    Some photos I took after yet another Liverpool win this morning. First is looking at the future Nashville Yards from 8th & Commerce. Certainly an interesting view without the buildings of the Lifeway Campus there. Next is 8th & Broad with the new and old. (A favorite subject of mine. Next is the Bento Box project on 4th Ave S. I took a side trip over to Kline Ave., and it's amazing that as close to downtown as it is, it seems as though it's miles away. Driving down Nolensville Rd, the new stadium is going to do wonders for the stretch around the fairgrounds, and it's interesting to think of what Nolensville Rd, particularly between the fairgrounds and Harding Pl. will look like in 10 years. I wonder if something would be done along that route to tie the stadium and the Zoo together and activate the whole corridor. Certainly mass transit could be a game changer for the corridor, but without it, changes will be slower. Past Harding, it's a mix of established businesses, and Hispanic businesses that I feel are essential to Nashville. Interested to hear everyone's thought's on the future of Nolensville Rd.

    The NY Times has a fun, interactive map to show just how connected we are to each other in this age of social media. The surprising conclusion: "Even in the age of the internet, distance matters immensely in determining whom--and, as a result, what--we know." Data analyzed by economists at Facebook, Harvard, Princeton, and NYU is used to determine just whom we associate with on Facebook. Here's a link to the article: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/09/19/upshot/facebook-county-friendships.html I'm going to post snapshots of the national map; the darker the county's color, the more it's connected to the highlighted county. Here's Davidson County. Not surprisingly, people in Davidson County are Facebook friends with people all over the country. Now compare that with Shelby County (Memphis) where it's much more regional: Here's Mecklenburg County NC (Charlotte) which is heavily aligned with the East Coast and especially the Carolinas: Knox County has lots of friends from all over Tennessee, and especially from East Tennessee and Williamson County, but also from counties throughout the region that are dominated by universities (TTU, Ole Miss, Alabama, Auburn, MS State): And Hamilton County also has a fairly broad range of "likes" especially from within 100 miles: Anyway, it's fun to play with! I've been wasting time all morning at work playing with this map. Not surprisingly, counties with large military installations like Montgomery also have widespread ties.

    IDK if it jas been mentioned here before but today I took a career trip to the Carolinas aviation museum and their president spoke to us. He mentioned that they have plans to move soon to a purpose built building along Wilkinson Blvd as part of a "Front Door" project that the airport is doing that includes hotels amd breweries. They are starting a $30 million capital campaign soon to help fund the move and building within the next 3 years

    Here are more pictures from yesterday’s game. The seats with the best views of the skyline in the stadium are in the southwest corner of the upper deck without question. It will be fun to watch this tower grow into a finished product throughout the season.
