SP.721 D-Lab: Development, Dialogue and Delivery (MIT)
D-Lab is a year-long series of courses and field trips. The fall class provides a basic background in international development and appropriate technology through guest speakers, case studies and hands-on exercises. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in an IAP field trip to Haiti, India, Brazil, Honduras, Zambia, Samoa, or Lesotho and continue their work in a spring term design class. As part of the fall class, students will partner with community organizations in these count
Battle of Jutland (May 31-June 1, 1916) - World War I
Slide-show video showing pictures of the ships that participated in the battle of Jutland during World War I. This battle was on the afternoon of May 31, 1916, when the British fleet encountered the German fleet before the Germans had expected. By the time the British turned and fled towards the main fleet, they had lost two battlecruisers and the numerical advantage. Slides with music and text (which moves faster than can be read)
Fracture surface in a liquid crystalline polymer, oriented by a magnetic field
Above their melting point, liquid crystalline polymers exhibit a mesophase within which, although able to flow and are not arranged in a crystal, they exhibit long range orientational order. This molecular alignment can be exploited to make high strength and stiffness fibres such as Kevlar, or even mouldable thermotropics such as Vectra. Molecular alignment can also be controlled by an external applied field; a property exploited in liquid crystal displays. This polymer has been subjected to a m
Philip Cowley, Reader in the University’s School of Politics and International Relations, was recently nominated for the Times Higher young researcher of the year award. In this podcast, Philip discusses his research into back bench rebellions within the British parliament. Philip describes his research as practical politics, linking academic research to the real world of political debate. Since the British Labour party’s re-election with a reduced majority of 66 MPs in May 2005, some back b
Behaviour, Decisions and Markets: module syllabus
Module outline for a course on Behaviour, Decisions and Markets, as taught by Miguel A. Fonseca and Dieter Balkenborg, University of Exeter. The aim of this module is to enable students to examine economic theory from a behavioural perspective, and highlight instances where standard economics predicts actual choices correctly and instances where it does not. Students will be introduced to recent behavioural theories that have emerged to explain the empirical observations, and will discuss the im
TALAT Lecture 1401: Aluminium Powder Metallurgy
This lecture outlines the differences between conventionally produced and powder metallurgy aluminium with respect to potential uses; it aims at learning about the various processes to produce and to consolidate alloy powders; it illustrates the extension of the useful property range beyond that of limits of conventionally processed aluminium alloys; it explains the advantages and disadvantages of aluminium produced by powder metallurgy; it shows the potential of aluminium produced by the route
TALAT Lecture 2101.02: The product development process
This lecture provides a brief introduction to the product development process and systematic design. It aims at generating interest in and a common understanding of the product development process; telling about the basic principles and terminology used in connection with systematic design in order to facilitate the use of the four product design examples presented in this course (see TALAT lectures 2102.01 - .04). The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general backgroun
TALAT Lecture 4201: Arc welding processes: TIG, Plasma arc, MIG
This lecture describes the arc welding processes TIG, Plasma, MIG and their modifications in connection with aluminium; it explains the choice of welding parameters; it demonstrates influence of the process on macrostructure. General engineering background and basic knowledge in electrical engineering is assumed.
Conveyancing Project (Sale Files)
This simulation takes students through a conveyancing transaction both for the sale and purchase of a domestic property in Scotland. The simulation covers all the basic procedural steps required in order to successfully complete the transaction on behalf of a married couple. The students work in their virtual firms to complete the transaction over a 10 week period. However, the simulation could be carried out on an individual basis. Both sides of the transaction are completed simultaneously. Th
17.20 Introduction to the American Political Process (MIT)
This course provides students with an introduction to the basic institutions of American government, especially as established in the constitution, and with an introduction to currents of thought among social scientists about the workings of U.S. politics. This is a communication intensive course. As such you are required to write at least 20 pages - that's the C.I. requirement - and participate in class discussions.

Hope Kelly reports on an alarming increase in the infant mortality rate in Boston. Kelly reviews the statistics. She notes that the infant mortality rate among African Americans is 2.5 times the infant mortality rate among whites. Kelly adds that the increase in the infant mortality rate was most pronounced in the Roxbury neighborhood. Kelly interviews Dr. Bailus Walker (Commissioner of Public Health). Walker says that the increase in the infant mortality rate is the result of a cutback in socia
Focusing on the crisis in Darfur, the speakers will offer a comprehensive view of how and why a conflict evolves into a full-fledged genocide. The Darfur genocide has involved not just the outright immediate killing of people, but also the creation of conditions that have made life impossible by chasing people out into the desert and destroying their homes, villages, food supplies and livelihoods. Speakers will present eyewitness accounts of events on the ground in Darfur as well as academic res
What the Energy Biosciences Institute means for UC Berkeley On February 1, global energy firm BP announced that it had selected UC Berkeley, in partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, to lead an unprecedented $500 million research effort to develop new sources of energy and reduce the impact of energy consumption on the environment. In this edition of Bear in Mind, UC Berkeley's ongoing series of webcasts about campus is
This course is an introduction to European history from around 1500 to the present. The central questions that it addresses are how and why Europe--a small, relatively poor, and politically fragmented place--became the motor of globalization and a world civilization in its own right. Put differently how did "western" become an adjective that, for better and often for worse, stands in place of "modern." Our approach will be broadly cultural, and we will consider politics, economics, society, reli
This Guide is designed for soil survey, vegetation, and ecological site or unit inventory work in order to help soil scientists and other inventory specialists collect interpretable data about soil change within the human time scale. This Guide describes a sampling system to measure dynamic soil properties for all major land uses (except urban lands where the land and soil have been significantly reshaped). The Guide includes instructions for project planning, field execution, and data analysis
