  • How Do Smart Cities Stay Smart
    not just smart but agile making technology choices that let citizens adapt and improve on solutions they implement recently according to Lux Research About two thirds of the world population will live in urban centers by 2050 a migration of billions of people that will challenge today s infrastructure and governments to maintain quality of air and water health and safety and economic and social prosperity Top down technological solutions can t support the scale and diversity of changes that will happen in that time and risk turning cities into environmental and social dystopias Cities are under threat but they also remain nodes of innovation that will test pilot and deploy technologies that address the biggest threats to humanity said Alex Herceg Lux Research Analyst and lead author of the report titled Cities as Technologies Using Data and Analytics to Grow From Smart to Brilliant The key to success will be a learning mindset that allows open technologies allowing cities to embrace disruptive technologies of tomorrow he added Lux Research analysts evaluated technologies and providers identifying best practices in Air water and other natural resources Beijing struggles with dismal air quality while many other cities struggle with water or other natural resources Analytics vendors are jumping in to help IBM Smarter Water for example is developing networking solutions aimed at reducing water and energy use Electric autonomous transportation Public transit can alleviate pollution congestion parking and a host of other environmental and practical ills But the rise of ridesharing services like Uber and Apple s rumored autonomous electric car may be cheaper better ways to move people and goods in city spaces Physical safety and security Threats like earthquakes snowstorms crime and terrorism all worry city dwellers but they are concerned about pervasive surveillance from police drones and spyware too

  • Two Years After Chemical Poisoning Of West Virginia Drinking Water 38 WV Citizen Groups Reach Out To Flint We Are With You
    One year later short sighted West Virginia lawmakers are threatening to further scale back water safety rules Citizens are urging the legislators to restore crucial provisions stripped from the Aboveground Storage Tank regulations They are also urging the legislators to adopt recommendations of the Public Water System Supply Study Commission which was mandated by laws passed in 2014 According to the groups further erosion of aboveground storage tanks rules and ignoring the Commission s recommendations would make West Virginia dangerously vulnerable to a re occurrence of the disastrous 2014 chemical poisoning of key supply of the state s drinking water Safe drinking water is not just an urban problem in West Virginia Both in the coalfields of the south and the northern fracking fields access to clean potable water is a critical issue Commenting on the parallels to the situation now unfolding in Flint and the need for more vigilance on the part of state and federal lawmakers Charleston area resident Crystal Good said While the precise details are different the overall stories of poisoned water here in West Virginia and in Flint are essentially similar Although one is private water management and the other public in both cases the government has failed to safeguard clean drinking water especially in communities that are home predominantly to Black or low income families Access to safe water is a human right and its availability is ultimately the responsibility of government Paula Swearengin a resident of southern WV who volunteers with the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition WV Direct Action Welfare Group WV Chapter of Sierra Club and Friends of Water added We had to fight tooth and nail to gain some drinking water protections after the chemical spillâ and prior to it Industry has been lobbying politicians to roll back the post spill safeguards We demand our state politicians serve the people s interest MCHM and other chemicals are not strangers to the Appalachian water supply The Federal government is finally rightly examining just what is going on in Flint it should also look at the assorted water crises here in West Virginia and in other states We need a commitment to upgrading water infrastructure especially in communities facing public health emergencies by turning on their tap The joint letter to the people of Flint from the 37 West Virginia organizations reads as follows We are parents teachers faith leaders students business owners and residents of West Virginiaâ and we stand with you These last weeks we have seen you in the paper and on the news a mother with her children outside of a community center waiting to receive bottled water preachers giving comfort in packed emergency rooms filled with scared neighbors protesters gathering and calling on their government officials to take action Two years ago we stood in those same lines visited local emergency rooms and demonstrated in the halls of power because our water too had been poisoned A chemical tank failure contaminated the water of 300 000 people across
