Comparison of Designers? Modeling Approaches During Architectural Design Process
This study has been started as a part of a research, related to exploring impact of novel interfaces during collaborative architectural design process on designers? way of thinking. However, in this paper it is intended to focus on how the input devices reflect on designers? modeling behavior in computer environment. Therefore it is intended to compare designer?s modeling approaches in computer environment via a case study. Four master students in architectural design computing graduate program
Space-filling fire-resistant composite Barrikade (R)
The concertina-like structure of the exfoliated vermiculite particles is clear. This configuration is set by the binder during the initial cure. This is then followed by a moulding operation and secondary, inter-particulate binding.

Freedom of Expression and Hate Speech: What International Human Rights Law Says [Audio]
Speaker(s): Navi Pillay | In recent years, the world has witnessed a number of incidents involving hate speech at times with wide-ranging and global repercussions. Many governments have put in place measures which not always are in consonance with international human rights law. This lecture recalls the relevant provisions of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and showcases the jurisprudence of the
Tools of Expression: Notation and Interaction for Design Computation
Design considers function, fabrication, and aesthetics collectively. Computation is beginning to affect the competitive dynamics of design. Using algorithms, designers are exploring forms that are essentially ?undrawable,? even with advanced modeling and direct manipulation techniques. Determining the appropriate functional characteristics may require the application of increasingly complex structural- and environmental-performance analysis techniques. To realize physically a design may require
Fedflix: free film from US government
FedFlix is a collaboration between the National Technical Information Service and Public.Resource.Org. It provides free access via the Internet to films from branches of the American government. These include public information films, historic film clips and footage from the National Archives; Department of War; Chicago Police Department; Mine Safety and Health Administration; United States Forest Service and Federal Civil Defense Administration among many other departments.

Multiplying rational expressions is basically two simplifying problems put together. This video clip explains how to multiply rationals by factoring both numerators and denominators and identifying equivalents of one to cancel. Dividing rational expressions is the same as multiplying with one additional step—we take the reciprocal of the second fraction and change the division to multiplication. (1:41)

This video explains how a central angle is an angle where the vertex is on the center of the circle and the endpoints are on the circle. The endpoints on the circle are also the endpoints for the angle's intercepted arc. The angle measure of the central angle is congruent to the measure of the intercepted arc which is an important fact when finding missing arcs or central angles. (2:12)
This video describes how inscribed angles are angles whose vertices are on a circle and that intersect an arc on the circle. The measure of an inscribed angle is half of the measure of the intercepted arc and half the measure of the central angle intersecting the same arc. Inscribed angles that intercept the same arc are congruent. (1:44)
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.

Lose Yourself in the Digits - Song
This music video is to the tune of Eminem's "Lose Yourself" and teaches about the concept of Pi. Lyrics are not included on the screen but can be found at www.teachpi.org. The lyrics in the chorus are, "You better lose yourself in the digits of pi. It's a high but you got a thousand more to go. The numbers do not stop or drop into pattern, no. To memorize it would take most of a lifetime." (04:26)

Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras
In June 2009 the Operator Algebras and Applications International Summer School was held in Lisbon. Dr Joel Feinstein taught one of the four courses available on Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras. He delivered four 90 minute lectures on and this learning object contains the slides, handouts, annotated slides and audio podcasts from each session. Banach function algebras are complete normed algebras of bounded, continuous, complex-valued functions defined on topological spaces.

In the knowledge of previous discussions and academic experiences with the uses of digital tools in design process, some data has been collected among teachers and students to determine: .The nowadays role of digital graphic procedures in design for architectural works.. The study has been performed through exploratory research using: interviews, questionnaires and data analysis. The results shows the advantages and disadvantages of this type of design as well as allowed to come to conclusions a
