Swarm of Common Jellyfish
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a swarm of Common Jellyfish. As its name suggests, the common jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) is the most common jellyfish species on British shores. The body is a saucer shaped 'bell', which is colorless except for four obvious violet gonads visible in the center of the disc. The outer edges are fringed with many small tentacles, and four stocky 'arms' surround the mouth. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge

Hard "c" Words
In this video segment from Between the Lions, the letter "c" appears in familiar words on a road sign, emphasizing print all around us, and highlighting the /k/ sound that the letter "c" makes. Each word is displayed on the sign, with the letter "c" highlighted to emphasize the same sound at the beginning of each word. (0:12)

Gouldian Finch Feeding Chicks in Nest
This short video gives excellent real life footage of an adult Gouldian Finch feeding its chicks in the nest. Students will enjoy the close up views of these baby birds and their colorful mouths. The Gouldian finch (Erythrura gouldiae) is an extremely attractive and strikingly colored bird. It has a grass-green upper body from the lower nape to the back and wings, a pale blue rump and a purple breast. The belly is bright yellow, and the bill is whitish, with a red or yellow tip. This is a g
Visioning Studies: A Socio-technical Approach to Designing the Future
Diane H. Sonnenwald's Keynote talk from the OII Symposium "Social Science and Digital Research: Interdisciplinary Insights", March 2012. This is a Keynote talk from the Oxford Internet Institute's Symposium "Social Science and Digital Research: Interdisciplinary Insights", held in Oxford on 12 March 2012. It is increasingly important to understand the potential impact of future technology in complex contexts as early as possible in the research and development (R&D) cycle. Understanding the

Fabrizio Scarpa : "Cellular structures for morphing wings and reflectors" In recent years the aerospace R&D community has witnessed a significant surge in research activities connected to morphing aerospace structures. This seminar describes the results from modelling and testing prototypes of wingboxes and satellite antenna reflectors made with cellular configurations. The cellular structures used (honeycombs, truss-cores, lattices) show negative and zero Poisson’s ratio behaviours, and are made from polimeric, shape memory alloy and embedded piezoelectr

Stopping Epileptic Seizures With Fewer False Alarms
Epilepsy affects 50 million people worldwide, but in a third of these cases, medication cannot keep seizures from occurring. One solution is to shoot a short pulse of electricity to the brain to stamp out the seizure just as it begins to erupt. But brain implants designed to do this have run into a stubborn problem: too many false alarms, triggering unneeded treatment. To solve this, a Johns Hopkins biomedical engineer has devised new seizure detection software that, in early testing, significan
