La peinture animée depuis Emile Reynaud

En 1880 avec son Praxinoscope à projection, Emile Reynaud parvient à coupler la synthèse graphique du mouvement avec la lanterne magique, créant une nouvelle technique de peinture animée lumineuse, distincte des formes antérieures de projection et qui précède le cinéma photographique. Inventeur et artiste accompli, il crée ensuite le jeu expressif des personnages peints et animés dans ses Pantomimes Lumineuses, puis la Photo Peinture animée. De toutes ces inventions on peut retro

The mechanisms of boiling (video)

Boiling is an effective way to remove heat. It is used as cooling medium in many industrial power such as power plants. The mechanisms governing the different regimes occurring during the boiling of a liquid usually are complex and often intertwined. It is important to know them and identify them in the laboratory. In particular, the detailed understanding of the boiling crisis, well known and feared for the damage that can result in practice is of primary importance. (For the boiling of a s

Adjunct Professor Steven Lewis presents: Value for money in health care
Adjunct Professor Steven Lewis gives this public lecture entitled 'Value for money in health care: Why it's so hard to achieve and what to do about it' at The Australian National University on 11 November 2010. There is abundant evidence that in conventional economic terms, health care in prosperous nations delivers very little additional benefit at the margins of spending. This presentation explores the reasons why diminishing marginal returns are the norm in health care. It examines how scie

3.6 Features of speech: dysfluency

Another of the differences between conversation and writing is sometimes referred to as dysfluency. This is the use of hesitators (sounds such as erm, urn), pauses and repetitions which reflect the difficulty of mental planning at speed. We can see all three of these dysfluencies in the next example.

That's a very good – er very good precaution to take, yes.

4.2 Structure and agency in the explanation of the crime problem

The social sciences are both united and divided by the debate over structure and agency. That debate turns on the degree to which people are either free to act as they choose or are constrained by forces beyond their control and possibly beyond their perceptions.

Structural explanations of human behaviour argue that an unrestrained freedom of action is an illusion. Human behaviour is neither random nor purely self-determined. There is always a range of constraints, rules, pressures, es

4.1 Exploring the claims about crime

The claims of the common-sense story of crime that we unearthed in Section 3 were, broadly speaking, about the start of the story (how things were then) and the end of the story (how things are now). But most stories have a middle. A middle that gets you from the beginning to the end, that explains how one state of affairs is transformed into another. The former claims are primarily descriptive. The claim in the middle would be explanatory. It would need to address questions lik

3.4 Interpreting the crime problem

The Whole City, My Lord, is alarm'd and uneasy. Wickedness has got such a Head, and the Robbers and Insolence of the Night are such that the citizens are no longer secure within their own Walls or safe even in passing their Streets, but are robbed, insulted, and abused, even at their own Doors … The citizens are oppressed by Rapin and Violence.

3.3 Quantitative and qualitative evidence

The Tables above provide official quantitative evidence: evidence, data or information which is expressed in numerical terms. On the face of it, this clearly shows that recorded crime increased significantly throughout the twentieth century, albeit with some ‘dips’ in recent years. Common sense is confirmed. But there are problems with these data. Remember, we are looking here at crimes recorded by the police. Do you think that all crimes are recorded? There might be different

3.2 Counting the crime problem

What kind of evidence would support the claims of the common-sense narrative? Where would it come from and where would you find it? Most social scientists would start with the people who actually spend their time counting these things – governments. Government agencies of all kinds spend a great deal of time and money producing official statistics, recording crime rates, conviction rates, the size of prison populations, and so on.

2.1 Social attitudes towards crime

Crime, then, is a social construction. We had to break down the definition of crime and the process of recognising crimes to explore that. This is an analytical approach to the issue, which simply means unpacking an idea or a process into its separate components so that we can examine them more closely. But most of the time we don't think about crime analytically. We think about it as a narrative, as a story.

At a personal level we may tell the story, over a drink, of our
