Modern Poetry (ENGL 310) with Langdon Hammer Wallace Stevens is considered as an unapologetically Romantic poet of imagination. His search for meaning in a universe without religion in "Sunday Morning" is likened to Crane's energetic quest for meaning and symbol. In "The Poems of Our Climate," Stevens's desire to reduce poetry to essential terms, and then his countering resistance to this impulse, are explored. Finally, "The Man on the Dump" is considered as a typically Stevensian search for truth in specifically linguistic terms. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction: Wallace Stevens 09:22 - Chapter 2.

In which John Green explores exactly when Rome went from being the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire. Here's a hint: it had something to do with Julius Caesar, but maybe less than you think. Find out how Caesar came to rule the empire, what led to him getting stabbed 23 times on the floor of the senate, and what happened in the scramble for power after his assassination. John covers Rome's transition from city-state to dominant force in the Mediterranean in less than 12 minutes. Well, Rome's expansion took hundreds of years, he just explains it in under 12 minutes. The senate, the people, Rome, the caesarian section, the Julian calendar and our old friend Pompey all make appearances, but NOT the Caesar Salad, as Julius had nothing to do with it.

The Early Middle Ages, 284--1000 (HIST 210) Professor Freedman introduces the major themes of the course: the crisis of the Roman Empire, the rise of Christianity, the threats from barbarian invasions, and the continuity of the Byzantine Empire. At the beginning of the period covered in this course, the Roman Empire was centered politically, logistically, and culturally on the Mediterranean Sea. Remarkable for its size and longevity, the Empire was further marked by its tolerance. Although it contained an eclectic mix of peoples, the Empire was unified in part by a local elite with a shared language and customs. In the third century these strengths were increasingly threatened by the Empire's sheer size, its imbalances, both East-West and urban-rural, and by an army that realizes it could make and unmake emperors. Having set the scene, Professor Freedman looks to subsequent lectures where he will discuss reforms enacted to address these weaknesses. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Welcome 09:54 - Chapter 2.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Faculty of Education CREATE series. The role of libraries will be examined -- specifically the Education Library, First Nations House of Learning Xwi7xwa Library, and more broadly, school libraries. The re-imagined teacher education program has inspired revision in the role Education librarians play to respectfully and meaningfully integrate First Nations history, content, and world-views; commit to inquiry and research oriented education; and emphasize diversity and social and ecological justice. Our libraries can support teacher candidates as they acquire theoretical understandings for teaching and apply those theories in their practice. We bring teacher candidates and ideas together in library spaces that offer unique learning environments, where inquiry, collaboration, the role of Indigenous Knowledge, relationships and ways of knowing are celebrated. This session will be interactive: we present our re-imagined roles and seek feedback and ideas to further ensure our relevance for faculty and teacher candidates. Speakers include: Jo-Anne Naslund, Acting Head, Instructional Programs Librarian, Education Library; Sarah Dupont, Aboriginal Engagement Librarian, First Nations House of Learning—Xwi7xwa Library.

Professor Rosemary Ashton (UCL English Language and Literature) (11 Feb anniversary of UCL foundation in 1826) In 1825 a group of liberal politicians, lawyers, dissenting ministers, Roman Catholics, and Jews came together to found a university in London aimed at those excluded from the two old-established English universities, where teachers and students were required to be subscribing Anglicans. To mark the anniversary of UCL's foundation on 11 Feb 1826 this lecture looks at the opposition to the new university among Tory politicians and journalists, especially in the ultra-Tory paper John Bull, which nicknamed the new institution 'Stinkomalee' in honour of the swampy rubbish dump on which the building was constructed between 1826 and 1828.

Malawi is one of the world's most densely populated, yet least developed nations. HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria all pose a serious threat to the countries' primarily rural population. In a bid to fight these killers, while also reducing reliance on foreign aid, Malawian researcher Victor Mwapasa teamed up with Dutch scientists to develop a Research Support Centre that addressed some of the countries' health challenges from within. This research was funded by NWO-WOTRO Science for Global Development. For more information, visit http://www.nwo.nl/wotro.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport is an airport located in Kolkata, West Bengal, India, serving the greater Kolkata metro area. The airport was originally known as Dum Dum Airport before being renamed in the honour of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. From April 2006 to March 2012, it was the fifth busiest airport in the country in terms of overall passenger traffic, and ninth busiest in terms of international passenger traffic. It is located approximately 17 km from Kolkata's city centre. Spread over an area of 1670 acres, Kolkata airport is the largest in eastern India and one of only two international airports operating in West Bengal, the other being in Bagdogra. It is a major centre for flights to North-East India, Bangladesh and Southeast Asia. The airport has three terminals: a domestic terminal, an international terminal and a cargo terminal spread over an area of 4,500 acres (1,800 ha). The domestic terminal was extended in 2009 to cater to an increasing demand of passengers. New ticketing counters, check-in kiosks and cafes were added. The airport has four aerobridges, with three in the domestic terminal and one in the international terminal. The current terminals have reached over-capacity, as there has been a huge increase in the number of passengers traveling through the airport. It is expected that the airport will handle additional four million passengers every year from 2012, up from the 1.01 million now it handles. The airport has a facility of prepaid taxis and air-conditioned buses that connect it to the city. Volvo buses connect the airport to different parts of the city. As part of the larger modernisation programme, a flyover at Nagerbazar and an entry ramp on VIP Road have also been constructed. A 2 km flyover from Kestopur to Jora Mandir is being built to speed up the airport bound traffic. These should reduce journey times to the airport. Kolkata airport is also connected to the Kolkata Suburban Railway system. It was the first airport in India to have this facility, which opened in 2005. The four kilometre long elevated track connects the airport's Biman Bandar station with Dumdum Cantonment, passing Jessore Road. Electric multiple unit rolling stock serve the line. The railway line has seen poor patronage, leading to plans to replace it with a metro system. Current Kolkata Metro expansion plans include two new lines to the airport, one from Noapara connecting at Barasat, and the other from New Garia. Both lines will converge at the airport and form an underground station.
