Rediscovering Popular History (Geoffrey Ward)
Host Marcia Alvar speaks with Geoffrey Ward. The tension between popular versions of history and history as it really happened inspires Professor Ward's work. A Roosevelt scholar and award-winning biographer, he has collaborated with Ken Burns in developing the scripts and companion books for series on the Civil War, baseball, and most recently, the West.
Dayna Baumeister - Nature as Industry: The Role of Biomimicry in the New Green Economy
To create products and processes that are well-adapted to life, innovators are turning to a new design discipline called biomimicry, consciously emulating lifeâ making fibers like a spider, computing like a cell, and running a business like a redwood forest. Dr. Dayna Baumeister, co-founder of the Biomimicry Guild, discusses biomimicry and its role in ensuring the success of this new industrial revolution. With support from the Life Sciences Institute, Taubman College, the Graham Sustainab

This Xerte resource is a translation of the original UKESCC courseware resource covering the deformation of rocks. It deals with the following sub-topics: Introduction to rock deformation; The analysis of stress; Deformation and finite strain; Brittle deformation; Ductile deformation. Each topic is covered theoretically and with natural examples.
Introduction to microeconomics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Semester 1 2009/2010. There are no pre-requisites to taking this module and in particular there is no assumption of any prior knowledge of economics. For those who have taken A-level economics or any other version of economics some of the module content will appear familiar to you. However, the methods of analysis and the approach to teaching will quite probably be very different to anything experienced be
Lucian Wischik: Inside VB.NET Async and Customizing Awaitable Types Lucian Wischik digs into the new VB functions and iterators being developed for asynchronous development. You can get an early look at these new features, available as the Async CTP, today! Give VB.NETAsync a try. In this whiteboard-heavy conversation, Lucian demonstrates how to make custom awaitable types and provides deep insights into the mechanics behind and inside Async.

The goal of the Genetic Origins Program is to allow students to use their own DNA variations (polymorphisms) as a means to explore our shared genetic heritage and its implications for human health and society. Genetic Origins focuses on two types of DNA variations: an Alu insertion polymorphism on chromosome 16 (PV92) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the control region of the mitochondrial (mt) chromosome. With two alleles and three genotypes, PV92 is a simple genetic system that il

Decision Trees Video Tutorial
Learning is the ability to improve one's behaviour based on experience and represents an essential element of computational intelligence. Decision trees are a simple yet successful technique for supervised classification learning. This tool demonstrates how to build a decision tree using a training data set and then use the tree to classify unseen examples in a test data set.

As well as updating the existing listings in the directory, two more podcast channels have been added to the directory. The first is the Brain Storm preview channel with podcasts on a variety of business related topics. The second is a series of podcasts about Author(s):
C++ Console Lesson 24: Fundamental Data Types
More at http://xoax.net
This C++ video tutorial explains the fundamental data types that are used in C++ and their ranges of values. C++ provides the following fundamental built-in data types: Boolean, character, integer and floating-point. It also enables us to create our own user-defined data types using enumerations and classes.
C++ Console Lesson 26: Enumerations
More at http://xoax.net
This C++ video tutorial explains how to use declare and use enumerated types in C++. enumerated type (also called enumeration or enum) is a data type consisting of a set of named values called elements, members or enumerators of the type. The enumerator names are usually identifiers that behave as constants in the language. A variable that has been declared as having an enumerated type can be assigned any of the enumerators as a value.
