Winter Lecture Series - 2009: Y-Worry? Generation Y's attitudes towards debt and money
Dr Lisa McNeil of Marketing investigates Generation Y. Generation Y is said to be the ‘want it now’ generation. A new study of consumption culture takes a closer look at the spending priorities of these young consumers and reveals that the very act of consumption is now integral to most of their social interactions, and fuelled by easy access to debt. But what implication does this have for society as Gen Ys grow older?

Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought
This is the website of the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought, a non-governmental research institute based in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. The name Aal al-Bayt is a reference to the family of the Prophet Muhammad, to which Jordanian royal family claim descent. This choice of name is intentionally aimed at bringing together the various schisms within Islam, particularly that between Sunnis and Shi’is. This interest in dialogue and reconciliation extends also to inter-faith

Norse Mythology: The Creation of the Universe The universe was empty. Ginnungagap, seeming emptiness and endless space, became two regions, Niflheim, the land of snow andice, and Muspelheim, the land of fire. The collision of fire and ice caused a huge explosion. Millions of tons of water went into the air they formed a body of a giant. The giant took many years to be formed, his name was Augelmir. His offspring called him Ymir and was the first of the mountain giants

7.341 Brightening up Life: Harnessing the Power of Fluorescence Imaging to Observe Biology in Action
One summer in the 1960s a young Japanese researcher, with the help of a few high school students, chopped up ten thousand jellyfish. As a by-product of this harvest, they isolated a green fluorescent protein (GFP). Since then, GFP has triggered a revolution in our understanding of gene expression and signaling in live cells. In this seminar, we will examine how this small protein generates fluorescence, i.e. absorbs light of one wavelength and emits light of a longer wavelength. We will discuss
9.00 Introduction to Psychology (MIT)
This course surveys questions about human behavior and mental life ranging from how you see to why you fall in love. The great controversies: nature and nurture, free will, consciousness, human differences, self and society.

Synthesis and characterization of the properties of Ti3SiC2/SiC and Ti3SiC2/TiC composites
In 1996, the ternary compound titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) was for the first timesynthesized as a single-phase, fully dense compound. Its characterization revealed aunique combination of properties. For its high fracture toughness, low hardness toelastic modulus ratio and excellent damage tolerance, it was dubbed a soft ceramic. Italso displayed good thermal shock and oxidation resistance. In this work, thereinforcement of this material with silicon carbide and titanium carbide particles w
