Focus on Fabrics: Putting Materials to Good Use
The goal is for students to understand the basics of engineering associated with the use, selection, and properties of fabrics. A wide variety of natural and synthetic fibers are used in our clothing, home furnishings and in our travel and sports equipment. The specific material chosen for each application depends on how closely the properties of the material match the design needs. This unit focuses on the different characteristics of fabrics and shows students how natural and synthetic fabrics
AE CS5.5: Orbit Camera Rigs
After Effects CS5.5 makes it easy to create a 3D Orbit Camera Rig, which simplifies circular animations. Chris Meyer expands on this by demonstrating how to perform smooth crane and zoom moves with this rig as well.
7.5 The spread of spam
Computer crashes are often the result of viruses, worms or Trojans as unfortunately some internet users want to cause havoc or vandalise your computer. This unit provides a guide to the downsides of living with the Net. Advice on how to deal with these dangers is provided and security issues like spyware and adware are explained. The unit also deals with protecting children online, and provides links to various helpful websites which deal with the problems raised.

" Mother to Son" by Langston Hughes
This selection features a narrator reading " Mother to Son" by Langston Hughes. The reading is accompanied by video segments to illustrate. The theme of the poem, never give up, appears in print at the end of the segment. ( This poem is suggested for use with Common Core Third Grade, Unit One.)
Regulated Markets and Auctions - Microeconomic Analysis
Microeconomic Analysis - Spring 2006. Resource allocation and price determination. By the end of the semester, students should know the basic theory, models, and results of the topics covered. They should be able to use this knowledge to answer questions and analyze real-world situations. They should also be able to identify which theory or model is appropriate to analyze a particular question and explain why their answers are correct in intuitive, as well as mathematical, terms.
Bulbs and Roots: Radishes
Radishes have roots. These roots help the radishes absorb nutrients and water from the soil. The radish and root are buried underneath the soil. The green leaves are above soil to gather sunlight for the plant.

Canary in a Coal Mine (MWV16)
Coral reefs are dying a death of a thousand cuts and their disappearance threatens not only the incredibly diverse ecosystem that depends on them, but also human health and welfare. In this episode of MicrobeWorld Video marine scientists Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Ph.D., chair of marine studies at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, and Kiho Kim, Ph.D., director of the environmental studies program at American University, explain the important relationship between microbes and corals,
Research Lecture - Animal Behavior
This course covers the principles of biology as they relate to animal behavior, with broad coverage of animal groups. Special attention will be paid to the emerging discipline of behavioral ecology.
Advanced Digital Integrated Circuits - Spring 2006
This course aims to convey a knowledge of advanced concepts of circuit design for digital VLSI components in state of the art MOS technologies. Emphasis is on the circuit design, optimization, and layout of either very high speed, high density or low power circuits for use in applications such as micro-processors, signal and multimedia processors, memory and periphery. Special attention will devoted to the most important challenges facing digital circuit designers today and in the coming decade,
Chimpanzee external anatomy
Chimpanzees have five fingers on each hand and five toes on each foot. An opposable "thumb" is on each hand and an opposable toe is also on each foot. This allows the chimp to grasp things with both its hands and feet.
Neutron Star Collision
Systems of orbiting neutron stars are born when the cores of two old stars collapse in supernova explosions. Neutron stars have the mass of our Sun but are the size of a city, so dense that boundaries between atoms disappear. Einsteins theory of general relativity predicts that the orbit shrinks from ripples of space-time called gravitational waves. After about 1 billion simulation years, the two neutron stars closely circle each other at 60,000 revolutions per minute. The stars finally merge in
ED: The Milibands and the making of a Labour leader [Audio]
Speaker(s): Mehdi Hasan, James Macintyre | Ed Miliband is perhaps the least understood political leader of modern times. Mehdi Hasan and James Macintyre's book, ED: The Milibands and the making of a Labour leader, reveals where he has come from and where he is going. It charts his unique upbringing, against the backdrop of tragedy and with a prominent Marxist thinker for a father. ED follows his coming of age at Oxford, his election to Parliament and asks whether the pressures of being Labour p
