Car strikes man on Zoom call inside Middleburg Heights building, police chief says

MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, Ohio — A man is in serious condition after a car crashed into a Middleburg Heights building while he was on a Zoom call, Police Chief Ed Tomba said.

The crash happened shortly before 11 a.m. at Davis & Company CPAs on Pearl Road and Seneca Trail.

A dump truck was trying to make a left into a parking lot on Pearl Road when a car was coming from the opposite direction and struck it in the bumper, Tomba said. It appears the dump truck made too wide of a left turn, he noted.

The driver of the car tried to stop, but instead pressed the gas pedal, crashed into the bumper and flew onto a tree lawn before crashing into the building, Tomba said. The office worker got pinned under the car.

The man on the Zoom call was taken to Southwest General Health Center and later

Singapore is one of the world’s most expensive places to buy a car and does not currently have any auto manufacturing capacity. But the wealthy city-state has set out ambitious plans to phase out petrol vehicles by 2040.

“Automotive activities are becoming viable in Singapore once again. EVs have a different supply chain, fewer mechanical parts and more electronics,

Portland building earns top certification for sustainability

Mahlum Architects’ new studio is the first Living Building Petal certification project in the city.

PORTLAND, Ore — Talk about a transformation.

A one-time car dealership turned stamping manufacturer in Southeast Portland is now one of greenest buildings on the planet.

Mahlum Architects’ new studio is the first Living Building Petal certification project in the city. That means the building is as about as environmentally friendly as buildings can get.

Almost everything inside of it is non-toxic.

“The rigor is what makes it special,” said partner Kurt Haapala.

And rigor is certainly the right word.

The building is the first of its kind in Portland and one of only a small number worldwide.

In order to obtain the special certification, the company had to eliminate over 800 toxic materials typically found in workspaces.
