Frontiers in Biomedical Engineering
The course covers basic concepts of biomedical engineering and their connection with the spectrum of human activity. It serves as an introduction to the fundamental science and engineering on which biomedical engineering is based. Case studies of drugs and medical products illustrate the product development-product testing cycle, patent protection, and FDA approval. It is designed for science and non-science majors.
Dante in Translation
The course is an introduction to Dante and his cultural milieu through a critical reading of The Divine Comedy and selected minor works (Vita nuova, Convivio, De vulgari eloquentia, Epistle to Cangrande). An analysis of Dante's autobiography, the Vita nuova, establishes the poetic and political circumstances of the Comedy's composition. Readings of Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso seek to situate Dante's work within the intellectual and social context of the late Middle Ages, with special attent
Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
Formulas for functions of one variable
This is a chart of functions with one variable and the equations for their standard deviation. It is from the Engineering Statistics handbook whose goal is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible. A link to tools and aids for using the handbook is provided.
This course is an introduction to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire, with an emphasis on urban planning and individual monuments and their decoration, including mural painting. While architectural developments in Rome, Pompeii, and Central Italy are highlighted, the course also provides a survey of sites and structures in what are now North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, and North Africa. The lectures are
Custom sneakers for Goldy Gopher
University of Minnesota student Chris Hui started an unusual business when he was only a teenager - custom sneaker painting. Now a junior in the Carlson School of Management, his custom sneaker company C2 Customs has served a wide range of clients - even some famous musicians and athletes. From Lupe Fiasco to LeBron James and now Goldy Gopher, Chris creates a custom pair of shoes that speaks to the wearer and their look.
Apple Computers through the ages
A video of apple computer throughout time starting with the Apple Lisa and ending with the Macbook Air. It begins with the Apple Logo which was used from 1976 to 1998. You see a picture of Lisa which was introduced in 1983. Statistics are given about the computers and what they would cost in modern day prices. (2:35)

Ships bells are a communications device. They are rung to annouce the ship's arrival and departure. They are also used to communicate to other ships.
June 17, 2013 - Committed to changing the world but unclear where to start? Will the 21st century see a rise of the city-state, a reinvigorated nation state or the strengthening of international organizations? Our panel argues the local vs national vs global case for shifting power within or between countries. The fall, rise and re-imagination of societies. Spur is Canada's first national festival of politics, art and ideas. Spur is produced by Diaspora Dialogues and the Literary Review of Can

Producer (requires Internet Explorer) This is one of a series of learning objects concerning research methods. This object contains an introduction to the reasons why scientific models of making sense differ from rival approaches such as astrology, religion and common sense all of which offer ‘preconceived theories’ with which to understand our experience.

1989 - 1991 The U.S. proves the stronger, the Soviet Union implodes. Germany is reunified. Shorn of its empire and communist domination, Russia faces its future with its economy in chaos. The balance of terror that has kept the peace for more than 40 years vanishes. The Cold War has ended without the use of nuclear weapons.
This course presents an introduction to quantum mechanics. It begins with an examination of the historical development of quantum theory, properties of particles and waves, wave mechanics and applications to simple systems — the particle in a box, the harmonic oscillator, the rigid rotor and the hydrogen atom. The lectures continue with a discussion of atomic structure and the Periodic Table. The final lectures cover applications to chemical bonding including valence bond and molecular orb
The physical exhibition features more than 20 health posters from the 1920s to the 1990s. Covering infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, AIDS, gonorrhoea, and syphilis, the posters come from North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. This accompanying web site includes a very informative and well produced fully illustrated catalogue as a downloadable PDF. It has been organised by the National Academy of Sciences.
Ce cours est une introduction à la culture et la société françaises depuis la Révolution, mais surtout à partir du Second Empire. Nous tacherons de cerner ce qui définit la singularité francaise dans une perspective historique. Nous commencerons avec la notion "d'exception francaise" et de ce qui la constitue depuis la Révolution (La République, L'Universalisme, La Laicité, etc.) Nous explorerons l'impact de l
