Oxytocin: could the 'trust hormone' rebond our troubled world? | Science | The Observer Listening to Paul Zak extol the virtues of oxytocin, the "love hormone", is like hearing a preacher sing the praises of the Promised Land. His idea of a harmonious oxytocin-fuelled society is so seductive you find yourself almost praying it were true. At the same time, you cannot help but wonder if it might be an illusion.

While it will live on, the house is another story. It has been empty about seven years. The bricks are crumbling. The raccoons have been evicted, but not the termites. Lexan panels cover the windows; a fan blows futilely to keep down the mold. A Love Still Supreme, but John Coltrane's House in Ruins

By CyberMummy co-founder Sian To 03 May 2011 The great playwright Henrik Ibsen once described community as "like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm". The equally great (if slightly easier to digest) wordsmith Neil Tennant of The Petshop Boys, agreed, saying, "I think the world should be one community". Though neither was referring to the internet, they're both right – community can affect your business for better or worse. 10 steps to a thriving online community

Welcome to Urban Habitat | Urban Habitat B1’s incredibly narrow loss is bittersweet for us at Urban Habitat, who had worked incredibly hard to make sure it would improve transit for Alameda County’s low-income and working-class residents. Measure B1 included many important benefits to the county’s transportation system and, particularly its most vulnerable residents — in the form of funds for restoring AC Transit service, improving paratransit for the elderly and disabled, new bike lanes and sidewalks, and seed funding for a countywide Free Student Bus Pass program. These are all funds badly needed to put Alameda County on a path toward more sustainable and equitable transportation modes. The funds in B1 would have enabled AC Transit to add back bus lines that had been cut, expand evening and weekend service, and make buses run more frequently and more on-time. Without B1, AC Transit may need to cut further from its already skeletal service, and it will definitely try to push another fare hike on its already-taxed riders.
