comment A connectivity-preserving projection of a connected set on an interval
@Justpassingby I mixed things up. I need any function from $C$ onto the unit interval, that maps zero-area subsets of $C$ to zero-length subses of $I$ and positive-area subsets of $C$ to positive-length subsets of $I$. I edited the question to clarify this issue.

comment Partitioning a convex object without cutting existing convex subsets
N.B. I now found out that I also had a typo in the question, which may have caused some confusion. The second illustration shows correctly that the union of the $E_i$-s should be equal to $C$. But, I have written incorrectly that the union should only be contained in $C$ (this typo makes the question trivial since it is possible to take $E_i=D_i$).

@dxiv I followed your hint and found an "almost" good solution, but it is incorrect. See my edit. Do you have another hint?

Projections do not have to be linear.

comment Probability that a random walker crosses a moving point
OK. So asymptotically, the probability is $O(\sqrt{\log{t_0}}/t_0)$
