WIND TURBINE TRAVELS:
Cleveland Foundation and Cuyahoga Port Authority  - take a Road Trip to San Diego

Cleveland Foundation’s head Ronn Richard and Foundation wind advisor Mr. Stuebi want to bolster Cleveland’s poor public image by putting “about 10” wind turbines “3 miles out” in Lake Erie North of Downtown Cleveland.  They are encouraging the Cuyahoga County Commissioners to seek tax payer funding for the project.  This is a mistake – for the reasons I have outlined in the past on this blog. 

 If Cleveland and NEO are to be extricated from becoming more and more inconsequential – as has happened steadily over the past 40 years while the Foundation’s personnel,  and Mr. Roman of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, and the staff of the Cuyahoga Port Authority, and other purported “leaders” have collected their salaries and benefits – we need to pay attention not to gambling casinos and convention centers or grand plans of shining white turbines on Lake Eire – but to rudimentary manufacturing support infrastructure. 

Today the Port of Cleveland is obsolete. It has no modern lifting equipment for either containers nor for other heavy cargo.  Meanwhile, the Port Authority  spends its time and our money on eminent domain actions  for its private development friends. 

If NEO is going to be in the wind turbine manufacturing business – the Port of Cleveland must have adequate cranes.  Instead of using $900,000.00 of taxpayer money to “study” a lake front plan with no public input, the Port Authority should study the economics behind modernizing the Port.   A trip to San Diego would allow Mr. Carney (who should resign) and Mr. Richards to see the trade that adequate lifting equipment and dockage brings…scores of GE turbine nacelles and steel turbine tower sections – all made overseas - are stockpiled on the waterfront. The 300 E Gottwald mobile crane http://www.gottwald.com/gottwald/export/gottwaldsite/de/news/pdf/Construction_Materials_uk.pdf does the heavy lifting for the Port of San Diego.  This 100 ton capacity crane can also be barge mounted - perhaps for setting those turbine towers in Lake Erie!  (probably not enough capacity for setting the nacelles)  Heavy haul trucks are pulling the machinery out onto the interstate highways daily for installation in the desert wind regimes of Southern California.

Gentlemen, I encourage you to practice Kaizen, go to San Diego – not Vegas -  to see what the Cleveland Port Authority should be investing in.

Amazing photo and port

Wow, Jeff. Did you take this photo and the one of the many turbines? You should indicate the source of these great photos.

And I think you are right about the wind situation. But I have a serious question for you. Knowing all the people involved in planning wind in NEO and how things are developing around the world, how do you think "we" should spend the first $1 million, $10 million and $100 million developing wind as a power source and industry in NEO?

DIGITAL VISUAL HIGH

Hello Norm!
 

The evening silhouetted wind turbines which I posted and you mastheaded on Realneo I shot on the way out of downtown Palm Springs just before dusk last Thursday.  There is no digital manipulation of the shot - the vast number of turbines and blades is a result of compressing the view by using a 12x optical zoom and a tripod to stabilize the shot for the low light.  Though the file size on Realneo is quite small, the original is a10 mega pixel RAW file.  The Coronado Bridge/San Diego Port photo is shot with a 10X optical zoom from the west deck of the San Diego Conference Center, which is about a mile from the tallest port crane and the  stack of white turbine towers right under the crane.   Again, the file size on Realneo is tiny, while the original was a 2 mega pixel JPEG file.    Except for your shot of the Gelato Bldg which you kindly added to one of my posts, and the Business Week screen grab,  all the photos up on the Buster  blog are from either my 7 year old Sony or more recently from a contemporary Panasonic DMZ FZ50.   I get a lot of satisfaction from working with the color (especially in winter) and the articulate forms waiting out there to photograph...

And Norm, thanks for kicking up Realneo as a great canvas on which  everyone can plaster their images!

 

Why R Russian Porn sites linking to San Diego wind turb report?

 above image is a screen shot of tracking report showing typical .ru links.    "Link Spam" is the term for links to a url that are irrelevant/off topic/disconnected.  

On the right hand column on the Realneo home page is the "Popular Content Today" que.    Realneo Administration last week noticed that a 2007 report titled 

GE WIND TURBINES - SAN DIEGO PORT CAN HANDLE THEM - NOT CLEVELAND - Vote NO ISSUE 108! With Passion!

was for a few days running  listed in the "Popular Content Today" que.    

Why would this 7 year old report be hit?  Maybe some school teacher assigned the kids to do a report on San Diego?

Administration looked at the "referers" - the ip addresses of the web sites that were sending traffic to the report - and found that Russian Porn sites were linking to the GE Wind Turbine report.  

Why would that be?

Link Spam is seen by Google Analytics and - if the link is irrelevant - Google down grades the content being linked to.  

A porn link to a realneo report about GE Turbines in San Diego is going to result in Google returning the Realneo report lower down in a search. 

What is the rationale for a porn site in Russia to take the time/labor $ to install irrelevant links to Realneo?

Would/could there be a monetary reason?   Somebody paying the Russian web site to put up derogatory links?

I have some ideas ....how about your ideas?

 

Would the Cuyahoga Port Authority pay a consultant to link Spam?

 More and more link spam is linking/refering to the San Diego can do it/Cleveland can't do it report from a few years back. 

Why is that?

Well, one reason could very probably be because the Cleveland Cuyahoga County Port Authority has paid a schill outfit like Reputation.com to buff up their on-line image.  

But to no avail. 

Realneo is here. 247364

Stalwart.

While outfits like Reputation.com collect the cash.

Would someone please file a public records request with the Port Authority asking who they have paid for PR?

 And Google folks, this is a message/note to you:

Link Spam is a vulgar commercial effort to game your algorithysms. 

Google, you need a higher level of awareness to look through the first iteration of link spam.

Can you do this Sergy?

Admin will provide another screen shot of the Russian URL sites which are link-spamming the Cleveland Cuyahoga County Port Authority report on realneo.us soon.
