Devouring Cultures brings together contributors from a wide range of disciplines including media studies, rhetoric, gender studies, philosophy, anthropology, literary criticism, film criticism, race theory, history, and linguistics to examine the ways food signifies both culture and identity. These scholars look for answers to intriguing questions: What does our choice of dining house say about our social class? Can restaurants teach us about a culture? How does food operate in Downton Abbey? How does food consumption in zombie apocalypse films and apocalyptic literature relate to contemporary food-chain crises and food nostalgia? What aspects of racial conflict, assimilation, and empowerment may be represented in restaurant culture and food choice? Restaurants, from their historical development to their modern role as surrogate kitchen, are studied as markers of gender, race, and social class, and also as forums for the exhibition of tensions or spaces where culture is learned through the language of food. Food, as it is portrayed in literature, movies, and television, is illuminated as a platform for cultural assimilation, a way for the oppressed to find agency, or even a marker for the end of a civilization. The essays in Devouring Cultures show how our choices about what we eat, where we eat, and with whom we eat are linked to identity and meaning and how the seemingly simple act of consumption has implications that extend far beyond sustenance. The book is published by The University of Arkansas Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robin Roach. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/071297/bk_acx0_071297_sample.mp3.

Air Pollution Awareness in the Philippines. Its...

Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Physical Geography, Geomorphology, Environmental Studies, grade: 1.0, , course: Doctor in Development Education, language: English, abstract: The threat of environmental pollution has become one of the chief concerns of this decade and perhaps the rest of this century. Although many individuals think the industrialists are the villains who pollute the environment, the major villains are the consumers who desire and demand new, more, faster, and bigger playthings without thinking about the cost to the environment. Though many living things emit carbon dioxide when they breathe, the gas is widely considered to be a pollutant when associated with cars, planes, power plants, and other human activities that involve the burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline and natural gas. That is because carbon dioxide is the most common of the greenhouse gases, which trap heat in the atmosphere and contribute to climate change (Delgado, A. 2019). Alongside being an increasingly important problem, air pollution is a major issue regarding various fields such as environment, health, economy and politics. Pollution is now a common place term, which our ears are attuned to. We hear about the various forms of pollution and read about it through the mass media. The pervasive social and environmental impacts of air pollution make it an important marker for sustainable development across all levels of economic development.Specifically, Philippines as a developing country, it deals with many socio-economic and developmental issues. In the face of these issues, some are concerned that over the past two years and in spite of the current administration's promises, environmental protection appears to have taken a backseat.This paper is anchored on Republic Act No. 8749, also known as Philippine Clean Air Act of 1999. It is a comprehensive air quality management policy and program which aims to achieve and maintain healthy air for all Filipinos. The Philippine Clean Air Act of 1999 was signed into law by former President Joseph Estrada in July 27, 1999. This paper serves as a source of reference for the trainers in relevance to air pollution awareness specifically in the Philippines.

Jatropha, Challenges for a New Energy Crop

Jatropha, Challenges for a New Energy Crop Volume 2 aims to report on the state of the art of scientific investigations that were made during the past ten years on the new crop Jatropha curcas. The progresses obtained on the knowledge of this abstemious, semi-wild species are already impressive and were mainly achieved in just a decade (2001-2011). This knowledge extends from basic Jatropha physiology and biological reproduction to the basic agronomic practices and systems for its productive management, but also the complete set of biotechnological tools, such as in vitro culture, genetic transformation, genome sequencing, genetic maps, and marker-assisted selection that are necessary for its selective breeding. These scientific and technological achievements pave the way for the future technological management and domestication of Jatropha as an industrial oilseed crop able to contribute to the feeding of the transport system.In view of the importance that Jatropha demonstrated worldwide by its large scale cultivation and emerging value for energy business as a biofuel, we felt the necessity of this first comprehensive compilation by global experts. The access to objective information may be difficult to people not directly involved with Jatropha because it is scattered among science media eventually written in different languages. Thus, we gathered the information scattered worldwide in a sort of summary or general agreement of what is known on Jatropha at the moment. This form of a compilation was also necessary because the knowledge on Jatropha is shared over the tropical belt also called Jatropha Belt by different teams, in different politico-economic realities and with different technological and scientific backgrounds. A compilation was the best way to faithfully transmit the point of view of these experts with as few biases as possible. This compilation is a valuable source of inspiration for the next generation scientists investigating this new crop, for technologists invested in improving its profitability as well as for decision makers and policy implementors, involved in politics, economists, environmentalists or social management who are thinking and acting for the development of a world based on sustainability.

The Structure of Digital Partner Choice
101,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work approaches the modern phenomenon of online dating, examining the ways people make use of its technical and social potential. In particular, the users' mate preferences, choices, strategies, and interactions are analyzed using the innovative method of click-stream observations and web-questionnaire data. For the purpose of these analyses, two major theories are used - an explicit theory of individual mate choice, and the more general relational theory developed by Pierre Bourdieu, which helps to highlight the social structures both underlying and resulting from mating online. Results show that online dating is not a partner marker free from social structure, but that the traditional social conditions found offline are also reproduced in this virtual setting. In contrast to the picture drawn by media discourse and advertising, online dating represents a partner market which fulfills the promise of happiness in a socially differential way.
