LSE Literary Weekend - Speaking of Love
Editors note: We apologise for the poor audio quality of this podcast. Four very different writers consider four very different aspects of love: love as enchantment, and love as madness; passion in youth, and compassion in age. They read their favourite passages on love both from their own work, and from the work of others, and, on Valentine’s eve, discuss Shakespeare’s notion that 'The lunatic, the lover and the poet are of imagination all compact'.

Stokes' Law Exercise for "Rocks and Minerals"
In this activity students are led through a qualitative/semi-quantitative derivation of Stokes' Law. Lab groups brainstorm on and hypothesize about what factors will affect settling velocity. They then time the settling of various objects of known composition and size through different fluids of known viscosity to validate or invalidate their hypothesis. Additional activities that can go along with this exercise are outlined in the downloadable teaching notes on page. The site also includes a li

2 Britain's oldest rocks: remnants of Archaean crust
Some of Britain’s most dramatic scenery is to be found in the Scottish Highlands. The sight of mighty Ben Nevis, the desolate plateau of the Cairngorms, or the imposing landscapes of Glen Coe can unleash the call of the wild in all of us. Although these landforms were largely carved by glacial activity that ended some 10,000 years ago, the rocks themselves tell of a much older history. The Highlands are merely eroded stumps of a much higher range of ancient mountains. This unit is an account o
