    Not logging on ... nawing on For those familiar with relatively ancient Internet lingo, they are referred to by different names than what I will substitute. But "mud rats" are far less harsh as label than what one could have used. You see, mud rats travel between one or more supply websites...

    Authoring a New Thread

    I thought this matter a non-issue going forward, but yesterday I experienced yet another variation of this problem of 'Authoring a New Thread' on this forum regarding the actions of Darkstar416. A change in wording to a thread to suit that Moderator's belief rather than those of the thread...

    U.S. Elections 2008

    Why say anything in response to that last throw in? Returning in the meantime to what is more important, the "primary" in US context does double duty. On the one hand, both state primaries and state caucuses are grouped under a singular label of "Primaries" to describe the entire exercise of...

    U.S. Elections 2008

    I beg your pardon, it most certainly is a primary and it is called that by both parties. The Caucus is a method of selecting a candidate, and there are variations of the causus method for the Republicans versus the Democrats. The Iowa Caucuses are alternately called the "first primary" in...

    Trump Tower (Chicago)

    The permit delay shows some reluctance by the city, because Trump International Tower Chicago was on the priority or fast-track list. But once that permit is received this allows for move-in to officially start, before the building is completed. Trump International Hotel & Tower gets city...

    U.S. Elections 2008

    There is no way to highlight Obama on the title line other than to capitalise it (standard is always bold, you cannot use colour or italicise). _____ It is ironic that Obama is being accused by a few of sounding like a preacher with his intonations and repetitive use of certain words -...

    Trump Tower (Chicago)

    I assumed that this was not done in Toronto based on the original question from Conrad Black, and what I have seen in my brief stay here. I do have two or three questions after your input: How was the construction managed? (By this I mean how were the tenants protected from any particular...

    Trump Tower (Chicago)

    Mr. Alexander's full name and title are David Alexander, Senior Vice President, McHugh Construction. As you will note, Trump International Tower Chicago is specifically singled out for early phase move-ins, as is Aqua. Permits had not been granted at the time of this article. James McHugh...

    Trump Tower (Chicago)

    Yes Conrad Black, I am serious, although that was intended to be a bit of a teaser at the end of the post in which I left it. There are certain types of skyscraper buildings, in certain cities, and for various reasons, that developers push to get people into as early as possible - usually in...

    Arch Record: Herzog & de Meuron Go To New Heights

    Herzog & de Meuron have recently worked through three of these seemingly free form, twisting projects - from stumpy to thin. None of them are initially appealing to me, although I have been interested in most of their work from the moment they appeared on Architectural scene. Thus far the...
