Em seu livro Os doze sobreviventes, Robert Myers comenta a preocupação em expandir projetos-pilotos de desenvolvimento e chama atenção para o seguinte fato: a pressão para que sejam oferecidas soluções de grande alcance torna-se, com freqüência, um problema. " Por ironia, embora sejam humanitários os motivos que geram preocupação com a cobertura, é exatamente o aspecto humano que corre risco de perder-se no processo, quando o que está em mira são ações cada vez maiores. Quando o essencial passa a ser a mais ampla cobertura possível - objetivo, às vezes, alcançado - atribui-se uma importância indevida aos números, tornando-os um fim em si ...

Newcastle is a city redolent with images. Perhaps the most dominant of these is of a male industrial working environment deriving from the days of the 'coally seaport', while other aspects of its identity, such as the female and the Aboriginal, are suppressed and obscured (Dunn et al., 1995). Another recurrent image is of profound community, of solidaritty. This is evident in the 'Our Town' epithet applied to numerous local businesses. 5uch an image is portrayed in the cartoon by Eggleston, where the SS Newcastle is under siege from economic, political and physical forces, where the (all male) inhabitants, clinging ...

During self-motions different patterns of optic flow are presented to the left and right eyes. Previous research has, however, focussed mainly on the self-motion information contained in a single pattern of optic flow. The current studies investigated the role that binocular disparity plays in the visual perception of self-motion, showing that the addition of stereoscopic cues to optic flow significantly improves forwards linear vection in central vision. Improvements were also achieved by adding changing-size cues to sparse (but not dense) flow patterns. These findings showed that assumptions in the heading literature that stereoscopic cues only facilitate self-motion when the optic ...
