Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, September 10, 3:11 PM

I found it interesting that one of the most busiest airports was in the US, in Atlanta to be exact. A lot of the airports that are included in this list of 25 were located in the US. Also, I noticed that there are no busy airports in Africa, South America, and Australia. I'm wondering if it is because not many people wish to travel there due to the climate and environment.

Edelin Espino's curator insight, September 10, 3:26 PM

Is really good to know the busiest Airports because you would think that the number one is John F. Kennedy International Airport but it is not. The number one busiest airport in the world is the

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Xynthia : leçons d’une catastrophe

Xynthia : leçons d’une catastrophe | Let the Great World Spin | Scoop.it
The storm Xynthia occurred on the 28th of february 2010. It has been one of the most deadly seen on the French territory since several decades, with 47 victims, half of them found on the department of Vendée. We suggest a global interpretation of the reasons of the disaster on two adjoining districts, in the south of this department, La Faute-sur-mer and L’Aiguillon-sur-mer. We first focus on the different natural hazard’s characteristics: wind’s strength, role of the high tide’s coefficients, topography of the affected coastal areas, particularly on enclosed bays and estuaries, constitute risk factors which have add their effects in time and space, creating strong uplifts of sea level. We then analyse the crisis development, which partially explains the vulnerability of specific areas. Following, the first economic consequences on submerged lands are presented. Finally, we point the lack of risk assessment, resulting from long and carelessness practices on territorial management, to the detriment of natural processes knowledge and constraints, especially on potentially submerged areas. The lack of risk awareness has persisted with decisions taken locally, as well as at the highest national politic power.

Paris innove sur les MOBILITÉS et la suite ? Bruno Marzloff - Demandez le programme ! - Blog - Groupe Chronos | Let the Great World Spin | Scoop.it

Les municipales en France sont dans six mois. Les candidats fourbissent leur programme. Les transports et déplacements cristallisent une préoccupation centrale des électeurs. La revue d'innovations sur les mobilités parisiennes, proposée ici, pourrait se répéter partout. Nous nous cantonnerons pour l'heure à la Capitale. Les premiers programmes surgissent. Est-ce ce qu'attendent les électeurs ? En attendant et mine de rien, depuis deux mandats Paris a ouvert des voies, en délaissant l'électeur automobiliste pour séduire avec une ville vivable. On attend les candidats sur la suite de l'histoire.

 

A la clé une réduction conséquente du trafic auto (reste à confirmer au niveau des pollutions), un apaisement des conflits entre modes (reste à gérer les différentiels de vitesse), un meilleur partage des espaces (exercice difficile entre tous), une reconquête des friches, un enrichissement de l'accueil des visiteurs (des navetteurs aux touristes), un travail sur les proximités, l'infomobilité et une urbanité renforcée. Le champ des mobilités est large. Avis aux candidats !

"It took the folks at Google to upgrade these choppy visual sequences from crude flip-book quality to true video footage. With the help of massive amounts of computer muscle, they have scrubbed away cloud cover, filled in missing pixels, digitally stitched puzzle-piece pictures together, until the growing, thriving, sometimes dying planet is revealed in all its dynamic churn. The images are striking not just because of their vast sweep of geography and time but also because of their staggering detail."

Fragile States Index

Fragile States Index | Let the Great World Spin | Scoop.it

"Weak and failing states pose a challenge to the international community. In today’s world, with its highly globalized economy, information systems and interlaced security, pressures on one fragile state can have serious repercussions not only for that state and its people, but also for its neighbors and other states halfway across the globe.  The Fragile States Index (FSI), produced by The Fund for Peace, is a critical tool in highlighting not only the normal pressures that all states experience, but also in identifying when those pressures are pushing a state towards the brink of failure."
