Beaupre Hall, Outwell, Norfolk. Beaupre Hall was built by Nicholas de Beaupre in around 1500, and the gatehouse was added in about 1525. The house was enlarged towards the end of the 16th century, and altered during the 18th century, creating what the architectural historian Christopher Hussey described in 1923 as a '€˜rambling red brick pile'€™ that had been decay

Conclusion

When we read about genetics and the future of medicine, we should also think about genetics and the future of health services that have to deliver medical care. The advent of predictive medicine, based on more detailed DNA profiling of individual genotypes using technologies like gene chips, rather than screening for one gene at a time, may shift the relationship between doctor and patient. People will be seeking advice on how to manage their susceptibilities or genetic risks, rather than loo

A run time exchange of component information between CAD and object models: A standard interface
Integrated computer aided design could only occur in engineering once CAD systems could represent physical features and components rather than graphical primitives. In most dedicated CAD systems, the knowledge of a complete component exists only for the duration of each drawing command and the data stored in the database is simply a set of graphic primitives. This paper proposes an approach for real time information transfer fr

4.2 When and where was the telephone invented?

I'd read in the past that the telephone was invented in 1876 by Alexander Graham Bell. However when I looked more closely at the history it turns out that the idea had been ‘in the air’ for almost half a century.

The distance communication technology of the time, the telegraph, was based on sending pulses of electricity along a wire to control an electromagnet at the receiving end. The sender completed an electric circuit by pressing a key and the receiver's electromagnet controlled

From the World Bank to the World Social Forum, the virtues of participation are extolled: From its capacity to "deepen democracy" to its ability to improve governance, there is no shortage to the benefits it can bring. While it is clear that participation cannot possibly "do" all that is claimed, it is also clear that citizen participation cannot be dismissed, and th
