It Is a Bird...a Plane...a Recession, Or Is It?
It's been quite a week. Stock markets around the world showed sharp declines on Monday; on Tuesday, the Federal Reserve cut its benchmark interest rate by three-quarters of a percentage point. The rate cut helped stem the losses on some indexes, but by January 23, the volatility had returned. The obvious fear is one of recession -- a possibility that the White House and Congress are trying to avert by coming up with a stimulus package that will keep the economy off life support. How effective wi
A New Language for Mental Illness
Mental illness needs a “new narrative,” says
Jane Pauley. Just as cancer has moved from the shadows to pink ribbons and races for the cure, mental illness must shed its public aura of fear and shame. “Shrewd move; let’s do that,” says Pauley.
In a revealing and self-effacing talk, Pauley describes he

4 Germline gene therapy
Following on from the advances made in diagnosing disorders using genetic testing, this unit looks at the possibilities for genetic therapies. Two approaches to gene therapy are discussed: correcting genes involved in causing illness; and using genes to treat disorders. Before closing on a discussion of the issues around 'designer babies' somatic gene therapy and germline gene therapy are discussed.
ESD.864 Systems Modeling and Assessment for Policy (MIT)

Introduction to Pitch Systems in Tonal Music Part 8: Tuning with Pure Major and Minor Triads
This presentation uses 3:2 ratios to create a 12-tone set very much like the twelve tone chromatic system in common use today. Despite its out-of-tune triads, this scale seems very functional but suffers from a gap in its frequencies, another comma, meaning it is not circular. Since the tonal pitch system relies on circularity (the ability to modulate from any key center to another without adjusting the tuning system), it becomes clear that although fifths and triads sound best when tuned to sim
Sound Reasoning is a web-based, introductory music appreciation course. It offers a new approach to music appreciation for adults, focusing on style-independent concepts. While the course concentrates primarily on Western classical and modern music, the concepts that are introduced apply to music of any style or era. The goal of "Sound Reasoning" is to equip you with questions that you may ask of any piece of music, thereby creating a richer and more comprehensive understanding of music both fam
