The World's Most Densely Populated Cities

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
The growth of these cities will create a host of environmental and health problems.”By 2210, the global population is expected to grow from just more than 7 billion to 11.3 billion — with 87 percent of the population living in urban areas, according to a new working paper by researchers from NYU’s Marron Institute.Most of these individuals will be in what’s now the developing world — creating a host of environmental and health problems.If projections are correct, these new urban dwellers will require the world’s existing cities to expand six-fold to accommodate triple the residents, Richard Florida wrote in The Atlantic. Plus, the world will need 500 new “megacities” of 10 million or more, he wrote.

Amazing Satellite Photos Of Earth Offer A New Perspective

Amazing Satellite Photos Of Earth Offer A New Perspective | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
From up in the sky, the world that we know seems simplified, yet profound and the way architects and urban planners have shaped the earth comes sharply into view.Astronauts have described this phenomenon as the "overview effect," citing the psychological impact of seeing the Earth from outer space. The Daily Overview, a new website launched last month, aims to share their sense of awe by posting one satellite photo of the Earth every day.Founder Benjamin Grant and his team have chosen to focus on the built environment, "shining a light on the areas where our human activity—for better or worse—has shaped the landscape."

150 Years Ago, Sochi Was the Site of a Horrific Ethnic Cleansing

150 Years Ago, Sochi Was the Site of a Horrific Ethnic Cleansing | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
“Czar Alexander II may have freed the serfs, but his war against the stateless people of the Caucasus cannot be ignored”The czar’s approval of this rapid expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Circassians to the Ottoman Empire resulted in an ethnic cleansing through disease and drowning as overcrowded ferries crossed the Black Sea. The Ottomans were unprepared for the influx of refugees, and the absence of adequate shelter caused even more deaths from exposure. Those Circassians who attempted to remain in the Russian Empire and fight for their land were massacred. Sochi’s “Red Hill,” where the skiing and snowboarding events will take place during these Olympic Games, was the site of the Circassian last stand, where the Imperial Russian armies celebrated their “victory” over the local defenders.

Interactive Maps Show How English Words Translate Across Europe

Interactive Maps Show How English Words Translate Across Europe | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
Here's a fun language web toy to while away your afternoon. Type in an English word, and you'll see a map of how that word translates in different parts of Europe.James Trimble created the European Word Translator, which uses Google Translate to source its translated words. He notes that the system isn't perfect; some of the words may be incorrect, and sometimes it may pull words that are used in non-European dialects of the language. Plus, it only provides one translation per language per word—so watch those words that have more than one meaning in English. Still, it's a fun way to track similarities and differences across languages—and to find lots of quick translations.Visit the link for more examples.

Va. foreign geography bill heads for partisan showdown

Va. foreign geography bill heads for partisan showdown | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
On the campaign trail, Terry McAuliffe (D) said that as governor, he’d make sure that new school textbooks note that the Sea of Japan is also known as the East Sea.The promise was important to Northern Virginia’s large Korean American community, who see the Sea of Japan designation as a painful relic of Japanese occupation.But the pledge has turned into a huge headache and partisan showdown for the new governor. It leaves McAuliffe with an unhappy choice: angering one of the state’s largest trade partners (Japan) or alienating a key Northern Virginia voting bloc (Koreans).
