Michael D. Glinski from #Jacksonville #Florida in #Amsterdam. ==> “To further my study of city-building, I toured the regenerating neighborhoods of Amsterdam’s north side with an urban planner I met at a recent TEDx here. I challenged myself to confine my camera work to only my smartphone. This is the result. Many thanks to those who helped with arrangements.” #CityManagement

#DavidHopcroft #ExploringMontenegro ==> “Not quite as adventurous today. A trip down to Ulcinj near the Albanian border. Pleasant seaside town and parts of the coast here are less developed and show a lovely coastline with pines sloping down to rocky outcrops and small sandy bays. Slight hiccup when lights on car failed, they are needed because plenty of tunnels here ad some have no lighting. However got that sorted.”

Jacksonville went back to normal after Hurricane Irma. We observed cargo ships, fishing boats, and sport boats using St Johns River to connect the city to the sea.  Lessons after the storm. Recovering is a task of all our community and visitors.

One week after Hurricane Irma crossed Florida from the Keys to Jacksonville, Florida, we collected several lessons to be used in our Management courses.

Here are the points that we are covering in our courses:

  • Emergency Preparedness #GlobalManagement
  • Weather Data Analysis #GlobalSystems
  • City Leaders During Storms #GlobalLeadership

We continue these lessons after Hurricane Maria and Mexico earthquake. Be prepared for emergencies.
