High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Seattle SuperSonics relocation to Oklahoma City was a successful effort by the ownership group of the Seattle SuperSonics to move the team to Oklahoma City. The team began play as the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2008-2009 basketball season after becoming the third NBA franchise to relocate in the past decade. After failed efforts to persuade Washington government officials to provide funding to update KeyArena, the SuperSonics' ownership group, led by Howard Schultz, sold the team to Professional Basketball LLC (PBC), an investment group headed by Oklahoma City businessman Clayton Bennett. After failing to persuade local governments to fund a $500 million arena complex, Bennett's group notified the NBA that it intended to move the team to Oklahoma City and requested arbitration with the City of Seattle to be released from its lease with KeyArena. When the request was rejected by a judge, Seattle sued Bennett's group to enforce the lease that required the team to play in KeyArena through 2010. On July 2, 2008, a settlement was reached that allowed the team to move under certain conditions.

This study is based on the documentation of some 2,700 graves from Uelzen-Veerßen, Lüneburg-Oedeme, Bad Bevensen and other sites in the Ilmenau area. Their description and chronological classification on the basis of finds made from pottery, glass, bone, antler, ivory, resin, rock, and metal form the core of the thesis. Other topics are the horizontal stratigraphy as well as the shape and equipment of graves. The transition from the earlier to the later Roman Iron Age is marked by significant changes as to burial customs and the relocation of many cemeteries. Since the 4th century A.D. urn graves were the dominant burial type with only few cremations with a container of organic material and, since the 5th century, also some inhumations. The Ilmenau Group is characterised by scarce imports and relatively homogeneous “hummock graves” [Buckelgräber], tumuli with a central cremation and sometimes a ring ditch usually interrupted at the south. Funeral rites for infants and numbers of grave goods varied on a local basis. All cemeteries ended around A.D. 500 with graves of the 6th/7th century being extraordinarily rare, although pollen analyses imply settlement continuation into the 6th century A.D.

Jewish Elderly in the English-Speaking Countries

Jewish elderly are among the most diverse and culturally heterogeneous people belonging to the aged population anywhere. Their great diversity and conflicting approaches to subjects affecting their health and well-being are familiar problems in services development, in social policy, and in services delivery. At the same time, this diversity is a source of fascination for practitioners, policy makers, leaders of religious and secular institutions, and scholars in gerontology and ethnicity. Ideas about serving the needs of this segment of society are eagerly sought by both the lay and the professional communities. This is the first annotated bibliography to deal with the approximately one million Jewish elderly in the English-speaking countries and Israel, and it offers the reader an up-to-date survey of published material. Covering the latest findings from gerontological research, the book addresses outstanding issues in health and welfare, mental health, and support systems utilization, and provides a comprehensive treatment of the characteristics, traditions, customs, languages, organization, and historical backgrounds relating to the Jewish aged. 'Jewish Elderly in the English-Speaking Countries' encompasses many of the aspects of living in different cultural environments, and identifies a wealth of information on demographics, immigration and settlement, out-migration and relocation, adjustment to changing environments, political participation, attitudes and values, and methods of intervention on behalf of Jewish aged. This exhaustive study will be immensely useful to gerontologists engaged in cross-cultural research, and it will serve as a valuable guide to Jewish religious and charity leaders, senior citizen community centers, sociologists, anthropologists, and practitioners in all areas of human development.

Amhara migrants from different parts of the Amhara National Regional State are systmematically traced in this study, as they go through the process of migration, settlement, conflict, displacement, and resettlement. The study is located in the East Wollega Zone in west-central Ethiopia; and is based on primary data collected in field research in 2003 and 2004 based on survey research methods as well as focus group discussions and key informant interviews. The period covered is from the Imperial Era until 2000/2001. The author's perspective is multi-causal and avoids working with one dominant approach. Migration, he shows, has multiple causes including social, economic, political and ecological factors. He carefully applies push/pull theory to organize the various migration factors taking into account the fact that this might over-simplify the analysis. His account of the settlement, adaptation and relations between the Amhara migrants and the local Oromo communities describes how migrants established social bonds with local Oromo communities.Later ethnic and resource-based conflicts arose pitting the Amhara migrants against the local Oromo communities which resulted in thousands of migrants being forced out of the area. More than 12,000 Amhara settlers were displaced. Their relocation and the problems which they encountered are discussed and the book concludes with policy recommendations for future population movements and relocations.

Winner of the 2015 Rachel Carson Prize presented by the Society for Social Studies of Science Residents of a small Louisiana town were sure that the oil refinery next door was making them sick. As part of a campaign demanding relocation away from the refinery, they collected scientific data to prove it. Their campaign ended with a settlement agreement that addressed many of their grievances—but not concerns about their health. Yet, instead of continuing to collect data, residents began to let refinery scientists' assertions that their operations did not harm them stand without challenge. What makes a community move so suddenly from actively challenging to apparently accepting experts' authority? Refining Expertise argues that the answer lies in the way that refinery scientists and engineers defined themselves as experts. Rather than claiming to be infallible, they began to portray themselves as responsible—committed to operating safely and to contributing to the well-being of the community. The volume shows that by grounding their claims to responsibility in influential ideas from the larger culture about what makes good citizens, nice communities, and moral companies, refinery scientists made it much harder for residents to challenge their expertise and thus re-established their authority over scientific questions related to the refinery's health and environmental effects. Gwen Ottinger here shows how industrial facilities' current approaches to dealing with concerned communities—approaches which leave much room for negotiation while shielding industry's environmental and health claims from critique—effectively undermine not only individual grassroots campaigns but also environmental justice activism and far-reaching efforts to democratize science. This work drives home the need for both activists and politically engaged scholars to reconfigure their own activities in response, in order to advance community health and robust scientific knowledge about it.
