Your skin covers and protects your body. Your skin can also detect heat and cold. If you put one of your fingers in the flame of a candle, your brain would gather this information and send a message to your muscles to move your finger out of the flame.

6.6.2 Hibernation-induction trigger Researchers have devoted much effort to the search for a possible blood-borne chemical messenger that might communicate a signal within the brain and to other body tissues, causing entry to hibernation. Serum from hibernating animals such as the woodchuck (Marmota monax;

Applying object-oriented analysis to the integration of design and construction
This paper implements an Object Oriented Analysis technique to model information related to design and construction. In a previous study, an approach to integrate design and construction processes based upon information analysis and modelling has been proposed. By breaking down the project's vast information into groups of related information, construction related problems have been identified and then traced back too their relevant design processes. This paper models this process using a relati
