Summary. Commentary around the electronic media has raised issues of political action, com-munity formation and changing identities. This paper explores how the notions of 'public space' can inform this debate over electronic media. It examines the metaphorical adoption of urban models to look at electronic sociality and suggests four principle approaches: cities set in or against world flows, suburbanised telecities, communitarian visions and accounts that appeal to a renewed public sphere. The paper examines how these share many assumptions. However, instead of trying to sift these metaphors by contrasting them to a purported real world, the paper examines how they shape an electronic architecture. Spatial metaphors and electronic practices are seen as entangled and shaping each other. The paper suggests that the different metaphors for the city reflect a range of anxieties about and desires for urban life. In this sense, the 'real' city is the indefinable complexity and folding of spaces--lying outside the visualisations offered of cyberspace.
Cyberspace as a whole, and networked virtual environments in particular, allow us to not only theorize about potential architectures informed by the best of current thought, but to actually construct such spaces for human inhabitation in a completely new kind of public realm. This does not imply a lack of constraint, but rather a substitution of one kind of rigour for another. When bricks become pixels, the tectonics of architecture becomes informational. (Novak, 1995, p. 4/4).
When it comes to thinking about the city and information and communication networks, we need to address the question what is 'urban' about these networks at all? I suggest it is less the location of access points than interactional spaces created. These are often organised using an urban ar-chitecture. I begin by examining accounts…...

Do you agree that the government should be involved? Why or why not? Yes. I agreed with the actively involvement of the Government in certain markets. And markets are great tools for advancing the welfare of Americans over its history. The purpose of government interferences defines boundaries between what aspects of life should be a part of market and which should not. Governments can also use regulations to lessen risk, promote efficiently by correcting markets failures and externalities .Government regulations can enforce property rights, stimulates anticompetitive activities and increase competition. Government intervention can be appropriate and successful by eliminating monopoly, facilitating loans to students and business, establishing ethical rules to avoid corruption and so forth.

Fuel Reforms Gather Pace

...18 JAN 2013 / Sector Update OIL & GAS SECTOR OIL & GAS Fuel reforms gather pace; ONGC best bet Government has provided a roadmap to diesel deregulation by authorizing OMCs (BPCL, HPCL, IOC) to take minor price hikes periodically. This implies diesel under-recoveries could vanish over next 2 years, which would be a huge trigger for Oil PSUs. Cooking fuel under-recoveries may also vanish once direct cash subsidy scheme is rolled out pan-India. Though this would remove all subsidy concerns and re-rate the entire space, we expect roadblocks due to political fallout of the ~20% diesel price hike. We expect 80% reduction in diesel under-recoveries over next two years. We upgrade ONGC, OIL to BUY with ~12% upside from CMP. BPCL (maintain BUY; 10% upside) is our preferred bet among OMCs due to its E&P exposure. Maintain HOLD on IOC and HPCL as they price in the development.

...PACE is a managed care plan that provides medical, social, and supportive services to medically fragile seniors over the age of 55 with the goal of enabling them to remain in their homes. The roots of the program were developed in the 1970’s by a public dentist in San Francisco in Chinatown, Dr. William Gee. He and others in the community we looking for ways to care for their elders. They hired a consultant to determine the feasibility of building a community nursing home. It was realized that this was culturally and financially inadvisable. They then developed the idea for an adult day care that expanded to offer comprehensive services. There are currently 24,000 seniors enrolled in PACE nationwide in 29 states. There are five PACE programs here in California located in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento and Oakland and their contact information is listed in the handout.

Public Management to Public Value

...The Australian Journal of Public Administration, vol. 66, no. 3, pp. 353–366 doi:10.1111/j.1467-8500.2007.00545.x RESEARCH AND EVALUATION From New Public Management to Public Value: Paradigmatic Change and Managerial Implications Janine O’Flynn The Australian National University Both practitioners and scholars are increasingly interested in the idea of public value as a way of understanding government activity, informing policy-making and constructing service delivery. In part this represents a response to the concerns about ‘new public management’, but it also provides an interesting way of viewing what public sector organisations and public managers actually do. The purpose of this article is to examine this emerging approach by reviewing new public management and contrasting this with a public value paradigm. This provides the basis for a conceptual discussion of differences in approach, but also for pointing to some practical implications for both public sector management and public sector managers. Key words: new public management, public value, role of managers Public sector reform has been a common experience across the world despite its different forms and foci (Pollitt and Bouckaert 2004). Commonly as scholars and practitioners we refer to the reforms of the last few decades as ‘new public management’ (NPM) which, for Hood (1991), represented a paradigmatic break from the traditional model of public administration. During this era several countries......

Public Relations

...Give a detailed narration unpacking how the Public Relations function has evolved over the years and the challenges that the practice faces in the developing countries. Public Relations function is as old as human civilisation. Published narrations or histories have usually telescoped and oversimplified a fascinating history by emphasising novelty and a few decorated personalities. There have been contributions in the professional literature that impart a meaningful picture of public relations function’s past and present (Cutlip, 1994). It has existed in one form or the other. There are a lot of examples of its varied form, content and end use. An ancient clay tablet, found in Iraq, told the Sumerian farmers how to grow better crops. That was over 4000 years ago. The Arabian tales relate how the celebrated Sultan Haroon-Al-Rashid used to wander about every night in disguise to see for him as to what the people really felt about his administration. However, the available literature makes us inclined to think of public relations as a 20th century phenomenon, but the desire to communicate with others and to deal with the impact of opinion dates back to ancient cultures (Wilcox and Cameron, 2003).Therefore, this paper seeks to give a detailed narration unpacking the public relations function evolution over the years and the challenges that the practice faces in the developing countries. In the Ramayana there is a character called Bhadro who used to report to Rama......

Through a detailed analysis of Ken, Cody and Ali’s personality, our group provides what we think is Ali’s best course of action. To conclude, a review of the company’s current development / performance and a Porter’s Five Forces analysis is conducted to better understand Pace Technologies’ competitive environment. For an easier read, we have divided our answers to the case study questions according to topics. Shaping Company Culture and the Preconventional Level of Ethical Development.Ken shapes the culture of Pace Technology based on his own personality which is aggressive, proactive, energetic and competitive. Ken only recruits people who share the same personality traits as him enabling the company to win over competition. Additionally, given Ken’s outstanding performance and track- record, he is seen positively by the Board, who is interested in maximizing profits and gives him the authority and power to make all day-to-day and strategic decisions. Our group considers the culture of Pace Technologies to be at the preconventional level of ethical development in which “individuals are concerned with external rewards and punishments and obey authority to avoid detrimental personal consequences”...

...again that she must confess to the burglary. Kirsty is crying and upset but DC Sharp continues to shout at her, banging his fist on the table in front of her. After an hour of this treatment, Kirsty signs a confession. Assess the possibility of excluding the confession. Introduction The Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 ("PACE 1984") is an act designed to protect the public from unfair treatment and to allow Police Officers in England and Wales to pursue the course of justice and to reduce crime. Within the act there are rules to which all police officers must conform and a guide for the public to protect against unfairly obtained evidence. In this essay are two suspects who have against them a signed confession. This essay will assess the relevant sections of the act and assess the possibility of the evidence being excluded. The question focuses on two suspects who have signed a confession. The following paragraphs will discuss the possibility of the evidence being excluded by examining the relevant sections of PACE 1984. The two suspects Kirsty and Martin were brought into the station on suspicion of burglary. The PACE 1984 Codes of Practice are relevant in building an argument against the reliability of the confessions. The initial stage of Code C of the Code of Practice 3.1 states that all custody officers bringing a person into custody must ensure that the detainee has the right to let someone know that they have been arrested, and most......

...| 9/11/01 and Public Health | HSA4011GI-201032011 Public Health Management - Kevon Pierre | | Denise Solis | 1/22/2011 | | 1 On September 11, 2001 I was heading out with my nephew Alex to family court and my husband Tony could not be with me that day. He was working with Marc Green on the campaign for Mayor of NYC and on that day it happened to be the day to vote to determine who would run for mayor. While driving to the court house, I received a disturbing call from him saying that there had been a plane crash at the twin towers and he was told to get back in his uniform and get to the site. Tony worked for FDNY as a paramedic and on that day all of the public health employees for NYC were called in for an emergency. This specific occurrence has had a great impact in our society and on public health. Security was breached due to the lack of an intense airport security. Since then our government has worked on how this can be prevented from happening to the USA again. The first order of business after the attacks involved a few plans to solve the problems at hand then later and determine how to make them long-term changes. “The Air Transportation Safety and System Stabilization Act (2001), was allotted five billion in grants and ten billion in credit for airlines as form of compensation for 9-11. The reason behind this was to aid airports all across America in returning to their “usual business” since all airports were re-opening after a period of...
