Long before the Arab Spring and its use of social media demonstrated the potent intersection between technology and revolution, the Mexican Revolution employed wireless technology in the form of radiotelegraphy and radio broadcasting to alter the course of the revolution and influence how political leaders reconstituted the government. Radio in Revolution, an innovative study of early radio technologies and the Mexican Revolution, examines the foundational relationship between electronic wireless technologies, single-party rule, and authoritarian practices in Mexican media. J. Justin Castro bridges the Porfiriato and the Mexican Revolution, discussing the technological continuities and change that set the stage for Lazaro Cardenas's famous radio decree calling for the expropriation of foreign oil companies. Not only did the nascent development of radio technology represent a major component in government plans for nation and state building, its interplay with state power in Mexico also transformed it into a crucial component of public communication services, national cohesion, military operations, and intelligence gathering. Castro argues that the revolution had far-reaching ramifications for the development of radio and politics in Mexico and reveals how continued security concerns prompted the revolutionary victors to view radio as a threat even while they embraced it as an essential component of maintaining control.

15. Sustainable streets [2015] Online

Book
1 online resource (515 pages in various pagings) : color illustrations Digital: text file.
During the past several years, momentum behind the Complete Streets (or sustainable streets) movement has continued to increase, fueled by a public desire for walkable, bikeable streets with options aside from driving. A national survey released in September 2012 showed that 55% of Americans want to drive less, but 74% say they have no choice [1]. Public sentiment has begun placing greater value on having other options available, whether for commuting, trips to the grocery store, or simply for recreation. While much of San Mateo is safe and convenient, a Sustainable Streets Plan presents an opportunity for the City to formalize a framework that will guide the development of a first-class transportation network that will allow for safe movement by any individual whether by car, on bike or on foot. Streets represent a large portion of the public space, and as such, have the opportunity to have a significant impact on wellness, recreation, ecology, economic development, and interaction with public spaces. This planning effort built upon existing planning efforts such as the Citywide Pedestrian Master Plan and Bicycle Master Plan to ensure that priority networks throughout the City can be implemented, while also ensuring that all streets provide a basic level of access and mobility for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users. The city's approach in developing this plan carried one key goal: implementation of sustainable streets in the City of San Mateo for the benefit of our residents present and future.

Roughly 1.25 million people die each year around the world in traffic accidents. This report covers goals set by the United Nations Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety, introduced in 2011. It provides a comprehensive overview, including the status and key results of its goals, as well as descriptions of specific UNECE Inland Transport Committee initiatives and information on the challenges the road safety community faces. The main conclusion is that political will, and the introduction and use of national strategies are likely to be the difference makers in halving the number of deaths and injuries by 2020. The path to road safety is a personal, societal and an organizational obligation as a joint responsibility outlined in this publication.
