Each time the United States expanded its territory, a wave of settlers and the development of new routes for trade and migration soon followed. This three minute video goes over some of the trails, personalities, and geography of this expansion. A good introduction, but students need to have map to follow the action.

Excerpts of John F. Kennedy's speech at the Boston Garden on November 7, 1960, the eve of the 1960 presidential election.
Global Resources and the Built Environment
With staggering statistics, John Fernandez persuades his audience that rapidly expanding urban centers are consuming too much of the world’s resources, setting the stage for global crisis. Yet Fernandez counters his own bleak picture with some bright examples of design that could help humans live within thei

A surface is non-orientable if there is no consistent notion of right handed versus left handed on it. The simplest example is the Mobius band, a twisted strip with one side, and one edge. An important deformation gives what we call a crosscap. This is the sixth lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc Prof N J Wildberger of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW.
Modern science is increasingly faced with problems of ever greater complexity, straddling across the traditional disciplinary boundaries between physics, chemistry, material science and biology. Computational science is responding to this challenge with a steadfast development of innovative modeling techniques, designed in such a way as to offer an optimal handling of the information transfer procedures connecting the different scales/levels involved in the quantitative description of the aforem

Editor's note: Unfortunately the first few minutes of the introduction are missing from the podcast. Saad Hariri is President of the Council of Ministers of the Lebanese Republic, a position he has held since November 2009. He is the leader of the Future Movement, which currently holds the majority in Lebanon's parliament.

This course offers an introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, an interdisciplinary academic field that asks critical questions about the meaning of gender in society. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women's and Gender Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary. Gender scholarship critically analyzes themes of gendered performance and power in a range of social spheres, such as law, culture, work, medicine and the
A realistic portrayal of the Old Testament story of Joseph, favorite son of Jacob, and great-grandson of Abraham, who was left to die by his brothers, but who rose to become prime minister of Egypt. Joseph governed the country during a seven-year famine, during which his brothers visited Egypt seeking grain, only to encounter their brother, whom they had long presumed dead. Brings the Old Testament to life. Closed captioning included. (08:56)

In customary, loose-limbed form, Arnold Barnett reprises two of his favorite themes: improvements to the U.S. Electoral College, and aviation safety.
First up, Barnett’s suggested fix for national elections, which through the “fun-house mirror” of the Electoral College, permit winner-take-all results. His
While Arnold Barnett acknowledges addressing the same questions around flying year after year (“Does he ever change his schtick?”), he advertises some new twists this time ‘round. Barnett remains remarkably consistent, though, in his quite sunny assessment of the current state of aviation safety -- even after a recent
