KiloWatts is a marriage of man and machine - a love story about cells and bits - an attempt at defining a hilariously absurd and imperfect reality through an electronic invention that promises to encode this vision eternally. The music is deep, the songs tell stories, and the sounds are intensely emotional. Nested within the musical structure is an element of quirky electronic experimentation - a roadmap of new and interesting ways of caressing and mangling waveforms. The result is a cinematic tale of knowledge, confusion, and pushing forward.
Did you ever wonder how high the valves should lift; what happens when you scale it up or down; how big the inlet passage should be; why small engines run so fast; how heavy it will be; how the flywheel effect changes with size; how to set your lathe for greater accuracy; or how to check tapers and angles? Rudy describes and illustrates his real world approach to problem solving on these and other subjects in the shop and at the drawing board. He includes an outline and drawings of examples used in the DVD presentation.
Welcome to Clinical Problem Solving, offered by the University of California, San Francisco, on Coursera. This course will examine the ways physicians think about clinical problem solving and will help participants develop competence in the building blocks of clinical problem solving. The professor will use cases to illustrate different reasoning strategies and will discuss how both correct and incorrect diagnoses result from these strategies. Participants will use sample clinical cases to practice what they have learned through the lectures. Finally, the professor will discuss strategies to help students and young physicians read textbooks and articles in a way that enhances their ability to use information in the clinical environment.
