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

La Geografía De La Violencia, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

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 ...

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 ...

Rueda No Renovará El Fútbol Ecuatoriano, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El partido de eliminatorias de Ecuador con Uruguay significó el fin de una época que se inició con Dussan Draskovic y culminó con Sixto Vizuete. A partir de ese momento, la Selección nacional ha pasado a la deriva, bajó al último lugar en el ranking sudamericano de la FIFA y perdió oportunidades maravillosas para renovar el sistema futbolístico del país. Los últimos partidos de la Selección que dirigió Sixto Vizuete -en este período fueron de relleno- estuvieron enmarcados en objetivos básicamente vinculados a los intereses económicos de la Federación, dejando de lado la posibilidad de construir una nueva propuesta deportiva ...


'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 ...

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 ...

Multi-Channel Orchestral Anechoic Recordings For Auralizations, Michelle C. Vigeant, Lily M. Wang, Jens Holger Rindel, Claus Lynge Christensen, Anders Christian Gade

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

Multi-channel orchestral anechoic recordings were obtained at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in June 2005. Every orchestral part of specific movements of two symphonies, Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, 3rd movement, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in g minor, 1st movement, were digitally recorded using five 0.5” DPA microphones, with four surrounding the musicians in the horizontal plane and the fifth directly above. The recordings were made in DTU’s large anechoic chamber, which has free space of about 1000 m3 and a lower frequency limit of 50 Hz. Each musician was recorded individually, and to assist with ...


Examining The Relationships Between Monaural And Binaural Classroom Acoustics Parameters And Student Achievement, Lauren M. Ronsse, Lily M. Wang, Paul L. Sim 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Examining The Relationships Between Monaural And Binaural Classroom Acoustics Parameters And Student Achievement, Lauren M. Ronsse, Lily M. Wang, Paul L. Sim

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

This study investigates the relationships between several classroom acoustics parameters and student achievement. Detailed binaural room impulse response measurements were conducted in four elementary school classrooms in a midwestern public school system in the United States. Unoccupied background noise levels were also recorded in these spaces. Previous studies have compared how different room acoustics metrics predict speech intelligibility, while another investigation examined perception-based binaural metrics in a typical classroom. This study extends these previous research areas by comparing both binaural classroom acoustics metrics and unoccupied background noise levels to each other and to the standardized student achievement scores of students ...


Maywood A-Bridged: A Thesis About Engagement, Leslie Joanne Worthey 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Maywood A-Bridged: A Thesis About Engagement, Leslie Joanne Worthey

Masters Theses

This is a thesis based on the idea that things in our environment, through neglect or ignorance, become invisible, despite an essence of virtue. The idea stems from the literary work of Fyoder Dostoevsky, particularly his depictions of fallen women. In stories such as “Notes from the Underground,” Liza, the prostitute, is his most virtuous character. My exploration of this idea culminates in the design of an advocacy center for the community of Maywood, California and the Los Angeles River, including a gathering center in which residents of the community and environmentalists may come together on equal social footing.

(Re)Discovering Civitas: The L.A.Gora, Douglas Russ Newby

Masters Theses

The purpose of this study was the development of an architectural methodology capable of re-establishing polycentric civitas in the City of Los Angeles. To establish a new civic design framework for the city of Los Angeles, research and analysis was conducted in many fields using several different methods. A review of literature pertaining to the historic establishment of civitas serves an analysis of the different forms of public space in Western civilization. An analysis of urbanism in Los Angeles was conducted using existing literature related to the topic, while an analysis of the neighborhood chosen as the site for the ...
