Essay from the year 2014 in the subject Art - Architecture / History of Construction, , language: English, abstract: Sustainability is a universal phenomenon that addresses the need to protect the environment for current, as well as future generations. It deals with issues ranging from the vast social needs, infinite environmental requirements to massive financial obligations. As such, governments worldwide are taking precautionary measures to ensure that the current development policies are conforming to certain suitability standards. The standards, according to the United Nations, must be economic, socially acceptable and, most importantly, protect the environment; not only for current but also for future generations.Therefore, one of the strategies international bodies and local governments are using to promote sustainability is the introduction of standard measures in the construction sector. Currently, there is a global upsurge in construction companies that mainly address the concept of sustainability, and United Kingdom (UK) is no exception. For a fact, older buildings are being refitted to meet current sustainability drivers or codes while newly built blocks are required to meet these standards as well. For instance, offices, education centers, hospitals, rental apartments and many other social amenities, both older and newly built, are required to meet these sustainability commitments. As such, proprietors and building owners have been forced to refurbish and refit their structures, for example with lagging material to save energy.
All Hands on Deck tells the story of three teenagers living in the Caribbean. They refurbish and abandoned sailboat and set out on a series of sailing adventures. In 60 pages, the reader becomes part of the crew and helps make decisions resulting in the potential for dozens of such adventures. All Hands on Deck is akin to a board game in book form. Seamanship points are earned along the way, thus making the book educational in nature by surreptitiously teaching sailing concepts. To enhance the educational nature of the book, a glossary of sailing terms is included. Reviewers comment: '... strikingly illustrated...' '... really fun... ' '... a children's book that adults will want in their libraries.'

When Los Angeles novelist Tony Cohan and his artist wife Masako visited central Mexico one winter, they fell under the spell of a place where the pace of life is leisurely, the cobblestone streets and sun-splashed plazas are enchanting, and the sights and sounds of daily fiestas fill the air. Awakened to needs they didn't know they had, they returned to California, sold their house, and cast off for a new life in San Miguel de Allende. On Mexican Time is Cohan's passionate, evocatively written memoir of how he and his wife found a new home - and a new lease on life - in this charming 16th century hill town. In an alternately humorous and poignant narrative, Cohan recounts how they absorb the town's sensual ambience, eventually find and refurbish a crumbling 250-year-old house, and become entwined in the endless drama of Mexican life. From peso devaluations and water shortages to the local legend of a man who was "killed twice" and the romantic entanglements of their handyman, On Mexican Time captures the indelible characters, little tragedies, and curious incidents of life in a distinctive Mexican town. At the same time it enfolds listeners into the delights of one of the world's most desirable travel destinations.Brimming with mystery, joy, and hilarity, On Mexican Time is a stirring, seductive celebration of another way of life - a tale of Americans who, finding a home in Mexico, find themselves anew. 1.

First published in 1931, Robin Flower's enchanting lyric poetry combines with his translations from the old, medieval and modern periods of Irish literature. 'Mr Flower's poetry has loveliness and spontaneity. Though, as his sonnets prove, he can respond to the spell of rich lines and moulded thought, his whole bent is lyrical and individual. Beauty and love are almost all his song - they have the spring-like clearness of the Irish poets whom he translates.' - Glasgow Herald 'He is of the company of those scribes whose glosses it has been his delight to refurbish.' - Spectator 'To my mind, one of the most beautiful books of poetry published this century - here is a collection that will creep into people's hearts like the memory of wind, of birds singing in childhood, of first meetings, and the last words before death.' - Richard Church, Fortnightly Review THE AUTHOR Robin Flower was Deputy-Keeper of Manuscripts in the British Museum from 1929 to 1944 and a lifelong visitor to the Blasket Islands in Kerry. His books include the Catalogue of Irish Manuscripts in the British Museum (Vol.II, 1926), The Western Island (1944), The Irish Tradition (1994) and a translation of The Islandman (1934) by Tomass O Criomhthain.
Shelter and employment in low-income settlements are the two important issues for the reduction of urban poverty in developing countries. Researchers in this field are concerned in urban informal sector but the focus hardly fell on the income generating work associated with home in low-income settlements. The local urban intervention initiated by government with the help of foreign donors and NGO s concentrates on infrastructure development but failed to explore the potentiality of HIG. This book provides a view on conceptualizing home based income generation (HIG) for the urban poor households and transforming their life space i.e. spatial setting to carry out day-to-day activities for household reproduction into economic space i.e. spatial setting for income generating activities. The findings of this study recommend few guidelines that might help to refurbish conventional ideas of intervention for the urban poor community.
'Equal parts baseball and mystery are the perfect proportion.' --Robert Parker The Big Dead Machine It's 1921, and journeyman infielder Mickey Rawlings finds himself on yet another team, the Cincinnati Reds, who everyone remembers for 'winning' the 1919 World Series against the infamous Chicago Black Sox.

But before the tour can reach first base, someone strikes Ollie out with a well-placed bullet. Since murder seems to follow Mickey around like a hitting slump he can't quite quit, he starts snagging clues. Soon enough he finds his hands full with a forgotten murder, breaking and entering, and an angry girlfriend. But when the game of his own life is on the line, Mickey Rawlings is a born survivor. At least he hopes. . .
