How does laser cooling work? - YouTube

Erica Simosons insight:
This is a nice overview of how Doppler Cooling works in a simple way. The details of how they accurately measure temperature is not explained though. But they do give common applications of laser cooling!

Erica Simosons insight:
Some things are worth "Scooping"! Although you read a lot of different resources, only "scoop" the ones that are truly helpful and creditable.

A great read #content

Laurie Bleier's curator insight, July 27, 2018 12:20 PM

Google has stated that “quality content” is a main factor in search engine positioning. Quality content is user friendly, relevant and unique. Sites that adopt these guidelines will enjoy better search engine positioning. The importance of unique content cannot be stressed enough. A common problem with low ranking websites is that they have failed to invest in website copywriters and simply copy/paste from the suppliers’ sites, or plagiarize. This is understandable. If you want to rank well on Google, unique content is vital! Learn more about quality content here.

The scientific method is crap: Teman Cooke at TEDxLancaster - YouTube

Erica Simosons insight:
Teman Cooke, Ph.D. rants about flaws of how the Scientific Model misrepresents scientific exploration. We can be too obsessed with finding or knowing the Right Answers and Right Conclusions, but the truth and understanding of things quite often comes from knowing what doesn't work or what is wrong!
christian riosberrios's curator insight, September 6, 2018 9:05 AM
Science has being push out of our culture for too long, by the believe that is just too hard.  It is not so much that the scientific method might be wrong or that is not the best, since it serve as a base to teach children about science, in a very practical way.  It is our out dated curriculum and schools what stops new generation from pursuing a future in sciences.

The Reliability of these resource rank high. Since the source is provided, is from a TED x talk, these are normally very reliable.
