11.364 International Environmental Negotiation (MIT)
This seminar will explore the difficulties of getting agreement on global definitions of sustainability; in particularly building international support for efforts to combat climate change created by greenhouse gas emissions as well as other international resource management efforts. We will focus on possible changes in the way global environmental agreements are formulated and implemented, especially on ways of shifting from the current "pollution control" approach to combating climat
17.869 Political Science Scope and Methods (MIT)
This course is designed to provide an introduction to a variety of empirical research methods used by political scientists. The primary aims of the course are to make you a more sophisticated consumer of diverse empirical research and to allow you to conduct advanced independent work in your junior and senior years. This is not a course in data analysis. Rather, it is a course on how to approach political science research.
STS.007 Technology in History (MIT)
Today many people assume that technological change is the major factor in historical change and that it tends to lead to historical progress. This class turns these assumptions into a question—what is the role of technology in history?—by focusing on four key historical transitions: the human revolution (the emergence of humans as a history-making species), the Neolithic Revolution (the emergence of agriculture-based civilizations); the great leap in productivity (also known as the industria

Visual Studio Toolbox: All-In-One Code Framework Mei Liang is our guest this week. She is here to talk about the Microsoft All-In-One Code Framework, a code sample library provided by the Microsoft Community team. The Microsoft Community team monitors the MSDN forums, as well as other developer hangouts, and then creates code samples that address the issues developers run into. In this video, Mei shows us how to search for samples using the All-In-One Code Framework Sample Browser, which runs as a Visual Studio extension. She then shows us

Bees and plant growth
Bees help pollinate plants so they can reproduce. There are three different kinds of bees, and the queen bee is the largest. Bees keep their honey in their hives.
"Texts, Topics, and Times in German Literature, Fall 2009"
"In diesem Kurs erhalten Sie einen ?berblick ?ber einige wichtige literarische Texte, Tendenzen und Themen aus der deutschsprachigen Literatur- und Kulturszene. Wir werden literarische Texte, Gedichte, Theaterst?cke und Essays untersuchen, sowie andere ?sthetische Formen besprechen, wie Film und Architektur. Da alle Texte gleichzeitig in ihrem spezifischen kulturellen Kontext gelesen werden, tragen sie zu einem Verst?ndnis von verschiedenen historischen Aspekten bei. Unter anderen werden folgend
Propagation of Miniature Roses by Plant Tissue Culture
Tissue culture is a propagation technique widely used in modern agriculture because it allows production of many clonal plants from relatively little starting material. During this lab exercise, miniature roses are propagated by simple plant tissue culture. Students learn the different steps involved in the tissue culture procedure, practice aseptic technique when handling explants, and observe the effects of different hormones and nutrient levels on explant development.
Characterization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes by Raman Spectroscopy
Raman Spectroscopy can be successfully employed to study Carbon nanotubes at single nanotube level. Length, diameter, electronic type (metallic or semiconducting), and whether nanotubes are separated or in bundle can be known by the use of Raman Spectroscopy.
Membrane Lipids Illustrations
The first of 14 PowerPoint files containing slides for a topical unit of medical cell biology instruction within the broader categories of Cellular Membranes, Organelles and Molecular Traffic, and Cytoskeleton. Only slides containing illustrations are included. Although text slides are not provided, image slides featuring text are intact. PowerPoint animation of text and images has been removed, but there are several slide sequences that when shown consecutively provide image animation. Illustra
STS-135 Daily Mission Recap - Flight Day 2

A Migrant's Heart
Jatinder Verma, a man of Indian descent who was born in East Africa and came to England at the age of 14, explains through a trip back to India how he is caught between two worlds, struggling to preserve his cultural heritage while being acculturated into his adopted country. His story demonstrates how migrants think about their sense of place in relation to where they have come from. (27:12)
Berlin: Changing Center of a Changing Europe
Berlin's emergence as Germany's new political capital symbolizes the end of communism and a transformation occurring throughout the country and continent. Many of the issues that Germany now confronts — such as the shift of considerable resources to rebuild Eastern Germany and the rise of neo-Nazi sentiments — are seen in microcosm in Berlin. (27:23)
Blood circulation though the zebra fish body
Tissues are a collection of cells that act as a functional unit. In this case, cells make up the tissues of the arties and veins.
The Voyage of Kealoha
This video, adapted from material provided by the ECHO partners, tells the Kealoha story, Hawai‘i's Native Seamen and Their Whaling Legacy, through a dramatization and source images.
What a Drag! Activity
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate how drag affects falling objects. Students will make a variety of shapes out of paper and see how size and shape affects the speed with which their paper shapes fall. They will also be able to see how the weight of an object changes the speed with which it falls.
How Big? Lesson
The objective of Lesson 2 is for student teams to determine the size of the caverns. Lesson two has student teams measure their classroom to determine area and volume; determine how many people could comfortably sleep in their classroom; scale this number up to find the required area for all Alabraskans. The lesson provides a good application of area and volume concepts. Students also perform math conversions between feet, meters, miles and kilometers.
Who Needs What?
The teacher leads a discussion in which students identify the physical needs of animals, and then speculate on the needs of plants. With guidance from the teacher, the students then help design an experiment that can take place in the classroom to test whether or not plants need light and water in order to grow. Sunflower seeds are planted in plastic cups, and once germinated, are exposed to different conditions. In particular, within the classroom setting it is easy to test for the effects of l
