Musical message My husband had been dead one year on March 11. I went to the cemetery to visit him, talked to him, told him I loved him. Got in my car to leave. I always keep my radio on in my car. This song started playing the second I turned my switch on: "If we never meet again this side of heaven, I'll leave this world loving you." I felt like he was sending me a message of love. — Jurialean Black, Rocky Face Long-distance vision Last fall I experienced an extra-special blessing from God. My husband and I were planning a long-anticipated vacation in the Holy Land. The night before we were to leave I was invited to participate in a TV interview at 9 a.m. We were scheduled to leave at noon, so yes, I could make it. Chattanooga is the home to the National Memorial for the Unborn, located on Vance Road. Visitors from Kenya, … [Read more...] about Last week we published the first installment of readers’ experiences with divine providence. Here are more of their stories.

Land near public transit such as BART would be more easily developed into mid-rise apartment buildings under a proposal before California lawmakers. (Photo by Dan Honda, Bay Area News Group) A gentler, still incredibly controversial housing bill is back — with a powerful new ally By Matt Levin | CALmatters Last year, one piece of housing legislation overshadowed all others. Senate Bill 827 by Sen. Scott Wiener, Democrat from San Francisco, would have allowed developers to build four- to eight-story apartment buildings next to public transit stops around the state. The goals were laudable: Ease regulations on the construction of desperately needed new housing (the state acknowledges it is short 3.5 million units), and reduce commuters’ greenhouse gas emissions by placing more homes near greener transportation such as subways, light rail and bus stops. The method was radical: Take away some of the zoning power of cities, which traditionally decide what … [Read more...] about Daily Business Report-Dec. 19, 2018, San Diego Metro Magazine

Hundreds of the company’s consultants frolicked in the desert, riding camels over sand dunes and mingling in tents linked by red carpets. Meetings took place in a cavernous banquet hall that resembled a sultan’s ornate court, with a sign overhead to capture the mood. “I can’t keep calm, I work at McKinsey & Company,” it said. Especially remarkable was the location: Kashgar, the ancient Silk Road city in China’s far west that is experiencing a major humanitarian crisis. About four miles from where the McKinsey consultants discussed … [Read more...] about How McKinsey Has Helped Raise the Stature of Authoritarian Governments
This much is indisputable. Texas is redneck territory. The flipside: Texas is also becoming browner, gayer, and more feminine every day. I had never really thought of my place in the state, or even in my adopted hometown of Fort Worth specifically, until I went to vote last May at my kid’s elementary school. “Democrat!” I boomed, even before the senior citizen working the Republican table in front could finish asking me, friendly enough, “Republican or Democrat?” I was angry with him based on my immediate assumption that as a white man of a certain age and political party he was an undoubtedly rich misogynist racist. “What’s wrong with me?” I groused to myself while checking off boxes on paper with my pencil like a paranoid idiot instead of using the machines. I’m so sorry. I’m a monster. At the time, I considered myself to be in pretty good shape. I was running about three miles every third day and rucking once a week … [Read more...] about Wear Wars
Since 2010, Columbia Business Monthly has honored Midlands attorneys by publishing our Legal Elite feature. Winners are chosen by the votes of area attorneys. Legal Elite is the only award program in the region that gives every active attorney the opportunity to participate. We highlight the top vote-getters in 20 categories with their biographies and a Q&A. The methodology is that while attorneys are allowed to nominate members of their own firm, for each in-firm nomination made, there had to be an out-of-firm nomination. Attorneys are not allowed to vote for themselves.The selections for Legal Elite for 2018 are presented within the following pages and we are pleased to honor them.Travis WheelerNexsen PruetOn the litigation front, Travis Wheeler often represents corporate plaintiffs victimized by price-fixing conspiracies that elect to “opt out” of class actions to pursue their claims individually.
