URBANIZATION   Can we ever build a healthy city? For the increasing population of city dwellers worldwide, leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t just about eating well and doing regular exercise – the infrastructure and environmental factors of the city itself also play a crucial role. But creating an entire city that can be called a “healthy city” is no simple task. The first goal is to conquer what is conquerable, says Franz Jenowein, director of JLL’s Sustainability Consulting. City governments should focus on what they can control – like access to hospitals, green spaces and active modes of transport such as walking and cycling. But it’s also important to provide health enhancing features to cities and to do so in manageable chunks. “Districts within a city are a great place to start and they allow private initiatives to be integrated more easily because an entire city is too large to control and more costly as well,” Jenowein says. This district by district approach to developing a healthier city has, in fact, proven to be a popular strategy across the globe. Taking an entirely innovative approach to the healthy city are the people behind the $2 billion, 40 acre project in Tampa, Florida that will bring about the world’s first WELL certified city district. Based on the fact that most people now spend about 90 percent of their lives indoors, the WELL criteria of building performance consists of seven categories: air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. Applying the technology and design strategies used in smart cities, the mixed use development project will include enhanced walkability, low pollen trees, sound barriers, green infrastructure and daily air quality monitoring. Slated to begin construction in 2017, this project in Tampa is proposed as an example of how cities of the world can be designed with citizens’ health in mind. A new urban environment

Hippopotamus by Lakkisettymadhu

    Hippopotamus From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "Hippo" redirects here. For other uses, see Hippo (disambiguation). This article is about the species Hippopotamus amphibius. For other uses, see Hippopotamus (disambiguation). Common hippopotamus Conservation status Vulnerable (IUCN 3.1)[1] Scientific classification Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Artiodactyla Family: Hippopotamidae Genus: Hippopotamus Linnaeus, 1758 Species: H. amphibius Binomial name Hippopotamus amphibius Linnaeus, 1758[2] Range map of hippopotamus. Historic range is in red while current range is in green.[1] The common hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus (Choeropsis liberiensis orHexaprotodon liberiensis). The name comes from the ancient Greek for "river horse" (ἱπποπόταμος). After the elephant andrhinoceros, the common hippopotamus is the third-largest type of land mammal and the heaviest extant artiodactyl. Despite their physical resemblance to pigs and other terrestrial even-toed ungulates, the closest living relatives of the Hippopotamidae arecetaceans (whales, porpoises, etc.) from which they diverged about 55 million years ago. The common ancestor of whales and hippos split from other even-toed ungulates around 60 million years ago. The earliest known hippopotamus fossils, belonging to thegenus Kenyapotamus in Africa, date to around 16 million years ago. Common hippos are recognisable by their barrel-shaped torsos, wide-opening mouths revealing large canine tusks, nearly hairless bodies, columnar-like legs and large size; adults average 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) and 1,300 kg (2,900 lb) for males and females respectively, making them the largest species of land mammal after the three species of elephants and the white and Indian rhinoceros. Despite its stocky shape and short legs, it is capable of running 30 km/h (19 mph) over short distances. The hippopotamus is a highly aggressive and unpredictable animal and is ranked among the most dangerous animals in Africa.[3]Nevertheless, they are still threatened by habitat loss and poaching for their meat and ivory canine teeth. The common hippopotamus is semiaquatic, inhabiting rivers, lakes and mangrove swamps, where territorial

5 Reasons to Buy the Ford Mustang

  5 Reasons to Buy the Ford Mustang American auto maker Ford very recently launched their iconic vehicle, the Mustang, which inspired a whole new class of cars (called pony cars) in India.

AVTOTO METRO STATION (ST

AVTOTO METRO STATION (ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA) Avtovo (Russian: А́втово) is a station on the Kirovsko-Vyborgskaya Line of the Saint Petersburg Metro.Designed by architect Yevgenii Levinson (ru), it opened as part of the first Leningrad Metro line on November 15, 1955. Avtovo entrance vestibule Avtovo's unique and highly ornate design features columns faced with ornamental glass manufactured at the Lomonosovfactory.[3] Although the original plan envisaged using glass on all of the columns in the station, white marble was substituted on some due to time constraints. This marble was supposed to be temporary, but it has never been replaced. The walls are faced with white marble and adorned on the north side by a row of ornamental ventilation grilles. At the end of the platform a mosaic by V.A. Voronetskiy and A.K. Sokolov commemorates the Leningrad Blockade (1941-1944) during the Second World War. Unlike the other stations on the first line, Avtovo is a shallow-level station, constructed using the cut and cover method. It belongs to the shallow column class of underground stations. &

The most memorable Olympic Games opening ceremonie

The most memorable Olympic Games opening ceremonies The Olympic opening ceremonies provide a perfect opportunity for host nations to mesmerize the world with a spectacular display and go down in history as one of the best. With just a few months remaining for the games in Rio de Janeiro, let’s look at some of the grandest Olympic opening ceremonies over the decades. London (2012) © KeystoneUSA-ZUM/Rex Shutterstock The London ceremony showcased thousands of years of rich British history in a dazzling spectacle directed by acclaimed British director Danny Boyle. Titled Isles of Wonder, the ceremony included massive sets depicting the English countryside and opened with a sketch with stunt doubles playing the Queen and Daniel Craig as James Bond jumping from a helicopter and parachuting down into the stadium – a sequence that took everyone by surprise. © Chris Ratcliffe/Bloomberg In one of the biggest uses of LED lights ever, over 70,000 pixel panels were situated throughout the arena, and in between seats. The spectators were given paddles to turn the pixel pads into an amazing light show, creating new standards of audience participation in an event of this scale. Music from some of the biggest British artists and rock bands including David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Mike Oldfield, Adele, Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones provided ample star power and glamour. With Paul McCartney performing the classic "Hey Jude" it was a perfect end to a spectacular evening.  Beijing (2008) © Lucas Oleniuk/Toronto Star via Getty Images The opening ceremony of the 29th Olympic Games was held at the Beijing National Stadium, also known as the Bird's Nest. The ceremony was directed by Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou and was held in two parts titled "Brilliant Civilization" and "Glorious Era.” It focused on Chinese culture and was lauded for its creativity. © Paul Kitagaki Jr./Sacramento Bee/MCT via Getty Images A giant light-up LED screen was placed in the center of the stadium and the event featured 15,000 performers. The most spectacular moment was when dancers in red performed on a giant sphere which suspended in the air. The ceremony lasted over four hours and reportedly cost over US$100 million. Athens (2004)

Nissan Builds Spectacular, Road-going Electric Del

Nissan Builds Spectacular, Road-going Electric DeltaWing November 8th, 2013 by Jo Borrás    The car you see here is the culmination of the collaboration between Nissan and Ben Bowlby, the alien super-brain behind the DeltaWing racecar and Nissan’s upcoming ZEOD RC electric LeMans racer. It’s called the BladeGlider, and it just won all the car shows- the guys from Toyota andMitsubishi might as well pack it up re: Tokyo, and just try harder at the next one. When I saw the BladeGlider pop up on Jalopnik this morning … … yeah. It was like that. As far as the hardware is concerned, Nissan’s BladeGlider reportedly uses a number of existing Leaf components, from drive bits to batteries, making it a simple enough thing to put into production if, you know, I’m a good boy and Santa grants all my Christmas wishes or something- and I might be! Nissan’s official word on the topic makes it seem like that’s a when, not an if. From the press release: “When BladeGlider matures into a production car, it could be Nissan’s first use of in-wheel motors. The in-wheel motors provide rear-wheel propulsion with independent motor management, while also contributing to freedom of upper body design and space-efficient packaging.” Oh, yeah! As an exercise in packaging existing hardware into a sexier, slinkier package, the BladeGlider wins, hand-down. It’s the sexiest Nissan Leaf you’ll ever be able to buy, and- with three seats- you might even be able to talk the wife into one. Maybe. (Hopefully).

6 Vegetarian Recipes From South India

6 Vegetarian Recipes From South India Medu Vada © Manjula's Kitchen Medu Vada Image credit: Manjula's Kitchen Who doesn’t love the good ol’ combination of vada-sambhar? Most of us have never been able to say no to the soft vadas which seem like they hold a world of all-things-perfect inside them. While the process might seem easy, it all lies in the art of grinding the perfect batter and deep frying it for just the right time. Recipe Type: breakfast, snacks Cuisine: south indian Serves: 10-12 medu vadas Ingredients: (measuring cup used, 1 cup = 250 ml) 2 cups urad dal/skinned split black gram 1 tsp cumin seeds 1 tsp black peppercorns, whole or crushed (optional) 1 or 2 sprig curry leaves, chopped 1 onion, finely chopped (optional) 1 or 2 green chili, chopped 1 tbsp chopped ginger ½ cup chopped coconut pieces (optional) few sprigs of coriander leaves, chopped (optional) salt to taste oil for deep frying some water if needed to make the batter Instructions: Soak the urad dal for 4 hours or overnight. Grind the soaked dal to a smooth batter with little water if required. If the batter becomes watery, then the instant relief would be to add some semolina or urad dal flour to it. Otherwise also you could add some semolina to the batter. Add the spices, herbs, onions and salt. heat oil. make the vadas as described above. Gently slid the vadas in to the oil. the oil should be not very hot, but mediumly hot. You want the vadas to be cooked from inside. Very hot oil will quickly brown the vadas from outside but they will remain uncooked from inside... So slow and steady wins the race here :-) Fry all the medu vadas this way till they become evenly browned and crisp. Drain medu vadas on kitchen tissue to remove excess oil. Serve the medu vadas, hot or warm with sambar and coconut chutney. Notes: When making medu vada for fasting, then don't add onions.
