  1. Cool metrics. Good find. Two biggest standouts: - Steady increase of students from China - Steady decrease of students from Ohio Also interesting to see the steady uptick of students from California and Illinois (presumably from Chicagoland).
  2. The acceptance rate for Case Western Reserve is now down to a head-spinning 27%. And even more geographically diverse... most notably, only 18% are from Ohio..! By the numbers: Meet the Class of 2023 AUGUST 20, 2019 Cars have been unloaded. New roommates have spent their first nights in their new home. Parents have bid farewell. The class photo on DiSanto Field has been captured. And with that, we welcome the Case Western Reserve University Class of 2023. The new students were chosen from 28,987 applications, resulting in an acceptance rate of 27%—marking the most selective admissions year in the university’s history. Members of the Class of 2023 represent 46 states in addition to Guam, Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., and 24 countries. They hail from the following areas: Middle Atlantic: 25% Ohio: 18% West and southwest: 14% Outside the U.S.: 13% Midwest: 12% South: 10% New England: 6% https://thedaily.case.edu/by-the-numbers-meet-the-class-of-2023/

  4. Geez Lakewood....that's some impressive % gain: Lakewood’s remarkable recovery in home sale prices, a Cuyahoga County leader Today 6:37 AM By Rich Exner, cleveland.com The median price for single-family homes of $196,000 in Lakewood over the first seven months this year was up 52% from just $129,000 during the same period in 2014. “This new push with a lot of people wanting to live in walkable neighborhoods is driving this. I refer to Lakewood as the West Side Cleveland Heights. But it’s easier to get to,” said Pereksta, an agent in Howard Hanna’s Lakewood office. With an estimated 50,100 people packed into 5.5 square miles, Lakewood is Ohio’s most densely populated city. The main commercial streets of Madison and Detroit avenues stretch the length of the town, meaning no one lives more than a few blocks from a place to grab a drink or a bite to eat. https://www.cleveland.com/datacentral/2019/08/lakewoods-remarkable-recovery-in-home-sale-prices-a-cuyahoga-county-leader.html

  6. Cuyahoga Falls is really becoming a beer mecca. My favorite brewery in NEO is already Missing Mountain. Ohio Brewing Co. up and running in Cuyahoga Falls (photos, video) Posted Aug 9, 2019 By Marc Bona, cleveland.com CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio - Chris Verich is a well-traveled guy. The owner of Ohio Brewing Co. has had many addresses for his brewery over the years, with the latest being Cuyahoga Falls. "I was happy at Highland Square," he said about his most recent address in Akron, "but I got contacted by Cuyahoga Falls. They wanted us to be a linchpin for economic development." He left Highland Square in late 2017, bought the Cuyahoga Falls location in January 2018, and then oversaw more than a year's worth of construction. He worked with an historical architectural firm and received state historical tax credits for work in the 1917 building. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/08/ohio-brewing-co-up-and-running-in-cuyahoga-falls-photos-video.html

  9. How about USA’a first? If you thought traveling by Hyperloop to Chicago in 28 minutes was fast, how about Pittsburgh in 9? Posted: 4:29 PM, Aug 08, 2019 Updated: 6:08 PM, Aug 08, 2019 CLEVELAND — The results of the Hyperloop feasibility study started 18 months ago won't be released until this fall, but those behind the $1.2 million study tell News 5 the results are very promising.

  13. Lakewood Planning Commission gives Columbus-based developer approval for Detroit Avenue projects Updated 6:01 AM; Today 5:44 AM By John Benson, special to cleveland.com LAKEWOOD, Ohio -- The Planning Commission last week gave its approval for two large mixed-use projects proposed for former Detroit Avenue car dealerships. Jerome Solove Development Inc. (JSDI) received approval for a mixed-use overlay district at the Steve Barry Buick car dealership site (16000 Detroit Ave.) to build 160 new apartments and a 3,500 square feet of commercial retail space. JSDI’s other proposed development is at the former Spitzer dealership (13815 Detroit Ave.) with 150 apartments and 1,500 to 3,500 square feet of commercial retail space and added parking. The 2.2-acre site is located between Parkwood Road and Wyandotte Avenue. “The city hasn’t seen new multi-family construction of this scale in over 50 years,” Sylvester said. “So in the interest of just us updating our housing stock, we feel it’s important for the city to consider projects like this. https://www.cleveland.com/community/2019/08/lakewood-planning-commission-gives-columbus-based-developer-approval-for-detroit-avenue-projects.html
  14. Cleveland’s college football team should be pretty solid this year. Returning Coach Mike Brown’s son, Cameron, who was #2 in sacks last year in the nation. And statistically nationally ranked ... Sophomore QB and Junior WR. I encourage everyone to check out at least one game this year at the unique and urban University Circle setting of DiSanto Field:
