#Oslo is ALMOST banning cars from its city centre, replacing parking spaces with flower beds, & building 60km of bike-lanes. All to create an almost car-free city centre by this year. Via @wef

Glad to be back working & speaking in #Oslo this week. #UFGC19
The best recent waterfront development in the world? Definitely top 3.

- 1/2 housing, 1/2 job space, lots of retail.
- half of housing 3+ bedrooms, lots of kids
- outstanding public realm design.
- diverse, interesting architecture.

Few things I enjoy more than deep conversations (over drinks) on urgent city-building challenges with smart urbanists (who are also friends). Great catching up with @JasonThorne_RPP & @MikeLydon tonight in #Oslo during @UrbanFutureConf #UFGC19 Europe’s biggest urbanism gathering.

Birthright American Jewish youth visiting #Israel were given maps that COMPLETELY ERASED #Palestine, inc the #WestBank — one traveller called it into question
"Two-State Solution"👇😡It's always been a farce to enable Israel to claim #Democracy while keeping #Palestinians in Ghettos, denying even their basic #HumanRights‼️

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉

It’s actually remarkable that we still fall for the sales pitch that cars equal freedom. There’s nothing free about the lack of choice that comes from car dependancy. And building our city-regions around cars is the most costly thing we can do. Does that sound “free” to you?

It’s that time again. Thanksgiving traffic in the United States reminds us that we’re not stuck in traffic — we are traffic. And the only thing we’re really stuck in is the belief that we can’t make different choices. Via @DanLinden @abcnews

1/21 From the very beginning #Israel planned to usurp #Palestine
#OsloPeace didn't manage to dismantle a single Settlement,to the contrary, #Israel started taking more #Palestinian Land
During the 7 yrs following #Oslo,the Settler Population within the #WestBank increased by 90%
2/21 Following Intl pressure to stop Settlements #Israel began new tactics,under the pretext of natural growth,they expanded & fattened,the existing settlements & connected them to each other & to Israel
Slicing the land blocking any possibility of a contiguous #Palestinian State
3/21 #Israeli Settlements along with their Road Network & Security Zones, occupy about 42% of Palestinian Land.
Roads btw Settlements can only be traveled by Settlers,the basic Human Right of Freedom of Movement within ones Home Country has been taken away from the #Palestinians
