T. Rex Blood?
In this video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW, learn how scientists are hoping to better understand the biology of dinosaurs by studying the insides of fossil bones. Hear about the accidental discovery of dinosaur soft tissue by paleontologist Dr. Mary Schweitzer, and how this tissue enables scientists to learn more about dinosaur physiology and pathology. For example, soft tissue could provide information about toxins that led to dinosaur deaths. Closed Captioning is included. Run time 04:
What killed off the dinosaurs? Over the years, experts have suggested everything from global climate change to a spate of massive volcanic eruptions to the most widely accepted culprit: an asteroid that unleashed global devastation. But as correspondent Chad Cohen reports in this video, some scientists believe the giant reptiles might have been taken down by something almost too tiny to see. (15:05)
This is a short movie about a lonely mammoth wandering around in a blizzard. This animation was by a David Otzen from 3D College Denmark.

An Integrated approach for 3D simulation of construction sequence
In order to eliminate design-related problems and to ease planning difficulties, a new integrated approach is required to manage and present design and construction information. This paper examines the feasibility of integrating design and construction scheduling information produced by 'industry standard' software. It describes the structure of a prototype which has been developed to generate a 3D simulation model for the cons
Enhancing graduate inter-cultural capability and embedding Internationalisation of the Curriculum at
From implicit to explicit: Enhancing graduate inter-cultural capability and embedding IoC at Griffith Universlty, Australia. Professor Michelle Barker of Griffith University, Brisbane Australia and Dr Viv Caruana of CAPRI, Leeds Met University UK discuss recent work in embedding internationalisation of the curriculum across the full range of disciplines and programmes of study at Griffith. Professor Barker also shares insights from a recent ALTC-funded project focused on intercultural or cross-
12.007 Geobiology (MIT)
This course introduces parallel evolution of life and the environment. Life processes are influenced by chemical and physical processes in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere and the solid earth. In turn, life can influence chemical and physical processes on our planet. This course introduces the concept of life as a geological agent and examines the interaction between biology and the earth system during the roughly four billion years since life first appeared.
Unintended Consequences of the New Financial Regulations [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr Jon Danielsson, Professor Charles Goodhart, Matt King | The first public event of the ESRC Systemic Risk Centre at LSE will debate whether the post crisis reforms of financial regulations will be effective in protecting us from financial excesses, or may perversely destabilise the financial system. The panel of experts will debate the topic and take questions from the audience. Jon Danielsson is the director of the Systemic Risk Centre at LSE. His research interests include financ
