Asie(s)'s curator insight, November 23, 2014 10:23 PM

A good overview on the matter!

Kevin Barker's curator insight, November 25, 2014 8:20 AM

A great primer for discussions over border disputes.  In this modern geopolitical climate, some of these claims can seem aggressive to say the least.  The strategies/responses can also be very interesting when military options are put aside.

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, November 25, 2014 12:36 PM

I was looking at the disputes between the Paracel Islands, the Spratly Islands, and the Scarborough Shoal. What I notices with all oft he disputes, the land being fought over is all claimed by China but the land location itself is all closer to the country china is disputing it over. For the Paracel Islands, China and Vietnam are in dispute especially after China put 2 oil rigs by their land. The other dispute between the Spratly Islands, China and the Philippines each claim entire ownership of the lands but Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei all claim some part of the islands as well. For the Scarborough Shoal, it is a lot closer to the Philippines than it is to China but China claims it as their own since they discovered the land. Now china has restricted access to the island following a standoff.

Open Data? In 20 domande il contributo alla diffusione dei dati aperti per il territorio

Open Data? In 20 domande il contributo alla diffusione dei dati aperti per il territorio | SmartPlanet DIALOGUE | Scoop.it

La Provincia di Bologna, in collaborazione con il Coordinamento Agende 21 Locali e la Regione Emilia-Romagna, ha avviato un laboratorio pilota per sperimentare l’apertura dei dati contenuti negli strumenti di pianificazione territoriale e definire procedure e indicazioni utili ad altri enti interessati a rendere aperto il patrimonio informatico dei propri piani. All’interno di questo progetto, gestito da un gruppo di lavoro intersettoriale, sono stati organizzati alcuni momenti di confronto con tecnici ed esperti. Durante gli incontri sono emerse domande e dubbi le cui risposte sono state raccolte in questo primo Quaderno. Il documento intende introdurre il mondo degli Open Data in termini generali fornendo una chiave di lettura semplice e funzionale alle esigenze delle Pubbliche Amministrazioni: rispondendo a 20 domande viene fornita una panoramica della normativa e delle caratteristiche degli Open Data e alcune informazioni di base utili per avviare un percorso all’interno dell’ente pubblico.

To hit fossil fuel firms where it hurts, support divestment! | SmartPlanet DIALOGUE | Scoop.it
Fossil fuel companies are a risky investment thanks to the 2.8 trillion tonnes of 'unburnable' carbon in their reserves, writes Franklin Ginn. But there's an even stronger reason to support fossil fuel divestment: to erode their political power, which they use to block progress to a sustainable, low carbon future.

Better Ways to Learn

Better Ways to Learn | SmartPlanet DIALOGUE | Scoop.it

Does a good grade always mean a student has learned the material? And does a bad grade mean a student just needs to study more?

In the new book “How We Learn: The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens” (Random House), Benedict Carey, a science reporter for The New York Times, challenges the notion that a high test score equals true learning. He argues that although a good grade may be achieved in the short term by cramming for an exam, chances are that most of the information will be quickly lost. Indeed, he argues, most students probably don’t need

Sustainability and Marketing Closer Together Sustainable Brands (10 Forces)

Sustainability and Marketing Closer Together Sustainable Brands (10 Forces) | SmartPlanet DIALOGUE | Scoop.it

I often hear skeptical commentary claiming that “Sustainability can’t scale enough, because Marketing is not cooperating” or that “Marketing really does want to help, but, boy, Sustainability’s demands and specifications are simply too much.” Well, realistically, both of those are indeed often the case … until one day, they are not anymore. What gives me confidence that this transition toward properly aligning Sustainability and Marketing is achievable? Many things — but lately, 10 specific forc

Siete pronti per i droni urbani?

Siete pronti per i droni urbani? | SmartPlanet DIALOGUE | Scoop.it

Se nell’attuale immaginario collettivo la parola drone rimanda ancora al mondo militare, prepariamoci a un imminente nuovo orizzonte in cui contestualizzarla: non manca poi così tanto perché i droni civili diventino ingrediente costitutivo di scenari urbani che abitiamo. Insieme al prof. Marcello Chiaberge, responsabile del progetto Fly4SmartCity del Politecnico di Torino, ci siamo addentrati nel mondo degli unmanned aerial vehicle. Partendo dalla natura strutturale di questi velivoli a pilotaggio remoto ci siamo spinti verso scenari futuri, immaginando le possibili applicazioni a servizio delle città che già lasciano intravedere.

"Costruiamo il futuro, rammendiamo l'Italia!"

"Costruiamo il futuro, rammendiamo l'Italia!" | SmartPlanet DIALOGUE | Scoop.it

Le infrastrutture sono state il principale veicolo di sviluppo del nostro Paese nei 50 anni che abbiamo alle spalle. L’attuale congiuntura rende necessario un profondo cambiamento nell’agenda di politica economica della UE che veda proprio nelle infrastrutture, nelle città, nella riqualificazione del costruito e delle periferie, nella banda larga e nelle tecnologie abilitanti gli assi strategici su cui puntare. Gli elementi in gioco e le opportunità sono numerosi a partire dai 300 miliardi di euro annunciati a giugno dal piano di investimento del neo presidente della Commissione europea Jean-Claude Junker, ma devono poter poggiare su cambiamenti di impostazione nella politica europea e nazionale. Il prossimo Piano nazionale delle comunità intelligenti (Pnci) dovrà quindi essere accompagnato da una serie di interventi più strutturali che rafforzino il tessuto industriale e produttivo: dall’introduzione di elementi di flessibilità nel patto di stabilità europeo e interno alla creazione del mercato digitale unico europeo; dal consolidamento del settore industriale europeo attraverso un industrial compact, all’individuazione di un piano housing.

La politica nazionale è pronta a farsi carico delle istanze del tessuto produttivo e a rispondere concretamente?
