Fundamentals of Die Casting Design
This book describes the fundamentals of design of the die casting process and die mold/runner. It is intended for people who have at least some knowledge of the basics of fundamental science, such calculus, physics etc. This book will benefit the die casting engineer (the project and process engineers) as well as managers and anyone else who deals with the die casting operations will find this information useful.

The Spotlight - BioPhysics: A Tale of Two Sciences
Features an interview with Cecile Fradin (Canada Research Chair in Molecular Biophysics) who holds an appointment in both the Department of Physics & Astronomy and the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences at McMaster University. Also includes interviews with graduate and undergraduate students working in the BioPhysics Lab.
The Great Magnet, the Earth
This site provides a non-mathematical introduction to the magnetism of the Earth, the Sun, the planets and their environments, following a historical thread. In 1600, four hundred years ago William Gilbert, later physician to Queen Elizabeth I of England, published his great study of magnetism, "De Magnete"--"On the Magnet". It gave the first rational explanation to the mysterious ability of the compass needle to point north-south: the Earth itself was magnetic. "De Magnete" opened the era of mo
Staying in the Employment Game: Part 1
Experts from the University of Washington and throughout the Puget Sound gather to offer input and insight into employment challenges for people with MS. Learn when to disclose your disease to an employer, how to arrange for accommodations in the office, your legal rights and more. Featured panel members will include Ray Heacox, president and general manager of Belo Seattle, KING/KONG and Northwest Cable News; lawyer Andrea Brenneke of MacDonald Hoague & Bayless; Dr. Kurt Johnson of UW Rehab
22.033 Nuclear Systems Design Project (MIT)
Group design project involving integration of nuclear physics, particle transport, control, heat transfer, safety, instrumentation, materials, environmental impact, and economic optimization. Provides students with opportunity to synthesize knowledge acquired in nuclear and non-nuclear subjects and apply this knowledge to practical problems of current interest in nuclear applications design. Past projects have included using a fusion reactor for transmutation of nuclear waste, design and develop
Stull Observatory : Alfred University Commercial
In "Stull Observatory," we talk about some of the faculty who inspire our students to accomplish some pretty remarkable things. Dr. John Stull, a retired physics professor (and AU alum) has spent a lifetime refurbishing the AU observatory into one of the largest, and finest, academic observatories in the nation. You'll meet him, and see the results of his work, in "Stull Observatory."

Space Station Live: Doctor, Flight Surgeon, Astronaut
NASA Commentator Lori Meggs at the Marshall Space Flight Center speaks with NASA Astronaut Tom Marshburn about his time on the International Space Station during Expedition 34/35, the challenges of keeping up with processes, payloads, and procedures, and why it’s all so important.
Seminar in Ethnography and Fieldwork, Fall 2003
Introduction to ethnographic practices: the study of and communicating about culture. Reading and discussion of classics of anthropological field work, contemporary critiques, and innovative practices. This course involves reading about how to do fieldwork, practicing fieldwork, reading ethnographies and about ethnography, and practicing writing ethnography. We will move from an overview of ethnography, to getting into the field, to writing fieldnotes, to analyzing data and writing a short ethno
The backyards of Williamsburg's finest homes tell the story of a separate society. Author Mike Olmert reads the architecture of outbuildings.
STS.042J Einstein, Oppenheimer, Feynman: Physics in the 20th Century (MIT)
This class explores the changing roles of physics and physicists during the 20th century. Topics range from relativity theory and quantum mechanics to high-energy physics and cosmology. The course also examines the development of modern physics within shifting institutional, cultural, and political contexts, such as physics in Imperial Britain, Nazi Germany, U.S. efforts during World War II, and physicists' roles during the Cold War.
Laughlin on the Future of Carbon and Climate
Robert Laughlin of Stanford University and the 1998 co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about energy use and the future of the earth's climate. Drawing on his forthcoming book on energy, Laughlin predicts that we will continue to use cars and planes and electricity long after coal and petroleum are exhausted and speculates as to how that might play out in the future. The conversation concludes with discussions of other concerns of Laughlin's--the outl
A Critical Evaluation of Early Stages Software in its Capacity of Coping with Contextual Issues
In this paper we analyse critically early design stages software in its capacity of coping with contextual data at large (i.e. representing cultural, aesthetical context, etc.). We identified 5 categories of early stages software: geometry based graphic editors, evaluation architectural software, generative and shape-grammar based systems, evolutionary systems and other systems. Calling the object under creation during of the early stages a CAD conceptual model, we will investigate to what exten
South Royalton After 40 Years STS.003 The Rise of Modern Science (MIT) Stormy Days Ahead - John Kettley
From the panel recorded at the 2014 Austrian Economics Research Conference in Auburn, Alabama, on 22 March 2014. Sponsored by Jing Jin and Wai Chan.
This course studies the development of modern science from the seventeenth century to the present, focusing on Europe and the United States. Key questions include: What is science, and how is it done? How are discoveries made and accepted? What is the nature of scientific progress? What is the impact of science on society? What is the impact of society on science? Topics will be drawn from the histories of physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, and medicine.AcknowledgementThis class is based o
John worked at the meteorological office at Manchester Airport for two years from 1970 before studying Applied Physics at what is now Coventry University. From 1980 he worked at the Nottingham Weather Centre, presenting his first forecast for Radio Lincolnshire, then further forecasts for Midlands Today. In 1985 he became a national forecaster on the BBC.
