Oldest Egyptian iron artefacts made from meteorites
Researchers have shown that ancient Egyptian iron beads held at the UCL Petrie Museum were hammered from pieces of meteorites, rather than iron ore. The objects, which trace their origins to outer space, also predate the emergence of iron smelting by two millennia.

Medieval representations of sodomy - Dr Robert Mills (UCL)
While sodomy in Medieval Britain and Europe was seemingly regarded as unmentionable, artists developed strategies of depicting taboo practices. Dr Bob Mills (UCL History of Art) examines an era of art history that has hitherto been much neglected in studies of forbidden sexual practices and images of judgment and punishment.

Imagining the Future City: London 2062 - editors' introduction
Is London turning into a city where football clubs such as Arsenal and Chelsea run schools, Londoners commonly convert their roofs into "micro-farms" and people are subject to separate migration laws to the rest of the UK? A new UCL book enables academics to imagine how current trends in energy use, transport, education, governance and health might have played out by 2062. http://www.ucl.ac.uk/news/news-articles/1113/181113-London2062 http://www.ucl.ac.uk/london-2062/book In Imagining the Fu

4.2 Fractions

Instead of putting the two left over biscuits back in the tin, you might instead decide to break them into halves and then give one of the resulting four halves to each person so that everyone receives a total of one and a half biscuits. In this case, the answer has to be expressed as a fraction or the equivalent decimal number:

  • 6 ÷ 4 = 1½
  • 6 ÷ 4 = 1.5

A fraction is really just another way of expressing a division because ½ means

Infinite Limits: Vertical Asymptotes
This video explains when a limit decreases or increases without bound near certain values for the independent variables, they are called infinite limits. In general, a fractional function will have an infinite limit if the limit of the denominator is zero and the limit of the numerator is not zero. The infinite limit can be either positive or negative and is determined by the sign of the quotient of the numerator and the denominator. (3:23)

The Drop and Upward Throw of a Ball are Very Similar
Previously we determined the motion graphs for dropping a ball from 2.0 meters and throwing a ball up to 2.0 meters and catching it again.  In this video I show that the reverse of the drop coupled with the drop itself is the same thing as throwing the ball upward.  Make sense?  Okay, watch the video.

Content Times:
0:13 Reviewing the previous graphs
0:25 The drop is the same as the 2nd half of the drop

4.5 4.5 Summary

  • The EU as presently constituted is itself a product of globalisation, and here the impact of globalisation has been heightened by the central institutions of the EU directly encouraging regionalism and cross-border cooperation between regions to further its own political and economic integration.

  • Regionalism has also been indirectly boosted by other EU policies, particularly the development of the Single European Market since the late 1980s
