    Quantum Physics and Universal Beauty – Q&A with Frank Wilczek

    Thanks very much for the talk, its a fantastic subject. If everything were symmetrical or is symmetrical You’ve got the particles and the forces and you’re saying they’re part of the same thing. You would expect, or at least I think you would expect, that everything will come to equilibrium pretty soon. As it seems, we’re 14 billion years down the line, We’ve still got interactions and it doesn’t seem to settle down. Is there a chance that there are more things? Because I know that it’s a human thing to want beauty. It’s a very objective, sorry a subjective, wish. It might be beautiful but it won’t seem that…

    AP Physics 1: Universal Gravitation Review

    mr.p: Good morning. Today are going to review the universal gravitation topics covered on the AP physics one exam. Bo: Hey guys. Billy: Hey Bo. Bobby: Hi Bo. ♫ Flipping physics ♫ mr.p: Let’s start with Newton’s Universal law of Gravitation which I like to call the big G equation. The force of gravity that exists between any two objects is equal to big G, which is the universal gravitational constant, times the mass of one object times the mass of the other object divided by r squared. Where big G is a constant and it is given as… Big G is 6.67 times ten to the negative 11 newtons,…

    Constitution Lecture Extra: Coining Money and Legal Tender

    I think it’s worthwhile occasionally to look around at claims that are being made and to try and apply what we’ve learned so far in this series to try to reach conclusions. This is a response to a video made by Dr. Tom Woods called, “Is Ron Paul Wrong on Money and the Constitution?” He made this video as a response to critics who claim that Ron Paul is wrong when he says that the Constitution requires gold and silver money, not fiat money. I invite you to watch this video, and you may wish to do so before playing the rest of this lecture. Dr. Woods does a good…

    Re-imagining Australia: human rights for everyone – Prof Gillian Triggs | Lecture Curtin University

    >>Prof Terry: I welcome everybody to Curtin University’s Inaugural Human Rights Lecture. We are honoured tonight that this important lecture will be delivered by the inspirational Gillian Triggs, and I think a person who we would all agree has so impressively taken on her important role without fear or favour. As Professor Triggs will discuss later, education plays an absolutely key role in re-imagining Australia where human rights are fully realised and enjoyed by all. Indeed, this annual lecture was established to encourage a strong human rights culture both within and outside our university. The responsibility we all share in this respect I think has been beautifully captured in some…

    The Effective Use Of The President’s Time

    Welcome to the second in our series, our year-long series, of Nixon legacy forums. We’ve already had one on January 8th on domestic affairs. And, this one is on the effective use of the President’s time. Now, these are jointly sponsored by the Nixon Foundation and Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. To fully appreciate how you meet the goal of the effective use of the President’s time, you have to realize the importance of the immediate staff in the Oval Office. The people who schedule and brief and move and advance the President in every step, not only in the White House, not only all over America, but all…

    Constitution Lectures 2: Interpreting the Constitution (HD version)

    Welcome to Part 2 of our lecture series on the Constitution. If you haven’t already watched Part 1, I strongly recommend you do so, as it gives you the fundamentals of where the Constitution gains its legitimacy. This lecture will, in essence, be about how to read the Constitution and how to determine the correct meaning from its passages. We hear a lot of politicians and pundits talk about different parts of the Constitution and what they mean, and often they contradict each other. Even Supreme Court justices can’t seem to agree. So, how do we determine what is the right reading? Currently, the two most popular ways of interpreting…

    “How Your Constitutional Rights Became Unenforceable” – 2018 McCormick Lecture – Erwin Chemerinsky

    PRESENTER: Welcome. It’s wonderful to see so many friends and supporters and colleagues here at tonight’s [INAUDIBLE].. I have a brief and welcome job, but a difficult one, because it is very hard to introduce a close friend. At least it’s hard for me, because I want to do my friend– and you will excuse me– justice. I want to tell you everything about his career as a reformer, teacher, scholar, a leader so prominent that just last year, he was named the most influential person in legal education, which not a single person in legal education needed the poll to know. I want you to know what I know.…

    How Will Richard Nixon Be Remembered?

    This thing work today? Yes. Good. I’m glad. Sandy, on many occasions can ‘t get the sound system right. I’m glad that he’s got it right today. Let me welcome you to the Sixth Nixon Legacy Panel. We are happy today that C-Span is covering this event and we welcome them. Clare Booth Luce told President Nixon that in a thousand years they will say Nixon went to China. We all know that Watergate is a part of our history, but there was much, so much more. Not just a great foreign policy agenda, but a lesser-known domestic agenda. I think you’ll be pleased to hear the panelists today talk…
