Unity of effort

Unity of effort

Unity of effort is the state of harmonizing efforts among multiple organizations working towards a similar objective. This prevents organizations from working at cross purposes and it reduces duplication of effort. Multiple organizations can achieve unity of effort through shared common objectives. In military operations, unity of effort is similar to unity of command except it usually relates to coordinating organizations not in the same command, such as in interagency operations. In this case, unity of effort is often achieved through campaign plans or coordinating committees instead of through a unified commander.

Power steering

Power steering

Power steering helps drivers steer vehicles by augmenting steering effort of the steering wheel. Hydraulic or electric actuators add controlled energy to the steering mechanism, so the driver needs to provide only modest effort regardless of conditions. Power steering helps considerably when a vehicle is stopped or moving slowly. Also, power steering provides some feedback of forces acting on the front wheels to give an ongoing sense of how the wheels are interacting with the road; this is typically called "rοad feel". Representative power steering systems for cars augment steering effort via an actuator, a hydraulic cylinder, which is part of a servo system. These systems have a direct mechanical connection between the steering wheel and the linkage that steers the wheels. This means that power-steering system failure still permits the vehicle to be steered using manual effort alone. Other power steering systems have no direct mechanical connection to the steering linkage; they require power. Systems of this kind, with no mechanical connection, are sometimes called "drive by wire" or "steer by wire", by analogy with aviation's "fly-by-wire". In this context, "wire" refers to electrical cables that carry power and data, not thin-wire-rope mechanical control cables.

Social loafing

Social loafing

In the social psychology of groups, social loafing is the phenomenon of people deliberately exerting less effort to achieve a goal when they work in a group than when they work alone. This is seen as one of the main reasons groups are sometimes less productive than the combined performance of their members working as individuals, but should be distinguished from the accidental coordination problems that groups sometime experience. Social loafing is also associated with two concepts that are typically used to explain why it occurs: The "free-rider" theory and the resulting "sucker effect", which is an individual’s reduction in effort in order to avoid pulling the weight of a fellow group member. Research on social loafing began with rope pulling experiments by Ringelmann, who found that members of a group tended to exert less effort into pulling a rope than did individuals alone. In more recent research, studies involving modern technology, such as online and distributed groups, has also shown clear evidence of social loafing. Many of the causes of social loafing stem from an individual feeling that his or her effort will not matter to the group.

alexandra park

alexandra park

Overview of Alexandra Park Circa 2014 Alexandra Park aka Alex Park, aka Atkinson Co-op, aka P.O., aka P-Dot The Alexandra Park neighbourhood in Toronto has been the first home for many new Canadians, and has the distinction of being the third oldest housing project in the city (after Regent Park and Lawrence Heights). The area is named for the public 'Alexandra Park' at the south-east corner of Dundas Street West and Bathurst Street which contains the local public Library on the site of Sir Casimir Gzowski 's estate 'The Hall'. The area is named after Queen Alexandra, wife of King Edward VII, who were the first future monarchs to visit Toronto. In the 1920's and 1930's large numbers of Polish and Ukrainian immigrants settled here. They were soon followed by immigrants from Germany, Italy, Greece, Portugal and Hungary. In 1964 Toronto City council approved plans for the Alexandra Park Housing Cooperative and many of the surrounding homes where Polish and Ukrainian families once lived were demolished to make way for the public housing project, which lead to an influx of West Indian/African immigrants along with African Canadian families with roots in Nova Scotia. Alexandra Park is known for having one of the largest African Canadian communities in Toronto, and people of African Canadian ancestry are still evident in this neighbourhood (the Black population is amongst one of the highest in the city, at 23.6%). Residents are within walking distance of Toronto's largest outdoor food market; Kensington Market, which is located west of Spadina and north of Dundas Street. Racial tensions during the late 1970's and early 1980's between new immigrants and established immigrants, along with the emergence of marauding groups of teens from other neighbourhoods, gave birth to a group of African Canadians calling themselves the Project Originals, which later developed into an infamous street gang aligned with the Bloods (The gang also gave Alexandra Park its moniker; The P.O). The introduction of crack cocaine in the 1980's helped bring down the quality of life in the neighbourhood for its residence along with years of neglect to repairs by the TCHC. The rampant drug activity along with frequent street muggings, break-n-enters and hold ups within the community prompted the Alek Park Cooperative to install cameras and hire private security. Although this has simmered down the drug activity around the area, it is still known as a haven for dealers and addicts alike. In 1994, The Alexandra Park Residents’ Association converted the Ontario Housing to Co-op housing and re-named it the Atkinson Co-op, named after the APRA's head; Sonny Atkinson (who died before seeing his dream). Today Alexandra Park is recovering from its harsh battles in the past, and making an effort to turn a new leaf in an effort to stop the oppression and drug wars the project had been facing for many decades previous. As of 2017, the city of Toronto introduced a joint neighborhood revitalization plan for the communities of Regent Park and Alexandra Park in hopes to gentrify the area and allow violence within the areas to disintegrate.
