Judaism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architectural sites include Tempio Israelitico, in Rome, a sumptuous example of Italian Jewish architecture; the tiny Cordoba Synagogue; Budapest's Great Synagogue on Dohany Street, a mixture of Byzantine and Moorish design elements; and, in New York City, the largest synagogue in the world: Temple Emanu-el
Building to extremes( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many saw the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center as the end of the skyscraper. They were wrong. This program interviews architects and engineers who have dedicated their lives to reaching new heights, and investigates the risks and benefits of building tall. Two projects-Taipei 101 and the Shanghai World Financial Center-are featured as they race to become the world's tallest building. And as plans go forward for a new building on the site of the WTC and for an audacious half-mile-high tower in Dubai, can innovative materials and design techniques overcome critical safety issues?
Buddhism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acids, bases, and neutralization( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first lesson, five aqueous solutions are tested for degrees of acidity and alkalinity. The nature of acids and bases is examined. In lesson two, table salt is produced by mixing small pieces of aluminum with solutions of hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide. Current flow in acid, neutral, and alkaline solutions is demonstrated. An experiment using ammonia water and dry ice tests varying degrees of acidity. An on-site visit to a neutralization plant in Japan shows how acid levels are reduced by putting quantities of limestone into the Yukawa River. A third lesson demonstrates precautions that should be taken when performing experiments involving heat. Investigations that use chemicals such as chlorine bleach, ether, and metallic sodium, which should not be attempted in a school lab, are also demonstrated. (37 minutes)
Hearing by Massachusetts( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deconstructs the emotional effects evoked by music and other sounds; experiments show that our sense of hearing is constantly alert even while asleep; explains why deep voices are attractive to the opposite sex.

The Oil curse( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discovery of oil is often celebrated as a one-way ticket to wealth and economic growth. But in some developing countries, striking it rich has had the opposite effect-making oil more of a bane than a blessing for the poorest inhabitants. This program contrasts two cases: Ecuador, where the toxic environmental legacy of oil has sparked a landmark lawsuit over international corporate accountability, and western Africa, where today's oil companies have embraced new ethical and political approaches to business. In Angola, the oil industry is creating health and education development projects to ensure that some part of a potential>200-billion jackpot will reach and benefit the local population. (57 minutes)
Circulatory system : your plasma pipeline( Visual )

Topics include the structure and function of the heart; the role of blood as a connective tissue; arteries, veins, and the flow of blood; the functions of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma; the lymphatic system; and maintaining a healthy circulatory system
Smell by Donna Szoke( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This program investigates how psychological principles determine a smell's level of repellence. After testing natural smells found to be offensive to most people, scientists at Monell Chemical Services Center and the University of California propose that our reactions are heavily shaped by personal experience. Demonstrations of how olfactory lobes work are featured. Host Nigel Marven observes how one of nature's worst smells, skunk, fails to bother everyone at a busy shopping mall. But this soon may change: the Monell scientists are developing the world's first universally abhorrent odor, so disgusting it could be used for crowd control
Ethics( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moral philosophy lies at the heart of today's most heated issues-abortion, human cloning, assisted suicide, financial conflicts of interest, and environmental stewardship.

Plato's Republic, Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, Kant's Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals, and Mill's Utilitarianism are considered, along with the contributions of Epicurus, Hume, Bentham, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, John Rawls, and others

Harty, of La Salle University; and Helen Cooper, authority on medieval literature at the University of Oxford, this program explicates this complex alliterative poem, examines its treatment of familiar Arthurian themes, and illustrates why it is considered one of the finest romances of the Middle Ages
