Job search
Welcome to this Futures workbook on finding work. It is split into several sections describing different techniques for finding work. You can dip in and out of the different sections; however it is not wise to rely on only one mechanism for finding work. It is a competitive market for final year students and new graduates and so you should try many alternate ways to find work.

6.2 Do supermassive black holes really exist?

One outstanding feature of the black-hole model is that the black hole must be supermassive. Can one at least detect the presence of a massive central object?

  • How might a massive central object be detected using information from galactic rotation curves?

  • By measuring rotation speeds near the nucleus of the galaxy. The faster the rotation speeds, the greater the enclosed mass.

So the answer is yes. In NGC 4151

Dating Lava Flows on Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii
For hundreds of thousands of years, lava flows have created intricate patterns on the slopes of Hawaiʻi's Mauna Loa volcano. Until the mid-1970s, it was impossible to know when each of the flows occurred. However, as this video segment adapted from NOVA describes, scientists are now using tiny artifacts of life encased in hardened lava flows to piece together the mountain's complex geological and biological history. Closed captioning included.  Run time 04:36.

VeggieTales-God Wants Me to Forgive Them!! Part 2

This video is a lesson on forgiveness. In the first episode, Jr. Asparagus has trouble understanding why he must forgive an irritating grape tourist family (who call themselves "the grapes of wrath") after they insult him.

It moves a little faster than the first episode, and Larry's antics--always a highlight--are i
