Redesigning cities : principles, practice, implementation by Jonathan Barnett( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In Redesigning Cities, Jonathan Barnett explains the five essentials of urban design: fostering a sense of community, creating livable neighborhoods and workplaces, reducing traffic congestion and providing parking that complements rather than undermines urban living, encouraging social equity, and achieving sustainability by preserving and restoring the natural environment." "Of course, to be influential, design must be incorporated into the everyday routines of urban development. Barnett explains how to create institutions - both inside and outside of government - that will help make the "designed metropolis" a reality. He also reveals techniques, materials, and technologies that should be known (but often aren't) to planners, public officials, concerned citizens, and others involved in the business of development."--BOOK JACKET
FOSTER CARE: Recent Legislation Helps States Focus on Finding Permanent Homes for Children, but Long-Standing Barriers Remain( )

While the annual number of adoptions increased by 57 percent since ASFA was enacted, changes in other foster care outcomes and the characteristics of children in foster care cannot be identified due to the lack of comparable pre- and post-ASFA data. Foster care adoptions increased from approximately 31,000 in 1997 to over 48,600 in 2000, continuing a trend of increasing finalized adoptions that started before ASFA. However, data limitations make it difficult to determine either ASFA's role in this increase or changes in other foster care outcomes. For example, reliable pre-ASFA child welfare data for several states are available from the University of Chicago, but they cannot be matched against the post-ASFA data available from HHS due to differences in measurement techniques. Nevertheless, examination of HHS data between 1998 and 2000 provides insight into the characteristics and outcomes of children in foster care after ASFA was enacted. For example, children who left foster care between 1998 and 2000 spent a median of nearly 1 year in care. Of these children, those who were adopted spent more time in foster care-a median of approximately 3 1/2 years. Children most frequently returned home after a stay in care, but approximately 33 percent of children who reunified with their families in 1998 re-entered foster care within 3 years. Although these data illustrate the experiences of foster children since ASFA, recent improvements in HHS data make it difficult to determine if changes observed after 1998 are the result of changes in data quality or actual changes in the outcomes and characteristics of foster children
Against the tide : how a compliant Congress empowered a reckless president by Lincoln D Chafee( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this smart, candid, and surprising political memoir, Lincoln Chafee offers a behind-the-scenes look at the first six years of the Bush Administration from the vantage point of one of the few Republican moderates in the Senate. When Senator Chafee (R-RI) went to Washington, he encountered a Republican Party drifting so far to the right it no longer stood for the mainstream principles that united Americans. Instead, under the direction of George W. Bush, the Party had fallen victim to extremism. In the face of this trend, Chafee stood fast as one of the most liberal Republicans in the Senate, seeking to cut across partisan lines at the very time that they threatened to irrevocably divide the nation. A political iconoclast, Chafee was the only Republican senator to have expressed support for same-sex marriage; the only Republican to vote in favor of reinstating the top federal tax rate on upper-income payers; the only Republican in the Senate to have voted against authorization of the use of force in Iraq; the only Republican to vote for the Levin-Reed amendment calling for a nonbinding timetable for a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq; and the only Republican to vote against Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito. Chafee favored increased federal funding for health care, supported affirmative action and gun control, supported women's reproductive rights, and endorsed federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. Sometimes referred to by conservatives as a RINO (Republican in Name Only), Chafee turns the tables on the right and asks why it has enabled Bush Jr. to pull the GOP and the nation away from traditional principles of fiscal conservatism, respect for our environment, and aversion to foreign entanglements. Unabashedly frank, Chafee's memoir recounts his political journey from small-town mayor to a voice crying from the congressional wilderness. He offers a forward-looking assessment of what comes next for the Republican and Democratic parties, and he also addresses the potential rise of a third party within the void created by bipartisan extremism. Most important, Chafee sounds a wake-up call to his Party, and to all Americans, by challenging our government to strive, as Abraham Lincoln once articulated, "to elevate the condition of men."
