Visionary sports executive takes the helm as next Vanderbilt athletics director
Vanderbilt University Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos today named Malcolm Turner, a proven and highly accomplished sports business executive with a passion for the transformative power of education, as the university’s new vice chancellor for athletics and university affairs and athletics director. Turner, a member of the NBA’s senior leadership team and president of the NBA G League, will join the university on Feb. 1, 2019. “I set out to find a thought leader with the skill set and vision to manage the next stage of transformation for Vanderbilt Athletics, and that’s exactly what we found in Malcolm Turner,” Zeppos said. “Malcolm is a proven executive with deep expertise in multiple business disciplines including management, marketing and development across the sports landscape of teams, leagues, facilities and major events. He also carries a deep and personal commitment to education, evidenced by his own academic achievements and his extensive community service. His exceptional skills, combined with his passion for education and drive for excellence, will bring immense value not only to the Vanderbilt Commodores, but to the rest of the university and to the entire Nashville community.” Vanderbilt interviewed a number of highly accomplished candidates and ultimately decided Turner was the right fit to carry on Vanderbilt’s athletics program. “The level of interest in this role from a superb and diverse set of candidates was nothing short of remarkable,” noted Zeppos. “This was a testament to what I believe is an inspiring and distinctive approach to the student athlete experience that I call ‘the Vanderbilt Way’ – a deep commitment to the comprehensive development of student athletes to excel on the field of play, academically and in life.” Zeppos said Turner is the right leader to take the university’s commitment to student-athletes to the next level and achieve success on and off the field. “Malcolm is a problem solver with a unique ability to bring people together around a common vision,” he added. “I am confident that he will have an immediate and profound impact on the Commodores’ success as an elite athletics program by building new relationships and new sources of revenue, while recruiting and retaining extraordinarily talented coaches, students and staff.” “I am honored to join such a storied university with a historic commitment to excellence in everything it does,” Turner said. “Vanderbilt University and the city of Nashville are on the move, and I’m excited to be a part of that transformation and help position the Commodores and Vanderbilt’s unique approach to developing student-athletes as a national and international model. I look forward to supporting and partnering with our student-athletes, coaches, facility managers, staff and the entire Commodores community to help attain and provide the resources for our teams to succeed.” Turner graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and went on to earn joint J.D./.M.B.A. degrees from Harvard University. Turner is also an accomplished community leader, having served on the advisory boards for Teach for America, the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School, the UNC Board of Visitors and the board of the Morehead-Cain Scholarship Fund. As a student at UNC Chapel Hill, Turner was a Rhodes Scholar Finalist, Morehead-Cain Scholar and recipient of the Ernest L. Mackie Chancellor’s Award for character, scholarship and leadership. Turner’s tenure as president of the NBA G League is hallmarked by growth, expansion and transformation. Under Turner’s leadership, the NBA G League has enjoyed unprecedented growth across all areas of its business and basketball operations — from record numbers of NBA G League alumni in the NBA, to a first-of-its-kind expanded entitlement partnership with Gatorade, to innovative new player contract types. A champion for NBA Two-Way Contracts (newly incorporated in the NBA’s current Collective Bargaining Agreement) and NBA G League Select Contracts (newly announced as part of the G League’s recently launched professional path), Turner’s vision deepened the league’s commitment to player development.

Human Population Through Time
It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth’s resources, even as we approach 11 billion?

CTR Development Site (salton sea)
Controlled Thermal Resources (US) Inc. is a multi-faceted Electricity Generation and Minerals Extraction Corporation that is developing a diverse Utility Scale Renewable Energy & Extraction Project located at the Salton Sea, Southern California USA. The Salton Sea is well known for its accessible shallow Geothermal Resources. The combination of low elevation, thin earth crust and seismic activity enables the Imperial Valley to generate 20% of all the geothermal energy produced in the United States. The 16 geothermal plants currently operating in the area produce over 530MW of electricity. It is anticipated that the Salton Sea geothermal field may contain an additional 2,000MW of commercial development potential. CTR have conducted extensive research over 18 months within the Known Geothermal Resource Area “KGRA” of the Salton Sea and have secured a highly productive site. CTR has adopted a risk adverse approach to development, whilst creating multiple revenue streams by the way of: Geothermal Energy Generation; Minerals Extraction; and Solar Power Co-Generation. CTR has secured a site with large resources including mineral rights. Plans for development are over multiple stages. Stage One power plant will have a net nameplate capacity of 50MW. The scalable master planned development will be rolled out in 50MW increments, with total resources that will produce over 500MW of base-load Geothermal Energy per annum. CTR has developed proprietary technology that is well suited to the hostile Salton Sea conditions. The “Hot Rod” is an in-ground heat exchanger that produces high quality productive steam; which is isolated from the contaminated geothermal fluids. The Hot Rod will be incorporated within the development of traditional production and injection wells, further mitigating development and production risk. Minerals extraction is an integral part of CTR’s diversified development approach. CTR’s technology will efficiently extract the high minerals, salts and silica content from geothermal fluids, which contain: Lithium, Silica, Potassium, Strontium Manganese; and Zinc This alleviates the need for expensive plant and equipment utilized to treat the reservoir fluids prior to re-injection. CTR is reviewing the incorporation of solar installations above ground. This would produce around 400MW - 600MW of additional renewable energy per annum. The Salton Sea has an annual rainfall less than 4 inches, and the sun shines in excess of 100 degrees F all year round. Solar will mitigate dust and improve the environment, also allowing for peaking and on-demand capabilities operating as a co-generation plant.

Webinar - Better Engagement and Better Outcomes with PCOMS
PCOMS (the Partners for Change Outcome Management System) is a unique approach to supporting people who need help to thrive. In this free Community Research webinar, Robyn Pope and Laurie Siegel-Woodward outline the PCOMS approach and the research behind it, and share their learnings and experience of implementing PCOMS within social service agencies in Aotearoa. They describe the impact the system has had on service users, providers and organisations alike. We also hear from individuals who have experienced the PCOMS approach as clients. The webinar concludes with the direction of PCOMS in this country and offers resources for those interested in learning more about it. PCOMS gives people the power to set their own goals and measure their progress, as well as giving practitioners feedback on their practice, and providing organisations with data to develop and shape effective services. The PCOMS approach: • recognises that individuals are the experts in their own lives and therefore, their ideas about what could work for them should be incorporated into all aspects of work with that individual. • privileges the culture and ideas of the individual, to support them to discover their own unique solutions to the issues they are dealing with. • recognises the importance of the relationship between the individual and the practitioner working with them. • enables progress to be measured and addressed during each contact session. This means that any lack of improvement can be addressed quickly and transparently, which reduces drop-out. The stories from those experiencing PCOMS are powerful. They tell of being able to focus on progress, rather than being overwhelmed by a tangle of seemingly insurmountable problems. Practitioners learning to use PCOMS talk of their own journey from confusion and self-doubt, to focused interactions with their clients that led to profound change. Robyn Pope is the Manager Practice and Development at Wesley Community Action in Wellington New Zealand. She is an accredited trainer in the Strengths Based Framework and has been responsible for the implementation of this framework and PCOMS throughout Wesley Community Actions services. Robyn is a project leader with the Better Outcomes Now team. Laurie Siegel-Woodward is the Executive Director of the Partnering for Outcomes Foundation Aotearoa and director of Aliarah Ltd. Recognising PCOMS as both a quality improvement measure and an opportunity to privilege the culture of the client, Laurie advocates for its widespread use to reduce health disparities across New Zealanders and improve health outcomes.

Teaching Green Construction using LJ Create's eLearning Resources (US)
This Green Construction module from LJ Create ( http://LJCreate.com ) investigates the need to design and construct buildings using environmentally efficient methods and resources. It also explores the potential for reducing energy consumption and evaluates alternative forms of energy production on a micro generation scale. The module is centred around our unique ECO building. The model building has been specifically designed to allow the teacher to demonstrate the practical applications of a number of micro scale power generation and heating systems. The ECO building is intelligent and has its own electronic control and monitoring systems. In addition to the activities based on the ECO building, the module also covers: ...green construction materials, ...forces on structures, ...and beam and bridge designs. A series of dynamic software explorers allow students to investigate areas within green construction such as: ...energy use in a virtual house, ...designing and testing beams, ...and looking at how we can heat and cool buildings. The ECO building is a focus for group demonstrations and team investigations. Examples activities include: ...generating electricity using solar panels and a wind turbine, ...measuring the temperature gain of a fully working solar power water heating system, ...experimenting with how heat loss occurs in buildings and testing the effectiveness of insulation materials, ...comparing the efficiency of single and double glazing, ...and experimenting with a working model of an air-conditioning system. Other activities in the module require students to evaluate environmental characteristics of materials used in construction. They identify some examples of sustainable and recycled materials and how these are incorporated in modern construction. Using a variety of modelling materials, students construct and test structures. Example models include: ...bridges, ...skyscrapers, to identify the importance of a central core, ...various beam structures, to compare strengths, ...and reinforced beams, to test their benefits. Students face challenges that require them to draw on the knowledge and skills gained as they work through the curriculum. For example, they are challenged to build a model conservatory for use with the ECO house, taking into account energy efficiency and structural strength. The ready-made quality lessons supplied with this module help tutors introduce topics and allow students to go on and carry out investigations, independently and within teams. The learning content is designed for flexible delivery from a PC, server system or internet connection. Its html format meets the requirements of the SCORM standard for access on a virtual learning platform. It includes continuous and summative assessment for automatically tracking and marking students' progress. Theory presentations in PowerPoint, are used by tutors to introduce topics and cover key concepts. When used with a student response system, automatic tracking of the integrated questions, and instant feedback, helps engage and excite the students. This also saves valuable tutor time with automatic marking and reporting. Within the activities, students apply relevant scientific principles. They also perform mathematical calculations in the context of green construction technologies. This approach makes ST120 a great application for a STEM program.

The Richest Caveman - The Doug Batchelor Story
[Quoted From: http://prophecycode.com/about-speaker.asp ] Pastor Doug Batchelor As a teenager, Doug Batchelor had everything money could buy—everything but happiness. His search led him to drugs, fights, and suicidal fantasies, but he still was convinced that life held no purpose. Before his search ended, a cave in the hills above Palm Springs became his home, and he eventually had to scavenge for food in garbage bins. The happiness Doug wanted eluded him until the day he began reading the dust-covered Bible a fellow "searcher" had left in his cave. What happened next can only be described as a miracle! His down-to-earth approach to living the Christian life stems from his own experiences. Pastor Doug is now President and Speaker for Amazing Facts Ministries, an international evangelistic organization incorporated as a denominational television ministry within the North American Division territory. He is an energetic man of vision and deep spirituality with an unusual ability to communicate not only to church oriented people, but also to the millions of secular-minded people of today. He is the author of five books and has a wife, Karen, and five children. View Doug Batchelor's testimony!

Ladylike Charm: Your Study Smart Study Routine - 10 Study Smart Tips
Your guide to developing & using effective study habits to achieve your goals in an organized & steady pace. Including 10 study smart tips that can be incorporated into your own study routine that works best for you so you may be a responsible, focused, successful, & elegant student! :) Thank you lifeinablueworld for your wonderful video request! :) Click here for the Study Smart Tips printout!: https://goo.gl/MfnHZs When you are studying, whether it's simply doing a homework assignment or preparing for a big exam, completing your tasks whole-heartedly & on time will display the elegant, respectful & responsible student you are. Be sure to make yourself comfortable first, by setting up a study space where you will be most focused & productive. Also, minimize distractions, including electronics. Tell your friends & family that you will be studying for some time & that you appreciate their respect for your studies. Silence notifications & save the internet & social media until you have completed your work. Don't worry, everything will still be there when you return. :) Beginning to study in advanced will help you avoid procrastination & prevent cramming so you may study at a comfortable & steady pace & understand all of the material thoroughly to perform your very best on your studies. A great way to study at a steady pace is by using a planner to keep track of all your assignments, projects & exams & remember them. By keeping a planner, this will help you plan your study sessions & know how you will complete your assignments in an organized manner. This will give your studying direction & efficiency, so you will be less likely to be distracted or procrastinate. As you study consistently & at a comfortable pace, use your resources. Read over your notes before studying to refresh your memory & know how to complete the assignment correctly. One of the best ways to learn & understand material is to summarize it in your own words. Find a learning method that works best for you & practice it so you may understand the material well enough to explain it in your own words. Amongst all of your studying & learning, remember to take breaks for yourself regularly. Studying for countless hours without end is actually counterproductive. Study in short 30-50 minute periods with 10 minute breaks in between to go outside, eat a snack, drink water & simply relax. Then focus again. You deserve it.♥ Along with eating nutritious & delicious foods to keep your mind & body well fueled, it is also important to be getting enough rest. With a regular study schedule, procrastination will not be necessary & this will give you enough time to give your body the rest it needs. This way your mind & body will be well rested so you may be ready for your classes & exams & perform your very best. If you find yourself stuck on a problem or confused about a concept after studying for awhile, it may be time to try something else. Don't hesitate to ask your teachers for guidance or for a clearer explanation of a concept or idea. There's always room for improvement. Look for alternative sources of information such as websites, study guides or a classmate for assistance so you may fully understand the material & perform your very best on your studies. While studying, keep your mind focused on your goals. Approach your studies with a positive attitude. Think about your future & the goals you have set for yourself & put effort into achieving them! Set goals for every study session you have, that will support your overall academic goal & remind yourself of it every time you need that extra motivation. When you stay positive, your mind will be free to focus on your studies, rather than be consumed by negative thoughts so you will be more likely to perform better as you are confident in yourself & your knowledge. Keep this positive mindset during your exam. It's okay to feel a bit nervous, but feel more confident in knowing that if you have followed your study routine regularly & have been studying, there is nothing to worry about. Be calm, positive, confident & eager to achieve your goals & doing the best you can! :) After you've completed your assignment, exam or project, reward yourself! Whether it's celebrating with your friends or treating yourself to a relaxing spa day, the endless choices are up to you & you deserve it. Enjoy the rewarding feeling of being productive & completing your assignments with total effort! :) Don't get discouraged & don't give up. Keep doing your very best with all that you do & work toward achieving your goals little by little each day. :) ***A friendly reminder: You are capable of amazing things.

Collaborative Consumption: A Creative Approach to Business. Yvette Vingnando Interview
http://www.abn.org.au Yvette Vignando of happychild.com.au recently attended Kochie's Business Builder's Boot Camp in Sydney and spoke about her experience: "The highlight for me was the presentation on collaborative consumption." What is collaborative consumption? As a simple example, think of all the items in your home that you rarely use. A power drill, for instance, may be used for a total of 30 minutes throughout its ownership. Collaborative consumption focuses on usage rather than ownership. There are plenty of people who need to use a power drill for a few minutes but don't necessarily need to buy one. This trend is evolving not only in the consumer market but also in the business world. TaskRabbit.com is one example of a business build around collaborative consumption. Yvette explained the model: "People who don't want to go out and buy their dog food, or they don't want to assemble their Ikea furniture, put out a task online, and then people bid for the opportunity to run that task. There was a student on there who was earning six-thousand dollars a month just running tasks." GoGet CarShare is another example of a business that relies on collaborative consumption. According to the company's website, "GoGet gives you all the benefits of a car - without the hassle and expense." "Is there someone else who would like to use your car during the six hours a day that it sits in the driveway?" Yvette asked. This type of creative thinking has not only spawned new multi-million dollar businesses but has also allowed business to get creative with their resources. For example, not every business needs to buy an expensive printer or hire a copywriter. For some businesses, it just makes more sense to outsource printing and copywriting. Conversely, business may be able to generate additional revenue by outsourcing certain resources which are underutilized. "A lot of people don't realize they have things that other people want to use but don't necessarily want to own," said Yvette. "Our definitions of what's valuable are really changing, and the speaker [Rachel Botsman] was very inspiring. I love hearing about other people's business success stories and different ways of thinking about business." Botsman is the author of the book What's Mine is Yours: How Collaborative Consumption Is Changing The Way We Live. Collaborative Consumption was named by TIME magazine as one of the "10 Ideas That Will Change The World." Kochie's Business Builder's Boot Camp was supported by the Australian Businesswomen's Network.

Hadley argues that a guardianship system could effectively protect the rights of wild animals to resources in the territories they inhabit. In turn, the guardians of particular animals or a particular species could challenge land use plans that might threaten the ability of these animals to meet their basic needs. Though grounded in philosophical theory, Hadley’s focus is pragmatic. He is interested in producing an institutional design that could be effectively incorporated into policy and practice. His proposal also aims to solve some key problems in wildlife conservation. It bridges the seemingly divergent interests of environmentalists focused on the protection of the collective (e.g., ecosystems) and those of animal rights proponents focused on the survival of individuals. Here, common ground is found in habitat protection, a shared value that reconciles the differences between these groups. Hadley’s proposal also ensures animals become vocal stakeholders in land use and conservation initiatives, able to compete with agendas that might be incompatible with animal or habitat protection. It also begins to overcome the anthropocentrism that (perhaps inevitably) pervades conservation practice. By determining animal property rights boundaries on the basis of territorial behavior, Hadley’s proposal privileges animal actions and interactions over human-centric interests. Although their rights would be advocated by a human guardian in a person-centered legal system, if implemented, this theory would ensure the interests of wild animals are taken seriously. This is a book of critical relevance to those interested in issues of human-wildlife conflict, biodiversity protection, and human/nonhuman relationships. --- Sources and Links --- https://www.amazon.co.uk/Animal-Property-Rights-Habitat-Animals/dp/0739189255 https://search.proquest.com/openview/436f51f605516e44a5f87db05a7172a6/1?pq-origsite=gscholar&cbl=55441 https://york.academia.edu/JoshMilburn --- Platforms --- https://www.facebook.com/NewBooksNetwork/ https://twitter.com/newbooksnetwork --- Subscribe, download, review on iTunes, Stitcher, PlayerFM or Podbean to listen on the go --- https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/new-books-in-environmental-studies/id425223410?mt=2 https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/new-books-network https://player.fm/series/new-books-network https://www.podbean.com/podcast-detail/gsijp-3fd4c/New-Books-Network-Podcast

2018 ASCE LID Conference Nashville Lunch time Key Note  -  Troy Brockbank
Stormwater360 Design Manager's key note address at the 2018 ASCE LID confrence. CULTURALLY ENHANCED WATER SENSITIVE DESIGN. The majority of Aotearoa New Zealand’s population is concentrated along coastal communities, or within low lying floodplains. Sea level rise, more frequent extreme rainfall events, and increased flood events have been identified as severe risks to these communities. Climate change is a real and major problem for New Zealand. The existing stormwater infrastructure is particularly vulnerable to climate change as discharge outfalls are often close to sea level. Sea level rise is continuing to affect our infrastructure by increasingly submerging existing pipe reticulation and significantly reducing capacity. Small changes in rainfall extremes attributed with climate change, including intensity and duration, can further overwhelm the original design capacity of the infrastructure. One option to addressing this issue would be to implement complimentary water sensitive design solutions, that can be easily overlaid and retrofitted on top of the existing stormwater network to free up capacity and address public concerns. The economic, social, amenity and environmental values of water sensitive design are widely understood; often seen in practice and well documented. However, cultural involvement and indigenous knowledge incorporated within these core values, either as a stand alone value or delicately weaved throughout, are often considered as a ‘last minute addition’, whilst at other times it seems they are being ignored completely. The indigenous Māori culture recognises that environmental management has integral links with the mauri (wellbeing) of the environment and concepts of kaitiakitanga (guardianship). Te Ao Māori (Māori worldview) further promotes stewardship and protection of these resources, through the intrinsic relationship of people to water, and Te Tai Ao (the natural environment). Integrating core water sensitive design values with mātauranga Māori (indigenous knowledge) and principles of tikanga Māori (traditional indigenous practices) would provide a holistic culturally enhanced approach to water management. This would be to the benefit of the wider environment (people and natural) as it prioritises the mauri of the community, and their surroundings. This would ensure that cultural and social outcomes are not diminished as a result of monetary focused cost-benefit analysis. Whilst this approach may be considered different, a holistic culturally enhanced water sensitive design approach can be a successful, long-term solution to the effects of climate change. An example could be the importance of Kaimoana (seafood) to Māori. Continued water degradation has had a negative impact on the health and wellbeing of downstream mahinga kai (food gathering place). The inability of Māori to continue the longstanding food gathering tradition has lasting impacts to their overall cultural and social wellbeing. However introducing mechanisms to undo the degradation in a manner that not only consider these downstream uses, but also incorporates mātauranga Māori within the solution itself, has positive effects that go beyond water management.

The Late Neolithic in Southern Bavaria – a GIS based approach
Stephanie E. Metz LUDWIG-MAXIMILIANS-UNIVERSITY MUNICH The so called Münchshöfener Culture (dating from ca. 4600–3800 BC) is mainly distributed across the Upper Danube and its southern contributing streams. Little is known about settlement structures, function of causewayed enclosures and burial practices. This is not only a matter of state of research, but mainly due to the lack of published data. Thus in this study all registered sites are systematically assembled via the digital archives (Fachinformationssystem/FIS) provided by the Bavarian State Conservation Office (BLfD). Further published sites located outside of Bavaria are also incorporated. This data set is analysed with GIS methodologies in order to gain an idea about the cultural interactions between the Münchshöfener Culture's population and its environment. The distribution of different types of archaeological sites lead to tendencies that show zones of potential socio-economic activity. Visibility maps should help to evaluate the relation between burials and settlement features. Accessibility maps regarding least-cost path analyses including natural resources such as flint stones and copper should deliver information about economic processes. Stratified pollen data can also be taken into account for estimating the past vegetation composition respectively the past cultural landscape. This paper aims to shed light on the Münchshöfener Culture's settlement structures using GIS based techniques but also focuses on the understanding of the potential and limitations of spatial analysis.
"the 101" Episode 5: How does malware actually work?
Last week we started our discussion about malware by breaking down its major types. These distinctions are important because they help us craft the right strategies for defending ourselves; namely how we prioritize our time, money, and resources. But when it comes to tactics, we need to have a better sense of how malware works so we know how to defend ourselves.

Mars, No Go For Red Dragon, SpaceX rethinks Red Dragon Mars Mission
Mars no go for Red Dragon SpaceX rethinks Red Dragon Mars mission Musk won’t be sending Red Dragon 2 Mars. In his recent statement Elon Musk when asked about Red Dragon Mars mission which is scheduled for 2020, confirmed long suspicions that Red Dragon 2020 Mars mission is no go. During a speech at the International Space Station Research and Development Conference, Musk confirmed that the company is no longer working to land Dragon propulsively for commercial crew. SpaceX had maintained that in future crew contracts with NASA, it would use Dragon's thrusters to land on land. "The reason we decided not to pursue that heavily is that it would have taken a tremendous amount of effort to qualify that for safety for crew transport," "There was a time when I thought the Dragon approach to landing on Mars, where you've got a base heat shield and side mounted thrusters, would be the right way to land on Mars. But now I'm pretty confident that is not the right way." Musk added that his company has come up with a "far better" approach to landing on Mars that will be incorporated into the next iteration of the company's proposed Mars transportation hardware. Musk laid out an initial version of this "Interplanetary Transport System" in 2016, but he has said an updated architecture is coming soon. Perhaps at the 2017 International Astronautical Conference in Adelaide, Australia. The event will be held from September 25 to 29. The new Mars architecture will be "more affordable" and slightly smaller, Musk said. Although initial plan for Interplanetary Transport seemed doable, it just couldn’t be done on the budget Elon proposed. The revised plan should prove at least financially, a success, we are yet to see what SpaceX plans to do in that regard. Elon Musk is realizing, sending humans to Mars won’t be easy or cheap, and even though he has some ideas how to get us there, he’s nowhere near technically able to deliver his vision. NASA was trying to send humans to Mars for past 30 years and NASA has far greater technological and scientific resources than SpaceX. Yet they struggle! These delays will undoubtedly delay first manned mission to Mars, perhaps 2030 seems most optimistic timeframe now.

You Have the Right to Remain Silent – California Bill Strengthens Miranda for Kids
Take Action: http://fairsentencingforyouth.org/miranda-rights-for-youth/ Currently in California, children—no matter how young— can waive their Miranda rights. When law enforcement conducts a custodial interrogation, they are required to recite basic constitutional rights to the individual, known as Miranda rights, and secure a waiver of those rights before proceeding. The waiver must be voluntarily, knowingly, and intelligently made. Miranda waivers by juveniles present distinct issues. Recent advances in cognitive science research have shown that the capacity of youth to grasp legal rights is less than that of an adult. This is especially true for very young, developmentally disabled, or cognitively delayed children, and for those with mental health problems.

Scenario Planning
This video will provide you with a brief overview of scenario planning. It will also share some of the resources that we, the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), offer to agencies interested in conducting scenario planning. Scenario planning is a technique that helps assess and prepare for possible future conditions. Each scenario tells a different, plausible story about the future. Using input from the public and other stakeholders, agencies can create scenarios that incorporate a wide variety of factors, such as housing, employment, socioeconomic trends, environmental features, vehicle miles traveled, and others. The specific factors incorporated in scenarios will depend on what the agency hopes to accomplish in its scenario planning effort. By creating several different scenarios, agencies can better assess what might occur in the future for a given region or area. As a result, agencies are able to make more informed decisions about how to plan for the future. More information about our workshops, Webinars, and other scenario planning resources are available on FHWA's Scenario Planning Web site at: www.fhwa.dot.gov/planning/scenplan/index.htm [CLOSED CAPTIONED]

We start out with the Amiga 500 and the UK Batman Pack, before moving on through the further developments, staff changes, The Commodore CDTV, Amiga 500+, Amiga 600, Amiga CD32, Amiga 1200, Amiga 4000, Amiga 3000 and the later models and revisions. We go through the peak of Commodore and the Amiga and it's downfall and the various factors which influenced its fall from grace.
