The Vaugh Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Technology (VIAET) is committed to academic excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate’s education and research programmes across a broad spectrum of disciplines in agricultural engineering. When the response to racism is prejudice, you simply get more of the same because fear then prevails, and for that both parties carry responsibility. You may not have started it, but you are continuing it. Fear must be met with love (compassion) for it to dissipate. This was displayed beautifully by the Director of South Carolina Department of Public Safety, Leroy Smith who as a state trooper, was on crowd control duty during a white supremacist rally at the removal of the Confederate rebel flag. Whilst there, he noticed an ailing elderly white man in the crowd under the unforgiving July sun. Despite the fact that Mr. Smith is black and this man was a KKK supporter wearing a T-shirt bearing a swastika, he quickly moved to his aid, putting his arm around him and slowly walking him up 40 or so steps to the State House (with words of encouragement) into an air-conditioned room for him to recover. The fact that a photo of Mr. Smith helping a KKK supporter went viral is indicative of the power of this gesture. Topics include nanosensors and nanodevices for both clinical diagnostics and biowarfare (bioterror) agent detection; nanostructures for drug delivery; nanoarrays and nanodevices; use of nanoanalytical devices and systems; methods and techniques for modification or functionalization of nanoparticles and nanostructures with biological molecules; nanostructural aspects of fuel cells and biofuel cells; potential use of DNA and other biomolecules for computing and ultra-high-density data storage. Cross-listed with BENG 247C and NANO 247C. Prerequisites: graduate standing. A conducting mesh can be used to approximate the electrical characteristics of the continuous plate. When the mesh is symmetrically located over the inductive loop to produce maximum sensitivity, all induced internal mesh currents cancel. This results in a single induced current flowing around the perimeter of the mesh, which is equivalent to a single turn rectangular wire loop or shorted turn. The air core transformer on the right of Figure 2-10 models the coupling between the vehicle undercarriage, as represented by a shorted turn of wire, and the inductive-loop wire. In neoliberal countries where the capitalist-corporatist sector is dominant, this close relationship between the rich and the poor is particularly evident. In all neoliberal capitalist countries the poor have got poorer since the early 1980s and the rich have got richer. When social-democratic capitalism was in place in Western countries in the third quarter of the 20th century, democratic governments were powerful enough to tame the capitalist-corporatist sector and bring about an equalisation of income. But when social democracy was replaced by neoliberal capitalism in the early 1980s, income became much more unequally distributed in all Western countries.
Speaking at London’s Westminster Abbey in late November of 2018, internationally renowned AI expert Stuart Russell joked (or not) about his formal agreement with journalists that I won’t talk to them unless they agree not to put a Terminator robot in the article.â€ His quip revealed an obvious contempt for Hollywood representations of far-future AI, which tend toward the overwrought and apocalyptic. What Russell referred to as human-level AI,â€ also known as artificial general intelligence, has long been fodder for fantasy. But the chances of its being realized anytime soon, or at all, are pretty slim. The machines almost certainly won’t rise (sorry, Dr. Russell) during the lifetime of anyone reading this story. One of the most important advances in sensor technology in the last ten years has been the focused development of smart sensors. The definition of “smart” and “intelligent” sensing can be debated. In general, it is difficult to identify any features in a smart sensor that parallel intelligence in natural systems; however, the terms have become cemented in the technical jargon. The basic tenet of smart sensors is that the sensor complexities must be concealed internally and must be transparent to the host system. Smart sensors are designed to present a simple face to the host structure via a digital interface, such that the complexity is borne by the sensor and not by the central signal processing system. This report does not address specific technologies associated with smart sensing but instead presents the concept and identifies where and why opportunities exist for new sensor materials as well as for the utilization of existing materials that have not traditionally been used for sensing applications. On 27 May 2020, the Commission adopted a new Communication Europe’s moment: Repair and Prepare for the Next Generation As part of the package, the new Cybersecurity Strategy will look at how to boost EU-level cooperation, knowledge and capacity. It will also help Europe strengthen its industrial capabilities and partnerships, and encourage the emergence of SMEs in the field. This will accompany the review of the Directive on security of network and information systems and a proposal for additional measures on Critical Infrastructure Protection. Together with the ongoing work on cybersecurity as part of the EU Security Union, this will increase capabilities within Member States and boost the EU’s overall cybersecurity. Standards the ISO created itself are denoted by an EN. EN ISO standard 14713-2 gives the guidelines for hot dip galvanizing of steel. DIN EN 13411-4 is the standard for steel wire rope terminations. The German DINâ€ designation comes before the European standard ENâ€.
