Transport Planning - 1 INTRODUCTION 1.0 Background “The need to plan for sustainable transport is evident” (Kassens, 2009, p7). The sentence above could hardly be disputed; planning for more sustainable transport is an obvious and urgent necessity. Nevertheless, it seems to be an incredibly challenging task to weigh the environmental, social and economic pillars of sustainability in a balanced proportion and therefore reduce the impacts caused by transport without compromising modern society’s lifestyle. Transport is a central part of people’s lives; from the daily commuting from home to work or school, trips enabling access to sports, shops, health care and various other services (Headicar, 2009), and plays a crucial role in stimulating economical interactions (Kassens, 2009) at the local, regional, national and international levels....   [tags: Transportation] 953 words

transport management - Transport management is now far more sophisticated than it was a decade ago. Transport activities generate a wide range of economic benefits. Between 2% and 4% of total OECD employment, for example, is derived from transport services, and an estimated 4-9% of GDP in the OECD area is attributable to spending by the users of transport (including expenditure on infrastructure). More than 10% of total household expenditure now goes to purchase transport services (OECD Publications/ECMT). The balance of international payments is also strongly influenced by trade in transport equipment....   [tags: essays research papers] 1212 words

Bus Transport - Bus Transport A) The nature of the competition in the bus transport market is very specific. The article suggests competition is used to keep out new entrants to the market thus maintaining market share for the larger firms, "active competition takes place between small operators or between a large and a small operator." Further evidence suggests the competition was not of substantial benefit to the consumer and only used to get one over on the firms rivals, "more services run on routes which where already reasonably well serviced." However some methods of competition showed reasonable benefits to consumers, "charged lower fares than the incumbent." Yet in the long run predatory pricing is not a good thing, as it will eventually push out competition, creating a monopoly where the price will soon go back up again....   [tags: Economics] 830 words

Transport in Mammals - Transport in Mammals A recurring theme in biological systems is the surface area to volume ratio. All cells require nutrients and most require oxygen as well. Wastes also need to be removed. With a small organism this demand can be met by simple diffusion over the body surface but larger or very active organisms need a transport system with a pump to ensure that the supply meets the demand of all cells, even those deep within the body. In mammals, the pump is the heart. Substances are carried in a transport medium of the blood....   [tags: Papers] 2426 words

The Transport Revolution - The Transport Revolution Until late in the 1700’s, in both Europe and America, most roads were either rough tracks created by hoof and wheel or mere paths blazed through the wilderness. People traveled by horseback or on foot between towns. During cold or wet seasons, traffic was especially difficult or impossible. One of the problem was that each parish had to mend its own roads. Most people in the parish had to work 4 or 6 days on the roads each year, or pay money instead....   [tags: Papers] 772 words

It continued by on outlining important inputs of SEA to more sustainable transport planning without neglecting some of the most common weaknesses or opportunities for improvement of the process. This literature review would not, however, be enough to attain the aim proposed and completely answer the objectives (see section 1.2), unless it would be supported by the analysis of a ‘real-case scenario’, where some of the inputs of SEA could potentially be applied, and by gathering opinions and experiences of professional working in the area, in order to better realize current experience....   [tags: Research Analysis ] 1302 words

Exchange and Transport in Protozoa - Exchange and Transport in Protozoa The exchange of gases between the environment and cells occurs via the process of diffusion. Diffusion depends on: · The amount of surface area available for diffusion. The larger the surface area the greater the rate of diffusion. · The concentration gradient. An organism which respires very quickly will have a much lower concentration of oxygen in the cells and a higher than normal concentration of Carbon Dioxide. So the greater the concentration gradient across the respiratory surface the quicker the rate of diffusion....   [tags: Biology] 429 words

Cell Membrane/ Electron Transport Chain / Biochemical Pathway - 1. The cell membrane structure is vital to the life of the cell.

The membrane is double, so at the tip of the fatty acid tails, there are two more fatty acid tails attached to another phosphate head. This is what it looks like: The reason the cell membrane is shaped like this is mainly to control the water flow in and out of the cell.

The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Cultra, Co. Down, Northern Ireland - The Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Cultra, Co. Down, Northern Ireland Monuments and museums are arenas of public history and for the formation and articulation of identities and narratives.[1] Decisions taken as to the formation of museums and the selection, display and organisation of exhibits are influenced by criteria which are not necessarily politically neutral; these may especially involve devices of political elites to emphasise aspects of communal togetherness and thus exert control over communities.[2] Memory and commemoration of past events and generations is by its nature a political and contested act, especially in sharply divided societies.[3] It is no surprise that recently established governments and states should particularly concern themselves with the production of such forms of festivities, commemorations, and monuments.[4] As rulers of a sharply divided society, unionist elites in Northern Ireland in the aftermath of its eventful creation in 1920-1 had particular reasons to concern themselves, and did concern themselves, with such strategies of power.[5] The integration of the province's Catholic minority may have been, or may have been felt to be, beyond the rulers of Northern Ireland;[6] but this very fact heightened the importance of preserving the highest possible degree of political unity under unionist hegemony among the Protestant majority.[7] In this context, the opening of the Ulster Folk Museum, located in Cultra in County Down, Northern Ireland (and now linked to the Ulster Transport Museum), in 1964, might theoretically be seen as a strategy in the ongoing attempted maintenance of unionist hegemony and social control in Northern Ireland....   [tags: Observation Essays, Descriptive Essays]

Consequently, the government must find a solution to solve this problem as speedily as possible.

We All Need Some Cellular Respiration - Every living thing needs cellular respiration to survive. Cellular respiration is the process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen. This process happens through three distinct operations which are glycolysis, the Krebs cycle, and the electron transport chain. Throughout these cycles, our bodies turn oxygen and glucose into carbon dioxide, water, and energy. Although this system seems simple enough, cellular respiration can not take place in just one step because all of the energy from glucose would be released at once, most of it being lost in the form of light and heat....   [tags: Cellular Respiration, ] 521 words
