Producing the Chelsea Flower Show - Karen Arrand
The woman who was responsible for getting the Chelsea Flower Show onto the television for the BBC talks to Coventry Conversations organiser, John Mair. The Chelsea Flower Show is a vital part of the English summer for those fortunate enough to visit the show but to those who watch it on the small screen, it has to capture the spectacle of the event live for 10 hours each year. Karen Arrand was the BBC producer responsible for bringing the show into our living rooms in 2000 to 2003. Karen took
Collaboration and Problem Solving in Distributed Collaborative Learning
Ethnomethodology and Conversation Analysis are utilised as resources for analysing distributed collaborative learning. Thematically we are interested in how a group of students manage their task, how they keep a joint focus, and how technology features in their activity. We present and analyse extracts of data from a group collaborating in a groupware system called TeamWave Workplace. We conclude that in collaborative problem solving the interpretation of the task and the problem solving process
This Flash animation provides a tour of the history of the universe, the solar system, and Earth. Moving the slider allows viewers to progress from the Big Bang, almost 14 billion years ago, to the beginnings of life on Earth in the Proterozoic era, through the age of the dinosaurs and finally to the time of Homo sapiens. When the slider stops moving, animations and text appear, highlighting important events. Other animations accompany the time scale and show the movements of the continents, the
Fundamentals of Business Analysis
This course is designed to give people new to the business analyst role or those who supervise business analysts a basic understanding of the functions and business impact of this role. The course provides a special focus on business analysis functions as they relate to the development of information technology solutions and the business analysis project life cycle. Course topics include the role of the business analyst, gathering and documenting user requirements, modeling the business, busines
Introduction to Project Management
This module is the introduction to the University Extension online course, Introduction to Project Management. Project management has been proven to be the most effective method of delivering products within cost, schedule, and resource constraints. This intensive and hands-on course gives you the skills to ensure your projects are completed on time and on budget while giving the user the product they expect. You will gain a strong working knowledge of the basics of project management and be abl
Design of a View-Based DSS For Location Planning
This paper describes the design of a DSS for locating facility networks. The proposed DSS is based on the principle of dynamic data definitions. The declarative and procedural forms of knowledge involved are identified by a logical analysis of planning tasks. The DSS supports an iterating process of adjusting and evaluating plan options. A flexible and interactive problem solving environment is achieved by means of a user defined set of views that captures both forms of knowledge. Each view desc
As cast white cast iron
An example of a white cast iron, so named due to its relatively low carbon content, which means that the carbon present is in the form of cementite. Upon cooling the melt initially forms austenite dendrites and ledeburite. The dendrites then transform to pearlite, and the ledeburite to ferrite and cementite.
Representation and Delivery of City Models
City modelling has a considerable range of potential applications and because of this, as a field of research has attracted a great deal of attention over recent years. Here we reflect on work already reported by the authors in this area, describe some more recent work on improving the system that had been developed and show an example of how city modelling is being applied in practice as a planning tool in the UK.
From 2D Base Map To 3D City Model
Since 1997 Helsinki City Survey Division has proceeded in experimenting and in developing the methods for converting and supplementing current digital 2D base maps in the scale 1:500 to a 3D city model. Actually since 1986 project areas have been produced in 3D for city planning and construction projects, but working with the whole map database started in 1997 because of customer demands and competitive 3D projects. 3D map database needs new data modelling and structures, map update processes ne
This applet from Statistical Java allows the user to generate bivariate data for analysis with simple linear regression. The page describes the equations used to generate the data and estimate the regression lines.
Professional Associations & Learned Societies in Biomedical Informatics

UVA Astronomy Professor Ed Murphy with the top 8 space stories of 2008
Ed Murphy is a professor of astronomer at the University of Virginia, and he joined Coy Barefoot on the January 7, 2009 edition of the WINA�s �Charlottesville�Right Now!� to review the top space stories from the previous year.
Pearlitic malleable cast iron
A cast iron with a relatively low carbon content. Upon cooling the austenite transforms to pearlite at the eutectoid temperature, leaving a microstructure of pearlite and graphite.
Evolution of Computer Aided Design: Three Generations of CAD
This paper describes the three generations of CAD systems. The first generation of (primarily analytical) computer programmes really aided designing. These programmes were the tools for finding a functional solution in different areas of designing, from flat plans to the space organisation of a hospital. One of the shortcomings of these programmes was the lack of graphic interface. With time, however, this kind of interface was developed. As a result of this second generation of CAD systems the
CAFE: Composition for Architects - Forms and Emotions
In the architectural creation process there has always been an inclination to improve the methods of designing in the way of ,,objectivization" of designing process. Objectivization which would explain why we do design in this way and not the other. In spite of the trend to the total objectivization (Vitruvius, Alberti, Palladio), the results appeared to be still subjective, i.e. they included methods of designing typical of the one and only architect. This fact made them completely useless in t

Modeling architectural design objectives in physically based space planning
Physically based space planning is a means for automating the conceptual design process by applying the physics of motion to space plan elements. This methodology provides for a responsive design process, which allows a designer to easily make decisions whose consequences immediately propagate throughout the design. It combines the speed of automated design methods with the flexibility of manual design methods, while adding a highly interactive quality and a sense of collaboration with the desig
Urbamedia - Development of an urban database of fragments of some Argentinian and Latin-American cit
The proposal of "Urbamedia" is to undertake the development of 3D virtual and interactive models of historical areas of Latin-American cities. The selected zone is the "Mayo Avenue" including the "Mayo Square", an historical place of the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina; this project is financed by the National Agency of Scientific and Technological Development of Argentina and the University of Buenos Aires.We are presenting the first experimental model of the "Mayo Square" that has been dev
