Pig Tissue Transplants
One in 20 people will need some kind of tissue transplant during their life. Doctors are getting help from pigs to heal everything from hernias to wounds. Run time 01:37.
Transplant Cells, Not Organs
Pioneering surgeon Susan Lim performed the first liver transplant in Asia. But a moral concern with transplants (where do donor livers come from ...) led her to look further, and to ask: Could we be transplanting cells, not whole organs? At the INK Conference, she talks through her new research, discovering healing cells in some surprising places. (16:22)
Hooked by an Octopus
Underwater filmmaker Mike deGruy has spent decades looking intimately at the ocean. A consummate storyteller, he takes the stage at Mission Blue to share his awe and excitement -- and his fears -- about the blue heart of our planet. Run time 16:30.
5.80 Small-Molecule Spectroscopy and Dynamics (MIT)
The goal of this course is to illustrate the spectroscopy of small molecules in the gas phase: quantum mechanical effective Hamiltonian models for rotational, vibrational, and electronic structure; transition selection rules and relative intensities; diagnostic patterns and experimental methods for the assignment of non-textbook spectra; breakdown of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation (spectroscopic perturbations); the stationary phase approximation; nondegenerate and quasidegenerate perturbatio
Protecting the Future of Food One Seed at a Time
The varieties of wheat, corn and rice we grow today may not thrive in a future threatened by climate change. Cary Fowler takes us inside a vast global seed bank, buried within a frozen mountain in Norway, that stores a diverse group of food-crop for whatever tomorrow may bring. Run time 17:06.
9.12 Experimental Molecular Neurobiology (MIT)
Designed for students without previous experience in techniques of cellular and molecular biology, this class teaches basic experimental techniques in cellular and molecular neurobiology. Experimental approaches covered include tissue culture of neuronal cell lines, dissection and culture of brain cells, DNA manipulation, synaptic protein analysis, immunocytochemistry, and fluorescent microscopy.
Whales Give Dolphins a Lift
Science Bulletins: Many species interact in the wild, most often as predator and prey. But recent encounters between humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins reveal a playful side to interspecies interaction. In two different locations in Hawaii, scientists watched as dolphins “rode” the heads of whales: the whales lifted the dolphins up and out of the water, and then the dolphins slid back down. The two species seemed to cooperate in the activity, and neither displayed signs of
3.052 Nanomechanics of Materials and Biomaterials (MIT)
This course focuses on the latest scientific developments and discoveries in the field of nanomechanics, the study of forces and motion on extremely tiny (10-9 m) areas of synthetic and biological materials and structures. At this level, mechanical properties are intimately related to chemistry, physics, and quantum mechanics. Most lectures will consist of a theoretical component that will then be compared to recent experimental data (case studies) in the literature. The course begins with a ser
Evolving board evaluation fuctions for a complex strategy game
The development of board evaluation functions for complex strategy games has been approached in a variety of ways. The analysis of game interactions is recognized as a valid analogy to common real-world problems, which often present difficulty in designing algorithms to solve them. Genetic programming, as a branch of evolutionary computation,provides advantages over traditional algorithms in solving these complex real-world problems in speed, robustness and flexibility. This thesis attempts to a
Jeff Gold Inaugural Lecture - The Leader's Conundrum or 'You cannot lift yourself up by your own shi
The aim of the lecture will be to do demonstrate the need to challenge continuing traditional images of leaders, often depicted at the apex of things, on top of a hill or at the centre of a complex web of activity. I will argue that those nominated as leaders MUST become aware of what I will call the leader's conundrum and complement their inspiration with 99 x perspiration. To appreciate this call, attendees to the lecture as respectfully asked to do the following just before the lecture: a.

Modeling Architectural Design Objectives in Physically Based Space Planning
Physically based space planning is a means for automating the conceptual design process by applying the physics of motion to space plan elements. This methodology provides for a responsive design process, which allows a designer to easily make decisions whose consequences immediately propagate throughout the design. It combines the speed of automated design methods with the flexibility of manual design methods, while adding a highly interactive quality and a sense of collaboration with the desig
Teaching Teachers How to Teach
A Ted presentation with Alan Kay. A 20 minute video with lots of insights, but is best used for teachers in a group setting to decide which ideas they feel are worthy of pursuing. Lots of interesting tidbits worth more time. Best for older students and teachers. Raises questions about one's perspective.
