Vascular Plants = Winning! - Crash Course Biology #37

Hank introduces us to one of the most diverse and important families in the tree of life - the vascular plants. These plants have found tremendous success and the their secret is also their defining trait: conductive tissues that can take food and water from one part of a plant to another part. Though it sounds simple, the ability to move nutrients and water from one part of an organism to another was a evolutionary breakthrough for vascular plants, allowing them to grow exponentially larger, store food for lean times, and develop features that allowed them to spread farther and faster. Plants dominated the earth long before animals even showed up, and even today hold the world records for the largest, most massive, and oldest organisms on the planet.

Ecosystem Ecology: Links in the Chain - Crash Course Ecology #7

Hank brings us to the next level of ecological study with ecosystem ecology, which looks at how energy, nutrients, and materials are getting shuffled around within an ecosystem (a collection of living and nonliving things interacting in a specific place), and which basically comes down to who is eating who.

10 Most Powerful Superheroes From Marvel and DC

One of the most well-known characters in comic book history, Superman is also one of the oldest. Created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster, Superman first appeared in Action Comics number 1 – all the way back in June of 1938, setting the stage for countless superheroes that followed in the next seventy-eight years (and counting). While certain elements of Superman’s backstory and powers remain the same nearly eight decades later, different writers and artists also brought with them changes to the hero’s mythology. Some carried forward, adding to Superman canon, while others were set aside and abandoned when they were no longer needed.

While there is not one “official” Superman, though fans will likely have their favorites, DC Comics has attempted to refine the Man of Steel over the years – delving deeper and deeper into why the Kryptonian hero can do the various “super” things he does. Superman’s powers are no secret but how, exactly, science (albeit science fiction) contributes to Kal-El’s super-human abilities is less well-known. This might be review for the biggest Superman lovers (footage of Jerry Seinfeld) but, for fans who want to know more about the Big Blue Boy Scout, we’re digging into the god-like biology of Earth’s iconic Kryptonian for our latest docu series video: the real science behind Superman’s coolest powers.

Jupiter: Crash Course Astronomy #16

Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system. The gas giant is NOT a failed star, but a really successful planet! It has a dynamic atmosphere with belts and zones, as well as an enormous red spot that’s actually a persistent hurricane. Jupiter is still warm from its formation, and has an interior that’s mostly metallic hydrogen, and it may not even have a core.

2017 Maps of Meaning 8: Neuropsychology of Symbolic Representation

In this lecture, I discuss the relationship between the basic categories of imagistic/symbolic representation and brain function, noting that the very hemispheres of the brain are adapted, right/left to the environmental or experiential permanence of chaos/order or unexplored/explored territory, with consciousness serving the Logos role of communicative explorer (a function related in one of its deepest manifestations to the function of the hypothalamically grounded dopaminergic systems).

27. Global Warming

The Atmosphere, the Ocean and Environmental Change (GG 140)

The issue of global warming is discussed. Recent climate change over the last half of the 20th century is thought to be driven largely by greenhouse gas emissions, with carbon dioxide playing a large role. The carbon cycle describes the reservoirs of carbon (atmosphere, terrestrial biomass and ocean) and the exchanges that occur between these reservoirs. Inputs of carbon to the atmosphere include burning of fossil fuels and respiration from biomass. Vegetation also removes carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis, and a similar uptake of carbon from the atmosphere occurs in the ocean through biological processes. Residence time for carbon in the atmosphere can be computed and is estimated to be a few hundred years. Atmospheric carbon dioxide has been measured directly since the 1950s, and longer records exist over geologic time from ice core data.

In this video Jerry discusses the importance of direct communication with higher frequency beings/angels/extra-terrestrials and why its important to question and use discernment. We are in a spiritual war, a cosmic battle and its important that you do not choose a side. Whether its light or dark its still a side that in turn increases and elevates the illusion of duality. We stand in our own truth and raise our own personal vibration and rise above the mystery of the game we have been born into. Unconditional love and compassion will lead to global transformation.

You deserve to give your self the time and space to kick back and experience this inspirational video. Team work is the key to a free and harmonious reality. We are ONE!

Sahara Desert- APES Biome Project

2017 Maps of Meaning 6: Story and Metastory (Part 2)

In this lecture, I discuss uncertainty, or anomaly. We frame the world -- or the world reveals itself to us -- as a story, with a starting point, a destination, and the behavioral means to move from one to the other. The destination is valued more highly than the starting point, and constitutes the point of the story -- the aim of the individual. Reality manifests itself within that story as what is relevant for forward movement, what gets in the way, and what is irrelevant and can be safely ignored. The largest category, by far, is the latter. Unfortunately, sometimes what has been happily classified as irrelevant rears up and gets in the way. That's a manifestation of chaos. Chaos can undermine the story, or break the frame. The degree of undermining or breakage is proportional to the time and space over which the story in question extends its operations.
