21 - Other bad aspects of death, Part II
Further bad aspects of death are considered, including ubiquity, or the fact that death may occur at any time and strike anyone. Professor Kagan invites students to contemplate the possibility of death-free time periods, vacation spots, and activities. Then there is consideration of the value of the human condition, which consists of life, followed by death. Finally, the question is raised as to whether it could be appropriate to refuse to face the facts about our mortality. Professor Kagan dist
10 - Purgatory I, II
In this lecture, Professor Mazzotta introduces Purgatorio and proceeds with a close reading of cantos 1 and 2. The topography of Mount Purgatory is described, and the moral system it structures is contrasted with that of Hell. Dante’s paradoxical choice of Cato, a pagan suicide, as guardian to the entrance of Purgatory ushers in a discussion of freedom from the standpoint of classical antiquity, on the one hand, and Judaism, on the other. In his refusal to be enslaved by the past, both on e

Identify areas for hand and machine compounding
In this task students will be asked to identify which areas of a vehicle should be hand compounded and which areas can be machine compounded.
Identify the types and means of generating a pattern for manufacturing
A template is a pattern or stencil that is used in cutting the metal piece or pieces required to manufacture an object. Templates are often used for mass production in the engineering industry. They are developed by hand or computer and save time because they can be used again and again. Templates can be made of paper, sheet metal, cardboard or transferred directly onto material from a computer program known as CAM which stands for 'computer aided manufacturing'.

Austenitic stainless steel
This is a transmission electron micrograph taken at 200 kV, from a thin foil sample of "302AA" austenitic stainless steel. The sample was cold-deformed by rolling and then annealed at 704 °C for one hour. The image shows recrystallised grains which which show uniform contrast because they are relatively free of dislocations, surrounded by a deformed matrix which has a high dislocation density. The recrystallised grain contains annealing twins (parallel bands with different contrast. The steps a
Tools of Expression: Notation and Interaction for Design Computation
Design considers function, fabrication, and aesthetics collectively. Computation is beginning to affect the competitive dynamics of design. Using algorithms, designers are exploring forms that are essentially ?undrawable,? even with advanced modeling and direct manipulation techniques. Determining the appropriate functional characteristics may require the application of increasingly complex structural- and environmental-performance analysis techniques. To realize physically a design may require
StereoCAD: Three Dimensional Representation
Concepts of stereoscopic vision have been around for more than two thousand years. Despite this long history, its application to the field to architecture and design seems relatively unexplored. Synthesis of two technologies, the stereoscope and the computer, was the focus of the present study. The goal of the research was to determine if computer-generated stereoscopic pairs hold value for architectural design. Using readily available computer technology (Apple Macintosh) the research team mode
Cubic Spline Curve Fitting with Controlled End Conditions
Another method for cubic spline curve fitting. It is a more flexible version of a proven technique by using a set of end conditions suggested by Nutbourne. The advantages and disadvantages of several techniques are clarified and sample graphical output is given. The result should be of interest to users of inexpensive computer graphics equipment who are interested in improving passive graphical output

Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interview probes to find out prerequisite ideas about how mountains formed before probing for more sophisticated ideas about plate movement. The student shows she has some idea of the involvement of volcanoes and earthquakes but further probing reveals a limited understanding of their role.
