Enterprise in the sports industry
This presentation discusses Drucker's thesis that failure is a "good thing" if the opportunities that arise from such failure allow the development of personal and enterprise skills
17.874 Quantitative Research Methods: Multivariate (MIT)
This course is the second semester in the statistics sequence for political science and public policy offered in the Political Science Department at MIT. The intellectual thrust of the course is a presentation of statistical models for estimating causal effects of variables. The model of an effect is a conditional mean (though we might imagine other effect). The notion of causality is the effect of one variable on another holding all else constant.
Introduction to Factoring Trinomials - Yay Math
Removing common factors and using FOIL to reverse engineer trinomials to find the factors. White board in a class setting, some interaction, engaging, several examples of increasing complexity. The discussion is clear and understandable.

History of the American Civil War, 1861 - 1865 Map
This is a five-minute history of the American Civil War 1861 - 1865 with maps. There are no moving images--it's more of a slideshow.
The Social Robot
This 12 minute video is about robots, and robots created with human personality, to make interactions with them easier. They adopt cute faces or realistic faces with human emotions and the video looks at how they might be used in the future. A good starting point for a debate on what the use of robots might be in the future.
Prof Philip Steadman (UCL) on film 'Tim's Vermeer'
In 2001 Professor Philip Steadman (UCL Bartlett School of Graduate Studies and the UCL Energy Institute) published a book called Vermeer's Camera, about the evidence for the great seventeenth-century Dutch painter using a camera obscura to make his pictures. Fast forward 13 years and the original ideas in the book have provided the foundation for the BAFTA-nominated documentary Tim's Vermeer.

Hundred Years War - The Battle of Castillon - 17th of July 1453
The Battle of Castillon (17th of July 1453), the last big battle of The "Hundred Years War" marks the total victory for the French and the Kingdom of France. The four minute video does not have narration and is a series of graphics that explain the battles and the leaders involved. The video is not good enough to stand alone and needs an explanation before showing.
8.901 Astrophysics I (MIT)
This course provides a graduate-level introduction to stellar astrophysics. It covers a variety of topics, ranging from stellar structure and evolution to galactic dynamics and dark matter.
Taxing dirty energy
Only 10-15 per cent of the population is motivated strongly to go green if it's not in their own economic best interests. Dr Chris Hope explains that business is key to creating a green economy. Steps are required to ensure that businesses, looking for value-for-money in their energy supply and use, end up with a clean and green product. This can be done by making sure that anything that is dirty has a tax on it to recognise the pollution, the damage and impact caused by that dirty energy. If th
How internet and games affect the teenage mind: mini-lecture (UCL)
Lionel Bailly (UCL Psychoanalysis Unit) examines the effect new media (the internet, social networking and video games) has on the adolescent mind. According to Bailly, the virtual personas many teens create for themselves act as a warped mirror of their actual selves.

2.171 Analysis and Design of Digital Control Systems (MIT)
This course is a comprehensive introduction to control system synthesis in which the digital computer plays a major role, reinforced with hands-on laboratory experience. The course covers elements of real-time computer architecture; input-output interfaces and data converters; analysis and synthesis of sampled-data control systems using classical and modern (state-space) methods; analysis of trade-offs in control algorithms for computation speed and quantization effects. Laboratory projects emph
6.777J Design and Fabrication of Microelectromechanical Devices (MIT)
6.777J / 2.372J is an introduction to microsystem design. Topics covered include: material properties, microfabrication technologies, structural behavior, sensing methods, fluid flow, microscale transport, noise, and amplifiers feedback systems. Student teams design microsystems (sensors, actuators, and sensing/control systems) of a variety of types, (e.g., optical MEMS, bioMEMS, inertial sensors) to meet a set of performance specifications (e.g., sensitivity, signal-to-noise) using a realistic
A Cultural Overview of Greece
This is a slidecast of the culture of Greece. 'Greece is located in Southern Europe and shares borders with Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Turkey as well as the Aegean, Mediterranean, and Ionion Seas. Much of the topography is mountainous with ranges that extend into the seas as peninsulas or chains of islands .'

How To Have Law Without Legislation 22.01 Introduction to Ionizing Radiation (MIT) An integrated system to aid the planning of concrete structures: introducing the system Le Corbusier: Modernist Originality or Copying?
Rothbard explores Bruno Leoni’s call for a return to the ancient traditions and principles of "judge-made law" as a method of limiting the state and insuring liberty. This audio Mises Daily is narrated by Allan Davis.
This course provides an introduction to the basic properties of ionizing radiations and their uses in medicine, industry, science, and environmental studies. We will discuss natural and man-made radiation sources, energy deposition and dose calculations, and various physical, chemical, and biological processes and effects of radiation, with examples of their uses, and principles of radiation protection.
This paper reports on the development at Loughborough University of a CAD-based integrated model to aid the planning of in-situ concrete structures. The system development started after a review of the planning models currently available and after a detailed questionnaire survey undertaken amongst the top UK and US contractors on the current status of planning techniques and information technology. The main aim of this system i
While describing the genius of his originality and his ‘intuitive flashes of insight’, Le Corbusier systematically obliterated unwanted references from the works of his biographers and set up a carefully vetted archive called the Le Corbusier Foundation. This lecture considers the discovery of a recently discovered handwritten entry in a ‘lost’ (ie thrown away) Le Corbusier notebook, which indicates that he found (more than) inspiration in the work of a relatively forgotten modernist ar
