Climate Change, Public Health, and the Law (Hardcover): Michael Burger, Justin Gundlach Climate Change, Public Health, and the Law (Hardcover)

R2,109 Discovery Miles 21 090 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Climate Change, Public Health, and the Law provides the first comprehensive explication of the dynamic interactions between climate change, public health law, and environmental law, both in the United States and internationally. Responding to climate change and achieving public health protections each require the coordination of the decisions and behavior of large numbers of people. However, they also involve interventions that risk compromising individual rights. The challenges involved in coordinating large-scale responses to public health threats and protecting against the invasion of rights, makes the law indispensable to both of these agendas. Written for the benefit of public health and environmental law professionals and policymakers in the United States and in the international public health sector, this volume focuses on the legal components of pursuing public health goals in the midst of a changing climate. It will help facilitate efforts to develop, improve, and carry out policy responses at the international, federal, state, and local levels.

Box set featuring nine action movies. In 'Skinheads' (1989) a group of Los Angeles neo-nazis are forced to move to North California when one of them shoots a black man. When they arrive in the small town they continue on their path of hatred, harrassment and destruction until they come across two resilient college kids determined to stop the skinheads' reign of violence. When a Hollywood film crew travel to shoot on an isolated desert location they are attacked by CIA-backed mercenaries. At first the film people fight back using their special effects equipment, but as the carnage mounts they sustain heavy losses, and soon the director's daughter is the only one still alive. She then teams up with one of the embittered mercenaries to better her chances of surviving. 'Hiroshima' (1990) paints a dramatic account of the race to develop the atomic bomb, the ethics and politics behind it, and the events which led to its use at the end of World War 2. In 'Emperor' (1988), Tony (Alex D'Andrea) is a Bronx street hustler, an old-fashioned, low-level operator who finds himself forced off his turf by vicious crime boss Falco (Anthony Gioia). Teaming up with an ex-con and sultry songstress, he learns a few things about the way of the world and makes an attempt to get back on the right side of the wrong side of the tracks - taking the fight back to Falco. In 'South Bronx' (1985), two young children are being brutally exploited as their foster home moonlights as the headquarters for one of the city's largest pornography rings. Amazingly, the two children escape to the streets, where they enlist the help of an undercover cop (Mario Van Peebles) and his partner to capture the porn king and his accomplices. In 'The Swap' (1969) Robert DeNiro plays Sammy Nicoletti, an adult film director who is murdered. His brother Vito (Anthony Charnota) vows to find the killer and avenge Sammy's death. When Vito is released from prison he begins his own investigation, encountering deceit and blackmail. The final days of Sammy's life unfold from a party on Long Island back to the big city. As Vito draws nearer to the truth, his own life hangs precariously in the balance. In 'Death Collector' (1975) it's 'all in the family' for a young, streetwise hood as he becomes a collector for the mob. He quickly rises, run by rung, up the ladder of the underworld in this violent crime saga. Blaxploitation legend Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson stars in 'Black Cobra' (1987). When fashion photographer Elys Trumbo (Eva Grimaldi) sees one of her neighbours being murdered by a member of the Black Cobras, a psychopathic motorcycle gang, she manages to catch the killer's face on film. The Cobras' leader comes after her, but luckily tough police sergeant Malone (Williamson) has been appointed to protect her. In 'Born To Win' (1971), George Segal stars as as an ex-hairdresser who struggles to support his expensive drug habit and to avoid arrest, turns 'narc', informing on his fellow junkies. Eventually Segal's sense of self-hatred threatens to overwhelm him. In 'Revenge' (1988), the gun-crazy right-wing terrorist group 'Strike Force' have set their sights on the deadly NK-2, which is a very large weapon indeed, and will do everything in their power to get hold of it. Vietnam vet Jason Shepherd (Roger Rodd) is approached with the job of tracking down these vicious killers and preventing them from doing any more damage. He accepts the job, but when the group gun down two of his most loyal friends, it suddenly becomes personal.

Michael Burger
R1,050 Discovery Miles 10 500 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book investigates how bishops deployed reward and punishment to control their administrative subordinates in thirteenth-century England. Bishops had few effective avenues available to them for disciplining their clerks, and rarely pursued them, preferring to secure their service and loyalty through rewards. The chief reward was the benefice, often granted for life. Episcopal administrators' security of tenure in these benefices, however, made them free agents, allowing them to transfer from diocese to diocese or even leave administration altogether; they did not constitute a standing episcopal civil service. This tenuous bureaucratic relationship made the personal relationship between bishop and clerk more important. Ultimately, many bishops communicated in terms of friendship with their administrators, who responded with expressions of devotion. Michael Burger's study brings together ecclesiastical, social, legal, and cultural history, producing the first synoptic study of thirteenth-century English diocesan administration in decades. His research provides an ecclesiastical counterpoint to numerous studies of bastard feudalism in secular contexts.

Liberalisierung und Globalisierung der Wirtschaft gehen Hand in Hand in unserer Zeit. Die Ara des nationalen Protektionismus in der ersten Halfte des J ahrhunderts war zugleich eine Ara wachsender Staatslenkung der Wirtschaft. GroBe Teile der Wirtschaft wurden verstaatlicht, die ubrige Wirtschaft zunehmenden Staatseingriffen ausgesetzt. 1m Sowjet-Block wurde die Wirtschaft zentral geplant und gelenkt. Die Ergebnisse dieser zunehmenden Staatstatigkeit entsprachen aber nicht den Erwartungen. In der Zeit seit dem zweiten Weltkrieg wurde deshalb zunehmend der marktwirtschaftliche Weg der Liberalisierung gegangen. Unter der tat kraftigen Fiihrung der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika entstand ein Sy stem des Freihande1s, das GATT, heute weiterentwickelt in die Welt Handels-Organisation (WTO). Ihm entsprach auch der Weg der europai schen Integration nach dem Prinzip des unverfalschten Wettbewerbs. Zu nehmend durfen nach diesen Spielregeln Auslander gegenuber Inlandem durch die jeweilige nationale Politik nicht mehr diskriminiert werden. Der Liberalisierung folgte ein phanomenaler Aufschwung des Welthan de1s. Dieser war seinerseits eine der Ursachen fiir die phanomenale Wohl standssteigerung in einem groBen Teil der Welt wahrend der zweiten Halfte des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts. Lander, die sich der Herausforde rung des intemationalen Wettbewerbs stellten, erfuhren besonders deut lich die Wohlstandseffekte einer flexiblen, schlanken, fortschrittsorien tierten Wettbewerbswirtschaft. Das deutsche "Wirtschaftswunder" unter VI Ludwig Erhard war ein erstes Beispiel fiir die Friichte eines Bemiihens um intemationale Wettbewerbsfahigkeit. Die OECD-Uinder insgesamt wuchsen durch dieses System eines freien Weltmarkts in eine Ara wach sender Prosperitat und Beschaftigung hinein."

Examination Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,5, University of Augsburg (Neue Englische Literaturen und Kulturwissenschaft), course: New English Literatures, language: English, abstract: The relationship between a mother and her children has been a prominent topic in literature ever since the genre of written fiction has become popular in the past. Mother figures from Jocasta in the ancient Greek tragedy King Oedipus and Gertrude in the Shakespeare classic Hamlet to Norma Bates in the 20th century suspense novel Psycho, to name but a few, have thrilled the audience as well as given critics a diverse subject to deal with. One reason for this ongoing fascination over centuries of literary production may lie in the extraordinarily complex relationship structure which can be developed between a mere dyad of people who happen to be mother and child. Yet, another reason for the perpetual re-invention of the issue can be found in its apparent comprehensibility: every human being has a biological mother and gets socialized by at least one focal person of reference which enables them to relate to the fictional stories easily. The unique quality of mothers in this process - as plain as it sounds - still is their ability to bear children, and by this act to establish an irreplaceable link to another human being. In the twentieth century, the socio-anthropological development has created a myriad of new possibilities and demographic changes that consequently were to find their way into literature and even have created new genres. Due to "significant shifts ...] in attitudes towards sexuality" (Allan 10), technological advance, and demographic changes, a whole new range of potential life-styles has evolved since the end of World War II. This involved deconstruction of a traditional middle-class myth, namely the breaking up of the nuclear family's near-monopoly position has ultimately led to an "increasing diversity occurring in family

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Augsburg (New English Literatures and Cultural Studies), course: Japanese Canadian and Japanese American Literature, language: English, abstract: A proverb says: "War does not determine who is right, just who is left." Left, that is naturally the veterans who managed not to get killed in battle and thus survived their mission. But left, that is also the ones who refused fighting in a war for their country, for whatever the reason. War and its aftermaths clearly do not take a decision on which of the two behaviors is right. It just leaves the involved people opposing each other contrarily - like left and right. In John Okada's novel No-No Boy, almost all of its characters are immediately confronted with the previously mentioned discord. Set in the Seattle of 1945, No-No Boy deals with the outer and inner conflicts of a young Japanese American, named Ichiro, who refused the draft by a government, which in his eyes deprived him of his identity as an American. The narration starts with its central character, Ichiro, who had just arrived at a bus station in Seattle and now sees himself confronted with a drastically changed and diverse Japanese American community. By telling the story from Ichiro's perspective, Okada thereby convinces his audience with an authentic depiction of "a quest for self-identity under extreme circumstances" (Huang, 2006: 152) in this fragmented and torn segment of society. Like his protagonist, Okada himself was an American-born son of Japanese immigrants, a so-called Nisei, and therefore also got evacuated from his hometown Seattle during the war years. When the Second World War broke out in 1939, Okada was in his mid-twenties and, unlike Ichiro in the novel, volunteered in the US Air Force, only to get discharged again directly after the war, in 1946 (see Huang, 2006: 152). Okada therefore can be rated a prime source f

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 2,0, University of Augsburg (Phil-Hist Fakultat), course: Teaching and Learning English Pronunciation, language: English, abstract: In the course of the last three decades a whole new prominence has been granted to the significance of foreign language (FL) learning. Due to the recent development of globalization, further emerging of multi-national enterprises and the coalescence of the European Union, this appears to be the logical consequence. Because of its nowadays widely accepted status as a lingua franca (Acar 2006) the learning and teaching of English as the most frequently spoken second language has gained importance - in Germany as well as in most industrialized countries speaking prevalently another first language (L1). In the recent past, since the end of the 19th century, changing trends have focused on different methods of language teaching, such as the ability to translate texts, correct use of grammar, or wide range of vocabulary. However, the teaching of English pronunciation finally has come back into the focus of interest since the second half of the 1980s due to the mentioned economic and social changes. Nowadays the ability to (net-) work internationally - and thus reach the "ultimate goal of communication with other speakers of the second language" (Brown 1994: 226) seems to be one of the highest goals of achievement of second language (L2) learning. During the time of almost one century of pronunciation teaching the attitude towards the issue has changed as well: as Chun (1991: 179) states in her article, the development started from a segmental and comparative sound repetition learning strategy, followed by a period of simply ignoring the topic completely from the 1960s to the early 1980s, leading finally to the up-to-date approach of teaching suprasegmentals, sentence intonation as well as other aspects of connected speech.

This two-volume reader documents the history of the West, from the second millennium BC through the twentieth century. Drawing from the well known and the less obvious, "Sources for the History of Western Civilization "reflects the ongoing reassessment of the canonical texts of Western history. The volumes include generous selections of literature, letters, laws, records, biographical writings, and illustrations that collectively create a rich portrait of the West's intellectual, social, political, and material development.

Unlike other readers, "Sources for the History of Western Civilization "uses complete texts whenever feasible, including those of a number of longer works, such as "The Symposium"; Einhard's "Life of Charlemagne "and "The Communist Manifesto." Women are well represented and Western Civilization is placed within world history by the inclusion of materials from the Near East, the Americas and Asia. The selections have been newly annotated and the translations have in many cases been modernized. The headnotes introducing each author's work leave room for readers to conduct their own analyses.

Please note that both Volume I and Volume II come with the 195-page book "Commentaries "for the instructor, which contains questions for students and advanced analyses on each reading's relationship to broader historical themes. The inclusion of "Commentaries "makes "Sources for the History of Western Civilization "ideal for large courses with sections taught by newer instructors.
