Mary Lamb very true! I like cooler temps myself, but a male friend used to complain about the thermostat wars he used to have sharing an office with three women.

Deborah F. Buntin you cannot know that. You only know that you performed well. But perhaps you would have performed even better in a warmer environment.

But there is a reason for ORs to be kept cold. And you would have to experiment by doing the same tasks at a warmer temperature to see if the cold has any affect on you. This study is interesting to me because I’m sure my daughter will score well on her SATs because her verbal skills are off the charts. But if my son and daughter take the test in the same room it would probably be a better environment for him than for her.  1

People tear down perfectly functional buildings all the time. People knock down a small house to build a bigger one. People remodel their working bathroom just for the hell of it. Demolishing a $660,000 playground to provide more housing and 170 million dollars in revenue is a no brainer actually. How much the park cost really doesn't change that if there is more value to the area as a housing structure. Certainly we need parks. But they are going to incorporate a new playground area in another location that isn't buildable. Balancing green spaces with development is difficult. This article isn't about that. This article is about how much the swing set cost to install, which is what economists call "sunk cost." What matters is what is the best choice going forward, not how much something cost in the past.  17

Justin Singleton People usually don’t tear down new buildings right after they’ve been completed. If anything, this just shows how incompetent the government really is. No matter how you spin it, they wasted $660,000 for no reason  21

Literally, yes you are correct. And, I'm familiar with the concept of "sunk cost"(prior expenditures cannot dictate future strategy). But, government should have foreseen the opportunity prior to the playground expenditure.  13

Jonathan Colatorti this doesn't show incompetence at all. The plan to build more mixed-use housing is a new one. Some of those new buildings are going to be on ground that has been recently updated or maintained. There was nothing wrong with upgrading the park. But now the government has found a better use for it.  1 
5 hours ago
Jonathan Colatorti sure they do. If a company wants to build a factory, they will tear down a brand new home to do it. It's not the cheapest way to do it. But if that is the most profitable spot for the factory, the age of the house isn't going to matter to them at all.  1

By saying, “history as wealthy shipping center,” they mean a main African slave trading center of Europe. I learned that on a walking I took in the city, which I also highly recommend.

It should indeed, but the fact is hidden in plain sight. "Colonial commodities" says a explicative text for tourists on a historical building.

I live in Madrid and I disagree with this article. She has spent her budget on redoing the center of Madrid. Changes that weren’t necessary. Restricting traffic to the center unless you own a low emissions car- fine but she spends public funds on expensive surveillance camera and new traffic lights (cooler looking ones, not modern technology). She widened side walks of gran vía that wasn’t necessary. Putting in bike lanes everywhere is great but Madrid is not Amsterdam, it’s a driving city. We need solutions for the cars and “you can’t enter here” isn’t a solution. Traffic outside of Madrid center is worse now. She rolled out her plan without any thought, city employees didn’t even know how residents could register their cars w week before fines started. And if you live outside of the center- she doesn’t care about your broken street or junkies living in the park. So long as she has a pretty city center that’s green and gets her attention as an amazing mayor like this article. I can’t wait to vote her out. And EVERYONE brings their lunch in Tupperware here. In her position She probably does it for health reasons. I wonder how her debt relief work because all we see is more spending.  8

The facts are facts. You ‘see’ spending but the debt has gone down. And many many politicians eat out in restaurants. The air pollution problem in Madrid is terrible so Madrid can’t remain a driving city. There is more and more evidence of the health implications of breathing in that air. I lived in Madrid and I could feel the pollution on my hair and skin and even in my nose.  51

So it's safe to assume he will miss out on Memorial Day services here in the US, but tweet some hollow words about the day. POS.  122

Probably because he bullied and harassed a gold star Family during the election, dodged the draft in Vietnam with false medical reasons, degraded John McCains service and POW status, botched the condolence phone call to the family of LaDavid Johnson, and raised money for vets that he funneled into his own pocket... That pretty much makes whatever he tweets for Memorial Day as hallow and meaningless as the rest of his presidency.  30

For China, a warming Arctic offers 2 big prizes: new sources of energy and a faster shipping route across the top of the world. To that end, the country is cultivating deeper ties with Russia.

While it seems unethical to use global warming for economic gain, it would be absolutely hypocritical for the US to complain about China and Russia being opportunistic - because, let's face it, the US are not one iota better and would do the exact same thing if the roles were reversed and they had access to the North-East Passage (aka Northern Sea Route).  6

China is also moving closer to the Antarctica in ways never seen before. Trump picked his fight and China is not a bully and will not run because they will fight if they have to. This administration believes it can bully its way around but found now that its costly because our deficit is rising because of stupid bailouts. This administration doesn’t use macro economics and trump doesn’t understand business or macro economics.  1

Tami Turner Ellis while I sympathize with the plight of my fellow Americans (and am indeed aware of it) I’m not sure what you expect the New York Times to do. While the NYT isn’t lingering on the local problems of the Midwest, it is indeed reporting on the overall cause of the flooding (climate change, which affects all of us), and what can be done to assist (the disaster relief package, which is currently being held up by a single member of the GOP). The Midwest could help itself by not continually electing climate change deniers. For example, here’s what Sen. Roy Blunt (R) wrote in a 8/3/15 press release: “Electric service providers in Missouri have warned that the EPA’s so-called Clean Power Plan will raise energy costs for Missourians, reduce jobs, and hurt our state’s economic competitiveness. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I’ve fought hard to ensure provisions that would defund this harmful power grab were included in the final appropriations bill. I also support legislation to block this harmful rule and protect workers and families from the damaging effects of the Obama Administration’s executive overreach and costly energy regulations.”  1

Since tRump’s inauguration the rate has dropped 1.1% , due in part to the simple momentum of Obama’s economy, but tRump can’t stop slapping himself on the back and clapping for himself. He is nothing but a National Embarrassment that can’t even pronounce a word as simple as “origin”.  8
