Today, I was fortunate to hear Sandor Katz discuss microorganisms and understanding how communities can determine our overall health.  Sudhir, Jenita, Frank G. and many more were in attendance today, so you will hear many reports.

MANY MAKING TOO MUCH, TOO MANY MAKING NOTHING

 While some people are struggling to keep a roof over their heads and feed and clothe themselves and their children too many are living too high in these desperate economic times.

 It’s pretty discouraging when you have to depend on the greedy to save you.

Citizen Dashboard proposal

Submitted by marccanter on Fri, 03/13/2009 - 23:10.

Howdy.

My name is Marc Canter.  I was the guy who first introduced Norm Roulet to Drupal like 5 years ago. (or was it four? - it's hard to keep track.)

Anyway I've recently been working with Norm on a new proposal called the 'Citizen Dashboard'.  Its been fashioned for Cuyahoga County - but could (obviously) be used anywhere. I've posted it on my blog and facebook today and I'll be flogging this horse as I collect input from you folks.  That's my next step.

So please - HAVE AT IT!

A Tale of Two Churches

Submitted by Susan Miller on Fri, 03/13/2009 - 19:02.

Last evening at a block club meeting in Ohio City, I was made aware of a great potential loss to Cleveland's built environment and history. I was invited to view a presentation to the block club group concerning two churches in that near westside neighborhood. I asked the researcher to share some of his voluminous research and documentation with readers of realneo. The following is respectfully submitted on behalf of Tim Barrett.

'NEWS REPORT" OR FRONT PAGE AD

Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 03/13/2009 - 14:52.

The Plain Dealer announcement of Dan Gilbert’s casino proposal looked very much as a free front page, glitz-up color ad for gambling: $1.8 billion in annual revenue, 20,000 jobs and $60 million in tax income.

TRUTH IN JOURNALISM - SO HARD TO FIND

Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 03/13/2009 - 13:36.

Anyone who watched Jon Stewart’s dissection last night of Jim Cramer, of CNBC - and really all “conventional” journalism - got a lesson in why newspapers and TV news simply cannot – or will not - serve the American public.

FALSE DEPICTION OF CORPORATE INTERESTS CORRUPTS

Submitted by Roldo on Fri, 03/13/2009 - 12:26.

I thought it rather amusing that the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) listed its priorities for stimulus money from Washington recently as the Plain Dealer quoted Sherwin-Williams CEO Chris Conner, GCP’s chairman. Just the guy who would know what the ordinary Cleveland resident most needs. Laughably, three pages over the PD by happenstance reports Conners’s annual income. A measly annual rate of $6,203,510.

 Just another regular guy telling us what to do with our public money.

if you can't kill it, don't eat it

Submitted by Susan Miller on Thu, 03/12/2009 - 12:42.

Those are the words my influential older brother delivered to me about 35 years ago. I may have been consuming a hamburger or some such at the time. I decided on vegetarian eating during the months when my leg was in a cast - I was 16. I was reading through the pages of Gray's Anatomy and helping my mother prepare dinner. As we boned a chicken breast, I had a more visceral experience of my own anatomy - the filmy stuff between the skin and muscle is called fascia. I was able to inspect the muscle becoming tendon and ligament - it's attachment to the bone.

THE SAINT AND HIS DISCIPLES

Submitted by Quest-News-Serv... on Thu, 03/12/2009 - 02:19.

THE SAINT AND HIS DISCIPLES

A saint asked his disciples, 'Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?'

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, 'Because we lose our calmness, we shout because of that.'

'But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you?' asked the saint.

'Isn't it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you're angry?'

A Glimpse into Drupal's Open Source Process

Submitted by Jeff Schuler on Wed, 03/11/2009 - 20:37.

Drupal is free and open-source software. Anybody can download, use, modify, repackage, and redistribute it (event at a price,) freely. Open source is not only key to its distribution but also its development, culture, and very nature.

GIFT OF $90-MILLION TO COMPANY THAT PROMISES STOCKHOLDERS $165-MILLION JOB CUT IN 2009

Submitted by Roldo on Wed, 03/11/2009 - 16:04.

 You can imagine why this country – and especially this county – IS (and should be) going down the drain. I return to Cleveland to find our wonderfully generous politicians are giving Eaton Corp. more than $90 million in gifts. Or should I say you and I are giving Eaton, which had sales of $15.4 billion and earnings over $1.1 billion last year, the gift.
