Réduction de la mortalité maternelle - Dakar 2010 : Introduction au colloque. (audio)

Le président de séance rappelle que ce colloque est un moment de réflexion pour confronter les approches et harmoniser le langage. La sexualité humaine est un objet social complexe qui, dans toutes les sociétés du monde, articule le langage, les affects et la physiologie.

La sexualité humaine, à la différence de la sexualité animale, dépasse la fonction de reproduction. Nous sommes des êtres de langage et de société. Le terme même de "reproduction" est trop

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy (bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi )
Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy being heat treated and also mechanically deformed. A bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi is cooled, causing transformation to the martensitic (2H orthorhombic) phase. The process is reversed in the second half of the video, as the specimen is heated again. The rate at which transformation occurs is controlled by heat flow effects. (The shear process itself tends to take place very rapidly.) The martensitic phase is internally twinned. This is very cl

Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy (CuAlNi single crystal)
Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy being heat treated and also mechanically deformed. A CuAlNi single crystal (2H orthorhombic phase ) is compressed (vertical axis) at room temperature, causing activation of two sequential twinning deformations. As austenite, the crystal is cube-shaped, whereas in the martensite form it is sheared. Six different sheared martensite crystals, having well - defined prism shapes (three of which appear in this video), can be created by pressing on 3 di

Einstein's Theory of Relativity
Einstein's special theory of relativity states that the same laws of physics hold true in all inertial reference frames and that the speed of light is the same for all observers, even those moving with respect to one another. In this video segment, adapted from NOVA, one of Einstein's thought experiments is re-created to reinforce one consequence of special relativity: that events that are simultaneous to one observer are not to an observer in a different reference frame that is moving with resp

Into the Wind (4 Part Series)
Into the Wind is a four-part film meant to excite young people about how they can interact with the wind while teaching the basic physics. Each section contains an activity young people can do themselves (fly a kite, sail a model sailboat, make a pinwheel). Animations explain the physics behind these real-world kid’s activities. These lessons lead to examples of more involved wind technologies such as hang gliding, sailing, windmills, and wind turbines. The film moves quickly, switching betwee
