Abstract
Memorable places are mysterious sources of happiness in each person as their remembrances of these arise. Rio de Janeiro has that special ability of brightening up my day simply from the memories that come up as I recall my family and my trip to this unforgettably Marvelous City in 2013. My expectations of this place were based off previous knowledge of its wonderful scenery, which was the main purpose for our destination choice. I soon discovered though, that Rio is a magical place, full of surprises at every corner as smells, touch and taste even, add to the experience of viewing such amazing landscapes. It became a memorable place in no time, as it provided a perfect setting for the formation of pleasant moments with my family. I sensed a bond created between this location and myself throughout the trip, which is understood through the analysis of the place attachment theory. Each of three dimensions in the PPP model used by Scannel and Gifford influenced the way in which this strong connection was formed. The aspects, person, process and place demonstrate how one’s cultural background could create more powerful links between an individual and their immediate environment. The use of space as a method of interaction, or the proxemics theory, also shows reasons why Rio de Janeiro became so memorable to me by explaining how distinct distances are used by different cultures in order to effectively communicate.

The Unforgettable Marvelous City
Throughout my life I had never visited too many places in my own country because it is so expensive. In 2013 though, my family decided it was time to visit the Marvelous City, as Rio de Janeiro is called worldwide. I had seen truly striking views combining nature and human-made constructions in pictures of this capital although my experiences…...

...turismo rural-comunitario como herramienta de fortalecimiento de identidad en escolares limeños” “Propuesta de desarrollo turístico en la Cuenca del Río Huaura” Descripción del problema La identidad nacional es un valor poco presente en la realidad actual del país. Esto se refleja mayormente en los jóvenes quienes tienen la mentalidad que el éxito solo lo encontraran en el extranjero. También en empresarios que emprenden negocios fuera del país e invierten en entornos ya desarrollados cuando al interior del Perú hay mucho por invertir. Centrándonos en los escolares limeños, muchos de ellos no conocen las riquezas y oportunidades que tiene la Región Lima para desarrollar, ya sean de escuelas públicas o privadas, o del estrato económico que pertenezcan. Por otro lado, la diferencia en el desarrollo económico entre Lima Metropolitana y Lima Regiones es abismal, estando geográficamente tan cera. Estos serán los frentes a atacar en esta investigación. Sobre el sentimiento de identidad nacional en escolares, probablemente la currícula escolar no toca muy a fondo el tema y cuando lo hacen, a veces gráficamente con ferias por ejemplo, generalmente tiene que ver con calificaciones, convirtiéndolo de carácter obligatorio e impositivo. También ocurre porque existen polos, escuelas tan precarias que no pueden realizar visitas fuera de su entorno, y escuelas con cierto nivel que pueden viajar a provincias e incluso al extranjero (todo esto a nivel de ocio, más no participación......

Social Differences in Rio de Janeiro

...Soziale Unterschiede in Rio Rio De Janeiro, auch bekannt als "Die wunderbare Stadt" ist ein Name, der die Aufmerksamkeit der Menschen anzieht. Abgesehen von ihrer außergewöhnlichen natürlichen Schönheit und ihre Geschichte und Erbe, ist Rio De Janeiro auch die Hauptattraktion für Touristen aus der ganzen Welt und ist eine der meistbesuchten Städte in Brasilien. Aber diese "wunderbare" Stadt ist auch für eine Sache bekannt: die hohe Soziale Unterschiede. Auf der einen Seite der Straße stehen die Herrenhäuser während auf der anderen Seite die schmutzigsten Slums. Während die reichen ihre Zeit in fabelhaften Restaurants und glamourösen Strände geniessen, müssen die Armen genügende Münzen zusammenkratzen, um ihre Familie zu ernähren. Die Menschen beten täglich für Abwechslung. Sogar die kleinen Kinder beten für eine Ausbildung, für Lebensmittel, für sauberes Wasser. Leben werden von Krankheiten und Infektionen genommen, die geheilt werden könnten, aber die Menschen sind zu arm, um sich die richtige Medikamente zu leisten. Sie sind von Gewalt und Kriminalität, Drogen und bewaffneten Banden regiert, und ihre traurigen Stimmen können nicht gehört werden. Die Stadt ist zu sehr damit beschäftigt, Vorbereitungen für die WM 2014 zu machen. Nach der bestätigung, dass Brasilien Gastgeber der Weltmeisterschaft sing, sind die Behörden von Rio De Janeiro in Slum-Gebieten gegangen haben die bewaffneten Banden gewaltsam evakuiert, viele unschuldige Bewohner während des gesamten......

Attachment

...way agree with the (Ainsworth & Bell, 1970) article and the information being provided regarding attachment. Attachment is a deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time (Bordens & Abbott, 2011). Attachment does not have to be reciprocal. One person may have an attachment with an individual which is not shared. Attachment is characterized by specific behaviors in children, such as seeking proximity with the attachment figure when upset (Bordens & Abbott, 2011).Attachment behavior in adults towards the child includes responding sensitively and appropriately to the child’s needs. Such behavior appears universal across cultures. Attachment theory provides an explanation of how the parent-child relationship emerges and influences subsequent development. Attachment theory in psychology originates with the seminal work of John Bowlby (Bordens & Abbott, 2011). Stages of Attachment A study of 60 babies at monthly intervals is conducted for the first 18 months of life (longitudinal study). The children can be studied in their home. The children can be visited monthly for approximately one year, their interactions with their parents are observed, and parents are interviewed and evidence for the development of attachment is that the baby shows separation anxiety after the parent left (Bordens & Abbott, 2011). Up to 3 months – Indiscriminate attachments. The newborn is predisposed to attach to any human. Most babies respond equally to any......

Attachment

...prototype, are the ones who form the first attachment to an infant. How we help the infant grow on these attachments will set the stage for his/her social well being. Attachment relationships should provide a foundation for social learning. Infants of depressed mothers are at risk. They show depressed social behavior, not only with their mothers but also when interacting with strangers. (Steinberg, Vandell, Bornstein. Development: Infancy through Adolescence p153) Researchers have found that attachment patterns established early in life can lead to a number of outcomes. Children who had a healthy and secure attachment during infancy will have a stronger self esteem. The will be less dependent and do better in school with higher grades. Their relationships with other people will be stronger. They are less likely to suffer from anxiety and depression. There are plenty of factors that will affect the social/emotional behaviors of a child: the relationship of parents, the poverty level in which the child is born, and the positive nurturing that the mother shows to the infants needs. In healthy and stable environments mothers are not dependent on infants, however we learn from the child and meet their needs and treat them as a part of who we are. Fathers will be less likely to be the attachment figure if the baby has a difficult temperament. Infants are less likely to attach to their fathers in very early years. That attachment will happen later in adolescence.......

10 Most Dangerous Place to Live in

...------------------------------------------------- The 10 Most Dangerous Places To Live In 2014 ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- The new Social Progress Index 2014 has just been released with its plethora of talking points for policy junkies and pedestrian pundits alike. We’re feeling a little macabre, so rather than talk about the state of world health or freedom or clean water, we’ve decided to make our first order of business: Where in the world are you most likely to come to harm in 2014? Before you list off the many countries you can think of that regularly came up in reports of violent protests, suicide bombings, drone strikes, missile attacks and other news-worthy events of the past 12 months, know that some of the most unsafe countries this year are among the hottest vacationing spots in the world. No, that has nothing to do with bad seafood or shark attacks (which rarely happen; leave the sharks alone). This is about the frequency of murder, crime and fatal traffic incidents, as well as more sweeping trends like human rights abuses, political terror and genocidal violence. Many countries which ranked as ‘most dangerous’ either fall into the “beach paradise” category or the “child gangs, drug cartels and car bombings” category (or a little of both). Apparently tourism can exist as close to violence as political instability, inter-warring and institutionalized drug trafficking. But before you......

Crime Report Rio de Janeiro

...Crime in Rio de Janeiro: Possible Solutions to look into 1.0 INTRODUCTION The 2014 FIFA World Cup was scheduled to hold in Brazil and 400,000 fans were expected for the quadrennial tournament but some concerns arose prior to the tournament that had to do with the growing rate of crime in the country especially Rio de Janeiro which is Brazil’s biggest tourist destination (Biller, 2014). In Rio de Janeiro, robbery numbers on public transport increased from 345 to 629 in August 2013 and assault with intent to rob rose by 37% (Radnedge, 2013). Due to the level of corruption and violence the police themselves in Rio inflict on the public, citizens are not encouraged to report criminal activities because they are scared of the police authorities and do not respect them (Brazil, 2014). During the first half of the year 2013 the police were held responsible for the death of 362 citizens in Rio de Janeiro and even though the police report these loss of lives as a casualty due to gun fights with criminals, the Human Rights Watch and some other groups report that some of these killings result from unconditional use of force and others do not (Human Rights Watch, 2014). All these problems highlighted shows lack of public security and poor police conduct is plaguing the city of Rio de Janeiro and adequate measures should be taken by the government to resolve these problems. In the year 2007, the Brazilian government pledged £850m to the betterment of Rio de Janeiro’s......

Attachment

...From the moment we are born we are reliant on others for our survival. The attachment patterns established in infancy affect how we as humans perceive ourselves, interact with those around us and live in our world. Infants who experience confusing, frightening or broken emotional communications during infancy often grow into adolescents and later, adults who have trouble understanding their own emotions and those of others and have difficulty building and maintaining relationships and leading successful lives. Infant Attachment as defined in our textbook, is the close emotional bond between an infant and its primary caregiver. According to John Bowlby (1969,1989 as cited in King), in his theory of attachment, the infant and the mother instinctively form an attachment, he believed that infants are biologically pre programmed to form these attachments, that an infant’s attachment behaviors are instinctive and will be activated by any conditions that seem to threaten the achievement of proximity, such a separation, insecurity and fear. The way Bowlby saw it; infants are born with an instinct to survive. They signal their needs to their caregiver by crying, clinging, searching. The responsiveness of the caregiver determines whether the infant feels loved, secure, and confidant. The way in which the caregiver reacts, also determines what type of attachment the infant will develop. Bowlby thought that our early relationships with our caregivers serve as our schemas......

Salvador de Mendonça

...ANA MARIA GARRIDO ALVARIM A atuação de Salvador de Mendonça como Ministro Plenipotenciário em Washington (1890-1898):construindo a República e o americanismo pragmático BRASÍLIA 2014 1 INTRODUÇÃO Neste trabalho, tratar-se-á de analisar o período em que Salvador de Mendonça serviu como ministro plenipotenciário em Washington (1889-1898). As relações BrasilEstados Unidos foram fortalecidas em um momento de instabilidade interna brasileira, decorrente da mudança de regime. Como se verá, Mendonça foi o principal agente diplomático nas relações entre Brasil e Estados Unidos nesse período, assim como teve função importante em momentos de instabilidade interna com reflexos internacionais. Na seção 1 deste trabalho, será verificada a conjuntura brasileira daquela época, a qual restringiu e estimulou as atividades de Salvador de Mendonça junto ao governo americano. A passagem de um governo monárquico para um regime republicano acarretou instabilidades institucionais internas, que colocavam em risco o futuro da recém- proclamada República brasileira. Diante desse cenário, fazia-se premente uma aproximação com os Estados Unidos, tendo em vista o temor de que as monarquias europeias inspiravam aos novos donos do poder no Brasil. Temia-se que elas estimulassem um movimento de retorno às antigas instituições. Verifica-se que a atuação de Salvador de Mendonça era, portanto, uma possível estratégia de sobrevivência do novo regime. A seção 2 dividir-se-á em......

Attachment

...According to John Bowlby, Attachment is the “lasting psychological connectedness between human beings”. It essentially refers to the “nurturing bond of physical and emotional love and care formed between parents and their child in the early years of development”. ( Bowlby, 1969) Attachment involves discovering and acknowledging our strengths and vulnerabilities in a relationship as time progresses. Bowlby’s theory states that the first bonds of a child has a huge impact that will continue throughout his life as he begins to form more relationships. The first bond of a child is usually one with his mother. Parents have a great role to play in the lives of their children. They look up to their parents as a source of strength, hope, love and encouragement. However in some situations, children are left with their care givers or grandparents therefore having only limited opportunities and time to form secure and solid emotional attachments. An example of this would be OFWs or people from the province that move to Manila in order to earn a living for their families. These people sacrifice their time with their families and even fail to see their children grow up. Due to the absence of parents in a child’s growth and development, caregivers, grandparents and guardians will have to fill in a huge role to play in a child’s life. The caregiver is then given the responsibility to provide reliability to earn a sense of trust from the child. As the child becomes more attached to his care...

...Legal Systems/Issues (Pei Shyan Low 4518416) 3.0 Legal Systems The most common types of legal systems adopted by countries, is that of common law and civil law. Rio de Janeiro is one of the 27 states in Brazil, which happens to be a civil law country. The supreme rule in Brazil is the Federal Constitution (IALS 2014). The Brazilian legal system is established on codes and legislation enacted by the Federal Constitution, and also by the legislatures from the states and municipalities (LOC 2015). Brazil’s judicial system consists of the Federal Supreme Court, the Superior Court of Justice and a range of provincial federal courts (IALS 2014). The municipal government in Rio is made up of executive and legislative powers. The mayor holds the highest position in the municipality, who is elected by the majority vote (LOC 2015). The executive power is held by the municipality (Xavier and Magalhães 2003). The municipal chamber of Rio de Janeiro holds the legislative power (Xavier and Magalhães 2003). This overview is created for Disney who aim to broaden their knowledge of Brazil’s legal system for the launching of a new theme park in Rio. In order for Disney to ensure success in its expansion in Rio, the legal issues and implications must be considered in order to predict any risks they may face in the future. 3.1 Importance of Legal Considerations The Walt Disney Company has a fairly long record in franchising, and they have produced theme parks all around the globe.......

Rios

...Rio Curso de água natural, superficial e regular, que pode desaguar num outro rio, num lago ou no mar. É delimitado pelas margens, faixas de terreno contíguo ao leito. O leito de um rio é o espaço de terreno que pode ser coberto pelas águas. Engloba os mochões - ilhas cultiváveis formadas nos rios -, as lodeiras - locais de acumulação de lodo - e os areais - zonas de acumulação de areia. Podem distinguir-se três tipos de leito: - leito aparente, sulco por onde normalmente correm as águas e as matérias que transportam; - leito de inundação ou de cheia, espaço do vale do rio que pode ser inundado quando ocorrem cheias; - leito menor ou de estiagem, zona do leito aparente que fica a descoberto quando a quantidade de água do rio diminui, em consequência de uma seca prolongada. Para o estudo de um rio e dos seus leitos recorre-se à elaboração de cortes transversais em determinadas zonas do seu percurso - perfis transversais. No percurso de um rio podem distinguir-se três zonas, o curso superior, o curso médio e o curso inferior. Os rios possuem um certo dinamismo, apresentando actividade geológica que engloba a erosão, o transporte e a deposição de materiais. A erosão de um rio passa pela extracção progressiva de materiais do seu leito e margens. Estes materiais resultam da meteorização física e química das rochas, devida à pressão exercida pelas águas do rio em movimento sobre as saliências do leito e margens. A acção erosiva dos rios é mais acentuada em épocas...

Comunidade de Segurança Brasileira

...centros de poder que se consolidaram na segunda metade do século XX, algumas ideias até então pouco saudadas ganharam força na tentativa de encontrar soluções que não a lógica predominantemente realista para a vida estatal dentro do Sistema Internacional. E no contexto atual de mudanças na hierarquia dos Estados, o Brasil surge como um ator com grande potencial para desenvolver-se e tornar-se um ativo participante, e até protagonista, nesse concerto. Dotado de um entorno estratégico onde a percepção de ameaças de conflitos interestatais pode ser considerada menor do que em outros pontos do planeta, o Brasil tem condições de, usando as ferramentas certas, concentrar seus esforços no desenvolvimento nacional e na solução de seus problemas internos e, utilizando da cooperação e da confiança mútua, conseguir projeção regional e global. Para isso, o conceito de “security community”, de Karl W. Deutsch, vem sendo utilizado pelo nível político brasileiro como a resposta às aspirações brasileiras em termos de relações exteriores e assuntos de defesa. Nesse trabalho, conheceremos mais a fundo o conceito supracitado, suas principais características analisadas de uma perspectiva construtivista de relações internacionais, seus tipos, pressupostos e dinâmica de estabelecimento, bem como tentaremos identificar, no entorno brasileiro, quais as possibilidades para aplicação, os desafios impostos e os possíveis caminhos a serem seguidos na busca pelo estabelecimento de uma “Comunidade de......
