5.4 Devolution in Northern Ireland: a particular case

Devolution in Northern Ireland has been an integral part of the post-1994 peace process, which aims to share power between the two divergent communities, the Unionist-Protestant majority and the Republican-Catholic minority. All-party talks, chaired by the former US Senator George Mitchell, followed the 1997 renewal of a paramilitary ceasefire. The decommissioning of arms by paramilitary groups was made a condition of the talks, but no specific date for its accomplishment was ever given. Thi

(Torque Solution) Acceleration of a Wheel descending on a Rope
A rope is wrapped around a bicycle wheel with a rotational inertia of 0.68MR^2. The wheel is released from rest and allowed to descend without slipping as the rope unwinds from the wheel. In terms of g, determine the acceleration of the wheel as it descends. Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 Topic.

Feudal System
This nine minute video is about the importance of land and its power. The Feudal System was the "power pyramid" of the Medieval age. The Kings were the ones with Power aka land.  People were afraid of the Viking and so they turned to the King for protection in these dangerous times. Students should know what a monarchy is to provide more background to this lecture.

1.7 Summary of Section 1 and questions

  • Converging lenses or mirrors cause parallel beams of light to be brought to a focus at the focal point, situated at a distance of one focal length beyond the lens or one focal length in front of the mirror. Diverging lenses or mirrors cause parallel beams of light to diverge as if emanating from the focal point of the lens or mirror. Light paths are reversible, so a converging lens or mirror may also act as a collimator and

2 A day in the life of a hospital ward

In 1996, we visited Ward 29, one of two gastroenterology wards in the medical unit, and recorded the views of patients and staff. The ward has 24 beds. Its patients were women and men, across a wide age range, suffering from digestive disorders – for example, stomach ulcers, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, cancers of the digestive system or problems with liver function brought on by alcohol abuse. Because it was winter the ward had more elderly people than it would have at other times

2.3.3 Torus

Let us now return to the cylinder we obtained in Figure 27. What happens if we bend it around and glue the two ends? Now, continuing with our idea of identifying edges of our original rectangle, we want to bend the cylinder round and glue its ends in such a way that the points A and B are identified. Furthermore, bending

4.11.1 Procedural ultra vires

This is where the enabling Act sets out the procedural rules to be followed by the body which has been given the delegated power. The court can find the delegated legislation to be ultra vires and void if these rules were not followed.

4.1 Introduction

The 1970s marked a period in which the cessation of the ‘normal’ period of full-time employment at 60 or 65 years had become the accepted orthodoxy. The personal lives of older people had thus become constituted outside the domain of paid employment and within the arena of public and private welfare. As we illustrated in the preceding section, pensions, organised around fixed ages of retirement based on chronological measurements of age, played a crucial role in this process. Further, as

5.9 Membrane filtration

Membrane filtration is a process whereby particles smaller than about 10−2 mm (which can pass through sand filters) are removed using synthetic polymeric membranes and a high pressure. The membrane effectively acts as a sieve.

It is increasingly becoming popular as an advanced treatment process for water (especially for removal of Cryptosporidium) and wastewater (where water reuse takes place), and various possibilities are:

4.3 PZT

The above requirements lead us to a range of ceramic materials with crystalline structure. One such material is lead zirconate titanate (PZT), which is an oxide alloy of lead, zirconium and titanium. It is often used in a specific composition (sometimes with additives) in order to achieve a particular crystal structure and the desired piezoelectric response. Author(s): The Open University

2.1 Issues of responsibility

The aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami saw an unprecedented aid effort to assist the affected regions. In the early days after the disaster, pledges of financial assistance from overseas governments were often outstripped by the generosity of their own populaces. This was a case when ordinary people around the world saw and were moved by the tragic circumstances of others far away (Rose, 2006), and they responded with gifts of money and provisions, and even with offers of their own sk
