Evaluating Obesity Prevention Efforts

Author: Committee on Evaluating Progress of Obesity Prevention Effort
Publisher: National Academies Press
ISBN: 9780309285278
Release Date: 2013-12-11
Genre: Medical

Obesity poses one of the greatest public health challenges of the 21st century, creating serious health, economic, and social consequences for individuals and society. Despite acceleration in efforts to characterize, comprehend, and act on this problem, including implementation of preventive interventions, further understanding is needed on the progress and effectiveness of these interventions. Evaluating Obesity Prevention Efforts develops a concise and actionable plan for measuring the nation's progress in obesity prevention efforts--specifically, the success of policy and environmental strategies recommended in the 2012 IOM report Accelerating Progress in Obesity Prevention: Solving the Weight of the Nation. This book offers a framework that will provide guidance for systematic and routine planning, implementation, and evaluation of the advancement of obesity prevention efforts. This framework is for specific use with the goals and strategies from the 2012 report and can be used to assess the progress made in every community and throughout the country, with the ultimate goal of reducing the obesity epidemic. It offers potentially valuable guidance in improving the quality and effect of the actions being implemented. The recommendations of Evaluating Obesity Prevention Efforts focus on efforts to increase the likelihood that actions taken to prevent obesity will be evaluated, that their progress in accelerating the prevention of obesity will be monitored, and that the most promising practices will be widely disseminated.

Art Beyond Representation

Author: Barbara Bolt
Publisher: I.B.Tauris
ISBN: 9780857731791
Release Date: 2010-10-07
Genre: Art

Refuting the assumption that art is a representational practice, Bolt’s striking argument engages with the work of Heidegger, Deleuze and Guattari, C.S.Peirce and Judith Butler to argue for a performative relationship between art and artist. Drawing on themes as diverse as the work of Cézanne and of Francis Bacon, the transubstantiation of the Catholic sacrament and Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, she challenges the metaphor of light as enlightenment, reconceiving this ‘revealing’ light as the blinding ‘glare’ of the Australian sun, and suggests that too much ‘light’ may in fact reveal nothing. This stimulating book questions many of the fundamental assumptions ingrained in us about the nature of art.
