Cool Link of the Day: Before and After Worldwide

Similar to the Before and After posts of how Columbus has been changing, the link below from the site Urb-I, has hundreds of before and after photos of streetscape change in a host of world cities. Columbus itself is not included, but perhaps that can be changed as the site allows anyone to submit images.

Cool Link of the Day: Living Wage Calculator Map

Interested in knowing how the minimum wage of an area compares to a living wage? Take a look at the map. You can go down to county and metro level. Columbus does well compared to most of the nation, but no minimum wage is enough in any area to equal a local living wage.

New Updates

I have updated several of the Pages, including Columbus Development, the Historic Building Database and the November Weather pages. I have also added a few new cool links dealing with Ohio’s history where you can look at historic buildings for every county and city, including Columbus.
