Combined Gas Law Demonstration
This video introduces an apparatus that can be used to show the mathematical relationship between volume, pressure, and temperature in the combined gas law. It is done in a way that introduces the apparatus to the teacher, but it could still be used in the classroom to introduce it to the students. It does not go into much major detail about the gas law itself, or the math involved, but it is an interesting device that might keep students interested in the topic.  This video is a pub for th

Charles Law Lecture and Demonstration
Charles Law states that the volume of a given mass of a gas is directly proportional to its Kevin temperature at constant pressure. This video explains one of the gas laws, Charles' Law, and runs through the math needed to solve a problem using Charles' Law. It is in lecture form, with a teacher at whiteboard, but the demonstration afterwards is very interesting. The demonstration shows how Charles' Law works by using a bowl of water, a candle, and a glass. (5:04)

"The Loving Game" by Vernon Scannell (poetry reading)
Vernon Scannell is one of my heroes, there are many similarities in our lives. In case you didn't notice and because times have changed, the word "ring" at the end refers to courtship - which in those days involved an engagement ring. To put it crudely, a girl wouldn't "put out" unless she had a ring on her finger. Fashion in the 50's was the Edwardian Style - better known as the Teddy Boy - but later influenced by the American Zoot suit, jackets were getting longer. On a tall man a "fing

"The Owl" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (poetry reading)
In some versions the fourth line in each stanza is repeated. I find it easier to read this version. Some echo has been added to the sound track. When cats run home and light is come, And dew is cold upon the ground, And the far-off stream is dumb, And the whirring sail goes round, Alone and warming his five wits, The white owl in the belfry sits. When merry milkmaids click the latch, And rarely smells the new-mown hay, And the cock hath sung beneath the thatch Twice or thrice his roundelay
