RIP Elijah Cummings 

The Congressman from Baltimore was a larger-than-life presence and consummate legislator who gave many Americans hope and inspiration. 

 

In non-baseball sports news, 

...Wizard Bradley Beal signed a 2-year extension that lines him up for the biggest NBA contract ever and removes a key trade piece from the market. The Caps have a Cutest Fan Ever. And if you aren’t hearing much about the Washington Football Team, so much the better.

 

Six months and still on beat

It’s been six months since noise complaints in Shaw spurred go-go to transform from party to protest music. Now, the struggle is evolving: advocates won their first round, and are pushing for public music education, housing and heritage. 

 

“The first big group to service the micromobility needs of a big city together”

Pittsburgh figured out a way to coordinate several non-car mobility options through a single app and “mobility hotspots” near public transit nodes.

 

“Urban lifestyles* are about to get more expensive”

Maybe you needn’t worry about consolidating apps—maybe some of them are on the way out. Companies like WeWork and Uber are bleeding cash to maintain market position and other app startups like Wag have never made a profit. Get ready for platform economy prices to go up.
