Ubiquitous Training of Visual-Spatial Skills: On the Development of Mobile Applications Using Handhe
This research project seeks to develop m-learning applications that provide training in visual-spatial skills using wireless handheld mobile devices (e.g. PDAs and cellular phones). The paper acknowledges the role of visual-spatial competence as fundamental in science and most creative endeavors, including its critical role in architectural design. It also recognizes that there is a substantial amount of anecdotal evidence suggesting that undergraduate students in architecture have serious limit

Environments and Experiments
Environments are effected by the organisms that live in them. An environment is everything that surrounds and influences an organism. An environmental factor is one part of an environment-it can be living or nonliving.
SciCafe: Into the Abyss - New Frontiers in Deep Sea Exploration
One of the last great areas of exploration on Earth is the deep sea, where new species are discovered on nearly every adventure into its depths. In this SciCafe, join Museum Curator John Sparks and Research Associates David Gruber (CUNY) and Vincent Pieribone (John B. Pierce Laboratory - Yale) as they discuss their research on fish biofluorescence in the deep sea, and the emerging technologies - like the Exosuit - that surround this last pristine frontier. This SciCafe took place at the Museum
Bill Buxton and Jeff Han - Part 1 of 4 | Microsoft Research Luminaries Recently I wondered what it would be like to get Bill Buxton from Microsoft Research and Jeff Han from Office together to talk about technology. Bill's pioneering work in human-computer interaction helped build the foundation of ubiquitous computing. A generation later Jeff Han helped to introduce the world to multitouch design and founded <

Graduate Skills is one of the series of 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. The aim of this workbook is to introduce you to the concept of graduate job skills and enterprise, looking at which career path you decides to follow. It’s not j
Basics of Geography: Climate
Discusses what makes up geography; land, water, people and their lives and how land and water affect them. Geography also includes climate. Climate is the weather pattern in a region of the world over a long period of time. One of the major factors affecting our climate is the Sun. The way the Earth moves around the Sun affects the climate. This video discusses rotation, revolution, year, axis, hemisphere, latitude, lines of latitude, and equator. This video discusses what causes the different c

Rachmaninov - Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor, Part 2
In this interpretation of Rachmaninov's Piano Concert No. 2 in C Minor, Alexis Weissenberg is the pianist and the late Herbert von Karajan is the conductor.
Strains of the popular song, "All By Myself," are clearly recognizable in this movement. Eric Carmen has acknowledged that he was greatly influenced by it.
Identification of image transformation models
The selection of the appropriate transformation for aligning two images is anestimation problem: the parameters of the transformation for aligning two imagesare estimated from data such as the location of corresponding points in twoimages. In many cases, however, the appropriate equations for aligning twoimages may not be known: more than one transformation model may be areasonable candidate. Identifying the true transformation is important because it willlead to a more accurate alignment. This

Pioneering a new field: Macrosystems Ecology
Big data is changing the field of ecology. The shift is dramatic enough to warrant the creation of an entirely new field: macrosystems ecology. Patricia Soranno, MSU professor of fisheries and wildlife, is one of the scientists helping define it. Video illustration by MSU senior Anzar Abbas.
