How the Presidency Is Invading Your Home [New York Post, October 11, 2010] The Obama administration isn't satisfied giving the American public vast things we don't want — from stimulus packages to bailouts to ObamaCare. Witness its attempt to redesign home appliances. In the pipeline are dumb regulations for almost everything that plugs in or fires up in your home.

This course is designed to help students’ writing proficiency using the English language as a medium. The course will combine lectures and discussions about writing style with in-class writing workshops.
Methods and Algorithmics for system design
System design is the central topic of this course. We move beyond the methods developed in circuit design (although we shall have interest in those) and consider situations in which the functional behavior of a system is the first object under consideration. There will be an introduction to modeling methods that can be used in the context of system design, followed by a discussion of the main issues that are to be considered when one want to design a system that satisfies a number of relevant pe
System Identification and Parameter Estimation
This course is about non-parametric system identification based on estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and non-linear systems playes an important role. At the end of the course, a choice can be made out of three final assignments, for which recorded signals are available. The available demonstration programs have to be adapted in order to estimate proper transfer functions and model parameters. St
Intelligent User Experience Engineering
The course Intelligent User eXperience Engineering (IUXE) is given for the master programme 'Media and Knowledge Engineering' and for students from other master programmes. The aim is to achieve an understanding and practical experience of key principles, methods and theories in the area of intelligent user experience engineering. Study Goals: Knowledge of a basic, coherent approach for developing software systems in such a way that the systems' users can accomplish their goals effectively and e
Counseling Homosexual Students in the Secondary School Setting: Perceptions of Guidance Counselors
This study addresses counselor attitudes as they relate to addressing the needs of homosexual students in the secondary school setting. Homosexual students are often abused and/or neglected in the school setting based as the result of their perceived sexual orientation. The lack of attention provided to this population has cost districts significant money in punitive damage awards over the past ten years or so. While most view the school counselor as the likely staff member to provide interventi
University Faculty Expressions of Computer Self-Efficacy and Personal Attitudes Regarding the Viabil
Studies have shown that there is a direct link between a teacher’s attitude towards self-efficacy and effectiveness. Further studies have refined this idea of how expressions of computer self-efficacy impacts upon attitudes regarding the use of technology in the classroom and by inference, the effectiveness of such technology. The purpose of this mixed method design study was to examine the impact that such attitudes can have upon faculty teaching at institutions of higher education as they re

Looking at Learning ... Again, Part 2: Workshop 2. Mathematics: A Community Focus
With Dr. Marta Civil. As teachers, we often make assumptions about the knowledge children are exposed to at home. Sometimes it seems that we focus on only reading and writing,Dr. Civil contends that we need to look more carefully at the mathematical potential of the home and that it is essential that schools learn to be more flexible and knowledgeable about students home environments. See and hear from Dr. Civil, the teachers she works with, and a long-standing parent mathematics group, and fo

Overlapping worlds: an examination of macroregional archaeology
Archaeologists have long recognized the fact that long distance relationships existed in prehistoric societies. There have been many efforts to develop models for a satisfactory explanation for interactions and social change among groups. World Systems Theory, developed by Immanuel Wallerstein, is one such effort to examine mechanisms of inter-societal relationships and a determination of units of analysis for Pre-Columbian societies. To utilize this theory, archaeologists have made modification
Astronaut Mike Hopkins: Workout in Space 2
Astronaut Mike Hopkins, a lifelong athlete, worked closely with his strength and conditioning coach Mark Guilliams to develop these specially-designed workouts in orbit. Shown here, Hopkins is using the COLBERT treadmill and the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device to perform this challenging workout. (400 meter run and 20 minutes of pull-ups.)
Closing the economic achievement gap: a case study of a successful Kansas secondary school
In spite of efforts at the federal, state, and local levels, the achievement gap has persisted over time. Recent NCLB legislation has brought renewed attention to the achievement gap, forcing schools to address it. Despite the daunting task of mediating the impact of poverty, some schools have made substantial progress in narrowing the achievement gap with low-income students. This qualitative case study of one successful Kansas public secondary school has concluded the caring actions of teacher
Assessing the validity and reliability of a Piagetian-based paper pencil test
Piaget hypothesized that we understand the world through the use of cognitive frameworks. The strengths and limitations of these cognitive frameworks (or levels) both help and hinder the learning process. Comprehending individuals’ cognitive levels is essential for teachers to ensure that their students learn. Piaget developed a series of tasks to assess individuals’ cognitive levels (typically called "clinical interviews" which can only be conducted in a one-to-one fashion). Thus, a paper-a
