Many Planets, One Earth
The early Earth was a much different planet than the one we know today. Ancient rocks provide evidence of the emergence of oxygen in the atmosphere and of a frozen Snowball Earth. Scientists Paul Hoffman and Andrew Knoll look at these clues to help explain the rise of complex animal life.

Eventually the rain stops and he realizes that the rain has actually cle

21L.010 Writing with Shakespeare (MIT)
William Shakespeare didn't go to college. If he time-traveled like Dr. Who, he would be stunned to find his words on a university syllabus. However, he would not be surprised at the way we will be using those words in this class, because the study of rhetoric was essential to all education in his day. At Oxford, William Gager argued that drama allowed undergraduates "to try their voices and confirm their memories, and to frame their speech and conform it to convenient action": in other
This unit is about assessing need. It is important to understand and hear about people's experiences of being assessed by health or social welfare professionals so that more sensitive responses to those with care and support needs can be developed.

Genesis Cap 1 ad 3 Castellionis Biblia Sacra
This is a re-recording, as I want to listen to this later this week on my walk to school. You will notice that the current readings are slower, and more deliberate. This is partly to rest my ears a bit, and I have noticed that if I read too fast, I miss things. The Latin is much denser than the English, or indeed the original Hebrew text, so it needs a slower reading speed.
