What is Social Infrastructure?
‘Social infrastructure’ describes the features of social organisation, such as trust, norms and networks that can improve the efficiency of society by facilitating coordinated actions.1 It also encapsulates the concept of culture eg, the values, shared beliefs, customs, behaviours and identity that underpin the way society works and help shape and define who we are as New Zealanders. It is similar to the concepts of civil society and social capital around which there is a burgeoning international literature.

Using Deep Learning and Google Street View to Estimate the Demographic Makeup of the US
The United States spends more than $1B each year on initiatives such as the American
Community Survey (ACS), a labor-intensive door-to-door study that measures
statistics relating to race, gender, education, occupation, unemployment, and other
demographic factors 1
. Although a comprehensive source of data, the lag between
demographic changes and their appearance in the ACS can exceed half a decade. As
digital imagery becomes ubiquitous and machine vision techniques improve, automated
data analysis may provide a cheaper and faster alternative. Here, we present a method
that determines socioeconomic trends from 50 million images of street scenes, gathered
in 200 American cities by Google Street View cars. Using deep learning-based
computer vision techniques, we determined the make, model, and year of all motor
vehicles encountered in particular neighborhoods. Data from this census of motor vehicles,
which enumerated 22M automobiles in total (8% of all automobiles in the US), was
used to accurately estimate income, race, education, and voting patterns, with singleprecinct
resolution. (The average US precinct contains approximately 1000 people.)
The resulting associations are surprisingly simple and powerful. For instance, if the
arXiv:1702.06683v2 [cs.CV] 2 Mar 2017
number of sedans encountered during a 15-minute drive through a city is higher than
the number of pickup trucks, the city is likely to vote for a Democrat during the next
Presidential election (88% chance); otherwise, it is likely to vote Republican (82%).
Our results suggest that automated systems for monitoring demographic trends may
effectively complement labor-intensive approaches, with the potential to detect trends
with fine spatial resolution, in close to real time.

Breitbart -- MALLOCH: The Tragedy of the European Family
'Emmanuel Macron, the newly elected French president, has no children; German chancellor Angela Merkel has no children. British prime minister, Theresa May has no children; Italian prime minister Paolo Gentiloni has no children; Holland’s, prime minister, Mark Rutte, Sweden’s Stefan Löfven, Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel, and Scotland’s, first minster, Nicola Sturgeon — all have no children. -- The list goes on…Latvia’s childless president is Raimonds Vējonis, Lithuania’s childless president is Dalia Grybauskaitė and Romania’s childless president is Klaus Werner Iohannis. And, Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission too, has no children and is family-less. -- So to put it rather bluntly: a grossly disproportionate number of the people making serious decisions about Europe’s future have no direct personal sibling, child or grandchildren’s interests at stake in that future. They are not part of a family and have come to see all their attention focused on one dominant and all-powerful social unit to which they pay obeisance and give their complete and devoted attention: The State. -- ... In the western world, the traditional family continues to crumble and unravel — anyone who defends past tradition (300,000 years of pre-recorded oral and actual history) is ridiculed and rejected as we give up hope and resign in despair to a future without family or its attendant values. Speaking up for the family has almost no constituency and makes one look nostalgic at best and retrograde at worst. Is something larger at stake? Yes, family decline is undermining civilisation itself. -- ...why is an ascendant statist/globalist political culture so hostile to the family? -- The crisis of the family is not simply a result of changed sexual mores or feminist ideology, while they contribute to it. It has far deeper roots. -- The family has lost its social significance because to the State, the family is a threat. As a precursor and basic unit of life it preceded the state and always balanced its interests. -- But in the last fifty years, the welfare state has done everything in its power to break it up. Dividing families, encouraging divorce, supporting abortion, coercing fatherlessness, and building dependencies, the state has not idly watched in the demise of the family structure: it has been the active and primary cause of its very plight. -- As one pundit put it, “the State became master of the family; the result is that the family is now truly the agent, the slave, and the handmaiden of the State.” -- ... Loving life means realising and multiplying the gift of life. The place where that takes place is the family. Aristotle himself taught that family represents nature in its clearest manifestation. He said, “The family is the basic cell of all human society, the primary association of human beings.” -- Europe today needs to turn away from its golden idol of statism which is killing the family and embrace a wiser set of norms, part and parcel of its past, where its leaders again hold high the value of the human family, before it is too late and disappears for good.'

Seven charts that show how the developed world is losing its edge
Savings China’s gross savings (at market exchange rates) are nearly as large as those of the US and EU combined. China saves almost half of its national income. This extraordinarily high share is likely to fall but that decline is set to be gradual, since Chinese households are likely to remain frugal and the share of profits in national income is likely to remain high.

80% of the US had no real increase in income 2005 to 2012-2014

The Residential segregation of detailed Hispanic and Asian Groups in the United States: 1980-2010
Racial and ethnic diversity continues to grow in communities across the United States, raising questions about the extent to which different ethnic groups will become residentially integrated.
While a number of studies have examined the residential patterns of pan-ethnic groups, our goal is to examine the segregation of several Asian and Hispanic ethnic groups – Cubans, Dominicans, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Salvadorans, Asian Indians, Chinese, Filipinos, Japanese, Koreans, and Vietnamese. We gauge the segregation of each group from several alternative reference groups using two measures over the 1980 to 2010 period.
We find that the dissimilarity of Hispanics and Asians from other groups generally held steady or declined, though, because most Hispanic and Asian groups are growing, interaction with Whites also often declined. Our analyses also indicate that pan-ethnic segregation indexes do not always capture the experience of specific groups. Among Hispanics, Mexicans are typically less residentially segregated (as measured using the dissimilarity index) from Whites, Blacks, Asians, and other Hispanics than are other Hispanic-origin groups. Among Asian ethnic groups, Japanese and Filipinos tend to have lower levels of dissimilarity from Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics than other Asian groups. Examining different dimensions of segregation also indicates that dissimilarity scores alone often do not capture to what extent various ethnic groups are actually sharing neighborhoods with each other. Finally, color lines vary across groups in some

Youth Movement: Gen Z Boasts the Largest, Most Diverse Media Users Yet
While Millennials continue to grab headlines for their tech-savvy penchant for adopting new technologies and their unique media behaviors, the first-quarter 2017 Nielsen Total Audience Report sheds some much-needed light on the NEXT generation of consumers—Generation Z—as well as how different generations adopt and use established and nascent devices and platforms.

Of note, Generation Z and Millennials now make up nearly half (48%) of the overall U.S. generational composition, an insight of even larger importance as the youngest generation begins to mature and enter the workplace.
