Where Do We Stand on Locating the Self?  [PDF]
Jakub Limanowski, Heiko Hecht
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2011.24049
Abstract: The subjective location of the Self in the body is a traditionally problematic question, and it can only be addressed from the first-person perspective. However, this does not preclude an empirical approach to the question. In the present study, we examined whether a large sample of participants would be willing and able to determine the perceived location of their Self. The main goal was to assess current beliefs about the nature of the Self and its assumed relation to specific bodily organs. Eighty-seven participants indicated the center of their Self by placing crosshairs on human silhouettes and abstract, non-human silhouettes with varying anatomy. Results show a clearly dominant role of the brain and the heart for Self-location in humans, but only of the brain for Self-location in abstract creatures. Moreover, results reveal that people believe there is one single point inside the human body where their Self is located.
Past, Present and Future: Urgency of Dealing with Climate Change  [PDF]
Alan D. Hecht
Atmospheric and Climate Sciences (ACS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/acs.2014.45069
Abstract:

This paper gives an historic perspective on 10 critical phases and actions in advancing an understanding of climate change and taking appropriate domestic and international action. Credit goes to atmospheric scientists for their committed efforts to understand, model and measure the impacts of climate change. Today, greenhouse gases are at a record level and little doubt remains that greenhouse gases (GHG) warm the atmosphere and that human-made climate change is real. Recognizing the urgency of responding to climate change, the 2013 US Climate Action Plan aims to cut carbon emissions and prepare to deal effectively with the economic, social, and environmental impacts of climate change. Many US states, Tribes, and local communities have also begun to take action to reduce GHG emissions and adapt to the impact of climate change, especially on disadvantaged communities. While recognition of the urgency of action on climate change is growing in government and in large parts of the business and financial sector, it has taken over 40 years to get to this point. While an understanding of the reality and impact of climate change has grown, significant efforts to reduce the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and stabilize global warming have not occurred. The problem that society faces is not the absence of scientific knowledge, but rather the need to reduce GHG emissions and create resilient and adaptive responses to climate change. This paper concludes that future successes will need more effective collaboration between government, business, and society to address climate change and greater public understanding of the impacts of climate change on human health and economic well-being.

De caza con el rey(1)
Romy Hecht
ARQ , 2010,
Abstract: El paisaje es intervenido para volver a lo natural, con el objetivo de ser utilizado por los reyes en las temporadas de caza. Forzadamente se introducen especies de flora y fauna en un lugar para configurar jardines que hoy reconocemos como parques. Las diferentes capas de la historia se superponen y configuran un territorio particular. The landscape is intervened to return to its natural state, with the objective of being utilized by the kings in hunting season. Species of flora and fauna are forcibly introduced in a place to create gardens that we now recognize as parks. The different layers of history are superimposed and configure a particular terrain.
(Online-)Beratung soziotechnisch betrachtet
Maike Hecht
E-Beratungsjournal , 2010,
Abstract: Online-Beratung hat sich in der vergangenen Dekade von einem exotischen zu einem weitgehend anerkannten Angebot vieler Beratungsstellen gewandelt. Im Zuge dieser Institutionalisierung wurden Anwendungsgebiete, Qualit ts- und Kompetenzanforderungen intensiv diskutiert, was in der Etablierung erster Standards und Ausbildungsprofile mündete. Im Gegensatz dazu hat sich die eingesetzte Technik und ihre Gestaltung in den vergangenen zehn Jahren nur wenig ver ndert – wenngleich gerade das Internet als ein hochdynamisches Medium gilt, das sowohl auf der technischen als auch auf Seiten der Nutzungsgewohnheiten in dieser Zeit durchaus einen Ver nderungsprozess durchgemacht hat. Dieser Artikel betrachtet Online-Beratung aus einer Entwicklerperspektive und lenkt den Blick auf Alternativen zur derzeitigen starken Orientierung an den etablierten Tools E-Mail, Chat und Foren. Er schl gt eine ausführliche soziotechnische Anforderungsanalyse vor, die eine genaue Erhebung der Bedarfe des sozialen Systems ebenso enth lt wie eine detaillierte Auseinandersetzung mit den besonderen Eigenschaften des Mediums Internet und ihrer m glichen Nutzung in der und für die Beratungsarbeit.
The New Rurality: Globalization, Peasants and the Paradoxes of Landscapes
Susanna Hecht
Desenvolvimento e Meio Ambiente , 2008,
Abstract: Deforestation captures most of the headlines, but there are also processes of forest expansion that are widespread in Latin America. This paper explores why this process is so invisible and some of the theories that have been used to understand woodland recovery. The article then examines a series of case studies. Globalization plays an increasingly important role in structuring rural economies. This paper analyzes how global integration of many types, ranging from remittances, state transfers, skilling, markets, and ideologies of identity and territoriality produced forest recovery in peasant landscapes.
