Figure 1 showed two spiral galaxies: NGC 5548, which has an active nucleus, and NGC 3277 which does not. If we accept that AGN are the result of accretion on to supermassive black holes at the centres of the galaxies which harbour them, it is natural to ask the question whether galaxies like NGC 3277, which do not

In the last section, we considered how a formula could be built up and then how it could be used. This section considers some more complicated formulas, which have already been developed and are used in a variety of different situations â€“ cookery, healthcare, business and archaeology. We hope that these examples illustrate some of the very broad applications of maths and how mathematical relationships can be used in making decisions. As you work through these examples, you may like to consi

Cavity formation in a tensile loaded alumina particulate composite
Horizontal stringers of fine oxide particles can be seen, parallel to the extrusion direction (horizontal). Under the tensile load, voids have nucleated at the interface between the matrix and the reinforcement particles, and some particle fracture has also occurred. Most voids form on planar faces normal to the tensile load (horizontal), and particularly where stringers of fine oxide particles also intersect the interface. These stringers provide interfacial flaws which may then be preferent

9.22J A Clinical Approach to the Human Brain (MIT)
This course is designed to provide an understanding of how the human brain works in health and disease, and is intended for both the Brain and Cognitive Sciences major and the non-Brain and Cognitive Sciences major. Knowledge of how the human brain works is important for all citizens, and the lessons to be learned have enormous implications for public policy makers and educators. The course will cover the regional anatomy of the brain and provide an introduction to the cellular function of neur

• studied the physical layout of Acts of Parliament and identified those features common to all Acts of Parliament;

• read sections of the Law Reform (Year and a Day Rule) Act 1996 and the Crime and Disorder Act 1998;

• examined the importance of Schedules and the short statement at the beginning of the Act;

• studied the language

Common sense tells me my experience and understanding of the world are limited. I am 173 cm in height. That limits my view of the world. It may not matter much that I cannot see what my house looks like from above but it does mean there will be things going on in the roof I may not notice until they impinge on areas that I can experience.

More significantly, there is a real limitation on understanding the experiences of other people. You might tell me about your experience but your desc

In the message that you completed you saw that the information covered four things.

1. Who was calling.

2. When they called.

3. What the call was about (the subject).

4. What information or action was required.

These are the four key things in a message that need to be noted.

4.463 Building Technology III: Building Structural Systems (MIT)
This course addresses advanced structures, exterior envelopes and contemporary production technologies. It continues the exploration of structural elements and systems, and expands to include more complex determinate, indeterminate, long-span and high-rise systems. It covers topics such as reinforced concrete, steel and engineered wood design, and provides an introduction to tensile systems. Lectures also address the contemporary exterior envelope with an emphasis on their performance attributes

Zinc is involved in many metabolic processes in the body, due to its importance in the functioning of more than 100 enzymes. These control, amongst other things, metabolism of foods, production of energy, cell division and protein synthesis. The body contains 2 to 3 g of zinc in total. Zinc is most commonly found in protein-rich foods, such as meat, and also in peanuts and pulses (peas and beans). Generally sufficient is available in Western diets, although there is some concern that amounts

Fracture surface in a liquid crystalline polymer, oriented by a magnetic field
Above their melting point, liquid crystalline polymers exhibit a mesophase within which, although able to flow and are not arranged in a crystal, they exhibit long range orientational order. This molecular alignment can be exploited to make high strength and stiffness fibres such as Kevlar, or even mouldable thermotropics such as Vectra. Molecular alignment can also be controlled by an external applied field; a property exploited in liquid crystal displays. This polymer has been subjected to

If you were now to take a broader biological approach to the data discussed in the previous section you might still be puzzled. Excess body weight leads to a variety of diseases, including diabetes, osteoarthritis and so on â€“ surely this must reduce overall biological fitness.

A grainy Polaroid of the child in a mother's womb â€“ an X-ray of a tibia fractured in a traffic accident â€“ a report on a brain scan anxiously awaited. Very few of us have not had some connection with the techniques and practices of medical imaging. Often, these contacts are in periods of personal drama in which the medical images chart our physical status, the management of a condition and, in some cases, our future.

Imaging is a central feature of contemporary medicine. Along with c
