Technical Paper 3 - The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Contextualising
This paper looks at the impact of recent government initiatives on early childhood care and education for 3 to 5-year olds in the full range of pre-school centres in the study. This was based on interviews conducted with 135 heads of pre-school settings and 12 local authority co-ordinators in six local authorities. At a time of rapid policy development and because of the diversity in pre-school provision, the EPPE study recorded how recent changes in local authority under-fives provision might b
Superspace: One Thousand and One Lessons in Supersymmetry
We introduce superfields in chapter 2 for the simpler world of three spacetime dimensions, where superfields are very similar to ordinary fields. We skip the discussion of nonsuperspace topics (background fields, gravity, etc.) which are covered in following chapters, and concentrate on a pedagogical treatment of superspace. We return to four dimensions in chapter 3, where we describe how supersymmetry is represented on superfields, and discuss all general properties of free superfields (and the
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
These middle/junior high school activities require students to find and graph factors such as wind chill and relative humidity for up to a month, drawing from datasets available on the Internet or from local sources. Students then hypothesize relationships between pairs of factors, and test their ideas using data from a site in Oklahoma with a Surface Meteorological Observation System (SMOS). The activities are part of the Atmospheric Visualization Collection (AVC), which focuses on data from th
Our Urban Future: the death of distance and the rise of cities
Improvements in transportation and communication technologies have led some to predict the death of distance, and with that, the death of the city. In this lecture Professor Ed Glaeser will argue that these improvements have actually been good for idea-producing cities at the same time as they have been devastating for goods-producing places. What, then, does the future hold for our cities? Ed Glaeser is the Fred and Eleanor Glimp Professor of Economics at Harvard, where he also serves as Direct

Virtue Under Fire: Leadership Attributes Required in 21st Century Combat
The purpose of this study is to examine sources of leader attributes and values of U. S. Army officers and to ascertain which attributes and values commissioned officers find most applicable to modern combat. The study compares the theoretical attributes taught in Army officer education programs with the attributes and values practiced by four commissioned officers in Iraq, Somalia, Rwanda, and Afghanistan. In narrative case study form, it presents a phenomenological exploration of the philosoph
TALAT Lecture 5202: Conversion Coatings
This lecture describes the key factors associated with conversion coatings on aluminium can be appreciated, such as general and local behaviour of the aluminium surface, range of conversion coatings and interrelationships, requirements of conversion coating, tailor-making of coatings, current and future issues. Some familiarity with the subject matter covered in TALAT This lectures 5101, 5102, 5201 is assumed.
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
Classification of Precedents - A Hybrid Approach to Indexing and Retrieving Design Cases in SEED (a
An efficient indexing of past solutions is crucial to case-based design (CBD) systems performing complex retrieval on large case-bases. This paper suggests a hybrid approach to the indexing and retrieval of design precedents. The suggested approach accounts for the issues of classification manifested in architectural discussions on type and CBD literature. The indexing scheme integrates description-logic based representation for classification and an object-based representation for precedents. T
Synthetic Research insinuates a relationship of a meticulous process of discovering truth contradicted against a fabricated, as in concocted, reality. It is important to recognize the logical aspect of synthetic when examining what synthetic research can provide for architectural discourse. Synthesis contrasts with analysis in that it?s primary methods involve recourse to experience; it is experience that is at the heart of synthetic research. The synthesis of theory, architectural constructi
High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)
High impact polystyrene (HIPS) or 'rubber-toughened polystyrene' is a two-phase mixture of polybutadiene (a synthetic rubber) in polystyrene. The two phases are immiscible, with polybutadiene crystallising out of the melt to form spheroidal particles. In fact, polystyrene is the first phase to crystallise, forming even an even finer dispersion of polystyrene particles which become trapped within the polybutadiene when a phase inversion occurs at around 10% solidification. In the particular re
Observations on Collaborative Design and Multimedia Usage in Virtual Design Studio
The virtual design studio (VDS) points to a new way of practicing and teaching architectural design. As a new phenomenon, little research has been done to evaluate design collaboration and multimedia usage in a distributed workplace like the virtual design studio. Our research provides empirical data on how students actually use multiple media during architectural collaborative design.

Eléments de mécanique quasi-statique des milieux granulaires mouillés ou secs
Cet ouvrage numérique permet de donner un éclairage nouveau à la mécanique des milieux granulaires et de montrer qu'elle est gérée par un petit nombre de principes et de concepts relativement simples, avec l'idée de favoriser le développement d'une nouvelle méthode, plus pédagogique et rationnelle, pour enseigner la mécanique des sols et des milieux granulaires quasi statiques. Sommaire du cours : 1.Introduction, 2.Rappels introductifs, 3.Introduction à la mécanique quasi statique d
