To Fight Homelessness, Turn Project 50 Into Project 10,000, Dennis Culhane

Dennis P. Culhane

The pilot program that puts the 50 most chronically homeless into supportive housing is a success. L.A. should follow New York's lead and turn Project 50 into real policy.


La Geografía De La Violencia, Fernando Carrión Mena 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Geografía De La Violencia, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

La violencia y el delito tienen un emplazamiento específico en el territorio, porque los dos tienden a territorializarse de acuerdo a las lógicas del delito y a las características del espacio. Eso quiere decir que hay una relación muy clarea entre delito y espacio que finalmente se expresa, por ejemplo, en que “se roban bancos donde hay bancos” o en que puede existir cuatrerismo donde existe ganado.

Pero así como hay una lógica espacial, también se puede encontrar una dinámica temporal propia de cada una de las violencias. Así se tienen que ciertos delitos son proclives a cometerse en ciertas ...

An Assessement Of The Link Between Greenhouse Gass Emissions Inventories And Climate Action Plans, Michael R. Boswell, Adrienne Greve, Tammy L. Seale 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

An Assessement Of The Link Between Greenhouse Gass Emissions Inventories And Climate Action Plans, Michael R. Boswell, Adrienne Greve, Tammy L. Seale

City and Regional Planning

In this article, we review local climate action plans and their associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventories from 30 U.S cities in order to assess the degree to which climate action plans are informed by such inventories and to identify choices and assumptions the inventories require that may influence climate action plan policies and proposed actions. We hope this will help planners preparing climate action plans make informed, clear, and defensible choices, as well as optimize policy development and implementation in their communities. In addition, we hope that this research will contribute to refining future GHG emissions inventory protocols ...


Fútbol Y Mujeres, Una Relación Irresuelta, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Fútbol Y Mujeres, Una Relación Irresuelta, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

La FIFA tiene un registro de 250 millones de personas que juegan fútbol a nivel mundial. Si este dato se lo compara con la población de los países más habitados del mundo, la Federación ocuparía el quinto lugar, pero tendría una característica que distorsiona significativamente: solo el 11 por ciento de esa población es femenina. Esta situación es explicable debido a que existen prácticas importantes de discriminación hacia las mujeres en el fútbol, venida de la larga tradición cultural de la naturaleza machista vinculada a este deporte, que tuvo su inicio en el origen moderno del mismo: las vertientes naturales ...


El Aquí Y El Allá De La Migración, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Aquí Y El Allá De La Migración, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Uno de los flujos más importantes en la era actual es la migración internacional de población; cuestión que evidencia que el mundo ha entrado en un nuevo ciclo de nomadismo, a pesar de muros, de estigmas, de leyes y de fronteras simbólicas; al extremo que la migración ha terminado convirtiéndose en un delito en los lugares de destino y en un mecanismo de articulación de espacios distintos, distantes y discontinuos.

La migración internacional provoca que las segundas y terceras ciudades de algunos países de América Latina estén fuera de los territorios nacionales constituyendo redes interurbanas transnacionales. Según García Canclini, la ...


Investigation Of Patient Perception Of Hospital Noise And Sound Level Measurements: Before, During, And After Renovations Of A Hospital Wing, Cassandra H. Wiese 2010 UNL Omaha

Investigation Of Patient Perception Of Hospital Noise And Sound Level Measurements: Before, During, And After Renovations Of A Hospital Wing, Cassandra H. Wiese

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

Acoustic conditions in hospitals have been shown to influence a patient’s physical and psychological health. Noise levels in an Omaha, Nebraska, hospital were measured and compared between various times: before, during, and after renovations of a hospital wing. The renovations included cosmetic changes and the installation of new in-room patient audio-visual systems. Sound pressure levels were logged every 10-seconds over a four-day period in three different locations: at the nurses' station, in the hallway, and in a nearby patient’s room. The resulting data were analyzed in terms of the hourly A-weighted equivalent sound pressure levels (𝐿𝐴eq) as ...

The Energetic Retrofit Of Historic Masonry Buildings : Focus On Central And Northern Europe, Emil Alexandru Dinu Popa 2010 Carnegie Mellon University

The Energetic Retrofit Of Historic Masonry Buildings : Focus On Central And Northern Europe, Emil Alexandru Dinu Popa

Theses

40% of the total energy consumed in Europe is consumed by building operation and usage (Itard, et al., 2008). In the temperate climate of central and northern Europe, a significant proportion of this consumption is attributed to building heating during the winter months. Although recent trends in European legislation favor an increase in thermal efficiency of building enclosures for new constructions, the majority of the building stock consists of buildings built to a lower standard of energy efficiency.

Over 56 % of the building stock in the central and northern European countries was built before 1970, when the first building energy ...

El Fútbol Y La Sociedad Del Conocimiento, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Hemos entrado en la sociedad del conocimiento como nivel histórico superior de la sociedad industrial, la cual se fundamenta en el desarrollo de las nuevas tecnologías de la comunicación que permiten producir, almacenar, sistematizar y difundir un cúmulo infinito de información. El fútbol no está ausente de esta realidad, mucho más si ahora este deporte es una industria cultural que es parte y aporta a este proceso general. Hoy más que nunca el fútbol requiere para su desarrollo e innovación de información transformada en conocimiento; esto es, de la interpretación de los datos compilados bajo objetivos explícitos. Un fútbol cada ...

Amo El Amor De Casillas, Que Besa Y Se Va, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El mundial de Sudáfrica 2010 permitió al mundo entero romper con los imaginarios venidos del prejuicio, la ignorancia y del negocio del turismo: continente negro, temperaturas altas, paisaje de safaris, leones en desiertos, incapacidad de organizar un evento planetario, mundo tribal pobre, de robo y violencia. Pero también permitió descubrir un continente que tiene estaciones, que hace frío, que hay geografía de altura, que hay ciudades de gran calidad, que hay población blanca, que existe gente capaz de organizar un evento mundial y que hay instituciones.

Se puede afirmar que el último mundial de fútbol produjo un cambio en los ...


Evaluation Of And Behavior Toward The Visual Retail Environment: Function Of Consumers’ Visual Aesthetic Sensitivity, Sarah Eubanks Wilhoit 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Evaluation Of And Behavior Toward The Visual Retail Environment: Function Of Consumers’ Visual Aesthetic Sensitivity, Sarah Eubanks Wilhoit

Doctoral Dissertations

The primary goal of retail environments is to stimulate positive behavior from consumers viewing the fulfilled plan of the designer or architect. This study explores the influence of the consumer trait, visual aesthetic sensitivity, upon the visual aesthetic design features of the store environment and consumer behavior. Treatment of the visual aesthetic design features of the retail environment as an integrated, holistic arrangement demonstrate the dynamic interrelation of the environment and perception as explained by Gestalt theory. Data was collected through traditional survey techniques. Statistical analyses using exploratory factor analysis, ANCOVA, and MANCOVA reveal distinct differences between consumers with high ...

125th And Amsterdam: Creating Spaces For Social Interaction, Joshua Payne 2010 Roger Williams University

125th And Amsterdam: Creating Spaces For Social Interaction, Joshua Payne

Architecture Theses

This Project is designed to address the negative aspects of gentrification in an urban context, specifically Harlem, NYC. This is relevant to the current situation in Harlem as 125th Street, its main corridor, is being revitalized and wealthy investors are buying property in the area. Through sitting, programming and integrated design, my goal is to relieve the tension between two drastically different socioeconomic neighborhoods as they are becoming one.


Intricacies Of Professional Certifications For Quality Management (Qm), Edmund R. Martelli 2010 Western Kentucky University

Intricacies Of Professional Certifications For Quality Management (Qm), Edmund R. Martelli

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The modern manufacturing marketplace is extremely complex and constantly changing. Career professionals often seek job placement, career advancement, and continuing education through professional certifications. Professional certifications in the United States (U.S.) have been evolving since 1911. In the 1950s, engineering groups established professional certifications and licenses. In the 1980s, administration of accreditation of certification programs proliferated, and by the 1990s, many government and professional organizations sought to standardize procedures for the industry. Currently, professional certifications are available for virtually every profession and issued by multitudes of organizations.

Quality management (QM) encompasses an extensive combination ofprofessional abilities. Providers of professional ...


An Exogenous Approach To Circumventing Demolition By Neglect: The Impact Of Agricultural Preservation On Historic Colonial Towns, Galen Newman 2010 Clemson University

An Exogenous Approach To Circumventing Demolition By Neglect: The Impact Of Agricultural Preservation On Historic Colonial Towns, Galen Newman

All Dissertations

The effects of city decentralization and counter-urbanization of the American landscape have resulted in simultaneous negative impacts on both historic structures and agricultural landscapes. Rapid conversion of farmland has helped to facilitate the relocation of both populations and commercial activities in communities across the United States, leaving inner cities replete with functionless, unused, and unmaintained heritage structures. As civic core areas have become shells of their former selves, many once-vital structures have been removed while others have been abandoned and left to decay--a process known as demolition by neglect. While historic preservation efforts have attempted to salvage these historic structures ...


'The Edge Of The Island': Neighborhood Identity And Evolving Community In 'Liminal Places', Gordon Douglas 2010 University of Chicago

'The Edge Of The Island': Neighborhood Identity And Evolving Community In 'Liminal Places', Gordon Douglas

Faculty Publications, Urban and Regional Planning

This paper examines the contemporary processes at work in urban areas without clear spatial identities that are simultaneously facing the challenges of cultural change and gentrification. I do so through the close analysis of one such ‘liminal place’ on Chicago’s West Side. I use the phrase ‘a community on the edge of the island’ to describe the area, inspired by an interview subject who referred to the tenuous search for a sort of ideal bohemian hipness as the need to stay as “close to the edge of the island” as possible without actually leaving it. Making use of ethnographic ...
