D'aundra's curator insight, June 26, 5:56 PM

This article makes a great argument as to why public subsidies are a bad idea for cities. Why should the taxpayers be responsible for helping billionaire sports owners build a new home for the teams when they can afford to fund them themselves. After all they reap the most benefits.

Nikolai Berger's curator insight, April 24, 2013 9:32 AM

Here's an example of good news. Things are told as they are. Why can't people patiently wait for news like this? Why do they have to jump to conclusions and label things? how does that solve anything? The News' agencies try to get information as quickly as they can not because they want to, but because the public is demanding for this. If everyone began to act patiently and waited for concrete information while leaving their imaginative minds at bay, we would get proper news and avoid unnecessary conflicts that could do more damage than the issue the news is covering in the first place.

Indoor Sports Facilities Management in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld | Rebound | Sports Facility Management.4008058 | Scoop.it

The Indoor Sports Facilities Management industry escaped the recession relatively unscathed compared with other industries in the leisure sector. Over the five years to 2012, IBISWorld estimates industry revenue grew at a 0.1% average annual rate, including 1.5% growth in 2012 to about $  780.4 million. The industry did contract 4.0% in 2008 and 0.2% as wary consumers curtailed spending on higher priced recreation activities at ice rinks and swimming complexes, but demand for indoor sports facilities rebounded quickly as consumers increasingly perceived industry team sport services as a necessary health and social expense
