The painter of this little-known Romantic work, a new acquisition by the Gallery, shows the remnants of the Grande Armée in the greatest defeat in military history. What sense does he make of the event? The questions he poses about war and true heroism are still pressing.

Junior Lab consists of two undergraduate courses in experimental physics. The courses are offered by the MIT Physics Department, and are usually taken by Juniors (hence the name). Officially, the courses are called Experimental Physics I and II and are numbered 8.13 for the first half, given in the fall semester, and 8.14 for the second half, given in the spring. The purposes of Junior Lab are to give students hands-on experience with some of the experimental basis of modern physics and, in the
This video has footage of the river Po. A speaker talks about the benefits of it's fertile banks and shows how the towns, fields and factories are effected by flooding.
Tithonus fell in love with Aurora, Goddess of the Dawn, who comes every day in her silver chariot, and he asked her for eternal life. Unfortunately he forgot to ask for eternal youth as well, so he continues to age. In Gulliver's Travels the Struldbrugs are in a similar plight, they get older and older but can't die. When Tennyson is describing how Tithonus feels he is most probably describing his own feelings of desolation since his dear friend Arthur Hallam died of a stroke at the age of
Rob Lees, co-author of When Professionals Have to Lead and a member of the School's "Programme for Excellence" faculty, describes the background to the launch of two new open programmes, The Law Firm Partner and The Professional Service Firm Partner. He highlights the programmes' distinguishing features, in particular their unique blend of academic and practically based sessions which provide partners not only with an in-depth understanding of the concepts of PSF management and the partner role,
This video is accompanied by text. "In the late eighteenth century, primitive methods of travel were still in use in America. Waterborne travel was uncertain and often dangerous, covered-wagon and stagecoach travel over rutted trails was uncomfortable, and all types of travel were very slow. Americans were aware that a transportation network would increase land values, stimulate domestic and foreign trade, and strengthen the American economy.
In 1794, a private company completed the Phila
Way to long, over five hours, this video shows what it is really like on the floor of the House. The transcript along side the video is very handy and contains words that can be used for a word wall. A real eye-opener for students as they can see what the nearly empty chamber looks like.
It has been shown that French speakers display a “high-involvement style” in interaction, with frequent use of interruptions, overlaps and disagreements. This presentation by Dr Kerry Mullan (coordinator of the French Program at RMIT University) examines this style, and draws comparisons with the interactional style of Australian English. Using excerpts of recorded conversations Dr Mullan analyses examples of French and Australian English interaction, and proposes how authentic data might be
This expos? introduces preparations for a publication based on what I have found to be a ?missing link? in the library of educational source materials. The skills necessary to record and interpret the complexity of the architectural design process are often illusive. The sophistication of computer modeling and graphics applications only adds to the dilemma of making clear and concise decisions about how to communicate the essence of one?s design intent. The publication will define and illustrate
6.637 covers the fundamentals of optical signals and modern optical devices and systems from a practical point of view. Its goal is to help students develop a thorough understanding of the underlying physical principles such that device and system design and performance can be predicted, analyzed, and understood. Most optical systems involve the use of one or more of the following: sources (e.g., lasers and light-emitting diodes), light modulation components (e.g., liquid-crystal light modulato

The era of national prohibition began in 1920 with the establishment of the Eighteenth Amendment and was enforced by the Volstead Act passed by Congress that same year. The Act forbade the manufacture and sale of beverages with an alcoholic content greater than .5 percent. Zealous supporters of this law, including many women and parishioners, believed that prohibiting the manufacture and sale of alcohol would eliminate the social problems caused by intoxication.
