How can water sensitivity transform our cities into sustainable urban spaces? 🧵 Image
What is the challenge for water-sensitive #urban design on a #city scale?

Turning an area spread across 1250 square km, divided into 3 major valleys & a tank system into a water-sustainable space. Image
But increasing urbanisation in the last few decades has been diminishing the city’s #water bodies.

Here are some ways you can make your layout/apartment/gated community more water sustainable...🧵
Here’s the challenge:

In a layout, how can we convert water from an individual, private resource, to an #equitable resource?
Imagine everybody using multiple straws to procure water from the same glass.

Is there an alternative to everybody sinking a #borewell, competing with each other to draw #water? How can this alternative be #sustainable?

Is India's Consumption is Booming or Bombing ? keep updating the thread with Nuggets ...
Kantar's FMCG Pulse report .. April-Aug 2022.
Average MONTHLY sales of FMCG packs were 19.2 bn, or 62 packs/household, from Apr-Aug 2022
vs PRE-COVID: Average MONTHLY sales of FMCG packs 15 billion or 51 packs/household => 20% Increase in VOLUME

BUT #DEVIL lies in the #detail
packs bought pre-pandemic weighed 438 grams on average, the size has shrunk to just 309 grams now amid soaring inflation .... thats a 30% reduction in Volume/Pack...

In Other Words, CONSUMPTION per household in FMCG is Down 15% .... Cant recall such a BAD SCENARIO in 35 yrs..

🚀 We are live! Here is the correct streaming link for all of today's discussions and performances, starting with a panel on complex time with David Krakauer, James Gleick, Ted Chiang, and David Wolpert in a few moments (measured linearly...):

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

- SFI President David Krakauer sets the tone for this weekend's celebrations
#IPFest Image
David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

Although future #warming will affect #vegetation, the big draw of this paper is the specific impact on #urban #forests. However, I would take quantitative estimates made with these #models with a grain of salt since they don't provide "true" urban climate signals. [1/n]
The study uses projections from 10 Global Climate Models (#GCMs) over 164 #cities; comparing modeled variables relevant to species survival against baseline values to predict future risk. A big issue is that most of these GCMs do not represent cities in any meaningful way. [2/n]
Several of the GCMs do not have explicit urban land cover or use simplified slab models. The former provides no urban-specific signals and the latter overestimates urban warming. More importantly, around half of the models use versions of the Community Land Model (CLM). [3/n]

It's been a few weeks and I've now had time to reflect upon my experiences visiting #Austria and @rnd_ironnike to attend the Urban Operations Expert Talks 2022 conference. It afforded me the opportunity to reconnect with #SbT colleagues and meet new contacts. A thread 🧵 1/12 Image
The OUET22 event was coordinated by the Project NIKE team and ran in parallel with IRON NIKE, a major Austrian Armed Forced exercise, based in and around the mining centre of Eisenerz. It was significant that the Austrian Defence Minister visited this exercise. 2/12 Image
Event was held at the "Zentrum am Berg" (ZaB) training facility within the Erzberg iron ore mine. A great example of industrial, academic and military cooperation towards a common goal. In this case, the ability to work collaboratively in the urban #subterranean environment. 3/12 Image

New issue! We have just released an #openaccess collection focused on new urban forestry approaches and concepts for city #planning.

The issue was edited by @Dr_alessiorusso and Francisco J. Escobedo and is available here:

What has the issue found? 🧵👇
1/ One of the priorities for cities is to provide equal access to healthy #food & lifestyles.#Urban food forests can contribute, but + effort is needed to identify the most effective mosaics of “#green” land uses.

@FAOForestry @sim1borelli @botanicaUGR
2/ The inclusion of edible species in urban forest stands can enhance nutrition and #wellbeing in the urban landscape, where food deserts are common.

Ten film powinien zobaczyć każdy Polak.

Przez wiele miesięcy zbierałem rozrzucone, zapomniane lub nieznane opinii publicznej materiały o Obcych, którzy pokazali swoje twarze po 10/04.

Chciałem przypomnieć i unieśmiertelnić słowa, czyny i osoby.

Byśmy pamiętali.

My first #dissertation chapter has been published! The paper focuses on #predation of #urban #wildlife by #cats with recommendations for collaborative data-driven management strategies. Main points are summarized in this #infographic, but more info and paper link in this thread!
We spent 3 years surveying #WashingtonDC for #cats using #trailcams. Whenever we saw an image of a cat carrying prey, we noted the species and location, and added it to our predation database.
So what influences predation rates by #urban #feral cats? We found 2 driving factors: access to cat food and distance to forest edge. Why would cat food increase predation? Supplemental food allows cats to occur at greater densities, amplifying population-level predation!

@narendramodi 18.11.21 [Writ Petition(s)(Civil) No(s).1240/21] Hon'ble SC dismissed writ petition filed by students seeking urgent directions to conduct Class X & XII #CBSE & #ICSE Term I exams in hybrid manner. #Omicron arrived post 18.11.21. Therefore, exams should be online.
#Children should not be made to suffer because of #Omicron. Centre and States must cancel all #offline #exams forthwith. As a nation, we cannot take such a massive risk & play with the lives of our children. Online prelims are done, marks should be part of board marksheet.
Children belong to households that have either lost family members due to #Covid19 or members who suffer from #comorbidities & cannot be vaccinated. #Omicron shouldn't be taken lightly. Save our children. Protect our children. Cancel all #offline #exams immediately.

What is the state of clean cooking #energyaccess in #India?

Based on #IRES2020, our study found that:
➡️Over 70% per cent of Indian households use #LPG as their primary cooking fuel
➡️85% have #LPG connections
➡️54% continue to use traditional solid fuels

Read more 👇 Image
How has #LPGPriceHike affected consumption?
84% of households using traditional #solidfuels with #LPG cited high prices of LPG refills as a reason for stacking fuels. LPG prices have risen by 40% over the last 1 year.
#PressRelease: Image
80% non-users cite the inability to afford #LPG – either bcz of connection cost or recurring expense on #fuel – as the reason for not having an #LPGconnection.
Using traditional solid fuels for cooking increases exposure to indoor #airpollution for such households.

Excerpts from "'America’s Post-Pandemic Geography' - Covid-19 is transforming all types of communities, from big cities to suburbs to rural areas" - from the Summer 2021 Issue of @CityJournal - by @Richard_Florida & @joelkotkin. A #Thread.

The article →…
1. "The #Pandemic will pass...But in geographic terms, today’s Covid-precipitated crises may well prove to be the most transformative event that #America has experienced since the great migration to the suburbs after World War II."
2. "....centrifugal forces pull some people out of #Cities: families seek more #Affordable space, backyards, and access to better schools. With the wider scope of choice that #RemoteWork affords, some are casting their nets wider and moving farther afield..."

Great thread on #urban #Econ as a field and the ways it was pushed/evolved.

Similar to Penn’s RegSci PhD program. The #Regional #Planning program at @Illinois_Alma during the early 90’s all through the 2010’s was quite important in developing ties between disciplines ...
At some point you had people of all disciplines working together.. Geoff Hewings (my advisor) on InputOutput, TJ Kim on transportation, Luc Anselin and Anil Bera and Dan McMillen on spatial econometrics, Andrew Isserman, Kieran Donaghy, Lew Hopkins on rural, & urban planning ..
Out of @Illinois_Alma there was a great number of scholars that today are still working on these issues. We all grew from the amazing place that was the #REAL (Regional Economics Applications Laborarory) founded by Geoff and Philph initially in partnership with the Chicago Fed..
