30 years of cooling (to 1980 or so) then 30 years warming They use the data on the warming half of one cycle, and call it "long term". They need 50 cycles, not one half of one cycle ... dishonest arses. They know damn well they start at the end of a long cooling period, yet don't account for it, and usual only a straight line linear regression for their argument, which hides the last 18 years…

"The rest of Taylor’s article is just whitewash intended to distract readers from these facts." So these guys are mind readers, not scientists? They can read his intent? Or they are using personal attacks when they don't have facts on their side? I think the U of I boyz are the ones spinning here. Taylor notes this short time range ... readings from 1979 are not "long term" when it…

Al Gore is an idiot. There's no denying that. For the record, I bet Taylor understands the data just fine. That's how he knows where to cherry-pick.

For one, he's not explaining to the reader that there's a difference between polar ice cap extent and polar ice cap volume. People monitoring global warming are less concerned with polar ice extent than they are with the total amount of ice. Take a peek at the declining volume in the Arctic: "April 2015 volume was 26% below the maximum April ice volume in 1979 and 13% below the 1979-2014…

Concerts in the Plaza start TODAY in Downtown Quincy

1 year ago by

they will be held at the First Mid-Illinois Bank Plaza on Maine Street, next to St. Boniface Church

The Historic Quincy Business District is pleased to announce that they will be sponsoring the Concerts in the Plaza Series starting TODAY! Concerts on the Plaza will take place each Thursday starting next week through the end of June. They will be held at the First Mid-Illinois Bank Plaza on Maine Street, next to St. Boniface Church.

 

The Historic Quincy Business District has been contemplating the concerts for a few years now. In talking to people the concerts in the plaza are a frequent topic. Many people remember the concerts that used to take place there, and we are excited to be bringing them back. The concerts will be from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM each Thursday and feature various performers from the community. This year's lineup will be:

            May 22 - Rodney Hart

            May 29 - Quincy Symphony Orchestra Quartet

            June 5 - Liz Bentley

            June 12 - Vancil Performing Arts Center

            June 19 - Cheryl Kaiser School of Dance

            June 26 - Rodney Hart & Paul Wood

 

In addition to the acts on stage, the Historic Quincy Business District has arranged for food trucks to be associated with the concert series. The organization has confirmed that four food trucks (The Butcher Block, The Quick Course, Hank's Curbside Canteen, and Hotdogs-R-Us) will be in attendance to serve patrons that are attending the concerts. We feel that having these food vendors all in one spot and providing a great variety will enhance the experience for concert goers. 

            

The concerts are sponsored by the Historic Quincy Business District and the First Mid-Illinois Bank. We are so thankful to have the bank's support as we bring back this concert series. From the minute we approached them they have been involved and working with us to make this happen. They are a wonderful community partner and we are thrilled to have them downtown.
