Theories and concepts
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or dowloaded as a zip file As taught in Autumn Semester 2009/10 The War on Iraq and the US and British invasion of the country in 2003 has led to huge tensions in geopolitics. At the same time, the supposed ‘threat’ of international terrorism and continuing financial turmoil in the world economy have both brought to the fore the global politics of co-operation and confrontation. Whilst it might be possible to agree on the significance of th
Understanding global politics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009. This module introduces global politics through the major theoretical, historical and empirical ways of seeing international relations. Different claims, about, for example, human nature, power, war, peace, the state, society, law and politics are offered by thinkers who exercise a major influence on our contemporary understanding. These claims contribute to different approaches to
Crime and Violence: Forces for Good or Evil?
This module critically evaluates contemporary understandings of crimes of violence. This unit will provide an understanding of the theoretical perspectives, definitions and understandings of the concept of violence. The unit will seek to assist students’ exploration of current attitudes towards violence within contemporary society. It will enable students to extend their understanding of criminological perspectives to the issue of violence particularly to specific groups and locations within s
International E-communication Exchange module
Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) has an ongoing e-learning programme integrated into its Criminology degree routes. This International E-communication Exchange (IEE) forms part of this and welcomes collaboration from partnered institutions that have similarity in their degree programmes. The core focus is on the criminal justice system, its organizational components and processes, and its legal and public policy contexts. This collaborative exchange enables students to interpret an

Physical, chemical, and biological processes, including primary treatment, and suspended growth and fixed-film methods for secondary treatment. Nutrient removal. Reactor design and process kinetics. State-of-the-art processes. Sludge processing and disposal.
American Indian Population in South Dakota
The American Indian population in the U.S., S.D., and many other states has shown significant growth in recent decades. It is also a comparatively young population. In this module, you will look at these growth patterns, compare the size and age distribution of the American Indian population in the U.S., S.D., & several reservation counties (& your home state/county if you choose).
Roll out the Red Window Decorating
Armed with brushes, tempera paints and a creative flair, Illinois State students converged on Uptown Normal and Downtown Bloomington to Spread the Red.
04 - Inferno V, VI, VII
This lecture examines Inferno 4 -7. Dante’s Limbo, modeled on the classical locus amoenus, is identified as a place of repose and vulnerability. Here, in fact, among the poets of antiquity, the pilgrim falls prey to poetic hubris by joining in their ranks. The pilgrim is faced with the consequences of his poetic vocation when he descends to the circle of lust (Inferno 5), where Francesca da Rimini, in her failure to distinguish romance from reality, testifies to the dangers inherent to the
Intern Yourself into a Career
Pam Cooper of the ISU Career Center and a panel of Illinois State students discuss internships.
Public Health Masters Course Handbook 2010-2011
A course handbook for the Masters in Public health at the University of Bedfordshire. This handbook can be used with the MSc in Public Health for both full time or part-time study. It focuses on giving student an insight as to what to expect on the public health taught course and also the distance learning course as well.
Hoopfest and Torchlight Parade
Both the Illinois State men's and women's basketball teams began preparation for their respective 2010-11 campaigns, as the programs hosted their annual Redbird HoopFest at 7 p.m., inside historical Horton Field House. Hoopfest was held at Horton Field House for the third-consecutive year, as the venue served as the home court for the Redbirds from 1963-89. The event featured a three-point shooting contest, a dunk contest and intrasquad scrimmages by both teams. Visit IllinoisStateHomecoming.co
Cu 70, Zn 30 (wt%) (pure) brass, dendritic solidification
An good example of dendritic solidification, which occurs when the solidification front becomes unstable with respect to small perturbations. This results in the growth of the perturbations, producing dendrites (from the Greek for tree). The variation in colour across the micrograph indicates that the cooling was sufficiently rapid to prevent solid state diffusion and hence a concentration variation. This phenomenon is known as coring.
Harrap Houseware Beatrice OK 20/2 Meat Mincer
Meat mincer; cast iron with red wooden handle and graded round cutting disks. Large screw at base to attach to table or working surface. In original box.. Maker: Harrap, Houseware - from the The Betty Smithers Design Collection at Staffordshire University.
Energy resources: Nuclear energy
The transformation of radioactive uranium and, in some instances, thorium isotopes provides vastly more energy per unit mass of fuel than any other energy source, except nuclear fusion, and therein lies its greatest attraction. The unit considers the advantages and limitations of generating this power and the environmental and security issues that the process raises. OpenLearn Resource - Time: 14hours and Level: Intermediate
Energy resources: wave energy
The energy carried by ocean waves derives from a proportion of the wind energy transferred to the ocean surface by frictional drag. So, ultimately it stems from the proportion of incoming solar energy that drives air movement. Just how much energy is carried by a single wave depends on the wind speed and the area of ocean surface that it crosses; wave height, wavelength, and therefore wave energy, are functions of the distance or fetch over which the wind blows. This unit considers the power of
Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Condensed matter
In this session we’ll look at certain macroscopic properties of solids that result from the quantum mechanical behaviour of electrons. This field of physics initially concerned just the behaviour of solids so was referred to as solid state physics. It has been called condensed matter physics since the late 1960s, when it was realised that the type of collective behaviour extended beyond that of electrons in solids to many other systems such as, for example, superfluids.
State crime: module mapping
This file is part of "State crime" deposit (see http://open.jorum.ac.uk/xmlui/handle/123456789/2845). It needs to be used in conjunction with the Mapping Tool, developed as part of the social sciences subject strand OER project (see http://www.c-sap.bham.ac.uk/subject_areas/elearning/oer/default.htm). The Mapping Tool allows the users to trace the pedagogic "journey" of the module and aids them in the process of repurposing the teaching material.
It is necessary to form a stable dispersion of nanotubes in order to properly integrate them into polymeric systems. This can be achieved by treating them with acid to oxidise the tube surfaces. The tubes will then spontaneously disperse in an aqueous medium. The viscosity of these suspensions is analogous to that of polymers; it increases gradually with concentration up to a critical point (at about 0.7 vol%) where entanglement occurs. However, their separation is determined more by surface rep
Energy resources: An introduction to energy resources
Energy resources are essential for any society, be it one dependent on subsistence farming or an industrialised country. There are many different sources of energy, some well-known such as coal or petroleum, others less so, such as tides or the heat inside the Earth. Is nuclear power a salvation or a nightmare? This unit provides background information to each resource, so that you can assess them for yourself.
