The New Stuttgart City Library - Germany Korean architect Eun Young Yi’s proposal was selected in 1999 from 235 competition entries as the plan for the new central library of the City of Stuttgart. The building of the 80-million Euro (about $108 mil. US) Stadtbibliothek am Mailänder Platz began three years ago and the opening ceremonies took place last month. Yi has created a monolithic cube with two floors underground and nine above. Essentially all of the building, both inside and out is white. The main library floors circle an open-plan with the levels connected by open staircases.

How IBM Brings Ideas Forward From Its Teams - Preoccupations By PHIL GILBERT When you walk into a meeting, there’s always someone who thinks he or she is the smartest person in the room. Integrating the 16 Habits of Mind In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

Synapse There are two fundamentally different types of synapses: In a chemical synapse, electrical activity in the presynaptic neuron is converted (via the activation of voltage-gated calcium channels) into the release of a chemical called a neurotransmitter that binds to receptors located in the plasma membrane of the postsynaptic cell. The neurotransmitter may initiate an electrical response or a secondary messenger pathway that may either excite or inhibit the postsynaptic neuron. Chemical synapses can be classified according to the neurotransmitter released: glutamatergic (excitatory), GABAergic (inhibitory), cholinergic (e.g. vertebrate neuromuscular junction) and adrenergic (releasing norepinephrine). Synaptic communication is distinct from ephaptic coupling, in which communication between neurons occurs via indirect electric fields. Specialized synapses[edit]

Using mental shortcuts to manipulate people. To start with, let me ask you a question - and I want you to answer it FAST. I always do this sort of mental exercises before the serous staff begins. So... Learning Literacies in a Digital Age Download this document1 This paper draws on a JISC report, Thriving in the 21st century: Learning Literacies for the Digital Age, which explores examples of learning literacies provision in UK further and higher education. The nature of work is changing, not just for the growing numbers of graduates directly employed in the ‘digital’ industries. Enacting digital identity « catherinecronin When we ask our students to share online — in a discussion forum within an LMS; in a wiki, course blog, Google Doc or Facebook group; on Twitter or anywhere on the open web — we are inviting not just online interaction but an enactment of each student’s digital identity. Involvement in or resistance to online interaction is largely rooted in ideas and beliefs about identity, privacy, voice, authenticity and power. These ideas and beliefs may be articulated easily or they may previously be unreflected, but they will be invoked each time we ask students to participate online.

Biological Clock It may not be the eternal spring that Ponce de León searched for, but thanks to Steve Horvath PhD, a professor of human genetics and biostatistics at the University of California, Los Angeles, the Fountain of Youth is not as elusive as it once was. Our Real Biological Clock Horvath has developed a biological clock that makes it possible to measure the age of humans via tissue samples. Identidad visual El carácter positivo y la experimentación son el núcleo fundamental de U-P, un estudio de diseño australiano fundado por Paul Marcus Fuog y Uriah Gray. “Las restricciones propias de cada proyecto se abordan de forma optimista y creativa y se tornan en nuevas propuestas creativas. El trabajo de U-P es siempre actual y, a veces, personal, inspirado por la observación y la curiosidad por la cultura contemporánea”, afirman.
