Sixteen-year-old Paul Porter's relocation to Pennsylvania is a temporary move during his dad's deployment. Or so he and his brother think, until devastating news lands on their doorstep. Paul's new home with the Muellers provides solace, especially in the form of Rachel, his friend and confidante. Their abiding friendship deepens as they work side by side to uncover what could be lost treasure. Will they acquire the strength of character and virtue to take only what rightfully belongs to them or are they in way over their heads, with more than a few lost artifacts at stake? Themes include premarital chastity and overcoming temptation. "When a young man or woman recognizes that authentic love is a precious treasure, they are also enabled to live their sexuality in accordance with the divine plan, rejecting the false models which are, unfortunately, all too frequently publicized and very widespread." Letter of His Holiness Pope John Paul II to the young people of Rome, Sept 8, 1997 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Bittancourt.

The professional insight underlying this work is to provide a link between research and theory and practice documented as case studies from projects in Brazil. The Castanhão Water Resources Complex represents a successful outcome of an essentially participatory experiment with a bottom-up approach where the local communities and all stakeholders played a key role.In this text there is an emphasis on the new approach , strongly linking hydraulic engineering (hard component) and social well being (soft component) as a process . A special focus is on the relocation and resettlement operations of communities.A set of procedures and measures are developed and proposed in this work. A project cycle methodology is presented as a logical sequence of steps. Monitoring evaluation and feedback methodologies are developed applicable to Project Affected People-PAP with respect to irrigation systems performance and rural development programs aimed as viable economic options and livelihood improvement. Impoverishment, risks and reconstruction models are discussed as a conceptual frame and are instrumental in providing measures to least affect the PAP's.
Sustainability is one of today's major public concerns. Urban sprawl, pollution and consumption of non-renewable resources indicate that transport and land use of cities worldwide is not sustainable. Urban planning has become increasingly complex. Decision support tools are essential to help to achieve objectives. Land use and transport form a linked dynamic system. Therefore integrated land use and transport models are the appropriate tool. The book describes the development and use of the integrated, dynamic land use and transport model MARS (Metropolitan Activity Relocation Simulation). The underlying hypothesis is that cities are self-organising systems and that the principles of Systems Dynamics and Synergetics can be applied. Causal loop diagrams are used to develop a qualitative model. A quantitative model is built and written into code. A comparison between historical data and model results demonstrates the usefulness of MARS. A user friendly interface is introduced. The results from three case studies from Vienna, Madrid and Hanoi are presented. The book is aimed decision makers, transport planners, researchers, lecturers as well as the interested public.
Youth growing up in postwar areas face tremendous obstacles in an all spheres of life. This study examines the role of participation in identity formation among young people in Croatia whose lives have been affected by war and forced relocation. Turniski presents an alternative to the medical and pathology models prevalent in war and postwar research which portray youth as passive victims. Her research utilizes a sociocultural approach and investigates the long term effects of war on youth, their environment, the structures within which they live and the society as a whole in order to illustrate how these young people understand their complicated life situations and circumstances. The study focuses on the experiences of youth and their contexts and in doing so contributes to an understanding of the processes that make up the successful transition to a peaceful postwar society. Insights from the experience of Croatia may then be applicable to other situations in which similar social transformations are taking place.
This book starts from the premise that the mode of production and its related relations of production are fundamental to understanding economic, social and political processes that occur in society. The central social cleavage in a capitalist society is between those who own and control the means of production, i.e. the bourgeoisie, and those hired to use those means of production, i.e. the proletariat. This fundamental contradiction has a structuring effect and influence on economic conditions and activities. This book seeks to explain how the class structure that prevailed in Dysselsdorp at the time of the 1972 land dispossession came into existence and what the dynamics were between the different classes and fractions of classes. It also attempts to clarify the processes of class formation, location, dislocation and relocation that underlined land possession and dispossession. Finally, the book unpacks four models of land restitution that the Dysselsdorp community adopted and sheds light on how they impact on class formation, differentiation, location, consciousness and its prospects for social cohesion.
Deliberate self-harm (DSH) refers to intentionally self-inflicted injuries, and is mainly explained by abuse or neglect, severe psychopathy or at least a trait of a mental disorder. Most functions of DSH serve intrapersonal motives but interpersonal reasons are also found. These range from seeking for attention, pity and sympathy, to benefits like care, help or avoidance of unpleasant tasks or persons. To the latter belongs the deterrence of assaulters, a benefit, especially desirable for prisoners due to the hostile and brutal environment of prisons. This book scrutinizes two hypotheses of avoidance of attacks in prisons by the use of episodes of DSH as costly signals building upon the signaling theory developed in economics and biology. The first hypothesis is that DSH is an honest signal of fearlessness intended to repel other inmates from attacking. The second deals with the avoidance of assaulters by signaling madness via DSH to achieve relocation into an asylum. The underlying motive in this case is the need of protection, and thus, DSH serves as a cry for help to prison authorities. All necessary requirements of both hypotheses are examined, provided with evidence from existing research and analyzed with the help of mathematical models.
