Report: Streetcar boosting regional access to jobs


A report by Access Across America: Transit ranks Cincinnati first among cities with the greatest increase in job accessibility by transit — and local experts believe that’s thanks in part to the introduction last year of the Cincinnati Bell Connector streetcar.

General rankings for job accessibility by transit remained unchanged from the previous year, according to research published by the University of Minnesota, but new data comparing changes within each of the 49 largest U.S. metros over one year helped data analysts identify Cincinnati and Charlotte (with increases of 11.23 percent and 11.02 percent, respectively) as growth leaders in that segment.

The top 10 cities with the greatest increases in job accessibility by transit are as follows. (Click links for map view):

1.     Cincinnati (+ 11.23%)
2.     Charlotte (+ 11.02%)

3.     Orlando (+ 10.83%)
4.     Seattle (+ 10.80%)
5.     Providence (+ 10.65%)
6.     Phoenix (+ 7.51%)
7.     Riverside (+ 6.59%)
8.     Milwaukee (+ 6.53%)
9.     Hartford (+ 6.44%)

Cincinnati has 19th-century and Art Deco architecture, historic breweries and European-style neighborhoods. But we're also experiencing a cultural revival, with buzzy storefronts, boutique hotels, standout restaurants and hip bars cropping up all over the city.

Nation's burgers a cut above the rest


Even though most every restaurant menu seems to include a burger, it's hard to come by a true burger joint these days. Thrillist rounded up its top 31 burgers, and Nation's signature burger landed it on this list.

The Nation is a six-ounce Avril Bleh brisket patty topped with smoked cheddar, onion strings, horseradish aioli and whiskey BBQ sauce on a toasted challah bun. Yum.

The Golden Lamb: Ohio's oldest restaurant


When it's time to try out a new restaurant, we're used to reading Yelp and Facebook reviews, but the longevity of a place says something too. Delish rounded up the oldest restaurant in each state — and some of these eateries have been open for centuries, including Ohio's.

Just north of Cincinnati is Lebanon, home to the oldest continuously operating hotel and restaurant in the state, The Golden Lamb. Open since 1803, it's seen its fair share of famous folks, including 12 U.S. presidents and author and abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Located in the heart of downtown Lebanon, The Golden Lamb's signature fried chicken has stood the test of time and is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. Plus, it's rumored that the hotel is haunted by at least three ghosts.

Local startup shoots for the stars in data analysis


Astronomer, a CincyTech seed fund company, is working to give data analysts some of their time back. The two-year-old local startup has already raised $5.5 million in funding from Silicon Valley accelerators AngelPad and 500 Startups, as well as venture capital firm Frontline Ventures.

The startup helps companies build automated data pipelines, which are programs that gather data from various sources and collect it in central databases for analysis. This means that data analysts can spend less time manually entering data into spreadsheets and more time finding trends within the data.

Astronomer's goal is to make data tasks easier for non-tech companies. Its platform comes in two tiers — the base tier simplifies the pipeline process to selecting source and destination applications from a list of built-in integrations. Pricing is structured simply, starting at free to use and gradually scaling with the number of data events per month.

Its software has sold well in the non-tech sector, and companies like Roadtrippers, Everything But The House and CVG are already customers.

Cincinnati ranked fourth healthiest city in the U.S.


According to data compiled by Healthgrades Inc., Cincinnati is the fourth healthiest city in the country. It came in just behind the Twin Cities, Denver and Sacramento, and just head of Portland, Baltimore and Milwaukee.


Cincinnati ranks very high in access to high-quality hospitals, and it received grades near the national average for the overall health of its population and the ratio of doctors to the population, but fell short in the risky behaviors ranking.

Healthgrades’ new index is designed to help consumers make healthcare choices in their market. It was created by combining information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System 2015 survey, the 2015 Association of American Medical Colleges Report and the Healthgrades 2018 hospital quality rankings.
