XNA: Game Development - Making Games Respond with Collision Games are only really games if things bump into one another. In this video, Josh Foss and Elbert Perez show you how and why collision works in both 2D and 3D. Watch, then code along at http://create.msdn.com/education/tutorial/2dgame/collision. We will be featuring a new XNA Game Development video each Monday for the next ten weeks. If you simply can't wait and would love to jump ah

How to Shop for Free Online Web applications increasingly integrate third-party services. The integration introduces new security challenges due to the complexity for an application to coordinate its internal states with those of the component services and the web client across the Internet. In this paper, we study the security implications of this problem to merchant websites that accept payments through third-party cashiers (e.g., PayPal, Amazon Payments and Google Checkout), which we refer to as Cashier-as-a-Serv

Biotechnology-New Strategies in Agriculture
Fish production markedly depends on the natural resources, although useful strains have been produced by the conventional cross-hybridization in case of tplants and animals. In this lecture, newly developed techniques of fish production including gene transfer will be introduced.
Biological Rhythm and Health Sciences
Every creature inhabiting the earth, including human beings, lives with a body rhythm of various periods. Among the various studies, the study of circadian rhythm was performed flourishingly in particular and it became clear that the circadian rhythm was closely related to a behaviour pattern in our daily life and health after a series of studies about how it was performed. As a result of fixed 24-hour society in our life, we are having a lot of benefits but on the other hand, the body rhythm wi
6.6 Worlds without end
How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.

"We Want Real Jobs:" Sandra White and Brenda Steward on the Work Experience Program in New York City
During the 1960's and 1970's welfare reform movements from the left sought to increase benefits and expand community power, but in 1996 critics from the right passed the federal Welfare Reform Act to limit the program by imposing time-limits and restrictions on welfare benefits. In New York City, the Work Experience Program (WEP), or workfare, initiated in conjunction with the 1996 act, required welfare recipients to "pay off" their welfare benefits by working menial jobs for the city at well be
Module One: Interpersonal Relationships
The present module entitled "Intra-Personal Relationship Skills" will address several components such as self esteem and self improvement, values education, goal setting and time management, substance use and abuse, heritage and finally, wellness and care which will focus on nutrition, fitness and stress management. This will provide learners the opportunity to use basic self development concepts and strategies that promote self respect and high self-esteem. They will develop an understanding of
Module 8: Medium- and Long-term Financing
Identify and arrange medium- and long-term finance for an overseas buyer (internal/external) to allow the buyer extended terms while providing cash payment to a seller without recourse. MSU Global has teamed with experts in the international finance field to create resources to help increase international skills in the business community. These materials address the need of the international trade practitioner for knowledge and information that is specific to trade finance by providing a means
Error Control Coding
We will explore the theoretical and historical motivation behind modern error control coding, particularly algebraic block coding. Linear codes, both block and convolutional, will be introduced, followed by a description of the algebraic tools necessary to describe and implement Reed-Solomon codes. Modern algebraic concepts including Galois fields will be presented, along with circuit implementations. Also, convolutional codes and trellis-coded modulation will be covered, along with the Viterbi

Tutorial Letter: General Information - Module One
In this module we will introduce you to concepts such as food security, food insecurity, nutrition security, livelihood security, food policies and programmes and the role of stakeholders and facilitators. You will gain the knowledge and skills required to gather information on many different levels, from the macro to the micro level. You will also, in time, become equipped to analyse community and household needs, understand the implications of policies and strategies for communities and househ
Changes in Ecosystems - by StudyJams
Ecosystems are constantly going through gradual changes. Sometimes those changes are natural, and sometimes they are caused by humans. Learn more about changes in an ecosystem with this cartoon animation from StudyJams. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.

Crocodile Skeleton - Front Limb
The crocodile has small limbs because its spends most of its time in water. The limbs are sprawled and it drags itself across land. The ball and socket joint allows the limb to move in different directions.
Navigating by the Numbers
In this lesson, students will learn that math is important in navigation and engineering. Ancient land and sea navigators started with the most basic of navigation equations (Speed x Time = Distance). Today, navigational satellites use equations that take into account the relative effects of space and time. However, even these high-tech wonders cannot be built without pure and simple math concepts basic geometry and trigonometry that have been used for thousands of years. In this lesson, these b
Exploring Texture from a Set Work: Mozart
A lesson plan aimed at all levels. Students are required to listen to a specific extract from a set work with which they are already familiar and select an appropriate diagram which graphically represents the accompaniment at various points.
Movements and Shifts in Supply Curves
A consideration of the factors affecting the movements and shifts in supply curves and how the interaction of demand and supply curves affect market forces.
Mt. Pinatubo 10th Anniversary Perspective (Stills)
This recent false color Landsat-7 image, from January 2001, shows Mt. Pinatubo as it stands today. The caldera is seen in the middle of the image, underneath clouds. Ten years after the blast, vegetation is re-growing on the slopes of the mountain (in green.) Streams of mud, called lahars, (resulting from ash from the eruption mixing with water- seen as the lighter sediment) continue to flow down the sides of the mountains, as well as channels of water (darker streams). However, as vegetation gr
