Born amidst the furious social changes of the mid-1960s, postmodern architecture redefined the purposes of a prestigious profession. In this work, Magali Sarfatti Larson gives a bold and comprehensive account of the social, economic, and ideological shifts that cracked the modernist dogma and reintroduced historical allusion, diversity, and ornament into architectural discourse and practice.

The Texas Women’s Health Program (WHP) provides family planning and preventive

The legislation applies to all industrial facilities that emit
100,000 tonnes or more of GHG a year, which accounts for
70 per cent of the province’s emissions. These facilities are
required to reduce their emissions by 12 per cent, as of the
end of 2007.
Facilities that fail to meet this target have the option of
buying Alberta-based carbon offsets, or paying into the
Climate Change and Emissions Management Fund. The
fund takes $15 for every tonne over reduction targets and
directs it to strategic projects or technology aimed at
reducing GHG emissions in the province. ...

Although in some respects more technical in their subjects and style than Darwin's "Journal," the books here reprinted will never lose their value and interest for the originality of the observations they contain. Many parts of them are admirably adapted for giving an insight into problems regarding the structure and changes of the earth's surface, and in fact they form a charming introduction to physical geology and physiography in their application to special domains.
A new U.S. grand strategy has been emerging, one that requires not only resources but patience and commitment: the promotion of democracy and freedom abroad. The U.S. armed forces will continue to be among the myriad contributors necessary to achieve this goal. In the face of increasing complexity, changing
government and defense community should address these challenges. There was widespread agreement that the set of challenges the United States faces, coupled with the varied demands on the military forces, will require significant changes in how the Department of Defense trains, equips, and
A lot of focus has been put on lifestyle changes since the
last prevention policy paper was published. Key objectives
have been defined with ambitious targets to reduce
smoking, the harmful use of alcohol, overweight, diabetes
and depression. There is, of course, a reason for this: there
is a close relationship between today’s major chronic
diseases and people’s behaviour. The focus on lifestyle and
health promotion is therefore an obvious consequence of
disease prevention. But lifestyle changes are not easy to

opportunities—and great turmoil. Not since the Industrial
Revolution have the stakes of dealing with change

The One Minute Manager is an easily read story which quickly shows you three very practical management techniques. As the story unfolds, you will discover several studies in medicine and the behavioral sciences which help you to understand why these apparently simple methods work so well with so many people. By the book’s end you will also know how to apply them to your own situation. The book is brief, the language is simple, and best of all ... it works! That’s why The One Minute Manager has become America’s national sensation, featured in People magazine, and on The Today...
Women have made enormous strides in recent decades, as they entered
and rose through the ranks of corporations to attain leadership positions.
Despite these gains, however, and despite the number of women in business
schools, and in lower and middle management positions, the status of
women at the top of corporate America has not increased as expected.
According to the 2006 Census released by Catalyst, a research and advisory
organization that conducts research on women’s career advancement, in
2006 women held just 15.

The nucleocapsid complex is surrounded
by a protein shell called capsid to form the viral core. A layer of matrix protein, which is
formed outside the capsid, interacts with the envelope (env) which consists of lipid
envelope derived from the host cell and viral envelope glycoproteins. Viral glycoproteins
are made of two units: a transmembrane portion, which attaches the protein into the lipid
bilayer, and a surface portion, which binds to the cellular receptor.
Impoverishing the local resource base can impoverish wider areas: deforestation by
highland farmers causes flooding on lowland farms; factory pollution robs local fishermen of
their catch. Such grim local cycles now operate nationally and regionally. Dryland degradation
sends environmental refugees in their millions across national borders. Deforestation in Latin
America and Asia is causing more floods, and more destructive floods, in downhill,
downstream nations. Acid precipitation and nuclear fallout have spread across the borders of
A fundamental element of sustainable development is environmental sustainability.
Hence, this series was created in 2007 to cover current and emerging issues
in order to promote debate and broaden the understanding of environmental
challenges as integral to achieving equitable and sustained economic growth. The
series will draw on analysis and practical experience from across the World Bank
and from client countries.
Advertising can be expensive, but
there are plenty of budget-conscious options, too.
No matter what you’re spending, your approach
should be strategic—don’t squander opportunities to
talk with your markets. n Start with your
markets/needs list developed in “Get Prepared: Step
2.” What are the media reaching these markets?
Radio stations, newspapers, newsletters, etc.
Contact them to get their ad rates and schedules.
Advertising salespeople can help you with good
editorial matches (for example, perhaps there’s a

After researching literature on addiction and film,
I chose the films for the study and viewed each one many
times, specifically looking for socioeconomic representations
of characters, treatment of different races, sexes, and sexual
preferences, methods of production as they relate to addicted
characters and drug usage, and the depiction of treatment/
self-help groups. I then outlined the narrative of each film
and compared the uses and meanings brought to addicts,
addiction, and substances. I found that these movies construct
a fairly unified image of treatment.
