2.3.2 The project (single) team

The project, or single, team consists of a group of people who come together as a distinct organisational unit in order to work on a project or projects. The team is often led by a project manager, though self-managing and self-organising arrangements are also found. Quite often, a team that has been successful on one project will stay together to work on subsequent projects. This is particularly common where an organisation engages repeatedly in projects of a broadly similar nature – for e

Menu costs at work : restaurant prices and the introduction of the Euro
This paper on menu costs by Bart Hobijn, Federico Ravenna and Andrea Tambalotti was originally published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Volume 121, August 2006. "Restaurant prices in the euro area increased dramatically after the introduction of the euro. We argue that this increase can be explained by a common model of menu cost pricing, extended to include the state-dependent decision of firms on when to adopt the new currency. Two mechanisms drive this result. First, firms concentrate

2.4 Summary of Part A

Part A explored the development of humanitarian and human rights law. The development of new democracies with written constitutions laid the framework for the general recognition of rights such as freedom of speech. General principles emerged:

  • certain rights exist because a human being is entitled to ‘humanity’;

  • those rights cannot be denied or taken away;

  • recognition of the rule of law.

Elizabeth Norton, Ph.D.: Using simultaneous EEG-fMRI to characterize human face processing in space
A key feature of the human social brain is its specialized ability to process faces. EEG and fMRI brain imaging studies have yielded conflicting results about whether the brain's response to faces is qualitatively or quantitatively different in individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Here, I present data from a study using simultaneous EEG-fMRI to relate the EEG/ERP time course of face processing to the associated fMRI activation in adults with and without ASD. This approach is novel

18.755 Introduction to Lie Groups (MIT)
This course is devoted to the theory of Lie Groups with emphasis on its connections with Differential Geometry. The text for this class is Differential Geometry, Lie Groups and Symmetric Spaces by Sigurdur Helgason (American Mathematical Society, 2001). Much of the course material is based on Chapter I (first half) and Chapter II of the text. The text however develops basic Riemannian Geometry, Complex Manifolds, as well as a detailed theory of Semisimple Lie Groups and Symmetric

This article aims to present a Methodological Guide to add gamification elements to the Geodesign framework when planning the future of the city, using Geogames such Minecraft, with the participation of children in Tirol, in Brazil. The problematic tackled is related to the challenges that participants of a Geodesign workshop face when co-designing projects as alternative futures for the territory, such as losing engagement and involvement. To support the participants overcome these challenges w

TALAT Lecture 1253: Creep
This lecture constitutes an introduction to creep and to the creep response of aluminium and its alloys. It provides basic information on creep and its mechanisms; it gives a description of the more extensively used mathematical relations among creep variables (time, stress and temperature); it illustrates the creep response of pure Aluminium and of Al-Mg alloys; it provides a synthesis of the information available in the literature on the creep behaviour of a number of new alloys and composites

1.5 Tips on character creation

  • Use a journal to build ideas for character.

  • Consider all the influences that go into the making of your character: age, gender, race, nationality, marital status, religion, profession.

  • Know about your character's inner life: what s/he wants, thinks, remembers, resents, fears, dreams, denies.

  • Know about your character's behaviour, what s/he wears, buys, eats, says, works at and plays at.
