Liberty Is Not Complicated
11.027 City to City: Comparing, Researching and Writing about Cities: New Orleans (MIT)
City to City, as a class, will jump into the complexity of planning in New Orleans, a post-disaster city. City-to-City will ask how a post-disaster city grapple with its ideas of identity, what it is, who it represents, and how it projects its sense of self to residences, businesses, tourists, and to the outside world. In considering its people, how do city planners think about who lives where and why? At the same time, how can city planners celebrate a city's history and its culture and how can

The Difference Between Maine and Texas
This slide show contrasts the size, trade, land, and tourism opportunities of Maine and Texas. Beautiful photos of each state are shown. ( Students could be asked to watch this video and then reasearch and compare/contrast two states.) ( 1:27)
Wollaton Library Collection Ep.3 Digitisation
In this, the third video in the Wollaton series, Mark Bentley (Scanning Technician, Manuscripts and Special Collections) explains the process of digitising manuscripts and books, both to protect them and to make their contents as widely accessible as possible.
War, Law and the Cold War: Making the European Convention on Human Rights
Professor Anne Deighton (Oxford) gives the fourth talk in The Evolution of International Norms and Norm Entrepreneurship: The Council of Europe in Comparative Perspective. This one-day workshop will bring together officials and researchers working on the Council of Europe and international norms more generally. Our emphasis on the Council of Europe gives a concrete empirical starting point for consideration of international norms, norm 'entrepreneurship', and human rights. How do norms come onto

Microscopic Images from Inside the Human Body
This student-made project includes various images from the human body. The video could be used with a lesson on microscopic organisms, cells, or with a lesson about the microscope itself. Some of the images include: red blood cells, human hair, purkinje neurons, hair cells in the ear, blood vessels, taste buds, tooth plaque, blood clot, alveoli in the lung, villi in small intestine, egg, sperm, and embryo. The slide show is set to upbeat music. (3:58)
Du pétrole et du gaz aux plastiques (audio)
Gaz naturel et pétrole et tous les hydrocarbures en général - sont des matières premières familières, que nous associons d'emblée à la production d'énergie : centrales électriques, carburants automobiles, ainsi que chauffage domestique au gaz et au fioul. Mais en parallèle de cet emploi en tant que combustibles, ces ressources naturelles sont les matières premières de base de la pétrochimie, qui fournit d'innombrables matériaux synthétiques aujourd'hui indispensables à notre
La construction d'une usine : du virtuel au réel (audio)
Les projets d'usines pétrochimiques et de plateformes actuellement en cours de développement dans le monde sollicitent de façon de plus en plus exigeante les capacités des sociétés d'ingénierie. Comment réaliser, dans des délais raccourcis, (afin d'assurer rapidement la mise en production !) des mastodontes, qui seront nos usines de demain ? Nous aborderons les différents défis de l'ingénierie et les moyens mis en oeuvre pour y répondre : notamment, les simulations et le virtuel

5.2 Alpha decay
You have probably met the law of radioactive decay, which says that, given a sample of N0 similar nuclei at time t = 0, the number remaining at time t is N(t) = N0e−λt, where λ, the decay constant for a particular kind of nucleus, determines the rate at which the nuclei decay. The half-life is the time needed for half of any sufficiently large sample to decay. It is related to the de
15.514 Financial and Managerial Accounting (MIT)
15.514 is an intensive introduction to the preparation and interpretation of financial information for investors (external users) and managers (internal users) and to the use of financial instruments to support system and project creation. The course adopts a decision-maker perspective on accounting and finance with the goal of helping students develop a framework for understanding financial, managerial, and tax reports. 15.514 is restricted to System Design and Management student
