ONU-Habitat - Cómo reducir el crimen a través del diseño urbano. Del libro Planeamiento Urbano para Autoridades Locales 12 marzo 2018 Compartir La planificación permite identificar causas fundamentales del crimen, establece la presencia local de lo público y ayuda a generar confianza entre grupos e instituciones marginadas, como estrategia clave para la prevención del delito.

ONU-Habitat - Cómo reducir el crimen a través del diseño urbano

Aunque la delincuencia urbana es un fenómeno social complejo, las intervenciones de planificación urbana pueden tener fuerte impacto positivo, dando espacio para las actividades económicas formales e informales, impulsando la recuperación y el mantenimiento de espacios públicos, haciendo que servicios y oportunidades estén disponibles para los residentes marginados. También en senderos y caminos sin pavimentar que bloquean el acceso a los automóviles de policía y otros vehículos, así como en donde pocas personas están viendo lo que está pasando, por ejemplo, en calles abandonadas, áreas con altas paredes ciegas y en grandes espacios abiertos. 5.

Death By Utopia

Calhoun relaxing in Universe 25 In the late 20th Century, John B. Calhoun decided to make Utopia; it started with rats. In 1947 he began to watch a colony of Norway rats, over 28 months he noticed something, in that time the population could have increased to 50,000 rats, but instead it never rose above 200. The Flat Areas Of Europe Tend To Be The Most Right Wing. Computational sociology. Computational sociology is a branch of sociology that uses computationally intensive methods to analyze and model social phenomena.

Computational sociology

Using computer simulations, artificial intelligence, complex statistical methods, and analytic approaches like social network analysis, computational sociology develops and tests theories of complex social processes through bottom-up modeling of social interactions.[1] In relevant literature, computational sociology is often related to the study of social complexity.[5] Social complexity concepts such as complex systems, non-linear interconnection among macro and micro process, and emergence, have entered the vocabulary of computational sociology.[6] A practical and well-known example is the construction of a computational model in the form of an "artificial society", by which researchers can analyze the structure of a social system.[2][7] History[edit] Background[edit]

Scientists thought they had a pretty good handle on the social interactions of bottlenose dophins (Tursiops). How Animals Make Decisions & Neural Decision-Making. Ignorance can be bliss, but it seems it can also promote democracy.

How Animals Make Decisions & Neural Decision-Making

Strongly opinionated members can determine a group's consensus decision, even when they make up only a small minority. New research of animal behavior shows, however, that adding ignorant or uninformed members to the group can counteract the minority’s powerful influence and promote a more democratic outcome. Researchers used several computer models to investigate the decision-making process in various animal groups when a majority wants to travel in one direction and a minority wants to go in another.

TGIF: El parque temático definitivo con Minecraft. Minecraft Timelapse - Theme Park. The Decline of Violence. On July 22, 2011, a 32-year-old Norwegian named Anders Behring Breivik opened fire on participants in a Labour Party youth camp on the island of Utoya after exploding a bomb in Oslo, resulting in 77 dead, the worst tragedy in Norway since World War II.

The Decline of Violence

English philosopher Thomas Hobbes famously argued in his 1651 book, Leviathan, that such acts of violence would be commonplace without a strong state to enforce the rule of law. But aren’t they? What about 9/11 and 7/7, Auschwitz and Rwanda, Columbine and Fort Hood? Computer simulation reveals why it's hard to export democracy to the world. Ah!

Save me from the closed-loop thinking! People acts like these ancient tribes were 'equal' because economic gains by the group-at-larger were distributed somewhat equal amongst the individuals of the group. Don't tell me there were no Alphas. Don't tell me there wasn't inequality in love. Don't tell me there was the time and freedom to pursue curiousity. The evolution of economic inequality allowed societies to grow and diversify to the point where tribal hierarchy and the enslaving demands of scarcity could be abolished. Freedom to Riot: On the Evolution of Collective Violence. It's been said that any society is three square meals away from anarchy.

Freedom to Riot: On the Evolution of Collective Violence

Personally I've always found it depressing that we are still so base we will be literally moved by our stomachs before any principle or outrage you can name. The reason policy makers and the people on your televisions break out the ultra conservative rhetoric over rioting (animals, mindless, anarchists etc) is that they sit comfortably at the top of the structure that depends on you and everyone around you not realising you're at the bottom of it, hold its stability in your hands and could take everything they are and own for yourselves if you had the collective will to do so.

The governed, fairly or unfairly, must always consent to governance. They simply have to propagandise against that realisation, ensure that protesters and the people are cast as the enemy rather than themselves.
