Cykeln in i planeringen tidigare Vi anser att cykeln måste integreras fullständigt i trafiksystem och planering. Planering och drift ska ske på samma professionella sätt som för biltrafiken. Nyttan av ökad cykling måste in i planeringsprocessen, liksom hälsonyttan och det faktum att cykeln inte belastar miljön eller utsätter andra för olycksrisker på samma sätt som …

City of Toulouse Drops Microsoft Office for LibreOffice and Saves €1 Million ($1.34 Million)

More and more European cities are moving away from proprietary solutions to open source software in order to save money and to encourage people to use free applications. Cities from Germany, Italy, and Portugal made some very difficult choices and managed to adopt various open source solutions.

Getting rid of proprietary software and installing a free application might seem simple enough, but in fact there are also some costs that need to be taken into consideration. If the city of Toulouse was using Microsoft Office, for example, all they had to do in order to get a new version was to pay for the updates and that would be pretty much it.

“Software licenses for productivity suites cost Toulouse 1.8 million euro every three years. Migration cost us about 800,000 euro, due partly to some development. One million euro has actually been saved in the first three years. It is a compelling proof in the actual context of local public finance,” also says Erwane Monthuber, the person responsible with Toulouse's IT policy.

A 3D model of the fruit fly's brain's neurons has been made. It was developed by inventing a variation of the x-ray diffraction technique invented by chemists for determining the 3-dimensional structure of molecules.
Mapping the 3-D network structure of a fly’s brain is a major step forward. But it took 1,700 person-hours to complete, meaning that human labor will be a significant bottleneck for future advances.
