Cv Publications' series of relocation guides to English counties was launched with my survey of Oxfordshire. It was a journey of discovery. Rather than just passing from point A to B, my excursions followed an ad hoc schedule of diverse routes. I found myself turning down obscure side lanes leading to little villages hidden in a marvelous landscape of deep countryside. Documenting over 100 centers, the county gradually revealed itself as largely unspoiled by the industrial sprawl. Oxford itself is of course very lively and cosmopolitan, but communications and facilities are as good in the many market towns. I was really interested to note the range of properties both old and new and the particular character of an area. I hope that my guide provides details and insights that will assist your own enquiries for a new location. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sangita Chauhan.

David Reynolds' major BBC Radio 4 series explores the origins of the contemporary Untied States from its beginnings to the present day. This epic narrative tells America's story through the voices of those who lived it - presidents and farmers, mothers and children, settlers and soldiers, slaves and Indians. The series celebrates the country's achievements but also examines its paradoxes by investigating three abiding themes of American life: empire, liberty and faith. Empire of Liberty: from the arrival of Native Americans from Asia to the slave trade and the forced relocation of the Indians, the first series describes how the United States expanded to cover a whole continent, laying the foundations of a superpower - if the country could remain united. Power & Progress: the second series depicts the tragedy and heroism of the Civil War (1861-65), which finally ended slavery - though not racial discrimination - and the dynamism of the reunited nation as it grew into an industrial giant. America's role in the Second World War is also examined. Empire & Evil: the final series chronicles America's long struggle with the Soviet Union and examines the effect of that confrontation on American values, particularly in Vietnam and Watergate. The country's struggle to overcome its racist past led from the civil rights movement to its first black president. Also examined is the impact of Elvis on popular music, the battle over abortion and the story of the personal computer and the information revolution. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Reynolds.

Leather industry is one of the export oriented industries of Bangladesh which is gaining both economic and industrial importance now a day. The migration of leather tanning activity from developed to developing countries over the past four decades has also helped this manufacturing activity to increase. The main tannery area is at Hazaribagh in Dhaka. Since precautionary and protective measures have not been taken from the beginning, the environmental condition of Hazaribagh area has been deteriorating for many years. Eventually, it fosters the need of securing this development and growth of tanneries by ensuring the environmental security of the tanning sector and government has launched a relocation project of tannery industries from Hazaribagh to a new area located at Savar. But this relocation project proves to go in vain because of unwillingness to move of the tannery owners and in terms of the cost effectiveness and potential environmental threat of the new area. The redevelopment of the Hazaribagh area after relocation is also seemed to be impossible due to the enormous risk of consequence of the polluted soil, air and water to the human body and structure.
Development- initiated by industrialization, is expected to take care of the financial, material, psychological and the environmental aspects. Destruction of natural resources of the native land has been a disaster, not only in "Kalinga Nagar", but also in almost all the industrial hubs, across the world... Planning for industry, related to displacement and relocation, design of industrial cities,- all such aspects should be harmonized with the ground reality- by the taking the common man's plight into active consideration- by bridging the gap between, the ruler and the ruled, the industrialists, the government and the people affected by industrialization. Like so many industrial belts, "Kalinga Nagar" looks for such a harmony that can enable the local inhabitants to contribute their best, by standing on their own and being the beacon of progress and prosperity. This book highlights such seminal issues, for due deliberation...
Millions of cubic meters of sediments are dredged every year for maintenance of canals and harbors. Dredged materials should be relocated in the original water body, but treatment or controlled disposal are necessary if contamination levels are not compatible with relocation. Sediment remediation results in greater technical problems and in higher costs compared with soil one due to specific properties of sediments (high moisture content, large amount of fine-grained particles, high organic matter content, possible presence of different types of pollutants etc.). In this work, technologies for the remediation of contaminated sediments have been investigated. The main experimental activities have been done on a new treatment system based on Stabilization/Solidification (S/S) and subsequent thermal desorption. Experimental activities were carried out on sediments polluted by mercury and petroleum hydrocarbons sampled from some Italian National Priority Sites. Chemical oxidation and reduction treatments were also investigated on sediments contaminated by petroleum hydrocarbons, PAHs and PCBs from industrial canals of Porto Marghera, Venice (Italy) and of New York City (USA).
This book focuses on the main push and pull factors that underlie the relocation process of industrial activities towards outside of Istanbul as well as beyond the provincial boundaries. In order to show this, a case study was conducted in Gebze Organized Industrial Zone (GOIZ) because 1/100.000 scale Environmental Management Plan of Istanbul has determined GOIZ as the potential area where the firms can relocate. The case study covered 37 firms which constitute the total number of firms relocated from Istanbul. Results of the study show that traditional location factors such as transport, site and premises are the most important factors that motivate firms to relocate from Istanbul to the GOIZ. However, contemporary factors are not much explanatory in case of the GOIZ.
This book explores the development and transformation of an industrial cluster in Turkey and investigates the causes and consequences of industrial decline and local economic restructuring in the case of Denizli textile cluster. Book manifests that quota-free regulations of trade and relocation of production have been shaping a fierce global competition by which employment, supply and marketing relations change dramatically at the world scale and Turkish textile and garment industry has been losing its growth dynamics under the pressure of these competitive conditions. In this process of industrial decline, Denizli has locked to a passive exporter role. This passive exporter role disables cluster to adopt innovative product strategies and to shift production to other regions where cost cutting opportunities are provided. Industrialists decrease production costs through informal employment, decreasing wages and overtime work which exacerbate decent working conditions. However, although survey results point out locked industrial dynamics, Denizli still has the potential of regional development thanks to its entrepreneurial spirit and rising other local economic sectors.
