Environmental Impact Assessment U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers Levee Vegetation Policy, Danielle Gross, Iisak Lussenden, Cailan Murray, Michael Rall, Anthony Vendetti, Anna Wilmot 2010 Western Washington University

Environmental Impact Assessment U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers Levee Vegetation Policy, Danielle Gross, Iisak Lussenden, Cailan Murray, Michael Rall, Anthony Vendetti, Anna Wilmot

College of the Environment Graduate and Undergraduate Publications

The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) requires that any action that may have a significant adverse impact on the environment undergo an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Chapter 197-11 of the Washington Administrative Code (WAC) indicates these requirements. Under the no action alternative, the Seattle variance allows such that vegetation less than four inches in diameter, not weakening or causing damage within fifteen feet of the toe of the levee, may remain. The proposed action returns the Seattle District to a standard regulation across the United States, not allowing the Seattle variance. This would result in the removal of vegetation greater …

The proposed action is the development of approximately 545 acres located in the Yew Street area within the Lake Padden watershed. The area will be rezoned from R10 densities to UR3, UR4, RR2, and ROS. This will result in the urbanization of this area, which will include approximately 900 additional housing units.

A Multi-Disciplinary Overview Of Chagas In Periurban Peru, Sarah Mccune, Angela M. Bayer, Gabrielle C. Hunter, Natalie M. Bowman, Juan G. Cornejo Del Carpio, Cesar Naquira, Robert H. Gilman, Caryn Bern, Michael Z. Levy

Journal of International and Global Studies

There are between 8 and 11 million cases of America Human Trypanosomiasis, commonly known as Chagas disease, in Latin America. Chagas is endemic in southern Peru, especially the Arequipa region, where it has expanded from poor, rural areas to periurban communities. This paper summarizes the findings of four studies in periurban Arequipa: on determinants of disease-vector infestation; on prevalence, spatial patterns, and risk factors of Chagas; on links between migration, settlement patterns, and disease-vector infestation; and on the relationship between discordant test results and spatially clustered transmission hotspots. These studies identified two risk factors associated with the disease: population dynamics …


The Art Of Governing The Self And Others In The Christian Philippines, Pak Nung Wong D.Phil. 2010 Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The Art Of Governing The Self And Others In The Christian Philippines, Pak Nung Wong D.Phil.

Journal of International and Global Studies

Through an ethnographic depiction of cultural creolization, this paper will detail the ways in which traditional Filipino values have been successfully mixing with and eventually lodging into the intersubjective landscape of Cagayan Valley, where the Chinese, Ibanag, Ilocano, and Itawes ethnic groups dwell. This cultural creolization process informs the ways in which the imagined social reciprocity between the self and others has been governed by a historically constituted power/knowledge system: the padrino system. This system is mainly composed of the symbiotic codes and social practices of (1) Catholicized ritual kinship and (2) the Tagalog ethics of “debt of gratitude” (utang …

Decisive Thaw: The Changing Pattern Of Relations Between Nigeria And Equatorial Guinea, 1980-2005, David Aworawo Ph.D. 2010 University of Lagos

Decisive Thaw: The Changing Pattern Of Relations Between Nigeria And Equatorial Guinea, 1980-2005, David Aworawo Ph.D.

Journal of International and Global Studies

This article examines the nature and changing pattern of relations between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea from 1980-2005. It states that relations between the countries improved tremendously in the quarter century covered in this study compared to the two decades preceding that time frame (1960-1980) due to of a number of domestic political and economic changes that occurred in both countries, as well as the transformation of the international system in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The paper explores the specific changes that took place in Nigerian-Equatorial Guinean relations from1980 onwards and the factors that influenced them. The termination of …


Theorizing Impending Peripheries: Postindustrial Landscapes At The Edge Of Hyper-Modernity’S Collapse, Ismael Vaccaro Ph.D. 2010 McGill University

Theorizing Impending Peripheries: Postindustrial Landscapes At The Edge Of Hyper-Modernity’S Collapse, Ismael Vaccaro Ph.D.

Journal of International and Global Studies

This article discusses the ways in which the predominant economic mechanisms of capitalism, characterized by a hyper-mobility of flows, affect actual places and people. The rationality informing these mechanisms is the quest for a reduction of costs and the increase of potential benefit, and this can only be achieved by jumping from locale to locale searching for a cheaper labor force, new pools of resources, or an absence of environmental regulations. Mobility becomes the fundamental framework through which to understand modernity and its new economic articulations and their associated sovereignties. Anthropology has often discussed and theorized the impact of market …

Mastering The Midas Touch: The Indo-Trinidadian Diaspora In North America And England, 1967-2007, Jerome Teelucksingh Ph.D. 2010 University of West Indies

Mastering The Midas Touch: The Indo-Trinidadian Diaspora In North America And England, 1967-2007, Jerome Teelucksingh Ph.D.

Journal of International and Global Studies

This article will assess the experiences of the Indo-Trinidadian immigrant population during 1967 to 2007. The displaced Indo-Trinidadians residing in North America and Britain were challenged to define themselves in relation to Afro-Caribbean and Asian-Indian immigrants. The broad categories used to determine the success or failure of migration included culture, social mobility, identity and religion. The research will prove that the Indo-Trinidadian diaspora in North America and England have experienced considerable social mobility and acculturation.


The Poetics Of The Ancestor Songs Of The Tz’Utujil Maya Of Guatemala, Linda O’Brien-Rothe Ph.D. 2010 The Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala: Centro de Estudios Folklóricos

The Poetics Of The Ancestor Songs Of The Tz’Utujil Maya Of Guatemala, Linda O’Brien-Rothe Ph.D.

Journal of International and Global Studies

This essay attempts to define the relationship between a song tradition that survives in the Mayan highlands of Guatemala, and 16th century poetic Mayan literature. This song tradition of Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala is slowly disappearing as the socio-cultural context in which it flourished changes. By comparing the poetics of the song texts (including their rhythmic structure, versification, and use of poetic devices such as assonance, alliteration and onomatopoeia) to the poetics of the Popol Vuh, a K’iché Maya text probably copied from a manuscript that predates the Spanish invasion, a continuity is discovered that places the song texts squarely within …


Within-Group Ethnic Differences Of Black Male Stem Majors And Factors Affecting Their Persistence In College, Shane Y. Williamson Ed.D. 2010 Lindenwood University

Within-Group Ethnic Differences Of Black Male Stem Majors And Factors Affecting Their Persistence In College, Shane Y. Williamson Ed.D.

Journal of International and Global Studies

The present study examined how familial and institutional factors interact with the academic experiences of a diverse group of Black males enrolled as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors at one university. Ogbu’s (1998) Cultural-Ecological Theory of Minority School Performance, a theoretical framework, posits that the manner by which a group achieves minority status, coupled with community and family educational values, impacts academic achievement. Immigrants, voluntary minorities, perform better academically than involuntary minorities (nonimmigrants) because they are more accepting of and more likely to adapt to the White middle-class norms upon which schools in the United States are based …
