...for Priority Setting in Health and Social Care This article explores different perspectives to aid resource allocation and decision-making in local U.K. health and social care organizations in the context of limited resources, and what these perspectives may suggest about a robust process for priority setting. Having a priority-setting process is vital, as scarcity of resources in health and social care is inescapable. Healthcare systems, regardless of how they are organized, must decide what services to provide given the resources available. This is...

... phenomenon of the 1760s and after, and took advantage of the fashion for setting works in Scottish and Irish wilds. National tales written by Owenson and by Jane and Anna Porter elaborated enduring fables of a people's past, and proffered reconciliation tinged with Romantic regret which served distinct political purposes in an attempt to integrate these lands into a new British identity. Gerald *Griffin and William *Carleton offered much grittier, more realistic and socially engaged evocations of Catholic peasant life in Ireland. One of the greatest...

For a long time, Muslims neglected all this, but once God had enlightened their thinkers and they had compared the social rules of their religion with what they had been told by the greatest sociologists and the cleverest leading theorists, they noted the wide gap and the great distance between a heritage of immense value on...

...in the so-called Holiness Code of Lev 17–26 ( Hodgson 1982 ), as lying behind some of what Paul says in 1 Thess 4:1–12 , the usefulness of a social-identity approach to the material would persist. Throughout Israelite history norms, derived from the law and its interpretation, served to differentiate Israel from other groups ( Esler 1998 : 82–6 ) and Paul's reappropriation of some of those norms within a setting of the novel intergroup differentiation inaugurated with the establishment of congregations of Christ-followers is unsurprising.

...with other texts of around 480 bce . All of these claims can be—and have been—contested. In any case, so little is known about the history of Hebrew language and society in the Persian period that any date down to 350 bce is possible. There is also uncertainty about the social setting of the book, with plausible suggestions as widely opposed as seeing Malachi as a priest or as an eschatological prophet addressing the aspirations of an oppressed underclass. A radical view, expressed by Utzschneider ( 1992 ), is that Malachi is Schriftprophetie , that is,...

...to say has been properly understood. (The TLS correspondence page serves the same function!) Giddens defines as ‘talk’ the activity that links culture and communication via agents and their social setting, and then makes the important observation that ‘talk’ is situated in space but not in time. A conversation, for example, takes place in a particular social space occupied by two or more people, and depends upon a whole range of non-linguistic factors. To give an example of my own, the word ‘round’ spoken in a pub has different implications from when it...

...the focus of national concern about crime, riots, and social disorder, on account both of its vast size and of its opportunities for illegality. Cobbett was only trading on a well-established image in his famous description of London as the ‘Great Wen’; literally, a great cyst. Even with the huge increase in the size of the provincial manufacturing and commercial cities, London remained the giant metropolis, almost too vast to comprehend, and the setting still (as in so much of Dickens) of novels of social concern. Indeed, London's dominant role in the...

...writing which paints portraits of individuals and family groups in a social setting enlists women's enthusiasm more readily than compiling pedigrees : see, for example, the Darwin family depicted in Gwen Raverat , Period Piece: A Cambridge Childhood ( 1960 ).

Thirdly, this appropriation of the Bible generates a ‘fidelity’ in its application, as they attempt to live in a manner consistent with the meaning they glean for their own lives.

Although there is no one single paradigm to describe modern Korean immigration patterns, most present-day immigrants seem to favor urban settings over rural ones. Many large population centers in the US and Canada have “Korea towns” with Korean grocery stores, banks, and churches. In some places, recent immigrants have not even found it necessary to learn English. Within a generation or two of having immigrated to North...

Implicated in this elaboration of domesticity as a moral and social ideal, and a corollary of burgeoning capitalism, was a new emphasis in the period upon the site of the home. The aristocratic conception of domesticity was associated with the estate as the ‘family seat’, and offered its self- representation through the contemporary aristocratic genre of the *conversation piece . This usually used an outdoor setting for its celebration of the aristocratic family, so as to take in the estate as both home and grounds....

These anxieties were not groundless, nor should we dismiss the loyalists' campaign as mere rhetoric. Many experienced the spread of popular radical literature as deeply threatening, and feared that social equality was firmly on the agenda for many radical sympathizers. Indeed, for those who did not read too carefully, Paine was himself advocating this. In the second part of...
