th I3E 2010 marked the 10 anniversary of the IFIP Conference on e-Business, e- Services, and e-Society, continuing a tradition that was invented in 1998 during the International Conference on Trends in Electronic Commerce, TrEC 1998, in Hamburg (Germany). Three years later the inaugural I3E 2001 conference was held in Zurich (Switzerland). Since then I3E has made its journey through the world: 2002 Lisbon (Portugal), 2003 Sao Paulo (Brazil), 2004 Toulouse (France), 2005 Poznan (Poland), 2006 Turku (Finland), 2007 Wuhan (China), 2008 Tokyo (Japan), and 2009 Nancy (France). I3E 2010 took place in Buenos Aires (Argentina) November 3-5, 2010. Known as "The Pearl" of South America, Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan, colorful, and vibrant city, surprising its visitors with a vast variety of cultural and artistic performances, European architecture, and the passion for tango, coffee places, and football disc- sions. A cultural reference in Latin America, the city hosts 140 museums, 300 theaters, and 27 public libraries including the National Library. It is also the main educational center in Argentina and home of renowned universities including the U- versity of Buenos Aires, created in 1821. Besides location, the timing of I3E 2010 is th also significant--it coincided with the 200 anniversary celebration of the first local government in Argentina.

Trans_ Visit

The book Trans Visit , an artistic report by Swiss photographer Martin Bichsel, is due to be published by Kommode Verlag at the start of October 2014.The voice of Conchita Wurst echoes from speakers all over the world as the diva with a full beard and stunning voice wins the Eurovision Song Contest. Finally there is hope for more tolerance and respect for all genders and gender identities. But have Europeans actually become more tolerant? And what does a glance at the rest of the world reveal? Was the success of Conchita Wurst a sign that Europe, at least, is becoming more open, and that its people have more tolerance and respect for their neighbours? Or was the drag artist nothing more than a tokenistic media construct designed to boost the continent s reputation?The answers to these questions can be found in places where the show business spotlight has gone out. Swiss photographer Martin Bichsel has been accompanying transgender people all over the world for nine years, and gathering together personal stories from Albania, Japan, Greece, Tunisia, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Russia, Turkey, Ukraine and Switzerland.Now, in October 2014, Kommode Verlag is publishing Trans Visit , a book which combines photographic documentation with people s personal stories. The photographer is not looking to criticise society with his book, instead he is trying to tackle a subject in a sensitive rather than voyeuristic way a subject that remains steeped in taboos, even in a supposedly enlightened 21st-century Europe. The book launch in Zurich will take place on 20 November, the official Transgender Day of Remembrance, at Zentrum Karl der Grosse.In Bern, the Trans Visit project exhibition will also be opened to coincide with the book launch in the PROGR city gallery on 22 November.The Trans Visit book has also benefitted from the support of Transgender Network Switzerland and its president Henry Hohmann and co-president Alecs Recher, who will be guests at the launch.

168,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Three generations of Seven Countries investigators gathered in Fukuoka, Japan, on October 30, 1993, to report on the past, present, and future of this vital ongoing study on cardiovascular disease epidemiology. The occasion was the 35th anniversary of the study, which contrasts lifestyles, diet, and cardiovascular disease rates in Japan, Greece, Yugoslavia, Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, and the United States. This volume collects the formal presentations at the 35th anniversary symposium. The Seven Countries Study was the first to carry out both cross-sectional and longitudinal research in populations contrasting in cardiovascular disease rate, lifestyle, and diet. This work presents a brief overview and history of the study followed by the investigators' summaries of their findings on recent dramatic increases and decreases in risk factors and disease rates. The investigators' presentations are capped by overviews from Dr. Frederick Epstein, University of Zurich, and Dr. Jeremiah Stamler, Northwestern University. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the origins, results, present activities, and public health implications of this active, pioneering study in cardiovascular disease epidemiology.

This book presents specialised methods and tools built on classical LCA. In the first book-length overview, their importance for the further growth and application of LCA is demonstrated for some of the most prominent species of this emerging trend: Carbon footprinting; Water footprinting; Eco-efficiency assessment; Resource efficiency assessment; Input-output and hybrid LCA; Material flow analysis; Organizational LCA. Carbon footprinting was a huge driver for the market expansion of simplified LCA. The discussions led to an ample proliferation of different guidelines and standards including ISO/TS 14067 on Carbon Footprint of Product. Atsushi Inaba (Kogakuin University, Tokyo, Japan) and his eight co-authors provide an up-to-date status of Carbon Footprint of Products. The increasing relevance of Water Footprinting and the diverse methods were the drivers to develop the ISO 14046 as international water footprint standard. Markus Berger (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany), Stephan Pfister (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) and Masaharu Motoshita (Agency of Industrial Science and Technology, Tsukuba, Japan) present a status of water resources and demands from a global and regional perspective. A core part is the discussion and comparison of the different water footprint methods, databases and tools. Peter Saling from BASF SE in Ludwigshafen, Germany, broadens the perspective towards Eco-efficiency Assessment. He describes the BASF-specific type of eco-efficiency analysis plus adaptions like the so-called SEEBALANCE and AgBalance applications. Laura Schneider, Vanessa Bach and Matthias Finkbeiner (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany) address multi-dimensional LCA perspectives in the form of Resource Efficiency Assessment. Research needs and proposed methodological developments for abiotic resource efficiency assessment, and especially for the less developed area of biotic resources, are discussed.The fundamentals ofInput-output and Hybrid LCA are covered by Shinichiro Nakamura (Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan) and Keisuke Nansai (National Institute for Environmental Studies, Tsukuba, Japan). The concepts of environmentally extended IO, different types of hybrid IO-LCA and the waste model are introduced. David Laner and Helmut Rechberger (Vienna University of Technology, Austria) present the basic terms and procedures of Material Flow Analysismethodology. The combination of MFA and LCA is discussed as a promising approach for environmental decision support. Julia Martínez-Blanco (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany; now at Inèdit, Barcelona, Spain), Atsushi Inaba (Kogakuin University, Tokyo, Japan) and Matthias Finkbeiner (Technische Universität Berlin, Germany) introduce a recent development which could develop a new trend, namely the LCA of Organizations.

Buying into the Environment

Green purchasing - or eco-procurement - by local and central governments has long been recommended in documents such as Agenda 21 to be a key - although sometimes supplemental-ingredient in the achievement of more environmentally responsible economies. Certainly, sustainable consumption cannot be considered a realistic goal without the full engagement of public authorities. Many initiatives have been undertaken in OECD countries, most successfully in Japan and Denmark where green public purchasing has been proven to be workable and highly effective, while, in other countries, city municipalities have successfully pioneered the development of sophisticated public environmental purchasing policies. However, for the vast majority of countries and their major cities, the potential for green public purchasing remains woefully untapped. A key question is what would be the environmental impact if the majority of cities in Europe replicated the success stories of those leading the way? Public procurement has, after all, been an important tool in achieving other public policy goals such as defence. Why should it not be used as a tool to defend the environment?The RELIEF project, funded by the EU's &quote;City of Tomorrow and Cultural Heritage&quote; programme was established to answer exactly this question: to define the true potential of eco-procurement and to develop a strategy for change in Europe. Buying into the Environment is the result of the research segment of the project which has now been completed. A further stage-to design a Europe-wide action plan will follow in 2004.The book, organised under the auspices of the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) analyses national approaches already tested, and provides in-depth surveys on the pioneer cities such as Hamburg, Malmo and Zurich. Serious attention is given to city-specific hurdles which have been faced and overcome. The most relevant product groups for eco-procurement such as construction, transport, energy, information technology, furniture and food. are also analysed.Uniquely, the book also provides calculations on the environmental benefits potentially achievable through greener purchasing. Tools were developed and tested by the RELIEF researchers on the environmental assessment of products, public buying power and on evaluations of market conditions in order to provide scenarios for the application of green purchasing at a European level. The conclusions are that there is huge potential for both local and central governments to adapt their behaviour patterns and purchase in a more environmentally responsible way. For example, 18% of the EU's Kyoto Protocol commitment could be achieved if major cities in the European Union purchased green electricity. The results are complemented by new ideas on how best to foster innovation in public contractual arrangements-to encourage the development of products such as super-energy-efficient computers and fuel cells-and how the legal system may require adaptation and reform.The results presented in this book will provide an indispensable resource for municipalities, governments, researchers and business practitioners looking for answers on how public procurement can have a fundamental and manifestly positive effect on the environment.
