Lefebvre for Architects

Meanwhile, Henri Lefebvre's conception of 'space' as the fundamental category of politics and of the dialectic itself-the one great prophetic vision of these last years of discouragement and renunciation-has yet to be grasped in all its path-breaking implications, let alone to be explored and implem

Paris est-elle la ville la plus polluée du monde ?

Le message lancé sur le réseau social Tweeter le 18 mars selon lequel ce jour-là, à la veille du printemps, il n'existait pas dans le monde de ville plus polluée que Paris a marqué les esprits. Son auteur : une entreprise française qui préparait le lancement d'une application mobile sur la qualité d

Properties and structure of hard coals from the borehole Niedobczyce IG-1 in the Rybnik Coal District, Upper Silesian Coal Basin, their petrographic and group constituents. 2. Variations in petrographic composition of the coals along the depth of borehol

Characteristic parameters are given for coal samples from the borehole Niedobczyce IG-1 ranging from gas-flame (611-Ⅶ) to orthocoking (435-VB) types (described in part in the preceding paper) (Fuel Proc. Technol. 41 (1995) 207-220), including the petrographic composition and change trends in this co

Fabrication of oil-in-water nanoemulsions by dual-channel microfluidization using natural emulsifiers: Saponins, phospholipids, proteins, and polysaccharides

Nanoemulsions are utilized within the food, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries because of their unique physicochemical properties and functional attributes: high optical clarity; prolonged stability; and, enhanced bioavailability. For many applications, it is desirable to utilize natural i

Won't Back Down

Few things rankle american conservatives like the concept of international law. The idea that foreigners - a Belgian, say, or heaven forbid an Iranian or a Russian -might have something to say about the legality of actions taken by a U. S. citizen is regarded as anathema. Hence Washington's refusal

Feeding Iberian pigs with acorns and grass in either free-range or confinement affects the carcass characteristics and fatty acids and tocopherols accumulation in Longissimus dorsi muscle and backfat

The experiment was undertaken to provide information on the influence of grass intake in a high fat diet based on acorns, in either free-range or confinement, on the carcass yield and characteristics, and on the accumulation of fatty acids and tocopherols. Groups raised free-range or with acorns and

Managing the threat from weather and outside force using ILI

WEATHER AND OUTSIDE FORCES are a threat to many pipelines. Pipelines can be loaded by external forces caused by different types of events, including settlement, wash-out/flooding, subsidence, landslides, earthquakes, and human activity adjacent to the line. In some cases the effect can be immediate.

Optimal Feed-in Tariff Schedules

We analyze the design of optimal feed-in tariff schedules under production-based learning. We examine least cost policies in a simple two-period model that focuses on bringing down the levelized cost of renewable technologies to a predefined target under two well-known dynamics: learning-by-doing (L


Der Verlust der kindlichen Unschuld, die Veränderung von Körper und Geist und die schmerzhafte Erkenntnis, ab sofort selbst verant-wortlich zu sein: Der Wendepunkt zwischen naiver Verspieltheit und erwachsener Geradlinigkeit manifestiert sich modisch in jugendlich anmutenden Entwürfen für Frühjahr/S

Good advice

Since its election two years ago, the UK government has sent out mixed signals on science and technology. Budgets for the grant-giving research councils have been maintained, but other areas of research spending have been cut. Meanwhile, the potential of science and innovation to help pull the econo

Hysteresis Modulation of Multilevel Inverters

The hysteresis modulation for power electronic converters is attractive in many different applications because of its unmatched dynamic response and wide command-tracking bandwidth. Its application and benefits for two-level converters are well understood, but the extension of this strategy to multi
