Fundy Tides - Scotts Bay Timelapse
Ever wonder what it was like living near the highest tides in the world - reaching a rise of up to 50 feet? This time lapse shot at Scots Bay, NS, in the Bay of Fundy shows twelve hours of tide in only 120 seconds. People have often found themselves facing peril when they did not keep an eye on the clock while beach combing. When the tide is rolling in at an average rate of 8 feet of depth per hour it can be a chore just staying ahead of it.
James Watt and the Steam Engine
This fifteen minute video is about Jame Watt and his life in the 1770s. It slowly shows how a steam engine works with good graphics. It also explains the expansion of the steam engine outside of water pumps and how a random act gave Watt an idea on how to make a more efficient steam engine. Good insights into how Watt felt. There is an advertisement in the middle of the video that should be skipped. A drawing of the steam engine would be of benefit. Of note is his use of horsepower as a measurem
Origins of Slavery in America

planting the seeds of a slavery system. About 20 years later slavery became legal. This video is a nice overview of how slavery became part of America's life style. It does not tell about slavery in other countries. The video should be reviewed first due to images. (03:01)

Baby Loggerhead Turtles
Closeup videography shows loggerhead turtles hatching from eggs laid on the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean coast. They crawl out of the sand toward the glimmering body of water and begin to swim. The newborn turtles swim for safety, avoiding predators by hiding. After 36 hours they arrive in deep water, where they can live well by eating jellyfish and lobster. Scientists have studied dead loggerhead turtles and found that the majority have starved to death after eating undigestible pl
