Why Social Media Is Luxury's Best Friend
Without embracing social media, luxury brands risk being shut out of conversations about their products. Here are three effective ways to go social.
Interpret an engineering drawing
There is not a lot of space on a drawing so symbols and abbreviations are used instead of text. To find the meaning of a symbol or abbreviation, use the Australian Standard AS 1100.101-1992. It defines the general principles for technical drawing and shows tables of symbols and abbreviations and their meanings. Lines on a drawing also must conform to rules, eg, for visible outlines, hidden outlines, and dimension lines.
1.9 Distance between points in three-dimensional Euclidean space
Attempts to answer problems in areas as diverse as science, technology and economics involve solving simultaneous linear equations. In this unit we look at some of the equations that represent points, lines and planes in mathematics. We explore concepts such as Euclidean space, vectors, dot products and conics.
Together, We Can Stop the Flu PSA

6.241 Dynamic Systems & Control (MIT)
6.241 examines linear, discrete- and continuous-time, and multi-input-output systems in control and related areas. Least squares and matrix perturbation problems are considered. Topics covered include: state-space models, modes, stability, controllability, observability, transfer function matrices, poles and zeros, minimality, internal stability of interconnected systems, feedback compensators, state feedback, optimal regulation, observers, observer-based compensators, measures of control p

TALAT Lecture 2703: Construction and Dynamic Testing of Aluminium Nodes
This lecture demonstrates, how optimum design and fabrication of extruded space frame members joined by welding can lead to significant weight savings, high service life and economy under fatigue loading conditions. Basic knowledge of structural engineering, extrusion design, welding and fatigue; and some familiarity with TALAT lectures no. 1302, 1501, 2200, 2302 and 2400 is assumed.
A first course in Mathematics for Physics students. Contains lecture notes, examples, ... as well as the files used to create these resources. Discusses: 1-Vectors in 2-space and 3-space; 2-Differentiation; 3- Integration; 4- Applications of Integration and 5- Differential Equations.
Qauntum Mechanics I (web)
This is a first course in quantum Mechanics. Discusses Schroedinger equation, tunnelling through barriers, time dependence and some aspects of 3D problems. Contains detailed Notes (web and pdf), exercises, figures with sources, etc. etc.

Women in Maths - Lisa Mott
In August 2014 Maryam Mirzakhani, a professor at Stanford University, became the first woman to win the Fields Medal for achievements in mathematics, a medal comparable in prestige to a Nobel Prize, first awarded in 1936. Although around 40% of the UK undergraduates in mathematics are women, there is a well-documented leaking pipeline when it comes to women choosing to do a PhD and then choosing an academic career path. The proportion of women mathematicians declines rapidly the higher one loo
College Students, Social Media, and the Self
The following presentation is from my PhD dissertation proposal hearing. It outlines my study which attempts to inform an understanding of this generation of traditionally aged college students and their relationship with digital and social technologies. Specifically, it aims to understand how college students
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Autumn semester 2009 Infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The body fights infection through the functions of the immune system, whose power has been harnessed by the development of vaccination (immunisation). Suitable for study at: Undergraduate levels 1 and 2. Dr Ian Todd, School of Molecular Medical Sciences Dr Ian Todd is Associate Professor & Reader in Cellular Immunopatho
Let the Central Bankers Inflate
Worries about central banks trying to create inflation are overblown.
Multidimensional poverty and inclusive growth in India: An analysis using growth elasticities
The talk explores why India has higher economic growth than neighbours, growth in MPI is has been much slower by examining three types of inclusiveness and elasticities to study responsiveness
Introduction to Philosophy II
This course is designed as a "topics-based" introduction to philosophy. What this means is that instead of working through the history of philosophy focusing on great historical figures and their views on different topics, we will focus on great philosophical topics and look at what historical and contemporary writers have said about them. Topics to be addressed will include the existence of God, the relation between the mind and the body, human freedom, and the foundations of morality.
Painting with Negative Space and Silhouettes
Here's another technique. A great number of people find it easier to see or find images in shapes rather than from lines. When drawing from line the mind often gets caught up in symbols, whereas when focusing on contour or silhouettes it does not. For this reason it's worthwhile to paint the space around a person or object. (6:36)
Quantum Mechanics I
A set of resources (lecture notes, exercises and figures) linked to a second year course in quantum mechanics. Both processed files (html/xhtml/pdf) and the raw inputs are provided, together with scripts to convert the material. Part of the Skills for Scientists project.

TALAT Lecture 1253: Creep
This lecture constitutes an introduction to creep and to the creep response of aluminium and its alloys. It provides basic information on creep and its mechanisms; it gives a description of the more extensively used mathematical relations among creep variables (time, stress and temperature); it illustrates the creep response of pure Aluminium and of Al-Mg alloys; it provides a synthesis of the information available in the literature on the creep behaviour of a number of new alloys and composites
