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.

Make it Simple and Keep it Simple 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 (this book) the reader is presented with the simple objectives that the IT organisation really must address. The author uses his extensive expertise to present to the reader they key themes and processes that apply. In order to keep it simple the author strips down what appears to be complex standards into their basic components and demonstrates to the reader that these components are actually common sense. The author’s independence means that the reader doesn’t get one view of one or two approaches – every aspect of the IT service is considered and presented to create a unique holistic view of the basic building blocks of a ‘rock solid’ IT department. Topics included are: Designing The Service Management Of Risks Transitioning The Service Managing The Service Day-To-Day Improvement Efforts Upcoming Trends N.B.: In Part 2 (another book) the reader gains expert advice on how the components of IT Service are ‘crystallised’ in a real environment.

A classic exposé in company with An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring, The Story of Stuff expands on the celebrated documentary exploring the threat of overconsumption on the environment, economy, and our health. Leonard examines the “stuff” we use everyday, offering a galvanizing critique and steps for a changed planet. The Story of Stuff was received with widespread enthusiasm in hardcover, by everyone from Stephen Colbert to Tavis Smiley to George Stephanopolous on Good Morning America, as well as far-reaching print and blog coverage. Uncovering and communicating a critically important idea—that there is an intentional system behind our patterns of consumption and disposal—Annie Leonard transforms how we think about our lives and our relationship to the planet. From sneaking into factories and dumps around the world to visiting textile workers in Haiti and children mining coltan for cell phones in the Congo, Leonard, named one of Time magazine’s 100 environmental heroes of 2009, highlights each step of the materials economy and its actual effect on the earth and the people who live near sites like these. With curiosity, compassion, and humor, Leonard shares concrete steps for taking action at the individual and political level that will bring about sustainability, community health, and economic justice. Embraced by teachers, parents, churches, community centers, activists, and everyday readers, The Story of Stuff will be a long-lived classic.
