Making Stuff: Smaller PBS Airdate: January 26, 2011 DAVID POGUE: Imagine a world with buildings that can ride out earthquakes; bacteria that make gasoline; tiny devices that can repair individual cells, or even D.N.A.; gossamer threads, strong enough to hold up a bridge; or an elevator to the stars. These visions of the future are based in the discoveries of today, as a new science of materials emerges from the elemental building blocks of the universe, promising a future in which we can create virtually anything we want, atom by atom. I'm David Pogue, and I'm on a quest to discover how the world's smallest materials are changing our lives: swarms of nano-machines that combat cancer on the cellular level with bee venom;...

Today’s Big Idea We are continually reminded wherever we turn (and by Big Think, perhaps, most frequently of all) of the fact that in technologically advanced nations the pace of life is accelerating. …Economic constraints have put pressure on businesses (and therefore their employees) to do more with less, and in less time. Simultaneously, tech companies are locked in a kind of arms race to make everyday living ever more automated and efficient, thereby enabling us to demand still greater productivity of ourselves. Yet one of the most significant contributions cognitive psychology has made in recent decades to our understanding of the mind is the idea that the mind uses two parallel systems of thinking: System 1 - the fast, intuitive, gut decision making engine, and System 2, its slower, more deliberate sibling. Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky are the pioneers in this work, and their studies reveal that in most cases, system 2 makes much better decisions.
Khi những cơn gió mang hơi nước thổi vào khắp các cánh rừng miền Đông Nam Bộ. Tiết trời như chuyển mình từ những đám mây trắng bồng bềnh sang màu xám như nặng nề hơn, nhằm báo hiệu một mùa mưa đến gần. Những loài thực vật ở đây cũng đã nhận biết được khúc giao mùa. Chúng bắt đầu thay những chiếc áo già nua chống chọi với 6 tháng mùa khô, khô hạn và khoác lên mình chiếc áo mới xanh biếc đón nhận những cơn mưa đầu mùa tắm mát.

The MIT Department of Physics has been a national resource since the turn of the 20th century. Our Department has been at the center of the revolution in understanding the nature of matter and energy and the dynamics of the cosmos. Our faculty - three of whom hold Nobel Prizes and 21 of whom are members of the National Academy of Sciences - include leaders in nearly every major area of physics. World leaders in science and engineering, including 10 Nobel Prize recipients, have been educated in the physics classrooms and laboratories at MIT.
