Phoenix et ses environs


Chapitre Phoenix et ses environs, Guide Ulysse sur Phoenix et environs avec les attraits touristiques, un carnet d'adresses pour l'hébergement, la restauration, des informations de plein air.
Ce chapitre sur Phoenix et ses environs est extrait du guide Ulysse Arizona.
Capitale de l'Arizona, Phoenix est assez représentatif du sud-ouest des États-Unis et, grâce à son ensoleillement quasi perpétuel, porte bien son surnom de capitale de la Valley of the Sun. Dans cette oasis du désert de Sonora, il n'y a pas un recoin où ne germe pas la verdure, et les levers de soleil rougeoyants rendent quotidiennement hommage au nom de cette vallée. La confluence du désert et de l'urbanité forme un paradis pour les résidants, qui devient aussi un havre de repos durant l'hiver pour nombre de visiteurs. Le désert, avec ses splendides points de vue sur les buttes ocre et la végétation verdoyante au loin, le tout encadré de ciel azur et de montagnes aux sommets enneigés, constitue une attraction en soi.
Ces dernières années, le centre-ville de Phoenix s'est embourgeoisé à la suite de l'injection de plusieurs millions dans des projets qui ont insufflé une nouvelle vie au noyau urbain. Le centre-ville de Phoenix s'est ainsi rapidement transformé en une destination à la mode grâce Bank One Ballpark –refuge de l'équipe de baseball des Arizona Diamondbacks, de l'Herberger Theater Center qui présente des spectacles de Broadway, et enfin l'Arizona Center qui s'étend sur huit quadrilatères et comprend 24 salles de cinéma et une soixantaine de restaurants.
Ce chapitre vous propose de découvrir Phoenix et ses environs à l'aide de renseignements sur les attraits touristiques, un système d'étoile pour vous signaler l'intérêts des sites à visiter, un carnet d'adresses pour l'hébergement et la restauration, des informations sur les activités de plein air, des idées de sortie et des détails sur les festivités et festivals organisés tout au long de l'année.

Ouvrage Collectif
Psoriasis is a condition that is suffered by many millions of people all over the world, with various developed countries reporting incidence rates that are remarkably similar.
For instance, in the USA, the reported rate of severe psoriasis is somewhere between 2% and 3% of the population, whilst in Australia, the condition affects around 2% of the population as well.
Furthermore, it is suggested in some quarters that up to 20% of the population of the USA may have some form of psoriasis ranging from the very mild to severe, and that perhaps as many as 4.5 million people could be serious psoriasis sufferers.
On top of this, it is reported that there are 150,000 new cases of psoriasis reported every year in the USA alone, so if it is assumed that psoriasis is as prevalent in other countries as it is in the States, it clearly represents a significant problem on a global scale.
For psoriasis sufferers, there is something of a ‘good news, bad news’ paradox with which most of these people have undoubtedly already learned to live.
The good news is that, on the one hand, psoriasis is not a condition that is life threatening (although it has been suggested that the condition increases the risk of heart attack). Balanced against this however is the fact that psoriasis can bring a great deal of misery to both sufferers and their families, so it is not a condition that can be ignored.
Furthermore, because it can develop into something far more unpleasant and painful, psoriasis is a condition that sufferers have to treat.
As with any medical condition or complaint, there are many different ways of treating or dealing with psoriasis, some of which are dependent on pharmaceutical drugs whilst others are completely natural. And of course, it almost always follows that treating any medical condition naturally is the best way of doing things if such treatments are going to be appropriate and effective.
The purpose of this book is to examine what psoriasis is and what causes it in greater detail, before looking at the various different ways of treating the condition.
Armed with this information, you should be in a position to consider and decide whether using pharmaceutical drugs is a good idea for treating your own psoriasis condition or whether using 100% natural methods of treating your condition is a better idea.

The media play a crucial role in the protection of human rights. They
expose human rights violations and offer an arena for different voices
to be heard in public discourse. Free, independent and pluralistic media
are a core element of any democracy. However, the power of the media
can also be misused to the extent that the very functioning of democracy
is threatened. Some media outlets have been turned into propaganda
megaphones for those in power. Others have been used to incite
xenophobic hatred and violence against minorities and other vulnerable
groups.Now the phenomenon of social media presents us with a range of
fresh challenges. Blogs, video and social networking sites have become a
key forum for political debate and organisation - so much so that they
have provoked counter-responses from some repressive states. While there
is a need to ensure better protection of personal integrity in social
media, the right to freedom of expression must not be undermined.The
purpose of this publication is to contribute to a more thorough
discussion on media developments and their impact on human rights in a
constantly changing media landscape. Eight experts were invited to
contribute their personal assessments of trends and problems. They have
not shied away from addressing controversial issues or providing
far-reaching suggestions. Together their texts indicate that there is a
need for stronger protection of media freedom and freedom of expression
in Europe today. These are clearly topics of paramount importance which
demand serious public debate.
