Friday reading

First off, you should not be reading this. You should be off on your bike.But if trapped at your computer, some Friday reading:

Missed this last week from our friends at the Cleveland Fed: Urban Decline in Rust-Belt Cities

WSJ today has: Journal Concierge: Insider's Guide to Pittsburgh, Pa.

Also, some Cleveland Fed folks will be speaking at the PNCIS User's conference you can still register for.

On a pseudo-Cleveburgh note, sent in from the peanut gallery is this I missed from last month: Time to Collapse the Wheeling/Steubenville TV Market into Pittsburgh

Again, you ought to be riding your bike when it is on, but on 11:30am Sunday on KDKA I was interviewed along with the Pennsylvania Secretary of Labor on all things workforce.   If you are so inclined to watch or record.

and I overhear a story in the PG (maybe Trib too as far as I know??)  this weekend is about how the Port Authority is going to get real time tracking data online.  So a real GTFS feed I presume.  Wonks delight?

Also check out the flight path map...I think I saw it on Slate?

Wonder how this would've looked twenty years ago...

Love these links, 1st Wheeling/Steubenville should have always been part of Pittsburgh especially when you look at media market maps for Phoenix and Denver covering 2-3 states in the mountain west! 2nd if you look closely the WSJ just called Heinz Ward a RUNNING BACK! LOL.

In the Cleveland Fed article re "Rust Belt" statistics..I continue to love how even places like the Fed calculate percentage changes of raw numbers correctly, but when a percentage change is compared they just subtract on number from the other. Is that Kosher?
