Leo Marx, in his famous 1964 book, “The Machine in the Garden,” proposed that a central conflict in the American psyche resulted from the industrialization of the unspoiled, Eden-like landscapes of the new world. Wright’s Organic Modernism perhaps allowed 20th-century Americans to unconsciously feel that they could “resolve" that conflict by living in harmony with nature, while International Style Modernism and its machine-like buildings perhaps pointed too directly to the tragedy of industrial capitalism’s despoiling of the environment.
List of plant species recognized as invasive in the Midwest Invasive Plant Network (MIPN), and either regulated or informational. Shown are their method of introduction (intentional vs. accidental), and if intentional, whether it be introduced by ornamental, erosion control, feed/fodder/crops, aquarium trade, and/or medicinal or culinary uses. This was determined from a review of online sources and the scientific literature, and comparison to the dissertation by Sarah Reichard (1994).
More than half of the United States workforce is now working outside of the office and 15% face daily connectivity issues. HomeNetCheck is a tool for users and remote support technicians to help better diagnose network issues which would otherwise be difficult to address remotely. Technology departments need a tool that can analyze a user’s machine and network before relaying that information to remote technicians. HomeNetCheck will collect system and network information for a remote user and then display that information in an easy to view format online with little action from the user. Information that is collected for each host during the support will be stored for future use to help diagnose similar problems that may occur.
