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.
7.013 Introductory Biology (MIT)
The MIT Biology Department core courses, 7.012, 7.013, and 7.014, all cover the same core material, which includes the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Biological function at the molecular level is particularly emphasized and covers the structure and regulation of genes, as well as, the structure and synthesis of proteins, how these molecules are integrated into cells, and how these cells are integrated into multicellular systems and organism
Science Communication and Science Literacy: A Round Table Discussion (Part 2)
By: icamvid K. C. Cole, George Johnson, and Barbara Schall conduct a round table discussion on science communication and science literacy at the 2012 "Becoming Engaged" Workshop.
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
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
Reactions to the Sinking of the Lusitania
This professionally-made video describes the world-wide reaction of the sinking of the Lusitania as unanimous in outrage towards Germany. The segment contains photos, copies of newspaper headlines, and video segments. ( 2:17)
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.

RVC 43 - Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinoses (NCLs)
Dr Claire Russell discusses the molecular basis and the clinical impact of a series of inherited degenerative neurological diseases – the neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs) - of humans and dogs, with particular reference to her studies aimed at identifying the genetic defects implicated and ameliorating their effects.

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.
