Open thread for night owls: Efforts by cities & states can't meet U.S. Paris climate commitments

Alex Lenferna at Common Dreams writes—No, the US Is Not Upholding Its Paris Climate Agreement Commitments: At the end of the Global Climate Action Summit, California Governor Jerry Brown and Michael Bloomberg pronounced that despite Trump’s intransigence the U.S. is still “upholding its commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement”. They were celebrating the fact that sub-national commitments put “the country within striking distance of the 26% reduction in greenhouse gases, by 2025, that the United States promised to hit in Paris”. Unfortunately, though, despite some encouraging climate action at the sub-national level, the U.S. is not “upholding its commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement”, as it is failing to address the issue of international climate finance and is far from meetings its fair share of emissions reductions. Together these failures mean that the United States cannot really be said to be upholding the agreement, but sub-national actors like DC can change that. Firstly, the Paris agreement was not just about countries reducing their domestic emissions. Centrally, it was also about rich, developed, climate polluting countries providing funding to help developing countries adapt to and mitigate climate change. For the United States, as the richest country on earth and the largest historical climate polluter, this political and moral responsibility is particularly pronounced. When Trump pulled out of the Paris climate agreement, the administration also abandoned the US’s pledge to deliver an additional $2 billion to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) — a key funding channel serving the Paris Climate Agreement which helps developing countries adapt to climate change and pursue low-carbon and climate resilient development. Despite America having previously promised action on this front, it has been all but ignored by the U.S. sub-national climate movement. To make matters worse, even the U.S. pledge under the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce its emissions 26-28% by 2025 is far from its fair share of emissions reductions. [...] TOP COMMENTS • HIGH IMPACT STORIES QUOTATION «Part of what my discomfort was, in the beginning, is that I wanted something that didn't exist. I wanted something that was so singular, a label that was so singular for me. I was so special—I was so different from everybody else I was meeting. And I wanted a different label. And I had to say, 'Charles snap out of that. What are you talking about?' All identity labels are umbrella terms to some degree, but this term bisexual is not only serviceable but it is sufficient. And yes, it brings together a bunch of people who are maybe shades different from one another. And maybe that’s the beauty of labels: that they force you to be with other people and see the difference.»                ~~Charles M.

Election Roundup: Early Voting, Best Democratic Campaign Ads, (MD-Gov) Ben Jealous Campaign

The following stories are examples of this week's Election Roundup of 48 down ticket stories covering Sunday 10/14 through Saturday 10/20. (Voting) Early Voting Is Happening, And It's Big! UPDATE 3 Hr. Wait Today In Cobb County Georgia by pollwatcher Michael McDonald at the University of Florida does a wonderful job of collecting early voting stats and posting them over at ElectProject.  He’s got some tweets about the very early voting and it’s on a pace to be BIGGER than the 2016 presidential year!  Yes, it’s early but it’s a great start.  I’m not sure there’s ever been a midterm election with a bigger turnout than a presidential year. xThe levels of engagement are just bonkers in some some states. If this keeps up, we'll have turnout higher than the 2016 presidential election. That can't happen, can it? You'd think this has to level off at some point, but there are no signs yet— Michael McDonald (@ElectProject) October 17, 2018 (Media) The Best of Democratic Campaign Ads by AKALib Here is a sample of some of the best campaign ads run by Democratic candidates around the country. As is usually the case, Democratic campaign ads tend to be positive, uplifting, creative and make liberal use of humor, while Republican campaign ads tend to be dark, deceitful, and focus on fear and identity politics (so we won’t present any of them). (16 great ads) (MD-Gov) The governor's mansion is theirs for the taking, if Maryland's Democrats want it by dwats Ben Jealous, Maryland’s Democratic nominee for governor, is running an unconventional campaign in several ways. One of the most notable of these is that he is running as an underdog, which no Democrat has done in a statewide race in 38 years. Since Charles Mathias, a moderate Republican, in an era when those actually existed, won reelection to his US Senate seat in 1980, Democrats have won all but two statewide races since (plus Mondale ‘84 and Dukakis ‘88 also lost here).

Audemars Piguet Creates Royal Oak Frosted Gold Carolina Bucci Timepiece

Audemars Piguet in collaboration with Carolina Bucci has created a Royal Oak Frosted Gold timepiece that is covered with a fine layer of dust with a diamond finish.Guaranteed to capture the eye, the Royal Oak Frosted Gold watch, which is the latest offering from Audemars Piguet, has several unique features. The standout element of the watch however is its finish that is described as “diamond dust” by the watchmaker. With the luxury Swiss-based watchmaker once again renewing its partnership with Carolina Bucci for the creation of the 300 piece limited edition timepiece, not surprisingly it has the look and feel of jewelry. Bucci was also involved in the creation of the Royal Oak Frosted Gold timepieces which were launched in 2016 and came in white and pink hued gold.Yellow gold is the star of the timepiece and it has a unique “hammered” texture that Bucci prefers and is famously nicknamed as the “Florentine.” The case and the bracelet are created from the unique yellow gold and importantly the dial has a highly polished silver hued “mirror” style which is designed to reflect the world around women. With the dial changed the timepiece is a big deviation from the “‘Tapisserie” pattern which was a prominent feature that was used on previous dials.The 37mm case contains a self winding movement and it composed of 280 parts providing a power of reserve of up to 60 hours. With a 50 meters water resistance rating, the timepiece is ideal for everyday wear and combines well with jewelry.Click on the slideshow to check the timepiece.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin

Wanda Studios Entrance Gateway by Steven Chilton Architects

Wanda Studios, designed by London-based Steven Chilton Architects, recently opened its gates for business. Located in the coastal city of Qingdao, in northeast China, Wanda Studios is part of Wanda’s new Movie Metropolis, the first filmmaking destination in China that meets international standards and aspires to become the new hub of global production. Currently the world’s largest film and television industry investment project, the Movie Metropolis covers an area of 3.76 million square meters, with a total construction area of 5.4 million square meters.“Marking the entrance into the studio with a recognizable gateway structure has become a tradition in the movie business. Familiar examples include the twin gates into Paramount Studios, the five arches into Universal Studios and the floating bridge into the Walt Disney Studio in Burbank, California,” writes Steven Chilton Architects. “The simple brief for the gateway into Wanda’s new studio called for a modern, elegant gateway that looked to the future of filmmaking whilst recognizing the past.”The design incorporates a strip of perforated celluloid film as a means to recognize the past. Each frame of the strip is defined by a structural bay, while the perforations are used to house the light fittings.“After weeks of research and optioneering, we settled on a concept that created a shallow, elegant arch whose form is defined by two long and slender, gently twisting surfaces. Each surface starts either side of the entrance on the ground in a vertical orientation. As they get closer to the entrance, the surfaces fan upwards and almost seem to take off as they rise above the road and pathways before folding back down on the other side,” adds the firm.The London-based firm is also designing Wuxi Taihu Show Theater in China’s Jiangsu Province. Inspired by the Sea of Bamboo Park in Yixing, the largest bamboo forest in China, the theater’s slender white columns along the building’s perimeter represent an abstract impression of a bamboo forest.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the Wanda Studios Entrance Gateway.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/                                                              Founder: Louise Blouin

Herzog & de Meuron’s Revised Design for Museum of the 20th Century in Berlin

Architects Herzog & de Meuron recently unveiled the revised design for the Museum of the 20th Century in Berlin. The design proposal aims to open the museum space even further to its surroundings and follow the idea of ​​networking even more intensively. The three areas of focus include the house shape, the intersecting boulevards, and the translucent facade made of brick. Herzog & de Meuron proposes new entrances and visual references to connect the museum building even more strongly to the surrounding urban space.“The many responses to the competition design in the media, professional circles, and the public have demonstrated the importance of this project and have spurred us on to further develop the project,” emphasizes Jacques Herzog. “Our urban concept for the Kulturforum is a concept of density, not emptiness. It organizes an interaction of precisely related buildings. And it also initiates the interplay of cultural institutions established in it. "The architects have developed the design in collaboration with the Nationalgalerie. In the revised floor plans for the four storeys, three of these four floors will be opened to the public. The four floors will house exhibition rooms, rooms for art education and work, areas for the visitor service, a multifunctional media room, as well as the gastronomy. Depot, restoration, office and technical rooms will be housed in the internal areas of the museum.The President of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, Hermann Parzinger, said: “The architects have considerably developed the original design. Not only the new quality of the exterior design, but also the development of the interior make the building a true hub between the Philharmonic, State Institute of Music Research, St. Matthew Church and New National Gallery on the one hand, and State Library, Ibero-American Institute and Gemaldegalerie. That was always important to us. For the SPK and its State Museums, a magnificent building will be built here, containing the unique collection of the National Gallery from the East and West to the art of the 20th century. Together with the collections of Erich Marx, Ulla and Heiner Pietzsch, and will also include holdings of the Kunstbibliothek and the Kupferstichkabinett. Today, we have come a great deal closer to our goal of creating a new, outstanding place for the art of the 20th century.”The design is expected to be completed in the summer of 2019, and the groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for the end of 2019. The design plans for the museum will be on display in a small exhibition in the foyer of the Kulturforum from November 2018.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the revised design.http://www.blouinartinfo.com/                                                              Founder: Louise Blouin
