The Austrians Were Right, Yet Again
After three-plus years of floundering around, a consensus has finally arrived that we are back in recession. Growth is not happening. The meager statistical growth of the past few years — no one dared claim it amounted to full recovery — was probably illusory.
There is real growth, and there are government statistics. The statistics have misled every gullible person,
Seismology in the Classroom
Students learn about seismology by using a sample seismograph constructed out of common classroom materials. The seismograph creates a seismogram based on vibrations caused by moving a ruler. The students work in groups to represent an engineering firm that must analyze the seismograph for how it works and how to read the seismogram it creates.
Consortium Toolkit for ULOs (Fusion)
Fusion provides guidance for third sector, user-led health organizations on setting up legal frameworks for collaboration. It provides a useful overview of models of consortium as well as some consortium monitoring tools.
Filmmakers@Google: Exporting Raymond, with Phil Rosenthal & John Woldenberg
Philip Rosenthal and John Woldenberg spoke to Googlers in Mountain View about the series Everybody Loves Raymond and their film Exporting Raymond. This is the Q&A following the screening of Exporting Raymond. Exporting Raymond's DVD release is August 2nd.
View the trailer at www.exportingraymond-movie.com .
About Exporting Raymond:
"Phil Rosenthal created one of the most successful sitcoms of all-time, "Everybody Loves Raymond." He was a bona-fide expert in his craft. And then.... the Russia
Students are introduced to the concept of air quality by investigating the composition, properties, atmospheric layers and everyday importance of air. They explore the sources and effects of visible and invisible air pollution. By learning some fundamental meteorology concepts (air pressure, barometers, prediction, convection currents, temperature inversions), students learn the impact of weather on air pollution control and prevention. Looking at models and maps, they explore the consequences o
Art in Renaissance Venice
This unit considers the art of Renaissance Venice and how such art was determined in many ways by the city's geographical location and ethnically diverse population. Studying Venice and its art offers a challenge to the conventional notion of Renaissance art as an entirely Italian phenomenon.
Space School - Milky Way
Despite being one of billions of galaxies in the universe, the Milky Way is special. Nestled in a corner of this gigantic galaxy sits Earth, a simple grain of rock...and it has life. (05:40)
Positive surprise at Morgan Stanley
July 21 - Summary of business headlines: Morgan Stanley results outshine Goldman Sachs; Pepsi tempers outlook citing shaky U.S. consumer; Jobless claims data show job market stuck in neutral. Conway G. Gittens reports.
Students explore the impact of changing river volumes and different floodplain terrain in experimental trials with table top-sized riverbed models. The models are made using modeling clay in an aluminum baking pans placed on a slight incline. Water added "upstream" at different flow rates and to different riverbed configurations simulates different potential flood conditions. Students study flood dynamics as they modify the riverbed with blockages or levees to simulate real-world scenarios.
Ramp and Review
In this hands-on activity rolling a ball down an incline and having it collide into a cup the concepts of mechanical energy, work and power, momentum, and friction are all demonstrated. During the activity, students take measurements and use equations that describe these energy of motion concepts to calculate unknown variables, and review the relationships between these concepts.
Mt. St. Helens from Landsat: 1973 to 1992
These images show Mt. St. Helens almost a decade before the May 18, 1980, eruption, approximately three years after the eruption, then a pair of images over the following decade, as the landscape recovered. Notice in particular the area northwest of the mountain, past the Toutle River, where forest coverage has recovered somewhat in the past ten years. North is up in all these images. The 1973 Landsat 1 image used MSS bands 7, 5, and 4 (called MSS 4, 2, and 1 on the later Landsat satellites) dis
