Rebuilding the City of New Orleans: Working Across Sectors to Achieve a Common Goal
It took John Fernandez more than a year just to begin to understand the political players and competing interests in New Orleans, and so it is no surprise to him that coming up with a common goal for rebuilding the city, much less a “resource efficient one,” proves elusive.
Nevertheless, Fernandez and other

Applications of semiconductor devices : switches (Electrical and Electronic principles)
This is a presentation about semiconductor devices - switches in the level 4 module Electrical and Electronic Principles and forms part of the 2009/2010 Engineering (foundation degree, BEng and HN) courses from University of Wales Newport (course codes H101, H691, H620, HH37 and 001H). It is a part of the core modules for the full time 1st year undergraduate programme. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engineering
Humans depend on water for drinking, as well as for domestic, agricultural, and industrial activities. Although water is a renewable resource, the water supply is limited and needs to be protected. One way for people to preserve water is to be aware of their own consumption. In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, cast members predict and and then compare how much water they each use during a typical shower. This video could also be used while teaching the scientific process. Closed captioning

Air Safety: Nothing But Blue Skies?
While Arnold Barnett acknowledges addressing the same questions around flying year after year (“Does he ever change his schtick?”), he advertises some new twists this time ‘round. Barnett remains remarkably consistent, though, in his quite sunny assessment of the current state of aviation safety -- even after a recent

The Generative Multi-Performance Design System
This paper proposes a framework for an integrated computational design system. This design system builds on the strengths inherent in both generative synthesis models and multi-performance analysis and optimization. Four main design mechanisms and their mathematical models are discussed and their integration proposed. The process of building the design system begins by a top-down decomposition of a design concept. The different disciplines involved are decomposed into modules that simulate the r
