Urban renewal means Rehabilitation of impoverished urban neighborhoods by large-scale renovation or reconstruction of housing and public works.

This includes renovations of different areas, improvement of the landscape and the streetscape, redefining of the pedestrian walkways and the vehicular movement and many more. This would help in rebuilding the urban fabric of this markaz. When developed it was serving to the capacity of three hundred people and now this number has increased to a number of two thousand people.

After a century during which Confucianism was viewed by academics as a relic of the imperial past or, at best, a philosophical resource, its striking comeback in Chinese society today raises a number of questions about the role that this ancient tradition might play in a contemporary context.
HIV/AIDS, a relatively younger disease has claimed lives of millions of people irrespective of color, race, boundary, religion, sex and age. As research findings indicate a greater number of adult people have become victims of HIV/AIDS at an alarming rate. Children have been orphaned and younger people have been left alone with all the burdens they are not supposed to shoulder. However, usually, in the process of combating HIV/AIDS, efforts are put only on younger people by leaving aside today's backbones, the adults, of a country. Hence, this book came up with the prevalence rate and impacts of the disease on the lives of adult population. Furthermore, it detailed the roles Adult Education play in combating HIV/AIDS together with the major challenges that can possibly be encountered in the process of combating HIV/AIDS through Adult Education.
At the end of 2007 it was estimated that around 800,000 people were living with HIV in Western and Central Europe. This represents 8.1 % increase over the estimated 740,000 in 2006. Although the number of people living with HIV and AIDS in Europe is relatively small when compared to the number of people living with HIV in areas such as Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, HIV/AIDS in Western and Central Europe is still considered a major public health issue. The highest rates were reported from Estonia, Portugal and Latvia; the lowest rates were reported by Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Romania. The number of people dying from AIDS in this region has significantly decreased since the introduction of combination antiretroviral treatment in the mid-1990s. Most Western and Central European countries benefit from wealthy economies, stable infrastructures and developed healthcare systems, making significant progress in scaling up towards universal access, including access to antiretroviral therapy and prevention of mother-child transmission. HIV is now often considered a chronic disease, instead of a death sentence.
In this thesis, the effect of buffer strategy on video quality has been investigated. For this purpose, a software system was developed to implement buffer strategy at sender and receiver sides. Four experiments were performed under this system and five scenarios were designed under each experiment. A subjective test of MOS was conducted for all the scenarios to collect people''s perception about three different videos. People from different background and of different age group were invited to take part in all the experiments. MATLAB and MS Excel were used for data collection and plotting graphs. We conclude that people have convergence of opinions when communication break time increases than the size of buffers at both ends. Finally, the MOS ratings of this subjective test prove that by the use of same size buffers at both ends improves the user''s perceived quality of video at acceptable level. Because of empirical study, the main focus was on implementation strategy of buffers at both ends. The implementation strategy was the design of a number of scenarios in which the statistics of the behavior of sender and receiver buffers have been collected.
Six people sit down for dinner at a table laid for seven. No one can forget the night almost exactly a year ago that Rosemary Barton died at this same table surrounded by the same people, her beautiful face turned blue with cyanide poison. Rosemary had always been memorable - and people had strong reactions to her. Did one of the six people at dinner feel strongly enough about her to kill her?
In the post military situation in Kashmir a number of factors both locally and at the international level impacted the relations between the two countries and the regional context within which these relations operated. It began with the end of cold war and emergence of the unipolar global order. In 1998 the two countries tested their nuclear arsenal and emerged as de facto nuclear powers. Subsequently, the developments of 9/11 have had tremendous impact on how violent political movements were to be judged and dealt at global level. It was within this context that many people started highlighting the value of resolving conflicts and building peace for the greater good of the region. In this context one of the important and latest proposals came from General Pervez Musharraf. His Four-Point proposal of identifying regions, demilitarizing the identified regions, introducing self-rule and developing a joint mechanism is being debated and discussed within the political circles. However, the question is how much acceptability this ‘Formula’ enjoys with the people of Kashmir. Any solution to Kashmir will be valid only if it is going to be accepted by the people of Kashmir, primarily.
