The Coronavirus and The Cities We Need In the first half of the 20th century, the students at Boston’s best public high school, Boston Latin, included a brash kid named Leonard Bernstein, who would one day compose West Side Story; another boy named Thomas L. Phillips, who would build the Massachusetts manufacturer Raytheon into a bulwark of American defense; and Paul Zoll, who would pioneer the use of electricity to treat cardiac arrest while working as a doctor at a Boston hospital. Most any American city of that period could produce a similar honor roll of kids raised on its streets and educated in its public classrooms who went on to leave a mark on the world. Back then, cities supplied the keys for unlocking human potential: an infrastructure of public schools and colleges, public libraries and parks, public transit systems and clean, safe drinking water. The very density and diversity of urban life fostered the accumulation of knowledge, the exchange of ideas, the creation of new products. Then, cities worked.

The vast majority of the guidelines apply to for-profit marketing as well. Sections of This Topic Include Basics and Planning Hello World, Once Again – Drive on the Left Relaunch Post You know that saying that you should dress for the job you want, rather than the job you have? We take it to heart and have a closet full of elegant clothes to prove it. But in the 18 months we’ve been running Drive on the Left, we’ve found that we’ve outgrown our little homespun design, and our aspirations for the site and for our futures just don’t match the clothes our website had on. We blame it on the trifecta of: total and utter lack of design skills, our judgement that HTML looks vaguely like Finnish, and our preference for booking plane tickets over fighting with WordPress.

The COVID-19 crisis could show us how to cure our congested cities In an attempt to limit virus transmission, big parts of the world are progressively locking down. For an undetermined period of time, social distancing will force us to live our lives in a totally different way. Even before governments took drastic action, many companies had asked employees to work from home, shifted working hours to avoid crowded public transport, or implemented split teams (teams A and B alternatively working from home every two weeks). When the crisis ends, many of our old habits — including the idea that one has to leave home to go to the workplace on a daily basis — will have changed. And the new habits we’re now building could help solve a long-standing problem no one has been able to solve to date: traffic congestion. Congestion is a serious issue.
Future IPhone Will Support China Mobile's 4G Network ~ Mobile News Future versions of Apple's iPhone will support China Mobile's fourth generation (4G) network, China's largest mobile carrier said, a sign that it will eventually offer the iconic device to its 600 million customers. China Mobile's chairman Wang Jianzhou reported the development on Thursday, according to a company spokeswoman. Both Apple and the carrier have reached a consensus on the development of Long-Term Evolution (LTE), a 4G technology that can allow mobile phones to exchange data at much faster rates.

China Mobile has been in discussions with Apple since 2007 about selling its iPhone product, but the companies have yet to reach agreement.

'Whodunnit' awareness test: How many changes can you spot? The clip initially appears to be a scene from a cliched murder mystery, with a trench coat–wearing detective interviewing the maid, butler and lady of the house over the death of Lord Smithe, who lies sprawled on the drawing room floor. But the sketch is merely the premise for a test designed to show just how bad we are at noticing things that we're not looking for – including on the roads. After the detective names the killer the scene is replayed, this time filmed from a camera that captures all the film crew's out-of-shot manoeuvrings. This angle reveals that the 50 second scene contained 21 glaring continuity errors; paintings, props and rugs were all switched half way through the shoot, and even the actor playing Lord Smithie's corpse was replaced. The advert ends with the message: "It's easy to miss something you are not looking for.

Still, with millions of iPad 2s in customers’ hands, one would expect that more people would be using the device.
