Hou-Zuccotti-1A_525__1_.jpgADPSR board member Jeffery Hou's essay on civic action was just published in Design Observer/Places. The essay is an excerpt from his chapter in Beyond Zuccotti Park: Freedom of Assembly and the Occupation of Public Space. The book explores the definition, use, role, and importance of public space for the exercise of demoncratic rights to free expression. Hou shifts the emphasis from physical space to citizen action. We need to focus not just on ensuring the right to public assembly, he writes, but also on "the making and mobilization of the public as an actively engaged citizenry." It is this that "enables a public space to remain public and continue to serve as vehicle -- a building block -- of our participatory democracy."

Here's a link to the Design Observer/Places essay.

Jeffery Hou is associate professor and chair of landscape architecture at the University of Washington, Seattle.

Do some self-learning. Find books and websites that help you learn hardware, networking and operating systems. Classes aren't necessary to register for most certification exams--you can prepare at home.

I remember my dentist in Goose Creek told me that our dental health is the mirror of our overall health. I've read some articles, like the link between oral health with cardiac health, and now this article.

Some people need a strict diet plan to help them lose fat by not eating white bread and pasta. If you are this type of person, look into a low carb diet like Eat to Live or the McDougall Plan for Maximum Weight Loss.

Allocate the available space. Remember that in addition to dining and kitchen areas you'll need room for dishwashing, storage, bathrooms and administrative work.

Before changes can be made to the mind and mindset of our civic leaders, there may be something to learn from the scene in Union Square after all. Perhaps the next time the Occupy protesters try to infiltrate the park, they can do so by starting a pillow fight. The pillows may eventually come in handy anyway, that is to shield against the police batons. It may sound off-putting. But unfortunately, this appears to be the state of our democracy in the 21st Century. - http://kiosprodukkecantikan.com/
