Not getting by in Portland


The city’s economy, and especially its real estate market, is booming, and gentrification is a potent force reshaping many neighborhoods. But it’s striking how much is the same for low-wage workers.

Unavailable men need not inquire

In Layman's Terms
I keep attracting men who are completely unavailable—either married or in failing relationships (as I learn later). They don’t make physical advances, but I definitely get the feeling they are interested. Either way, guys I shouldn’t, wouldn’t, and don’t want to be dating. What am I doing wrong to attract them? And how do I get this pattern to change?”

Groups address struggle with capitalist system

Dat Capital
A man stands before the group and traces his long struggle with addiction. “I not only enable it, I operate within it and allow it to rule my life,” he says. While the admission follows a familiar script, the subject is a new one. “My name is Brian, and I’m personally afflicted… by capitalism.”

Methods from madness

Dancers from Portland and New York bring compelling performance to the ICA

Closing the gap

Is Portland ready for a $15 per hour minimum wage?

Play oud in the West Bank
"(Israeli) immigration asked me at the airport why I didn’t leave when I could have and I said it was because I felt safe. They told me I was nuts.”

Number crunchers

Press Releases
Maybe instead of devoting still-more resources to food reviews, Maine’s leading news organizations should spend money on keeping better tabs on Augusta.

A little nip

Politics and Other Mistakes
You might not realize it, but while it’s legal to carry a gun in Maine (either openly or, with a permit, concealed), putting a flask containing an alcoholic beverage in your hip pocket is against the law.

Selling our shares

Despite its perks, Airbnb is making it tougher to live in Portland
Before we herald Airbnb as the harbinger of Portland’s “sharing economy” revolution, some troubling side effects are beginning to show. Airbnb is raising rents, fracturing neighborhoods, accelerating gentrification, and diminishing Portland’s stock of affordable, available, permanent homes.
