This Web page gives access to the full-text of 'Orient: Report of the Society for Near Eastern Studies in Japan' (1960-2004), and despite the word 'report' in the title this is actually a substantial academic journal. Tables of contents, abstracts, and PDF files of articles are all freely available online. The journal was published in English, with occasional articles in German and French, and was devoted to reports and scholarly articles on archaeological and historical topics, with forays into
Stereotype Threat: How it affects us and what we can do about it
Claude Steele, internationally renowned social scientist and Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, will discuss his theory of stereotype threat, which has been the focus of much of his research and writing throughout his academic career. The theory examines how people from different groups, being threatened by different stereotypes, can have quite different experiences in the same situation. It has also been used to understand group differences in performance ranging from the intellectual to th
Cool Facts About Cool Cats - Tigers, Snow Leopards
The Amur or Siberian tiger has no problem living in a very cold part of Russia. Winter months can be a snowy and chilly -10 to -40 degrees Fahrenheit! Learn about some features that help these big cats survive and thrive in such frigid temperatures (Running Time 2:20).
Fooled By Nature Videos - The Leopard
Some minor graphic images in this video about Leopards use their strength and cunning to survive against larger animals. A good video for science classes to help show how animals have evolved to survive. Run time 02:40.
Half Lion, Half Tiger - It's a Liger
This short film features ligers at a German Zoo. (Ligers are only bred and raised in captivity. Scientists are doubtful that a liger could exist in the wild.) Run time 01:22.
Not a Tiger, Not a Lion. It’s a Liger!
Hybrids like mules have been domesticated by human beings for
centuries. Even many of the breeds of pets that we have (dogs and cats) are hybrids between species.
But what do you get when you mix two of the biggest, most beautiful
big cats? A liger! A liger is the baby born out of the mating of a male
lion and a female tiger. It is the biggest wild cat in the world, bigger
than both its parents!
It also inherits certain specific characteristics from

4.1 Overview One of the most surprising aspects of quantum physics is the ability of particles to pass through regions that they are classically forbidden from entering. This is the phenomenon of quantum-mechanical tunnelling that was mentioned in Session 1. In Session 4 we first demonstrate the phenomenon of tunnelling with the ai

1.2 Units of measurement In the UK, two systems of units are in common use. We still use old imperial measures for some things: milk is sold in pints and signposts indicate distances in miles. But for many other everyday measurements metric units have been adopted: we buy petrol in litres and sugar in kilogram bags. A great advantage of metric units is that we no longer have to convert laboriously from imperial units, such as gallons, feet and inches, in order to trade with continental Europe. Also, calculations are

El Storyboard y el Animatic en la Ense?anza del Proyecto de Arquitectura [Storyboarding and Animatic
This paper discusses the issues involved with the introduction of the storyboard and the animatic in a design studio exercise. Storyboards - sketches used in film planning -, and the animatic - basically a moving storyboard - allow the student to understand space within in the context of a narrative. The purpose of the exercise was to enable the expression of subjectively experienced space in an early stage of urban context analysis. Differently than the traditional approach to animation which r

Westward Movement and Economy
This video is accompanied by text. "By the mid-nineteenth century, the American economy that had been based on local commerce and small-scale farming was maturing into a dynamic, wide-reaching capitalist marketplace. As the industrial revolution in the northeast altered the economy and intensified the process of urbanization, an agricultural empire began to emerge in the west.
By 1860, more than one-half of the American population was located west of the Appalachian Mountains. Conditions
Frustration of some Americans over the policy of segregation and resistance by other Americans to integration eventually gave rise to the acts of civil disobedience that would mark the beginning of the civil rights movement. In demonstration after demonstration one or more individuals would inspire others to take a stand against a system based on prejudice.
