The plan, buried in the Ohio House budget, would penalize Ohio universities that provide proof of residency documents to students who live on campus. Without such documentation, many students would not be able to comply with voter ID laws and would be forced to vote provisionally.
When I started measuring out our local grocery store, which I don’t think of as being that big, I was blown away by how much more space was parking lot rather than actual store. That was kind of a problem, because we were originally just going to model real cities, but we quickly realized there were way too many parking lots in the real world and that our game was going to be really boring if it was proportional in terms of parking lots.
In the 1990s and 2000s, 77% of housing demand was for large, single-family homes on grassy lots. But the previous generation’s wants don’t match the next generation’s:
“[Baby Boomers] will want to sell their homes, and they’re hoping there are people behind them to buy their homes,” says [Arthur C.] Nelson, director of the Metropolitan Research Center at the University of Utah. […]
A vast majority of today’s households with children still want such houses, Nelson says. But about a quarter of them want something else, like condos and urban townhouses. That demand “used to be almost zero percent, and if it’s now 25 percent,” Nelson says, “that’s a small share of the market but a huge shift in the market.” And this is half of the reason why many baby boomers may not find buyers for their homes.
