Standardized Metro Maps Around the World (by Jug Cerovic)

French-Serbian architect Jug Cerovic has standardized international subway maps with INAT, a guideline developed to unify the global metro network with easy to read and memorize charts. Each city’s center is enlarged, to make room for the multiplicity of lines and connecting stations. A standard set of symbols is applied to each map including the line colors, stations, connections and station labeling. Angles are gently curved for a smooth familiar look and linear paths are represented vertically, horizontally, or 45, with no more than 5 bends on their entire length. Highly representative shapes are used for specific ubran features: a ring for Moscow and Paris, a parallelogram for London, and regularly spaced parallel lines for gridded street patterns like new York. All text is labelled in both local and latin characters and are legible on small sized prints for pocket use and suitable for display on a wide array of supports.

The paper I’m working on requires Chicago citations. I’m assuming that this means that the sources are delivered to the tune of sultry jazz while performing a striptease.

As a writing tutor, I can confirm this.

"You should kiss the ground you walk on if you were born in this country— take it from an old man who once had to wear the Star of David on his shirt. There’s a safety to living in such a diverse place. It’s much more difficult to brainwash a population that is composed of so many different nationalities and so many different viewpoints."

Errors in Inquiry on Rape Allegations Against FSU’s Jameis Winston 

moolisstagram:

In fact, an examination by The New York Times has found that there was virtually no investigation at all, either by the police or the university.

The police did not follow the obvious leads that would have quickly identified the suspect as well as witnesses, one of whom videotaped part of the sexual encounter. After the accuser identified Mr. Winston as her assailant, the police did not even attempt to interview him for nearly two weeks and never obtained his DNA.

The detective handling the case waited two months to write his first report and then prematurely suspended his inquiry without informing the accuser. By the time the prosecutor got the case, important evidence had disappeared, including the video of the sexual act.

I read this article from The NY Times earlier this morning but forgot to post it here. It’s about how Florida State University and the Tallahassee Police Department blatantly mishandled the rape allegations against Jameis Winston (star QB for the FSU football team, who led them to a national championship this past season, also this year’s Heisman Trophy winner). It’s very long, and it goes really in-depth, but I think it’s really, really important to read when you have the time.

The way the entire case was handled is absolutely shameful and embarrassing. It was disgusting to watch Jameis go freely about the rest of the football season and be awarded the highest honor in the college football world this year. It was disgusting to watch the attorneys laugh at the press conference where it was announced that Jameis was found “not guilty.” And it was disgusting to see guys tweet after that announcement, saying things like, “Jameis is a hero to us all.”

I can’t believe authority figures can get away with just choosing not to really do anything about allegations like this just because the allegations happen to be against the school’s star quarterback. And I can’t believe people celebrate it. It just upsets me so much.
