Thanks to Southport
Corridor News & Events we're able to see a pictorial update on the
progress of Lakeview's Lincoln Hub at the intersection of Lincoln, Wellington,
and Southport Avenues. Construction began in April and it looks like it will be
completed any day now. The project's purpose is to create a people-friendly
space to slow down traffic for pedestrians and invite them to sit and linger. Traffic due to its construction has been a great frustration to many in the neighborhood so I'm sure, whether or not they agree with the hub's aesthetic, it will be a relief when it's completed.

Cleaning the ceiling fan blades is not difficult if you
don’t mind a lot of dust and dirt getting all over the rest of the room. An
easier and cleaner way is using an old pillowcase. Simply place the pillow case
over the blades one at a time. Pull off taking all the dust and dirt with it.
For grease covered blades on kitchen fans spray down with all-purpose cleaner
like Formula 409® or
Then put the pillow case on and wipe off all the grease and grime.
Wad up and attach old pantyhose to a yardstick or coat
hanger with a rubber band. Use this tool to catch cobwebs and dust in hard to
reach places. Dust ceiling corners and molding. Gets behind refrigerators,
stoves and cabinets. Spray with Formula 409 for greasy crevices.
Slip a pair of old socks on over your hands. Spray lightly
with window cleaner. Dust your blinds. For delicate dusting like chandeliers,
glass knickknacks or light fixtures use old fashioned cotton gloves spayed with
window cleaner. For optimal light always keeps bulbs dusted. Make sure bulbs
are cool. Hot bulbs will shatter if touched with wet cleaner.
Baby wipes are great for cleaning the computer keyboard.
Make sure you turn off the computer first. Wipe off with paper towel.
softener and fabric softener sheets are natural dust repellants. Use
the sheets to dust electronic screens and televisions. It will remove the dust
and repel new dust for a few days. Mix a solution of 1 part fabric softener to
4 parts water. Put in a spray bottle and use with a microfiber cloth. Finish by
polishing with a dry cloth. This solution is great for glass tables, shower
doors and other hard surfaces.

It was announced this morning that the worldwide sales of smartphones are expected to be reduced by over half from last year. This is due to saturation in the Chinese market and so shipments are expected to decline. While the Chinese market is the largest in the world, it's no longer considered an emerging market like it once was.
So why am I telling you all about this?
I actually wanted to talk about turning off from the screens, smartphones, pads and technology in general while still staying connected. And so I present you with the Light Phone. It's an extremely basic phone, either answering or making phone calls. That's it. The only bells and whistles are that the phone is simple.
The phone allows you to stay connected without being distracted. It's designed by an artist and engineer with 10 years experience in designing mobile phones. The phone has a spot for the SIM card to be input. It offers quick dial and can also be used as a flashlight. It's about the size of a credit card and best thing is that is lasts for 20 days on a single charge.
The phone costs $100 and comes with 500 pre-paid minutes. You can use a USB to charge the phone. And most likely it's best feature, the phone should not need to be replaced. Like I said earlier. This is a basic phone with enough technology for you to make and receive calls. Imagine having an actual dinner with someone and not taking pictures of your food or drinks.
According to the designers, "We are not against tech at all (clearly we joined an incubator and have a passion for this) but we think that maybe we need to put the human first in tech again and think about what kind of tech will make our lives better in the long term."

So happy to report that the breaking
news of the South
Loop Metra train derailment late on Tuesday, 5/19, night was a
"relatively minor event" where no one was injured when the train
remained upright as it slowly derailed over a "low spot" in the
track. Therefore I'll bring you
relatively lighthearted news that the small New York-based seafood chain, Luke's
Lobster, has opened its first Chicago location at 134 N. LaSalle St.
this week. Never been to a New England style seafood shack? Then check this
place out to experience what all the hype is about.
Every year the Lincoln Park Chamber of
Commerce honors certain businesses for their contributions to the neighborhood

won for Excellence in Arts and Culture,
Four Corners Tavern Group (multiple locations) won Hospitality Business

Service Provider of the Year, Vanille Patisserie (2108 N. Clark) was awarded
Retail Business of the Year, and Geja's Café (340 W. Armitage) was recognized

This Saturday, 5/23, marks the
beginning of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative (4642 N. Western Ave.) Annual $20 Cash 'N Carry Print Sale. The Collaborative will be relocating

I’ve seen an awful lot of kale in many forms lately in the
grocery stores. I decided to check it out. Turns out kale is a nutritional
powerhouse. It is VERY high in beta carotene,
calcium, and vitamins, A, C, and K.
It is also a good source of sulforaphane,
a potent anti-cancer fighter. Also lutein, great for the eyes. It is also a
good source of fiber.
Kale comes in many varieties. Curly kale works best dried
for chips. When you clean curly kale for chips make sure to remove all tough
stems and ribs. Leaf part only. Rub with olive oil and sliced garlic. Sprinkle
with coarse black pepper and kosher salt. Bake at 425° for fifteen minutes.
Flat leaved kale is best for sautéing. Use a black kale such
as Lacinato. Cut off stems and cut into two inch pieces. Heat olive oil in a
large sauté pan. Cook three smashed garlic cloves with a pinch of salt (or to
taste) till garlic is golden and aromatic, then remove. Add kale leaves and
stir to coat with oil. Add ¼ c chicken broth, cover and cook 2-3 minutes. Remove
cover and check for doneness. Let liquid evaporate, finish with a splash of
sherry vinegar if desired.
Baby kale is more tender and is better for eating raw. Add
to pasta salad or fresh greens mix. If you are adding to a salad that’s already
dressed like pasta or quinoa make sure you give the kale time to wilt a bit in
the salad. It will be more flavorful and tender.
Curly or really any type of kale can add fiber and nutrition
to any smoothie or fresh juice squeeze. Just make sure you use the leaf only!
Remove tough stems and ribs.
I hope I’ve given you a few ideas to incorporate this
powerhouse green into your diet.

Last week Facebook launched a new feature called Instant Articles. Since users have shown that they like to share articles they read, Facebook has been looking for a solution where users can share articles and download those same articles much faster. For those of us who use FlipBoard, it's similar to this viewing experience in terms of speed and articles of interest to you.
Instant Articles is definitely more for the publisher of content. Some of the features include high-resolution photo zoom in, auto-play video, in-line commenting on portions of an article, listening to audio captions and even interactive map exploration. According to Facebook's CPO Chris Cox, "Fundamentally, this is a tool that enables publishers to provide a better experience for their readers on Facebook. Instant Articles lets them deliver fast, interactive articles while maintaining control of their content and business models."
At this point, Facebook has partnered with The New York Times, National Geographic, BuzzFeed, NBC, The Atlantic, The Guardian, BBC News, Spiegel and Bild. For users, know that your activity while using Instant Articles on Facebook will be measured by these partners. The goal at this point is to test this new service, which is only available on iPhone at this point, and make sure that mobile journalism is more engaging for readership.
