    Duck Island townhouse offers stunning views from two rooftop decks: House of the Week – cleveland.com - March 22, 2020 by admin

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- If youre looking for a room with a view, the townhouse at 2267 W. 19th St. has them in spades. The downtown skyline to the east and the West Side Market to the west: you can truly see it all from the homes windows and two rooftop decks.

    Unit 8 is located in West Nineteen, a new collection of townhomes built in 2019 in Duck Island, where the historic and eclectic neighborhoods of Ohio City and Tremont meet.

    Knez Homes sales agent Dorit Sade calls the design quintessential Cleveland, blending contemporary and classic brick architecture.

    The architecture takes its cue from both the industrial heritage of the site and the manufacturing dynamic of its connection to the industrial flats, she says.

    But the pice de rsistance is the fourth-level entertainment room which has a wall-to-wall bar and access to those two rooftop decks.

    Fun off-meta Hearthstone decks to try before the new expansion – Dot Esports - March 22, 2020 by admin

    Though the past few months of Hearthstone have been dominated by Hunter, Rexxar isnt the only Hero having fun.

    Even if the expansion feels unbalanced at times, Descent of Dragons still managed to introduce some super fun decks to Hearthstone. Since a new expansion is right around the corner, here are a few decks you should take for a spin while you still have the chance. Some of these decks include cards that will rotate out in the coming year, so remember to craft with caution.

    Prior to the Conjurers Calling nerf, Highlander Mage was one of the strongest decks in the game. It received more support when Amazing Reno was introduced through the latest solo adventure, but the deck still isnt considered top-tier. That being said, the deck is still extremely fun. Though it probably isnt as fast as you may like it to be, the deck offers so many paths to victory that winning feels fresh every time. With Cards like Zephrys, Reno, and Dragonqueen Alexstrasza sticking around, you can expect to see a new version of Highlander Mage when the next expansion launches.

    Use this code to copy the deck for Hearthstone: AAECAf0EHooByQOrBMUEywSNCL7sAs7vAu72Asb4AqCAA+iJA4OWA5+bA6CbA4qeA6GhA8KhA/yjA4ukA5KkA/KlA4SnA/qsA/CvA5GxA4S2A4y2A+G2A5+3AwAA

    Another unique deck being shrouded by the meta is Quest Druid. This deck revolves around the quest card Untapped Potential. This card eventually allows the Druid player to earn a Passive Hero Power called Ossirian Tear. This causes your choose one cards to have both effects. Since Embiggen and Token Druid are doing so well in the meta, Quest Druid hasnt seen as much play. This is a shame because Untapped Potential is one of the most rewarding Quest cards currently in Hearthstone. If you play Druid, this one is definitely worth taking for a spin.

    Use this code to copy the deck for Hearthstone:AAECAZICBiSu0gL1/ALYoAP4oQP2rQMMQFZf/gHEBr/yAqmiA8iiA++iA9mpA/m1A8a3AwA=

    Another fun deck being eclipsed by its brother in the meta is Holy Wrath Paladin. If youre playing against a Paladin deck on the ladder, its probably some sort of Mech build. Though Mechs are fun, its a shame theyre overshadowing one of the most fun builds in the game right now. Holy Wrath Paladin is essentially an OTK deck. Youll spend most of the match setting up for the Holy Wrath and Shirvallah combo. Shirvallah the Tiger costs 25 mana, but costs one less for each mana youve spent on spells. Holy Wrath causes you to draw a card and then deal damage equal to its cost. Combining the two makes for one heck of a wombo combo.

    Use this code to copy the deck for Hearthstone:AAECAZ8FDPoBhQPtBfQFzwb7DP37AoT8Ar2GA/yjA5asA/22AwmcArMD3AP2B6f3Avz8Atn+As+GA+yGAwA=

    Youve probably faced quite a few Galakrond Rogue decks on ladder. What you probably havent seen many of, however, is the Highlander variant of the archetype. Cards like Zephrys and Dragonqueen Alexstrasza make Highlander decks very entertaining. Throw Galakrond, Kronx, Skyshiv, and Siamat into the mix and youll have a Highlander build that is overflowing with value. Though most people prefer the non-Highlander version of Galakrond Rogue due to its more concise playstyle, the Highlander version can provide hours of fun if piloted correctly.

    Use this code to copy the deck for Hearthstone:AAECAaIHHrQBsgLtAs0DrwSIB8f4AqCAA4+XA5CXA5KXA/uaA/6aA/yjA/KlA4SnA/WnA7euA7muA7+uA8GuA/6uA6qvA86vA/2wA4KxA5GxA+O0A5+3A8vAAwAA

    Admittedly the weakest deck on this list, Aggro Overload Shaman looks to make the best out of a bad situation. Early in the Descent of Dragons expansion, Shaman was on top of the mountain. After a series of nerfs all but butchered the class, most players have abandoned it entirely. For those of you who are stuck with a ton of Shaman cards and nothing to play, Aggro Overload Shaman is definitely worth the try. The fun in this deck comes from the element of surprise. Since your opponent will often expect Galakrond Shaman, youre able to set up big face damage with cards like Cumulo-Maximus and Lava Burst. If you want to give your Shaman collection one last chance, this is the deck to do it with.

    LETTER: All hands on deck approach needed – The News Herald - March 22, 2020 by admin

    SundayMar22,2020at12:02AM

    Dennis Wilson of Niceville says we must take a no-holds barred approach to beating COVID-19.

    Coronavirus is dangerous because it is silent, pervasive, deadly and only truly diagnoses after it damages one's health or takes a life.

    Defeating this virus requires "all hands on deck" with every segment of America engaged. While doctors and nurses risk their our health and life in this battle, the general public also has a role to play.

    Unfortunately the few essential ways that people can respond (washing hands and staying away from crowds) have been neglected by some. Two reasons many have shirked their responsibility are ignorance and arrogance.

    Ignorance: In America there is a segment that is totally unaware of the threat or simply incapable of understanding. Some have become suspicious of the news media due to the fake news mania. They simply ignore the truth even if carried on CNN or FOX News.

    Arrogance: It is human nature to be self-centered and see things only from our own personal perspective and for our pleasure. Many are intellectually aware of the threat but give in to their selfish desires to do as they wish. This need to fulfill personal satisfaction trumps (no pun here) logical thinking to address this threat to America's health and prosperity.

    Those who join large numbers at the beaches or insist on gathering with others in bars and restaurants are more concerned about themselves than for their fellow Americans in this fight.

    This battle will last for months and thus we must subordinate personal interest for the greater good of defeating a major threat as we did during The Great Depression and also during WWII.

    COVID-19, Remote Learning and the Beauty of All Hands on Deck – Inside Higher Ed - March 22, 2020 by admin

    Never before, in the history of higher education, have so many people, in so many different roles, worked so hard to reach a single objective.

    That objective is the rapid transition from face-to-face instruction to remote learning.

    Every college and university is now in a place where face-to-face classes must be transitioned to distance learning.

    The speed at which this transition must occur means that every professor is turning all their attention to the challenge of how to teach remotely.

    The work of the professors is complemented by an enormous range of nonfaculty campus educators.

    If a school is clever (or well-resourced) enough to have made the smart investment in building teams with learning designers and educational developers, then those nonfaculty educators are engaged full-time in the transition to remote learning. They are working directly with faculty and departments, creating self-service training materials, and designing and running workshops.

    Learning designers and educational developers are working closely with other colleagues across the institution to prepare for remote courses. Librarians are all in. So are the professionals who work across information technology units, from front-line technology support experts to back-end system administrators.

    The move to remote learning requires the expertise of colleagues in offices as diverse as student accessibility and student affairs, campus general counsel, off-campus programs, the registrar, communications, and a dizzying array of student-facing and behind-the-scenes campus support organizations.

    Watching the transition to remote learning unfold on my campus in real time, Im blown away by what can be accomplished when everyone works with a common purpose.

    Decisions that once took weeks now take hours. Previously entrenched organizational and bureaucratic impediments to agile decision making are being overcome by the necessity to move quickly and at an institutional scale. A bias toward action is replacing the habit of paralysis by analysis. People are trusting each other to make the best decisions they can with the information they have. And everyone seems willing to adapt as circumstances change.

    Across our higher ed ecosystem, an unprecedented number and range of those employed at colleges and universities as faculty and staff are all working flat out to accomplish this move to remote instruction.

    Faculty who have never had to teach students they did not see face-to-face are suddenly facing the challenge of teaching using only digital mediums of instruction and communication.

    Staff who worked on the full range of the services that colleges and universities offer are now spending the majority of their time working to support faculty and students in remote learning.

    Everyone is exhausted. And everyone is concerned about getting this as right as we can for our students and our professors. But we are all working together. That feels pretty good.

    How is the transition to remote learning going on your campus?

    3 New Hints For Magic: The Gathering Cards From Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Revealed – Epicstream - March 22, 2020 by admin

    There are five new Magic: The Gathering Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths Commander decks coming with the release of the upcoming set this April, and Senior MTG Designer Gavin Verhey has teased a few hints for the new cards that will be included in the Ikoria Commander decks.

    Over on his Instagram account, Verhey shared a video clip that he recorded while being stuck at home due to the coronavirus, and he reveals three hints for the new cards from the Ikoria Commander decks, including a mono-white ramp card, a rules text that protects you and planeswalkers you control, and Magic's new trilobite.

    Here are Verhey's three hints:

    "There's a mono-white card that lets you repeatedly ramp Plains from your Library onto the Battlefield!"

    "There's the rules text, 'You and planeswalkers you control gain protection from that player.'"

    "There's Magic's fourth ever TRILOBITE!"

    Watch the video below:

    Verhey went on to say that he will share more hints on Monday, so expect a new video clip that day. It looks like Wizards of the Coast is ramping up the power of white after many players criticized the Commander format's lack of power balance in colors, deeming white to be underpowered.

    WotC still hasn't revealed the decklists for the Ikoria Commander decks, but the company has already revealed the names of the 5 decks.

    Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths will officially be released on April 24, 2020. Prerelease events will take place from April 17-19. Ikoria: Commander will officially release on the same day as the release of the main Ikoria set.

    ‘Below Deck Med’ Deckhand Says He Would Rather Deal With Awful Charter Guests Than the Coronavirus – Showbiz Cheat Sheet - March 22, 2020 by admin

    Below Deck Mediterranean deckhand Bobby Giancola shared that hed much rather deal with crazy or terrible charter guests over being quarantined with the coronavirus.

    A very bored Giancola took to his Instagram story and invited fans to ask him anything. A fan asked him, Corona quarantine by yourself for 30 days or a season of all s**tty charter guests? Giancola said the answer was pretty easy. S**tty charter guests. LOL. At least it would be entertaining and Id get a tip.

    Another fan asked when Giancola was going drinking with friends. But he said not until the quarantine is over as Giancola is taking the threat seriously. He also shared if hed return to Below Deck. Plus what is Giancolas biggest fear? Its not the coronavirus.

    A number of fans wondered if Giancola would consider returning to the series. He appeared as a deckhand on seasons 1 and 2 of Below Deck Med. He told fans hed love to return if he was asked back. If they ask most likely lol. It was a lot of fun, he shared.

    Giancola worked for Captain Mark Howard and Captain Sandy Yawn on Below Deck Med. A fan wondered if hed be interested in working with Captain Lee Rosbach on Below Deck. Of course, Giancola was into it. Definitely, he wrote.

    He added that his favorite charter when he was on the show was in the Exumas. But when it came to his favorite Below Deck season, Giancola admitted he hasnt been watching. I honestly havent seen any and dont have cable, he replied. Giancola also revealed hes been working as a freelancer in the yachting industry. Im freelancing and working in yacht sales at Denison Yachting, he shared. Fans also asked about his time as a firefighter too.

    While Giancola munched on quarantine Oreos he answered a question addressing his biggest fear. Its not the coronavirus, but instead a common problem many people face in South Florida. I honestly hate driving in the rain as silly as that sounds, the deckhand replied.

    Hes also been pretty productive while being self-quarantined. Giancola and Below Deck Med deckhand Colin Macy-OToole recently teamed up to share a soothing tune with fans on social media. This is the second time the guys created a song from a distance. Happy music Monday everyone! Heres our new song Into the Airwaves feat @bgcola28. Enjoy and stay safe everyone! Macy-OTooletweeted along with a video.

    The first song that we did, that was something I wrote, and then I recorded my guitar part and then sent it to him, Giancola told Showbiz Cheat Sheet. And then he did his piano part on top of it. And then this last one, he did the piano part first and sent it over to me and then I just freestyled something on top of that. He promises more is to come as the guys have gotten into a groove of working together from New York to Florida.

    Breakingviews – Review: A loose cannon on the deck of the world – Reuters - March 22, 2020 by admin

    Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman attends a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, September 18, 2019.

    LONDON (Reuters Breakingviews) - Ben Hubbard has good timing. The extraordinary story of Mohammed bin Salman has been crying out for a deeply reported and definitive study ever since he came to prominence five years ago. Saudi Arabias crown prince is particularly in the spotlight right now and not just because the kingdom is presiding over the G20 amid the worst pandemic to hit the globe in a generation.

    On March 6, Russia sent global oil prices tumbling by failing to agree to a proposal by Saudi to cut supply. But the real shock which sent Brent crude down another 20% and further since - was Riyadhs reaction to the snub. The kingdom said it would now pump to its full capacity to grab market share, and promptly slashed prices to do so. It was shock-and-awe, imbued with a certain brutal logic - but also fundamentally self-defeating. It was a signature move by the man universally known as MbS.

    Since outmanoeuvring and displacing his predecessor Mohammed bin Nayef in 2017, the crown prince who is just34 has established an astonishing record of vaulting ambition and ruthless suppression. He has fanned a war with southern neighbour Yemen which has turned into a humanitarian catastrophe; locked up hundreds of senior business people and Royal family members at Riyadhs Ritz-Carlton in return for $106 billion of compensation for alleged corruption; arrested and held the Lebanese head of state for over a week; self-sabotaged his nation by blockading neighbouring Qatar; and centralised power to an unheard-of degree in the name of overhauling Saudis oil-dependent economy.

    None of this is unfamiliar territory to Middle East-watchers. But Hubbard, Beirut bureau chief for the New York Times, brings more to the table. Having regularly visited Saudi since 2013 before MbSs father King Salman ascended to the throne he knows the kingdom well enough to have a network of contacts that give an informed but non-government point of view. Thats essential, because the crown princes record and personality contain important nuances.

    In his better moments, which were more numerous before October 2018, MbS comes across like a sort of Gulf-area Tony Blair. He charmed journalists, think-tankers and businessmen at home and abroad by being very different from the stereotypically laconic, conservative Saudi leader. The fervour with which he has pursued his goals occasionally yields impressive oratorical results, as when he wowed an assembled crowd of western dignitaries at the 2017 Future Investment Initiative by harking back to a more tolerant Saudi society. And he has attracted various pop stars, heavyweight boxing title fights and World Wrestling Entertainment hoopla to the kingdom, allowed women to drive, and acknowledged the need to pivot the economy away from oil.

    Other actions, however, always look unhinged. A $500 billion plan to create NEOM, a new city on the Red Sea replete with passenger drones and robots, looked unlikely even before oil prices crashed below $30 a barrel. And some are thuggish, or sinister. Hubbard devotes a fascinating chapter to the crown princes associate Saud al-Qahtani, nicknamed Lord of the Flies, who has marshalled a social media army to carpet-bomb those issuing critical opinions online. MbSs corruption crackdown is compromised by the inability of outsiders to see how the crown prince, who does not emanate from the richer side of the Al Saud family, suddenly found himself affording $456 million for a 440-foot yacht.

    All these strands lead up to what has clearly been MbSs fatal miscalculation the grisly murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October 2018 by Saudi agents in Istanbul. Hubbard, who knew Khashoggi, gives a fine, balanced portrait of a man whose Afghan exploits in the 1980s anti-Soviet Union jihad clearly marked him out as more than an impartial journalist, but whose butchering was an insane overreaction to measured criticisms of the new regime. It has shone a spotlight on the detaining of other dissenting voices in the kingdom, which Hubbard worries is on the rise.

    Hubbards narrative suffers slightly by stopping before one of MbSs other big miscalculations the listing of national oil giant Aramco that failed to secure the private sector capital which would have lent the whole affair credibility. His suggestion that MbS will determine where his story goes next also needs to be seen against President Donald Trumps consistent support, even post-Khashoggi, for a regime that fits with a wider anti-Iran strategy. That critical backing could change if Trump loses this years election, or if he just changes his mind.

    Still, this is a compelling contemporary history, full of vignettes that give those who havent had the strange experience of a trip to Saudi interesting insights from hotels with wallpaper that looks like it was hung in the 1970s to the passive-aggressive granting-and-rescinding of visas. The most poignant of these comes at the end, when a valuable kingdom contact responds to a request to chat by regretfully making clear it is no longer safe to do so. MbS may have enabled Saudis to see the latest title fight or WWE smackdown, but they may also be even less free than they were.

    Bettendorf mayor: ‘Its an all-hands-on-deck cooperative effort here’ – Quad City Times - March 22, 2020 by admin

    The twin threats are not lost to local leaders, Gallagher said. He mentioned a regular 11 a.m. call between local elected officials from the five major cities, two counties and others. Its a good organization that has helped us to ready not only to protect our area from COVID-19 but to take additional measures as spring floods will certainly be upon us, Gallagher said.

    The governments of Davenport and Bettendorf are following recommended measures to avoid spread of the virus by postponing nonessential meetings, practicing social distancing and holding virtual or telephone meetings.

    On Wednesday night, the Davenport City Council held its regular meeting and discussed the fiscal year 2021 budget. The mayor and four aldermen were joined by just a smattering of essential city staff. Other aldermen phoned into the meeting, which was streamed live online.

    The flooding and pandemic crises might together create a severe challenge if a flood-related evacuation displaces people from their homes at the very moment locals are asked to stay home to slow the transmission of the coronavirus.

    Weve thought a lot about that, Gallagher said. Locally here, weve pooled our resources to determine what needs we have, especially with regards to PPEs [personal protective equipment], so that if we have to stand up some sort of quarantine we would have those capabilities.

    President Trump is right Now’s the time for ‘all hands on deck’ | TheHill – The Hill - March 22, 2020 by admin

    In nautical terms, all hands on deck means that everyone on board from the cooks in the mess to the mechanics in the engine room pulls together to stave off a natural or manmade emergency.

    Today, a similar call has gone out across America, asking all to put aside personal, partisan and parochial interests to tackle a pandemic that doesnt discriminate among those whose health it eliminates.

    More than 80 years ago, on the beaches of Normandy, our nation experienced its finest hour. D-Day was the moment when we pulled together, and pulled out all the stops, fashioning a brand of unity America had never before seen, forged or felt.

    Now we have a chance to show the greatest generation that younger generations are also able and willing to step up to save the world. During the Big War, the enemy was visible and vicious. Today it is invisible and wholly viral, and its time we unified the freedom fighters who would stand in its path.

    Last weeks Rose Garden press conference did just that, as the president put the first wave of Americas Team on the field leaders from the private sector who proclaimed, to a person (and to a corporation) that they are in, all in, whatever it takes. Each of these leaders, in testimonials delivered with unwavering resolve and patriotism, lifted spirits across the land (and stocks across the Big Board). Collectively, they effused determination and derring-do, that unique combination of attitude and skill that we as Americans use to overcome any problem that challenges us or any crisis that threatens us.

    From the indomitable Dr. Anthony Fauci who never met a disease he couldnt fight to the daily injections of assurance weve received from Drs. Deborah Birx and Stephen Hahn (FDA), it feels like we are taking on the worst armed with our very best.

    Now we need everyone to jump on board every governor, mayor, senator, Member of Congress, officeholders from the past, political contenders in the present.

    There are some encouraging signs.

    The House and Senate are moving with lightning speed to vote in, and deliver out, badly needed financial help for businesses big and small and for people whose jobs have been quarantined by COVID-19. Instead of carping and criticizing, Republicans and Democrats are rapidly communing and cooperating.

    The same can be said of governors, like Californias Democratic Governor Gavin NewsomGavin Christopher NewsomGoogle launches website offering info on coronavirus Hannity offers to help Cuomo in coronavirus response with radio, television shows The Hill's Campaign Report: Officials in spotlight over coronavirus response MORE. He may be suing the feds over the issue of state water rights, but Newsoms all-in to take on and take out the pandemic.

    Here are two more potential COVID-busters.

    First, Id love to see every living President Carter, Clinton, Bush, Obama join with the current president to say that when it comes to fighting this virus, there isnt an inch of separation between us. This tour de force would be a show of force, a decree that noblesse oblige that tradition of acting nobly and generously is alive and well in 2020 America.

    Second, Joe BidenJoe BidenDemocrats grow nervous over primary delays The Memo: Democrats grapple with virus response Obama ebola czar hits Trump virus response in Biden campaign video MORE the presumptive Democrat nominee whos been floating his own coronavirus plan criticizing the administrations should show similar class and selflessness. In words his political advisors might spurn but all America would cheer, Id like to hear Biden say to the president, Look, you and I can air out our differences, and debate the other issues of the day, once weve put COVID-19 behind us. Until we do, Mr. President, Im all in. How can I help?

    In other words, how about a little less Howard Dean and a little more JFK? You know the words: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

    During World War II, General Motors, Ford, and others mass-produced tanks, guns, and airplanes to fuel the Allied victory over tyranny.

    During the past week, we heard American companies are now retooling their factories to manufacture badly-needed medical supplies from masks to ventilators.

    Theyve heard the call, and so have we.

    For America, its all hands on deck.
