Arlington, Virginia Passes Important Housing Reforms, But More Work To Be Done
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin A few days ago, the board of Arlington County, Virginia voted unanimously to allow multi-family housing structures—often called “missing middle” housing—in neighborhoods that were exclusively zoned for single family homes. This is a great win for supporters of more housing, but there is more work to do. Arlington has some of the highest housing prices in Virginia. According to data from Zillow , the typical home in Arlington is valued at $747,335, which is the 17 th highest in the state. And it is not unique among Northern Virginia (NoVA) cities: The Washington D.C. metro area, where Arlington is located, has 28 of the 30 most expensive housing markets in Virginia.

Court Rules That Internet Archive Violated Publishers’ Copyrights By Lending Ebooks
(CTN News) – In a high-profile case brought by the Internet Archive against a group of four US publishers led by Hachette Book Group, a federal judge has ruled in favor of the publishers.

A lawsuit was filed over the Internet Archive’s decision to launch a “ National Emergency Library ” during the early stages of the pandemic. As a result of the program, the organization provided access to more than 1.4 million free ebooks, including copyrighted works, in response to the closure of libraries worldwide due to Coronavirus lockdowns.

Beauty Pageants And Academia – The Perfect Contradiction?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin When you think of beauty pageants, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Probably not academia, social responsibility or sustainable finance. Dr Ana Nacvalovaite, Research fellow at Kellogg College, University of Oxford, says otherwise. Aside from being a distinguished academic and renowned expert within her field of work, Ana is also Mrs Great Britain, and will soon be competing in the semi-finals for “Mrs Globe”. At first it may seem like a contradiction, but for Ana, the world of pageants and academia intersect in several ways. “Beauty pageants have given me a platform to promote social and environmental issues that are important to me, such as gender equality, human rights, and sustainability. It has given me a stage to speak” she tells me. “As an academic, I'm passionate about promoting social responsibility and sustainability and all aspects of society. So, my involvement in the beauty pageant has given … [Read more...] about Beauty Pageants And Academia – The Perfect Contradiction?
