Duke Chapel Live - Easter - 4/8/2012 Opening Excerpt from the Sermon:(47:35) "I wonder if you've ever looked into a deep, dark, cave. It's cold, it's mysterious, it's maybe a little damp, and there's this little voice in your head that's saying to you, 'If I go down too far into it either there'll be something scary and angry down there that'll get me, or, maybe worse, there'll be some kind of rock that will roll across the face of the cave and shut me in -- and no one will hear my cries.'

They cover all areas of philanthropy from education, to disaster relief and social welfare. It is possible to sign up to receive RSS research alerts when new items are added.
Bezier Surface : Surface Intersection
In this article the authors explain the computational requirement and accuracy of two methods for finding the intersection of Bezier surfaces. In both methods, the existence of an intersection curve is confirmed by using the convex hull property of such surfaces. The first method evaluates the intersection by recursive subdivision of two patches with overlapping hulls. The second method detects a point on the intersection curve, then incrementally traces the intersection in the parametric spaces
Computers for Architects - Only a Tool?
The paper states that, as a result of the schism between architecture as art and engineering as rationalism, the architectural community underestimates the computer as tool with a potential to substantially enlarge the possibilities of building design. It is claimed that the computer could serve as coordination tool for the ruptured design process, as a virtual workbench where all design disciplines sit together and develop their designs in enhanced conscience of what the whole design demands.

Ancient DNA - bringing the past to life (short version)
Taking archeology a step beyond traditional pottery shards, Brian Kemp analyzes ancient DNA (aDNA) from bones, teeth, and desiccated feces (coprolites) to help bring prehistoric Native American cultures alive in ways never before possible. As a molecular anthropologist, Kemp compares archeological findings with genetic information to detect past demographic shifts, population interactions, and movements throughout the Americas. By plotting aDNA together with artifacts in the ground, specific tr
Didactic Design: light and optics for preschool level
Since 2003, we have been developing a pedagogic proposal and didactic material for teaching Light and Optics to kindergarden children that enhances the construction of the first scientific thinking schemes. The design (industrial and graphic) applied to this project has generated an educational product composed of 44 objects. These materials allow teaching concepts such as: combination of colors, light indispensable to see, formation of shadows and images are not objects. These have been develop
