Stephan T. Lavavej - Core C++, 4 of n | C9 Lectures: Stephan T. Lavavej - Core C++ In part 4, Stephan teaches us about Virtual Functions. In parts 1-3, we learned about compile-time constructs. Now, we enter the realm of runtime. STL spends some time discussing inheritance and a bit about access control. Tune in. Learn.

21L.455 Classical Literature: The Golden Age of Augustan Rome (MIT)
Roman Literature of the Golden Age of Augustus Caesar, produced during the transition from Republican to Imperial forms of government, was to have a profound and defining influence on Western European and American societies. These writings ultimately established lasting models of aesthetic refinement, philosophical aspiration, and political ambition that continue to shape modern cultures. This class will be exploring the Golden Age of Latin Literature from an historical perspective in
Stabilizing a Vehicle Near Rollover: an Analogy to Cart-Pole Stabilization This video contains animations of the two simulation results described in a conference paper presented at ICRA 2010. The results show tip-up of a vehicle on a surface with two different friction coefficients. In the first simulation, the surface friction coefficient is 1.5, and the c.g. lies in the friction cone from the start. As such, it is able to reach tip-up while pushing in a single direction. In the second simulation, the surface friction coefficient is 1.0,

Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended
Pecos Bill 2 of 3
The classic Disney cartoon, from American Heroes. Pecos Bill is a legendary American Cowboy, apocryphally immortalized in numerous tall tales of the Old West during American westward expansion into the Southwest of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. This is a three part video. Video is of average quality, but story is an old favorite. Video is appropriate for preschool and early elementary school children.
"The Talking Eggs" by Robert San Souciis used to introduce and illustrate an author's use of language to paint a picture in the reader's mind. Students will draw a picture to show what this author meant, create similes to describe themselves, and finally use a simile in their next story in Writer's Workshop.

Climate Change 2010: Where do we go from here?
Over the past few months, the climate change challenge has taken some odd twists and turns. The COP15 meeting in Copenhagen was widely condemned in the press as a failure; the Australian Government has been unable to get its emission trading scheme through the Senate; Europe and North America have been hit by cold and snowy winters; and there has been a surge in public attacks on the veracity of climate change science. What is going on? This talk focuses on the post-Copenhagen climate - both phy
Cómo se inventó la televisión
El ingeniero John Logie Baird inventó la televisión en 1926. Antes había intentado copiar el sistema de ondas electromagnéticas de la radio, pero los inversores no lo apoyaron. Aunque le costó más de lo que esperaba consiguió revolucionar el mundo de las telecomunicaciones gracias a la televisión. Este vídeo explica cómo surgió este invento. (1:49)
