Leading an Environmentally Sustainable Enterprise
Climate change poses perhaps the premiere threat to coming generations, says Martin Madaus, but to avoid its worst impacts, we must confront the issue now. To that end, Madaus exhorts business leaders to focus immediately on building environmental sustainability into their operations, as he has begun to do at Millipore.
Reflections on an MIT Education
In a neat series of time capsules tagged to his MIT experience, Neil Pappalardo shares his story with MIT graduates in the hope that it will give them “an idea of the possibilities that lie ahead.”
His story begins in 1964, when as a senior majoring in Physics, he decided to pursue a thesis on a
Introduction to macroeconomics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Spring Semester 2010. This module provides an introduction to modern macroeconomic analysis. Macroeconomics is concerned with some of the most pressing and fundamental questions economists can ask, such as: What determines economic growth? Why do economies exhibit expansions ('booms') and contractions ('busts') in output? What drives employment and wages, saving and investment? What causes inflation and
Using composite materials to replace bone
In this podcast, Professor Chris Rudd, Dean of the faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, describes his work with composite materials in the car industry and how it can be applied to the field of medicine. Traditionally, patients who have lost bone in an accident or have had bone removed due to cancer have had to endure two very long and very painful operations. One operation to attach steel plates to the bone, and a second operation once the bone has healed, to remove them. F

The research presents the importance of the experimentations within education of architecture project. Since the studies for traditional and emergent ways with use them digital tools, it values the project inquiries in the simulations of the models in 3D. For many times, the digital model for being tangible cannot present a difficulty in the understanding of constructive details. As in the digital tools, more specifically BIM (Building Information Modeling) possess integrated standards complex.
TALAT Lecture 1402: Aluminium Matrix Composite Materials
This lecture provides understanding of the state-of-the-art of aluminium matrix composite materials; it outlines the properties of aluminium matrix composite materials as a basis for materials selection; it explains the limits of useful applications; it demonstrates the various types of aluminium matrix composites. Knowledge in metallurgy, materials science, materials engineering is assumed.
Helping newcomers integrate into a workplace
Dan Cable, Professor of Organisational Behaviour at London Business School, explains how companies can implement certain strategies to help new employees settle into new organisations and retain them.

9.14 Brain Structure and its Origins (MIT)
This course covers major CNS structures with emphasis on systems being used as models for experimental studies of development and plasticity. Topics include basic patterns of connections in CNS, embryogenesis, PNS anatomy and development, process outgrowth and synaptogenesis, growth factors and cell survival, spinal and hindbrain anatomy, and development of regional specificity with an introduction to comparative anatomy and CNS evolution. A review of lab techniques (anatomy, tissue culture) is

Lecture 6: Hydraulic Engineering - How We Use Hydraulics to Solve Real Life Engineering Problems
Dr Jane Smallman on "Hydraulic Engineering - How We Use Hydraulics to Solve Real Life Engineering Problems". Hydraulics is used extensively to provide solutions to engineering problems. In this presentation the focus was on civil and environmental engineering projects in the maritime sector. A number of illustrations were given of the way in which research is developed into tools that are used to solve practical problems.
The Romans were some of the most important innovators in structural design. Of their contributions, the arch and the bridges they built using this elegant shape stand out as the most creative and enduring. In this video segment adapted from Building Big, series host David Macaulay describes the forces and design features that give arches their strength. Closed captioning included. Run time 01:47.

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

Dangers of Hot Work
"The CSB has identified over 60 fatalities since 1990 due to explosions and fires from hot work activities on tanks. Hot work is defined as “[w]ork involving burning, welding, or a similar operation that is capable of initiating fires or explosions.”1 Hot work also includes other activities with the potential to create a source of ignition such as cutting, brazing, grinding, and soldering. Workers are potentially at risk not only in the oil and gas industry, where flammables are handled regu
