A 100-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor on How Books Save Lives. Cake Ösa+ Electric Utility Bike. Cake, the Swedish outfit behind the KALK e-bike has just released its latest fully-electric two-wheeled offering with the highly-utilitarian Ösa+.
Unlike the performance-oriented KALK (and road-legal KALK+), the new model was engineered to be as versatile and modular as possible, enabling riders to tailor their Ösa+ however they see fit. The company is also offering a range of bolt-on accessories and racks for the new model to further bolster its multifaceted nature. Constructed around an extruded, forged, machined, and welded 6061 aluminum frame that uses a clamp system to accept a myriad of different attachments and can literally act as a mobile workbench/station. The Ösa+ forgoes its off-road-focused predecessor’s top-shelf Öhlins forks in favor of more economical — albeit still inverted — items. The 14-inch wheels were designed and produced in house by Cake, and are laced up with 220mm discs bit by four-pot calipers front and back. Here Are the Urban Highways That Deserve to Die.
Replacing I-980 with a surface boulevard could bridge the gap between Oakland's neighborhoods.

The Game of Life: Visualizing China's Social Credit System. In an attempt to imbue trust, China has announced a plan to implement a national ranking system for its citizens and companies.

The Routledge Handbook of Urban Disaster Resilience: Integrating Mitigation, Preparedness, and Recovery Planning, 1st Edition. Description The Routledge Handbook of Urban Disaster Resilience emphasizes the intersection of urban planning and hazard mitigation as critical for community resilience, considering the interaction of social, environmental, and physical systems with disasters.
The Handbook introduces and discusses the phases of disaster – mitigation, preparedness/response, and recovery – as well as each of the federal, state, and local players that address these phases from a planning and policy perspective. Part I provides an overview of hazard vulnerability that begins with an explanation of what it means to be vulnerable to hazards, especially for socially vulnerable population segments. Part II discusses the politics of hazard mitigation; the failures of smart growth placed in hazardous areas; the wide range of land development policies and their associated risk; the connection between hazards and climate adaptation; and the role of structural and non-structural mitigation in planning for disasters.

Films For Action University: a Map for Navigating the Transition From Empire to Earth Community. Most colleges prepare students to read a map of the world that's both outdated and distorted.
From economics to history to politics to ecology, modern schools are failing to prepare students for the future on a fundamental level. To put it simply, most colleges are still running on a set of assumptions that were developed during the 20th century. These assumptions are largely invisible to us - they are part of our subconscious "story of humanity" - but they ultimately constitute the heart of our societal crisis. The most simple of these is the premise that things will go on as they have before - that we can just get a job, do our part to grow the economy (progress!)

The Invention of Capitalism: How a Self-Sufficient Peasantry was Whipped Into Industrial Wage Slaves. “…everyone but an idiot knows that the lower classes must be kept poor, or they will never be industrious.”
—Arthur Young; 1771 Our popular economic wisdom says that capitalism equals freedom and free societies, right? Economics 101 and Ecological Collapse. Via the Economics of Happiness Blog.
Today’s economics, especially Economics 101, is a major source of humankind’s denial of the possibility of the calamity of all calamities, which our economy is engineering. Annually, millions of students around the world are forced to study textbooks that indoctrinate them into thinking that there is no significant causal connection between our economy and the ecosphere. Once upon a time there wasn’t. Although from the first forest-clearing onwards, the economy has caused environmental damage and at an increasing rate, it was only in the 19th century – when the economy began the big switch away from muscle energy – that it began to acquire the means to cause lethal damage to the ecosphere. It has now been over half a century since the natural sciences began to discover that the economy was causing fundamental and irreversible changes to the ecosphere by which we and the economy exist. America's first urban 'agrihood' feeds 2,000 households for free.
When you think of Detroit, ‘sustainable‘ and ‘agriculture‘ may not be the first two words that you think of. But a new urban agrihood debuted by The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI) might change your mind. The three-acre development boasts a two-acre garden, a fruit orchard with 200 trees, and a sensory garden for kids. If you need a refresher on the definition of agrihood, MUFI describes it as an alternative neighborhood growth model. An agrihood centers around urban agriculture, and MUFI offers fresh, local produce to around 2,000 households for free. Related: Amazing farm-to-table, eco friendly housing development in California is a locavore’s paradise In a statement, MUFI co-founder and president Tyson Gersh said, “Over the last four years, we’ve grown from an urban garden that provides fresh produce for our residents to a diverse, agricultural campus that has helped sustain the neighborhood, attracted new residents and area investment.
