UK health body calls for Copenhagen-style bike-friendly streets | Society | The Guardian
NICE - National Institute for Health and Care Excellence says cyclists and pedestrians should get priority [...] Physical inactivity is responsible for one in six UK deaths, which is as many as caused by smoking. It is estimated to cost the UK £7.4bn annually, which includes £0.9bn in NHS costs.

Build it and they will come? Why Britain's 1960s cycling revolution flopped | Cities | The Guardian
Too easy to drive [ disincentivise driving, incentivise cycling ] The borough council’s cycle strategy – not updated since 2002 – conveys no doubt as to why cycle usage is so low: “Stevenage has a fast, high-capacity road system, which makes it easy to make journeys by car. Residents have largely been insulated from the effects of traffic growth and congestion and generally there is little incentive for people to use modes other than the private car … [The] propensity to cycle [appears to] depend on factors other than the existence of purpose-built facilities.”

Claxton was a regular user of the cycleways he had created. “I didn’t do my cycleways for cyclists,” he told an environmental magazine in 1977. “I did them for people.”

Konzept gegen Wohnungsnot: Höher, enger, dichter
In deutschen Großstädten fehlen Wohnungen und freie Flächen. Die sogenannte "Nachverdichtung" könnte die Wohnungsnot mindern. Das Potenzial ist groß - doch Anwohner sind oft alles andere als begeistert. [ ... In ballungsgebieten ...] 2030 würden dann bereits eine Million Wohnungen fehlen. [...] Das gelingt nicht immer. Wird zu stark verdichtet, geht das zulasten der Wohnqualität - die Menschen leiden unter mehr Lärm und Verkehr, haben weniger Freizeitflächen in ihrer Umgebung. Entstehen mehrheitlich Eigentums- oder teure Mietwohnungen, ist der neue Wohnraum für viele nicht bezahlbar - das beschleunigt die Gentrifizierung. [... Active change in Planning Laws to allow new types of developments ... ] Die Bundesregierung unterstützt Nachverdichtung, indem sie Kommunen zum Beispiel mehr Spielräume für die Bebauung von Innenstadtflächen einräumt.

Life and death in the App Store | The Verge
[ land grab and winner takes all environment, the long-tail is not what it was supposed to be promised by some ] 'the app store resembles now a lottery' [...] Today, profiting from the App Store most often requires a mix of in-app purchases, subscriptions, and advertising. [...] Meanwhile, a fatigue is setting in among customers. There are now more than 1.5 million apps in the App Store (Android users have 1.6 million to choose from), but by 2014, the majority of Americans were downloading zero apps per month. And it turns out people simply don’t use most of the apps they do download. According to ComScore, the average person spends 80 percent of their time on mobile devices using only three apps.

UK air pollution 'linked to 40,000 early deaths a year' - BBC News
Air pollution is contributing to about 40,000 early deaths a year in the UK, the Royal Colleges of Physicians and Paediatrics and Child Health have said. [...] While the pollutants have changed over time - from coal soot to diesel vehicle emissions - the health risks remain. Tobacco still poses the biggest indoor threat, but wood-burning stoves, spray deodorants, cleaning products, air fresheners and fly spray contribute. Mould and mildew in poorly ventilated rooms can also cause illness. [...] "As NHS costs continue to escalate due to poor public health - asthma alone costs the NHS an estimated £1bn a year - it is essential that policy makers consider the effects of long-term exposure on our children and the public purse," he said. Prof Grigg said the public could also help by: walking, cycling or taking the bus or train instead of driving, when possible keeping gas appliances and solid fuel burners in good repair making homes more energy efficient

Scientists: air pollution led to more than 5.5 million premature deaths in 2013 | Environment | The Guardian
“Air pollution is the fourth-highest risk factor for death globally and by far the leading environmental risk factor for disease,” said Michael Brauer, a researcher from the University of British Columbia. Brauer said air pollution contributed to heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema and acute infections. He and his colleagues compared the problem in Asia to the conditions under centuries of industrial revolution in the US and Europe: massive economic growth smothered by clouds of toxic matter in the air. [... COAL ...] “Even in the most clean scenario in 2030,” Ma said, China’s growing and ageing population will still suffer 990,000 to 1.3 million deaths a year.

Heathrow Airport expansion: Why the renewed delay? - BBC News
A decision whether to build a third runway at Heathrow Airport has been officially delayed until at least next summer, the government has announced. This will mean yet another review of the arguments for and against a third runway at Heathrow, in west London - or the alternative: a second runway at Gatwick, directly to the south of London. Whatever decision the government eventually takes is likely to prove controversial - both among those arguing for more airport capacity as quickly as possible if the UK economy is not to suffer, and among those arguing that the drawbacks of expanding Heathrow would outweigh any benefits. Essentially it comes down to politics and the environment. //&! bit.ly/1IJaJs5 &! bit.ly/1STglAs - doesn't make sense on several grounds.

Cycling: three-quarters of Britons support more spending on bike use | Environment | The Guardian
[ where is the bike lobby here? its a bn dollar business. ] Biggest ever survey on subject says people would like government to spend almost seven times more on bike infrastructure than it does now. [...] Currently, about 1% to 2% of all trips in the UK are made by bike, as against figures of 25% or more in some nations, such as the Netherlands. Activists argue that more bike use would greatly help combat the ongoing health crisis caused by physical inactivity, as well as reducing vehicle pollution, among other benefits. “The message from the public couldn’t be clearer: there’s a desire to cycle more, but that a lack of safe places to ride bikes is off ­putting,” said Jason Torrance, policy director at Sustrans. [...] “Physical inactivity, congestion and declining air quality cost our economy billions. Governments must act to secure a greater share of current transport investment for cycling and walking.”

Digitaler Burnout: "Zu viel Smartphone macht unglücklich" - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ portion USE time! 3x1hr? ] Study: Wir beschäftigen uns bis zu drei Stunden am Tag mit dem Smartphone. Der Leiter der Studie zieht daraus bedenkliche Schlüsse - und fordert eine digitale Diät. [...] Der Experte geht davon aus, dass beim Scrollen über den Handyscreen die gleichen Stoffwechselvorgänge im Gehirn aktiviert werden wie bei Drogensüchtigen. Die ständige Kommunikation mit Freunden oder Arbeitskollegen über soziale Medien wie Facebook scheine dabei das größte Suchtpotenzial auszumachen. "Denn dort erhalten wir Aufmerksamkeit und Anerkennung", so te Wildt. [...] "Das Gehirn ist durch den Überfluss an Informationen und Kommunikation komplett überlastet", sagt Markowetz. Im schlimmsten Fall führt das schließlich zum Burnout, wie ihn Miriam Meckel, Chefredakteurin der "Wirtschaftswoche" oder die "Huffington Post"-Gründerin Arianna Huffington erlebt haben. Die beiden Karrierefrauen machten die Kommunikationsüberlastung mitverantwortlich für ihren Zusammenbruch.

Scotland's environment in 'serious trouble' - BBC News
The report is a follow up to the 2013 State Of Nature UK-wide report, which warned that 60% of 3,148 species studied had declined in past 50 years, and 31% had declined strongly. More than one in 10 of all species assessed were under threat of disappearing from the UK's shores altogether. [...] "As NGOs, we naturally asked ourselves 'What should be done about that?' "This report seeks to answer that question, and is based on a year's interactive research with a wide range of experts - both in wildlife ecology and in policy development and delivery. "The conclusion is not one of despair, but we must act with urgency to create a common course to save wildlife and the natural environment."

The health implications of the diesel scandal - BBC News
[ http://www.spiegel.de/thema/abgasaffaere_bei_volkswagen/ ] The diesel scandal started as a worry for car owners. Yet, according to Prof Alistair Lewis, an air pollution expert at the University of York, "it is overwhelmingly a health story". The costs of not doing more to tackle air pollution can be measured in "thousands of deaths and billions of pounds, all passed on to the taxpayer", he says. "The real costs here are the ones the taxpayer picks up in terms of providing extra healthcare," he explains. "The only reason we measure NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) and particulates is because they are harmful to health." //&! youtu.be/HG8Kpfs4ZYs - Krank dank VW?

Jörg Kachelmann: Kommentar zum Urteil von Gisela Friedrichsen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Springer-Konzern soll eine Rekordentschädigung an Jörg Kachelmann zahlen - gut so. Kachelmanns Verletzungen werden davon zwar nicht heilen. Boulevardmedien aber werden nun vorsichtiger sein, bevor sie Verleumdungskampagnen starten. [...] die Verletzungen, die auch die Justiz Kachelmann zugefügt hat, heilen nicht. Man denke nur an den unsäglichen Prozess vor dem Landgericht Mannheim, das, obwohl massive Zweifel an der Aussage des angeblichen Opfers bestanden, im Sexualleben des Angeklagten herumwühlte, als handle es sich bei ihm um den gefährlichsten Triebtäter Deutschlands überhaupt. [...] Menschen, denen ihr "gutes Recht" versagt blieb, entwickeln sich oft zu Querulanten und gehen ihrer Umwelt auf die Nerven, was ihr Unglück noch steigert.

He recently moved into a house in Clapton, east London, with three other people in their 20s to 40s. He said: “The most affordable one-bed flat I was shown was £1,200 a month, and it was worse than a squat. The agent tried telling me it was a bargain.” //&! ability to get interest only loan is unbelievable.

800-Pound Publishing Gorilla Facebook Barges Back Into Blogging With “Notes” | TechCrunch
Facebook’s advantage is its distribution. The same weapon it’s used to barge into web publishing with Instant Articles and video hosting with its auto-play clips could help it invade blogging. It’s similar to how LinkedIn used its natural traffic to launch a professional-minded publishing network. People will write where they get an audience. If that’s Facebook, they’ll publish there. And while Twitter doesn’t discriminate, showing every post to everyone, Facebook’s filtered feed shows you what it thinks you’ll actually consume [and what's in their best own interest, keeping you on FB, favouring native content of link-out content]. [ step by step, FB is productizing - offering more to advertisers how to reach their user base, leverage its huge user base, Big Data, users data, the ceiling for FB earnings is far off! and thus its market cap (valuation). could nearly double again from its 250bn. it doubled in 5 years from IPO slump. ] // &! wrd.cm/1Pw2v5w

Networks and the Nature of the Firm — The WTF Economy — Medium
“publish, then filter” - Clay Shirky. >> It is fundamentally an open-ended network in which filtering and curation (otherwise known as “management”) happens largely after the fact. [ Twitter lacks a management/curation feature, has to overcome its once cheered differentiator of no curating nor using algorithms to make sense of the noise one subscribed to. ] [...] [ Replacing knowledgeable workers, sales person, support staff, with software. ] One way to think about the new generation of on-demand companies, such as Uber, Lyft, and Airbnb, is that they are networked platforms for physical world services, which are bringing fragmented industries into the 21st century in the same way that ecommerce has transformed retail.

Creative young Brits are quitting London for affordable Berlin | World news | The Guardian
More and more burnt-out Londoners are embracing the laid-back cool – and much lower cost of living – of the German capital [...] Her decision to leave London was mainly a financial one. “I was working seven days a week and paying £800 for a shared flat in Lewisham. We kept moving further and further into south-east London, until I felt I needed to leave entirely. I’m part of a big exodus; I know many people who have moved from east London to south-east London and then to Berlin. [...] Agora is one of many “co-working hubs” that have sprung up in the city, created for the ever-growing startup community (by 2020 an estimated 100,000 jobs are set to be generated by Berlin startups). Agora is one of many expat bubbles, catering to the ever-growing number of digital nomads. [...] I was just exhausted all the time. You go home to your expensive flat, but end up just sleeping in it, and then go back to work. There’s just more time here.” [...] In London, its office work, bars, sleep, repeat.

Autism in the workplace: 'Always thought you were a bit weird' | Social Care Network | The Guardian
According to the National Autistic Society just 15% of people on the spectrum are in full time work, and this figure may not take account of those like me who manage to stay in work but never stay anywhere long, driven away by social overkill. And yet it is being recognised that autism can bring some very useful skills to the work table – focus, attention to detail and commitment being just a few. A small number of companies have recognised this and are actively seeking these skills, especially in technological fields. In return, they are prepared to accommodate the social and sensory difficulties of autism – but many employers have yet to catch on that a few reasonable adjustments can make a huge difference to whether a potentially excellent worker stays or goes. [...] I appreciate that people will at least try to give me warning of changes ahead of time ...

These are the articles in which, to quote John Gruber, we “Pando the hell out of a story.” Uber, Secret, the Techtopus -- regular readers know the hall of fame. Likewise our long-form profiles of inspiring entrepreneurs, PandoMonthly event series, and curve-ball regulars like The War Nerd and Brad Jonas’ brilliant illustrations. [...] By contrast, although we always try to avoid publishing linkbait and pure opinion, some of the posts which on the previous model might have been great for search traffic or guilty clicks have fallen off a cliff under the new model. Further proof that the high-traffic snackable content that’s good for advertisers isn’t necessarily valued by readers.

Students 'cannot multi-task with mobiles and study' - BBC News
Researchers found that students sending and receiving messages while studying scored lower test results and were less effective at tasks such as note taking. The study examined how a generation of "voracious texters" might be affected by so many online distractions. It found that when students did not use mobiles, they were better at being able to recall information. [...] The study, Mobile Phones in the Classroom: Examining the Effects of Texting, Twitter, and Message Content on Student Learning, carried out a series of tests with 145 undergraduates. [...] "It is a common occurrence to observe students who are physically present, yet mentally preoccupied by non-course-related material on their mobile devices. "As mobile devices have deeply saturated the college student population, this problem will likely continue to pose a significant obstacle," says the study, by Jeffrey Kuznekoff, Stevie Munz and Scott Titsworth. // life hack = focus 100% without distractions, opp for procrasti

Apple reveals new Music app to rival Spotify - BBC News
Apple has announced a new app that combines a streaming song and music video library, an internet radio station and a way for artists to share unreleased tracks and other material. It includes a recommendation system that uses both human curators and computer algorithms to suggest songs. [...] "Apple is arriving late to the music streaming business, due in part to Steve Jobs' refusal to believe that music subscription services would ever work," said James McQuivey from the Forrester consultancy. But, he added, that he believed it would catch up with market leader Spotify's 15 million paying subscribers in less than a year. Another analyst suggested Apple might face a challenge explaining all the features on offer. "Apple Music is a complex mix of services including music streaming, live radio, music discovery and social interaction with artists, [...] three month free subscription [ $9.99 (£6.50)] and family bundle [14.99 up to 6 ppl] [...] Beats 1 [is free] // apple.co/1IrFWfp

Include Snapchat (Discover, Linkedin (Pulse). >> All gained sized, thus noise, people gaming the system, ... thus owner changes rules and system for his/her advantage and gain (profit maximization). // // even content curators (by hand) can be 1/2 noise. And the summaries are just shorter bouts of noise to scan through (medium.com, Mahalo) - its like joining the dark force. // Things come and go in waves/trends; thus the next wave/trend could be self-published long-form niche content partially free (The Information, ebooks, Pando) which are remarkable (Seth Godin) // snacking is SO western lifestyle, even for information/news - is lowering productivity/focus

The 'Blue Dress' And The Incredible Scalability Of Content -SVW
The traditional media industry is a people-based business and it usually requires additional people to produce additional media. It's not scalable in the same way as a software-based business, by adding more machines. However, there is a very important distinction about a media business that is usually missed:  Content is near infinitely scalable on the Internet. The Internet was built to scale content in seconds. Other people's servers will gladly carry your content to wherever the Internet ends -- for free! With one story you can potentially imprint the entire Internet! Try matching that performance with a servers and software business, for example, offering a web service.  Back in 2006 I cheekily dubbed this effect: Foremski's First Law of New Media -- Content is infinitely scalable.  I'll tell you the Second Law in a future post!

Facebook thinks you’re too dumb to realize its scientific papers are really just PR | PandoDaily
According to recent studies, almost half of all web-using adults — and 88 percent of Millennials — use Facebook to find news. [...] But this research paper is less a piece of objective scientific inquiry and more the work of corporate-commissioned data tricksters — a rancid pile of pro-Facebook propaganda that derives and frames its conclusions with the sole purpose of making Facebook look good. This isn’t science. It’s PR. [...] the fact that Facebook itself is the one absolving Facebook of damaging public discourse, demands greater scrutiny. And on closer examination, much of the data and assumptions that informed the researchers’ conclusions fail to qualify as sound scientific inquiry. [...] If politically polarized users want politically polarized content, Facebook won’t disappoint them. [...] [SV &its Cheerleader squads in form of bloggosphere] will give lousy corporate data research like a pass — is still exponentially more credible than a rewritten press release at Techcrunch.

Naval Ravikant to VCs: “You can lie to your LPs, but don’t lie to yourselves” | PandoDaily
“There was so much innovation being thrown around—moveable carry, geographic portfolio, unbundling and more. Many were coming up to me later saying the ideas were flying at them too fast. That’s exactly what’s happening in the market.” Even if you don’t know what those terms mean, the important takeaway is that even the stodgiest VCs are going to have to start acting more like the entrepreneurs they serve because the market is only getting more competitive with the ways to fund becoming far more varied and “hackable.” [and add Corporate Accelerators, Incubators and Venture Funds] [...] restrictions LPs put on funds: things like how much you can invest, what percentage of a fund you can invest in follow on rounds of existing companies, what sector you invest in, whether you can invest personally if the fund invests as a group, etc.
