Spaccanapoli is a narrow one-kilometer long street in the heart of the Naples
Historic Center, the oldest continuously inhabited community in Western Europe.
An Open-Air Museum and a 2500 Year Journey of Western Civilization
The Decumano Superiore and Spaccanapoli comprise the urban layout of Greek era Neapolis. In the 19th
century, the city’s aristocratic families’ palazzi and religious convents led
to renewed interest in the old quarter from Piazza San Domenico Maggiore to
Piazza del Gesù Nuovo where remains of the Roman baths where found under the
Cloister of Santa Chiara.
The Renaissance period led to changes in the original Gothic buildings as well
as a linkage with the city’s Spanish quarter with construction of via Toledo. Palazzo Carafa di Maddaloni is
a classic example of Neapolitan Baroque whereas Palazzo Coriglianoand
its namesake church maintained their gothic polygonal apse but were refurbished
in a gold and stucco baroque style.

area’s first inhabitants were American Indian people. The Ute, Cheyenne,
Arapaho and other tribes gathered at the base of Pikes Peak, near its abundant
springs. During the 18thCentury both French and Spanish flags flew
over the region. But with the Louisiana Purchase more Anglo-American explorers
and settlers began to venture west. In 1859, Colorado Springs history is marked
with the founding of Colorado City which became the first settlement in the
Pikes Peak region. It was the territorial capitol for a short period and served
as a supply camp for miners traveling to the mining camps west of Denver.
By 1871, the
Denver and Rio Grande Railroad facilitated visits to a Victorian
spa resort town at the base of Pikes Peak. The stunning scenic beauty
was not the only thing that attracted people to the area. The sunny conditions
and dry, mild climate of Colorado Springs made these communities popular for
people suffering from poor health, especially tuberculosis.

At Your Service to Help Reduce the Time and Cost of Your Next Transport Experience
Thelast mile or last kilometer is a term widely used in the telecommunication, energy and transportation industries to deliver services to retail customers; specifically, it refers to the portion of the network chain that physically reaches the end-user’s premises. The word mile is a metaphor because the last mile of a network to the user is conversely the first mile from the user’s premises to the outside world when the user is sending data or initiating a transport service.
The Speed Bottleneck in networks occurs in the last/first mile; bandwidth effectively limits the data that can be delivered to the customer because networks have relatively few high capacity trunk channels branching out to feed many final mile clients. The final mile links, being the most numerous and thus most expensive part of the system, as well as having to interface with a wide variety of user equipment, are the most difficult to upgrade to new technology. Phone trunk lines that carry calls between switching centers are made of optical-fiber but the last mile is a technology which has remained unchanged for over a century since the original laying of copper phone cables.
The term last mile has expanded outside the communications industries to include other distribution networks that deliver goods to customers, such as the pipes that deliver water and natural gas and the final legs of mail and package deliveries. The problem of sending any given amount of information across a channel can therefore be viewed in terms of sending Information-Carrying Energy ICE. For this reason, the concept of a pipe or conduit is relevant for examining existing systems.
conduits that carry small amounts of a resource a short distance to physically separated endpoints
Cost and Efficiency the high-capacity conduits in these systems tend to also have in common the ability to efficiently transfer a resource over a long distance. Only a small fraction of the resource being transferred is wasted or misdirected. The same cannot be said of lower-capacity conduits; this has to do with efficiency of scale. Conduits that are located closer to the end-user, do not have as many users supporting them; resources supporting these smaller conduits come from the local area. Resources for these conduits can be optimized to achieve the best solutions, however, lower operating efficiencies and greater installation expenses can cause these smaller conduits to be the most expensive and difficult part of a distribution system.
economies of scaleincreases of a conduit’s capacity are less expensive as the capacity increases
The economics of information transfer an effective last-mile conduit must:
Deliver signal power, must have adequate signal power capacity;
Experience low occurrence of conversion to unusable energy forms;
Support wide transmission bandwidth;
Deliver high signal-to-noise ratio, low unwanted-signal power;
Provide nomadic connectivity.
In addition, a good solution to the last-mile problem must provide each user high availability, reliability, low latency and high per-user capacity. A conduit which is shared among multiple end-users should provide a correspondingly higher capacity in order to properly support each individual user for information transfer in each direction.
Optical fiber offers high information capacity and is the medium of choice for scalability given the increasing bandwidth requirements of modern applications. Unlike copper-based and wireless last-mile mediums, it has built-in future capacity through upgrades of end-point optics and electronics without having to change the existing fiber infrastructure.
optical fiber is the future of local and regional commerce
a pricing strategy that regulates demand without increasing the supply
Congestion pricing entails surcharging users in excess demand situations for public
transport, electricity, data and communications and road pricing to reduce
traffic congestion. The policy objective is to leverage cost to make users sensitive
when consuming during peak demand and pay for additional congestion,
encouraging demand redistribution.
Implementation have reduced congestion in urban environments; however, critics point
out that the system is not equitable even as many economists believe in the
effectiveness of road pricing in some form. Four types are in use:
a cordon around downtown areas;
area wide congestion pricing;
city center toll ring, and
congestion pricing, where access to a location is
rationale at zero cost, demand exceeds supply,
causing shortages corrected with equilibrium prices instead of increasing
supply; this entails price increases when and where congestion occurs.
is one demand side efficiency strategy
A quantity supplied is less than the quantity demanded at what is
essentially a price of zero. If a service is provided free of charge, people
tend to demand more and waste it instead of paying the price that reflected its
cost. Congestion pricing charges help allocate resources to their most valuable
congestion pricing is found almost exclusively in
urban areas and city centers whereas cordon area pricing is a fee paid by users
to enter a restricted area. Its effectiveness has improved with technological
advances in toll collection.
Cities that have implemented congestion pricing schemes
show traffic volume reductions from 10% to 30% as well as reduced air pollution.
In some locations, net earnings are invested to promote mobility management,
reduce air pollution, initiate pedestrian and cycling strategies as well as
upgrade public transportation.

supply-chain management transport hubs and mobility networks
First and Last Miles are terms used in supply chain management and transport planning to
define the movements of passengers and cargo from a transit hub to
management includes managing the movement of raw
materials, the internal processing of materials into finished goods, and the
movement toward the end consumer. Businesses ownership of raw materials sources
and distribution channels are increasingly being outsourced to other firms that
can perform these activities more efficiently, hence an increase in customer
demand services and a reduced control of logistics operations. An increase in
supply-chain partners results in enhanced supply-chain management, inventory
visibility and speed of movement.
Transport planning defines policies, goals, investments and designs for future needs to
move people and goods to destinations; a collaborative process that
incorporates the input of government agencies, the public and businesses.
Planners apply a multi-modal approach to evaluate alternatives and impacts on
the transportation system to influence beneficial outcomes.
Transport hubs is where passengers and cargo are exchanged between carriers and modes of transport. Public hubs include train and metro stations, bus stops, airports and ferry docks. Freight hubs include rail yards, air cargo and truck terminals and ports. Delta Air Lines pioneered the passenger hub and spoke system in 1955 and FedEx adopted the model for overnight package delivery during the 1970s.
streets that function as transit hubs, also
known as transit malls, feature public transport, bike and walking lanes, taxi
and ride-hailing services; regular car traffic is reduced or banned entirely.s
hub and spoke transport is cheaper than through services
Last mile also describes the difficulty in getting people from railway
stations, bus depots, and ferry slips to their final-destination. Conversely,
difficulty in getting from the starting location to a transport network is
referred to as the first mile problem. Land-use patterns have moved more jobs
and people to lower-density suburbs not within walking distance to public
transit, hence promoting reliance on the private automobile.
Solutions to first and last mile problems have included feeder buses and, more
recently car-sharing, ride-hailing and bicycle sharing systems as well as
micro-mobility services such as dockless electric scooters and electric-assist
