This paper illustrates the contrasting governance approaches of comparable ‘postindustrial’ municipalities in England and Germany the twin towns of Newcastle upon Tyne and Gelsenkirchen. Drawing on Hooghe and Marks’ (2003) characterisations of “Type I” and “Type II” multilevel governance systems, it uses data from over a dozen indepth interviews with practitioners in each city to highlight how the council in Gelsenkirchen has been able to take a much more hierarchical approach to climate change mitigation than its counterpart in Newcastle. This is partly due to Germany’s long tradition of local autonomy (Norton, 1994), which has helped Gelsenkirchen to develop its strategic capacity with support from the regional, state and federal governments.

Keep believing the economy has “turned the corner”; why, because of TARP? Cash for clunkers? Stimulus packages? Health care/cap and trade proposals? Global warming summits in Copenhagen? If you can see that the govt. Is in the process of controlling the entire economy, and will severely effect our standard of living in a negative way going forward, I think you need to open your eyes a little bit wider. I sincerely hope your comment was sarcastic, and, if so, I apologize for my aforementioned statement..
Children, we must teach them to be aware of their own emotions and of the emotions of others. They need strategies to overcome adversity when things feel dire. Additionally, we must consider as a society what it means to engage with one another and the negative even dangerous impact on young people who grow up lacking true, authentic.
These cells can grow out of control and crowd out the normal, healthy ones in your bone marrow. When they build up, they form a tumor. It might be linked to changes in DNA. A spin off book, the MIB Agent’s Handbook, explains that Noisy Crickets are deliberately given to rookies, and bets are taken on how far the rookie will fly as a result of the gun’s recoil (a practice discouraged under MIB’s ‘No Hazing’ policy). In the animated series, Jay still uses the Noisy cricket with the same avail. However, he eventually gives it a suppressor so it no longer kicks.
