Northeast Ohio manufacturing could increase dramatically over the next seven years if it embraces the Internet of Things, or IoT.

Industrial IoT is where computer devices are embedded in every step of manufacturing.

The advocacy group, Team NEO, has put together a roadmap for the region, detailing its strengths and weaknesses, with and without IoT.

Jacob Duritsky is the vice president of strategy and research for TeamNEO.

The Fund for Our Economic Future has released a study assessing Northeast Ohio’s economy. The Two Tomorrows report envisions two futures.

It finds that Northeast Ohio may struggle as long as it deals with issues of poverty, economic polarization and systemic racial exclusion and inequality.

Bethia Burke, the director of strategy and resource allocation for the fund, says cooperation may be the key to solving those problems.

A record number of snowy owls are stopping in Northeast Ohio due to a biological phenomenon.

The owls are native to the Arctic. It’s normal to see one or two in Northeast Ohio during the winter. This year, 18 have been spotted in the Cleveland area just since Thanksgiving.

Marty Calabrese, a naturalist at Cleveland Metroparks, says the reason is owls had more to eat this summer, which led to more offspring.

State lawmakers are gearing up for another round in the fight over renewable energy mandates.

Opponents say they’re a financial burden; supporters say they help cut down on air pollution, which then improves respiratory health.

There is one part of Ohio where the risk for experiencing breathing problems is one of the highest in the country.

Vice President Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence found a friendly crowd in Northeast Ohio yesterday when he visited a sheet metal factory. Pence told them that President Trump has turned the economy and the country around and that “America is back.”  

The co-owner of Tendon Manufacturing in Warrensville Heights, Mike Gordon, was only too happy to host Vice President Pence.  He said thanks to the Trump administration, optimism and sales in manufacturing are up.

“Now you’re not going to hear this kind of good news in your news media." Gordon says. 

Volunteers spent three days last week counting pedestrians and cyclists in Northeast Ohio as part of region-wide study.

NOACA, the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency, gathered data in Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorrain and Medina counties.

Spokeswoman Jocelynn Clemings says the information will be used in planning and designing multi-modal infrastructure.
