  • Urban design is a diffuse and abstract term. It means different things to different people. For those not directly involved in its practice or aware of its effects on their daily lives, it may not mean much, if anything at all. I first heard the term in architecture school, but I didn’t really think much about what it might mean until my schoolmate Jonathan Barnett started using it to describe his aspiration to put together with some of his colleagues a design capability in the New York City government.

  • In the Christian tradition, the doctrine of ‘just war’ has evolved throughout the last 1,700 years, originating with St. Augustine and later significantly shaped by St Thomas Aquinas, both of whom developed ideas of the Greek philosopher Aristotle and the Roman philosopher Cicero. 15 Saint Augustine (354-430) served as Bishop of Hippo for 34 years. His idea of just war has two foundations. The first, owing much to the Eastern religious traditions, is that in all things a person should not act out of selfish considerations.

  • A descriptive analysis by frequency counting, central trends measures and dispersion was made for those continuous type variables, as some of the variables inherent to laborers, and environmental and biological measurements. Continuous variables were transformed to normalize them. We also explored possible relationships between some variables and they were crossed by constructing contingency tables. We used the Student's t tests and chi square tests for the comparison of quantitative and categorical variables.

  • Credit scores, as a quantitative shorthand for credit histories, increase the potential for customized pricing of credit based on the risk an individual poses. Some argue that charging more to consumers defined as higher risk would remove some of the cost of risk carried by the general consumer population, and would allow for price reductions among consumers who pose less risk.

  • In a broad sense, land grabbing is not a new phenomenon. It has been a recurrent pattern in human history. Neverthe- less, over the last few years, a new type of land grabbing has arisen, and these shifts in land acquisition trends have caught the attention of the international community. One of the re- cent changes is that not only agribusiness in its narrow sense (producing sector) has an increased interest in land, but also transnational corporations upstream and downstream the value chain.

  • The definition of car-sharing presented here and the quality standards and requirements discussed can provide guidelines both for the establishment of car-sharing administered by oneself and for the purchase of car-sharing services. To ensure that the car-sharing being established is effective, it is important to bear in mind what distinguishes such a scheme from traditional car-rental services, namely the ready access to vehicles, in terms of where these are placed and how keys are managed, and of its being possible to book cars for short periods of time.

  • The rise and valuing of human reason is a driving and organizing force in the story of Western philosophy and civilization. It would be a mistake, however, to believe that the story of Western culture is only about the importance of reason and control. Even as the Tradition of reason was given form in the Greek idea of logos, a parallel tradition—one that would be received less favorably in the millennia to follow—was emerg- ing. An early example is ...

  • The Readymade did not and was not able to address itself to depiction; its concern is with the object, and so if we were to classify it within the canonical forms it would be sculpture. But no-one who has thought about it accepts that a Readymade is sculpture. Rather it is an object that transcends the traditional classifications and stands as a model for art as a whole, art as a historical phenomenon, a logic, and an institution. As Thierry de Duve has so well demonstrated, this object designates itself as the abstraction ‘art as such’, the thing that can...

  • Critics sometimes point out that public transit requires more public subsidy per passenger-mile than automobile travel, but this comparison is unfair (“Transit Evaluation,” VTPI 2009). About half of transit subsidies are intended to provide basic mobility (service at times and locations with low demand, and special services for people with disabilities), which requires large subsidy per passenger-mile. Transit operates on major urban corridors where any form of transport is costly to provide.

  • Women's involvement in the formal sector has mainly been urban-based, as civil servants in the health and education sectors, where they had a sizeable presence before the conflict. This was severely disrupted by the strong restrictions on female employment during the Taliban period. Currently, close to one-third of all teachers are female, while an estimated 40% of all basic health facilities lack female staff, a clear constraint to delivering basic services (health, in particular) to women.

  • The milk production system in Pakistan is characterized by large numbers of small, geographically dispersed dairy producers who have marketable surpluses of milk but face diseconomies of scale in marketing it to demand centers in distant urban areas. The traditional middlemen who procure milk from rural areas close to the cities offer at best modest returns to the farmers. In the past couple of decades, two institutional developments have taken place in the milk processing sector.

  • In 1978, China had only one bank. This acted both as the central bank and the commercial bank, but today there are six commercial banks, a few regional banks, and urban and rural credit co-operations, as well as the central bank. The further reform in China's financial system is still in progress. Before 1978, there were no advertisements in China, but today advertisements are part of the daily life of China's masses.

  • The crisis that now envelops health systems with such resounding impact on the poor must also be understood in historical context. Most countries in Asia and Africa found themselves at independence confronting the legacy of a colonial health system that had focused almost exclusively on urban, tertiary hospitals. Traditional providers of different kinds, unconnected to the state, were the major sources of health care outside the family.

  • There can be little doubt that organized disaster behaviors are an inherent trait among people throughout the world and throughout history. In the past, organized disaster behaviors were primarily in reaction to life-threatening events arising in the natural environment. These reactions reflected our adaptive ability in an often chaotic natural world to initiate organized social survival skills. They have stood us in good stead for millennia. Today, we face disasters of our own making.
