Even before the financial crisis, the Occupy movement and the new era of austerity , the Sunday Times Rich List was an odd kind of fixture in the media landscape. The annual roll call of the wealthiest 1,000 individuals or families in the UK has always triggered the full range of our ambivalent responses to people with staggering amounts of money: envy, admiration, disdain, awe, and that special flavour of inverse snobbery that stems from being convinced that you've spent your life more meaningfully than the head of the Tetra Pak food-packaging empire, whatever the impact on your bank balance. Now, though, for reasons we all understand, attitudes towards the super-rich are changing: disdain is hardening into anger; ambivalence has been replaced with hostility. Despite a still-weak economy, the collective wealth of the 2011 Rich List increased by £60.2bn on the previous year , and in the 2012 list, which is published tomorrow, that divergence looks set to get larger.
La serie ‘We Are The Not Dead’: Soldiers on Afghan Mission, del fotógrafo escocés Lalage Snow, retrata, literalmente, los devastadores efectos de una guerra sobre la psique de los combatientes. Mucho se ha hablado sobre la guerra, sobre su esencia ligada a una intención –tal vez primitiva– de dominar, sobre los desmoralizantes efectos que imprime en una sociedad y el monumental costo financiero, ético, psicológico y vivencial que implica. Hoy imaginamos, con relativa fidelidad y gracias a ciertos reportajes, filmes, y crónicas, que el participar en una guerra puede ser, comprensiblemente, un evento devastador para la naturaleza humana. Pero lo cierto es que pocos documentos retratan de manera tan contundente las implicaciones que una experiencia bélica puede tener en la psique de una persona, como la serie ‘We Are The Not Dead’: Soldiers on Afghan Mission , del fotógrafo escocés Lalage Snow.
Walmart is always good for destroying your faith in humanity on Black Friday, and this year was no exception : By day’s end, reports emerged from stores across the country of biblical struggles over waffle makers, pepper-spraying, and even at least one shooting. Maybe if shoppers took a closer look at Walmart’s business doings they wouldn’t be so willing to whip out legal airborne torture for a bargain Xbox. Or maybe they would, I don’t know. Still, what Frugal Dad has strung together in Weight of Walmart above, has to give even the most hardened Black Friday criminals pause.

Last weekend, San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C. hosted spontaneous " Hackathons " to brainstorm how to use various platforms to help Occupy Wall Street. One of the ideas hatched was Occupy Design , a new website that gives a "visual language" to protesters across the country. Jake Levitas, a designer from San Francisco who's heading up the project, says it's a chance to fight back at media who characterize the movement as directionless.
Constructed in the early 20th century, Eixample is a district of the Spanish city of Barcelona known for the urban planning that divided the district into octagonal blocks. Influenced by a range of schools of architecture, Eixample was designed in a grid pattern with long streets, wide avenues, and rounded street corners. Despite being in the center of a thriving European metropolis, the district provides improved living conditions for inhabitants including extensive sun light, improved ventilation, and more open green space for public use. And of course, the result from the grid-like structure is astounding from above: <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
