Preparing for Life in a Digital Age

Skill to exploit info and conversation applied sciences (ICT) is an critical for powerful participation in today’s electronic age. faculties all over the world are responding to the necessity to supply children with that skill. yet how powerful are they during this regard? The IEA overseas laptop and data Literacy research (ICILS) answered to this question via learning the level to which teenagers have constructed computing device and knowledge literacy (CIL), that's outlined because the skill to exploit pcs to enquire, create and speak with others at domestic, university, the office and in society.

iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It

"iWoz strains the lifestyles and instances of a super, talented. .. person whose contributions to the medical, company and cultural nation-states are large. "—Bookpage

Before slender laptops that healthy into briefcases, desktops gave the impression of unusual, alien merchandising machines. yet in "the such a lot stunning burst of technical invention by way of a unmarried individual in high-tech history" (BusinessWeek​) Steve Wozniak invented the 1st actual computer. Wozniak teamed up with Steve Jobs, and Apple machine was once born, igniting the pc revolution and remodeling the area. right here, thirty years later, the mischievous genius with the low profile treats readers to a rollicking, no-holds-barred account of his life—for as soon as, within the voice of the wizard himself.

Fundamentals of Durable Reinforced Concrete (Modern Concrete Technology Series (E. & F.N. Spon).)

Longevity disasters in bolstered concrete constructions are wasteful of assets and effort. The advent to perform of eu usual EN 206-1 represents an important shift in emphasis at the have to explicitly think of every one capability sturdiness risk whilst specifying and generating concrete.

6vap. Fig. 4. - PHENIX steam generator The steam generators are located in the same building and this could be a common mode of failure in case of a sodium fire in one of the three circuits. In order to improve the protection against sodium fire the following works are in progress and should be archived in 1998 : partial isolation of each loop from the others, isolation of the sodium from the steam circuits, thermal protection of some structures (particularly the supports of the sodium pipes, the main parts of the structural steel network, the steam generator vessels), the construction of sodium recuperation tanks in case of leaks, the construction of a protection gallery for the command equipment, modification of the ventilation circuits, etc....

Flexibility is retained to accommodate a range of breeder and burner cores with the minimum of adaptation of the reactor design. The feedback from the operating fast reactors is achieved through a systematic review of the design of each system and component in the light of the European reactor experience and to the extent possible all fast reactor experience worldwide. So the Reference Design is the evolution of the EFR Consistent Design from the Phase 2 studies. It is a design where the economic goal is achieved through a compact layout by minimising the number of main components (6 Intermediate Heat Exchangers IHXs and 3 Primary Sodium Pumps) and a small rotating shield (see Table 1).

After technical review meetings, in February 1996, the Safety Authority did not rule on the possibility of extending the life time of PHENIX, and did not want to authorize performance of the 50 th cycle. The Safety Authority has requested safety improvements and technical demonstrations, before it examines the possibility of authorizing a new start-up of PHENIX, in particular : • The installation of a Safety Scram System (Complementary Shutdown System). • A demonstration of the possibility of reinforcing the plant against seismic loads (historically maximum seism) taking into account new design rules.
