Recovery? It’s no sweat!

June 26, 2006 at 1:15 am 10 comments

Yesterday's Festival of Neighborhoods went off without a hitch. I was there representing UNO's College of Urban and Public Affairs. It was, perhaps, my first effort of purely academic historic preservation, as the College itself is set to be demolished in a week.

Luckily, we didn't have to answer many tough questions about the fate of CUPA. This is because we spend the entire day explaing that we were neither advocates nor critics of modular housing. We'd decorated our table with some posters from a planning class' recent recovery plan for Gentilly, and they included a suggestion that manufactured housing might possibly, maybe, in some cases be an affordable option for some people.

Note to self: never associate oneself with modular housing. People are really freaking militant about it.

Between being inspired by all the great planning work and complaining about the stifling heat, I got a chance to snap a few pictures. Take a look at them by clicking on the image at the top of the post.

    I’d love to get your e-mail address and be back in touch. I’m still in Missouri while my husband finishes up various law school responsibilities, but we have been back many times since the storm and are planning to move home for good in about a year. I’m so impressed with all the work you’re doing!

    Eve! It’s so good to hear from you. It’s also a huge coincedence that you posted this now because I’m actually in St. Louis for the week visiting Andrew Benko and his wife. They’re both being ordained today as Episcopal priests! We need to keep in touch and get together the next time you’re in New Orleans.

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.
