Get excited about the North Greeley bikeway project as it nears completion

Looking north on North Greeley from the Adidas pedestrian bridge.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) There’s been significant progress on the North Greeley Avenue bikeway project since the last time we checked in. Much of the bikeway between Willamette and Going is completed. All that remains is to turn on the new bike traffic signals, finish important crossing treatments, and a few other details. I rolled over last weekend for a closer look and I’m convinced: When complete, this bikeway w...

North Greeley path shapes up while neighborhood group says progress is on hold

Nice new path south of Willamette Blvd.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) The N Greeley bikeway project is tantalizingly close to being finished. About a week ago I rode a new section of the separated bike path that begins south of North Willamette Blvd. As you can see in the photos, it’s very nice. Anticipation of this new connection between the popular Willamette Boulevard neighborhood greenway and the bike lanes on North Interstate Avenue, is high. It’s not often we get 1.5 miles of un...

Are There Active Volcanoes on Mars?

Mars is a dead planet — "Or is it?" asks the New York Times: Previous research has hinted at volcanic eruptions on Mars 2.5 million years ago. But a new paper suggests an eruption occurred as recently as 53,000 years ago in a region called Cerberus Fossae, which would be the youngest known volcanic eruption on Mars. That drives home the prospect that beneath its rusty surface pocked with gigantic volcanoes that have gone silent, some volcanism still erupts to the surface at rare intervals. "If t...

Halloween Words & Phrases

Everyone’s favorite in the United States, Halloween is gaining popularity in Russia. And since the festival of spirits, witches, and pumpkins is tomorrow, I hope it will be helpful to put together a list of words and phrases on this topic.

Ten years ago, one of our bloggers said that in the late 1990s, she didn’t even know about Halloween. She also mentioned that the Russian Ortho...

The North Greeley separated bike path is finally open!

(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) It has been a long time coming but I am happy to say that the North Greeley Avenue bike path is open. I shared a sneak peek a few weeks ago so I won’t bore you with details again, but since that post the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has finished the striping and, more importantly, the bike signal at the north end. But first, a few more photos of the path in all its glory (last time I was there the striping wasn’t done): Now, about that s...

These are the 19 Airbnb execs rebuilding the company for growth and an IPO amid the biggest travel industry crisis in decades

2020 should have been a celebratory year for Airbnb, a time when founder CEO Brian Chesky took the company public in one of the biggest tech IPOs of the decade. Instead COVID-19 hit and devastated the travel industry and Airbnb was forced to trim about 25% of its workforce and bench some of its more ambitious moonshot plans. As the world begins to ease travel restrictions, Airbnb is expected to eventually bounce back to its former glory, if it can execute well. It is up to these 19 Airbnb exec...

Why Do We Have an Electoral College Again?

Who elects the president of the United States?In a democracy, that shouldn't be a trick question. Thanks to the Electoral College, it seems like one. The American people cast their ballots on a Tuesday in early November, but on a national level that vote is legally meaningless. The real election happens about six weeks later, when 538 presidential electors -- most of them average citizens chosen by local party leaders -- meet in their respective state capitals and cast their ballots.Nearly a...

Commish Eudaly’s office works with police to solve “deliberate act” of nails in Interstate Ave bike lanes

It’s taken years of complaints but it seems we’ve finally the attention of city officials on a recurring bike lane safety issue that might have a malicious origin.

We first reported about this in March 2017, but that wasn’t when the problem started. A quick search of Twitter posts shows that complaints go back to 2012. Someone tagged...
