  1. ^ funding a study to study these studies should be pretty easy to secure.
  2. More Money to be Wasted on Ridiculous Studies oops Cleveland hyperloop benefits would justify $29.8 billion price tag: study By Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer CLEVELAND, Ohio — A high-speed hyperloop line that could zoom passengers through a vacuum tube from Cleveland to Chicago and Pittsburgh could cost from $24.7 billion to $29.8 billion to build, depending on variations in the route and stops along the way. But the profits and economic benefits would justify the expense and attract the substantial private investment needed to make it happen. Those statements are among the key assertions of an 18-month, $1.3 million feasibility analysis scheduled for release Monday by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency and Los Angeles-based Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. The report, led by TEMS, a consulting firm based in Frederick, Maryland, constitutes what the authors believe is the most extensive hyperloop feasibility analysis released publicly to date, anywhere, said NOACA Executive Director Grace Gallucci, who discussed some of the report’s core findings ahead of Monday. https://www.cleveland.com/news/2019/12/benefits-would-justify-298-billion-cost-of-cleveland-hyperloop-line-according-to-study-to-be-unveiled-monday.html

    Ohio Home Rule

    That sounds a lot more reasonable. In CA (at least in San Diego) the "ban" is really just a 10 cent charge per plastic bag. Anyhow, it's worked. You almost never see plastic bags blowing all over the place any more.
  4. It's perpetually 1984 in China.
  5. No, I mean as President, what can he do? I know you're educated, so I'm expecting a good answer from you. Don't let me down!
  6. Seriously. I really would like to know what people are truly concerned about what a President Sanders or _________ is capable of doing that's so terrible. What could be worse than what is going on right now? [edit - so Trump hasn't escalated Afghanistan/Iraq/Iran, so credit there I suppose]
  7. Trump is far far crazier than Bernie. That's not even debatable lol. Sanders getting "Ron Pauled" here.

    Ohio Home Rule

    Opponents of the legislation believe business owners at the community level should have the right to decide for themselves whether to implement a ban or a fee, though. Wait, I'm confused. This bill forbids private business owners from not using plastic bags? That cannot be possible.
  9. We documented the sometimes-clumsy attempts of a mostly white town in Pennsylvania's Pocono foothills to co-exist with a flood of new Latino immigrants Hazelton, PA?
  10. 12.11.19 7:00 AM FUTURE OF PHILANTHROPY The world’s first 3D-printed neighborhood now has its first houses A giant 3D printer is currently squeezing out new homes in rural Mexico. Each one takes 24 hours and lets local families upgrade from a shack to a two-bedroom house. Could this be part of the global housing solution? https://www.fastcompany.com/90440406/the-worlds-first-3d-printed-neighborhood-now-has-its-first-houses

    This guy took 5 whole years to hand-draw a map of North America. North America: Portrait of a Continent is drawn completely by hand with colour pencil and pen. It is a 5 x 4 feet (150 x 120 cm) perspective projection of the entire region, spanning from Alaska to Panama; Greenland to the Caribbean. There are tens of thousands of features, including 600 individual cities and towns. https://www.antonthomasart.com/the-north-american-continent.html
  12. I really liked Phoenix Coffee in Ohio City and Loop Records in Tremont too. Hon. mention for the Rising Star in Hingetown, but outlets were scarce.
  13. Was difficult to watch that without remembering all of those zany, ornate Christmas decorations rotating from the ceiling.
