I share lots of myself on Instagram; hobbies, outings, moments, loved ones. But I don’t often share my political views. Friends who follow me on FB, or Twitter more recently, or you know... real life... know I am not shy to share my political opinion. For some reason though, the superficial nature of Instagram has often kept me from speaking out on this platform. Perhaps it’s bread of my own vanity. The ‘like’ seeking pressure this platform breads. Or perhaps, I simply choose to keep a more private and personal account of myself on IG. Regardless, I feel compelled in this moment that my views and opinions of the things unfolding before the United States must rise above my own insecurities or comforts. And so, I plead with you, if you follow me on this platform because we share similar interests, or because we knew each other sometime when, or maybe you just found some random photo of mine, PLEASE READ THE LINK IN MY PROFILE. The additional headlines I’ve posted as photoed can be found on each of the respective news organizations’ websites. #ImpeachDonaldTrump ///
Portland's Terminal 1 is gone and is now the north Pearl District - a primarily residential neighborhood of high-rise and low-rise apartments and condominiums. Perhaps Terminal 2 is next to disappear under the bulldozer to make way for a new MLB baseball stadium
Thought I would put the proposed site for a new Major League Baseball stadium in context, This photo of mine from October 15, 2017 includes a call out showing where the current Terminal 2 and the proposed stadium site are located on the Willamette River waterfront. This project if built would further extend the dramatic transformation of the area on the west side of the Willamette River below and down river (north) of the Fremont Bridge.
The Portland Diamond Project has announced that it has settled on a ballpark location for a proposed Major League Baseball expansion team in Portland, Ore.
In agreement with the Port of Portland, the project plans to develop a 45-acre property named Terminal 2, which is located just north of downtown Portland. The development team released ballpark renderings through a series of tweets. The design features a retractable roof, waterfront views of the Willamette River from the stadium and lots of restaurant seating in the outfield concourse (link to the Sports Illustrated article in comments).
