Abstract

This book proposes theoretical reflections, tools and techniques for a business ethic that aims at the construction of social welfare. A correct connotation of business ethics is seen in its role of interface between the ontology of the "enterprise phenomenon" and the social ethics of its operation. The book upholds the theory that business development can be such only if it leads to the emancipation of the persons affected by the same. A development in which, that is, it is not only the economic results that have bearing, but above all the way in which they are obtained and exploited. In enterprise, too, priority should hence be given to a practice implemented in a conscientious manner which enhances the complete development of the persons involved, whether they are workers or consumers.

Il libro propone riflessioni teoriche, strumenti e tecniche per un'etica d'impresa che miri alla costruzione di un benessere sociale. Una corretta connotazione dell'etica d'impresa viene vista nel suo ruolo di interfaccia tra ontologia del "fenomeno impresa" e deontologia sociale del suo operare e si sostiene che lo sviluppo di impresa può essere tale solo se induce l'emancipazione delle persone con cui viene a contatto. Uno sviluppo in cui, cioè, non pesano solo i risultati economici, ma soprattutto il modo di realizzali e di fruirli. Anche nell'impresa la priorità è dunque colta nel senso di una prassi attuata con coscienza e che faciliti il pieno sviluppo delle persone, lavoratori o consumatori che siano.

Abstract

"Additive manufacturing or 3D printing, manufacturing a product layer by layer, offers large design freedom and faster product development cycles, as well as low startup cost of production, on-demand production and local production. In principle, any product could be made by additive manufacturing. Even food and living organic cells can be printed. We can create, design and manufacture what we want at the location we want. 3D printing will create a revolution in manufacturing, a real paradigm change. 3D printing holds the promise to manufacture with less waste and energy. We can print metals, ceramics, sand, synthetic materials such as plastics, food or living cells. However, the production of plastics is nowadays based on fossil fuels. And that’s where we witness a paradigm change too. The production of these synthetic materials can be based also on biomaterials with biomass as feedstock. A wealth of new and innovative products are emerging when we combine these two paradigm changes: 3D printing and biomaterials. Moreover, the combination of 3D printing with biomaterials holds the promise to realize a truly sustainable and circular economy."

Abstract

Like all the books in this series, this volume proposes wide-ranging reflections and cultural considerations pertinent to business management. Traditionally, realism is identified with a disenchanted approach to reality which is counterpoised to all forms of ideology or utopia. What is proposed here is a strategic realism which supports a humanist approach to enterprise, while steering clear of both cynicism and idealism. Seen from this angle, the crucial aspects of strategy are: the opportune selection of attainable advantages; interest as the spur to change; stratagem as a lever on the trend of events; the plan which traces the route of the opportunities called up, and the action that harvests the fruits.

Come tutti i volumi della collana il libro propone riflessioni ed approfondimenti culturali ad ampio raggio funzionali al governo d'impresa. Tradizionalmente il realismo viene identificato in un approccio disincantato alla realtà che si contrappone ad ogni forma di ideologia o di utopia; qui si propone un realismo strategico che supporti un umanesimo imprenditoriale rifuggendo al contempo sia dal cinismo, sia dall'idealismo. In tal senso nella strategia: la convenienza seleziona i vantaggi perseguibili; l'interesse è la spinta al cambiamento; lo stratagemma fa leva sulla propensione degli eventi; il piano traccia la rotta delle opportunità evocate; l'azione le raccoglie.

Abstract

This book contains the refereed proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Agile Software Development, XP 2016, held in Edinburgh, UK, in May 2016. While agile development has already become mainstream in industry, this field is still constantly evolving and continues to spur an enormous interest both in industry and academia. To this end, the XP conference attracts a large number of software practitioners and researchers, providing a rare opportunity for interaction between the two communities. The 14 full papers accepted for XP 2016 were selected from 42 submissions. Additionally, 11 experience reports (from 25 submissions) 5 empirical studies (out of 12 submitted) and 5 doctoral papers (from 6 papers submitted) were selected, and in each case the authors were shepherded by an experienced researcher. Generally, all of the submitted papers went through a rigorous peer-review process.

Abstract

Estudo teórico, de natureza comparativo-contrastante, abordando a lógica do planejamento estratégico no setor social e da saúde à luz da teoria do agir comunicativo de Jürgen Habermas. Na verdade, trata-se de uma 'crítica da crítica', na medida em que são problematizados os enfoques metodológicos tomados, até o momento, como referencial teórico alternativo ao planejamento normativo. A partir da teoria da ação habermasiana, o autor consegue indicações importantes para uma (re)leitura da teoria organizacional, na perspectiva de uma abordagem comunicativa entre todos os atores envolvidos nas organizações de saúde.

Abstract

Following the Fukushima nuclear accident, a large volume of monitoring data has been collected about the soil, air, dust, and seawater, along with data about an immense number of foods supplied to the market. Little is known, however, about the effect of radioactive fallout on agriculture, information about which is vital. Although more than 80% of the damaged area is related to agriculture, in situ information specifically for agriculture is scarce. This book provides data about the actual movement and accumulation of radioactivity in the ecological system—for example, whether debris deposited on mountains can be a cause of secondary contamination, under what conditions plants accumulate radioactive cesium in their edible parts, and how radioactivity is transferred from hay to milk. Because agriculture is so closely related to nature, many specialists with different areas of expertise must be involved in answering these questions. In the case of rice, researchers in rice cultivation as well as in soil, hydrology, and radioactivity measurement are working together to reveal the paths or accumulation of radioactivity in the field. For this purpose, the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences of The University of Tokyo has diverse facilities available throughout Japan, including farmlands, forests, and meadowlands. Many academic staff members have formed groups to conduct on-site research, with more than 40 volunteers participating. This book presents the data collected from the only project being systematically carried out across Japan after the Fukushima accident.

Abstract

This book reports the results from on-site research into radioactive cesium contamination in various agricultural systems affected by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident that occurred in March 2011. This is the second volume from the research groups formed in the Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences of The University of Tokyo who have published the initial data in their first volume. In this book, additional data collected in the subsequent years are presented to show how the radioactivity level in agricultural products and their growing environments have changed with time. The data clarify the route by which radioactive materials entered agricultural products and their movement among different components (e.g., soil, water, and trees) within an environmental system (e.g., forests). The book consists of various topics, including radioactivity inspection of food products; decontamination trials for rice and livestock production; the state of contamination in wild animals and birds, trees, mushrooms, and timber; the dynamics of radioactivity distribution in mountain and paddy fields; damage incurred by the forestry and fishery industries; and the change in consumers’ minds. The last chapter introduces a real-time radioisotope imaging system, the forefront technique to visualize actual movement of cesium in soil and in plants. This is the only book to provide systematic data about the actual change of radioactivity, and thus is of great value for all researchers who wish to understand the effect of radioactive fallout on agriculture. The project is ongoing; the research groups continue their work in the field for further evaluation of the long-term effects.

Abstract

Cet ouvrage présente une analyse discursive des récits identitaires albertains développés par rapport aux ressources pétrolières de l'Alberta, au fil de l'histoire moderne de la province. Par le biais des théories d'analyse du discours, on examine comment les médias canadiens et albertains ont présenté les phénomènes historiques des booms et busts pétroliers, et plus particulièrement comment l'industrie pétrolière canadienne a su récupérer les paramètres de l'identité albertaine pour suggérer une étroite association d'intérêt entre la communauté de l'Alberta et les divers groupes exploitant son pétrole. Pour ce faire, l'auteure établit des comparaisons entre les discours de l'énergie issus du Québec et ceux de l'Alberta, en faisant référence à la culture populaire et à la littérature classique.
