High-resolution satellite imagery data unveiled a global correlation between urban green space and happiness in 60 countries.
This model addresses the fact that most traditional climate models effectively ignore cities entirely, causing them to underestimate the frequency and severity of urban heat waves. Urban areas make up only 2-3% of the earth's land, so their effect on global models is negligible, but more than half of the world's population lives in urban areas, so their impact is significant.
A child's enjoyment of school at six years old is linked to their GCSE results aged 16, according to new research from the University of Bristol, published in the journal Science of Learning.
By 2050, more than 70% of the world's population will live in cities. Stanford Natural Capital Project researchers have developed software that shows city planners where to invest in nature to improve people's lives and save billions of dollars.
Workers in the service industry are often pressured by their employers to give friendly "service with a smile." New Penn State research suggests that when those employees also rely on tips to earn a living, it creates a power dynamic between the employee and customer that may increase the likelihood of sexual harassment on the job.
To boost employees' creativity, managers should consider offering a set of rewards for them to choose from, according to a new study by management experts at Rice University, Tulane University, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and National Taiwan Normal University.
For "deep" products, properly managing customers' onboarding experience and using the right channel and right product promotional strategy can enhance long-term customer loyalty and increase sales and profitability.
MIAMI--In a new analysis on managed retreat--the climate adaptation response of moving people and property out of harm's way--researchers explore what it would take for managed retreat to be supportive of people and their priorities. A key starting point is considering retreat alongside other responses like coastal armoring and not just as an option of last resort.
Modelling the financial system as a network is a precondition to understanding and managing the containment of financial crises and the transition to a low-carbon economy. Financial Networks is the scientific discipline that deals with these issues. An article published in the scientific journal Nature Review Physics carries out the first comprehensive review of this field.
Current approaches for planning relocation for potentially millions of people affected by climate change are 'woefully inadequate' and risk worsening societal inequities, experts wrote in a policy perspective on June 17 in Science. Policymakers and scientists need to rethink how they work together to develop, communicate and carry out relocation plans so that relocating communities can thrive, though it relies on a transformation in how science is used, tools are deployed, and stakeholders are engaged.
