Yes, many thousands of them. These are our ancestors. Anarchist societies must have been successful, otherwise none of us would be here. This study explores a performance measurement system for a dynamic supply chain partnership in a cross cultural context. An initial framework is constructed by reviewing the existing literature, followed by an in depth case study in the Chinese automotive industry, where the framework is refined to address the multi cultural setting. A performance measurement, system which includes the relationship strategy and operational measurement criteria for a supply chain partnership, has been developed.
Youth unemployment in most EU countries is already unacceptably high. If nothing is done, the only realistic outcome will be more arrivals, followed by social unrest. Disillusioned migrants and resentful locals do not make good bedfellows. The aims of this paper are twofold: to describe a doctoral research project that investigated the theme of openness in fashion, and to discuss a distinctive, practice based approach to design research that emerged through this process. This approach uses the generative processes of designing and making, in collaboration with participants, to investigate research questions at multiple levels: from micro scale practical challenges to much broader social issues. The project in question explored the potential for opening and altering existing knitted fabrics while simultaneously investigating the role of homemade clothes in challenging the conventional fashion system; it also considered opportunities for amateur knitters to engage in creative design.
Under the new security policy all guests will be fully screened upon entry into MLS venues. The screenings will be conducted via a full pat down or with the use of a search wand or magnetometers. Anyone with an item that does not pass security measures will be asked to either take the item back to their vehicle or dispose of it.
When we put on these surveillance devices, we all become spies, or scrooglers, of everything and everyone around us. By getting us to wear their all seeing digital eyeglasses, Google are metamorphosing us into human versions of those Street View vans now thankfully banned in Germany which crawl, like giant cockroaches, around our cities documenting our homes.Neither Orwell nor Hitchcock at their most terrifyingly dystopian could have dreamt up Google Glass. According to Google co founder Sergey Brin, quoted by tech website Mashable, “Glass will also have an automatic picture taking mode, snapping pics at a preset intervals (such as every 5 seconds).”Pics every 5 seconds! Gulp.
