Dayna Baumeister - Nature as Industry: The Role of Biomimicry in the New Green Economy
To create products and processes that are well-adapted to life, innovators are turning to a new design discipline called biomimicry, consciously emulating lifeâ making fibers like a spider, computing like a cell, and running a business like a redwood forest. Dr. Dayna Baumeister, co-founder of the Biomimicry Guild, discusses biomimicry and its role in ensuring the success of this new industrial revolution. With support from the Life Sciences Institute, Taubman College, the Graham Sustainab
Introduction to microeconomics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Semester 1 2009/2010. There are no pre-requisites to taking this module and in particular there is no assumption of any prior knowledge of economics. For those who have taken A-level economics or any other version of economics some of the module content will appear familiar to you. However, the methods of analysis and the approach to teaching will quite probably be very different to anything experienced be

Decision Trees Video Tutorial
Learning is the ability to improve one's behaviour based on experience and represents an essential element of computational intelligence. Decision trees are a simple yet successful technique for supervised classification learning. This tool demonstrates how to build a decision tree using a training data set and then use the tree to classify unseen examples in a test data set.

Comprehension of emotion in neurodegenerative disorders
Recent evidence indicates that the posterior corpus callosum is smaller in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Conversely, it has been demonstrated that patients with frontal systems deficits also have degradation of the anterior corpus callosum. Although these investigations indicate possible morphological relationships between the corpus callosum and cortical structures in neurodegenerative disorders, the relationship between specific neuropsychological measure of cognitive functioning and

27 Sep 2010: Energy Market Consequences of an Emerging U.S. Carbon Management Policy
Emerging energy and climate policies in the United States are accelerating the pace of technological changes and prompting calls for alternative energy and stricter energy efficiency measures. These trends raise questions about the future demand for fossil fuels, such that some energy-producing nations are reluctant to invest heavily in the expansion of production capacity. The abundance of shale gas resources in North America could allow the United States to utilize more gas in its energy mix a

Favoriser lintérêt des filles pour la génétique par linvestigation
Depuis plusieurs années, il a été remarqué un désintérêt des jeunes en général, et en particulier des filles, pour les sciences. Cet état de fait est un des critère pris en compte pour concevoir une séquence denseignement visant lapprentissage de la structure de lADN et la notion de mutations, en classe de seconde. La séquence sera développée dans le cadre du projet européen SCY (Science Created by You), dont lobjectif est de créer des situations dinvestigations suppor
