This video clip highlights the Mayan civilizations achievements. The Mayans were the first to figure out the concept of zero, created the first accurate calendar containing 365 days per year, and started a writing system. The Mayans had hundreds of cities and their capital of Tikal contained schools, libraries, sports arenas, and hospitals. In 1,000 A.D. Mayan cities were abandoned. The growth of the great Mayan civilization is as much a mystery as its disappearance. This clip contains text to a

C++ AMP: The Test Team - Hallway Office Tour C++ AMP (Accelerated Massive Parallelism) is a small set of open specification language extensions (two of them) and a single library (amp.h) that makes general purpose GPU programming (aka GPGPU) a first class, seamless experience in modern C++.
You've been able to experiment with C++ AMP since the VS11 Developer Preview

Global Calls for Economic Justice: the potential of Islamic finance [Audio]
Speaker(s): Mukhtar Hussain, Professor Volker Nienhaus | It is felt that conventional financial systems have failed and should be replaced, or supplemented, by more ethical banking and socially responsible finance. Can Islamic Finance, as a system with a strong religious background and moral framework, satisfy this hope? Mukhtar Hussain is chief executive officer at HSBC Malaysia. Volker Nienhaus is visiting professor, University of Reading.
30. Climate Sensitivity and Human Population
The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140) Climate sensitivity is defined as either the temperature change resulting from a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration or the temperature change resulting from a 1W/m2 increase in radiative forcing. There are several different climate sensitivities that take into account different feedbacks in the climate system. The simplest climate sensitivity is black body sensitivity, which does not account for any feedbacks but gi

Obama, the Tea Party, and the future of American Politics [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Theda Skocpol | What happened to Obama's "new New Deal"? Why did his achievements enrage opponents more than they satisfied supporters?

8.851 Strong Interactions: Effective Field Theories of QCD (MIT)
This is a course in the construction and application of effective field theories, which are the modern tool of choice in making predictions based on the Standard Model. Concepts such as matching, renormalization, the operator product expansion, power counting, and running with the renormalization group will be discussed. Topics will be taken from factorization in hard processes relevant for the LHC, heavy quark decays and CP violation, chiral perturbation theory, non-relativistic bound states in
Common Shore Crab Egg Mass and Larvae Being Released
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a Common Shore Crab egg mass and lots of tiny larvae being released. As its name suggests, the common shore crab is one of the most common crabs on the British shore. This species is usually dark green in color, although young individuals may have whitish blotches. The carapace of the common shore crab is wider than it is long, and the first pair of walking limbs ('pereopods') have pincers. This is a great resource to
Space Station Live: Reentry Breakup Recorder
Understanding how vehicles behave during atmospheric reentry gives future spacecraft developers unique information that can enhance design efficiencies and safety. One experiment has had three successful flights to gather this never-before-collected information. Public Affairs Officer Lori Meggs at the Payload Operations Integration Center at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, talks with Andrew Feistel of the Aerospace Corporation to learn more about the Reentry Breakup Rec
Learn The Basics to Subtracting Fractions
John Zimmerman from www.tabletclass.com explains how to subtract fractions. The instructor uses computer software to illustrate his points and feels that math students in middle school and basic math should find the lesson helpful. The two examples used in this video are 3/5-1/5 and 4 1/2- 2 2/3. (06:55)
Green shoots of recovery, anyone?
If men define situations as real, they are real in their consequences: the maxim of the 'self fulfilling prophecy'. Forecasts that are sufficiently believed, cause people to act in ways that make the prediction come true. Forecasts about the economy can have this self-fulfilling character. Prognostications of popular media commentators on the economy form a large part of the basis of everyone's beliefs about future economic circumstances; if 2009 turns out to be a dreadful year for the economy,
A new weapon in cancer research
http://concordia.ca/headlines Concordia biology professor Vladimir Titorenko was conducting research on chemicals with the potential to interrupt aging, when he happened upon one that selectively kills off cancer cells. Titorenko and endocrinologist Thomas Sanderson discuss their research into the cancer-fighting qualities of licotholic acid.
