Liberty`s Kids: "The Intolerable Acts"
This video gives a good fictional account of the Intolerable Acts. Taxation, Boston, Ben Franklin, Red Coats, and Tea Party all all key words discussed in this video. This is a wonderful teaching resource for a unit on the history of the US. It certainly helps to build background knowledge on lifestyle, clothing, transportation, etc. during colonial times (10:51).

3.5 Hydroelectricity

Another energy source that has been harnessed by humanity for many centuries is the power of flowing water, which has been used for milling corn, pumping and driving machinery. During the twentieth century, its main use has been in the generation of hydroelectricity, and hydropower has grown to become one of the world's principal electricity sources. It currently provides some 2.3 per cent of world primary energy. However, the relative contribution of hydroelectric power (and of other electri

Modeling Architectural Design Objectives in Physically Based Space Planning
Physically based space planning is a means for automating the conceptual design process by applying the physics of motion to space plan elements. This methodology provides for a responsive design process, which allows a designer to easily make decisions whose consequences immediately propagate throughout the design. It combines the speed of automated design methods with the flexibility of manual design methods, while adding a highly interactive quality and a sense of collaboration with the desig

2.3.1 Burner reactors

The object of a burner reactor is to use up or 'burn' as much uranium-235 as possible. For some reactor designs the uranium-235 content of natural uranium is increased chemically to produce enriched uranium, which contains up to 3% uranium-235 (compared with the naturally occurring 0.7%).

4 Single vaccines – the middle way?

Much of the campaign surrounding doubts about the MMR vaccine has centred on a call to replace MMR with single vaccines. This is seen as part of a precautionary argument, just in case Wakefield turns out to be right about an association between the MMR vaccine and autism. After all, the spectre of government reassurances about the ‘safety’ of BSE-infected meat and the subsequent climb down still loom large in public consciousness. Comparisons to the BSE crisis were reinforced by Wakefield

1.6 Implementation

Implementation involves the construction of a database according to the specification of a logical schema. This will include the specification of an appropriate storage schema, security enforcement, external schema, and so on. Implementation is heavily influenced by the choice of available DBMS, database tools and operating environment. There are additional tasks beyond simply creating a database schema and implementing the constraints – data must be entered into the tables, issues relating
