Hilfsorganisationen in Deutschland
Iets meer vertellen over de hulpdiensten in Duitsland.
She started drawing at age 4, painting at 6, and writing poetry at 7. Now, Akiane Kramarik is one of the most sought after young artists of her time -- selling works for thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars. Akiane says she was taught by God. She's gained fame appearing on CNN and the Oprah Winfrey Show. In this Conversations, we talk with this gifted teenager about her art, her inspiration, and how she is using her craft to help others instead of just get rich.
20.462J Molecular Principles of Biomaterials (MIT)
This course covers the analysis and design at a molecular scale of materials used in contact with biological systems, including biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Topics include molecular interactions between bio- and synthetic molecules and surfaces; design, synthesis, and processing approaches for materials that control cell functions; and application of state-of-the-art materials science to problems in tissue engineering, drug delivery, vaccines, and cell-guiding surfaces.

7.90J Computational Functional Genomics (MIT)
The course focuses on casting contemporary problems in systems biology and functional genomics in computational terms and providing appropriate tools and methods to solve them. Topics include genome structure and function, transcriptional regulation, and stem cell biology in particular; measurement technologies such as microarrays (expression, protein-DNA interactions, chromatin structure); statistical data analysis, predictive and causal inference, and experiment design. The emphasis is on coup

As You Like It at Two River Theater
Everyone knows, or has at least heard, this famous line: “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” It’s from Shakespeare’s romantic comedy "As You Like It," which is running through February 16th at Two River Theater in Red Bank. Christopher Benincasa recently sat down with director Michael Sexton to talk about his fresh, modern take on the play, and what it has to say to us in 2014 – more than four centuries after it was written.
7.342 Systems Biology: Stochastic Processes and Biological Robustness (MIT)
In this seminar, we will discuss some of the main themes that have arisen in the field of systems biology, including the concepts of robustness, stochastic cell-to-cell variability, and the evolution of molecular interactions within complex networks. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological researc
New Model for Juvenile Justice
A 7 minute video summarizing Missour;s new approach to juvenile justice. This new method for juvenile detention has seen surprisingly successful results, trading in the orange uniforms and cell blocks for therapists and dorm rooms.
African-Americans in the American Civil War
Learn about the contribution of African-Americans to the American civil war in this seven-minute video. Included are several vintage photos of the men in uniforms.
7.341 The DNA Damage Response as a Target for Anti-Cancer Therapy (MIT)
Cellular responses to DNA damage constitute one of the most important fields in cancer biology. In this class we will analyze classical and recent papers from the primary research literature to gain a profound understand of cell cycle regulation and DNA damage checkpoints that act as powerful emergency brakes to prevent cancer. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using pr
X-ray tomography image of open cell polyurethane foam
If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides. The average co-ordination number for the nodes (where struts meet) is four, giving tetrahedral junctions. The deformation behaviour of the foam was observed by X-ray microtomography at the ESRF i
Mapping and Its Discontents: Katharine Harmon, Rebecca Solnit, Dana Cuff
Katharine Harmon at 6:47 Rebecca Solnit at 29:08 Dana Cuff at 53:05 Maps are also a form of narrative and a form of art. In this video, Katharine Harmon, author of The Map as Art, discusses how narrative contents create maps, and set up the vocabulary of maps. ""Maps come when narrative is not enough, or the opposite, narrative comes when the map is not enough."" Rebecca Solnit, author of Unfathomable City and Infinite City, discusses the making of maps as a way of knowing places. ""I love maps

If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides, and some remnants of collapsed cell walls can be seen at the cell edges.
The Stuff of Genius: Copier
Before the invention of the modern copier, companies across the world
depended on time-consuming -- and, often, incorrect -- duplication
methods. This 2:20 video explains how the copier was invented and also how the inventor worked hard to develop this invention.
18.417 Introduction to Computational Molecular Biology (MIT)
This course introduces the basic computational methods used to understand the cell on a molecular level. It covers subjects such as the sequence alignment algorithms: dynamic programming, hashing, suffix trees, and Gibbs sampling. Furthermore, it focuses on computational approaches to: genetic and physical mapping; genome sequencing, assembly, and annotation; RNA expression and secondary structure; protein structure and folding; and molecular interactions and dynamics.
