Why Cleveland is the Home of Rock and Roll

Why Cleveland is the Home of Rock and Roll

Rock and RollCleveland has long been known as the birthplace of Rock and Roll. While many historic events took place in this location, people speculate that these happenings haven’t happened by chance.

 

The history of rock started back in the early 1950s when a radio disc jockey named Alan Freed started his radio show on WJW in Cleveland. It was gaining popularity because of the kind of music he was playing for his white listeners.

 

White folks were listening to the likes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, African Americans were listening to rhythm and blues, which was referred to as “race music.”

 

When Freed and the owner of the Record Rendezvous record store, Leo Mintz, became good friends, Ultimately, this friendship resulted in an extensive cooperation of merging the efforts and benefiting from each other.

 

Mintz convinced Freed to start playing this music on his radio show. They had to change the genre to “rock ‘n’ roll”. The term was borrowed from old blues tunes and means “to fornicate.”

 

The teenage generation, unlike middle aged-people, positively reacted to the new genre. It evoked the spirit of rebellion and gradually revolutionized the music history.

 

Further, Cleveland became the place where most of the musical prominent events took place. Elvis Presley played his very first concert in Cleveland at Brooklyn High School. In 1966, The Beatles played a concert inside Cleveland’s iconic Public Hall.

 

Additionally, in 1970ies Cleveland started broadcasting WMMS-FM local radio station. Most of the DJs played mainly what they wanted.  Thanks to WMMS, many artists and bands, like Rush, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie and Fleetwood Mac gained popularity.

 

Finally, Cleveland hosts The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The hall features the evolution of this musical and cultural phenomenon through more than 50 exhibits.

Akron’s Residents Participate in Recreation Programming Through Survey

Akron’s Residents Participate in Recreation Programming Through Survey

Akron's recreational programming

The Akron ’s parks need the help from its residents. That’s why the city is asking residents to give input through an online survey on Akron’s parks to make improvements.

 

The city asks residents to share their knowledge about recreational amenities, as well as their interests and needs. That will help to develop a strategic plan to improve the community, as well as recreational programming.

 

The survey takes only 5-7 minutes to fill in. And most importantly, it’s anonymous.

 

Mayor Dan Horrigan says that public spaces and recreation are sorts of stimulation for neighborhood development.

 

Horrigan is proud of the recreation service that the city provides.

 

Yet, his goal is to evaluate or change the way they provide services and modernize it.

 

The shortest way to is to ask the citizens what they need from the city government. Asking citizens for their opinion is a way to enhance public engagement.

 

Survey reveals the things that need to be added or improved. Moreover, it finds out how much citizens value existing offerings.

 

The question is how to attract new park users. To do that one should know what people enjoy so that the city can better serve them.

 

Recreation Bureau Manager encouraged Akron residents to use their services and to speak up their mind.

 

There are so-called ‘’friend’s groups’’ near each Akron park. They help to keep the parks clean and inviting.

 

There is a partnership between the city and Friends of the Metro Parks. Is there a better way of succeeding than to gather people for the same goal?

 

For better results, the city came up with a study that includes 161 Akron parks. It covers 3804 acres.

 

There is no age discrimination for Akron’s residents.  11 Akron community centers, as well as Balch Street fitness center is for the use of the resident of any age group.

 

Drive Up: The New Pick-Up Option Target is Brining to Ohio

Drive Up: The New Pick-Up Option Target is Brining to Ohio

Target has some great news for Ohioans! This week, the company announced that they will be expanding their “Drive Up” service in 5 states, one of which is Ohio.

 

The “Drive Up” service gives customers the option to place an order online or on the Target app and then pick it up outside one of the stores. Customers in Cleveland, Columbus, and many other cities can now get whatever they need while remaining in their vehicle.

 

TargetIt’s very quick and easy! You place your order on the Target app, choose the location that you want, then once you get there all you do is wait in your car by the store. The app will notify you when your order will be ready for pickup so you don’t have to wait.

 

Once you are ready to head to the store, you choose the “I’m on the Way” button to inform the employees that you will be there soon. When you arrive at your designated store, you park in one of the “Drive Up” parking spots and wait for the employee to come out.

 

In a matter of a few minutes, the employee will bring out your order and load it in your vehicle and you’re ready to get on with your day! Quick and easy right?

 

Not every single item in stores will have the “Drive Up” service option. However, the majority will. Worst case scenario, you can also choose the store pick-up option which is just as fast.

 

You will also have to pay for any item when you purchase it with the “Drive Up” option. You cannot pay in store or the employee, it should be done on the app. Otherwise, it will not let your order go through.

 

The first city to get this new service in Ohio is Columbus and the next will be Cleveland. The other cities have not been determined or announced by Target.

 

An Attempted Terror Attack Has Been Prevented in Downtown Cleveland

An Attempted Terror Attack Has Been Prevented in Downtown Cleveland

A man from Maple Heights plotted to set off a bomb at the 4th of July fireworks celebration in downtown Cleveland to “strike at the values at the very core of our nation,” according to the officials.

 

Demetrius N. Pitts, 48, expressed a desire to join al Qaeda and kill U.S. citizens — including military personnel and their families. He told the undercover agent of his plot to conduct a July 4 attack on Voinovich Park, where the fireworks are set off each year, authorities said Monday during a news conference announcing Pitts’ arrest.

 

“Just last week, this defendant was walking around downtown Cleveland conducting reconnaissance on what he believed was a large-scale attack,” U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio Justin Herdman said. “He looked for a place to park a van full of explosives.”

 

Cleveland terror attackThe FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Pitts on Sunday afternoon. He will appear later Monday in federal court, Herdman said. Pitts faces a maximum of 20 years in federal prison if he is convicted, Herdman said.

 

Pitts is a U.S. citizen and Philadelphia native, but he became radicalized and is also known by the names Abdur Raheem Rafeeq and Salah ad-Deem Osama Waleed.

 

Pitts met the undercover agent June 22 in Walton Hills. During the meeting he told the undercover agent of his desire to conduct a terrorist attack during the Fourth of July celebration in downtown Cleveland, authorities said. “What would hit them at their core?” Those were his words told to the undercover agent, according to the affidavit. “Blow up in the, have a bomb blow up the Fourth of July parade.”

 

Stephen Anthony, FBI Special Agent in Charge,  declined to say during the news conference if Pitts had access to, or can make, an explosive. But Pitts had the “desire and intent” to conduct the attack, Anthony said.

 

The attack was planned to be at Voinovich Park. He was also pleased the location is near the U.S. Coast Guard station and the Anthony J. Celebrezze Federal Building, the affidavit says.

 

Pitts told the undercover agent he planned to travel to downtown Cleveland to conduct reconnaissance on the area. The undercover agent texted Pitts on June 22 and indicated al Qaeda “brothers” would provide him a bus pass and a cellphone. A confidential source then met Pitts on July 25 in Maple Heights and gave him the items, authorities said.

 

Pitts texted the undercover agent the following day to say he’d completed his reconnaissance, and that he wanted to “destroy the government,” the affidavit says. He subsequently met with the confidential source to the return the cell phone, so its content could be given to al Qaeda “brothers,” the affidavit says.

 

Pitts met the undercover agent for a final time on Sunday. He explained his plan to travel back to his hometown of Philadelphia, so he could conduct reconnaissance for a future attack there, the affidavit says. The undercover agent reminded Pitts that people would die in a potential terrorist attack, but Pitts responded by saying he did not care and had no regrets, the affidavit says.

 

Pitts has an extensive criminal history, including prior convictions for felonious assault, domestic violence and carrying concealed weapons, Anthony said.

 

There is no approved information about the Pitt’s home investigation.

 

Police Chief Calvin Williams said the Cleveland police department will have additional police officers on duty, as is standard for all holiday celebrations or large events. Officers on duty will have a heightened sense of vigilance, Williams said, but he also asked residents to report any suspicious activity.

 

Pay extra attention to people around you and be safe. Happy 4th of July!

 

Kent State University Earned a Talented Architectural Student

Kent State University Earned a Talented Architectural Student

A student at Kent State University in Ohio is incredibly talented with the models of stadiums that he creates.

 

David Resnik is a 36-year-old architect student who creates models of stadiums as a hobby.

 

Resnik used to work in sales and was not happy with his job. 3 years ago, his brother suggested he start building model stadiums as a hobby, which changed everything.

 

In his teen years, he used to build stadium models just because of the love he had for it. In 1995, he was featured in a “Plain Dealer” story with Jacobs Field.

 

One of Resnik’s friends who also happened to know Bill Willoughby, dean of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Kent State University, contacted Willoughby to tell him about Resnik’s work.

 

Willoughby was impressed and liked all the designs Resnik had created. He tried to guess what type of programs Resnik had used to create the models, however, Resnik had no clue of what the program names were.

 

Willoughby came to the realization that Resnik creates his models all by hand, which is why he is so talented. His models are extremely detailed and look very realistic.

 

He includes everything in his designs. Buildings, greenery, sidewalks, etc. Even inside the stadiums or the buildings, he includes the small designs.

 

He sometimes uses Google Maps to get images of the buildings and will work with PhotoShop as well. He cuts every single piece a few times until he gets the size he wants, then uses a double-sided tape to put everything together.

 

He even includes lights in his designs! The lights are battery-operated and he uses a small switch to turn them on when he wants to.

 

For one of the fields he had created, he spent about 300 to 400 hours working on it.

 

Some of his field designs were donated to charity. His latest design on NC Park in Pittsburgh will also be donated to charity.

 

As a kid, this hobby started with building other things like airplane models with Legos or Construx. This has been his hobby since the age of 5. He’s a natural!

 

Another interest that sparked his hobby was his love of baseball. Jacobs Field led him to build things even more detailed than ever.

 

It all started with “some scissors and some cardboard and some glue,” he says. And just like that, a legendary architect was made.
