Summary
What, exactly, are you doing when you agree to a contract? Should courts blindly enforce fine print that nobody ever reads? Where's the line between salesmanship and outright fraud? Should written contracts carry more weight than verbal ones? Join Professor Horton for an accessible introduction from contract essentials, including offers, acceptances, counteroffers, and options and defenses, to contract enforcement, such as fraud, duress, and unconscionability. In lectures that demystify concepts and terms that can often seem intimidating to individuals outside of legal fields, you'll better understand (and navigate) the contracts of everyday life. Legal concepts come alive in court cases that range from the outrageous to the heart-rending to the ridiculous. Among the many cases you'll examine are those involving a contract for the sale of a farm written on a piece of scratch paper, a young man who claimed a soda company owed him a fighter jet, and two companies that couldn't agree on the meaning of the word "chicken." Professor Horton shatters the stereotype of contract law as dry and complex and transforms it into a profoundly accessible learning experience. The result is an education in contract law-and in the American legal system-that's unlike anything you'll find outside a top-tier law school.

Summary
One of the most captivating components of this course is how Professor Schmid-both an avid fan of mystery and suspense and a scholar of the genre- surveys the same works through many lenses, giving you a different perspective each time. With Professor Schmid as your guide, you'll examine the use and many variations of characters such as the detective, the criminal, the sidekick, the private eye, the police officer, and the femme fatale, as well as how the interconnections between these character types both define and defy their genres. For example, the relationship between the detective and police or the juxtaposition of criminal and private eye can help delineate subgenres within mystery and suspense fiction. Professor Schmid considers the ways certain works might utilize clues, solutions, poetic justice, and violence, taking you through centuries of history and various sorts of suspense fiction to pinpoint specific examples. As authors experimented with the form over time, you'll learn how books with ambiguous or unsolved conclusions became gradually more accepted into the mainstream, reflecting a change in the audience who once saw open-ended conclusions as simply frustrating or unsettling.

Summary
We're all getting older every day, and scientific research has shown that starting in our twenties, some brain functions begin a linear decline. But is old age all doom and gloom? Not at all! While it's true that some functions in the aging brain decline, neuroscientists have discovered that many other brain functions remain stable - or even improve - as we age. Furthermore, nurture plays as significant a role as nature, and there are a number of strategies you can implement to stave off declining brain function, including: - Incorporating physical activity into your routine - Eating a healthy diet - Maintaining a vibrant social life - Reducing your stress The science behind the aging brain tells a fascinating - and often counterintuitive - story. Is "aging" a disease, or merely a natural occurrence that produces disease-like symptoms? If humans are biologically programmed to survive and thrive, why do we age at all? Is it possible (or even desirable) to "cure" aging altogether? Delve into these questions and more in The Aging Brain. Taught by a neuroscientist and award-winning professor at the University of Michigan, these twelve eye-opening lectures will give you a wealth of new insights into what happens to the brain over time - as well as strategies to mitigate the effects of aging and enhance your quality of life into old age. With a mix of scientific research and practical applications, Professor Polk brings cutting-edge science to life. He takes you down to the cellular and even molecular level of the brain to show you why certain functions decline, how some aspects of brain aging are under genetic control, and what you can do to prolong your health and keep your mind sharp. Aging affects us all, but you have some control over how it affects you. With what you learn here, you can face the challenges of aging with comprehension and confidence, armed with knowledge to help you live a longer, healthier, and more enjoyable life. All Lectures: 1. The Aging Mind: What Changes? 2. Why Don't We Live Forever? 3. Is Aging a Disease? 4. Aging and Brain Structure 5. Aging and Brain Function 6. Emotional Aging 7. Strategies for an Aging Memory 8. Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease 9. Parkinson's Disease and Stroke 10. Aging Well: Staying Active 11. Aging Well: Diet and Stress 12. The Science of Immortality
