Postglacial Flooding of the Bering Land Bridge
This geospatial animation shows sea level rising across the land bridge between Siberia and Alaska. During the last Glacial Maximum (~21,000 years ago), the Bering Land Bridge was a vast tundra plain connecting Asia and North America. At that time, the global sea level was 120 meters lower than it is today. Melting ice sheets and glaciers caused the sea level to rise and flood the land bridge. A QuickTime file of this animation can be viewed or downloaded for analysis, education and outreach. Th

Paul Bunyan, Part 1 of 2
Actor James Earl Jones introduced Disney's 1958 animated film.  At "sixty-three ax-handles high" and with a big blue ox for a sidekick, our next hero, Paul Bunyan was a perfect subject for a Disney animated featurette. From his early days as a giant baby washed up on the shores of a seaside town, to his fame as the greatest lumberjack that ever lived, everything about him was bigger then life. Legend has it that he formed the Grand Titons, built Pike's Peak, and is responsible for the

George Inness in Italy
February 19, 2011 - May 15, 2011: A canonical figure in American painting, George Inness (1825–1894) is widely admired as the pioneer of the evocative aesthetic known as Tonalism, which is distinguished by soft focus and diaphanous layers of paint. This is the first exhibition to examine the artist’s two Italian sojourns (1851–52 and 1870–74) and their formative impact on his work. Italy—its art and its landscape—offered Inness a font of inspiration as he developed his own uniq

L'embryon humain sujet de savoir, objet de passions - René FRYDMAN (video)

Conférence du 23 janvier 2000 par René Frydman.

La maîtrise de la reproduction est centrée sur l'embryon humain. Elle est l'objet de nombreux investissements passionnels, aussi bien lorsqu'il s'agit d'espacer les naissances et d'éviter les conceptions non désirées, que lorsqu'il s'agit d'essayer d'obtenir un enfant. Dans une première partie, un rappel historique permet d'exposer les concepts aboutissant à la définition de la "personne humaine". Dans une seconde
