kowloon walled city

kowloon walled city



An article in the New York Times asking how many people could keep notes of Manhattan "Manhattan package as strong as Kowloon Walled City, river to river, get stuck on average 65 million people."

I think in many ways is more illuminating to think about less extreme scenarios. Think of New Jersey, which is not really a farm full. It contains, however, five times more people per square mile as California. In other words, if the Golden State were as close as New Jersey an average of over 188 million people. And California is a fine place to live. Thanks to its mild climate, Californians use very little energy for heating and cooling of offices compared to most Americans. According to 2005 data, the average California had half the footprint of the average American about this. And yet, a Californian who was in New Jersey, the level of population density would be even lower per capita CO2 emissions, as many cars would travel shorter distances and a greater proportion of the population would be walking / cycling / transit by the time. And although this of course would be a dramatic transformation, my point is that unlike Manhattan interpretation of Kowloon Walled City is not a bad idea. New Jersey is a strange neighborhood, as an accident of history. New Jersey is not particularly intense! In fact, small cities (Trenton, Newark, Camden) are all well below the peaks of its population history.

vikings stadium

vikings stadium




Gov. Mark Dayton and the Vikings owners Zygi and Mark Wilf unveiled plans Thursday for a new, $ 975 million stadium would be built almost on top of the location in downtown Minneapolis Metrodome. The agreement, which met behind closed doors in recent weeks, was a key step towards obtaining a plan to state legislators and other community leaders for approval.

However, the plan is far from reality.

"All politicians have to make a difficult decision," said Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak, a reinforcement of the stadium, which now must convince the most skeptical directors of sales tax revenue dedicated to this effort.

It is also found between the Vikings and a new stage of 201 state legislators, all for reelection later this year and many of them are not convinced that $ 737 million in public funds should be contributed to the plan.

"I can not way for me to vote for to see," said Senator Jeff Hayden, a Democrat from Minneapolis. "My constituents have weighed if you do not want public financing of private stadiums."

Supporters of the proposal said it would not only the Vikings, but the benefit of Minnesota State. Under the agreement, the team will collect all revenue generated by the football stadium there. However, the stadium would be owned by a new public entity that maintains all the other benefits of any other sporting event to rock concerts and the like.
