Media,Environmental Sustainability & National Development in Nigeria

The book, Media, Environmental Sustainability and National Development in Nigeria takes a look at the interface between the mass media and the environment in the process of national development. Quite often many take part in practices that hurt the environment to the extent that human survival is impaired. Such practices include unrestrained felling of trees which leads to deforestation; and unregulated hunting to the extent that many animals have become extinct. Many ecological problems have resulted with erosion washing off top soil which imperils agricultural development. The destruction of the flora and fauna is also an important challenge. The nine-chapter book addresses such issues as State of the Environment, Global Warming, Assault on the Environment, Some Ecological Disaster Zones and efforts made to Reclaim the Environment, among others. Since the mass media are channels of information to the populace, the book emphasizes the role of the mass media in drawing attention to healthy environment practices while discouraging negative human activities that depreciate the quality of the environment and endanger the survival of present and future generations of the human race.

Aspiring Fulfilment in the Camps

In this mixed method study Palestinian adolescent refugees reflected on their aspirations and the possibilities and constraints to achieve them within their environment. The mixed method approach chosen provided enriching data. In addition, the use of participatory video proved to be valuable as an empowering tool for the participants. The findings showed - based on the concepts of human security, wellbeing, needs and fulfilment - that the participants showed all dimensions of wellbeing and needs in their aspirations. Behavior towards human fulfillment - assumed to be the aim of human development – was found among focus group participants even though their safety needs were not met. Besides the conflict, social pressure proved to be the most important constraint for the adolescents. Notably, they indicated their possibilities to lie dominantly in their own capacities and agency. These findings show that local NGOs – without the power to change the institutional environment – have the possibility to enhance the wellbeing of the teenagers through stimulating their potential agency and coaching them to negotiate their aspirations within their environment.

It raises questions about the principles, values, and relationships that bind people together in societies. It raises questions about power and justice. Youth civic development pushes the field to focus on the social issues with which younger generations are grappling and the identities they are constructing—issues that also are shaped by structural inequalities and by the collective actions of youth. The volume builds on themes of agency and assets from the field of positive youth development and points to ways that the critical analysis and engagement of young people in their society can contribute to social change. This is the 134th volume in this series. Its mission is to provide scientific and scholarly presentations on cutting edge issues and concepts in child and adolescent development. Each volume focuses on a specific new direction or research topic and is edited by experts on that topic.

Education as supposed to be a powerful instrument of social change, has to be restructured and reoriented to promote the human values as enunciated in the Constitution of India, because the obvious need of mankind is to live in harmony and to nurture creativity so as to realize the goals of inclusive society.Multidimensional forces are working against the spirit of humanity what is embedded in the Constitution of India. Today, the status of our nation from the humanity point of view is very gloomy. Thus, a study of human values as enshrined in the Constitution of India of the adolescents has a great significance of its own. Adolescent phase of human life is very crucial for human values development. Here an empirical endeavour has been made to study the human values among adolescent students as enunciated in the Constitution of India.

Uche Okeke

Nigerian art tradition has witnessed tremendous growth and development in the last seven decades. A few visionary creative artists are responsible for this. Professor Uche Okeke stands unique among them. It is therefore not possible to study the Nigerian art without reference to the enormous contributions of this legendary artist. Our focus in this book therefore is to investigate, ascertain and document the extent to which these contributions aided the growth and development of art study and practice in Nigeria. Consequently, each of the seven chapters of this book constitutes definitive stages in the pursuit of our overall goal. From a historical brief on Uche Okeke, we undertook an in-depth exegesis of the origin and growth of the Nigerian art, which no doubt predates Uche Okeke. This enabled us to properly determine the period of Uche Okeke’s formal training in art as well as his involvement in the famous Zaria Art Society’s struggle. His teaching career at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, from where he launched his phenomenal development to art study and practice in the country was also comprehensively documented.

Environment and Society Perspectives across disciplines”

‘Environment’ simply means ‘surroundings’ and that is why Einstein defined as “Environment is everything that isn’t me”. The environment is everything that surrounds us, including the air, the land, the oceans, and all livings things, the relationship between human being and his environment has varied from time to time. Over the course of the last century, the relationship between human beings and the planet on which they live changed fundamentally. Man is nature’s best promise and worst enemy. There is a close relationship which exists between a healthy environment and economic condition of the community at large. It is a basic right of all to live in a healthy environment. Different society has, time immemorial, been conscious of the necessity of protecting environment and ecology. The main motto of social life has been “to live in harmony with nature”. It was regarded as a sacred duty of everyone to protect them.It is difficult to clearly delineate the causes and consequences of environmental degradation in terms of simple one-to-one relationships. The causes and effects are often interwoven in complex webs of social, technological and environmental factors.

Impact of Growth and Trade on Environment - Evidence from India

The Environment -Development syndrome has been the major concern of developing countries like India. The developing countries being disenchanted by the unforeseen consequences brought forth by the process of development have been in a dilemma to choose between development and environmental protection. It would obviously be absurd to advice the developing countries to stop all industrialisation for the sake of the environment. The standard of living and standard of life simultaneously are the pre-requisites for humanity to survive. While development provides the former, the latter rests on the environment. It has been a tough trade-off decision between economic growth and environmental protection especially in developing countries. Development per se, is not always the cause of environmental degradation. Rather, there are certain kinds of mindless development strategies that deteriorate the environment and these need to be curbed and changed. As a result there is a growing recognition that the overall goals of environment and development are not in conflict but are indeed the same.
Egon Schiele Egon Schiele Новинка

Egon Schiele

One of the most important artists of the early twentieth century, Egon Schiele is vastly influential-he ranks among the pioneers of modernism in Austria along with Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka. To mark the centennial of Schiele's passing in 1918, the Albertina Museum in Vienna will be a mounting a large-scale exhibition from its extensive holdings of Schiele's works, and this companion catalog to the exhibition offers a unique overview of Schiele's development as a draughtsman and watercolorist.Providing a clear picture of Schiele's stylistic development over the decades, the book reveals his great, overarching theme: human beings' existential loneliness. Viewed together, these works bear devastating witness to his inability to shake the despair of feeling fundamentally misunderstood. Schiele's work continues to inspire artists, critics, and collectors today, and this book will offer a beautiful and moving testament to the continued power of his oeuvre.

Lifespan Development

There has been a vigorous debate in recent time, about heredity versus environment and how they coalesce to create personalities, behaviors, and psychopathology that appeared unique to each person and influenced their developmental process. This book therefore explores and used different methodological approach to lifespan development to measure and analyze the interplay of genes and environments on human behavior and underline how the interaction contributes to behavioral changes and continuity. The book planned to increase our knowledge and understanding of the interaction between heritable and ecological factors in the path of behavioral growth and patently recognize etiological mechanism that support the assumption that a particular hereditary or environmental condition ultimately lead to behavioral feature and changes during development. The book should help shed some light on the continuous source of person uniqueness in personality development,and should be especially useful to professionals in human development or any one else whose interest is in human behaviour.

New Urban Development and the Historic Environment

Controlling the quality of new development introduced inside the historic environment represents one of the crucial tools that can help in confronting the challenges facing our cities. Present-day challenges facing the historic environment inside the Egyptian cities involve, among other things, the prevalence of run-down urban areas and the dominance of visual clutter. The enactment of the Act No. 119 and the introduction of the idea to designate areas that enjoy a distinctive value represent the first steps on the right track to develop the Egyptian experience in the management of the historic environment. This book discusses diverse subjects including the various approaches that can be adopted to design new buildings inside historic districts, the evaluation of the adaptability of new development works to their surrounding historic contexts and the various legislative tools concerned with controlling the quality of new development introduced inside the historic environment. The various examples that support the arguments adopted throughout this book are based on the author’s previous academic studies and his few visits to some European countries and the United States of America.

Examines effects of the environmental distribution of antimicrobial resistance genes on human health and the ecosystem Resistance genes are everywhere in nature—in pathogens, commensals, and environmental microorganisms. This contributed work shows how the environment plays a pivotal role in the development of antimicrobial resistance traits in bacteria and the distribution of resistant microbial species, resistant genetic material, and antibiotic compounds. Readers will discover the impact of the distribution in the environment of antimicrobial resistance genes and antibiotics on both the ecosystem and human and animal health. Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment is divided into four parts: Part I, Sources, including ecological and clinical consequences of antibiotic resistance by environmental microbes Part II, Fate, including strategies to assess and minimize the biological risk of antibiotic resistance in the environment Part III, Antimicrobial Substances and Resistance, including antibiotics in the aquatic environment Part IV, Effects and Risks, including the effect of antimicrobials used for non-human purposes on human health Recognizing the intricate links among overlapping complex systems, this book examines antimicrobial resistance using a comprehensive ecosystem approach. Moreover, the book's multidisciplinary framework applies principles of microbiology, environmental toxicology, and chemistry to assess the human and ecological risks associated with exposure to antibiotics or antibiotic resistance genes that are environmental contaminants. Each chapter has been written by one or more leading researchers in such fields as microbiology, environmental science, ecology, and toxicology. Comprehensive reference lists at the end of all chapters serve as a gateway to the primary research in the field. Presenting and analyzing the latest findings in a field of growing importance to human and environmental health, this text offers readers new insights into the role of the environment in antimicrobial resistance development, the dissemination of antimicrobial resistant genetic elements, and the transport of antibiotic resistance genes and antibiotics.
