  1. I think that is more accurately read "reimbursement specialists, people with some nursing or clinical experience and people with pharmacy experience". Not terrible jobs at all, but I wouldn't expect MDs to be trying to hit performance numbers for calls per hour.
  2. Could you elaborate? This is one block off of the CBD. I don't see how this achieves any goals involving urban density, commercial tax base or live/work/play. This would be short sighted and terrible for downtown Cary or downtown Apex, much less downtown Raleigh.
  3. Doubtful. Aside from the fact that even at its most efficient usage, roads still have a finite capacity, you'll still have to spend money to keep the roads from turning into gravel. Roads cost $10M/lane/mile to maintain without traffic. Even if you were to put vehicles on it that can maximize the number of humans per unit, you are essentially building a gold-plated mass transit system out of asphalt. Although a network of 40 lane roads would look like something out of a 1950s futurist magazine(I'm assuming the city and county will continue to grow), it would probably be cheaper for the coun
  4. I don't see that as more than just a change in the by whomever buys Goto (and Sharefile, for that matter). The facility plus existing staff is going to be a huge plus for the company that picks up those product suites. As far as the Raleigh Tech scene, I think it's still going strong. The startup scene may be having issues, but in a city with limited local VC, and with the state of the national VC scene (sorry, finance majors, an LLP with a niche mobile app and no clue how to monetize it is not worth $500m) isn't a great indicator of the health of technology nor innovation in the area. Our
  5. That doesn't sound too bad. They are just dropping to 8600 workers worldwide. I wouldn't worry as much about new Citrix locations as I would about locations that are already shedding jobs.
  6. The Downtown Raleigh Draft Plan alludes to reverting "Cobblestone Hall" back into the original market as part of the rebranding of the area as Market Square. From what I've read in interviews, it appears that the owner, Hazan, is on board with future renovations. So instead of recreating City Market in the Warehouse district, it is probably better to push for the city's vision of Market Square with the restoration of the original market.
  7. The city is already looking to revamp City Market. I don't think we need City Market II.
  8. They light the spire for home games and then do a strobe effect for each goal they score for 10ish seconds and then for two minutes if they win. The are the worst team in the league this season, so don't expect to see the post-game light up too often. http://www.wralsportsfan.com/pnc-turns-tower-red-to-salute-canes-during-season/14066325/
  9. I think fact that it is a townhouse with 28 stories gives it away that it is a joke.
  10. Construction sites have food services trucks that are contracted to bring reasonably priced food to the site in those little pickup trucks with metal camper/coolers in the bed. I can't imagine a construction worker paying for a $9 for a 'gourmet' food truck sandwich when they can get a $3 sandwich from the services truck or go to one of the many reasonably priced lunch spots in the neighborhood.
  11. Unless they can get employee health insurance cost savings by throwing a treadmill and some free weights in a room for a discount from their insurance provider. Maybe less so if it is just an incentive to prospective higher skilled city employees in professional positions as a perk on top of the typically lower pay of gov't employees.
  12. Thanks, RHW. It's good to know the reasoning behind that decision.
  13. I wandered up to RWO after the rain stopped and much to my surprise that stupid craft store kiosk was closed. During RWO. What the hell?!? If they can't justify staying open for RWO, what makes them think they are going to last more than a few months? I am looking forward to the next tenant of that space, though.
  14. Are they going to install a plaque with the names of the middle school students that designed those "pieces"?
