The Industrial Revolution: The Steam Engine
By the late 1700s, the coal powered steam engine was widely used in English factories. Its operation, based on valve-piston action, was a great advancement for its time, further increasing industrial productivity. This video does a good job of showing how the steam engine works and its importance in the Industrial Revolution. Best used as part of a study on technology and/or with a drawing of a steam engine as the video is short.

The Thistle and the Drone [Audio]
Speaker(s): Ambassador Akbar Ahmed | The United States declared war on terrorism in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. More than ten years later, the results are decidedly mixed. In The Thistle and the Drone, world-renowned author, diplomat, and scholar Akbar Ahmed, reveals a tremendously important yet largely unrecognized adverse effect of these campaigns: they actually have exacerbated the already-broken relationship between central governments and the tribal societies on their periphery.

7.342 Developmental and Molecular Biology of Regeneration (MIT)
How does a regenerating animal "know" what's missing? How are stem cells or differentiated cells used to create new tissues during regeneration? In this class we will take a comparative approach to explore this fascinating problem by critically examining classic and modern scientific literature about the developmental and molecular biology of regeneration. We will learn about conserved developmental pathways that are necessary for regeneration, and we will discuss the relevance of thes

Cu 21, Sn 79 (wt%), peritectic transformation
This microstructure is generated via a peritectic reaction (L+ε = η), which bears some similarities to the more familiar eutectic reaction (L = α + β). Upon cooling from the liquid phase field, primary ε is formed, which can be seen here as a slightly darker phase than the sheath of η surrounding it. The η sheath is the product of a peritectic reaction between ε and liquid. The peritectic reaction rarely goes to completion, since the formation of η around the ε phase separates it from

"Regenerative Medicine: from Bench to Bedside, Spring 2010"
"Regenerative medicine involves the repair and regeneration of tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as replacing bone marrow in leukemia, cartilage in osteoarthritis or cells of the heart after a heart attack. In this course, we will explore basic mechanisms of how cells differentiate into specific tissues in response to a variety of biologic signaling molecules. We will discuss the use of such factors for in vitro tissue production. We will also study the cellular mechanisms involved in the c
