Simon Communities in Ireland Research Paper

… With the establishment of the Catholic Worker Movement, Houses of Hospitality sprang throughout many cities in America. These establishments provided people with food, clothing, a roof over their head, and above everything else, a sense of union and companionship. The Houses of Hospitality were in fact part of a larger project on behalf of the Catholic Worker Movement that thrived on combating social injustice. Dorothy Day said about the project that ?it just came about. It just happened. (as quoted in Troester 3) And in the next years, over a hundred houses will happen to welcome homeless people in Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, South Bend, Chicago, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and others (Troester 4). It is important to understand that homeless people were as well…. [read more]

Filling empties will help bring life to each neighborhood. But the current situation is that sales prices exceed replacement costs so owners are stuck. They cannot sell the buildings and they also cannot rent or lease them out. As can be seen in the chart, this retail glut is scheduled to grow over the next few years.

This leads to foreclosure and additional open commercial space as owners are wiped out and the…. [read more]


Health Care Services for the Homeless Research Paper

… Health Care Services for the Homeless

An Analysis of Health Care for the Homeless, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Today, one of the most significant problems facing underserved populations is an inability to obtain health care services in the marketplace. In fact, there is a strong relationship between homelessness and health; homeless people typically experience higher rates of physical illnesses than the general public, and in cases where access is severely limited, people will tend to use fewer health services and will typically experience worse health outcomes (Helvie & Kunstmann, 1999). Furthermore, the constraints to access of medically underserved and vulnerable populations is reflected in their higher mortality rates and increased rates of cancer, heart disease, strokes, and dental disease (Barrett, Epstein, Gaston & Johnson, 1998). Community health…. [read more]


Future House, to Be Built Term Paper

… Internal moldings will be made of the same dark wood as the entrance door, and floorboards and windowsills will be of the same material.

Acoustics are also important in a house. The prevalence of stone and large spaces in the house may create an area with a lot of echo and noise. Carpets will help to reduce this noise, and a small Gothic-style fountain of a gargoyle in the foyer will create white noise.

While this house is built in the Gothic Revival style, its inhabitants will be technologically adept. Therefore, the house must incorporate many features necessary to business in today's world, including "smart house" technology. The house will be completely wired to allow for computer networking. This will include wiring to the kitchen,…. [read more]


Determinant of Health Term Paper

… Determinant of Health of Income and Social Status

Definition of Determinants of Health

Since the 1990's, a very important body of research (Wilkinson and Marmot, 2001) has emerged about the determinants of health. Evidence has been systematically collected about how path- ways through societal, political, environmental and economic determinants become translated into illness and disease, and how social conditions and settings in which people live their lives not only influence how they behave, but also have a direct impact on their health. The social determinants approach seeks to address the social dimensions of health and illness that arise at the level of populations. Thus it is a population health approach, concerned with improving the health of whole populations or specific sub-groups of the population. It…. [read more]

Memoir of a Public Information Term Paper

… Our news conferences are now once a day, around 4 p.m. -- more of day's roundup of what has occurred in the aftermath of this earthquake. We have been able to meet the demands of the media in providing information and spokespeople, ranging from local authorities, fire fighters, and Federal emergency response managers, for live one-on-one interviews. The only major problem that has been reported and will be addressed months from now during evaluations was the immediate response of firefighters coming up from cities and counties not seriously harmed by the earthquake. Our compact with other communities through the Southland is to offer assistance as disaster strikes, but we suddenly had too many people arrive at the same time shortly after the disaster. If we….

How Urban Sprawl Destroys the Environment Term Paper

… Environmental Science: Urban Sprawl

Urban Sprawl: "the spreading of urban developments (as houses and shopping centers) on undeveloped land near a city..." Merriam-Webster Online

Rapid urban growth has had a negative affect on the environment - and when the environment is affected in a negative way, people, too, suffer the consequences. But before this paper covers the issue of specific problems associated with urban sprawl, a little history is appropriate, in terms of how our once beautiful, lush green planet has been altered by the expansion of the human race, and the carelessness of that expansion.

Before humans began to build houses, roads, villages and cities, and in fact before there very few humans at all, trees covered "two-fifths (40%) of the land" on the…. [read more]


Cause and Effect of Deforestation Research Paper

… ¶ … Deforestation

On a very basic level, the cause of deforestation seems simple: deforestation is caused the cutting-down of trees. But why are humans as a species so careless about the precious natural resource of trees? This was not always the case. According to the World Wide Forest Report, during the days of the Roman Empire ninety percent of continental Europe could be classified as forest land. "Today 500,000 hectors [of forest] vanish in a single week" (Rochen & Stock 2010). "Originally, almost half of the United States, three-quarters of Canada, almost all of Europe, the plains of the Levant, and much of the rest of the world were forested. The forests have been mostly removed for fuel, building materials and to clear land…. [read more]


Convert it Into "Green Town Term Paper

… Mental Health Counseling

Many commentators and psychologists believe that victims of any disaster face an uphill battle against depression and post-traumatic stress. The reason for depression could be shock and loss of personal or possession. The survivors of disasters, such as the Greensburg tornado would require mental health counseling (Blaikie et al. 1994)

The respondents of the study by Paul, Che, Stimers and Dutt (2009) stated that not a large number of the survivors needed mental health counseling. However, they conceded that mostly people older than sixty years old benefited from counseling. They also stated that the temporary shelters provided by the authorities had adequate resources to provide counseling to all those who needed it. Moreover, the individuals who received counseling expressed satisfactory perspectives regarding…. [read more]

This Government in Darcy is really committed to making sure that everything stays green. How the company deals with their waste is vital for a range of broader distresses for example material security, climate change energy, and environmental protection. Even though good development has been happening over the last decade to decrease the capacity of waste sent to landfill and upsurge recycling, the company decides that it wants to go much further and faster. If that happens they will experience the benefits not simply in a better natural environment and condensed influences on change of the climate, nonetheless also in…. [read more]


Renewable Energy and Interdependencies: Six Research Paper

… One of the harsh realities of introducing one cost- or energy-saving initiative is that it will inevitably affect other constituent elements in a given system and this is certainly the case with the interdependencies that are involved in implementing and applying the initiatives envisioned for the Coed Darcy project. In this regard, the Council on Tall buildings and Urban Habitat (2001) cites the "question of how to reduce the large amount of energy that is embodied in the building materials themselves, the services contributing to their making, and the energy implications of the very form and design of neighborhoods and cities" (p. 540). This inextricable interrelationship between the initiatives envisioned for the six council buildings and the potential for their influencing each other is discussed…. [read more]

It has often been recalled throughout history that it is said that the Phoenix will rise from the ashes if the saying has only predicted the Phoenix rising from the sands of the Desert then surely it would be proclaimed that the Phoenix was indeed the nation of the Arab Emirates. Dubai was a small fishing village in the 18th century and home to the Bani Yaw tribe however, history places civilization in this area during the first millennium BC. The museum in Dubai contains a collection that was excavated from Al-Quasais and another excavation yielded a caravan station that was from the sixth century AD in the expatriate…. [read more]

Nurse-Care Analysis of Sheepshead Bay Essay

… Differences in cultural idioms used to express comfort or discomfort also play a part as well as somatic presentation.

Sandy and Elliott's (1996) review of the literature found that previous studies have been inconsistent in their adjustment and decision of causality of these factors. It was undecided whether it was language (i.e. insufficient proficiency in English) or culture of origin, or the acculturation scale itself that was used that determined results and/or interpretation of result, but their own case study and survey revealed that language skills had an undeniable effect on seeking and receipt of health care. Depression, therefore, often seems to be linked to deficiency in language skills. Depression is particularly prominent amongst females who also have a tough time straddling work, looking after….

Disrupting America's Economic System Term Paper

… The U.S. Treasury, led by Andrew Shaw, subsidized these gold flows by offering to temporarily place public deposits in banks if they imported gold from abroad.

The policy lowered the gold import point by offsetting the interest lost while gold was in transit. Goodhart [1969], however, notes that the gold import point was often low enough to have justified specie inflows without the subsidy. In the fixed exchange rate world of 1906, such large gold outflows were a significant threat to a country's ability to maintain the par value of its currency, which, for the pound sterling, was $4.867.

Faced with its lowest ratio of reserves to deposits since the 1893 crisis, the Bank of England nearly doubled its discount rate, from 3 1/2% on…. [read more]


Architecture Farnsworth House Mies Van Term Paper

… (See Robert Silman's sidebar) This was the time when a surprise crack was noticed which formed the plastic hinge over a cantilever beam exactly on the face of pier (Feldman, 2002)

The evaluation of design was done by pre-structured models. It is necessary to keep on refining the models for which external post-tensioning is performed in order to determine the effects of forces applied on the current structure along with the newly revealed "hinge." The end product of this culmination process is the final design of structures (Feldman, 2002).

The design of the structure becomes more complicated due to the addition of hinge discovered. However, an external post-tensioning system is used but it is necessary that the post-tensioning force applied also fulfils the requirements of…. [read more]

… Improving Carbon Management to Mitigate Climate Change

Introduction of global climate change situation

The aim of this green paper is to improve carbon management, helping the transition towards a low- carbon economy in the UK. Although this green paper represents a tentative government report of a proposal without any commitment to action, it is the first step in changing the law to improve carbon management to mitigate climate change. The growing body of evidence concerning the reality of global climate change demands action today (Lindsay 2005; Lynas 2004). The implications of global climate change, even in the relative near-term, are profound. In this regard, Jenkins emphasizes that, "Many people are intensely interested in predicting the likely consequences of global climate change during the next 50…. [read more]

… Irrational Exuberance: The Economic Crisis of 2007-2009

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, what will no doubt become known as first Great Recession of the 21st century began in 2007. "The NBER said that the deterioration in the labor market throughout 2008 was one key reason why it decided to state that the recession began [in 2007]…the NBER also looks at real personal income, industrial production as well as wholesale and retail sales. All those measures reached a peak between November 2007 and June 2008, the NBER said. In addition, the NBER also considers the gross domestic product, which is the reading most typically associated with a recession" (Isidore 2008). However, while the official start of the recession may be dated to 2007,…. [read more]

(nd) This work relates that a "growing body of literature...provides evidence to a link between school building adequacy and students achievement. One examined link between school facilities and student achievement may be school climate. School climate may be a mediating variable, explaining, at least in part, the deleterious impact that poor school facilities has on learning."

Urban Sprawl Term Paper

… There are also problems from the runoff from fertilizer on people's lawns, and the various pesticides that they also use to treat their lawns, gardens, and homes (Reid, 1996). All of these things run into the rivers, bays, and lakes, and some of them also get into the drinking water as well. The wildlife that use the waterways for their drinking and bathing water, and the fish and other animals that call it home are suffering from the effects of urban sprawl, too. Much of the habitat for this wildlife has been eliminated, and even in places where this has not happened there is less and less habitat every day, and the quality of it is not what it once was (Gordon & Richardson, 1998).….

Guantanamo Bay Term Paper

… An additional 16 voted for the Cuban independence measure and abstained from the Platt Amendment (Mellen, 2004). These votes from the hypocritical members of the Senate would have defeated the Platt Amendment had they not changed their position so drastically (Mellen, 2004).

The U.S. intent to use the Platt amendment as the means to legitimize control over Cuba was not a hidden agenda (Mellen, 2004). Congressman Corliss of Michigan stated: "I am construed to vote for the amendment with reference to the island of Cuba, because I believe that the adoption thereof will insure the continuance of our sovereignty. I am unalterably opposed to the surrender of the sovereignty of the United States over the island of Cuba" (Mellen, 2004). Congressman C.E. Littlefield of Maine…. [read more]
