  1. This is pretty much true of all Republican leaning states. They're largely poor, poorly educated, and unhealthy.
  2. To be fair this is a Danish study and not something done here in the US. I highly doubt there is that much of a law breaking difference here, and I would still argue that breaking laws would be more against cyclists than motorists.
  3. In the article it cited studies where women with equal skills to their partner are severely punished for taking time off to give birth and electing to be the one in the partnership to do the things needed to take care of the kids. It cites the increasingly high pay reward for working 50-60 hours a week (and not just for extra hours worked, but much higher hourly rate for those who can work those longer hours).
  4. Thought I'd share the below quote as I found it to be an incredibly profound take on a big reason why women are the secondary earners in a lot of families. "Women don’t step back from work because they have rich husbands, she said. They have rich husbands because they step back from work." https://www.bizjournals.com/cincinnati/news/2019/04/29/women-did-everything-right-then-work-got-greedy.html
  5. I can't believe once again people are posting conspiracy theories on this site and it's left unchecked. I guess let's start taking Seth Rich and Pizzagate while we're at it.
  6. Boring anecdote, but when I was looking for a new IT job 10 years ago I saw some postings at Kroger. I lived across the street from the Kroger Building on Central Parkway and found out that the IT jobs were all at their Mason location. I refused to even entertain a job that would require me to look at their corporate building every morning before commuting for ages to the burbs.
  7. And there goes any support I had for Buttigieg.
  8. At least close the existing skywalk to the Convention Center. That would take absolutely $0 to do. Not sure why that hasn't been done yet.
  9. The argument to get rid of the estate tax to save family farms is a myth. It rarely ever happened and the problem could have been solved with a specific carve out for the rare instances where it would apply. Getting rid of the estate tax was a giveaway to the ultra wealthy and served only to further bankrupt the country at the expense of 99.9% of the citizens of the USA.
  10. In that 15th and Vine picture it almost looks like the new construction was a computer generated image for getting design approval. Yeeesh....
  11. That article is behind a paywall. Can you post the actual statistics, because I'm incredibly doubtful of that assertion?
  12. Young people don't vote much at all. Someone like Biden who can appeal to moderates in all other age ranges would get a ton more votes than someone who appeals to young voters.
  13. I wouldn't give Tamaya that much credit. I've seen a lot of posts from her that are at best tone deaf and at worst incredibly racist. She even once posted that if you didn't attend some African American circus event (with plenty of clowns) then you were a racist. Um, no Tamaya, I'm not attending an event with lots of clowns because that's just creepy.
  14. Good Samaritan hit while helping crash victim in OTR https://local12.com/news/local/good-samaritan-hit-while-helping-crash-victim-in-otr "A good Samaritan is in the hospital after being hit by a car in Over-the-Rhine while trying to help another crash victim. It happened shortly before 3 a.m. at the corner of Central Parkway and Liberty Street."
  15. Pedestrian hit by vehicle in OTR http://www.fox19.com/2019/04/18/pedestrian-hit-by-vehicle-otr/ "A pedestrian was hit by a vehicle in Over-the-Rhine early Thursday, Cincinnati police said. Officers and firefighters responded to Vine and Liberty streets about 2 a.m., police said."
