Robins School of Business: Study Abroad
A closer look at the Robins School's Study Abroad program through the perspectives of students who spent an entire semester engaged in international study. The Robins School was named #1 for International Business by Bloomberg Businessweek in 2011. For more information, please visit www.robins.richmond.edu/international
Orient : report of the society for Near Eastern studies in Japan
This Web page gives access to the full-text of 'Orient: Report of the Society for Near Eastern Studies in Japan' (1960-2004), and despite the word 'report' in the title this is actually a substantial academic journal. Tables of contents, abstracts, and PDF files of articles are all freely available online. The journal was published in English, with occasional articles in German and French, and was devoted to reports and scholarly articles on archaeological and historical topics, with forays into
Jeff Gold Inaugural Lecture - The Leader's Conundrum or 'You cannot lift yourself up by your own shi
The aim of the lecture will be to do demonstrate the need to challenge continuing traditional images of leaders, often depicted at the apex of things, on top of a hill or at the centre of a complex web of activity. I will argue that those nominated as leaders MUST become aware of what I will call the leader's conundrum and complement their inspiration with 99 x perspiration. To appreciate this call, attendees to the lecture as respectfully asked to do the following just before the lecture: a.
Are You Ready? - Exploring Your Major: Arts and Sciences
Students in the Elon College of Arts & Sciences share their own journeys in choosing a major, and explain why staying "Undecided" for now is nothing to stress about.
2.4.2 The visual arts These are closely related to archaeology. They, too, are things we can look at and touch after all. The difference is very much one of interpretation. Are the Parthenon statues art or archaeology; is an ancient painted pot art or archaeology? In order to avoid such questions, many people use the term ‘material culture’ to cover both. For many purposes, the difference doesn't matter. In fact, it is a good illustration of the advantages of interdisciplinary work, with different kinds of app

12.400 The Solar System (MIT)
This is an introduction to the study of the solar system with emphasis on the latest spacecraft results. The subject covers basic principles rather than detailed mathematical and physical models. Topics include: an overview of the solar system, planetary orbits, rings, planetary formation, meteorites, asteroids, comets, planetary surfaces and cratering, planetary interiors, planetary atmospheres, and life in the solar system.
Behavior-based Computational Design Methodologies: Integrative processes for force defined material
With the introduction of physics-based algorithms and modeling environments, design processes have been shifting from the representation of materiality to the simulation of approximate material descriptions. Such computational processes are based upon enacting physical and material behavior, such as gravity, drag, tension, bending, and inflation, within a generative modeling environment. What is often lacking from this strategy is an overall understanding of computational design; that informati
Drawing a Mayflower Ship Cartoon
In this video, a cartoon drawing of the Mayflower is created step-by-step. Very clear directions are given.
Osmosis: A Solute and Solvent Love Story
Maybe you've joked about absorbing knowledge through osmosis, but do you really understand what osmosis is all about? The Amoeba Sisters explain the fundamentals of osmosis before walking you through some real world examples. Come learn about the process that can mean life or death for slugs, saltwater fish, and plants! (09:28)

The genome of a child who died some 12,600 years ago in Montana -- the oldest known human remains from North America -- has been sequenced for the first time. The young boy's genetic blueprint reveals that the Americas' first human inhabitants came from Asia, not Europe, laying to rest a long-standing mystery. Conducted by a consortium of scientists led by the University of Copenhagen and including Drs Andrea Manica, Anders Eriksson and Vera Warmuth at the University of Cambridge, the study is p

This video is accompanied by text. "Agriculture in the Mississippi Valley region underwent major changes after the Civil War. Farmers began thinking of farming as a business with a cash crop of wheat, corn, or cotton instead of a self-sufficient way of life. A farm began to be viewed as an outdoor factory and growing crops as production. Farmers made use of credit and considered such factors as transportation and marketing, just like other businesses. Farming also became increasingly mechanized,
Who wrote which parts of the anonymous Federalist Papers? Madison and Jefferson disagree. This is for older students, but it is excellent for getting students to understand the difficulty in attributing some work to some Founding Fathers.
This online article is from the Museum's Seminars on Science, a series of distance-learning courses designed to help educators meet the new national science standards. The article, which offers a simple demonstration of Einstein's Time Dilation Equation, is part of the Frontiers in Physical Science seminar. It uses the example of a light beam bouncing between two mirrors in a rocket to illustrate the theory, and includes a step-by-step look at the math involved in calculating the quantitative so
