Planning For Drought-Resilient Communities: Evaluating The Fastest Growing Counties’ Local Comprehensive Plans, Xinyu Fu 2013 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Planning For Drought-Resilient Communities: Evaluating The Fastest Growing Counties’ Local Comprehensive Plans, Xinyu Fu

Community and Regional Planning Program: Student Projects and Theses

Recent drought events across the United States illustrate the country’s changing and continuing vulnerability to drought. Drought impacts are often associated with unsustainable land use and poor water management practices, but research has been conducted on how well localities prepare for drought in building long-term resilience through land use planning and what jurisdictional factors correlate with their quality in drought planning. Targeting the fastest growing counties, due to their high possibility in increasing drought risk by making unwise land use decisions, this paper analyzes 61 selected county comprehensive plans from the research sample against a conceptualized drought-ready protocol, and ...


The Lived Experiences Of Acute-~Care Bedside Registered Nurses Caring For Patients And Their Families With Limited English Proficiency, Jami-Sue Coleman 2013 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The Lived Experiences Of Acute-~Care Bedside Registered Nurses Caring For Patients And Their Families With Limited English Proficiency, Jami-Sue Coleman

UNLV Theses/Dissertations/Professional Papers/Capstones

Approximately 8.6% of the total U.S. population is considered limited English proficient (LEP), a term that has been used by official US federal policy and will be used throughout this study. In a landmark report, the Institute of Medicine found that minorities received lower-quality health care than Caucasians even when insurance status, income, and other factors were equivalent. These differences were tied to issues such as bias, stereotypes and communication barriers between patients and their caregivers. In the hospital setting, registered nurses provide the most direct contact with patients and their families. Effective communication between patients and health ...

How Kaizen Group Leader Selection Affects Group Participation, M. Joleen Byerline 2013 Western Kentucky University

How Kaizen Group Leader Selection Affects Group Participation, M. Joleen Byerline

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Organizational communication research indicates group member participation increases as the legitimate power differences among group members decreases. Lean principles and practices indicate Kaizen Event members will contribute regardless of legitimate power levels, due to member training, education, and the Lean team-oriented culture. Further study is needed to determine if Lean culture and training maximize group member contribution, or if legitimate power levels in Lean environments manipulate participation. The focus of this case study is a central Kentucky Lean manufacturing organization that practiced Lean principles for at least three years and completed a Kaizen Event within twelve months previous to the ...


Interactions Between The Urban Environment And “The Homelessness”: Observations And Responses, Jeffrey Charles Stahl 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Interactions Between The Urban Environment And “The Homelessness”: Observations And Responses, Jeffrey Charles Stahl

Masters Theses

Homelessness and people living on the streets is a phenomenon that is facing every major urban center in the United States. These people are a commonality in the urban landscape and are often seen a problem to be fi xed. Due to the interactions between the urban environment and persons experiencing homelessness, there needs to be a paradigm shift in how policy is written and how we design an intervention for these forgotten people. The goal of this thesis is to gain a clearer understanding to what it is like to survive on the streets: how dose someone fi nd ...

Thermal Envelope Substitution: Energy And Cost Implications Of Using Structural Insulated Panels In The Manufactured Housing Industry, Brendan Sean Dwyer 2013 California Polytechnic State University

Thermal Envelope Substitution: Energy And Cost Implications Of Using Structural Insulated Panels In The Manufactured Housing Industry, Brendan Sean Dwyer

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Currently 10% of all single family homes produced in the U.S. are manufactured homes with 75% of these households making less than $50,000 in annual income (Manufactured Housing Survey). Manufactured homes typically use twice as much primary energy per square foot than site built homes yet there is no agenda within the industry or its governing bodies to address this excess energy consumption. The research presented in this thesis compares the thermal envelope performance of the typical wood stud framing used in the manufactured home industry to the thermal envelope of structural insulated panels (SIPs). This comparison examines ...


The Vestiges Of The Sacred, Benjamin James Wathen 2013 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Vestiges Of The Sacred, Benjamin James Wathen

Architecture Publications and Other Works

As religiosity fades from Western society, a general apathy

has begun to pervade contemporary life. The role of

religion as the orientation point of life (for many people)

has vanished leaving voids within the cultural fabric. The

post-modern movement epitomized this well through the

embrace of a life devoid of purposeful meaning and infinite

interpretation. Through this we have lost the sense

of the sacred and the careful reverence of things higher

than ourselves.

How can architecture induce this sense of the sacred?

Site: Abandoned Railway Tunnel (Detroit to Windsor)

Program: Pedestrian crossing and Contemplative Park

Goal: design a daily ...
