21.1  Introduction

The current climatic change trajectory predicts major modifications of average temperature worldwide (Bindoff et al., 2013). Regional temperature rise accompanied by rainfall scarcity will have major impacts on agriculture. It is expected that agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa will be particularly affected by these changes

(Niang et al., 2014). Sub-Saharan cereals agriculture relies mainly on native drylands cereals such as pearl millet and sorghum and non-native

Journal of Ecotourism

A refereed journal first published in 2002, to address the varied issues around the booming phenomenon of ecotourism. It aims to advance the field of tourism by publishing articles, research notes and book reviews about the social, economic and ecological aspects of ecotourism. Governed by an international editorial board, it invites papers covering empirical, conceptual and theoretical research investigating our relationship with the natural environment, including nature-based tourism, parks and protected area tourism, risk management, ethics, marketing, interpretation and education. With three issues per year, including occasional themed special issues, it has established itself as the leading journal in the field of ecotourism, has become an essential reading for stakeholders concerned with tourism, and complements the Journal of

Sustainable Tourism.

Example 28. Given that P ∪ Q = P ∪ R, is it necessary that Q = R ? Justify your answer.


Sol. This is not necessary. Since


⇒ all elements of P or Q are in this set.


⇒ all elements of P or R are in this set.


Q ⊆ P and also R ⊆ P. Then P ∪ Q = P ∪ R = P.

Therefore, it is not necessary that Q = R.

Let P = {1, 2, 3, 4}, Q = {1, 2}, R = {3, 4}, then P ∪ Q = P ∪ R = P

But here Q ≠ R.

Example 29. Given that P ∩ Q = P ∩ R, is it necessary that Q = R ? Justify your answer.

Sol. This is not necessary. Since

P ∩ Q contains elements common to both P and Q.

P ∩ R contains elements common to both P and R.

But it is not necessary that Q = R because set R can have elements of set Q which are elements of set P as well, but it can also have elements other than those in set Q. e.g.,

Let P = {1, 2, 5, 6}, Q = {1, 2, 8}, R = {1, 2, 9}

Then P ∩ Q = P ∩ R = {1, 2} ; but Q ≠ R.

Example 30. Given that P ⊕ Q = P ⊕ R, is it necessary that Q = R ? Justify your answer.

Sol. It is necessary that Q = R.

Because P ⊕ Q = (P ∪ Q) � (P ∩ Q) i.e., this set contains elements which are in sets P or

4 Juilliard, Studying with William J. Bell

Juilliard, Studying with William J. Bell

I ARRIVED IN NEW YORK CITY by train during Labor Day weekend 1950 and took a taxi to Mr. Bell’s uptown teaching studio. Tante Lena was still there, as was Eric Hauser, with whom I would share the back bedroom while attending Juilliard. It was a utilitarian apartment/studio. I took one good look at the back bedroom and immediately started considering plans for making it more comfortable.

The morning after I moved in, I spoke to Eric about doing some minor redecorating, at my expense, of course. Eric cordially allowed that I could do whatever I wanted to do, as the room had needed redecorating for too long. I went to Tante Lena about my proposal. As expected, she was delighted, especially when she heard I would paint the walls and install new linoleum and custom-made venetian blinds to replace the dirty old window shades. She was even more delighted when I paid two months’ rent in advance. I went right to work, scrubbing the walls and floor and measuring everything. Over the telephone I ordered the linoleum and the custom-made blinds, to be delivered in one week. I visited the local hardware store and bought paint, paintbrushes, spackle, putty, several grades of sandpaper, and the minimum tools I expected to need as a bona fide resident of Apartment 1-E. When visitors smelled fresh paint, they wanted to see the room. They were surprised to see burgundy walls and a white ceiling along with matching yellow-green venetian blinds and linoleum. OK, so it wasn’t stylish, but it had character to spare! I was finished with decorating our room.
