Descentralización Y Participación Social, Fernando Carrión Mena Dec 1997

Descentralización Y Participación Social, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las principales características del Estado Nacional en el Ecuador pueden definirse en los siguientes términos: Estado unitario, régimen presidencialista, organización descentralizada (a través de provincias y cantones) y sectorializada (ministerios), y estructura funcional (ejecutivo, legislativo y judicial).

Todo Estado unitario, en su integración, da prioridad a los siguientes criterios:

1. Mayor importancia de lo sectorial sobre lo territorial, lo cual significa que la intervención estatal se la hace desde ciertos recortes de la realidad definidos por el centro y hacia la periferia. En la actualidad el desarrollo nacional descansa en las políticas sectoriales, descuidando las regionales, provinciales y locales.

Simulation Study Of Learning Automata Games In Automated Highway Systems, Cem Unsal, Pushkin Kachroo, John S. Bay Nov 1997

Simulation Study Of Learning Automata Games In Automated Highway Systems, Cem Unsal, Pushkin Kachroo, John S. Bay

Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty Publications

One of the most important issues in Automated Highway System (AHS) deployment is intelligent vehicle control. While the technology to safely maneuver vehicles exists, the problem of making intelligent decisions to improve a single vehicle’s travel time and safety while optimizing the overall traffic flow is still a stumbling block. We propose an artificial intelligence technique called stochastic learning automata to design an intelligent vehicle path controller. Using the information obtained by on-board sensors and local communication modules, two automata are capable of learning the best possible (lateral and longitudinal) actions to avoid collisions. This learning method is capable ...


Sliding Mode For User Equilibrium Dynamic Traffic Routing Control, Pushkin Kachroo, Kaan Ozbay Nov 1997

Sliding Mode For User Equilibrium Dynamic Traffic Routing Control, Pushkin Kachroo, Kaan Ozbay

Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty Publications

Presents a solution to the user equilibrium dynamic traffic routing (DTR) problem for a point diversion case using feedback control methodology. The sliding mode control technique which is a robust control methodology applicable to nonlinear systems in canonical form is employed to solve the user equilibrium DTR problem. The canonical form for this problem is obtained by using a feedback linearization technique, and the uncertainties of the system are countered by using the sliding mode principle. Simulation results show promising results.

Contemporary Music And The Manufacturing Region: Reflections On Reality, John Mullin, Tracie Seder Hines

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

Despite long odds, some distressed, high unemployment regions in the United States survive, revitalize, and prosper. While there are many reasons for their success, we hypothesize that a strong sense of community helps make bearable the anger, frustration, despair, and irrationality that accompany high job losses in a region.

Without Jobs, R.I.'S Place On Livibility Lists Is Weak, Chester Smolski Sep 1997

Without Jobs, R.I.'S Place On Livibility Lists Is Weak, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"All of us like to know and be part of the best places, whether this be restaurants, hospitals, colleges, golf courses, or whatever, so we rank them. These range from the international, where we rank levels of corruption by countries, to the local, where we rate the best clam shacks. And though we may not agree with some of the rankings, we find most of them useful in terms of making connections with places we know."


El Regreso A La Ciudad Construida, Fernando Carrión Mena Sep 1997

El Regreso A La Ciudad Construida, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

La relación entre suelo urbano y ciudad es indisoluble; es tan así que durante mucho tiempo se los entendió como si fueran lo mismo. Por eso, originalmente el desarrollo urbano fue concebido como el resultado de los cambios en los usos de suelo propuestos por la planificación urbana.

Si bien esta comprensión inicial perdura hasta ahora, no se puede negar la existencia de un avance en la comprensión de la temática urbana, que ha llevado a superar esta visión espacialista caracterizada por la sobredeterminación de lo espacial sobre lo social. Pero también, por aquella antítesis que postula la llamada «teoría ...


The Struggle Over Parcel C: How Boston’S Chinatown Won A Victory In The Fight Against Institutional Expansionism And Environmental Racism, Andrew Leong Sep 1997

The Struggle Over Parcel C: How Boston’S Chinatown Won A Victory In The Fight Against Institutional Expansionism And Environmental Racism, Andrew Leong

Institute for Asian American Studies Publications

For the last fifty years, Boston’s Chinatown has been a shrinking community. Squeezed in by highways on two sides, its land is being gradually consumed by two medical institutions, Tufts University Medical School and New England Medical Center. During the last few decades, these two medical institutions have swallowed up nearly one third of the land in Boston’s Chinatown. Despite this, both medical institutions want more. In its latest attempt at institutional expansion, New England Medical Center made an offer to the City of Boston in early 1993 to acquire a small plot of land in Chinatown called ...

Issues In The Design Of A Stop-Level Transit Patronage Model, James G. Strathman, Kenneth Dueker, Zhongren Peng

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

Tri-Met, the transit agency serving the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area is implementing a new bus dispatching system (BDS) that includes automated vehicle location (AVL) technology. An important objective in the agency's decision to invest in a new dispatching system was to maintain or improve service reliability in an urban environment characterized by rapid growth and worsening traffic congestion.


Moving Along: An Exploratory Study Of Homeless Women With Children Using A Transitional Housing Program, Sondra J. Fogel Sep 1997

Moving Along: An Exploratory Study Of Homeless Women With Children Using A Transitional Housing Program, Sondra J. Fogel

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The increase in the number of women and children who are homeless, particularly in the last fifteen years, has generated the innovation of shelters that combine longer term housing arrangements and social services. These organizations are usually called "transitional housing," intended to assist this population toward the economic goal of "self-sufficiency." The impact and success of this strategy is often debated. However, there has been scant research investigating how residents of this setting use skills and resources to secure housing outcomes and community re-integration. Through multiple in-depth interviews and other qualitative data collecting strategies, a conceptual model is presented which ...

Thoughts On Edward Bellamy As City Planner: The Ordered Art Of Geometry, John R. Mullin, Kenneth Payne Aug 1997

Thoughts On Edward Bellamy As City Planner: The Ordered Art Of Geometry, John R. Mullin, Kenneth Payne

John R. Mullin

Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward was one of the most influential books in the evolution of city planning as a profession and field of scholarly inquiry. And yet, upon the hundredth year of his death, this classic is rarely used when examining the roots of the profession. The paper begins by summarizing the book itself: on one level it is a simple novel of the Gilded Age; on another, it provided a vision of the future that indirectly has helped to guide the evolution of the American community. The paper examines the factors that are fundamental in planning and how ...
