The Town That Jell-O Built

Who doesn't love Jell-O? The little dessert that could has a fascinating history, and you'll be guided through it in this presentation by Dede Taylor, whose family has links to the gelatine treat. (in English)

Human Habitat: The Evolution of Efficiency

@ VOL 2 ON JAN 25, 2012

Small changes in our lifestyle can have a rather large impact on energy consumption. To prove this point, Chris goes through the KWH usage in various countries, to illustrate our energy-heavy habits and raise awareness. (in English)
