Why Study Icons with Dr Mary Cunningham
Icons -- religious images from the eastern Churches -- are far more than religious images as seen in western churches: they enable an encounter between the observer and the mystery. In this video, Mary Cunningham, an expert on Orthodoxy, introduces them.
3.1 Introduction Precedent is the basis of the common law. The doctrine of binding precedent is known as the doctrine of stare decisis, which is Latin meaning ‘to stand by/adhere to decided cases’, i.e. to follow precedent. In other words, once a principle is decided it should be followed in future cases. The doctrine refers to the fact that, within the hierarchical structure of the English courts, the decision of a higher court will be binding on a lower court. In general terms, this means th

The Power of the Whole Picture
In this video from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad helps Ms. Fileshare realize that Hacker has been deceiving her as they take a look at the scale of a bar graph.
What do we mean by ‘community’, ‘care’ and ‘welfare’? In this unit you will explore the meanings of these words in their historical and cultural settings. The unit does not discuss these terms exclusively in terms of social work practice so service users, carers or anyone interested in community care and the ways in which welfare services are provided would find this unit useful.

Qualitative Data Analysis
The aim of this Reusable Learning Object (RLO) is to give you an idea of how qualitative data analysis is done. It's aimed at students studying evidence based practice or research methods, with a basic understanding of what qualitative research is.
Cervantes' Don Quixote — Open Yale Courses
The course facilitates a close reading of Don Quixote in the artistic and historical context of renaissance and baroque Spain. Students are also expected to read four of Cervantes' Exemplary Stories, Cervantes' Don Quixote: A Casebook, and J.H. Elliott's Imperial Spain. Cervantes' work will be discussed in relation to paintings by Velázquez. The question of why Don Quixote is read today will be addressed throughout the course. Students are expected to know the book, the background readings and
This report summarizes work done as part of the Michell Trusses PFUG under Rice University's VIGRE program. VIGRE is a program of Vertically Integrated Grants for Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences under the direction of the National Science Foundation. A PFUG is a group of Postdocs, Faculty, Undergraduates and Graduate students formed around the study of a common problem. In this PFUG, we study cost minimizing trusses. We ask what is the structure, constructed of bars and cable
Mitochondrial DNA from Lumbriculus variegatus: Isolation and Restriction Digest Analysis
In this activity, mitochondria are isolated from the California blackworm, Lumbriculus variegatus, by homogenization and differential centrifugation. A modified plasmid miniprep procedure (alkaline lysis) is then used to isolate DNA from these mitochondria. Single and double enzyme restriction digests of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) are analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis. Sizes of mtDNA restriction fragments are estimated from gel results and are used to determine the total size of the L. vari
"Learning and Memory: Activity-Controlled Gene Expression in the Nervous System, Fall 2009"
"The mammalian brain easily outperforms any computer. It adapts and changes constantly. Most importantly, the brain enables us to continuously learn and remember. What are the molecular mechanisms that lead to learning and memory? What are the cellular roles that activity-regulated gene products play to implement changes in the brain?How do nerve cells, their connections (synapses), and brain circuits change over time to store information? We will discuss the molecular mechanisms of neuronal pla

Dynamic Generation of Design Plans at the Brief Stage
The traditional approach to design and construction suffers from many limitations. As the technology becomes more available to the average users, the need for an effective and efficient solution has never been greater. This paper introduces an alternative approach to the life cycle of construction projects "application controlled process". Based on this approach, a framework for an Integrated Construction Environment (ICE) has been developed and implemented in a prototype demonstrator "SPACE" (S
Hurricane Mitch from TRMM: October 27, 1998
A fly-in to Hurricane Mitch on October 27, 1998, showing the three-dimensional structure of the precipitation as measured by the Precipitation Radar instrument on TRMM. In this animation, a surface of constant precipitation is colored by the value of the precipitation on the ground under the surface.

How the Cow Ate the Cabbage Read A Loud
This video is a play on the story "There Was an Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly". The theme is a barnyard and a series of events creates an opportunity for a cow to get out of a gate to eat some cabbage in the field. Words appear at the bottom of the screen and each word is highlighted as it is said. Content is appropriate for elementary students.
