Soho
SoHo, sometimes written Soho,[2] is a neighborhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City, which in recent history came to the public's attention for being the location of many artists' lofts and art galleries, but is now better known for its variety of shops ranging from trendy upscale boutiques to national and international chain store outlets. The area's history is an archetypal example of inner-city regeneration and gentrification, encompassing socioeconomic, cultural, political, and architectural developments.[3] The name "SoHo" refers to the area being "South of Houston Street", and was also a reference to Soho, an area in London's West End.[4] It was coined by Chester Rapkin,[5] an urban planner and author of The South Houston Industrial Area study,[6] also known as the "Rapkin Report"

Asian Martial Arts
There are a large number of distinct styles and schools of martial arts. Sometimes, schools or styles are introduced by individual teachers or masters, or as a brand name by a specific gym. Martial arts can be grouped by type or focus, or alternatively by regional origin. This article focuses on the latter grouping. For hybrid martial arts, as they originated from the late 19th century and especially after 1950, it may be impossible to identify unique or predominant regional origins. It is not trivial to distinguish "traditional" from "modern" martial arts. Chronology isn't the decisive criterion, as, for example, "traditional taekwondo" was developed in the 1950s, while the "modern" hybrid martial art of Bartitsu

Slum Clearance
Slum
Slum
clearance, slum eviction or slum removal is an urban renewal strategy used to transform low income settlements with poor reputation into another type of development or housing. The clearance of the slum destroys low income homes as well as illegal squatting sites, displacing inhabitants into different housing areas with the intent of breaking up continuous zones of poverty. This has long been a strategy for redeveloping urban communities; for example slum clearance plans were required in the United Kingdom in the Housing Act 1930. Similarly the Housing Act of 1937
Housing Act of 1937
encouraged similar strategies in the United States.[1] Frequently, but not always these programs were paired with public housing or other assistance programs for the displaced communities. Critics argue that slum removal by force tends to ignore the social problems that cause slums

New Statesman
The New Statesman
New Statesman
is a British political and cultural magazine published in London. Founded as a weekly review of politics and literature on 12 April 1913, it was connected then with Sidney and Beatrice Webb
Beatrice Webb
and other leading members of the socialist Fabian Society. They had supported The New Age, a journal edited by A. R. Orage, but by 1912 that journal moved away editorially from supporting Fabian politics and women's suffrage. The magazine, which today is a print-digital hybrid, has, according to its present self-description, a liberal, sceptical political position.[2] The longest-serving editor was Kingsley Martin (1930–60). The current editor is Jason Cowley, who assumed the post at the end of September 2008. The magazine has notably recognized and published new writers and critics, as well as encouraged major careers
