Kinect Code Camp 2011: Team Chupacabra Last week we had our Kinect launch with a special Channel 9 Live event. Just prior to this we held a 24 hour Code Camp to allow developers to play with the Kinect SDK for 24 hours and see what they could come up with. I interviewed the teams after the event to take a look at their project and get an idea of the challenges and surprises they found as they worked with the SDK. Team Chupacabra consists of Rick Barraza, Adam Kinney, and Dennis Delimarsky. The project leverages Kinect on one

How to Reevaluate Your Career
This three minute video is about re-think a career. Ideas include writing down your strengths, go on informational interviews, see whether you can alter your current job and think about what makes you happy. This is for older students, parents, and even teachers. An upbeat video.
5.111 Principles of Chemical Science (MIT)
This course provides an introduction to the chemistry of biological, inorganic, and organic molecules. The emphasis is on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. In an effort to illuminate connections between chemistry and biology, a list of the biology-, medicine-, and MIT research-related examples used in 5.111 is provided in Biology-Related Examples. Acknowledgements Develop
20.420J Biomolecular Kinetics and Cellular Dynamics (BE.420J) (MIT)
This subject deals primarily with kinetic and equilibrium mathematical models of biomolecular interactions, as well as the application of these quantitative analyses to biological problems across a wide range of levels of organization, from individual molecular interactions to populations of cells.
How to Write Bubble Letters
In this clip learn how to make bubble letters. The craftswoman shows how to write rounded like bubbles, squared-off shape letters, or in a block shape. Stylize bubble letters can be use for a decorative touch.
Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;
STS.330J History and Anthropology of Medicine and Biology (MIT)
This course explores recent historical and anthropological approaches to the study of life, in both medicine and biology. After grounding our conversation in accounts of natural history and medicine that predate the rise of biology as a discipline, we explore modes of theorizing historical and contemporary bioscience. Drawing on the work of historian William Coleman, we examine the forms, functions, and transformations of biological and medical objects of study. Along the way we treat the histor
Get To Know Your Huskies - Jon Leroux
Rachel Holt of GoNUxstream sits down with Junior Jon Leroux of the Northeastern Baseball team on this segment of Get To Know Your Huskies.
Injection-moulded polystyrene ruler
The colours in the image are the result of birefringence and relate to the residual strain in the polystyrene. The pattern of strain is indicative of the flow of material during the injection process and it highlights the injection point (known as a 'gate') at the end of the ruler; the molecular alignment is greatest near this point. Towards the edges of the ruler and along its length, the material becomes more relaxed and as the molecular alignment falls, the retardation of light is less. If
10.490 Integrated Chemical Engineering I (MIT)
This course uses reaction kinetics, batch reactor analysis, batch distillation, batch operations scheduling, safety analysis, and the ABACUSS process simulator to introduce process design and analysis techniques. Acknowledgements The materials for the Fall 2006 offering of this course were drawn extensively from the materials that Professor Paul Barton used while teaching this course in past years. We are indebted to him for his long service to 10.490.

Certificacion de Turismo Responsable
A lecture on sustainable tourism delivered in Spanish.
Capturing design context in distributed communication of software engineers
Software engineering is a knowledge-intensive activity. It requires developers be aware of changing requirements, involvement of others, and the overall status of the project. Code, as the embodiment of developersâ intent, does not represent all knowledge required to work on the project successfully. Even in projects with the best software process practices, where requirement and design documents, bug databases, and source control software are kept up-to-date, most knowledge is still containe
Clauses and Compound Sentences
This teacher produced slide show and lecture discusses clauses and compound sentences. A clause is a unit that contains and subject and a verb. Coordinating conjunctions join clauses to form compound sentences. (5:04)
Where to Now for Just War Theory?
Professor Jeff McMahan (Rutgers) with Dr Janina Dill and Dr Hugo Slim (ELAC, Oxford) discuss the Just War theory for the Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict seminar series on 8th February 2013.
