Learn about the formula used in the NFL concussion settlement to pay injured players, in this video short from FRONTLINE. Under the settlement, a player’s brain could be worth as much as $5 million or as little as nothing. In 2013, negotiators representing the NFL and former players came up with a plan to pay ex-players with a qualifying condition. The plan factored in the player’s age, the seriousness of the illness, and how long he played, and might cost the NFL about $1 billion in payouts to former players. The league makes $1 billion each year in sponsorship revenues alone. For background, watch Introduction to CTE and review How CTE Affects the Brain.

Their challenge is to incorporate into the building design a reliable means for evacuation and a system to control the fire's spread in the event that a fire does break out. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, learn how an old technology—fire sprinklers—and new computer systems can work together to help prevent fires large and small from turning modern multi-story buildings into towering infernos.
