1.4.1 Choices in dying

An enormous diversity exists in the way people view and approach death and dying. This diversity continues to be evident when people are faced with the knowledge that their own death is approaching. There is no standard, correct or even best way of dying. Yet there is a concept of a ‘good death’ which will be addressed in this section. As a course team we are somewhat ambivalent about the usefulness of the phrase, but we retain it largely as a reminder that there are important issues to b

1.4 Cellular responses are diverse

Cellular responses can be extremely rapid – for example, the opening of ion channels to effect a change in the membrane potential or the contraction of muscle fibres, which occur within milliseconds of signal reception, or may take minutes, such as whole cell movement, synthesis of new proteins or changes in metabolic activity. There are also longer-term responses, which may be on the scale of hours or even days, such as cell division and programmed cell death. Often several types of respon

2.4 IT systems at home

Most homes in the UK contain a variety of systems for entertainment, lighting, security, heating and so on. The idea of a smart home is to integrate the control of these systems. So, for example, if you are away from home and want to make sure the house is warm for when you get back, you could call the house and switch the central heating on.

We aren't going to go into any more detail about how the smart home works, but the following activity uses some of the data from a survey a

Design Algorithms after Le Corbusier
Some views of design are the act as puzzle making, problem solving, evolutionary, and decision-making. All these focus on form generation as constructive, therefore characterizing design as a path-planning problem through a space of possibilities. Design problems consist sets of information divided into initial, intermediate, and goal states. Design in its simplest state consist of a set of operators, sequences (or paths) between initial and goals states. In this paper, I present design algorith

7 The pros and cons, and future of geothermal energy

Geothermal energy is renewable but the fluids emit gases such as CO2, H2S, SO2, H2, CH4 and N2 when used for electricity generation. However, geothermal power plants are usually sited in areas of natural geothermal activity, where such emissions occur anyway. Other potential pollutants are various ions dissolved in the geothermal fluids, but these are almost always returned to the reservoir when the spent fluids are re-injected
