Challenging the paradigm of materialism - Jay Lakhani
Jay Lakhani, a Theoretical Physicist, explores the findings at the cutting edge of modern Physics and how they relate to the broader ideas of spirituality at the heart of Hindu tradition.
Europe as a Global Actor? A Conversation with Javier Solana
After ten years of serving as EU High Representative for CFSP, Javier Solana reflects on the achievements and challenges ahead for Europe as a global security actor with Professor Mary Kaldor. Javier Solana is a Senior Visiting Professor at the LSE Global Governance. He was formerly the Secretary General of the Council of the EU and EU High Representative for CSFP (October 1999 - December 2009). Prior to that, he was the Secretary General of NATO from 1995 – 1999. He is a former physics profes
Warning: Physics Envy May be Hazardous to Your Wealth
In this talk Andrew Lo addresses the problem of finding the right level of abstraction with which to think about economic phenomena. He compares economics to physics, with some surprising results.
For at least several decades economics theorists have assumed that the highest level of abstraction is the best. Lo argues
TALAT Lecture 2501: Fire Protection and Regulation
This lecture helps to understand the characteristics of fire, the conditions for its occurrence and development; it introduces definition and terms of fire resistance and protection. General engineering or physics background is assumed.
22.611J Introduction to Plasma Physics I (MIT)
In this course, students will learn about plasmas, the fourth state of matter. The plasma state dominates the visible universe, and is of increasing economic importance. Plasmas behave in lots of interesting and sometimes unexpected ways. The course is intended only as a first plasma physics course, but includes critical concepts needed for a foundation for further study. A solid undergraduate background in classical physics, electromagnetic theory including Maxwell's equations, and mathema
How Regular Verbs Are Pronounced in the Past Tense
This video shows how to pronounce regular verbs in the past tense in English. Examples of words are cook, stop, miss, rub, buzz, want, need (2:36).
Paper Planes and Aerodynamics
This video contains a lesson given to a fourth grade class. Watch as the students learn some very basic principles of aerodynamics. A general history of aviation is given - beginning with the Wright brothers. Video quality is mediocre but the video content is informative.

Learn about the physics of resistance in a wire. Change its resistivity, length, and area to see how they affect the wire's resistance. The sizes of the symbols in the equation change along with the diagram of a wire.
Science in its earliest beginnings consisted of a practice called alchemy. Alchemy includes the study of chemistry, biology, astronomy, spirituality, physics, and art. Distillation or experiments in purification of substances may have been a part of the practice of alchemy.

Quantum Information Processing aims at harnessing quantum physics to conceive and build devices that could dramatically exceed the capabilities of today's "classical" computation and communciation systems. In this course, we will introduce the basic concepts of this rapidly developing field. Study Goals: To understand the operation, potential, and limitations of the main theoretical results (algorithms, error correction, communication) To be able to use the formalism of quantum information (uni
This subject traces the evolution of ideas about nature, and how best to study and explain natural phenomena, beginning in ancient times and continuing through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. A central theme of the subject is the intertwining of conceptual and institutional relations within diverse areas of inquiry: cosmology, natural history, physics, mathematics, and medicine.
This paper first presents a history of Computer-Assisted Learning (CAL), setting its origins in the 1920s with the invention of mechanical learning machines. The use of the computer then allowed the development of different types of language learning activities: comprehension tasks, simulations, etc. However, without the contribution of natural language processing (NLP), these activities are of limited use. We address the problem of the integration of NLP in CALL systems while summing up the cha
Constantly providing feedback to on-line learning teams is a challenging yet one of the latest and most attractive issues to influence learning experience in a positive manner. The possibility to enhance learning groups participation by means of providing appropriate feedback is rapidly gaining popularity due to its great impact on group performance and outcomes. Indeed, by storing parameters of interaction such as participation behaviour and giving constant feedback of these parameters to the
