An Inquiry into Designing in Context using Generative Systems
The use of generative systems has been widely investigated in the architectural design process through different procedures and levels of autonomy to generate form.The digression from abstract pre- existing notions of vocabulary and rules ? even when resulting in emergent forms ? to address complex real- world contexts is yet a challenging undertaking.This paper explores incorporating context in the process of designing using generative systems from ideation to fabrication, and explores the rela

Isolating Multiple Strains of Escherichia coli for Coliphage Isolation, Phage-typing, and Mutant Rec
Recovery of Escherichia coli from a rectal swab begins a series of procedures combining mastery of technique with productive experiments. After isolating his/her own E. coli strain, each student recovers a unique coliphage from raw sewage and determines its host range, thereby revealing the genetic individuality of each bacterial and viral isolate. Colonies of virus-resistant mutants can often be recovered in regions where sensitive bacteria have been destroyed. After antibiotic sensitivity test

Active, healthy lifestyles
In this unit, aimed at teachers of Physical Education, we begin by looking at some of the common misconceptions relating to fitness and activity levels together with accepted definitions of these concepts. We consider how active young people should actually be, and discuss how PE teachers can ensure they are making an effective contribution to this area of public health.Author(s):

The Pope' actions are explained.
