Re: “Kryean Kally: The Drag Queen

Née is feminine; the masculine is né.

Rather than mentee, the actual word is protegé.

Re: “Allen Suh: The chef

Great place. The corner store had a ridiculously good beer selection. I enjoyed my "sodas" outside waiting to get in and was rewarded with one of the most memorable dining experiences i've had in a while. Everyone I ordered was delicious and unique. Places like this make me wish I lived in the city.

Re: “Michelle Nunn: The political candidate

@ Kiteless: I hate to burst your bubble but I am neither related to nor do I even have a remotely close personnel relation with Dr. Rad. The first time I ever met him was at a Tea Party sponsored event "Meet the Candidates" in Pickens County. I was quite impressed with his candidness and forthright statements on his position in regards to Health Care, gun violence, womens rights and equality in the workplace, the deficit, the economy and unemployment. In the same regard, when I first heard of Michelle Nunn's entry into the mix, I requested information about her position in regards to these same issues. I am still waiting for a response. Apparently you have information about her position on these matters that is not being circulated in the general public. Perhaps you would like to tell us what her position is on these matters. As you seem to support her, you must know her position on these matters. Right?

Re: “Michelle Nunn: The political candidate

I am not a member of Dr. Rad's family, but one of Dr. Rad's MANY supporters. Dr. Rad attended the Moral Monday Georgia Planning Meeting last night, and, once again, showed that he is very much an advocate of Medicaid Expansion, etc. and a contributing member of the community, as well as a candidate for U. S. Senate. Dr. Rad's exciting advocacy style U. S. Senate candidacy is about to take a giant leap forward as the first Moral Monday (on Medicaid Expansion) occurs at the Georgia State Capitol on Monday, January 13th. I hope all who support Medicaid Expansion in Georgia, the Moral Monday-Georgia effort, and any and all of the Moral Monday theme issues will join us at the Capitol on January 13th and the following Mondays throughout the Winter. I also hope you will seriously consider supporting Dr. Rad for U.S. Senate (who, quite likely, will be the only Georgia U.S. Senate Candidate participating in Georgia Moral Mondays)!

Re: “Michelle Nunn: The political candidate

You can never figure out quite what Michell Nunn is advocating, other than can't-we-all-just-get-along. If she gets the Democratic nomination -- not assured, despite the "ignore the other candidates" (Dr. Rad) framing that the press has swallowed whole -- she still must convince Democratic voters that she is FOR the fundamentals that Democrats stand for, not just for whatever Republican Senators will agree to. If the top Federal race on the general election ballot doesn't draw the Democratic base to the polls, what will that mean for other Democratic candidates? "Centrist" means "I'm FOR whatever the opposition will agree to, so we can pass SOMEthing." Since the Republicans adopted the "whatever Obama is for, we'll oppose it" strategy five years ago, they've mocked the fantasy of "bipartisanship." Stand for something!

Re: “Michelle Nunn: The political candidate

Candidate Nunn has done nothing except avoid making her platform clear and concise. When pressed on her position on Healthcare, freedom of choice for women, pay equality in the work place, etc, instead of responding with an appropriate response of her position. She instead tries to talk about what she wants to talk about and avoid making a commitment. This is not the type of person that will do much for Democrats. She would be too busy trying to score points for herself to be concerned with the people of Georgia. Dr. Rad on the other hand, has made a clear and concise statement on many areas of concern for most citizens in Georgia. He is not afraid to state his position and welcomes all to question his position without reservation. He wants feedback from the citizens and wants to know what concerns them and address those issues. Nunn seems to be concerned with her "own" issues and could not be be bothered with what concerns the citizens..

Re: “Michelle Nunn: The political candidate

I think the question to Candidate Nunn, asking if she is sure that she is running as a Democrat, is interesting, and appropriate. There is no doubt, what so-ever that Branko "Dr. Rad" Radulovacki is running as a Democrat!! (The Democratic Primary on May 20th is for Democrats, and not Republicans.) www.DrRadFor Senate.com.

Re: “Michael Gamble: The architect

To "2014". I've known Mike and Lee Ann since 1987. You are so off-base with your comments that it is beyond ridiculous. Not only your comments about G + G, but your comments about the arch. profession as well. I've also been in that field since 1987. Your knee-jerking irresponsible comments are not appreciated. Nor are the uninformed "thumbs-up"s.

Re: “Aaron Williams: The Bitcoin baron

bitcoin has some serious problems that this article does not address. i understand the focus of the article is on mr. williams but if i had a startup selling unicorn farts i would expect some journalistic diligence into the validity of my product

to be brief, bitcoin is quasi anonymous because it relies on members of the mining network to process transactions. this is handled through the block chain, which is a ledger of all transactions. there is a limit set on the size of each block, or group of transactions, in order to prevent various negative effects. this block size limit means a theoretical maximum transaction rate of seven transactions per second, which is orders of magintude lower than actual payment processers. bitcoin simply can't compete with VISA right now. theoretically it would only cost about $5000 an hour to legally shut down bitcoin, by attaching marginally higher transaction fees to useless coin shuffle. that's absurd

however, there is lots of work being done to hack around these limitations and extend bitcoin's capabilities and thus lifespan. why? why not just create another altcoin from the ground up? there are already thousands of altcoins, mainly bitcoin derivatives. why try to inflate and extend a broken coin, rather than design bitcoin 2.0 from the ground up? cryptocurrencies are only as good as the rules/systems which define how they function, so why try to turn the prototype into the production model?

bitcoin is 'successful' in that it has attracted a ridiculous amount of hype, thus investment, thus there's a lot of money sitting on the table that bitcoin 2.0 would be walking away from. it's much easier to rent collect from this existing hype pool than to try to create a viable next step forward for cryptocoins. the end result is that bitcoin entheusiasts cynically cannibalize their own movement in an attempt to prove the validity of their product by using it to defraud people who don't understand it.

in the end, cryptocurrencies are contradictary. they cannot be 'crypto' and semi anonymous without being decentralized. they cannot be a useful and reliable method of payment without being centralized. and i don't see any members of this movement trying to push crypto forwards rather than staying back to hover over the sunk cost carrion of foolish opportunists

Re: “Michael Gamble: The architect

khs, are you somehow unfamiliar with the site? without a parking deck, there would be no way to accomodate the hotel guests.

and way to totally miss the point, 2014/she. next time the architects should definitely make sure that the right gender is photographed so no one is offended, right? i'm sure they'd be happy to change their work schedule to accomodate your biases.

Re: “Michael Gamble: The architect

You had me until the two story parking deck. Enough with the parking decks already. Is that the highest and best use of this land? Atlanta is flush (I'd say infested) with parking opportunities and building a new deck is the opposite of what's needed.

Re: “Michael Gamble: The architect

Mr Gamble, when Lee Ann and yourself give 'run-down front entrance...a facelift', please salvage the Clermont's sweet 'motor hotel' sign somehow. I know it probably doesn't fit your scheme, but don't allow that classic to end up wasted in a trash dump!
Congratulations on the project. -ashley, ga tech '96

Re: “Allen Suh: The chef

"John Lennon"- Wyatt has written about the Baton Supper Series on numerous accounts. Suh actually worked on the line with Chef Orkin, and he and owner Nicholas Stinson have never discounted the fact that Arigato and JCS could've ever survived without Baton's existence.
