2.2 The classic six-stage project management model

This model also consists of stages, but, unlike the sequential flow of the project life-cycle, the six-stage model assumes that some stages are carried out simultaneously.

4.1 Family and meanings?

We have considered the difficulties of pinning down family definitions and meanings. We now ask whether it is indeed important to explore and unravel these complexities. Do the varieties of family meanings – or the meaning of ‘family’ itself – matter, or do they just provide a minor intellectual diversion? You may like to pause here for a moment to consider how you would answer this question for yourself. Do you think they matter, and if so, in what ways?

We consider this questi

America’s Aging Infrastructure: What to Fix, and Who Will Pay?
In the U.S., infrastructure is usually silent and forgotten -- until the power goes off, the ATM stops working or a neighborhood is consumed by fire. In September, a 54-year-old gas pipeline exploded in San Bruno, Calif., killing eight people and damaging more than 50 homes. Seven weeks earlier, an oil pipeline rupture in Michigan spilled more than a million gallons of crude. According to experts, the country's infrastructure is a huge market that holds tremendous business opportunities, but th

A contract, of course, is a form of promise you endorse when you sign it. Signing the contract is performative, it changes the relationships. In this case, it clearly is a promise, it is a promise to do his ‘best’, and that is clearly an ethical matter. This move obviously has a strong

Most people's experience of learning is in a classroom (of a school, college or evening class). The teacher is there to give guidance and direction on what to do. Activities include reading books, taking notes, answering questions and working with other people.

Online learning is completely different. All the direction is provided by the course materials. Activities such as reading, note taking and answering questions mostly take place at the computer. Working with other people is done
