Seattle-area residents least likely in nation to give their neighborhoods top marks

How would you rank your neighborhood on a scale from one to ten? The HUD-sponsored American Housing Survey asked just that. It's a very subjective question. Maybe we don't like to brag — or maybe we just like to complain.

Schedule Takes A Toll On The Chicago Blackhawks

from Mark Lazerus of The Athletic, I casually asked Jonathan Toews if he ever thought about the differences in travel playing in the Eastern Conference, particularly the New York area, versus the Western Conference, particularly Chicago, the second-easternmost city in the West. “Yup,” he said sharply, as if he had been waiting for this question all his life. “A lot.” Toews then beat me to the follow-up. “And from what I hear,” he continued, “Phoenix is getting added to our div...

UPS and Latch are expanding in-building deliveries to 10 more cities

After launching apparently successful pilot runs in San Francisco and New York, UPS announced today plans to expand its in-building delivery service to 10 additional U.S. cities. In mid-2019, the parcel service will be adding Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, Miami and Seattle to the list.

What the F*&@ Happened to All These Airlines?

I haven’t done an Ask Cranky post in awhile, and this one seemed like fun. Hi Brett,I was looking through the archive of “Who the F” articles you’ve written through the years, and I think it would be cool to see a follow up on each of the 19 airlines you’ve covered. Some have taken off and become extremely successful like Allegiant, and some are PeoplExpress. I’d love to read a where-are-they-now? Thanks! Great idea.

Amazon Go, One Year Old, Has Attracted a Host of Cashierless Imitators

The Seattle startup went so far as to open a Detroit office to cozy up to the auto industry. A few months later, Mighty AI signed a deal to do just that, joining the race to help brick-and-mortar retailers keep pace with Inc. A year ago, the e-commerce giant opened a cashierless convenience store called Amazon Go, marking its biggest effort yet to change the way people shop in the physical world.

Engage to save Seattle neighborhoods

Despite Viadoom, things are still busy in downtown Seattle. Especially at City Hall where the council is charging ahead with sweeping plans for upzones across the city.

Photographers get super views of ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ eclipse — even in Seattle

January’s usual weather conditions — with chilly temperatures for much of America and cloudy skies in the Pacific Northwest — aren’t exactly ideal for tracking a total lunar eclipse, but Sunday night’s “Super Blood Wolf Moon” actually lived up to the hype. Photographers across much of the country braved the cold to get some jaw-dropping snapshots and time-lapse views. Even in Seattle, where the weather forecast wasn’t promising, the hours-long progression from supersized full moon to a ruddy dar...

Poll: 69% of office workers in Los Angeles, Orange counties would leave town for a new job

When office workers were asked if they’d move for a job, 69 percent of those surveyed in Los Angeles and Orange counties said, “Yes!” Now before you think you see another hint of a local mass exodus, please note quitting jobs is the workplace’s hottest trend. And people may tell a pollster they want to relocate, but Census trends show Californians don’t move much these days. Also, note that career itchiness is a national trend. This survey by the Robert Half temp agency found in the 28 cities po...

Heating Up! Jason Tartick Calls Kaitlyn Bristowe Someone Very Special

Everything happens for a reason. The Bachelorette alum Jason Tartick isn’t upset that he wasn’t chosen to be the 23rd Bachelor because it would’ve prevented him from connecting with a very important person in his life — Kaitlyn Bristowe. Inside Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham’s Romantic Hawaiian Honeymoon: Pics Jason, 30, appeared on Good Morning America with fellow Bachelorette alum Blake Horstmann on Monday, January 21, and said he’s “very thankful” that he wasn’t selected as ...

The Seattle Talk Regarding Ken Holland

Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times believes the Seattle expansion team will hire a GM this year and lists a few names, including... It’s worth keeping an eye on Detroit, where longstanding GM Ken Holland has a year remaining on his contract after this season with former Red Wings captain Steve Yzerman poised as his successor. Yzerman, 53, is an obvious Seattle choice, given he built a Tampa Bay Lightning franchise – much of it under then-CEO Leiweke – currently leading the President’s T...

Look for Seattle NHL team to hire a GM this summer rather than next

NHL expansion teams typically don't hire a general manager more than two years before starting play. But the Seattle franchise is leaning towards picking a GM this summer instead of next in hopes of being better prepared for the June 2021 Expansion Draft.

Dave Grohl's Drum Kit

On my recent trip to Seattle over christmas, I went to something called The Pop Culture Museum. It is by far, the most expensive museum I ever entered. The price was $32 bucks. The space is huge with gigantic ceilings but then you enter these tiny rooms with the so-called displays and there is sort of nothing to see. After you visit the 4 miniscule rooms, which takes about 5 minutes you can then leave the place. I sat down in the "Nirvana exhibit" which is about 200 square feet wide and drew bas...

Wet and Grey Versus Dry and Sunny

I find Seattle to be cold for much of the year. People often find that strange, since Seattle’s winters are mild relative to other cities. Part of the explanation is that I’m a tropical gal who loves the heat and has little resistance to the cold. But after living in Salt Lake City for some of the time, I think it’s more than that. The bigger factor is that wet and grey feels much colder than dry and sunny, even when the latter is at a lower temperature.   Winter temperatures in Seattle seldom f...

The 8 Best Defensive Forwards in Hockey History

  To many, high scoring, firewagon hockey carries the highest degree of entertainment. While others, this author included, prefer the bite-your-nails-to-the-knuckle closeness of a hard-fought, tactically masterful, defensive battle. Though many may not realize it while clamoring for larger nets, the elimination of the offside whistle and marbles to replace hockey pucks, the sporting world turns to the tightly-contested Stanley Cup Playoffs for the most rugged marathon of organized on the world s...

New poll: Tolling freeways, city streets deeply unpopular across the board in Seattle and King County

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced last year that the city will develop a plan to toll city roadways, part of its efforts to reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse-gas emissions. And the state plans more toll lanes on I-405 in the coming years.

Seattle Times poll finds strong support for more transit — but not bike lanes

Two-thirds of Seattle residents said they would prefer to make it easier to travel without a car rather than make it easier to drive. Countywide, 57 percent agree. But that transit enthusiasm falls short, in the city and in King County, for building more bike lanes.

Blues’ Perron Proving to be Perfect Signing

With no disrespect to David Perron, the news that the winger had signed once again with the St. Louis Blues last summer was met with mixed reactions. Very few were excited. Many were indifferent. Some were disgusted. After a disappointing 2017-18 season in which the Blues missed the playoffs for the first time in over half a decade, the team’s decision to turn yet again to Perron, who had departed to the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft a year prior, was simply not the impact mo...
