  2. The 2019 population estimates are now available at census.gov. As expected, half of Tennessee's population growth has been in the Nashville MSA. Here are the numbers. Tennessee's one-year population growth was 57,543. metro area...2019 population...1-year growth Chattanooga...565,194...4,362 Clarksville...307,820...3,519 Cleveland...124,942...974 Jackson...178,644...329 Johnson City...203,649...749 Kingsport-Bristol...307,202...466 Knoxville...869,046...7,812 Memphis...1,346,045...3,548 Morristown...142,749...971 Nashville

  5. Rail trail 2.0 is almost open from Tremont to Publix. The only obstacle left is the chain link between Atherton and Publix (3rd photo). Its very weird that the trail gets choked down to a 4ft sidewalk when it gets to Tremont (2nd photo). Hopefully that is on the city's to do list, it will be a major a choke point. Not pictured is the former trolley stop, its currently filled with construction accessories and kinda fenced off. Whose dogs are those?

  15. There is no reason to name the person or the unit number publicly. As this is a very tense time, there is a risk of inciting negative behavior or even violence toward the person who is infected. This person did the responsible thing and notified the buildings management so that they could prepare and take steps to mitigate spread within the building. So long as the person self isolates until cleared, there should be minimal risk to those in the building(I believe the HVAC systems are separate for each unit). Take extra precautions when in public areas of the building(and e

  21. So, many of the cogent(ish) arguments against universal health care were that America (tm) wanted to avoid a situation where we were forced to ration health care resources. Sticking with a market-based approach to heathcare was explicitly said to be the best way to ensure that those who could afford to buy in to our system were sure to have access to everything they would ever need. Yet, somehow, here we are anyway.... https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/03/25/coronavirus-patients-do-not-resucitate/

  24. From Twitter: UNCC in the final 4 back in 1977! 43 years ago today (March 26, 1977), the 49ers played Marquette in the Final Four in Atlanta. Cedric “Cornbread” Maxwell scored 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, and Lew Massey scored 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds in that game.

  25. So they are starting on floor 4. That's one floor per year, since we first got word of this one. I think my impatience is due to the fact I can't wait to see it. I feel this one is going to tie the skyline together and make it more cohesive from several different angles. JW and Westin seem really far away from core when coming in from southeast but this will make it much better.

  26. Census provided updated population estimates for Metropolitan Statistical Areas yesterday. The Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia Metropolitan Statistical Area numbered 2,636,883 denizens as of July 1, 2019, the new population figures show. Its annual numeric increase of 43,933 from July 1, 2018, which equates to an average of about 120 new people each day, was seventh-highest of the nation’s 384 metro areas. Percentage-wise, the metro’s population growth ranked 38th. https://www.bizjournals.com/charlotte/news/2020/03/26/charlotte-metros-population-keeps-climbing-new.html

  32. Legend has it if you put baking powder on your bumper and put your car in neutral on the 3rd level, you will start rolling uphill. Once you get out and look at the bumper you will see the handprints of all the architects past that worked on the projects that died in Levineland.

  33. No reason to shut any of these construction sites down. Low density workers (what, a dozen dudes here on a large site?) I've heard that Boston has ordered construction sites to shut down. But Nashville, Raleigh, etc are showing few signs of Chinese Virus problems. No reason to make the 'cure' worse than the original problem. Few see a construction site like this as a spread vector any worse than allowing a fast food joint to allow a dozen employees to work there (for pickup/drive through only).

  35. I can't see feds/ Trump being the arbitrar in distribution of vents and other gear and tests. Most governors are fed up. I wonder if all the states could get together and form an allocation board staffed with epidemiology experts. When will they realize the WH simply cannot manage a crisis?

  36. Kudos to all of these workers. They could be sitting at home chilling and waiting on the fat government stimulus but instead choose to work in the face of a dubious environment.

  37. All construction is full steam ahead in Charlotte as well as I read in Durham despite stay at home orders from the respective counties. as stated above most workers on not on top of each other anyway and wear protective clothing like gloves most of the time. This project is important to Raleigh and to Pendo who you just read is continuing to hire right now and they will need the space when this building is done.
