Article :: Creating High Dynamic Range Images in a Snap with HDR Express
High Dynamic Range (or HDR) photographs have an “image problem,” if you’ll pardon the pun. Aside from the assumption that all HDR images have an unnatural, painterly quality to them (not so!), there is also the perception that it is difficult to create HDR photos. Photoshop master Dan Moughamian presents the first in a series that will show you nothing could be further from the truth: that HDR images can in fact be both realistic and carry an added element of drama or beauty.
Mathematical Description of Natural Phenomena
This lecture is going to let students learn mathematics literacy applied to realistic problems according to the differentiation and integration which play an important role not only in the explanation of physical phenomenon, but also in the explanation of natural phenomenon, social phenomenon, and so on.

Introduction a la méthode des éléments finis en mécanique des solides
Polycopié d'un cours numérisé de l'INSA de Lyon. Le but de ce polycopié est de donner les principes de base de la méthode des éléments finis en élasticité. C'est une méthode de calcul qui consiste à découper en "éléments" la structure à étudier. Ces éléments sont définis par des noeuds dont le rôle sera largement précisé et dont la réunion doit représenter aussi fidèlement que possible la pièce a calculer. Cette façon d'opérer est satisfaisante pour prendre en compte
3.5.1 Expectancy versus effect One of the biggest problems in evaluating psychological interventions is that even if a treatment appears to ‘work’ it can still be difficult to ascertain whether the results were a consequence of the treatment itself. The improvement might have occurred anyway, with or without the treatment, or the apparent benefits might have resulted from other factors, such as being able to discuss the difficulties with a professional who understands. Any treatment can lead to expectations

History's Turning Points - 1347 AD The Black Death
NOTE: There is brief frontal nudity at approximately 11:35 (old paintings). It's actually a little difficult to see--the instructor may choose to skip past this point.

Within three years, a third of Western Europe's population was dead. It was the greatest calamity in history. A 25-minute video that is well-acted and written. A great le
