How is Glass Made?
This video is used at the Columbus Museum of Art to show how glass can change from solid to fluid and back again. The artists at Jason Antol Studios in Columbus, Ohio, graciously performed the demonstrations on camera. Several questions are presented throughout the video and a 10-second on-screen countdowns allow the viewer a chance to answer each question. The video is presented with background music. (04:38)
"Hope is a Tattered Flag" Poem by Carl Sandburg
The words of the poem "Hope is a Tattered Flag" by Carl Sandburg are flashed too quickly on screen, with carefully-selected still color and black-and-white photographs. Non-narrated, with piano accompaniment. (1:32)
14.04.2012 – Langsam gesprochene Nachrichten
Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei. Die Entsendung einer Beobachtermission der Vereinten Nationen zur Überwachung der Waffenruhe nach Syrien verzögert sich. Russland stellte sich im UN-Sicherheitsrat gegen eine von westlichen und arabischen Staaten formulierte Resolution. Moskaus UN-Botschafter Witali Tschurkin meinte, es müsse alles herausgestrichen werden, was für diesen besonderen Zwe
7.16 Experimental Molecular Biology: Biotechnology II (MIT)
The course applies molecular biology and reverse genetics approaches to the study of apoptosis, or programmed cell death (PCD), in Drosophila cells. RNA interference (RNAi), or double stranded RNA-mediated gene silencing, will be used to inhibit expression of candidate apoptosis-related genes in cultured Drosophila cells. Teams of 2 or 3 students will design and carry out experiments to address questions about the genes involved in the regulation and execution of PCD in this system. Some project
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.

Newsreel - Kennedy Inspects Missile Center [11-18-1963]
News broadcast of President Kennedy viewing a missile launching demonstration at an Air Force base in Florida.
7.342 Cancer Biology: From Basic Research to the Clinic (MIT)
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 research in a highly interactive setting. In 1971, President Nixon declared the "War on Cancer," but after three decades the war is still raging. How much progress have we made toward winning the war and what are we doing to improve the f
Virtual Maths - 2D Shapes, rectangle
Interactive simulation demonstrating calculation of area of a rectangle
In this video, a doctor describes the essential components - of a human heart. The anatomical names - associated with these components - is presented, and the basic function of each is described. Run time 03:29.
20.440 Analysis of Biological Networks (BE.440) (MIT)
This class analyzes complex biological processes from the molecular, cellular, extracellular, and organ levels of hierarchy. Emphasis is placed on the basic biochemical and biophysical principles that govern these processes. Examples of processes to be studied include chemotaxis, the fixation of nitrogen into organic biological molecules, growth factor and hormone mediated signaling cascades, and signaling cascades leading to cell death in response to DNA damage. In each case, the availability o
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.
Communicating India's Soft Power: Buddha to Bollywood
Professor Daya Thussu, University of Westminster, London, gives a talk for the Reuters seminar series
Scaffolding as a Teaching Strategy
Lauren Scharff discusses the Scaffolding approach to teaching. The video shoes the teacher lecturing in front of a powerpoint presentation. (6:32)
Marie Curie Biography, Part II
This is an animated biography of Marie Curie, a pioneer in the field of radioactivity, from the Discovery Channel Education series. This series is aimed at older elementary school children.
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.
7.340 Regenerative Medicine: from Bench to Bedside (MIT)
Regenerative medicine involves the repair and regeneration of tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as replacing bone marrow in leukemia, cartilage in osteoarthritis or cells of the heart after a heart attack. In this course, we will explore basic mechanisms of how cells differentiate into specific tissues in response to a variety of biologic signaling molecules. We will discuss the use of such factors for in vitro tissue production. We will also study the cellular mechanisms involved in the cl
Fe, C 1.0 (wt%), hypereutectoid alloy
This secondary electron SEM image shows the cementite delineating prior austenite grain boundaries with a thin layer. The amount of proeutectoid phase is very low, with the majority of the area being taken by the pearlite eutectoid. Again each pearlite cell has a different orientation with the ferrite phase being selectively etched.
Stem Cell Therapies are no More Drugs Than Soufflés are Fast Food
Stemcell discoveries make great news stories, but their actual translation into routine clinical practice is still a major hurdle. Is it reasonable to expect the big pharmaceutical companies to manufacture these living therapies or is the paradigm shift from today’s drugs to ‘living cells as therapies’ overwhelming? Would McDonald’s ever put delicate soufflés on their fast-food menus? This lecture will use examples from current cell and tissue-engineered clinical therapies to illustrate
Male Giant Panda Bear Dust Bathing
This short video gives excellent real life footage of a male Giant Panda dust bathing. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (Less Than 2 Minutes)
