3.6 The numbers game … or the struggle for existence

In the majority of The Life of Mammals TV sequences there is relatively little evidence of any struggle for existence, apart from the occasional predator/prey interaction. Even then you are offered the comforting reassurance that ‘four out of five chases end with the prey escaping’. So you could be forgiven for thinking that most mammals survive to a ripe old age, or at least until, like the topi, they have fulfilled their reproductive potential. Not so!

8.251 String Theory for Undergraduates (MIT)
This course introduces string theory to undergraduate and is based upon Prof. Zwiebach's textbook entitled A First Course in String Theory. Since string theory is quantum mechanics of a relativistic string, the foundations of the subject can be explained to students exposed to both special relativity and basic quantum mechanics. This course develops the aspects of string theory and makes it accessible to students familiar with basic electromagnetism and statistical mechanics.

4.6 New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde

Let us take a moment to consider another aspect of New Lanark that was potentially of great importance to any propaganda campaign built around it. Big factories employing large numbers of youngsters were still unusual and so objects of curiosity. But New Lanark was unique given its proximity to the Falls of Clyde, the most spectacular waterfalls in Britain. By our period, the falls (see Author(s): The Open University
