Thanks for NEO's highest compliment: appreciation from Cool Cleveland x 2

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Wed, 07/05/2006 - 04:55.

I am really appreciative, this morning. After posting what was certainly the saddest news I can imagine, about the hardship my staff has suffered as a result of a lack of appreciation from my former business associate, Peter Holmes, I opened up this week's CoolCleveland and found that their crew had featured TWO postings from REALNEO. I am very touched and thankful to Thomas and his team for noticing REALNEO and taking an interest in the thoughts posted here - thank you. Please show appreciation back to CoolCleveland... if you are not a member, see what you've been missing... subscribe at CoolCleveland - all free - this is a real NEO must,  and send feedback to CoolCleveland letters at the links below, and supporting the upcoming CoolCleveland/Tech/Ingenuity party at Fat Fish Blue, July 13, and the Ingenuity Festival, as described below... but first, here's the nice write-up about REALNEO from CoolCleveland today, July 5, 2006:

Dust control not effective in preventing children's exposure to residential lead hazards

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Mon, 05/22/2006 - 13:00.

 It is extremely important to control all dust in and around any home where there is a lead risk. Unfortunately, research shows that where there are lead risks dust control alone has little impact in reducing lead poisoning - the reduction in elevated blood lead levels is measurable and worthwhile but not sufficient to have an overall benefit to the child, or surface a solution for society.

If Beethoven died of lead poisoning, then its good enough for you

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Mon, 05/22/2006 - 09:11.

 

Lots of people know that lead poisoning played a role in the fall of the Roman Empire (lead pipes) but in December 2005 it was learned that Beethoven died of lead poisoning - probably from a combination of pipes, lead seals on wine and documents, crystal, ceramics and paints - they started outlawing lead in Europe at the end of the 19th Century... it took America nearly a century longer...

 

Eleisha Eagle show at Pheonix Lakewood is "NEO-Knows" Sunday treat

Submitted by Norm Roulet on Sun, 04/23/2006 - 14:15.
 

NEO Knows Pheonix is a great "coffee house", and the Lakewood Pheonix is unique and special, and often features live music. April 23, they featured a really terrific singer from Tennessee - now living in LA - Eleisha Eagle, whose  booming voice, authentic character, and original songs and compositions were a real treat for folks hanging out and drawn in by the perfect gift.

Sure, stuff like this happens all the time - everywhere - great local business owners go out of their way to bring culture to their communities - artists travel the world to share their talent - and fortunate folks participating in the beautiful world come across these treats all the time, if receptive, but that doesn't make finding such joys and the places where found any less special. Thus, I thank, compliment and celebrate Pheonix Coffee Lakewood and Eleisha Eagle - if you missed her today, check her out at http://www.eleishaeagle.com/

Lead poisoning is still one of the most serious public health concerns facing children in Cuyahoga County.

Cleveland’s rate is in the top five nationally, with the current U.S. overall rate at under 2%.

Dr. Bruce Lanphear, The Sloan Professor of Children's Environmental Health and the Director of the Cincinnati Children's Environmental Health Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati, will review new data on the adverse health effects of childhood lead exposure, review the major sources of childhood lead exposure and discuss the regulations and tools necessary to shift our focus toward primary prevention.

Political Bribery is Not “Business As Usual”

Submitted by Kevin Cronin on Thu, 02/02/2006 - 00:20.

Ohio Congressman Bob Ney is certainly entitled to have the facts proved before he’s considered guilty, but it’s a disservice to voters to claim the charges against him are “just politics” or “the way things work in DC.”  By asserting that these allegations are “the way things get done,” supporters drag politics and government lower and give disgusted voters more reasons to give up on government.  To really understand the accusations and why the allegations are more than routine, readers need to understand the nature of the charges and the facts at hand.
