Optimal Spatial Allocation of Labour Force and Employment Protection Legislation (EPL)

1 Introduction Over the latest two decades, the migration flows mainly directed to the countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) have redesigned the anthropology of the so-called Western world, while they have simultaneously engineered the international mobility rules and trends. The socio-economic gap between developed and developing countries, along with other similar factors such as the migration costs borne by either the receiving countries or the migrants themselves, fuel the mobility in discussion. The respective data

Using GIS methods to analyse the spatial distribution and public accessibility of pharmacies in Craiova city, Romania

Access to a community pharmacy is not difficult and the number of pharmacies may increase, especially in the metropolitan area of Craiova city, as new authorisations can no longer be issued for Craiova city. Taking into consideration the fact that the residential areas recently developed out towards the rural area surrounding the city, new pharmacies may be established nearby. References Azhar, S.

In our opinion, from this point of view, it is necessary to use the export strengths of the Republic of Belarus more effectively, such as its favourable geographical position, the existence of a state export support system, and expansion of the accessible sales market within the EAEU. We believe that the main trends in the foreign trade of the Republic of Belarus in the context of increasing competition in the international business

Spatial analysis and urban land use planning emphasising hospital site selection: a case study of Isfahan city

researchers’ knowledge, such studies go back to the 1970s. In 1979, the UK Department of Health and Social Security gave attention to the strategic development of healthcare centres, after which, studies began in this area. This line of research was followed in Austria in 1980–1982. The idea of site selection of private hospitals was proposed by Leslie Mayhew of Birkbeck’s College in London, who tried to develop a spatial model to predict patient flows to hospitals based on results from changes in supply and demand for non-hospital services ( Azizi, 2004 : 10–11).

Factors affecting household access to water supply in residential areas in parts of Lagos metropolis, Nigeria

provided through tankers, public standpipes, and yard and private house connections through reticulation networks. He noted that the services are characterised by aging infrastructure and interrupted flows. O&M (2002) identified inefficient organisation as key factors contributing to poor performance of water supply facilities in many metropolitan cities in sub-Saharan Africa. AWDR (2003) reported that unaccounted-for water is a major water supply problem in many African cities. Akpen (2005) examined temporal variations in electricity and water supply in Makurdi

Public spending mechanisms and gross domestic product (GDP) growth in the agricultural sector (1970–2016): Lessons for Nigeria from agricultural policy progressions in China

Finance Statistics (various issues) and other international data centres. Method of data analysis Past works on growth literature have shown numerous analytical and empirical analyses that revealed how public spending can influence GDP growth (Bose et al ., 2007; Fan et al ., 2008 ). One way is by examining factors increasing the economy’s capital stock (physical or human) to higher flows of public funds. For example, a complementary capital stock can be seen in the public spending on education and health; this spending could stimulate an increase in the stock of

8. Industrial Design: The Roles and Factors of Aesthetics, Modeling, Styling, Product Brand and Branding in Design/Design Education

Abstract

This paper examined the roles and factors of Aesthetics viz-a-viz those of modeling, styling and the product Brand (Branding) as viewed against their fundamental relevance as core ingredients for the actualization of any Design initiative and creative endeavour. These roles, influences and place of Aesthetics (and its allied components, makes up the very soul, content and essence of what the product is all about. Its Form, Shape, Morphological / physical attributes and characteristics. The paper established that the aesthetic components of beauty, colour, shape, (form) fonts, (lettering or typography) and all other general Aesthetic Ambience gives the given product the desired quality/beauty that it exudes to help determine its marketability / profitability as a Brand. The paper also reviewed the aspects /implications of these roles and influences on Design Education alongside highlighting the potentials of the Design Educator - learner experience, while exploiting the Teachers ability to effectively harmonise the various approaches and practices of a functional Design-led Educational programme viz-a-viz piloting such talents/skills achieved to practicable and useful ends as professionals in Design and Technology. The paper also seeks to establish that the roles and factors of modeling styling and Branding of the product which is best exemplified through the adaptation of Design inputs and features such as ornamentation, edge delineation, texture movement/flow of linear form, symmetry or Assymetry of shapes, colour, granularity (of matter/particles large or small) or coarseness, play of light (sunlight) and shade, transcendence (state of being or existence of a product beyond the limits of material experience) and that of total harmony. The paper recommends that for any product Brand to succeed it must incorporate all of the above components together with the inclusion of the other qualities that makes up the intangible content of the Brand such as, Brand Name, Logo, Tagline (catchphrase) the Graphics (elements of Design) Brand Shape, Brand colour, culminating in the establishment of what the Brand mission statement is about, its function, role or job it is intended to perform.
