Those are among the recommendations in a report that Columbus-based research giant Battelle released Monday. Algae and warning signs reappeared at Grand Lake beaches in June.

Whodathunk it? If you remove subsidies, prices go up.

Environmental Economics

The Scioto (pronounced Sigh-OH-ta) River is best described as a murky stream of brownish muck--sometimes a torrent after a lot of rain, or snow melt, that meanders through central Ohio, eventually merging with the Olentangy (pronounced OH-lin-tan-jee) River in downtown Columbus.  John likes to point out the inefficiency of subsidizing flood insurance for coastal residents.    But the inefficiencies aren't limited to coast states.

Wherever you drink it, Surf Wax is a great IPA in the West Coast vein, made with four popular varieties of hops: Mosaic, Centennial, Citra, and Columbus.

Weekend Reading 10/10/14

Sightline Daily

But even there I think the mainstream sentiment among my classmates was that Columbus Day was a bizarre anachronism for a US holiday. We used to joke that the best way to celebrate the holiday would be row up to one of the local beaches and corral people into holding pens while stealing their money and infecting them with diseases. Anyway, this week brought a spot of good news: the Seattle City Council voted unanimously to re-designate Columbus Day as Indigenous People’s Day.

The meteorological date is from March 1st, the Vernal Equinox was passed on March 20th which accounts for the astronomical marker when the sun crosses the equator on its northwards ramble.
