2.2 Older lives and the shadows of the workhouse: mediating ‘welfare’ through the thre

For much of the nineteenth century, the experience of public welfare by older working-class people was mediated through the local administrations of the 1834 New Poor Law Act (a separate Act was introduced in Scotland in 1845) and the deterrent of the workhouse that provided its spine. The Act enshrined a particular set of social relations underpinned by the dominant liberal political ideology of laissez-faire. Predicated on a philosophy of non-state intervention, this ideology advocat

7.1 Introduction

So far we have presented two pieces of evidence pointing to the occurrence of a big bang: the redshift of the galaxies (indicating the continuing expansion of the Universe), and the 3 K radiation (the remnant of the primordial radiation). But there is a third imprint such a big bang ought to have left on our present-day world. We cannot at this juncture trace out the full sequence of events following the instant of the big bang (that can only be done after we have worked through the next two

Virtual Reality in the Design Studio: The Eindhoven Perspective
Since 1991 Virtual Reality has been used in student projects in the Building Information Technology group. It started as an experimental tool to assess the impact of VR technology in design, using the environment of the associated Calibre Institute.

Hitler and the Third Reich
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Spring Semester 2010. The Third Reich is one of the most notorious, discussed and horrific periods of our age and although it is also very well researched, still raises many questions: How could a man like Hitler gain so much power? How could a whole nation ‘fall’ for the Nazi ideology? Why the Jews ..? In this module we will aim to deal with these and other questions about the time between 1933

6.2 A systematic approach to risk assessment

In Section 4 of this course you learned of the immense value of information to modern organisations. However, without a storage medium of some kind – paper, a hard disk, a white board, a human memory – information is entirely ephemeral. Once recorded in a medium, though, information endures and can be manipulated; but it also becomes subject to the vulnerabilities of that medium and of the systems that access that medium. And once there are vulnerabilities, there are threats to the securi
