The Rhode Island College Early Enrollment Program is a concurrent enrollment program that offers college credit at Rhode Island College to high school students for certain courses which they take at their respective high schools. The EEP provides the means for high school students to get a head start in college by obtaining college credits at Rhode Island College and transferring those credits to the institution that they attend. The EEP is also a formal program that fosters communication between high school teachers and college professors and creates an educational relationship between the high school and the college communities. For a detailed explanation of the Rhode Island College Early Enrollment Program, transferring of credits, and/or other important information, please call the EEP office at 456-8857 or email us at email@example.com. NACEP, the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships, of which Rhode Island College is a charter member, provides guidelines and standards to which concurrent enrollment programs must adhere to maintain membership. It is the adherence to these standards that maintains credibility and excellence among programs such as the EEP and will assure its students credit transfer among many colleges and universities in the United States. The primary purpose of this manual is to document formally the policies and guidelines which govern the workings of the Early Enrollment Program at Rhode Island College to provide a clear understanding for all parties involved.

Child Safety Protect your child by installing a child seat engineered to survive crash forces. Unlike your arms, it’s the safest method available for child protection in a car accident. 2012 ACADIA/ACADIA DENALI We have tried to make this brochure as comprehensive as possible. However, we reserve the right to make changes at any time, without notice, in colors, materials, equipment, specifications, option packages and model availability. As some information may have been updated since the time of printing, please check with your GM dealer for complete details. FIND THE RIGHT SEAT • Use an infant-only seat for infants up to 14 kg. Keep it rear-facing and semi-reclined. Be sure the harness comes from slots at or below the baby’s shoulders and is snug when buckled. • Use your convertible child seat in a forward-facing and upright position for toddlers and children between 14 and 30 kg. Be sure the harness straps are coming from above the child’s shoulders. • For children between 30 and 45 kg use a belt-positioning-booster seat. • Children over 46 kg must pass the safety-belt-fit criteria before wearing a normal car safety belt. • Knees should bend naturally at the edge of the seat. • The lap belt should sit low on the hips. • The shoulder part of the seatbelt should rest on the shoulder or collarbone. • The child should be able to maintain this position for the length of your trip. NEVER DO THIS ALWAYS DO THIS ALWAYS REMEMBER • Place all children under 13 in a back seat. • Never place a rear-facing child seat in front of an airbag. • Use a child seat for all children until they can safely wear the adult seatbelt. • Be sure you have one seatbelt for every person. • NEVER place the shoulder belt under the arm or behind the back. • Be sure all child seats are locked into the car using the LATCH system or the seatbelt.
O SolidWorks® Electrical simplifica a criação de esquemas elétricos com uma interface intuitiva para o projeto mais rápido de sistemas elétricos integrados. A integração bidirecional em tempo real com o SolidWorks CAD 3D aumenta a colaboração e a produtividade, o que resulta em menos atrasos de produtos, projetos mais consistentes e padronizados, custos mais baixos e maior rapidez no lançamento ao mercado. Crie projetos de chicote orientados por esquema com recursos poderosos de roteamento, nivelamento e documentação automatizada. Os esquemas do SolidWorks Electrical integram-se com os modelos do SolidWorks 3D para assegurar a total simultaneidade do projeto eletromecânico. Modernize seu projeto de sistema elétrico No mundo complexo de projetos eletromecânicos, criar sistemas elétricos utilizando a tecnologia CAD 3D pode ser uma tarefa complexa e difícil. O desenvolvimento de elementos de projeto e a definição da interconexão elétrica de fios, cabos e chicotes muitas vezes são trabalhosos e propensos a erros. O desenvolvimento elétrico do CAD 3D tem sido feito tipicamente com o intercâmbio de dados do projeto através de arquivos externos e projetos manuais. O uso de arquivos externos pode fazer com que projetos elétricos e mecânicos não fiquem sincronizados e resultem em descontinuidades no projeto, na fabricação e na cadeia de suprimentos. As práticas atuais também não facilitam a colaboração entre as disciplinas do projeto.
4-H Indoor Gardening Project: Making a Desert Dish Garden Prepared by Madge Balden Adams, former special assignment writer for Horticulture Evaporation is slowed down by protective coverings of wax or hairs or by a reduced surface area. (Many succulent plants have a spherical shape because a sphere has the smallest surface area for a given volume.) Succulents grow naturally in semi-deserts where long, dry periods are broken by short, rainy periods. Cacti are one kind of succulent. What to Do Materials Plants With just a few essentials, a few minutes, and your creativity, you can make a desert dish garden. All you need are some cacti or other slow-growing succulent plants, a shallow dish, and sand. That’s it. And the best part is that your garden in a dish will last for years with very little care. Succulents raised in dish gardens are even easier to care for than are single specimens. Fertilization is not needed because you do not want the plants to outgrow the container. You can buy cacti and other succulent plants from a ﬂorist or at a garden store that has a plant section. Choose plants of different sizes and shapes that will go well together to make an interesting garden. Choose plants that are in scale with the container you plan to use. Select small plants that grow slowly. Plants should ﬁll the container but not crowd it. Some suitable plants are:...

Design visualization is at the heart of Morgan Motor Company’s development process C harles Morgan of legendary British car manufacturer, Morgan Motor Company, says his favorite Morgan car is the one that hasn’t been built yet. And he sees a lot of these. With Autodesk software running on HP Z Workstations with NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla GPUs, Morgan’s design department produces stunning visualizations of multiple new car designs before they are even built. “In the same amount of time it previously would have taken us to create one visual, we’re able to make many much higher quality visuals and do several different proposals,” says Jon Wells, senior designer, Morgan Motor Company, who uses NVIDIA iray, the GPU-accelerated renderer in 3ds Max Design, to produce photorealistic renderings. “When we’re doing iray renderings, we can render some fantastically beautiful outcomes almost in real-time,” he explains. “As we turn the model, we can capture a shot of what that would look like rendered up. We can spin it again and see that again in a different guise.” Wells heads up a team of designers who together with the engineering team present new formal design reviews to Morgan’s directors and shareholders. Doing this in an interactive 3D environment inside Autodesk Showcase pays big dividends. “We’re all putting across our ideas and we have to do this concisely and accurately. The best piece of equipment we have in our arsenal to do this is the new Z1 Workstation from HP,” he says. “When paired with a NVIDIA Quadro graphics card, we’re able to show ideas in great speed and accuracy, spin around 3D models on a very high definition, high-resolution screen. The people can really fully get to understand what it is that we’ve been working on. “Everyone gathers around and we pitch and we talk and we present our ideas. And everyone leaves, I believe, with a great understanding of what the final project’s going to look like, even though they’ve not spent any of their money yet.” www.morgan-motor.co.uk
In recent years, tourism has been increasingly recognised for its economic potential to contribute to the reduction of poverty in developing countries. Its geographical expansion and labour intensive nature support a spread of employment and can be particularly relevant in remote and rural areas, where live three quarters of the two billion people under extreme poverty conditions. Statistics show that tourism in LDCs is still limited: 2.6% of the world market share in terms of international tourist arrivals (ITAs) and of international tourism receipts (ITRs). However, the growth in ITAs has been faster in LDCs than in the developing countries as a whole: 42.5% in the former and 30.8% in the latter between 2001 and 2005 (15.8% for the world). Also in terms of ITRs: 50.3% growth in LDCs and 40.6% in the developing world between 2001 and 2004 (33.2% for the world). There are several reasons that make tourism an especially suitable economic development sector for LDCs1: 1. Tourism is consumed at the point of production; the tourist has to go to the destination and spend his/her money there, opening an opportunity for local businesses of all sorts, and allowing local communities to benefit through the informal economy, by selling goods and services directly to visitors; 2. Most LDCs have a comparative advantage in tourism over developed countries. They have assets of enormous value to the tourism industry - culture, art, music, natural landscapes, wildlife and climate, including World Heritage Sites. Visits by tourists to such sites can generate employment and income for communities as well as helping in the conservation of cultural and natural assets; 3. Tourism is a more diverse industry than many others. It has the potential to support other economic activities, both through providing flexible, part time jobs that can complement other livelihood options, and through creating income throughout a complex supply chain of goods and services;
