BBC News - Underground overground: Take a journey through languages spoken above London's Victoria Line
Hurtling deep underground in a Tube train, it can be hard to picture the streets overhead, and harder still to learn much about their eight million inhabitants. But London is one of the most linguistically interesting cities in the world, with more than 100 languages in use across the city.
One way to get a taste for this rich diversity of languages would be to jump on London Underground's Victoria Line and surface at various stations along the way. The line runs north to south for 13 miles (21km), passing through rich and poor parts of town and beneath migrant communities new and old.

Drupal 7 Template (Theme Hook) Suggestions |
file you'd use for your content type - it would be comment-wrapper--node-[type].tpl.php where [type] is the name of your content type. Examples: if your content type is called question, then the file would be comment-wrapper--node-question.tpl.php. If your content type is called Resource Article (note the space!) then the file would be: comment-wrapper--node-resource_article.tpl.php - note the space is replaced with an underscore _ Works for me, based on official documentation

BBC News - The dark side of silence
"what makes it bearable for them is that their soundscape is something generated by - and so something owned by - everyone." "these days noise is more unequally distributed. And that's where the trouble starts." "The lesson from history, it seems, is this - when it comes to noise, be careful what you wish for."

BBC News - Young more lonely than the old, UK survey suggests
"the decline of community and a growing focus on work."... "young people we tell us that talking to hundreds of people on social networks is not like having a real relationship and when they are using these sites they are often alone in their bedrooms." ..."Economic changes that disrupt people's work-life balance & family life, & send people 100s of miles for work, can get worse during recession. Openness about being lonely, & vulnerable friends & neighbours, is an important first step." "... too much time communicating with friends & families online when should see them in person." ... "Manhattan in NYC has 50% lone households, more than elsewhere in the US, yet its 'urban village' model sustains social networks - people habitually use alternative meeting places, incl. cafes & public spaces,." ""According to evolutionary psychology, cities could in fact be our perfect environment because of the demands they make on our complex social brains, but only if they are well designed."
