The Role of Europe in a Multilateral World - November 19, 2009
In his lecture, “The Role of Europe in a Multilateral World,” Romano Prodi will examine the benefits and challenges presented by the European Union’s expansion. Although the enlargement of the union has had significant impact on the democratic transition in eastern Europe and has extended European markets, there is no unanimity on issues of security, energy, and foreign affairs. Prodi maintains that if the EU aims to play a key role on the world’s political stage, it will need to develop
Is an Eclipse Described in Homer's Odyssey? – November 30, 2009
Plutarch and Heraclitus believed that a certain passage in the 20th book of The Odyssey (“Theoclymenus’s prophecy”) was a poetic description of a total solar eclipse. In the late 1920s Schoch and Neugebauer computed that the solar eclipse of 16 April 1178 B.C.E. was total over the Ionian Islands and was the only suitable eclipse in more than a century to agree with classical estimates of the decade-earlier sack of Troy around 1192–1184 B.C.E. However, much skepticism remains about whethe
The Early Years Transition and Special Educational Needs (EYTSEN) Project: Technical Paper 1 - Speci
The Early Years Transitions and Special Educational Needs (EYTSEN) project builds on the work of the Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) project, a major longitudinal study of a national sample of young children’s progress and development through pre-school and into primary school until the end of Key Stage 1 (age 3+ to 7 years) (Sylva et al., 1999). Both the EPPE and EYTSEN research studies are funded by the DfES. The EYTSEN study explores evidence of possible special educatio
Technical Paper 10 - The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Intensive Case
Technical Paper 10 - Intensive study of selected centres. ISBN : 085473 601 8 In Technical Paper 10, data from 12 effective pre-school centres, reflecting good child outcomes, (cognitive and/or social behavioural) have been analysed to reveal a unique 'story' for each centre. The associated Researching Effective Pedagogy in the Early Years (REPEY, Siraj-Blatchford et al DfES Research Report 356) project enabled the addition of two reception classes to the 12 EPPE cases (i.e. 14 case study centre
The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Technical Paper 5 - Characteristics
This paper reports on interviews conducted with the managers of the EPPE pre-school centres. This interview was designed to provide information likely to help differentiate effectiveness in pre-school settings by contextualising information from observational profiles (reported in Technical Paper 6 in this series), other interviews with centre managers (reported in Technical Paper 3) and case studies (reported in Technical Paper 10). The paper reports on wide differences in provision across the

Finite element simulation of 3D drilling in unidirectional CFRP composite
Drilling is probably the most important conventional mechanical process and it is the most widely used machining operations. Prediction of cutting forces for any set of cutting parameters is essential in optimal design and manufacturing of products. It has been predicted that most of the problems associated with hole making operation, such as drilling, can be attributed to the force generated during cutting operation. In addition, prediction of force helps in design and evaluation of cutting too

Transportation, the Built Environment and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Developing Cities
It seems that income and travel are inextricably linked. As communities gain wealth and prosperity, their travel footprint increases. While this relationship affords benefits to those in developed nations, it is not scalable. Global population is projected to increase by nearly 2 billion people by 2030. If this newly adde
Environmental Impacts of Aviation
Knowing more about the environmental impacts of aviation is increasingly essential, but according to
Ian Waitz, it is also an area where uncertainties abound. One thing we know for sure is that the airplanes developed today will be flying for next 30 years, as the fleet dynamics are very stable, due to the extraordinary cos

Canine Cougar Fan is Ready For Apple Cup 2010
PULLMAN, Wash. -- The rows and rows of RVs that arrive in Pullman for Cougar football games bring the usual necessities; food, drinks, and Cougar Pride. But one RV brings something a bit different, a dog that dislikes the "Dawgs". Mark Showalter, a Washington State University alumnus, has brought his appropriately named lab "Butch" to tailgating over the years. What makes Butch even more special is his loathing for anything related to the school of purple and gold. He dislikes the school so
Job Interviews is one of several Futures workbooks which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. Interviews are still the most commonly used method for assessing a person’s suitability for a job. In the UK 99 per cent of employers use selection interviews to recruit n
