This is awesome! A city coming together to make it a green and better place? Why arent all cities doing this? I remember learning Pittsburgh being one of the dirtiest and industrial based cities, and now to read that its a better place. I think more cities need to come together as they said and stop competing with each other over money and make cities better for the citizens.
Drake Peterson's comment, September 12, 2013 5:06 PM
I think this is an outstanding article. Pittsburgh especially being known for their production of steel and coal, which is very harmful to the atmosphere. But now the city is taking their image and turning it into something green. Which is good for them and good for the world

If this city and its governing body can do it any other metro city can also follow suit.Only thing is to take action and act on it. people can ask their respective city council to initiate efforts in this regard . If their citizen also take interest and raise their voice for this concept lot can happen soon.

Christian Madison's curator insight, January 13, 4:28 PM

Well first of all I'd have to think on the bright side of life on the poor side. And on the other side, the rich side, I'd have to not take things for granted. On the poor side you'd have to use everything to it's limit and not waste a bit. While on the rich side it doesn't really matter that much.

Vivica Juarez's comment, January 13, 5:16 PM
@Sherryn Kottoor made some excellent points about the pictures. In the diagram, it shows the poor vs. the rich. It clearly proves how there is a big difference between the two. The rich have more access to things, that the poor don't. The poor are also not as fortunate when it comes to living and education.

Cycling Culture in Copenhagen

Cycling Culture in Copenhagen | perception and planning | Scoop.it
More than a third of Copenhageners bike to school or work, but it hasn't always been that way -- and city officials say that's not nearly enough.

Biking here was stress-free — quite a contrast to my route to work in Seattle, which one international bike expert recently called “death-defying.”

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 21, 2013 8:34 AM

Forms of transportation are typically seen in terms of technological developments, but the cultural institutions can either support or hinder the diffusion.  In Copenhagen, bikes are as common as vacuum cleaners because of a cultural movement supported by political initiatives to incentivize cycling and promote sustainable transit and active lifestyles.  Read the first part of this series where an American tourist is pleasantly baffled by European cycling culture. 

Sarah Ziolkowski's curator insight, January 1, 3:25 PM

This article applies to the  concepts of culture unit, specifically the diffusion section. It talks about Copenhagen's new cycling culture emerging after the government's efforts to neutralize CO2. 36% of the city's population bikes to work or school, a number they'd like to increase. However, they are still well ahead of The United State's highest percent in Portland, Oregon of 6%. Copenhagen's action could be a model for your community to change to biking.

What's the Difference Between Social Listening, Analytics and Intelligence?

What's the Difference Between Social Listening, Analytics and Intelligence? | perception and planning | Scoop.it

Social listening, social analytics and social intelligence. It’s all the same, right?

 

Well … not quite. We were asked this very question on Twitter, so we thought it worth writing an explanation for all to read.

 

Firstly, no, technically, the terms don’t mean the same thing. However, they are often used interchangeably to discuss activities related to social media monitoring (that’s what we do!)

 

Even more confusingly, whilst they are often used to mean the same thing, they are also used differently by different people and companies within the industry.

 

Here’s an explanation of the differences, and how each term is frequently used: http://www.brandwatch.com/2013/08/whats-the-difference-between-social-analytics/

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising | perception and planning | Scoop.it
Cientistas emitiram um novo alerta para megacidades costeiras de todo o mundo que a ameaça do cedendo terreno é um problema mais imediato do que o aumento do nível do mar causado pelo aquecimento global.

 

Um novo estudo do Instituto de Pesquisa Deltares na Holanda publicado em abril identificou as regiões do globo, onde o nível do solo está a cair 10 vezes mais rápido do que os níveis de água estão a aumentar - com a atividade humana muitas vezes a culpa.

Em Jacarta, a maior cidade da Indonésia, a população cresceu de cerca de meio milhão em 1930 para pouco menos de 10 milhões de hoje, com áreas densamente povoadas cair por pés, tanto quanto seis e meia de água subterrânea é bombeada a partir da Terra para beber .

A mesma prática levou ao nível do solo de Tóquio cai por dois metros antes de novas restrições foram introduzidas, e em Veneza, este tipo de extração só tem agravado os efeitos de abatimento naturais causadas por processos geológicos de longo prazo.

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt?

Where Will The World's Water Conflicts Erupt? | perception and planning | Scoop.it

As the climate shifts, rivers will both flood and dry up more often, according to the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Shortages are especially likely in parts of the world already strapped for water, so political scientists expect feuds will become even more intense. To track disputes worldwide, researchers at Oregon State University spent a decade building a comprehensive database of international exchanges—-both conflicts and alliances—over shared water resources. They found that countries often begin disputes belligerently but ultimately reach peaceful agreements. Says Aaron Wolf, the geographer who leads the project, “For me the really interesting part is how even Arabs and Israelis, Indians and Pakistanis, are able to resolve their differences and find a solution.”

Key insight:  The number of children stopped growing in 1980.  Most of the world is now having only 2 children per family.  The reason why the adult population will continue to grow is just because it takes a generation to balance out the bubble of having more children that survive to grow up and have their own children.

Population

Mackenzie Mcneal :)'s curator insight, August 27, 7:04 AM

Maybe the world  being overpopulated is a good thing. In the video it explains how all of our resources wont run out they will just need to be increased. The way we live and what we live off of is much different than what other people have to live off of.  We have all of these resources to spare that as people bring more children into this world we will have plenty to share. The world is a place to  farm,  to be able to provide for your families,  to live your everyday life without having to worry about dying from diseases. So if the world becomes overpopulated it will force people to move to a better inhabitant.
