This week on Car Talk, if one car drafts behind another to improve its gas mileage, does the car in front suffer? Tom and Ray's answer, or lack thereof, may bring the late Physics Professor Tisza back from the grave, just to administer a dope slap. Meanwhile, dope slaps might also be in order for Jessica's mechanics, who will only discuss her car problems with her boyfriend, while ignoring her. Also, the solution to Nancy's Miata's hood problem may lie in her local tanning salon; Melanie is about to learn a very expensive lesson about what her oil pressure light means; and, one listener offers the real definition of "primitive" four-wheel drive. All this and more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: January 18, 2014] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Magliozzi, Ray Magliozzi.

This week on Car Talk, why does the horn in John's wife's Golf start blowing when he drives it? John's wife thinks he's setting off the "lard butt indicator" under the driver's seat. Has VW really come up with something so sophisticated? Elsewhere, Wendy has discovered that giving up her beloved Super Beetle has done great harm to her social life. She used to be able to meet guys while working on its (many) problems. But, her new Toyota is both too reliable and too complicated. Also, Sara learns an expensive lesson in why you shouldn't let a Physics Grad student fix your fuel pump--with you and your dog stuck in the car while it's on the lift; and can Jeff safely use Coleman fuel in his Civic next time he gets stranded while camping? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: June 8, 2013] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Magliozzi, Ray Magliozzi.

Before Georgetown physics professor Francis Slakey decided to climb the highest mountain on every continent and surf every ocean, he had shut himself off from other people. His lectures were mechanical; his relationships were little more than ways to fill the evenings. But as his journey veered dangerously off course, everything about him began to change. A gripping adventure of the body and mind, To the Last Breath depicts the quest that leads Slakey around the globe, almost takes his life, challenges his fiercely held beliefs, and opens his heart. The scientist in Slakey explores the history of Robert Falcon Scott’s doomed Antarctica expedition, the technology of climbing, and the geophysics of waves. But it is the challenges he endures and the people he encounters - a Lama who gives him a mysterious amulet, a life-or-death choice atop Everest, an ambush at gunpoint in Indonesia, a head-on collision in the high desert - that culminate in a moving lesson about what it means to be human. 1.

Economics in Three Lessons:Henry Hazlitt's 1946 book Economics in One Lesson sold more than a million copies. It is perhaps the best selling economics book of all time. In this volume, Hunter Lewis, a Hazlitt admirer and student, provides a sequel and update. The central lesson of Hazlitt's seminal work is that economic thought and policy must consider all the consequences of an action, not just the immediate or most visible ones. Hazlitt is right that this is the kernel of all good economics. Lewis covers this theme and also introduces two more lessons: how a free and uncontrolled price system creates prosperity and how a controlled or manipulated price system creates only crony capitalist corruption and, ultimately, poverty and economic failure. The great merit of this volume is its simplicity. Anyone can listen to it and understand it. It is an ideal introduction to economics. One Hundred Economic Laws:In this groundbreaking volume, Lewis does what no one has attempted to do, at least not for many decades: It collects in one place some of the most important laws of economics. Everyone understands the importance of understanding the laws of physics and other natural sciences. Are there also laws of economics? Can understanding them also make our lives better? This volume answers with a resounding "Yes" to both questions. We need the laws of economics to help guide our choices and actions in a very uncertain world. We also need them to protect us from the “thinkers for hire” who, paid by special economic interests, try to persuade us to ignore reality. This short audiobook is also a complete course in economics. Unlike the dry-as-dust and often irrelevant textbooks forced on high school and college students, it is authored in a lively and even sparkling style. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Lorie.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The Empire State Building has vanished into thin air! Gone, too, are Grant’s Tomb and Grand Central Station, and all hell is breaking loose in New York City!What’s the story? One grizzled old newspaper reporter known simply as Pop - a role made for Walter Matthau - is on top of it...and better stay there, because his livelihood is on the line. If Pop fails to get to the bottom of the vanishing landmarks, his job will disappear as well - and land in the hands of the newspaper publisher’s son-in-law.Any cub reporter could find a someone breaking the laws of the city, but tracking down a suspect who’s breaking the laws of physics is a different story altogether. But Pop’s like a dog with a bone, and he won’t let go until he gets at the truth...no matter how strange or astounding it is. In the end, he gets a lesson in larceny, proving that when you get down to business, size really does matter.Also features the science fiction adventures “Battle of Wizards,” in which an epic battle between science and magic unfolds with an entire planet hanging in the balance; and Hubbard's first published foray into science fiction and fantasy, “The Dangerous Dimension,” the story of a mathematics professor who discovers an equation that enables him to teleport anywhere he can imagine ... even if he doesn't want to go.The city that never sleeps comes vibrantly to life as the audio version of The Professor Was a Thief takes you on a magical mystery tour of one of the greatest disappearing acts ever. 1.

With Instaread Summaries, you can get the summary of a book in 30 minutes or less. We read every chapter, summarize and analyze it for your convenience. This is an Instaread Summary of Creativity, Inc. by Ed Catmull. Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary: Chapter 1 - Every Sunday, as a kid, Catmull watched on TV The Wonderful World of Disney, where Disney explained how they made their animations and incorporated technological breakthroughs into their work. One day, Catmull had a life-changing realization: A good animation was measured by whether or not the character on the screen made you believe it was a thinking being. He decided he wanted to become an animator and create emotional characters. Catmull graduated with a double major in Physics and Computer Science from the University of Utah. In his graduate program, he met Professor Ivan Sutherland, a pioneer in computer graphics and director of the computer graphics program. The program was funded by the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), the creators of the first computer network, ARPANET, which would later evolve into the Internet. ARPA was developed as a response to the threat of the Soviet Sputnik satellite, the first of its kind. The U.S. felt threatened by Soviet technological advancements and they developed ARPA to stay up with the Soviets. To Catmull, the lesson to be learned from this was when the competition gets smart, you need to get smarter. Catmull found enormous inspiration in the computer graphics program, not only from the technology he was discovering but also from his fellow students. The collaborative and creative atmosphere he experienced there was something he later tried to emulate at Pixar. In 1972, Catmull made his first animated film, a digitized model of his left hand. Hand became a reference for state-of-the-art computer animation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gonzo Shimura. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/023237/bk_acx0_023237_sample.mp3.

The Effects of an Inquiry-Based Computer-Simulated Lesson in Physics ab 79 EURO The effects of Inquiry-Based Computer Simulation with Cooperative Learning on Scientific Thinking in a physics lesson
Despite on-going efforts to improve physics education through training of pre-service teachers, significant challenges remain. However, in this work we report the development of Malaysian pre-service physics teachers training that is based on the German Didaktik tradition. One of the models in this tradition is the didaktik analysis in that it involves a thorough analysis of specific science content as contained in curriculum specifications and textbooks, analysis of literature on students alternative conceptions, developing a lesson plan, developing teaching sequences within that lesson plan that involve teaching and learning activities, and subsequent reflection, and enacting the lesson plan and associated teaching sequencing in microteaching, and in the practicum. Overall it seems the introduction of didaktik analysis-based intervention led to a better and deeper understanding of physics and methods course content, and the teaching practices in the microteaching and practicum, both of which gave confidence to teach secondary school physics.
