Collier on Democracy and Violence
Paul Collier of Oxford University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the ideas in his new book, Wars, Guns, and Votes, a study of democracy and violence. Collier lays out the incentives facing a dictator who is considering the seductive appeal of holding an election. He defends his empirical work that forms the basis for many of the policy ideas in the book. Collier then makes the case for international military intervention to support democracies in poor countries.
Munger on Many Things
Mike Munger of Duke University talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about many things. Listeners sent in questions for Mike and Russ to talk about and they chose ten of the most interesting questions with the idea of talking about each for six minutes. The topics are the scarcity of clean water, asset bubbles, the role of Fannie and Freddie in the financial crisis, can a business pass a tax on to its customers (or maybe even its workers), compassionate food, the study of economics, how to choos
Krazy Kat goes Wooing
Krazy Kat's serenade outside the window of Ignatz Mouse meets with a barrage of bricks. This video is based on the comic published in the Hearst newspaper in 1916. It was originally filmed on 1 reel of 1 (ca. 70 ft.) : si., b&w ; 16 mm. ref print. This demonstrates film history, silent movies, as well as history of animation.
Puerto Rico's Markets
When exploring culinary Puerto Rico, what better place to start than a market? And who better to serve as our guide than Chef Wilo Benet, A Culinary Institute of America graduate and one of the island's premier chefs whose restaurant Pikayo is a beacon to all who visit in search of the tastes of Puerto Rico. He'll give us a basic course in the Puerto Rican market basket at the Plaza del Mercado, a small, but lively market in the Santurce area of San Juan. Here, we get our first look at the bount
17.484 Comparative Grand Strategy and Military Doctrine (MIT)
This course will conduct a comparative study of the grand strategies of the great powers (Britain, France, Germany and Russia) competing for mastery of Europe from the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. Grand strategy is the collection of political and military means and ends with which a state attempts to achieve security. We will examine strategic developments in the years preceding World Wars I and II, and how those developments played themselves out in these wars. The following qu
"DMC Upside": Sugar Art Showcase

The Role of Europe in a Multilateral World - November 19, 2009
In his lecture, “The Role of Europe in a Multilateral World,” Romano Prodi will examine the benefits and challenges presented by the European Union’s expansion. Although the enlargement of the union has had significant impact on the democratic transition in eastern Europe and has extended European markets, there is no unanimity on issues of security, energy, and foreign affairs. Prodi maintains that if the EU aims to play a key role on the world’s political stage, it will need to develop
Edexcel HND unit : engineering science (Nqf L4) : document transcript
This is a document transcript about Edexcel HN Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4). The aim of the unit is to investigate a number of major scientific principles that underpin the design and operation of engineering systems. It is a broad-based unit, covering both mechanical and electrical principles. It is intended to give an overview that will provide the basis for further study in specialist areas of engineering. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Acade
The anatomy cookbook : a dissection guide with recipes
The Anatomy Cookbook has been written to accompany an anatomy and physiology course for bioengineers who would otherwise have missed out on the opportunity to study real organ systems at first hand. It is not an alternative to a standard anatomy text, it acts more as a laboratory supplement. The fun bit is that your kitchen takes the place of the dissection room. Each recipe provides an insight into one or more organs, and all you need to do is go to the supermarket and be prepared to think abou
Getting Started: 05 Equalizing volume
Make sure volume levels are uniform using Equalize Volume Levels. Equalize multiple clips with Match Volume.
Transportation and Spatial Modelling
The objective is to get insight and practice in the design and use of mathematical models for the estimation of transport demand in the framework of major strategic transportation planning. The course consists of a number of lectures and several exercises. Study Goals: 1. Insight in the function of mathematical models in transportation and spatial planning; 2. Knowledge of theoretical backgrounds of models; 3. Knowledge of application areas of models; 4. Ability to develop one's own plan of anal

Distance Learning Material
The materials provided are taken from three postgraduate modules which students study as part of the School's distance learning MA degree programmes in 'Literary Linguistics', 'Applied Linguistics, Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching' and 'Modern English Language'. Our courses generally consist of 10 units which cover the key areas of study within particular disciplines, in conjunction with material documenting the latest developments within each field. The 'Descriptive Linguistic
Health and lifestyle of Nepalese migrants in the UK.
The health status and lifestyle of migrants is often poorer than that of the general population of their host countries. The Nepalese represent a relatively small, but growing, immigrant community in the UK, about whom very little is known in term of public health. Therefore, our study examined the health and lifestyle of Nepalese migrants in the UK.
Safety Measures : A case study for use in teaching in Engineering Ethics
This is an Engineering Ethics case study from the IDEA CETL. It concerns the obligations that a company may have to implement safety measures, even when this is not dictated by the letter of the law. It raises issues such as safety and risk, and duty to obey the law. The case study is aimed at students who have done some ethics before. It can be integrated into any module where safety is considered, but would be particularly suited to modules where chemical processing plants are studied. The te
Smith & Brown: A case study for use in teaching in Engineering Ethics
This is an Engineering Ethics case study from the IDEA CETL. It examines issues around the intellectual property of a joint project and subsequent research. The case study is aimed at students who have not studied ethics before. The teaching format is a one hour session with small group discussions.
