  • A context-sensitive approach to sustainable planning and development helps to protect public health, safety, andwelfare. By avoiding inherent site problems, or constraints, and by capitalizing on inherent site assets, or opportunities, site planners can limit long-term maintenance costs and, more important, reduce the risks to life and property from natural hazards. The careful analysis of sites—and the site’s context—can lead to better development proposals and, ultimately, to higher-quality built environments. Qualified site planners and designers are vital to this process.

  • The built environment embraces a wide range of concepts, from the design and integrity of housing, to land-use and urban planning. A high quality environment is essential for children to achieve optimal health and development. Building and land-use policies, including the quality and design of a child’s physical environment, can cause or prevent illness, disability and injury, and degrade or preserve natural resources.

  • This book discusses an emerging approach to architecture in which building performance is a guiding design principle. This architecture places broadly defined performance above, or on a par with, form-making; it utilizes digital technologies of quantitative and qualitative performance-based simulation to offer a comprehensive new approach to the design of the built environment.

  • These related changes have locked the global economy and global ecology together in new ways. We have in the past been concerned about the impacts of economic growth upon the environment. We are now forced to concern ourselves with the impacts of ecological stress - degradation of soils, water regimes, atmosphere, and forests upon our economic prospects. We have in the more recent past been forced to face up to a sharp increase in economic interdependence among nations. We are now forced to accustom ourselves to an accelerating ecological interdependence among nations.

  • There has been a growing realization in national governments and multilateral institutions that it is impossible to separate economic development issues from environment issues; many forms of development erode the environmental resources upon which they must be based, and environmental degradation can undermine economic development. Poverty is a major cause and effect of global environmental problems. It is therefore futile to attempt to deal with environmental problems without a broader perspective that encompasses the factors underlying world poverty and international inequality....

  • By far the most important for the present publication, in terms of the quantity mined and potential impact on the environment, are phosphate and potash. The production of phosphorous and potassium min- eral fertilizers relies essentially on the mining of mineral concentrations, in the form of ore deposits from the earth's crust. Nitrogen mineral fertilizers, on the other hand, are almost entirely based on ammonia manufactured from the abundant source of atmos- pheric nitrogen, water and energy.

  • Building engineering physics, along with other aspects of building science, is taught as a minor part of a limited number of engineering degree courses in the United Kingdom. In other parts of the world building science is afforded greater significance in both education and industry. It is apparent that countries such as the Netherlands, with well established university teaching and research in building sciences, lead the UK in terms of delivering low carbon buildings.

  • In the past 12 years, we have written a book on every version of Exchange since its inception built on at least two years of early adopter beta experience. This book, Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Unleashed, is the latest of our efforts. However, unlike the past two major releases of Exchange (2000 and 2003), Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, although very similar, had enough differences that it required complete rethinking of the way we wrote this book.
