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.

Okay, so what is a robot? Per definition of en.wikipedia.org, the Holder of All Human Knowledge, a robot is: a mechanical device that can perform physical tasks. A robot may act under the direct control of a human (eg. the robotic arm of the space shuttle) or autonomously under the control of a pre-programmed computer. In the context of Science Olympiad and other small engineering competitions, we are looking at the first type, human control. There are plenty of opportunities to put autonomous features into a Science Olympiad robot, but if you are reading this for content, it is likely beyond your scope and unnecessary. Therefore, for the purposes of this text only, a robot will be defined as: A mechanical device, operated under the direct control of a human, that is engineered to perform a specific task or accomplish a goal. In this case, the goal is to compete in Science Olympiad's Robot Ramble event. And win. More on that later. I'm not smart enough to build a robot! Yes you are. Modern technology has developed to the point at which it permeates our lives. One side effect of this is that it is much easier to learn and try out than in years past. The hobby robotics market is only increasing, and there are a number of companies that specifically make products catered to robots and their builders. Full directions and kits are available to build or program small robots. In some cases, they're even premade, and all you have to do is mess with them. This is often the best way to go about learning.
Guía para el Consumidor ¿Qué es un número gratuito y cómo funciona? Antecedentes Los números gratuitos (toll free numbers, en inglés) son números que comienzan con uno de los siguientes códigos de tres dígitos: 800, 888, 877, 866, 855 y 844. Los números gratuitos permiten, a quienes llaman, contactarse con empresas o individuos sin tener que pagar por esas llamadas. El costo del uso de un número gratuito es financiado por la parte que recibe la llamada (el suscriptor del número gratuito) en lugar de la parte que llama. A través de los números gratuitos, es posible efectuar llamadas directamente a su empresa o a su línea directa personal. Los números gratuitos son muy comunes y han probado ser una eficiente herramienta de negocios, particularmente en las áreas de servicios al consumidor y de telemercadeo. El servicio de llamadas gratuitas ofrece a clientes potenciales y a otras partes una vía gratuita y conveniente de contacto con las empresas que cuentan con dicho servicio. Códigos para llamadas gratuitas – 800, 888, 877, 866, 855 y 844 En la actualidad, hay seis códigos de llamadas gratuitas: 800, 888, 877, 866, 855 y 844. Aunque los números 800, 888, 877, 866, 855 y 844 son códigos para llamadas gratuitas, estos no son intercambiables. El 1-800-234-5678 no es lo mismo que el 1-888-234-5678. Las llamadas efectuadas a cada uno de estos números son dirigidas a números telefónicos locales, específicos. ¿Cómo se asignan los números gratuitos? Los números gratuitos son asignados en orden de llegada por entidades conocidas como “Entidades Responsables” (“Responsible Organizations” o “RespOrgs”, en inglés). Estas entidades pueden ser compañías telefónicas, aunque no siempre lo son.

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;
