The Impact of 3D Digital Modeling on the 3D Design Aspects in Urban Design Plans
Some experts suggest that urban design plans in US cities may lack adequate coverage of the three-dimensional design aspects of the built environment. 3D digital models may help designers visualize and interact with design alternatives, large urban data sets, and 3D information more effectively, thus correcting this problem. Case studies of recent urban design plans that have used 3D digital models may indicate whether these technologies can increase the quality of the plan. This research discus

Guido Hülsmann: Inside the Mind of Mises
Jeff Deist and Guido Hülsmann discuss Hülsmann's years spent writing Mises's biography ('Mises: The Last Knight of Liberalism'), the serendipitous discovery of Mises's papers in Moscow that made the book possible, how Mises endured and kept working as Europe burned, and how Mises's personal sacrifices helped pave the way for Austrian academics working today.

Mid module Review Action Points (template)
It is accepted good practice in higher education that all modules are reviewed to help improve the students’ experiences of the learning they engage with while they study at Leeds Metropolitan University. Mid module review is part of a systematic approach to QA/QE and a way to use verbal or written or online feedback from our students for monitoring and progressing changes particularly where there is student cause for concern often relating to organisational, teaching and learning and commun

How DNA Works – The Way DNA Duplicates Itself
DNA replication is a fundamental process occurring in all living
organisms that copies their DNA. This process is “semiconservative” in
that each strand of the original double-stranded DNA molecule serves as
template for the reproduction of the complementary strand. Watch this
educational video on the process in which DNA duplicates itself.

1.1 Formal handover

The outputs of a project should be defined at the planning stage, including any conditions that will be required for a smooth transfer. Each outcome should be formally handed over to the sponsor who should confirm their delivery (‘sign them off’) so that there is no dispute about whether outcomes have been completed.

A closure list is likely to have sections to include the following groups of tasks, but each project will have different features to consider. A list of suggested areas

An Interactive Shape Modeling System for Robust Design of Functional 3D Shapes
In Architecture, it is essential to design functional and topologically complicated 3D shapes (i.e. shapes with many holes, columns and handles). In this paper, we present a robust and interactive system for the design of functional and topologically complicated 3D shapes. Users of our system can easily change topology (i.e. they can create and delete holes and handles, connect and disconnect surfaces). Our system also provide smoothing operations (subdivision schemes) to create smooth surfaces.

6 Summary

This course has looked at specifying the requirements of a job by drawing up a job description and a person specification. We considered how you might indicate the qualities required of individuals in relation to person-organisation fit as well as the more traditional approach of person-job fit. We then considered various methods of attracting candidates and the process of arriving at a shortlist. We have stressed the importance of preparing for the selection process, be it an interview alone

2.9 Summary

In this section, I started by emphasising the fact that the computer, which has become more or less omnipresent in modern society, is a tool like any other.

I went on to look at the special nature of that tool, establishing that its function is to capture, store, present, exchange and manipulate interesting aspects of the world.

I then introduced the idea of two contrasting realms: the analogue world we inhabit and the digital interior world of the computer. When we capture featur
