SimCities: Designing Smart Cities through Data-Driven Simulation | Neighborhood Economics | Scoop.it
With the help of big data and analytics, urban planners can now use simulations to anticipate the impact of urban development programs. Using these tools, cities can become more sustainable and strategic, while the planning processes become ever more inclusive.

Introduction to Focus Issue: Complex Dynamics in Networks, Multilayered Structures and Systems

In the last years, network scientists have directed their interest to the multi-layer character of real-world systems, and explicitly considered the structural and dynamical organization of graphs made of diverse layers between its constituents. Most complex systems include multiple subsystems and layers of connectivity and, in many cases, the interdependent components of systems interact through many different channels. Such a new perspective is indeed found to be the adequate representation for a wealth of features exhibited by networked systems in the real world. The contributions presented in this Focus Issue cover, from different points of view, the many achievements and still open questions in the field of multi-layer networks, such as: new frameworks and structures to represent and analyze heterogeneous complex systems, different aspects related to synchronization and centrality of complex networks, interplay between layers, and applications to logistic, biological, social, and technological fields.

Swiss deny citizenship to Muslim girls who balked at swimming with boys

Swiss deny citizenship to Muslim girls who balked at swimming with boys | Neighborhood Economics | Scoop.it

"In the latest move to deny citizenship to those who balk at Swiss culture, authorities rejected the naturalization application of two Muslim girls who refused to take school swimming lessons because boys were present. In Switzerland, unlike in the United States and many other countries, integration into society is more important for naturalization than knowledge of national history or politics. Candidates for citizenship must prove that they are well assimilated in their communities and respect local customs and traditions."

Peyton Barnes's curator insight, February 23, 2017 7:05 PM
This article really shows how bothered we get when we see others from different cultures. In class, we talked about how easy it is to be weirded out by people from different backgrounds. This reading is absolutely crazy to me, they actually fined the students for what they believe in. Yes, it is a different country than America but I mean seriously.

This relates to our class by the insight of other cultures hardships. These people were not accepted because of their customs.
Anthony Neely's curator insight, March 13, 2017 10:15 AM
This relates to culture because it shows how certain peoples belief are not excepted in other place and can cause contoversy other the topic. I believe this is not a way to treat people based in culture or religious beliefs

Nice organisms finish first: Why cooperators always win in the long run

Nice organisms finish first: Why cooperators always win in the long run | Neighborhood Economics | Scoop.it
Communication is critical for cooperation; we think communication is the reason cooperation occurs. It's generally believed that there are five independent mechanisms that foster cooperation. But these mechanisms are really just ways to ensure that cooperators play mostly with other cooperators and avoid all others. Communication is a universal way to achieve that.

Generalizing Moore

Over the past few years, several independent teams of researchers have noticed something surprising in historical data on a broad set of technologies. Everyone, of course, knows about Moore's Law — for decades, the density of transistors on integrated circuits has doubled every two years, with computational speed advancing even faster. This spectacular record of improvement shows up in just about any metric. Much less known, however, is that this pattern of exponential advance isn't actually limited to electronics; it applies just as well to technologies ranging from cars or batteries to beer or nuclear power.

The Milton Friedman Doctrine Is Wrong. Here's How to Rethink the Corporation

The Milton Friedman Doctrine Is Wrong. Here's How to Rethink the Corporation | Neighborhood Economics | Scoop.it

We won’t fix the problem until we address the nature of the corporation.

 

Imagine what becomes possible when we start to understand that executives and managers are not strictly beholden to shareholders—who hold their shares for an average of four months—and share prices.

 

When executives and directors are free to consider a range of stakeholders—workers, suppliers, creditors, customers, shareholders, and the community in which they’re based—in managing a company, it inherently changes their time horizon from the next quarter to the next decade or quarter-century and beyond, because most of these stakeholders have deeper investments in the company...

This is an important conversation to have. Most corporations follow a purely short-term financial path to increasing "shareholder value", but that is a highly destructive path.

Dealing with sinking cities and a risky future

Dealing with sinking cities and a risky future | Neighborhood Economics | Scoop.it
Just consider a simple forecast. Without action, parts of Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok and numerous other coastal cities around the globe will continue to sink faster than the sea level rises.

We already know our coastal cities are under threat from rising sea levels, driven by climate change. Its estimated global sea-level rise of up to 0.6 meters this century will increase disaster risk significantly in coastal areas.

Many coastal cities and people are already among the most populous in the world and have a huge amount of infrastructure exposed to coastal flooding, high tides, and storm surges. And the rapidly growing population in some of the cities is driving up risk. Add in the face of changing coastal hazards driven by climate change, cities such as Mumbai, Karachi, Jakarta, and Lagos are among key areas cited in a new report on evolving disaster risk.

How to Measure Culture Change Without Killing It

How to Measure Culture Change Without Killing It | Neighborhood Economics | Scoop.it
In a classic article for the Journal for Strategic Performance Measurement, Margaret Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers explain that behaviors – “commitment, focus, teamwork, learning, quality”(...), people paying “attention to those things that contribute to performance (...) are never produced by measurement. They are performance capabilities that emerge as people feel connected to their work and to each other. They are capacities that emerge as colleagues develop a shared sense of what they hope to create together (...). Each of these qualities and behaviors (...) is a choice that people make”. However, “measurement is critical” and the authors provide some insightful perspectives on design criteria for measure processes.
