Some technologies radically alter the way humans use space. Air conditioning was one of them. The way we live, the way we socialize, and likely the places we choose to inhabit or avoid have been utterly transformed by the humble air conditioning unit.

Urbanization and the evolution of cities across 10,000 years

"About 10,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers, aided by rudimentary agriculture, moved to semi-permanent villages and never looked back. With further developments came food surpluses, leading to commerce, specialization and, many years later with the Industrial Revolution, the modern city. Vance Kite plots our urban past and how we can expect future cities to adapt to our growing populations."

"When the Minute 319 'pulse flow' began in March 2014, it was not clear whether the effort would be enough to reconnect the Colorado River with the Sea of Cortez. Some hydrologists thought there might be just enough water; others were less optimistic. It turns out the optimists were right, though just barely. For the first time in sixteen years, the Colorado River was reunited with the Sea of Cortez on May 15, 2014."

This incredible series of interactive charts from the New York Times show where the residents of every U.S. state were born and how that data has changed over time (update: now available as an interactive map).  This graph of Florida shows that around 1900, most people living in Florida were from the South.  Around the middle of the 20th century more people from other parts of the U.S. and from outside the U.S. started moving in.  What changes in U.S. society led to these demographic shifts?  How has demographics of your state changes over the last 114 years?

If video killed the radio star and Netflix drove Blockbuster out of business, then the World Fairs as true Global events were undone by television.  The very idea of gathering in one place much like the Olympic Games to see the great innovations ahead of us even feels old fashioned.  Televised global coverage rendered the global coverage of the fair a little less magical and the event lost its sizzle.

Gender Equality and Business Resource Mapping

A growing body of reports, case studies, tools and guidance on the importance of gender equality to economic progress, to sustainable business and development, is emerging from a wide variety of sources:  business, academia, governments, think tanks, publications and blogs.

To view an initial mapping of materials and resources relevant to the WEPs compiled by Simpson and Thacher & Bartlett LLP, see here.

To suggest additional resources to be added to the growing list, contact the WEPs team here.

Principles for Responsible Management Education Gender Equality Repository

The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) Gender Equality Repository identifies materials and resources that assist faculty in integrating gender issues and awareness into management education in that field. These include, for instance, specific case studies, syllabi, texts, and best practices that assess or otherwise address the roles of gender in various educational and workplace environments. The Repository also lists resources, including search engines, divisions/subgroups within professional academic associations, organisations such as the Aspen Institute’s Center for Business Education, etc. that are designed to help faculty and administrators incorporate gender-related topics into management education curricula.

Gender Equity Seal (GES) Standard

This publication defines the standard requirements for the Gender Equity Seal (GES) and GES Certification System. The goal of the Certification System is to spur companies to promote, improve on and monitor the position of women in their workforce. It includes a set of five steps that a company can progress through within specified time periods and which results in the award of the Gender Equity Seal after a successful audit. Social Accountability International (SAI) developed the GES Standard and Certification System for UN Women Egypt as a progressive certification system that integrates capacity building. The advantage of the GES Certification System is that it can assist a range of organizations and, by using auditors that already possess experience in conducting a management systems audit, can reduce the amount of additional time required for a GES audit and supplement any existing labour standard programme.

This is an excellent podcast with many geographic strands running through it. 

Eli Levine's curator insight, May 31, 12:47 PM

Personally, I'm a little resentful that our money is being used to finance Chinese firms.  I'm also not happy that the Chinese aren't using local labor, which would boost economic activity in African societies.  I'm surprised if that's not more of a sore point for the people who live in these societies.

 

But anyway.

 

If we weren't so committed to spreading our political "religion" of democracy and Liberal values, we may have a shot at securing Africa for ourselves.  A pity that we're not as competitive a country as China.  However, if China wants to play international empire, I say let them.  They'll either do a better job than we've done or they'll be as corrupt and exploitative as we were and, thus, end their tenure on "top".  So long as we're able to defend ourselves over here, I see no reason to challenge the artificial empire of China.  That's just my interpretation of history.  Take from it what you will.

 

Think about it.

Bob Manning's curator insight, June 1, 11:43 AM

For Africa to develop, they need a better infrastructure.  China's investment in this area is allowing them access to the huge reserves of resources and growing labor pool.  Is this a repeat of colonialism?  Is there a way to do this in a sustainable manner that is mutually beneficial to both the Chinese and the African countries?
