From Cowboys to Clara Bow: A College Student's Motion Picture Autobiography
Fears about the impact of movies on youth led to the Payne Fund research project, which brought together nineteen social scientists and resulted in eleven published reports.

For a volume that he called Movies and Conduct (1933), Blumer asked more than fifteen hundred college and high school students to write "autobiographies"of their expe

"Eight Hours a Day and Better Conditions": Andrew Pido Explains His Support for the 1919 Steel Strik

Darwin's mother and the miniature: with Randal Keynes
Charles Darwin's mother Susannah Wedgwood died when he was just eight, and he could never remember her face - until he discovered a long-hidden portrait of her as a young woman. Hear Darwin's great-great-grandson Randal Keynes explain why finally seeing this miniature of his mother (on display at the Fitzwilliam Museum) was so significant for the great naturalist, and why portraits of loved ones were so important to both the Wedgwood and Darwin families.

Centrifugal Effect
This simulation represents the case of an object sliding frictionless over the surface of a flat disk that is rotating. I will call the object 'the puck', as in ice hockey. The 'Distance' in the simulation is the distance to the disk's rotation axis. The 'Velocity' is relative to the disk; 0.3 velocity means that at the instant of being launched the puck's velocity relative to the disk is 30% of its co-rotating velocity at that particular distance to the rotation axis. That is, close to the rota

Rotational-vibrational coupling
In molecular physics it is recognized that there is a coupling of rotational and vibrational energy-levels. In molecular physics rotational-vibrational coupling is also called rovibronic coupling and Coriolis coupling. The physics of actual diatomic molecules is more complicated than the example in this animation, but because of its simplicity the animation is useful for illustrating the basic principles.
