Teaching a Child Not to Bite
This short video addresses strategies for teaching a toddler not to bite. Some of the ones mentioned are: consistency, not giving the child too much attention, keeping a close eye on the behavior, and consulting a physician. (02:19)
How To Communicate Your Strengths in a Job Interview
This video provides suggestions for highlighting strengths in job interviews such as relating strengths to job requirements, giving concrete examples of attributes, and turning negatives into positives.
Mercury is the innermost and smallest planet in the Solar System, orbiting the Sun once every 87.969 days. The orbit of Mercury has the highest eccentricity of all the Solar System planets, and it has the smallest axial tilt.
6.170 Laboratory in Software Engineering (MIT)
This course introduces concepts and techniques relevant to the production of large software systems. Students are taught a programming method based on the recognition and description of useful abstractions. Topics include modularity, specification, data abstraction, object modeling, design patterns, and testing. Students complete several programming projects of varying size, working individually and in groups. Students are now introduced to software engineering in 6.005 Elements of Software Cons
11.332J Urban Design (MIT)
For many years, Cambridge, MA, as host to two major research universities, has been the scene of debates as to how best to meet the competing expectations of different stakeholders. Where there has been success, it has frequently been the result, at least in part, of inventive urban design proposals and the design and implementation of new institutional arrangements to accomplish those proposals. Where there has been failure it has often been explained by the inability - or unwillingness - of on
This video explains how a midsegment of a trapezoid is the line segment connecting the midpoints of the two non-parallel sides of a trapezoid. A trapezoid midsegment is parallel to the set of parallel lines in a trapezoid and is equal to the average of the lengths of the bases. A trapezoid midsegment is related to a triangle midsegment given that both of their lengths are proportional to the bases. (2:51)
C++ Console Lesson 27: Switch Statements
More at http://xoax.net
This C++ video tutorial explains how to use switch statements in C++ The main reasons for using a switch include improving clarity, by reducing otherwise repetitive coding, and (if the heuristics permit), offering the potential of faster execution through compiler optimization.
Modeling Architectural Design Objectives in Physically Based Space Planning
Physically based space planning is a means for automating the conceptual design process by applying the physics of motion to space plan elements. This methodology provides for a responsive design process, which allows a designer to easily make decisions whose consequences immediately propagate throughout the design. It combines the speed of automated design methods with the flexibility of manual design methods, while adding a highly interactive quality and a sense of collaboration with the desig
HST.725 Music Perception and Cognition (MIT)
This course is a survey of perceptual and cognitive aspects of the psychology of music, with special emphasis on underlying neuronal and neurocomputational representations and mechanisms. Basic perceptual dimensions of hearing (pitch, timbre, consonance/roughness, loudness, auditory grouping) form salient qualities, contrasts, patterns and streams that are used in music to convey melody, harmony, rhythm and separate voices. Perceptual, cognitive, and neurophysiological aspects of the temporal di
Bed of Nails - Cool Science Experiment
You may have seen your favorite circus performers or magicians perform the classic Bed of Nails Trick... but what is the secret? Using a smaller version of the bed and a clear balloon, you can see the science behind the trick. In this professionally made video, Steve Spangler demonstrates a balloon experiement about force and pressure. Run time 02:02.
21L.448J Darwin and Design (MIT)
Humans are social animals; social demands, both cooperative and competitive, structure our development, our brain and our mind. This course covers social development, social behaviour, social cognition and social neuroscience, in both human and non-human social animals. Topics include altruism, empathy, communication, theory of mind, aggression, power, groups, mating, and morality. Methods include evolutionary biology, neuroscience, cognitive science, social psychology and anthropology.
