Mobility Options

Monday, August 7th, 2017

This is one of the images associated with our recent political post:

Leading a next generation city takes great responsibility. A metro of the future has no democratic streets, libertarian
traffic lights, or republican parks. We must remain optimistic. On a recent visit to Pittsburgh we saw how the former steel fortress has morphed into a smart town. If they can use eds/meds and a high quality of life to attract @google @uber and @amazon to their region, why can’t we. It takes more propulsion and less resistance. We are entering a new intersection for @syracuse1848, and tech acceleration (or
living by algorithms) wont save us. We look forward to seeing fresh new policies on fostering economic inclusion and opportunity, immigration, youth engagement (and retention) as well as a plan to advance neighborhoods. @walshformayor @chris4cuse @davis4mayor @juanitaformayor #watercoolertalk #optimism #makersandbreakers #forcasting #paradigmshift #environmentvexpectations #ifmayorsruledtheworld #onondagalake #hovertowork #aletterfromthefuture #turnthecorner #buildcommunitycapacity #mobilityoptions

Hustle Matters

There’s a myth that potential is mainly for young folk and children to develop; another myth says potential comes out automatically. Well our favorite syndicated radio host  George Kilpatrick (aka, GK, aka Uncle George) has worked a job into a destiny! Would you believe he started his current show only a decade or so ago and last night he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

On-air and off, he continues to lead and inspire.

What’s your excuse?

Coach (Ken) Carter

Motivational speaker and former high school basketball coach Ken Carter recently gave a presentation at Levy Middle School and encouraged students to be respectful and avoid negative peer pressure.

“Young people, you are one-third of our population, but one-hundred percent of our future,”  he said.

Carter & Morgan, Rivals Reunited as Friends

Carter is best known for the character portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson in the film Coach Carter (2005). Carter, who was also a high school basketball star in Northern California as a youth, maintains that (even for players) education is more important than playing ball. During his visit he also found friend and former high school rival David Morgan, who now works at Syracuse University.
