Density and Pressure
What makes a block of wood rise to the surface of a bucket of water? Why do your ears “pop” if you swim deep underwater? In this session, we will examine density, an essential property of matter. We will also look at how particles of matter are in constant motion, leading to a deeper understanding of fluid pressure. Finally, we will investigate the concepts of pressure an

This is Part 5 of a documentary about the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. by Michel Parbot. Suitable for middle school students and older. Former FBI agent and Ray himself are interviewed and perpetuate a conspiracy theory. (Amateur-ish video that still gets across much information to the viewer.)
A great variety of processes affect the surface of the Earth. Topics to be covered are production and movement of surficial materials; soils and soil erosion; precipitation; streams and lakes; groundwater flow; glaciers and their deposits. The course combines aspects of geology, climatology, hydrology, and soil science to present a coherent introduction to the surface of the Earth, with emphasis on both fundamental concepts and practical applications, as a basis for understanding and intelligent
This text is meant only to be a stimulus for the discussion to be held, in a specific panel, at Generative Art 2001. In the text, ?provocative enough? to spur animated discussion, some very basics of darwinism and genetics are given with the only purpose of declaring a common ?stage for the play? where everybody feels at ease. Common stage and common vocabulary ifnot even common language. The main thesis is very strong, therefore comments and critics are warmly encouraged. They are the selective
This reading material forms part of the "Arrays and For Loops" topic in the Introduction to OO Programming in Java module.
This video is accompanied by text. "President Abraham Lincoln was a minority president, having been elected in 1860 with only 40 percent of the popular vote. He inherited a country divided by secession and at the brink of war, and an opposing foe in Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Lincoln had many challenges to overcome to make his mark in history.
Lincoln had never accepted the legality of secession, and during his inauguration he vowed to preserve the Union and uphold the Constitu
This course offers an introduction to probability, statistical mechanics, and thermodynamics. Numerous examples are used to illustrate a wide variety of physical phenomena such as magnetism, polyatomic gases, thermal radiation, electrons in solids, and noise in electronic devices.
During the past twenty years, the world's most renowned critical theorist—the scholar who defined the field of postcolonial studies—has experienced a radical reorientation in her thinking. Finding the neat polarities of tradition and modernity, colonial and postcolonial, no longer sufficient for interpreting the globalized present, she turns elsewhere to make her central argument: that aesthetic education is the last available instrument for implementing global justice and democracy. In ess
This course (taught mainly in English) explores practical ways to discover and understand culture in Japan, based on the gathering and analysis of qualitative data.
