Terrorism, Peace and Other Inconsistencies
Notre Dame OpenCourseware (OCW) offers free educational resources for the course "Terrorism, Peace and Other Inconsistencies" in the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. This course addresses a set of inter-related questions that have become central to peace and security in the modern era, at both the domestic and international levels: What is the history and rationale for contemporary terrorism, including suicide terrorism? What does the rise of al-Qaeda terror mean for a host of pro

"The White Man's Road is Easier!": A Hidatsa Indian Takes up the Ways of the White Man in the Late 1
Following the passage of the Dawes Act in 1887, which forced Plains Indians to give up communal ways of life for individual family farms, many American Indians struggled to adapt to the new ways of life being dictated to them. But while many suffered under the federal government's attempt to exorcise Indian customs and beliefs some, like Edward Goodbird, a member of the Hidatsa tribe in North Dakota, embraced the new order. In this excerpt from his autobiography, Goodbird described the often sub
Inside the Oval Office
As staff secretary to President Dwight Eisenhower from 1954 to 1961, General Andrew Goodpaster was the person most privy to Eisenhower's thinking and key decisions during his White House years. Goodpaster began his long affiliation with Eisenhower as a staff officer under his leadership of the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), and he went on to become the president's right-hand man on security matters.

Undergraduate Computer Programs
Here is a group of Java programs which were designed to help undergraduate engineering students. These programs cover the basics of aerodynamics and propulsion. The icon at the top of each section will take you to a web page which contains a simulator or calculator for an aerodynamics problem. The web page assumes that you understand the problem and contains only the applet and a couple of hyperlinks to additional pages which describe the science and math behind each problem and some additional
You are about ready to start observing and tracking sunspots across the Sun using real images. You can then use this information to determine the rate of the Sun’s rotation.
The Liberty Bell: From Obscurity to Icon
helps students analyze -- through maps, readings, and images -- the historical and cultural influences that shaped the symbolic meaning of the Liberty Bell.
Women of Protest: Photographs from the Records of the National Woman's Party
This site presents 448 photos documenting the National Woman's Party's push for ratification of the 19th Amendment and passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Taken from 1875-1922, these photos include portraits of leaders and tactics used by the organization -- picketing, pageants, parades, demonstrations, and hunger strikes.
Before and After the Great Earthquake and Fire, 1897-1916
This site provides 26 films of San Francisco from before and after the Great Earthquake and Fire. The earthquake struck on April 18, 1906, along the San Andreas Fault, damaging most central California cities and killing more than 3,000 people. These films show Market Street, Chinatown, a parade, San Francisco viewed from a balloon, and vast devastation from the 8.3 magnitude earthquake and 3-day fire.
To link or not to link? Using hypertext wisely
Links are the soul of the web, but make sure they support your content rather than detracting from it.
The purpose of this resource is to teach students about the acidity levels of liquids and other substances around their school so they understand what pH levels tell us about the environment. Students will create mixtures of water samples, soil samples, plants and other natural materials to better understand the importance of pH levels.
Commemoration: visual texts
This unit explores the commemoration of war through treating two war memorials - the Sandham Memorial Chapel and the Royal Artillery Memorial - as 'visual texts'. By helping you to respond to visual cues the unit aims for you to develop your understanding of these memorials, not only as memorials, but as artifacts or 'made objects'. It does this through consideration of such factors as the location of the monument; its function and purpose; its symbolism or realism; use of materials and overall

Erythemal Index 2000: United States Loop
The Erythemal Index is a measure of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at ground level on the Earth. UV exists to the left of the visible spectrum and is divided into three components (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C). UV-B (290-320 wavelengths) is the most dangerous form of UV radiation that can reach ground level. Atmospheric ozone shields life at the surface from most of the harmful components of solar radiation. Chemical processes in the atmosphere can effect the level of protection provided by the ozone in the
Antarctic Ozone from TOMS: July 15, 2001 to October 9, 2001
Satellite data show the area of this years Antarctic ozone hole peaked at about 26 million square kilometers -- roughly the size of North America -- making the hole similar in size to those of the past three years, according to scientists from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Researchers have observed a leveling-off of the hole size and predict a slow recovery.
