Food memories

Submitted by lmcshane on Sun, 01/27/2008 - 16:23.

As I get older, my passion for food and wine is catching up with me.  I no longer hear adjectives like lithe or lanky used to describe me, but so what?!

reading, writing and arithmetic in public office

Submitted by Susan Miller on Sat, 01/26/2008 - 11:38.

I am reading the PD this morning and came across this article which points up two basic issues regarding our elected officials here in Cleveland. We all seem to know that the Cleveland schools have had a tough time educating students -- it's  a complex problem to solve, but modeling the behavior can go a long way toward giving students something to which they can aspire. Remember the "3 Rs"?

SAFETY NET - LUMINOUS VEIL OF AL BIRNEY

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 01/25/2008 - 13:44.

After posting this morning, I had more thoughts about the nobility of the suicide-prevention fence.   I knew I should go back and visit it more closely because when I saw the bridge before I was with someone who was driving so I couldn’t stop. 

 

SAFETY NET - FOR J. MURRAY

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Fri, 01/25/2008 - 10:43.

   

 A recent response by J. Murray, an energetic contributor to Brewed Fresh Daily - struck me as fatalistic, inhumane, insensitive, and blindly lacking in informed self-interest.   Reading J large, helping our neighbor is to interfere with the inevitable, efficient, scientific cycle of capitalism.   I don’t believe that J’s “Man” is slave to any economic model - provided he  thinks and acts.

BUFFALO, NY SAVES STRUCTURAL SKELETON OF BUILDING SIMILAR TO BREUER'S CLEVELAND AMERITRUST TOWER

Submitted by Jeff Buster on Mon, 01/21/2008 - 20:26.

The 15 story Dulski Federal Building in Buffalo, New York is undergoing a down to the steel skeleton re-hab.   This building was constructed in the early 1970’s, and besides the time of its construction, shares other similarities with the Breuer designed Ameritrust Tower built in 1971 in Cleveland, Ohio. 

Green Fuel Technology: Potential for a 100 MPG Standard Hits the Media !

Submitted by Sudhir Kade on Mon, 01/21/2008 - 11:37.

 

Technology is such an important wildcard in the social consciousness picture, whether we speak of the most innovative approaches to community development using WI-FI and FOSS in tandem or we celebrate some of the latest advances in product development.  While bumbling bureaucratic banter restricts radical progress at the nexus of environment and technology (current Ohio legislation insiduously inculcates clean coal and nuclear power measures as green and renewable technologies and considers a 35 MPG mandated standard by 2020 significant) some very innovative R&D experts have launched their media campaign to expedite progress by demonstrating how very close we are to a 100 MPG standard.  I was heartened by a full page ad which recently manifested via a variety of media outlets - I happened to catch the one in this week's issue of US News and World Report.

AMP-OH Contract & CPP's Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard

Submitted by Stefanie Spear on Sun, 01/20/2008 - 23:29.

On Wednesday, January 16, I testified at the Cleveland City Council Public Utilities Committee's PURPA Hearing. More than 16 people testified asking Cleveland City Council Public Utilities Committee to cancel, or at the very least, delay their vote on whether or not to allow Cleveland Public Power (CPP) to sign a 50 year contract to buy power from the American Municipal Power of Ohio's (AMP-OH) proposed 1,000-megawatt conventional pulverized coal powered plant to be located in Letart Falls in Meigs County Ohio. The deadline for Council to decide is March 1, 2008. The next time for the public to comment in front of Council is set for Friday, February 22. The Jan. 16 meeting started at 1:30 p.m. and ended at 6:30 p.m. A much longer meeting then anyone expected. The entire meeting was extremely interesting and I learned a lot. It is important to note that though the AMP-OH issue was at the forefront of everyones mind, the just as important issue concerning CPP's Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard was discussed at length.
