For the Palestinians who live in the narrow coastal strip of Gaza, the Israeli invasion of December 2008 was a nightmare of unimaginable proportions: In the 22-day-long action, 1,400 Gazans were killed, several hundred on the first day alone. And yet, while nothing should diminish Palestinian suffering through those frightful days, it is possible something redemptive is emerging from the tragedy of Gaza. For, as Norman Finkelstein details, in a concise work that melds cold anger with cool analysis, the profound injustice of the Israeli assault was widely recognized by bodies that it is impossible to brand as partial or extremist. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and the UN investigation headed by Richard Goldstone, in documenting Israel's use of indiscriminate and intentional force against the civilian population during the invasion (100 Palestinians died for every one Israeli), have had an impact on longstanding support for Israel. Jews in both the Unites States and the United Kingdom, for instance, have begun to voice dissent, and this trend is especially apparent among the young. Such a shift, Finkelstein contends, can create new pressure capable of moving the Middle East crisis towards a solution, one that embraces justice for Palestinians and Israelis alike. This edition has been revised throughout and includes an extensive afterword on the Israeli attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, which resulted in the deaths of nine activists and further strained the loyalty of many of Israel's traditional allies around the world. It also contains a brand new appendix in which Finkelstein dissects the official Israeli investigation of the flotilla attack. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Pile.

Emerging trend of supplementary prescribing in the United Kingdom ab 28.9 EURO
This book investigates the economic relationships between population, wages and labor productivity. In particular, we aim at studying the demographic link between real wage and population dynamics. An inverse relationship between population growth and wage evolution prevailed during the so-called "Malthusian era", until the Industrial Revolution, when the increased productivity allowed a real wage growth even if the population was rising as well. Empirical evidence confirms this trend in the case of the United Kingdom and, partially, of Italy. However, in Switzerland, it seems that the rise in productivity was not able to counterbalance the downward pressure on wage due to workforce abundance.
The Government of the United Kingdom launched the Help to Buy scheme as a response to the persistent mismatch in housing supply and demand along with the consequent trend of ever rising house prices. In the book on hand the different components of the scheme are described and their official aims are revealed. These are contrasted with the real effects the scheme has on the residential property market. It is further evaluated whether Help to Buy has the intended impact and therefore is an appropriate measure to narrow the gap between housing supply and demand in addition to making home ownership more affordable. In this context, a cost-benefit analysis is undertaken and the scheme's scientific verification is assessed. Suggestions are presented on how to better target the scheme and alternative measures to tackle the problems on the housing market are developed. Finally, a recommendation for the most appropriate transition strategy after the expiration of Help to Buy is made and an unconventional view on the relevance of a high home ownership rate for an economy is expounded.
To assess how stream flow in Gilgel Abbay River Basin will be affected by climate change, the HadCM3 model, developed at the Hadley Centre in the United Kingdom, was used to generate medium-high and medium-low emission scenarios in this study. The statistical downscaling model was used to generate future possible local meteorological variables in the study area. The down-scaled data were then used as input to the Soil and Water Assessment Tool hydrological model to simulate the corresponding future stream flow regime in Gilgel Abbay River Basin. Three benchmark periods simulated were 2011 2040 (2020s), 2041 2070 (2050s), and 2071 2099 (2080s). The time series generated by HadCM3 and statistical downscaling method indicate a significant increasing trend in both maximum and minimum temperature values, and a decreasing trend in precipitation. The hydrologic impact analysis made with the downscaled temperature and precipitation time series as input to the SWAT model suggested an overall decreasing trend in annual and monthly stream flow in the study area, in three benchmark periods in the future. This should be considered by policymakers of water resources planning and management.
Sex education at schools has been a topic of constant controversial discussion for many decades. A number of studies focus on quality and extent of sex education in Austria, suggesting approaches and improvements of all kinds. Living in a globalized world, it seems natural to ask how sex education is carried out in other European countries. The reason why England has been chosen for this study is easily explained. The United Kingdom is the country with the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Western Europe in 2010. This trend has been observed for many years and could not be reversed so far. It goes without saying that sex education and teenage pregnancy are topically related. This book deals with sex education in England and focuses on students aged 11 to 16. A co-educational secondary school in West London has been selected as case study for a common English comprehensive school.
Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Demographics, Urban Management, Planning, grade: 1.5, University of Westminster, language: English, abstract: In recent years the privatisation of public space has become the subject of much discussion and debate among critics of today's urban development. In the United Kingdom and throughout the world, the appearance of our cities is being transformed by public space privatisation. In other parts of Europe this topic is becoming a very contemporary and controversial issue as well. As one of the biggest cities in Germany, Hamburg shows processes of privatisation of public space. Its current HafenCity project reveals one of the biggest regeneration projects managed from and financed by private and public sources.What do we mean by the privatisation process and what are its benefits and disadvantages toward the quality of urban living?Privatisation describes the process of change within the management and ownership of open spaces. It is perceived as a part of Post-modernism and the post-modern city, where the "city provides the context for the social, economic and cultural changes brought about by the globalised new economy" (Minton, A. (2006) p. 5). Corporate governance in shopping malls, business parks, entertainment complexes and business improvement districts can be seen as part of this progression. The trend towards community or joint private ownership of assets such as community centres and parks is an element of the progressive privatisation of public spaces which reduces the pool of openly shared public spaces in towns and cities. Membership passes and fees can be used to regulate who uses the facility and how the spaces are utilised.Traditionally we differentiate public spaces in terms of the rules of access, the source and nature of control over entry and rules of use. Therefore a place is public when anyone can enter it and no restrictions, other than Common Law and public safety to behaviour or use of the place is given. Public space is commonly understood as a state owned open space free of regulations, which this essay will discuss.
The number of women, of working age in the United Kingdom (UK), that are actively choosing entrepreneurship over corporate management has increased. Understanding the entrepreneurial motivations behind this trend is important for academia, policy-makers and female entrepreneurs worldwide. The main assumption is that women are pushed or forced into entrepreneurship by factors such as the gender pay gap and glass ceiling effect. However, findings from a comparative study between British and French entrepreneurs show that this assumption is more of a myth that needs to be laid to rest and that women today possess a strong entrepreneurial drive fuelled by their need for achievement, need to empower others as well as other motivators not previously associated with female entrepreneurs. Two new categorizations pertinent to female entrepreneurship (i.e. career change and identity change) were also unearthed.
