Herds, Packs, and Gaggles
Join Doc Sanders in Ohio as he examines the special relationships people have with animals on the farm. Whether it's milk, meat, or a Christmas sweater, these animals provide us with the essentials. The video shows sheep shearing and the spinning of wool, unusual farm animals like lama and alpaca, the raising of livestock like baby pigs, and the encouragement of programs like 4-H.

7.340 Ubiquitination: The Proteasome and Human Disease (MIT)
This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. This seminar provides a deeper understanding of the post-translational mechanisms evolved by eukaryotic cells to target proteins for degradation. Students learn how proteins are recognized and degraded by specif
Inequality in America.
While many Americans are working harder for less money and paying more for everyday items like gas and food, the rich are getting richer. Bill Moyers Journal analyzes the growing inequality gap on the ground in los Angeles where recently union workers marched to bring attention to how they are getting squeezed out of the shrinking middle class. Bill Moyers also interviews Steve Fraser, historian and author of Wall Street: America's Dream Palace, about the modern parallels and differences to th
An optimization method of the facility location by genetic algorithm
In planning of community-facilities, it is important to decide the facility location to provide the effective service for residents. The behavior of residents using the facility and the evaluation methods of the location have been studied. But, finding the optimum location is very hard in actual planning because the volume of calculation depends on the number of feasible locating points of facilities. To conquer the difficulty of searching the optimum location, we propose an optimization method
Knowledge-based Stair Design
The application of computer--based technique to support architectural design has often concentrated on matters of representation. Typically, this means computer-aided drafting, and less frequently, computer-aided modeling and visualization. The promise of new computer-based tools to support the process of design has thus far failed to produce any significant tool that has had a widespread impact on the architectural profession. Most developments remain in university based research labs where the
Learning and Contamination in Virtual Worlds
The most recent advances of artificial life scientific research are opening up a new frontier: the creation of simulated life environments populated by autonomous agents. In these environments artificial beings can interact, reproduce and evolve [4, 6, 15], and can be seen as laboratories whereto explore the emergence of social behaviors like competition, cooperation, relationships and communication [5, 7] . It is still not possible to approach a reasonable simulation of the incredible complexit

Digital ?serial vision? - new approach in urban composition teaching
The paper discusses the following problem: How can digital technology are integrated with urban composition teaching to provide a better understanding of the aesthetical and emotional aspects of the city? It argues for the current need for an integration of computer modelling and the approaches developed form the work of K. Lynch, G. Cullen, R. Krier, F. Ching. The paper is based on the experience in design studio teaching and an experiment completed with students. The exercise shows the student

10.569 Synthesis of Polymers (MIT)
Studies synthesis of polymeric materials, emphasizing interrelationships of chemical pathways, process conditions, and microarchitecture of molecules produced. Chemical pathways include traditional approaches such as anionic polymerization, radical condensation, and ring-opening polymerizations. Other techniques are discussed, including stable free radical polymerizations and atom transfer free radical polymerizations (ARTP), catalytic approaches to well-defined architectures, and polymer functi

Learning anytime, anywhere
The ANU eText Books for Mobile Learning program has allowed students of Sanskrit, Thai, Vietnamese and Tetum at ANU to have a "Professor in their Pockets," wherever in the world they may be. Through the development of sophisticated ePubs, students have all the learning resources they need at their fingertips, accessible to them anytime, anywhere. The ANU eText Books for Mobile Learning program has had a profound impact on student learning and engagement within the small languages sphere at ANU,
International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used
Chaplin A Dogs Life (2:27)
A short fiction film I shot on super 8mm for a film class. The story is a tad brief in places, I had light meter problems at one point and some of the footage didn't turn out, so I had to rewrite some things. This is a modern day production in the slilent film genre.
