  2. Voici un projet fort intéressant... qui pourrait peut-être s'appliquer pour notre fleuve. Vous savez, il y a deux options pour le l'environnement et le design : High design/Low tech Vs. Low Design/High tech.... je prèfère de loin la première! Oyster-tecture: Scape Studio Plans to Build a Park Filled with Millions of Oysters to Clean the Gowanus Canal NYC has some great oyster bars, but its most in-demand shellfish yet may soon be coming to the Gowanus Canal instead of to your favorite seafood restaurant. Scape Studio has received funding for its ambitious Oyster-tecture project – an oyster park for millions of mollusks at the mouth of Brooklyn’s Gowanus Canal. Oysters have the unique ability to ‘eat’ toxins and dirt, so the new park could be just the way to clean up what is currently one of the nation’s most polluted waterways. “We propose to nurture an active oyster culture that engages issues of water quality, rising tides, and community based development around Brooklyn’s Red Hook and Gowanus Canal,” explains Kate Orff of Scape Architecture on their website. ”An armature for the growth of native oysters and marine life is designed for the shallow waters of the Bay Ridge Flats just south of Red Hook. This living reef is constructed from a field of piles and a woven web of “fuzzy rope” that supports oyster growth and builds a rich three-dimensional landscape mosaic. A watery regional park for the New York Harbor emerges that prefigures the city’s return to the waterfront in the next century. The reef attenuates waves and cleans millions of gallons of Harbor water through harnessing the biotic processes of oysters, mussels and eelgrass, and enables neighborhood fabrics that welcome the water to develop further inland.” This ‘oyster-tecture’ has been described as a 21st-century approach to creating new waterfront infrastructures where long-gone shellfish can be brought back. Construction has already begun on the new pier area that is to host Orff’s reef. In fact, oysters are one of nature’s best cleaners as they have the ability to filter 50 gallons of water a day! Oysters were once plentiful in the waters around New York, but died out by the turn of the 19th century due to industrial waste, sewage, diseases and the dredging of the harbor to make room for shipping and development. Now, marine scientists believe that new beds of oysters could break down pollution in areas where the water temperature, currents, chemistry and other conditions are right. Of course, due to their ‘cleaning’ of toxins, these oysters will never be eaten and any poachers aiming to harvest them for profit will be prosecuted. http://inhabitat.com/nyc/oyster-tecture-scape-studio-plans-to-build-a-park-filled-with-millions-of-oysters-to-clean-the-gowanus-canal/
  3. GFCI 16 provides profiles, rating and rankings for 83 financial centres, drawing on two separate sources of data - instrumental factors (external indices) and responses to an online survey. 105 factors have been used in GFCI 16, of which 42 have been updated since GFCI 15 and 4 are new. New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore remain the top four centres. All fourt centres lose.points in the GFCI ratings but retain their relative ranks. New York remains the top centre but by only one point on a scale of 1,000. Following GFCI 15, London remains just behind New York due to uncertainty over the UK’s position in Europe, regulatory creep and the UK appearing to be less welcoming to foreigners all being contributing factors. ... Montreal went from 16th to 18th but still is in the top 20 !! http://www.zyen.com

  10. Canada ranks 2nd among 10 countries for cost competitiveness, says KPMG THE CANADIAN PRESS 03.29.2016 TORONTO - Accounting giant KPMG says Canada has proven to be second most competitive market in a comparison test of 10 leading industrial countries. In its report, KPMG says Canada lags only behind Mexico when it comes to how little businesses have to pay for labour, facilities, transportation and taxes. The report, which compared the competitiveness of a number of western countries along with Australia and Japan, found that a high U.S. dollar has helped Canada stay affordable despite rising office real estate costs and lower federal tax credits. When it comes to corporate income taxes, it found that Canada, the U.K. and the Netherlands had the lowest rates overall due to tax incentives to support high-tech and research and development. KPMG also looked at the competitiveness of more than 100 cities worldwide. It ranked Fredericton, N.B., as the most cost-effective city in Canada due to low labour costs and continued low costs for property leases. Montreal topped the list among 34 major cities in North America, followed by Toronto and Vancouver. The three Canadian cities beat out all U.S. cities. Although there have been concerns over the impact of a weakening loonie on the economy, having a low Canadian dollar has actually been "a driver in improving Canada's competitiveness and overall cost advantage," KPMG said. As a result, that has made it more attractive for businesses to set up shop north of the border than in the U.S., it said. http://www.montrealgazette.com/business/canada+ranks+among+countries+cost+competitiveness+says+kpmg/11817781/story.html

  12. $1.5 billion is being pumped into a massive city re-design. Source: FastCompany San Juan, Puerto Rico, is not exactly the sort of place you’d imagine to be in dire need of a facelift and urban renewal. Images of a gorgeous coastline and old colonial architecture come to mind, but guess what? The old part of the city, "the Isleta," is rife with poor urban planning scars, such as inaccessible beaches due to ports and an excessive reliance on cars. The government has decided to infuse the city with $1.5 billion dollars to re-develop San Juan and, most of all, make it a walking city, with no cars allowed. The plan, announced last month, also lays out a new mass transit network, new roads and intersections, and beach access points. The motivation for the city re-design is in part due to the city’s massive decrease in population over the years (see infographic below). By making the old city more appealing, the government of Puerto Rico hopes to see more people staying put and moving in. Hey, I’ll come by if you can ensure that Mark Anthony and Jennifer Lopez won’t run me over! But in the meantime, New Yorkers, watch out!
  13. I am no economist, so can someone explain to me why China would keep their currency down and now have it slowly rise against the USD? Not sure if what I am thinking is a negative thing or positive thing. If things start getting more expensive to be manufactured in China, wouldn't that mean more jobs coming back here? When I am mean here back to North America.
  14. Vendredi 5 Octobre 2007 La métropole aura sa première ruelle champêtre. Des travaux sont présentement en cours dans la ruelle du quadrilatère Henri-Julien/Drolet/avenue des Pins/Carré St-Louis afin de lui donner une fière allure. C'est l'entreprise Val Nature qui a reçu le mandat d'embellir et verdir cette ruelle. Val Nature va aussi produire un guide d'embellissement et de verdissement des ruelles de Montréal. Inspiré par des réalisations similaires notamment à Vancouver, ce réaménagement consistera en un remplacement partiel de la chaussée asphaltée par une structure géosynthétique, permettant à un couvre-sol végétal de pousser. Ces travaux se réaliseront en conservant les acquis passés puisque cette ruelle a été désignée gagnante dans la catégorie " Ruelles vertes " du concours d'embellissement 2006. La naturalisation des ruelles permettra de diminuer la température due aux ilôts de chaleur et de laisser une plus large place à la verdure, en plus d'améliorer la qualité de l'air et de favoriser l'infiltration naturelle des eaux de pluie. " Ce projet témoigne de notre engagement à protéger, valoriser et accroître le patrimoine vert de notre arrondissement ", a commenté la mairesse de l'arrondissement du Plateau Mont-Royal, Helen Fotopoulos.

  16. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Barcode Project is a section of the Bjørvika portion of the Fjord City redevelopment on former dock and industrial land in central Oslo. It consists of a row of new multi-purpose high-rise buildings, due to be completed in 2014. The developer is marketing the project as "The Opera Quarter." There has been intense public debate about the height and shape of the buildings. video from Kristian Larsen
  17. A revolt over South Africa’s roads It doesn’t toll for thee A road-tolling scheme conjures up people power May 12th 2012 | JOHANNESBURG | from the print edition AT NIGHT the steel scaffolding over the suburban freeways lit up in a striking blue looks rather pretty. But the gantries supporting the new electronic tolls for roads in Gauteng, South Africa’s richest and most populous province, had come to represent the state’s bullying power—and were loathed. Now, in a rare display of people power, the project, due to have begun on April 30th, has been put off indefinitely. The South African National Roads Agency (Sanral) had argued that it needed to impose the tolls, ranging from 58 cents (7.5 American cents) a kilometre for a car to 2.90 rand for an articulated lorry, in order to repay the loan of 20 billion rand it had had to take out to repair and improve 185kms (115 miles) of congested freeways in and around Johannesburg, the business hub, O.R. Tambo, its airport, the country’s busiest and Pretoria, the capital. The owners of the province’s 1m vehicles argued that they had not been properly consulted, the tariffs were too high and anyway they should not have to pay for suburban commuters’ routes that had never been intended as toll roads. People were obliged to use cars to get to work because there was no safe and affordable public-transport alternative. Furthermore, the high-tech toll system would cost more than the actual road improvements. Black and white, rich and poor united in outrage. The 2m-strong Congress of South African Trade Unions staged a one-day strike and threatened another bigger one unless the whole system was scrapped. Business leaders moaned that it would increase their costs and deter investors. Operators of minibus taxis feared it would drive them out of business. The Automobile Association urged members not to sign up for the so-called e-tags, which provide for toll discounts but also allow bank accounts to be charged every time a car passes under one of the gantries. The government offered a one-off 5.8 billion rand to subsidise the tolls for private users and exempt minibus taxis entirely:rotfl:. But the protests went on. So it then agreed to a one-month postponement. This was still not enough. Finally, with two days to go before the scheme’s launch, a high court judge stopped its implementation to allow time for a judicial review. This could take months, perhaps even years. Perhaps it will never be implemented. The government, underwriting 56% of Sanral’s debt of 38 billion rand, has been left with a big financial mess. The company has already lost 2.7 billion rand in revenue due to earlier postponements of the e-tolling scheme. Every month of delay is reckoned to cost it another 300m rand. Nazir Alli, the company’s boss, has been forced to resign as the fall-guy. Meanwhile, the blue gantries, now a symbol of people power, still merrily light up the Gauteng night sky. http://www.economist.com/node/21554553?frsc=dg%7Ca
