Spiders Jump With Deadly Accuracy in Green Light
Researchers have discovered a unique visual attribute that jumping spiders use in attacking and catching prey. The arachnids use what is called image defocus-proven in part by videos that show spiders jumping with deadly accuracy in green light (and fumbling in red).

Writing and Experience: Crossing Borders, Fall 2010
In this era of globalization, many of us have multi- or bi-cultural, multilingual or bilingual backgrounds, and even if we don't have such a background, we need urgently to understand the experiences of people who do. You will very likely work outside the United States at some point in your future; you will almost certainly work with people who speak more than one language, whose ancestry or origins are in a country other than the U.S., who have crossed borders of nation, language, culture, clas
Israel: History, Politics, Culture, and Identity, Spring 2011
The course provides the students a basic understanding of modern Israeli history, politics, culture and identity through lectures, discussions and projects. Among the topics to be explored are: ideational, institutional and material foundations of the state of Israel; Israeli national identity, Israeli society, economy, and foreign and security policies.
Automata, Computability, and Complexity, Spring 2011
This course provides a challenging introduction to some of the central ideas of theoretical computer science. Beginning in antiquity, the course will progress through finite automata, circuits and decision trees, Turing machines and computability, efficient algorithms and reducibility, the P versus NP problem, NP-completeness, the power of randomness, cryptography and one-way functions, computational learning theory, and quantum computing. It examines the classes of problems that can and cannot
From the cannon room to the bat-swinging robot to the bat handle-breaking machine, the engineers at Easton Sports are testing the latest sports equipment for durability, performance and handling and show how science and math are used in the manufacturing of these baseball bats.

Representation and Delivery of City Models
City modelling has a considerable range of potential applications and because of this, as a field of research has attracted a great deal of attention over recent years. Here we reflect on work already reported by the authors in this area, describe some more recent work on improving the system that had been developed and show an example of how city modelling is being applied in practice as a planning tool in the UK.
Discrete Stochastic Processes, Spring 2011
Discrete stochastic processes are essentially probabilistic systems that evolve in time via random changes occurring at discrete fixed or random intervals. This course aims to help students acquire both the mathematical principles and the intuition necessary to create, analyze, and understand insightful models for a broad range of these processes. The range of areas for which discrete stochastic-process models are useful is constantly expanding, and includes many applications in engineering, ph

Finding Their Voice
In the 1920s, thousands of African Americans left the rural South for cities in the North in a movement called "The Great Migration." Their arrival in New York City marked a period called "The Harlem Renaissance." In this video segment from A Walk Through Harlem, we learn that only 30 years earlier many of these descendants of slaves had worked as poor sharecroppers. Although slavery had ended, many blacks were still uneducated. Their shift to the urban North was an attempt to e
