Lies, lies and more lies
Deception in organisations can start with a few 'bad apples' but the rot often spreads much wider and deeper. New research from Dr Stelios C. Zyglidopoulos reveals how apparently good people - churchgoers in Enron's case - can gradually become corrupt, sometimes as a result of social pressures within the organisation.

Scotland's legal and education systems are distinctive and differ from those of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. This therefore leads to differences in frameworks and standards of professional recognition within the United Kingdom.

This section of OpenLearn Scotland introduces learners to areas of professional development where The Open University has developed curricula specifically to meet the needs of students and employers in Scotland.

In Section 6.2, we said that inter-axis repulsions vary in the order:

non-bonded pair-non-bonded pair > non-bonded pair-bond pair > bond pair-bond pair

There is evidence for this in the inter-bond angles in molecules. For example, in water and

We know that a polygon X is a surface and so each point x in X has a disc-like or half-disc-like neighbourhood. We shall show that a map f that identifies edges of a polygon to create an object Y automatically creates corresponding disc-like or half-disc-like neighbourhoods of each point y = f(x) of Y.

If x is in the interior of X, there is no difficulty: the point x has a disc-like neighbourhood U

Diagraphics: an expos? of visual expression
This expos? introduces preparations for a publication based on what I have found to be a ?missing link? in the library of educational source materials. The skills necessary to record and interpret the complexity of the architectural design process are often illusive. The sophistication of computer modeling and graphics applications only adds to the dilemma of making clear and concise decisions about how to communicate the essence of one?s design intent. The publication will define and illustrate

5.2.2 Optical fibre

In all developed countries, long-distance communication links (which used to be called 'trunks', by analogy to 'trunk road') nearly always use optical fibre. It is only where the terrain makes it difficult to lay a cable (such as in mountains or, sometimes, between islands) or when a new link is needed quickly and there isn't time to lay a cable that microwave links are used instead.

An optical fibre is a strand of glass or plastic, not much thicker than a human hair, which guides light

Points of view : capturing the 19th century in photographs
'Points of View: Capturing the 19th Century in Photographs' is the website and online exhibition of a major exhibition at the British Library in London. The free exhibition ends on 7th Mar 2010. The curators have selected works from the rich and rarely-seen 300,000-item photographic archives of the British Museum (now at the British Library, which has since added to the 19th century collection) to ask of the 19th century: "Who was making the photograph and why?" The website contains an online e

It is worth emphasising that the gravitational energy (or gravitational potential energy, to give it the full name) of an object increases when it moves in the opposite direction to the gravitational force (i.e. when it moves upwards). This relationship between energy and force does not apply only to gravity. For many forces, motion against the force (that is, in the opposite direction to the force) allows energy to be stored, and this energy can be reclaimed when the obj
