Why Jesus Garcia?

Since Fioretti has consistently backed CTU and has a long record of being pro education and garcia did nothing for education, why did Karen Lewis back Garcia? What's the real back story?

    Please Lifetime Bridgeporter: spare me the American dream speech,when Daley from the 11th Ward, Madigan in 13th Ward and Burke in the 14th ward have enriched themselves and loyal White Irish people in Chicago, at the direct expense African Americans, who's own corrupt carpet baggers political leadership gorged themselves for decades, at the insidious table of democratic patronage politics, that is still controlled today by the White Irish mafia with a little help from plutocratic Jews..

    Take a look at the board of directors of Navy Pier Inc, if you want to see where all the gangster white Irish boys are gainfully employed and being paid by your tax dollars.

    LB,

    Race is not the deciding factor in people voting. They must think the person is qualified before they will take race into account. If not you would have had many AA candidates getting more votes against Daley.

    Once they see a person is qualified then it can be a factor. The candidate would have probably been more active in that community and maybe even elected from that community. Its someone they will identify with. They are more likely to believe that person will keep their promise. In some cases its seen as a tie breaker between equally qualified candidates.

    Its not just minorities that vote on race. Caucasian have used race/ethnicity to decide who to vote for and against.

    Remember. Minority American are the only ones that notice when we are not represented in high profile positions. If we think our candidates are equally qualified but keep getting left out its hard to feel like we are truly being treated as Americans. At times we are asking American to look past our race and elect us to position we normally don't hold.

Attempted stabbing- 900 block of S. Racine

Early Saturday morning 3-4 a.m, I was waiting for someone to let me into an apartment (forgot my keys, oops) when a hooded man wearing all black approached asking if I was alright (rightfully so, as I was alone in the wee hours of the morning) Then he pulled out a boxcutter and began trying to stab at the back of my head. As soon as I screamed, he ran away. As soon as I was able to get indoors,...

Early Saturday morning 3-4 a.m, I was waiting for someone to let me into an apartment (forgot my keys, oops) when a hooded man wearing all black approached asking if I was alright (rightfully so, as I was alone in the wee hours of the morning) Then he pulled out a boxcutter and began trying to stab at the back of my head. As soon as I screamed, he ran away. As soon as I was able to get indoors, I called 911 and they sent out a car to patrol the area but had no luck finding him. Be on the lookout for a man wearing a black fur-lined coat with a scarf wrapped around his head and sunglasses. Not sure if he will try this stunt again, but thought I'd get word out.

Looking for a female workout buddy!

Hi fellow south loopers! I just moved back to the South Loop (my favorite part of the city) and need to get moving especially with this cold weather. My default in the winter is to stay in and order takeout.

Looking for another female or a group of females that would like to workout together and motivate one another! I have a gym membership to xsport fitness on 8th and state. I am also open to trying other workout studios in the south loop. Two that I am really interested in trying are UFC Boxing and 105F bikram.

If there are any ladies out there interested in a workout buddy give me a shout :)

- Aria

  • Hi Aria,

    Yes, I will join you. I plan to buy the groupon later this week. :)

    Jenny

  • Hey Aria,

    If you're interested in doing weights and don't mind a guy, I'm also a member at XSport. I just moved and my old roommate (my previous gym buddy) moved up to Old Town so I'm also looking for someone to go with.

USA-Kina flytta om klimatförändringar som är kritiska till Asien

En uppsättning rapporter av den mellanstatliga panelen för klimatförändringar (IPCC), sist som släpptes den 2 November, 2014, sätter scenen för regeringar att förnya sina ansträngningar på frågan genom ambitiösa åtaganden för ett heltäckande klimatavtal i Paris i December 2015.

Syntesen släppt den här veckan och tidigare tre volymer av rapporterna har tydligt etablerat bevis om klimatförändringar den sannolikt irreversibla skadan på kritiska ekosystem och sårbarhet för mänskliga och ekonomiska system. Det finns ett smalt fönster av möjligheter att minska utsläppen så att vi kan garantera temperaturstegringen stannar inom målet 2 grader Celsius (C) i slutet av detta århundrade.

I Asien och Stillahavsområdet finns det ett särskilt behov att ta itu med denna fråga. Senaste utvecklingen vinster att vändas på grund av klimatpåverkan är väl förstådda. Den andra volymen av IPCC-rapporten, effekter, anpassning och sårbarhet, släppt i mars 2014, tydligt beskrivas skadorna på de fysiska och ekonomiska systemen i vår region.

Regionen är en stora geografiska utbredning som också hem till den största populationen av världens fattiga, vilket gör det särskilt känsliga för effekterna av klimatförändringarna. Dessa effekter omfattar vattenstress, livsmedelsförsörjning, kustnära översvämningar och erosion, förde med sig risken för utrotning av terrestrial och sötvatten arter och ökad prevalens av vektorburna sjukdomar.

Anpassning till dessa är sättet att gå framåt. Men det finns gränser, som tydligt har erkänts av IPCC. Detta gör rollen som riskreducerande eller minska utsläppen av växthusgaser (GHG) central till något svar till klimatförändringarna. Så nu är IPCC tydligt erkänna komplementariteten mellan anpassning och begränsning i samband med globala hållbara utvecklingen.

Morgans Bar and Grill

Hey!

I may have missed it, but does anyone know what happened to Morgans?

Thanks!

  • 25th Little Italy

    Morgan's closed because they couldn't compete with the new bars that opened in the area. UIC did hold their lease, but the decision had nothing to do with UIC.

  • Interesting...good to know! Hopefully, a great new place will open there soon!
