Bine v-am gasit !

Sunt pasionat de documentare şi există foarte multe sit-uri pe internet cu documentare despre tot felul de subiecte captivante iar noi nu ştim nimic. Fiindcă sunt restricţii de copyright mă voi referi doar la sit-urile de unde se pot downloada absolut gratuit şi legal documentare din foarte multe domenii: stiinţă, literatură,artă, medicină, psihologie etc.



Nu trebuie decât să vă creaţi o bibliotecă de cuvinte cheie din domeniile ce vă intresează şi hocus-pocus veţi fi surprinşi de rezultate.

P.S. Am mai deschis un topic identic pe un alt forum dar am fost singurul care a postat 30-40 posturi, neprimind decât nişte reply-uri timide.

Growing Old In A New Age

A video instructional series on aging for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 13 one-hour video programs and coordinated books

Learn about the impact of aging on both society and individuals as 75 diverse elders relate their experiences. The four ways that age is measured — chronologically, biologically, psychologically, and socially — are the basis for discussing the quality of life in later years. The series examines common misconceptions about aging and provides a springboard for analyzing new roles for elders, intergenerational alliances, resource allocation, and artificial attempts to prolong life. These programs are particularly useful for students of psychology, gerontology, sociology, family studies, human development, and health sciences.

Produced by The University of Hawaii Center on Aging. 1993.

Individual Program Descriptions

VOD1. Myths and Realities of Aging
The common myths surrounding aging are compared with today's realities. Experts and elders describe how we learn about aging and how knowledge can help us debunk myths.

VOD2. How the Body Ages
Experts describe the universal physical changes that accompany aging and explain how deterioration can be prevented. Researchers describe advances in cellular studies and the search for biomarkers of aging.

VOD3. Maximizing Physical Potential of Older Adults
Considers ways to develop the greatest physical potential in an aging individual while compensating for the effects of aging. Elders describe how lifestyle choices have helped them maintain an active, healthy life.

The Brain : Teaching Modules

Video teaching modules for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 32 video modules (from 5 to 20 minutes in length).

Developed from the original series The Brain, these flexible resources offer extensive footage and research into the inner workings of this amazing human organ, including findings on Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, autism, Parkinson's disease, and many other topics. The modules are appropriate for use in general and advanced courses in psychology, abnormal and physiological psychology, neuropsychology, and occupational therapy.

VOD1. Organization and Evaluation of Brain Function
This module introduces the general external topography of the brain. To illustrate the relationship between specific behaviors and brain function, the module begins by showing a racecar driver exercising his skill, and then presents graphic illustrations of the internal activity of his brain. The module reviews several methods of studying brain activity including the CAT scan, PET scan, EEG, and MRI.

VOD2. The Effects of Hormones and the Environment on Brain Development
This module presents some startling and significant findings relating to the effects of sex hormones on brain development. Beginning with in utero photography and then visiting an animal laboratory, this module shows how Dr. Marian Diamond’s ground-breaking research has revealed structural differences in the brains of men and women, as well as factors influencing these differences.

VOD3. Gender Development: Social Influences
Shifting from the biological focus of the previous module, this segment shows how social factors affect gender-specific behaviors. Mother-child interactions are shown, illustrating typical differences in how male and female children are treated, and how this treatment affects gender identity, roles, and expectations, and perceived differences in ability.

VOD4. Intelligence and Culture
The issue of cultural bias in testing is explored in this module, presenting Judy Kearins’s work with Australian children. White and aboriginal children are shown to perform differently on visual/spatial tasks, and use different methods to arrive at solutions to the problems presented. Theories of cultural influence on cognitive processing and the shaping of the brain are suggested as explanations for tested differences in ability.

VOD5. The Divided Brain
This module begins with graphic representations of the cerebral hemispheres’ specialized functions. It continues with a description of the brain’s asymmetry, showing diagrams of how the two halves communicate. The extreme case of a patient who has undergone split-brain surgery for treatment of epilepsy illustrates the role of hemispheric organization in sensory perception and verbal skills.

VOD6. Language and Speech: Broca's and Wernicke's Areas

The left hemisphere is dominant in this module on language and the brain. Relationships between specific brain areas and verbal processing are shown through the historic example of Dr. Paul Broca’s brain-injury patient. The patient’s preserved brain is subjected to CAT scan analysis, which shows correspondence between the damaged area and the patient’s documented difficulties with language comprehension.

VOD7. Brain Anomaly and Plasticity: Hydrocephalus
Hydrocephalus, a childhood disorder of excess fluid in the brain, illustrates brain plasticity — the brain’s amazing ability to rebound after injury. While patients with this disorder experience compression and destruction of brain tissue early in life, many are able to function normally later in life, after their brains have compensated for the loss.

VOD8. Visual Information Processing: Elementary Concepts

This module depicts the original pioneering research on how the brain’s visual systems transmit and encode information. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, present their work on the visual cortex of the monkey using x-ray images. Two Nobel laureates also recount their serendipitous discovery of “feature detector” cells in the striate cortex that respond only to stimuli of certain sizes or direction of movement.

VOD9. Visual Information Processing: Perception

This module concentrates on higher visual areas beyond the striate cortex, addressing the questions of when seeing becomes perception and where it all takes place. Face recognition provides an illustrative example — patients suffering damage to their temporal lobes may see familiar faces, yet be unable to recognize them.

VOD10. Perception: Inverted Vision

The peculiar image inversion process that takes place in the normal visual system is examined in this module. The program traces the experiences of an art student who volunteers to wear lenses that invert her visual world, connecting the adaptation process she undergoes with how the visual system functions. Graphic animations reinforce understanding of the mechanism involved.

VOD11. Sensory-Motor Integration
Three spectacular dives of Olympic gold-medalist Greg Louganis provide vivid illustration of the human body in motion. The complex visual and motor coordination involved in sophisticated sensory-motor integration calls upon the faculties of the motor cortex, cerebellum, and basal ganglia. The roles of kinesthesis, vestibular functions, and cutaneous sensitivity are also covered.

VOD12. Huntington's Disease
Dr. Nancy Wexler of the Hereditary Disease Foundation and Columbia University recounts her research on the demographics, symptoms, and genetic cause of this debilitating illness. The module also explores ethical and moral dimensions of DNA testing, which can determine who will develop the disease.

VOD13. Sleep and Circadian Rhythms
This module covers our natural rhythms and the stages that occur during sleep. It shows the brain’s electrical activity over the course of a normal night’s sleep, with its REM and non-REM cycles. The remainder of the module is devoted to an experiment conducted by Michel Siffre, a French cave explorer, in which Siffre spends seven months in a Texas cave. Without external cues, the body is shown to have its own built-in clock.

VOD14. Sleep: Brain Functions
What is the purpose of sleep? This module sets out to answer this question by exploring the patterns of a woman’s sleep and dream cycles in the setting of a sleep laboratory. Characteristics of the five stages of sleep and the typical 90-minute cycle are explained. The module also covers sleep disorders and the current techniques used to treat them.

VOD15. REM Sleep and Dreaming
This module probes deeper issues relating to sleep and dreaming. The uniquely individual experience of dreaming requires researchers to look beyond conventional methods of study. Dream specialist Dr. J. Allan Hobson discusses the function of dreams, explaining his theory of the biological mechanism behind the phenomenon and reflecting on the contribution of dreaming to human creativity.

VOD16. The Locus of Learning and Memory

In the history of psychology, the question of where learning and memory take place has occupied investigators for years. Recent work at the National Institute of Mental Health has brought scientists closer to resolving the issue. This module shows magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology being used to identify specific changes in the motor cortex of human subjects — changes that correspond to training in particular tasks.

VOD17. Learning As Synaptic Change

This module presents researchers investigating the structural changes involved in learning. Research conducted at the Pasteur Institute in Paris shows that the learning process involves the formation of new brain connections and the elimination of others. Other researchers dispel the myth of brain loss in aging, present evidence of changes at the cellular level, and review research on associative learning.

VOD18. Living With Amnesia: The Hippocampus and Memory
Amnesia appears in many different forms. This module shows how the extent and location of damage can result in varying levels of memory impairment. Footage of Mike, an amnesic individual, demonstrates the result of an injury to the hippocampus. Mike’s reaction to his memory deficit and drastic coping measures underscore the importance of memory to everyday functioning.

VOD19. Alzheimer's Disease
When this program was first filmed, Eleanor, age 51, was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. This module follows Eleanor’s physical and mental decline after the initial filming. Pathology in the brainstem and other regions in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients are shown to interfere with acetylcholine release, resulting in neuronal atrophy. The module discusses our current knowledge of the disease and the direction of future research.

VOD20. A Super-Memorist Advises on Study Strategies
This module explores the brain’s potential for storage-as-memory. Rajan Mahadevan, a “super-memorist,” demonstrates his phenomenal memory by scanning a 7 by 7 matrix of digits and recalling all forty-nine digits forward, backward, and by columns. He also claims to have memorized 100,000 digits of pi. Mahadevan offers suggestions to help college students improve their study habits when learning new material.

VOD21. Emotions, Stress, and Health

Commentary from scientists, dramatic reenactments, and graphic illustrations show the consequences of prolonged stress on health. Animated diagrams show the brain releasing hormones, followed by a role-playing situation illustrating on-the-job stress that may set this process in motion. Researchers explain how low-level stress leads to the breakdown of frontal lobe functioning.

VOD22. Stress: Locus of Control and Predictability

The classic rat experiment described by Dr. Jay Weiss of Rockefeller University, New York, is presented in this module. Two rats are connected to a stressor — an electric shock to the tail. One rat is able to turn off the stimulus by turning a wheel, while the other receives the stress stimulus regardless of what it does. The rat with more control is shown to suffer fewer deleterious health consequences.

VOD23. Multiple Personality
Tony, walking down a country road, is shown talking to himself about his multiple personalities. Dr. Frances Howland of the Yale University School of Medicine describes Tony’s case, and viewers are shown Tony’s therapy sessions as different personalities emerge. The narrator explains the phenomenon as triggered in childhood by the need to flee psychologically from physical or sexual abuse.

VOD24. Aggression, Violence, and the Brain
This module links human aggressive behavior with specific regions of the brain. Scenes from classic experiments show stimulation of a bull’s brain to stop it from charging and excitation of a cat’s hypothalamus to trigger aggression. A striking case of violent human behavior is then linked to a brain lesion — the surgical removal of which restored normal emotional control.

VOD25. Frontal Lobes and Behavior: The Story of Phineas Gage
This module relates the story of Phineas Gage, whose name appears in virtually every general psychology textbook. After a heavy metal rod was blown through his temporal lobe, Phineas experienced dramatic mental change. The study of the trauma and its physiological effects provided the first documented evidence of how brain injury can affect human behavior.

VOD26. Schizophrenia: Symptoms
In this module, mental health professionals observe a patient named Jerry, a classic schizophrenic. Jerry’s case and medication schedule are described, and his disordered speech and behavior are shown. Prominent psychiatrists describe schizophrenia and the prognosis for those diagnosed with this disease; a locked psychiatric ward provides a graphic illustration.

VOD27. Schizophrenia: Etiology
This module covers the history of attitudes, beliefs, and theories about the etiology of schizophrenia. While the illness was long thought to be environmentally caused, this module emphasizes the scientific evidence in support of its organic origins. Dr. Arnold Scheibel of UCLA Medical Center describes cellular pathology in the hippocampus and speculates on the possible role of viruses. A genetic component is also demonstrated.

VOD28. Schizophrenia: Pharmacological Treatment
Dr. Arnold Scheibel reviews the various ways in which schizophrenia has been treated since the 1950s, ranging from the use of physical restraints and cool baths to the administration of antipsychotic drugs. He and other psychiatrists elaborate on the ways in which drugs alter the chemistry of the brain. Drugs that are effective seem to reduce the levels of dopamine in the brain — to provide amelioration and stabilization, not a cure.

VOD29. Autism
This module opens with statistics and a description of autism and how the disorder has been viewed historically. Studies now support the theory that autism results from a lack of normal neural growth during prenatal development. Dr. Temple Grandin of Colorado State University, severely autistic as a child, is presented as someone who overcame her autism and managed to use her way of perceiving the world to her advantage.

VOD30. Understanding the Brain Through Epilepsy
In the midst of a young boy’s epileptic seizure, Dr. Fritz Dreifuss describes what is happening to him on a medical level. He explains that a lack of adequate inhibitory neurotransmitter function leads to an “electrical storm” in the brain. Different types of treatment are covered, including valproic acid and radical surgeries, along with how and why they are effective.

VOD31. Brain Transplants in Parkinson's Patients

This module covers the symptoms and mechanisms involved in Parkinson’s disease. It explains the effectiveness and limitations of traditional treatment using L-dopa. The module then describes one of the most promising new approaches to treating Parkinson’s disease — brain transplant — involving the implantation of fetal tissue into patients’ basal ganglia.

VOD32. Neurorehabilitation
The promising results of rehabilitation after brain trauma have encouraged a growing number of centers dedicated to working with brain-injury victims. Specialists at such centers discuss the range of treatments now available, and the cases of actual patients are reviewed. The module shows that people can recover significantly from brain damage.

Exploring The World Of Music

A video instructional series on the elements of music for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 12 half-hour video programs, audiocassettes, CDs, and coordinated books

Gain an understanding of the basic elements of music with this series, an introduction to music with a global perspective. Exploring the World of Music shows how elements such as melody, rhythm, and texture create an infinite variety of sounds and serve as expressions of culture. Through rare archival footage and contemporary performances, the series presents themes such as music and the environment, music as cultural memory, and how technology changes music. The featured artists perform music from around the world, including American jazz, gospel, and rock, and traditional music from Bosnia, the Caribbean, India, Ireland, Japan, and West Africa. This series is also valuable for teachers seeking to review the subject matter.

Indvividual Program Descriptions

1. Sound, Music, and the Environment
What do different cultures mean by music? This program explores the definition of music from the sine wave to poetic metaphor, and the impact of the cultural environment on musics as different as Bosnian ganga and becarac singing; Tuvan throat singing; Irish, West African, Trinidadian, and Japanese musics; and Western chamber music, jazz, and rock.

2. The Transformative Power of Music
Music can inspire religious devotion, prepare individuals for war, motivate work, enrich play, and stimulate the passions. The musical healing ceremonies of the Kung people in Namibia and Botswana, Epirote music in traditional Greek weddings, and modern rock, gospel, and folk musics all reveal music's power to transform lives.

3. Music and Memory
As a dynamic link to the past, music allows us to recall and revive our different cultural heritages through the performances we participate in now. West African griots, the Walbiri people of Australia, folksingers of Ireland and Appalachia, and modern practitioners of early music show us how our musical pasts live again today.

4. Transmission: Learning Music
How we learn musical traditions and how we maintain, modify, notate, teach, and perform them for a new, younger audience are exemplified here in Indian classical music, African village drumming, and modern jazz and gospel.

5. Rhythm
Marking time and moving through our bodies, rhythm has a special relationship to both musical form and worldwide dance traditions. How rhythm structures music is examined through the American marching band, North Indian tala, Japanese shakuhachi tradition, West African drumming, and Afro-Cuban dance music.

6. Melody
Melody — the part of music we most often remember — is examined here both scientifically and poetically, from a strict sequence of pitches to a group of notes "in love with each other." We see and hear melodies shaped, elaborated, and developed within Western classical music, the Arabic maqam tradition, Irish dance music and sean-nós singing, and Indian raga.

7. Timbre: The Color of Music
The tone color of music — or "timbre," as we call it in the Western tradition — is influenced by both technical and aesthetic factors. This program examines the creation and effects of timbre in jazz and Indian, West African, Irish, Bosnian, Indonesian gamelan, and Japanese musics.

8. Texture
The way different voices and instruments work together to produce the overall sound gives music its texture. This program examines texture in Japanese shakuhachi, Trinidadian steel band, Bosnian ganga, West African percussion, and modern Australian choral music.

9. Harmony
When two or more notes sound together, harmony occurs. This interaction of pitches, understood in vastly different ways around the world, is analyzed here in jazz, chamber music, Bosnian ganga singing, early music plainchants, and barbershop quartets.

10. Form: The Shape of Music
Form — the way music is organized and structured from beginning to end — guides composers, performers, and listeners in all musics. Here, the traditional Western sonata, the blueprints behind improvisational jazz, the narrative structure of traditional Japanese music, call-and-response forms in West African music and American gospel, and Irish fiddle tunes exemplify worldwide variations in musical form.

11. Composers and Improvisers
How are a composer and an improvisor alike? How are they different? The marriage between fixed elements and new variation is examined in American rock, Indian raga, classical and contemporary Western music, jazz, and Arabic classical music.

12. Music and Technology
New instrument types and new electronic media for distribution are obvious results of technology, but so were the first bone flute and the first stretched catgut. How technology affects music is examined here in a case study of the flute, and in an examination of developing recording and composing technologies where the roles of composer, musician, arranger, and conductor begin to fuse.

Despre daci, nimic ? wink.gif

Pe când nu era moarte, nimic nemuritor,
Nici sâmburul luminii de viată dătător,
Nu era azi, nici mâine, nici ieri, nici totdeauna,
Căci unul erau toate si totul era una.

Acum urmează seria Ascent of Man, realizată în 1973. Cele 13 episoade sunt prezentate de domnul J. Bronowski, ce expune doar o viziune personală. A dezvoltat o întreagă teorie despre evoluţia omului, legăturile dintre matematică şi armonia naturii. Oricum merită fiecare minut, fiindcă omul este de-a dreptul genial. Cel puţin asta este impresia care mi-a rămas după ce am urmărit episodul 5 - Muzica sferelor.

The Lightbringers - The Emissaries of Jahbulon

Hand in hand with the book: Architects of Deception: The Concealed History of Freemasonry

The world we live in may seem frightening and confusing. The politicians and mass media claim that there is no pattern for the turn of events. The idea that there is a hidden connection between various destructive phenomena is usually ridiculed as a "conspiracy theory", which does not fit in with the official world-view.

To create order out of this apparent chaos, a key is necessary.
You are holding such a key in your hands. Jüri Lina's revealing book provides an insight into the concealed network behind past and present events. This political system has been built up by forces working behind the scenes – an all-encom-passing deception by the Knights Templar, the Illuminati and today the Freemasons, clearly evident in our present lives.

DW - Toxic Textiles ?

user posted image
Are the sales personnel of Germany's clothing retailers at risk of being poisoned? The textiles they sell are contaminated with highly toxic chemicals. The chemical PCP (Pentachlorophenol), which is prohibited in Germany, is applied to garments to protect them during transport to Europe. Other hazardous pesticides used in the cultivation of cotton in Asia have also been found in textiles. A camera crew picks up the trail in India, following the toxic garments on their way to Germany.

BBC Discovering Tchaikovsky 2 part series

"Discovering Tchaikovsky" is a two-part series in which conductor Charles Hazlewood explores one of the works featured in BBC Two’s accompanying drama-documentaries on the composer’s life.

In the first programme he examines the “Fantasy Overture” from Romeo And Juliet – considered Tchaikovsky’s first mature masterpiece.
Working with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Charles explores how Tchaikovsky distilled the essence of Shakespeare’s great romantic tragedy into music.

He also looks at the composer’s earliest versions of the piece and the programme ends with a complete performance of Romeo And Juliet.

In each programme, Charles Hazlewood dissects the musical score itself, working through the music and explaining and analysing key points in the material with the orchestra performing fragments of the score to illustrate his points.

There then follows a full performance of the score, filmed at the spectacular Empress Ballroom in Blackpool’s Winter Gardens.
