Major Facelift In Store For Hennepin Avenue In Downtown Minneapolis
The Hennepin Avenue Downtown Project is set to begin after the Final Four Basketball Championship in April. The four-year project would span the thoroughfare between South 12th Street and Washington Avenue. Traffic will be one lane at times, and people will also have to deal with closures. A section between 12th to 7th streets will be closed for up to two years, and the other section will be closed for two more.

Blue Planet | Economically Sustainable Carbon Capture
Blue Planet’s technology uses CO2 as a raw material for making carbonate rocks. The carbonate rocks produced are used in place of natural limestone rock mined from quarries, which is the principal component of concrete. The carbonated solutions formed from the captured CO2 are used to form a carbonate mineral coating over a nucleus or substrate. The carbonate minerals form a synthetic limestone coating. This permanently sequesters the captured CO2 as CO3= in the carbonate minerals comprising the limestone coating

Project Failure – Wembley Stadium | Strategic PPM
Appears to be a blog or site about Project and Portfolio Management (PPM). The Wembley stadium project is discussed as a case study in failure of project management. Much detail provided.

Conclusion
-------------
"Fundamentally, when attempting a unique work item, such as a novel load bearing steel arch as fundamental part of a stadium, it is very hard to estimate cost and duration with precision. Awarding the work via a bidding process with a fixed price contract exacerbates this problem, because the winning bid will be more likely to underestimate the required work due to the winner’s curse. In addition, it appears information flow could have been improved on this project – if junior employees were aware of potential delays and senior management was not, information was clearly not being shared effectively."

Woodshop / Workshop - 2nd Floor of Garage
Great creativity setting up this garage attic woodshop. Although I plan to keep my shop at ground level and use the garage attic (if built) as a study, this is still a great way to visualize how the space could be used.
