Hurricane Isabel Genesis
This animation follows Hurricane Isabel (2003) from its birthplace in the Ethiopian Highlands of East Africa, across the Atlantic Ocean, to the United States. Atlantic hurricanes are often formed as winds over the Gulf of Aden intersect with the Ethiopian Highlands. This animation zooms into the Ethiopian Highlands and shows several storms being formed. Then, the animation dissolves in a reticle to focus in specifically on the formation of Hurricane Isabel. The reticle follows the storm across A

Microeconomics: Theory Through Applications
Russell Cooper and Andrew John have written an economics text aimed directly at students from its very inception. You’re thinking, “Yeah, sure. I’ve heard that before.” This textbook, Microeconomics: Theory Through Applications, centers around student needs and expectations through two premises: • Students are motivated to study economics if they see that it relates to their own lives. • Students learn best from an inductive approach, in which they are first confronted with a proble
eZWSN: Experimenting with Wireless Sensor Networks using the eZ430-RF2500
Through this series of fully hands-on labs, you will explore Wireless Sensor Networks from an experimental point of view. No prior knowledge is needed, other than (very) basic C and some wireless networking theory. After this tutorial, you will be able to program a microcontroller (in this case an MSP430) and a radio chip (in this case a CC2500), and to implement state-of-the-art communication protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks.

4.7 The future? In the USA, the automobile reached the 50 per cent household penetration rate in 1923, about 23 years into the industry's development. The PC reached that threshold rate in 1999, also about 23 years into its development. Given the discussion in Section 3, this suggests that the economy-wide effects of the PC have yet to be fully seen.
