Al-90 wt% Cu (bronze)
This is a copper-aluminium bronze containing 10 wt% aluminium. A small amount of iron is often added to act as a grain refiner to improve the mechanical properties. Alloys with more than 8 wt% aluminium solidify as the β phase. Below about 930°C, Widmanstätten α phase precipitates. At the eutectoid temperature (565°C) the remaining β decomposes to a lamellar eutectoid of α and β. Rapid cooling from the high temperature β phase can form martensite instead of Widmanstätten α.

From the Heart
This video segment describes how the chambers of the heart contract and relax in synchrony to push blood through the pulmonary and systemic loops of the circulatory system. You'll see how the heart pumps oxygen-depleted blood to the lungs, where red blood cells acquire oxygen before travelling back to the heart and then on to the rest of the body. The video is nice illustration of how the circulatory and respiratory systems work together to carry in oxygen and remove waste.  Closed captioning i

Battlefield: The Battle of Midway (1/12)
In June 1942, the most decisive naval battle of WWII was fought between the United States of America and the Japanese empire. Waged entirely of aircraft carriers, hundreds of miles apart, the Battle of Midway was the first major fleet encounter in which the ships on each side never came within visual range of enemy vessels. Victory or defeat depended not on the big guns of battleships, but on the carrier born bombers and torpedo bombers flying over vast tracks of ocean to seek and destroy their

Roosevelt Corollary To the Monroe Doctrine
This video is accompanied by text. "Around the turn of the twentieth century, Latin American nations began defaulting on massive loans from European powers such as Germany and England. Many of these “Banana Republics,” including Venezuela and the Dominican Republic, had borrowed heavily and had no way or intention of repaying their debts. This issue came to the forefront in 1903, when German warships sank two Venezuelan vessels and bombarded a Venezuelan town. Their intention was to intimida

Microanatomy of the Lungs
Presented here is the microanatomy of the lungs and its components. The video shows an animated lung while a narrator explains the various parts labeled on the screen.  "Alveolar sacs are the terminal portions of the breathing tube system. Composed of up to thirty tiny air pouches, or alveoli, they provide a lung a total surface area of about 850 square feet for the exchange of gases. Terminal bronchioles carry air to and from alveolar sacs. Cells lining bronchiole walls bear cilia---minute ha

3D Animation of a Heart Attack
This 3d medical animation illustrates the story of a heart attack from a blocked coronary artery due to th inflammation of blood vessels. Beginning with damage to the endothelial arterial wall, the animation shows how a white blood cell entering the wall of the artery changes into a macrophage, grabbing and digesting cholesterol. As the cell does its job, it transforms into a foam cell, which, unfortunately, becomes part of the plaque within the blood vessel wall. Ultimately, over a period of

"Hiawatha's Photographing" by Lewis Carroll (poetry reading)
Many of Lewis Carroll's parodies are so good that the originals are now forgotten. Hiawatha, though, is too robust for that. What this parody shows is that the verse form works even better as comedy. http://people.virginia.edu/~ds8s/carroll/hia.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_Carroll "Lunar caustic" is silver nitrate.

Auburn vs. Louisiana Tech (1947)
"With the first of six conference games just one week away, the tigers were forced to go all out to defeat a stubborn Louisiana Tech team in the annual "Homecoming" game. With the Tech Line playing the Plainsmen off their feet during the first half, some of 11,000 students and "old grads" watched the Voyles- coached eleven come back with two touchdowns in the last half to clinch the game.

"With the "War Eagle" Ringing to the skies, the Tigers opened the season with a night game against Southern.
