“The unhappy city contains a happy city unaware of its own existence,” wrote Italo Calvino in his masterpiece Invisible Cities. Beyond designing the Ecole Normale Supérieure Cachan in Paris and the Columbia University Campus Plan in New York City, architect Renzo Piano has spent last year looking for fragments of happy cities around Italian suburbs with a team of six young architects.
The form of the self-organisation of the global working classes needs to be well grounded, transnational, and global at the same time. It needs to be open and welcoming to all working people, meaning free to enter, criticize, leave, or fork. It needs to be designed as modularly integrated organized networks of social – environmental – cultural – informational – sexual so on justice movements and issue focused activists. Adoptable principles, the ‘code’, and process protocols can be pre-determined, yet the code and proocols and processes them selves has to be well documented, totally open to local, workplace, neighbourhood, issue based, activists or other sort of political collectives composed of peer nodes. It is in a way similar to the form of Anonymous, Occupy or other decentralized forms of network movements, but with more awareness on the structure and openness of the working and governing protocols. So in between these and FLOSS projects, or grassroots and worker cooperatives. It sould not be based on membership and fee. It should not be organized by intellectual activists from out side in, and from top down towards the working class. With an opposite perspective, it should be designed by volunteer participation based on self-governing principles. It should be able to put forward creative, assertive and effective direct non-violent mass action, which makes fun of and ridicule the target. Active peer to peer self-learninig should be the core cultural production and learning principle, instead of having teachers who must show the right and enlightented road to the candidate working class members, who needs to get a self-consciousness. Instead a global and networked labour union should be providing working people with the access to the tools, resources and key networks that would make self- empowerment easily possible. By linking spaces where continious open exchanges take place and carry the energy from one space to other. Utilizing How to(s), Do it Yourself and Do it With Others guides, in online and real world context, by FLOSS communication tools as well as mass-action tactics it would replace top down (issue-anger-action) organizing model, which would allow self-articulation, respectful and collaborative working praxis by harmonized through peer to peer digital communication -where possible and desirable, as well as face to face and secure meetings, cultural and recreational events cultural events. It should be collaboraing with other organizations, creative and productive projects that undermines capitalist mode of production and develop the algorithms and codes of alternative modes, as operating systems that could replace capitalism. Such global network needs to grow by linking existing radical networks groups of activists, hackers, organizers, makers, DIY groups, squatters, eco-willages, diggers, immigrants, asylum seekers, solidarity networks, and so on. In a way all nodes could associate with the globally networked ties, while keeping their autonomy.
A select few countries have been responsible for the majority of the world's CO2 emissions since the '70s.
To know the biggest CO2 spewers in recent history, have a look at these animated maps from the Paris-based data designer "JeremY Boy." They show the countries responsible for the bulk of emissions since 1971, with pulsating, foul-looking clouds each representing 300 million tonnes of C02. Note that some countries are left blank due to missing or incomplete information (certain governments don't accurately track bunker fuels, for instance), and that the data refers only to emissions from burning fossil fuels, not smaller sources like incinerating waste materials.

The recent identification of a long-theorized particle is strong evidence of a new form of matter: the Tetraquark.
With the existence of tetraquarks, it is possible for neutrons within the core to interact strongly enough to create tetraquarks. This could even lead to the production of pentaquarks and hexaquarks, or even that quarks could interact individually without being bound into color neutral particles. This would produce a hypothetical object known as a quark star.
La actual crisis económica y social que estamos padeciendo actualmente en España ha causado un retroceso notable en los principales indicadores de pobreza, igualdad y empleo.
