Awesome Alliteration by Amazing American Academians
Here you will find a slide show video put together by early elementary students to give examples of alliteration. The slides give clear and examples of how to use alliteration. Some of children's narration is garbled and the video quality is fair. Worth a look at the children's work. (2:52)
4.303 The Production of Space: Art, Architecture and Urbanism in Dialogue (MIT)
This seminar engages in the notion of space from various points of departure. The goal is first of all to engage in the term and secondly to examine possibilities of art, architecture within urban settings in order to produce what is your interpretation of space.
6.895 Theory of Parallel Systems (SMA 5509) (MIT)
6.895 covers theoretical foundations of general-purpose parallel computing systems, from languages to architecture. The focus is on the algorithmic underpinnings of parallel systems. The topics for the class will vary depending on student interest, but will likely include multithreading, synchronization, race detection, load balancing, memory consistency, routing networks, message-routing algorithms, and VLSI layout theory. The class will emphasize randomized algorithms and probabilistic an
Ense?anza de la representaci?n manual y digital, para arquitectos y dise?adores [Teaching Hand and D
The supremacy of the digital means of representation and communication and the resulting shift of the manual means in the field of design and architecture, have engendered multiple opinions and literature. They focus and analyze the virtues and risks, the losses and substitutions, and the different expressive, productive and conceptual results of their leading role in the creative process. Furthermore, if we consider both as two extremes, apparently opposed, a broad panorama of combinations and
Learn English 27 - Clothes
A short movie clip that takes place in a clothing store that shows how how to use may, might, and maybe in sentences. Examples are reviewed when may, might, and maybe were used in the movie in a sentence.
Creacion/Creatividad: Evaluando Dise?os Arquitect?nicos con Realidad Virtual (Creation/Creativity: E
?Can the computer improves the architectural creativity? This question is explored through a Virtual-Reality system developed for the modeling of timber structures, based on parametric elements, constructive programming and immersive visualization on real-time. Making experiences of evaluation with advanced students of architecture, whose use the system in the beginning of projects, compared with other group use not the system. This research faces the possibilities to rationalizate part of the c
Enlisted soldier delivers on personal promise to get college degree.
Christine is a proud veteran of the U.S. Army. Married, with three children, Christine had always intended on getting a college degree, but as she says "life got in the way." While stationed at Penn State she got connected with Penn State Adult Learner Programs who not only helped with getting her acclimated to college life but encouraged her to think about studying abroad. Watch and see where Christine's journey takes her. Produced by: Adult Learner Programs
Article :: Pyrotechnics: Creating Fire, Explosions, and Energy Phenomena in After Effects 7.0
Humans are so familiar with fire that we can tell when it looks wrong, even if we don't understand the physics of explosions and fireworks. By using Mark Christiansen's After Effects techniques, however, you can provide at the compositing stage what the filmmaker couldn't afford on set: realism.
This film shows footage of the nature and the vastness of the Northernmost region. The film depicts the balance of nature and survival with breath taking scenery and shows the Inuit who inhabit the Arctic to this day.
8.13-14 Experimental Physics I & II "Junior Lab" (MIT)
Junior Lab consists of two undergraduate courses in experimental physics. The courses are offered by the MIT Physics Department, and are usually taken by Juniors (hence the name). Officially, the courses are called Experimental Physics I and II and are numbered 8.13 for the first half, given in the fall semester, and 8.14 for the second half, given in the spring. The purposes of Junior Lab are to give students hands-on experience with some of the experimental basis of modern physics and, in the
Translational Protein Design
Dr. David Baker, UW Professor of Biochemistry and Director of the UW Institute for Protein Design (IPD) presents this edition of the Presidential Entrepreneurial Lecture. Dr. Baker discusses his Rosetta software suite, how the entrepreneurial spirit of his lab has led to the formation of several UW commercial spin-off companies, and the projects he has in store aimed at future therapeutic and diagnostic applications. Dr. Baker is recognized worldwide for his breakthroughs in creating new protein
Long ago, only the rich could afford colorful textiles. The search for new colors in the mid 1800s boosted the development of modern chemistry. Color is explained in terms of light and pigment. Join with experts to observe chemistry in action. Synthetic dyes were first discovered by an 18 year old chemist, and the video demonstrates how the first one was accidentally discovered.

The Nagual Experiment
This paper refers to an experiment about the use of artificial life structures in order to simulate/evocate natural or artificial patterns. These patterns are the effect of the self-organisation of a population of individuals during their process of development and growth. Although the local dynamics and interactions have a chaotic (partially random) behaviour, the global dynamics of the population produces interesting and well structured patterns. The graphic images generated with these procedu

This expos? introduces preparations for a publication based on what I have found to be a ?missing link? in the library of educational source materials. The skills necessary to record and interpret the complexity of the architectural design process are often illusive. The sophistication of computer modeling and graphics applications only adds to the dilemma of making clear and concise decisions about how to communicate the essence of one?s design intent. The publication will define and illustrate
This presentation discusses Drucker's thesis that failure is a "good thing" if the opportunities that arise from such failure allow the development of personal and enterprise skills
