This course examines works of film in relation to thematic issues of philosophical importance that also occur in other arts, particularly literature and opera. Emphasis is put on film's ability to represent and express feeling as well as cognition. Both written and cinematic works by Sturges, Shaw, Cocteau, Hitchcock, Joyce, and Bergman, among others, are considered. There are no tests or quizzes, however students write two major papers on...more
This subject is aimed at students with little or no programming experience. It aims to provide students with an understanding of the role computation can play in solving problems. It also aims to help students, regardless of their major, to feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs that allow them to accomplish useful goals. The class will use the Python™ programming language.
On successful completion of the course, students will be able to:· recognize, write and correctly pronounce the Arabic alphabet as well as understand the diacritic marks (al-harakaat) that affect the pronunciation of certain vowels and consonants · acquire a basic vocabulary · understand and ask simple questions · communicate in Arabic about simple familiar subjects · use greetings· introduce themselves: family and background, intere...more
Note: The Strange Case of the Erotic Kiss is at 56:30 This lecture is the last hour of the last lecture of COMP1917 - the higher stream of the first computing course of the School of Computer Science and Engineering at UNSW. We discussed the structure of the final exam. (Richard has some crazy ways of structuring exams - before the exam make sure you read the sample exam on the course homepage if you missed this lecture - so you don't ge...more
In the first or second year of his medical residency training in the US in 1978, Palmaz went to an early meeting of the Society of Cardiovascular Intervention and Radiology in New Orleans. The keynote speaker was a young professor from Germany, Andreas Grunzig, who was coming to the states to report on his early experience with balloon angioplasty. Grunzig was charasmatic and intelligent, and explained balloon angioplasty so clearly--benef...more

Writing a Geometric Series using Sigma / Summation Notation, Ex 2. This video shows how to write an Infinite geometric series .using sigma / summation notation. I do not find the actual sum for this particular convergent geometric series.
Writing a Geometric Series using Sigma / Summation Notation. This video shows how to write the infinite geometric series : 1 + 0.1 + 0.01 + 0.001+ ....using sigma / summation notation. I do not find the actual sum for this particular convergent geometric series.
How we use standards (called interfaces in this context) to permit us to write large scale computer programs in teams. Task2 as an example of standards. Writing a new interface function. Writing C unit tests using assert. Also: strings vs arrays of chars, array initializers for strings, static functions, unit testing.
The business model today is very different than it was before and during the boom, says Kawasaki. In order to write the best business plan possible, follow Kawasaki's steps: specificity, simplicity, and ask women. He believes that woman don't possess the killer gene that is inherent in men, and will be able to give better advice about a business model.
