Generation of Alternating Current
In this interactive resource adapted from the Wisconsin Online Resource Center, learn how a generator produces alternating current. More specifically, see how slip rings, brushes, an armature loop, and a magnetic field interact to produce single-phase alternating current. Animations show how positive and negative voltages are induced into the armature loop as it rotates through the magnetic field, and how the polarity of the voltage changes periodically, visualized as a sine wave.

Darwin’s Compass: Why the evolution of humans is inevitable
Orthodox neo-Darwinism very much emphasises the random and contingent. Re-run the tape of life, as Steven Jay Gould famously observed, and the outcomes would be utterly different. Terrestrial life maybe, but certainly no humans. They, like tulips and tape-worms, are just another evolutionary fluke. The basis of this is hardly surprising: think of random mutations, massive shifts in the environment, not to mention the odd giant rock dropping out of the sky. Life is on a roller-coaster and is flun
