Arrival city : how the largest migration in history is reshaping our world by Doug Saunders( Book )

29 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Swedish and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As vibrant places of exchange, arrival cities have long been indicators of social health. Whenever migrant populations are systematically ignored, we should expect violence and extremism. But as Saunders demonstrates, when we make proper investment in our arrival cities, a prosperous middle class develops
The myth of the Muslim tide : do immigrants threaten the West? by Doug Saunders( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the author of prize-winning Arrival City, a controversial and long-overdue rejoinder to the overblown fears of an Islamic threat that have spread throughout America and Europe and threaten our basic values. The July 2011 shooting spree in Norway shocked the world, especially when it emerged that the killer had written a 1,500-page manifesto denouncing the impact of Islam on Western society. While Anders Breivik was almost certainly insane, he was motivated by an extreme opposition to Islam that has pervaded segments of Western culture. In The Myth of the Muslim Tide, Doug Saunders offers a brave challenge to these ideas, debunking popular misconceptions about Muslims and their effect on the communities in which they live. He demonstrates how modern Islamophobia echoes historical responses to earlier immigrant groups, especially Jews and Catholics. Above all, he provides a set of concrete proposals to help absorb these newcomers and make immigration work. The most important trend of the twenty-first century will be a massive global migration to cities, much of it by Muslims. Rather than responding with fear and resentment, this book shows us how to benefit from this inevitable change"--

"A third of the world's people are in the midst of the largest population move in human history, as the last of the word's rural populations abandons agriculture and moves to the urban areas of the developing world and of the wealthy West. Both a groundbreaking work of reportage and an exciting, vivid travelogue, Arrival City sees award-winning journalist Doug Saunders offering a detailed tour of the key points in the Great Migration, and considers the actions that have turned this enormous population shift into either a success or a violent failure"--Publisher description
Arrival city : the final migration and our next world by Doug Saunders( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A third of the world's people are in the midst of the largest population move in human history, as the last of the word's rural populations abandons agriculture and moves to the urban areas of the developing world and of the wealthy West. This shift is at the heart of the most dangerous and violent conflicts today in North America, Europe and Asia. It also has enormous potential to renew the world's economies and bring a final end to mass poverty - if conflict and clashes can be avoided. It is taking place not in the cities we know but in a new type of space, on the margins of our great cities, that we rarely notice: the 'arrival city'. These spaces are becoming the power centres of the new era. It is from these, the new home of an enormous floating population of 2 billion people, that most of the world's most serious crises and explosions of violence are emerging. In "Arrival City" - both a groundbreaking work of reportage and an exciting, vivid travelogue - award-winning journalist Doug Saunders offers a detailed tour of the key points in the Great Migration, and considers the actions that have turned this enormous population shift into either a success or a violent failure
Maximum Canada : why 35 million Canadians are not enough by Doug Saunders( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Award-winning author and Globe and Mail feature columnist Doug Saunders argues we need 100 million Canadians if we're to outgrow our colonial past and build a safer, greener, more prosperous future. It would shock most Canadians to learn that before 1967, more people have fled this country than immigrated to it. That was no accident. Long after we ceased to be an actual colony, our economic policies and social tendencies kept us poorly connected to the outside world, attracting few of the people and building few of the institutions needed to sustain us. Canada has a history of underpopulation, and its effects are still being felt. Post-1967, a new Canada emerged. The closed, colonial idea of Canada gave way to an open, pluralist and connected vision. At Canada's 150th anniversary, that open vision has become a fragile consensus across major parties and cultures. Yet support for a closed Canada remains influential. In a rare and bold vision for Canada's future, Maximum Canada proposes a most audacious way forward: To avoid global obscurity and create lasting prosperity, to build equality and reconciliation of indigenous and regional divides, and to ensure economic and ecological sustainability, Canada needs to triple its population--and this can be done without a large immigration increase."--

Modeling and simulation of Canadian Forces operational energy consumption : in support of the defence operational energy strategy development by Ahmed Ghanmi( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a framework for analyzing the Canadian Forces (CF) operational energy demand. Operational energy is the energy required for training, moving, and sustaining military forces as well as fueling tactical power generators and powering weapons platforms. The study examined the CF operational energy for expeditionary operations and focused particularly on fuel demand. A fuel consumption prediction model was developed and a typical operational scenario was constructed using historical deployments to forecast operational energy demand. A Monte Carlo simulation framework was also developed to simulate various operational characteristics such as location and duration of deployments and fuel consumption rates. The study indicated that the most prevalent fuel consumption in CF expeditionary operations is aviation fuel, followed by fuel for ground systems, and ships. It also revealed that particular attention should be given to the employment phase of operations for potential fuel consumption optimization. The study provided insights and better understanding of the energy consumption patterns of CF expeditionary operations in support of the Canadian Defence Operational Energy Strategy development
Evaluation of a helmet-mounted auditory system for gunfire localization by Craig Burrell( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Localization Array Processor (LAP) is a system for acoustic localization of sources of rapid onset, short duration impulsive sounds, such as result from gunfire or explosions. The auditory environment is monitored by an array of helmet-mounted microphones. We report the results of a series of laboratory experiments to assess the performance characteristics of a prototype version of the LAP. Three tests of the system were carried out. First, its operation in backgrounds of stationary noise was studied. It was found that the system's performance degraded rapidly as background noise levels increased, such that moderate levels of noise prevented the system from consistently identifying impulsive sounds in the environment. Second, tests of the direction-finding capability showed that the system was able to correctly identify the direction to the sound source in nearly 50% of cases, but that the angular resolution was not competitive with similar systems described in the literature. Finally, the recovery time of the system in a rapid fire scenario was studied, and it was found that it could detect an impulsive sound and refresh to a listening state in a few hundred milliseconds. In general, the system's performance was satisfactory. Under optimal conditions it succeeded in identifying the azimuthal direction of origin of impulsive sounds, though the angular resolution provided by the current direction-finding algorithm is too coarse

Affordable care act and premium variation rules: could certain consumer segments be disproportionately profitable to insurers? by Doug Saunders( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) prohibits health insurance companies from using health status as a factor for pricing consumer premiums in the individual market starting in 2014. Insurers in the individual market will only be able to vary premiums based on age, smoking status, geography, family size and benefit level. Economists have questioned whether market distortions may still remain where certain consumer segments are more profitable than others. Specifically, young smokers could be disproportionately profitable to insurers. This paper tests this hypothesis using 2008 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) data and multivariate regression analysis to explore the relationship between smoking status and expected medical costs across different age cohorts. Two models were estimated using a survey response variable for smoking indicating whether the respondent was a current smoker or not. The first model only controlled for those factors that insurance companies may use to vary premiums. The second model controlled for a larger number of individual characteristics theoretically associated with medical spending

Intégration les raisons du succès( Visual )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quelles sont les conditions d'une intégration réussie ? Pour ce documentaire allemand, qui s'appuie sur le travail du journaliste canadien Doug Saunders (co-réalisateur), tout se joue au niveau des quartiers où se concentrent les populations fraîchement immigrées. Sont-ils des "tremplins", qui vont permettre aux arrivants de bénéficier à la fois d'un solide réseau de solidarité et de perspectives économiques ? Ou se résument-ils à des ghettos, d'où il est quasi impossible de s'extraire ? A travers des parcours d'immigrés retracés à Istanbul, Paris, Berlin, Londres ou Amsterdam, le film dessine les contours des villes modèles et pointe du doigt les contre-exemples. (Télérama)
