On affordability: Both CNT's Housing + Transportation Index and the Brookings Institution's Affordability Index have found that transit access has a positive impact on affordability even when housing prices are factored in. For a quicker read, here's a CityLab article breaking down the data with charts.

On driverless cars: Here's a well-sourced AVs piece from leading expert Jarrett Walker, a review of studies showing ride-hailing's negative impact on transit, and some hard data from the Boston planning commission showing the same.

On transit and health: I would first recommend the seminal Urban Sprawl and Public Health. More recently, this study of transit and mental health, this one from AHA on transit and heart health, and a research overview from NIMH!

Bus improvements being in the plan is, well, in the plan — as are pike improvements. There's plenty out there on transit and economic growth, transit and disability, etc. Happy to help.

> “Wilshire Baptist Church Associate Pastor Mark Wingfield has written extensively on the topic of transgender issues and the church. An article he wrote on the topic went viral, and since then he's talked to hundreds of transgender people and has written a book called ‘Why Churches Need to Talk about Sexuality.’”

> ”‘The most astounding thing to me about Christians who condemn people for being transgender is that I cannot procure in my mind a single verse of Christian Scripture that would be applicable to this situation,’ he said.”

Mr. Wingfield seems poorly acquainted with the Bible.

Genesis 1:27 — “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

Genesis 5:1-2 — “This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created.”

Deuteronomy 22:5 — “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.”

1 Corinthians 11:2-3, 14-16 — “I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I have delivered them to you. But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. Does not nature itself teach you that for a man to wear long hair is degrading to him, but if a woman has long hair, it is her pride? For her hair is given to her for a covering. If any one is disposed to be contentious, we recognize no other practice, nor do the churches of God.”

Moreover, the early church fathers clearly condemned effeminate men; pederasty; homosexual sex acts, including, but not limited to, sodomy; lesbianism; cross-dressing; and other sexual and gender-related acts, lifestyles, practices, etc. they understood to be perverse.

Throughout all of Christian history, the only morally justifiable and acceptable mode of human sexuality is chaste, loving sexual intercourse between a husband and wife (though monogamy has not always been taboo, particularly among 1st through 3rd century Christians). Therefore, when this unfortunate young lady decided to medically, and otherwise, alter her appearance, she did so knowing full well what the college’s most likely response would be. Nevertheless, she decided to continue to modify her appearance, surgically and otherwise, to resemble a man.

When one does what she did, they should expect to get what she got. This should surprise no one.

Furthermore, unless one is simply hostile to the unchanging, unchangeable Christian teaching on human sexuality and the family that has prevailed for thousands of years, one should respect Welch College’s decision, for it was made in a manner consistent with their sincerely held religious beliefs. For them to have done otherwise would have been hypocritical. Secular humanists, and other anti-religious people, frequently cite hypocrisy as an objection to religion. Criticizing people for being hypocrites and criticizing them for sincerely practicing their faith is intellectually dishonest, and not a good faith approach to engaging religious people in meaningful conversations about social, moral, or other issues.

I generally buy a 5 pack at Climb Nashville, rather than the membership - since I have a hard time committing to regularity. I don't have my grip endurance built up, so normally I can't hold onto the wall after more than half an hour. I'll generally try to tie in some cardio, a class, or some lower body stuff so I feel like I get my time and money's worth.

What I love most about climbing is the strategic part to it. Sure you can power up a wall, but it takes strategy and finesse to be able to stretch your endurance.

Performance Rock Climbing is a great book I read in high-school when I started climbing. It really helped me work on technique.

Both East and West have great routes from 'just more challenging than a ladder', to 'I don't think a nickel counts as a foothold'. They're all marked, so its easy to realistically challenge yourself.

The University School classes are probably the best in town, but they don't release the catalog until around thanksgiving, and the classes usually occur in the first few months of the new year.

Chef Jamie Watson is a local chef who does mostly French cuisine, which is perfect for learning techniques, and he does some intensive workshops from time to time. The Salud school at Whole Foods is probably the next best option, but I haven't heard great things. You also may want to consider a book; I'd recommend this one.

I live 11 miles outside of Nashville, and had problems picking up anything besides NBC and PBS with a set-top antenna. Upgraded to a setup like you are looking at; outdoor antenna that fit in my attic ( ) and added a preamp ( )

I pointed it towards the ABC/CBS/FOX towers and crossed my fingers. Fortunately, I was picking up all the major networks, PBS, and a bunch of independent stations. somewhere around 45 stations/substations total. Works great, couldn't be happier.

The problem you may is that the broadcast towers are on the far side of Nashville from you. You may have to go with a large outdoor pole-mounted antenna to pick up anything.

Not sure if my setup is good enough to work in Murfreesboro. You could order it from amazon, hook it up without mounting anything to test it, and if it doesn't work, return to amazon.

You might be interested in this book, the Nashville Public Library has a copy or two you can loan out:

Quite detailed, I like the breakdown for different types of trails (horse/bike/walk/run/etc) and uses (family, adventure, nature sights, history, etc)

Yeah. Shoot me your email and I’ll send some photos out of the cookbook I have. My parents suffer from there’s-no-written-recipe-itis, but I found an excellent Cantonese style cookbook. Every recipe I’ve tried is solid and some have been vetted by my folks (with a few personal tweaks).

You're joking, but I just finished this book:

There's a whole chapter about how DARPA is engineering cyborg animals and drones that look like birds and dragonflies.

u/docjunkie333 · 2 pointsr/nashville

Of course you don't want anyone in your home. My point was lost I guess, because it sounds ignorant to just randomly blame the homeless.

I'm more of a realist, but hey, I did create a feature documentary about the homeless in Nashville. So maybe I do like rainbows, sunshine, trees, etc. In a sane world that comment would be laughable. Unfortunately, this world is far from sane.

In a word, "Republicans". In a few more words, "Republicans and rich WASPy white shits who don't want the hoi polloi coming into their neighborhoods".

They've been working on light rail along the West End axis for years now. Maybe one of these days they'll do something.

Ironically, Nashville had streetcars back in 1866, which kind of puts the lie to "we don't have enough people to support public transportation".

I read the link (not the book). Out of the reviews, I respect this one the most:

2 stars. And it’s not just the boomers. It is cyclical.

I would highly recommend buying one of these Audubon Society guides. They have a variety of them - for wildflowers, birds, trees, and even mushrooms.

Also, the purple flowers you see might be larkspur.

Chuck Cowdery is the author of Bourbon Straight and is one of the more reputable sources for American whiskey news.


Sazerac, the company which owns the Buffalo Trace Distillery (makers of Eagle Rare, Weller, Van Winkle, etc), Barton Distillery, A. Smith Bowman Distillery, and others poached the George Dickel master distiller to run their recently acquired Popcorn Sutton distillery in East TN with the intentions of making aged whiskey rather than just moonshine. Not long after, they also poached his protégé who was again the current Dickel master distiller. Now it looks like they are relocating to Murfreesboro to directly compete with Jack Daniel's and George Dickel.

You can get the Chinese Spyware version on amazon for cheaper. I've considered doing the same thing, but I worry about all of the dumbasses who will vandalize it either accidentally or intentionally

I'm not a felon because I was never arrested nor charged for a felony. Consequently, I was not found guilty of a felony.

On the other hand, the people who are, indeed, arrested for felonies tend to be poorer and blacker than everyone else. And the people who actually get convicted for a felony? If you had to pick poor and black, you'd be right more than wrong.

Possible explanations for this would be that there are more blacks than whites in the US, but this is obviously false.

The next possible answer is that white people use less dope than black people, or that white people don't sell dope, or that white people commit fewer crimes. But I've seen white people smoke plenty of weed, snort lots of coke, sling plenty of stuff. I'd reckon your favorite explanation is that black people just commit more crimes, but I don't buy it.

I say that black people get busted more often because of unequal attention from law enforcement. Once they get arrested, and then are less likely to be able to defend themselves adequately because $$. Generations of public policy in the US, from slavery, through Reconstruction, to Jim Crow, to redlining, to the GI Bill have all made it so that black people are less likely to have the money to buy the same justice that others can.

There is certainly an element of personal choice to everything. And certainly I have had white acquaintances who got busted for heavy things (larceny, burglary, heroin x 5) and went away for awhile. That said, there's a pattern here that is greater than individual choice.

I am not a convicted felon because I live in the right neighborhood, had the right sort of parents, and never got busted for any crime. I don't think that my story would be the same if I were African American or poor.

If we accept that more black people are convicted because more black people do crime-- which I wouldn't-- then one still has to ask why is that so? Is it because black people were born somehow inherently incapable of making good decisions? That doesn't seem likely.

As for your second question, the only dealers I've been acquainted with were supporting a habit or making some side money. I have read an ethnography or so that shows the ultimate hourly wage of a crack dealer at the height of the crack boom to be less than minimum wage, tho.

Ding ding ding! Yes, it's not most people's idea of a job. I doubt a single one of the people selling it now grew up dreaming of one day selling a homeless newspaper. People that complain about The Contributor usually don't know much about it. We live in a country of vast income inequality. When people complain about this opportunity for homeless people at the bottom of our society to possibly better their circumstances, I always wonder why it offends them so much.

Here's a documentary I made in Nashville about poverty and The Contributor years ago that may shed light on how it works for some.
