Pan European Transport Corridors
Overview
The Pan-European Transport Corridors represent the ten key multimodal transport links of the Central and Eastern European transport infrastructure development program of the European Commission, ECMT and UNECE in 1994 (source: United Nations, 2009). The nine corridors consist of a set of eight rail and road links with a total length of 18,000 kilometers and one an inland waterway link, the river Danube.
Corridors I-X
The list of ten Pan European Transport Networks (See Map 3);
• Corridor I, from Helsinki to Warsaw (first branch) and Gdansk (second branch) connecting Riga.
• Corridor II, from Berlin to Moscow connecting Poznan, Warsaw, Brest, Minsk and Smolensk.
• Corridor III, from Kiev to Brussels connecting Aachen, Cologne, Dresden, Wrocław, Katowice, Krakow and Lviv.
• Corridor IV, from Dresden to Istanbul connecting Prague, Vienna, Budapest Craiova, Sofia, Thessaloniki, Plovdiv and Istanbul.

Pan American: the History of America's ”Chosen Instrument” for Overseas Air Transport

...Pan American: The History of America's ”Chosen Instrument” for Overseas Air Transport In the history of American commercial aviation, there is no airline more influential, important, and better known than Pan American Airways. It was not the first American passenger airline, nor did it ever meet with much success in the domestic market, but Pan Am (as it was more commonly known), represented a new adventurous image of the United States to the world. When filmmaker Stanley Kubrick produced his landmark vision of the future in the 1968 movie “2001: A Space Odyssey,” he envisioned Pan Am as the space carrier that would take men and women regularly into space. Pan Am's history is inseparable from the life and career of Juan Trippe, the company's founder and guiding visionary for five decades. Trippe, a former navy pilot, had shown early interest in passenger aviation with an aborted attempt to start a charter service for wealthy socialites in New England in the early 1920s. Within a few years, Trippe's primary focus, like many other entrepreneurs, shifted to the Caribbean and Latin America. With the help of financiers such as Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney and William A. Rockefeller, Trippe formed the Aviation Corporation of America on June 2, 1927, to offer air services into the Caribbean. Trippe had competition from two other companies. One, the Atlantic, Gulf, and Caribbean Airways, formed on October 11, 1927, was headed by Richard Hoyt, a New York broker. The second......

Transport

...Transport or transportation is the movement of people, animals and goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, rail, road, water, cable, pipeline, and space. The field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles, and operations. Transport is important since it enables trade between peoples, which in turn establishes civilizations. Transport infrastructure consists of the fixed installations necessary for transport, and may be roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals and pipelines, and terminals such as airports, railway stations, bus stations, warehouses, trucking terminals, refueling depots (including fueling docks and fuel stations), and seaports. Terminals may be used both for interchange of passengers and cargo and for maintenance. Vehicles traveling on these networks may include automobiles, bicycles, buses, trains, trucks, people, helicopters, and aircraft. Operations deal with the way the vehicles are operated, and the procedures set for this purpose including financing, legalities and policies. In the transport industry, operations and ownership of infrastructure can be either public or private, depending on the country and mode. Passenger transport may be public, where operators provide scheduled services, or private. Freight transport has become focused on containerization, although bulk transport is used for large volumes of durable items. Transport plays an important part in economic growth and globalization, but most types cause air...

Pan Africanism

...LaReco Harrison Urban Politics Pan-Africianism Pan-Africanism is movement, founded around 1900, to secure equal rights, self government, independence, and unity for African peoples. Inspired by Marcus Garvey, it encouraged self awareness on the part of Africans by encouraging the study of their history and culture.Pan-Africanism represents the complexities of black political and intellectual thought over two hundred years. What constitutes Pan-Africanism, is what one might include in a Pan-African movement often changes according to whether the focus is on politics, ideology, organizations, or culture. Pan-Africanism actually reflects a range of political views. At a basic level it is a belief that African peoples, both on the African continent and in the Diaspora, share not merely a common history, but a common destiny. This sense of connected pasts and futures has taken many forms, especially in the creation of political institutions. In 1900, Henry Sylvester Williams called a conference that took place in Westminster Hall, London to protest stealing of lands in the colonies, racial discrimination and deal with other issues of interest to blacks. This conference drafted a letter to the Queen of England and other European rulers appealing to them to fight racism and grant independence to their colonies. It was the African American scholar and writer, Dr W.E.B. Du Bois who convened the first Pan-African Congress in 1919, in Paris, France.Again it demanded......

...IS 7060: PROJECT MANAGEMENT Assignment 2 Pan-Europa Case Bharath Sivaraman Noel Anson Rohit Sivadas Sriram Ravisankar Considering the market foothold of PanEuropa Foods, a multinational producer of high-quality ice cream, yogurt, bottled water, and fruit juices, compelling projects had to be chosen from a range of project proposals to help the firm reach its capital budget for the new year. The budget available for investing was limited to ECU80 million but the 11 major projects up for consideration totaled over (European Currency Unit) ECU208 million. Out of the 11 proposals, we decided to go consider only 10, excluding the Effluent Treatment Program, an environmentally oriented project with no returns and addition to the existing plant. But, if the budget permits, after considering the other projects, we could include it later after weighing its merits. Firstly, we identified some projects, which strategically seem like a good fit for the company’s goals: a. Market expansion towards eastward Sales b. Strategic acquisition Strategic Planning c. Inventory control Distribution d. Snack foods Marketing e. Artificial sweetener Marketing f. Automation and conveyor system Production The idea behind the selection of these projects was the diversity of the fields they cover. For example, even if the distribution does not produce the desired results, the sales and marketing might still improve and compensate. Market expansion towards eastward- The eastern market has a great......

Pan-Europa

...Strategically, what must Pan-Europa do to keep from becoming the victim of a hostile takeover? What rows/categories in Exhibit 2 will become critically important in 1993? What should Pan-Europa do now that they have won the price war? Who should lead the way for Pan-Europa? Pan-Europa’s ball and chain is its debt. With a debt-to-equity ratio of 125%, the company is leveraged more than its competitors. Pan-Europa’s bankers have become unwilling to provide additional credit, which is unfavorable if conditions call for the purchase of a large block of common stock to prevent a hostile takeover. As a preventative measure, Pan-Europa must bolster shareholder confidence by continuing to pay the dividend and driving up earnings, which should drive stock price up. Showing annual revenue growth through wise capital investment is crucial in 1993. Exhibit 2 below shows the company’s flat trend in gross sales, declining net income and earnings per share. Clearly these are signs of an overleveraged organization. Investment firms are already recommending selling Pan-Europa stock, driving the market price down.

Pan Africanism

...Pan Africanism The ideology and movement that aims to unify and uplift people of African descent, is also known as Pan Africanism. It encourages the solidarity of Africans worldwide, focusing on the belief that unity is vital to nationalism, independence, the political and economic cooperation, and historical and cultural awareness within Africans. Pan Africanism sought to eliminate the philosophy of that in which slavery and colonialism encouraged negative, unfounded categorizations of the race, culture, and values of the African people. Pan- Africanist ideals began in the 19th century in response to European colonization and exploitation of the African continent. Martin Delany, Edward Blyden and Alexander Crummell were early Pan African members. They believed that black people could not develop alongside whites and therefore advocated the creation of a black nation, suggesting that Africa was the best place to stay. Henry Sylvester-Williams, in 1897 formed the African Association in London, England to encourage Pan-African unity in British colonies. He organized the first Pan-African meeting in collaboration with several black leaders representing various countries of the African Diaspora. This conference introduced W.E.B. Du Bois, who is known as the father of modern Pan- Africanism, working to create a unified African nation where all Africans scattered from their ancestral home to different parts of the world, the Diaspora, can live. It was him who gave the......

Rapid population growth, poverty and income disparities, overcrowded urban cores, poorly designed road networks, spatial mismatches between housing and jobs, deteriorating environmental conditions, and economic losses from extreme traffic by congestion are among the more vexing challenges faced by developing cities that could be assuaged through improved coordination of transportation and urban development. is is underscored by examples reviewed in this paper from South Asia, Southeast Asia, China, India, Africa, and South America. It is concluded that whatever is done to improve transportation and land-use integration must be pro-poor. e cardinal features of integrated and sustainable transport and urbanism everywhere—accessible urban activities and safe, attractive walking and cycling environs—are particularly vital to the welfare and prosperity of urbanites in the world’s poorest countries.

Pan- Europa Foods

... 17 1. Executive Summary This report provides an analysis on the company Pan Europa Foods and gives insight into the strategies and projects that the company should complete to get out of the current situation it faces. Pan Europa Foods is facing financial trouble because a long use of debt financing, product issues when faced with outdated production lines and factories as well as failed new products. Their business environment isn’t helping either with sales becoming saturated and population growth slowing down. When looking at alternatives Pan Europa Foods uses two financial tests IRR and payback period to decide on projects. The company is also unsure about high risk projects and usually turns them down. When looking at the 11 proposals only 6 pass the initial financial tests that deem them acceptable. The accepted proposals are an eastward and southward expansion, new snack foods product line, new inventory control system, strategic acquisition of another company and water treatment upgrade a 4 plants. During the recommending stage, the strategic acquisition of another company proposal was dropped due to high cost and high risk. This allows the other 5 to all be implemented. The eastward and southward expansions are risky especially doing them at the same time however Pan Europa Foods needs to expand to get out of saturated and into new markets. The company also need to keep things fresh with new......

Corridor of Uncertainity

...Corridor of Uncertainty The article is compared to the corridor of uncertainty which in the context of cricket is a difficult to play when ball pitches in that corridor. It is in other words a dilemma as to what to do. Mr. Haldane speaks about how the UK had dealt with the recession crisis from 2007 and prevented it from getting worse. The actions taken had prevented a 6% of GDP blow to England. The dilemma which is discussed is as to whether to wait till the sources of uncertainty is over or to take appropriate measures before it is too late. When UK was in deep recession, the Bank of England made a bold move of Quantitative easing which includes purchase of assets worth £ 375 Billion so that there is an increased money supply in the market. This monetary policy along with a cut in interest rates adopted by the UK government was highly effective in pulling out UK from a depression which would have otherwise happened. The GDP growth rate was pegged at 3% in 2013 which was the highest among G7 countries. Also, inflation seemed to drop to a healthy 1.5% and unemployment was at the minimum. However, problems keep arising and there are more uncertainties that loom large. The fact that the productivity if labor has fallen down over the years has been a great cause of concern. The other uncertainty is that to bring the interest rate back to normal which will affect half a million households. Also, the GDP is expected to grow at 1.4% to 5.4 %. Anything below 3% would be......

Pan Slavism Dbq

...early nineteenth century, a movement called Pan-Slavism emerged, which was a movement pushing for just that. In 1848, the movement began to become mainstream and soon became a dominant movement. Many were opposed to Pan-Slavism, however, thus a debate arose which raised political and cultural issues. Those involved in this debate can be placed into four distinct groups: supporters of Pan-Slavic ideals, (Docs 3, 8) those against Pan-Slavism for Nationalist reasons, (Docs 4, 7, 9, 11) Supporters of Pan-Slavism for Imperial reasons, (Docs 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 13) and those against Pan-Slavism for Empirical reasons. (Docs 11, 14) A discernable change over time is that as time progressed people became more sympathetic to the Slavic people and support for Pan-Slavism increased. Those who identified themselves as Slavs in addition to those who felt that the Slavic people were being oppressed were supporters of Pan-Slavic ideals. (Docs 3, 8) Bronislaw Trentowski, a Polish philosopher, says in a lecture that if he were czar, he would create a Slavic empire and destroy the Ottoman and Austrian empires. (Doc 8) Jan Kollar, a Slovak poet and early advocate of Pan-Slavism, preaches that all Slavs should unite as one nation because that is their true identity. (Doc 3) This opinion is due to a personal bias as he identifies himself as a Slav, therefore he would naturally want a Slavic nation of people who shared his beliefs. However, those against Pan-Slavism for Nationalist reasons (Docs......

Transport

...Transport is considered in Agenda 21 in the context of several chapters, including, among others, Chapter 9 on Atmosphere and Chapter 7 on Human Settlements. In undertaking the five-year review of the implementation of Agenda 21 during its nineteenth Special Session in 1997, the General Assembly noted that, over the next twenty years, transportation is expected to be the major driving force behind a growing world demand for energy. It is the largest end-use of energy in developed countries and the fastest growing one in most developing countries. Furthermore, adequate, efficient, and effective transport systems are important for access to markets, employment, education and basic services critical to poverty alleviation. Current patterns of transportation development are not sustainable and may compound both environmental and health problems. There is, therefore, a need for urgent action, ranging, inter alia, from the promotion of integrated transport policies and plans, the accelerated phase-out of leaded gasoline, the promotion of voluntary guidelines and the development of partnerships at the national level for strengthening transport infrastructure, promoting and supporting the use of non-motorised transport and developing innovative mass transit schemes. Within the framework of the Commission’s multi-year programme of work, transport was discussed by the Commission at its ninth session in 2001. Countries agreed that international co-operation is required in order to...
