PROJECTED SPACE: CHARACTERIZING THE ?CYBRID ARCHITECTURE?.
The ?cybrid architecture? has been defined like integration of physical and digital spaces. Based on the capability of electronic media to generate virtual environments (cyberspaces) which could be related to buildings. However, theoretical studies and contemporary works reveal a more complex relationship between media and constructions. Expressed in architectural characteristics that constitutes a new spatial quality, named here projected space. Hence the paper argues that ?cybrid architecture?

Speaker(s): Dr Jan Kleinheisterkamp, Professor Martti Koskenniemi | The Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) have recently become a major political stumbling stone. What can be learned from the resistance in terms of legal compatibility with EU law and domestic law – and of political acceptability? Jan Kleinheisterkamp is Associate Professor at LSE Law and teaches International Arbitration, Contracts, and Investment Tr
In the Flow Rate Experiment, students perform hands-on experiments with a common faucet, as well as work with the Engineering Our Water Living Lab to gain a better understanding of flow rate and how it pertains to engineering and applied science. Students calculate the flow rate of a faucet for three different levels (quarter blast, half blast, and full blast). Building on these calculations, students hypothesize about the flow rate in a nearby river, and then use the Engineering Our Water Livin
To develop an understanding of modern industrial technologies that clean up and prevent air pollution, students build and observe a variety of simple models of engineering pollutant recovery methods: scrubber, electrostatic precipitator, cyclone and baghouse. In an associated literacy activity, students become more aware of global environmental problems and play a part in their solution by writing environmental action campaign letters.
Students observe demonstrations, and build and evaluate simple models to understand the greenhouse effect and the role of increased greenhouse gas concentration in global warming.
The Innovative Didactics via web Based Learning project accents on an innovative methodology of web use in the classroom. During the project realization a repository, containing IDWBL scenarios was developed. Teachers of the National High School of Mathematics and Science were acquainted with the methodology through the cascade approach. After that the IDWBL methodology was experimented in the classrooms in regular classes. The current paper comments the results of the teacher trainings and the
Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History (FMNH) Web site currently features museum-sponsored research on the phylogeny of Madagascar's living Carnivora. Previously thought to represent two to four separate lineages, the island's carnivores are now known to have descended from a single species. These findings, recently published in the journal Nature, are presented in the FMNH Web site as a 4-page press release that should appeal to general readers as well as interested researchers.
Different studies (Arce and Betancourt, 1997; Séré, 2002) emphasize the importance of the task of experimental procedure design in a learning context. However, the required design is a difficult task for students (Séré and Beney, 1997). Consequently, students are hardly ever allowed to design their own experiment. The study by Tiberghien et al. (2001) showed that to learn how to plan an investigation in order to address a specific question or problem was the least frequent process object
The Documentary Project for Refugee Youth is a collaboration between refugee youth, Raeshma Razvi, Global Action Project, the International Rescue Committee and other community organizations and artists in New York City. The Project revolves around a core group of 12 refugee youth living in New York City, and the Friday night workshop the group attends. The Project engages in multimedia documentary work -- interviews, photography, journal-writing and video -- to create meaningful products about
Professor Jack Miles of the University of California at Irvine gives this lecture entitled 'America, Islam and the 'ground zero mosque'' at The Australian National University on 9 September 2010. Plans to build an Islamic centre near the site of the 9/11 bombing have become a flashpoint for debate over the nature of America's relations with Islam. Eminent American religion scholar and journalist Professor Jack Miles argues that the conservative critics of the "ground zero mosque" are Osama bin
Fifty years after Sputnik, satellites peering down on Earth have become valuable scientific tools to study the global environment and offer much needed insight into the future of our planet.
By building their own DNA model in this OLogy activity, kids learn about the unique genetic code that's found in every cell of their bodies. The activity begins with a brief look at how all living things are made of cells, and what that makes them unique is DNA. Then, using toothpicks, colored paper, and other common supplies, students create a 3-D model of DNA and "do the DNA twist" to make it look like a double spiral. Interspersed throughout the activity are kid-friendly descriptions of the d
This OLogy activity explores the symbolic and archaeological importance of coins. The activity opens by introducing kids to the elements of coins: dates, names, images, mottoes, and materials. Then, kids are given step-by-step illustrated directions for designing a coin. The activity includes a Global Coin Collection, a printable PDF handout with photographs of coins from 14 countries, and an introduction to the kid who has collected these coins.
This site features Flash animations that illustrate how the Global Positioning System (GPS) works. The animations depict how GPS signals are derived, compare geostationary and polar orbits, and explain satellites, ground control, and user segments, which comprise the three main GPS components. These resources are suitable for use in lectures, labs, or other teaching activities.
This site features Flash and QuickTime animations that illustrate diurnal changes in wind patterns along coasts due to unequal heating of the land and water, the Coriolis Effect on the Earth's surface and in the context of everyday weather patterns, and global circulation, temperature, and wind patterns. The animations can be paused and rewound to stress important points. These resources are suitable for use in lectures, labs, or other teaching activities.

The patient is a 68-year-old Caucasian male admitted to the VA on February 27, 2002, because of severe tremors and inability to walk due to chronic Parkinson Disease. This gentleman had been living with Parkinson Disease for many years and apparently, in spite of prescribed medications, had not improved or was getting worse. He experiences tremors, drooling, an inability to walk, and difficulty swallowing. Recently he had been unable to take the full dose of his carbidopa/levodopa medication du
Vanderbilt archeologist Tiffiny Tung leads students to Peru where they assist in groundbreaking research into the Wari culture, a society that existed over 1500 years ago. Tung is the recipient of the 2011-12 Chancellor’s Cup. The award is given annually for “the greatest contribution outside the classroom to undergraduate student-faculty relationships in the recent past.”
A Living History Day turns students into teachers and challenges them to think historically.
