Intervenir la imagen... o el espejo m?gico (Intervene the image... or the magic mirror)
"A technology is interactive to the degree that it reflects the consequences of our actions or decisions back to us. It follows that an interactive technology is a medium through which we communicate with ourselves... a mirror" The purpose of this work is to explore the implications of interactive media through the review of "Utop?a" digital, an interactive piece that explore the implied transformation of the relationship between art and audience and new forms of perception. The artists' role is
Kenya and Somalian Agricultural Practices
This 1:13 video about a region of western Africa between the Sahara Desert and the Gulf of Guinea. It was largely controlled by colonial powers until the 20th century, Kenya and Somalians still practice ancient agricultural practices. The video does not provide enough information to stand alone. At best it provides insights to show how these Africans practiced proven agricultural practices for generations.

Cu 70, Ni 30 (wt%), cored dendrites
This alloy is typical of many copper based alloy systems. The dendrite structure shows coring (variation in solute concentration). The light areas are rich in nickel and the darker areas are low in nickel. Chill casting extracts heat quickly enough to prevent significant solid state diffusion, resulting in cored dendrites. The centres of the dendrites that cool near the liquidus temperature, are nickel rich compared to the outer layers that solidify at progressively lower temperatures. Because
Online information retrieval: identification of measures that discriminate among users with differen
The major goal of this research was to discover those behaviors associated with the process of online bibliographic searching that are correlated with success. In the assumption that more experienced searchers are more successful, the major research objectives were to identify (1) the differences among the searches of users of online systems who have different amounts of overall experience and (2) the differences between the searches of persons with and without experience on the data base being
Hurricanes: New Tools for Predicting
Hurricane Katrina, which struck New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities on August 29, 2005, provided the worst kind of reminder of the importance of accurate hurricane prediction — and of heeding those predictions. This video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW a year before Katrina struck, describes the current state of research into what causes hurricanes and how scientists are now able to "see" inside the storms in their ongoing efforts to more accurately predict both the path and int

Integrating Energy Design Into Caad Tools: Theoretical Limits and Potentials
The study is part of a research aims to establish theoretical grounds essential for the development of user efficient design tools for energy-conscious architectural design, based on theories in human factors of intelligent interfaces, problem solving, and architectural design. It starts by reviewing the shortcomings of the current energy design tools, from both architectural design and human factor points of view. It discusses the issues of energy integration with design from three different po
Learning Virtually: A Paradigm Shift in Design Education
We still think of architectural design education in terms of a "classroom" paradigm, that is, of an instructor teaching design skills to a class of students in a face-to-face format. However, emerging communication and collaboration technologies have created tremendous new opportunities to distribute students and faculty, while maintaining a close personal contact. This paper discusses and characterizes several aspects of the evolving paradigm of teaching design made possible by the ability to

8.06 Quantum Physics III (MIT)
Together, this course and its predecessor, 8.05: Quantum Physics II, cover quantum physics with applications drawn from modern physics. Topics in this course include units, time-independent approximation methods, the structure of one- and two-electron atoms, charged particles in a magnetic field, scattering, and time-dependent perturbation theory. In this second term, students are required to research and write a paper on a topic related to the content of 8.05 and 8.06.
7.51 Graduate Biochemistry (MIT)
The tools and analytical methods that biochemists use to dissect biological problems. Analysis of the mode of action and structure of regulatory, binding, and catalytic proteins.
Architecture and the Culture of Contingency
A culture is a set of behaviours, attitudes and values that are shared, sustained and transformed by an identifi able community. Currently, we are bound up in a culture of consumerism, and of terror; there are also retro cultures and utopian cultures. What?s happening now that?s interesting is that many, if not all of these diff erent tendencies, tastes and persuasions are being re-aligned, interconnected and hybridised by a vast global community of online users, who are transdisciplinary in the
