Resonances of the gravitational and magnet field of the celestial objects appear to be one of the most important factors that impact the development of the mankind. Economic crises are the consequence of the actions of people. And these crises begin more often when the Earth gets into the zone of the unfavorable affection of cosmic forces, so the aftermath of this fact is the alteration of quality of the economic active population.

Scientific Essay from the year 2018 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Demographics, Urban Management, Planning, , language: English, abstract: The main purpose of this essay is to examine the integrations between population variables and rural development in general and food security in particular. A critical review of literature and analysis of secondary data were carried out to understand these dynamic linkages. For all nations, people are the ultimate and the only recipient of development results. Even if the population variables are decisive planning inputs, however, they were ignored and treated as exogenous factors in the process of development planning during the 1950s and 1960s. And so, the resultant problems such as poverty, unemployment, inequality, and other social ills were pervasive and deep-rooted in rural areas of the developing countries. The major reason for this tragedy was belived to be the failure of development theories, policies, and approaches adopted during the 1950s and 60s. It was during the 1970s that the issue of integrating population factors into development planning attracted the attention of some international organizations (such as UN) and vigorously advocated since then. Therefore, so as to balance the pace of the population growth and rural development process, all development actors in Ethiopia should adopt holistic and synergetic approaches in such a way that enhance agricultural productivity and boost investment in rural social a...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, grade: 1,3, Free University of Berlin, language: English, abstract: 19 years after the promising democratic change in South Africa, the countrieschallenges and disparities remain ubiquitous. The huge majority of black South Africansstill lives in poverty, inequality has grown since the end of apartheid, service delivery isa permanent problem and democratic institutions are at least partly weak (Holden2012: 95).However, the new South Africa is not only signified by the aggravation of disparities.Over the last years, the emergence of a black middle class became steadily moretangible and is today a mostly undisputed phenomenon (Schrire 2005: 271; Southall2004: 539; Everatt 2011: 79). Some research has been conducted especially todetermine definition criteria and the size of a black middle class (Rivero et al. 2003;Southall 2004; Visagie, Posel 2011; Phadi, Ceruti 2011). The total middle class in SouthAfrica included 29% black South Africans in 1994, while until 2011, their share hadgrown to 49.8% of the total middle class (Holden 2012: 226-227). In absolute numbers,the black middle class made up five million people in 2011 (Visagie, Posel 2011: 8, 17)while South Africa had a total black population of around 41 million people (StatisticsSA 2011). Hence, approximately 8.2% of the black population group belongs to theblack middle class.Although there is research discussing the size...

Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - General, grade: 1,7, University of Applied Sciences Constanze, course: Economic and Social Sciences, 39 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Nowadays, it is unimaginable for people, at least in industrialized countries, not to have any access to energy sources. For the industry sector it is the basic precondition for its existence. For every little step within the production process, being the production of a good itself, the handling with raw materials or the transportation of the final product to the customer, plenty of energy is required. Private households also consume a lot of energy. But due to the global population growth, the available earth's resources have come under enormous pressure to meet the humans' energy needs (Pérez Latorre, 1999, p. 2). In the last 30 years the world's population has grown by more than 30% (www.weltbevoelkerung.de) and reached the present status of about 6.6 billion people (www.cia.gov). The total energy consumption has even increased more quickly comparing to the number of people on the planet. At the same time the population continues to grow and is estimated to reach about 9.1 billion people by the year 2050 (www.un.org). As the supply of oil, gas, coal and uranium, so called classic energy resources, is quite limited, the increase of population could result in the energy supply shortfall with considerable economic and social consequences. But t...

People, Population, and Policy In Indonesia

2589 руб.
Since its inception in 1945, the Republic of Indonesia has experienced a series of profound social changes. The spread of schooling, the transformation of the economy, and the consolidation of a unified state have transformed the lives of Indonesian citizens. It is seldom recognized, however, that the most fundamental changes have occurred in the family sphere. Marriages that used to be arranged by parents are now more likely to be determined by couples. Unions occur when the couples are much older. The adoption of birth control practices has reduced fertility from large families to a two-child norm in just over thirty years.These changes have molded the lives of individual women, described here through a series of personal case studies, and shaped the size and structure of the national population, as seen in the statistics produced by the government on a regular basis. The story that emerges gives strong hints about where the Indonesian population will be heading in the next fifty years with a growing proportion of aged citizens. Most importantly People, Population, and Policy in Indonesia shows the importance of collaborations between Indonesian leaders and their foreign colleagues in the efforts to reshape the Indonesian population and improve its social and economic welfare.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, Chapman University (Counterinsurgency Training Center), language: English, abstract: This is a 40 page essay on three major urban battles; Stalingrad, Hue and Mogadishu. It offers an analysis and lessons learned for the contemporary operating environment.Increasingly, urban operations will be a requirement of counterinsurgency. For instance, generally speaking the area known as the Middle East is comprised of 18 Nations; is 4.3 million square miles, had a population of 326 million in 2002. 57% of this population resides in urban areas. For comparison, 25% of the population was urban in 1960 and current projections indicate that by the year 2015 that 70% of the population will be urban. Increasingly, military operations and or counter-insurgency operations within urban areas means that operations will increasingly include a succession of urban operations that literally will cross ethnic and cultural boundaries from one street to the next and will increase the complexity of operations....thus adding another layer of complexity to the hearts and minds campaign.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Personnel and Organisation, grade: 1,0, Curtin University of Technology (Wirtschaftswissenschaften and Curtin Business School), 85 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Germany's population, and consequently its workforce is ageing. Fewer young people will enter the workforce and employers will be pressed to draw from an expanding pool of older people. As a consequence the working age population is projected to decline significantly; while the numbers of organisations depended on them will rise. At the same time, baby boomers are moving towards retirement and can not be replaced by middle-aged or younger workers. Facing impending talent shortages and a substantial loss of knowledge and experience, companies might have little choice but to implement new employment strategies. Primarily based on secondary research and supported by available data from various research institutions, this paper considers relevant variables and approaches related to challenges from a German perspective. This is done regardless of specific industry conditions and circumstances. The paper covers selected peripheral issues like attitudes and retirement intentions of older workers and the myths and stereotypes about them. It provides an overview of the German labour market, specifically the situation of older people, and how public policy has been responding to improve related conditions. Finally, minor and ma...

Daniel Kemmis Community and the Politics of Place

1702 руб.
Thomas Jefferson envisioned a nation of citizens deeply involved in public life. Today Americans are lamenting the erosion of his ideal. What happened in the intervening centuries? Daniel Kemmis argues that our loss of capacity for public life (which impedes our ability to resolve crucial issues) parallels our loss of a sense of place. A renewed sense of inhabitation, he maintains -of community rooted in place and of people dwelling in that place in a practiced way-can shape politics into a more cooperative and more humanly satisfying enterprise, producing better people, better communities, and better places.The author emphasizes the importance of place by analyzing problems and possibilities of public life in a particular place- those northern states whose settlement marked the end of the old frontier. National efforts to "keep citizens apart" by encouraging them to develop open country and rely upon impersonal, procedural methods for public problems have bred stalemate, frustration, and alienation. As alternatives he suggests how western patterns of inhabitation might engender a more cooperative, face-to-face practice of public life.Community and the Politics of Place also examines our ambivalence about the relationship between cities and rural areas and about the role of corporations in public life. The book offers new insight into the relationship between politics and economics and addresses the question of whether the nation-state is an appropriate entity for the...

The late Navjot Sodhi conceived this book as a way of bringing to the forefront of our conservation planning for the tropics the views of people who were actually working and living there. In its 31 chapters, 55 authors present their views on the conservation problems they face and how they deal with them. Effective long term conservation in the tropics requires the full participation of local people, organizations and governments. The human population of tropical countries is expected to grow by more than 2.5 billion people over the next several decades, with expectations of increased consumption levels growing even more rapidly than population levels; clearly there will be a need for more trained conservationists and biologists. Significant levels of local involvement are essential to conservation success, with the rights of local people fully recognized, protected and fostered by governmental and international assistance. Overarching conservation plans are necessary, but cannot in themselves lead to success. The individual experiences presented in the pages of this book will provide useful models that may serve to build better and more sustainable lives for the people who live in the tropics and lead to the continued survival of as many species and functioning ecosystems as possible.

A volume in Adolescence and EducationSeries Editor Ben Kirshner, University of ColoradoSocial media and digital tools permeate the everyday lives of young people. In the earlystages of commentary about the impact of the digital age on civic life, debates revolvedaround whether the Internet enhanced or discouraged civic and political action. Since thenwe have seen new media move to center stage in politics and activism--from the 2008 USelection to the 2011 Arab Spring to the Occupy movement. We have also seen new patternsin how different sub-groups make use of digital media. These developments havepushed people to move beyond questions about whether new media are good or bad forcivic life, to ask instead: how, under what conditions, and for whom, do new digital tools become resources for political critiqueand action by the young?This book will provide a platform for a new wave of scholarship about young people's political participation in the digitalage. We define "youth" or "young people" as roughly between the ages of 12 and 25. We include perspectives from politicalscience, education, cultural studies, learning sciences, and youth development. We draw on the framework developedby the MacArthur Research Network on Youth and Participatory Politics (Cohen, Kahne, Bowyer, Middaugh, &Rogowski, 2012), which defines participatory politics as, "interactive, peer-basedacts through which individuals and groups seek to exert both voice and influence onissue...

The Global Idea of the Commons

1677 руб.
During the last three decades, corporations allied with scientists and universities, national and regional governments, and international financial institutions have, through a variety of mechanisms associated with neo-liberal globalization, acted to dispossess large proportions of the world's population of their commons' resources and enclose them for profit making. In response, throughout the global South and in the cities of the global North, large numbers of people have formed movements to defend the commons in all their variety. The idea of the commons has thus emerged as a global idea, and commons have emerged as sites of conflict around the world. The essays in this forum assess strategically the situations of selected commons in a variety of diagnostic sites where they exist, the ways in which they are being transformed by the incursions of capital and state, and the ways in which they are becoming the locus of struggle for those who depend on them to survive.Donald M. Nonini is Professor of Anthropology and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Anthropology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

A military contingent is sent to the distant world to eliminate the current population and prepare for immediate colonization.

Politics at the national level often overshadows the importance of what goes on locally. Often, we are more concerned about the decisions made by Congress and the Supreme Court than the decisions made by City Councils that affect us more directly. Politics and People is a compelling memoir about the power of getting involved in local politics. Lucente encourages individuals to take action in their cities by voicing their concerns, electing responsible officials, and even running for office themselves. No matter age, gender, or political party, everyone is needed to take part in their city’s government.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, University of applied sciences, Siegen, language: English, abstract: The German population structure is facing an aging population and low birth rates. Since the 1970s, birth rates already undercut the number of necessary children to preserve the population. Since the end of the 1990s the yearly birthrate is 1.4 children per woman. Germany's population has been declining since 2004 and scientists predict that the children's generation will be one third smaller than the parents' one. Without substantial migration the age structure will change significantly. In 2008, Germanys' working-age population (20-65 years old) was at 60.6 per cent. From 2030 on this number will decrease to 54.5 per cent. At the same time, the number of people older than 65 years will increase from 20.4 to 28.8 per cent. This development is provoking substantial problems in social and retirement systems, since a growing number of people are making use of insurance benefits and less people of the working generation contribute to raise the financial resources. Another major problem is the increasing gap on the employment market, because not the whole leaving workforce can be replaced with adequate personnel. Scientists predict that in the next 20 years 13.4 million people are leaving the working life but only 7.2 million jobs can be filled with young national professi...

E. M. Forster The Machine Stops

602 руб.
2017 Reprint of 1909 Edition. The story describes a world in which most of the human population has lost the ability to live on the surface of the Earth. Each individual now lives in isolation below ground in a standard room, with all bodily and spiritual needs met by the omnipotent, global Machine. Travel is permitted, but is unpopular and rarely necessary. Communication is made via a kind of instant messaging/video conferencing machine with which people conduct their only activity: the sharing of ideas and what passes for knowledge. It is intended as a chilling reminder of the possible consequences on over reliance on machines and the changes to human capacity and character that could result from this over dependence. Consider a classic of the science fiction genre and a prescient warning about our reliance on machine technology.

This factor will be on a level about 1.4 till the year 2050. If this level will be stable, Germans population decrease on an alarming level. There are different factors which affect the development of demography within Germany and the EU. The influencing factors are: increasing expectations of life, decreasing fertility rate, immigration and contraception.In addition to the above mentioned points, business structure and development will change extremely within the next years. Percentages between older people and younger people will be returned so that there will be a higher percentage of older people in Germany's society. Market requirements will change, market potentials will decrease due to decreasing population figures. Investments will drop from current level to a lower level caused by over capacity. Concerning the finance of the annuity assurance and the compulsory health insurance it is absolutely necessary to strike a new path due to the population development. It is inescapable to attach more importance to individual responsibility than to the inter-generation contract.And ..........

Deep Earth: Physics and Chemistry of the Lower Mantle and Core highlights recent advances and the latest views of the deep Earth from theoretical, experimental, and observational approaches and offers insight into future research directions on the deep Earth. In recent years, we have just reached a stage where we can perform measurements at the conditions of the center part of the Earth using state-of-the-art techniques, and many reports on the physical and chemical properties of the deep Earth have come out very recently. Novel theoretical models have been complementary to this breakthrough. These new inputs enable us to compare directly with results of precise geophysical and geochemical observations. This volume highlights the recent significant advancements in our understanding of the deep Earth that have occurred as a result, including contributions from mineral/rock physics, geophysics, and geochemistry that relate to the topics of: I. Thermal structure of the lower mantle and core II. Structure, anisotropy, and plasticity of deep Earth materials III. Physical properties of the deep interior IV. Chemistry and phase relations in the lower mantle and core V. Volatiles in the deep Earth The volume will be a valuable resource for researchers and students who study the Earth's interior. The topics of this volume are multidisciplinary, and therefore will be useful to students from a wide variety of fields in the Earth Sciences.

The African country of Mozambique has been undertaking a remarkable development process within the past. However, this could not be translated into significantly decreasing poverty- or unemployment rates. Due to a high population growth and large amounts of jobseekers every year, the economy is not able to create a corresponding number of jobs. Especially amongst young the unemployment remains high. Moreover, there seems to be a crucial mismatch between the demand of the labour market and the knowledge provided by the education sector. This work is based on a qualitative field study carried out in Ribáuè, a district located in Nampula province, in the northern part of Mozambique. It wants to shed further light on employment possibilities young people have and aims on fostering a vast image of their situation by examining sectors such as education, agriculture and politics.

Lives in Translation: Sikh Youth as British Citizens

2817 руб.
In "Lives in Translation", Kathleen Hall investigates the cultural politics of immigration and citizenship, education and identity-formation among Sikh youth whose parents migrated to England from India and East Africa. Legally British, these young people encounter race as a barrier to becoming truly "English." Hall breaks with conventional ethnographies about immigrant groups by placing this paradox of modern citizenship at the center of her study, considering Sikh immigration within a broader analysis of the making of a multiracial postcolonial British nation. The postwar British public sphere has been a contested terrain on which the politics of cultural pluralism and of social incorporation have configured the possibilities and the limitations of citizenship and national belonging. Hall's rich ethnographic account directs attention to the shifting fields of power and cultural politics in the public sphere, where collective identities, social statuses, and cultural subjectivities are produced in law and policy, education and the media, as well as in families, peer groups, ethnic networks, and religious organizations. Hall uses a blend of interviews, fieldwork, and archival research to challenge the assimilationist narrative of the traditional immigration myth, demonstrating how migrant people come to know themselves and others through contradictory experiences of social conflict and solidarity across different social fields within the public sphere.

We read in the scriptures that Moses and Elijah came to visit Jesus and encouraged him before his death on the cross. When Christ resurrected, we also hear of saints coming out of their graves and appearing in the holy city to people living there. (See Matthew 17:1-13 and Matthew 27:52.) We are now entering a new phase on earth where people that live in heaven are visiting people on earth and mentoring them and teaching them spiritual principles. Justin Abraham, Ian Clayton, Shawn Bolz, and other Christian ministers are reporting these unique visitations, and soon many people on earth will be encountering saints from heaven. In this book, Matthew Robert Payne interviews some of God’s generals: John G. Lake, Kathryn Kuhlman, Charles Finney, and Smith Wigglesworth. They each answered several questions, such as: •What is important to God •What they like about heaven •A message for this generation and •Important keys for the Christian life. Let God’s generals speak to you in simple English, infused with their wisdom from heaven and their experience on earth so that they can lead you into a type of life that will see you achieve everything that you were born to do. This book provides practical advice and actionable steps that you can use as a tool to thrust you into a successful Christian life.

Ethiopia is a country with an overwhelmingly young population. About 63% of the total population of Ethiopia is below the age of 25 years. Young people of ages 10-24 are the largest group to be entering adulthood in Ethiopian history. This cohort of young people makes up 25% of the total population (2007 Census). This young section of the population in Ethiopia is faced with multiple and interrelated social, economic and health problems. Young Ethiopians suffer the most by the consequences of risky sexual behaviors; they are confronted with unwanted pregnancy, abortion, sexually transmitted infections including HIV/AIDS and social trauma attached to these problems. Unintended pregnancies still affect the lives of many young girls, forcing them to drop out of school, and thereby endangering their lives (2011, World Health Organization). This blue print book provides appropriate information, regarding the associated factors of risky sexual behaviors among in school young Ethiopians in the study area, for the concerned bodies to make intervention.

Ageing Without Children. European and Asian Perspectives on Elderly Access to Support Networks

4627 руб.
Rapid fertility declines and improved longevity are now shifting the overall balance of population towards older ages in many parts of the world. Within this growing population of older people there are many groups with particular needs about which relatively little is known.This collection focuses on one such sub-population, the elderly without children. Few would deny that childlessness poses potential human and welfare problems for older people without them. What is less well known is that comparative anthropological and historical demographic research indicates that childlessness is a recurring social phenomenon that has affected 1 in 5 older women in many cultures and historical periods. High levels of childlessness arise not solely or primarily from biological factors like primary sterility, but from a combination of factors. Many, like non-marriage, delayed childbearing , and pathological sterility, reflect the interaction of social and biological influences. Also of major importance are factors that remove the support of children from elders' lives: migration, mortality, divorce, remarriage, family enmity, social mobility, and the pressing demands of family and career on younger generations. The papers collected in this volume employ a mixture of quantitative and qualitative methods to define and characterize the experience of ageing without children.Philip Kreager is Lecturer in Human Sciences, Somerville College, and Senior Research Fellow at the Oxford Institut...
