Senator Russ Feingold
As one of the most progressive voices in the Senate who also campaigned for President-elect Obama, what does Russ Feingold (D-WI) expect of the next four years? Bill Moyers sits down with the Wisconsin Senator to find out his perspectives on progressivism and its role in the new administration, and to ask him what changes he'd like to see in the Obama Presidency. And, take part in our Web-only project about the future of the American Dream. Plus, Bill Moyers talks with Mark Johnson, the producer
Engineering Large Software Systems
This is an introduction to the theory and practice of large-scale software system design, development, and deployment. Project management; advanced UML; reverse engineering; requirements inspection; verification and validation; software architecture; performance modeling and analysis.
Empirical Research Methods in Software Engineering
This course will explore the role of empiricism in software engineering research, and will prepare students for advanced research in SE by examining how to plan, conduct and report on empirical investigations. The course will cover all of the principal methods applicable to SE: controlled experiment, case studies, surveys, archival analysis, action research and ethnographies, and will relate these methods to relevant metatheories in the philosophy and sociology of science. The course will critic
Bill Moyers speaks with historian Simon Schama, who spent months traveling across America in the run-up to an historic election to discover what events in our nation's past can tell us about how we live today and what's in store for the future. Then, find out more about the Born Again American film and project - and get back to basics by reviewing America's founding documents. And, Bill Moyers responds to viewer feedback about Gaza.Author(s):
The State of the Union and Campaign Finance
Are America's elections now up for sale? The JOURNAl explores what the Supreme Court's decision means for campaign finance reform and the future of our democracy with progressive legal experts Monica Youn and Zephyr Teachout. Monica Youn directs the campaign finance reform/money in politics project at NYU's Brennan Center for law and Justice and Zephyr Teachout teaches law and politics at Fordham University's School of law. Then, America's workers need jobs, and AFl-CIO president Richard Trumka
Reading Burma On September 23, at Cooper Union’s Great Hall, PEN American Center, the Open Society Institute’s Burma Project, and the Review cosponsored an evening of readings and conversations, hosted by Salman Rushdie. The event, benefiting the International Burmese Monks Organization, commemorated the 2007 protests against Burma’s junta, and called attention to the continuing efforts to assist survivors of Cyclone Nargis.

Featured in Black Box in 2008, Brighton-based duo Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt, a.k.a. Semiconductor, have returned to Washington. A Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship at the National Museum of Natural History allowed them to research volcanic activity. They discuss their current project, an installation based on their study of live volcanoes in the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador.
This is a slide show on the geography of Australia, New Zealand and Oceania. It was made as a high school class project. It shows picture and text slides slides of geographical features, climate, environment, map and facts with a musical background.
This project has students model the geologic timescale using distance as a metaphor for time. Each student writes a summary of a major event or fossil organism. The students then station themselves and their summaries along a path within a gymnasium. Each student's position along the path determines ...
In this activity, students use an interactive online mass balance model to help understand the observed levels of chlorofluorocarbon CFC-12 over the recent past. They then explore the influence of post Montreal Protocol emission scenarios on future CFC levels and discuss the relevance of this to stratospheric ...
This is the transcript of a Project Kaleidoscope interview with Gregor Novak. The topic is Just-in-Time Teaching (JiTT). Discussion topics include how JiTT was developed and how JiTT uses web-based exercises to foster better personal interaction between students and faculty.
The Tropical Atmosphere Ocean project (TAO) website displays real-time data from moored ocean buoys. Information collected includes subsurface, sea surface and air temperature, ocean salinity, wind speed and direction, and short and long wavelength solar radiation data. Such data aid in understanding ...
Continuation of Convex Optimization I. Subgradient, cutting-plane, and ellipsoid methods. Decentralized convex optimization via primal and dual decomposition. Alternating projections. Exploiting problem structure in implementation. Convex relaxations of hard problems, and global optimization via branch & bound. Robust optimization. Selected applications in areas such as control, circuit design, signal processing, and communications. Course requirements include a substantial project.
This is a searchable database of the cornerstone documents of our government. It has more than 100,000 digitized copies of the National Archives most popular and significant manuscripts, photographs, maps, drawings and other documents. The guide introduces educators and students to the National Archives' ARC. Searching in ARC to learn more about National Archives' historical documents could enrich a classroom activity, a homework assignment, or a research project.
Users can learn about the GEOTAIL spacecraft and its mission to study the Earth's magnetotail. Materials presented include an overview of the project, a diagram of the spacecraft, and a description of the instrument packages carried aboard the satellite.
" This project-based course explores new design strategies for social interaction in the computer mediated world. Through weekly readings and design Assignments and Labs we will examine topics such as: Data-based portraiture Depicting growth, change and the passage of time Visualizing conversations, crowds, and networks Interfaces for the connected city Mobile social technologies The course emphasizes developing visual and interactive literacy.

Video Project created for Mr Voutier's video class in Brandon Manitoba. The video shows different scenes where students are bullied at school and there are questions such as "Why do we accept this?" There are is no dialogue but images are quite telling.
Medical animator David Bolinsky presents 3 minutes of stunning animation that show the bustling life inside a cell. Bolinsky describes how he uses animation to help people see the beauty in the biological sciences. He worked on a project with Harvard to show molecular and cellular biology in a way that makes it easy for students to understand.
This video is an AP English project. It explains how to use commas, semicolons, and colons and provides examples of how to use each correctly. The examples are not read aloud by the narrators, so it might be helpful to pause the video to read through the examples. Then, the video asks some questions with multiple choice answers to test your knowledge of correctly using each type of punctuation.
