Automotive Drum Brakes
Do you know when the first car was built? Do you know who built the first automobile? Would you guess, Henry Ford? Try again. Do you know by what means they used to stop that car? We know the brakes on the vehicles we drive today are quite different from those back in the 1800s. While knowing the history of the automobile is interesting, knowing how they work is also interesting. The automotive brake or to be more specific, the drum brake is what this instruction is designed to review. In this i
Social care, social work and the law
The law and aspects of the legal system have a massive impact on the lives of social workers, from defining policy and procedure to the actual process of day-to-day working.

Not only do these discussions offer an insight into the justification and implementation of policy, the
1.2 The peptide bond and primary structure of proteins The primary structure of a protein is defined as the sequence of amino acids of which it is composed. This sequence ultimately determines the shape that the protein adopts, according to the spatial limitations on the arrangement of the atoms in the protein, the chemical properties of the component amino acid residues, and the protein's environment. The peptide bonds that link amino acid residues in a polypeptide are formed in a condensation reaction between the acidic carboxyl gr

Architectural Applications of Complex Adaptive Systems
This paper presents methods and case studies of approaching architectural design and fabrication utilizing Complex Adaptive Systems (CASs). The case studies and observations described here are findings from a continuing body of research investigating applications of computational systems to architectural practice. CASs are computational mechanisms from the computer science field of Artificial Life that provide frameworks for managing large numbers of elements and their inter-relationships. The a
Painting in the Dutch Golden Age: A Profile of the Seventeenth Century
Painting in the Dutch Golden Age: A Profile of the Seventeenth Century examines the culture and art of one of the world's greatest periods of creativity. The sheer volume—and outstanding quality—of the paintings produced can scarcely be paralleled. A 164-page book provides background information about the newly independent Dutch Republic and the nexus of its art and civics. Chapters look at landscape, still life, portraiture, and genre and history painting. Also included are artist biographi
Libraries, Archives and Museums: A Strategic Conversation: Opening Talk
Monday, April 9 For generations Harvard's libraries, archives, and museums have been pre-eminent participants in support of the research, teaching, and learning carried out both within the university, and also beyond its walls. In an increasingly connected global society, interdisciplinary work is becoming the norm and researchers increasingly seek and share information across formats, genres, and institutional settings. To support users and to continue to grow and thrive, libraries, archives,

This topic begins with a good introduction to the different types of joints (fibrous, cartilaginous and synovial) and each is described in more detail. A table gives a comparison between joint types and modern everyday items for the students to relate to (e.g. a hinge and the elbow joint). The next part of this topic describes the muscular system and gives a brief introduction to the axial and appendicular muscular system. The three types of muscle tissue are also described.

Building a True-to-Life Butterfly for a Habitat Diorama
When a real butterfly specimen in the coyote diorama was deemed beyond restoration, a decision was made to create a model. Conservation Fellow Bethany Palumbo explains the process, which included photocopying Museum specimens for the top-wing view, hand painting the underside, and building up the butterfly body with layers of glue. The restored Hall of North American Mammals reopened October 2012. CREDITS: PHOTOGRAPHY AMNH/Conservation Department VIDEO AMNH/J. Bauerle S. Sfarra
