A light approach to dog poo

How about this cute sign encouraging people to pick up after their dogs seen in Vienna?

Councillor on a bike

My colleague, Councillor Jackie Fristacky from the City of Yarra, is an outstanding advocate for cycling. Mike Rubbo has made a video about Jackie's contribution to cycling which also gives insights into her life of a councillor. Jackie reports graffiti, discusses possums and other issues with residents while she is on the go.
I recommend you start a few minutes in as the clip is quite long.

The City of Yarra's cycling strategy aims to more than double the rate of Yarra residents cycling to work from 6.4% to 15% by 20105. Yarra already has the highest number of people cycling to work in inner Melbourne.
