Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended

From Biopolymer Translocation to Hemodynamics: New Challenges in Multiscale Computing
Multiscale modeling is the capability of representing different levels of phenomena, occurring at diverse spatial and temporal scales, within a unified conceptual framework. A typical example is the behavior of long molecules or nanosuspensions under the action of complex hydrodynamic flows. Our computational work tackles different phenomena such as biopolymer translocation through nanopores and hemodynamics in arteries with a novel computational scheme. The solution of such large-scale problems

Poor indoor air quality can affect IQ
A child's IQ can be affected by poor air quality. It begins even before a baby is born. Researchers in New York City have found that children exposed to urban air pollution before birth were more likely to have a lower IQ than less exposed children. The reduction in IQ levels was enough to impact the child's academic performance in school. In particular, the researchers measured the intake of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, which are chemicals that get into the air as a result of burning coal,

This video describes the properties of a kite. Knowing the properties of a kite will help when solving problems with missing sides and angles. Kite properties include (1) two pairs of consecutive, congruent sides, (2) congruent non-vertex angles and (3) perpendicular diagonals. Other important polygon properties to be familiar with include trapezoid properties, parallelogram properties, rhombus properties, and rectangle and square properties. (1:59)
Number of Diagonals in a Polygon
A diagonal is a segment that connects two non-consecutive vertices in a polygon. This video explains how the number of diagonals in a polygon that can be drawn from any vertex in a polygon is three less than the number of sides. To find the total number of diagonals in a polygon, multiply the number of diagonals per vertex (n - 3) by the number of vertices, n, and divide by 2 (otherwise each diagonal is counted twice).
