Interesting data!

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 16, 2013 10:35 AM

No surprise here that the countries that are more well off generally have less of a gender gap. One thing that i like to point out about this article is that the united states came in 23rd which i think is pretty humerous since we pride outselfs on our rights and equality but were not even in the top 20 countries in the world when it comes down to equality between genders. The biggest surprise of this article though has to be nicaragua coming in 10th even though every country around it scored poorly. hopefully the nicaraguans can teach their fellow costa ricans and houndurans how to close the gap.

How people in Muslim countries prefer women to dress in public

How people in Muslim countries prefer women to dress in public | ikvize1953 | Scoop.it
Even as publics in many of the surveyed Muslim-majority countries express a clear preference for women to dress conservatively, many also say women should be able to decide for themselves what to wear.

We've been discussing the Quebec Charter of Values and the limits it places on diversity in the Quebec landscape. Isn't it interesting that such legal limitations do not exist in many of the Muslim countries around the world.

Tracy Galvin's curator insight, May 5, 11:57 AM

I am not sure if it is because I am an independently raised western woman but this whole article seems to completely address women as property.  I realize that some countries are much stricter than others but it is not something I can comprehend.

Des pesticides dangereux demeurent dans nos sols malgré les interdictions

Des pesticides dangereux demeurent dans nos sols malgré les interdictions | ikvize1953 | Scoop.it

Des pesticides, autorisés pendant des années, se révèlent parfois toxiques au point d'être frappés d'interdiction: ils ne disparaissent pourtant pas forcément du territoire du fait de leur persistance dans les sols mais aussi d'utilisations frauduleuses.
 
"Un certain nombre de données, dont certaines officielles, laissent penser que l'utilisation de pesticides interdits est un vrai problème, même si elle ne concerne qu'une minorité de producteurs", avance François Veillerette, porte-parole de l'ONG Générations futures.
 
Exemples: le carbofuran, l'endosulfan, le terbuthylazine ou le carbosulfan,  ...

Transportation and Planning

"When you combine a street and a road, you get a STROAD, one of the most dangerous and unproductive human environments. To get more for our transportation dollar, America needs an active policy of converting STROADs to productive streets or high capacity roadways."

In this video, a road provides high connectivity between places, and a street is a diverse platform of social interactions that create a place.  A 'stroad' can be likened unto a spork--it tries to do it everything but does nothing especially well.  While you may debate the principle being shown, this video (found on Atlantic Cities) is a good way to show the spatial thinking that city planners need to utilize to improve the urban environment.

the danger of stroads

François Lanthier's curator insight, January 31, 11:19 AM

The Stroad - an unfortunate phenomenon... NYC is taking action to minimize its' STROADS... more cities should do the same.
