While browsing around reading transport cycling news, I ran across a blog post from the UK from the second half of September: Bas' Blog: Coming to London: cycle paths fully separated from other traffic (vote!) 23 September 2014:
This morning in my inbox:
I am writing to let you know that Transport for London, in partnership with the boroughs of Southwark, Camden, Islington and the City of London, would like your views on proposals for a new Cycle Superhighway between Elephant & Castle and King’s Cross.
Yes please! TFL is asking for comments on the plans in a public consultation. More information on the plans can be found here (East-West route) and here (North-South route), you can leave comments here (E-W) and here (N-S).
,,, and when I looked around, stories about segregated "cycle paths" or "cycle tracks" or "cycleways" were not that hard to find. Join me below the fold for a look. Read below the fold...
WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton has a comfortable lead among Democrats for the 2016 presidential nomination, while the Republican race remains a free-for-all, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.Read below the fold...
DAVENPORT | Sen. Bernie Sanders, who will be in Iowa this weekend testing the waters for a potential 2016 presidential bid, said Thursday that American voters are angrier at many of the country’s institutions than many realize — and even though they want real change, most will sit out this year’s midterm elections.
“What we have to appreciate right now is there is a great demoralization politically in this country,” Sanders said in an interview with the Quad-City Times.
Still, the senator has been showing up on the doorstep of the first-in-the-nation caucus state. He was at an event in Clinton County in May. And he also appeared in the state three weeks ago, the same weekend as Sen. Tom Harkin’s final steak fry, which featured Clinton in her first return to the state since her loss in the 2008 caucuses.
I'm not sure I agree with this. Read below the fold...

The master theory of the Hong Kong protests will have to wait for another day; in this post, I'm going to collect vignettes from the ground: Crowd scenes, maps, images, tactics, the role of the built environment. I may, as needed, make reference to Gene Sharp's 198 Methods of Non-Violent Protest and Resistance, since the Hong Kong protests are explicitly non-violent. First, I'll start with the cell phones at night:

A tear in the TTIP disinformation matrix? What should we make of the EU ISDS/Cecilia Malmström affair?
What do people think about this interesting developing story about the flip flops on TTIP (TISA?) ISDS taken by incoming European Commission-designate Cecilia Malmström?
Anyway, I think the developing Malmström story bears watching.
