Income Distribution and Social Change after 50 years [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Sir Tony Atkinson | Fifty years ago, it was believed that income inequality was falling and that poverty had largely been eliminated. This lecture returns to Richard Titmuss' masterly crossexamination of the evidence about income inequality and argues that we have much to learn, but also to add. Tony Atkinson is the centennial professor at LSE. His most recent book is Top Incomes: a global perspective.
The Doha Round is Alive; and more important than ever [Audio]
Speaker(s): Lord Brittan | Since 2008 it has looked to many as if the Doha Round trade negotiations were dead, or at best comatose. At the G20 Summit last November, world leaders gave it a shot in the arm, and there are now significant signs of life in Geneva. If concluded, it would provide an insurance policy against future protectionism and economic benefits estimated at over $360 billion. The challenge is to realise the window of opportunity in 2011 in order to seal the deal. On the last day

11.1 he four pleasures
Designed products surround us all and range from bus tickets to buildings. This unit focuses firmly on usability and the increasingly important phenomenon of people-centred design. It aims to inform consumers of design (i.e., all of us) about this crucial characteristic of design. The unit is derived from the Open University course T211 on Design and Designing, but as well as stimulating interest in areas of concern for producers of design it might also provide an introduction to engineering, ma
1.5.6 Velocity and acceleration as derivatives
Motion is vital to life, and to science. This unit will help you to understand why classical motion is probably the most fundamental part of physics. You will examine motion along a line and the ways in which such motion can be represented, through the use of graphs, equations and differential calculus.

Questioning the Constitution
This is a series of 12 short videos on how the Constitution works and the questions that are raised by people as it applies to them and the circumstances. Many major concerns such as the right to declare war, who has power the congress or the president, and others. Done through a series of interviews. Not a lot of statistics or facts, mainly questions.
Income Inequality In the United States
For this assignment we will explore the impact of gender and race on the earnings of full-time workers in 2000. The purpose of this assignment is to introduce you to some basic data analysis software (WebCHIP), to develop some familiarity with working with data from the Current Population Survey, and to apply what you have learned in the course to try to explain differences in earnings based on race and gender.

Focus on Fabrics: Putting Materials to Good Use
The goal is for students to understand the basics of engineering associated with the use, selection, and properties of fabrics. A wide variety of natural and synthetic fibers are used in our clothing, home furnishings and in our travel and sports equipment. The specific material chosen for each application depends on how closely the properties of the material match the design needs. This unit focuses on the different characteristics of fabrics and shows students how natural and synthetic fabrics
AE CS5.5: 3D Focus and Stereoscopic Convergence
An oft-overlooked issue in stereoscopic production is how the point of convergence relates to the viewing plane. Chris Meyer demonstrates adding 3D depth of field blur to the equation to create more realistic, easier-to-view scenes.
Simple Interest Explained
The narrator has a strong dialect, but is understandable, and she explains how to calculate simple interest using a smart board. The 1:49 long video would be a good introduction into this concept.
