Guest Opinion: Losing the 7th Avenue greenway

This post from Kiel Johnson comes in response to news announced today that the Portland Bureau of Transportation has decided to route the Lloyd to Woodlawn Neighborhood Greenway on 9th Avenue. “9th Avenue will become the greenway.” The words put finality on years of advocacy, countless hours spent knocking on doors, talking with neighbors, making yard signs, and writing letters. This past Sunday my living room was overflowing with my fellow neighbors and their children who live on 7th. They h...

It looks like a cryovolcano erupted and spat out ice all over the city. There’s more salt on the road and on the sidewalks than in a Breton salt marsh. “We have to go through the garage door,” Feng warns me. “The walkway is just… solid ice. And it’s thick, eh, I tried to break it with the metal shovel but…” Oh yes, I’m definitely back in Canada. A friendly reminder to the rest of the world: To all my European friends who ask if #winter is almost over in #Canada… nope. @IsaUtah

Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast; Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast

This post originally appeared on Nomadic Chick. It all began, fittingly, on the first day of summer with a game called ‘tangled’, where everyone puts their hands in the center of a circle, grabs two random people’s hands and then proceeds to untangle themselves to make a circle as this is “team-building” and “creates friendships”. It was our first day as counselors at an American summer camp in up-state New York and we were wondering just what we had gotten ourselves into. In the fray of hand g...

Mizuno RB Tour/RB Tour X: Does The World Really Need Another Tour-Level Golf Ball?

There are fundamental truths in this world one can’t really argue with. One of those is if you want to play golf, you’re going to need golf balls. Let’s pause and allow the brilliance of that observation sink in. Another fundamental truth is where there’s a need, there will always be battalions of people with machinery making stuff to fill that need, troops of marketers convincing you you can’t live without it, and a cadre of salespeople making sure you buy theirs.

The recent spread of coyotes across North America did not doom deer populations

Coyotes eat deer, but not enough to limit the deer population at a large scale. A new study of deer numbers across the eastern United States has found that the arrival and establishment of coyote predators has not caused the number of deer harvested by hunters to decline.

Aggressive Instagramming is ruining Southern California's super bloom

People trampled California's poppies for the 'gram, and ruined it for the rest of us. Fields of fiery "super bloom" poppies are lighting up the hills of Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore, a city about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. Thanks to uncommonly heavy rains this winter, much of Southern California is seeing a massive burst of wildflower blooms across the state. The poppies in Walker Canyon are so lush, they can be seen from space. > Superbloom visible from space - Califor...

Tiny song bird makes record migration

The bird's trek between its breeding grounds in the central and western boreal forest of North America and its winter home in the Amazon Basin is one of the longest songbird migrations recorded.
