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.

Peanut allergy theory backed up by new research - BBC News
The effects of eating peanut products as a baby to avoid the risk of allergy have been backed up by new research. In 2015, a study claimed early exposure to peanut products could cut the risk of allergy by 80%. Now researchers say "long-lasting" allergy protection can be sustained - even when the snacks are later avoided for a year. [...] "I believe that this fear of food allergy has become a self-fulfilling prophecy, because the food is excluded from the diet and, as a result, the child fails to develop tolerance," he told the BBC News website. The researchers used the same children who took part in the 2015 study - half of whom had been given peanut snacks as a baby while the remainder had been fed on a diet of breast milk alone. //&! bit.ly/1SoBDsm

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.

Are cities the new countries? - BBC News
Do big cities have more in common with each other than with the rest of their own countries? Are there meaningful comparisons between cities such as New York, London and Shanghai, rather than between nation states? That is the suggestion of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Such mega-conurbations have bigger populations and economies than many individual countries - and the think tank argues that they face many similar challenges, whether it is in transport, housing, security, jobs, migration or education.

Robert Reich - Timeline Photos
In some cities – San Francisco, Seattle, Boston, New York – it’s 40 to 50 percent. What’s the solution? Part of it is better public transportation – so people can live further away from where they work, in affordable housing. But rather than invest more in public transportation, America is disinvesting. We're spending a smaller percentage of our GDP on public transit now than at any time since World War II. Why? Ask Republicans in Congress and in state legislatures.

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.”

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?

Concern over hidden diesel pollutant - BBC News
Atmospheric levels of a little known by-product from diesel engines are up 70 times higher than expected according to a study. Researchers found that long-chain hydrocarbons are significantly under-reported in car manufacturers' data. These hydrocarbons are a key component of two of the worst air pollutants, ozone and particulate matter. The authors believe these "hidden" emissions are having a large impact on air quality in cities like London. The exhaust pipes of diesel-fuelled trucks and cars produce an array of emissions that have different impacts on the air that people breathe. Complicated mixture The nitrogen dioxide and particles that are emitted from burning diesel have a direct impact on human health in cities. But diesel also contains more complex, long-chain hydrocarbons, whose role in air pollution has been little understood until now. [ science ] There have been several air pollution alerts in London over the past two years

Revealed: British ministers tried to block EU moves to clean up air quality | Environment | The Guardian
A document obtained by the Observer reveals that the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has been advising British MEPs to vote against legislation that would oblige countries to carry out “routine and non-routine” inspections on vehicles’ “real-world” emissions. [...] The revelation will add to the growing concerns over the government’s commitment to tackling air pollution. It follows the admission last week that the Department for Transport had ignored significant evidence of the fraudulent practices being employed by the car industry when this was sent to it a year ago. About 29,000 deaths in the UK are hastened by inhalation of minute particles of oily, unburnt soot emitted by all petrol engines and an estimated 23,500 by the invisible but toxic gas nitrogen dioxide (NO2) discharged by diesel engines.

Bumper payouts for housebuilding executives as market booms | Business | The Guardian
Two of Britain’s largest housebuilders, Berkeley Group and Persimmon, could hand out about £1bn to their top executives and managers in pay and bonuses over the next six years, boosted by strong UK house prices and government-subsidies for home-buyers.

[...] Meanwhile, executives at Persimmon, the UK’s largest housebuilder, also have a Berkeley-style incentive scheme that is one of the most generous to be found at a London stock market-listed firm.

Paul Mason: what they're not telling you about housing - YouTube
- Tories isn't brave enough to stop the one way bet. Electorate preferential to those who actually vote, voted them in and are spared of most of the austerity. babyboomers and pensioners. // add Generation Rent + Student Loan Debt (Bubble) + low interest rate environment to inflate debt away + low yield for savings mean higher principle each year to put in means less discretionary spending + secular stagnation in the western world (Globalisation + Software eats the world) equals wage stagnation equals less spending power and savings power. ... ... it is a Disaster in the making, in-front of our eyes. Only those who inherited will be ok. otherwise, social mobility goes down, inequality up, ... making yourself means making hard choices (ie no kids), and bettering yourself by your own means impossible, when the whole system conspires against you.

Northerners ‘£2,300 worse off’ than rest of UK
“These figures show the Northern Powerhouse has a long way to go before people in the North feel the benefit of a stronger regional economy,” said Luke Raikes, research fellow at IPPR North. He added that the region would be unable to escape historic under performance of its economy without a “step change in policy.” [...] “The North should pursue growth and prosperity built on higher wages, more jobs and stronger productivity – not simply try to catch up to London and the South East, where the type of economic growth they’ve experienced has created high levels of inequality and left many behind. “The Northern Powerhouse will be meaningless for the people who live and work in the North unless the economic growth it generates reaches their pockets.”

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.

Please, no more white people writing smug articles about leaving London | Aisha Mirza | Comment is free | The Guardian
I understand there is a psychic toll of living in a place where you have to fight, for space, time, money. But what these Why I am Leaving London articles are missing is that, while the psychic burden of living in the city with the highest living costs in the developed world is very real, for a brown person, the cost of living surrounded only by white people is worse. // bit.ly/1NyCy3Q - No wonder so many people are quitting the capital.

Bertelsmann-Studie: Deutschland schrumpft und vergreist bis 2030 - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Trotz Zuwanderung wird Deutschland in 15 Jahren eine halbe Million Einwohner weniger haben, zeigt eine Hochrechnung. Mehr als die Hälfte der Menschen wäre älter als 48. Das hat für Stadt und Land teils dramatische Folgen. [...] Ähnlich wie bei der Studie aus dem März zeigt auch die neue Untersuchung, dass es die Menschen immer stärker vom Land in die Städte zieht. Ein Beispiel: In Sachsen-Anhalt und Thüringen wird die Zahl der Einwohner mit einem Minus von 13,6 und 9,9 Prozent deutlich zurückgehen. In den Stadtstaaten Berlin und Hamburg werden dagegen deutlich mehr Menschen leben - 10,3 und 7,5 Prozent mehr als 2012. Die Stiftung warnt aufgrund der Daten vor dramatischen Folgen für den ländlichen Raum. Dort werde es immer schwieriger werden, eine funktionierende Infrastruktur etwa bei Nahverkehr oder ärztlicher Versorgung sicherzustellen.

San Francisco’s independent retailers disrupt themselves to survive | PandoDaily
[ Don't compete directly with Amazon, price is not a long-term, sustainable business model ] “I was sitting next to a woman that I know, but who isn’t all that into comics. She told me that she didn’t really know where to begin, but if I would pick out a comic every month and send it to her, she would buy it. And a lightbulb just went off,” Hibbs said. Since then, he has purchased the domain graphicnovelclub.com and set out to do just that. For $20 a month, anyone in the world can sign up to receive the comic that Hibbs and his staff deem to be the best release that month. He’s also just set up a $15 a month graphic novel of the month club for kids. In addition to the book shipment, club members can attend or watch monthly book-club meetings, often featuring call-ins from the books’ artists and authors. [...] Each of these three businesses has built a devoted followings over many years, and occupies a cultural niche that comes preloaded with die-hard fandom.

I was an undercover Uber driver :: Cover :: Philadelphia City Paper
I talked to maybe 20 randomly hailed UberX and Lyft drivers between November and March. All but one were male immigrants, primarily from Africa, South Asia and the Middle East, and most spoke heavily accented English. It's a completely different group from the drivers I'm able to get in touch with through Uberpeople.net, the demographics of which I'd call "Reddit-ish." All the immigrant drivers who spoke to me took a lot of pride in providing excellent service. Few had been Uber drivers for more than a month or two. Many were helping support multiple family members, most had at least one other job and all worked hours that would reduce me to a weeping wreck in a month.

In the shadows of booming cities, a tension between sunlight and prosperity - The Washington Post
New luxury towers in Manhattan, and new additions in neighborhoods undergoing a building boom from San Francisco to Toronto to even low-rise D.C., have revived a long-simmering urban tension: between light and growth, between the benefits of city living and its cost in shadows.

VW-Hauptversammlung: Winterkorn hakt die Vergangenheit ab - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Auf der Hauptversammlung verknüpft VW-Chef Winterkorn die Zukunft von Europas größtem Autokonzern mit sich selbst. [...] Mit seinem Effizienzprogramm (das Wort "Sparprogramm" passt nicht zum Erfolgskurs) soll die Kernmarke VW noch in diesem Jahr mehr als eine Milliarde Euro einsparen. "Hier lassen wir - hier lasse ich nicht nach", betont Winterkorn. Bei VW bauen Menschen Autos für Menschen, wirbt der Konzernchef. "Und ich verspreche ihnen: Daran wird sich auch in Zukunft nichts ändern". << Werkvertraege und Leiharbeit (Lohnkostensenkung in GER) // are they really ahead of the cure or are they just coping with the change. meaning not willing to disrupt itself? to risk entering new industries what will take 10 years to mature (3D Printing (new materials), Software, Robotics, Automation, stakes in Share Economy and on-demand economy (Lyft, Uber, Hailo, BlaBlaCar, Postmates, FernReisebusunternehmen). ... which would actually show Leadership.

The Facebook Effect (On Real Estate Prices) | TechCrunch
The Wall Street Journal had a story on this yesterday: space is so tight that tech companies are paying north of $90 a square foot in Mountain View. Those are Manhattan skyscraper prices for 1980s-era suburban office parks. It is like running the entire industry on the physical equivalent of MS-DOS. You can either scale the physical infrastructure of the region or you can move the jobs. I favor doing both, but it seems obvious that the world is on an inexorable path towards mass urbanization and that the type of creative and collaborative work done in the industry today favors density. The younger generation in tech understands that in a knowledge-based economy, the value of what is created in Silicon Valley both economically and culturally is in the network. It depends upon who we can bring and include here — not in physical assets like a piece of land or a home. [...] elastic housing supply is supportive of economic growth, especially urban/metropolitan areas of dense eco activity
