Birth of a Great Observatory
For many centuries, maps of the southern sky showed extensive blank areas -- the Terra Incognita of the heavens. The year 1595: For the first time, Dutch traders set sail to the East Indies. At night, navigators Pieter Keyser and Frederik de Houtman measured the positions of more than 130 stars in the southern sky. Soon, celestial globes and maps showed twelve new constellations, none of which had ever been seen before by any European. (05:53)
The Voyage of Zheng He II
In this video segment adapted from 1421: The Year the Chinese Discovered America? Gavin Menzies claims the Chinese during the Ming Dynasty successfully made global naval expeditions around the world and discovered the North American continent prior to Columbus. How did they do it? According to Chinese scholars, China, under the command of Admiral Zheng He, had the naval capabilities, labor, motivation, and daring to build a fleet of 300 vessels to mount seven epic voyages. To learn mor
Implementing Mobile and e-learning in Health and Social Care
As part of a submission for the IMS Global Award, this film discusses the outputs of the ALPS CETL and demonstrates the impact that they have had on learning and assessment in practice settings, particularly focussing on the development of competency maps, 360degree multiprofessional asessment tools and the use of mobile technology to deliver these innovative assessment processes to the Health and Social Care students on placement.
29. Global Warming (continued)
The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) Several greenhouse gas emissions scenarios have been developed by the IPCC to determine possible affects on atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations and related climate warming. The largest estimates show a carbon dioxide concentration of about 800ppmv by the year 2100. Lower estimates rise to 450ppmv by the year 2100. The amount of projected warming associated with these emissions scenarios range from about 2-4°C. Several possib
28. Global Warming (continued)
The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) The current Holocene epoch is considered to be a time period of relatively stable climate compared to earlier geological periods. Still, some significant changes in temperature and sea level did occur. These climatic fluctuations include the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age, and more recently global warming. Temperature data for the 20th century shows a strong warming from about 1970 to the present day, typically associat
27. Global Warming
The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) The issue of global warming is discussed. Recent climate change over the last half of the 20th century is thought to be driven largely by greenhouse gas emissions, with carbon dioxide playing a large role. The carbon cycle describes the reservoirs of carbon (atmosphere, terrestrial biomass and ocean) and the exchanges that occur between these reservoirs. Inputs of carbon to the atmosphere include burning of fossil fuels and respirat
26. Isotope Evidence for Climate Change
The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) Isotopes are used to measure past climate properties. Deuterium and oxygen 18 are the most commonly used climate proxies. Lighter isotopes evaporate more readily from the ocean, so water vapor in the atmosphere is isotopically lighter than ocean water. This vapor gets lighter still as it is transported to higher latitudes while losing mass by precipitation. These processes leave an isotopic signal of temperature and continental ice

Biography of Harry S. Truman: Atomic Bombs, Communism, Korean War
By 1944, Harry S. Truman was chosen as Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s new vice presidential candidate. However, Truman only served a short time as VP because FDR died not long after his reelection. Though Truman had the presidency forced upon him, he led his country through trying times that included the end of WWII and the expansion of communism. In this video, from WatchMojo.com, learn more about the life and accomplishments of Harry S. Truman. (05:51)

Holocaust Survivor Testimony: Stella Franco Israel
Stella Franco was born in Rhodes in 1926, the eldest of seven children. Until 1943, the country was far removed from the war, but in 1944 Rhodes began being bombed heavily. During Passover a bomb struck the family's home, killing Stella's mother and five siblings. Overcome by grief, Stella's father moved the remnants of his family to a nearby Greek village, where they stayed for three months. In July the Germans entered the village and assembled the 2,000 Jews into a building. The day after Stel
