Women, Rights, and Power || Women Making Democracy || Radcliffe Institute
Given that demands for democratization are typically framed in universalistic language, this panel will consider ways in which women take important roles in making demands for democratization or for participation in newly democratic governments. It will also examine how gender-specific issues become a central component of demands on newly democratized governments. 00:00 Introduction by Jane J.

The PCR Song
"Scientists for Better PCR" produced this Bio-Rad Music video that is filmed in the style of a celebrity benefit. The music video is a commercial for a BioRad thermocycler, which is essentially a DNA copying machine. During the song, there are jokes about the particulars of reproducing the genetic material as well as terms students may need to become familiar. The value of the video is that the terms used provide insights into the uses of DNA and can provide students with an idea of how th
Science Bulletins: Planck and Herschel: The Sky at Two Scales
Planck and Herschel, a pair of satellites launched in 2009, are examining the sky in tandem to solve some of our biggest cosmological mysteries. Using detectors that read far-infrared light, both satellites are now scanning dust in the Milky Way Galaxy. The do so at different scales. Planck captures large swathes of the sky, while Herschel narrows in on smaller regions at slightly different wavelengths. The new images will give researchers a better understanding of galactic dust and its role in
Science Bulletins: WISE to Scan the Infrared Sky
NASA's latest space telescope-the Wide Field Infrared Explorer, or WISE-recently took its first images of the sky around Earth in infrared light. In its initial six-month mission, WISE will spot thousands of previously unseen space objects, including asteroids and comets, brown dwarfs, and distant ultraluminous galaxies.
Science Bulletins: Gigantic Snake Fossil Discovered
In the rock layers of a vast open-pit coal mine in Colombia, paleontologists have uncovered a fossil of the largest snake known to have existed. The massive 60,000-year-old vertebrae suggest that the creature was about as long as a bus and three feet thick. The discovery team, composed of researchers from Canada, Panama, and the United States, named the snake Titanoboa cerrejonensis ("titanic boa from Cerrejón") after its size, its close relatives, and the name of the mine. Researchers think Ti
