La Internacionalización De Los Centros Históricos, Fernando Carrión Mena Nov 2005

La Internacionalización De Los Centros Históricos, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El presente artículo busca desarrollar la idea de que los centros históricos sólo pueden entenderse en el marco de ciertas relaciones particulares, una de las cuales se define en el ámbito internacional. Y si llega a esta condición por el grado de las funciones de centralidad que tiene, Se parte de la premisa que el concepto centro es relativo, en el sentido que para ser tal debe definirse en un ámbito específico de relaciones: siempre se es centro de algo que lo contiene. En el caso que nos ocupa, el ámbito de la centralidad se define según el intensidad de ...


Translating Research Into Homelessness Policy And Practice: One Perspective From The United States, Dennis P. Culhane Oct 2005

Translating Research Into Homelessness Policy And Practice: One Perspective From The United States, Dennis P. Culhane

Dennis P. Culhane

Like social scientists everywhere, homelessness researchers in the US are usually ignored. Good science that identifies what causes homelessness, sound evaluations which document that certain programs will never work, and even evidence that promising solutions deserve broad replication, are often disregarded. Such wanton indifference for science would constitute malpractice in the field of medicine, but it sometimes passes as acceptable policy in the field of social welfare. Ideology, politics and preservation of the status quo usually prevail. So, what’s a well intentioned researcher to do? Persevere and become more tactical. After all, policy failures can’t be ignored forever ...

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

The mammalogy program at Texas Tech University officially was established in 1962, when Robert L. Packard joined the faculty of the Department of Biological Sciences. As the institution's first mammalogist, Packard took the initiative to develop a strong program of mammalian research and education. Influenced by the successful program built by his mentor, E. Raymond Hall, at the University of Kansas, Packard modeled similar goals for Texas Tech University. Those goals included a strong emphasis on both undergraduate and graduate education and research, with several mammalogy faculty members, and the establishment and growth of a large and active mammal ...


Pobres Las Ciudades De Pobres, Fernando Carrión Mena Aug 2005

Pobres Las Ciudades De Pobres, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

En América Latina, los años ochenta, en términos socioeconómicos, fueron definidos como la "década perdida". Las políticas de ajuste estructural dirigidas a solventar las llamadas variables macroeconómicas dejan -a estas alturas-una considerable deuda social que, en lugar de reducirse con el paso del tiempo, se incrementa considerablemente. Según el Banco Mundial, América Latina es la región del mundo con mayor grado de desigualdad social, lo cual hace que la pobreza sea impermeable al crecimiento económico y al gasto social.

Si bien la pobreza no es un fenómeno nuevo, sí se puede afirmar que durante los últimos años creció, se transformó ...

Yanet Lezama-López

Tomando como base dos de los paradigmas presentes en la práctica de la conservación (Ashworth, 1994), la preservación y el heritage, el artículo presenta, desde la perspectiva del diseño urbano contemporáneo, los principios de la conservación integrada de paisajes históricos construidos propuestos por la autora para el contexto mexicano. El estudio de caso, el centro histórico de la ciudad de Santiago de Querétaro, en México, permite presentar algunas recomendaciones que pueden ser aplicadas en los planes de manejo o gestión en otros sitios mexicanos inscritos en la lista del Patrimonio Mundial, a fin de contribuir constructivamente en la práctica de ...


Time-Series Analysis Of Clusters In City Size Distributions, Ahjond S. Garmestani, Craig R. Allen, K. Michael Bessey Aug 2005

Time-Series Analysis Of Clusters In City Size Distributions, Ahjond S. Garmestani, Craig R. Allen, K. Michael Bessey

Nebraska Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit -- Staff Publications

Complex systems, such as urban systems, emerge unpredictably without the influence of central control as a result of adaptive behavior by their component, interacting agents. This paper analyses city size distributions, by decade, from the south-western region of the United States for the years 1890–1990. It determines if the distributions were clustered and documents changes in the pattern of clusters over time. Clusters were determined utilizing a kernel density estimator and cluster analysis. The data were clustered as determined by both methods. The analyses identified 4–7 clusters of cities in each of the decades analysed. Cities cluster into ...

La Inseguridad Ciudadana En La Comunidad Andina, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Durante los últimos años la violencia urbana se ha convertido en uno de los temas más importantes de la ciudad andina, debido a las nuevas formas que asume, a los impactos sociales y económicos y al incremento de su magnitud. Las violencias se han extendido en todos los países y ciudades de la región con peculiaridades y ritmos propios, provocando cambios en las urbes. Allí las transformaciones en el urbanismo (amurallamiento de la ciudad, nuevas formas de segregación residencial), en los comportamientos de la población (angustia, desamparo), en la interacción social (reducción de la ciudadanía, nuevas formas de socialización) y ...

Visualizing Complexity : A Spatial Analysis Of Decorative Geometric Pattern In The Islamic World, 900-1400 Ad, Tracy Elizabeth Harrison Jun 2005

Visualizing Complexity : A Spatial Analysis Of Decorative Geometric Pattern In The Islamic World, 900-1400 Ad, Tracy Elizabeth Harrison

Dissertations and Theses

This study explores how the use of complex decorative geometric patterns in Islamic architecture spatially relates to advances in the fields of science and philosophy in the Islamic world between the ninth and fourteenth centuries. This project examines hypotheses developed by vario~s scholars on the forces that shaped the use of these patterns (known as the geometric mode) in Islamic architecture. The prevailing assumption that advances in mathematics contributed to the use of the geometric mode is used as a starting point for subsequent analysis.

For this study, two spatial databases were created. One contains over two hundred and ...

Examining The Basis For Change In Clark County Non-Conforming Zone Change Process, Was It Needed?, Maria D. Kaseko May 2005

Examining The Basis For Change In Clark County Non-Conforming Zone Change Process, Was It Needed?, Maria D. Kaseko

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

This study reviews Clark County's non-conforming zone change process from 1990 to 2002. A non-conforming zone change, sometimes known as a non-conforming zone boundary amendment is a proposed request that is not within the range of residential densities and/or non-residential intensities indicated on the applicable land use plan map, master plan, or concept plan. This research explores and examines two questions raised by the Clark County's new implementation plan, which was approved in April 2003 to amend the non-conforming zone change process. 1) Clark County assumed there was a public perception that non-conforming zone changes were being ...

Citizen Based Public Health Surveillance, Monitoring And Post-Event Assessments, Thomas Lyons Carr Iii Apr 2005

Citizen Based Public Health Surveillance, Monitoring And Post-Event Assessments, Thomas Lyons Carr Iii

Thomas Lyons (Thom) Carr III Appl.Sc., CEM

When a sudden on-set emergency or disaster affects a region or the whole country, communities and neighborhoods should plan for the possibility that emergency and other civic services will be disrupted and unavailable (District of Columbia 2003a, 2003b, 2004; Doyle 2004; Siskiyou County Public Health/NorCalBT.com 2004). The event may be severe enough that the routine public health surveillance and monitoring system will be disrupted or the system will not be able to provide data quickly enough to support state and local decisionmaking. A temporary post-disaster system should be planned for and implemented. The epidemiologist supporting the local decision ...

Livelihood Strategies And Performance Of Ghana’S Health And Education Sectors: Exploring The Connections, Francis Owusu Apr 2005

Livelihood Strategies And Performance Of Ghana’S Health And Education Sectors: Exploring The Connections, Francis Owusu

Community and Regional Planning Publications

The public sector in Africa is riddled with widespread ineffectiveness. Although some countries have implemented various reform programmes with the support of international development agencies, the results so far have been disappointing. One reason for the failure is that the policies have focussed more on achieving macroeconomic stability than making the organisations effective. This article explores a fundamental problem of the policies—the need to focus on the human component of organisational performance. Using education and health organisations in Ghana as examples, the article advances a hypothesis that the livelihood strategies of public sector employees and the performance of their ...

What Communities Should Do Pre-Event To Support Public Health Post-Event Assessments, Surveillance And Monitoring, Thomas Lyons Carr Iii Feb 2005

What Communities Should Do Pre-Event To Support Public Health Post-Event Assessments, Surveillance And Monitoring, Thomas Lyons Carr Iii

Thomas Lyons (Thom) Carr III Appl.Sc., CEM

[Abstract written March 2008, TLC] Under worst-case planning assumptions used by some major metropolitan areas, a Neighbor-to-Neighbor self-help program model is the primary link between citizens and the professional response personnel of the responsible government agencies.

In the Neighbor-to-Neighbor self-help program model or a Community Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) calls on the citizens in neighborhoods to identify and establish cluster emergency preparedness committees, Cluster Emergency Coordination Centers (CECC) and Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT). Missing from these plans or what is not articulated is how constant Public Health Post-Event Surveillance, Monitoring and Assessments will be done. Given the worst-case planning ...
