Two cities or urban centres that are founded in close geographic proximity and then grow into each other over time
St. Anthony Falls has long been one of Minneapolis' top attractions. But the endurance of the falls is due to some complex infrastructure designed to halt erosion. A key component of that infrastructure is a hidden wall -- buried beneath the river -- that has protected the falls for roughly 145 years. Little is known about the wall's condition, however. River historian John Anfinson believes there needs to be a comprehensive study of the structure's status. Anfinson is the former superintendent of the national park comprising the Mississippi River in the Twin Cities.

We talk about what we have learned about humanity since we began teaching improv. John shares a bit about his teaching style. We discuss the lessons we have learned about confidence, accountability, and commitment (both as human beings and as performers).

If so many people seem to be looking for work, why are so many employers struggling to find employees? The labor shortage is hobbling the economic recovery. Coffee shops and restaurants have cut back their hours of operation because they are short-staffed and are offering cash bonuses to entice applicants. Bus drivers are in such short supply that some school districts canceled routes just days before classes started this fall. Long-term care facilities are turning away residents because they don't have enough nursing assistants. MPR News host Angela Davis talks with MPR News senior economics contributor Chris Farrell and hospitality industry leaders about the impact of the labor shortage and why workers are so hard to find. Plus, an announcement from Children's Minnesota about plans to open a new inpatient mental health center for children and teenagers at the hospital's St. Paul location in the second half of 2022. Guests: Dr. Marc Gorelick is the president and CEO of Children's Minnesota Chris Farrell is MPR's senior economics contributor Ann Rammer is the president and CEO of Hospitality Minnesota JJ Haywood is the president and CEO of Pizza Lucé, which has eight locations in the Twin Cities and one in Duluth Subscribe to the MPR News with Angela Davis podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or RSS. Use the audio player above to listen to the full conversation. Clarification: The audio conversation refers to Minnesota having among the fewest psychiatric beds per capita in the country. Minnesota has the fewest state-run psychiatric beds, not the fewest psychiatric inpatient beds overall.

As a business and a builder, Ironmark Building Co. has strong ties to Minneapolis' Uptown neighborhood. The company, which specializes in urban infill work and other project types, is based at 1710 W. Lake St. in the heart of an Uptown neighborhood that has seen its share of turmoil in recent months. Violent crime and civil unrest have prompted some Uptown businesses to pull up their stakes in the neighborhood. Likewise, citing concerns about public safety and regulatory requirements in Minneapolis, some contractors are looking elsewhere for work. For its part, however, Ironmark has no plans to relocate. “Lake Street still has a lot of work to do to get back to where it was,” says Brent Kluver, Ironmark partner and vice president of project development. “And we're looking at some options to help with that effort, too. So this is our home and we don't plan on really going anywhere for quite some time.” In the following interview, Kluver talks with Reporter Brian Johnson about running a construction business in Uptown amid the unrest. He also takes a deep dive into the pandemic's impact on his business, the outlook for the Twin Cities construction market and more.

It’s easy to get caught up with what is right in front of you. Leading a church is no exception. The list of to-dos is endless. A sermon needs to be prepared and preached. There is always another meeting. All of this is good, and it’s a part of a call to ministry. I love it. But far too often, a focus on the here and now is at the expense of a greater mission taking place. God is at work in other churches as well. God, the Holy Spirit, is meeting the needs of a church down the street and across town. And it takes looking up and past the present circumstances to see the greater gospel mission. One Message with One Mission Of course, there is a litany of churches in America, and some of them need to be closed down. There are churches where the gospel message is not being preached, and the Bible is collecting dust. I am referring to the churches that have made a bee-line to liberation theology or theological liberalism. Those churches are writing their own story, and the story includes a slow death. And the data backs it up. I’ll grant that church attendance is down across the board in America, but mainline (liberal) protestant churches are leading the way. When I think about the advancement of the gospel, I have in mind churches where the pastor preaches from the Bible. The good news of Jesus Christ is evident in word and deed. I am talking about churches consumed with being transformed into the image of Christ instead of being transformed into the image of culture. It’s with these churches where I want to lock arms with one message on one mission. I want to look past the tree to see the forest. While these churches might be few in number, it’s these churches where I am willing to find ways to partner. It’s these churches that must band together for the advancement of the gospel. COVID Consternation I was reminded of the value of gospel partnership during 2020 and into 2021. The church where I am a pastor, Redemption Hill Church, had to navigate remaining united and meet every Sunday, without a church building. The plans we made before the pandemic were squashed, and suddenly we needed to figure out where to gather for worship. So during 2020 and into 2021, we gathered at ten different locations. From parks to drive-in church on my front lawn, the church flexed and gathered. Now, I have to admit it was challenging to pivot week in and week out. Nonetheless, by the grace of God and the support from the saints of Redemption Hill, we still exist for the glory of God. However, we were not alone. Other churches in the area saw our unique situation and moved to help us. I want to tell you about three churches that understand the importance of the gospel and the local church. “A Little Help From My Friends” Frontier Church Before COVID and before the Powers family relocated to the Des Moines metro, several families from the Twin Cities arrived. They were a people without a church home. Even after the Powers set down roots in Des Moines, it would be several months before our official first church service. So I decided to connect with the lead pastor Cole Deike. I wanted him to know that there would be a small influx of visitors for a season. He received our team with joy. Frontier faithfully preaches from God’s Word, and they are on a mission to love the Des Moines

In this week's episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Maggie Meyers. Maggie is a Doctor of Marriage and Family Therapy and a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. Maggie has worked with clients with various diagnoses and struggles; however, much of her work has been in the field of eating disorders. For years, she worked in various levels of care and in leadership roles at a nationally renowned eating disorder clinic. More recently, she has decided to fully commit her time at a private practice in the Twin Cities area, called Wholehearted Healing. In my conversation with Maggie, we tackle all sorts of important topics: what's the difference between disordered eating and eating disorders, how social media is shaping beauty standards, why the phrase “strong is the new skinny” isn't helpful, and why it's so important that we not equate body shape/size with health or with worth. What I love about Maggie is that she boldly calls out injustice and that which doesn't bring life. She is a fierce advocate for her clients and for women, desiring they live freely as their authentic self, unencumbered by an unnecessary and unhelpful preoccupation with food or body image. My hope is that our conversation helps to expose some of the unhelpful messages of the beauty industry and diet culture, so that you can shed any life-depleting messages you may have adopted. So, may you be freed and more able to live more fully into the person God has created you to be.

This entrepreneur first came to Minnesota to study computer science at Bethel University in Saint Paul, where she also met her husband Pete. While Betsy's strengths aligned with a career in software engineering, this creative knew she was a people person and she felt isolated sitting in front of a computer all day.

Karla by day is a news anchor and reporter for Kare 11 News, the NBC affiliate here in the Twin Cities.

And just recently, she has launched her own company called So Many Goodbyes, a company for families and caregivers that are sharing our journey. She'll talk about the services that they offer with caregivers, training them and talking to them about the importance of understanding and bringing together the emotions of family versus the critical job that they play in the lives of so many battling Alzheimer's and dementia.

A threat to a Twin Cities metro synagogue has led the house of worship to move to online services in the midst of the high holy days. Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park got word of the threat from the Anti Defamation League's Midwest office. Also, fires in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness are relatively calm with wetter, cooler weather on the way. This is the MPR News evening update for Friday, Sept. 10, 2021. Hosted by Nina Moini. Theme music by Gary Meister.
Small Town, Minnesota, roughly 30 miles from Minneapolis and St. Paul. As an 80's kid, it was a great place to grow up. You were 15 minutes from shopping malls but you were far enough away to feel in the country. 30 minutes to get to work in The Twin Cities. My town hosted one quaint elementary school built in the 1920s. The school was conveniently located next to the IGA grocery store for an after-school candy fix. When weather permitted, we rode our bikes to school every day. No parental escort. Kidnapping? What the heck was that?

The pandemic called into question everything that made coworking desirable: shared work areas, in-person networking. But industry pioneer Don Ball has seen work culture trends cycle more than once before. And indeed, demand for flexible workspaces is already swinging back. “Hybrid work opens an opportunity for coworking—it's a professional office that's not your home, and not your [company] HQ. If you have one close to where you live, I think what we're going to see is suburban coworking…do really well.” The opportunity in 2021 is not unlike what inspired Ball to get into coworking more than a decade ago. A career freelancer, Ball recalls “going stir crazy” working by himself at home in the mid-1990s. He rented an office, just to get out of the house and remembers thinking: “What if I invited others to join me? It seemed like a goofy idea at the time.” Laptop computers and high-speed internet made it more feasible. In 2010, Ball and partner Kyle Coolbroth got a good deal on a vacant space in the Lowertown area of downtown St. Paul. They resisted turning it into separate office suites—the two weren't interested in becoming landlords; they wanted to create a community for software engineers, freelancers, and business founders to connect and share ideas. So they invested in some Ikea furniture and opened CoCo, the Twin Cities' first modern-day coworking community. Soon after, then-Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak convinced them to open a second CoCo in the Grain Exchange Building. “There was a hunger for people to see what happening” in the startup community, Ball says. CoCo's expansive space in the middle of downtown Minneapolis became that symbol of innovation. “It was the first time you could walk into one space see that it's happening here.” But while Coco became a local success story, WeWork, which launched the same year, became an international sensation—right up until its failed IPO. Ball talks about doing business in WeWork's shadow. “It was fantasy fueled by funny money. That was obvious to all of us in the business from day one,” Ball says. “They were acting like [real estate] was a software platform—like they could absorb all the costs of onboarding, and it would someday make money. It created downward price pressure…coworking as a business itself is okay, but it's not great. It's not going to make anyone rich. We were always looking for a twist.” In 2018, Ball and Coolbroth teamed up with Fueled Collective and set about franchising their coworking communities and turning them into modern conference centers that would keep the spaces activated beyond 9 to 5. Ball stepped away from day-to-day operations in 2019. He sits on the board of Fueled Collective, which downsized during the pandemic and now operates two Minneapolis spaces. There's a third in Cincinnati. Today, Ball is back to freelancing, including a project related to regenerative agriculture, which isn't as far afield as it sounds: the concept is to create shared growing space for crops and production space for small food producers. Coworking, for the ag industry. For more perspective on work culture, we go Back to the Classroom with the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business where adjunct faculty member Rod Hagedorn teaches management. “Instead of trying to second guess where everything is headed, we should think in terms of drivers of change," Hagedorn says. "The pandemic taught all of us about the need for agility in terms of business operations.” And with a disruption in office work comes the opportunity to consider which activities are best done in person: “innovation, creative problem solving—two areas critical for our economy and even our national security. The best way to come up with innovative solutions is still the old-fashioned way: in the office, with colleagues. We need people around us to be able to sense what someone is feeling and see reactions that you can't get on Zoom.”
