Time-based computer aided architectural research for mapping techniques in multicultural space re-de
This paper shall explore the process of research for the development of time-based computer aided applications as an alternative for mapping techniques. As part of an on going research, it was determined the necessity of implementing computer design strategies for time-based mapping due to the complexity and real-time variability of multicultural societies within its chrono-geo-ghraphical constrains for architectural space re-definitions.
Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms
The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) created the Talking Glossary of Genetic Terms to help everyone understand the terms and concepts used in genetic research.

Effects of agricultural activities on insect species richness in the intensively cultivated landscap
As signatory of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), China supports the 2010 Biodiversity Target to achieve a significant reduction in the current rate of biodiversity loss by the year 2010. This very ambitious goal must be seen against the background of a huge knowledge gap prevailing particularly with regard to patterns of insect diversity in space and time. Our collaborative research is trying to be instrumental in addressing the aforementioned knowledge gap by investigating how dif

NATO, the EU, the US, the Nordics, and Australia and New Zealand also seem to be stretched to the limit. Perhaps it is time for some searching analysis of whether the current machinery for international co

Do Garnaut’s targets add up?
On Friday, 5 September 2008, Professor Ross Garnaut released his much awaited supplementary draft report on targets and trajectories.

This, we are told, is a proportionate contribution to the ‘achievable' international goal of stabilising the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases at 550 parts per
