The Castle by Edwin Muir (poetry reading)
Your enemy might not fight fair, so don't be too complacent. All it takes to defeat you is for someone you trust to be corruptible. The paintings are just to provide atmosphere. The first is Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland. The second by Diego Rivera shows Cortez taking a bribe. Photograph of Edwin Muir was by Mark Gerson: http://www.npgprints.com/image/404606/mark-gerson-edwin-muir All through that summer at ease we lay, And daily from the turret wall We watched the mowers in the hay
CRM: Making it work
CRM, customer relationship management, promised more loyal customers and much more profit for companies. Yet it has often failed to deliver the expected return from the substantial investment required. Stan Maklan describes ways to make CRM successful so that it is a win-win; a win for the customer and a win for the company.
How Can I Graduate?
"How Can I Graduate" outlines the steps toward graduation for CSUN undergraduates in the College of Health and Human Development. While the steps described here are generally consistent across campus, it is recommended that students from other colleges check with their advisors for variations unique to their colleges. This video was produced for the Student Services Center/Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) in the College of Health and Human Development by CSUN VISCOM. Music and sound by

Is the world any closer to closing the gender gap?
Despite improvement in the health and education spheres, women still fall behind in economic sectors around the world. Listen to what World Economic Forum Senior Director Saadia Zahidi tells Reuters Michelle Nichols about the 2011 Global Gender Gap report.
Teaching: • Start in supine position on bench • Keep shoulder blades pinched together and feet flat on ground • Always keep head and hips on bench • Line hands up with bar markers for appropriate hand width; hand placement should be wide enough so when bar is lowered wrists stay in line with elbows Coaching: • After lift off from spotter lower bar to midline of chest • Lower weights in control to chest and drive weights up back to start position • Keep wrists straight and core tig
Derivatives of Logarithmic Functions - Problem 3
This video demonstrates how to use the change of base formula to find the derivative of a logarithmic function. Derivatives of logarithmic functions are simpler than they would seem to be, even though the functions themselves come from an important limit in Calculus. (2:57)
Walter's Pond at Odon, Indiana
Odon was originally laid out as Clarksburg in 1846, but the town name was changed on April 4, 1881. Two of the biggest advocates for the change were Joe Dun Laughlin and Caleb O’Dell; thus the “O” and “Dun” from their names were put together to form Odon. Here are some Odon citizens dressed in their Sunday best out for a stroll at Walter's Pond. They have spotted some wildlife up on the hill in the distance.,Daviess County Journey,Addressed to: Miss Gertrude Dobbins, 1221 Pleasant St.,

Dancing with Symmetry to Harness the Power of Complexity: Subjective Programming in Context | Lang.N At any instant when you are programming, some details rise to the foreground and others recede into the background context. The manner in which the programming language supports context profoundly affects the ease of evolution and reuse. We propose a language paradigm that amplifies the power of object-oriented programming by explicitly supporting multi-dimensional context, and using it for dispatch and for program organization. The dispatch rules reduce to familiar delegation in the one- dim

Jim Madigan post game • Nov. 5, 2011
The Northeastern men's hockey team gave up a two-goal lead to No. 7 Merrimack on Saturday night at Matthews Arena and ultimately lost in overtime, 3-2. Merrimack's Ryan Flanigan ended the contest on a breakaway in overtime to issue the Huskies their fifth setback on the season. Senior captain Mike McLaughlin led the way for the Huskies, netting his third goal of the season and chipped in an assist for his first multi-point outing of the season. Sophomore Rob Dongara put away his first goal of th
Smart contact lenses at Auburn could make eye drops a thing of the past
An Auburn University team of chemical and biomedical engineers led by Mark Byrne, the Daniel F. and Josephine Breeden associate professor in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, has developed a new method to deliver eye medication by wearing contact lenses. Byrne's lenses are the first to release drug doses over time for as long as the contact should be worn. The lenses deliver a constant flow of medication without altering a patient's natural vision, or can be used to correct vision while a
What Is Power? (One Minute Video Dictionary Series)
In this short video, students will learn about the vocabulary word "power". Power is defined in several ways---a source or means of supplying energy, a great physical might, as an adjective, influence over others (powerful person), to produce an effect. This is a great resource when introducing power into the elementary classroom. (0:49)

OSIRIS REx: Tapping Asteroid RQ36
Dante Lauretta, Ph.D. and professor in the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Sciences Laboratory, started his career at the UA as a math major. As a young student, he was accepted into the NASA Space Grant Undergraduate Research Program. Today, he is the principle investigator on the OSIRIS REx mission to return a sample of pristine, carbon-rich material from asteroid 1999 RQ36. Such material may just contain precursors to key biomolecules that could tell us how life on Earth began. Th
