A smart laboratory for the redevelopment of A.T.E.R. settlements in L'Aquila
Maria Cristina Forlani
Techne : Journal of Technology for Architecture and Environment , 2012,
Abstract: The research proposes the development of the heritage of social housing as a public experiment to measure up to the quality parameters required for the achievement of a ‘European model of the city.’ The goal is configuring a development that can return, or provide, the liveability to the settlements considered, conscious of the territorial reality characterized by widespread housing system and consistent with the evolving needs (social, economic and environmental) and the emerging socio-economic and environmental criticalities. The work is developed from knowledge of the settlement and the territorial system connected, as the basis for prefiguration of a scenario in which you identify a few privileged areas of action for the main urban and territorial dynamics, the management of ‘flows’, and new areas of discussion related to the problem of time, communication, mobility and logistics. You configure structural and managerial innovations (enhancement of territorial potentialities and integration of productive sectors; building cycle based on the recovery and rehabilitation). A ‘closed loop system’ where urban regeneration is powered and built from local resources.

Abstract: Economic ventures concentrated inside these urban clusters in a short span of time, and they registered a spectacular evolution, compared to the neighboring areas. Intensification of the linkages between cities with more than 300,000 inhabitants in Romania and the surrounding areas led to the individualization of territorial systems apart, with a spectacular evolution of economic-social processes, which turn those systems into the most dynamic territorial structures. The present study means to identify the causes of those complex processes within emerging territorial systems, the manner of functional organization of the space, and the causes that determine the spectacular evolution of the economic processes within emerging systems. Special attention was paid to the implementation of infrastructure projects, and to the manner they influenced the dynamics of the entrepreneurial sector.

La politique de la ville : une trajectoire de développement urbain durable ?
Mélanie Goffi,Ari Brodach
Développement Durable et Territoires , 2005,
Abstract: La politique de la ville en France valorise une approche stratégique multiforme des difficultés urbaines, dans une démarche de participation des habitants. La similitude de ses objectifs avec ceux du développement durable est frappante. Il appara t dès lors pertinent d’engager notre réflexion sur la politique de la ville comme une stratégie de développement durable des quartiers en difficultés. Nous proposons ainsi à travers cet article un essai de définition du quartier en développement durable, tant dans son concept que dans sa mise en uvre, en nous basant d’une part sur l’analyse de la démarche de participation dans la politique de renouvellement urbain en France, et d’autre part sur la représentation du territoire comme un écosystème. French urban policy is aimed at implementing a transversal understanding of urban problematics using a participative approach. In that sense its objectives are very much interconnected with those of sustainable development. We can therefore consider urban governance policies as strategies supposely focused on the sustainable development of deprived neighborhoods. Through this article, we intend to define what the sustainable development means at the scale of a neighborhood i.e. what are its objectives and how to implement it. We firstly analyse the participatory process in the French urban policy. Second, we engage our reflexion on the ecosystemic understanding of a sustainably developing neighbourhood.
Common Origin, Common Power, or Common Life: The Changing Landscape of Nationalisms  [PDF]

Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2012.23006
Abstract: Socio-territorial psychic constructs, such as national identities, are perhaps the most important psychic phenomena for political science, with their strength so consequential for wars and inter-ethnic conflicts. The construction of the EU has faced scholars and practitioners with two identity-related problems: (i) whether the socio-territorial identities can be conceptualized as being multi-layered (nested, hyphenated, with non-conflictual relationships among the components), and (ii) whether the higher levels of these identity constructs can be confined to civic aspects (e.g. to a Habermasian constitutional patriotism), as opposed to traditional nationalisms relying on assumptions of common origin, and shared culture. The most entrenched classification of nationalisms relies on an obvious difference between the kinds of nationalisms endorsed by the Irish and Germans, on one hand, and the French and white immigrant countries like the US, on the other hand. These versions are generally labeled “ethnocultural,” involving the consciousness of a shared ancestry and history, and “civic”, relying on the idea of belonging to the same state. My argument is that a schism within the “civic” approach to nationalism can theoretically be expected and empirically supported on the basis of the ISSP 2003, Eurobarometer 57.2 and 73.3 surveys. These datasets confirm the existence of three principal components of nationalism, which can be labeled “ethnocultural”, “great-power-civic” and “welfare-civic”. While the great-power-civic approach is concerned with and takes pride in the country’s military strength, international influence, sovereignty, and national character, the welfare-civic approach takes a more civilian stance and it is concerned with common rights, fair treatment of groups, social security, and welfare within the country. In addition, support has been found for the assumption that people tend to construct their supra-national identity layer according to the molds for their national identity.
Las marcas territoriales como alternativa para la diferenciación de productos rurales
Aranda,Yesid; Combariza,Juliana;
Agronomía Colombiana , 2007,
Abstract: the globalization enforces the trade of agrarian products and services to face a high competition every time the frontiers disappear. following that tendency, the markets must be analyzed starting from the local one towards the global one; in such sense, it is necessary that the products associated with the territories develop differentiation strategies to be used in commercial terms on the markets. the experiences obtained during the last years worldwide have shown how the territories face the globalization using the collective construction and development denominations of origin and shared brands that can be seen as territorial brands, which are used as value aggregations typical for the products to be trade. this paper analyzes the main aspects to be considered in the construction and development of territorial brands, such as norms and values, innovation and territorial identity. some experiences and successful cases that have used the territorial identity as a strategy for the differentiation of rural products are also discussed. some ref lections and challenges are proposed for the development of public policies that could faci litate the col lect ive construction of territorial image in colombia.

Abstract: The effect of bavistin and the ethylene inhibitor (silver thiosulphate) on shoot regeneration using nodal explants of Asclepias curassavica (L). has been investigated. Among the different concentrations studied, highest number of shoots was obtained on MS media with 200 mg/L bavistin. Among the varying concentrations (10-100 μM/L) of silver thio-sulphate tested, highest number of shoots was obtained on MS medium amended with 60 μM/L silver thiosulphate without growth regulators. This study also establishes the stronger cytokinin like activity of bavistin. Effect of different growth additives like coconut milk, ascorbic acid and casein hydrolysate were tested on direct shoot regeneration. Among the different growth additives tested casein hydrolysate showed better and reproducible result at 0.025% in combination with 3 mg/l KN + 0.5 mg/l NAA. Antioxidants, activated charcoals and polyvinyl pyrrolidone were used to remove phenolics. Activated charcoal removed the phenolic exudates completely at 0.025% and prevented the browning of media and thus enhanced the frequency of regeneration (85%). The microshoots developed through in vitro regeneration were transferred to rooting media containing IBA alone and in combination with KN and the highest number of roots was observed on MS medium with IBA 1 mg/L + 0.2 mg/L KN.

Abstract: The HA is present in almost all vertebrates and plays a critical role in tissue development and cell proliferation, it has been demonstrated to promote wound healing and involved in angiogenesis and inflammation. Also polynucleotydes (PN) have proved to promote the “in vitro” growth and activity of human fibroblasts and osteoblasts, to increase reparation on UVB damaged dermal fibroblasts and seems to promote proliferation of human pre-adipocytes. Several in vivo studies have demonstrated the PN effect also in vivo, inducing an increase of angiogenesis and healing process. In this paper we have evaluated the effect of a mixture of Polynucleotides (PN) and entire Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on cultured human fibroblasts by analyzing cell growth. Different mixture have been tested and it has been demonstrated that the presence of HA even at low concentration (1 mg/ml) determine an increase of PN activity up to 20%. Furthermore, the addition of HA 1 mg/ml to PN 100 μg/ml induces a cell growth rate comparable to that exerted by PN concentration of 12 μg/ml.

In the present study, dynamic performance of single bed desiccant regeneration system has been investigated experimentally. The desiccant bed operates as an adsorber and then as a regenerator, intermittently. In the experimental work of this investigation, Silica gel is used as a desiccant material. In the regeneration process, hot air from an air heater is blown through the bed using an air blower. The performance of desorption process at different conditions of flowing air is demonstrated. The experimental tests were carried out at different conditions of inlet air and initial bed parameters. Temperature and humidity of air at inlet and exit of the bed were measured. The obtained results showed that hot air with an inlet temperature ranging from 40°C to 75°C could release a notable amount of water from the desiccant bed. The relation between the studied parameters during the desorption processes is correlated. Results also show that the “Rehabilitation period” in desorption process should be eliminated to decrease the desorption time and it could be eliminated if the hot air mass flow rate is greater than 1.92 kg/hr per kg of silica gel.
