7.6 Producing synchroton radiation in a laboratory
Active galaxies provide a prime example of high energy processes operating in the Universe. This unit gives an overview of active galaxies, including the supermassive black holes that power the engines at their centres, and the emission processes by which we detect and study them. It also gives practice in mathematical techniques for analysing data and theoretical models.
The ice mission
The poles are warming up faster than any other region on the planet. Arctic sea ice is both thinning and receding and Antarctic ice shelves are either disintegrating or are at risk of collapse. A recent study suggests human activity is to blame.
Energy Puppet: An Ambient Awareness Interface for Home Energy Consumption
The Energy Puppet is an ambient display device that provides peripheral awareness of energy consumption for individual home appliances. The display produces different ?pet-like? behavioral reactions according to energy use patterns of the appliances to give homeowners an indication of their energy consumption status. The puppet would raise its ?arms? in victory to display normal consumption rate, or its ?eyes? would change color to red and ?roar? to warn the homeowners when the specific applianc
Law School Tour | University of St. Thomas
The University of St. Thomas School of Law has established itself not only as an outstanding law school but also as an exceptional place to be a law student. The School of Law was ranked the No. 1 law school in the country in 2005 for Best Quality of Life among students, according to Princeton Review's The Best 159 Law Schools. While a number of factors contribute to this quality of life at the School of Law, including our beautiful building and remarkable faculty, our students clearly are the b
(R&DA 12) Consistent, effective support, feedback and formal assessment of student teachers on block
This research identified critical issues in efforts to secure consistent, effective, support, feedback and formal assessment of student teachers on block placement. The report demonstrates systematic practices in case study research. Supported by TTA Research and Development Award
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the "particle model" can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.,The segment provides examples of probing questions about phenomenon to determine what
To develop as an independent, confident learner you will need to learn the study skills involved in reading articles, taking notes and summarising the information that you have obtained from an article. The unit explores the use of the Web as a resource for keeping up to date, looking in particular at how to assess material available online.

"The Experimental Man: Cutting-Edge Scientific Research and Implications for Personalized Medicine" David Ewing Duncan - chief correspondent for public radio's BioTech Nation, contributor to NPR's Morning Edition, author, and director of UC Berkeley's Center for Life Science Policy - gives a fascinating talk on his journey to "physical self-discovery" to see what effects medical technologies will have on individuals, families, and cultures.
When Larry Eigner arrived in this world "palsied from a hard birth" the accepted view was that the severity of his injury made him uneducable. An inspired bar-mitzvah gift of a 1940 Royal portable typewriter opened a pathway to his becoming a poet. This event celebrates the publication in four folio volumes of the Collected Poems of Larry Eigner. POETS/SPEAKERS. Robert Grenier, Lyn Hejinian, Richard Eigner, Rebecca Gaydos, Kit Robinson, Michael Davidson, George Hart, Albert Gelpi, Hillary Grav
Transportation systems, as we know them today, will simply not sustain the worlds’ growing population. Imagine a projected population of nine billion individuals. If this future population had mobility patterns like drivers in the United States, there would be a staggering 7.6 billion motor vehicles, using 440 million barre
Whether you're a professional musician, play music with your friends on the weekends or just like to listen to CDs, music technology affects your life. In this unit, you will learn some of the basics of music technology, starting with what sound is, how it is created and how it travels.
'Games and learning' is a Furturelab handbook that is readily and freely available as a PDF file. It reports upon the recent and current use of game-based resources. The key findings, that have the most impact upon teacher training, are the recommendations for educators to look beyond the game play to the rationale in terms of learning outcomes, opportunities and motivations. The report acknowledges and celebrates the effective use of computer-based games in a wide range of contexts through case
The overall purpose of this textbook is to survey the major events of modern Chinese and Japanese history. Sometimes this survey takes the form of an old-fashioned, straightforward narrative. Whenever possible, however, the author seeks to examine history through topics that rarely receive much attention in standard textbooks. Furthermore, many of the topics discussed in subsequent chapters shed light on matters of broad significance to the study of human affairs.
Customer-driven product customization and continued demand for cost and time savings have generated a renewed interest in agile manufacturing based on improvements on Rapid Prototyping (RP) technologies. The advantages of RP technologies are: 1. ability to shorten the product design and development time, 2.) suitability for automation and decrease in the level of human intervention, 3.) ability to build many geometrically complex shapes. A shift from â prototypingâ to â manufacturingâ
This subject follows a course of readings in lyric poetry in the English language, tracing the main lines of descent through literary periods from the Renaissance to the modern period and concentrating mostly on English rather than American examples.
This paper describes the experiences of learning and working in groups on the Computer Science studies at Virtual Campus of the Open University of Catalunya. Two communities have used a web based shared workspace tool to a) coordinate the task of tutors of a computer architecture course, and b) a problem based collaborative learning project with software engineering students. These experiences have lead to the design of WWG: a distributed infrastructure for distance learning in groups at Interne
