4.1 Earthquake intensity Why are some earthquakes more destructive than others? There are three main reasons: location (an earthquake with a focus under an ocean at a large distance from land, for example, is not usually destructive, unless it generates a tsunami), depth (shallower earthquakes can be more devastating), but, most importantly, the size of the earthquake. A straightforward way to measure the size of an earthquake is to look at the damage it caused. This is a measure of the strength of the g

Multi-layered Breathing Architectural Envelope
A multi layered breathing envelope is developed as a method of natural ventilation. The two main layers consist of mineral wool and air permeable concrete. The mineral wool works as a dynamic insulation and the permeable concrete as a heat recovery system with a high thermal mass for heat storage. The performance of the envelope is simulated and put through an optimization process. The impact of a design system on the architectural potential of Performance -based design was investigated.

It then turns to the rejection of Enlightenment political thinking. Lastly, it deals with the nature of, and justifications for, democratic politics, and their rela
Fruit Fly Surveillance
The International Space Station is an exciting location for scientists to conduct research. One exciting research topic that NASA is currently working is researching the effects of microgravity on the biological processes of fruit flies. Engineers have been working closely with scientists to design and build an optimal observation system for the fruit flies that will help them conduct the research they need. Explore the engineering process in this NASA episode of Spark 101.
Solving Equations - Pre-Algebra
The instructor demonstrates how to solve one-step, two-step, and multi-step equations. Several examples are modeled gradually getting more complex with each. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.
