A recent Sunday afternoon at the Bridge City Collective cannabis shop in North Portland saw a steady flow of customers. Little wonder: A gram of weed was selling for less than the price of a glass of wine. The $4 and $5 grams enticed Scotty Saunders, a 24-year-old sporting a gray hoodie, to spend $88 picking out new products to try with a friend. "We've definitely seen a huge drop in prices," he says. Across the wood-and-glass counter, Bridge City owner David Alport was less delighted. He says he's never sold marijuana this cheap before. "We have standard grams on the shelf at $4," Alport says. "Before, we didn't see a gram below $8." The scene at Bridge City Collective is playing out across the city and state. Three years into Oregon's era of recreational cannabis, the state is inundated with legal weed. It turns out Oregonians are good at growing cannabis—too good. In February, state officials announced that 1.1 million pounds of cannabis flower were logged in the state's database. If a million pounds sounds like a lot of pot, that's because it is: Last year, Oregonians smoked, vaped or otherwise consumed just under 340,000 pounds of legal bud. Yet stat ...

TAGAYTAY, Philippines - Ace Hardware continues to have problems. Did corporate instruct their stores in Tagaytay, The Philippines to sell equipment that does not work or is it that they simply do not care? At least this idea seems plausible; the Tagaytay staff at the store is to blame.
Ace Hardware officers responsible:
John S. Venhuizen, President & CEO and William M. Guzik, Executive VP, CFO & Chief Risk Officer.
As an example, a woman in Tagaytay, Philippines whos husband is an Oregon resident, purchased two water heaters so that she would have hot water in her kitchen and bathroom. She paid a huge price and extra price to have the heaters installed the next day. The woman with the first name of Ivy, who purchased the water heaters is pregnant and sick.

EAST WENATCHEE, Washington—Hands on the wheel, eyes squinting against the winter sun, Lauren Miehe eases his Land Rover down the main drag and tells me how he used to spot promising sites to build a bitcoin mine, back in 2013, when he was a freshly arrived techie from Seattle and had just discovered this sleepy rural community. The attraction then, as now, was the Columbia River, which we can glimpse a few blocks to our left. Bitcoin mining—the complex process in which computers solve a complicated math puzzle to win a stack of virtual currency—uses an inordinate amount of electricity, and thanks to five hydroelectric dams that straddle this stretch of the river, about three hours east of Seattle, miners could buy that power more cheaply here than anywhere else in the nation. Long before locals had even heard the words “cryptocurrency” or “blockchain,” Miehe and his peers realized that this semi-arid agricultural region known as the Mid-Columbia Basin was the best place to mine bitcoin in America—and maybe the world. The trick, though, was finding a location where you could put all that cheap power to work. You needed an existing building, because in those days, when bitcoin ...
