Sprawl In Canada And The United States, Michael E. Lewyn 2009 Florida Coastal School of Law

Sprawl In Canada And The United States, Michael E. Lewyn

Michael E Lewyn

The purpose of this paper is to ascertain (1) whether suburban sprawl is as widespread in Canadian metropolitan areas as in their American counterparts, and (2) whether Canadian government policies, and in particular Canadian municipal land use and transportation policies, encourage sprawl. The thesis concludes that sprawl is less widespread in two respects. First, Canadian central cities have not declined to the same extent as American central cities. Second, urban and suburban Canadians are less dependent on automobiles than are Americans. The thesis goes on to point out that in Canada, as in the United States, government land use and ...


Slave Landscapes Of The Carolina Low Country: What The Documents Reveal, Elizabeth Brabec 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Slave Landscapes Of The Carolina Low Country: What The Documents Reveal, Elizabeth Brabec

Elizabeth Brabec

Although much has been written about slave life in the antebellum south, comparatively little is understood about the physical setting of slave communities and their day-to-day life. Due to the lack of written documentation and few sketches, paintings or other images, the documentation of the physical setting of slave life is more difficult to compile than that of the plantation owners or even indentured servants. By completing a structured analysis of existing documentary evidence for a specific region of the South, the low country of South Carolina, the myths and realities of slave life in this region can be clarified ...

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 ...

Las proyecciones hacia el futuro determinan que podría haber un aumento de hasta 1,7°C de temperatura para el 2050 y hasta 4°C para el final de este siglo, lo que sería catastrófico para la sostenabilidad de vida en el planeta, tal y como la conocemos hoy, Los niveles de aumento del nivel del mar han alcanzado 2 a 3 mm/año desde 1980 en la región. Han sido observados también cambios en los patrones de precipitaciones, con algunas áreas recibiendo más lluvias-sur de Brasil.

Institutional Discharges And Subsequent Shelter Use Among Unaccompanied Adults In New York City, Stephen Metraux, Thomas Byrne, Dennis P. Culhane 2009 University of the Sciences in Philadelphia

Institutional Discharges And Subsequent Shelter Use Among Unaccompanied Adults In New York City, Stephen Metraux, Thomas Byrne, Dennis P. Culhane

Dennis P. Culhane

This study empirically examines the link between homelessness and discharges from other institutions. An administrative record match was undertaken to determine rates of discharge from institutional care for 9,247 unaccompanied adult shelter users in New York City. Cluster analysis and multinomial logistic regression analysis was then used to assess associations between different types of institutional discharges and the likelihood of persons subsequently experiencing extended shelter stays. Results show that 28% of the cohort was discharged from institutional care within the 90-day period preceding their initial shelter entry, with different types of institutional discharge associated with differences in subsequent patterns ...


Tackling Homelessness In Los Angeles' Skid Row: The Role Of Policing Strategies And The Spatial Deconcentration Of Homelessness, Dennis P. Culhane 2009 University of Pennsylvania

Tackling Homelessness In Los Angeles' Skid Row: The Role Of Policing Strategies And The Spatial Deconcentration Of Homelessness, Dennis P. Culhane

Dennis P. Culhane

While recent research suggests that policing interventions can reduce crime through the spatial deconcentration of street homelessness in Skid Row, such efforts will not succeed on a sustained basis. The city and county need a more comprehensive plan that includes targeted housing development for people who are chronically homeless, along with the spatial deconcentration and repurposing of existing homeless programs.


Behavioral Health Services Use Among Heads Of Homeless And Housed Poor Families, Jung Min Park, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane 2009 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Behavioral Health Services Use Among Heads Of Homeless And Housed Poor Families, Jung Min Park, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane

Dennis P. Culhane

Objectives. This study compares the use of and cost for behavioral health services among heads of homeless and housed poor families. Methods. Medicaid records for 59,135 heads of families receiving Temporary Assistance to Needy Families benefits were matched with data from Philadelphia’s municipal shelter system. Propensity score matching was used to select a matched control group to those identified as having been homeless between 1997 and 2003. Behavioral health services utilization was then assessed based on Medicaid claims records. Results. Substantially higher levels of behavioral health services use and corresponding costs were found among heads of families with ...

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 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 ...

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.

Sensory Gardens: Assessing Their Design And Use, Hazreena Hussein 2009 Universiti Malaya

Sensory Gardens: Assessing Their Design And Use, Hazreena Hussein

Hazreena Hussein

This article investigates the design and use of sensory gardens by evaluating their zones and how they are utilized. Preliminary site studies were undertaken in 14 sensory gardens around the UK, followed by more detailed data collection at two case-study sites. The aim was to discover features that enable user behaviours and use of spaces in sensory gardens. The data collection included interview, observation and behaviour mapping, which is used in conjunction with affordance theory. The findings from the data analysis also draw on Moore and Cosco’s multi-method approach.
