[From The Rise and Fall of Society]
It is not incumbent on a diagnostician to prescribe a remedy, and it would be quackery for him to do so when he has misgivings as to its curative value. It may be that the struggle between Society and the State is inevitable; it may be i
TALAT Lecture 2504: Examples and Applications
This lecture shows how?to calculate the required fire resistance of un-insulated and insulated load bearing structural members such as columns and beams on the basis of a simple calculation method and according to ENV 1999-1-2; it points out more refined methods of analysis with the aid of computer programs; it presents some approved and existing fire resistance rated applications, e.g. in the off-shore industry. Background in structural engineering and some familiarity with TALAT lectures 2501-
Envisioning Cyberspace: The Design of On-Line Communities
The development of the World Wide Web into an active, visual social environment poses unique opportunities for the design professions. Multi-user Domains, social meeting places in cyberspace, are mostly text-based virtual realities which use spatial references to set the stage for social interaction. Over the past year design students at the New Jersey Institute of Technology School of Architecture have investigated several text-based domains. In the course of their work, they envisioned and gra
TALAT Lecture 2401: Fatigue Behaviour and Analysis
This lecture explains why, when and where fatigue problems may arise and the special significance to aluminium as structural material; it helps to understand the effects of material and loading parameters on fatigue; to appreciate the statistical nature of fatigue and its importance in data analysis, evaluation and use; it shows how to estimate fatigue life under service conditions of time-dependent, variable amplitude loading; how to estimate stresses acting in notches and welds with conceptual
Knox appeals over Kercher murder
Jailed U.S. student Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito are appealing against their convictions for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.
Presenting and interpretting Meta-analysis
How to present and interpret the results of a meta-analysis using forest plots.

Standard Life Insurance Company Banquet at the Columbia Club
Description not set
I expect to have work there next summer & if I do you have a chance whenever you come. Pilot Knob is 86 miles south of St Louis via “St Louis & Iron Mountain R. Road.” You will doubtless fell surprised at finding me here in Memphis, in fact I feel surprised at it myself. But as there was a prospect of times being dull there this winter, & as I had word from here of the business of the times & the offer of a steady job all winter at $2.50 per day, I thot that I could do no better than to co
Lidar Technology and Applications
This course offers an introduction to the capabilities of lidar sensors and platforms, data processing systems, and derived digital data products. Students in this course will master basic skills needed to leverage commercial lidar data sources and information products in a broad range of applications, including topographic mapping, flood inundation studies, vegetation analysis, and 3D modeling of urban infrastructure.
New Design Methods for Computer Aided Architectural Design Methodology Teaching
Architects and architectural students are exploring new ways of design using Computer Aided Architectural Design software. This exploration is seldom backed up from a design methodological viewpoint. In this paper, a design methodological framework for reflection on innovate design processes by architects that has been used in an educational setting is introduced.The framework leads to highly specific, weak design methods, that clarify the use of the computer in the design process.The framework
Chemical Equilibria: The Law of Mass Action
Fundamental ideas and terminology of equilibria from a general chemistry perspective. A focus on closed systems, reversible chemical reactions, the law of mass action, Q and K. Also included are several multiple-choice questions that test the theories discussed. This site provides supplementary material that could be useful to beginning students in general and analytical chemistry.
Multiple links in a broad discussion of several facets of chromatography - including theoretical and instrumental aspects. Five modes of chromatography are highlighted: GC, HPLC, LC, SEC and TLC.
A site with animation that provides a very brief introduction to the idea of separation of components in a mixture and a set of instructions for students for separating colored compounds by paper chromatography (on coffee filters). The appropriate audience would be students in a high-school or introductory, non major\'s college chemistry class.
Finance For New Ventures
The objectives of this course are to help students:Comprehend the process in which new business ventures are created; understand the financial aspects of the dynamics of the decision making process and day-to-day operations of a venture; become familiar with the various debt and equity sources of financing available to new and growing businesses; understand cash flow and pro forma logic and be able to apply the mechanics to income statement and balance sheet analysis and construction; apply econ
This course is about developing analytical and conceptual skills required to test the feasibility of a business concept. In broad terms, the focus of a feasibility study involves undertaking activities that may help determine whether one should go forward with an opportunity. The process of feasibility analysis involves identifying, evaluating and determining whether to exploit an opportunity. (It should be noted that a business plan would be developed after a feasibility analysis has determined
WebSpectra - Problems in NMR and IR Spectroscopy
This web site provides thirty beginning, twenty-nine intermediate, and sixteen advanced NMR structure analysis problems and their solutions. For every unknown a proton and a carbon spectrum are provided. Many of the more advanced problems contain COSY and DEPT spectra as well. A particularly useful feature of this site is that the user can zoom into spectral regions in all of the spectra.
An Eye on Food
This C and E News cover story from July 2005 introduces readers to the concept of quality control in food analysis for food safety with an emphasis on the application of near-infrared (NIR) and encoded photometric infrared (EP-IR) spectroscopy, Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT ICR MS), and microchip analysis. This article would be of potential use to faculty teaching any of these topics in their classroom.
Encylcopedia of Laser Physics and Technology
This is a comprehensive encyclopedia that provides a brief definition or explanation of a keyword term or principle of laser physics and technology. The site is organized so that one can click on an alphabet letter to get a listing of keywords or terms for searching. This site will be useful for novices in the field and anyone who needs a refresher or reminder of terms and definitions. Most useful to upper division undergrads, graduate students and practitioners who need to learn terms to naviga
GEM: Greener Education Materials for Chemists
