In session 7 of the talks, Mahzarin Banaji (professor of social ethics & human thinking & feeling in a social context) does a good talk on how we consciously declare that we don't have any prejudice toward a particular ethnic group, religion or race, but when a test / exercise is performed the results would seem to indicate that subconsciously we do have a bias toward a race, religion or whatever the test is for. The object being that if we can learn what goes on in our mind without our conscious awareness - we can discover where those beliefs come from. The light at the end of the tunnel being that these beliefs are malleable - we can change and move forward. Some of these tests can be found at: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/

As one audience member says: "whenever you learn something about yourself when you think you know yourself - its a remarkable moment."

[edit: I guess this should be in the Off-topic lounge or Society maybe. Sorry folks]

I have been working my way through the videos of the "Physics for future presidents" course from UC Berkley:

(although they have lots of other courses online too)

I have learned so much, and it is all practical stuff too. (stuff from the real world) There is hardly any math, it is just about all conceptual stuff.

Thanks for the link to that UC Berkley class. It is entertaining enough for me to get through it, teaches interesting relevant facts, and is additive/synergistic with other studies. Good stuff!

I found the synthetic biology seminars at UC Berkeley to be very good.

In general: UCLA Faculty Lectures are quite good (on video.google). I've seen everything there from how the brain develops in a fetus to a lady showing how she discovered the black hole in our galaxy.
