America's "greenest street" provides a blueprint for sustainable urban development

America's "greenest street" provides a blueprint for sustainable urban development | scatol8® | Scoop.it

A streetscape that includes natural landscaping, bicycle lanes, wind powered lighting, storm water diversion for irrigation, drought-resistant native plants and innovative “smog-eating” concrete has earned Cermak road in Chicago the title of “greenest Street in America” according to the Chicago Department of Transport (CDOT).


Opened in October 2012, the first phase two mile stretch is part of the Blue Island/Cermak Sustainable Streetscape project which was introduced in 2009 with the aim of reducing overall energy usage by 42 percent.

Paint By Particle: A Beautiful Climate Model By NASA

Paint By Particle: A Beautiful Climate Model By NASA | scatol8® | Scoop.it
With all of the satellites in our skies, NASA collects up to 30 million observations of the Earth each day.
But it is only when these observations are layered into one picture, called climate modeling, that we get to see the wispy beauty of our atmosphere. The video below, titled Paint By Particle, was published by NASAexplore and allows us to “watch as dust and sea salt swirl inside cyclones, carbon bursts from fires, sulfate streams from volcanoes—and see how these aerosols paint the modeled world.” Enjoy!

Start With a Business Model, Not a Business Plan - Steve Blank @sgBlank

Start With a Business Model, Not a Business Plan - Steve Blank @sgBlank | scatol8® | Scoop.it

   Where did the idea that startups write business plans come from? In the early days of venture capital, investors and entrepreneurs were familiar with the format of business plans from large companies and adopted it for startups. Without much thought it has been used ever since.

 

   A business plan is the execution document that existing companies write when planning product-line extensions where customer, market and product features are known. The plan is an operating document describes the execution strategy for addressing these “knowns.”

   A startup is notabout executing a series of knowns. Most startups are facing a series of unknowns – unknown customer segments, unknown customer needs, unknown product feature set, etc.That means that writing a static business plan first adds no value to starting a company, as the plan does not represent the iterative nature of the search for the model.
