The Rise of Modern Science, Fall 2010
This subject introduces the history of science from antiquity to the present. Students consider the impact of philosophy, art, magic, social structure, and folk knowledge on the development of what has come to be called "science" in the Western tradition, including those fields today designated as physics, biology, chemistry, medicine, astronomy and the mind sciences. Topics include concepts of matter, nature, motion, body, heavens, and mind as these have been shaped over the course of history.

Star Life
Visitors to this site can follow the life cycle of a star, beginning with its formation from matter exploded outward by the Big Bang, followed by its expansion into a red giant as nuclear "fuel" is consumed, and ending with its "death" in a supernova, after which it becomes a neutron star or black hole.

High Performance Computing with Wenming Ye

If there were a special geek merit badge for those whose desktop PC has the word "CRAY" across the front, Wenming Ye would have plenty of them. Wenming works just down the hallway from us on Channel 9 exploring the possibilities of HPC (High Performance Computing). I wanted Niners to meet Wenming and see some of the interesting projects he's working on and find out how the cloud has changed supercomputing. 

This week Wenming is at

Differential Equation Model
This video explains how a function can be modeled using a differential equation if it is growing or shrinking exponentially.  In the differential equation model, k is a constant that determines if the function is growing or shrinking.  If k is greater than 1, the function is growing.  If it is less than 1, the function is shrinking.  (2:20)

"The Idea of Order at Key West" by Wallace Stevens (poetry reading)
One can gain insight into what poets are trying to convey from listening to them read their poems. Most poets read with a conspicuous mannerism which, I suggest, mimics a pattern of speech they heard in early life that had a powerful influence on them. In Bukowski's work, for instance, I'm sure I hear the dismissive, jeering voice of his abusive father. Wallace Stevens reads with a "dying fall", as though he's casting a spell - somewhat like a preacher reading a lesson. Listen to Wallace S

Le développement de l'intelligence chez l'enfant - Olivier HOUDE (video)

Conférence du 25 janvier 2000 par Olivier Houde.

D'où détenons-nous ce précieux trésor qu'est notre intelligence ? Pour René Descartes (1596-1650), la réponse était simple : Dieu a déposé dans notre esprit, dès la naissance, des idées logico-mathématiques claires et distinctes, noyau de l'intelligence humaine. Quatre siècles plus tard, en ce début 2000, quelle réponse apporte la science à cette question ?

Pouvoir dominical et christianisation dans la société esclavagiste (Guadeloupe, Martinique, XVIIe-
Selon l'article 2 du code noir, les esclaves doivent être baptisés et instruits. La christianisation est-elle ainsi un élément structurant ou une force potentiellement déstabilisatrice du système colonial ? La position des pouvoirs publics évoluent selon les périodes. Au début, la religion justifie l'esclavage afin de sauver les âmes des déportés. Puis, elle assoie le système colonial en promettant l'espérance d'une vie meilleure dans l'au-delà afin de contenir les esclaves. Enfin
