The War that Made America pt 1: French Indian War
This nine minute video is a documentary on the French and Indian War, known in Europe as the Seven Year War. Winston Churchill called it the first "World War". This is a good overview and well worth showing as it explains the importance of the Indians and their involvement. First rate.
The Science Behind Appetite
This video segment, adapted from NOVA, documents a ballerina's experience with a potentially deadly eating disorder: anorexia nervosa. Research suggests that a brain chemical called serotonin plays a prominent role in regulating appetite—a key factor in eating disorders. The disruption of serotonin levels by dietary changes can lead to a vicious cycle that prolongs the disorder. By restoring nutrition to her diet, however, the dancer in the video is tackling her eating disorder and resuming he
Hungry Beasts Migrate
Animal migrations from the grand to the miniscule enliven the plains of the Serengeti, one of nature's oldest ecosystems. The wildebeests are known migratory inhabitants, famous for their great surge across the plains in search of fresh grasslands. On a smaller scale and lesser known are the locusts, which also make a migratory journey when resources become scarce. Learn more about the wildebeests and locusts of the Serengeti in this video segment from Nature. Run time 02:47.
The Rhubarb Triangle
This is an interactive learning resource book targeted at families who want to learn together and improve their basic English and maths abilities.
History and the Movies: An Historian Writes a Screenplay
The process of compressing history into drama often generates sharp tensions between the historian and the dramatist. As James Reston Jr. will testify, the historian usually feels a sinking disappointment as the dramatist explains what it will take to capture and hold the attention of an audience. When Reston was asked to write a screenplay based on his own 2005 book, "Dogs of God: Columbus, the Inquisition, and the Defeat of the Moors," he leapt at the chance to resolve and to control the histo

Part of the ongoing research into polar ice trends encompasses evaluation from sophisticated computer models. At the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University, run by NASAs sibling agency, NOAA, researchers modeled a 5,000 year period to see how polar ice might behave over time depending on several different variables. This visualization shows a 120-year slice of that complete model, essentially offering a research window on to experimental processes that require longer time

UM Rosenstiel School professor Peter Swart talks about the the Rosenstiel School's acquisition of two new stable isotope mass spectrometers that allow for Clumping, which is the process of directly measuring rare isotopes of carbon and oxygen. Clumping allows scientists to directly measure the temperatures of organisms, such as dinosaurs or those located in ancient seas.

Laboratory exercises using saliva, urine, and blood were developed because they met specific, desirable learning objectives. Moreover, because they use the student's own body, they had the advantage of high student interest. Since the method of transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was uncovered, questions have arisen about the safety of using blood and other body fluids in teaching. Disinfection and safety procedures that minimize the risk of transmitting diseases in the laboratory
