The Rust Belt Revival: What's Happening in Detroit, Michigan: Critical Eye

With his company Loveland Technologies, the artist, futurist, and start-up vet Jerry Paffendorf is building interactive online maps (WhyDontWeOwnThis.com) and apps (SiteControl.us) that inform users about who owns properties throughout Detroit. Making this information transparent, Paffendorf reasons, will spur the sale and repair of properties—a vital service in a city where more than a third of all residential parcels are vacant. It all began three years ago when Paffendorf, 30, bought a vacant lot in east Detroit for $500, divided it into 10,000 individual square-inch plots, and auctioned them off to approximately 600 "inchvestors.

" The buyers then formed an online community called Loveland, which served as a kind of think tank for land-use issues and policy. The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit. Depression.wmv.

Waiting for the Rapture

Bear that history in mind as you consider the creed of the singularitarians. Many of them fervently believe that in the next several decades we’ll have computers into which you’ll be able to upload your consciousness—the mysterious thing that makes you you. Then, with your consciousness able to go from mechanical body to mechanical body, or virtual paradise to virtual paradise, you’ll never need to face death, illness, bad food, or poor cellphone reception. Waiting for the Rapture [r/singularitarianism] : Futurology. Hwabyeong. Hwabyeong or Hwabyung is a Korean[1] somatization disorder, a mental illness which arises when people are unable to confront their anger as a result of unfair conditions.[2] Hwabyung is loosely used as the name of the disease, as it is actually more of a name regarding the cause.

Hwabyeong

Hwabyung is known as a culture-bound syndrome.[3] The word hwabyung is composed of "hwa" meaning "fire", and "byung" meaning "syndrome" or "illness". [4] In South Korea, it is also called ulhwabyeong (鬱火病), "depression anger illness". In a survey, 4.1% of the general population in a rural area in Korea were reported as having hwabyung.[3] Another survey shows that about 35% of Korean employees begin to suffer from this disease at some point.[5] Causes[edit] It most often occurs in middle-aged, menopausal women with relatively low socio-economic status. The individuals typically live in traditional families, which stress the value of males while devaluing women.

Join Margaret Wente and Dakshana Bascaramurty at 1 p.m. ET Monday to discuss the Boomers’ retirement and the Millennial generation’s future. Please don’t resent me because I’m a boomer – although I wouldn’t blame you if you do. The government has made it very clear that the concept of shared sacrifice does not apply to my generation. Unlike people under 54, we boomers will get every penny of the Old Age Security benefits we’ve been promised, and probably all the health care, too.

Boomers' generation had everything it wanted – and it still does : TrueReddit. #Revolutionwhatrevolution? How the global addiction to computers is helping keep the world quiet and peaceful When I recently discovered Twitter, I went from contemptuous to addicted in about three days.

#Revolutionwhatrevolution?

But one thing still puzzles me about the world’s 10th most popular website: the notion that it’s a revolutionary medium. The failed Moldovan rebellion of 2009 was probably the first to be dubbed the “Twitter revolution”, but since then, Twitter has been credited with launching the Iranian uprising, Arab spring and London riots. Now it has supposedly prompted the African Union to hunt for the Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, after an anti-Kony propaganda film spread through social media and was watched more than 100 million times. I confidently predict that the next revolution anywhere on earth will be dubbed “the Twitter revolution”. Aptana. ACE - Ajax.org Cloud9 Editor.

The goal of a reset stylesheet is to reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, and so on. The general reasoning behind this was discussed in a May 2007 post, if you're interested. Reset styles quite often appear in CSS frameworks, and the original "meyerweb reset" found its way into Blueprint, among others. The reset styles given here are intentionally very generic. There isn't any default color or background set for the body element, for example.
