Buildings with an Attitude
In order to achieve interactive architecture it is necessary to consider more than the technological components of sensors, controllers, and actuators. The interaction can be focused to different interaction activities: instructing, conversing, manipulating, and exploring (we propose to call this the interaction view). Additionally, the purpose of the building may range from performing, sustaining, servicing, symbolising, to entertaining (we propose to call this the world view). Combined, the in

6.5 Market experience

It is some 20 years since the Topper project was conceived by Peter Bean, Technical Director of Rolinx and Ian Proctor, the designer of the original GRP boat. Sales initially were excellent, especially to sailing schools and clubs where there was much demand for a small, light and very safe sailing boat for children.

Prof. Nick Childs - 'History of Brass Bands - The Golden Period'
The repertoire played by bands has altered radically over many years. However, commissioning bodies have always been governed by a desire to attract the leading mainstream composers of the day to write original material for the medium. The so-called 'Golden Period', spanning the period between the Great Depression and the Second World War, encapsulates this ambition at its most successful. A sequence of seminal works, by John Ireland, Gustav Holst, Granville Bantock, Herbert Howells, and Sir

The Attack on Fort Sumter - Civil War
The battle is explained in this slide show video and how the South stole the very weapons that were used to attack the Fort. Lincoln's decision explained and a great quote is used that foreshadows his ultimate fate as a president. The video does not have an ending to the battle so they may need to have it explained. Using Google Earth to help show the Fort would be a good idea, too.
