For folks who missed the webinar by Dr. Kevin Ramsey from the U.S. EPA’s Office of Sustainable Communities and Dr. Garrit Knapp from National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education at the University of Maryland, here’s the video (click link above).

My only problem is that I wish this graph came with a link to the source of this information. I know this is true, but just to back up facts for people who may not know this information, a source would be awesome.
The aromas were floral with a touch of orange and a metallic note that I sometimes find in honey. On the palate, it was breezy, fresh, tangy and lightly bitter, not bone dry but not at all sweet. I could sense the honey in the round, rich texture of the beer: thickness without weight, like a chenin blanc wine. The soft carbonation enhanced the texture. It didn’t have the insistent rush of bubbles that you would find in a mass-produced beer, or the snappy twang of a pilsner, but rather the soft fizz of a British hand-cranked cask ale.
For me, the biggest surprise was how powerfully the honey influenced the beer in almost every aspect — texture, aroma, flavor — except sweetness. It was a reminder of how extraordinary honey can be both as an ingredient and as a reflection of its particular origins.
According to Corporate Knights, a media and financial company advocating green practices, President Teddy Roosevelt is the greenest president of them all.
Perhaps most strikingly, of the 44 presidents who have held office over the last 223 years, only eight received votes. The others, ranked in order, were Barack Obama, Thomas Jefferson, Gerald R. Ford, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Bill Clinton.
I think the more interesting fact from the Credit Suisse report is the fact that “Europe was responsible for 10.9 trillion US dollars of the total global loss of 12.3 trillion US dollars”… that’s 89% of all the wealth lost in 2011!
Most states have a history of voting for a particular party and the presidential candidates will count on their votes again. This leaves a handful of states where the election will be decided. These are the election battlegrounds.
Alexandria’s success in attracting Roche reflects a shift in thinking in the pharmaceutical industry, which for years put its research workers in the same complexes as its manufacturing plants. Now, drug companies are putting drug development scientists in so-called research clusters, typically around universities, with the theory that more interaction between scientists will spur better research.
Roche announced in June that it would close its manufacturing and research facility in Nutley, N.J., and relocate a research unit in the area. The company considered keeping those 200 or so jobs at a new location in New Jersey, but ultimately chose Manhattan site, largely because of its location in a cluster of other research companies, said Darien Wilson, a spokeswoman for Roche.
The site, she said, would “allow us to be in the midst of that scientific talent.”
Charles M. Blow, in response to Mitt Romney’s belief that the fact that he and Ann gave away their inheritance money is evidence that they built themselves up from nothing, and their successes can be attributed to hard work alone.
Man oh man, talk about entitlement, lack of self-awareness, lack of thankfulness.
I’m no longer confident in the basic goodness of his constitution.
One doesn’t have to operate with great malice to do great harm. The absence of empathy and understanding are sufficient. In fact, a man convinced of his virtue even in the midst of his vice is the worst kind of man.
So true. Romney had some respectable creds in his pocket (exs: Romneycare and the sustainability efforts in Massachusetts), and that gave me hope that while he, undoubtedly malleable, weak in principle, and ambitious to a disgusting fault, had at least some capacity to do some good, and compassion enough to extend health care and promote environmental equity. I believed that he was just trying to fake it til he made it in the super right. Now, it appears as if he’s made it, or it was never an act…
And if you’re wondering about demographic changes over the past decade:
The Black population declined by 10,000 in Crown Heights North (a loss of almost 12% of the Black population), 8,400 people in Flatbush (decline of 14%), 7,258 people in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens (decline of 12%), and almost 6,000 people (-5,936) in Bedford (decline of almost 15%).
