Transcript: 14th Week Consulting interns can be expensive Time and Money Personal Experience Preliminary Design Stage NFPA 101 and NFPA 13 New and Existing Education, Business, and Mercantile Definition of Project This app would be used to provide interns and recent graduates with an outline of guidelines for how to design and review designs of specific occupancies. With the given time frame, I will be writing the information that will go into the app Begin parametric study: Speak with my mentor and Jason to understand more about what critical variables I could concentrate on for this app. Choose those parameters and begin my study Gather information from NFPA 101 and NFPA 13 for new and existing education, business, and mercantile occupancies. By: Breanne Thompson Next Steps (Continued) Finish preparing for Draft of Analysis Pull together and discuss results of project Draw my conclusions and state future work needed Turn in Final Paper! 10th and 11th Week Turn in my parametric study Begin draft of analysis Map out the process of the app for the key elements 15th Week References Next Steps 7th Week Prepare for Final Presentation Summarize my draft of analysis into presentation Work on how to incorporate a live demonstration for my presentation App Development Background Information 8th-9th Week Continuous Process Objective-C for Apple products Java for Android products 6 months of studying Places to Learn: Codecademy, iOS Dev Center, Android Developers Training Hire App Developer will cost thousands Prepare Final Paper Dive into Shark Tank! 1. http://lifehacker.com/5401954/programmer-101-teach-yourself-how-to-code 2. http://www.bluecloudsolutions.com/blog/cost-develop-app/ 6th Week Background Presentation 12th-13th Week

Transcript: Real action and accountability Amnesty International Non-state actors/ Rebel Groups?? ...and what about men?? ignoring male rape victims? would rape exist without a man? Weapons of War: Rape UN as an Arena - NGO's - Discussion and dialogue Arena Instrument Actor Critical Thinking Weapons of War: Rape UN as an instrument UNSC Resolution 1820 (2008) UN as an Actor - UN Action Against Sexual Violence in Conflict Weapons of War: Rape Problems with 1820 "Roles and Functions of International Organizations" "Sexual violence, when used as a tactic of war in order to deliberately target civilians or as a part of a widespread or systematic attack against civilian populations, can significantly exacerbate situations of armed conflict and may impede the restoration of international peace and security… effective steps to prevent and respond to such acts of sexual violence can significantly contribute to the maintenance of international peace and security" (UNSC Resolution 1820, p. 2)" http://www.stoprapenow.org/uploads/advocacyresources/1282164625.pdf Background Presentation- Kristin Mann Weapons of War: Rape Brief Insight - used to manipulate social control - destabilize communities - weaken ethnic groups and identities Examples: - Sudanese Militia - Rwanda Genocide - DRC Critical Thinking http://www.womenundersiegeproject.org/blog/entry/the-need-for-numbers-on-rape-in-warand-why-theyre-nearly-impossible-to-get Critical Thinking Increased Data Collection by international organizations - determine humanitarian responses - ensures justice and reparation - provides recognition and dignity

Transcript: Power take-off system: how the device transfers wave power to storable energy In surface-following attenuators, long, hinged floating tubes bob up and down in the water, parallel to the direction of the waves As the hinges flex, hydraulic fluid pumps generators What are two disadvantages of wave power? Sources: This is an example of an "oscillating wave surge converter" What are wave power stations classified by? Wave Power How it works: Pelamis - surface-following attenuator Wave energy is completely free! There is no fuel needed and no waste product. METHODS of energy capture include: What are two advantages to wave energy? Aquamarine Power's Oyster wave power http://www.darvill.clara.net/altenerg/wave.htm http://ocsenergy.anl.gov/guide/wave/index.cfm http://www.alternative-energy-news.info/technology/hydro/wave-power/ http://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/earth/oceanography/wave-energy2.htm By Anri Brod & Helen Wieffering Generators are dependent upon the waves and the wind, which may vary. Needs a suitable site where waves are consistent. Wave generators must be able to withstand rough seas and winds Current technology can only capture about 50% of the energy produced. Impact on marine life is another concern. Some designs are very noisy - noise pollution could have a negative impact. Wave farms may interfere with commercial and recreational fishing Waves can produce A LOT of energy. ADVANTAGES Questions! Pelamis is an example of which type of energy capture? LOCATIONS for the devices include shoreline, nearshore, and offshore CETO - buoy EXAMPLES: Power stations are not expensive to operate or maintain. Overtopping devices have reservoirs which are filled with water by incoming waves to levels above the average surrounding ocean. This water is then released, and the energy of the falling water turns turbines. Point absorber/buoy Surface-floating attenuator Overtopping device Oscillating water column, etc. Disadvantages: In point absorbers and buoys, the buoys move relative to each other due to wave action, and this relative motion is used to drive electromechanical or hydraulic energy converters. In the case of CETO, underwater equipment on the sea bed has pistons, which are moved when waves pass across the top of the unit. This pumps seawater to drive generators on land. Name two things that affect wave power Wind transfers its energy onto waves as it blows over water Wave power is determined by height, wave speed, wavelength, and water density There are many, many, many different ways of collecting this power; because wave power is a largely unexplored method of alternative energy, there's no established "best" way to do it. Generally, these devices are classified based on three things: the method of energy capture, location, and their power take-off system
