Talks @ Pulitzer: Bangladesh Factory Workers - Rights and Reforms
A year after the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, garment factories are being inspected. But even the well-lit ones with workers paid above minimum wage still have problems, including a lack of emergency exits. This is the kind of violation that should shut down a factory until fixed, except that in Bangladesh today, inspectors have no enforcement authority: they merely make recommendations. Pulitzer Center grantees Jason Motlagh and Ken Weiss are joined by Sajeda Amin, senior associa
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
Plato Part 2
Plato was a Classical Greek philosopher. Credited as one
of the founders of Western philosophy, in reality he is an enigmatic
figure known only through other people's accounts. It is Plato's
dialogues that have largely created today's impression of him.
Author Ann Martin talks about Main Street
New York Times bestselling author Ann M. Martin talks about her newest series Main Street. Main Street came about after the Babysitters Club ended. She was not interested in writing another series. But then gave her the idea to write with a large group of characters. Her favorite thing about writing a series is that when she gets to the end of a book she knows there is always another one, she doesn't have to say good-bye to the characters. Favorite character in Main Street is Flora, because she

Introduction to the eBook on your iPad.
In this animated video, students will learn about the travels of Lewis and Clark. The narrator tells of their expedition as they discover animals, rivers. Good illustrations of maps, forts, rivers, etc. are shown. Lewis and Clark had discovered important information about the new United States territory and the people who lived in it, as well as its rivers and mountains, plants and animals. This is a good teaching resource for a lesson/unit on United States History. Content is appropri
Graphing linear equations. This ten-minute video starts off with a black screen because the narrator uses it as a 'chalkboard'. This video is appropriate for high school students.

This secondary electron SEM image shows the cementite delineating prior austenite grain boundaries with a thin layer. The amount of proeutectoid phase is very low, with the majority of the area being taken by the pearlite eutectoid. Again each pearlite cell has a different orientation with the ferrite phase being selectively etched.
Use this documentary to learn -- information contained in the video does not have to interfere with one's faith. It is NOT meant to be inflammatory but informative. Very interesting documentary by one (Robert Beckford, Ph.D) who was raised by a religious mother.
The main goal of this seminar will be to study the nervous system from the perspective of neuron-glia interactions. In each class, we will focus on one type of glial cell and discuss its origin, classification and function within the nervous system. Current findings concerning diseases associated with each type of glial cell will be discussed. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an inte
How is sound created, and how do animals hear? This video segment explores the nighttime worlds of the desert fox and the barn owl, whose heightened sense of hearing allows them to travel and find food while most other animals lie low and wait for daylight. Footage from NOVA: "Mystery of the Senses: Hearing." (1:40)
Students might like this video that explains the Bill of Rights as a rap song. This could set the table for students to create their own rap songs on various Constitutional issues.
This course covers the same material as 18.03 with more emphasis on theory. Topics include first order equations, separation, initial value problems, systems, linear equations, independence of solutions, undetermined coefficients, and singular points and periodic orbits for planar systems.
