The Human in Politics [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Anne Phillips | Editor's note: Unfortunately the first few minutes of the lecture are missing from this recording. In this inaugural lecture, to celebrate her appointment as the Graham Wallas Professor of Political Science, Anne Phillips addresses the status of the human in politics.

5.3.2 Plan auditing

Having got the draft plan, it is worth checking it over to see that all the major issues have been covered. The appendix below contains a set of guidelines for the initial audit of a generic ‘general purpose’ plan.

4.4 Discussion

In this second case study, I have described two different trends in energy use by cold appliances over the last few decades. On the one hand the efficiency with which appliances use electrical energy has improved but, in spite of this, their consumption of electricity has increased significantly in recent decades. Since 2000 consumption has started to decline, probably as a result of the introduction of minimum energy standards. The trend will only continue if we demand and use the most energ

How to Prove Triangles are Similar
Students learn the following theorems related to similar
triangles. If an angle of one triangle is congruent to an angle of
another triangle, and the lengths of the sides that include each angle
are in proportion, then the triangles are similar (Side-Angle-Side
Similarity Theorem, or SAS Similarity Theorem). If the lengths of the
sides of two triangles are in proportion, then the triangles are
similar (Side-Side-Side Similarity Theorem, or SSS Similarity Theor

1.5 ‘Radiative forcing’ as an agent of climate change

Since its first major report in 1990, the IPCC has used the concept of ‘radiative forcing’ as a simple measure of the importance of a potential climate change mechanism. The basic idea is straightforward. Any factor that disturbs the radiation balance at the top of the atmosphere has the potential to ‘force’ the global climate to change: it will either warm up or cool down until a balance is restored. The perturbation to the energy balance of the whole Earth-atmosphere system i
