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.

Friday is National Beach Day

-- National Beach Day website

Many cities have urban beaches, especially those on the coasts, like Santa Monica, New York's Coney Island, Miami Beach, etc.

Other cities on lakes, like Cleveland and Chicago, often have beaches.

Sometimes cities on rivers do too.

I think cities like Washington, that have the opportunity to create an urban beach, like DC has on the Anacostia River side of the RFK Campus, ought to do so, as a way to add urban verve to the city and to increase the opportunity that people have "to touch the water."

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.
