Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Designing conflict in #2: bar crawls

Bar crawls are designed to promote negative behavior -- basically lots of drinking, inebriation, etc., which usually includes a lot of misbehavior, public drunkenness and nuisance crimes like public urination, vomiting, litter, etc.

So, if you don't want misbehavior, gross public drunkenness, public urination, massive amounts of litter, etc., you probably should outlaw bar crawls, even if it costs bars some business.

This has been a problem in DC and Arlington.

-- "After a Disastrous Halloween, D.C. Bar Crawls Face New Regulations," Washington City Paper, 2016
-- Pub Crawl Applications and Requirements, DC Alcoholic Beverage Regulatory Administration
-- "New rules for St. Patrick's pub crawl in Arlington aim to curb drunken hijinks," 2015

And according to the Guardian, it's a big problem in Prague, "The fall of Prague: 'Drunk tourists are acting like they conquered our city."

This is a classic case of "designing conflict in."

Both Adderall and Vyvanse are a central nervous system stimulants. ...The difference between the drugs is Adderall contains amphetamine salts (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine), whereas Vyvanse contains lisdexamfetamine, which the body converts to dextroamphetamine before it is active, meaning it's a "prodrug."
Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and binge-eating disorder. Includes Vyvanse side

Suboxone is a prescription medication that combines buprenorphine and naloxone. It's used to treat opioid addiction. (Heroin and narcotic painkillers are common opioid drugs.) Buprenorphine belongs to a class of drugs called opioid partial agonists, which help relieve symptoms of opiate withdrawal.
Suboxone strips next to the Suboxone box. If you're reading this then you're probably already considering some form of opioid maintenance therapy

chronic pain lasts longer than acute pain and is generally somewhat resistant to medical treatment . It's usually associated with a long-term illness, such as osteoarthritis . In some cases, such as with fibromyalgia, it's one of the defining characteristic of the disease. Chronic pain can be the result of damaged tissue, but very often is attributable to nerve damage.
