Dave McCorquodale replied to Ben Holmes's discussion 'ASLA dues'
"I'm not a member of ASLA or CLARB.  While it certainly seems like a legit business expense, I'd ask your accountant to be sure.  If you're an employee of a firm, they may also know the answer to that. Dave"

Dave McCorquodale replied to Paige's discussion 'Getting an education abroad?'
"I think the consensus around here is that your ability to bring income into the firm and/or increase firm profitability would have a greater positive impact on your earnings than a license. Do longer MLA grad programs contain a study abroad time if…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to Paige's discussion 'Getting an education abroad?'
"Paige-- I've got a friend who studied for a mini semester at an urban design school in the Netherlands.  Not exactly like what you're looking at here, but maybe relevant.  I think he'd say that the international exposure…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to ida's discussion 'Trump as President? Meaning for Landscape Architects?'
"Many of the guys I went to high school with in a small East Texas town close to the coast went on to become welders, pipefitters, machinists, millwrights, etc.  They work on projects that are only going to last a certain period of time,…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to ida's discussion 'Trump as President? Meaning for Landscape Architects?'
"I'm reminded of that saying that goes something like: You can't reason someone out of a position that they weren't reasoned into.   I'm fine with policy disagreements, but the whole "Obama's a Muslim" thing is…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to ida's discussion 'Trump as President? Meaning for Landscape Architects?'
"Craig, takes conviction to say what you did. I'll stand with you. My experience is that the "new & improved" right has run most of us who were interested in constructive dialogue off. Robert-- I appreciate your point of view, but…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'LA's searching for a JOB....a few suggestions.'
"Andrew, I think your point about profitability to the firm is perhaps the most important factor in an employer/employee relationship.  Many don't seem to grasp it, and who can blame them, I don't think it's emphasized enough in…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to ida's discussion 'Trump as President? Meaning for Landscape Architects?'
"We live & die by oil down here in Texas. Simple as that. To be fair, there are other industries that shore things up, but when the oil guys are down & out, everyone feels it. I'm in favor of meaningful regulations, but want fewer of the…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to J. Robert Wainner's discussion 'FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION FOR ALL U.S. STUDENTS?????'
"Well, the forum has been rather quiet lately, perhaps this thread will generate a bit of discussion.  I admit I've not ran any costs or looked into the subject with any scrutiny, but here's a few general observations: 1. I imagine…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to Sara Kirk's discussion 'stamping drawings'
"There are a couple neigborhoods around here that require an LA seal on residential landscape plans.  An installer I've worked with for about 10 years asks me to review and seal his planting plans occasionally.  I'll meet him on…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to Sara Shirley's discussion 'Pattern Books for Rezoning'
"With only a cursory look, "pattern books" appear to refer to a proprietary process from a specific firm that results in what looks a lot like a master planned community to me.  The specific methods and process they use is exclusive to…"

Dave McCorquodale replied to ZACH CROSS's discussion 'Augmented Reality'
"Ah, I see now.  While familiar with the concept, it is not something I utilize.  My initial thought is how to successfully build the cost of a platform like that into a design fee (both hardware and software).  I suspect a large firm…"

Can anyone out there recommend sites that would have somewhat scholarly papers on the use of native plants. I am looking for advocates of this practice and those who feel it is nonsense. I'm not looking for books, looking for papers. This for a side…Continue
