XXII SETTSC IL MIO AMICO ALBERT LIC SCIENTIF MAJORANA CALTAGIRONE
By: calogero.messina Il cortometraggio è stato realizzato dagli studenti della classe IV C del Liceo Scientifico “E. Majorana” di Caltagirone per la partecipazione al concorso “Scienziati in corto”, in occasione della XXII settimana della Cultura Scientifica. Il corto è centrato sul fenomeno fisico dell’effetto fotoelettrico, la cui dimostrazione valse ad Albert Einstein il premio Nobel per la Fisica nel 1921. Il video racconta di un incontro nella “fantasia” tra una studentessa
Sean Stillwell: Opportunistic Park(ing): A Distributed Pedestrian Network
Architecture Final Reviews: Presented by the Architecture Program at California College of the Arts. Filmed at CCA's San Francisco campus April 27--29, 2012, 9 a.m.--7 p.m. Currently, public space is created by limited policy mechanisms that trade public square footage for developer rights. This thesis exploits ulterior means of producing contiguous public space within dense urban fabric of the city without mitigating that density, and while maintaining connectivity with the existing pedestrian
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.

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.
Enjoy and please play with the CT

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

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.

Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois: The Conflict
This video from The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow identifies two major leaders in the African American community during the era of Jim Crow: Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois. By the turn of the 20th century, Washington was an incredibly popular figure who, among many accomplishments, had become the leader of the Tuskegee Institute and started the National Business League. Washington maintained that African Americans could achieve economic progress and spiritual growth but only by accepting
A Bed of Nails
Professor Ephraim Fischbach demonstrates a bed of nails in this video from Thinkwell's online Physics series. In some physical situations, force is the more relevant concept but in other situations its the pressure. Pressure is the force divided by the area over which the force acts. Run time 06:03.
Dynamic Generation of Design Plans at the Brief Stage
The traditional approach to design and construction suffers from many limitations. As the technology becomes more available to the average users, the need for an effective and efficient solution has never been greater. This paper introduces an alternative approach to the life cycle of construction projects "application controlled process". Based on this approach, a framework for an Integrated Construction Environment (ICE) has been developed and implemented in a prototype demonstrator "SPACE" (S
