What resulted was a debate about the right to personal liberty and the right to own property, which for many included slaves. (1:50)

“Exercise is a complex behavior that is regulated by a complex system”. In this talk, Prof Noakes seeks to include the brain as a factor in exercise physiology. He starts with the classical teachings in exercise physiology and continues by looking at various models such as the A.V. Hill model and the peripheral model.
“The greatest hurdle is the mental barrier”. This trilogy of lectures was originally presented to the University of Cape Town’s Rugby Team in 2008. The lectures centre around Prof Noakes’ teachings of self belief and team unity as role players in athletic performance.
This is Dr. Seuss' view of prejudice: Some Sneetches have a star on their bellies, and some of them don't. The 12 minute video is an excellent story on several levels depending on the age of the students.

It tells how it became a wealthy empire because they were in the center of the caravan routes and taxed other Muslims, during the gold-salt trade.
