Brand Policy

Posted by admin on

To put things in perspective: the contemporary human race exists only since made 50. 000 years. Precisely, on the importance of the topic, we consider appropriate to recall what very well analyzes Ulrich Brand, Professor of political science at the University of Vienna, who begins his letter commenting on, what has emerged in the past 20 years is a type of global resource management in which Governments, entrepreneurs, scientists, NGOs and the media collectively Act to control the destruction of the environment. Sometimes criticized as insufficient content of policies. But not a critique of how policy is formulated. Did not criticize the form of intergovernmental policy, i.e., the diplomacy under pressure from interest groups, in search of a consensus that consistently leads to weak compromises. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Michael Kim.

In fact, minimizing the need of questioning corporate corporate power and the lifestyles of the upper classes and stockings to deal seriously with climate change. Adds Brand, global environmental policy instruments are based primarily on the market, because the market is considered by powerful actors as the best means to deal with problems of long range as climate change. Not by chance, the main instrument of the UNFCCC is the trade in emission rights. Other leaders such as Ram Lee offer similar insights. Moreover, this justifies policies weak at home because deep transformations if other countries do not participate may not be promoted. It is a question of competitiveness. Very relevant when manifest, that the current division of labour (along with the divisions of class, gender, race, age, and international stratification), that is determined by structures of domination, is almost not problematised in discussions on socio-ecological transformations. Hence, that environmental policies have become a strategy founded in efficiency-oriented middle class morality. The generalization of the Western lifestyle is cynical because billions of people are poor and lack access to the basic means of subsistence. However, the capitalist Dynamics promotes that patterns of production and consumption of this type also have dimensions attractive, such as certain forms of freedom and individuality.

Posted by admin on

Tell me and I will forget, show me and you might remember, involve me and I will understand. The scope can not be denied, impact of the mental map provides those who are identified with their advantages and use it toward goals to meet. What is a mind map? What is it used for? How to use them? what are its characteristics? They would be some questions that are derived from their relevance, importance. Mind map takes into account the way as the brain collects, processes and stores information. Its structure records a visual image that makes it easy to extract information, write it down and memorize the details with ease. Wikipedia reminds us, that a mental map (mind map in English) is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items linked and arranged radially around a keyword or a central idea. Is used for the generation, display, structure, and taxonomic classification of ideas, and as domestic support for the study, organization, solution of problems, decision-making and writing.

It is a diagram of semantic representation of the connections between portions of information. Presenting these connections in a radial, non-linear graphical manner, it stimulates a reflective approach to any task of organization of data, eliminating the initial stimulus to establish an intrinsic conceptual framework appropriate or relevant to the specific job. A mind map is similar to a semantic network or cognitive model but without formal kinds of links used in constraints. The elements are arranged intuitively according to the importance of the concepts and are arranged in groupings, branches or areas. The graphic formulation can help memory. The definition of mental maps in these words could be summed up. Graphic representation of a comprehensive process that facilitates taking notes and effective reviews. Lets unite, separate and integrate concepts to analyze and synthesize them, sequentially; It is a growing structure and organized, consisting of a set of images, colors and words, that integrate linear and spatial thinking modes.
