The material presented here raises general themes of order and disorder, the way they are represented or signified, and the place of crime in these representations. The material is based upon an audio file, originally 29 minutes in length, and examines the problem of crime in relation to the city of Glasgow. It was recorded in 1999.

Over the following screens you will look at three different examples of computers: a PC, which is obviously a computer, and a set of electronic kitchen scales and a digital camera, which are not so obviously computers. You will find that all three of these examples match with the functional block diagram of a computer given in Author(s): The Open University

Division is probably the most awkward of the four arithmetic operations. Since you may have a calculator, you do not need to be able to carry out complicated divisions by hand, but you do need to carry out simple divisions in order to check your calculator calculations. Division is the reverse process of multiplication. The quantity 12 Ã· 3 tells us how many times 3 goes into 12. Since 4 Ã— 3 = 12, 12 Ã· 3 = 4.

Most proteins contain about 1% sulfur, which occurs in the side-chains (R groups) of two of the protein-forming amino acids, methionine and cysteine.

Cysteine is particularly important in proteins such as collagen (found in bone, tendons, cartilage and skin) and keratin (found in hair and nails, as well as skin).

Wavelength multiplexers and demultiplexers are needed in order to be able to use wavelength division multiplexing. With just two wavelengths, the multiplexers and demultiplexers can be based on directional couplers because, as mentioned earlier in Section 3.2, couplers are naturally wavelength-de

World War I: Germans Attack U.S. Navy Boats
In this History Rewind video clip, take a step back in time to the beginning of World War 1. The repeated sinking of American ships caused President Wilson to declare war. Watch the historic black and white footage of some of the attacks, but there is no sound so it lacks depth.

An important consequence of the persistent currents that flow in materials with zero resistance is that the magnetic flux that passes through a continuous loop of such a material remains constant. To see how this comes about, consider a ring of metal, enclosing a fixed area A, as shown in Figure 6a. An initial magnetic field Bï»¿0 is applied perpendicular to the plane of the ring when the temperature is above the critical temperature of the material from which the rin

The Organ of Corti
Situated in the spiral-shaped cochlea of the inner ear is the organ of Corti. Only one inch long if uncoiled, it bears about twenty-five thousand sound receptor cells with hairlike projections arranged in rows on the basilar membrane. Diagrams show detailed structure of the organ of Corti. Grades 5-12. 1 min.

An individual might know that a late-onset disease such as Huntington's disease (HD) is present in their immediate family and that they might have inherited the disease gene(s). The problems of genetic testing for HD revolve around the fact that it is pre-symptomatic.

One dilemma is the long delay between testing positive and developing the clinical symptoms of the disorder in middle age. Is it better not to know and live in hope, or as one victim cried â€˜get it over, I'm so tir

If we compare the UK with other Western democracies such as Spain, Italy or Germany â€“ all endowed with decentralised structures allowing various degrees of political autonomy for their regions â€“ we discover that strong regional identity, as in Catalonia, the Veneto and Bavaria, is always a very important feature. However, some newly created regions such as La Rioja and Madrid in Spain also exercise devolved powers. What unites them is a common interest; the belief that regional government

A character under genetic influence where the distinction between treatment and enhancement is hard to draw is height. Treatment of short stature â€“ with human growth hormone made in genetically manipulated bacteria â€“ has already given rise to controversy about how short a child needs to be for treatment to count as meeting a medical need. That is, how tall is tall enough?

As we identify genes that have effects on many other human characters, from appearance to, perhaps, intelligence

The provenance of a piece of information (i.e. who produced it? where did it come from?) may provide another useful clue to its reliability. It represents the 'credentials' of a piece of information that support its status and perceived value. It is therefore very important to be able to identify the author, sponsoring body or source of your information.

Why is this important?
