Responding to Water Scarcity
Growers in the UK are having to get used to managing with less water. Changing climate patterns mean that techniques long established in Southern Europe are now being adapted for use further north. Dr Jim Monaghan (Harper Adams University College) is leading research at Warwick HRI on Dynamic Fertigation, an irrigation system that not only saves water and fertilizer but also automatically respond to five day weather forecasts. Length: 15 minutes
Watercolor Painting Basics
This video will show you the basic building blocks of watercolor painting. If you can master these techniques, you can paint anything. I am going to tape the paper up with regular masking tape and try to tape the paper to the board leaving a nice margin tape, so that when we pull the tape off later, we are going to have a nice clean edge.

Computadoras y Arquitectura en la Era Digital (Computers and Architecture in the Digital Era)
It seems that when architects think, and talk about computers, they only reflect on very narrow images of the phenomenon. Architects think that the impact of computers in their profession is only related to how PCs, CAD/CAM, networks, software, peripherals, can improve the way they work today. Architects, by enlarge, are unable to reflect beyond the screen of their computers and the wall of their offices when it comes to recognize the real consequences resulting from the new technological advanc

MAS.450 Holographic Imaging (MIT)
MAS.450 is a laboratory course about holography and holographic imaging. This course teaches holography from a scientific and analytical point of view, moving from interference and diffraction to imaging of single points to the display of three-dimensional images. Using a "hands-on" approach, students explore the underlying physical phenomena that make holograms work, as well as designing laboratory setups to make their own images. The course also teaches mathematical techniques that allow the b
