Office of Citizen
Rest in Peace,
I emailed this letter to Mr. Quinn on the morning of Tuesday, 10/28/14. I have not received a reply yet. Dear Mr. Quinn: Thank you for NEOMG’s efforts at expanding the tools available for the public to learn about this year’s candidates for public office. Unfortunately, it appears that the video from your gubernatorial endorsement…
Millennials won’t stand for the putting up then taking down of online published material. They’ve matured in the EFF, Ed Snowden, Wikipedia era where transparency is the default and demanding it doesn’t take a back seat to waiting for power brokers to come to their senses because they’re losing money. Yesterday I wrote about why…
As local and national news sources ask questions of the NEOMG leaders as to why they pulled a video they’d previously made public, and those questions remain unanswered, it’s important to put down for the record why we care that the video has been removed and why it matters that the news outlet that created…
The Plain Dealer NEOMG, The Public and The Video or, Transparency, Engagement and 21st Century Media
Transparency and public engagement have taken a huge hit this election cycle in Ohio, not to belittle the other major topics that have also received far too little scrutiny when it comes to policy expectations of those seeking public office: natural resources (coal, renewables, Lake Erie), education (Common Core, early childhood education) or making Medicaid…
I saw this quote on State Rep. Bob Hagan’s Facebook wall this morning: One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. Plato Maybe you’ve been asked by a spouse or a daughter or a friend, Who are you voting for? Maybe you’ve even…
This MyScore is an incredible scam. There is no disclosure. There are no terms. I kept on waiting for the disclosures and terms of the relationship to come to me by email, and they never did. These people needs to be driven off the internet.Why is there a charge on my card? Answer: It’s a monthly charge for myscore.com. If you’re here you have a few questions.
And we have answers. Who are we?
MyScore is a US-based financial services company.Why are you charging me?
These are charges for the credit montioring program you signed up for online.Why is there a $1 charge for a free trial?
Your score is free, but your credit report is only $1 at myscore.com. You get to try our credit monitoring product free for 7 days you can cancel the membership at anytime during the trial period.Why do I have a $29.95 charge?
If you don’t cancel your membership within the 7-day trial period, you will be charged a $29.95 membership fee for each month that you continue the membership.Is this a scam?
No, it’s not. We go to great lengths to make sure that people see the terms of our offer on our websites, emails and advertisements. We also ask our customers to agree to our terms and conditions before they can sign up for our program..This doesn’t sound familiar.
If the myscore.com doesn’t ring a bell, you may want to ask other members of your family who might have access to your credit card. We’ve found that 95% of the time the confusion arises from someone else in the family signing up for the product.How do I cancel my account?

Nothing puts pressure on a political blogger like being noted as a political blogger to read a week before elections. That said, here comes a humblebrag: I’ve gotten a lot of nudges lately to write, please write (as well as run, please run). It’s nice to hear that, not gonna be shy about saying so.…
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."

"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.
