Dear william wingo,
Thank you very much for applying to attend TEDxMidAtlantic.
We sincerely appreciate your interest in the event. We have received far more applications than we are able to approve due to the capacity of our venue. Unfortunately, we were not able to approve your application to attend this first event. This is not any reflection on you but is simply a product the large number of applicants we received, the extraordinary nature of the backgrounds of all of the applicants, and our desire to create a diverse, balanced event. We simply could not accommodate everyone.
The good news? We are already planning next year's event. Get your application in early, or you might even consider being part of our volunteer planning team! Being a TEDxMidAtlantic volunteer is a great way to get plugged into the community and to guarantee your spot at the event.
And there's more good news. A live stream of TEDxMidAtlantic will be available on our website. Feel free to watch the event live and share the link with others.
Even better, all TEDxMidAtlantic presentation videos will be made available online in the weeks after the event, so you can see (and share) all the talks.
So, while we are sorry you will not be able to attend this first event, we welcome you to the TEDxMidAtlantic community and look forward to seeing you at future events.
Lastly, we do intend to fill every seat at this event. If we learn in the next few days that any seats do become free, we will notify applicants on an as-available basis. Stay tuned.
Thanks again for your interest in TEDxMidAtlantic and "Ideas Worth Spreading."

Have Faith in Baltimore!

Praise God!In Response to Mondays, June 1st - "Shootings near Camden Yards" in the Opinion section of the Sun and to address the hysteria surrounding the socalled "crime wave" going on in Baltimore's downtown, I say, “Where is your Faith in God and in our beloved city? Or better still “Don’t believe the hype about Balimore being under attack!Baltimore is a wonderful city and it’s about time that the citizens who worship, work, and live in Baltimore stand for her, and all the good things that we experience everyday!Crime is crime wherever it happens and Baltimore is no different then any other city in the world.As a matter of fact in the Jonestown area (828 E. Baltimore St.) where we have worked for over 10 years publishing our magazine a monthly of church events and local news, we have had some petty crimes and disturbances, as we are down the street from the “Power Plant Live Zone, but that what you would expect form time to time. Also, to address the report of the 1840’s Ballroom on Front St., we have been blessed by the owner who has provided space to have church services on Sunday mornings from 9AM – 12Noon. In canvassing the neighborhood and going throughout the community from Front St on the west to Central Ave on the east and everything in between Lombard and Fayette Sts on Saturdays and during the week we have done so without any fear or apprehension!Baltimore has taken a bad rap, and I’m not sure if it’s political against the Mayor or the Police Commissioner but the citizens who know and love Baltimore have to establish that there is more Good in Baltimore than meets the "eye of the media" or that we have been given credit.To all the Howard Stern’s and the other nay sayers, this is what I say, “Get a grip!”Lets work with those who are helping to make a difference in the area such as: Helping Up Mission and the various men and women homeless shelters, etc, etc, etc.If it’s broke, lets fix it, rather then lock them up, lets prop them up, rather than leave the city that bleeds, let us (the citizens of Baltimore)help make it be the city leads!

Maryland Daily Record

Maryland Daily Record 5-22-09
Originally, the BDC selected a partnership between Bethesda-based Magnum and New City Partners, a Pigtown-based developer and home-rehabber, to remake Garrison’s properties. But that partnership split in October, Smith said, when it became clear that New City did not have the finances to contribute to the project. “I was led to believe they were a company that was established, but it turned out they had existed for a short time,” he said. In November, Magnum submitted an unsolicited proposal for the site, which included about 10,000 square feet of mixed-use buildout, including first-floor retail, six upper-floor apartments and an extension of the buildings’ rear side to include a carriage house with more residential units and two parking decks with spots for 30 cars.
The tentative name for the project is Village Mews. New City officials did not return calls seeking comment. Now, Smith said, he has two restaurants, one of them “sit-down Italian style” and the other run by a Federal Hill restaurateur, vying for space on the ground floor, and will probably have a lease signed before he starts the $1 million construction project. When it’s done, Smith said Washington Boulevard will be a “real destination place.”
Bethesda-based developer Marc Smith Washington Boulevard in Pigtown commenting:
“We’ve really held back on the lease, turned down all the churches, the pawn shops and crap like that,” he said. “I think we’re at the crossroads there in Pigtown. We lived through the initial boom of investors coming in. We’ve had a lot of higher-income people come into the community, and to capture that kind of inertia is very important. Every time a property gets boarded up, the neighborhood sort of falls back a little bit.”

"My worry is that in our exurban-super-individualistic-iPod-listening-video-game-playing culture, we have lost the local fabric of self-synchronization, and although the spirit may be there to help each other, the mechanisms to make that spirit effective in practice are lacking. The private sector has not done any better"

try to develop this model for POWER!

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan is a nationwide effort to create jobs, jumpstart growth and transform our economy for the 21st century. Across the country, this plan will help businesses create jobs and families afford their bills while laying a foundation for future economic growth in key areas like health care, clean energy, education and a 21st century infrastructure. In Maryland, this plan will deliver immediate, tangible impacts, including:
Creating or saving 70,000 jobs over the next two years. Jobs created will be in a range of industries from clean energy to health care, with over 90% in the private sector. [Source: White House Estimate based on Romer and Bernstein, "The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan." January 9, 2009.]
Providing a making work pay tax cut of up to $1,000 for 2,210,000 workers and their families. The plan will make a down payment on the President’s Making Work Pay tax cut for 95% of workers and their families, designed to pay out immediately into workers’ paychecks. [Source: White House Estimate based on IRS Statistics of Income]
Making 53,000 families eligible for a new American Opportunity Tax Credit to make college affordable. By creating a new $2,500 partially refundable tax credit for four years of college, this plan will give 3.8 million families nationwide – and 53,000 families in Maryland – new assistance to put college within their reach. [Source: Center on Budget and Policy Priorities analysis of U.S. Census data]
Offering an additional $100 per month in unemployment insurance benefits to 242,000 workers in Maryland who have lost their jobs in this recession, and providing extended unemployment benefits to an additional 40,000 laid-off workers. [Source: National Employment Law Project]
Providing funding sufficient to modernize at least 138 schools in Maryland so our children have the labs, classrooms and libraries they need to compete in the 21st century economy. [Source: White House Estimate]
In addition to this immediate assistance for Maryland, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan will help transform our economy by:
Doubling renewable energy generating capacity over three years, creating enough renewable energy to power 6 million American homes.
Computerizing every American’s health record in five years, reducing medical errors and saving billions of dollars in health care costs.
Launching the most ambitious school modernization program on record, sufficient to upgrade 10,000 schools.
Enacting the largest investment increase in our nation’s roads, bridges and mass transit systems since the creation of the national highway system in the 1950s.
