Adaptation, Extinction and Global Change
McGill Biology professor Graham Bell describes examples of rapid evolution as well as situations where adaptation hasn't happened. He further explains how organisms are likely to evolve in the coming period of rapid environmental change.
Avoiding dangerous climate change: Geo-engineering or mitigation? (Part 1)
In this year's Lorne Trottier Public Science Symposium, climate scientists and a historian of science will discuss the scientific and social ramifications of geo-engineering Earth's climate.
Mini project : ROM based sine wave generator : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation introducing a ROM-Based Sine Wave Generator. It is part of the 2009/10 BEng in Digital Systems and Computer Engineering (course number 2ELE0065) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. This project requires the establishment of a communication protocol between two 68000-based microcomputer systems. Using ‘C’, students will write software to control all aspects of comp
Derelict site simulation
This Powerpoint driven simulation takes participants through a structured series of common dilemmas faced by managers looking after derelict sites. Risks must be appraised within resource constraints (and the influence of chance). Decisions taken affect subsequent events. Can you steer the site safely through this maze? The resource can be used in the teaching of lawyers about occupiers’ liability, as well as construction and real estate students and also environmental management students. The
7 Wonders Of Ancient Greece
A 1:46 video that briefly dwells on the "wonders" and could set the stage for an indepth study of these masterpieces. A good starting place for the study of Ancient Greece.

Green business and green values: the CIBAM Global Business Symposium- Part 1
Corporations and governments are having to face up to the new challenges of how to operate in a global business environment where the financial sector is broken and needs fixing, and protecting the environment is a major concern for all. "Sustainable competitiveness" is the new catch phrase as business leaders and government's embrace a different language. Phrases like "business ethics", "environmental protection" and "wealth distribution" are being talked about in board rooms and cabinets aroun
Approaches in Environmental Ethics For Business and Engineering

22.05 Neutron Science and Reactor Physics (MIT)
This course introduces fundamental properties of the neutron. It covers reactions induced by neutrons, nuclear fission, slowing down of neutrons in infinite media, diffusion theory, the few-group approximation, point kinetics, and fission-product poisoning. We emphasize the nuclear physics basis of reactor design and its relationship to reactor engineering problems.
