The Poisoner's Handbook
PBS
In the early 20th century, the average American medicine cabinet was a would-be poisoner's treasure chest, with radioactive radium, thallium, and morphine in everyday products. The pace of industrial innovation increased, but the scientific knowledge to detect and prevent crimes…
An Odyssey of Ignorance & Greed
Episode 1 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
The Opioid Epidemic is the worst man-made epidemic in the history of our nation. More people die each year from an opioid overdose than in automobile accidents. The statistics are staggering. This episode traces how an aggressive pharmaceutical mass marketing…
Chemical Energy, Biomass, and Photosynthesis
Episode 5 of The Science of Energy
Turn now to chemical energy, the potential energy resulting from the position of atoms within molecules. After an overview of photosynthesis (perhaps the universe's most amazing form of energy conversion), learn how combustion transforms biofuels into light and heat, and…
Dirty Pictures
Alexander 'Sasha' Shulgin is the scientist behind more than 200 psychedelic compounds including MDMA, more commonly known as Esctasy. Considered to be one of the the greatest chemists of the twentieth century, Sasha's vast array of discoveries have had a…
Ground Zero
Episode 2 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
Rural America was among the earliest and hardest hit by prescription opioid addiction and overdose deaths. The stories in this episode center primarily in Kentucky, the ground zero of the epidemic. Whole communities have been devastated. Some schools don't hold…
Out from the Shadows - The Story of Irene Joliot-Curie and Frederic Joliot Curie
Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2009 Paris Science Film Festival in France. Using newsreels, family home movies and stills, stock footage, dramatization and interviews, this biography relates the life and times of Irene Joliot-Curie and her husband,…
Energy and Human Civilization
Episode 1 of The Science of Energy
How much energy is required to power human civilization? What is it that makes our cities, factories, homes, and cars so energy inefficient? How can the average individual affect energy directions? Find out in this overview of how energy touches…
Rocky Road to Recovery
Episode 3 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
This episode shines a light on the plight of the millions of Americans who suffer from opioid addiction. Nearly everyone knows someone or has a family member who is addicted or died from an opioid overdose. On this episode we…
Introduction and Philosophy
Episode 1 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition Course
In this first lecture, Professor Cardulla explains how any student can find success in chemistry by cultivating a meaningful understanding of the concepts and quantitative thinking operations that underlie this often challenging area of study.
The Structure of Atoms and Molecules
Episode 4 of The Nature of Matter
Understand atomic and molecular structure with the help of a simple analogy: the rooms of a house and the collection of houses in a city. See how the electrons of an atom occupy shells, subshells, and orbitals, which give atoms…
Matter, Energy, and Entropy
Episode 1 of The Nature of Matter
Starting with a deck of cards tossed into the air, explore the key concepts of matter, energy, and entropy, which are the building blocks of the physical universe. Study examples of these phenomena, and see how they are demonstrated by…
The Path to Nuclear Fission - The Story of Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn
The story of two close friends who discovered nuclear fission is told in great detail within the context of both World Wars. This video is as much about role of scientists in political events, social responsibility, and discrimination against women…
Energy - Forms and Conversion for Use
Episode 2 of The Science of Energy
Energy is a fundamental part of our universe--in a sense, the universe is energy. Here, Professor Wysession introduces you to the many fascinating forms energy takes, including potential, kinetic, mechanical, and thermal energy. He also explains how energy is measured…
Basic Concepts of Quantitative Reasoning
Episode 2 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition Course
Introductory chemistry is not mysterious: It requires simple quantitative reasoning that comes naturally to most students. You learn about the types of numbers involved in chemistry and how to solve problems commonly encountered in high school chemistry.
Heat - The Transfer and Flow of Energy
Episode 3 of The Science of Energy
One of the first forms of energy that humans learned to use is heat. You'll examine three ways heat flows (radiation, convection, conduction); make sense of the heat flow equation and the concept of entropy; and go inside the inner…
The Amazing Periodic Table
Episode 6 of The Nature of Matter
Investigate an astonishingly powerful scientific tool: the periodic table of the elements. Delve into the insights that led Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev to construct the first modern version of the table in the 1860s, and explore the world of information…
Resistance Is Useful: Semiconductors
Episode 22 of The Nature of Matter
How does a tiny piece of impure silicon launch an electronics revolution? Follow the development of semiconductors from the invention of the transistor in the 1940s to ever-smaller circuits that are now measured in nanometers. Along the way, discover how…
Electricity - Ultimate Energy Converter
Episode 4 of The Science of Energy
Discover what makes electricity such an attractive vehicle for energy. Learn how electricity can come from oil, coal, solar, and other forces, and how electricity travels through wires with the help of voltage. Also, examine recent advances that make it…
Out of Many, One: Composites
Episode 23 of The Nature of Matter
When different materials combine to create something very unlike its individual components, you have a composite. Learn what gives composites superior properties. Explore a wide range of examples, including concrete, carbon fiber, fiberglass, Kevlar, automobile tires, carbon nanotubes, and aerogel.
National Prescription Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit - Andrew Kolodny Seminar
Episode 4 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
A video of Dr. Andrew Kolodny, Executive Director of PROP (Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing)/Co-Director of Opioid Policy Research at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University) speaking at the 2017 National Prescription Drug Abuse &…
