Natural disasters destroy more property and kill more people with each
passing year. Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis,
floods, landslides, fires and other natural events are becoming more
frequent and their consequences more devastating. Del Moral and
Walker provide a comprehensive summary of the diverse ways in which
natural disasters disrupt humanity and how humans cope. Burgeoning
human numbers, shrinking resources and intensification of the
consequences of natural disasters have produced a crisis of unparalleled
IFA (“Institutions for Floods in Asia”) project focuses on institutional dimension of river floods risk reduction in the Asian countries that along with structural approaches constitutes the core in human responses to floods. IFA aggregates and compares results of country-based research in order to further explore the problem How to strengthen capacities and performance of institutions to reduce flood risks. Rich evidence for testing IFA approaches is provided from recent case-studies of big river floods in Bangladesh, Burma/Myanmar, Japan, Russia,......
We come across an era of strong and even more unusual individual claims, while the solution to often conflicting demands becomes increasingly elusive and parochial. One of the most intriguing philosophical questions is how to link human responsibility to those consequences of action which no one can fully foresee but, nevertheless, which no one can afford to neglect. Many biotechnological challenges are of this nature.
A Quick Guide to Human Resource Testing is a quick reference guide for human resource (HR) practitioners who use or plan to use assessment instruments in any context. It includes explanations, tips, case studies and suggestions to help practitioners get the most out of their HR testing. Those in charge of recruiting and selecting new staff face a decision-making process that needs to be responsible in its implementation and to produce a positive and wide-ranging outcome.
The European economy is in the midst of the deepest recession since the 1930s, with real GDP projected
to shrink by some 4% in 2009, the sharpest contraction in the history of the European Union. Although
signs of improvement have appeared recently, recovery remains uncertain and fragile. The EU’s response
to the downturn has been swift and decisive. Aside from intervention to stabilise, restore and reform the
banking sector, the European Economic Recovery Plan (EERP) was launched in December 2008.
A global research community of scientists is teasing out the biochemical mechanisms that regulate normal cellular physiology in a variety of organisms. Much of current research aims to understand the network of molecular reactions that regulate cellular homeostasis, and to learn what allows cells to sense stress and activate appropriate biochemical responses.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a field that impacts on all aspects of human
existence. Professions and professionals in both advanced and emerging economies
have a lot to consider in the quest to ensure that their activities do not adversely
affect society or if they do; how they can best reduce the adverse impact should be
of paramount importance to them in our world today.
Religions have too often been used to justify the violation of human
rights, in part through the hierarchical and selective use of role ethics
and the postponement of temporal justice to divine judgment or future
karmic consequences. Yet the world religions have also provided a constant
voice of critique against the violation of human rights by calling for equality,
and universal compassion and love, calls which reach far beyond the
mere protection of human rights.
The discourses and institutions of human rights are contemporary devices for
bringing morality to bear on the harsh realities of political, economic and social life.
These attempts to render the conditions of human existence more tolerable and more
dignified tend to focus mainly on the role of domestic and international law and the
conduct of states and the international institutions that represent them.
We planned the first edition of this book on a ‘need to know’
basis, its primary object being to provide students and medical
and dental practitioners with the knowledge essential for an
informed approach to the prevention and treatment of viral
infections. We aimed also at supplying just enough basic virology
to underpin the more practical aspects—clinical manifestations,
epidemiology, pathogenesis, immune responses, and so
forth. And not least, we tried our best to make the text as readable
as is possible, given the highly technical nature of some of
The manipulation of human behavior provides The physiological state of the interrogation subject as it, the effects of reduced environmental stimulation on human behavior, the use of drugs in interrogation, physiological responses as a means of evaluating information RC, the potential uses of hypnosis in interrogation, the experimental investigation of interpersonal influence.
This book is an attempt to situate archaeology within the domain of contemporary
human affairs, and to forge a new methodology for coping with environmental
problems from an archaeological perspective. From this perspective, the papers
included in this volume highlight the aspects of the historical relationships
between people and climatic change that are potentially useful in coping with
current climatic fluctuations.

Article 1. Promulgate the National Strategic Framework on Communications for Avian
and Human Influenza Control and Prevention, in 2008 – 2010 together with this Decision.
Article 2. Implementation
The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as the standing body for the National
Steering Committee on Avian Influenza is responsible for arranging implementation of
the Strategic Framework with the following tasks:
As our understanding of human genetics has increased at an explosive rate
over the last half century, genetic knowledge has become more relevant to
us and to those we love. In the 1990s and early 2000s, scientists mapped the
human genome and began to understand the ways in which a variety of different
genes function in human beings. Their initial goal was to gain information
and insight into how the genes we are born with might affect our
lives and the lives of our children.
The globalization of human rights implies, too, the globalization of human responsibilities.
For individual human rights holders, there is the responsibility to act in ways that show
appropriate respect for the rights of fellow humans wherever they are located in the
global community of rights.

European national policy-makers broadly agree on the core objectives that their
health care systems should pursue. The list is strikingly straightforward: universal
access for all citizens, effective care for better health outcomes, efficient use of
resources, high-quality services and responsiveness to patient concerns. It is a
formula that resonates across the political spectrum and which, in various,
sometimes inventive, configurations, has played a role in most recent European
national election campaigns...
Human cloning has been one of the most emotive and
divisive issues to face UN negotiators and the international
community in recent years. This report examines how,
that despite a widespread consensus amongst nations
that it is desirable to ban reproductive cloning, efforts to
negotiate an international convention ground to a halt
due to fundamental divisions regarding so-called research
or therapeutic cloning. Firm positions on both sides of the
debate led to the compromise position of a non-binding
UN Declaration on Cloning, (A/RES/59/280).
