Great Zoom out of Houston, Texas: Reliant Stadium
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

5 Giving feedback In order to develop and improve dance skills, students should also be involved in evaluating one another's, and their own, work. Performing for one another in class as part of an evaluation and feedback process can be beneficial to both the students and teacher.

Barack Obama and the World: Saviour or Lame Duck [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Mick Cox | November 4th 2008 marked one of the great political moments in American history when the first black man was elected to the White House.

Literary Festival 2011 - Through the Soviet Looking-Glass [Audio]
Speaker(s): Francis Spufford | At first sight, the USSR of the 1950s and 1960s is a formidably remote and strange place for an early 21st-century western observer to try to inhabit: ideological, materially alien, suffused with obsolete expectations, and operating in its daily life and economic life according to rules that eerily reverse our own. But the reward for crossing this particular imaginative border, argues Francis Spufford, is the discovery, in the mirrorworld of the Soviet Union, of de

He realized that iron and steel were the future and so he started to build his empire in that area. This video is a brief biography, but does not tell about his harsh treatment of union workers and others. It does stress his donations, but does not tell about how he earned his money.
