Something for local planners to think about. "Yarra Ranges Council consulted with local primary school children, asking them what they wanted out of the redevelopment.

"It looks a little less exciting than other play spaces," Robyn Mansfield, council manager of built and active spaces, told ABC Radio Melbourne's Jacinta Parsons.

"One of the themes that really came through with the children was they had this very strong connection with nature, so they wanted that to be the dominant theme.

"They didn't want the bright colours, they didn't want the plastic, but they wanted challenging things — things that they could climb, things that they could jump off."

It may also surprise some parents to hear that children said they wanted to share the playground.

"They actually wanted a space where their parents will play with them," Ms Mansfield said.

"Where their older siblings will want to play with them, where their grandparents will want to play with them."

The playground is part of a trend towards intergenerational play spaces; parks that cater to all ages, including adults and teenagers.
[...]
It seems to be working — Ms Mansfield said the oldest known person to have used the new park's monkey bars was 87."

Prevention makes sense. To prevent disease, we vaccinate. To prevent traffic deaths, we install seat belts. While we recognize intuitively that preventing homelessness is a good idea, there has been little movement in Canada to make that happen on a national scale. A New Direction: A Framework for Homelessness Prevention sets out to provide the language and clarity to begin that conversation. #cdnpoli

When we first discovered bacteria and viruses the discovery was by way of their destructive effects. As a result we have developed a misconception that bacteria, and viruses are harmful. While this is true in some cases, it is certainly not true in all cases. These "voices" in the biological choir of life have both sour and harmonious capacities depending on what context they are played in. We are now beginning to understand how to leverage some of their capacities to our advantage. Here is one example:

From the article: "Scientists... have successfully used an experimental therapy involving bacteriophages — viruses that target and consume specific strains of bacteria — to treat a patient near death from a multidrug-resistant bacterium."
