This book examines the paradoxes, challenges, potential and problems of urban living. It understands cities as they are, rather than as they may be marketed or branded. All cities have much in common, yet the differences are important. They form the basis of both imaginative policy development and productive experiences of urban life. The phrase ‘city imaging’ is often used in public discourse, but rarely defined. It refers to the ways that particular cities are branded and marketed. It is based on the assumption that urban representations can be transformed to develop tourism and attract businesses and in-demand workers to one city in preference to another. However, such a strategy is imprecise. History, subjectivity, bias and prejudice are difficult to temper to the needs of either economic development or social justice. The taste, smell, sounds and architecture of a place all combine to construct the image of a city. For researchers, policy makers, activists and citizens, the challenge is to use or transform this image. The objective of this book is to help the reader define, understand and apply this process. After a war on terror, a credit crunch and a recession, cities still do matter. Even as the de-territorialization of the worldwide web enables the free flow of money, music and ideas across national borders, cities remain important. City Imaging: Regeneration, Renewal, Decay surveys the iconography of urbanity and explores what happens when branding is emphasized over living.

Since the early 2000s numerous external scenarios and drivers have added significant pressures upon the IT organisations. Among many, these include: Regulatory compliance: data privacy requirements and corporate scandals have focused a requirement for transparency – with high impact on IT organisations Economic pressures: require IT organisations to more closely align with business imperatives. The outcome has been an explosion of ‘standards’ and ‘frameworks’ each designed to support the IT organisation as it demonstrates to the world that they are the’ rock’ of an organisation: strong, reliable, effective and efficient. Most of these standards and frameworks have great elements but no organisation can adopt them all – and many were created without sufficient considerations for interoperability. The IT Service (in 2 parts) looks at the key and very simple goals of an IT organisation and clearly and succinctly presents to the reader the best ‘rock solid’ elements in the Industry. It then shows how all the key elements can easily ‘crystallise’ together –with great templates and check-lists. In Part 1 (another book) the reader is presented with the simple objectives that the IT department really must address. In Part 2 (this book) the reader gains expert advice on how the components of IT Service are ‘crystallised’ in a real environment. There’s a delightfully simple set of steps: OVERVIEW OF THE SERVICE DESIGN PACKAGE THE SERVICE STRATEGY ASPECTS Of SERVICE DESIGN OUTPUTS OF THE SERVICE DESIGN PHASE OUTPUTS OF THE SERVICE TRANSITION PHASE OUTPUTS OF THE SERVICE OPERATION PHASE Within these the Author gives a very simple set of templates (or tells you where they are to be found), practical guidance and very simple checklists. It’s up the reader how far you develop each stage: a lot depends on the nature of your business of course. The joy of this approach is that the reader knows that all basic components are identified -- and that more extensive resources are referred to if the reader wishes to extend.

Eighty-three million dogs and ninety-six million cats call the US home. Dogs alone produce enough waste to fill more than 1,127 football fields 10 feet deep in a single year. Add billions of plastic pick-up bags to the mix, and season well with tons of litter box waste. Scoop a hefty portion into local landfills and seal it tightly to ensure optimal methane production. Clearly, this is a recipe for disaster. Dog and cat owners who trash their pets' offerings daily are in denial about how much waste is produced and what happens to it. Those who want to make the responsible choice often turn to the internet, only to find misleading, confusing, and contradictory information. The Pet Poo Pocket Guide will help you reduce your pet's environmental paw print with: Best practices for cycling pet waste back to nature Suggestions on how to tailor your approach based on location, situation, weather, needs or available time Instructions for using your composted pet waste safely to enrich your soil and nourish ornamental plants. With recycling tactics clearly indicated as "easy", "moderate", or "demanding", The Pet Poo Pocket Guide offers something for everyone. This no-nonsense guide is a must-read for any pet owner who is concerned about the environmental impact of their best friend, and is seeking a safe and practical solution.
