As a Strip District retailer closes its doors, debate continues over impact of development | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

When a McDonald’s restaurant recently closed in the Strip District, it seemed to be more of a curiosity than anything else. But another closing in the storied Penn Avenue corridor is raising broader concerns about the impact of development in the neighborhood.

PachaMama Divine Connection at 1812 Penn Ave. shut its doors Jan. 11, only months after co-owner Fatima Lisa Pass-Arenas fretted that rising rents could force her out of business.

Ms. Pass-Arenas said she decided to close the clothing and accessories store after her landlord indicated the rent might increase by as much as $1,000 a month. Rather than pay more, she opted to call it quits.

SpaceX’s inflight abort test paves way to commercial human spaceflight | TheHill

A commercial space launch industry, with companies such as SpaceX and Boeing competing against one another, has every potential to lower the cost of space travel.

The commercial spaceflight company launched a Falcon 9 rocket with a crewed Dragon on top. About 90 seconds into the flight, the Falcon 9’s engines switched off. Detecting that an anomaly had taken place, the Crewed Dragon fired its Draco rocket engines, separating it from the Falcon 9. As the Falcon 9 broke apart in midflight, the crewed Dragon soared away in safety. The spacecraft eventually splashed down in the Atlantic Ocean using parachutes. NASA and SpaceX will spend the next several months examining data garnered by the flight.

While the possibility of an inflight abort is an extreme event, it is not a theoretical one. In October 2018, a crewed Soyuz launch suffered an unplanned inflight abort. After the booster failed, the Soyuz capsule broke away and eventually landed near the launch site with its crewmembers, Russian cosmonaut Alexsey Ovchinin and American astronaut Nick Hague, shaken but alive and well.

Downtown Greensburg Project prepares marketing push for city | TribLIVE.com

Greensburg wants to show off its good side, and the Downtown Greensburg Project is looking for public feedback on how to do that.

“We’re not the same old city we’ve been for a long time, we want more collaboration, we want a stronger city,” said Jessica Hickey, director of the Downtown Greensburg Project. “So we wanted to create a new brand to help move it along a little bit.”

DGP organizes events and promotes businesses in the city.

City council hired DGP last year at a rate of $1,250 a month to help market the city. Part of that work has been a major rebranding.

Hickey is in the early stages of that project. She’s collecting feedback from an online survey and public focus groups to learn how people see Greensburg, what they like about the city and what they don’t.

Feedback so far has included some complaints — parking is a perennial gripe — but the tone has been generally optimistic, Hickey said.

Britain has to solve its heating problem to meet its ambitious climate goals – CNN

London (CNN Business)The United Kingdom made history last year when it became the first major economy to commit to pumping no more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than it removes by 2050.

Dozens of countries have since followed its lead to achieve “net zero” emissions, and with three decades to go before the deadline, Britain’s progress provides a promising blueprint.
Its carbon emissions were 44% below 1990 levels in 2018, with renewable energy now accounting for 33% of its energy mix and coal contributing just over 5%. That is thanks in large part to its success with offshore wind and focus on nuclear energy.
