  1. We are living in a mafia state modeled after Russia. The loyalists commit crimes and get rewarded, Trump and his Republican inner circle have looted our country while Americans are dying en masse.


    Meanwhile the people who are actually protecting our country get punished, fired, harassed and called traitors. Do everything  you can to get them out of power and into prison where they deserve to die.

  2. American Passports Are Worthless Now (Map)


    Americans have gone from having access to most of the world to being banned from most of it. Today, Americans are only allowed in a few Caribbean islands and the Balkans. An American passport is now worthless. Worse than worthless, it’s a plague.


    In the absence of a humane government, America is now ruled by COVID-19. Welcome to the Plague States of America.






  3. From an interoffice memo written yesterday by interim GM Floun'say Caver.....


    At the July 14, 2020 meeting of the Operational Planning & Infrastructure Committee, staff will present the schedule adjustments that will take effect August 9, 2020. Service frequency will be increased on selected bus routes to ensure that enough capacity is available for fall 2020 ridership.


    Also, the B-Line trolley route will operate every 15 minutes on a modified alignment that serves Public Square in both directions. All three Park-N-Ride routes will be restored at a 30-minute frequency that is sufficient to accommodate customers who will not be working from home this fall. The Blue Line and Green Line rail service will be restored to the pre-shutdown schedule.


    System-wide (bus and rail combined) weekly vehicle-hours of service will grow to 93 percent of pre-COVID levels.

    Saw this meme going around today. Unfortunately this is not the first meme I've seen of an Ohio COVID denier who later died from it.




    I googled to see more info. Turns out it's legit. He was from Port Clifton. His obituary posted at several sites, including the Sandusky Register.

  5. I'm loving what Milwaukee is doing. This might be worth cross-posting in the non-Ohio development section so more people will see it.


    BTW, I'm going to be in Milwaukee three weeks from today. I'm looking forward to seeing what they're doing with the streetcar and downtown development. They have more construction cranes over downtown than any Ohio city.

    If I'm reading this right...they only have 341 ICU beds in the entire state??  For a population of ~3m.  Ohio has 1,239 ICU beds and about 11m people...so I guess not too far off.


    Ohio has about 3,674 ICU beds. Based on best available data, we estimate that 44% (1,616) are currently occupied by non-COVID patients. Of the 2,058 ICU beds remaining, 289 are needed by COVID cases, or 14% of available beds. This suggests there is likely enough capacity to absorb a wave of new COVID infections.




  7. I Cited Their Study, So They Disavowed It

    If scientists retract research that challenges reigning orthodoxies, politics will drive scholarship.


    Psychologists Joseph Cesario of Michigan State and David Johnson of the University of Maryland analyzed 917 fatal police shootings of civilians from 2015 to test whether the race of the officer or the civilian predicted fatal police shootings. Neither did. Once “race specific rates of violent crime” are taken into account, the authors found, there are no disparities among those fatally shot by the police. These findings accord with decades of research showing that civilian behavior is the greatest influence on police behavior.

    All counties show zero right now, that hasn't been updated.

    But Summit's trend is strongly downward since July 1st.   

    Statewide the deaths continue their downward trend.

    There's nothing there that might convince the skeptics that the threat isn't being grossly overstated.  Especially as it has come to light that with repeated testing of a recovering patient, each positive test is considered a new case.


    Ohio's daily cases continue to increase over the 7-day moving average as they have for three weeks now:

    FYI Summit County alert status has increased:



    Because daily case counts are on the upswing again for Summit County, with spikes higher than they've been since April:

    Not sure how this will play out for National Generals presence in Cleveland.


    Good question. This definitely bears watching. Certainly the history of corporate consolidations since the 1980s has not been kind to Cleveland. But as companies have consolidated into fewer cities, the costs of living and of paying employees in those cities has gone up. We've seen a few companies recently open up or relocate to Cleveland to reduce their costs of doing business.

    Forgot to mention this a few months back, but I work with Minutemen on some various projects and the move to the PD building fell thru. I don't remember at this point what caused it to fall thru but it's not happening (money, government regulations, or issues with other tenants, one of those?). It wasn't because they got a better offer in Brecksville. Minutemen's business has multiple facets, but one of the key parts is its staffing agency that they would not be interested in moving away from transit and ability for people to walk in. I don't believe its worker's comp business would be served by leaving for the burbs either.  I will try to see if I can find what they are planning to do now.  They continue to grow and do still have a need for a bigger space.


    Thanks. If they want to keep it off the record, feel free to let me know by personal messenger here at UO.
