As noted in the table, the mean score for the high EA group is significantly higher than the mean score for the low EA group.The mean scores of these three statements were used to measure the significance of the high and low ecological affect and knowledge groups.The results supported the hypothesis that high EA differs significantly from low EA on an AGP scale.The fifth question on the Ecological Affect scale had reverse weighting, meaning that marking 1 was calculated as having 5 points and marking 5 was assigned 1 point.Ecological Affect (EA) refers to a person viewing him or herself in a particular situation or being influenced, personally, by particular circumstances.

Footprint analysis considers one key component, life-supporting natural capital, or ecological capital for short.What does a “per person national Footprint” actually mean?Natural capital: Natural capital can be defined as all of the raw materials and natural cycles on Earth.Main functions include resource production (such as fish, timber or cereals), waste assimilation (such as CO2 absorption or sewage decomposition) and life-support services (such as UV protection, biodiversity, and water cleansing or climate stability).The biocapacity of an area is calculated by multiplying the actual physical area by the yield factor and the appropriate equivalence factor.

This is in contrast to euthanasia, where another person takes a more active role in bringing about a person’s death.However, in active euthanasia, we are being merciful towards the person by just to the extent that we try ending the constant suffering of the person.– for example, because she is a hopelessly ill or handicapped newborn infant, or because illness or accident have rendered a formerly competent person permanently incompetent, without that person having previously indicated whether she would or would not like euthanasia under certain circumstances.This philosophy provides a foundation for the environmental, ecology and green movements and has fostered a new system of environmental ethics advocating wilderness preservation, hum...

The so-called ecology friendly design consists of some rules and principles that need to be followed so that it can be “green”.The idea of a good design varies from person to person.It seems rational to apply architectural ideas to restore old items on the streets, however, not many people think about ecology when they are offered to make a new architectural thing.Young people who are becoming active agents of the society can get inspired by the ideas of green design and ecology friendly architecture in combination with cradle-to-cradle design.Sustainable Design: Ecology, Architecture, and Planning.

The advantage of using ecological approach is that it focuses on the relationships in transactions between the systems in the ecology thus minimising the predisposition of the professionals to think exclusively in linear terms thus adapting a wide range of intervention hence exploring issues such as social support, social capital and socio-economic difficulties that people experience (Garbarino 1990).This implies that the psychodynamic theory is based on research that was done solely on males and then taken to mean all human behaviour which itself is a bias in favour of males and thus partial.Therefore, basing on the ecological perspective, the social work will have to work within Mark’s ecology (Bilson &Ross: 1999 p.70-71) to find o...

Moreover, in a national morbidity survey, researchers found that 60.Epidemiological studies conducted by different researchers and specialists have found that approximately, three quarters of the majority population in the U. S. has experienced a single traumatic phenomenon in their life (Green, 1994).Since majority of the population are prone to experience traumatic events such as accidents, tragedy and other ecological disaster, it is important that people have enough understanding and are knowledgeable about the possible psychological or mental health consequences caused by these traumatic events.With these data, we could affirm that disasters are common events or phenomena.2 percent of adult women in the United States have been invol...

The number of friends, the friends’ social position, and the place of residence may be important cultural factors in explaining ecological consciousness, because they reflect different socialization conditions in which the consumer acts.Some previous studies the meaning of social responsibility and it is an extent to which an individual feels morally responsible to take part (Tucker, 1980; Schwepker and Cornwell, 1991; and Mainerei, 1997).Midgley and Dowling (1978) had argued that the basic idea of a contingency model is that to affect individual variables on new product adoption may depend upon other personal variables or situational variables.We hypothesize that the ecologically concerned consumer is an internally controlled person who...

Ecology in public administration was primarily introduced by Professor John M. Gaus, one of the early pioneers of public administration.Ecology in public administration became a vital instrument for comprehending, directing, and modulating the forceful change in the public administration.According to Gaus, the plans, programs, policies, and design of public administration is influenced by factors concerning the physical environment or ecology, and that any structure and living thing existing in a given area has an interrelationship with the surrounding environment.For Gaus, merging public administration with the concept of ecology helps in establishing a more novel way of conducting things and is actually related to the concept of change...

These are explained as follows: Entrenched in both cultural ecology and evolutionary theory, this approach began with an emphasis on adaptation, defined as behavioral or biological changes at either the individual or group level that support survival in a given environment as the core concept in the field.There is thus a medical explanation for any illness that a person may suffer from.Initially, the central principle of medical ecology was that the type of relationships that existed within different social groups was closely associated with the health status of the members in the groups.Among the primary perspectives found in medical anthropology are medical ecology, interpretive or meaning-centered anthropology, and critical medical an...

However, this is contrasted by Yuille and Cutshall, who have proven in a real-life situation that memory is not affected by leading questions – however, they did not ask for further details after one week like Loftus had, therefore allowing Loftus’ conclusion of memory being easily distortable to still be true.Participants were also not selected by the researchers, and instead were voluntary; meaning one gender of participants may outnumber the other gender.This experiment also lacks ecological validity as they were essentially not real-life witnesses of the event, meaning their recall would not be affected by emotions felt if participants witnessed first-hand.Loftus and Palmer support this argument of unreliability and had obtained find...

In this case, the example is that Kevin looks at the emoticon and sees only a colon and right parenthesis, but to furthermore find more perception in this symbol, top down perception is needed.Bottom up perception is the visual environmental view of what we see and how we interpret and distinguish certain things apart from each other, while top down perception is how we furthermore establish a different meaning for it.Direct Ecological (bottom up) perception is an inductive reasoning process.However, Kevin, a person who has no social interaction through the computer and/or Internet, sees this simply as a colon placed next to a right parenthesis sign.For example, a person called Eddie is an active user of a social network called Facebook,...

Whilst developing this argument, also being taken into consideration will be the contribution political ecology has had within and towards development and development studies, in order to establish what the role and emphasis is of resulting work that the approach of political ecology has in the ever expanding field of critical development, evaluating, as noted by Muldavin (2008), ‘where ‘we’ have been in the past, where we are today, and where we may be going in the future’ and whether political ecology can ever manifest itself within a structured and conclusive framework or whether the approach will only suffice to be ‘all things to all people’ (Blaikie, 2008).Shiva, V.
