Chicago Business shared an “Mag Mile close to landing Nordstrom Rack” ?article about more changes to the landscape of the Mag Mile in Chicago. With CompUSA, Linen’s n’Things and Lord and Taylor all going under, vacancy has soared in the historic area. American Girl moved to Lord & Taylor which left the CompUSA area even more desolate then before. Nordstrom is looking at putting a Nordstrom Rack along the Mag Mile, within close vicinity of their Nordstrom flagship store. The landscape will continue to evolve along the Mag Mile, will it be just as Magnificent? Is Millennium Park and Loop becoming lucrative for businesses to consider? The Rack would be moving from the Loop over to the Water Tower area. Web Impressions of Millennium Park continue to climb drastically. More to come…
Thanks for The Ticket Atlanta for sharing.? The demonstrative picture of the body scanner was interesting. Traveling frequently, I am all for additional security, and don’t find these items an invasion of my privacy when saving lives. Is the scanner to revealing? After having to pull up my shirt before, for buttons, unbotton the top 2 bottom of my jeans, I would say hardly. The article notes Canadian restrictions, are we doing the right thing, or the wrong thing?
The highlight of the article was the Stock Chart for the company that?is producing the technology, from $20 average to $28. At least something is booming in this economic downturn.
I can remember back to the delays of the A380 and Boeing reassuring those with orders, it would not make the same mistake as the A380. The assembly of the plane throughout various locations, with a final assembly point continues to plague the plane with more delays. While the plane is Boeing’s most successful pre launch, the delays continue to impact shares.
Most recently, the correcting of an issue where the wings connected resulted in damage done during ground testing from screws. Fortunately, found on the ground but I would have strong hesitation being the test pilot for a plane full of jet fuel, with such potential for error.

Hello??? Chicago? Can you hear me? Can hear that noise? That is the sound of the trains slowing down and the economy slowing down still in Chicago. Recent articles show that the city of Chicago has similar risks of that of other cities in California, relative to the latest bust in the economy. While living in Chicago, the city opted to increase fares slightly, but then offer it free for citizens.
What must be done? INCREASE the price of the ride, coming from California which has a horrible system (but nice trains), Chicago has great bandwidth. I rarely drove, and the cheap transfers, and overall cheap costs made driving in the city trump the train. The city needs to evaulate the pricing, and maybe take an accounting course, if you run in the red too long, it’s a BAD thing, combined with a state that could run in the red, downhill quickly.
Hate to put down fellow neighbors, but the system was so ran down, it took years to recover, charging a bit more now across the board will help with future deficits.
