Introduction to Philosophy
This course is an introduction to philosophy for students seeking (or being forced) to fulfill the first of their university philosophy requirements. The course is intended to introduce you to philosophical questions, to make you aware of how some of history's greatest philosophers have approached those questions and what they have had to say about them, to help you articulate philosophical concerns of your own and, most importantly, to learn how to address them. Among the areas of philosophy wi

Human rights and ICT policy
This unit provides an overview of Human Rights conventions, the different "generations" of human rights, how these can be interpreted in the context of the "information society" and explicitly as communication rights, and how the securing of communication rights is a fundamental pillar in securing all human, economic, social, cultural, civil and political rights and why it is important to apply a human rights perspective in the development of ICT policy.

Swinging Pendulum (for High School)
This activity shows students the engineering importance of understanding the laws of mechanical energy. More specifically, it demonstrates how potential energy can be converted to kinetic energy and back again. Given a pendulum height, students calculate and predict how fast the pendulum will swing by using the equations for potential and kinetic energy. The equations will be justified as students experimentally measure the speed of the pendulum and compare theory with reality.
Lesson plan with word search activity which aims to teach children about the metamorphosis and development of an amphibian from tadpole to frog.
Oricalco - thermal shape memory fabric
The first orthogonal weaving example of Nitinol. The 'Thermal Shape Memory Alloy' is characterized by its extraordinary ability to recover any shape, pre-programmed, upon heating. Until today this light weight alloy with about 50% Titanium inside has been used in advanced sectors like space and recently in medical applications. Moreover this fabric is the first for which the shape memory alloy, named Nitinol, was weaved orthogonally that is to say that Oricalco is the first fabric with shape mem
Mitochondrial DNA Launois-Bensaude's Lipomatosis
Even though Brodie is said to have first described diffuse symmetrical lipomatosis with predilection for the neck already in the 1846 (Clinical Lectures on Surgery, Delivered at St. George's Hospital Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard pub. Pp 201-201. Brodie, B.C.) the pathogenesis of Launois Bensaude' Lipomatosis is still unknown.

Potatoes vs. Late Blight: Plants at War and Peace
Plant genome research is already revolutionizing the field of biology. Currently, scientists are unlocking the secrets of some of the most important plants in our lives, including corn, cotton and potatoes. Secrets of Plant Genomes: Revealed! takes viewers on a lively, upbeat journey that explores how these plants got to be the way they are and investigates how we can make better use of them in the future. Plant scientists are hard at work--in the lab, in the field and at the computer--to increa
"On the Night When the Levee Broke": William Cobb Remembers the 1927 Mississippi Flood
In spring 1927 it started raining in the Upper Midwest and, according to one observer, "it just never did stop." Torrential rains quickly filled the Mississippi's dozens of tributaries. On April 21, the supposedly impregnable levee system, maintained since 1879 by the Mississippi River Commission, sprang two leaks, or "crevasses" as they are known. Within days the Mississippi River levee system sustained forty more major crevasses in Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana, unleashing a natural dis
