March on Washington
While campaigning for the White House in 1960, John F. Kennedy made the pledge that civil rights would take center stage during his presidency. Kennedy guaranteed that discriminatory practices in housing would be done away with at the start of his term "with a stroke of a pen." Once in office, the results of his pledge were much less dramatic. In fact, the process took nearly two years to complete; all the while civil rights groups were sending pens to the White House to protest Kennedy's inacti

E-Portfolio Toolkit - Booklet
This E-Portfolio Toolkit is based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University. We use an E-Portfolio to assess our students on their period abroad because we think it encourages them to fully engage with culture(s) and language of the target country and to reflect on the resulting cultural and linguistic development. As part of our project, we have also developed a set of learning activities and materials,
Urban Sprawl Modelling: Combining Models to Make Decision
Urban sprawl is frequently associated with the idea of an unsuitable development, leading to increasing economic, social and environmental problems. Moreover, its control is difficult because multiple patterns (concerning numerous traditional urban planning fields) overlap. In order to understand the sprawl process and to manage its consequences, it must be simplified. The construction of a decision making tool appears then interesting. The GIS-based tool presented here is being developed incoll

Design Gene App for Android
'This is the tile-matching game inspired from famous game, Tetris and genetic code in biology.In molecular biology and genetics, the linking between two nitrogenous bases on opposite complementary DNA or certain types of RNA strands that are connected via hydrogen bonds is called a base pair. In DNA base pairing, adenine (A) forms a base pair with thymine (T) and guanine (G) forms a base pair with cytosine (C).So, this pairing rule is the base of the game rule, that is, block A must match with T

Design Tool Integration: Model Flexibility for the Building Profession
The development of ICAtect, as discussed in the Building Systems Automation and Integration Symposium of 1991, provides a way of integrating simulation tools through a common building model. However, ICAtect is only a small step towards the ultimate goal of total integration and automation of the building design process. In this paper we investigate the next steps on the path toward integration. We examine how models structured to capture the physical attributes of the building, as required by s
