8.422 Atomic and Optical Physics II (MIT)
This is the second of a two-semester subject sequence beginning with Atomic and Optical Physics I (8.421) that provides the foundations for contemporary research in selected areas of atomic and optical physics. Topics covered include non-classical states of light, multi-photon processes, coherence, trapping and cooling, atomic interactions, and experimental methods.
Evolution Ep1: Darwin's Dangerous Idea (10/11)
Interweaving key moments of drama in Darwin's life with current research, "Darwin's Dangerous Idea" explores why his theory of evolution might matter even more today than it did in his own time. This documentary is suitable for high school grades. Run time 10:21.
This lesson presents words and situations related to news reporting. The video shows a news reader who talks about funny news on TV. There is a definition of the word NEWS and ther are many words presented. You can read them on screen and the presenter names them. There are examples of the new vocabulary.
Evaluation of 'Business Enterprise' Module
This report outlines a process of evaluation for a business enterprise module. This exploratory research investigates the impact of 'contextual' based evaluation of enterprise education curricula

APPLICATION OF FULL-SCALE MODELLING IN VIETNAM: AN OUTLINE FOR DISCUSSION
This paper discusses the possibility of applying full-scale modelling in Vietnam, a non-western so called developing country. It deals with two main questions: 1) Is the application of full-scale modelling to be restricted to the West only? 2) what are the possibilities, constraints and fields of application - with attention to the methodological validity and technical solution for full-scale modelling in Vietnam? It is argued that since full-scale modelling is based on people-environment intera
Slavianskie rukopisi is a superb collection of over 2000 digitised manuscripts from the Trinity-St Sergius Monastery library, prepared in collaboration with the Russian State Library where the manuscripts are now housed. The quality of the images is excellent, and each folio can be enlarged to facilitate close reading. The manuscripts are collated by fond, including: main library (RGB fond 304.I); supplementary library, seventeenth century to 1907 (RGB f.304.II); unique editions (an illuminated

Videos that provide viewers with brain teasers/mental puzzles. These may consist of problems dealing with the arrangement of matchsticks, coins, and other items. May include pencil drawing games, optical illusions, hidden images and "Find the Twin" problems.
The structure of the directory space and subjects search behaviors in the UNIX operating system environment are examined. Protocol analysis with two subjects and survey of the contents of the directory space of all users of E-VAX and X-VAX systems in the Architecture and Computer Science Systems at Carnegie Mellon University were conducted. Depth first search characterized both the organization of the directories and the behavior of the subjects. Single step as opposed to multiple step traversal
Architectural animations often evidence limitations when trying to get across our design intensions in terms of the experiencing of a place. When architects design a space, they propose not only geometry and space functionality, All in all, any architectural design implies a way of experiencing the space. But how can we communicate it? Narrative films developed - in the last century - communication conventions that allow the audience to feel transported to the time and place of the movie. Howeve
With the introduction of physics-based algorithms and modeling environments, design processes have been shifting from the representation of materiality to the simulation of approximate material descriptions. Such computational processes are based upon enacting physical and material behavior, such as gravity, drag, tension, bending, and inflation, within a generative modeling environment. What is often lacking from this strategy is an overall understanding of computational design; that informati
The Campaign for Social Science SW Regional Roadshow aims to raise the profile of social science in the public, media and Parliament, in context of changes to the funding of teaching and research.
Co-evolution and adaptation between viruses and humans are often portrayed as a zero-sum biological arms race. Viruses enter host cells equipped with an array of mechanisms to evade the host defense responses and replicate. The rapid rate of mutation of viruses permits evolution of various methodologies for infection, which in turn drive development of non-specific but highly effective host mechanisms to restrict infection. This class will discuss the varied solutions each side has developed as
The Interpresence Project exercises the language of communication design and mediatecture to propose planetary coalescence through complex and innovative informational flows through cyberspace allowing for human teleactive encounters.
