4.4 Fibre in the access network

In the 1980s there was a belief that it was only a matter of time before fibre would be installed in the access network (from individual private customers to the local telephone exchange, also called ‘the last mile’, the ‘local loop’ and, now, the ‘first mile’). Installing ‘fibre to the home’, FTTH, as this has come to be known, was always recognised to be a major undertaking, simply because of the number of links involved. If, however, the revenue from new services enabled by

Conclusion

DA opens the TV programme by stating that 'monkeys and apes have the richest social life of all mammals'. I have explored the importance of colour vision in the interactions between individuals and discussed how gestural and vocal communication add considerably to this richness. But ultimately, it is their ability to be innovative, to discover new ways of obtaining foods, to learn from one another (so-called cultural learning), to form friendships, alliances and coalitions between individuals

Mabel Holmes' Diary, 1935-1939, part 1
Mabel Holmes, a longtime Topeka resident, kept a daily diary from January 1, 1935-December 31, 1939. During this time, storms resulting from the severe drought conditions blanketed the state in dust so thick that it could be pitch black in the middle of the day; Kansans were coping with an economic depression even worse than our current one; the threat of a second World War in Europe was looming. Against this backdrop, Mabel talks about the news, weather, shopping, outings with her sister, Elma

5.2 Devolution in Scotland

Scotland endured a long and complicated process towards self-determination. In a 1979 referendum, the Scots voted in favour of the Labour government proposals to establish a Scottish Parliament, but, thanks to a special majority provision requiring at least 40 per cent of the registered electorate to vote in favour, devolution was rejected when only 32.9 per cent of the electorate voted in favour in the referendum.

Time domain method for accurate non-destructive determination of concrete pavement thickness (A)
The material in this thesis focuses on the problem of accurately determining the thickness of a concrete pavement layer via non-destructive means. Existing methods are reviewed, and limitations governing their use outlined. An alternative method based on isolating P-waves reflected off the pavement base in the time-domain is proposed. Potential advantages over established methods are that prior knowledge of P-wave velocity and geometrical correction factors are not required. Furthermore the meth

    Professor emeritus recalls the early days of PSU meteorology department
    When a young Charles Hosler started out as a meteorology instructor at Penn State there wasn't much respect for the burgeoning science among the populace. Many saw it as educated "guesswork." Even Penn State's then-president, Ralph Hetzel, had his own doubts about the ability to predict the weather consistently and accurately. Listen to now-Professor Emeritus Hosler recount his exchange with Hetzel and how Hetzel's distrust of Hosler's forecast led to a very "interesting" commencement ceremony.
