Every kid needs a champion | Rita Pierson

Rita Pierson, a teacher for 40 years, once heard a colleague say, “They don’t pay me to like the kids.” Her response: “Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like.'” A rousing call to educators to believe in their students and actually connect with them on a real, human, personal level.

41 Undomestic, Domesticated Animals – mental_floss on YouTube (Ep.8)

A weekly show hosted by John Green, where knowledge junkies get their fix of trivia-tastic information. This week, John looks at a number of rather odd pet choices including a tiger, zebra, and chinchilla. By the way, we don’t endorse ownership of any of these…except perhaps the sugar glider (they’re so cute!).

Why Can’t We Remember Being Babies?

Why can’t we recall being born? It was kind of a big day, so you’d think we’d remember. Anthony looks at how the inner workings of a baby’s brain differs from that of a full grown adult.

When Do Babies Become Conscious?
http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2013/04/baby-consciousness/
“For everyone who’s looked into an infant’s sparkling eyes and wondered what goes on in its little fuzzy head, there’s now an answer.”

Babies Have Consciousness, Study Finds
http://www.livescience.com/28848-babies-have-consciousness.html
“Infants have a conscious experience of the world at as early as 5 months of age, new research finds.”

Why Don’t We Remember Being Babies?
http://www.lifeslittlemysteries.com/1026-why-dont-we-remember-being-babies.html
“Virtually nobody has memories from very early childhood — but it’s not because we don’t retain information as young children.”

Can a person remember being born?
http://science.howstuffworks.com/life/remember-birth.htm
“Psychologists refer to this inability of most adults to remember events from early life, including their birth, as childhood amnesia.”

Why Can’t You Remember Being a Baby?
http://mentalfloss.com/article/12330/why-cant-you-remember-being-baby
“There are probably blackout periods you can’t remember at all from your childhood, and the memories you do have are likely hazy and garbled.”

New Fusion Engine Gets to Mars in 30 Days

The speed of space travel is about to make a huge leap forward–cutting a trip to Mars from an agonizing eight months to as little as 30 days! This is all thanks to a revolutionary nuclear fusion engine being tested right now. In this DNews video, Trace explains how it works and the impact it’ll have.

Mystery of Prince Rupert’s Drop at 130,000 fps – Smarter Every Day 86

“Goggle Up! Science is about to happen…Share by Tweet: http://bit.ly/YAsk8M Facebook: http://bit.ly/PrinceRupert
READ THE ADDITIONAL INFO HERE! (Click “Show More”!)
Please help me justify putting this much time and effort into a video by clicking “LIKE” and SHARING this as much as possible. Click the following: Tweet: http://bit.ly/TweetRupert Facebook: http://bit.ly/PrinceRupert Please share with any science blogs or outlets you think would enjoy it.

Videos like this don’t just happen. They require lots of time, and lots of favors from very smart and kind people willing to help me and you learn. PLEASE take a moment and read the following information and support those who supported me.

This is the camera we used for the ultra-high speed shots. It has the “FAST” option.
http://www.visionresearch.com/v16102/

You absolutely have to check out the stuff Cal Makes. We’re just goofing off in this video, but the guy is some type of glass wizard genius. It would make me happy if you bought something from him and he felt like the audience appreciated all the time he donated to this video. He basically gave me 2 entire nights of his entire shop.

Orbix


I feel like we’re friends at this point, and he is open to the idea of doing more videos in the future and teach me more about what he knows about glass. Let’s make it worth his time.

I’m a HUGE FAN of the song Gordon wrote for this video. His landlord would really appreciated if you downloaded it so he could make rent this month.
http://ashellinthepit.bandcamp.com/track/manta
It looks like he’s assembling a new album that I may like more than Mammals:
http://ashellinthepit.bandcamp.com/album/hydrophile-in-progress
Show him some love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This video involved about 2 months of research, and me reaching out to several individuals. I would like to thank everyone who took time out of their schedule to contribute to my wacky research. A big thanks to the following people:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My wife and kids. I’m sorry this took so long and I wasn’t the kind of active father I want to be during the 5 weeks it took to make this.

Dr. Martyn Poliakoff for getting me access to documents which details experiments on the Prince Rupert’s Drop by the Royal Society
http://rsnr.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/41/1/1.full.pdf+html (behind a pay wall)

Being able to calculate the failure front velocity of a Prince Rupert’s drop is a pretty big deal. For years this was a scientific mystery. High speed camera technology is only recently fast enough to provide data like this. Thanks to Vision Research for letting me use the V1610 to try to unravel this mystery for the public in general.

Rob Kuefner for reaching out to me and offering to convert certain equations into LaTeX format for me.

Dr. Jeff Evans from UAH. A friend and neighbor who just happens to have a PhD and be an expert in fracture mechanics. http://bit.ly/YLezDA Thank you for helping me by pointing me in the right direction in the early stages of my research. It’s time we hangout again.

Brian: thanks for letting me use your green screen and telling me about Orbix in the first place. I stayed up there til about 1 or 2 am two nights in a row acting stupid in front of of the camera all alone. Now that I look back at that footage without the context of this video, it’s all very strange.

Thanks to Loïc Samuel for taking time to make the custom TNT Degradation graphic!

P.S. There was some old guy walking around the track at the park when I was filming me jumping on the bridge railing. I’m pretty sure you kept walking until I was done just to make sure you wouldn’t have to take me to the hospital if I broke my leg. I’ll never meet you again, but I’m grateful for this kind gesture you didn’t know I noticed.

Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle Explained

Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle tells us that it is impossible to simultaneously measure the position and momentum of a particle with infinite precision. In our everyday lives we virtually never come up against this limit, hence why it seems peculiar. In this experiment a laser is shone through a narrow slit onto a screen. As the slit is made narrower, the spot on the screen also becomes narrower. But at a certain point, the spot starts becoming wider. This is because the photons of light have been so localised at the slit that their horizontal momentum must become less well defined in order to satisfy Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.

I based this video on one by Prof. Walter Lewin of MIT: http://bit.ly/100Wk2K

Henry (MinutePhysics) has previously made a video about Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle where he treats it as less spooky and more a consequence of waves: http://bit.ly/TV3xO5

World’s First Electric Generator

Huge thanks to the Royal Institution, Professor Frank James, and Katie Atmore for filming.
For the Sixty Symbols version of this experiment click http://bit.ly/RGfLY5

Michael Faraday created the first electric generator in 1831 using a coil of wire and a permanent magnet. When the magnet was moved relative to the coil, current was induced in the coil. A similar experiment can be performed with a copper tube and a magnet. Although copper is not magnetic, it is a conductor. As the magnet falls through the pipe, the magnetic field changes over different sections of the pipe. This induces swirling currents (called eddy currents), which create a magetic field that opposes the motion of the magnet. This means work must be done to move the magnet through the pipe. This work generates the electrical energy, which is then dissipated as thermal energy in the pipe. The same basic principle is used to generate electricity throughout the world: moving a magnet inside copper coils.

How the oceans can clean themselves: Boyan Slat at TEDxDelft

18-year-old Boyan Slat combines environmentalism, entrepreneurism and technology to tackle global issues of sustainability. After diving in Greece, and coming across more plastic bags than fish, he wondered; “why can’t we clean this up?”

While still being on secondary school, he then decided to dedicate half a year of research to understand plastic pollution and the problems associated with cleaning it up.
This ultimately led to his passive clean-up concept, which he presented at TEDxDelft 2012.
Working to prove the feasibility of his concept, Boyan Slat currently gives lead to a team of approximately 50 people, and temporarily quit his Aerospace Engineering study to completely focus his efforts on The Ocean Cleanup.

The progress of The Ocean Cleanup can be followed through www.theoceancleanup.com, www.facebook.com/TheOceanCleanup, as well as www.twitter.com/TheOceanCleanup.

Levitating Barbecue! Electromagnetic Induction

At the Palais de la Decouverte in Paris, they showed me this experiment where a 1kg aluminium plate is levitated above a large coil of wire that is being supplied with 800A of alternating current at 900Hz. This is by far the best demonstration of electromagnetic induction I have ever seen.

Back in London, I visited the magnetic lab of Michael Faraday in the basement of the Royal Institution. It was here that he did his groundbreaking work on induction. People had previously observed that current in a wire causes a compass needle to deflect, but more exciting was the prospect of using a magnetic field to generate current. Faraday created his famous induction ring by winding two coils of insulated wire onto an iron ring. When he connected a battery to one coil, a small pulse of current was induced in the other. When the battery was disconnected, current was induced in the other direction. This led Faraday to the conclusion that current was induced in the second coil only when the magnetic field through it was changing.

And if they hadn’t been wrapped on the same ring, Faraday may have noticed that the two coils repel each other when the current is induced due to the interaction of their magnetic fields. This is the same thing that is happening with the aluminium plate, except we’re using alternating current to create a continually changing magnetic field. This induces an alternating current in the plate, producing an opposing magnetic field which levitates the disk.

What’s In A Candle Flame?

Is a flame really a plasma? Well it depends on your definition of plasma, but there are certainly ions in a flame, formed as molecules collide with each other at high speed, sometimes knocking electrons off of their atoms.

Special thanks to the Palais de la Decouverte for helping me perform this experiment. Using tens of thousands of volts on two metal plates, we created a strong electric field around the plasma. This pulled positive ions in one direction and negative ions in the other direction elongating the flame horizontally and causing it to flicker like a “papillon” (butterfly). Then we showed that much longer sparks can be made through the flame than through air since the ions increase the conductivity.
