People are so confident the mere threat of violence will result in a fatal encounter w/Israeli security, it's now a method of suicide.

Paper from @Richard_Florida & co tries to marry his creative class theory with Michael Porter's cluster theory.https://t.co/wwmkhxWYnM

Original Tweet: https://twitter.com/c_gibbon/status/660942888851931140

he results of combining these two lenses also suggest that the US economy has a very significant and rising challenge in dealing with the negative consequences of industry and occupational clustering, which is leaving behind a substantial part of the workforce. The authors believe that the way out of this dilemma is to dramatically increase the creative content of jobs across the US economy.

For Tim Papandreou, mobility must be seen anew, as a platform welcoming all transport providers – whether public or private – under a framework of key criteria and shared data. The City of Bristol’s mayor, George Ferguson, for example, described his measures to embrace the digital future by enabling an Internet of Things that will operate throughout the city to create a laboratory of innovation with open participation. Open data is essential for allowing varied actors to work together to ensure that citizens get the transport services they need. Equally important in data-sharing is the role of academic institutions, whose technical capabilities are needed to verify the integrity of the data.
what did mayors sentence mean? to him?
hard to do any of this w/o freeing people first.
and oh my to academic institutions as needed for validity.. of integrity of data..?
perhaps our focus is on wrong data.. 
whoa. 
and let's stop that energy drain.

These cities were made for walking

Mobility forms part of the complex world of systems which make up a city. It is inextricably linked to our daily lives as a means by which we interact with each other. So we must think of the human scale, rather than the endless possibilities of technology. Ashwin Mahesh, Founder of Mapunity, encouraged us to think in shorter distances. Planners should consider the speed at which we need to move within the city to reach our destinations, run errands, or see friends within short trips of 3 to 6 kilometers. This means connecting neighborhoods and maintaining diversity within communities. Then, mobility becomes more than a techno-managerial issue: it transforms into a socio-political one.
so perhaps.. on human scale.. completely diff.
ie: do we even know what humans are like..?
I think not.
perhaps we know what... supposed to... humans are like..
again... huge span of diff.

we need to wake up.
most opportune time.. to leapfrog to a do over... and we re missing it.
For Riccardo Marini, Director of Gehl Architects, our solutions should have an innate simplicity which is based on an appreciation for how we function as human beings. Old cities were built for walking. But 1940’s urban development introduced pavements and a world built for car dominance, which is where the problems lie. We can learn from this, and all that this requires is a focus on innovations through the lens of a human model. After all, if our urban mobility decisions can influence the ultimate goal of the future of our health and well-being – what could be more important than this?

oh wow.
I wrote that last little bit before reading this final para.
oh my.
based on how we function as human beings.
agree.. on the importance of lens thru human model...
but I dont see anyone doing that.
all have some embedded/oppressive/compromising assumption on ... human model.
juxtaposition of words of health/well-being and words perpetuated illness/depression/disease/not-us ness

nothing more important than... waking up.. 
ie:realizing what's now irrelevant...

fb jake barton
Segregation is a shameful legacy of America's past of redlining and racism, "white flight" (which was really multi-racial and middle-class) eroded the social and economic fabric of cities, but gentrification, which goes against both, is often seen as knee-jerk negative.
"Implicit in all these narratives is a strong quasi-segregationist impulse: Rich people ought to live with rich people, and poor people ought to live with other poor people. Anything that changes this status quo is suspect: If rich people move into poor neighborhoods, it’s called gentrification. If poor people move into rich neighborhoods, it’s called social engineering. It’s difficult to see how this framing ever leads to a world in which there is less economic segregation."

"Salesforce cofounder and billionaire Marc Benioff has a long history with spiritual advisers and gurus. So it shouldn't be surprising to learn that Buddhist monks are staying at one of his two houses in San Francisco. 
The monks are helping train Salesforce employees on how to be less stressed out.
They even want Benioff to turn parts of Salesforce's San Francisco headquarters into quiet "mindfulness" zones, Benioff told the New York Times' Quentin Hardy: 
It's an anxious era. The antidote to anxiety is mindfulness. I resisted this idea, but I have these Buddhist monks staying at my other house in San Francisco. They came down to our office and led a session at our auditorium. They told me they'd been at Facebook and Google teaching mindfulness, relieving their suffering. Our level of stress was much better. ... The monks also told me "we want to have a quiet floor." I'm not sure about that — I'm negotiating with them, but we're going to have mindfulness zones on the floors of our building, places where you can put your phone in a basket."
