"Ecology, Human Rights, and Large Dam Projects in South Asia"
Kathleen Morrison is Professor, Department of Anthropology; Director, Center for International Studies, The University of Chicago. There is little doubt that climate change, deforestation, erosion, and the unequal distribution of natural resources around the globe are of pressing importance everywhere, but these problems are perhaps most acute in Asia, home to 64 percent of the world’s population. Much of this population (1 and 1.3 billion, respectively) is concentrated in India and China, tw

A Grid Services Implementation for a Virtual Research Environment
In the past, virtual learning and research environments have typically been implemented as monolithic systems. Current research focuses on creating such environments from selected Grid and Web services. In this paper we describe the Virtual Orthopaedic European University, which was created to support Higher Surgical Trainees to provide evidence for their learning contracts by carrying out experiments and publishing the results. We use this environment as a case study for the re-implementation

Developing a Service Based Architecture in the Mobilearn E-Learning Project
Mobilearn is a project within the 5th Framework Programme of the European Union. Its objective is, to investigate the use of mobile technologies in different learning contexts. In order to achieve this, a service based software architecture is developed. In the following paper we describe the architectural approach taken within the Mobilearn project and some of the experiences gained. The author is a member of the Mobilearn Project Management Board. His institute maintains the Mobilearn Softwar

Towards Collaborative Learning via Shared Artefacts over the Grid
The Web is the most pervasive collaborative technology in widespread use today; and its use to support eLearning has been highly successful. There are many web-based Virtual Learning Environments such as WebCT, FirstClass, and BlackBoard as well as associated web-based Managed Learning Environments. In the future, the Grid promises to provide an extremely powerful infrastructure allowing both learners and teachers to collaborate in various learning contexts and to share learning materials, lea

Using PBL in Teaching Analytical Chemistry (The China Papers)
This paper from July 2003 taken from the China Papers documents the plans that one analytical chemistry professor from Hunan University has for implementing a problem-based learning approach in his undergraduate analytical chemistry course. The paper also provides a unique window into the perspectives of a Chinese educator and his perspectives on the challenges to adoption of PBL. As such the paper should be of great interest to analytical chemistry faculty particularly those interested in ado

Re-Evaluation and Recommendations for Redesign of the World Trade Center : Final Report
After the collapse of the World Trade Center, Towers 1 and 2, several questions were raised about the fire protection, egress and emergency evacuation systems. Full engineering services were provided to analyze the design of these systems to investigate what improvements can be made to keep the buildings standing longer, which could have saved more lives. Towers 1 and 2 each has a building footprint of an acre, stood 110 stories tall, housed 50,000 employees and an additional 26,000 visitors da

Physique et médecine : l'imagerie médicale (video)

L'imagerie médicale a sans aucun doute entraîné ces vingt dernières années une transformation radicale dans la façon d'aborder le diagnostic et le suivi thérapeutique. Un diagnostic de localisation d'une lésion cérébrale qui nécessitait un examen clinique long et minutieux par un neurologue expérimenté se fait aujourd'hui avec une précision millimétrique grâce au scanner ou à l'imagerie par résonance magnétique (IRM).
