Phoenix Is Pulling Off An Urban Miracle: Transforming Into A Walkable City
Phoenix Is Pulling Off An Urban Miracle: Transforming Into A Walkable City
The city that had long been the poster child of sprawl is putting its gears in reverse. With a new light rail line and a plan to make the city's core denser and more desirable, it's on the path to success.
For decades, Phoenix was the poster child for sprawl: Before the housing crash, developers were building 60,000 new homes a year in the desert at the edges of the city. But when the market fell apart and some of those new neighborhoods turned into instant ghost towns, the city learned its lesson and committed to moving in the other direction--walkable neighborhoods connected by public transit.
The transformation started with a new light rail line that connects far-flung communities, and now the areas around each stop will be developed into denser, urban places where people actually want to spend time outside.
"By building a new mode of transportation, the city stated its desire to live differently,” says Galina Tachieva, a sustainable planning partner at*Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, a consultancy that is helping the city figure out how to reverse sprawl.
After working through a series of community workshops, the design team mocked up a series of before-and-after shots showing how city streets will change--with narrower roads, bike lanes, sidewalk cafes, and new parks replacing vast swaths of concrete.
The new neighborhoods will be built over the next couple of decades, backed by a new walkable zoning code that will fight any chance of future sprawl. "Maybe some of these solutions look radical and quite ambitious, but they’re possible because the most expensive element is already in--the light rail," says Tachieva.
Are you ready for it?
Of course you’re not. Why would you be. You have no idea it’s happening, but it is.
The good news is that the tech boom is probably going to be really good for you, but the bad news is that virtually everything is about to get more competitive. Here are three things that are going to change in dramatic ways in the next 5 years:
When a person studies the NWO, it often does not include the "hidden agenda" within the over-arching agenda. Such as the Rapid Urbanization of America. Some may say this is NON-SENSE,however,the facts say otherwise.
If a person studies the History of the Western United States, you can clearly see a pattern of how the "West was Conquered" and that is to say that once pre-dominantly conservative areas and cities like YES, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Denver, are now progressive cities. Due to Rapid Urbanization, and strategic planning by the NWO.

New York and California Migration is Helping Liberals Take Over America
August 24, 2014 by Daniel Greenfield 17 Comments
America is suffering from two failed state colonization problems.
One is migration from failed states in the Third World. The second is migration from failed liberal cities and states like California and New York City to more traditional and less densely populated parts of the country.
The pattern is simple for both. Carry on the same destructive behavior that wrecked your country/city/state after you moved to get away from it.
The same people fleeing high taxes, high crime and poor services are exporting the same problem by voting for liberal politicians. That helped make it possible for Obama to win nationally and for Democrats to win statewide.
What you will never read anywhere in any "business journal" is that Arizona is unique and ever prosperous, because of it's location between Super Wealthy California and Super Wealthy Texas thus giving it a prosperous advantage over any other state within the United States.
As the River Runs Dry: The Southwest's water crisis
Arizona and the Southwest seek a balance of growth and water conservation as supply continues to decline
LAS VEGAS – The patroller stopped his water district truck and grabbed his camcorder.
"Here we go," he said, sliding from the cab and pointing his lens at the fine spray of water and rainbow rising from pop-up sprinklers on the lawn of a low-slung ranch home.
"Thursday," he spoke, recording the day as evidence. No watering allowed on Thursdays.
Welcome to the future, where every drop of Colorado River water is guarded and squeezed. Only here, in the city that gets 90 percent of its water from the fickle and fading river, the future is now.
The vast and highly urbanized Southwest, built on the promise of a bountiful river propped up by monumental dams, is up against its limits. Already tapped beyond its supply, the river is now threatened by a warming climate that shrinks its alpine source.
To support fast-growing urban populations in a time of dwindling supply, the Southwest is due for rapid and revolutionary changes.
Chandler 101 is a mixed-use development on approximately 24 acres with a total building area of 933,700 sf. and is strategically located in Chandler Arizona's flourishing Price Road Corridor. Designed by Davis, the development will include 3 mid-rise buildings up to 10 stories, two upscale dinner houses and retail shops.

With Sunny, Modern Homes, Joseph Eichler Built The Suburbs In Style
March 16, 2015 3:09 AM ET
In Palm Springs, Calif., a $1 million home was just built — with plans resurrected from 1951. The original sold for about $15,000, and was called an Eichler, after developer Joseph Eichler, who offered well-designed, well-built tract homes to the masses a half-century ago.
Bernie Grossman and his wife, Lyla, bought their Eichler home in 1963. Bernie was starting a law practice, and a client told him about these new modern houses going up in Granada Hills, about 45 minutes from downtown Los Angeles. "He said way up here in this wasteland there's some crazy builders building a house ... I looked at them and, I dunno, they're kind of weird," Grossman recalls.

---- Super Bowl drew record breaking crowds to Phoenix
Updated Feb 4, 2015 - 3:24 pm
BY COOPER RUMMELL, | February 3, 2015 @ 5:15 am
PHOENIX -- Downtown Phoenix had recorded breaking crowds due to the Super Bowl last weekend. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton said out-of-town fans put the city's employees to the test.
"This was the biggest event that we have ever held in Phoenix," Stanton said
Mayor Stanton said public safety employees were tested Saturday night when a section of Verizon Super Bowl Central reached max capacity.
"We were as prepared as could possibly be for crowds of this size and magnitude and we are ready to do it again," he said.
Here is a look at some of the city's record-breaking numbers from Super Bowl Weekend:
• Valley Metro's light rail doubled its previous record of most passengers in one day. 126,000 people rode the trains on Saturday which topped its previous high of 66,000. That was set December 7, 2013 when a Beyoncé Concert and ASU game caused a spike in travelers.
• The Phoenix Convention Center had 177,000 visitors over the weekend for the NFL Experience. The previous record was set in 2010 when 110,000 people visited the center for a Major League Baseball event.
• Sky Harbor estimated nearly 200,000 passengers were at the airport Monday due to a large number of Super Bowl fans leaving the Valley. The airport averages 100,000 passengers per day.
• There were more than one-million social media hits for "Phoenix" during Super Bowl week.
• Rental Car Companies in the Metro-Phoenix area had three times the average amount of rental car customers returning vehicles Monday.
The Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee is confident that the super-sized numbers translate into real difference locally, helping businesses and residents.
"We absolutely believe that the economic impact and the media impact of Super Bowl XLIX is... you almost can't put a price on it," said Jay Parry, President and CEO of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. "Because it really does position us well for the future and being positioned as that world-class destination."
Welcome to the neighborhood known as the NCAA tournament's Sweet 16. It's a block where the ACC has the most property with five schools remaining, but the*Kentucky Wildcats*are building the most enviable and impressive residence. No team wants to go home, but only four teams will stick around for another week. Here's a look at what it will take to keep playing or get sent packing:
MIDWEST REGIONKentucky Wildcats
Reasons the Wildcats advance: Doesn't seem like the Wildcats need any advice in this category, seeing as how they haven't lost yet this season. The same reasons they've remained unbeaten are the same reasons they can advance to the Final Four in Indianapolis. Kentucky is better than its opponents, top to bottom. The Wildcats have more future NBA players than any other team, and they include center*Karl-Anthony Towns, who could make a run at*Jahlil Okafor*to be the No. 1 draft pick. The Wildcats have more height, more length, more depth than any team they will face.

Ranking the 2015 Final Four teams
By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer
March 30, 2015 3:16 pm ET
For many reasons, this stands to be the most exciting build-up to a Final Four we've ever seen. No matter how any of these games play out, no matter the combination that leads to a national champion next Monday night, the outcomes will bring intrigue, big story lines and grand takeaways.
The NCAA Tournament is never a letdown, but when it has a go of it like this, and an ultimate weekend with so many stars -- both coaches and players -- it's a dream combination for media and fans alike. You can't wait for it, can you? Same here.
Let's give a quick power ranking of the foursome still standing.
Even though Kentucky is obviously the top team entering a fascinating Final Four, the margin between UK and Wisconsin and Duke isn't so big. For John Calipari's team, the difference is obviously the defense. At 85.6 points per 100 possessions allowed, the Wildcats are the best team on D in the country. And really one of the best ever. The nine-man deployment is relentless, and when you've got length in Willie Cauley-Stein, Karl-Anthony Towns, Dakari Johnson and Trey Lyles, it's a marvel to watch. Not to mention the Harrison twins are well-built guards. Offensively, Cal's team rates at fifth-best in the nation right now. It's not a whirl with the ball, but it's efficient thanks in large part to its clean-up duty on the offensive glass. Kentucky got a scare from Notre Dame. Was that an omen to come or the one close call to ignite Big Blue to two comfortable wins and a place in sports lore?
Wisconsin edges out Duke because they've looked better through four games than the Blue Devils, and now Sam Dekker is looking like a top-10 NBA pick. Dekker won the West region's MOP award after he went 5 for 6 from 3-point range and had 27 points in the Arizona game. So here's the crazy part: Frank Kaminsky put up 29 in that game. Bucky's been so good. No matter what UW does on Saturday, we'll remember this era of Badgers hoops. Big Frank, Dekker, Josh Gasser, and Nigel Hayes have lifted the program to such relevance and prominence. Now, this isn't a stellar defensive team, but it is the very best offensive group in the nation, putting up a 127.5 offensive rating on KenPom. That's crazy good. Defensively, the team is slightly better than last season (from 97.6 DRtg to 96.4), but still not elite. Traevon Jackson's contributions could wind up being X factor-ish if UW is to win it all.
Here's How 9/11 Truther Pete Carroll Would Have Prevented The Iraq War
Filed to: PETE CARROLL
Seattle Times staff columnist Jerry Brewer's latest column begins with a conversation he had with Seattle Seahawks head coach and noted 9/11 truther Pete Carroll over a year ago. Somehow, the conversation veered into Carroll laying out his plan for handling the war in Iraq.
Here's Carroll dropping knowledge:
"OK, let me give you an illustration," Carroll says. "Let's say, after all the stuff that we heard about what was going on in Iraq, we sent 10,000 people to Iraq as peacefully as we could go. And we walked wherever they would let us go, and we just talked to people and listened to what their issues were. And then we tried to figure out the best way we could support them and change things, as opposed to bombing (expletive) thousands of people with shock and awe. It might've taken us longer to influence change, but nobody would've died. And the power that we could've generated by just being willing to listen and see if there was a way we could answer their call and help them, whatever they wanted.
"Not tell them what to do. Not change them. Just help them go where they wanted to go. What if we had done that? How much money would that have cost us? Give me a thousand peace workers that would go over and do that. Just listen and talk. Think of what we could've done, as opposed to killing hundreds of thousands of people or whatever we did. And leave the wrath of what we did."
Carroll is trembling with intensity. His eye contact is so powerful that you can't look away from him.
The Conspiracy Theory Surrounding The Seahawks' Last Play
e Zirin on February 2, 2015 - 9:54AM ET
Conspiracy theories abound in US history, a way to explain the unexplainable in a nation with massive gaps in wealth and power. How could a lone gunman kill the President of the United States? Who put a drifter like James Earl Ray in position to kill Dr. Martin Luther King? Or the conspiracy theory of our century, one that has been entertained by the person at the heart of this article, Seattle Seahawks Pete Carroll, how did the Towers fall? (Please save the e-mails. I am not passing judgment on any of the above theories. Only pointing out that they all have found purchase.)
Sports, where antitrust exemptions, a compliant media and authoritarian structures don't exactly encourage open discussion, conspiracy theories have always been nourished. Well, one is certainly emerging after last night's shocking end to Super Bowl 49, as the Seahawks gave away a game that looked comfortably in their grasp. With the outcome in their hands in the closing seconds, on second down from the one yard line and trailing by four points against the New England Patriots, Seattle coach Pete Carroll chose to throw a three-foot slant over the middle instead of handing it to their power runner extraordinaire Marshawn Lynch. It was, of course, intercepted, the first time a pass from the one-yard line had been intercepted all season in any game.
In the stunning aftermath, after that unfathomable decision, conspiracy theories sprouted like Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors. I'm not talking about Twitter-theories from deep-thinking eggs, or any cris de coeur from devastated Seahawks fans. I'm talking about people inside Seattle's own locker room. I'm talking about texts I received from mainstream writers who don't want to deal with the backlash that would come with writing it up.
Marshawn Lynch airs Super Bowl last-play conspiracy theory
By Mark W. SanchezMarch 1, 2015 | 3:36pm
Marshawn Lynch’s coldness to the media apparently does not extend worldwide.
The reticent superstar finally opened up about the heartbreaking Seahawks defeat to the Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX, offering his undivided thoughts to Turkish media as part of a promotional tour.
“To be honest with you, I would be lying if I didn’t tell you that I was expecting the ball,” Lynch told NTV Spor, Turkey’s leading sports network, about Seattle’s infamous final play, a 1-yard pass attempt that was intercepted when a Beast Mode punch-in could have been the go-ahead score. “Yes, I was expecting the ball. But in life, these things happen. Like I told a reporter after the game, it’s a team sport.”
In halting speech, Lynch then suggests that while these things do happen, they may have happened to him for a specific reason.
“I had no problem with the decision of the playcalling,” Lynch said. “I mean, you know … I think it was more of a … how do I say this? When you look at me, and you let me run that ball in … I am the face of the nation. You know, MVP of the Super Bowl … that’s pretty much the face of the nation at that point of time. I don’t know what went into that call. I mean, maybe it was a good thing that I didn’t get the ball. I mean, you know, it cost us the Super Bowl. I mean, I have full … I have full confidence in my teammates to execute that plan because we’ve done it so many more times. But would I love to had the ball in? Yes, I would have.”
Lynch never outright states it (He’s couching so he won’t get fined?), but the implication is clear: If Lynch weren’t a media-shy fine machine, if he were a more friendly avatar for the NFL to call its own, perhaps coach Pete Carroll would have called his number. Instead of Malcolm Butler’s instantly iconic interception, maybe Lynch’s dreadlocked countenance would be the defining image from the biggest game of the U.S.’s sports world.

Pete Rose’s Statistics: 4,256 Hits and a Big Error
By TYLER KEPNERMARCH 23, 2015
CLEARWATER, Fla. — Mike Schmidt and Paul Molitor watched an exhibition game Monday from opposite dugouts here at the Philadelphia Phillies’ spring training camp. Historically, they belong to the same team, as Hall of Famers with plaques in Cooperstown, N.Y. But on an issue that divides so many in baseball, Schmidt and Molitor disagree.
Pete Rose, the career hits leader, has applied for reinstatement to Major League Baseball, which barred him for life in 1989 for gambling on games played by the Cincinnati Reds, the team he was managing. Rose’s request will be reviewed by the new commissioner, Rob Manfred, who succeeded Bud Selig in January.
Selig never ruled on the Rose case, effectively upholding the agreement Rose had signed under Commissioner Bart Giamatti, who died of a heart attack eight days later. Fay Vincent, who served between Giamatti and Selig, believes Manfred will not bring Rose back.
Randy Johnson was born on Tuesday, September 10, 1963, in Walnut Creek, California. Johnson was 25 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 15, 1988, with the Montreal Expos.

Manny Pacquaio will need most everything to go in his favor on May 2 if he hopes to become the first boxer to defeat Floyd Mayweather. That has not been the case during the course of the 36-year-old’s training, as he continues to suffer leg cramps.
The ailment is nothing new for Pacquiao. He’s dealt with pain in his calves throughout his career, and his trainers have done what they can to correct the issue.
"There's no magic cure for it," trainer Freddie Roach told Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports. "We're doing what we can do. I've got the doctors working on it. There are some Filipino guys here who are massaging it for him. The cream cost $1,800 for a single bottle. I wasn't too happy about that."
Roach says Pacquiao has eliminated running uphill as part of his training. The boxer used to run up a concrete hill while training in Los Angeles for other fights.
The anti-inflammatory cream used by Pacquiao might be pricey, but the boxer is still in pain. On Saturday, fans gathered a few miles away from Pacquiao’s home, hoping to witness his morning run. But the champ was forced to skip his training session.
"I would like him to get up and move around at least, get out the stiffness from the work we have been doing," Justin Fortune, Pacquiao’s strength and condition coach, told USA Today Sports. "He is not going to run, but we will make up for it with the work we do later.
"I make it hard for him but he needs to suck it up. Fighting Mayweather is not easy, either. There are always consequences."
Pacquiao’s calf issues have been going on for years, and they haven't kept him from being one of the best fighters in the world. After defeating Juan Manuel Marquez in 2008, Roach told his boxer that something needed to be done. Following the bout, Pacquiao hired fitness trainer Alex Ariza. Pacquiao didn’t have cramping issues in his next six fights, but the problem reportedly recurred as he began training to take on Shane Mosley in 2011.
Battling through the pain, Pacquiao’s calf issues haven’t cost him any fights. He’s suffered just two defeats in the past decade, losing a bout to Timothy Bradley that likely should’ve been scored in his favor, and getting caught with a surprise punch by Marquez that knocked him out in their fourth ever meeting.
But Pacquiao could have a tough time defeating Mayweather if he’s dealing with too much pain. He’s already the decided underdog, and only a handful of boxers have even prevented Mayweather from being the winner on all three judges’ scorecards.
Pacquiao, himself, has been very quiet about the cramps. He’s never been one to use them as an excuse, and wouldn’t likely do so in his match with Maywweather.
Despite the issues that Pacquiao has faced, some have been encouraged by his training. Running partner Rodel Mayol told USA Today that the Filipino looks better than ever.
"I see he doesn't get tired, not like before he fought (Chris) Algieri, (Shane) Mosley, Juan Manuel Marquez – then he took it easy," Mayol said. “This time he is very motivated."
Mayweather vs. Pacquiao is set for May 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. PacMan last fought on Nov. 22, knocking down Chris Algieri six times in a unanimous decision.
RARE MEDIA ARTICLES EXPOSE HOW THE MASS MEDIA MANIPULATE PUBLIC OPINION

"Media manipulation currently shapes everything you read, hear and watch online. Everything."
-- Forbes magazine article on mass media influence, 7/16/2012
The influence of the mass media on public perception is widely acknowledged, yet few know the incredible degree to which this occurs. Key excerpts from the rare, revealing mass media news articles below show how blatantly the media sometimes distort critical facts, omit vital stories, and work hand in hand with the military-industrial complex to keep their secrets safe and promote greedy and manipulative corporate agendas.
Once acclaimed as the watchdog of democracy and the political process, these riveting articles clearly show that the major media can no longer be trusted to side with the people over business and military interests. For ideas on how you can further educate yourself and what you can do to change all this, see the "What you can do" section below the article summaries. Together, we can make a difference.
In the weeks following the atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, U.S. authorities seized and suppressed film shot in the bombed cities by U.S. military crews and Japanese newsreel teams to prevent Americans from seeing the full extent of devastation wrought by the new weapons. It remained hidden until the early 1980s and has never been fully aired. "Although there are clearly huge differences with Iraq, there are also some similarities," said Mitchell, co-author of "Hiroshima in America" and editor of Editor & Publisher. "The chief similarity is that Americans are still being kept at a distance from images of death, whether of their own soldiers or Iraqi civilians." The Los Angeles Times released a survey of six months of media coverage of the Iraq war in six prominent U.S. newspapers and two news magazines -- a period during which 559 coalition forces, the vast majority American, were killed. It found they had run almost no photographs of Americans killed in action. "So much of the media is owned by big corporations and they would much rather focus on making money than setting themselves up for criticism from the White House and Congress," said Ralph Begleiter, a former CNN correspondent. In 1945, U.S. policymakers wanted to be able to continue to develop and test atomic and eventually nuclear weapons without an outcry of public opinion. "They succeeded but the subject is still a raw nerve."

Now that TV broadcasts have gone digital, what is a television collector to watch? Of course, you can hook up a DVD or VHS tape player to watch recorded material on channel 3 or 4. You can also use a converter to watch digital TV broadcasts on an analog set.
I prefer to watch television the "old fashioned way," with a rabbit ear antenna. I also like to use my vintage TVs anywhere in the house, free of wired connections.
My solution is a home TV station. It covers the whole house and can be received by as many old TVs as I feel like powering up.
Let's Have a TV Party!
This impromptu "TV party" shows my transmitter in action. The color set is my restored RCA CTC-11H. The black and white set at lower right is my DuMont RA-103. On top of the DuMont are two handheld TVs, the type which can only receive through an antenna: a Panasonic Travelvision and a Sony Watchman.

TV on the Radio? A dramatic proposal could extend the FM band into the newly vacated TV channels.
TV on the Radio?
A dramatic proposal could extend the FM band into the newly vacated TV channels.
Everyone is talking about how television stations are transitioning from analog to digital broadcasts, but what does this mean – or what could this mean – for radio?
There have been several ideas floating around about what to do with the soon-to-be vacated TV frequencies. Radio practitioners have their eyes set on frequencies that run just beneath the FM band, formerly occupied by television channels 2 through 6.
The idea of converting TV channel 6 for use by radio following the DTV transition has been around for a while. This would add 6 megahertz (mHz) of space to the FM dial, meaning that instead of 87.9 to 107.9, the FM band would extend from 81.9 to 107.9.
Another use for the frequencies has been proposed by a group called the Broadcast Maximization Committee (BMC), led largely by AM radio practitioners and engineers. AM radio, which exists on the spectrum way down in the 520 kHz–1,710 kHz ( .52 - 1.71 mHz) range, has always been plagued with problems due to atmospheric conditions and interference from electronic devices and metal structures. With new electronics appearing everywhere, the interference environment is continually getting worse. As such, many AM radio stations would like to move to the FM band

I’m definitely NOT saying that this is it, but the complete overhaul of the credit card system seems like it could be a test run for something much bigger in the near future.
