Professor Patrick Duffy Inaugural Lecture: (Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world?
(Sport) Coaching: Blinded or blended in a changing world? Professor Duffy's research work focuses on policy and sport coaching, as well as applied work in sport-business transfer, which is part of a long-term project with Morrisons PLC. Patrick will address the policy and research backgrounds to developments in professional practice in this area. The traditional view of sport coaching as an emerging profession will be challenged, suggesting that sport coaching should position itself as a blended
The Future of EU Enlargement [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dimitar Bechev, Lawrence Meredith, John Peet, Professor Robert Cooper | Enlargement is widely hailed as the EU’s most successful policy, largely responsible for the successful transition from dictatorship to democracy first in Southern Europe, then in Central and Eastern Europe after the end of the Cold War. Yet forty years after the first enlargement, which saw the UK join the European Community, confidence in the European project seems to be at an all-time low. From enlargement f

6.852J Distributed Algorithms (MIT)
Distributed algorithms are algorithms designed to run on multiple processors, without tight centralized control. In general, they are harder to design and harder to understand than single-processor sequential algorithms. Distributed algorithms are used in many practical systems, ranging from large computer networks to multiprocessor shared-memory systems. They also have a rich theory, which forms the subject matter for this course. The core of the material will consist of basic distributed algor
Scott Jordan: "Pocket Man"
Imagine Bill Gates and Giorgio Armani started a business, then hired PT Barnum to promote it, and Larry David to tell the story. This pretty much sums up my life since I started SCOTTeVEST, my clothing company built around tech-enabled pockets. I began my career as an unhappy lawyer and hated my job for years until I founded SCOTTeVEST in 2000 to pursue my passion for gadgets and reinvent myself. I’ve been featured in thousands of major press pieces, made millions of dollars, worked close
3 Studying mammals The term mammal encompasses a huge variety of animals, including humans. But what makes a mammal a mammal? This course explores some of the features, such as reproduction, lactation and thermoregulation methods, that mammals have in common. It is the first in a series of 10 ‘Studying mammals’ courses.

Miller received a bachelor's degree in kinesiology from the University of Michigan, a Master of Education from Cleveland State University and a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Miami. Miller is the seventh recipient of the Ward
Nanotechnology Part 6 - Grand Vision
Part 6 of a series of podcasts on Quantum Nanotechnology. In this episode, Simon Benjamin talks about how we might go about creating a technology out of quantum material.
Properties of Division (part 2)
In this video learn how to solve division problems using the
divisive identity property, zero property, and distributive property. Distributive properties states to divide the number outside the parentheses by each number in the parentheses, then add the dividends together. Examples are shown.
8.871 Selected Topics in Theoretical Particle Physics: Branes and Gauge Theory Dynamics (MIT)
This course is an introduction to branes in string theory and their world volume dynamics. Instead of looking at the theory from the point of view of the world-sheet observer, we will approach the problem from the point of view of an observer which lives on a brane. Instead of writing down conformal field theory on the world-sheet and studying the properties of these theories, we will look at various branes in string theory and ask how the physics on their world-volume looks like.
Clash of the Financial Titans
Two of the three winners of this year's Nobel Prize in economics espouse theories that may appear to be polar opposites, but Wharton's Amir Yaron suggests they are, in fact, complementary.
