Download PDF Water Ethics by David Groenfeldt and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2019-02-21 with total page 339 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fully revised and updated, this second edition of Water Ethics continues to consolidate water ethics as a key dimension of water-related decisions. The book introduces the idea that ethics are an intrinsic dimension of any water policy, program, or practice, and that understanding what ethics are being acted out in water policies is fundamental to an understanding of water resource management. Alongside updated references and the introduction of discussion questions and recommended further reading, this new edition discusses in depth three significant developments since the publication of the first edition in 2013. The first is the growing awareness of the climate crisis as an existential threat, and associated concern about adaptive strategies for sustainable water management and ways of using water management for climate mitigation (e.g., practically through agricultural soil management and conceptually through ethics awareness). Second, there has been increased clarity among the religious community, Indigenous leaders, and progressive academics that ethics needs to become an arena for application and action (e.g., the Vatican encyclical Laudato Si, protests at Standing Rock and Flint, Michigan, in the US, and climate demonstrations worldwide). Thirdly, there have been new normative water standards ranging from "water stewardship" (industry initiative), water charters (Berlin) and the on-going initiative to develop a global water ethics charter. Drawing on case studies from countries including Australia, India, the Philippines, South Africa, and the United States, this textbook is essential reading for students of environmental ethics and water governance and management.
Download PDF Woven Metallic Royale a Bujo Sketchbook Fashion Womens by Jamie Aldaya Apparel Development Consulting and published by . This book was released on 2021-08-13 with total page 121 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: woven metallic royale a BUJO sketchbook is a fashion design tool for budding, beginning and experienced clothing designers, apparel developers, merchandisers, illustrators, patternmakers and seamstresses. Its primary function is to remove the artistic block and mundaneness of creating initial template which provide the framework of the final design. Yes, industry secret: we create croquis or body templates to place the final design before a beautiful illustration can be made. Although necessary, it is daunting as the croquis must be correct proportionally, be inspiring for the designer, and be reusable. It can take days to create the croquis as they are the true map of a garment, from fabric drape to seam placement, to closure type, to fit. Only head of ateliers are allowed to begin a collection with indistinguishable brushstrokes due to cost and time risk. Different from a spec sketch, these yield illustration to communicate the designer''s mood, setting, and story of the collection. Hasn''t some created templates already? Yes, however, they are just a collection of templates. The designer still has to pull pieces of the storytelling together from different resources and hope the story is clear from beginning to end. We believe this is the first comprehensive design tool of its kind. Designed by award-winning apparel developer with over 35 years of industry experience, Jamie Aldaya combined the organized storytelling intent features of the BUJO (short for bullet journal) with the croquis requirement, creating the "bones" of a designer''s collection. Struggling with his own croquis in fashion school, he understood to have credibility in fashion, you had to sketch. The croquis became the rite of passage, separating creatives from number pushers. Our BUJO sketchbooks start with a large 8.5x11 inch format. Each book covers a full year''s collection of 4 seasons total. Each season is equipped with the following: Inspiration Page - This sets the intent for the season. The open dot graph layout has none of the confinement of standard graph paper, allowing creatives to stay creative. Add ideas, concepts and colors, your favorite art exhibit, your favorite tv show, your favorite game. Add trends from the runway and from the market. 24 large croquis, both front and back views - The back view is critical as it completes the totality of the garment, and its details are just as important as the front. A garment should look great coming and going. Most templates only provide the front view, acceptable for an illustrator, but unacceptable for a designer Design Details Page - Add special buttons, collar shapes, thread direction, embellishment techniques which will provide the finishing touches to your designs. Notes Page - Add important things to keep in mind as you collaborate with your team, or add To Do/Followup lists here. Gratitude Page - No one is successful without the help and support from others, and it is important to recognize others for helping you make your vision a reality. Think of it as your final step onto the runway to thank your guests, teams, and models. Instead of using a basic list format, we loved the idea of sending thanks out into the world and what better vehicle than the seeds of a dandelion puff. Practicing gratitude will strengthen your business relationships and bring good karma in return. When you''ve completed the Gratitude page, you will have a complete story of thoughts and ideas to confidently communicate your first or upcoming collection, turning your dreams into reality. Our books are covered in high style, original artwork designed for the discreet to the flamboyant, designer to stylist, and always on trend, making them beautiful gifts for the creative in you, your office, or home. Dream. Design. Done.
Download PDF Pliny and the Eruption of Vesuvius by Pedar W. Foss and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2022-03-29 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Pliny and the Eruption of Vesuvius is a forensic examination of two of the most famous letters from the ancient Mediterranean world: Pliny the Younger’s Epistulae 6.16 and 6.20, which offer a contemporary account of the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. These letters, sent to the historian Tacitus, provide accounts by Pliny the Younger about what happened when Mt Vesuvius exploded, destroying the surrounding towns and countryside, including Pompeii and Herculaneum, and killing his uncle, Pliny the Elder. This volume provides the first comprehensive full-length treatment of these documents, contextualized by evidence-rich biographies for both Plinys, and a synthesis of the latest archaeological and volcanological research which answers questions about the eruption date. A new collation of sources results in a detailed manuscript tradition and an authoritative Latin text, while commentaries on each letter offer copiously referenced insights on their structure, style, and meaning. Pliny and the Eruption of Vesuvius offers a thorough companion to these letters, and to the eruption, which will be of interest not only to those working on Vesuvius, Pompeii, and Herculaneum, and the works of Pliny but also to general readers, Latin students, and scholars of the Roman world more broadly.
