Current Events / Re: Yet Another Reason to Love Fox News...
« Last post by wpcc88 on Today at 12:26:03 AM »
When you blatantly and repeatedly ignore reporting news that would make right-wingers look bad, you stop being journalism and start being political propaganda. Once they stop doing it the US, too, I'll be satisfied...

Sky stops broadcasting rightwing US channel Fox News in UK

If they get rid of Fox in the US, MSNBC has to go as well under your reasoning.  You can't deny that either, they both are laughing stocks for their opposition and CNN has no clue what direction they want to go.  Journalism as a whole is an absolute mess and I blame the very thing we are using to have this discussion.

I'd rather make the area as visually appealing as possible. Instead of a winding suspension bridge that spans over the rails and roadway, why not bridge over it with as much land cover as possible... wouldn't it make sense to enhance the environment, covering over mass transportation eye-sores? One thing I like about the Nexus plan; which I know it's part of a design competition, is that it covers and hides the peripheral vision of both the highway and the rails; all while updating the station which desperately needs aesthetic attention. I know the station is basically federal because it's Amtrak, but isn't it also connected via blue/green rta lines? So do we even need federal approval to rebuild the station?

Currently I'm all in favor of bridging land over roadways and railways. Is there any way we could build over these transits to where they become like another tower city?

Also I love tunnels. I recently went over to Paris, France and they have a sub-city highway that runs through the financial district of the city. It even encompasses a metro line. It's the A14 which turns into N13 and it goes straight to the Arc De Triomphe. Paris did something right hiding their motorways. Good for expansion when cities run out of room. This being said, can we just completely bridge over i-90 turning it into another green ribbon? I'd also be in favor or ridding i-90 of the super frequent exits through the campus district. Its something we don't need right before smashing into Dead-Mans curve. I think this would help lakefront access. A good lakefront is one thing, accessibility and walkability are another thing.

*sorry if I spewed off topic*

Lol if a vandercar strip mall went there i would go to the ribbon county and lol the whole time.

I'm afraid that this site is going to be given away to a Cranley donor.  So don't get your hopes up.  We'll see something like the crappy apartments at Oakley Station if we're lucky.  If we're unlucky, it will be a Vandercaar strip mall.  They'll get a free parking garage regardless.

General Transportation / Re: Hyperloop
« Last post by jmecklenborg on Yesterday at 11:24:23 PM »
Dude working on the feasibility study for Columbus sez: "The half-hour-to-Chicago scenario is more PR than anything, in my opinion."  Says the hyperloop might be more practical operating between speeds of 300-400mph because of the excessive TURNING RADIUS ISSUE that I brought up many posts ago.  The also claim that they want to have 3 operating systems by 2021.  They're going to be lucky to have 3 test runs of anything remotely practical by 2021.

I never understood the appeal of Kid Rock personally.  I liked Eminem and thought ICP is terrible.

He peaked with "Bawittaba" as far as I was concerned, he was good but not great after that.

Eminem was freaking brilliant.   Someone talked about Zack Reed bringing up his dooeys being a tactical error here, clearly they never saw the end of Eight Mile.

Completed Projects / Re: Cleveland: Public Square Redesign
« Last post by davit on Yesterday at 11:22:06 PM »
His initial intent may have been a unified Square but it is obvious the 50 million dollar design was a northern and southern section with Superior Avenue opened to public transit. He can state that but was never an option without serious monetary consequences to RTA.  His decision not to open the park immediately to public transportation instead opened Pandora's box to ,imho, design elements to justify his threats of terrorism.

I will be interested to hear what the corrective/permanent design elements Field Operation proposes and how much additional costs those elements will entail.

I like the Mitt that strapped his dog to the roof of the car on his family vacation and has "binders full of women".  That Mitt seems a bit clueless and even insensitive, but in a genial Clark Griswold sort of way.  But the Mitt that thinks that slightly less than half of Americans are too stupid or lazy to take care of themselves?

Yeah but Bill Clinton loved the idea of binders full of women and Obama probably shouldn't have brought up canines.

I ran across this video randomly.  It profiles an incredible array of situations and personalities.  The one guy was a random expat in South Africa who got a call informing him that he is not only a Duke but the head of Europe's last private army.
