7.349 Biological Computing: At the Crossroads of Engineering and Science (MIT)
Imagine you are a salesman needing to visit 100 cities connected by a set of roads. Can you do it while stopping in each city only once? Even a supercomputer working at 1 trillion operations per second would take longer than the age of the universe to find a solution when considering each possibility in turn. In 1994, Leonard Adleman published a paper in which he described a solution, using the tools of molecular biology, for a smaller 7-city example of this problem. His paper generated enormous

"Continued Employment after the War?": The Women's Bureau Studies Postwar Plans of Women Workers
During World War II, the defense industry expanded and American men mobilized for military service. Many women found jobs previously unavailable to them in aircraft plants, shipyards, manufacturing companies, and the chemical, rubber, and metals factories producing war materials. These jobs paid higher salaries than those traditionally categorized as "women's work," such as teaching, domestic service, clerical work, nursing, and library science. Married women were discouraged from working outsid
Help and a New Deal
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (photographed in 1935 with his wife, Eleanor) created the New Deal as a solution for bringing the United States out of the Great Depression. The New Deal created a new role for the federal government, one that involved infusing money into the economy largely through the creation of new jobs and social programs. One photograph shows Roosevelt signing the Social Security Act of 1935, which was designed to keep citizens from becoming destitute. The New Deal also
The end of the road?
Road traffic has grown more than 80% since 1980 - as a result roads have deteriorated more quickly than could have been envisaged. Britain's road network is one of the countries largest national assets. Professor Andy Collop from the School of Civil Engineering describes the research taking place in Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre and the improvements such knowledge can make to road materials, structures and sustainability.
Tässä sunnuntain selkouutiset, studiossa on Brita Jokinen. __________________________ Kansallista veteraanipäivää on juhlittu sunnuntaina.

Harry Truman-Inaugural Address
Harry Truman had been America's vice president for just a few months when FDR died, unexpectedly, on the 12th of April, 1945. A man Americans barely knew was now in charge of ending the war and leading the country. When Truman sought the presidency, in his own right, he was not at all sure he could win. When he did, he gave this inaugural address on the 20th of January, 1949. It was the biggest upset in history to this date.(17:54)
Venus: Death of a Planet
"From the fires of a sun's birth... twin planets emerged. Venus... and Earth. Two roads diverged in our young solar system. Nature draped one world in the greens and blues of life.
While enveloping the other in acid clouds... high heat... and volcanic flows. Why did Venus take such a disastrous turn?"
NOTE: There is very brief (a second), frontal female nudity of the antique sculpture of Venus. Narrated with English captions. Excellent computer animation.(22:09)

In 1945, Communist leader Ho Chi Minh proclaimed a Democratic Republic of Vietnam and named Hanoi its capital. During World War II, Ho secretly received American assistance against the Japanese, but the financial aid stopped when the war ended because Truman refused to continue offering support to a known Communist. In 1946, the French government recognized Ho's Viet Minh government as a "free state" within the northern portion of the French-controlled region. By the end of the year, however, Ho
