DW GRIFFITH AS IT IS IN LIFE 1910 SILENT MARY PICKFORD 1911
Despite the overwhelming importance of D.W. Griffith to the development of cinema art; his name, his work and the work of those who helped him create his moving pictures have become a generally unknown commodity amongst the American public. (12:18)
In this short cartoon clip from "WordWorld", the WordFriends use the letters R, U, and G, to build the word "rug." After the word is built, it transforms into a rug made of the letters used. (:52)
Plants that Make Spores
There are ten basic divisions in the Plantae kingdom, and only 5 that are spore bearing. Spores are special cells used in asexual reproduction. Learn about the plants that make cells in this short clip. Examples and photos are provide for the mosses, liverworts, horsetails and ferns. (2:34)

Information Pioneers: Sir Tim Berners-Lee
This six minute video explains how the world wide web came to be and the rules that were used to start it including everything being free to join. The connections are stressed as well as how the developer is still working on creating a more sophisticated web. A good review of why the web was created as well as how it came into being.
21L.003-2 Reading Fiction (MIT)
Reading Fiction is designed to sharpen your skills as a critical reader. As we explore both short stories and novels focusing on the theme of "the city in literature," we will learn about the various elements that shape the way we read texts - structure, narrative voice, character development, novelistic experimentation, historical and political contexts and reader response.
Television Affects Your Brain Chemistry
This video explains how TV affects brain activity in various stages.
Quartz crystal microbalance/heat conduction calorimetry (QCM/HCC), a new technology capable of isoth
A new technology called the quartz crystal microbalance/heat conduction calorimeter (QCM/HCC) capable of simultaneous, high sensitivity mass change and heat flow measurements under isothermal conditions, was developed. The QCM/HCC consists of two highly sensitive sensors. A quartz crystal microbalance measures mass changes on its surface (to Â±0.25ng/cm2), while a thermopile positioned between the WCM and a heat sink measures heat flows (to Â±50nW) to and from the surface of the QCM. In the

Droplet lens technology opens microscopy to the masses
An Australian National University scientist has discovered a simple, cheap way of turning a smart phone into a high-resolution microscope, opening the door to a revolution in science and medicine in developing countries. The transformation is made by attaching a tiny lens made of a clear pliable polymer onto the camera lens of a phone, explains inventor Dr Steve Lee, from the Department of Biomedical Engineering. "We make it by putting a droplet of PDMS onto a microscope cover slip and then inv
3.044 Materials Processing (MIT)
The goal of 3.044 is to teach cost-effective and sustainable production of solid material with a desired geometry, structure or distribution of structures, and production volume. Toward this end, it is organized around different types of phase transformations which determine the structure in various processes for making materials, in roughly increasing order of entropy change during those transformations: solid heat treatment, liquid-solid processing, fluid behavior, deformation processing, and
The Battle for Control of Online Communications
The Internet offers users many opportunities for communicating and exchanging ideas, but abuse, censorship, and the manipulation of Internet traffic have put free and open communication at risk. In this talk, Georgia Tech Associate Professsor, Nick Feamster, will present approaches developed to preserve free and open communication on the Internet in the face of numerous threats. First discussed is the threat of message abuse (e.g., spam) and methods developed for mitigating it. Next, is the deve

Observe Water in Winter and Summer
On Earth, water can regularly be found in three different phases — liquid, solid, and gas — each of which has noticeably different properties. For example, a boat can glide through liquid water in summer, but it cannot do so when the water turns to solid ice in winter. Atmospheric conditions, specifically seasonal temperatures, can influence the phase in which water exists at a given time. This short video segment depicts water in different seasons at the same location. No narration. Run
