PD Gets Cavs’ Series Score Wrong, Reverses Game 6 Winner & Loser

Writes Like She Talks - Fri, 05/15/2015 - 17:54
It’s just a print paper but I still get it. I still read it. So do a few hundred thousand folks, especially with the Cavs moving forward in the NBA conference post-season. So even though my 18 year old daughter said, “Mom, no one reads the paper anyway,” this set of typos, in just this…

Coloring Makes the World Go Round

Gloria Ferris's Blog - Tue, 04/14/2015 - 18:42

So glad that coloring is seen as acceptable for adults. I believe those of us who know what is important already had the advantage.

When I was blue as a kid or things just weren’t going right as a kid, my Aunt Dadie would say we need to get out the crayons and coloring books. After an hour of spending time coloring with her never saying a word, I usually forgot what had been making my world less than perfect.  I did the same for my daughters and now we all do it for my granddaughters. Coloring soothes the soul and rebalances the world.

and consider buying this coloring book  “Coloring Flower Mandelas”

 

I am think there should be a coloring book of nautilus chambers soon.

Students, builders, museum trustees hear about the leading green buildings in the world

Green City Blue Lake - Fri, 10/19/2012 - 10:05

The Bullitt Center in Seattle has been called the greenest building in the world. Its developer, Chris Rogers of Point32, credits the Bullitt Foundation, which subscribed to the Living Building Challenge, a paradigm shifting green building process that Rogers says, "goes way beyond LEED."

Living Buildings put in to bricks and mortar (or bio-based materials) the vision that two decades ago the likes of architect Bill McDonough and futurist David Orr spun from beautiful prose in to the first generation of green buildings. The vision was always to design buildings that act like a tree, that are abundant, producing more than taking. How will the Bullitt Center, which embodies those ideals, shift the paradigm in how we build?

"I think would be great if we were the greenest building in the world—for a week," Rogers told the Building with Nature Symposium which is introducing new ideas about building for the future in to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History's rebuilding process. "What we learned can be replicated, but you need to look at local conditions to fit with your climate and culture."

Museum hears inspired ideas from its architect at Building with nature symposium

Green City Blue Lake - Thu, 10/18/2012 - 13:10

"We want a building that itself embodies how we can live in the future, in a highly sustainable way," Cleveland Museum of Natural History Director Evalyn Gates explained to 450 attendees the purpose of the museum's Building with Nature symposium, a free and open to the public event at the museum today. "Our experience with the SmartHome showed us that we want a (new) building that cost less to operate and maintain and will inspire all of us about how we live on this planet."

To inspire the museum to reach for the stars, Dr. Gates, an astrophysicist, and GreenCityBlueLake Institute Director David Beach assembled a high wattage panel—from the designer of literally the world's greenest building to the country's foremost experts on energy who figured out how to green the renovation of the Empire State Building. These are big thinkers but also the 'do-ers' -- practitioners who have faced skepticism and long odds and in the end broke new ground for all of us. That list started with Curtis Fentress whose firm is the architect of record for the Museum's proposed redevelopment and addition.
