Housing shortages are affecting many cities around the world and Canada is not impervious to the continually growing population’s demand for adequate homes. Iqaluit, Nunavut is yet another city ailed by housing scarcity due to the limited availability of local resources, lack of specialized trades’ people and the harsh local climate that deteriorates most structures. This thesis will delve into the underlying factors currently propagating the continuing housing scarcity and decay in Iqaluit, Nunavut and will seek a new housing type to better accommodate the local population. At present existing western housing developments do not address nor reflect the rich and varied cultural background of locals which restricts traditional way of life. Key factors that help define the objectives and design parameters have been derived from background research into the socio-cultural, climate and current labour and resource realities of the region. The Northern Housing Project with the help of western co-housing concepts will address the needs of the local indigenous inhabitants as well as the requirements of the immigrating population.

In the context of increasing colonial exploitation policy of the colonial regime, following the period of struggling against the French imperialist aggression by the gathering of resistance centers across the country, some localities also rose up, including the rebellion led by Vo Tru and Tran Cao Van in Phu Yen. Due to the scarce local resources, moreover, it is heavily influenced by popular perceptions of folklore, the research topics so far about this event have been mostly inaccurate, arbitrarily inferred or copied, stereotyped; for example, the flag named ``Minh Trai Chu Te'', the fusion of religions or even of the idealization of Buddhism, the forces involved, the status of the leaders, etc. Based on the newly updated data source, this article conducts criticism of documents so far; at the same time, it provides reasonable explanations with the establishment of some new perceptions of the issue: Vo Tru was not from the circle of Buddhist monks, nor he and most of the party members were ``bandits of Buddhism''; Tu Quang/Da Trang Pagoda was not the headquarters or a main base for gathering forces of the insurgency; Vo Tru and Tran Cao Van were the two enthusiastic Confuciannist leaders who campaigned against the French colonialists. Since then, the uprising bearing the names of these two leaders was a continuation of the Can Vuong movement in Phu Yen and in the whole country in general. This is also a practical historical activity contributing to the restoration of this important event in a closer approach to the authenticity of history.

A recently proposed protocol for two parties to securely and simultaneouslyexchange inequivalent quantum states under the same control of a third party[\textit{Int. J. Theor. Phys.} (2020);https://doi.org/10.1007/s10773-020-04657-0] is revisited. It is shown inthis paper that the required tasks are equally well accomplished with anonlocal resource which is greatly economized by rationally exploiting localresources. Furthermore, the economized nonlocal resource with appropriatelocal operations on local resources also allows exchanging inequivalentstates other than those previously considered.

Life that comes from food must inevitably be fulfilled, the involvement of the local economy will inevitably bring serious challenges. So it is reasonable to say that globalization will bring benefits if the response of national and local governments can properly mobilize local resources. The resources that are owned in relation to farming groups cannot be separated from the role of local governments in efforts to improve a decent life for farmers and the farming groups themselves. The research was carried out at the Food Crops, Horticulture and Plantation Service of Sorong Regency against the Farmers Group in Salawati District from June to September 2020. This research used descriptive methods by survey and cross sectional methods which used samples from the Department of Agriculture and farming groups in the District. Salawati. The analysis used is a Likert scale and a frequency table. Based on the results of the analysis, the role of the Agricultural Instructor as Motivator, Facilitator, Communicator and Innovator is in the very good category, while the participation of farmers in the role of the Dinas is in the Good category. Thus the suggestion that is conveyed is the active role of every institution involved both as extension workers and farmers who are pro-active in carrying out their duties and responsibilities. This score or number will be at 100 percent if all parties can carry out the function properly.

Ethnic towns in China are always special and important. Their rich natural and cultural resources and relatively poor conditions make their development different. This research constructs an integrated development model of town-industry-education (TIE) for ethnic towns in China. The case of Pengshui is presented to illustrate the details of this model. Chiyou Jiuli town, ethnic tourism industry, and Chongqing Vocational Institute of Tourism formed an integration of TIE in their development. Some closely related elements form the basis of their integration and some similar driving forces motivate the formation of their integration. Through the operating platform of Jiuli Ordered Class, their integration could benefit all the participants and contribute to local economic and social development. This model helps to make use of local resources and improve local development levels. Considering the rapid development of society, further studies are needed to apply this model to more regions and include various institutions.

This study analyses the information and tools for citizen participation on the institutional websites of local bodies to improve participation in the management of local resources in a context following the introduction of Spain’s Transparency Law. The method is based on applying 14 indicators to analyse the institutional websites of 605 municipalities that have over 10,000 residents, located in 9 autonomous communities of the Spanish state. The main results show how the institutional information offered on the websites of the councils analysed does not follow journalistic criteria in terms of accountability, meaning that citizens’ decisions regarding their local governments cannot be based on precise, reliable information. In this regard, in this study we have confirmed that council websites publish very little information on the activity of the opposition or on the plenary sessions, debates and agreements, but do publish information on the activity of the government. Furthermore, they do not make use of web resources for citizen participation, which impedes the transparent, collaborative management of political processes between leaders and citizens. Nonetheless, the results show how political and technical managers are not averse to change if they have access to guidance and incentives to improve the management of information and participation on municipal websites.

The cruise line industry (CLI) provides an opportunity to rapidly improve national (and regional) economies in destinations. However, lack of planning and proper preparation by destination authorities and the cruise industry can have significant impacts on the local community, commerce, and environment. This paper identifies and quantifies near-shore challenges between the national authorities and the CLI that include port facility preparedness and the potential stresses on local infrastructure. These key parameters used to quantify the impact of the CLI on established destinations can potentially become part of the analysis, negotiation, and communication between all parties involved (government, business, and tourists) as part of the contribution to ensure sustainable CLI destinations. The Port of Havana, Cuba was selected as the study site and was compared against similar cruise line destinations around the Meso-American region (Philipsburg, Sint Maarten, Belize City, Belize, and Progreso, Mexico). The Port of Havana’s natural infrastructure and the carriage available for the incoming ship (i.e., nautical charting) appear to be adequate for welcoming increased cruise ship traffic. The main concerns are the potential toll on local resources including the impact on port traffic and the local infrastructure required to support tourists once they depart the ship.
