Do your students seem uninterested in learning about computing? Do they complain that the subject matter has no relevant application to the "real world"? Do they appear baffled, bored, and inattentive? Your mission as a creative facilitator is not to assign a grade; your mission is to educate students to think, learn, and make new connections they never(More)
The survival of early stages of small pelagic fish species (e.g. Engraulis encrasicolus) is highly dependent on environmental conditions in both spawning and nursery areas. Knowing the relationship between the mortality rates of the early stages and the environment may help to study and model recruitment fluctuations. During the summer of 2006, two(More)
  American higher education have been in pursuant of establishing virtual classrooms where learners can obtain their education at the comfort of their homes and via the Internet. However, one must ask, " how can students perform real lab experiments over the Internet? " To examine this distance education (DE) challenge, two researchers from Florida(More)
An analysis of the influence of environmental conditions on the pelagic fish community structure and species distribution in two areas of the Central Mediterranean sea, the Sicilian–Maltese and the Libyan continental shelves, is presented. The Libyan waters suffer from the lack of historical information on these species, and a thorough characterisation of(More)
An improved multivalley hydrodynamic model (HDM) including realistic band structure effects and impact ionization is developed. Unlike the recently-proposed HDM by Thoma et al [1] for nonparabolic band structures, our model minimizes the number of relaxation times and includes impact ionization. Furthermore, the intervalley transitions of hot carriers are(More)
Coccolithophore were collected and analyzed at 10 stations during summer 2010, from coastal and offshore areas off the eastern Libyan coast (southern Mediterranean Sea). The results were compared with oceanographic data. Total coccosphere concentrations, associated with nutrient-depleted stratified waters, show good correlation with the summer data from the(More)
