Water Structure and Behavior
To quote the author, "Water seems, at first sight, to be a very simple molecule, consisting of just two hydrogen atoms attached to an oxygen atom. Indeed, there are very few molecules that are smaller or lighter. The size of the water molecule, however, belies the complexity of its actions and its unique capabilities and anomalous properties seem to fit ideally into the requirements for life as can no other molecule. A number of explanations of the complex behavior of liquid water have been pu
MIT OpenCourseWare-Introductory Biology, Spring 2005
This OpenCourseWare project has the videotaped lectures for the Sprin'05 version (7.014) of MIT's introductory Biology course. This course covers the "fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Biological function at the molecular level is particularly emphasized and covers the structure and regulation of genes, as well as, the structure and synthesis of proteins, how these molecules are integrated into cells, and how these cells are integrated into m
"Liberty Rhetoric" and Nineteenth-Century American Women
This site is an archive of primary sources (including songs, letters, poems, images, and speeches) and questions to ponder that help students examine and understand the rhetorical framework women used in the early nineteenth-century to argue for equal citizenship and to justify their civic engagement. The author shows how different groups used "liberty rhetoric" to assert their interests by focusing on the Lowell Mill Girls and the 1848 Declaration of Sentiments.

Design: Analogue, Digital, and Somewhere in Between
The problem considered in this paper is: ?In what way do we design?? This paper concentrates on the early creative stages of the design process during which the designer gradually gathers the information about the problem, applying appropriate rules, tools and media. If the tools are chosen as a starting point of consideration, designing may be analysed as manual or digital. If we chose the medium - design may be considered as physical or virtual. The main thesis of this paper is that designing
The Semantics of Graphical Input
This paper describes the semantics of action, an approach to describing input devices which allow the full utilization of all useful device characteristics and provides a high degree of hardware device independence. Part one discusses the semantics of graphical input device. The second shows how to create hierarchies of devices which provide a large measure of hardware independence. The third part applies these concepts to some typical problems, to demonstrate their completeness
Strategic Thinking on the Redesign of a Foundational CAAD Course: Towards comprehensive training on
The paper describes a new implementation of an existing course on digital design and its contribution to the curriculum of the undergraduate pre-professional architecture program at Ball State University. The strategic thinking behind the re-design of this course refl ects not only the need to update its content to reflect the state-of-the art in the domain but also responds to a diversifi ed context that exhibitschanging trends due to digital culture, use of digital media in learning and practi

The abstract presented here is part of a PhD research in progress, currently developed at USP - University of S?o Paulo, with the Nomads.usp research group, under the guidance of Professor Anja Pratschke. This research starts from the assumption that Cybersemiotics, initially defined by the Philosopher and Information Scientist Dr. S?ren Brier - and therefore gathers concepts of Second Order Cybernetics and Semiotics of Charles Sanders Peirce - while meta-theory designed and developed to promote
