Take a cabin tour of an Airbus A380 jumbo jet




Around the time the Airbus A380 jumbo jet was introduced in 2007, company executives predicted sales of 1200 planes in 20 years.

Nearly 10 years later, there's still a long way to go to reach this goal.


Airbus to Sharply Cut Production of A380 Jumbo Jets.  (The New York Times, 7/12/2016)
More than 500 seats can be packed into the A380’s two decks, and several airlines have capitalized on its generous proportions to introduce lavish amenities for its first-class passengers, including opulent lounges, health spas and “apartments” equipped with double beds and private showers.

A different video is available in this 2014 post.

So why is a major-league baseball player with anemic RBIs, lotsa strikeouts, and average BA so hot with Nickelodeon viewers?


The Wrap telz us what we need to know.


One good season and an allegedly great haircut.  (OK, so maybe he's putting up some good numbers this season, but his 2015 batting average indicates that he's an 'outlier'.)



Sorry, folks.  And here you thought it was all about performance on the field.


Plus he's got an increasingly hot name.  (Though it's faded a bit of late.)


Chicago, September 26, 1980: The Sears Tower and the Standard Oil Building


I was on my way back to Oshkosh after a month-long vacation, which included visits with old college friends in Boston, a camping trip with my brother in the Great Smoky Mountains, and the wedding of one of my best friends from college in Buffalo, New York.

On such a beautifully clear and sunny day, I decided a trip into downtown Chicago was in order.

The Sears Tower is now known as the Willis Tower.



The Standard Oil Building is now called the Aon Center


That's not Batman, but a window-washing scaffold on the east side of the building.

Warning.  I'm finally getting around to digitize my slide collection from the 1970s and early 1980s. I'm likely to be sharing for awhile.

Behind-the-scenes battle over WEDC records spills into public view.  (Madison.com, 5/8/2016)
Good soldier Agency CEO Mark Hogan and other board members pushed back against the Democrats at a February public board meeting, raising concerns that their request was a waste of taxpayer resources for a problem that has already been resolved, and that the tenor of the discussion has negatively affected employee morale. 
Damn!  That pesky public records law.  Last month, the Justice Department’s open government office intervened, urging WEDC to do a better job communicating and observing that the state Public Records Law requires agencies to fulfill requests “as soon as practicable and without delay.”

As reported in WEDC backpedals on gag order for board members.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 7/13/2016)
Publicly and privately, the Walker administration has expressed frequent frustration with the criticisms and open records requests made by Lassa and the other Democratic lawmaker on the WEDC board, Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca of Kenosha. 
In his budget bill last year, Walker proposed removing all the elected officials then on the WEDC board, including the governor himself, two state senators and two state representatives. In the end, legislators left the lawmakers on the agency's board but granted Walker's request to withdraw as chairman.

I bet you didn't watch major-league baseball's all-star game last night either

Baseball All-Star Game Draws Record Low TV Rating.  (The New York Times, 7/12/2016)
Fox said Wednesday that the game drew a 10 share and 8.7 million viewers. 
Ratings represent the percentage of homes with televisions tuned to a program, the share is the percentage of households watching among TVs in use at the time.
Baseball remains the most-watched all-star game of the four major North American pro sports.

Walker says the commission basically drew straws to determine if its chair would be a democrat or republican. 
"I don't have any say over it one way or the other. It was literally up to them, so whether people like or dislike her appointment, that's one the democrats specifically made," said Walker.
