1.2.3 Cultural approaches to normality

What is normal in terms of the simple act of waiting for a bus? In the UK it is expected that people will organise themselves into a queue, so those who have waited the longest can board the bus first. However, this is not true of all cultures. Yet, if someone from a culture that does not queue were waiting for a bus in Manchester and did not wait her turn, she would be chastised for it.

Wind Power from National Renewable Energy Laboratory
This is a very informative video from The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) about wind power, how it works, the benefits, and its future.  There is closed captioning, which is great because, for younger students, this will be paused throughout for explanations/discussions.  Although this was made for adults, there is a very basic explanation of how wind mills turn the wind into energy.  (06:45)
