Clean Energy: Converting Light to Energy
This unit explores the issue of energy production as a pressing global issue and how nanoscience could enable important breakthroughs in energy generation and conversion. In particular, traditional and newer "nano" solar technologies are introduced and explored. Upon completing this unit, students will understand: Clean alternative energy technologies must be developed to provide sufficient energy to meet growing global demand, and must be sustainable both environmentally and economically; Nanos
An Introduction to DNA: Spectrophotometry, Degradation, and the 'Frankengel' Experiment
In this laboratory students perform three exercises as an introduction to the basics of handling and analyzing DNA. In the first, they expose circular plasmid, linear phage, and high molecular weight genomic DNA samples to a variety of physical, thermal, chemical, and enzymatic conditions that might be expected to affect DNA integrity. The DNA's are analyzed by electrophoresis on a group agarose gel. In the second, they pour and reconstruct a "Frankengel" (a gel containing sections with three di
When Everything Looks Like a Nail: Graph Models of the Internet
The general appeal of abstracting real-world networks to simple graphs is understandable and has been partly responsible for fueling the new field of "network science". However, as the Internet application has demonstrated, such abstractions that ignore much of what engineers consider as critical come at a price. For example, they can lead to the study of graph models that have little in common with the real-world networks that motivated these models in the first place. In turn, they tend to foc
To What Extent Do Economic Conditions Determine the Outcome of Presidential Elections?
Students consider how economic performance is evaluated and are introduced to four major indicators of macroeconomic performance: growth rate of real income, unemployment rate, inflation rate, misery index. They complete a worksheet comparing changes in these indicators with the outcomes of U.S. presidential elections from 1960 to 1992 and examine the influence of economic conditions on the likelihood of the incumbent party winning an election.
Stochastic Evolution Equati
The lectures are at a beginning graduate level and assume only basic familiarity with Functional Analysis and Probability Theory. Topics covered include: Random variables in Banach spaces: Gaussian random variables, contraction principles, Kahane-Khintchine inequality, Anderson’s inequality. Stochastic integration in Banach spaces I: γ-Radonifying operators, γ-boundedness, Brownian motion, Wiener stochastic integral. Stochastic evolution equations I: Linear stochastic evolution equations: e
Le visite didattiche e il turismo scolastico
Le visite a mostre, musei, monumenti, percorsi urbani e paesaggistici sono incomparabili opportunità di crescita culturale ed umana e indispensabile complemento allo studio della storia dell’arte, avvalendosi del contatto prezioso e diretto con gli oggetti di studio. Il testo illustra agilmente come progettare e organizzare visite e percorsi didattici, con attenzione all’interazione di aspetti interdisciplinari, alla corretta fruizione dei libri di testo e dei siti internet, e alla delicata
"A Person Like Me, Oppress'd By Dame Fortune, Need Not Care Where He Goes": The "Infortunate" Willia
Many travelers made their way to Philadelphia and the Mid-Atlantic colonies in the eighteenth century in search of economic opportunity, but not all experienced the fabulous success of Benjamin Franklin. William Moraley, born in 1699 into a modest artisanal family, was more typical. Economic cycles were often critical in determining migration patterns; approximately 73,000 people left for the British colonies in the1730s, twice the average of earlier in the century (17,000 arrived in Philadelphi
The American Jury: Bulwark of Democracy
"The American Jury: Bulwark of Democracy" is a project of the Constitutional Rights Foundation Chicago and is the national expansion of "The American Jury: Past and Present," conducted in Illinois during 1998-1999. Beginning with a two-week institute in July 1999, "The American Jury" focused on the jury system in the United States. its role in American legal, social, and political life; its origins and history; its adaptations to changes in law and American society; its strengths and limitations

Otis MFA Graphic Design Guest Lecture: Walead Beshty
Graduate Graphic Design Presents a lecture by Artist Walead Beshty, who has long used photography as a tool to explore the social and political conditions of our material culture. More recently, the material conditions of photography itself have spurred his continuing investigations of the gap between the physical world and the image world, and the way this rupture is instrumentalized by ideologies that seek to infiltrate the processes through which we produce meaning.From his early projects, li
SAGP Guide to Clinical Medical Practice
Manual originating from personal notes made over many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa. A useful resource based on many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa involving major trauma, surgery and obstetrics, in addition to the common problems of general practice. I have always felt it very useful to be able to confirm facts and figures at the bedside if needed and this has been the motivation that has taken me over 40 years. This meant
Mabel Holmes' Diary, 1935-1939, part 1
Mabel Holmes, a longtime Topeka resident, kept a daily diary from January 1, 1935-December 31, 1939. During this time, storms resulting from the severe drought conditions blanketed the state in dust so thick that it could be pitch black in the middle of the day; Kansans were coping with an economic depression even worse than our current one; the threat of a second World War in Europe was looming. Against this backdrop, Mabel talks about the news, weather, shopping, outings with her sister, Elma

Saving Your Life: Medical Miracles and Heroes, Part 2
Technological breakthroughs and hybrid approaches to repairing abdominal aortic and brain aneurysms can mean the difference between life and death. These emergent, life-threatening conditions have been successfully treated by UW Medicine physicians who are leading the way surgically repairing these once devastating anomalies. University of Washington professors Drs. Joann G. Elmore, Laligam Sekhar, Hugh M. Foy and Benjamin W. Starnes explore the topic in the second half of this two-part program.
