What people really want - User validation of "digital city" concepts
This Paper discusses the experience acquired from the user-compatible development of a digital city model as an aid to urban planning based on the endeavours of a large Austrian city. The method selected was a structured survey of the future users of the "Digital City". In the case in question, the addressee is initially an "internal" client, in other words the staff of the Urban Planning Department. Above all findings it seems vital to work more intensive on common terminology and concepts to f
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
Adaptive Generative Patterns: design and construction of Prague Biennale pavilion
This paper describes an experimental practice-based research project that considered design process, implementation and construction of a pavilion built to be part of the Performative Space section of the International Biennale of Contemporary Art, Prague 2005. The project was conceptualized as a time-bound performative situation with a parasite-like relationship to its host environment. Its design has emerged through an innovative iterative process that utilized digital simulative and procedura
The Harlem Renaissance Music
This short film, is an introduction to an interdisciplinary unit on the
Music, Art, and Literature of the Harlem Renaissance. The video begins with the introduction of slavery to the colonies through Obama becoming president. It then focuses on the flowering of African American cultural and intellectual life during the 1920s and 1930s through art, music, and literature. Different performancers are highlighted-information is given in text and images shown. (9:54)
Mini project : ROM based sine wave generator : document transcript
This is Mini Project documentation introducing a ROM-Based Sine Wave Generator. It is part of the 2009/10 BEng in Digital Systems and Computer Engineering (course number 2ELE0065) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. It includes an introduction, project briefs for days 1 and 2 and a preparation session. This project requires the establishment of a communication protocol between two 68000-based microco
Ellis on American Creation and the Founding
Joseph Ellis, of Mt. Holyoke College and author of American Creation, talks about the triumphs and tragedies of the founding of the United States. His goal in the book and in this podcast is to tell a story for grownups rather than for children, where the Founders are neither saints nor evil white, patriarchal slave-holding demons. It is a nuanced story of triumph--a military victory over a seemingly unbeatable vastly more experienced army, the creation of the first geographically large republic

The aim of this course is to introduce the principles of the Global Positioning System and to demonstrate its application to various aspects of Earth Sciences. The specific content of the course depends each year on the interests of the students in the class. In some cases, the class interests are towards the geophysical applications of GPS and we concentrate on high precision (millimeter level) positioning on regional and global scales. In other cases, the interests have been more toward engine
This course (taught mainly in English) explores practical ways to discover and understand culture in Japan, based on the gathering and analysis of qualitative data. Students taking the course will learn techniques of observation and interviewing and will practice applying these techniques in the real world in Tokyo.
This course introduces students to climate studies, including beginnings of the solar system, time scales, and climate in human history. It is offered to both undergraduate and graduate students with different requirements.
While many have said WatchKnow is easy to use, we think it can't hurt to explain it with a nice screencast. So here you go--how to use WatchKnow, in under four minutes. Covers opening categories; opening video pages; watching and rating videos; drilling down into the Directory; using the age filter; using the search engine to find categories and videos, and to locate where categories are in the Directory; getting an account; how educational professionals should sign up for an account; and My
The d'Alembertian is a linear second order differential operator, typically in four independant variables. The time-independant version (in three independent (space) variables is called the Laplacian operator. When it's action on a function or vector vanishes, the resulting equation is called the wave equation (or Laplace's equation). When it's action is identified with a non-zero function (or vector function) the resulting equation is called Poisson's equation. This equation is fundamental to a
The purpose of this seminar is to examine efforts in developing and advanced nations and regions to create, finance and regulate infrastructure systems and services that affect energy security. We will introduce a variety of methodological and disciplinary perspectives. During the seminar, students will explore how an energy crisis can be an opportunity for making fundamental changes to improve collapsing infrastructure networks. The sessions will be used to introduce the challenges to modern s
This paper considers transition from physical modelling to digital methods of the creation of architectural forms. Every type of creation has constructed the proper means of expression and its own methodology. The main thesis of this paper is that a specific character of the composition activity of an architect is determined by the modelling methods. As the research on architectural modelling, the two methods of creating spatial architectural forms (cardboard model and computer model) have been

The story of the heritage turkey. Discusses selective breeding and the effect on turkey characteristics.
The two-hundred-foot walls of ice in Glacier Bay overwhelm the senses, but they also surround the most beautiful sights Alaska has to offer -- the Northern Lights, roaming grizzly bears, and humpback whales. The glacier itself is also creating new life -- it has retreated some 70 miles up the bay, wiping the ecological slate clean, allowing new plants and animals to start again from scratch. (52:22)
Gil Won Ok, a former comfort woman, will be visiting Canberra to petition Australian politicians to lobby the Japanese government for recognition and compensation for the suffering that Korean women faced. While in Canberra GIL Won Ok has agreed to give a public lecture about her incredible and poignant story of surviving the military sexual slavery system sanctioned by the Japanese Government.
Crop protection mainly consists of the optimal application of preventive measures. (FIBL-Suisse fact sheet)
