Diese militante Bildsprache, die dort stattfindet, gibt es ja viel in linken Kontexten — auch gegen queere Personen oder Personen of Color gerichtet. Wenn Pegida sagt, wir haben Angst, haben sehr viele Personen, die von Rassismus betroffen sind, auch Angst. Vor Leuten von Pegida. Aber wessen Angst wird ernst genommen?
Es ist immer die Angst der privilegierteren Leute. Nur dass sich die Drohungen da dann zum Beispiel gegen einen gemeinsamen Feind, etwa Nazis, richten. Die Kritikfrage ist sehr schwierig. Ich kritisiere ja auch gerade dieses Buch. Egal, was du machst, du wirst es falsch machen. Es gibt diese toxische Kritikkultur in unterschiedlichen politischen Communitys, nicht nur in der queerfeministischen. Es gibt einige Leute, bei denen du seit Jahren schon versuchst, eine Kritik zu formulieren, die aber nichts lernen. Was macht man mit diesen Leuten? Abwehr und Lernunwilligkeit sehe ich halt in sehr vielen linken Kontexten.
Mai das offizielle Programm. Und drei oder mehr Elternteile gelten rechtlich gar nicht erst als Familie. Die Ehe zwischen und die leibliche Elternschaft von Mann und Frau bleiben die heiligen Orientierungspunkte des deutschen Familienrechts. Auch gesellschaftlich haben noch nicht alle die Vielfalt von Familienkonzepten realisiert. Mai, steht bei der Kundgebung um VertreterInnen der evangelischen Kirche, der Gewerkschaft ver. Lassen Sie sich inspirieren! Wir freuen uns auf Ihren Besuch.
Nuri Kiefer ist Direktor der 1. Handelt es sich dabei um einen Einzelfall? Betroffene wenden sich selten an Organisationen und Institutionen. Die Dunkelziffer ist hoch. Im Reinickendorfer Fall kamen die Vorbehalte vornehmlich von muslimischen Eltern. Haben auch andere den Generalverdacht: Ich habe den Eindruck, dass Homophobie wieder zunimmt.
Seid doch etwas angepasster. Lesbische Kolleginnen sind weniger Anfeindungen ausgesetzt. Heterosexuelle Eltern arrangieren sich da eher. Offene Diskriminierung findet relativ selten statt, weil durch gesetzliche Regelungen Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, Anm. Wie gehen Betroffene damit um, wenn sie diese Erfahrung machen? Das ist vielen ganz wichtig. Raten Sie Ihnen zum Coming-out am Arbeitsplatz? Raten kann man nur, dass sich jeder selbst klar werden muss: Wird in der Ausbildung dieser Konflikt angesprochen? Leider noch zu wenig.
Wo das thematisiert wird, herrscht dann auch ein weniger homophobes Klima. Dirk Ludigs ist freier Autor und Journalist. Ja, irgendwie liegt es an alledem — auch! Drei Viertel der Befragten gaben an, Diskriminierung erlebt zu haben. Cameron empfiehlt hier dringend, mehr eigene Netzwerke aufzubauen.
Um die 90 Unternehmen werden hier auf arbeitssuchende Queers treffen. Derselbe Veranstalter schreibt am 1. Das braucht gesetzlichen Druck. Getan habe sich daraufhin nicht viel. What began as a drawing workshop at the queer refugee shelter in Treptow was subverted into a defiant deflection of the Western gaze.
Riri Hylton spoke with the curators of this illuminating group show. And what happens when this lack of consideration is confronted? The Lightest Shade of Aflatoon. If you look closely, you can make out the purple paint on the ceiling and walls of the exhibit, throwing shade, questioning the neutrality of the gallery space and its attempts to erase history and context. How much room is there for subversion?
How much of it becomes incorporated into the whiteness or institutional structure itself? In this clip, she explores themes like patriarchy, white hegemony and class privilege with festival goers. The Lightest Shade of Aflatoon re-contextualizes the art space, bringing into view a lived and historical reality, one so often distorted by complacent and lazy narratives. Aflatoon does just that and, true to queer non form, leaves you with more questions than answers.
Eurovision Song Contest, Celebrate Diversity — am Mai steigt der Eurovision Song Contest in Kiew. Dass die im Rollstuhl sitzt, machte die Sache nicht besser. Sie wie seine Bitch. Das macht alles absolut keinen Sinn. Vorausgesetzt, es ist nach drei Minuten vorbei. Oder doch einfach nur langweilig? Das ist schon mal die halbe Miete. Denn eines ist klar: Francesco Gabbani hat Charme, Charisma und das Allerbeste: Das war beim ESC zwar noch nie essenziell, dennoch: Liebe Lesben, ganz stark sein. Monat die Wahl zum Mister Gay Berlin! Da isse wieder, die Gute. Auch in der Jury: Irgendwas mit Stil ist denen wohl nicht eingefallen.
Da wird wie in jedem Jahr irgendwer gewinnen und dann unmittelbar in die Bedeutungslosigkeit abrutschen — so erging es allen vorherigen GewinnerInnen wie z. Warum will sie das nur so unbedingt? Mein Beruf ergibt doch irgendwie Sinn. In diesem Sinne, bleibt schweinisch. Kommentare waren gestern, heute keift man wieder live. Jemanden auf Facebook zu blocken ist ja die neue Ohrfeige.
Alles neu macht der Mai! Partyveranstalter Bork Melms scheint in die Fleischbranche gegangen zu sein. Apropos Dampfschwein, Bork Melms veranstaltet ja in diesem. Szene machen Vom Deutscher Evangelischer Kirchentag — Worum geht es bei dieser Veranstaltung? Wie kommt es, dass es bei einem Kirchentag so viele queere Veranstaltungen gibt? Wir arbeiten seit mit dem Evangelischen Kirchentag zusammen. Diese Zusammenarbeit wurde immer intensiver.
Dem Orgateam stand dann frei, ob das Programm so umgesetzt wird oder nicht. In diesem Jahr sind wir, genau wie , Teil der Projektleitung und konnten uns dadurch viel einfacher. HuK wird in diesem Jahr Wie werdet ihr das feiern? Mai beim Kirchentag feiern. Und was sind weitere Ziele? Solche Probleme gibt es heutzutage in evangelischen Gemeinden kaum noch.

Damit ist er nicht allein. Und auch um den Erfolg im Verlauf des Trainings. Und das ist es gar nicht. Vielleicht auch ein Grund, warum beide Ebenen so eng miteinander verbunden sind: Das kann mir egal sein. Dennoch schaffen sie es, mit ihrem Aussehen gesellschaftliche Konventionen herauszufordern. Bei Adrienne wurde damals eine schwere Krankheit diagnostiziert. Androgyn seien sie vorher bereits gewesen, beide bezeichnen sich als genderqueer.
Dass ihr Aussehen Menschen provoziere, vermutet sie, habe vor allem mit dem Verwischen der Gendergrenzen zu tun. Zum Beispiel habe sie sich einmal mit zwei Freundinnen nach dem Feiern das Logo einer Biersorte auf das Handgelenk stechen lassen. Auch hier gehe es viel um Subkultur und das Aufbrechen von Genderrollen.
Das finde sie nicht o. Ist mein Schwanz zu klein? Und dann auch besser zu merken, was man gerade braucht. Ohne das gleich zu bewerten. Xposed Queer Film Festival zu sehen. Xposed International Queer Film Festival, Die Rolle, mit der ich in Spanien meinen Durchbruch als Schauspieler schaffte, war ein extrem cooler und spannender Charakter. Insofern kann ich schon nachvollziehen, dass Lito versuchte, jemand anders zu sein. Gleichzeitig war das aber auch der Grund, warum seine Performances als Schauspieler unauthentisch wirkten. Damit verliert er aber auch seinen Job.
Wie geht es jetzt nach seinem Coming-out weiter? Lana wollte hier sehr realistisch die Lebenswirklichkeit eines Schauspielers darstellen. Und welche Auswirkungen hat das auf die Beziehung zu seinem Freund Hernando? Kannst du etwas zu den Dreharbeiten sagen? Es sind die authentischsten und liebenswertesten Menschen, die sich nicht in Konflikt mit sich selbst befinden. Welchen Einfluss hatte das auf eure Arbeit? Wir haben Lilly sehr vermisst. Lana hat einen wirklich tollen Job gemacht, dennoch fehlte Lillys Energie.
Man wird sehen, wie sich das auf die Serie auswirkt. Toro — Stier — nennen ihn seine Freunde. Interessierten sei der Film mit Meryl Streep ans Herz gelegt. Und nicht nur die alte Vertrautheit ist sofort wieder da, sondern auch die erotische Anziehung. Ihnen verdanke ich, einen so gut wie homofreie Zone.
Es war Liebe auf den ein paar zaghaft inszenierte Filmsekunden. Vor allem war dieses Alien ziemlich subversiv: Instinktiv habe ich wohl schon damals gewusst: Longtime fans will definitely find something to like. It's not a Drake cover, and it's not about getting caught on the U-Bahn without a ticket — but other than that, the lyrics leave things intriguingly vague. Who is controlling whom? To return the favor, the sisters came back to sing on Omnion: How does it sound, though?
Actually, also slightly badass, in an adult contemporary sort of way. Hamed Sinno has a soothing voice, and, aside from the Arabic lyrics, he brings to mind Peter Gabriel or Arthur Russell. In a bad way. Probably intended as an homage, it falls flat, which makes Mary's voice stick out that much more: Pollinator BMG , ab dem Das scheinen sie inzwischen auch. Verpackt wurden die erfrischend direkten Texte in mal zart, mal hart schrammelnde Gitarrenkaskaden und das druckvolle Schlagzeugspiel von Bandmate Liv Bruce.

How to be bad? Wie schlagt ihr da den Bogen? Von Britney Spears verwenden wir ein Interview, in dem sie krass in die Mangel genommen wird, weil sie angeblich eine. Am Ende des Besonders interessiert hat es uns, Bilder von Weiblichkeit zu zerlegen. Ja, schon — nur sind wir halt alle cis Frauen. Those are quite progressive ideas, but lesbihonest, the body producing them appears to be white, male and conventionally able.
But don't get the wrong idea about Every Body: We are also dealing with society as a whole, because the bodies we see onstage or in the media influences our ideas of normality. Originally commissioned by The Kitchen where it premiered in March, their piece finds inspiration in existential pivot points, mental wastelands and plastic wrap. Eine geht noch, mit Annie Heger Foto, li. Und viele hatten nie die Chance, sie kennenzulernen. Annie Heger ist da nicht weniger vage: Und ganz nebenbei wollen Heger und Maurischat auch noch den Beweis erbringen, dass die Chanson- und Kleinkunstwelt keineswegs ein von Natur aus schwules Ding ist.
Lesben und Glamour, das muss kein Widerspruch sein: Titel, die Zarah Leander bei jedem Konzert mit rollendem rrr gesungen hat und die heute noch von den wenigen existierenden Leander-Imitatoren geschmettert werden. Auch wenn ihr Repertoire nicht nur Leander umfasst, ist die schwedische Kontraaltistin doch das Zentrum ihrer Auftritte. In ihren Filmen war sie die bis zur Selbstaufgabe Liebende. Verbindungen zu der obersten Nazi-Liga wurden ihr allemal zur Last gelegt.
Dabei half auch Zarah tapfer mit. Aber es begann die erfolgreiche Zeit der Tourneen. Sind wir nicht alle ein bisschen Zarah? Auf die alten neuen Barrikaden Schon lange nicht mehr gab es so viele hitzige politische Debatten in der queeren Community wie heute. Zumindest ein Ausschnitt ihrer Stimmen.

Zog ich das Handy aus dem Bademantel, war meine Facebooktimeline voll mit den antischwulen Pogromen in Tschetschenien.
Und ich las derweil ein Buch, das den Rundumschlag wagt und versucht, all diese Enden zu fassen zu kriegen. Mutig, weil nicht komisch. Er begleitet vier Jungs aus der Gropiusstadt, die eine beknackte Idee haben: Autorin und Kolumnistin Rhyannon Styles. Juni erscheint ihre Autobiografie Wer ist deine Stilikone?

Neben Blowjobs von Heten gibt es auch lesbische Fingerspiele und schwulen Analverkehr zu sehen. Mehr oder weniger — die expliziten Bildausschnitte sind verpixelt. Plenty, but for the moment, let's focus on resilience, a most coveted characteristic. In soil, the resilience to accommodate new and returning life, the flora and fauna of our everyday existence.
In queerness, the resilience to operate within patriarchy. We owe the beauty of our spring to the health of our soil, much how we owe the vibrancy of queerness to the health of our community. Whatever it is, know that soil science is your path to success. Yes, qween, soil is alive!
Full of beautiful bacteria, fungi and other organisms. Ariane Krause, a soil scientist currently writing about sustainable soil management, recounts a message of Pachamama, the Andean Mother Earth deity: For the home and urban gardener, vermicomposting and bokashi composting are the best ways for you to make use of your kitchen scraps to create rich soil.
Worms such as red wigglers effectively digest your organic kitchen waste, to produce well-aerated, microbe-dense, water-retaining castings for soil. You care for them and they give you black gold in return. Or, bokashi, a Japanese technique, applies bacteria e. These microbes break down organic matter so the soil can uptake those nutrients.
Once fermented, between two and four weeks, this mixture can be introduced to a garden. The best way to start is to simply visit a local garden. Prinzessinnengarten in Kreuzberg, now awoken from the Winterschlaf, has worms available for you to explore vermicomposting at home. Peace of Land, a permaculture community garden in Prenzlauer Berg, could also be a great reference for knowledge seekers. They welcome the public by appointment basis and occasionally host workshops by community members.
You can also get connected online: Berlin's urban gardening scene is flourishing. English elsewhere On the Turkish referendum results: Interview with Molly Nilsson: But one notification in March was quite different: Excited about this new victory for the gay movement in Germany, I went on to read the article only to find out that it brought back some sad memories from Syria. The Guardian quoted Fritz Schmehling, a year-old Berliner, saying, "I don't want to die with a criminal record.
In Syria, Article of the penal code is a relic of the French occupation of the country. It prohibits "carnal relations against the order of nature". Although it wasn't strictly applied, the Syrian regime used it whenever it deemed suitable. In April , 35 gay men were arrested at a gay party in Damascus. The Syrian authorities detained those men for three months without pressing any charges, telling their families and employers that they were arrested for homosexuality.
The organizer was shown a record of every man who had a profile on a gay dating website. He was also warned that "the government will not condone any future gay parties in Syria". He reported that to me and a group of friends as well as an organization that facilitated his resettlement to the Netherlands. A dentist from a city on the Syrian coast was among the detainees, but he wasn't as lucky. After he was released, he couldn't handle the loss of his job and the social humiliation.
He committed suicide just before his 29th birthday. He was the first person I knew to be killed because of his sexuality. I felt that he was murdered by the Syrian regime. After those outrageous arrests, I started researching possible ways to challenge that archaic law. Those activities alerted the Syrian regime, which added me to its wanted list of dissidents.
I used to tell Berliners that the situation for gay men in Syria during those times was similar to that in Europe in the s and 60s. However, only a few could relate to that. Only "older" gay men who witnessed those anti-gay laws understood exactly what I mean by that analogy. Although the Cabinet has signed the bill, it will still take time to be applied. I join Schmehling and others in hoping that this happens during their lifetimes.
It will be great to witness their triumph, especially since the war in Syria has killed my hope that the same could happen to me. The Swedish singer met with Joey Hansom at Karstadt for a chat about her new record. The annual festival is back in its twelfth edition to once again delight a dedicated queer film fan base. Here are a few highlights. Now you're still cruising at album number eight. I said that after every album, but it's part of the process — to divorce yourself from something. Each time, I end up somewhere else. The cover artwork sticks to the usual black-and-white motif, but it's your first to show a 3-D perspective, rather than a flat image.
Before, I had never thought of the covers as rooms. They were surfaces, and the artwork was like a logo that you could project your ideas onto. This time, I felt the album was a room to be filled, rather than a surface. That's something I will carry with me into the next album, too. Another theme seems to be the power of love in the face of global darkness. I have a lot of faith in humanity. People are saying our times are so bad right now, but I generally have this Einstellung that things are always kind of the same. Things change a little bit, but people face the same basic problems.
Do you think time is cyclical rather than linear? We're always moving but we're always in the same spot. Things weren't better before, but they were also not worse. It's like a negative way of saying someone is optimistic. No, I've never heard it before, but this is what I'm defending. But that reality is just another cloud. You can choose which cloud to live in. It's like, whatever you believe will happen to you after you die will happen. If you believe you will go to heaven, you will go to heaven. If you believe in nothing, there will be nothing.
What do you believe? I haven't decided yet. I'm looking at some different options right now. I definitely believe in a sort of eternal life. Not that your own life goes on forever — but I don't believe in endings. A sizable chunk of its program is made up of short films in fact, the first six editions of the fest screened only shorts.
Xposed screens a number of feature-length films and documentaries as well. Of course, there are a few awaited guests, but the fest delivers a real treat by inviting Valie Export, whose considerable body of work reaches back to the late s. The Austrian feminist will be on hand at the fest for a screening at aquarium of her feature film debut Invisible Adversaries, about a Viennese photographer who uncovers an alien plot. An artist talk will follow. See for yourself how big queer statements can come from the little peeps.

Throughout this research, there is used the direct reference into both tangible and intangible cultural heritage, in terms of renewing the old city street on the basis of the unique brand strategy, the historical perspective that should characterized the street and up-to-date marketing concepts.
The case study of Lisbon downtown provides the example of such the integrated strategy that can be easily adopted by other cities to improve their images and increase both economic and social potential by attracting tourists and media interest. Effective environmental factors on geographical distribution of traffic accidents on pedestrians, downtown of Tehran City.
The aim of this study was to geographically analyse the traffic casualties in pedestrians in downtown of Tehran City. Study population consisted of pedestrians who had traffic injury accidents from April to March in Tehran City. Data were extracted from the offices of traffic police and municipality.
All pedestrian accidents including accidents were assessed in this study in which the site of accidents included arterial streets in Geographical units of traffic accidents in pedestrians had statistically significant relationship with the number of bus stations, number of crossroads and recreational areas. Neighbourhoods close to markets are considered as the most dangerous places for injury in traffic accidents. Child upbringing of women engaged in prostitution has been little explored.
Child upbringing beliefs, attitudes and practices regarding sexuality in prostitutes' children and adolescents were explored downtown in Bogota. Analytical-interpretive research included in-depth interviews and a focus group. There were ten women between 28 and 56 years of age. Core issues were their subjectivity as mothers, sexual development challenges, upbringing social and cultural conditions.
Structural, symbolic and economic violence are the main determinants of parenting. Sexual abuse and the possibility of pregnancy in their adolescent daughters are the most important concerns. In general, the participants share the same values and reproduce traditional ideals in gender and sexuality, which are transmitted and modeled from upbringing. This case study of recent efforts to deconcentrate poverty within the Skid Row area of Los Angeles examines processes of "weak-center" gentrification as it applies to a "service dependent ghetto," thus filling two key gaps in prior scholarship.
We document the collaboration between the government, business and development interests, and certain non-profit agencies in this process and identify two key mechanisms of poverty deconcentration: Following Harvey, we argue that these efforts are driven by pressures to find a "spatial fix" for capital accumulation through Downtown redevelopment. Data were gathered by means of biographic narrative interviews, direct observations and research-interventions.
The challenge has been to create a shared space for learning exchanges between two very different communities: Large-Eddy Simulation of pollutant dispersion in downtown Montreal: Evaluation of the convective and turbulent mass fluxes. Large-Eddy Simulation of pollutant dispersion from a stack on the roof of a low-rise building in downtown Montreal is performed. Two wind directions are considered, with different wind flow patterns and plume behaviours. The resulting mean concentration field is observed and analysed with.
The role of studies and analysis in the Berlin crisis. The question posed for this conference was whether military exercises, studies and analysis have made an appreciable difference in the policies associated with tactical nuclear forces TNF in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO. Some of the papers leave the impression that studies, analysis and military exercises have very little impact on the strategy, policy decisions and force posture of NATO tactical nuclear forces. The studies and analyses undertaken during the Berlin crisis suggest a very different conclusion: Whether one considers the changes to be positive or negative, the experience of the Berlin crisis suggests that studies and analyses had a tangible and direct impact both on contingency planning for the Berlin crisis specifically and on discussions of the role of tactical nuclear forces more broadly.
The results of these studies and analyses are discussed. Education through music--the model of the Musikkindergarten Berlin. In , the pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim initiated the Musikkindergarten Berlin as the first kindergarten in which music is not only used as an occasional add-on but as the central education medium for the child every day.
The skills of specially trained kindergarten teachers combined with regular visits by professional musicians of the Staatskapelle Berlin the Berlin State Opera orchestra form the basis of a new educational concept, in which children experience music in all its different aspects and in its unique capability as a transfer medium into all the other educational areas.
In this context, the method, the aim, and the experimental ground is not only education in or with music, but through music. This paper provides information and examples about first-hand experiences over the last six years. Impacts of urban sprawl on the area of downtown lakes in a highly developing city on central China.
Wuhan city in central China is full of water resources and numerous lakes are located.
"Schwelle zu strafbaren Inhalten überschritten"
Downtown lakes have significant ecological value and ornamental value for urban inhabitants in Wuhan. Under the rapid process of urban sprawl, downtown lakes are occupied by impervious areas. This research uses Landsat images to extract land uses from to in Wuhan city , and attempts to find out how urban sprawl affects the water body area decline in space. Two largest downtown lakes in Wuhan city, Donghu Lake located in central city and Tangxunhu Lake located in suburbs, are taken as case study area. A direction change index DCI is proposed to evaluate the changes of a specific land use in different directions.
The results reveal that two downtown lakes are undergoing rapid water body area decline from to , with decline rate are According to DCI, the water body reduce is highly correlated with built-up land increase in all direction. Moreover, it is found that in the Donghu watershed the north-west part suffered significant water body area decline, which is close to central city. While in Tangxunhu watershed, the area of water body declined in north-west, south-west and north-east part, and the area obstructed from central city by the lake was suffering less water body area decline.
It is concluded that the water body area of downtown lakes are highly affected by the process of urban sprawl, and the lakes in central districts trends to suffer higher descend than that of the downtown lake located in suburbs. Meanwhile, even for the same downtown lake, the area orientating and close to the central city may suffer more rapid decline than the area that does not orientate to the central city.

Berlin in Television Drama Series: Full Text Available Since the early days of film Berlin and the film studios in its suburbs was an important site of production. Throughout its history Berlin was and is a popular place for media productions with the city functioning as a text, full of meaning that turns into branded value.
The article will investigate the complex relationship of historical and societal events and Berlin as a production site and an imaginary landscape respectively cityscape. Based on the analysis of national and international drama series we will argue that the increasing importance of Berlin as production site and location goes hand in hand with an increasing mediated imagination of the city as a cinematic respectively televisual space that is able to represent past events such as the Nazi regime and the cold war and actual events such as organised crime, counter terrorist activities, and an intercultural life in a modern metropolis.

This study was undertaken for the purpose of analysing under the aspect of legal medicine, fatal accidents due to train surfing in the local transport system of Berlin S-Bahn and underground. The period of investigation was from through , with 41 train surfing accidents, among them 18 with fatal outcome.
Evaluation included those 14 deaths which were forensically autopsied. Also used were data obtained from the Berlin Transport Police Record. The casualties were aged between 13 and 25 years, most of them between 16 and The male-female gender ratio was Accidents occurred above all in the warmer season of the year, most of them between Most of the fatal accidents occurred to users of the Berlin S-Bahn network. Older train models were the preferred surfing objects due to their structural peculiarities. Collision with close-to-track obstacles and slipping from the train proved to be the major sources of danger.
An analysis of injuries revealed polytraumatisation but for one exception, with craniocerebral injuries being the most common and severest events. The longest survival time amounted to 24 h. As the psychosocial causes of high-risk behaviour of adolescents will hardly be controllable, withdrawal of technical, that is structural design possibilities appears to be the most important approach to prevention of accidents in the future. This demand is met by the new series of the Berlin S-Bahn. Solar thermal coldness in Rottweil.

The WTP will use the power produced by the proposed project to run process equipment, lighting, and Opportunities to learn and barriers to change: The project was aimed at developing a better understanding of the harms associated with crack cocaine smoking and determining the feasibility of introducing specific harm reduction strategies. Specifically, in partnership with the community, we constructed and distributed kits that contained harm reduction materials.
We were particularly interested in understanding what people thought of these kits and how the kits contents were used. To obtain this information, we conducted 27 interviews with women and men who used crack cocaine and received safer crack kits. Four broad themes were generated from the data: This project suggests that harm reduction education is most successful when it is informed by current practices with crack use. In addition it is most effectively delivered through informal interactions with people who use crack and includes repeated demonstrations of harm reduction equipment by peers and outreach workers.
This paper also suggests that barriers to harm reduction are systemic: Full Text Available The objective of this paper is to evaluate a popular shopping mall, named the CPC, focusing on its location, use, aesthetics and security.

To present statistical evidence regarding the relationship between the probability of experiencing symptoms or contracting a respiratory disease and factors such as exposure to pollution, susceptibility, and social coping among people inhabiting areas with particulate matter pollution. The study used unique information collected from a survey conducted on people in downtown Medellin who were exposed to this problem. This information was used to perform a descriptive statistic analysis and to build 27 probit models.
The dependent variables were: The results evidence that exposure is a key variable affecting the presence of respiratory symptoms or diseases vulnerability; however, exposed individuals may also experience health problems not only due to air pollution per se, but also to implicit personal and social conditions.

Dieser so entstandene ''Hybrid''-Prozess zeichnet sich nach wie vor durch eine - gegenueber dem Stirling-Modus lediglich leicht verringerte - mechanische Leistungsabgabe aus, zusaetzlich jedoch auch durch eine theoretisch zu dieser betragsmaessig gleichen, ueber den Arbeitszylinder bei ''kalter'' Temperatur aufgenommene Kaelteleistung. Er stellt somit ein integriertes System zur Kraft-Waerme- Kaelte -Kopplung dar, das durch einen einzigen thermodynamischen Prozess realisierbar ist.
Schaltet man diesem Prozess im warmen Temperaturbereich zusaetzlich einen weiteren, auf der Rueckseite des Arbeitskolbens liegenden Zylinderraum zu, so dass ersterer zu einem zweiten, doppelseitig wirkenden Verdraengerkolben wird, so erhaelt man schliesslich den als thermisch angetriebene Waermepumpe bzw. Kaeltemaschine bekannten Vuilleumier-Prozess, der im Idealfall keine mechanische Leistung abgibt oder aufnimmt. Am Lehrstuhl fuer Thermodynamik der TU Dortmund wurde in einem mittlerweile abgeschlossenen, von der DFG gefoerderten Forschungsprojekt eine Versuchsmaschine entwickelt und vermessen, die sich zwischen den drei beschriebenen Prozessen umschalten und so wechselnden Strom-, Waerme- und Kaeltebedarfssituationen anpassen laesst.
Dabei wurde zur Reduktion des experimentellen Aufwandes eine aehnlichkeitstheoretische Skalierung unter Konstanthaltung aller fuer den internen Gaskreisprozess relevanten dimensionslosen Kennzahlen durchgefuehrt. Die in diesem Beitrag vorgestellten experimentellen Ergebnisse beduerfen deshalb zwar einer Korrektur wegen einiger externer, nicht korrekt skalierbarer Reibungs- und Isolationsverluste, belegen aber dennoch, dass die Realisierung derart umschaltbarer Systeme zur dezentralen, bedarfsorientierten Energieversorgung von Gebaeuden in einer praxisgerechten Baugroesse und Leistungsklasse moeglich ist.
Bei koordiniertem Betrieb einer groesseren Zahl solcher Systeme - z. Investigations on medical film processing in the city of Berlin. An investigation on the methods of film processing in diagnostic radialogy departments can for instance be understood as a mere statistical representation of number and type of processing apparatus and film types, chemical methods and processing time, or it can be done as an attempt to objectively compare the film processing methods by means of a densitometric evaluation of equally exposed films of current usage within a given department.
Such a comparative evaluation has been suggested by the diagnostics experts of the Berlin association of medical physicists, who presented their proposals within the course of project planning talks for a planned field test with a phantom for X-ray diagnostics, to be carried out in Berlin. The absence of a universal definition up until now has led to a series of practical problems for a definitive diagnosis.
The purpose of the Berlin definition is not to use it as a prognostic tool, but to improve coherence between research and clinical practice. A series of 12 questions and subquestions was developed and the expert panel members were required to perform a systematic review to answer each question.
Following presentation at the Berlin meeting of the systematic review, poster abstracts and audience discussion, the summary Consensus Statement was produced. This paper elaborates on this process, the outcomes, and explores the implications for neurosurgeons in the management of sport-related concussion. Ecological monitoring for Berlin and its back country. In , the city of Berlin started the implementation of the 'monitoring program natural budget'. The aim of this program is the assessment of biological and ecological effects of atmospheric pollution as well as the analysis and evaluation of the functioning of the natural balance in pine forest ecosystems in the city area of Berlin and in the close vicinity.
The investigations should make temporal and regional statements possible. Techniques of active and passive monitoring are applied effect cadastre as well as extensive investigations in long-term observation areas at present pine forest systems. The ecosystem itself is in the foreground as a sensitive indicator for an existing atmospheric pollution load. The results should enable forecasts of the development of the related organisms and the ecosystems under the effect of anthropogenic load factors.
To Save a City: The Berlin Airlift, Berliners gainfully employed , the blockade threw some 10 percent out of work. Since the unemployed received a ration card, this factor had little effect Organization, these units employed large numbers of German laborers.
Similarly, the Forward Airfield Supply Organization accomplished all cargo handling in Mental constructs and the cognitive reconstruction of the Berlin wall. In this study of how to change people's conceptions of certain facts i. In the trial test, instead of designing a wall to enclose West Berlin , most people described and drew a short and straight wall that divided the city from north to south.
Two methods were created, based on two general information-processing components involved in problem solving, to study how people might repair their misconceptions by themselves. The do-it-yourself method consisted of providing people with the task of thinking about how to build the wall and then drawing it, instead of just asking them to draw it.
The distance-to-goal evaluation method consisted of asking the participants how the wall they had drawn would actually prevent passage from East Germany to West Berlin. The results showed that both methods had important effects in repairing misconceptions, but improvement in performance with the distance-to-goal method was less significant for those participants who were first provided the task of thinking about how to build the wall. These findings are consistent with the hypothesis that awareness of functional properties plays an important role in structuring and restructuring mental constructs.
As part of the proficiency training for the Radiological Mapping mission of the Aerial Measuring System AMS , a survey team from the Remote Sensing Laboratory-Nellis RSL-Nellis conducted an aerial radiological survey on December , , with the purpose of mapping natural radiation background and locating any man-made radioactive sources. The survey covered The flight lines over the surveyed areas are presented in Figures 1 and 2. A total of four 2. Water line and test line flights were conducted over the Lake Mead and Government Wash areas to ensure quality control of the data.
Data in the form of gamma energy spectra were collected continually every second over the course of the survey and were geo-referenced using a differential Global Positioning System. Collection of spectral data allows the system to distinguish between ordinary fluctuations in natural background radiation levels and the signature produced by man-made radioisotopes sources. Spectral data can also be used to identify specific radioactive isotopes. As a courtesy service with the approval of the U. SNAP's members are now made up of former research participants who participated in two heroin-assisted trials in Vancouver.
SNAP's research draws on research principles developed by drug user groups and critical methodological frameworks on community-based research for social justice. Seven major themes emerged from the analysis of the brainstorming and focus groups: They argue that permanent HAT programs should be established in Canada because they are an effective harm reduction. It must be added that in Prussia great importance was attached to stricter requirements for hygiene and ventilation than in Paris. This was clearly demonstrated barely in the construction of the pavilionhospital in Berlin -Friedrichshain with an extremely decentralized layout.
Similarily the acceptance of high-rise construction was, compared with Paris, considerably delayed on the German hospital scene. As a result, this conception of the structure, with an effective concentration of inpatient care in towers together with separate low-rise buildings for functions such as treatment and diagnosis, only gradually gained acceptance in Germany at the end of the s.
On the other hand, German architects such as Hermann Distel or Ernst Kopp , had already, indeed before the Second World War, promoted the high-rise type for inpatient care on theoretical grounds. In addition, two hospitals providing medical care within in Berlin , Martin.
Experiencing memory museums in Berlin. This research builds on and contributes to a number of emerging issues on memory studies, tourism perception and museum design: The main data facilitating the analysis is based on responses shared on TripAdvisor; the ca The measurements of 31 kinds of VOCs in the ambient air of a site were carried out in the downtown of Guangzhou by online method from November 5, to November 9, The ambient level and composition characteristics, temporal variation characteristics, sources identification, and chemical reactivity of VOCs were studied, and the health risk of VOCs in the ambient air in the study area was assessed by using the international recognized health risk assessment method.
Results showed that the mean and the range of the mass concentrations of 31 VOCs were The mass concentrations of 31 VOCs, and those of alkanes, alkenes, and aromatics all showed a changing trend of higher in the morning and in the evening, and lower at noontime. Vehicular exhaust, gasoline and liquefied petroleum gas evaporates were the main sources of VOCs with the volatilization of paints and solvents being important emission sources. Vehicular exhaust and gasoline evaporation were the main sources of VOCs leading to the formation of ozone. By comparing the corresponding data about health risk assessment of benzene compounds in some cities in China, it is concluded that benzene can impose relatively high cancer risk to the exposed populations in the ambient air of some cities in China.
Therefore, strict countermeasures should be taken to further control the pollution of benzene in the ambient air of cities, and it is imperative to start the related studies and develop the atmospheric environmental health criteria and national ambient air quality. In our sample we compared Berlin elementary school children to 17 children from East-Germany now living in Berlin and 25 immigrant children most oft them coming from Turkey and Poland.
Although many authors expected short-term disorders of adaptation, we found a constancy of psychiatric diagnosis in the migration group. We noticed important differences particularly in the new psychosocial situation of the former East German mothers, with many single-mother-families, where the mothers now were often unemployed.
Not what we expected: Pre-study on the Berlin -Budapest high-speed rail link; Hochgeschwindigkeitsverkehr: Vorstudie zur Strecke Berlin -Budapest. Fakultaet Bauingenieurwesen; Stephan, A. From the holistic perspective of the business evaluation and the expected economic impact, it can be concluded that there is a case for establishing a guided high-speed link between Berlin and Budapest and that the plan should be pursued further. Social science studies accompanying the two Berlin research projects for energy-oriented modernisation of domestic buildings; Sozialwissenschaftliche Begleitung der beiden Berliner Forschungsvorhaben zur energiegerechten Sanierung von Wohngebaeuden.
The initial and environment situations of the two apartment buildings in central Berlin and at Berlin -Marzahn are described including the structure of households. The procedure adopted in this social science project is also dealt with: The results of the survey among residents concerning satisfaction with redevelopment, thermal comfort prior to and after redevelopment, heating habits, and experience with automatic heating control are reported. Dabei wird Auskunft ueber die Struktur der Haushalte gegeben. Ebenso wird die Vorgehensweise des sozialwissenschaftlichen Projekts beschrieben: Die Ergebnisse der Bewohnerbefragungen zu Zufriedenheit mit der Sanierung, zum Waermeempfinden vor und nach der Sanierung, zu Gewohnheiten in der Heizperiode, sowie zum Umgang mit der Heizungsregelungstechnik werden dargelegt.

Individuality and modernity in Berlin: The demand to be recognised as an individual was central to metropolitan society, as were the spectres of risk, isolation and loss of agency. This was true under. Berlin - Through the massive retreat of its wealthy and academic bourgeoisie from the centre, Berlin became a bipolar city. On this side of the "railway ring", stood the.
It was a special conference as it addressed this topic only over a. The analysis of these museums, focusing on their narratives, design features and comments from visitors, will highlight a potential shift from the traditional object-focused museum, to a phenomenological subject-focused one. It will be argued, then, that the understanding and consumption of authenticity encompasses a very flexible definition, not only based on the nature of the objects exhibited, but on the production of authentic experiences.
Results of the Berlin summit conference. The article briefly explains the background of the Berlin summit conference as well as some results, as for instance the '' Berlin mandate'', or agreements concerning organisational structures or procedures like those termed ''joint implementation''. Culture and comorbidity in East and West berliners. Following the collapse of socialism, fluctuations in cardiac mortality rates in East Germany and a West-to-East cardiac health gradient became topics of interest.
Researchers suggested possible causes for these phenomena, including stress from postsocialism. I proposed that a cultural investigation of heart disease comorbid with depression could inform our understanding of the potential health effects of the postsocialist transition. I conducted ethnographic and survey research. In the study described here, I administered a depression scale CES-D and an ethnographically derived measure of cultural stress Good Life Survey to over East and West Berliners with cardiovascular disease. Comparison of the groups' depression means revealed no difference.
However, correlation of the Good Life Survey and the CES-D revealed unique profiles of cultural variables associated with depression in the two groups, suggesting that culture shapes depression and cardiac risk. I discuss the value of cultural studies to comorbidity research. It provides DC-magnetic fields up to 20 T, pulsed nondestructive fields of up to 60 T and megagauss fields of up to T using a single-turn coil generator for experimental application focusing on solid state physics.
Magneto-optical investigations are carried out in the MIR, NIR and visible wavelength range as well as transport and magnetization experiments. The laboratory will be closed in fall but its experimental facilities will be further accessible to the community in other labs.
When guiding in Berlin about the Holocaust or about the Cold War, tour guides often hear the phrase: Following from that popular sentiment it is argued that Berlin can be defined as a Partial Dark Tourism Destination. As such, it is further argued that Berlin is prone to an increase of socio-econom The Berlin tradition in Chicago: Franz Alexander and the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. Freud considered Franz Alexander, the first graduate of the Berlin Psychoanalytic Institute and an assistant in the Berlin Polyclinic, to be "one of our strongest hopes for the future. He was also a researcher in psychosomatic medicine, a prolific writer about psychoanalysis and prominent in psychoanalytic organizations.
As he proposed modifications in psychoanalytic technique, he became a controversial figure, especially in the elaboration of his ideas about brief therapy and the corrective emotional experience. This paper puts Alexander's achievements in historical context, draws connections between the Berlin and Chicago Institutes and suggests that, despite his quarrels with traditional psychoanalysis, Alexander's legacy may be in his attitude towards psychoanalysis, characterized by a commitment to scientific study, a willingness to experiment, and a conviction about the role of psychoanalysis within the larger culture.
The TU Berlin has developed a family of planetary rovers for educational use and research activities. The paper will introduce these cost-effective systems, which can be used for analogue mission demonstration on Earth. Specialist nectar-yeasts decline with urbanization in Berlin. Nectar yeasts are common inhabitants of insect-pollinated flowers but factors determining their distribution are not well understood.
Multivariate linear models were used to analyze the effects of all investigated factors on yeast occurrence per tree. Yeast distribution was mainly driven by host identity. The influence of the environmental factors NO2, height of construction, soil sealing strongly depended on the radius around the tree, similar to the distance of the sampled beehive.
Given that specialist yeast species gave way to generalist yeasts that have a reduced dependency on pollinators for between-flower dispersal, our results indicate that increased urbanization may restrict the movement of nectar-specialized yeasts, via limitations of pollinator foraging behavior. Designing and constructing the technical facilities for a historical building like the 'Spreespeicher' in Berlin is a difficult but interesting task. The building is owned by Universal Music.
Each department has its own office structure, and all offices and structures were integrated in a functional overall concept by the planners of Happold Ingenieure. Besonders, wenn der Nutzer Universal Music heisst: After the fall of the Berlin Wall and the breakdown of the East German Socialistgovernment, thousands of former contract workers from Vietnam stayedin the then reunified Germany.

Full Text Available Berlin Mitte is one of the most interesting parts of the city, located in the core of Berlin where every corner and stone can tell a story.
Mitte, the cultural center of Berlin is also known as the political and economic hub of Berlin. This paper explores the urban and historical image of two important parts of Berlin Mitte district: Many famous architects took part in numerous competitions regarding urban planning reconstructions of the famous Alex throughout the 20th century. A steady-state Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stoke computational fluid dynamics CFD investigation of boundary-layer flow over a major portion of downtown Abu Dhabi is conducted. The results are used to derive the shear stress and characterize the logarithmic region for eight sub-domains, where the sub-domains overlap and are overlaid in the streamwise direction.
They are characterized by a high frontal area index initially, which decreases significantly beyond the fifth sub-domain. The plan area index is relatively stable throughout the domain. For each sub-domain, the estimated local roughness length and displacement height derived from CFD results are compared to prevalent empirical formulations. Finally, the in-canopy wind-speed attenuation is analysed as a function of fetch. It is shown that, while there is some room for improvement in Macdonald's empirical formulations Boundary-Layer Meteorol Within the roughness sublayer, a properly parametrized Cionco exponential model is shown to be quite accurate.
Berlin and nuclear power. Courage to assume responsibility? On October 28, , the Kerntechnische Gesellschaft e. KTG awarded to Professor Dr. Juergen Knorr its 32 nd honorary membership in recognition of his untiring commitment and his decades of work for the peaceful uses of, and research into, nuclear power in Germany.
Between and the scientist, now retired, held the Nuclear Power Technology chair at the Technical University of Dresden and, temporarily, also headed the university's Institute for Power Technology at the same time. At the same time and beyond, until , Professor Knorr was a member also of the Board of the Deutsches Atomforum.
This supported the German economy in a situation which continued to be difficult. In his vote of thanks for the 32 nd honorary membership of KTG, Professor Knorr emphasized what he considered a key expectation of the re-evaluation of nuclear power by the new federal government: Creating framework conditions for a societal consensus that fair competition among conventional, renewable and nuclear power technologies will give rise to an optimum mix enabling sustainable development to be achieved.
US-amerikanische Soldaten in Ost- Berlin. To them as well as to the members of the French and British forces, the Berlin Wall marked the front line of the Cold War. At the same time, though, they were allowed to cross the border and spend their free time in East Berlin. Especially in the s and s, when the dollar was tumbling, American families took advantage of the favourable exchange rate and crossed the border for cheap shopping, dining and entertainment. The regime could also benefit financially from the Western tourists. This demonstrates the ambivalence of the Honecker era, the concurrence of an increased openness and internal erosion.
Von dieser Form des Tourismus konnte sie finanziell profitieren, versuchte konkrete Kontaktaufnahmen aber zu vermeiden. Diagnosing acute respiratory distress syndrome in resource limited settings: Although the Berlin criteria improved upon the validity and reliability of the definition, it did not make diagnosis of ARDS in resource limited settings possible. Mechanical ventilation, arterial blood gas measurements, and chest radiographs are not feasible in many regions of the world.
In , we proposed and applied the Kigali modification of the Berlin definition in a hospital in Rwanda. This review synthesizes literature from the last 18 months relevant to the Kigali modification. In the last 18 months, the need for a universally applicable ARDS definition was reinforced by advances in supportive care that can be implemented in resource poor settings.
Research demonstrating the variable impact of positive end expiratory pressure on hypoxemia, the validity of using pulse oximetry rather than arterial blood gas to categorize hypoxemia, and the accuracy of lung ultrasound support the use of the Kigali modification of the Berlin definition. Studies directly comparing the Berlin definition to the Kigali modification are needed.
Ongoing clinical research on ARDS needs to include low-income countries. Safe water supply without disinfection in a large city case study: Berlin 's water supplies originate exclusively from groundwater. For sustainable water management, river water is treated by flocculation and filtration and used either for artificial groundwater recharge rivers Spree and Havel or for bank filtration Nordgraben and Lake Tegel.
Drinking water chlorination was abandoned in Berlin West in , and in Berlin East in , following German unification. Chlorine consumption for the purpose of weekly performance checks in the chlorination plants of Berlin 's 11 waterworks and occasional chlorination within the pipe system following pipe burst events amounts to kg per year.
Based on the annual water demand of million cubic metres, this is equivalent to 0. In view of the low AOX content, a multiplication of bacteria within the pipe system can be expected to occur not at all or only to a small extent. Resource protection measures, filter backwashing and pipe system maintenance in observance of the relevant technical rules will continue to ensure that the quality of Berlin 's drinking water meets stringent hygiene requirements without chlorination.
The current study determines whether the formerly unsanctioned supervised smoking facility SSF -operated by the grassroot organization, Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users VANDU for the last few years-costs less than the costs incurred for health-care services as a direct consequence of not having such a program in Vancouver, Canada. Funding SSFs in Vancouver is an efficient and effective use of financial resources in the public health domain; therefore, Vancouver Coastal Health should actively participate in their establishment in order to reduce HCV and other blood-borne infections such as HIV within the non-injecting drug users.

En af hovedpersonerne i bogen er den store tyske neoklassicistiske arkitekt Carl Friedrich Schinkel. Zweiwegintegration durch zweisprachige Bildung? Ergebnisse aus der Staatlichen Europa-Schule Berlin. While there is no simple recipe of how to respond to the multitude of languages present in many European schools, this article presents a promising alternative to monolingual education. The focus is on Staatliche Europa-Schule Berlin SESB , a two-way immersion TWI model that unites children whose mother tongue is German with children whose mother tongue is another locally spoken language in one class and teaches them together in two languages.
Thus in this model, offered by 17 primary schools and 13 secondary schools in Berlin , pupils learn in two languages from and with each other. Based on a largely quantitative, quasi-experimental study with students, evidence is provided that there are a number of peace-linguistic benefits that can promote two-way social integration, besides fostering personal and societal multilingualism.
This suggests that TWI education as practised in Berlin could serve as an educational model for other multilingual parts of Europe. Challenging a Home Country: Based on documents published and unpublished, interviews, and conversations with former and current student activists, the paper scrutinizes the trajectory of activism of Indonesian students in the capital of Germany since the s and asks about the evolution of specific student organizations, the issues and topics they tackled, and their media and networking strategies.
These examples indicate the diversity of Indonesian student activists in Berlin that are nevertheless united in their aspirations to challenge politics back home. Using modeling and prompting to encourage appropriate responses, mothers took culture-specific directions during scaffolding that were in line with the broader cultural model as assessed by maternal socialization goals SGs. Whereas Berlin mothers prioritized autonomous SGs, Delhi mothers emphasized autonomous and relational SGs to similar degrees.
During scaffolding, Berlin mothers focused on maximizing positive affect and acknowledging the gift, whereas Delhi mothers prompted toddlers to acknowledge the giver more often. Furthermore, there were differences in toddlers' behavior in line with these culture-specific scripts guiding gift giving.
The Use of Berlin Questionnaire. Obstructive sleep apnea OSA has been associated with a high risk for traffic accidents due to excessive daytime sleepiness even in in-city drivers. In the present study, it was aimed to evaluate the rate of OSA symptoms and to identify risk factors associated with traffic accidents in in-city bus drivers. A total of According to the Berlin questionnaire, Therefore, we suggest using Berlin questionnaire for screening sleep apnea not only in highway drivers but also in in-city bus drivers. This article will focus, in particular, on three elements: The percentage of patients represented by TBI in the Berlin criteria study is limited.
The study was an analysis of the safety of erythropoietin administration and transfusion threshold on the incidence of ARDS in severe TBI patients. Two hundred patients were enrolled in the study. ARDS is associated with increased mortality in severe TBI patients, but further studies are needed to validate these findings.

For ecologists living and working in the enclosed city part of West Berlin , the lack of accessible countryside motivated them to focus their fieldwork increasingly on urban sites and, thereby, to engage themselves in one of the most significant attempts to develop an ecology of the city.
Nature reserve Pfaueninsel in Berlin -Wannsee. During the years about 95 species of lichens were identified within the district of West Berlin. A few of them were growing on trees; corticolous foliaceous species are present in very reduced numbers, and the surviving individuals do not appear healthy. The majority of the species are found on walls and large rocks or on the ground in pine woods. Even these species are showing signs of diminution. Several species seem to have disappeared since the beginning of the observations. Air pollution is singled out as the cause of the decline of the lichens.
Berlin today must be considered a lichen desert. The impact of public employment on private sector activity: We use the move of the seat of the German government from Bonn to Berlin in to test competing views about the impact of public employment on private sector activity in a local labor market.

Hypercongestion in downtown metropolis. We combine such a variable-capacity bottleneck with Vickrey scheduling preferences for the special case, where there are only two possible levels of capacity. Solving the model leads to several new insights, including that the marginal cost of adding a traveler We analyze an optimal toll, a coarse toll, and metering, showing substantial benefits from using these policies to eliminate the period of reduced capacity.
Under hypercongestion, all of these policies can be designed so that travelers gain even Spatial variation in diesel-related elemental and organic PM2. Capturing intra-urban variation in diesel-related pollution exposures remains a challenge, given its complex chemical mix, and relatively few well-characterized ambient-air tracers for the multiple diesel sources in densely-populated urban areas. For buses, outbound and inbound trips per week were summed by route and a kernel density was calculated across sites.
Programmable monitors collected fine particulate matter PM 2. Integrated filters were analyzed for black carbon BC , elemental carbon EC , organic carbon OC , elemental constituents, and diesel-related organic compounds [i. To our knowledge, no studies have collected this suite of pollutants with such high sampling density, with the ability to capture spatial patterns during specific hours of interest.
We hypothesized that we would find substantial spatial variation for each pollutant and significant associations with key sources e. Within this small domain, greater concentration differences were observed in most pollutants across sites, on average, than between seasons.
PAHs, hopanes, and steranes displayed different spatial. Increased incidence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia in young women in the Mitte district, Berlin , Germany. To investigate whether the incidence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia CIN , in particular of high grade CIN, increased in Berlin during the period and whether the ages of women with CIN had decreased. The incidence of all CIN increased from year to year over the observation period: There was a particularly high increase in the incidence of high grade intraepithelial neoplasms CIN 3: With a virtually unchanged age distribution for women in the Mitte district of Berlin , the median age of women with CIN 3 decreased significantly from to , from Full Text Available If space may be conceptualized as a natural resource, much like gas, oil, or minerals, then its production and use can also be thought of as something to be properly managed, taken care of, and not wasted.
Limiting the expansion of the footprint of built-up land in urban areas forces this particular resource space to be used more efficiently—in a sense, compelling it to be more creative and productive. These spatial constraints on urban areas generate different kinds of densification processes within the existing city, propagating densification, and with it new patterns and uses in urban development, as well as novel approaches to mitigating the hazards of dense urban environments.
