Why child poverty concerns us all

Why child poverty concerns us all | ED262 mylineONLINE:  ClassMatters | Scoop.it

Throughout the nation, one in five children live in poverty. In Kentucky, that increases to one in four. That means more than 25% of Kentucky children live in families earning less than $22,350 a year for a family of four. Children growing up in poverty are more likely to face childhood health and behavioral problems and are more likely to face education challenges. They are also more likely to end up poor as adults, creating an unending cycle of poverty in the Commonwealth. Children are our future leaders. Our future doctors, teachers, small business owners, soldiers, policymakers, judges, nurses, police officers… etc. If we don’t help kids grow up safe, healthy, and ready to succeed now – we are jeopardizing the future of our communities, our Commonwealth, and our nation.

Tan Teck Ling's curator insight, February 1, 2013 2:35 AM

This is my insight using See-Think-Wonder routines. 

From what i read in the article, i learnt that one out of five children in the world live in poverty, and they would mostly face childhood problems, behavioral problems or education problems. They also have a high chance of becoming a poor adult and it will cause the same thing to happen to their children, causing the cycle to become never ending.
I think that it would be near impossible to get every child out of poverty as there are many people in the world who thinks only about themselves, and would not give a hand to those in need.
I wonder what the writer would do himself to help out the children in need, would he donate money, or would he just say his concerns and nothing else.

Minor stadiums, major effects? Patterns and sources of redevelopment surrounding minor league baseball stadiums

Minor stadiums, major effects? Patterns and sources of redevelopment surrounding minor league baseball stadiums | ED262 mylineONLINE:  ClassMatters | Scoop.it
"Minor league baseball stadiums are a popular redevelopment anchor in mid-sized to small American cities seeking to revitalise their downtowns. This paper uses a panel study of 16 minor league baseball stadiums built around the time of the 2000 census to understand how they affect immediately adjacent census tracts on measures of residential development one decade later. Regressions show that census tracts near new stadiums have larger increases in their median home prices and new housing construction relative to similar areas in the rest of their cities. However, when compared with a sample of tracts in cities that did not build any stadiums, the significant difference in median housing prices disappears, leaving the effect on new housing construction along with an increase in vacancy rates. Taken together, the findings indicate minor league baseball stadiums can revitalise a city’s downtown, but also act to concentrate redevelopment rather than create growth."

The New Urban Success: How Culture Pays

Urban economists have put forward the idea that cities that are culturally interesting tend to attract “the creative class” and, as a result, end up being economically successful. Yet it is still unclear how economic and cultural dynamics mutually influence each other. By contrast, that has been extensively studied in the case of individuals. Over decades, the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu showed that people's success and their positions in society mainly depend on how much they can spend (their economic capital) and what their interests are (their cultural capital). For the first time, we adapt Bourdieu's framework to the city context. We operationalize a neighborhood's cultural capital in terms of the cultural interests that pictures geo-referenced in the neighborhood tend to express. This is made possible by the mining of what users of the photo-sharing site of Flickr have posted in the cities of London and New York over 5 years. In so doing, we are able to show that economic capital alone does not explain urban development. The combination of cultural capital and economic capital, instead, is more indicative of neighborhood growth in terms of house prices and improvements of socio-economic conditions. Culture pays, but only up to a point as it comes with one of the most vexing urban challenges: that of gentrification.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 10, 3:41 PM

100 years ago, the biggest trends in urbanization showed that the biggest cities in the world were also the most economically powerful cities in the world in core areas.  In the last 50 years, the most obvious change has been the remarkable growth in of the world’s largest cities in the developing world.   

Questions to Ponder: Why has there been such spectacular growth of megacities, especially in the developing world?  How is this map ranking global cities different from a list of the world’s largest cities?  What regional patterns do exist in the 25 most economically powerful cities in the world?  What are the implications of these patterns?
