This song and slide show focuses on the color purple. The song is to the tune of "Camptown Races" and shows the word purple and items that are purple. (:36)
17.918 New Global Agenda: Exploring 21st Century Challenges through Innovations in Information Techn
This workshop is designed to introduce students to different perspectives on international politics in the 21st century. Students will explore how advances in information technology are changing international relations and global governance through opening new channels of communication, creating new methods of education, and new potentials for democratization. We will consider the positive and negative externalities associated with applications of such technologies. Students will be encouraged t
15.062 Data Mining (MIT)
Data that has relevance for managerial decisions is accumulating at an incredible rate due to a host of technological advances. Electronic data capture has become inexpensive and ubiquitous as a by-product of innovations such as the internet, e-commerce, electronic banking, point-of-sale devices, bar-code readers, and intelligent machines. Such data is often stored in data warehouses and data marts specifically intended for management decision support. Data mining is a rapidly growing field that
How do Architects Design?
This study is proposes a descriptive model of the design behavior of architects. In the first section a framework for the model is proposed. In the second section the framework is tested against empirical data. 11 information processing mechanisms are observed in the data. Eight of these: information acquisition, problem interpretation, problem representation, solution generation, solution integration, solution evaluation, perception and sketching, are used in developing design solutions. The th
Rapid solidification in an atomised droplet
Because of the fine scale of the droplet, heat extraction is very rapid, and large undercoolings are achieved before crystal nucleation can begin. Thus, in this droplet, the solidification front has advanced very rapidly through the droplet from the nucleation point (on the surface at the left of the image). Its velocity is initially so great that no interfacial breakdown is possible. As the front advances, however, latent heat is evolved and this 'recalescence' reduces the rate of solidifica
Is there a healthy future for Big Pharma?
Dr Patterson will review the background to the pharmaceutical crisis and the different ways that companies are approaching the issues. The lecture will review both the research and development and business issues facing the industry and its investors. The Pharmaceutical industry has been through a period of unprecedented growth in the last three decades, fuelled by the advances in biomedical science and an increasingly affluent Western Society. Looking forward, the picture is less rosy with red

Delivering out of hospital healthcare in the UK
Pam Garside's new report "Out of Hospital Care - Lessons from the US" explains why technological advances that have lead to the development of pressure sensitive carpets, talking pill bottles that say when to take medicine and applications for mobile phones will enable patients to be successfully treated at home in the UK.

Review of synaptic transmission of neurotransmitters.
This course reviews the key genomic technologies and computational approaches that are driving advances in prognostics, diagnostics, and treatment. Throughout the semester, emphasis will return to issues surrounding the context of genomics in medicine including: what does a physician need to know? what sorts of questions will s/he likely encounter from patients? how should s/he respond? Lecturers will guide the student through real world patient-doctor interactions. Outcome considerations and so
Director of the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Clean Water Technologies. Making sure the world’s population has enough drinking water is one of the biggest challenges we face today. A rapidly increasing global population, the fact that only a very small percentage of global water is available for consumption and an uneven global distribution of clean drinking water are the main problems in regard to the current global water crisis. Professor Hilal discusses these problems and some o
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a Greenland Shark swimming in its natural habitat. Amongst the world’s largest sharks, the Greenland shark is an elusive species of dogfish that inhabits the icy waters of the Arctic and the northern Atlantic. Also known as the large sleeper shark for its sluggish movements, the body is heavy-set, the spineless dorsal fins are greatly reduced, and the snout is short and rounded. This is a great resource to help
This report describes and theorises the findings of a workshop discussion, commissioned by WYLLN, into the views of arts organizations on the challenges they face in becoming more enterprising and less grant dependent.
Barriers to global trade may be lower, but they still remain difficult to overcome for countries with less historical, legal or cultural ties and especially those far apart from each other. Experience can reduce costs and boost exports.
Tilli Tansey, Professor of History of Modern Medical Sciences, University College London traces the evolution of the modern pharmaceutical industry from the mid nineteenth century to the final decades of the twentieth century. The strong focus on British companies is not exclusive, and a large cast of characters including manufacturers, doctors, scientists and patients are considered. Several themes are explored, including the role of innovation in relation to production technology, marketing an
We learn what a rational expression is, and how to simplify it. We learn to identify a rational expression's excluded values.
The research presents the importance of the experimentations within education of architecture project. Since the studies for traditional and emergent ways with use them digital tools, it values the project inquiries in the simulations of the models in 3D. For many times, the digital model for being tangible cannot present a difficulty in the understanding of constructive details. As in the digital tools, more specifically BIM (Building Information Modeling) possess integrated standards complex.
