All local authorities in South Africa are required to develop an Integrated Development Plan (IDP). In this article the authors reproduce the submission of the public library service in Pietermaritzburg-Msundizi to the IDP. They stress the importance of the library service in providing the information necessary t o support the implementation of the IDP and… (More)
The size and complexity of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) application continue to grow at a significant rate. The focus of this panel is to examine the impact that such growth should be having on attendant Verification and Validation (V&V) activities. Two prominent considerations guiding the panel discussion are: (1) Extending the current M&S development… (More)
According to anti-atomism, we represent color properties (e.g., red) in virtue of representing color relations (e.g., redder than). I motivate anti-atomism with a puzzle involving a series of pairwise indistinguishable chips. I then develop two versions of anti-atomism.
I develop a new problem for almost all realist theories of colour. The problem involves fluctuations in our colour experiences that are due to visual noise rather than changes in the objects we are looking at.
Glaucoma, where the retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) carrying the visual signals from the retina to the visual centers in the brain are progressively lost, is the most common cause of irreversible blindness. The management approaches, whether surgical, pharmacological, or neuroprotective do not reverse the degenerative changes. The stem cell approach to… (More)
Description This gradulate-level course has two aims. The first is to help people feel more comfortable asking questions at colloquia and conferences. The second is to help people transform good objections into good questions. Towards these ends, we will meet on the Wednesday before each colloquium and conference to discuss possible questions. Requirements… (More)
Glaucoma is a complex group of diseases wherein a selective degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) lead to irreversible loss of vision. A comprehensive approach to glaucomatous RGC degeneration may include stem cells to functionally replace dead neurons through transplantation and understand RGCs vulnerability using a disease in a dish stem cell… (More)
