Tipping points have a way of sneaking up on us. One reason they catch us by surprise is because they represent a confluence of inputs that until a certain moment appeared disconnected, but change the landscape in such a way that their individuality later seems silly - and their merged impact overwhelming. Such is the case with big data and its uses.

The 7th Annual Hub Culture Zeitgeist Ranking is about to appear, and in our evaluations we often run across a theme that merits a smaller preview list. This year's key word seems to be resilience, and it reflects a definite trend of revival happening in the world today.
With that in mind, we present five cities that are rising, phoenix-like, from the ashes, and are therefore terribly interesting places for your consideration.

Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and Cam'ron are out with a new video for their hit single, I Am Your Leader. It takes the Trinidadian queen into vibrant territory on the artistic front, referencing some 90s old skool styles in the Blade Runner technopop colors that are a Minaj trademark. While its just hip candy, it at least represents one thing: girl does it like she wants.

Summer in Europe is like a sweet dream - no matter how bad the problems in the city, almost everyone finds time to slip away, unfurl on a beach and sip local spirits under starry skies.
In times of economic merde it is easy to forget Europe's pleasures, so Hub Culture recruited our oft-traveling Jean Francois Lacourt (who knows all the yacht-spots) to create our first ever European Perfect Summer List - the places we treasure.

The sudden eruption of the Kony 2012 campaign, designed to #stopkony (the world's worst war criminal), demonstrates the sudden impact of resonance in a web connected world. Despite qualms about the organization behind it, Invisible Children, there's no question Joseph Kony must be stopped, and the project's founders applauded for their efforts.

It is neither a wise nor popular course of action to defend News Corp. and its senior leadership in the wake of the scandals rocking its UK newspaper division, but there does come a moment where a bit of perspective could do everyone some good, so here goes: James Murdoch is a good guy.
Yes, we said it, and here's why.

The 6th Annual Hub Culture Zeitgeist skids into place with a focus on the heavyweights and gradual power shifts. This is the year of determined resolve - and everyone seems, dare we say, pretty optimistic?
Signs are that the US and European economies are finally evened out from a death spiral, income inequality is being addressed in pop culture platitudes, emerging markets are ticking over, its an Olympic year, etc. etc.. (Just how do we create this ranking?). And its São Paulo for the win - again! While the main cities remain on the list in different positions, there is an evident balance of power shift this year, with more BRIC cities in the top positions than ever before.

Solace Women's Aid is a London-based organization dedicated to supporting victims of domestic and sexual violence. They provide safe refuges, counseling, support services, and many other services to help women and children regain their independence. Unfortunately, they have also been amongst the many victims of drastic budget cuts across the public sector. Therefore, we have organised a special night of live music to raise funds and awareness in support of their cause!
