Editorial Boletín 'Ciudad Segura' Nº 39. Bienes Culturales: Venta, Jaime Erazo Espinosa

Jaime F. Erazo Espinosa

El Tráfico Ilícito de Bienes Culturales (TIBC), demanda, entre otras, de tres condiciones para su funcionamiento; la primera se vincula con la debilidad de la legislatura nacional para penalizar esta problemática; la segunda con responsabilizar y focalizar a únicas personas (por ejemplo banqueros) el surgimiento o mantención de cadenas de comercialización ilegal y la consecuente destrucción del patrimonio; y la tercera con preocupantes vacios conscientes de valor de los/as ciudadanos/as por lo que fue y lo que es nuestra historia y nuestra cultura. Demanda también, para su mismo funcionamiento, de opacos y distintos mecanismos: autorizaciones de importación y ...


Planning Urban Sidewalks: Infrastructure, Daily Life, And Destinations, Renia Ehrenfeucht, Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris 2009 University of New Orleans

Planning Urban Sidewalks: Infrastructure, Daily Life, And Destinations, Renia Ehrenfeucht, Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris

Renia Ehrenfeucht

Sidewalks have become important to diverse planning concerns that range from walking for health and transportation to economic development, recreation and environment improvement. Given their multiple roles in rapidly changing cities, this paper asks ’how should we plan sidewalks?’ We contend that planners can create better cities for more people by reconsidering three facets of sidewalk planning: sidewalks as infrastructure, sidewalks as spaces of everyday life, and sidewalks as leisure destinations. The objective is to build quality infrastructure and more adaptable spaces throughout the city

What Would Coase Do? (About Parking Regulation), Michael E. Lewyn 2009 Florida Coastal School of Law

What Would Coase Do? (About Parking Regulation), Michael E. Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

American municipalities typically require landowners to provide visitors and guests with ample amounts of parking, in order to prevent externalities such as cruising (drivers wasting gasoline and polluting the air while searching for scarce parking). However, minimum parking requirements may create social harms that outweigh this benefit. By artificially increasing the supply of parking, minimum parking requirements effectively subsidize driving, thus increasing rather than decreasing pollution and congestion.


Community Benefits Agreements And Local Government: A Review Of Recent Evidence, Laura Wolf-Powers 2009 University of Pennsylvania

Community Benefits Agreements And Local Government: A Review Of Recent Evidence, Laura Wolf-Powers

Laura Wolf-Powers

As community benefits agreements (CBAs) become more common in urban redevelopment, they are generating conceptual confusion and political controversy. Planners who encounter CBA campaigns in practice have limited means of evaluating CBAs’ desirability and likely impact without a more complete understanding of how they interact in practice with municipal government leadership and policy. This paper examines four urban redevelopment projects in which community benefits agreements have been enacted by some combination of community organizations, legislators and developers. While much of the expository literature on community benefits agreements is focused on the inclusivity and political moxy of local organizing coalitions, I ...

El Mercado De Jugadores, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Estamos finalizando la temporada de fútbol en Europa y con ella la compra y venta de entrenadores y futbolistas empieza a moverse con fuerza. La oferta y demanda de los “pies de obra” se abren implacablemente, con lo cual los países importadores son los que imponen las normas y las reglas del mercado. No solo que dividen al mundo según las estaciones de su temporada, con lo cual los países exportadores tienen que acomodarse haciendo dos torneos por año, sino también las nuevas modalidades de contratación de futbolistas sigue la lógica de los clubes importadores.

Los Estatutos de la FIFA ...


El Laberinto De Las Centralidades Históricas En América Latina. El Centro Histórico Como Objeto De Deseo, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2009 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Laberinto De Las Centralidades Históricas En América Latina. El Centro Histórico Como Objeto De Deseo, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Para desarrollar esta propuesta, el libro seguirá una lógica de exposición organizada bajo seis capítulos de desarrollo secuencial, que tienen un hilo con- ductor en el hecho de que los centros históricos tienen historia y son históricos. El capítulo 2, El objeto de pensamiento, aboca el conocimiento de las corrientes, categorías y principios que permiten comprender el centro histórico dentro de la nueva coyuntura urbana (nuevo patrón de urbanización), modificando así los instrumentos teórico-metodológicos tradicionales. Estas concepciones se desarrollan con base en lineamientos que conceptualizan el centro histórico como relación social, configurada desde las distintas variables multi-disciplinares que lo conforman ...

Children’S Participation In Educational Projects And Sustainable Design – Comparing The Uk And Nicaraguan Contexts: An Interview With Harry Shier, 17th January 2009, Andrea S. Wheeler 2009 University of Nottingham

Children’S Participation In Educational Projects And Sustainable Design – Comparing The Uk And Nicaraguan Contexts: An Interview With Harry Shier, 17th January 2009, Andrea S. Wheeler

Andrea S. Wheeler

Born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1954, Harry Shier lived and worked in England for 25 years, initially on adventure playgrounds, then in training adults working with children out of school. In 1981 he founded Playtrain, an independent training agency specialising in children’s rights, play and creativity. In the 1990s he worked and wrote extensively on children’s rights and participation, most notably developing the “Article 31 Children’s Consultancy Scheme”, which enables young children to act as specialist consultants to the senior management of diverse cultural institutions, helping them make facilities and programmes more child-friendly. This experience was crystallised ...


El Sexo Alrededor Del Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2009 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Sexo Alrededor Del Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El sexo ronda y está presente en el fútbol de manera ineludible y no es para menos, dado que tiene presencia en las visiones de los diferentes actores; sin embargo no se lo trata abiertamente porque priman los prejuicios de una sociedad que pretende negar esta realidad. Las entradas son múltiples y hoy se quiere ejemplificar con algunas de ellas.

Desde la literatura se lo ha asumido principalmente a partir de las metáforas, siendo una de las más conocidas la que reivindica al gol como un orgasmo, al arco como la vagina y a la pelota como el instrumento masculino ...

Review Of Immigration And Integration In Urban Communities: Renegotiating The City, Ed. Lisa Hanley, Blair Ruble, And Allison Garland, Clara Irazabal

Clara Irazabal

This book challenges the prevailing, counterpoising paradigms of immigration studies and integration strategies -- multiculturalism and assimilationism -- by noting that host communities are not as static and migrants are constantly evolving, reacting and adapting to each other.


Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović 2009 East Carolina University

Art And Architecture: Serbian, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

From the 9th-century conversion to Christianity until the 11th century, the ecclesiastical art and architecture of the Serbs, both Orthodox and Roman Catholic, shared the concurrent accomplishments of the Croats, Latins, and Greeks. All of these groups cohabited the territories between the rivers Bojana and Cetina in Duklja (Zeta, Montenegro), Zahumlje (Herzegovina), and their littoral. Wall *paintings, donor *portraits, inscriptions in Greek and Latin, and architectural *sculpture on *windows, portals, capitals, *chancel screens, *ciboria, and baptismal fonts, reveal influences of pre-Romanesque, Romanesque, and Byzantine models. Instructive examples come from the 9th-century *rotunda of St. Triphon at Kotor (809?), replaced by ...

Art And Architecture: Russia, Jelena Bogdanović

Jelena Bogdanović

Receiving Christianity only in 988/9, the East Slavic Rus' expressly appropriated art and architecture based on Byzantine models and elaborated their own styles. *Kiev, *Novgorod, and *Vladimir (Suzdalia) define the major foci of Rus' accomplishments in the pre-Mongolian period, before the 1230s. Only after the battle at *Kulikovo (1380) did monumental arts revive. And only when Prince Ivan the Great (r. 1462–1505) commissioned architects Aristotele Fioravanti and Alevisio Novi to work in the *Kremlin did the Italian Renaissance significantly influence Russian architecture.
