Powerful photos capture the student protests in Mexico barely anyone is talking about 

While the world has focused its attention on the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, there’s another student movement gaining steam on the other side of the world.

The unfolding protests gripping Mexico began in the small town of Iguala, in the southwest region of Guerrero state, where the disappearance of 43 student teachers on the night of Sept. 26 has sparked outrage amid allegations of collaboration between local police and organized crime.

Those songs were battle hymns. They were not tours. They were wars that we fought.

The wasted space of roads designed for peak-car use 

[Via blogger cityhaul] “Georgia 400 construction, looking south toward Atlanta Financial Center, March 4, 1990.”

What an incredible photo this is. It shows the construction of Georgia highway 400 as it heads south into Atlanta’s Buckhead area and under a group of offices.I was just talking this evening about the amount of land in the city used for car infrastructure. There are many roads that are built wide for peak-use car capacity. Lanes are stretched out so that they can accommodate the masses of cars that pass through at peak hours. Think of all that space and how it goes underused and empty at off-peak times — meaning most of the hours in a day. And think of how wide it needs to be to channel cars versus trains, bikes or pedestrians, which all require less space per person. Think of how much walkable city could be built in that massive land space taken up by the highway in the above photo.
