  • Natural gas industry launching plan to expand presence in region
    Guest
    This is almost comical. In previous years, the Powers That Be were heavily influenced by coalitions such as the NEEA to change the Oregon building code to mandate electric heating (via heat pumps) in lieu of natural gas heating. For several building code cycles, this precedent for electric heating for all residential and commercial buildings (new and retrofit) has locked in all those building owners to paying for heat at an ever-increasing electric ...

  • Uber testimony highlights rift between the rideshare startup, Portland cab companies
    Guest
    Like another much-hyped sharing start-up Aereo, Uber is violating laws, regulations, and right of existing transportation businesses. Aereo is now bankrupt. Uber should follow next. Whoever supports Uber is delusional. Before pimping what in essence are unlawful taxicab rides, Uber was offering Napster-like software for pirating digital music. It's a criminal law-breaking enterprise that must compete fairly or just GTFO!

  • How Oregon will survive the loss of Hanjin
    Guest
    As a small business start-up, I rely on receiving products from China. My product has been sitting off Puget Sound for about 25 days now. First the ship must dock, then unload, then moved by chassis to the warehouse, then containers unloaded, then placed on a truck to Portland, then finally to my warehouse. This process is long enough without adding in massive slowdowns due to labor disputes. The behavior of the port company and the union has been ...

  • Pair of Oregon entrepreneurs set for respective Shark Tank appearances
    Guest
    In other stories about Sseko, they say their managerial employees earn much more than the college-track employees, and cite a figure of ~5 times the average wage. That is only about 3.3 USD/hour. That means the college girls are earning much less, especially with 50% held back. Cost of living in Uganda is less, but those college girls could still have take-home that is close to in-country poverty levels. A company selling exceedingly simple sandals ...

    Thanks Joe, I get so tired of the Port's PR campaign about getting freight to T-6 as though that drives our economy. I think you'll find that our biggest "export" via container is air! i.e. empty containers.

  • Car ignition recalls and lean product design
    Guest
    The auto industry is starting to share more costs across manufacturers for complex and challenging design work, like new transmission design, and certain new engine technologies. For example, GM and Ford have been co-developing transmissions since 2002, and recently extended that agreement.

    Guest
    GM new electric are is a a high-roofed hatch, promises "more than" 200 miles on a charge at a price around $30,000 — not far from the market Tesla is looking to go after with its upcoming Model 3. It supports DC fast charging, though GM doesn't say exactly how long it would take to fill it from empty.

  • Closing the Gap: The two Oregons and the way forward
    Guest
    Joe Cortright exemplifies the arrogance of the liberal Portland mentality along with the complete misunderstandin g of rural Oregon. If the liberals would just stop trying to destroy the natural resource economy while growing the (at least according to JC) far superior "new economy to knowledge and innovation". Both economies could prosper! And perhaps we could be an economically successful State again.Consideri ng that under the genius of the ...

    Guest
    Especially now that so many generics are coming onto the market, it's great that so many people are finding help with depression and so much research is going into expanding what some of these foundational drugs COULD be. In the mean-time, people can still benefit from traditional generic medications, especially with some sites offering secure and very private ways to purchase them and have them delivered. We have some great information on Cymbalta ...

    Anytime an article goes against the left, then it is automatically irresponsible journalism. A newspaper printing an editorial should not be as impactful unless the allegations had merit. If he did no wrong, he should have stayed in office and seen this to the end. What's with the attempt to delete all those emails??

    Guest
    I still don't see what he did that was so wrong. The Willamette Week appeared to me to be looking for problems and talking big talk, but as I continually ask myself and others, whet exactly did HE do. I don't care about his fiance or if he deleted his personal emails, that is his business. I think it is sad that people are so quick to demonize while all the while forgetting that we are all human and we all had issue. I heard him being compared to ...

  • Business groups, GOP express concerns regarding paid sick leave bill
    Guest
    If this bill passes AND the minimum wage bill passes, every business that only pays their employees minimum wage will incur approximately $1,000 more per employee in payroll costs. Some businesses will incur a little less, while others will incur more. It all depends on their location (LTD and Tri-Met taxes), what their Unemployment rate is (ranges from 1.5% to 5.4%) and any other local taxes that may in force. Just another way the Democrats in ...

  • 4 winners and losers in the Kitzhaber scandal
    Guest
    How can the democrats be losers when they now control the legislative and executive branches of the state? Oregon is now a one party state and the democrats own it, for better or for worse. They own the high taxes and business regulation that drive out jobs and businesses. They own one of the lowest high school graduation rates in the country. They own the crony-capitalis m of the green energy industry that has to be subsidized with taxpayer money ...

    Very true and worth considering. It is extremely frustrating that John Kitzhaber has been sent packing while Chris Christie and Vladimir Putin remain in power.

    Its not about their “rights.” It's about their duty as journalists. As Michael Davis' column points out, it's mighty egotistical of them to call for his resignation based mostly on the reporting of their archival Willamette Week, and a little bit of their own, and not allow any due process to go forward.YEs but Brown's flight etc. were precipitated by the Oregonian Editorial. No editorial, no flight.

    My favorite theory is that Kitz asked Brown why she came back because HE NEVER ACTUALLY ASKED HER TO COME BACK THAT WAS ALL AN ACT. #dundundun Brown's airplane flight, and her subsequent statement about their conversation, were the fatal moments for the governor, not the Oregonian editorial. Though the emails thing sealed the deal.

    The Oregonian had every right to print editorials about a governor caught in a corruption scandal. Most people are aware, editorials are opinions. Kitzhaber reaped what he sowed. If he was so innocent, why did he not fight for justice... which is worth fighting for.

    I'm all for public scrutiny and accountability. This is about process. Maybe you'd prefer to skip the whole voting thing too and just appoint the Big O's editorial board selections? Heck, if the Oregonuan can just get enough people in a frenzy, we can clear out the courts by having the Iregonian indict, try, convict and sentence the accused all within a convieient Internet speed. Good for our shortening attention spans.

    This is what's wrong with society. Let's redirect blame instead of being held accountable. The press didn't destroy this guy. He and his girlfriends greed did that all by themselves. And by the way. When you are the governor of a state you might be scrutinized and reported on and have your bad deeds publicly aired. You know. Cuz he's a public official.

    this is such a travesty. Thanjs for sharing Some of Davis' column. [blocked] Hughes also wrote an excellent opinion column on the 1/30 Kitzhaber press conference debacle. We're in trouble when we don't have the patience to wait for atleast an indictment.

    Don't cry for the death of journalism when it was the very papers that ENDORSED Kitz despite all of the concerns about corruption, his overseeing the waste of HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS on CoverOregon. Not to mention his incredibly lackluster performance during his third term. Yet he had the one redeeming quality. He was a Democrat and being a Democrat means never say you're sorry. Only we the Oregonians who care about integrity and ...
