Terror and Consent: The Wars for the Twenty-First Century
The threat of terrorism is now part of the landscape of daily lives all over the world, yet we have hardly begun to think properly about it. In his new book Terror and Consent and in this lecture Professor Bobbitt argues that we are fighting these wars with weapons and concepts which though useful to us in previous conflicts have now been superseded. He aims to provide a fundamental rethinking of most generally accepted ideas about terror in the modern world - what it is, how it operates and ab
Living in an era of global terror

Globalisation has led to a free flow of money, people and ideas, which has benefited many people in the West in recent years and enhanced our standard of living, but the price paid is a reduction in security. As we see a shift towards a de-regulated glob

Solving Systems of Equations by Substitution
This lesson is for ntermediate Algebra Level. In the lesson, Professor Burger shows how to solve systems of equations using a technique known as substitution. In this approach, students solve one equation for one of the variables (eg y) and then plug the value (what y is equal to) into into the other equation (anywhere a y appears). This substitution will allow you to solve for x and then in turn solve for y. Professor Burger walks the viewer through several different types of

Triangle Factory FIRE, March 25, 1911 - Ladder 117 FDNY
On March 25, 1911, 147 victims of the Triangle Shirt Waist tragedy, the largest part of them young girls, either crashed to death in panic stricken leaps from ledges 100 feet above the ground or, were trapped within the building, having no way of opening the doors that had been locked to prevent theft.

In his inaugural address on January 20, 1981, President Reagan promises to limit the reach of the federal government. (1:29)
Geological Perspectives on Climate Change
Throughout Earth’s history, mass extinctions of species were closely related to physical and chemical changes in the atmosphere and the oceans. These variations were controlled by heat from the sun, the distribution of oceans and continents, the extent of ice sheets; volcanic eruptions and asteroid impacts, air-borne particles, the eruption of methane and greenhouse effects. Greenhouse episodes were amplified by carbon dioxide and methane feedback effects from warming oceans and drying ve

Eliminating Nuclear Weapons
The Rt Hon Sir Malcolm Rifkind MP on how, in the 21st century, nuclear weapons pose a greater danger than ever before and their possession is less necessary. The time has come to forge agreement on a process of multilateral disarmament. Achieving an end-state of "zero" has emerged as an important policy goal for a number of 21st Century challenges. The most prominent example is the "Global Zero" campaign to eliminate nuclear weapons. Yet, in a century of globalization, when the life of every ind
Watching evolution in action
Watching evolution in action: Using ancient DNA to study climate change, meteorites, and mass extinctions.
This unit explores the Holocaust, as the destruction of European Jewry is commonly known. The mass killing represented by the Holocaust raises many questions concerning the development of European civilisation during the twentieth century. This unit, therefore, covers essential ground if you wish to understand this development.
