This report, entitled "Climate change and local, regional and devolved government", (HCP 225, session 2007-08, ISBN 9780215522122) sets out 22 conclusions and recommendations, including: that Central Government has a duty to co-ordinate how different spheres of government interact and integrate in regard of action on climate change; overcoming barriers to progress on climate change is essential and the Government must look at incentives and encouragements it can offer to local, regional and devolved government; all local authorities should be obliged to include climate change indicators in their Local Area Agreements and further, the investrment and development plans for local authorities should consider the need to reduce emissions and adapt to climate change; that local authorities, regional and devolved governments need to be aware of other targets, including biodiversity and energy efficiency; that the Government needs to consider what part carbon impact assessments will play in local, regional and devolved governments and how they can become a central role in decision and policy making.

The War of the Worlds

From H. G. Wells to Orson Welles, Jeff Wayne, Steven Spielberg and Beyond

First published in 1897, H.G. Wells's alien invasion narrative The War of the Worlds was a landmark work of science fiction and one that continues to be adapted and referenced in the 21st century. Chronicling the novel's contexts, its origins and its many multi-media adaptations, this book is a complete biography of the life ? and the afterlives ? of The War of the Worlds. Exploring the original text's compelling sense of place and vivid recreation of Wells's Woking home and the concerns of fin-de-siécle Britain, the book goes on to chart the novel's immediate international impact. Starting with the initial serialisations in US newspapers, Peter Beck goes on to examine Orson Welles's legendary 1938 radio adaptation, TV and film adaptations from George Pal to Steven Spielberg, Jeff Wayne's rock opera and the numerous other works that have taken their inspiration from Wells's original. Drawing on new archival research, this is a comprehensive account of the continuing impact of The War of the Worlds.

A Communion of Subjects

Animals in Religion, Science, and Ethics

Author: Paul Waldau,Kimberley Christine Patton

A Communion of Subjects is the first comparative and interdisciplinary study of the conceptualization of animals in world religions. Scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including Thomas Berry (cultural history), Wendy Doniger (study of myth), Elizabeth Lawrence (veterinary medicine, ritual studies), Marc Bekoff (cognitive ethology), Marc Hauser (behavioral science), Steven Wise (animals and law), Peter Singer (animals and ethics), and Jane Goodall (primatology) consider how major religious traditions have incorporated animals into their belief systems, myths, rituals, and art. Their findings offer profound insights into humans' relationships with animals and a deeper understanding of the social and ecological web in which we all live. Contributors examine Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Daoism, Confucianism, African religions, traditions from ancient Egypt and early China, and Native American, indigenous Tibetan, and Australian Aboriginal traditions, among others. They explore issues such as animal consciousness, suffering, sacrifice, and stewardship in innovative methodological ways. They also address contemporary challenges relating to law, biotechnology, social justice, and the environment. By grappling with the nature and ideological features of various religious views, the contributors cast religious teachings and practices in a new light. They reveal how we either intentionally or inadvertently marginalize "others," whether they are human or otherwise, reflecting on the ways in which we assign value to living beings. Though it is an ancient concern, the topic of "Religion and Animals" has yet to be systematically studied by modern scholars. This groundbreaking collection takes the first steps toward a meaningful analysis.

Inside Apple

Das Erfolgsgeheimnis des wertvollsten, innovativsten und verschwiegensten Unternehmensder Welt

Author: Adam Lashinsky

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 3527671420

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 233

View: 1979

Apple ist seit dem 20. August 2012 das wertvollste Unternehmen der Welt. "Inside Apple" enthüllt das geheime System, die Taktiken und die Führungsstrategien, die Steve Jobs und seinem Unternehmen erlaubten, ein Erfolgsprodukt nach dem anderen zu produzieren und eine kultähnliche Anhängerschaft für seine Produkte zu erwecken. In diesem Referenzwerk zur Unternehmensführung stellt Adam Lashinsky dem Leser Konzepte wie das des "DRI" (Apples Praxis, jeder Aufgabe einen "Directly Responsible Individual", also einen direkt und unmittelbar Verantwortlichen zuzuweisen) und das der Top 100 (ein jährlich wiederkehrendes Ritual, bei dem 100 aufstrebende Führungskräfte für ein geheimes, vollständig abgeschirmtes Treffen mit Unternehmensgründer Steve Jobs ausgewählt und auf Herz und Nieren überprüft werden) vor. Basierend auf zahllosen Interviews bietet das Buch exklusiv neue Informationen darüber, wie Apple Innovationen schafft, mit Lieferanten umgeht und den Übergang in die Post-Jobs-Ära handhabt. Adam Lashinsky kennt Apple durch und durch: Bereits 2008 sagte er in einer Titelstory ("The Genius Behind Steve: Could Operations Whiz Tim Cook Run The Company Someday?") für das Magazin Fortune voraus, dass der damals noch unbekannte Tim Cook eventuell Steve Jobs als CEO nachfolgen würde. Obwohl "Inside Apple" vordergründig ein tiefer Einblick in ein einzigartiges Unternehmen (und in sein Ökosystem aus Lieferanten, Investoren, Angestellten und Wettbewerbern) ist, sind die Lehren über Steve Jobs, Unternehmensführung, Produktdesign und Marketing allgemeingültig. Sie sollten von jedem gelesen werden, der einen Teil der Apple-Magie in sein Unternehmen, seine Karriere oder sein kreatives Bestreben bringen möchte.
