A Comparative Analysis Of Southern Nevada Municipalities, And Their Active Participation To Implement Historical Preservation, Rhonda M. Reeves Dec 1999

A Comparative Analysis Of Southern Nevada Municipalities, And Their Active Participation To Implement Historical Preservation, Rhonda M. Reeves

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

A comparative analysis of southern Nevada municipalities, and their active participation to implement historical preservation is the foundation of research for this paper. The city of Las Vegas and surrounding municipalities have varying preservation programs in place. The distinctions between the municipalities historic preservation programs foster little protection for the historic site itself in most cases. Historic preservationists are actively bringing to the attention of government the importance of preservation, and are seeking more and more action on the part of the government to implement historic preservation mandates and protection.

The federal government funding for historical preservation within states is ...

ZuverläSsig Nur Auf Zeit, Michael Friedewald

Michael Friedewald

Aufbewahren und Kopieren ohne Qualitätsverlust – das gilt als der große Vorteil der digitalen Speicherung von Daten. Aber auch Bänder, Disketten und CDs altern unbemerkt. Wenn man es merkt, ist es zu spät: Die Daten sind futsch. Da hilft nur sachgerechte Aufbewahrung und regelmäßiges Umkopieren – aber wie oft?

Drawing on the results we point out perspectives in the light of today’s user needs and the technical possibilities.

Vom Experimentierfeld Zum Massenmedium: Gestaltende KräFte In Der Entwicklung Des Internet, Michael Friedewald

Michael Friedewald

This article reviews the shaping forces in the last 30 years of Internet develop- ment. A case in point is the convergence of media, computers and telecom, of which the Internet has always been an important aspect. This historical process, which is widely recognized as at once technical, industrial and political, has been and will continue to be fiercely multi-party and multi-faceted. There are a variety of technical alternatives being fought over. Different interests represent different meanings of communications technologies as well, including ideals of private profit and universal access. It is still not clear whether the future of the ...


Problems With Peirce's Concept Of Abduction, Michael H.G. Hoffmann Jan 1999

Problems With Peirce's Concept Of Abduction, Michael H.G. Hoffmann

Michael H.G. Hoffmann

Abductive reasoning takes place in forming "hypotheses" in order to explain "facts." Thus, the concept of abduction promises an understanding of creativity in science and learning. It raises, however, also a lot of problems. Some of them will be discussed in this paper: After analyzing the difference between induction and abduction (1), I shall discuss Peirce's claim that there is a "logic" of abduction (2). The thesis is that this claim can be understood, if we make a clear distinction between inferential elements and perceptive elements of abductive reasoning. For Peirce, the creative act of forming explanatory hypotheses and ...

Developing And Integrating A Lessons Learned Methodology For Humanitarian Mine Action, Cisr

CISR Studies and Reports

The demand for a centralized lessons learned database has made it clear that there is value in consolidating the experience derived from the numerous de-mining missions by a variety of teams in a variety of countries. Consequently, the James Madison University Mine Action Information Center developed a methodology for collecting, validating, and distributing lessons-learned within the mine action community.

In order to develop this lessons-learned system, individuals involved in the wide spectrum of activities (victim assistance, mine clearance, survey, mine awareness, etc.) and belonging to the myriad agencies (NGOs, military demining, United Nations, MACs, etc.) related to the field of ...
