Conformemente all'articolo 26 del DDDA Act (nella versione modificata), la dichiarazione d'impatto ambientale è necessaria qualora lo schemadipanificazioneexa rticolo 25 contempli un progetto per cui è necessaria una valutazione dell'impatto ambientale (VIA1 ), tenuto conto che in uno schema di pianificazione DDDA è possibile inserire soltanto un numero estremamente ridotto di progetti che richiedono [. ] [. ]
una VIA (ossia sviluppi di zone industriali, progetti di riassetto urbano e porti turistici marittimi).
In accordance with Section 26 of the DDDA Act (as amended), an environmental impact statement is required where a Section 25 planning scheme includes development which requires an environmental impact assessment (EIA1 ) and only a very limited range of EIA type developments can be included in a DDDA planning scheme (i.e. industrial-estate developments, urban development projects, and sea water marinas).
Le stesse fabbriche che con un sistema di gestione tradizionale hanno dichiarato fallimento, operano con successo nei settori più svariati: refrigerazione di vaccini e carni (suini e pollame); tessile (produzione di tessuti e
confezioni), metallurgia pesante e
conciatura di pelli; calzaturiero; cartario;
tipografico; mediatico; cantieristica navale e costruzioni civili; servizi sanitari (gestione di ospedali e cliniche).
These factories recovered by the workers are competitive today in the national and international market. The same factories which collapsed under the traditional management systems, work in many different sectors such as cattle refrigerators, pig and poultry;
textile and clothing; heavy and light
health care such as hospitals
and clinics; paper mills, tanneries, footwear, printing presses and newspapers; shipyards and construction.
Stefano Piazza, Maria Cristina MatteucciAbstract
The aim of this paper is to describe the impact of research on society, economy and culture in the Humanities and Social sciences. In the first part of the paper, we describe the principal characteristics of the evaluation of research impact in the United Kingdom (UK), with a special focus on the new national exercise of research evaluation: the ‘Research Excellence Framework’ (REF2014). In the second part of the paper we present a case study in a British university campus where good practices of impact evaluation have been recently introduced. The main results of this study show that impact evaluation of Social sciences and Humanities research is a today’s key challenge for the academia, especially due to the difficulty in identifying the appropriate indicators for research impact measurement. Finally, we present the main themes of the current debate about the evaluation of the impacts in different fields of research.Keywords

Readers of this book will gain a clear understanding of what really makes the Japanese, and their society, tick. Among the topics explored: aimai (ambiguity), amae (dependence upon others' benevolence), amakudari (the nation's descent from heaven), chinmoku (silence in communication), gambari (perseverence), giri (social obligation), haragei (literally, "belly art"; implicit, unspoken communication), kenkyo (the appearance of modesty), sempai-kohai (seniority), wabi-sabi (simplicity and elegance), and zoto (gift giving), as well as discussions of child-rearing, personal space, and the roles of women in Japanese society. Includes discussion topics and questions after each chapter.
All in all, this book is an easy-to-use introduction to the distinguishing characteristics of Japanese society; an invaluable resource for anyone—business people, travelers, or students—perfect for course adoption, but also for anyone interested in Japanese culture.
Next in this series:
Now available separately, Japanese Culture: The Religious and Philosophical Foundations is a fascinating journey through Japan's rich cultural history. Less

I picked this up out of curiosity after seeing it in a pile of books at a friends house. I suppose I could have done a little more research into similar books on the market as in the end I'm not quite the target audience of the book. It has several very short chapters on. Read full review

To many Westerners, the so called "Eastern mind" can be an enigma of seemingly conflicting ideologies and beliefs. However underlying this assumption is that there is any more of a common zeitgeist among Eastern peoples than there is among Western ones. This text will go. Read full review

Wish I could give 5.5 for this book.
This is a thorough essays about Japanese cultures that for centuries has built up Japanese characters.

Well, that was disappointing. Davies and Ikeno edited a book about modern Japanese culture, but it felt like it was a half-inch deep and a mile wide. I suppose that's inevitable given how they're trying to discuss an entire culture - but what's annoying is that they reall. Read full review

This is a great book for a fast overview of significant themes related to Japanese culture. These essays are based on a collaborative project completed over a period of years by Japanese students at a university in Japan.
