The Case for Transit
BY DOUGLAS FUNKE
@ VOL 19
ON MAR 14, 2018
"It was a streetcar network that reached into all the nooks and crannies of Buffalo."
In The Case for Transit from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, President of Citizens for Regional Transit (CRT) in Buffalo, NY, Doug Funke, recalls the days of efficient streetcar transportation in Buffalo, New York and advocates for improving the current public transportation challenges in the Buffalo Niagara region. The 1950's and 1960's saw a decline in public transport and a car-focused lifestyle with pockets of transit isolation. Funke and the CRT advocate for a return to a more climate-friendly and sustainable approach to public transportation.

Reviving Urban Environments, the Mysteries of the Teutonic Knights, and Outside in Cancun
Presentations Payam Shalchian and Jamie Black, two alumni from the Institute Without Boundaries, talk (at PKN Toronto Vol. 13) about the significance of collective action in reviving urbanized environments. They use Lota, a project in Chile, as a case study, reflecting on the project's outcome in relation to various aspects of Toronto. Marek Czechowski is a traveler and researcher, and in his presentation (in Polish, from PKN Koszalin Vol. 7) he talks about the real history of the teutonic knights, who during the 13th century ruled the North of Poland. This is however a history that doesn't follow any school books or academic sources. This story reveals the very truth about the knights, who, according to Marek, were not able to build their famous brick castles themselves... Gaining spontaneous applause, Marek proves they had no necessary knowledge to do this, and that they had insufficient money, as well as insufficient building materials. Posters We have two new posters on our Tumblr blog today: a flyer for PKN Kyoto Vol. 7, and then one from Nantes (pictured above), for the city's upcoming PKN Vol. 3 (set for June 19).

Poster for PKN Knoxville Vol. 9
Beth Meadows is a talented local artist who is well known for her creative abstractions of found objects, architectural spaces, and historic structures. She volunteered her time to design the poster for Knoxville's 9th Pecha Kucha and for that we are grateful! She choose this painting for the poster for the architectural qualities and proportion of the space - perfect for the integration of PKN into Architecture Week! The couple [and their cats] are taking time from thier busy schedules to sit quietly and listen. Sometimes PKN can get a little rowdy but the reason we all attend is to listen to a passionate community member share thier craft with us. It is an inspiring evening of reflection and gratitde. Beth Meadows graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BFA in Studio Art in 2007. She has lived and worked in Knoxville since then and currently manages The Salvage Room for the non-profit Knox Heritage, receiving and selling historic building materials. She is also the Director, as well as an artist, of 17th Street Studios, a work space for thirteen artists near downtown Knoxville. To view more of her work visit her site http://withbearhands.com/
iPads and Innovations

He talked about owners of different cafes or restaurants that face with problems connected with POS terminals, because they are quite expensive and inconvenient.
