STS.429 Food and Power in the Twentieth Century (MIT)
In this class, food serves as both the subject and the object of historical analysis. As a subject, food has been transformed over the last 100 years, largely as a result of ever more elaborate scientific and technological innovations. From a need to preserve surplus foods for leaner times grew an elaborate array of techniques – drying, freezing, canning, salting, etc – that changed not only what people ate, but how far they could/had to travel, the space in which they lived, their r

But that's exactly what happens when huge sections of Earth's crust crack or slip past one another. The results can range from nearly imperceptible to totally devastating. In this adapted video segment, ZOOM cast members demonstrate how to make a seismometer, the instrument scientists use to measure Earth's big and small vibrations. Closed captioning. Run time 04:51.
Globalization of Science: Opportunities for Competitive Advantage from Science in China, India and B
When Fiona Murray visited research centers in China recently, scientists greeted her quizzically: “People were baffled about what a business school professor was doing in stem cell and gene sequencing labs,” Murray says.
