Science Fair Project (Hot Ice)
This is a brief video of a school science fair project that won first place. Sodium Acetate was used in the project to create "hot ice", a liquid substance that instantly turns solid when touched. The video is set to music with brief descriptions written on the screen. No narration or explanation provided. Explanation: The reaction is exothermic and is often found in hand warmers. Run time 03:14.
On Moral Panics
Xerte. A review of some of the main approaches to defining and applying this important concept, which is found in all sorts of applied social science analyses, including work in leisure, media, crime, and sports science.
A Meta-Cognitive Inquiry into Digital Fabrication: Exploring the Activity of Designing and Making of
The design process is observed in ?self-reflection? by an experiment including visual computing, structure design, joint design, and assembly design. The experiment is defined as the making of a self-supporting timber wall screen, which includes laser-cutting and rapid-prototyping. The reciprocal action between the visual and physical realms is observed through the design activity.

1.4.1 Igneous rocks in the landscape The rocks that erupt from volcanoes are called extrusive igneous rocks, simply because they are formed by the extrusion of magma on to the Earth's surface. Igneous rocks can also form deep underground, and these are called intrusive igneous rocks, because the magmas were intruded into pre-existing rocks and then slowly cooled. The reason that intrusive igneous rocks are now visible at the surface is that over many millions of years erosion has stripped away the overlying rocks.

ENGL 151-01-02, First Year Writing Seminar: Writing Southerness, Spring 2007
In this course, students will develop a critical process that will benefit them as readersand writers in their current academic setting and beyond. Our particular focus will be anexamination of the South and "southerness." We will read essays (both by authors and peers) and employ a systematized logic to analyze the arguments and strategies of these writers while exploring what defines the southernid entity. The key to the writing for the course is to cultivate your own process of invention, dra

2.2 What CEG can deliver for schools In the Ofsted inspection framework for English schools, based on the five themes from Every Child Matters, CEG is part of the school's self-evaluation of how it helps young people ‘achieve economic well-being’. Some of the evidence for achieving that outcome is how well young people are ‘prepared for working life’. CEG also helps achieve the outcome of ‘making a positive contribution where… young people are helped to manage changes and respond to challenges in their lives;

Presidents & American Foreign Policy
Are trends in global politics simply the result of large impersonal structural forces, or does human agency matter? For example, would America have become the dominant country in the 20th century regardless of who was president? To what extent did leaders matter, and if so, what kind of leader? Leadership theorists focus their attention on what they call transformational leaders, but were "transformational" leaders like Woodrow Wilson and Ronald Reagan really more important than "transactional"
Problem Structuring in Architectural Design
The purpose of this research is to describe in operational terms the process of problem structuring while solving spatial problems in architectural design. The designer's behavior is described in terms of problem structuring, when problem parameters are established or transformed, and in terms of problem solving when these parameters are satisfied in a design solution. As opposed to problem solving, the structuring of problems is an under-studied but crucial aspect of complex tasks such as desig

Retailing in Leeds - Consumer Shopping preferences
Leeds is a major city in the UK and as such is a magnet for shoppers from the surrounding region. Around 1.7 to 1.9 million people are in the catchment area as shoppers in Leeds city centre. Consequently retail is an important business for Leeds. John Temperley Senior Lecturer in Marketing in the Business School and a retail specialist, explains the choices that face consumers and what their preferences are, based on research by students sponsored by Leeds city centre management. The results ar
Modelling for Virtual Reality in Architecture
CAAD systems are using object modelling methods for building databases to make information available. Object data must then be made useful for many different purposes in the design process. Even if the capacity of the computer will allow an almost unlimited amount of information to be transformed, the eye does not make the transformations in the same ?simple? mathematical way. Trained architects have to involve in an inventive process of finding ways to ?harmonize? this new medium with the human
