    Law of Cosines

    BAM!!!, Mr. Tarrou. We just got done learning Law of Sines and now we are going to learn another law that allows you to work oblique triangles or non-right triangles. That is the Law of Cosine. Now we need both of these laws because you can’t always do Law of Sines and you can’t always do Law of Cosine. To be able to set up the law of sine, you need to have a matching pair of angle and side. When you have that paring like you know angle A and side a you can set up the law of sine. However, if you don’t have that then hopefully the…

    A Common Misconception about Newton’s Third Law Force Pairs (or Action-Reaction Pairs)

    mr.p: I would like to address a misconception about Newton’s Third Law Force Pairs. Bo: Hey guys. Billy: Hey Bo. Bobby: Hi Bo. ♫ flipping physics ♫ mr.p: Because this concept is an extension of my video introducing Newton’s Third Law and Third Law Force Pairs, I suggest you watch that video first by clicking on the link in the description, or the link right here that is embedded in this video. Now, I need a free-body diagram of all the forces acting on the book. Bo? Bo: The force normal is perpendicular to the table and a push, so it is up. And the force of gravity, as always,…

    Iowa Thinking: Paul Gowder on “The Rule of Law in the Real World”

    I’m Paul Gowder. I teach here at the University of Iowa College of Law, and I’ve just written a book about the rule of law. “The rule of law.” What is it? Why do we care? A bunch of rich and powerful countries, as well as entities like the World Bank and the United Nations, spend hundreds of millions of dollars promoting the rule of law. Politicians and judges routinely accuse one another of ignoring the rule of law. Law professors, like me, pour out gallons of ink on the rule of law. But what do we get out of it? What’s the payoff for all of this? Nobody’s really…

    Life As A Lawyer & Small Firms vs Big Firms | #TheLegalist EP08

    – Hi, I’m Lee Davis, attorney and owner of Lee Davis Law LLC in Atlanta, Georgia. Today I have a candid conversation with a friend of mine, Laura Brown, who works in the same office that I do about life in general as a lawyer, and what it’s like in a big firm versus a small firm. (happy music) When I was in law school, I thought I wanted to work in a big firm. And I did actually work in a big firm for a little while. Not as a lawyer, but as a research assistant. And I came to understand that I did not want to work in…

    How poverty affects creativity and innovation

    I have a background as a neuroscientist and the research has been very clear for many many years that poverty really does have a debilitating effect on brain development, especially when it is experienced in childhood. Just having that stress of poverty can really take up a lot of bandwidth in our brain and prevent us from engaging in the types of decision making that lead to creativity and innovation. My research suggests that we actually have to tackle poverty itself and then, you know, education can then play a role. So I think one way to tackle the problem is to enact policies that reduce those specific stresses of…

    Who do you want to be? – International Law and Human Rights (MA)

    My grandparents came from Estonia to Canada in the 1950s as refugees escaping Soviet occupation. It is their journey that’s inspired me to study human rights and that’s why in the future I would like to work in the field of human rights research or advocacy for an international body like the UN or the European Union. I’ve always known I should not stop on achieved and having the background in civil society matters led me here. I was an intern at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and will be working for an international organisation and writing my thesis at the same time. My plan after graduation is…

    ANTHRAX – I AM THE LAW (lyrics)

    LAW Fifteen years in the academy He was like no cadet they’d ever seen A man so hard his veins bleed ice When he speaks he never says it twice They call him Judge his last name is Dredd So break the law and you wind up dead Truth and justice are what he’s fighting for Judge Dredd the man he is the law Drokk it! With gun and bike he rules the streets Every perp he meets will taste defeat Not even Death will overcome his might Dredd and Anderson won the fight When the Sovs started the Apocalypse war Mega City was bombed to the floor Dredd resisted…
