Brown Bear vs Pacific Salmon
In this short video clip, the Kamchatka brown bear charges through a rushing river in to grab slippery Pacific salmon, and high-speed cameras capture the action. Each summer, the brown bears wait for the moment where the rivers team with salmon during the annual salmon spawn. A bear may catch and eat a salmon every 20 minutes, 90 lbs of fish in a single day. Shows predator/prey relationships. Run time (02:11)
Daniel Pink on Drive, Motivation, and Incentives
Daniel Pink, author of Drive, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about drive, motivation, compensation, and incentives. Pink discusses the implications of using monetary rewards as compensation in business and in education.

Belbin and Woodcock's analysis of team development : presentation transcript is a presentation about managing the work of individuals and teams (HNC In Engineering – Design for manufacture Edexcel HN Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4) © Leicester College 2009). Teamwork plays a vital role in successfully developing products for the market place. This presentation discusses the types of roles the team members can fulfil and how to get the most out of both the individual and the team as a whole
Sept. 12 - A team of scientists from the Polish Academy of Sciences in Torun are using four remotely controlled telescopes placed around the globe to search for circumbinary systems - multiple transiting planets orbiting two suns. They hope to emulate NASA's Kepler mission, which located such a system last month. Jim Drury reports.
