Well worth a visit. World Press Photo Exhibition 2017:

“The World Press Photo Exhibition represents the year’s best visual journalism and is seen by 4 million people in 100 cities across the globe. Lightscape is bringing the Exhibition to Washington DC, home of the people and institutions that drive thinking and decision-making on the issues behind the photographs. We are working with leading universities, think-tanks, embassies, international-, media- and civil society organizations to tell the stories behind the photos.

The images cover a broad range of topics and explore refugees/migration, conflicts in the Middle-East, climate change, race and policing, gender identity, and the human impact of the Zika virus, but also the US Rio Olympic team, National Geographic images of pandas, Usain Bolt’s golden smile, Chinese gymnasts and a Spanish cultural festival. This is photojournalism at its best and most thought-provoking.

The venue is the Dupont Underground, the abandoned trolley station beneath Dupont Circle. This massive space will house 22 projectors casting 13′ images of the year’s most important stories, a wall of large prints of WPP prize-winning photographs and a retrospective of 60 years of Photos of the Year. There will be side-exhibitions from NPR, the International Women’s Media Foundation and 2x WPP, Pulitzer and Anja Niedringhaus awardee Stephanie Sinclair.

The goal is simple: to use photojournalism to humanize complex issues, to bring people together to discuss and to learn, to support informed debate about the issues facing our communities, countries and the world around us.”

Join local DC startup cove for the Launch Party of their newest neighborhood workspace in Dupont Circle on Wednesday, November 15 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at 1666 Connecticut Ave NW. There will be food from Luke’s Lobster and Popped. Republic, music and giveaways from partners at Getaround and Via. RSVP at cove.is/dupont.

Cove Dupont is the DC-based startup’s most spacious location that opened this month, just north of the Circle. It’s the latest addition to cove’s network of neighborhood workspaces, geared for productivity and built for people who need a place to get things done outside the house, and away from the crowded coffee shop or sea of office cubes.

Cove has been building workspaces across DC and Boston for the last few years. Having already tested the waters out in Dupont Circle in September 2013, cove has finally returned to the Circle with 5,000 sq. ft. and floor-to-ceiling windows that stretch across its storefront on Connecticut Ave.

The beautifully designed workspace features plenty of seating in both quiet and social areas, high speed fiber internet, private call spaces and meeting rooms, a large event space, speciality coffee, beverages, snacks and tons of natural light. Basically where you want to be, and where you want to work.

RSVP for the Launch Party at cove.is/dupont, and sign up for your free trial visit at cove Dupont today at cove.is/locations/dc/dupont.

still haunting my dreams

From the Mayor’s Office:

“Today, Mayor Bowser led a community “rat walk” in the Dupont Circle neighborhood to discuss concerns around rat abatement and highlight the District’s rodent control efforts, including The Lab @ DC’s Rodent Abatement Predictive Analysis project. Washington, DC’s rodent population is believed to have risen in recent years as a result of warmer winters. Last year, the number of 311 requests for rodent abatement increased by 65 percent from 2,300 in 2015 to more than 3,500 in 2016. The District takes a comprehensive approach to rodent control that includes community outreach, surveys, abatement, enforcement, and cooperation between multiple DC agencies.

“Rats are an issue I take very seriously and my team is being innovative, proactive, and strategic in our approach,” said Mayor Bowser. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I’m a student at UDC. Our Adobe Programs have been down for almost a month and the university forgot and refused to pay the license for our programs. So basically we can’t learn anything. We have been fighting the bureaucratic system here at the University and their inability to take our program seriously. On behalf of my fellow students we would greatly appreciate it if you could post a story to shed some light on this situation.

Currently, most of the professors have said they were told it was a licensing issue and that it was likely unpaid but some have honestly no idea why its not working.

I talked to a rep at the Dean’s office and they told me they would quote “rather speak to professors and not students about this situation.” Which I don’t quite understand.”
