Is Local Radio at the Heart of the Community? - Bill Heine and Daniel Bruce
Bill Heine is considered by many to be very opinionated and perhaps somewhat controversial in the field of radio presenting, Heine is not afraid to speak his mind and allows his listeners to do the same during his phone-in show. Heine employed the sculptor John Buckley in 1986 to design a 25ft fibreglass sculpture of a shark that appears to be crashing through the roof of his house, it forms something of a controversial local landmark. Daniel Bruce became Regional Managing Editor for all of th
Meeting Standards with Our Documents
As an assessment activity at the end of a U.S. History survey course, provide students with copies of appropriate national, state and/or local curriculum standards and a list of all of the 100 Our Documents. Divide the class into groups of three or four and assign each group an equal number of the Our Documents. Ask students to conduct secondary research to correlate their Documents to the standards. Allow each group to present their findings orally to the class. The result will be a ready-made
LSE Literary Weekend - The Financial Crisis, Climate Change and Energy
Political action and intervention, on local, national and international levels, is going to have a decisive effect on whether or not we can limit global warming, as well as how we adapt to that already occurring. At the moment, however, Anthony Giddens argues controversially, we do not have a systematic politics of climate change.
Essentials of Probability and Statistical Inference IV: Algorithmic and Nonparametric Approaches
Introduces the theory and application of modern, computationally-based methods for exploring and drawing inferences from data. Covers re-sampling methods, non-parametric regression, prediction, and dimension reduction and clustering. Specific topics include Monte Carlo simulation, bootstrap cross-validation, splines, local weighted regression, CART, random forests, neural networks, support vector machines, and hierarchical clustering. De-emphasizes proofs and replaces them with extended discussi
11.401 Introduction to Housing, Community and Economic Development (MIT)
This class explores how public policy and private markets affect housing, economic development, and the local economy. It provides an overview of techniques and specified programs, policies, and strategies that are (and have been) directed at neighborhood development. It gives students an opportunity to reflect on their personal sense of the housing and community development process. And it emphasizes the institutional context within which public and private actions are undertaken.
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
From 2D Base Map To 3D City Model
Since 1997 Helsinki City Survey Division has proceeded in experimenting and in developing the methods for converting and supplementing current digital 2D base maps in the scale 1:500 to a 3D city model. Actually since 1986 project areas have been produced in 3D for city planning and construction projects, but working with the whole map database started in 1997 because of customer demands and competitive 3D projects. 3D map database needs new data modelling and structures, map update processes ne
The Photoshop Crop Tool

Four Easy Questions
Should we teach CAAD? - yes, but why? Answer to this question is clear too. Question three - "when?" - on the 5, 6 and 7 term. Why so rate? - it is a compromise because "Architecture is an art" and students of architecture should know how to make a project without computers. How to teach CAAD? - we should teach haw to use professional computer programs and not programming. We must work out a new manual for architects. It should be constructed in such a way as to correspond to consecutive steps o
The Gold Standard Never Dies John Maynard Keynes thought he had pretty well killed gold as a monetary standard back in the 1930s. Governments of the world did their best to help him. It took longer than they thought. Gold in the money survived all the way to Nixon, and it was he who finally drove the stake in once and for all. That was supposed to be the end of it, and the beginning of the glorious ne

The Architect's Use of the Internet - Study of the Architectural Presentation Possibilities
The Internet media is opening new horizons in communication and representation in architecture. However, its use today is superficial, limited, and without creativity. This study will explore theories, methods and examples of how the virtual space of the Internet can be used in its full potential. That means to present ways of observing, understanding, interacting, and communicating the space without precedents in architecture. The existent presentations made by architects in the Internet are in
Sintaxis Grafica de la Multimedia (Graphical Syntax of Multimedia)
The multimedia offers an integration that must be made by the subject with the stimuli given, in their majority visual. For that reason it is interesting to know how effective may be the use of images and to propose some basic norms for designing multimedia software based on a graphic syntax
The Nagual Experiment
This paper refers to an experiment about the use of artificial life structures in order to simulate/evocate natural or artificial patterns. These patterns are the effect of the self-organisation of a population of individuals during their process of development and growth. Although the local dynamics and interactions have a chaotic (partially random) behaviour, the global dynamics of the population produces interesting and well structured patterns. The graphic images generated with these procedu
Study on the collaborative design process over the internet: A case study on VRML 2.0 specification
In this paper, we analyze the process of VRML 2.0 (Virtual Reality Modeling Language, Version 2.0) specification design for the deeper understanding of Internet-based collaboration. The VRML design process has the characteristics of being open to the public, geographically distributed, long-term, large-scale, and diverse. First, we examine the overall features of the design process by analyzing the VRML mailing list archive statistically. Secondly, we extract prototyping vocabulary (operational
2010 McColl School Economic Forum
The 2010 McColl School Economic Forum was held on October 15, 2010, prior to President Pamela Davies' annual State of the University address. Business leaders, investors, students and volunteer leaders from the university were invited to "Investment Opportunities in Troubled Times." Queens Trustee Alex Porter moderated and participated in the discussion. His fellow panelists were Joe Bossong (healthcare sector), and McColl School of Business faculty Dr. Randy Kincaid (domestic economy) and Dr. H
Computer Aided Environmental Solutions: Evaluation of Optimum Building Orientation in Lahore, Pakist
One of the primary features of solar passive design is the orientation of a building on a particular latitude. The client of Information Technology demands testing, validity, practicality and sustainability of a building project before execution. The computer based simulations are the only practical way to predict the complex energy performance and analysis for a large number of passive design solutions. This paper investigates the optimum residential building orientation having various zones, l
Notched zinc, broken by impact at room temperature
This is a notched zinc specimen broken by impact at room temperature. It has failed by a cleavage mechanism. One can observe the cleavage planes clearly separated by regions of local shear, where the fracture path crosses to adjacent planes. The cleavage planes are atomically flat and are not associated with much plastic deformation. At low temperature metals having b.c.c. and h.c.p structures have insufficient independent slip systems operating and are brittle, fracturing by cleavage.
