These #waterless #hi-tech #toilets could be the #answer to #urban #Africa’s #waste #problems



About 23% of people living in Sub-Saharan Africa don’t have access to toilets while 31% with toilets use one’s that aren’t connected to a formal sanitation system. This means that more than half the people in sub-Saharan Africa live without proper sanitation – that’s about 570 million people.

Makes me think of all the fancy bikes I saw riding the Telkom Cycle Challenge, Sunday – biking spares cash for other purposes, obviously, but I was not aware of the scale…

The Chinese megacity of 12 million people is crowded, polluted, and vulnerable to flooding. A rooftop garden is using plants to make stormwater work for the city, and to improve the livelihoods of residents

Frustrated by the obstacles to urban cycling in North America, Melissa and Chris Bruntlett traveled with their two kids from Vancouver to the #Netherlands in 2016 to take a deep five-week dive into places that do cycling better. Traversing cities in the Netherlands by bike, they found that cycling is not just a better way to get around; when done right, it leads to healthier, safer, more vibrant, more family-friendly communities. They wrote it all up in their new book, Building the Cycling City: The Dutch Blueprint for Urban Vitality, which provides a guide for cities and communities that want to do cycling right, and for urban cyclists and families who want to learn the keys to cycling as a way of life.

I spoke to the Bruntletts by phone earlier this month about what they’ve learned and about what c... show more
 

Invisible friends


There are days I love living in a dense, urban area. It gives me opportunity to encounter all sorts of things that i would never have otherwise. It keeps me flexible, curious, and relatively open-minded. And then there are days where I could do with never having to overhear another loud, rambling conversation with an invisible friend ever again.

Way to make yourself a target! I lived in Mpls for years -- Stevens; Powderhorn; Phillips neighborhoods -- and I do favor the Belgian beers, but come on... Finding it tough to sympathize about this guy missing the gentrification bus. As a graffito put it in the old Spice Factory, where I also lived: 'so cry me a river of blood...'

New here, not new here


Hello, Federation friends and Fediversians. I'm not exactly #newhere. I joined #diaspora 6 years ago, disappeared after I got no response on my first 6 posts, and then came back 6 months ago. I've made some lovely connections, and my online world is the better for it. I'm now in the process of migrating my presence from D\* to this Hubzilla account. If you knew me before, I hope you follow me here.

If you are bumping into me for the first time, I enjoy discovering kindred spirits across the globe. Thanks for sharing your life changes, challenges, and celebrations, and for making my world a bigger, more connected place.

Let's get down to #introductions. Here's some 411 to help you decide if I'm your cup of tea: I’m a progressive, middle-age, cis-gendered, able-bodied, white, first-... show more
 
Dependent on weather conditions, etc., I took my son to school via Surly (Big Dummy!) or a Xootr push scooter for two years in Washington, DC, where electric scooters of all three major varietals are also available. I'd be partial to Skip, of any of them, just because they're built better: suspension and wider platform = safer in traffic. But of course there's an underside, too:

Our part of Pretoria looks maybe scooter-able for certain journeys, so lately I've been looking to replace the (much abused, very nearly dead) Xootr. Reading this I must disagree with my five-year-old son, and insist on getting anot... show more
