"This piece is a collaboration between Chandler O’Leary of Anagram Press and Jessica Spring of Springtide Press. The series features quotes by historical feminists, tied in with current political and social issues. Each limited-edition broadside is letterpress printed from hand-drawn lettering and illustrations on an antique Vandercook Universal One press. Each piece is printed on archival, 100% rag (cotton) paper, and individually signed and numbered by both artists. A portion of the proceeds of each piece is donated to a cause that aligns with the issue highlighted by the artwork. Jessica and Chandler have released 23 broadsides since the series began in 2008."-- Dead Feminists website, viewed June 28, 2016.
"We created this piece amid a barrage of media and cultural images that urge women to criticize their own appearance. Unsurprisingly, we are taught to find ourselves lacking in one way or many, and to compare ourselves with an impossible ideal. Amid the impossible ideals and immortal tales of the ancient Greeks, one honey-tongued lyrical poet spoke the plain truth. At issue: body image and self-esteem"--Dead Feminists website, viewed June 28, 2016.

"The simultaneous operation of all systems generating, moving, or removing heat on an aircraft is simulated using integrated analysis which is called Integrated Energy System Analysis (IESA) for this book. The purpose of this analytical modeling is to understand, optimize, and validate more efficient system architectures for removing or harvesting the increasing amounts of waste heat generated in commercial and military aircraft. In the commercial aircraft industry IESA is driven by the desire to minimize airplane operating costs associated with increased system weight, power consumption, drag, and lost revenue as cargo space is devoted to expanded cooling systems. In military aircraft thermal IESA is also considered to be a key enabler for the successful implementation of the next-generation jet fighter weapons systems and countermeasures." ...Back cover.

"Aircraft thermal management (ATM) is increasingly important to the safe and efficient design and operation of commercial and military aircraft due to the steadily rising heat loads. These now come from expanded electronic functionality, more electric systems, and the greater temperature sensitivity of composite materials relative to traditional metallic designs (for commercial aircraft). Military aircraft designers also face the added challenges of removing the waste heat from advanced weapon systems and countermeasures. More recently, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) electronic components, which typically have more stringent cooling requirements than their military grade counterparts, are also contributors. ... The papers contained in this book describe aircraft thermal management system architectures designed to minimize airplane performance impacts, which could be applied to commercial or military aircraft." ...Back cover.

The extremities of students focusing too much on studying or too much on athletics has caused high school performance to decline across the country; therefore, it is necessary to address and more fully understand the effect of participating in athletics on academics to best help students and the future of the country.

114. Audi enosys [2016] Online

Collection
ME310 Project Based Engineering Design
Today’s homes and cars are experiencing revolutionary technological changes. The home is becoming part of the internet, with connected security, automation and entertainment functions. Cars are increasingly sophisticated on the road, drawing live traffic and media while en route and allowing users to interact with their cars through mobile apps. At the same time, how a car fits into a person’s life is heavily changing: Individual car ownership is on the decline, other transportation methods are on the rise, and cars become pooled resources – part of a communal travel planning solution for everyone. In light of these trends, Volkswagen Electronics Research Laboratory has challenged designers from Stanford University in California and the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany to develop a device that brings the Audi experience into the home. There is an ever-present need of working professionals and their families to arrive on time for work, school, and other routine and important events. Especially those who live with families have to make constant mental calculations in the morning as to when and how they need to leave which often demands more time from them. However, these calculations vary according to current traffic, weather, and public transit conditions, and even with the aid of smart phones to access this information, 1 in 5 Americans arrive late to work at least once a week. While technology has encompassed many aspects of our lives, sources of information remain disjointed. A device that aggregates all necessary information to smooth the transition from the home to the activities of the day on time would address this persistent problem. Therefore, we present enosys, the transportation assistant for the smart home. enosys resides in the home to replace the ubiquitous kitchen clock and calendar with a shared travel planning and viewing appliance (cf. Figure 1.1). enosys keeps track of the errands and transportation requirements of each member of the family, providing timely alerts as pertinent departure times approach and allowing them to see what transportation options are available for each trip. Ambient LEDs in the back of the device give subtle reminders with increasing urgency as a user’s departure time approaches. The calendars of all family members are aligned in a time line that can be easily scrolled through to see what other family members have planned for their day and which mode of transportation they are going to take. Moreover, it allows users to check on their Audi car, see where it is parked or who is currently using it and what the current range is so users know whether they have to charge or gas up. We envision Audi as a mobility provider, not necessarily directly selling cars to users, but rather connecting them to other transportation services through car share or autonomous vehicle lending. In this new paradigm, users will have to rely on more diverse and less consistent modes of transport, complicating the mental calculations required to leave on time. The value enosys provides increases over time as the nature of transportation continues to fundamentally evolve. Our solution developed focuses on the Audi-connected family of the future, with access to one or more (electric) vehicles as well as an array of transportation needs and resources. By combining many different sources of transit information in a spot where it helps the most, enosys serves as the planning hub for the transportation world of tomorrow.

Iranian photographer Azadeh Akhlaghi reconstructed scenes of the deaths of writers, clerics, and others involved in the Iranian revolution of the late 1970s. She relied on news reports and witnesses to recreate the scenes using actors, as no documentary photographs of these events exist. The photographs were first exhibited in Paris and Tehran in 2012.

Design thinking, a deliberate process meant to foster creative and overall confidence, has been applied to numerous social issues. The method, however, has yet to be used to explore the lack of women in STEM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Math) fields, resulting from systemic sexism and lack of female confidence. This paper identifies design thinking as an implementable solution to increase women’s confidence as a way to help bridge the gender gap between men and women in STEM.

The world's urban population is expected to surpass ten billion by 2045. After 100 years of the Car Culture, we are now painfully aware that cities should be human centered; Successful urban planning is now a priority. There has been growing innovations with "last mile" devices but because of the lack of suitable infrastructure, commuters do not use "last mile" devices. to move around. We see a great opportunity for a vehicle that will transport stuff and solve "last mile" distribution problem. Our goal is to make distributions more efficient. Our vision is to create a delivery device that will reduce the effort on the part of the user, and make for a better experience overall. Cargo was our final prototype of the quarter and combined all of our successful concepts into one platform. The cart prototype consisted of two major components: a drive system, and force sensitive handlebars. Cargo is driven by two high torque geared DC motors and powered by large capacity batteries. Embedded force sensors in the handlebars allow the user to interact with the cart in a natural way to move forward, backwards and turn in a drive-assist manner. Cargo can also be transformed into different configurations. Another major feature of cargo is assisting the user during cart retrieval and storage. We designed and implemented a storage system that integrates with the rear door of a Ford Transit. A linear rail system with extendable hooks allows the user to place and secure the cart to the door. Two constant force springs provide a lift force of 48lbs, holding most of the weight of cargo (95%). The user simply guide the cart up for storage. For retrieval, the user uses the same rail system to guide the cart down and lock the carriage into place.
