The Daily's Double Shot: 05/10/2014
In this episode of The Daily's Double Shot, we go further in depth with the app Tinder and find out how students on campus are actually using it. Then, the obscure sports weekly club hosts a massive game of glow-in-the-dark capture the flag on campus. In this edition of film focus, John reviews the Amazing Spiderman 2. Then we explore this years' Afro-Caribbean night. Up next, the band Taco Cat releases its own flavor of ice cream at bluebird cafÃ©. Finally, reporter Annie Wilson investigates in

1. A coordinate system provides a systematic means of specifying the position of a particle. A system in one dimension involves choosing an origin and a positive direction in which values of the position coordinate increase. Values of the position coordinate are positive or negative numbers multiplied by an appropriate unit of length, usually the SI unit of length, the metre (m).

2. The movement of a particle along a line can be described graphically by plotting values of the particle's

In this unit you will be building on your previous study and experience of â€˜working with othersâ€™. Using the notion of â€˜teamworkâ€™, you will be asked to think specifically about the values and beliefs underpinning the following three aspects of practice:

• developing working relationships with other professionals;

• sharing information and skills with other professionals;

• working in cooperation with other professionals.<

The versatility of mammals is a central theme of the â€˜Studying mammalsâ€™ series of units, but surely no environment has tested that versatility as much as the rivers and oceans of the world. Mammals are essentially a terrestrial group of animals, but three major groups have independently adopted an aquatic way of life. In moving to the water, aquatic mammals have had to survive, feed and reproduce using a set of biological characteristics that evolved in association with life on land. This

We shall discuss monomeric G proteins (also called small G proteins or small GTPases) separately from the trimeric G proteins for three reasons: their upstream activators are different, they tend to have different target proteins, and they commonly operate within different signalling pathways.

• What structural features and activities do monomeri

Where the best way, or, indeed, any way, of tackling a problem is not obvious, there are a number of tools and techniques which can be useful to stimulate ideas and different ways of thinking:

• reasoning: reaching conclusions or deciding on paths of action by means-end analysis or critical-path analysis;

• matching: recognising similarities with other situations, drawing analogies, adapting solutions that have worked or s

Very few people study or work in complete isolation. Some courses now set projects and assignments that need to be completed in pairs or groups, either face-to-face or using e-conferencing. Even if your course does not formally require you to do this, working with others is an important part of your skills portfolio. Most jobs require you to work as part of a team, and employers value individuals who can demonstrate this.

In working on a work project or an assignment with others â€“ in

There is a huge proliferation of neurons in early life. Even whilst that proliferation continues, some cells, e.g. neuroblasts, stop being able to divide. At some later stage the proliferation itself virtually ceases. It follows that cells switch from being able to divide, to being unable to divide, and that they switch at the appropriate time: the process of cell proliferation is controlled. The details of the control of proliferation are not yet understood and are not considered here. But o

This unit is about the very basic study skills of reading and taking notes. You will be asked to think about how you currently read and then be introduced to a some techniques that may help you to alter the way you read according to the material you are studying. In the second section you will be asked to look at some useful techniques for note taking and how you may apply them to the notes you make.

Intel Galileo V2 and You

Michael Crump, official Coding4Fun Friend, recently (well in February, that's kind of recent) posted a great getting started guide on one of our favorite shiny topics, Windows IoT and the Intel Galileo V2. What's changeling for some is that that device is currently Win32/C++.

I know I would have a steep learning curve to try to get going with that device, so it's a good thing that Michael stepped up and help all of us up that hill...
