thursday news round-up

The Boston Convention Center will be expanded. Huzzah. I guess when you're in an arms race you can't back down. Or, to put it more bluntly: when you're in a hole, keep digging. I haven't come across an article that assesses the impact of the Convention Center. Is it net positive? What happens to the Hynes Convention Center?

MGM will most likely get to build a casino in Springfield. It will not save the city.

Continued bad news in Egypt, Syria, Iraq. Am I leaving some country out? And, don't be a construction worker in Dubai or Qatar.

The World Cup is starting in Brazil. I predict that things will go relatively smoothly.

I wonder if masonry construction will make a comeback.
