How the Presidency Is Invading Your Home [New York Post, October 11, 2010] The Obama administration isn't satisfied giving the American public vast things we don't want — from stimulus packages to bailouts to ObamaCare. Witness its attempt to redesign home appliances. In the pipeline are dumb regulations for almost everything that plugs in or fires up in your home.

International Relations, Spring 2007
This course is designed to acquaint beginning students with some of the fundamental principles of international relations such as realism and idealism. Realism, for example is based on the assumption that the state constitutes the most important actor in the international system. The course will also explore the nature of idealism, which emphasizes the role of international norms and ethics, such as the preservation of human rights, as a means of realizing international justice. The course will
Structure: Three credits. Three lecture hours per week (45 total contact hours). Fundamental principles in the design and analysis of engineering experiments: randomized blocks, latin squares, split plots, factorial experiments; fractional factorials; confounding and response surface methodology. This course is primarily designed for majors in Industrial Engineering (IE); however, it is appropriate for science and engineering students with background in statistics and interest in the character
Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P

Typical points, invariant measures, and dimension for rational maps on the Riemann sphere
We present three original results for the dynamics of rational maps on the Riemann sphere. Using methods from dimension and ergodic theory, we discuss generalized physical measures and prove their existence for hyperbolic and some parabolic rational maps. This shows that there are sets of typical points for these maps having maximal dimension. We then show that for any NCP rational map, the set of non-typical, or divergence, points is also of maximal dimension. Finally, we examine holomorphic fa
