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: bit.ly/3t7xOjg

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. bit.ly/3PNrhE3

@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. bit.ly/3GwWbfC

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!

What does the @IPCC_CH #ClimateReport say about cities and human settlements? An #urban #climate 🧵 (1/n)
First, the focus on cities is done on purpose; indeed, it was a key aspect across all Working Groups when the AR6 assessment was scoped back in 2017. (2/n) Image
Why so?
“In this AR6 there is a very strong focus on cities, urban areas, and their connection to rural areas...and given that the majority of people now live and work in cities, I think that focus on urban areas is really critical.” - Debra Roberts, WGII co-chair. (3/n) Image

@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: bit.ly/2Ynelyi 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 → city-journal.org/americas-post-…
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..

"We find that #India could become one of the first places in the world to experience heat waves that cross the survivability limit for a healthy human being resting in the shade, & this could occur as early as next decade."

"The massive growth of #data centers that began in the US is now standard in Europe, w/ hyperscale data centers now expanding into #SouthAsia where average yr round temps for the humid region hover around 27°C."

(But they care about your health.)

N. India has historically exhibited some of world’s hottest wet-bulb temps. According to scientific lit.: "35° wet-bulb temp. is commonly regarded as [] limit for human survival. At 35°C wet-bulb a healthy human being can survive, resting in the shade, for approx. five hours."

Oleg de F. Peeters chez @Oncle_Atrabile ou la 'suite' de sa BD la + personnelle : Les Pilules Bleues. On le suit ici à la 3e personne, décryptant le quotidien avec son regard subtil et incisif. C'est touchant, magnifiquement dessiné & inventif. Du grand Peeters. ImageImageImageImage
Alyson Ford chez Vents d'Ouest / @GlenatBD. Premier tome de la nouvelle série de @JorisCHAMBLAIN (Les Carnets de Cerise). Sympathique mélange d'action/aventure pour ados avec comme influences Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, Uncharted... Trait assez générique mais histoire agréable. ImageImageImageImage
1984 chez les @editions_Soleil. L'une des adaptations en roman graphique du bouquin passé dans le domaine public. Le style est froid pour coller à l'univers, avec de rares touches de couleurs. Ça se lit bien même si rien n'égale le livre d'origine. À compléter avec la BD Orwell. ImageImageImageImage

#July #RetailInflation has come@ 6.93% YoY

CPI for April&May,7.22% &6.27%

#Lockdown related supply disruptions led to spike

In hindsight,#RBI's decision not to lower #REPO in Aug meet,stands vindicated

June #CPI revised from 6.09%,to 6.23%&March revised up,from 5.84% to 5.91%
June&March revisions led by revisions in #FoodInflation

For example,revised food inflation in June is 8.72%,Vs earlier figure of 7.87%

#July food inflation@ 9.62% saw a sharp rise,driven by rising meat,fish&vegetable prices

#Rural inflation in July was 7.04%,Vs #Urban@6.84%
Good bit in July inflation number is #FuelInflation@ just 2.8%

#CoreInflation in July,excluding food&energy,is slated to be in 5.8-5.8% range

Core inflation in June was 5%&3.8% in March 2020--Spike in July,gives added reason not to lower #REPO which is at 20 year low,currently
