Two More Things to Worry About
In customary, loose-limbed form, Arnold Barnett reprises two of his favorite themes: improvements to the U.S. Electoral College, and aviation safety.
First up, Barnett’s suggested fix for national elections, which through the “fun-house mirror” of the Electoral College, permit winner-take-all results. His
Air Safety: Nothing But Blue Skies?
While Arnold Barnett acknowledges addressing the same questions around flying year after year (“Does he ever change his schtick?”), he advertises some new twists this time ‘round. Barnett remains remarkably consistent, though, in his quite sunny assessment of the current state of aviation safety -- even after a recent
Historia de la Psicología (2012)

The research presents the importance of the experimentations within education of architecture project. Since the studies for traditional and emergent ways with use them digital tools, it values the project inquiries in the simulations of the models in 3D. For many times, the digital model for being tangible cannot present a difficulty in the understanding of constructive details. As in the digital tools, more specifically BIM (Building Information Modeling) possess integrated standards complex.

Architectural References to Virtual Environments Design
Based on a comparison between the perception of digital and real construction, the development of virtual systems and the review of additional sources, this paper states some differences between the design of virtual environments and architectural spaces. Virtual-reality technologies provide advanced capabilities to simulate real situations, and also to create digital worlds not referred to physical places, such as imaginary landscapes or environments devoted to electronic activities, like enter

TALAT Lecture 2102.02: An Upper Casing for an Automobile Steering Column, Special Study: Impact Extr
This lecture offers an example of product development. It imparts knowledge about cold forging of aluminium and choice of alloy. It provides insight into how to develop a product using the general specifications and the interaction between form, material and processing chain and the importance of being thoroughly familiar with the different design materials, their processing possibilities and properties. The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general background informati

CMS.608 Game Design (MIT)
This course provides practical instruction in the design and analysis of non-digital games. Students cover the texts, tools, references and historical context to analyze and compare game designs across a variety of genres, including sports, game shows, games of chance, card games, schoolyard games, board games, and role–playing games. In teams, students design, develop, and thoroughly test their original games to understand the interaction and evolution of game rules. Students taking the

ANSO 105-01, Introduction to Sociology, Spring 2005
This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.,Although we all have first-hand experience with social life, this course is designed to help students move beyond their “common sense” knowledge of the social world. Through developing their sociological imaginations, students will learn to think critically about the roles of individuals, institutions, and social structure in society. We will use fundamental sociological concepts and theore
Biblioteca Virtual de Prensa Histórica

4 Adding variables
Handling statistical data is an essential part of psychological research. However, many people find the idea of using statistics, and especially statistical software packages, extremely daunting. This unit takes a step-by-step approach to statistics software through seven interactive activities. No statistics software is needed.
This course, offered by Professor David Solomon, is an introduction to biomedical ethics. The first part of the course provides an introduction to basic ethical theory, which is intended to serve as a background aid for thinking through the particular issues discussed in the remainder of the course. Specific topics to be discussed include confidentiality and truth-telling in the doctor/patient relationship, medical experimentation and informed consent, abortion, treatment decisions for seriously
