He could be in the Mechanical Engineering Department and doing research with respect to biomechanics.  Just as a person in the materials science and engineering department can do research on biomaterials.  Neither of which have to be in the biomedical engineering department.

That is a solid recipe.  I know it's only online but 11W is a good start for #4.  It is a starting point for everybody.

The founder is an alumnus of my high school (Archbishop McNicholas on the east side in Anderson/ Mt. Washington) and he donated a large chunk of money to revamp the athletic facilites/ football field - Penn Station Stadium.

There is an Illinois chain called Meatheads that puts Five Guys to shame.

JBC from Wendy's is pretty amazing. 

For me, best fast food chain is Cincinnati's own... Penn Station. 

Comment 16 Jul 2014

He only took a two year deal with the early option so that he can maximize his earnings as a new max contract with Cleveland will likely increase greatly when the NBA gets a new TV rights deal, etc. which will increase the salary cap and amount of a max deal.

Just makes business sense for him to do so.  

I'm not a Cavs fan, but I do believe LeBron coming home and trying to get a championship for the people of northeast Ohio is part of it.

I have a feeling the Crosstown Shootout might be the thing that would stop this, especially if only 4 teams.  If you include Akron, Ohio, Toledo, and either BG or Miami or Kent St for an 8 team tourney with UC and XU on opposite sides of the bracket to limit rematches.

Charlie Sheen is a very likeable guy and a Reds fan!

Comment 16 Jul 2014

Like so many on here, I would love to go back home to Ohio, whether in Columbus or Cincinnati.  I just hope when I graduate from grad school that will be a real possibility.  Central Illinois and Chicago can be great, but it is not home.

Home is where the heart is and Ohio is...

I wish I could just get into that batter's box, even if I swing for the fences and fall on my ass.

Just repeat something about WT Sherman and they will be quiet.

Comment 15 Jul 2014

13 of 21 series are against teams currently at or above .500 (3 of the 4 other NL Central teams are above .500).  They've played one more home game this year than road game so far.

H: 27-21

R: 24-23

Last six games are at home against Brewers and Pirates. (Last 19 games are against NL Central teams).
