2.2.2 Florence Foster In 2000, Florence Foster was in her sixties. For a number of years, she had lived in a tenement in Dundee owned by a private landlord. As she describes in the programme, her accommodation was extremely damp and difficult to heat. There was green mould growing in the wardrobe in her bedroom, and all the window frames were rotten. She was dependent on electric fires for heating, which she had to pay for through a card meter. Her weekly income did not enable her to put sufficient cards in the me

Bon Voyage to Bad Boating Habits
Students will learn about common boating-related threats to waterways. They will learn about the problems created in waterways by recreational boaters and discuss ways boaters can change their behaviors to reduce their impact on waterways. Students will also learn about the history of water pollution through a study of the Cuyahoga River. They will create a commercial to raise awareness about boating-related pollution.

Oil Contaminants Hidden from View
In this video adapted from KTOO, watch as cleanup crews return to the bays and islands of Prince William Sound, Alaska. Before the 1989 Exxon Valdez tanker spill, Sleepy Bay, near the village of Chenega Bay, had been used for subsistence living by Alaska Native peoples. Despite cleanup efforts, oil residue remains stuck between and beneath rocks. A crew also visits a tidal lagoon whose sediments had been saturated by oil and where no remediation had been done. Even after 10 years, oil residue re

Reflections on using film in fieldwork
These reflections on filming among the Gurungs were made in the autumn of 2000 A.D. Alan Macfarlane talked into the camera in order to capture some of the types of film he made, the changing technologies, and some tips on how to film in the field. This was filmed on 3-chip digital video. The clips should be viewed over broadband.,The history of my early filming and photography on an 8mm film camera, 1968-1987 Filming on video from 1988; the advantages What should one film?

Icy bodies: Europa and elsewhere
The new discipline of astrobiology – that is, the science of searching for extraterrestrial life – is not only rapdly growing, but has also captured the public imagination. This unit examines the emergence of icy satellites of distant planets as potential sites of extraterrestrial life. Focussing on the case study of Jupiter's moon Europa, the unit looks at the potential for life there, and speculates on the ethics of searching for life elsewhere in the solar system.

Applying Ohm's Law to Semiconductors
This project allows students to apply concepts of momentum conservation and energy conservation from classical physics. However, here they are not enough: they must be combined with modern physics, using concepts from relativity and particle physics as well as modern units that put energy, mass, and momentum in terms of MeV and GeV. Most important, students will learn about both fundamental and cutting-edge physics by actually doing what physicists do.
