Between 1993 & 2017, total freeway lane-miles in the 100 largest U.S. metro areas increased by 42% (31% more than the population growth of 32%). So, free-flow on highways resulted, right, DOTs? Wrong: congestion skyrocketed by 144% (4.5X higher than the population growth).

2/7
And yes: 42% is 31% higher than 32%. Errors with percentages, especially regarding #elections, are made constantly. OK, back to crushing the “building your way out of congestion” logic: #Nashville’s traffic delay increased by 329%, or ~5.5X the % increase in lane-miles added. 3/7

Big day of speakers in the #NE02 House race.

Getting ready to hear @RepJayapal speak at a @karaforcongress rally.

Tonight @GOPLeader speaks to the @dcrponline on behalf of @RepDonBacon.

We @OWHnews are here. Let us know what you’d like to know.
Eastman is in a three-way Dem primary with @Gladys4Congress and @Ann_Ashford. But @karaforcongress has an edge in name ID. She was the @NebraskaDems’ nominee in 2018. She lost to @DonJBacon by about two percentage points, essentially in Sarpy County’s Republican-leaning firewall.
One question many have asked about @karaforcongress was whether she might bank more toward the center this time to try to appeal more to moderates in both major parties.

At least in the primary so far, the answer is no.

Not expecting many fireworks today at the #Omaha City Council’s first meeting back in the new year.

That’s usually a curse.
Here's today's City Council meeting agenda if you'd like to follow along:

cityclerk.cityofomaha.org/images/agenda/…
The most interesting item on the agenda might be Item 16, a liquor license for a dog bar at 1231 S. 14th St.

Another highlight is probably Item 17, a liquor license for the popular diversion rising near Westroads Mall, @Topgolf.

Today is the last day in 2019 to get your fix from the #Omaha City Council. The next meeting is in January. Here is today's agenda to follow along:

cityclerk.cityofomaha.org/images/agenda/…
There is caroling at #Omaha City Hall.
Today's agenda has some interesting tidbits.

First up and likely to generate at least some interest is a change in No. 17 for a state tax credit to call some areas east of 72nd Street extremely blighted.

Here's our first story on it, via SUB PLUS:

Not expecting a big crowd today at the #Omaha City Council.

Part for weather. Part for votes.
This is where I'll try to put live tweets about today's #Omaha City Council meeting. Should be saner than last week's marathon.

Here's today's agenda, if you'd like to follow along:

Perhaps the day's two biggest news items are the debate about how much more to pay the winner of #Omaha's next mayoral election. Here's our most recent story on that:

1 of many tweets regarding this post.

A couple examples of media's malice, lying, hypocrisy, manipulation, projection etc.. etc... In other words: Fake News!

Today's #Omaha City Council meeting could be a doozy.

I'll be live tweeting off of this string.

Here's today's agenda if you'd like to follow along:

At least four major items being discussed. Among them, the new contract for sidewalk snow removal, a year after many residents who didn't shovel snow in time paid exorbitant rates.

From @OWHnews:

Then there's the #vaping tax vote, a proposal by Council president @ChrisJerram to expand the city's occupation tax on tobacco to cover vaping and vaping products.

Here's some recent coverage:

OK, #TeamPete - it's time for some real talk.
Recently, I've been seeing a lot of grumblings about the media and their coverage - or lackthereof - about our guy @PeteButtigieg.
@PeteButtigieg I get the frustration, but as someone in the media field, I'm telling you, there's no conspiracy or cabal out to sabotage Pete's campaign. Not within the world of credible news and info media anyway. Leave those conspiracies to others.
@PeteButtigieg Instead, let's follow the #RulesOfTheRoad and turn our frustration or negative energy into even MORE grassroots efforts. If you've paid attention to the mobilize site, you'll notice organizers are setting up all kinds of things you can join to help/get involved.

1. On Friday 6th June 1919, there was a #RaceRiot in the city of #Newport in #Gwent, #SouthWales. What happened in #Newport had a huge overwhelming effect on #RaceRelations for years to come. Here's a clipping from @nytimes about the #riot
2. As @renireni pointed out in Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race:

"Riots always seem to kick off in the summer." 🔥🔥🔥

In 1919, there were riots in:

🔸#Chicago
🔸#Baltimore
🔸#Omaha
🔸#Newport
🔸#Liverpool

+ and more

#Cymraeg #History #Cymru #Hanes
3. According to the #history, a #black man insulted a #white woman in #Newport, which lead to an altercation. It kicked off in #GeorgeStreet [see below], where 3000 white people formed into a mob and attacked the houses of the two black people on the street.

Work in progress. #DDay #Omaha
Attention to detail is what creates realism. My wrist and my eyes hate my obsession, but it's all for a good cause. #wip
I've been doing this for 4 years and I still see every photo as an opportunity to develop my skills. I'm v. grateful for all the kind messages that I receive but I'll never allow myself to believe that "I'm the best". This is crucial and so important.

Here is an actual clause of the #USConstitution:

“...no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”

US Constitution, Article VI, Clause 3

#buescher
#nominee
#Nebraska
Suppose that Article VI had a further Clause, Clause 4, that stated, “no racial identity shall ever be the basis for a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
Now, such a clause would prohibit the President from granting or withholding an office based on racial identity, and, in like vein, would prohibit the Senate from withholding consent to a nomination, or granting it, on the basis of racial identity.

💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: threadreaderapp.com to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
3/n
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.
