America's Top Melting Pot

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
As Atlanta has grown (thanks in large part to its ever-expanding airport and reputation as a business-friendly town), its identity has advanced in different courses, depending on who you ask. For some, it's the quintessential Southern city where you can discover sweet tea, peach trees, and conventional yard and-shade homes.For others, its the country's hip-bounce capital and middle of dark endeavor. For faith-based event planners, it’s a regular on the meetings destination rotation because of its location, variety of accommodations and cultural offerings. Major capital projects and urban developments continue to inflate the city’s already-expansive tourism offerings. Atlanta is a city of consistent restoration and reinvention, and that could be a real reward for organizers who need to show actively present people something new, regardless of the fact that they had an occasion in the city as of late.
 

Atlanta Airport Launches New Automated Passports

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant

Getting home from an international trip will become easier and quicker for some travelers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport Thursday as ATL officials and U.S. Customs and Border Protection unveil 74 BorderXpress by YVR Automated Passport Control kiosks in the federal inspection stations in Concourses E and F. Currently, American, Canadian and international travelers with Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) approval will be allowed to use the new system.

APC is a self-service kiosk that allows travelers or family groups to submit their Customs Declaration and biographic information electronically and reduce the time they spend with a CBP officer. This has resulted in an average of 20-40% decrease in wait times at airports that employ APC kiosks.

The APC does not require pre-approval to participate and is free to use.

"We are excited to launch the Automated Passport Control system and are confident that travelers will be pleased with the faster processing speed through Customs,” said Miguel Southwell, Aviation General Manager. “This new initiative is a critical element in improving overall customer service at the Airport and I’m thankful for the strong partnership we have with the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency.

DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Teachers use it to find donors interested in supporting their classrooms. Thanks to Google's $340,000 donation to the site, 356 Atlanta teachers will be receiving materials for their 38,775 students.
 
Because of the surprise donation, Mrs. Godard’s Decatur classroom will have their pencils and markers restocked for next year and Ms. Sadler’s Dunwoody fourth graders will get interactive “boogie boards.” As for Mrs. Herndon’s French students? They'll finally be getting that karaoke machine.

Understanding the Beltline Fish Mural

by Zac Pasmanick - The Zac Team @ RE/MAX Metro Atlant
 
There's a cartoon-style mural underneath a bridge on the Beltline's Eastside Trail that depicts dozens of fish accompanied by what appear to be Chinese text. It looks good and all, but its meaning isn't all that clear.
 
Brandon Sadler, the artist responsible for the mural, responded to curbed.com's queries and gave a rather deep interpretation of the art. He went on to describe the big fish as a representation of the Beltline while the smaller fish depicted Atlantans. The Chinese-like text accompanying the mural say something meaningful as well, such as this line that goes, "Let's travel to new places and meet new faces filled with light."
 
Curbed.com's interview with Sadler could be found on their site:
