  1. Sanitation and hygiene promotion: programming guidance

    Evans, BE
    This document is about setting in place a process whereby people (women, children and men) effect and sustain a hygienic and healthy environment for themselves. It talks about developing a programme for more effective investment in sanitation and hygiene promotion. It is not about developing projects and it does not give blue-print solutions for project-level interventions. Rather it lays out a process for long-term change which may encompass institutional transformation of the policy and organizational arrangements for provision of goods and services. This publication was produced jointly by WSSCC, WHO, LSHTM, PAHO, UNICEF, USAID, WEDC and WSP.

  2. Making Online News: The Ethnography of New Media Production


    This book investigates the production of online news by analyzing the daily work of online journalists, how it differs from traditional media production, and the consequences it has for the character and quality of online news. It advocates revitalizing the ethnographic methodologies of sociologists who entered newsrooms in the 1970s and 1980s, while at the same time exploring new theoretical frameworks to better understand the evolution of online journalism and how newsrooms deal with innovation and change.

  3. Metal machining: Theory and applications

    Childs, T; Maekawa, K; Obikawa, T; Yamane, Y
    Metal machining is the most widespread metal-shaping process in the mechanical manufacturing industry. World-wide investment in metal machining tools increases year on year - and the wealth of nations can be judged by it. This text - the most up-to-date in the field - provides in-depth discussion of the theory and application of metal machining at an advanced level. It begins with an overview of the development of metal machining and its role in the current industrial environment and continues with a discussion of the theory and practice of machining. The underlying mechanics are analysed in detail and there are...

  5. Once Bitten, Twice Bitten: Repeat Victimisation and Its Implications for Crime Prevention

    Farrell, G; Pease, K
    This report pulls together a number of research results from a variety of sources, much of it carried out with Home Office support. The subject of the report is ‘repeat victimisation’ – the paper describes the extent to which victims or places are repeatedly subject to crime and speculates about the implications for prevention. In relation to some offences the repeated vulnerability of particular individuals is self evident – domestic violence is probably the most obvious example. But in relation to other crimes, such as domestic burglary, attacks on schools or car crime the extent to which repetition occurs is...

  9. Public policies, law and bioethics::a framework for producing public health policy across the European Union

    Shickle, Darren; Richardson, Erica; Day, Fiona; Munthe, Christian; Jovell, Albert; Gylling, Heta; Vos, Rein; Takala, Tuija; Petrini, Carlo; Torlone, G; Moran, Nicola Elizabeth; Holme, Ingrid; El-Arifi, Karen; Hunt, Adrienne; Griffin, Marcus; Coupland, Alex; Stroud, L
    Unlike the duties of clinicians to patients, professional standards for ethical practice are not well defined in public health. This is mainly due to public health practice having to reconcile tensions between public and private interest(s). This involves at times being paternalistic, while recognising the importance of privacy and autonomy, and at the same time balancing the interests of some against those of others. The Public Health specialist operates at the macro level, frequently having to infer the wishes and needs of individuals that make up a population and may have to make decisions where the interests of people conflict....

  10. First-Degree Incest and the Hebrew Bible: Sex in the Family

    Stiebert, J
    'Incest' refers to illegal sexual relations between family members. Its precise contours, however, are culturally specific. Hence, an illegal incestuous union in one social context may be a legal close-kin union in another. First-degree sexual unions, between a parent and child, or between siblings, are most widely prohibited and abhorred. This book discusses all overt and covert first-degree incest relations in the Hebrew Bible and also probes the significance of gaps and what these imply about projected sexual and social values. As the dominant opinion on the origin of first-degree incest continues to be shaped, new voices such as those...

  11. Christianity and Controversies over Homosexuality in Contemporary Africa


    ssues of homosexuality are the subject of public and political controversy in many African societies today. Frequently, these controversies receive widespread attention both locally and globally, such as with the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda. In the international media, these cases tend to be presented as revealing a deeply-rooted homophobia in Africa fuelled by religious and cultural traditions. But so far little energy is expended in understanding these controversies in all their complexity and the critical role religion plays in them. Complementing the companion volume, Public Religion and the Politics of Homosexuality in Africa, this book investigates Christian politics and discourses...

  16. Thanatourism and Cinematic Representations of Risk: Screening the End of Tourism

    Tzanelli, R
    In today’s world, the need to eliminate natural and human-made disasters has been at the forefront of national and international socio-political agendas. The management of risks such as terrorism, labour strikes, protests and environmental degradation has become pivotal for countries that depend on their economy’s tourist sector. Indeed, there is fear that that ‘the end of tourism’ might be nigh due to inadequate institutional foresight. Yet, in designing relevant policies to tackle this, arts such as that of filmmaking have yet to receive due consideration. This book adopts an unorthodox approach to debates about ‘the end of tourism’. Through twenty-first...

  17. Languages and languaging in deaf education: A framework for pedagogy

    Swanwick, RA
    This text addresses two main questions about deaf children’s language and learning. The first of these is concerned with how we understand and describe deaf children’s language use and experience in terms of current concepts of language plurality and diversity. The second asks how knowledge of, and a different perspective on, deaf children’s language diversity and pluralism can inform pedagogy. The text reviews the knowledge available about deaf children’s bimodal bilingualism and learning and extends this knowledge to embrace deaf children’s multilingual language experiences and lives. This review raises questions about how well we understand the diverse and plural language...

  20. War Reporters Under Threat: The United States and Media Freedom

    Paterson, CA
    War Reporters Under Threat describes the threat of violence facing war reporters from the United States government and some of its closest allies. Chris Paterson argues that what should have been the lesson for the press following the invasion of Iraq – that they will be treated instrumentally by the US government – has been mostly ignored. As a result, even nominally democratic states cannot be counted upon to protect journalists in conflict, and urgent reform of legal protections for journalists is required. War Reporters Under Threat combines critical scholarship with original investigation to assess the impact of the US...
