Dawn of the Smart City? Perspectives From New York, Ahmedabad, Sao Paulo, and Beijing

Are we in the age of the smart city? Will everyday existence be transformed by big data and its broad scale application to a range of public services and other central issues? This thoughtful set of meditations was released in June 2014 by scholars at the Wilson Center’s Urban Sustainability Laboratory. The cities profiled in this report are New York, Ahmedabad, Sao Paulo, and Beijing, and scholars with first-hand knowledge of each metropole present their own findings in this 24-page report. There’s much to think about here as the scholars make reference to public space transformation, urban agriculture, and economic development strategies of note.

Everett Massacre Collection

The Everett Massacre on November 5, 1916 was a tragic end to weeks of social unrest and general upheaval between labor and management around the world. This digital collection from the University of Washington Libraries documents labor’s perspective on the event, also known as Everett’s Bloody Sunday, through newspaper articles, postcards, photographs, and fliers. First-time visitors might wish to start with the essay titled, “What Happened That Day in Everett.” Visitors can browse the complete collection or check out the sample searches, such as “Everett Defense Newsletters” and “Seattle Union Record.”

Prosperity at a Crossroads: Targeting Drivers of Economic Growth for Greater Kansas City
A big question for many cities is “What’s next?” Can they count on growth in the medical sector or in higher education? Examining the environs around Kansas City, this thoughtful report from the Brookings Institution brings together some research on economic performance. The report was authored by a team of policy experts, including Amy Liu and Chad Shearer, and was released in June 2014. Visitors can read the executive summary on the site or may wish to simply look over the basic findings, which are front and center on this page. Some of the observations indicate the greater Kansas City area is confronting global and political forces that “require renewed attention on the core drivers of economic growth and prosperity.”

 

The United States and the Two Koreas, Part II: 1969-2010
How might one characterize the relationship between the Koreas and the United States over the past forty years or so? Well, to quote a popular social networking site, “It’s complicated.” This electronic briefing book from the National Security Archive at George Washington University brings together a wide range of declassified documents that provide insight into the political and security challenges on the peninsula under Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and George H.W. Bush. The nineteen items here include a report with a near-verbatim account of meetings between U.S. and North Korean military officers and the detailed “Guide to Working and Living in Nyongbyon, DPRK” that addresses some of the practical challenges associated with travel, living and working in North Korea.
