Medieval Suits of Armor
This four minute video explains the various parts of armor. The explanation provides insights into the problems of wearing armor and how it was used. Each part of the armor is explained, but the narrator goes too rapidly for students to be able to follow and so a word list or a drawing of a knight with the parts labeled would be of benefit.

"It Didn't Pan Out as We Thought It Was Going To"Amos Owen on the Indian Reorganization Act

In this 1970 interview with historian Herbert T. Hoover, Amos Owen, Mdewakanton Sioux tribal chairman, gave a mixed verdict on the Indi

According to behaviourism, all behaviour is learned and maintained by its consequences. B. F. Skinner (1905–1990) devised apparatus and methods for studying these effects. Figure 3 shows a ‘Skinner Box’ designed for use with a rat. The early behaviourists often examined animal learning and then extrapolated it to human learning. This was because they proposed that the fundamental principles of learning underpin

Pour apporter une réponse à ces questionnements, Jean Hauser revient sur les problèmes juridiques qu’ont posés dans les années 70 la nécessité de redéfinir la filiation ainsi que la question du transsexualisme. Il démontre, p
