Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I know it was a typo, Leit, I think Jesse meant that Floater is a Greek band.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

@Todd apparently you haven't used a smart phone before. Have anything relevant to the argument at hand? I thought not.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I don't even know what a greet band is. They play inside the entrance to Walmart?

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I had the same experience at the Multnomah Whiskey Library. And I'm their target demographic! If anyone's considering it, just head to the Uptown Billiards Club - that place is awesome, and has none of the artificial ridiculousness.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

Floater is a greet band, Ned. And though you disagree, it's no reason to be so rude and completely discredit yourself at the same time.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

@Ned Clearly you know nothing of Floater or it's Floydian influences. I'm sorry you feel so stereotyped as a flannel wearing hipster that you must dish it out on someone else. This is why I don't bother with the low brow Mercury.

Re: “Downtown Destination Drunks

I have a soft spot for Shanghai Tunnel. That tiny smoking patio that opens into the weird upstairs part that doesn't even have taps is pretty nice in the summer, and the dark, gloomy basement can be a sanctuary from the overflowing Bro triangle. At least until about 8pm, when it starts to get receive that overflow. The staff is friendly, happy hour lasts til 7 and is dirt cheap for well drinks, and the food is decent.

Did no one go check out the renovated Tube? I'm curious what it's like now.

Thanks for all the write-ups. I'm always blank when trying to figure out somewhere to go downtown and there are a lot of spots I just forget exist.

A++ for refusing to play Multnomah Whiskey Library's game, Ned.

Re: “Crowdsourcing the Future

Really interesting Robert, thanks​!​

I think that you would be really interested in some recent research that I have come across explaining crowds, open innovation, and citizen science.​ ​In particular I feel you may find these two emerging pieces of research very relevant:

- The Theory of Crowd Capital
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2193115

- The Contours of Crowd Capability
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2324637

And you may also enjoy this blog about the same too:

Powerful stuff, no?

Re: “Jazzercise or Zumba: Which Is Right for YOU?

I tried a Zumba class, and afterwards went right back to my Jazzercise class. I started Jazzercise in my 30's and 25 years later I am still in great shape because of it. Jazzercise is the only 1 hour "total body" workout. Not to bash Zumba--it is a good one hour dance aerobic work-out. Jazzercise incorporates weights, bands--balls and floor exercise, to work the problem areas in the last 20 minutes of class, to keep us strong and balanced. It's also a great way to make new friends.

Re: “Jazzercise or Zumba: Which Is Right for YOU?

Jazzercise routines are challenging and fun. I am in the best shape of my life. My muscles and bones are stronger, my posture is better, I'm stronger. The instructors demonstrate the correct positions to achieve the maximum benefit from every move from every routine. I crave the workout and challenge myself to do better every time. I am 70 and look and feel better than I have in earlier years.

Re: “Jazzercise or Zumba: Which Is Right for YOU?

I think both are great cardio but Jazzercise is a better over all workout because of the strength resistance training and stretching. That being said with either you get out of it what you put into it

Re: “Jazzercise or Zumba: Which Is Right for YOU?

I am a certified Jazzercise instructor and have been for over 5 years. Jazzercise is a program that has been around through the years and continuously improves their image and products. All if their instructors have to certified, take written physiology exams, are CPR certified and are yearly monitored to ensure that all instructors lead a safe and effective class. It has been proven that over the years, Zumba can be damaging to the knees and with their instructors not properly trained or required to follow a well choreographed routines, it makes this all more possible. Jazzercise brings new routines with the most current music (about 150 new routines per year). So if you have ever taken a bad class , try a new instructor!!

Re: “Jazzercise or Zumba: Which Is Right for YOU?

I have to work extra hard to get a workout at Jazzercise and they do the same songs (or at least one instructor does) so I'm usually bored out of my mind after a class or two. Zumba keeps my heart rate up the whole hour which means I probably burn more calories. I can do weight training in my other classes.
