Area of Diagonal-Generated Triangles of Rectangle are Equal
In this video, Mr. Khan draws a box and two intersecting lines that produce several triangles. Mr. Khan proves that the area of these diagonal-generated triangles of the rectangle are equal. He goes over the formula for finding the area of a triangle. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. The screen gets busy (and dark)--the viewer may want to open to 'full screen' to see everything. The sound is a little low. (04:35)

The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe (story reading)
This is Edgar Allan Poe's most famous horror story. There is speculation about how he knew so well the feelings of the protagonist - was he subject to similar impulses? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Cat_(short_story) It was read with my new Plantronics SAVI 440 clip-on headset. I was mainly trying it out, but it seems to work well enough. Usually I use this kind of microphone with voice recognition software, for writing of stories and articles.

ANSO 103-01, Introduction to Anthropology, Spring 2004
We enter the world with the marvelous capacity to live any one of a thousand different kinds of life, as the anthropologist, Geertz, says. Nevertheless once we begin to live that life that is to become ours, we often live it with the amazing conviction that it is the best, and possibly the only “reasonable”, way to live. Those other lives that could have been ours are also lived with equal conviction. Many of those thousand different kinds of lives are lived next door when society sees "race

Robotic Cars
This 6:34 video is about the robitic car of the future. It shows such vehicles at the GM Tech Center testing two-wheeled, battery-powered cars called EN-Vs. About five feet long and weighing under 1,100 pounds, the tiny cars don't use up much energy or space. And they're smart: With GPS, theEN-Vs can plan a route to their destination and even talk to each other. A good video to motivate students about robotics.

3.4 Pharmaceuticals for mental health: a brief history

The ‘revolution’ in drug therapy is widely credited with causing the mass closure of psychiatric hospitals in the 1950s and 1960s, meaning that patients who had previously been considered too much of a danger to themselves or others could be safely housed ‘in the community’ as long as they took the medication. However, the trend for a reduction in numbers was already evident at the time the drugs in question began to be available, and academics such as Joan Busfield and Andr

  • What are the views of people who have acquired a label of ‘mental illness’?

  • What are the views of those who determine – and patrol – the boundary between mental distress and ‘normality’?
