Institutional religion's strategy for new towns by Carlton Edward Ruch( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to formulate general strategy recommendations which will result in a proposed planning process for institutional religion in new towns. To accomplish this, the author became familiar with institutional religion's planning for new towns in several ways. First, he became a participant-observer of two groups of religious leaders involved in new town planning. These were the Inter-Faith Consultation for the proposed new town of Flower Mound near Dallas, Texas, and RIP (Religious Institutions Planning) group for the proposed new town of The Woodlands, near Houston, Texas. To supplement this, he interviewed religious leaders in the new town of Columbia, Maryland, and corresponded with religious leaders in British new towns. On the basis of these initial investigations, a questionnaire was devised. It concentrated on what the author considered to be the six critical areas of new town strategy.
A method for determining the optimization of alternative uses of river oxbows by Adolph Junior Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to develop a method for evaluating the optimum use or uses of river oxbows that are created from the straightening of a river's natural course for navigation. An in-depth investigation into existing navigation projects in the United States revealed that relatively few river meanders in past projects had been severed strictly for navigation purposes. Although meander cutoffs shorten the distance between two given points, the decision to sever a bend was usually based on improving flood control rather than enhancing navigation. With the exception of isolated instances, whereby a severed bend may serve as a port, there is little evidence that serious consideration was given to the usefulness of these cutoff parcels of land and river channels until the Arkansas Waterway was developed. A portion of the Trinity River Navigation Project was selected to serve as a case study area to develop a computer program that would assist in formulating a systematic approach to determine the optimum use or uses of those man-made oxbows. A detailed analysis of the case study area was made via helicopter flights, on the ground observations, and various remote sensing techniques. The Trinity River Project, as authorized by Congress, would create 34 cutoffs of various sizes in the study a rea. A computer program was developed to determine the optimum use or uses a portion of these 34 parcels of land would fulfill. The major uses to which these lands might be subjected, i.e., industrial park and/or port site, natural area, park land or residential area, were listed and the characteristics a given oxbow would need to fulfill one or more of these uses was determined. Of the thirty- four potential cutoffs in the study area, sixteen were selected as suitable for one or more of the designated uses. Of these sixteen, only one site was determined to be suitable for all four of the major land uses in the program. There were two sites that were suitable for three uses and seven were deemed suitable for two uses. Six of the sites were categorized as being suitable of only one use. The program is very flexible, in that it allows modifications to be made in the program to allow for future changes in land use philosophies and for this reason is adaptable to other rivers

Citizen perceptions of appropriate levels of maintenance for parks in a major metropolitan area by John Vernon Blackburn( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study sought to identify public perceptions of appropriate levels of maintenance in parks, creeks and greenbelt areas in a major metropolitan area, and to explore the relationship of those perceptions as a factor in determining levels of park visitation. A second primary intent was to determine whether the levels of maintenance perceived to exist in parks, creeks and greenbelts are necessarily the same levels of maintenance citizens want to see adopted in these areas. A total of 507 respondents were interviewed in their homes. The city was divided into 10 zones, delineated on the basis of socio-demo-graphic and cultural differences. The sample was selected by means of a geographic cluster sample. Respondents were presented with three pairs of photographs which depicted high (intensive), medium, and low- (minimal) levels of park maintenance and asked which they preferred. The question was repeated, but respondents were then informed of the annual cost per acre of the various levels of maintenance for a typical 20 acre park. No compromise of preferences occurred when respondents were made aware of the wide differences in costs between the alternate levels of park maintenance. A. similar approach, was used, to identify citizens' preferred levels of maintenance of creek and greenbelt areas with, and without cost constraints. Again, cost factors were not of sufficient concern to area residents for them, to compromise their preferred level for creek and greenbelt maintenance. A series of scale items were included on the questionnaire to assess respondents' perceptions of grounds maintenance, maintenance of sanitation services, and maintenance of recreation facilities at typical parks. In all these areas, overall perceptions of the sample were generally positive, but there were some differences between sub-groups of citizens. The quality of parks maintenance in the study area was rated "excellent" by 26 percent and "good" by 58 percent of respondents with only 16 percent rating It as "average" or "poor". There was some relationship between respondents' perceived quality of maintenance and the extent of their park visitation
Credit market efficiency and the allocation of resources -- a qualitative approach by Terrence Arthur Larsen( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation consists of the incorporation of financial intermediary markets into a general economic system. Demand and supply equations are constructed for all markets, including cost of production functions for the intermediary markets, such that changes in the production conditions in intermediary markets affect the other markets in the system. The emphasis is placed on the interrelationships between the "real" and "financial" sectors such that changed in either sector will, in general, affect the other. The incorporation of intermediary markets is accomplished in a qualitative framework, and the solutions are in terms of the directions of change in the price level and various market rates of return with respect to exogenous changes. The exogenous shifts considered are changes in the nominal money supply, the efficiency of production of intermediary bond levels, the reserve levels which intermediaries are required to hold, and open market operations
Attitudes of riparian landowners toward state river conservation systems by Wayne Elliot Williams( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

River recreation is dependent upon the limited resources of free-flowing streams and adjacent riparian property. State river conservation systems have lacked the funding necessary to acquire title to riparian property. The success of state river systems is dependent upon the cooperation of private riparian landowners and their intentions toward river conservation systems are of primary importance. The study objective was to test the effects of the attitudes of riparian landowners and their land use objectives on their behavioral intentions toward state river conservation systems. The theoretical basis for this research was derived from the attitude theory developed by Martin Fishbein. Based upon suggestions from past research, the variable of objective in land ownership was introduced. Attitudes and land use objectives were the independent variables and behavioral intentions toward the designation of rivers as parts of state river conservation systems was the dependent variable. Three hypotheses were developed and tested to examine the relationships between these variables. It was hypothesized that those riparian landowners with the most favorable attitudes toward state river conservation systems would have the most favorable behavioral intentions toward the designation of rivers as parts of state river conservation systems. The results supported this hypothesis. The second hypothesis was that those riparian landowners whose land use objectives were categorized under "preservation" would have the most favorable behavioral intentions toward the designation of rivers as parts of state river conservation systems. The results supported this hypothesis with some adjustments to the theorized categories of land use objectives. The third hypothesis was that those riparian landowners whose land use objectives were categorized under "preservation" would have the most favorable attitudes toward the designation of rivers as parts of state river conservation systems. The results supported this hypothesis. It was concluded that Fishbein's methodology could be applied to studies of landowners' attitudes toward state river conservation system. The variable of land use objectives was defined and its relationship to attitudes and behavioral intentions was examined. The results suggest the need for further studies of the relationship between land use objectives, attitudes and intentions toward river conservation systems
Leisure behavior patterns: a study of residents in the lower Brazos Valley of Texas by Philip Keith MeKnelly( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The primary objective of this research was to determine if a relationship existed between selected socioeconomic characteristics and free time and its use. Hypotheses were developed and tested to investigate the effect of occupation, family income, education, place of residence, and sex on the availability and use of leisure time. Data concerning the quantity of free time available to the individual were collected through the use of time budget diaries and personal interviews were designed to gather information for the activity analysis. The secondary objective was, in fact, a requirement of the first. In the course of investigating the relationships described above, it was necessary to combine existing research techniques into a methodology broad enough to evaluate the effects of the socio-economic variables on leisure time and its use. The study area for the research included the following southeastern Texas counties: Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Leon, Madison, Robertson, and Washington. A random block technique was used to select the sample. The population surveyed included only those residents of the seven county area that were eighteen years of age or older. Data for the study were collected between February 1, 1973 and March 1, 1973 by members of Squadron One, Texas A & M University Corps of Cadets. Seventy-two percent of the dwelling units contacted during the course of the project returned usable interview schedules.
The evolution of Puritanism into the mass culture of early nineteenth-century America by Dennis Earl Minor( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The confusion regarding the nature of Puritan theology and the subsequent influence of Puritanism on later American life is due to the efforts of the Puritans to follow the teaching of Calvin while also showing a need for good works and a need to give man some control over his ultimate destiny. The Puritans, following Calvin, believed God to be omnipotent and man to be depraved; it was then hard for them to deny predestination. But they also felt that good works were a part of the Christian life and that the very existence of churches and preaching demanded that man have some say in his fate. So the Puritans started with the idea of God's omnipotence and began to compromise predestination. William Ames, the foremost theologian of the American Puritans, made predestination a two-part decree. Ames said that God had predestined man but that the decree was not complete until each individual either accepted or rejected God's grace. Ames then made good works one of the major points of his theology. Other theologians turned to the idea of the new covenant as a means of reconciling God's omnipotence with man's freedom to accept or reject grace. Under this theory God's power was in fact unlimited but God had agreed to limit it, agreeing to save those who believed. John Cotton preached the covenant of grace theology in early America. Samuel Willard in the second half of the seventeenth century gave this theology a very legalistic interpretation, emphasizing God's agreement to bind himself. In the eighteenth century Jonathan Edwards told his listeners that God was not legally bound to save any man but that he would withhold his all-powerful wrath for a time, allowing a sinner a limited time to seek grace.
A study to document the development and management of multi-institutional arrangements in the delivery of health care services by Mark Sheldon McConathy( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problem addressed in this study is the lack of comprehensive structured information on the historical development, the variety of forms, and the direction in change of multi-institutional arrangements in health services delivery. A definition of "multi-institutional arrangements" is developed and major studies in the field are reviewed. The historical development worldwide of multi-institutional arrangements in health care services from the mid-18th century to early 1982 is documented as a basis for the presentation of a taxonomy of multi-institutional arrangements. The taxonomy is composed of five levels of increasingly complex inter-organizational forms. The first level, "individual institutional corporate restructuring," typically a hospital, fragments from one corporate entity to several, all owned by a single corporation. Level two, "institutional sponsored cooperation," occurs when individual health care institutions sponsor or coordinate services and/or projects in order to achieve administrative goals and objectives. The third level, multi-institutional health care systems, occur when individual institutions, often of a homogeneous nature, affiliate or cooperate (usually within a system) in order to achieve economies of scale and/or administrative goals and objectives. Linked regional health care systems, the fourth level of the taxonomy, occurs when systems, such as multi-hospital systems, cooperate in order to achieve economies of scale and/or to accomplish administrative goals and objectives. The fifth level of the taxonomy, international health care systems, occur when linked regional health care systems cooperate in order to achieve administrative and/or political goals and objectives. The study presents a discussion of significant management and service issues for each level of the taxonomy in order to document experience from the field with the various organizational forms and to provide information for others who may attempt to develop their own such organizations or to study them. The study concludes that multi-institutional arrangements in health will continue to develop in response primarily to economic or political pressures, the rate and form of development, and being sensitive to the organizational, political, economic, and social environment

A systems approach to urban planning by Roger Alex Powell( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this research is to develop a new concept of an urban planning system, utilizing a systems approach to the overall concept and function of municipal organization and operation. The systems approach emphasizes objectives which are common to the effective coordination of independent parts in an integral whole, and offers the opportunity to apply proven theory to urban organizations and planning. The proposed urban planning system is developed about a multilevel system concept which emphasizes a new approach to municipal organization, a restructured planning process, an analytical capability, and an integral information system. These are combined in a concept that is built upon comprehensive urban planning and which provides an implementation capability that converts long-range planning into operational directives for the system. The conceptual system is directed toward achieving the comprehensive plan and combines both a new comprehensive planning process and a new operational planning process to achieve that purpose. The comprehensive planning process is based upon thorough problem definition and specific objectives. All possible alternative solutions are generated and are analytically evaluated and selected. Citizen participation and input into the process is solicited to assist in the determination of a specific course of action. Long-range programs are developed which are to guide the overall development of the urban area, and the sum of these programs constitute the comprehensive plan. Changing conditions and requirements are continuously monitored to determine factors which might alter the identified course of action and intent embodied in the comprehensive plan. These become the basis for continual problem redefinition and updating of the comprehensive plan.
A work Task Inventory and Analysis of Industrial Technology graduates of Texas A & M University by Jon Frederick Botsford( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background and Purpose of the Study [line break] The Department of Engineering Technology, Texas A & M University, became aware of a need for documented knowledge of what specific work tasks were being performed by the graduates of the department. This information was needed for two purposes: 1. in counseling and describing to students and potential students in the work Industrial Technologists perform on their jobs; 2. in evaluating and improving the Industrial Technology curriculum. The problem was not unique to Texas A & M.A survey of literature indicated that this was a problem at many schools. A program of a follow-up study of graduates was a frequently recommended method of solving the problem.
A nationwide comparison of municipal recreation administration in selected central and suburban cities by Arthur Joseph Haley( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study explores, within the limits of the defined Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSA's) of the United States in 1965, the comparative relationship of central city and suburban municipal recreation administration. The specific objective of this study is to determine whether or not, within these SMSA's, the suburbs had a disproportionate allocative level of municipal recreation opportunities. The determination of this objective has been effected by an investigation of the traditional administrative components of land, labor and capital. A statistical base for this national study was established by collecting all available data, in both the central cities and the selected related suburbs, relative to these three components of municipal recreation administration. Individual averages for these three components were determined for each of the 152 municipalities studied. Following establishment of these individual averages, overall central city and suburban means per capita for the municipal recreation administration components of labor and capital were determined. The same determination was made for the municipal recreation administration component of land. However, it is expressed on an acres per 1,000 population basis rather than on a per capita basis. This was done in order to make it possible for there to be a comparison between municipal recreation land in the studied municipalities and the traditional recreation and park standard of ten acres per 1,000 population.
An assessment of perceptions of competencies needed by postsecondary vocational-technical teachers in Texas by Jack Lewis Foreman( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Purpose This study investigates, through a descriptive survey design, the opinions of postsecondary vocational-technical teachers in Texas regarding competencies which have been identified as those needed for effective teaching. Teachers representing 747 programs in the public junior and/or community colleges and technical institutes were surveyed during the spring of 1973. The study objectives were to: 1. Determine if postsecondary vocational-technical teachers perceive a) formal vocational-technical preservice courses taken in Texas; b) formal inservice vocational-technical teacher-development programs; c) formal courses not specifically designed to provide vocational-technical teacher development and courses taken in an institution outside the state of Texas; or d) experiences other than formal work, as the primary sources of their initial competency in the teaching competencies they need as well as those they already have. 2. Determine if common agreement existed between the perceptions of postsecondary vocational-technical deans and/or directors and their teachers on the teaching competencies which postsecondary vocational-technical deans and/or directors thing their teachers need and do not have. a. Determine those teaching competencies which postsecondary vocational-technical deans and/or directors think their teachers need and do not have. b. Determine those teaching competences in which postsecondary vocational-technical teachers think they need further preparation.
An analysis of rural subdivision development on selected reservoirs in the Trinity River Basin Texas by Freddie Max Glaze( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The primary objective of this study was to determine the extent to which rural subdivision development, appearing as land marketed for vacation land or lot sale, was occurring on lands in the periphery of major, non-controlled, man-made reservoirs in the Trinity Basin of East Texas and to characterize such subdivision development with a summary description of selected study areas. Study areas include Cedar Creek Reservoir located in Henderson County and Lake Livingston situated on land in San Jacinto, Walker, trinity and Pol counties. Data were collected by the author and included a thirty-seven county survey of subdivision development. The survey attempted to establish the location and size of a pre-defined typology of subdivisions. Types of subdivisions sought include: (1) country estate; (2) mobile home; (3) conventional; (4) new town development; (5) resort-open space communities; and (6) retirement communities. Survey data were used to establish subdivision development patterns in the study region. Regional subdivision development patterns were used to locate subdivision impact areas as they relate to man-made reservoirs of 100,000 acre feet or more. Major subdivision impact was found on two of seven reservoirs. Further investigation disclosed that subdivision development was located near the water-line of both reservoirs. A county record documentary survey was utilized to determine the total population of subdivisions in a two mile radius of the normal water level which defined the study area
A heuristic approach to site planning by Richard Roland Tangum( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation suggests a beginning framework to help raise the "literacy" of professionals engaged in site planning. A heuristic approach is proposed to assist site planners in evaluating and solving environmental problems. This task is accomplished through an approach in which environmental data, ideas, concepts and theories of site planning can be assimilated. For professionals engaged in site planning, the approach offers the opportunity to simulate, evaluate and resolve possible solutions before implementation on the site. First, this dissertation reviews the major approaches to site planning and then defines the environmental context and major forms of the site planning process. The dissertation examines the major approaches to site planning in the context of: relationship to a total site planning process; consideration of the natural and man-made components of a site; and development of methods for the collection, analysis and evaluation of resource data. The environmental context includes the natural and man-made environments, as well as the changes that occur therein. Data are accumulated and analyzed within a framework termed the "environmental inventory". Examining the three major forms of the site planning process (sequential, cyclic and evolutionary) which have emerged to date reveals pertinent characteristics, such as the approach to tasks and the relationship of performance criteria. The heuristic approach to site planning is one which uses principles as guides for actions. It is not bound by preconceptions within the site; the principles serve as action guides, bringing the planning process to fulfillment. The residential area within the El Molino Urban Renewal Project of San Marcos, Texas serves to test this heuristic approach to site planning. The case study illustrates how the heuristic approach, through the environmental inventory, logically and comprehensively provides a framework for relating relevant data. Further, the case study reveals current inadequacies in programs and legislation pertaining to site planning. The heuristic approach shows that site planning is a professional endeavor, requiring an in-depth knowledge of the process by its practitioners
