Atoms of the same element that have different numbers of neutrons are called isotopes. Most carbon on Earth exists as the very stable isotope carbon-12, with a very small amount as carbon-13.
Here’s an example using the simplest atom, hydrogen. Carbon-14 is an unstable isotope of carbon that will eventually decay at a known rate to become carbon-12.
anything and everything that can help improve the living environment of human beings. And yet, this field attracts the most creative and romantic minds in the world. The work of an Architect one of the most challenging and enjoyable imaginable. Its not just about reading and writing all the time, but you must have a hands-on approach on many assignments. Architecture may sound like a 9 to 5 office job, but its not. Even as a student of Architecture, you get to work on real-life problems of designing functional buildings.
Building scale models, making surveys, talking to people… If you like to hit the road every now and then, you’re in for some luck. You have to put your feet on the ground, and visit construction sites.
And what could be the compromises and trade-offs an Architecture student might have to make to achieve success? Architecture is a very satisfying profession You’ll get a tremendous sense of delight after your concepts on paper transform into real buildings. Unlike traditional colleges where you must slog yourself in study halls and libraries, reading and writing all the time, a course in Architecture gives you the liberty to use the right side of your brain, the creative part. Once you get through the course and pass out with good grades, you’d be pursued by large firms looking for fresh talent and new ideas.
My intention here is to show as wide a selection of old photographs as I can find in order to present a rounded picture of the immediate past of Qatar by the addition of what I hope will be an appropriate commentary.
These photographs are a relatively limited resource at present, but I’m sure that, with time, more will become available and, if relevant, posted here.
These two pages illustrate something of the older buildings and associated development in Qatar.
They might usefully be read in association with the page looking at the history of the peninsula.
