A Night in the Coral Reef
This video segment, adapted from NOVA, explores how a coral reef ecosystem changes over the course of a day. When the sun is up, colorful fish and other plant-eating animals are active and dominate the reef. At night, the plant-eaters take shelter and are replaced by nocturnal carnivores, some of which exhibit special adaptations that enable them to successfully hunt in complete darkness. Closed captioning included.  Run time 02:49.

How to Safely Watch a Solar Eclipse
It is never safe to look directly at the sun's rays - even if the sun is partly obscured. When watching a partial eclipse you must wear eclipse glasses at all times if you want to face the sun, or use an alternate indirect method. This also applies during a total eclipse up until the time when the sun is completely and totally blocked. (01:19)

3.6 Summary

  • The common-sense narratives of the crime problem in the UK can be broken down into a series of distinct claims that make assessing them easier.

  • Those claims can be tested against quantitative and qualitative evidence. Both types of evidence suggest that the narrative of change from a secure to an insecure society is at best partial, overestimating the tranquillity of the past, and the uncertainty and riskiness of the present.
