The Future of Broadcasting - Public Service in a Digital Age
The countdown to the end of British public service broadcasting has begun. In 2012 analogue is switched off as the digital competition threatens to shatter the status quo. Is this a cultural disaster in the making or an opportunity to create a more open and creative broadcast media?
Zimbabwe: Beyond the Endgame
As talks between Mr Mugabe and both factions of the Movement for Democratic Change open in South Africa, the crisis in Zimbabwe continues. Western countries are pushing for more sanctions against Zimbabwe's rulers, while President Mbeki and the African Union oppose them. Meanwhile, the shrinking economy provides Mr Mugabe with less and less to pay the army, police and administrators. The June 27 presidential run-off was dubbed the endgame. It proved just another stage in Zimbabwe's unfolding cat
Policy Responses to the Financial Crisis
Ben S. Bernanke was sworn in on February 1, 2006, as Chairman and a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Dr. Bernanke also serves as Chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee, the System's principal monetary policymaking body. He was appointed as a member of the Board to a full 14-year term, which expires January 31, 2020, and to a four-year term as Chairman, which expires January 31, 2010. Before his appointment as Chairman, Dr. Bernanke was Chairman of the Presid
The Future of Picturing the World: filming and imaging in a global era
(Editors note: Unfortunately the last few minutes of the question and answer session are missing from the podcast owing to technical difficulties.) Faced with 'compassion fatigue', how is the practice of filmmakers and photojournalists changing and what are the implications for those who rely on photography and film? How will the internet open up new spaces and change the way in which images are used? Lilie Chouliaraki is a professor in the Department of Media and Communications at LSE. Max Houg

A Colonial Legacy in Miskito Turtle Knowledge (Nicaragua)
Over the past several decades the increasing prevalence of natural resource crises has led many ecologists to seek alternatives to Western resource use paradigms. Primary amongst these alternatives are systems guided by indigenous knowledge (IK). It is commonly presumed that these systems represent institutions uncorrupted by the exploitative hand of Western culture and state domination and therefore hold the key to rectifying the unsustainable behaviors of Western societies.
The Grid Shared Desktop for CSCL
The Grid Shared Desktop (GSD) is a collaborative environment that provides a multidimensional humans-to-machine-to-humans interface by the means of multiples cleverly intricated desktops. The GSD is a platform independent solution that benefits of the intrinsic advantages of the Grid technology such as scalability and security. In order to verify that our GSD solution meets CSCL requirements, we have conducted experiments in the context of the ELeGI project. As part of the project use cases, the
Publication output from the 2007/2008 OpeningScholarship project which ran in the Centre for Educational Technology (CET) at the University of Cape Town. The main aim of this project was to explore the opportunities that information communication technologies and open dissemination models could offer for enhanced communication and more effective knowledge dissemination at UCT.

High magnification SEM image of open cell polyurethane foam
If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides, and some remnants of collapsed cell walls can be seen at the cell edges.

Evaluating intelligent buildings according to level of service systems integration
The intelligent building is supposed to provide the environment and means for an optimal utilization of the building, according to its designation. This extended function of a building can be achieved only by means of an extensive use of building service systems, such as HVAC; electric power; communication; safety and security; transportation; sanitation, etc. Building intelligence is not related to the sophistication of service systems in a building, but rather to the integration among the vari

If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides, giving rise to the tri-cuspid cross section visible at the bottom of this image. The average co-ordination number for the nodes (where struts meet) is four, giving tetrahedral junctions.
This book, designed for a two-semester general physics course for science and engineering students, presents a logical and unified approach emphasizing the conservation laws, the concepts of fields and waves, and the atomic view of matter. The special theory of relativity, in its more basic aspects, is used throughout the text as one of the guiding principles that must be met by any physical theory
A Hypermedia Model for Supporting Energy Design in Buildings
Several studies have discussed the limitations of the available CAAD tools and have proposed solutions [Brown and Novitski 1987, Brown 1990, Degelman and Kim 1988, Schuman et al 1988]. The lack of integration between the different tasks that these programs address and the design process is a major problem. Schuman et al  argued that in architectural design many issues must be considered simultaneously before the synthesis of a final product can take place. Studies by Brown and Novitski [19
TALAT Lecture 3710: Case Study on Can Making
This lecture gives a background of the design and manufacturing processes of food and beverage cans, which are produced by drawing and drawing & ironing of rolled aluminium alloys. It draws attention to the challenge for materials and production engineers to fulfill contradicting demands and requirements for the production of cans and easy-open lids in a very competitive market. It demonstrates that optimization of all parameters, i.e. design, manufacturing and materials, has resulted in sheet m
