The report proposes a greener approach to the building and construction sector to ensure that that as domestic and commercial built environment increases, there should be measures that have to be followed in ensuring that buildings are energy efficient, with a view of reducing the carbon load caused by both domestic and commercial usage in heating, air conditioning and cooling. Other resources such as water should also be utilized in the best way possible to ensure sustainability. Some buildings such as L60 building in Melbourne and Comcast Center in Philadelphia have elaborated the leadership in built environment impact of reducing global warming through being energy efficient. Such buildings serve as the best examples that the program should be tailored to emulate and policies put in place, to enforce new and old buildings to accord to these policies. This is due to the wide ranging benefits that is achieved though energy efficient designs on the long term. There is to put into perspectives some of the technologies successfully implement in other places to use to achieve the same benefits. Sustainable Architecture & Building 1.0 Introduction: Overview The current globalised world in industrialization has led to massive increase in environmental pollution. The environmental pollution and the release of green house gases to the atmosphere are two issues that have become a menace to the current order in life. There are many organizations and government initiatives that have been set up to find measures that would be used to reduce the environmental impact of greenhouse gases, and saving of other resources such as water that are becoming scarce after each day. These organization and government policies have come up with measures that are targeted to the general manufacturing sectors and service sectors. This leaves an important cause of pollution unaddressed; the domestic and commercial houses. The Department of Built Environment and Urbanization has a responsibility to put up measures that if implemented in the building sector would have environmental degradation through release of green house gases reduced significantly. This call for implementing measures and policies that would require all the modern houses and those under construction to ensure efficiency in energy utility in a bid to ensure sustainable development that is friendly to the environment. There is a need for architects, clients and engineers to cooperate in designing and constructing domestic and commercial buildings to ensure the reduction of carbon load that is mainly caused by overreliance on conventional energy sources in both commercial and domestic buildings. As the country relies heavily on coal and hydropower sources of energy, the carbon burden produced by these energy sources has been increasing daily as the domestic and commercial power demands soars to record levels. The Australian households use about 92% of conventional energy, with only 8% being tapped form renewable sources. This has led the domestic usage or households to contribute to about

This dissertation proposal suggests a mixed methods design utilizing a questionnaire with close-ended and some open-ended questions to identify the perceptions of Bahraini Registered Nurses towards continuing formal education. This would allow for the identification of optimal approaches to support and engagement of nurses to design courses, which meet their own needs and those of their profession.
She has shown exemplary devotion to her work. Her creative disposition to further investigate the more complex area of mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of interstitial cystitis is highly appreciable as it would greatly enhance the treatment efficacy of the same.
The king of Saudi Arabia, King Abdullah bin Abdul-Aziz initiated the policy of building 500000 houses for the people of Saudi Arabia which has been decided to be built at a cost of 66.7 billion Dollars that is equivalent to 250 billion Riyals (Saudi Build, 2011).
Although this is and should be the priority, the safety of the rescued people in terms of health should also be prioritized. This is because, although people may be rescued from the disaster stricken areas, they also face the risk of contracting communicable diseases brought about by overcrowding and poor sanitation.
The hotel has been open since 1999, and its goal has always been to make guests and patrons feel at home. The hotel was brought in 1978, and it was franchised into Friendship Inns. We removed the franchise tag in the late 1980s because the customer flow was great, and there was no need to pay the franchise fee; therefore, we made it into an independent hotel.
