Grimy, Glorious, Gone. The Divergent Paths of 7 Train Stations - The New York Times
The middle of the country has a tortured romance with its train stations, often grandiose structures that shaped local history but stopped serving a purpose. The announcement this summer that Detroit’s crumbling train terminal — among the best-known symbols of that city’s decline — would be turned into futuristic offices brought new attention to the problem of what to do with aging depots.

The 3D-Printed Age: Why This Futuristic Ohio Factory Is Proving Mark Twain Wrong - GE Reports
Mark Twain allegedly claimed that when the end of the world came, he wanted to be in Cincinnati “because it’s always 20 years behind the times.” The quip is funny, but his strategy to ride out Armageddon in the Queen City would backfire today. A case in point is GE’s Additive Technology Center located along Interstate 75 as it bisects the northern suburb of West Chester Township.

Site-selection expert: Here's why Cincinnati is a great place to do business -
Companies seeking to open or relocate industrial and distribution facilities would be remiss if they didn't have Cincinnati on their short list of destinations.

That's according to site-selection expert Brad Migdal, who said Cincinnati's central geographic location and access to major shipping routes and highways give it an advantage many other similar-sized cities don't have.

The Rise Of Entrepreneurial Communities - TechCrunch
This summer, as Chairman of the House Small Business Committee, I had the opportunity to honor an innovative business accelerator called First Batch. This isn’t your typical business accelerator. First Batch is a product accelerator in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, that focuses on helping entrepreneurs and makers bring physical products to market. It’s a great resource supporting the intersection of technology and manufacturing, and it’s another example of the resources communities are using to build entrepreneurial ecosystems.

When a City’s Workforce Stretches Well Beyond Its Borders – Next City
Since 2008, a regional collaborative group called Partners for a Competitive Workforce — or just “Partners,” for short — has worked to close the skills gap in the greater Cincinnati region.

So any local effort at workforce development needs to focus on an entire tri-state area: southwestern Ohio, northern Kentucky and southern Indiana.
