Technologies That Changed Our Brains
The Internet is just one in a series of “intellectual technologies” that have reshaped the way humans think. Nicholas Carr discusses some technologies, prior to the Internet, that have radically reshaped the way our brains work. Some of the technologies include the map, clock, and book. This video is in lecture format. (5:00)
BURN - Biosciences Undergraduate Research at Nottingham

6.3 Summary of Section 5
This unit looks at the human being in the context of an individual life cycle, examining some of the processes that contribute to the formation of a new person. After a brief discussion of historical ideas about human conception, and about contraception to the present day, we look at the cells involved in the conception and development of a new individual. Gamete production (that is, production of mature cells able to unite with another in sexual reproduction) in both men and women is introduced
Anarchy means no rulers - according to this commentary. How would societies be organized under anarchy - people would live in small communities - small councils would decided what needs to be done in the community. (Annoying background noise - but the content may be helpful to understanding the topic) (Amateur video)
Deborah Gordon Digs Ants
With a dusty backhoe, a handful of Japanese paint markers and a few students in tow, Deborah Gordon digs up ant colonies in the Arizona desert in search of keys to understanding complex systems. Deborah has spent years sucking insects from their nests, color-coding their abdomens with paint pens, and monitoring the movements of individual ants within colonies. She specifically discusses the ants life cycle, mating habits, colony size and age, task allocation, network of chambers, forging, and

Observations on Collaborative Design and Multimedia Usage in Virtual Design Studio
The virtual design studio (VDS) points to a new way of practicing and teaching architectural design. As a new phenomenon, little research has been done to evaluate design collaboration and multimedia usage in a distributed workplace like the virtual design studio. Our research provides empirical data on how students actually use multiple media during architectural collaborative design.
Paint Scraping Techniques
Scraping is done using a patale knife. Put a lot of paint on your canvas-make sure it is thick. Get a clean palate knife and scrape left to right on your canvas-clean off the excess paint. This creates a sense of motion and blends things together.

Pangolins are mammal's who are covered in scales, making them look like knights in armor-or little tanks. Watch this odd-looking, endangered creature as it forages for food with it's long, sticky tongue. This rare mammal is the exception to the rule, with a scale-like outer covering and no teeth. Run time 01:11
It's got a beak and webbed feet, and it lays eggs. Must be a bird, right? Think again! The platypus is a mammal that doesn't seem to follow all the rules. This short video from National Geographic depicts a platypus. No narration. Video is set to music. Run time 0:30.

One of the areas where the expertise of the seasoned architect comes out is in the initial structuring of design problems. During problem structuring the parameters and processes used in design are defined. Experienced architects modify these parameters both in global and local levels as a function of the success of their research process. Experienced architects also rely on 'scenarios' acquired through pervious experiences with similar problems to initialize their problem structures or to redef
1953 - 1961 Thaw is conceivable with Stalins death. Khrushchev outmaneuvers Malenkov for power and visits the West. Germans, Poles and Hungarians attempt to rise against Soviet rule. In 1956, an uprising in Hungary is ruthlessly crushed by Soviet tanks. The U.S., pledged to contain rather than overthrow communism, does nothing.
The Sarabande is a stately dance. I suppose that when one gets old, then one considers one's age an accomplishment, our continued existence becomes more and more precarious. Harbingers are messengers bringing bad news, in this case grey hairs. He mentions other infirmities: wizening, tooth decay, loss of acquaintances. These things we have to look forward to. It's all downhill from here on, folks. The dance has to end sometime. The picture of Anthony came from here, where there's a perso
