Press Regulation: Taking account of media convergence
This policy brief by media expert Lara Fielden proposes a radical new framework for press regulation, which addresses what Lord Justice Leveson has described as the 'elephant in the room' of the Leveson Inquiry: online media.

Through ten lessons and numerous activities, students explore the natural universal rules engineers and physicists use to understand how things move and stay still. Together, these rules are called “mechanics.” The study of mechanics is a way to improve our understanding of everyday movements, such as how gravity pulls things together, how objects balance, spin and twirl, and how things fly and fall. While studying Newton's three laws of motion, students gain hands-on experience with the con
GPS Receiver Basics
Students familiarize themselves — through trial and error — with the basics of GPS receiver operation. They view a receiver's satellite visibility screen as they walk in various directions and monitor their progress on the receiver's map. Students may enter waypoints and use the GPS information to guide them back to specific locations.
Through nine lessons, students are introduced to a range of energy types — electrical, light, sound and thermal — as well as the renewable energy sources of wind, hydro (water) and solar power. Subjects range from understanding that the movement of energy at the electron level creates electricity that powers our world, to recognizing the Sun as our ultimate energy source. Through numerous hands-on activities, students explore a wide range of scientific topics related to the fundamentals of e
