Caption: This summer, millions of eyes will be watching Rio de Janeiro, as the 2016 Summer Olympics descend on the Brazilian city.It s at the Jewish Museum of New York until September 18, and it represents recognition at last of the tremendous influence Marx had on modern landscape architecture.Decades later, you can see that influence in, for example, the abandoned rail viaduct in New York City that James Corner Field Operations turned into the vaunted High Line.It sounds ridiculous that in a place like Brazil, that s so blessed with incredible flora and nature, people were importing roses and European species for gardens, Nahson says.The Jewish Museum show, the first comprehensive survey of Burle Marx s work in a quarter century, includes photos of all those parks, as well as paintings, sculptures, textiles, jewelry, ceramics, and works of stained-glass.But the designs live on, as a backdrop for the wheels of speeding Olympian cyclists.

View photosMoreRepublican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump poses for a photo after an interview with Reuters in his office in Trump Tower, in the Manhattan borough of New York City, U.S., May 17, 2016.In a Reuters interview, the New York billionaire said technology start-ups that had never earned a profit were able to sell shares at very high prices, likening the situation to the overheated stock market in 2007."I'm talking about companies that have never made any money, that have a bad concept and that are valued at billions of dollars, so here we go again," Trump said.Some startup founders rejected Trump's generalization that all companies are burning cash and overvalued; certainly many of them are, and in the last several months a correction has started to rectify years of exuberant investments."So far he has been saying dumb things but they seem to be getting dumber and dumber," Vivek Wadhwa, an entrepreneur and Stanford University fellow, told Reuters."There is nothing in his Trump's track record to show that he has been out here and met with any technology leaders and knows this industry and knows about innovation," said Aaron Ginn, co-founder of the Lincoln Initiative, a community that promotes libertarian and technology-friendly values.

This week I m excited to feature Carol Krol, editor-in-chief of DemandGen Report.Location: I work from my home office in New York City, and twice a week I commute to the office in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ.It s lovely when the sun streams through in the morning, but I usually have to shut the windows and go on mute on conference calls because of occasional sirens.I have a tiny knight on horseback figurine on my desk that I got at The Cloisters years ago.I love music, but I m all about the lyrics, so I find listening to most music while working is a distraction.A former boss and mentor pointed it out, gently, years ago and I ve been practicing listening and not interrupting ever since.
This new generation of skyscrapers range from 50 to 100 stories, are almost uniformly filled with luxury housing—and some are wedged into the city with astoundingly tiny 45-feet-wide footprints.A new exhibition at the Skyscraper Museum in New York looks at how the slender movement came to be: from the air rights laws that made them possible, to the design innovations that allow architects to build such spindle-thin towers.In the last few years, newer buildings have been able to achieve even more jaw-dropping ratios.The Nordstrom Tower going up on 57th Street has a ratio of 1:23!From left to right, the grey buildings are: Shanghai World Financial Center, CTF Finance Centre, One WTC, Lotte World Tower, Mecca Royal Clock Tower, Shanghai Tower, Burj KhalifaAlthough some of these towers are going to be among the tallest in the US—depending on who you ask, the Nordstrom Tower will just barely top 1 WTC for Western Hemisphere bragging rights—they re still in the shadows of the world s tallest structures.One can only imagine that as advances in engineering and elevator tech progress, we ll soon be seeing buildings as tall as the Burj that are only a handful of yards wide.
Google has announced it is working with IMAX to create a 360-degree camera capable of creating high-quality cinema-grade video.Speaking in a VR-based address on day 2 at Google I/O, the head of VR Clay Bavor said Google s work within its Jump platform had attracted the attention of Hollywood.Currently, Jump and the $15,000 Odyssey rig pictured is geared towards creating footage for YouTube to be viewed on Google Cardboard headsets.Related: 10 Things Google didn't announce at Google I/OToday's announcement via VentureBeat comes amid a warning from Steven Spielberg, that VR technology could be dangerous for film-making.I just hope it doesn t forget the story when it starts enveloping us in a world that we can see all around us and make our own choices to look at.Elsewhere, Google also revealed that Jump rigs will be available to YouTube creators through its Spaces studios in LA and New York City.
It makes it easy to buy movie tickets while on the go, to find that perfect restaurant for your family to grab a quick bite before the movie starts, and then help you navigate to the theater, Google announced online.For instance, in a demo, the app offers a texter sample greetings and comes up with lines like aww so cute to use in response to a picture of a child.Browsers will be a thing of the past, said Geraldine McBride – founder of myWave, a virtual assistant company – at the Intelligent Assistants conference in New York City in October.This vision has inspired a spate of start-ups, such as X.ai s Amy, which sets up meetings over email, and Ozlo, which helps you find somewhere to eat.Earlier this month, at hackathon event Disrupt NYC, the team behind Apple s helper Siri demonstrated Viv.Viv is designed to take on the type of wordy inquiries that flummox Siri, like Was it raining in Seattle three Thursdays ago?
Maven started out overseeing car-sharing services in New York City and Ann Arbor, Michigan, and will now add operations in Boston, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.The Maven City car-sharing program is available to residents of the Windy City, starting at $8.00 an hour including insurance and fuel.There are around 30 vehicles at 15 sites throughout the city, including Buick, Cadillac, and Chevrolet models.GM s first car-sharing experiment involved a luxury apartment building in New York City; the company believes they make a particularly good market for car-sharing services.Speaking of D.C., GM will offer Maven car sharing to residents of the Hepburn luxury apartment complex, which opens on the grounds of the Washington Hilton next month.Finally, GM plans to launch both Maven City and Maven in Boston this summer.
International Business Machines Corp. this week quietly laid off employees, continuing a wave of job cuts the company announced in April.The job cuts come after four straight years of declining revenues as the rise of cloud computing threatens its software and services business.IBM has said it would restructure its workforce to retool for cloud services and data analysis, and could hire an equal number of new employees by the end of the year.IBM s last round of layoffs, which affected less than 5,000 employees, came in March.This week s cuts affected workers in the Research Triangle of North Carolina; New York City; Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; and Boulder, Colo.Some positions are being moved to places like India and Costa Rica, according to workers affected by this week s cuts.
Real estate woes are all too common, especially in sought-after cities like New York.Enter TripleMint, a real estate startup hoping to ease the pain of renting and buying in New York City.TripleMint brings the power of 21st-century search and a customer experience focus to the convoluted universe of old-school agencies, listings, and fees.It's a sleek end-to-end property solution, drawing in and predicting the full database of available properties.TripleMint then connects potential clients with one of their 30 agents, who are incentivized not by sales — which is the traditional agency approach — but instead by customer experience and satisfaction feedback."TripleMint's platform really powers the whole transaction for buyer, seller, and renter by offering value directly to the consumer," CEO and co-founder David Walker told Business Insider.We recently sat down with Walker and TripleMint's head of sales, Tyler Whitman, to get the inside scoop on how to make the right choices around buying and renting in this competitive market.

But as modern as the buses are, with USB charging ports and free Wi-Fi, most will still initially lack technology to address perhaps the worst safety issue with the big vehicles, hitting pedestrians while making turns."Amenities like Wi-Fi are welcome, and they certainly add to the experience of riding the bus, but the first priority should be on improvements to buses that save lives," said Paul Steely White, executive director of the Transportation Alternatives advocacy group.Through this summer, 75 new buses will be added, with a total of 2,042 put on the streets over the next five years, replacing nearly 40 percent of MTA's fleet."These tests will take this commercially-available technology and hopefully show that we can put it to practical use on a larger scale under New York City operating conditions."That spurred Mayor Bill de Blasio to make reducing such deaths a major goal of his administration, and they did indeed decline to 136 in 2015, of which seven pedestrian fatalities and one bicycle fatality involved MTA buses.At least 11 bus drivers have been arrested for Right of Way violations since the law took effect in August 2014, according to the New York Police Department.
IBM has started another round of job cuts as part of the layoffs Big Blue announced last month.The Wall Street Journal reported that the cuts impacted offices in North Carolina, New York City, Poughkeepsie, New York, and Boulder, Colorado.One IBM employee was quoted by the news agency as saying, "Their initiatives aren't going as fast as they'd like them to and it's affecting their revenue more than they thought."The latest layoffs follow a round of job cuts in March that impacted about 5,000 workers.IBM recently said it would shut down its Somers, New York campus and move those jobs to a facility in North Castle, New York.The company expects to hire an equal number of new employees by the end of the year.
