This investigation adopts the residents' point of view in the assessment of their own quality of life, considering, among other variables, the material, community, emotional and health and safety well-being dimensions, the tourism development stage of the area and the importance of the perceived tourism impacts. This work results from the literature review on quality of life and tourism areas and also from an exploratory study among residents, focusing on an emergent rural tourism area, with five small villages, in the municipality of Loule, located in the Algarve, one of the most internationally well-known Portuguese destinations. Exploratory data were processed through a qualitative approach and the results show that residents have consistently positive attitudes towards tourism and the perceived economical, social cultural and environmental impact influence residents' attitudes towards tourism and tourism development. Additionally residents' perceived well-being and quality of life seems to be mainly determined by factors not related to tourism phenomenon, although we can recognize some influences on the perception of tourism on this evaluation for some residents groups.

|Development of an Instrument to Assess Residents' Equity Perceptions. Who Ought to Get What in the Allocation of Park and Recreation Resources Книга по Требованию Stephanie W. |
The scale proposed in this text to assess residents' perceptions of equity is intended to help government employees and elected officials make appropriate decisions when allocating park and recreation resources. Areas of focus include: extending the original taxonomy of equity models proposed by Crompton and Wicks (1988); development of a theoretical framework for their original model; providing a current synthesis of equity based literature; advancing the Equity Implementation Model (Wicks & Crompton, 1989) by developing an instrument capable of measuring residents' perceptions and preferences of park and recreation resource allocation in their community; empirically confirming the legitimacy of alternate dimensions of equity through SEM; using the instrument to determine the usefulness of selected variables in predicting equity preferences; and comparing data on equity preferences with those of prevailing perceptions to illustrate the utility of the instrument in guiding resource allocation decisions. This work examines equity in the context of the allocation of park and recreation resources within a community.

|Does teaching values improve the quality of education in primary schools?. A study about the impact of values education in a primary school Книга по Требованию Neil H. |
Dr Hawkes can be contacted through www. values-education. com. Dr Neil Hawkes' thesis considers whether values education improves the quality of educational provision. The research study seeks evidence to analyse whether moral education in positive values, in the form of values education, is fundamental to the purposes of developing quality education. Significantly, the study researches whether values education can enable pupils to internalise, and act on, a code of personal ethics. It considers the argument that values education may have positive qualitative effects on the attitudes and behaviour of adults and pupils in state primary schools. It concludes that values education may have a significant impact on the quality of education. Since being awarded his doctorate from Oxford University, Dr Hawkes' conclusions have been fully verified by the extensive research of Lovat et al, from Newcastle University in Australia.
