attract with the increasing population growth. Also, the parking and access to interstates makes it so people will come to the outlets, shop, then leave.
  13. Just looked at the bls numbers. 3.2% unemployment is pretty incredible. The labor force did drop by 700 people. But employment was up 13k YoY which is only a little bit higher to what it’s been doing recently (around 10-11k YOY). So to say the shrinking labor force is the main reason is misleading. Hopefully the labor force will start growing but at least employment is thriving.
  14. To me the article makes it pretty clear. Sherwin Williams wants to stay here. Other places are offering better incentives. As long as the state and city match we are good.
