Science of NFL Football - Newton's First Law of Motion
"Science of NFL Football" is a 10-part video series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced in partnership with the National Football League. In this segment, NBC's Lester Holt breaks down Isaac Newton's First Law of Motion and how it can change how fast players can speed the football up or slow it down. Professors Tony Schmitz of the University of Florida and Jim Gates of the University of Maryland explain why the control of inertia is so vital to the outcome of the game.
Debits and Credits - Accounting
The difficulty with accounting has less to do with the math, as it does with its concepts. Now, there is no more difficult yet vital concept to understand than that of Debits and Credits. Debits and Credits are at the very heart of the 'double entry bookkeeping' that has been the foundation stone on which the financial world's accounting system has been built for well over 500 years. Now, given the length of time, is it any wonder that confusion has surrounded the concept of Debits and Credits
Cu 21, Sn 79 (wt%), peritectic transformation
This microstructure is generated via a peritectic reaction (L+ε = η), which bears some similarities to the more familiar eutectic reaction (L = α + β). Upon cooling from the liquid phase field, primary ε is formed, which can be seen here as a slightly darker phase than the sheath of η surrounding it. The η sheath is the product of a peritectic reaction between ε and liquid. The peritectic reaction rarely goes to completion, since the formation of η around the ε phase separates it from
Cu 21, Sn 79 (wt%), peritectic transformation
This microstructure is generated via a peritecticÃ¢â‚¬Â²s reaction (L+ÃŽÂµ = ÃŽÂ·), which bears some similarities to the more familiar eutectic reaction (L = ÃŽÂ±+ÃŽÂ²). Upon cooling from the liquid phase field, primary ÃŽÂµ is formed, which can be seen here as a slightly darker phase than the sheath of ÃŽÂ· surrounding it. The ÃŽÂ· sheath is the product of a peritectic reaction between ÃŽÂµ and liquid. The peritectic reaction rarely goes to completion, si

Custom sneakers for Goldy Gopher
University of Minnesota student Chris Hui started an unusual business when he was only a teenager - custom sneaker painting. Now a junior in the Carlson School of Management, his custom sneaker company C2 Customs has served a wide range of clients - even some famous musicians and athletes. From Lupe Fiasco to LeBron James and now Goldy Gopher, Chris creates a custom pair of shoes that speaks to the wearer and their look.
18.310C Principles of Applied Mathematics (MIT)
Principles of Applied Mathematics is a study of illustrative topics in discrete applied mathematics including sorting algorithms, information theory, coding theory, secret codes, generating functions, linear programming, game theory. There is an emphasis on topics that have direct application in the real world. This course was recently revised to meet the MIT Undergraduate Communication Requirement (CR). It covers the same content as 18.310, but assignments are structured with an additional focu
The effect of metacognitive strategies on subsequent participation in the middle school science clas
Metacognitive activities allow students to monitor the way in which they think, which encourages sustained thinking about science concepts. Teachers can sanction procedures that allow students to articulate the thinking process which in turn may foster greater voluntary participation. Research has shown that metacognitive strategies allow students to link concepts together, resulting in deeper understanding of science concepts. This promotes more in-depth questioning and understanding. In this r
MWV Episode 42 - USA Science and Engineering Festival - Part 1
On October 23 2010, MicrobeWorld attended the first annual USA Science and Engineering Festival on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. In part 1 of this two-part video, Stanley Maloy, Dean of the College of Science at San Diego State University, takes us on a tour of the microbiology related exhibits at the festival. Featured in this episode are the American Society for Microbiology booth "Where the Microbes Are (Everywhere!)" and the members of the Microbial Sciences Initiative at Harvard Un
Limits to Growth and concepts of sustainable development
Paper presented to Revival of Political Economy Conference, Coimbra, Portugal, 21st - 23rd October, 2010. Abstract: Evidence validating Club of Rome models showing Limits to Growth (Turner 2008; Donella H. Meadows et al. 2004; Simmons 2000; Jackson 2009) will be considered. It will be shown that Limits to Growth calls into question key assumptions regarding projected minimal economic costs of per capita Contraction & Convergence strategies for achieving global greenhouse emission reduction targ

The paper investigates knotting techniques as a method for generating wall systems. The essential matter of the paper is to demonstrate the potential of knotted, algorithmic architecture through different research studies, which share the knotting of linear elements as a common methodology for design development. Combinatorial Productivity implies that by combining linear elements hidden properties of a system emerge and thereby the system becomes productive.
TALAT Lecture 1501: Properties, Characteristics and Alloys of Aluminium
This lecture provides a survey of the aluminium alloys available to the user; it describes their various properties; it gives an insight into the choice of aluminium for a proposed application. In the context of this lecture not every individual alloy and its properties have been treated in detail, but rather divided into alloy types with reference to the most commonly used alloys. For further details on alloy properties the reader is referred to available databanks like ALUSELECT of the Europea
