The aim of the study is to explore the landscape architecture career of H. Rowland Jackson, a prominent landscape architect practicing in North Texas, to better understand his professional experiences and achievements. This research presents Jackson's significant contributions to society as a landscape architect. Jackson has been practicing landscape architecture for more than forty years. During this period, the shape and scope of the landscape architecture profession have continuously changed and improved, and Jackson has not only witnessed but also played a role in these eventful changes. The primary goal of this research is to capture these events and experiences using the oral history methodology so that young professionals can learn from Jackson's experiences and achievements. One on one interview with Jackson is the main mode of data collection for this oral history qualitative research. Additional interviews with people familiar with his professional career and the documents from Jackson's Council of Fellows nomination to the American Society of Landscape Architecture (ASLA) are used to support the findings. Findings reveal that Jackson has considerable influence on the profession of landscape architecture. This study enriches the body of Landscape Architecture history through developing knowledge of landscape architecture in the North Texas region. The conclusion analyzes the summary of the findings that have been developed through this study, acknowledges the limitations of the current study, and presents future research questions.

In this paradigm-shattering book, leading behavioural economist and food psychologist Brian Wansink - dubbed the 'Sherlock Holmes of food' and the 'wizard of why' - offers a radical new philosophy for weight loss. The answer isn't to tell people what to do: it's to set up their living environments so that they will naturally lose weight. Using cutting-edge, never-before-seen research from his acclaimed Food and Brand Lab at Cornell University, Wansink reveals how innovative and inexpensive design changes - from home kitchens to restaurants, from grocery stores to schools and workplaces - can make it mindlessly easy for people to eat healthier and make it more profitable for the companies who sell the food.

In Slim by Design, Wansink argues that the easiest, quickest and most natural way to reverse weight gain is to work with human nature, not against it. He demonstrates how schools can nudge kids to take an apple instead of a cookie, how restaurants can increase profits by selling half-size portions, how supermarkets can double the amount of fruits and vegetables they sell, and how anyone can cut plate refills at home by more than a third. Interweaving drawings, charts, floor plans and scorecards with new scientific studies and compelling insights that will make you view your surroundings in an entirely fresh way, this entertaining, eye-opening book offers practical solutions for changing your everyday environment to make you, your family and even your community slim by design.

The majority of companies, their employees and their leaders navigate a space where competitors appear overnight, customers demand innovations monthly, business plans rarely last a full year and career ladders have been replaced by trampolines. This environment of constant change will only accelerate in the future and traditional business leaders are ill equipped to deal with it. Just as we took our cues from MBAs and the military in casting the ideal CEO of the 20th century, we can look to design - in its broadest form - to model our future leader, the DEO. These leaders possess characteristics, behaviors and mindsets that allow them to excel in unpredictable, fast-moving and value-charged conditions. They are catalysts for transformation and agents of change. A hybrid of strategic business executive and creative problem-solver, the DEO is willing to take on anything as an object of design and looks at ALL problems as design challenges. Readers will learn not only why this form of leadership is essential to the success of modern organizations, but also what characteristics are best suited to this role. Through intimate conversations with leading DEOs, we explore the mindsets, communities, processes and practices common to creative business leaders. The book lays out—graphically and through example—how DEOs run their companies and why this approach makes sense now. We help readers identify these skills in themselves and their colleagues, and we guide them in using these skills to build, revive or reinvent the next generation of great companies and organization.
