Focus on Physics: The Equilibrium Rule—A Personal Discovery Building an Understanding of Physical Principles Figure 1. Burl and Paul on a scaffold. Before college, I worked with master sign painter Burl Grey, who, like me, was passionate about science but didn’t study physics in high school. One day Burl asked which of the two ropes holding up our sign-painting scaffold (Figure 1) experienced more of the “stretching force” called tension.
The Story of Bottled Water - The Story of Stuff Project The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day), employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows virtually free from the tap. Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industry’s attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call for viewers to make a personal commitment to avoid bottled water and support public investment in clean, available tap water for all.
The Changing Shape of Cinema: The History of Aspect Ratio John Hess From FilmMakerIQ.com traces the evolution of the screen shape from the silent film days through the widescreen explosion of the 50s, to the aspect ratio of modern digital cameras. If you’ve ever wondered why and how the formats we use today came to be, this is something you’ll want to watch. The topic is too broad to summarize for those that would prefer to not watch his video but, there is one piece that definitely stuck out to me. At the end Hess closes with this: “It’s still only a shape. A canvas on which to draw your story.

Yoga - with dogs It started in the US, when a growing band of health-conscious dog owners wanted a way of combining their favourite exercise with spending quality time with their pets. Now 'Doga' - yoga with dogs - is growing in popularity in the UK, mainly thanks to the efforts of Swiss-born yoga teacher Mahny Djahanguiri. She runs classes in London for people and their pets, and while the dogs do not really get a yoga workout themselves, they certainly play a part in some of the poses. A spokesperson from the Dogs Trust said: "It is important to remember that dogs can't tell us when they have had enough. Doga, and any variation of it, should always be carried out under the watchful eye of trained professionals."

Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones – fantastical fun, fantastically human I came late to Diana Wynne Jones. I managed to miss her first time around, my childhood reading filled instead with Asterix and the Hardy Boys, but now I burn with the zeal of the newly converted, after finding her charming and exasperating Wizard Howl a bona fide star of bedtime reading. We first hear of our eponymous wizard in the opening chapter, where Jones is busy poking fun at the comfortable cliches of fantasy fiction.

Mars is one of our closest neighbors in the solar system and likely the next planet that humans will set foot on. One big reason we’re interested in Mars is because water once flowed there, and may still flow there today. Almost everywhere water is found on Earth, we find life. Could the same be true of Mars?
Science and Technology of WWII So What is This About? Teachers, here you will find classroom lesson plans related to the science and technology of WWII. Social studies and history teachers can use these lessons to imbue science and math into their classrooms. Frames of Reference : Richard Leacock This PSSC film utilizes a fascinating set consisting of a rotating table and furniture occupying surprisingly unpredictable spots within the viewing area. The fine cinematography by Abraham Morochnik, and funny narration by University of Toronto professors Donald Ivey and Patterson Hume is a wonderful example of the fun a creative team of filmmakers can have with a subject that other, less imaginative types might find pedestrian. Run time 26 min.Producer Richard LeacockProduction Company Education Development Center, Inc.Sponsor Eric PrestamonAudio/Visual sound, black and white Reviewer:leacevedo - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 12, 2012 Subject: Small correction Hello, I just want to point to a detail in this movie Frames Of Reference that may create confusion. There is a part where one of the characters states that the motion of the Earth relative to the Sun produces even smaller fictitious effects than the motion of the planet around its axis.
