Savannah's Rising Seas
This map shows the areas in and around Savannah, GA that would be inundated by a flood three feet higher than a large local high tide. It therefore serves as a crude indicator of lands vulnerable to a 3-foot sea level rise, without considering factors like shifting currents, sediment deposits, or salt marshes that may complicate the exact location of the future shoreline. The map also leaves out the full extent of vulnerable land because it does not include updated flood risk areas from storms on top of sea level rise. Most current research projects a global average sea level increase between two and five feet by 2100. According to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) Coastal Services Center, "uring coastal floods today when water reaches a level 1.5 feet below the level depicted on this map. Water level on the map is 11.5 feet above "mean lower low water" (MLLW) at Fort Pulaski, GA. (MLLW is a standard reference measure for low tide.) The highest Fort Pulaski tide most months is between 8.5 and 8.7 feet above MLLW, and the NOAA warning just above corresponds to 10 feet above MLLW — still referenced to the Fort Pulaski tidal gauge. NOAA's Coastal Services Center developed the flood layer shown here based on a 6-inch vertical resolution elevation map of the Savannah area, produced by laser fly-over measurements conducted for the Chatham Emergency Management Agency. A NOAA Coastal Services Center website provides a Coastal Innundation Toolkit provides additional information on flood and storm surge scenarios (including for Chatham County, GA). The shallow coastal flooding scenarios factor in only sea level and land elevation — a method also commonly used to illustrate areas vulnerable to long-term sea level rise.1 Background imagery for this map comes via Google Earth. Inundation has not been modeled or represented in the very upper right and lower left hand corners. The water in these corners reflects tide at an unknown stage.

3. Technology and Revolution in Roman Architecture
Roman Architecture (HSAR 252) Professor Kleiner discusses the revolution in Roman architecture resulting from the widespread adoption of concrete in the late second and first centuries B.C. She contrasts what she calls innovative Roman architecture with the more traditional buildings already surveyed and documents a shift from the use of concrete for practical purposes to an exploration of its expressive possibilities. The lecture concludes with a discussion of the Sanctuary of Fortuna Primigenia at Palestrina, an impressive terraced complex that uses concrete to transform a mountain into a work of architecture, with ramps and stairs leading from one level to the next and porticoes revealing panoramic views of nature and of man-made architectural forms. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

В.Путин.Вступительное слово на совещании.24.07.08.Part 2
Vladimir Putin conducted a meeting on measures to develop ferrous metallurgy and provide metal products for the domestic market.Part 2 24 July 2008 Совещание по вопросу "О мерах по развитию черной металлургии и обеспечению металлопродукцией внутреннего рынка". 24.07.2008 We have just visited one enterprise, the Vyksa Metallurgical Plant. They have signed long-term contracts with RZD. As Mr Sedykh (chairman of the Vyksa Metallurgical Plant board of directors) has said, they are pleased because they are now assured of a market for several years ahead. It enables them to work at a steady pace, to develop production and to invest. Of course such long-term contracts, such approach should be practiced throughout the supply chain: from raw materials to the end product. We must seek to have such long-term contracts play the leading role in the market. At the same time we should develop exchange trade, above all trade in iron ore. We should get rid of unnecessary middlemen. At present the share of middlemen varies between 25% and 45% for certain types of products. To cut production costs I think we can consider establishing "zero" import custom duties on iron ore and also some types of rolled steel of which we do not produce enough domestically. I would like to dwell on the problem of ferrous metal scrap. I don't think an effective and comprehensive solution has been found. In fact, no solution has been proposed. That applies, by the way, to non-ferrous metals as well. The crime world still has a powerful influence in this sphere. All sorts of "grey" tax-dodging schemes - "fly-by-night" firms are widely used in the export of metal scrap. Today practically all the developed countries consider scrap to be a strategic commodity and closely monitor its market. Unless we come to grips with that problem we may face a shortage of this valuable raw material. By the way, we have repeatedly discussed that problem. Now the people with whom we discussed it are "either gone or far away". That was eight or ten years ago. Nothing has changed. The constant excuses that we are in the process of joining the WTO and have assumed some kind of obligations do not hold water. Especially since we want to join the WTO and will seek to join it, yet anyway we must ensure our own interests. I urge you to examine the whole range of issues connected with clearing that sphere of criminals and to come forward with proposals on creating monitoring mechanisms, adjusting the rates of export duties and taxes in this sphere. Let us make up our minds whether we will continue to stimulate the export of these raw materials or keep them in our domestic market. Perhaps we can find a final solution by raising the customs duties, as we are doing with regard to timber. After all, we are doing it with regard to timber, and it works. I am aware that our metallurgists have suggested that the government can buy all the ferrous metal scrap in the domestic market, including for building up buffer stocks for the future. I think there is a good case for this approach. The situation with metal coke calls for a detailed analysis. Our consumers experience a shortage of coking coal. Yet this coal is exported abroad. Meanwhile the Russian steel companies have to make up for the shortage by importing coal. In that sense the situation looks absurd. Further. We are still short of special steels and alloys. Such production can be organised, among other things, on the basis of private-public partnership. It also has to do with removing infrastructure restrictions that hold back the development of the mining and metallurgical sector, above all in the new industrial areas. I believe it is necessary to implement a long-term strategy for the development of the metallurgical industry and tie it in with the plans for the power industry, engineering and transport infrastructure. We are currently discussing all these problems. Finally, scientific and technical policy in the sector calls for particular attention. The sector is modernising, but chiefly through the use of imported technologies and equipment. That is a normal and necessary stage. However, we should not forget about the prospects for the development of our own research and design base and heavy machine-building. We should devise effective and commercially viable schemes for the interaction of domestic companies and Russian research and design centres. Instances of this already exist, including the enterprise which I visited today, I have seen it. A good deal needs to be done to raise the level of environmental and energy effectiveness of production. There are some positive trends emerging. But the metallurgical complex as a whole is still the least environment-friendly. In short, I have reviewed all the problems of the industry. Let us look at them in more detail. http://www.government.ru

Team PMS - 3 Projects for DXMP
Coming Christmas 2010 Worth it. MatchMaps: MatchMaps is a collaboration between mappers under my creative guidance. Without spoiling too much it's basically a collection of 6 maps created for 0-Aug and Aug gameplay. * Mach: Mach is a reletively small map similar to the exterior of CMD set in a small but deep gorge/canyon. There's two interior buildings and the center of the map there's a bridge to cater between the 5 possible spawn locations. Which oddly enough looks like a plastic disposable shaving razor and that's where it got it's name. * Ton: Our only unoriginal product; we have made the Ton into a viable DXMP map and opened up all possible rooms. The lobby area will be a very hectic place! * Staircase: Inspired by a shitty dream I had about Mario 64, an experimental map which has players battling it out in heaven. Make sure you secure the gate's after the stairway in Augs as those turrets are deadly considering how vertical this map is. * Harm: Map full of hazards, enjoy a lot of water, poison, lava and huge falls. Not fun to play on 0-Aug but hilarious with Augs. * Smug: Re-literation of Smuggles, kinda symetric and not as silly. Remade from the ground up. The new skylight window is gorgeous and we've pushed the skybox to the maximum of our imagination to make it look amazing. * HouseAtlantic: My Smuggler esqe map. Based on Coheed and Cambria mythos. It's actually similar to Ton's lobby. Rocket Pro Game Back in 2008 Clix told me about his little experiments with rocket jumping in DXMP but I went on and decided to get people to make a mutator to allow this. * All explosive weapons revamped to scan for any enemy in the blast radius; if there isn't the blast will be reduced to a quater of the damage * The ability to jump on explosions to propel yourself into the air awkwardly similar to speed augging. * A spare mutator with the ability to jump on 2d meshes, this is basically just for fun and a product of DXMP_Heaven, enjoy jumping on gas and fire. ARX GENUS II * All 9 classes are intact with their visual greatness thanks to Tom Tallian! http://tomtallian.com/pages/tf2.html * Total conversion; you won't recognise it being DX at all except for the interface. * Unique playerclasses allow custom animations and variables to achieve effects such as class' speeds. Materialising a true Low Poly TF2 experience! * 2 maps! agcp_dustbowl and agdm_granary. agcp and agdm are able to be played without DXAG although not advised for balance. * Compatible with original all maps thanks to a interactive actor that spawns near playerspawn clusters to help you choose classes. * The ability to have mirrors which the Source engine cannot create! Classes Heavy: mini gun, shotgun, fists, ballistic protection augmentation Soldier: rocket launcher (not instant kill unless direct for weak classes), shotgun, shovel, energy shield augmentation. Demoman: pipe launcher, sticky launcher, bottle, environmental resistance augmentation Spy: revolver, knife, cloak augmentation, run silently augmentation Medic: medigun, ubersaw, regeneration augmentation, emp shield augmentation, power reticulator augmentation Scout: scattergun, pistol, pistol bat Pyro: flamethrower, shotgun, axe vision enhancement augmentation Sniper: Sniper rifle, SMG, kukri Engineer: Pistol, PDA with ability to spawn dispensers, sentry guns (level 2 max) and teleporters, spydrone augmentation Civilian [unused]: Umbrella Alex: WORTH IT EH?

Geyser Animation
A cartoon animation of a geyser, showing how it erupts, as well as what happens out of sight, underground. Not much is known about the details of the plumbing systems, so this is only a symbolic representation. But it does address some of the common misconceptions (including the fact that the geyser is not heated directly by "lava", but by hot deep groundwater), and shows a little of what goes on in detail (rising steam bubbles and convection warming the entire water column until it is near boiling throughout). Yes, I need to do a much better, detailed one, with a running clock, a moving P-T diagram & temperature profile, etc. Maybe someday, but for now, here's a rough approximation. For more information (including one way to build a working model), visit my university webpage: http://mypage.iusb.edu/~brdavis/ Special thanks to the men & women of GOSA, who observe geysers as a passion of the heart, and share both that passion and understanding with the world. Credit for the entire idea is due to my 8-year-old daughter Ellie, who wanted Daddy to build her a working geyser. Thank you, Ellie - we did it! -- Brian Davis

UK Met Office - Projection of Temperature Rise to 2100
Latest results from the Met Office's climate change research. The data are based on a mid-range IPCC emissions scenario A1B. Source: http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climatechange/science/projections/ It is important to be aware that projections from climate models are always subject to uncertainty because of limitations on our knowledge of how the climate system works and on the computing resources available. Different climate models can give different projections. More on using computer models (external page) The projections are also based on emissions scenarios, such as the level of CO2 emissions increasing or decreasing. Many different scenarios are used, based on estimates of economic and social growth, and this is one of the major sources of uncertainty in climate prediction. But even if greenhouse gas emissions are substantially reduced, the long lifespan of CO2 in the atmosphere means that we cannot avoid further climate change due to CO2 already in the atmosphere. Despite the uncertainties, all models show that the Earth will warm in the next century, with a consistent geographical pattern.

Vietnam's Biodiversity part (1/2)
The Socialist Republic of Vietnam finds itself at a critical juncture in current efforts to survey and identify its rich floral and faunal resources, and to conserve them for coming generations. Stretching more than 1,650 kilometers north to south along Tonkin Bay and the South China Sea, Vietnam encompasses three major biogeographic zones, four Endemic Bird Areas (EBAs), and a wide variety of unique habitats. Because of its size, location, and the historical interaction of complex topographic, climatic and ecological factors, the country has high levels of both species diversity and endemism. Vietnam is currently recognized as having a significant proportion of rare and endemic species from both regional and global conservation perspectives. Vietnam's people and natural resources face many of the same pressures and threats as other developing countries at the start of the 21st Century. A growing population of almost 80 million people, the flowering of an open market economy, and accompanying increases in deforestation rates and the wildlife trade threaten the preservation of Vietnam's unique biodiversity. Today, many of Vietnam's native plants and animals are threatened or endangered by these combined pressures: the 2000 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species ranking of countries with the largest number of threatened species placed Vietnam 6th, 15th and 18th for reptiles, mammals and birds, respectively. Vietnam is strongly committed to the conservation of its biodiversity and natural resources in the face of these various challenges. This commitment includes: •The maintenance and continued development of a widespread protected area network of National Parks, Nature Reserves, and Cultural and Historical Sites. •Training a cadre of dedicated biologists to record and study Vietnam's biodiversity. •Gathering and maintaining basic collections of plants and animals for training and research. •Long-term institutional commitment to collaboration with foreign scientific and conservation organizations. Despite increasing national and international attention, both Vietnamese species diversity and conservation efforts rest in a precarious place. Much of Vietnam's rich and unique biological diversity is only now being explored. In the past decade new genera of mammals have been discovered in Vietnam and Lao PDR, and several new species of rodents and birds are currently being described. The extent to which both known and unidentified biodiversity is conserved by the current protected areas network is insufficient: only 4% of Vietnam's total land area is currently protected. Detailed information about the distribution of biodiversity and endemism in Vietnam is needed for making realistic decisions on existing protected area boundaries and the design and placement of new protected areas. Continued research into Vietnamese biodiversity and recommendations for additional conserved areas are urgently needed. Project Objectives The Center for Biodiversity and Conservation at the American Museum of Natural History (CBC-AMNH) and the Missouri Botanical Gardens (MBG) have joined with the Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources (IEBR) and the Vietnam National University (VNNU) in Hanoi in a multi-year collaborative research, education and training effort to measure the extent and distribution of Vietnamese species diversity and to identify conservation priorities and potential new protected areas. The principle objective of the project is to develop a core of knowledge and expertise in biodiversity and conservation necessary to protect and manage Vietnam's most important and highly endangered ecosystems. To this end the CBC and its North American and Vietnamese collaborators conducted extensive multiple-taxa biotic inventory surveys in three different biogeographic regions of Vietnam. These areas and the specific study localities within them were chosen because they were historically under-surveyed, potentially of high biodiversity and conservation value, and represented ecosystems either not currently part of the protected areas network or inadequately represented within it. In addition to research aimed at measuring Vietnamese biodiversity and endemism, we are concentrating our efforts on education and conservation initiatives increasing the capacity of scientific research facilities, and making a commitment to training students in both Vietnam and North America in evolutionary biology, conservation biology and systematics.

Homemade Humidifier For When Your House/Air Is Dry - Important: Read Side Notes Also
THE EASIEST WAY IS TO DAMPEN AND HANG A LARGE SOFT COTTON BATH TOWEL UP since it has a large surface area to put some moisture/humidity into the air, but you will have to re-dampen it when needed and that only takes a minute or two. Some basic ways to make a homemade humidifier for dry areas/climate (such as when it is very dry in the winter seaon in the northern hemisphere of earth). I did a quick test for several hours and it seems that with the cloth wick, that several (I measured 10 here) times more water/moisture is evaporated into the air....so it would be equivalent to many identical bowls or containers. I found this very old one from 1918 after I made mine: http://tinyurl.com/azjcmb It's not difficult to image the humidfier concept going way back several thousands of years though. Another humidifier option is to get a fountain(s). The more suface area of water the better, some even make soothing sounds. You can also get an electric humidifier. Important: 1. You don't want the humidity levels too high in your house. Perhaps 50% only. Use A Humidity Meter. To much humidity can make breathing difficult, and it will promote the growth of micro-organisms such as bacteria and fungus. So your humidifier has to be cleaned regularly, perhaps daily to every two or three days. With this homemade system, probably best to clean the cloth with vinegar, bleach or water and set it aside or wash in the laundry, and use a clean dry cloth in your humidifier. 2. Clean Your Humidifier (And Cloth). Typical cleaners are hydrogen peroxide or some bleach.

Principles of Evolution, Ecology and Behavior (EEB 122) Development is responsible for the complexity of multicellular organisms. It helps to map the genotype into the phenotype expressed by the organism. Development is responsible for ancient patterns among related organisms, and many structures important to development shared by many life forms have changed little over hundreds of millions of years. Development is expressed combinatorially, allowing a relatively small amount of genetic information to be expressed in many different ways. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction 03:17 - Chapter 2.

hot movie clip intense heat waves global warming and climate change
The effects of climate change observed to date and projected to occur in the future - including but not limited to the increased likelihood of more frequent and intense heat waves, more wildfires, degraded air quality, more heavy down pours and flooding, increased drought, greater sea level rise, more intense storms, harm to water resources, harm to agriculture, and harm to wildlife and ecosystems - are effects on public health and welfare. Over the last hundred years or so, the instrumental temperature record has shown a trend in climate of increased global mean temperature, i.e., global warming. Other observed changes include Arctic shrinkage, Arctic methane release, releases of terrestrial carbon from permafrost regions and Arctic methane release in coastal sediments, and sea level rise. The probability of warming having unforeseen consequences increases with the rate, magnitude, and duration of climate change.[7] Some of the physical impacts of climate change are irreversible at continental and global scales.[8] Sea level is expected to rise 18 to 59 cm (7.1 to 23.2 inches) by the end of the 21st century. Due to a lack of scientific understanding, this sea level rise estimate does not include all of the possible contributions of ice sheets.[3] Slowing of the Meridional Overturning Circulation is very likely to occur this century, but temperatures in the Atlantic and Europe will probably still be higher due to global warming.[4] For a global warming of 1-4°C (relative to 1990-2000), there is a moderate chance that partial deglaciation of the Greenland ice sheet would occur over a period of centuries to millennia. Including the possible contribution of partial deglaciation of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, sea level would rise by 46 m or more. Several recent studies have drawn a link between sex, climate change and environmental pollution. Here's a round-up of these and a few more.

14. The Mother of All Forums: Civic Architecture in Rome under Trajan
Roman Architecture (HSAR 252) Professor Kleiner analyzes the major public architectural commissions of the emperor Trajan in Rome. Distinguished by their remarkably ambitious scale, these buildings mimic Trajan's expansion of the Roman Empire to its furthest reaches. Professor Kleiner begins with Trajan's restoration of the Forum of Julius Caesar and proceeds to the Baths of Trajan. Situated on the Oppian and Esquiline Hills, these Trajanic baths follow the basic model of the earlier imperial Baths of Titus but increase the size of the complex several times. Most of the lecture focuses on the famous Forum and Markets of Trajan, built on land that the engineer and architect Apollodorus of Damascus created by cutting away part of the Quirinal Hill. The Forum of Trajan consists of a large open rectangular area, a basilica, Greek and Latin libraries, and a temple dedicated to Trajan after his death. Between the libraries stands the celebrated Column of Trajan with a spiral frieze commemorating the emperor's military victories in Dacia (modern Romania) and reaching a height of 125 feet. The brick-faced concrete Markets of Trajan climb up the hill and form a dramatic contrast to the marble forum. The lecture concludes with a brief discussion of the Arch of Trajan at Benevento, which depicts scenes of the emperor's greatest accomplishments and the first representations of his successor, Hadrian. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

15. Rome and a Villa: Hadrian's Pantheon and Tivoli Retreat
Roman Architecture (HSAR 252) Professor Kleiner features the architecture built in and around Rome during the reign of Hadrian. The lecture begins with the Temple of Venus and Roma, a Greek-style temple constructed near the Colosseum in Rome, which may have been designed by Hadrian himself. Professor Kleiner then turns to the Pantheon, a temple dedicated to all the gods that combines the marble porch and pediment of a traditional Greco-Roman temple with a vast concrete cylindrical drum, hemispherical dome, and central oculus. The porch serves to conceal the circular shape from view, but upon entering the structure the visitor is impressed by the massive interior space and theatrical play of light. The Pantheon represents the culmination of the Roman quest towards an architecture that shapes and dramatizes interior space. Professor Kleiner next discusses the Villa of Hadrian at Tivoli, a sprawling complex in which the emperor re-created buildings and works of art he observed during his empire-wide travels. The lecture concludes with a brief overview of the Mausoleum of Hadrian (the Castel Sant'Angelo), a round tomb that refers back to the Mausoleum of Augustus and served as the last resting place for Hadrian and the succeeding Antonine dynasty. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

6. Seeing Bonds by Electron Difference Density
Freshman Organic Chemistry (CHEM 125) Professor McBride uses a hexagonal "benzene" pattern and Franklin's X-ray pattern of DNA, to continue his discussion of X-ray crystallography by explaining how a diffraction pattern in "reciprocal space" relates to the distribution of electrons in molecules and to the repetition of molecules in a crystal lattice. He then uses electron difference density mapping to reveal bonds, and unshared electron pairs, and their shape, and to show that they are only one-twentieth as dense as would be expected for Lewis shared pairs. Anomalous difference density in the carbon-fluorine bond raises the course's second great question, "Compared to what?" 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Regional Earth System Prediction: Microbes to Man
Google Tech Talk September 18, 2009 ABSTRACT Presented by Professor Raghu Murtugudde, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center University of Maryland, College Park. While the IPCC will continue to lead Earth System projections for global issues such as greenhouse gas levels and global temperature increase, high-resolution regional Earth System predictions will be crucial for producing effective decision-making tools for day- to-day, sustainable Earth System management and adaptive management of resources. Regional Earth System predictions and projections at the order of a few meters resolution from days to decades must be validated and provide uncertainties and skill scores to be usable. While the task is daunting, it would be criminally negligent of the global human not to embark on this task immediately. The observational needs for the integrated natural-human system for the regional Earth System are distinct from the global needs even though there are many overlaps. Regional Earth System monitoring and predictions thus will continuously take the pulse of the planet to prescribe appropriate actions for participatory decision-making for sustainable and adaptive management of the Earth System and to avoid catastrophic domains of potential outcomes. The model predictions must produce predictive, pre-emptive, personalized environmental information for human health, agro-economics, fisheries, water, energy, harmful algal blooms, and any other information demanded by lay people to resource managers to policy-makers. Technological innovations will have to meet the scientific demand to produce instruments from molecular probes to exploit the ever evolving genetic-level understanding, to nano-technology for in situ monitoring of the environment in open and confined spaces, to satellites that monitor the Earth System at ever increasing details to capture the natural-human system interactions and their feedbacks to the Earth System. The ultimate deliverable is a fully integrated decision-making tool that allows all users to carry out what-if scenarios to scope the range of options they have to work with. Prof. Murtugudde's research has focused on the ocean's role in climate, from intraseasonal to decadal time-scales including the impacts of climate on fisheries, agriculture, water resources, carbon cycle, and air-sea interaction processes of scale selection. He has conducted rainwater harvesting in urban areas and watershed management in rural areas using the agroforestry technique as a sustainable method for rural development. His most recent research has focused on Earth System Prediction for air and water quality, human health, agriculture, water and energy resources, fisheries, and future projections for decision makers, policy wonks, and educational institutions. The Chesapeake Bay Forecast Project that he has led is the first such Earth System Prediction model to issue routine forecasts of useful environmental package. This is one of the few projects that will combine expertise from climate scientists, bioinformatic experts, computer scientists, geographers, architects, public health and epidemiology experts, public policy and health information researchers, agro-economists, social scientists, and biologists providing a campus-wide connection at UMD. Eventually, this research to operations transition will develop an academia-private-military-government partnership that will be seamless and essential.

Bill Nye The Science Guy on Ocean Currents (oceanography (Full Clip)
Currents keep the ocean moving. They start with spin of the Earth and the heat of the Sun. The salt in seawater makes the density, water's weight, change. That helps push water from one side of the world to the other. Without motion in the ocean, there wouldn't be nearly as many different things living in the sea. There would probably be none of us. Currents out in the Ocean make our world the way it.

16. The Social Permeability of Reader and Text
Introduction to Theory of Literature (ENGL 300) In this first lecture on the theory of literature in social contexts, Professor Paul Fry examines the work of Mikhail Bakhtin and Hans Robert Jauss. The relation of their writing to formalist theory and the work of Barthes and Foucault is articulated. The dimensions of Bakhtin's heteroglossia, along with the idea of common language, are explored in detail through a close reading of the first sentence of Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. Jauss's study of the history of reception is explicated with reference to Borges' "Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote" and the Broadway revival of Damn Yankees. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

And that space contains lots of things. And these things have shapes. In geometry we are concerned with the nature of these shapes, how we define them, and what they teach us about the world at large--from math to architecture to biology to astronomy (and everything in between). Learning geometry is about more than just taking your medicine ("It's good for you!"), it's at the core of everything that exists--including you. Having said all that, some of the specific topics we'll cover include angles, intersecting lines, right triangles, perimeter, area, volume, circles, triangles, quadrilaterals, analytic geometry, and geometric constructions. Wow. That's a lot. To summarize: it's difficult to imagine any area of math that is more widely used than geometry. About Khan Academy: Khan Academy is a nonprofit with a mission to provide a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere.
