Great list! I will say in regards to #50, I have had a boss that told a coworker who couldn't get out of their driveway because of all of the snow to call a cab... No joke.
Will any fundraisers be held at Winterhurst?
With so many unemployed PD workers picking up nickels on sidewalks, Lanci could have some fun with this new project, since staffing won't be a problem......but it will take significant cash - major cash.
Ummm...Jim's Open Kitchen in Solon!
Eat at Joes in South Euclid should have been on this list. It's the best diner in Cleveland hands down.
My car is not so new...and it does not drive well while cold. I drove my other car instantly without warming...and my head gaskets are blown. Mechanic says its essential to warm your vehicle because it causes trouble to the engine.
I am baffled both by this column and by many of the comments. The law is likely aimed at safety concerns, mainly because lawmakers don't all understand everything there is to understand about automotive and/or mechanical things. Parked semi trucks are required to have their wheels chocked, even though air brakes have, sine the 1970's worked such that a lack of air applies the brakes. People do, however do things like forgetting to put their vehicle in park (if automatic), or apply the parking brake (if manual), and therefore it became necessary to make a law to require such things in the name of Safety. (This, despite the fact that it was already illegal to be negligent with a motor vehicle.)
Especially with newer cars, letting your car idle to warm up is not exactly necessary. However, the first several minutes of driving should be done gently. Letting a car idle for a long period of time does often allow excess fuel to enter the oil, thereby reducing the lubricity of the engine's oil. That said, idling for a few minutes is not really harmful, and will contribute to somewhat reduced emissions if the vehicle has the opportunity to get out of "open loop" before being driven. Additionally, allowing a vehicle to be fully defrosted and defogged before driving is a significant safety factor. Depending on conditions, there are occasions in which no amount of scraping is going to completely clear the driver's view. Getting into a cold vehicle with a warm body and warm breath can contribute significantly to window fogging as well. Therefore, there are legitimate safety concerns for warming up a vehicle that apply to everyone, not just the elderly. This, not to mention small children who should not be buckled into car seats in bulky outerwear, and therefore should be placed in an already warm vehicle as often as possible.
In some instances, when the driver will be out of the car for only a few minutes, it makes good sense to just leave the car running. Not stopping and starting the car a zillion times can reduce some wear on the engine, as well as save a small amount of emissions since the vehicle will start in open loop every time. Of course, the inverse is true for idling long periods of time, which will increase emissions as well as engine wear. When it is extremely cold, say anytime when the wisest course would be to remain inside but cannot, it is often wise to leave a vehicle running so as to avoid the possibility that it might not restart. This is especially true if there is any indication that there is a problem with the vehicle's charging system or the battery is having a hard time meeting the demands of starting. Clearly, the best thing to do in such a situation is have the vehicle repaired, but there are times when this situation may occur without an opportunity for repair, and in such instance, for human safety, the best course is to leave the vehicle running when possible.
Of course, all situations involving vehicles, idling, and cold weather require common sense and a little bit of true knowledge about how your vehicle works. No law can account for every scenario, nor consider the realities of current, ever-changing technology. It makes the best sense to take the course of action which provides the safest, and most sustainable result. This choice will vary for every situation.
They property cleaners are suposed to hold items in storage for a time.
I'm amazed at the double standard that is accepted in this country for saying this word. Why are there 2 sets of rules for using this word, black people can use it and white people cannot not? If people want equality, then nobody should use the word.
What this teacher said is probably not the smartest thing but, firing him is not the answer.
I guess he will be making several calls to Russo Rosalina?
Madeline, I find his extreme cowardice even more shocking than the hideous racist comments. Unfortunately these self-serving, hypocritical thought processes are rampant and in certain communities the norm. Had the community not been as diverse as it is, I am afraid his peers would have allowed this. Unfortunately, the harm done is great because it occurs in our educational systems and with our elected officials. Areas where many community residents seldom get involved.
I think what the fuck sums it up.
FirstEnergy will be paying the Browns an average of about $6 million a year for at least 17 years for the right to have its name on Cleveland Browns Stadium.Since the tax payers own the stadium why not charge FirstEnergy 2 million a year to put their Logo on the stadium.Haslem & the Cleveland City Council are screwing the tax payer again.
If this was a non public figure people would not be blaming her. Something happen to warrant her calling cops. Get off his jock. No one knows what happens behind close door. This is a know when situation they have kids. Bless the family
hes gunna be someones bitch and the prison whore
how about a dome so it can be used year round? Why should a team that has such a shitty record get more $ to fix a brand new stadium that can't be used for anything but football? For REAL?
Cleveland is full of a bunch of crooks that are just WASTING MONEY and ruining the place-get rid of them all and let's see some LIFE in Cleveland--
Let's rebuild the Music Business here, cut the Police State shit and let's actually have FUN here again...There is more to Cleveland than SPORTS-What happened to our BALLET?
Let's get some PRIMO Concert Venues, cut the prices so people that aren't corporate CEO"s can go out with their families to enjoy the area...Support SMALL BUSINESS so that people have jobs and can afford to do more than try to keep a roof over their heads--12 Million a year for the Stadium? Ludicrous!
Just one more stupid law...and they can't even pass a common sense law to protect animals from abusive trainers and neglectful owners. Oy Vey!
Yeah...this article is great-my Cali friends are like, "Why do you live in that shithole" and I am like, "8.0 Earthquakes don't happen here, up here in the NE we don't have major tornadoes, Mudslides, Firestorms-I think we got you beat!" Go Cleveland--all you have to do is kick Madonna and all the other rap artists (except the Beastie Boys) out of the Rock Hall of Fame and we're getting somewhere!
Dan Bennett your an idiot. No she did not get caught cheating he is the man that she has always wanted and got but let's say that is the case Dan Bennett you are still an idiot. There is no reason a man should ever put his hands on a women and she is not the type of women who would call and make a fake police report. He is a man with anger and alcohol issues which means nothing but trouble but he has a good lawyer so.......
