new role Carolina Panthers Hoodie
ROME Malik Hooker Colts Jersey , Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- A noted Italian architect has suggested trees could be used to protect citizens in public spaces from possible terror attacks such as those occurred in European cities in latest months.
Trees and plants may in fact provide a functioning alternative to concrete in order to create barriers against vehicle attacks, according to Stefano Boeri.
"Instead of distorting the most vital and open spaces in our cities, filling them with concrete barriers and modular plastic security devices, we should oppose the death instinct of such brutes with the calm presence of plants, and especially oaks," he wrote on Facebook on Sunday.
A Milan-born architect and Urban Planning professor at the Politecnico in Milan Authentic Pierre Desir Jersey , Boeri is renowned in Italy and abroad for his commitment to environmental regeneration within urban areas.
He recently launched a sustainable residential building project called "Vertical Forest", the first of which -- a twin-block building in Milan -- now hosts over 1,000 plants and trees on its terraces.
After last week's twin terror attacks in Spain, which killed 15 people, Boeri wrote on his account that "even an oak can stop terror".
Thirteen people were killed and over 100 others injured on Thursday afternoon in the popular Las Ramblas area of Barcelona, when a white van zigzagged at high speed down the busy avenue thronged with tourists Authentic Nate Hairston Jersey , knocking down pedestrians.
"Terrorists want us to lock ourselves at home, in the hope of forcing us to give up enjoining our collective and public spaces," the architect wrote in his post. "Besides the essential tools of prevention and control, we should respond to their desperate madness with a careful use of natural beauty and of its symbolic value."
He appealed on mayors and prefects across Italy and Europe to call "architects, creative, designers Authentic Jeremiah George Jersey , technicians, students and artists" to design big pots, each capable of hosting a plant.
Such pots should be cylindrical, at least one meter high and three meters in diameter, and deep enough to host roots and trunk of a tree. They should be positioned at the entrance to squares and key public spaces "to protect the passage of pedestrians, and minimize the risk of mass murders".
"Unlike a New Jersey Authentic Rashaan Melvin Jersey , a tree not only protects us, but it makes us shade, absorbs the urban air poison, hosts insects and birds: in a word, it welcomes and protect that life that terrorists want to annihilate," Boeri explained.
The authorities in Rome Authentic Antonio Morrison Jersey , Milan, and other Italian major cities have announced concrete barriers would be added to those already in place at the entrance to squares and sensitive public sites to avoid vehicles entering and ramming people.
Since July 2016, terrorist vehicle attacks have occurred in Nice, Berlin, Stockholm, London (three times) Authentic Matthias Farley Jersey , Levallois-Perret, and Paris.

A social media platform run by Internet giant Tencent has apologized and removed emojis based on World War II sex slaves Authentic Jeremy Vujnovich Jersey , amid public outrage over the creations that were deemed disrespectful to war victims.
The emojis, circulated on Qzone, used stills from a popular documentary film Twenty Two, which featured 22 then surviving Chinese comfort women who were forced into prostitution by the Japanese army during the Second World War. The film premiered on August 14.
One emoji showed one of the women wiping tears with a caption that read "speechless and choking with sobs." Another emoji was about a sex slave resting her head on her hand with a sad expression, with the accompanying caption "I was really wronged."
Those emojis were no longer available on Qzone as of Tuesday although screenshots could still be found online.
Chinese netizens were outraged after the emojis went viral, with one saying "you cannot use something very serious to make emojis which are used for teasing people Authentic Deyshawn Bond Jersey , and it's also immoral and disrespectful to those poor war victims."
Under the public spotlight, Qzone issued an apology on its Weibo account on Monday afternoon, saying that they had removed those emojis, which were provided by a third party.
"The incident has exposed flaws in our content supervision and reviewing system. We will conduct self-investigation and improve the related systems," said the statement.
The third party mentioned by Qzone has not responded to the incident as of press time.
