The Jamestown Colony
Before the arrival of the English, the Spanish influence in the New World extended from the Chesapeake Bay to the tip of South America. Spanish possessions included the developing cities of Mexico, Peru, and Cuba. Along the northern edge of Spain’s land were small missions and “presidios” or fortresses that stretched from the Atlantic coast, ran along the Gulf of Mexico and extended into the plains of Texas and the Rio Grande River valley. In 1585, Sir Walter Raleigh took on one of the fir
Intro to Chemistry: 2.1: History of the Atom (1/2)
Join award winning teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams as they interactively teach Chemistry: 2.1: History of the Atom. This lesson focuses on the history, beginning with John Dalton's theory, and the size of the atom. A diagram of Rutherford's model of the atom is also shown and explained. ( 8:20)
Authors@Google: W. Scott Poole
Author W. Scott Poole visits Google Cambridge to speak about his new book, Monsters in America. From the book's description: "Salem witches, frontier wilderness beasts, freak show oddities, alien invasions, Freddie Krueger. From our colonial past to the present, the monster in all its various forms has been a staple of American culture. A masterful survey of our grim and often disturbing past, Monsters in America uniquely brings together history and culture studies to expose the dark obsessions
Visitors to this site can follow the life cycle of a star, beginning with its formation from matter exploded outward by the Big Bang, followed by its expansion into a red giant as nuclear "fuel" is consumed, and ending with its "death" in a supernova, after which it becomes a neutron star or black hole.

The fate of the EU and its impact on the U.S.
The Euro zone is still trying to dig itself out of its financial mess and prevent more countries, like Spain and Italy, from sinking into a black hole. At a panel discussion called, The Finance Crisis: Lessons Learned from Canada and the Way Forward, at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C., Robert Rubin, former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, sat down with Chrystia Freeland and told her how he thinks the EU crisis could end and what impact it could have on the U.S.
A 3-Dimensional Model of the Magnetosphere (WMS)
The earths magnetosphere protects the earth from high-energy charged particles coming from the sun. Some charged particles are deflected by the magnetosphere, while others become trapped and produce the aurora. This presentation shows a 3-dimensional model of the magnetosphere. The features that it highlights are flat ribbons representing the paths of charged particles deflected by the magnetosphere, triangular ribbons representing magnetic field lines, and colored surfaces representing constant

Jim Bovard: Libertarian Muckraker Mark Penn: Global Leadership Differential Equation Model Differential Equation Model - Problem 1 of 4 Differential Equation Model - Problem 2 of 4
Jim Bovard talks with Jeff Deist about his incendiary career as a journalist, the American people as Mencken's "Booboisie", and why the Nanny State has him stocking-up on cigars.
Burson Marsteller CEO Mark Penn talks Nov. 11, 2011, at the Thunderbird Global Business Dialogue in Glendale, Arizona.
This video explains how a function can be modeled using a differential equation if it is growing or shrinking exponentially. In the differential equation model, k is a constant that determines if the function is growing or shrinking. If k is greater than 1, the function is growing. If it is less than 1, the function is shrinking. (2:20)
This video is a continuation and explains how a function can be modeled using a differential equation if it is growing or shrinking exponentially. The example provided solves a differential equation problem that involves exponential growth. (4:19)
This video is a continuation and provides another example of solving a differential equation problem related to exponential growth. (3:39)
