14th Ave. intersection dedicated

Posted by Geeky Swedes on December 14th, 2008

One year ago, Agnes Meserole was hit and killed while she walked across 14th Ave. at 58th St. on the way to her teaching assistant job at St. Alphonsus Parish. Today, volunteers with the 14th Ave Visioning Project and members of St. Alphonsus dedicated the intersection, which has been redesigned with a raised crosswalk, curb extensions and a landscaped median.

Volunteers hope the 14th and 58th project is the beginning of a larger effort to revamp 14th Ave. all the way down to Salmon Bay. Their goal is to eliminate the median and convert 14th into a boulevard with large open spaces for broad walkways, trees, bike paths and even gardens. Diagonal parking and traffic circles are also on the design board, and the stretch south of Market St. would would give more breathing room for large trucks.

Their next step is to gain support and funding for the project, and a fundraising effort is getting underway to provide a permanent memorial to Agnes Meserole at the 14th and 58th intersection. You can learn more about the 14th Ave. Visioning Project here on their website.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I have come to understand that costs for internet degree pros tend to be an incredible value. For instance a full Bachelor’s Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online gives a Bachelors of Business Administration with a complete school feature of 180 units and a tuition fee of $30,560. Online learning has made taking your certification far more easy because you can easily earn your current degree from the comfort in your home and when you finish from work.
