Alasdair Rae (who has a great blog by the way) has posted a nice short collection of maps comparing the commuting hinterland of some major UK cities.

I will present a case study on the transport legacies of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) and discuss the distributive aspects of how such developments affect different income groups in terms of their transport accessibility to hospitals, schools and job opportunities. This is one of the papers of my doctoral research, so I'd be glad to get any feedback
if I don't put the audience to sleep .

Last week, I posted a link to a terrific visual and interactive explanation of the difference between Gridlock and Bottlenecks.
I guess one could say gridlocks are one of the causes of traffic jam when there is no bottleneck. This video shows a real demonstration of this. (via Gonçalo Correia)

The latest issue of Nature Energy is out. There is an interesting paper that puts together a miscellaneous of concepts from different theories in political philosophy to build an "energy justice framework centred on availability, affordability, due process, transparency and accountability, sustainability, equity and responsibility".
The authors recognize eventual conflicts between these different ideas but I think they don't make it very clear how the ethical framework they propose actually overcomes such conflicts. In any case, it's a good read.
Thanks Tim Schwanen for the tip.
