    Soccer in Nashville

    Your statement regarding catastrophic injury in soccer is apparently very false. I'm not trying to weigh in on the pros and cons of a pro soccer team in Nashville, just sharing some information. "The Cost of the Header" In August [This article was published in 2014], a group of parents and players launched a class-action lawsuit in California accusing fifa, the sport’s world governing body, along with U.S. Soccer, the American Youth Soccer Organization, and others, of presiding over an “epidemic” of concussions in the game. The lawsuit claims that roughly fifty thousand high-school soccer players sustained concussions in 2010—more players than in basketball, baseball, softball, and wrestling combined—and demands that limits be placed on the number of times that players under seventeen may head the ball. https://www.newyorker.com/news/sporting-scene/cost-header "What Happens When Soccer Bans Heading?" If the rules of the game were being written today, making head-to-ball contact would be outlawed — but they were written 150 years ago. Backed by research and growing concussion awareness, U.S. Soccer is trying to reframe how we think about such an ingrained and dangerous part of the sport. https://www.theringer.com/2017/4/25/16041684/us-soccer-header-ban-concussions-4805684f63ca

  3. Sort of looks like a Fallout 4 shanty town on top of the building at the corner of 5th and Broadway...watch out for Super Mutants!

  6. I came across this article this morning in NYMagazine. My dad used to work for Bill Dorris at Aquabath. Heh. I think I met him once. http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/09/americas-ugliest-confederate-statue-isnt-coming-down-soon.html

    Wooooooo! Time to bring in the interstate and f%*& that s%$ up! Urban renewal/"progress"! https://www.citylab.com/transportation/2014/01/what-interstate-highway-system-should-have-looked/8097/ https://seattletransitblog.com/2012/03/10/eisenhower-didnt-want-highways-through-cities/ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/f-kaid-benfield/do-freeways-belong-inside_b_7260586.html “In Tennessee, plans for the construction of Interstate 40 were in fact redrawn to route the highway through the flourishing Jefferson Street corridor, home to roughly 80 percent of Nashville’s African-American-owned businesses. Not only did the construction of I-40 destroy this commercial district; it also demolished 650 homes and 27 apartment buildings while erecting physical barriers separating the city’s largest African-American universities: Fisk University, Tennessee A & I University, and Meharry Medical College.” https://www.vox.com/2015/5/14/8605917/highways-interstate-cities-history
  11. And then run for president! Sorry, that was just a softball that I couldn't resist.

    Funny your picture didn't include the major selling point and the project's namesake--the power station across the street.

    I kind of agree, but I do think wider sidewalks would be a good thing.

    So...you don't like Stix?
  15. Our continued reliance on cars as the only viable method of transportation is the disaster. Examples exist from around the world where car traffic has been reduced and businesses have thrived. If only there were a way to illustrate this...like, some sort of picture that shows before where there were a lot of lanes for cars and then--stay with me here--an after picture that shows the area when it became more multimodal. And then there could be some da...da...data? To further back up the case.
