17.422 Field Seminar in International Political Economy (MIT)
This field seminar in international political economy covers major theoretical, empirical, and policy perspectives. The basic orientation is disciplinary and comparative (over time and across countries, regions, firms), spanning issues relevant to both industrial and developing states. Special attention is given to challenges and dilemmas shaped by the macro-level consequences of micro-level behavior, and by micro-level adjustments to macro-level influences.
President William McKinley
A four minute summary of William McKinley's accomplishments and life history. A very good video to show human side of a president.

How Does the Worm Factory Work
The Worm Factory 360 is a home composting solution for your kitchen and household waste. Although this video was obviously made to promote the purchase of the Worm Factory 360, it does a very nice job of describing the basic process of how composting works. The video could also be used as inspiration to brainstorm and design new models for a successful compost bin. Run time 03:05.
Reflections from Sylvia Chant and Inderpal Grewal [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Sylvia Chant, Professor Inderpal Grewal | In this Gender Institute 20th Anniversary Conference keynote, two distinguished scholars – Sylvia Chant and Inderpal Grewal – will reflect on the presence of gender from the unique intersection of social science and humanities perspectives. Sylvia Chant’s paper is entitled Feminisation of Poverty’: ‘Win-Win’, ‘Lose-Lose’… or Gains at the Margin? The ‘feminisation of poverty’ has enjoyed a prominent place in Gen
Newton's First Law (part 2)

Solid State Physics
In the electrical engineering, solid-state materials and the properties play an essential role. A thorough understanding of the physics of metals, insulators and semiconductor materials is essential for designing new electronic devices and circuits. After short introduction of the IC fabrication process, the course starts with the crystallography. This will be followed by the basic principle of the quantum mechanics, the sold-state physics, band-structure and the relation with electrical propert
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This challenge from the Figure This! collection of 80 online math challenges explores two questions about images seen in mirrors. The usefulness of knowing about angles, reflections, and lines of sight for designing theaters and for playing both video and sports games is noted. The suggested hands-on exploratory activities should lead students to conclude that (1) an image in a mirror shows twice as much of the person as the length of the mirror and (2) when backing away from a mirror, the image
Check out this site for activities related to NASA's science and engineering projects . Topics range from solving air traffic control problems to designing a new planet, and there's something for inquisitive minds of all ages. Also, every week you can read a bio of a NASA worker.
Reducing Racial/Ethnic Disparities in Female Breast Cancer: Screening Rates and Stage at Diagnosis
Objectives. We assessed whether population rates of mammography screening, and their changes over time, were associated with improvements in breast cancer stage at diagnosis and whether the strength of this association varied by race/ethnicity. Methods. We analyzed state cancer registry data linked to socioeconomic characteristics of patients’ areas of residence for 1990–1998 time trends in the likelihood of early stage diagnosis. We appended each cancer registry record with matching subgro
Country Studies/Area Handbooks
This site presents a description and analysis of the historical setting and the social, economic, political, and national security systems and institutions of countries throughout the world. It examines the interrelationships of those systems and the ways they are shaped by cultural factors. At present, 101 countries and regions are covered.
The United States Air Force Academy: Founding a Proud Tradition
recounts the history of aviation and the military: aviation's entry into the military during World War I, Germany's use of air power early in World War II, Pearl Harbor, the Berlin Airlift, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and President Eisenhower's declaration that our first line of defense would be an air atomic strike force. The site examines the design of the Air Force Academy, authorized in 1954 after 30 years of struggle.
The War Relocation Camps of World War II: When Fear Was Stronger than Justice
examines the causes and effects of President Franklin Roosevelt's executive order, signed two months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, that moved nearly 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans into relocation centers. An excerpt is provided from the executive order as well as headlines from newspapers, a 1942 notice of instructions to all persons of Japanese ancestry, a description of life in the relocation centers, maps, and photos of a typical barracks room, mess hall, and more.
New Industrial Centres and the Rise of the Justice and Development Party to Power in Turkey
The lecture will discuss the rise of export oriented industrial centres across Turkey in recent decades, how they have contributed to the electoral successes of the Justice and Development Party and their ongoing impact on Turkey's economic and political liberalisation.
The Down Low Talk Show - Exploring the Controversy over Laws Regulating "Sagging" Pants
In this lesson, students consider their own ideas about fashion and debate the controversy over sagging pants by participating in a simulated radio talk show. They conclude by designing personal fashion statement posters.
