Eggs floating in salt water - Science Experiment for School Kids
Egg floating in salt water - Science experiment This is an experiment to understand the concepts of density and buoyant force for students. For this experiment you'll need: • Some eggs • Water • Salt • A tall measuring glass Pour some water into the measuring glass until it is about half full. Take an egg and gently put into the glass. What did u observe? The egg sinks. It dives to the bottom of the glass. Pour some fresh water into a measuring glass. Now, add lots of salt to this glass of water. You might need to add atleast 6 table spoons of salt to make the water salty. Now, take the egg and gently lower the egg into the salt water and watch what happens. The egg floats. Try to push down in the water. Its does not sink and continues to float. Repeat this experiment with another egg. Now let's understand what just happened here: An egg sinks in salt water as salt is denser as compared to fresh water. For any object to float, the weight of the object should be lesser than or equal to the buoyant force. Buoyancy or buoyant force is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed object. The weight of the water displaced = Density of the water * Volume * Gravity Obviously, since the density of salt water is more than density of fresh water, hence the weight of the water displaced will be greater in the case of the salt water, resulting in a greater buoyant force. This greater buoyancy opposes the weight of the egg and hence stops it from sinking. Infact, the more salt in the water, the more buoyant an object becomes. In this case, the density of the salt water is greater than the density of the egg. Adding the salt in the water increased the density of the water there by causing the eggs to float. Do try this experiment at home or at school with your friends and let us know how you enjoyed floating eggs :)

The Civil War, Part I: Crash Course US History #20
In which John Green ACTUALLY teaches about the Civil War. In part one of our two part look at the US Civil War, John looks into the causes of the war, and the motivations of the individuals who went to war. The overarching causes and the individual motivations were not always the same, you see. John also looks into why the North won, and whether that outcome was inevitable. The North's industrial and population advantages are examined, as are the problems of the Confederacy, including its need to build a nation at the same time it was fighting a war. As usual, John doesn't get much into the actual battle by battle breakdown. He does talk a little about the overarching strategy that won the war, and Grant's plan to just overwhelm the South with numbers. Grant took a lot of losses in the latter days of the war, but in the end, it did lead to the surrender of the South. If you want to learn more about the Civil War, we recommend these books: Battle Cry of Freedom by James McPherson The Civil War by Shelby Foote Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode.

My Brain Made Me Do It: How much control do we really have? | The Nature of Things
We’ve all heard people say, "It was beyond my control," or "I couldn’t stop myself." We like to think we’re all ultimately in control of our actions. But how true is this really? #TheNatureOfThings • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • We’ve all heard people say, ‘It was beyond my control’ or ‘I couldn’t stop myself’. We like to think that we’re all ultimately in control of our actions. But how true is this really? Neuroscientists are generating groundbreaking research that sheds light on why some people can’t stop themselves from committing harmful or criminal acts. This is creating new challenges for the justice system and making us re-evaluate the way we sentence, punish, and rehabilitate people for criminal behaviour. Featuring lead scientist, David Eagleman, Director of the Center for Science and Law, and author of international best-selling books, Incognito and The Brain, My Brain Made Me Do It challenges our most fundamental beliefs about crime, punishment, and free will. According to David Eagleman, “We are our biology… One of the most stunning things about what we're seeing in neuroscience is the degree to which who you are, and how you act, and your beliefs are all driven by mechanisms running under the hood to which you have no conscious access.” My Brain Made Me Do It includes surprising stories of people whose behaviour has radically changed when their biology has changed due to tumours, accidents, drugs, chemistry, and abuse. What causes a well-respected businessman to wake up one morning and go on a violent shooting rampage? A loving father to suddenly become a pedophile at fifty years of age? Or a cautious senior to transform into a compulsive gambler? Featuring an international cast of neuroscientists, the program explores the many ways our behaviour can be influenced by our genes, environment, and elements beyond our control. All of which leads to the essential question: When a brutal crime is committed who is ultimately to blame – the perpetrator or their brain?

Sydney Metro Means: This Engineering Life
From a shy civil engineering student to a (short-term) resident of Yass and a long-time scholar of all things Bradfield, meet Rodd Staples. The program director of Sydney Metro – Australia’s biggest public transport project – gives an insight into the life of an engineer in the 2017 Roderick Distinguished Lecture at the University of Sydney. Inspired by his grandfather Walter Hayward Staples – who worked on the Sydney Harbour Bridge – and by Dr JJC Bradfield, the world-renowned engineer who built the Coathanger, Rodd delivers a big-picture outlook at engineering as a career in the 21st century. Rodd outlines his plans for the “keyhole surgery” construction method in the delivery of Sydney Metro through the centre of Australia’s biggest city – in contrast to Bradfield’s open heart surgery of a century ago. While he’s now responsible for the delivery of the biggest urban rail infrastructure project in Australian history, Rodd weaves his way through the highs and lows of a three-decade career in civil engineering – from delivering Sydney’s new world-class metro system to how he felt when two years’ worth of work disappeared in a heartbeat when a global railway operator figured out Canberra was … well … Canberra. With thanks to the University of Sydney’s Faculty of Engineering and IT.

Traffic Management in the Era of Vehicle Automation and Communication Systems VACS
Traffic congestion on urban road and motorway networks has a strong economic and social impact. A significant and growing interdisciplinary effort by the automotive industry, as well as by numerous research institutions, has been devoted in the last decades to planning, development, testing and deployment of a variety of Vehicle Automation and Communication Systems (VACS) that are expected to revolutionise the features and capabilities of individual vehicles within the next decades. If exploited appropriately, the emerging VACS may enable sensible novel traffic management actions aiming at mitigating traffic congestion and its detrimental implications. The presentation starts with a brief introduction to the rationale and impact of traffic management, along with an overview of expected changes in the years and decades to come. Existing, planned and emerging VACS, which have an impact on the traffic flow characteristics, are discussed and classified; and potential implications for future traffic management are presented. Related research needs and specific tasks and challenges are identified and commented. Some preliminary results from the ERC project TRAMAN21, referring to (microscopic and macroscopic) traffic flow modelling, traffic state estimation, system architecture, local and network-wide control tasks and approaches, are briefly outlined.

Subscribe on Youtube: http://t21c.com/W5AZ1g Subscribe by e-mail: http://www.the21convention.com Follow on Twitter: http://twitter.com/beachmuscles Objectivism explained by James Steele II Speaker bio : James Steele (or James Steele II as he is known online and through his blog) is a 23 year old Lecturer and PhD Research Student at Southampton Solent University in the UK. James is an exercise scientist by profession having gained a first class honours degree in Applied Sport Science and during his time of study working with a wide range of elite athletic populations including; international Ironman triathlete's, Paralympic wheelchair basketball and rugby, semi professional muay thai fighters and professional football (soccer). In addition he has worked with non-athletic populations including the elderly, diseased and a population that he is currently conducting research with; sufferers of chronic low back pain. James is active as an academic pursuing his PhD research into chronic low back pain, its multifactorial symptoms and the effects of isolated resistance exercise for the lumbar extensors in treating it. He has also recently had a paper published with his colleagues, on which he was second author, presenting the scientific literature of resistance training and suggesting recommendations for its optimal implementation based upon the current evidence. Despite his clear academic focus in the area of exercise science, James also has many other areas of interest on which he occasionally writes when the time permits at jamessteelii.blogspot.com, one of these topics being philosophy. James has always taken an interest in the nature of the universe and man's relationship to it yet never had a conceptual framework for which to understand it. A few years ago whilst reading Mike Mentzers books on High Intensity Training James was introduced to a philosophical perspective on exercise based around reason and logic. It was from here that he was introduced to philosophy as a subject to study and more specifically Ayn Rand's Objectivism. Since then James has dedicated time in his personal life to further his knowledge on all areas of philosophy, and specifically Objectivism, providing himself with an armchair philosopher's perspective on the universe, man and life.

For the first time, Model 3 production (28,578) exceeded combined Model S and X production (24,761), and we produced almost three times the amount of Model 3s than we did in Q1. Our Model 3 weekly production rate also more than doubled during the quarter, and we did so without compromising quality. GA4, our new General Assembly line for Model 3, was responsible for roughly 20% of Model 3s produced last week, with quality from that line being as good as our regular GA3 line. We expect that GA3 alone can reach a production rate of 5,000 Model 3s per week soon, but GA4 helped to get us there faster and will also help to exceed that rate. Tesla expects to increase production to 6,000 Model 3s per week by late next month. We also reaffirm our guidance for positive GAAP net income and cash flow in Q3 and Q4, despite negative pressures from a weaker USD and likely higher tariffs for vehicles imported into China as well as components procured from China. Q2 deliveries totaled 40,740 vehicles, of which 18,440 were Model 3, 10,930 were Model S, and 11,370 were Model X. Model S and X deliveries are in line with our guidance provided on May 3. As we previously noted, we are in the process of changing the quarterly production pattern of those vehicles for the various worldwide regions to ensure a more linear flow of deliveries through the quarter. Both orders and deliveries for Model S and X were higher in Q2 than a year ago. Our overall target for 100,000 Model S and Model X deliveries in 2018 is unchanged. 11,166 Model 3 vehicles and 3,892 Model S and X vehicles were in transit to customers at the end of Q2, and will be delivered in early Q3. The high number of customer vehicles in transit for Model 3 was primarily due to a significant increase in production towards the end of the quarter. The remaining net Model 3 reservations count at the end of Q2 still stood at roughly 420,000 even though we have now delivered 28,386 Model 3 vehicles to date. When we start to provide customers an opportunity to see and test drive the car at their local store, we expect that our orders will grow faster than our production rate. Model 3 Dual Motor All Wheel Drive and Model 3 Dual Motor All Wheel Drive Performance cars will also be available in our stores shortly. The last 12 months were some of the most difficult in Tesla’s history, and we are incredibly proud of the whole Tesla team for achieving the 5,000 unit Model 3 production rate. It was not easy, but it was definitely worth it. Our delivery count should be viewed as slightly conservative, as we only count a car as delivered if it is transferred to the customer and all paperwork is correct. Final numbers could vary by up to 0.5%. Tesla vehicle deliveries represent only one measure of the company’s financial performance and should not be relied on as an indicator of quarterly financial results, which depend on a variety of factors, including the cost of sales, foreign exchange movements and mix of directly leased vehicles.

RF Exposure Measurements Technical Challenges for RF Site Surveys
http://www.emfnews.org/Car-Radiation-Cell-Phones-Faraday-Cage-and-Cancer.html http://www.emfnews.org/howitworkschips.html http://www.emfnews.org/home_protection.html http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meters.html Measurement of the emissions from cell towers presents particular technical challenges beyond those encountered for broadcast antenna sites. To understand these challenges, a few comments about radio frequency measurement are required. Protocols for the measurement of RF energy for the purpose of human exposure assessment often recommend the use of an "isotropic broadband probe" because this type of sensor responds equally to energy arriving from any direction, and over a broad frequency range, as does the human body. These instruments are commonly used because they permit a quick and simple measurement. Unfortunately, some of the meters used for typical RF compliance surveys are unable to accurately measure the low power densities present at some cell sites. An alternate approach is required. A related problem involves the concurrent presence of other signals besides those from the cell phone system. The "broadband" characteristic of the isotropic broadband probe means that it will measure any signals across a wide range of frequencies. The reading produced by the instrument will be the combination of all signals present. In a large number of cases, the other signals present near a cell tower will be as strong as the cellular signals that one is trying to measure. Realistically, this composite measurement of all signals may be the most relevant exposure metric, but an interpretation of the significance of a reading sometimes requires that one know the frequency of the signal that produced it. For instance, is it FM, TV, cellular, or something else? http://www.emfnews.org/articles/ http://www.emfnews.org/products.html http://www.emfnews.org/store/home-cell-phone-and-mobile-tower-radiation-meters.html

World Tallest Building Burj Khalifa Story In Urdu/Hindi
In this Video i will tell you About the World tallest building which is Burj Khalifa Burj Khalifa has redefined what is possible in the design and engineering of supertall buildings. By combining cutting-edge technologies and cultural influences, the building serves as a global icon that is both a model for future urban centers and speaks to the global movement towards compact, livable urban areas. The Tower and its surrounding neighborhood are more centralized than any other new development in Dubai. At the center of a new downtown neighborhood, Burj Khalifa’s mixed-use program focuses the area’s development density and provides direct connections to mass transit systems. Burj Khalifa’s architecture has embodied references to Islamic architecture and yet reflects the modern global community it is designed to serve. The building’s Y-shaped plan provides the maximum amount of perimeter for windows in living spaces without developing internal unusable area. As the tapering tower rises, setbacks occur at the ends of each “wing” in an upward spiraling pattern that decreases the mass of the tower as the height increases. These setbacks were modeled in the wind tunnel to minimize wind forces. The design of the Tower was significantly influenced by its performance with respect to the wind, in both its shaping and orientation. The building went through many wind tunnel tests and design iterations to develop optimum performance. The exterior cladding, comprised of aluminum and textured stainless steel spandrel panels, was designed to withstand Dubai’s extreme temperatures during the summer months by using a low-E glass to provide enhanced thermal insulation. Vertical polished stainless steel fins were added to accentuate Burj Khalifa’s height and slenderness. The unprecedented height of the Burj Khalifa required it to be an innovative building in many ways. Design techniques, building systems, and construction practices all required rethinking, and in many cases new applications, to create a practical and efficient building. The structural system, termed a “buttressed core,” is designed to efficiently support a supertall building utilizing a strong central core, buttressed by its three wings. The vertical structure is tied together at the mechanical floors through outrigger walls in order to maximize the building’s stiffness. The result is an efficient system where all of the building’s vertical structure is used to support both gravity and lateral loads. The Tower incorporates numerous enhancements to the fire and life safety systems, including “lifeboat” operation for elevators which allows for them to be used for controlled evacuation under certain situations, decreasing total evacuation time by 45% over stairs alone. Due to its height, the building is able to utilize ventilation where cooler air temperatures, reduced air density, and reduced relative humidity at the top of the building allow for “sky-sourced” fresh air. When air is drawn in at the top of the building, it requires less energy for air conditioning, ventilation, and dehumidification. The building’s height also generates a substantial stack effect due to the thermal differences between the buildings’ interior and exterior, but Burj Khalifa was designed to passively control these forces, reducing the need for mechanical means of pressurization. Burj Khalifa has one of the largest condensate recovery systems in the world. Collecting water from air conditioning condensate discharge prevents it from entering the wastewater stream and reduces the need for municipal potable water. The tower’s management systems utilize smart lighting and mechanical controls which lower operational costs, allow for a more efficient use of building resources and services and better control of internal comfort conditions. Individual electric energy monitoring systems enable energy optimization of the tower’s systems over its lifetime. With over 185,800 sq m (2,000,000 sq ft) of interior space designed for Burj Khalifa, planning of the building’s interior space began at the earliest stages of its design focusing on three main goals—to recognize and acknowledge the building’s height, to integrate its structural and architectural rationale, and to appreciate the locale’s heritage, history and culture. The interiors of the uppermost floors were designed to reflect celestial influences. This is in contrast to the lower floors, which are inspired by natural elements. An art program for the Tower was developed in which over 500 individual pieces of art were placed and specified throughout the Tower Subscribe Us! https://goo.gl/KKvejk Watch Our All Videos https://goo.gl/hXRSU6 Like Us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/storieshubonline

Triunfo-Lobo Community Association/ LA County Dept of Regional Planning
This video is of a meeting of the Triunfo-Lobo Community Association with representatives of the Los Angeles county Department of Regional Planning, June 12, 2014. On June 16, 2015, with virtually no public notice, a Temporary Emergency Ordinance to place moratorium on vineyard permits in the Santa Monica Mountains was put before the LA County Board of Supervisors. Drafted by LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, the alleged reason being given for the ordinance was the ongoing drought in California. The Malibu Coast Vintners & Grape Growers Alliance responded with data proving inconclusively that grapevines are drought tolerant and beneficial to their surroundings when grown sustainably using best farming practices, as are all vines in the region. The rationale behind continuing the ordinance was then amended as a response to an unexplained upsurge in the number of vineyard permit applications received over the previous six months. The Alliance quickly discovered that these applications were made in response to statements made by representatives Emma Howard and David McDonald from the LA County Department of Regional Planning. During a meeting with members of the Triunfo Lobo Community Association on June 12, 2014, these representatives urged members to apply for a vineyard permit now if they thought that they might want to plant a vineyard in the future, since the regulations would be changing. They were assured that if a permit had been issued they’d be grandfathered in regardless of when the permit was granted. This increase in permit requests remains the cornerstone for the Supervisor's argument for adoption of an ordinance that will effectively ban vineyards in the Santa Monica Mountains. ThThis entire situation has been a case of the Supervisor or the Department of Regional Planning requesting information from the Alliance and then ignoring the data when it doesn't suit their goal. Whether a matter of ignorance or arrogance, bad politics are the antithesis of good government. Staff at the Department of Regional Planning has NOT been given enough time to thoroughly research this matter and are under continual pressure to rush the vineyard amendments through the system.

Paul Sabin: "The Bet: Our Gamble for Earth's Future" | Talks at Google
In 1980, the iconoclastic economist Julian Simon challenged celebrity biologist Paul Ehrlich to a bet. Their wager on the future prices of five metals captured the public's imagination as a test of coming prosperity or doom. Ehrlich, author of the landmark book The Population Bomb, predicted that rising populations would cause overconsumption, resource scarcity, and famine—with apocalyptic consequences for humanity. Simon optimistically countered that human welfare would flourish thanks to flexible markets, technological change, and our collective ingenuity. Simon and Ehrlich's debate reflected a deepening national conflict over the future of the planet. The Bet weaves the two men's lives and ideas together with the era's partisan political clashes over the environment and the role of government. In a lively narrative leading from the dawning environmentalism of the 1960s through the pivotal presidential contest between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan and on into the 1990s, Paul Sabin shows how the fight between Ehrlich and Simon—between environmental fears and free-market confidence—helped create the gulf separating environmentalists and their critics today. Drawing insights from both sides, Sabin argues for using social values, rather than economic or biological absolutes, to guide society's crucial choices relating to climate change, the planet's health, and our own.
