Workshop 8: Bend and Stretch
We all expect a spring to stretch or compress when a force is applied, but forces can even deform solid objects like the floor or the top of a table. In this workshop, students in a high school classroom explore ideas about tension and normal force. By applying a force to a spring and measuring the distance the spring is stretched, the students calculate the force consta
Derecho Internacional Privado (2012)
El Derecho internacional privado (= DIPr.) es el sector del ordenamiento jurídico de cada Estado que se ocupa de la regulación jurídica de las “situaciones privadas internacionales” (= “concepción privatista del DIPr.”). Esta concepción privatista del DIPr. es una concepción con coherencia científica (=el objeto del DIPr. está compuesto por una serie de relaciones jurídicas de caracteres similares: son relaciones entre particulares y que presentan carácter internacional).

Joseph Lorenzo Hall: "War Stories from Technology Policy" | Talks at Google
Joseph Lorenzo Hall, Chief Technologist at The Center for Democracy & Technology, works on issues of technology policy and digital rights. In this talk Joseph will take you through a technical report he coordinated, authored by twenty of the world's top computer security and cryptography experts. He'll talk about the doubt cast this September when documents leaked by Edward Snowden exposed a systematic effort by the U.S. National Security Agency to subvert encryption software, hardware, standard
Molecules in Liquid
As molecules in a solid get hotter, they vibrate faster and faster and eventually slip out of their lattice-work pattern. When this occurs, the substance melts, changing from a solid to a liquid state. Eureka was a series of short cartoons on physics that ran on public television in the 1980's. The video explains the concept in simple and well illustrated way. Good for students of any elementary school level.

Authors@Google: Jeff Potter
Jeff Potter comes to the Google Cambridge office to talk about his book "Cooking for Geeks". From Jeff's website: "If you're the curious type who asks why just as often as what, my book, "Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food" will show you how to use science when working in the kitchen." The Washington Post called it "one of the most useful books on understanding cooking, kind of like a rock-and-roll version of Harold McGee's 'On Food and Cooking.'" http://www.cooking
7.349 From Molecules to Behavior: Synaptic Neurophysiology (MIT)
Like transistors in a computer, synapses perform complex computations and connect the brain's non-linear processing elements (neurons) into a functional circuit. Understanding the role of synapses in neuronal computation is essential to understanding how the brain works. In this course students will be introduced to cutting-edge research in the field of synaptic neurophysiology. The course will cover such topics as synapse formation, synaptic function, synaptic plasticity, the roles of synapses

Saving our ecologically important coral reefs
By: nsf Coral reefs are dying. Harboring some of the most diverse species of marine life, corals are ecologically important. Paul Sikkel, a marine ecologist from Arkansas State University, explains why many coral reefs are dying and how we can save them.

Against the odds? Pathways to peace in East Timor, Aceh and West Papua
States rarely disintegrate in the way that former Yugoslavia did in the 1990s. Many thought Indonesia would disintegrate in the wake of a large number of violent internal conflicts at the turn of the century. East Timor was an exception that did break away to achieve independence. Aceh followed the more historically common path of reintegration after a peace process that made substantial concessions to separatists. West Papua is another Indonesian exception in failing to achieve positive peace a
