CCCS: Comparison and Ethics
Through discussion of the conceptual metaphor of facing a crossroads, Professor Zhang Longxi of City University of Hong Kong will first establish the necessity of comparison in a general sense, and then will use another conceptual metaphor of killing a Chinese mandarin to explore the ethics of comparison, the issue of the relationship with one’s own group versus relationship, or the lack of it, with outsiders and strangers. As the world becomes increasingly globalized, the physical and psychol

This video segment adapted from NOVA examines ethanol, a cleaner-burning fuel alternative to gasoline, and the efforts to produce it more efficiently. Today, most ethanol in the United States is made from corn kernels. But converting corn into ethanol requires lots of energy as well as corn, which might otherwise be used to feed people and livestock. The video features research efforts to use less valuable plant matter, called cellulosic biomass, and microorganisms that may be able to accomplish

The two-year MSc programme in BioMedical Engineering at TU Delft is based on a long history of training and research within three collaborating faculties: Applied Sciences; Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science; and Mechanical, Marine and Materials Engineering. BME know-how in these has led to a broad BME programme. Clinically driven research is also a central theme in the programme. There is close collaboration with clinical partners at Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC
The Science Behind Appetite
This video segment, adapted from NOVA, documents a ballerina's experience with a potentially deadly eating disorder: anorexia nervosa. Research suggests that a brain chemical called serotonin plays a prominent role in regulating appetite—a key factor in eating disorders. The disruption of serotonin levels by dietary changes can lead to a vicious cycle that prolongs the disorder. By restoring nutrition to her diet, however, the dancer in the video is tackling her eating disorder and resuming he
