The Power of Touch
Why is touch so important to our physical and emotional well-being? And what happens when it is withheld? This video segment explores the role of touch in the development of young animals, including humans, and looks at the therapies parents are using to enrich the lives and minds of their infants and toddlers. Footage from NOVA: "Mystery of the Senses: Touch." Closed captioning included. Run time 02:57.
The Angle Game - Khan Academy This video uses an electronic black board with different-colored pens. Using what we know about angles students need to figure out the measurement of the other angles in the figure that is drawn. The video should be paused then restarted for solution. Narrator mentions that this is good practice for SAT’s. This could also be a challenge for high level middle school students. Good quality video. Good for middle elementary a

Applying object-oriented analysis to the integration of design and construction
This paper implements an Object Oriented Analysis technique to model information related to design and construction. In a previous study, an approach to integrate design and construction processes based upon information analysis and modelling has been proposed. By breaking down the project's vast information into groups of related information, construction related problems have been identified and then traced back too their relevant design processes. This paper models this process using a relati

TALAT Lecture 2101.02: The product development process
This lecture provides a brief introduction to the product development process and systematic design. It aims at generating interest in and a common understanding of the product development process; telling about the basic principles and terminology used in connection with systematic design in order to facilitate the use of the four product design examples presented in this course (see TALAT lectures 2102.01 - .04). The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general backgrou
The Embryo Takes Shape
Genes direct the development of a growing embryo. But not all genes in a cell are active at any given time. Sometimes a cell's location in the developing embryo determines which genes get turned on and which genes stay inactive. This video segment from NOVA: "Life's Greatest Miracle" explores the developmental process of an embryo beginning just two weeks after fertilization. Closed captioning included. Run time 07:47.
The Future of London within the UK [Audio]
Speaker(s): Boris Johnson | The State Of The Union series has seen people from Alex Salmond to Martin McGuiness and Michael Heseltine discuss the future of the United Kingdom and one part within the greater whole.

He went to primary school in Camden and was subsequently educated at the European School in B
Capturing design context in distributed communication of software engineers
Software engineering is a knowledge-intensive activity. It requires developers be aware of changing requirements, involvement of others, and the overall status of the project. Code, as the embodiment of developersâ intent, does not represent all knowledge required to work on the project successfully. Even in projects with the best software process practices, where requirement and design documents, bug databases, and source control software are kept up-to-date, most knowledge is still containe

Gravity Overview - Free Science Video by Brightstorm
All objects with mass attract and are attracted by all other objects with mass because of a force called gravity. The strength of gravity is proportional to the mass of the object. We are pulled to the Earth by it's gravitational forces but we also pull the earth towards us. Because we are much less massive than than the Earth, our gravitational pull is not strong enough to have any affect on it. Gravity pulls us towards Earth such that we accelerate at 9.8 m/s^2. &n
