Where should 'pop-up' cycleways go? We analysed data for 10 cities, 4 of which are shown below, finding that there are 'spare lanes' near city centres in all of them.

Results + interactive maps: cyipt.github.io/tempCycleways/

More: below...
Interpreting the results (this is a starter for 10 where there is excess road space, many other options exist): github.com/cyipt/tempCycl…

1/8

This is the lovely Ian Golightly. He is one of the most committed members of the #ToonArmy I’ve ever known.

He has #Huntingtonsdisease and recently spent 2 weeks in hospital fighting #covid19
2/8

Ian was discharged to his nursing home after fighting back against this dreadful virus.

However, Ian is still fighting a chest infection and the combination of being so poorly and #Isolation means he is currently in a very very low place.
3/8

Due to his condition, Ian has few pleasures in life: namely, going to @NeuroDropIn, watching @NUFC (though sadly he can no longer make the trip to #StJamesPark) and playing scrabble/spend time with his friends.

Range anxiety is a real concern for changing our mindset around #ElectricVehicles.

Just how close to the left of the needle can we go?

Tomorrow I’ve got a few offsite #CSIRO meetings between #Newcastle & #Sydney, so why not come on:
“A day in the life of an #EV

Starting, NOW!
Off on the first leg of the #EV trip, leaving work for the day: I have an 8am meeting so will get a head start.

Leaving the charging point behind & starting with a ~full charge + range of 429 km.

Bring on tomorrow’s #RangeAnxiety experiment!
@TheDriven_io @AEVA_National #CSIRO
First leg of #RangeAnxiety experiment 🧪went as expected:

16 km trip from Office to Home, 15 km reduction in range.

Now to take the dog 🐕 for a bush walk & await the next experimental leg.

bit.ly/2VYbHbu In 2019 #Liverpool and 9 other UK cities will have 5G. Has anyone consulted with the communities, and people it will be rolled out on as to the environmental and public health concerns? @peter_dowd @dancardenmp @Bill_Esterson @FightingGran @IanRCrane
The dangers of cell phone technology have been widely known since the 1990s. bit.ly/2urZAee Many people expressing concerns are respected scientists bit.ly/2JPncAi
bit.ly/2uONkls I would urge everyone in #Liverppol #Merseyside to read the links in this article. The concerns expressed are not publicly known and how many of us were informed that 5G would be rolled out in #Liverpool this year?

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

#BBCNews #Skynews #Itvnews #Channel4News #ThisMorning #TheresaMay #UKGov #LBC
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Dear @BBCR4Feedback
Tomorrow I will post a package of #StopBrexit paraphernalia to you
The materials are used by the Remain campaign & have been crowdfunded
I will also post prints of photos from the last 21 months (see thread below) so you can see what you haven't been covering
1/It has taken me several hours to compile nearly 2 years of photos from the #Remain campaign into this 22 page document, however i felt it necessary to do so in order to illustrate to the #BBC the extent and commitment of our campaign which you haven't been acknowledging.

1) You can't understand . . .

#Rotherham
#NewCastle
#Rochdale
#Telford

until you understand that this is a part of Pakistani culture. Pakistan is one giant Rotherham, except boys are the victims since females are kept from the public square.
2) Of course not everyone in an ethnic group shares the same personality, but if enough people share a personality type or trait beyond a certain threshold, it tilts the culture in that direction.
3) There are court documents from ancient Greece suggesting they had this same nonchalant attitude.

That changed.

You couldn't re-institute this cultural practice among Euros - likely because European psychology has changed over past few thousand years.
