“It’s like drinking satan’s urine. That’s a nice way of putting it. If you have three and you don’t eat it’s game over. Recycling contamination (when non recyclable materials are placed in bins) is a real problem for recycling in Madison up from 5% a decade ago to over 10% today and is mostly due to ‘wishcycling’. Wishcycling is when we’re unsure about whether an item is recyclable or not and so we place it in the green bin just in case. The reason this is such a big issue is that these non recyclable items actually cause many other recyclable items to be diverted to the landfill along the way.

I will argue that generalised hybridity and alterity are but accentuations of a human condition hence my reference to the biological and philosophical anthropology of Helmuth Plessner which provides the bridge from Simmel’s concept of necessarily incomplete socialisation to his notion of the stranger (to whose strangeness, Fremdheit, the concept of alterity is much akin see Sennett 2002).

A time when the drive for nationalist homogenisation in the Turkish Republic was at its most enthusiastic and in a place (Germany) where it would become far, far more extreme.
A fish taco lunch at Buzzards Bar and Grill, at the edge of this quasi remote seaside, made the morning complete. The next day, I returned with my wife and another conference couple. While they appeared a little more concerned about the off roading portion of our outing, they were totally enthused with our Buzzards lunch of grilled dorado tacos, coconut shrimp and Pacifico beer..
E commerce and the internet sector more broadly have been shining stars for Chinese industry. Companies including Alibaba, social networking and online entertainment firm Tencent Holdings Ltd and search leader Baidu Inc account for hundreds of billions of dollars in stock market capitalisation. Their success comes as the world second largest economy grows at its slowest pace in three decades and Beijing looks to catalyse a shift away from a dependence on manufacturing and towards higher value services.
