Angles in Semicircles
If an angle is inscribed in a semicircle, it will be half the measure of a semicircle (180 degrees), therefore measuring 90 degrees. This video describes how angles in a semicircle can be used to find missing missing angles and lengths. Pythagorean's theorem can be used to find missing lengths (remember that the diameter is the hypotenuse). Also, the measure of an angle formed by a chord to a tangent is half the intercepted arc.

Redefining the Wall: Architecture, Materials and Macroelectronics
As a principle element of architecture, technology has allowed for the wall to become an increasingly dynamic component of the built environment. The traditional connotations and objectives related to the wall are being redefined: static becomes fluid, opaque becomes transparent, barrier becomes filter and boundary becomes borderless. Combining smart materials, intelligent systems, engineering, and art can create a component that does not just support and define but significantly enhances the ar

Exploraci?n de relaciones entre analog?as y bocetos durante la generaci?n de ideas en dise?o industr
An exploration on the analogy-based idea generation process in industrial design is reported. In particular we try to identify relationships between the sketching process and the analogy building in order to elicit requirements for a supporting software. We use concurrent think aloud protocols to obtain experimental data and an extension of a proved content oriented schema to analyze them. Statistical analysis on segments containing .analogical chains. found relations between analogical and desi

h-BN inclusion in a β-Si3N4 grain
The micrograph shows h-BN inclusion (precipitate) in a β-Si3N4 grain (within a silicon nitride particulate-reinforced silicon carbide composite). The occurrence of BN inclusions results from the introduction of colloidal BN into the hot isostatic pressing process. They are formed from B2O3 present as a thin surface film on the BN particles in the barrier layer. B2O3 will be molten during the pressing process and will diffuse rapidly into the powder compact and react with Si3N4 to form BN. Such

Diversity and compounding for enhanced discrimination of breast masses in ultrasonic B-scan images
Ultrasonic tissue characterization aims at improving the ability of ultrasound to classify benign and malignant masses. The akagami distribution was recently proposed to model the statistics of the envelope of the backscattered echo from tissue. Its parameters demonstrated an ability to discriminate benign and malignant masses in breast tissue. However, there is a need to improve the performance of the parameters to reach clinically acceptable standards and also to eliminate any influence of var
