Why Study Icons with Dr Mary Cunningham
Icons -- religious images from the eastern Churches -- are far more than religious images as seen in western churches: they enable an encounter between the observer and the mystery. In this video, Mary Cunningham, an expert on Orthodoxy, introduces them.
Race activists want more black models

14.381 Statistical Method in Economics (MIT)
This course is divided into two sections and is co-taught by two instructors. This version is Part II. Part I, from the fall of 2013, provides an introduction to statistical theory.The second part of the course prepares students for the remainder of the econometrics sequence. The emphasis of the course is to understand the basic principles of statistical theory. A brief review of probability will be given; however, this material is assumed knowledge. The course also covers basic regre
Following Children's Ideas in Mathematics
An unprecedented long-term study conducted by Rutgers University
followed the development of mathematical thinking in a randomly
selected group of students for 12 years - from 1st grade through high
school - with surprising results. In an overview of the study, we look
at some of the conditions that made their math achievement possible.

9.63 Laboratory in Cognitive Science (MIT)
Teaches principles of experimental methods in human perception and cognition, including design and statistical analysis. Combines lectures and hands-on experimental exercises; requires an independent experimental project. Some experience in programming desirable. To foster improved writing and presentation skills in conducting and critiquing research in cognitive science, students are required to provide reports and give oral presentations of three team experiments; a fourth individually conduct
3.00 Thermodynamics of Materials (MIT)
Treatment of the laws of thermodynamics and their applications to equilibrium and the properties of materials. Provides a foundation to treat general phenomena in materials science and engineering, including chemical reactions, magnetism, polarizability, and elasticity. Develops relations pertaining to multiphase equilibria as determined by a treatment of solution thermodynamics. Develops graphical constructions that are essential for the interpretation of phase diagrams. Treatment includes elec
Edge Show 92 - Ned Pyle and changes to DFS in Windows Server 2012 R2 | Edge In this episode of the Edge Show, Rick sits down with Ned Pyle - Senior PM on the File Server team to talk about changes to DFS in Windows Server 2012 R2 and how we've changed the staging and cloning capabilities. You might remember Ned from the "Ask DS" blog where he was a main contributor for the Directory Services team while working as a top level support engineer. Simon and Rick cover off some interesting bits from the interwebs, including:

The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Technical Paper 8b - Measuring the I
This Technical Paper describes the results of analyses of young children's social behavioural development during their time in pre-school. Equivalent analyses of the cognitive progress of children in the study have been conducted and the results are reported separately in EPPE Technical Paper 8a. Four aspects of social behavioural development have been studied, namely 'Independence & Concentration', 'Co-operation & Conformity', 'Peer Sociability' and 'Anti-social / Worried'. . A range of statist
Cold War: Red China - part 1/5
1949 - 1972 Chinese communists win the longest civil war in 20th century history. Mao's land reforms are popular but in 1958, he embarks on a series of catastrophic changes. China maintains an incrasingly uneasy relationship with the Soviet Union. In 1960, the Sino-Soviet split paves the way for President Nixon's historic visit to Beijing.
Virtual Maths, Cylinder Voids - Calculating volume
Interactive simulation with exercises and video demonstrating the use of auger piling and showing how to calculate the volume of cocrete needed to fill the cylindrical voids.
The PDZ Domain as a Complex Adaptive System
Specific protein associations define the wiring of protein interaction networks and thus control the organization and functioning of the cell as a whole. Peptide recognition by PDZ and other protein interaction domains represents one of the best-studied classes of specific protein associations. However, a mechanistic understanding of the relationship between selectivity and promiscuity commonly observed in the interactions mediated by peptide recognition modules as well as its functional meaning
2.4 Defining terms
Care is needed at all stages of life. This unit makes care in the family its focus because the overwhelming majority of care, including health care, is supplied in families, much of it in private, much of it unnoticed and unremarked upon. The meaning of the term (informal carer) and the word (care) itself are explored.
