Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science: Session 1. Earth's Solid Membrane: Soil
How does soil appear on a newly born, barren volcanic island? In this session, participants explore how soil is formed, its role in certain Earth processes, its composition and structure, and its place in the structure of the Earth.,The segment shows the interviewer asking questions about phenomena, set up in different ways, to elicit the student's ideas about the space between particles and whether the number of particles changes. The student is asked to draw pictures and explain her ideas. The

Science in Focus: Energy: Workshop 3. Transfer and Conversion of Energy
Change happens when energy is transferred or converted. In this session, examine conversion between potential and kinetic energy. Through examples, see how events that involve a small amount of energy can trigger much larger events.,This segment explores the question "What are some of the forms energy can take?" by visiting classrooms as well as interviewing students and scientists.

Computational aspects of a design process: Mario Botta?s single-family house in Breganzona
The present study aims to foreground and investigate computational aspects of the design process of Mario Botta?s single-family house in Breganzona. Through the selected case, it mainly addresses the research question, ?what are the computational aspects of the examined design process and what is the nature of such aspects?? or, otherwise formulated, ?what aspects of such a design process could be formalised, and thus, represented or explained in computational terms?? The study primarily involve

Rethinking the Creative Architectural Design in the Digital Culture
This paper tries to examine the effects of emerging digital tools in architectural design. Digital tools are not only practical instruments used for drawing, but they also affect design thinking. As the ones that are used in architectural design are mostly commercial, one can say that design thinking, the identity of the design and the creativity of the designer are defined by the companies which develop these tools. Therefore architects have to be able to manipulate these tools and personalize

Myasthenia Gravis - Cranial Nerves Exam - Facial Nerve (CN VII) Sub-exam - Patient 11
Patient is a 52-year-old African American male who initially presented with diplopia and dysphagia about five years ago. Serologic testing demonstrated antibodies to the acetylcholine receptor, and repetitive nerve stimulation testing showed a decrement in CMAP at slow frequency repetitive stimulation. He now presents with generalized myasthenia, dysarthria, dysphagia and diplopia during a pyridostigmine-holiday for Tensilon testing.

Analysis and the descriptive approach
The rise of consciousness concerning the quality of working and living conditions has been a permanent though frequently underplayed theme in architecture and building since the reconstruction period. It has led to an explosive growth of programmatic requirements on building behaviour and performance, thus also stimulating the development of design analysis. The first stage of development was characterized by the evolution of prescriptive systems. These reversed the structure of pre-existing pro
