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

The Prison Fellowship TUMI program fulfills a key element of the PF mission and vision by focusing on building church leaders in prison who can both build the church behind the walls and become leaders in the church on the outside. As a long term program, it fulfills a need for deep discipleship and leadership development.

Above all else, the Prison Fellowship TUMI program in the prisons is established on this essential conviction: God is raising up a new generation of Christ-centered servant leaders from behind bar... show more

The original (https://dabnotu.aminus3.com/image/2018-04-25.html) was "geometric" in and of itself. This composition accents those aspects while emphasizing the reflected parts of the image via the color separation/displacement.

Most people would never think of London as a forest. Yet there are actually more trees in London than people. And now, new work by researchers at University College London shows that pockets of this urban jungle store as much carbon per hectare as tropical rainforests.

An image created around ourselves, the idea to be something or someone is just a product of the brain. Believing to be that specific idea makes us become an object limited by space and time, and not what we really are with our full potential: consciousness.
That idea, or ego, always compares us with others and tries to make us feel better, more important.
In reality all of us are unique but no one is better or worse.

A circle, the perfect shape, was broken by our desire to own and dominate nature.
The two polarities were created to complete each other but the simple, immature humans perceived only a small part of the whole and moved away from the centre. The further they were from the origin the further the "other ones" were too.
It all was a stage of the growth process and when they stopped forcing against the natural laws the real order was established again.
Despite all, the circle never really broke.
