Introduction

This course interrogates the idea of a globalised world by showing how inequalities in access to material wealth and expectations of lifestyle, which have been created historically between the US and Mexico, produces border tensions as Mexicans seek entry to the US to do jobs that resident American citizens will not undertake for the wages offered. It is particularly relevant currently in the context of debates about free trade and movement of workforce to where they could find work, and tha

In such circumstances, people have been forced to consider the sea and brackish underground aquifers as water sources. To make these saline waters potable, the salt has first to be

World's first profiler for Windows Phone 7

Performance of Windows Phone 7 apps are often vastly different on the emulator than on the actual device. Many things - I/O, networking, libraries, floating point math etc - are even different from what we're used to for full desktop .NET apps. For instance, on some devices floating point math is much faster than integer math, unlike for desktop apps. That makes it rather hard to guess your WP7 app's performance bottlenecks, and some "optimizations" can actually slow things down on
