SiGradi2005: Vision and Visualization
Paradoxically, one of the most difficult but enjoyable things we do is to imagine. To open the eyes of our mind and see what no one else can see. We see images of things that are yet to be and through the same skill we devise ways in which to make them happen. We design the future in the form of environments, graphics, products, films, and a growing range of new media. Our ability to develop a vision and to visualize it is a gift that we are called to cultivate and put to good use. We have been
Article :: Comparing and Filtering Photos in Lightroom 3
If you take thousands of photos every year, you know about the complexity of organizing those images and finding the exact shot you need. Dan Moughamian, author of Adobe Digital Imaging How-Tos: 100 Essential Techniques for Photoshop CS5, Lightroom 3, and Camera Raw 6, demonstrates how Lightroom 3 can make these processes more precise and efficient.
Article :: Animating Text in Adobe After Effects 7.0
After Effects offers many ways to animate text. You can animate text layers by manually creating keyframes in the Timeline panel, by using animation presets, or by using expressions. You can even animate individual characters or words in a text layer. This lesson takes you through several different animation techniques, including some that are unique to text, while you design the opening title credits for an animated documentary called The Pond.
Article :: Selections: The Key to Compositing in Adobe After Effects 7.0
A particle physicist works with atoms, bakers and bankers work with their own types of dough, and compositors work with selections—many different types of selections, each of them derived uniquely. In this chapter, you'll look at the foundation techniques that define how a layer merges with those behind it.
Article :: Getting Familiar with Paths in Adobe Flash CS4 Professional
One of the most important innovations in Flash was a new set of tools that made creating vector graphics as simple and intuitive as creating bitmap graphics. This excerpt, adapted from Adobe Flash CS4 Professional How-Tos: 100 Essential Techniques (Peachpit Press, ISBN 0-321-58004-4), discusses paths, the most basic element of a vector drawing.
Analyzing Molecular Interactions
Nothing can happen in biology unless something binds to something else. Although much of the effort in bioinformatics to date has focused on the detection of homology or the deduction of structure and/or function from sequence, in the long run, for bioinformatics to make a real contribution to drug design and cell biology, it will be necessary to be able to predict what other molecules a given gene product will bind to and how tight that binding will be. At present, no one knows how to do this r
Article :: Mastering Vector Design: How to Create Illustrator Patterns
David Karlins dispels some of the myths about using patterns in Adobe Illustrator. With some very simple techniques, you can create and use fascinating patterns for strokes and fills.
Article :: Editing Paths in Adobe Illustrator CS4
David Karlins shows you how to use selection and editing techniques in Adobe Illustrator CS4, including selecting paths and path segments, grouping paths, and aligning anchors.
Article :: Using the Adobe Photoshop CS4 Histogram Panel
In this excerpt from Adobe Photoshop CS4 Studio Techniques, Dan Ablan explains how to interpret and work with the Histogram panel in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

15.063 Communicating With Data (MIT)
Communicating With Data has a distinctive structure and content, combining fundamental quantitative techniques of using data to make informed management decisions with illustrations of how real decision makers, even highly trained professionals, fall prey to errors and biases in their understanding. We present the fundamental concepts underlying the quantitative techniques as a way of thinking, not just a way of calculating, in order to enhance decision-making skills. Rather than survey all

Bio-security for a New Era
Secrets: The Ethics of Concealment and the Ethics of Science in Synthetic Biological Research Dr. Laurie Zoloth, Center for Bioethics, Science and Society, Northwestern University Increasingly sophisticated techniques allow for increasing powerful and creative tools of biology to create new or altered forms of life. Such synthetic biology may offer unprecedented avenues for drug development, alternate energy sources, and medical therapeutics. Yet increasing unease also mounts about the possibl
NASA CONNECT Centennial of Flight: The Wright Math, Problem Solving
In NASA CONNECT The Wright Math, students will learn about the evolution of flight. They will learn how the Wright Brothers became the first human beings to successfully design, construct, and fly an airplane. Students will learn the method the Wright Brothers used in designing their airplane. They will also be introduced to NASA's Morphing Project, a radically new approach to designing aircraft of the future. They will observe NASA researchers using problem-solving techniques to design wings th
NASA CONNECT Geometry of Exploration: Eyes Over Mars
In NASA CONNECT Geometry of Exploration: Eyes Over Mars, students examine how the principles of geometry and linear and angular measurements are used to survey and map the Earth and other planets. A surveyor explains how locations like football or soccer fields and describes the tools and techniques used. Students also learn how NASA researchers use geometric shapes to navigate spacecraft to Mars and how satellites, like the Mars Global Surveyor, and the principles of geometry, are used to deter
This text manual introduces statistical analysis and its underlying philosophy, enabling students to understand how to describe the confidence they have in their analysis. Statistical analysis is one of the most widely used, and abused, techniques in the biological sciences. Statistics are ostensibly used to allow an investigator to be objective. That is, the researcher uses statistical tests to determine whether or not his/her hypothesis is supported by the data collected. Unfortunately, the
