The figures coming out of the euro zone still make dismal reading, however. Several economies are expected to contract this year, notably Spain and Italy which are forecast to shrink by 1.6% and 1.1% respectively. GDP in the euro area as a whole is expected to decline by 0.2% in 2013, a second consecutive year of contraction, before returning to tepid growth of 0.8% next year. These figures look at odds with the buoyancy in many European stockmarkets this year, which are racing ahead due in part to the strong performance of American markets. Across the board improvement in growth is expected by our forecasters in 2014 but this will be modest at best, with America expected to grow by 2.6% compared with more moderate growth of 2.0% this year.
Chris Cobb, an artist based in San Francisco, has created an amazing installation in bookshop called Adobe Books- he catalogued every single one of the 20,000 books by color. The project is titled There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World. They were arranged by hand over a 10 hour period, and he enlisted the help of 16 volunteers. Such beautiful results, they transformed the bookshop overnight.

Hi! I want to submit this video after I saw the cane weavers image. It is from the movie Samsara, and it is quite powerful too.
Quite literally architecture/design of doom.
Samsara est un mot tibétain qui signifie la roue de la vie, un concept à la fois intime et vaste, qui définit l’âme de chacun.
Lire les commentaires! La peine de lire et de regarder le film.
Worth watch the film and read the comments :)

The Cultural Map of the World
This intriguing, although somewhat subjective graphic is the “The Inglehart-Welzel Cultural Map of the World”, which is designed and based on research by the World Values Survey.
The WVS is a global research project, carried out by a network of research scientists, whose mission it is to: “Explore people’s values and beliefs, their changes over time and their social and political effects.”
Based in Sweden, with archives in Spain, and a predominantly European team, the organization generates findings valuable to policy makers in building civil society and democratic institutions.
Their work is also used by governments and international organizations and institutions, such as the World Bank and the United Nations.
Do you agree with this map? What would you change about it, based on your experiences from your nation, or from visiting other nations?
