The Anti-Vaccination Movement: Replacing Science with Superstition
Dr. Greg Forbes, GRCC Biology Professor, presents that more than 2 centuries have passed since the first vaccines were used to prevent disease and the disabilities and death associated with these diseases. However, even after the prevention of many millions of deaths, vaccine skeptics and vaccine conspiracy theories appear to be increasing in frequency even in the light of a proponderous of scientific fact validating the efficacy and safety of vaccines. This presentation will provide an overvi
This, That, These and Those
This is a short video lesson about the demonstratives with interactive exercises. Questions are asked about the demonstrative pronouns, this, that, these, and using picture examples to choose from. Very slow paced and simple for younger viewers or ESL students.

1.2 MOS structures Carefully designed metal–oxide–semiconductor (MOS) structures are a common building block in digital electronics, primarily intended to form part of a transistor-based switch. However, throughout the active regions of a microelectronic chip there will be secondary MOS structures that arise because metal tracks are insulated from the semiconductor substrate by a layer of oxide; equally careful design is necessary to ensure that these do not form part of a switch. The acronym is a mixture o
