Nº1789: deforestation, transportation, gmaps

Mon, 28 Mar 2022 by Raf

* The Amazon lost about 1.9 million hectares in 2021, similar to
annual forest loss rates in 2020 and 2019, mainly as a result of
livestock and other agricultural activities, especially in Brazil.


* New York's gray traffic: Unofficial shuttles, called 'dollar vans'
in some neighborhoods, are a thriving transportation system that works
where subways and buses can't reach


* A careful dissection of the Google Maps app, monolithic in
appearance but really a grouping of services, to identify the basic
components and propose alternative solutions to each piece
