Abstract: The prefabricated materials used in construction has indeed been hailed amongst the most efficient approaches, there is a difficulty in implementing this process in the construction industry. The article included an outline of the obstacles and factors that influence prefabrication or modular construction in India. The issues of prefabrication and modular construction were investigated through case studies. Prefabricated elements have been demonstrated to be an efficient and efficient approach for improving productivity and the process of construction, as well as assuring the quality of construction & reducing time and cost. However, there are a number of issues with this strategy in practise, including initial high building costs, lack of understanding of the prefabricated method of construction, technical and installation hurdles, and the inability to find prefabrication businesses locally. Because of the nature of the city and also the growing population, the use of such prefabricated materials in the construction of buildings is beneficial. Keywords: Prefabricated construction, Challenges, fabricated elements, Installation hurdles

Shivering from top to bottom, we huddle on the narrow sidewalk outside Participant Inc. gallery on Houston Street in New York City. We are masked. As safely as we can manage from the global flows of COVID-19 (because of the virus, regulations in the city necessitate innovative solutions to the prohibition on crowds congregating inside). We are waiting for the three-part performance by Ron Athey and collaborators Hermes Pittakos, Mecca, and Elliot Reed—Performance in 3 Acts—which is staged in relation to the exhibition I curated Queer Communion: Ron Athey, a retrospective of Athey’s now over thirty year performance art career.

  En el artículo se describen y analizan los resultados de un estudio realizado para investigar la relación entre la práctica físico-deportiva y la calidad de vida percibida (CVP). La muestra del estudio estuvo integrada por un colectivo de ciudadanos (968), pacientes de Atención Primaria, entrevistados mientras se encontraban en las salas de espera, de cuatro Centros de Atención Primaria (CAP) de la ciudad de Terrassa. Los objetivos del estudio fueron: 1) Evaluar la relación entre la percepción de calidad de vida y la actividad físico-deportiva; 2) Verificar si, en tal percepción, hay diferencias significativas entre hombres y mujeres. Las conclusiones fueron las siguientes: Existe una percepción mejor de la calidad de vida entre los usuarios que realizan actividad físico-deportiva que entre los pacientes sedentarios, sea la actividad moderada o intensa. Las mujeres que realizan actividad físico-deportiva mejoran su percepción de Calidad de Vida en mayor grado que los hombres. Las mujeres mejoran su CVP en el ámbito social y los hombres en el ámbito físico, por lo que la práctica deportiva es una fuente de la socialización de las mujeres. Abstract. The article describes and analyzes the results of a study carried out to investigate the relationship between physical-sports practice and perceived quality of life (QOL). The study sample was made up of a group of citizens (968), Primary Care patients, interviewed while they were in the waiting rooms of four Primary Care Centers (CAP) in the city of Terrassa. The objectives of the study were: 1) To evaluate the relationship between the perception of quality of life and physical-sports activity; 2) Verify if, in such perception, there are significant differences between men and women. The conclusions were as follows: There is a better perception of the quality of life among users who perform physical-sports activity than among sedentary patients, be it moderate or intense activity. Women who perform physical-sports activity improve their perception of Quality of Life to a greater degree than men. Women improve their CVP in the social sphere and men in the physical sphere, so sports practice is a source of women's socialization.

Since the nineties, cultural tourism is considered as a form of tourism that is carried out by groups of people or institutions, whose main motive is the fulfillment of an interest and knowledge more on the culture, the history and the heritage of the chosen destination. The city of Constantine, located in northeastern Algeria, is one of the oldest cities in the Mediterranean basin. It was elected "Capital of Arab Culture 2015" due to its history, cultural and architectural heritage. The aim of this study is to examine the influences of cultural tourism on local development, to highlight the perception of local actors' roles in the development of tourism and to determine their involvement in the preservation of Constantine's cultural heritage to achieve a development model of cultural tourism in Constantine. This study is based on a literature review and field surveys, the type of questionnaire includes different types of questions: open questions, Likert scale questions and multiple choice qualitative questions. A manual processing of the data was performed using the mean and standard deviation calculation. The results of this study reveal a misunderstanding of cultural tourism among local residents hence the need to develop a model of categorization of the objectives of the study (SPIP) which proposes four key principles for the development of local cultural tourism in the city of Constantine. However, unless the proposed model elements are incorporated, cultural tourism in this city would never emerge.

The Margins of Late Medieval London is a powerful study of medieval London’s urban fringe. Seeking to unpack the complexity of urban life in the medieval age, this volume offers a detailed and novel approach to understanding London beyond its institutional structures. Using a combination of experimental digital, quantitative and qualitative methodologies, the volume casts new light on urban life at the level of the neighbourhood and considers the differences in economy, society and sociability which existed in different areas of a vibrant premodern city. It focuses on the dynamism and mobility that shaped city life, integrating the experiences of London’s poor and migrant communities and how they found their place within urban life. It describes how people found themselves marginalized in the city, and the strategies they would employ to mitigate that precarious position.

Gender violence is a global social problem. Although in Ecuador there have been achievements in recent decades, this phenomenon persists and tends to increase. This contrasts with the progressive approval of regulations aimed at ending this social problem and responding to the victims. It is relevant, therefore, to analyze the implementation of public policies, in the specific case of the city of Guayaquil, through the documentary review of the investigative, normative and strategic background, as a part of the objectives of a doctoral thesis that is on investigative process1. For this, the data that indicate the problem magnitude were interpreted and the behavior of the elements that influence its solution was studied. The results showed deficiencies and non-compliance with the legislation and lack of attention to the problem by the responsible institutions. As a conclusion, the need for the conscious application of the provisions, the operation of the System and its instruments, the allocation of the necessary budget and above all, increase the prevention work and the initiative to adopt practical solutions at the level of the autonomous government of the territory.
