Types of caches Traditional cache The basic cache type hidden on the place defined by coordinates in header of listing. Multi cache The geocacher usually has to go over the stages find some information at every stage and at finish calculate coordinates of final cache.
Mysterypuzzle cache The coordinates of the final cache are usually hidden in some cipher image or text and the geocacher has to discover it.

There are two types of aggression hostile affective aggression and instrumental predatory or goal oriented aggression.
Sometimes a regional approach is not the right choice when it comes to the municipal delivery of state and federal funding, police protection and other services municipalities are responsible for because legally they can ' t use grants and other governmental funds outside their municipalities, said Ed Messner, outgoing president of the West Shore Chamber of Commerce. Messner, who had been with the West Shore chamber for 41 years, retired at the end of last year.
He is the chamber ' s longest-serving president, heading it for 36 years. Other times, the cost savings don ' t outweigh the service benefits, or there aren ' t cost savings. Haas Jr. It is not a stretch to say that Frank Haas Jr. A vocal and longtime proponent of regionalism, Haas, 83, had a career that included multiple positions in state, local and national government.
Q: Why have you made regionalism such a cornerstone of your career? A: I think you have to start out by defining regionalism. Almost no two people define it the same way. Some people think of it as cooperating between municipalities, others think of it as consolidation between municipal facilities and municipal services. And the fact is, it means whatever the speaker says it means. Central Pennsylvania is stuck in a twisted maze of segmentation.
The disadvantages of fragmented government have grown for decades. But it ' s a problem that ' s becoming more apparent in the shadow of the financial recession that has left the state ' s various levels of government strapped for cash. Examples are seemingly endless of how a multitude of local government entities and the divisiveness of area organizations are holding back the midstate.
The commonwealth ' s struggling city school districts, the area ' s complex permitting processes and the region ' s inability to work as one to market itself to the outside world are just the beginning. There are more than municipalities and nearly 60 school districts among Cumberland , Dauphin, Lancaster , Lebanon and York counties. This fragmented system of boroughs, townships and cities dates back to the origins of the commonwealth.
The State - Columbia , SC. Significantly, the new plant sets the stage for a regional approach as we tackle other growth challenges. This facility has been a true collaboration many years in the making. The city of Cayce , the town of Lexington and Lexington County have worked together for the good of our citizens. All have played an important role in moving this critical, forward-looking piece of infrastructure from the drawing board to reality.
This plant is an investment that will serve the people and businesses of this area well into the future. It is a symbol of a new Cayce, a city focused on smart growth that ' s strategic, progressive and pro-active. It ' s also a symbol for the entire Midlands of what can be accomplished with a spirit of regionalism and collaboration.
As a newspaper that serves the entire Triad, we hope Knight will fulill that promise. We have a vested interest in the three major cities marketing the Triad as a single entity to companies considering relocation, in integrating the talent pool to nourish more vital business activities, in having new venues like the Aquarius Music Hall in High Point succeed by tapping into a regional market and in improving transportation in and around the Triad. Automation Alley is a terrific example of a county initiative that became regional to the betterment of the county and the region.
The haggling over aerotropolis and Cobo management has at times sounded more dedicated to killing action than to improving the plan on the table. Another buried treasure in the story: Substantial majorities feel optimistic about the future of the region, including 79 percent of city dwellers nowhere to go but up!
The divisions that seem to drive the gloom and doom angle come from the analysis of how people feel about the services that their local government provides. Not surprisingly, city residents feel their services are poor and quality of life is declining, while suburbanites are much more content. But it can advance regional competitiveness and may create the conditions for addressing the stark racial divisions between city and suburbs. Ignore the headline--this is cause for celebration. The agency ' s draft plan suggests that keeping talented young professionals in Connecticut , becoming more competitive with other states, and encouraging "smart growth" rather than more suburban sprawl are the state ' s chief goals.
Some are very specific, such as reducing the size of the General Assembly, eliminating the commercial utility surcharge on small business, and building the Springfield to New Haven commuter rail system with a spur to Bradley International Airport. Others are broad, including: " Encourage regionalism and give priority for federal and state programs to those communities that form regional partnerships.
The recommendations begin at Page Connecticut will become an increasingly poorer state, unable to meet the basic needs of its residents unless our political leaders confront these issues with long-term strategic thinking and action. Members of an informal statewide group of clergy have been meeting and offer the following New Year ' s advice to our elected officials: Love thy neighbor.
The partisan sniping and ideological brinksmanship that characterized last year ' s endless budget debates and which are beginning to rear their ugly heads now are at best a distraction, at worst a monumental failure of leadership. Please do not sacrifice Connecticut ' s economic future for the sake of winning short-term political battles against each other.
Trust that we are stronger together. Accept the reality that Connecticut ' s long-standing home rule system is unsustainable. There is widespread agreement that regional cost-sharing will lead to greater government efficiency, yet we still lack the will to abandon home rule. Regionalism ' s day has come. The Soccer Daily - U. National Soccer Players. Once upon a time, there was an idea that the future for a handful of professional sports teams in North America was regional. Why tie yourself to one city, when you could take a broader place name?
Even better if you were justifying a stadium far from a city center. Considering the relative marketing value of regionalism versus city-specificity for the and World Series winners, who really can say. Major League Soccer has already been through the regional issue. They fell for a concept invented by the World League of American Football, You normally end up having to make corrections, and that tends to make the whole thing seem a little silly.
It ' s a very good reason for not looking forward to the Pennsylvania Union. Get it right the first time, and re-branding never needs to be an issue. Saturday, December 19, was a big day in Kotzebue , Alaska. The opening included songs, Eskimo dances, and the opportunity for people of the region to tour the facility.

It offers people of the region and visitors from around the world a high-quality interpretive experience of the natural and cultural history of the region, a variety of educational programs, and personal administrative services. Mayor David N. Cicilline has submitted legislation to the General Assembly this week that would empower seven Providence County communities to regionalize municipal departments.
Cicilline, who has been meeting quietly with officials from the six other communities since September, says the proposals are purposefully vague as he expects the communities to work out the logistics following Assembly approval of the enabling legislation. That ' s the goal of this. Tomasello, a developmental psychologist, is co-director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig , Germany.
Tomasello finds the helping is not enhanced by rewards, suggesting that it is not influenced by training. It seems to occur across cultures that have different timetables for teaching social rules. For parents who may think their children somehow skipped the cooperative phase, Dr. Tomasello offers the reassuring advice that children are often more cooperative outside the home, which is why parents may be surprised to hear from a teacher or coach how nice their child is.
Inductive parenting is simply communicating with children about the effect of their actions on others and emphasizing the logic of social cooperation. The shared intentionality lies at the basis of human society, Dr. Tomasello argues. Tomasello writes. Resilience Science. The Arctic Oscillation is unusually strong right now. This image illustrates how cold December was compared to the average of temperatures recorded in December between and Blue points to colder than average land surface temperatures, while red indicates warmer temperatures.
Much of the Northern Hemisphere experienced cold land surface temperatures, but the Arctic was exceptionally warm. This weather pattern is a tale-tell sign of the Arctic Oscillation. Synopsis: As the world becomes more interconnected through travel and electronic communication, many believe that physical places will become less important. This provocative book surveys the globe, from London and Cape Town to New York and Beijing , contending that regions rise—or fall—due to their location, not only within nations but also on the world map.
The Wealth and Poverty of Regions maps out how a heady mix of size, infrastructure, proximity, and cost will determine which urban centers become the thriving metropolises of the future, and which become the deserted cities of the past. Engagingly written , the book provides insight to the past, present, and future of regions. Summary: Are we the first civilization to try and innovate our way out of climate change? How have past societies engineered sustainable solutions to a shifting world?
During his seminar, van der Leeuw explores this research into the past, as well as its application to our current global predicament. Professor van der Leeuw … His research interests have been in archaeological theory, reconstruction of ancient ceramic technologies, regional archaeology, ancient and modern man-land relationships, GIS and modelling, and Complex Systems Theory.
He did archaeological fieldwork in Syria , Holland and France , and conducted ethno-archaeological studies in the Near East, the Philippines and Mexico. Since , he has been involved in a series of research projects financed by the European Union in the area of socio-natural interactions and environmental problems.
In , the Dutch-speaking territory of Suriname joined and in the French-speaking country of Haiti did likewise. The whole idea was for regional economic integration and cooperation , but it seems as though there are far too many obstacles in achieving this goal. One of the concerns is that Barbados does not recognise economic citizenship, which is being touted by some countries and, despite the CARICOM Single Market, a few countries trade with countries outside the region.
It is said that the University of the West Indies UWI and the West Indies cricket team have brought strong regional unity and it is hoped that every effort will be made not only by the political leaders but by organisations and groups for more integration. Korea Herald - Seoul , South Korea. Ahead of the June local elections, the government will push more aggressively for regional development policies.
He said the government will accelerate its new mega-regional economic zone scheme which emphasizes economic agglomeration, regional interconnection and specialized competitiveness. The economic recovery must also be felt in the regions," he said. Financial Times - UK. Multilateralism is not one thing but many. The issue takes on a new urgency in the aftermath of the recent Copenhagen conference, which brought together representatives of governments in an unsuccessful effort to reach a formal, binding and comprehensive accord.
Whatever its consequences for climate change, Copenhagen is but the most recent reminder that classic multilateralism is increasingly difficult to achieve. One is regionalism. The proliferation of bilateral and regional trade pacts most recently in Asia is in part a reaction to the failure to conclude a global trade accord. A second alternative is functional multilateralism - coalitions of the willing and relevant.
A global accord on climate will prove elusive for some time to come. But that need not translate into international inaction. Multilateralism in the 21st century is, like the century itself, likely to be more fluid and, at times, messy than what we are used to.
Residents of Moyale in the upper eastern region of Kenya , along the border with Ethiopia , are used to unpredictable and mostly dry weather. Golbo is an administrative division in Moyale. According to the Moyale DMO, Sora, there is a need for better timing and coordination of drought responses as well as their integration into development programmes. At present, some 3. It is time for a whole new approach. Front-line biology cannot function without these resources, so solutions must be found at both national and international levels.
What is the right model?

B92 - Belgrade , Serbia. They claim that the adopted government decree goes against all the guarantees given to officials of the Bosniak Muslim minority by the government. Ugljanin said that the problem occurred because of "oversights made by the state administration". The map of the statistical regions was made by the Statistical Office, and was checked by the European Agency for Statistics, which confirmed that it met all European criteria before adoption, reports said.
In order for a territory to become a statistical region , it must have a population of , The law on regional development was adopted in July Maghreb Arabe Presse - Morocco. Its mission is to propose a general conception of regionalization, while bearing in mind its relevant dimensions and the role of competent constitutional institutions in its implementation.
The Conservatives ' regeneration policy is built around the idea of localism outlined in their Control Shift green paper last February. They want to minimise central government ring-fencing and give councils and local communities more say in how to spend their funding allocations. But policy detail is still lacking.
We won ' t know for sure what the Tories would change until they are actually in power. Indeed, they might scrap most of the RDAs. According to Blume: "The future of regional governance has hit a brick wall and I think it ' s safe to say that RDAs are not long for this world. The tiers of bureaucracy would not work well for a Tory administration trying to cut costs and minimise state intervention. Socially Savvy - While the concept of a social networking guru might seem quaint by do you have a photocopier guru in your office?
While there are still a lot of carpetbaggers and "gee-whiz" cheerleaders playing in this market, I still find that there are a lot of people who don ' t have a basic understanding of social networking and are reluctant to ask for help. Transition United States.
This list is growing, and new Transition Initiatives can be found at:. After five years of operation, REALNEO has reached a critical mass of content and activity generating significant global traffic over time.

Please find the agenda attached. The Daily Score. On January 4, Seattle inaugurated a new, ultra-green mayor, which got me thinking comparatively. Which of the three largest Cascadian cities is the greenest? Not in plans and intentions and declarations but in facts? I recently pored over data from the Cascadia Scorecard and other sources.
The answer? No contest: Vancouver , BC. By reputation, Portland—darling of planners, No Northwest city is yet close to the destination of sustainability: carbon neutrality; widely shared prosperity; stable populations in strong communities; educational and economic opportunity for all; hyper-efficient use of natural resources; zero-pollution industries; and low-stuff, high-satisfaction lives. To achieve these goals, Portland , Seattle , and Vancouver —and all the other communities in Cascadia—will best succeed if they not only compete for the lead but also cooperate, sharing lessons.
In the race for sustainability, we all win only when we all finish. Still, competition can motivate us onward. And the city of Seattle , it turns out, is currently leading the city of Portland. Who knew? Robert LaValva: The New Amsterdam Market has evolved over the past four years—our first market was in October, —into a reinvented public-civic space that was last seen in New York in the 19th century. Marketplaces in New York functioned around a broader local community that cultivated relationships between regional vendors and purveyors, not just the farmers themselves.
How far does the New Amsterdam Market region extend? RV: Grocers, cheesemongers, and butchers as well as farmers are included as market vendors. They are sourcing from local farms and make up a collection of new small businesses that are contributing to the natural evolution of the growing awareness around food. With a huge metro area all around New York , a mile radius could prevent our desire to support the regrowth, reinvention and reimagination of a regional food system.
A Greener Indiana. With those funds, how can we have the most impact. He has seen many encouraging conversations about sustainability in not for profit organizations in the community, and discussions about merging, sharing objectives, and regionalization. OShea says that, as the largest funder in their area, several smaller foundations have come under their umbrella as donor advised or designated funds.
This enables them to have a conversation about their interests and the impact of their charitable dollars. European Regional Innovation Scoreboard 2. The RIS adopts the European Innovation Scoreboard approach at regional level and provides a richer analysis compared to previous reports due to the availability — for the first time — of more comprehensive regional Community Innovation Survey data.
The analysis shows that all major EU countries have diverse levels of performance and relative strengths within their regions, and that Spain , Italy and the Czech Republic are the most heterogeneous. The report marks a significant step forward in measuring regional innovation performance although it also shows that more progress is needed on the availability and quality of innovation data at regional level. Kerry B. Collison Asia News.
Australia repeatedly said the purpose of the Sydney conference was to start a conversation about regional architecture and that Australia did not want to be prescriptive. One of the findings of Woolcott ' s extensive consultations with regional leaders was that the region had no appetite for a new institution.
Notwithstanding this, the organisers tried to push the contrary view that we agreed existing institutions were inadequate and ineffective. Australia had expressed some views on the region ' s existing institutions and whether they could be used to evolve the Asia-Pacific community.
Gaia Emerging. It means running an economy the way nature runs a forest. Ecological principles mandate decentralization, deconcentration, and regionalization of our economic systems. As much as possible, there must be local production, consumption, and full-scale recycling, drawing from local resources.
It further mandates that no economic activity be allowed that is destructive or compromising to the ecological integrity of the region within which it takes place. Under bioregional economics," capital and resources are cycled within the region. As little as possible is allowed to "leak out. Please note that the event will include a simultaneous live, interactive webcast, for those who are not able to attend in person.
James G. As Professor McGann notes in an article written for Foreign Policy, think tanks, also called governments in waiting, are needed by leaders around the world to provide independent analysis, help set policy agendas, and bridge the gap between academia and policy-making. Professor McGann will discuss his recent work on a comprehensive ranking of the world ' s top think tanks, which serves as an insider ' s guide to the more think tanks around the globe.

In the wake of the financial crisis, the Assembly " America Building the Next Economy" took on a national emphasis with an in-depth look at what went wrong and what we could do to rebuild our economy with smarter investments. This year, we look at the role of innovation and technology in shaping better cities and regions.
Small Business Administration. The voice for small business in the federal government and the source for small business statistics. Recent reports:. A new study, The Nonemployer Startup Puzzle , examines basic statistics about the entry and exit of these very small firms. One of the four states that is not insolvent is an unlikely candidate for the distinction — North Dakota.
As Michigan management consultant Charles Fleetham observed last month in an article distributed to his local media:. The answer seems to be: its own bank. In fact, North Dakota has the only state-owned bank in the nation. The state legislature established the Bank of North Dakota in Fleetham writes that the bank was set up to free farmers and small businessmen from the clutches of out-of-state bankers and railroad men.
By law, the state must deposit all its funds in the bank, and the state guarantees its deposits. Three elected officials oversee the bank: the governor, the attorney general, and the commissioner of agriculture. It loans money to students over , outstanding loans , and it purchases municipal bonds from public institutions. Still, you may ask, how does that solve the solvency problem? The answer is no. Drugs money worth billions of dollars kept the financial system afloat at the height of the global crisis, the United Nations ' drugs and crime tsar has told the Observer.
Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, said he has seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were "the only liquid investment capital" available to some banks on the brink of collapse last year. This will raise questions about crime ' s influence on the economic system at times of crisis.
It will also prompt further examination of the banking sector as world leaders, including Barack Obama and Gordon Brown, call for new International Monetary Fund regulations. Speaking from his office in Vienna , Costa said evidence that illegal money was being absorbed into the financial system was first drawn to his attention by intelligence agencies and prosecutors around 18 months ago. In the second half of , liquidity was the banking system ' s main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor," he said.
The panel issued a report that says that countries need to find ways to measure happiness and well-being alongside raw economic growth. How would this new way of measuring growth affect poor countries? Bhutan , for example, declares a high "Gross National Happiness".
If a new well-being index is the reference for wealth, Bhutan may need no aid, trade or investment in spite of being one of the poorest countries of the world HH: The Stiglitz-Sen report is moving in the right direction but too slowly and is still trapped intellectually in the now-defunct "economics box". Complex human societies can never be measured by using a single discipline, especially by economics which was never a science. Economic calculations are blind to most of the social and environmental costs its narrow decisions impose on others, reframed as "externalities," i.
These uncounted impacts of financial decisions have accumulated unnoticed by economists until they are now crises of poverty, inequality, social exclusion and pollution - culminating in the greatest market failure: climate chaos. Stiglitz and Sen cannot see that new national indicators of "progress" must be multi-disciplinary and use many metrics as appropriate in the kind of systems approach used in the Calvert-Henderson Quality of Life Indicators, an alternative approach I designed with the Calvert Group, tracking 12 aspects of quality of life.
I am very cautious about "happiness" indicators because they are culturally dependent and too subjective e. Conservative economists and statisticians have seized on "happiness" surveys as an excuse to cut social welfare budgets.
So he has seen it all. He has been working to show how efficient financial markets theory is not right and we need a new paradigm.
