TriMet releases Finalist names for new Portland Milwaukie bridge

They are:
Abigail Scott Duniway Transit Bridge,
Cascadia Crossing Transit Bridge,
Tillicum Crossing Transit Bridge,
Bridge of the People and Wy’east Transit Bridge

Personally I think it would shorten best to the Cascadia Bridge or the People Bridge. What do you think? 
PORTLAND, OREGON-Jan. 15, 2014-- Trimet released the four finalist names for the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail bridge on Wednesday. A naming committee reviewed 9,500 entries and narrowed the list to: Abigail Scott Duniway Transit Bridge, Cascadia Crossing Transit Bridge, Tillicum Crossing...

Most of the bridges have longer names we just don't use, don't they? I imagine if it's named for a person people would just say the last name.

Quite a feat to cover every DW story, rank them, and provide a color commentary to accompany your strolls through Netflix's catalog. 
This weekend, Doctor Who turns 50, and we celebrate a rich history of time travel and wild adventures. But which of the nearly 250 Doctor Who stories is the best, and which is the worst? Here's our stab at ranking every single Doctor Who story, in order of quality.

I didn't realize the TNG pinball machine at Ground Kontrol (fun enough already) was signed by Wil Wheaton.

What a wild ride it's been hanging out with Songza! I first used it to DJ a dance when it was a music search engine that let you make playlists out of whatever it could scrape off the Internet. Now it employs humans to complement and craft my musical tastes with custom playlists. What will a future hold with Google and Songza together as partners?
 
Whoa! Songza is joining +Google and we're gonna make your life more awesome. (cc: +Google Play )

Good news! The universe felt that we were figuring too much out and so made itself more complicated in response.

Math.  Rightly viewed.  The Bertrand Russel quote is the perfect introduction, too.

I like how the computer portion has two screens of mathematics (binary rep and computer logic)

A nice run through of writing tips from P. D. James. I find it amazing how professional writers can develop characters, setting, most of the plot, etc before they even start seriously writing!
 
Another set of tips for writers - this time from P.D. James - crime writer and author of Children Of Men.

What's your favourite writing advice?

Mine was from Bernard Cornwell who said to analyse other peoples' books from your preferred genre; to pick them apart, to note how much action, description and dialogue there is. He said that's what he did - and he's probably the most famous and successful Historical Fiction (non-romance!) author there is.

Introduction
I will talk to anyone at any time, about:
  • Bayesian statistics,
  • short stories,
  • speculative architecture,
  • proper crema technique,
  • west-coast/blues dancing,
  • stochastic optimization, etc.
I finished NaNoWriMo in 2011.  I tried it again in 2012 and realized that having a full time job makes that harder.
Bragging rights
I have a pretty nice watch.

Unusually great selection in craft beer bombers, six packs, and 24 count variety packs. They started carrying more Elysian beers after I mentioned how much I liked them. Some other sundries here but they really specialize in beer, ice cream, pet food, chips and smiles.
