Systems as the Driver for Synthetic Biology
By: RASEIBoulder We now possess the ability to read and write DNA. These tools are not only revolutionizing biotechnology but also the basic life sciences as well. The challenge is that we are still learning the grammar. In other words, we often do not know which genetic perturbations to make in order to alter the behavior of an organism. As a result, synthetic biology still involves much trial and error. Moreover, we are still far from the point where we can engineer new organisms from scratch
Putting harmful waste to healthy use
Of all the things that end up in our water, phosphorus can be particularly troublesome. Michigan State University researchers are testing a new filtering technology that removes phosphorus and allows it to be turned into a much-needed product: fertilizer. Visit http://report.president.msu.edu/360/ for a firsthand look at Spartan impact in locations from East Lansing to East Africa.

Geography and Geology Powerpoints Page
Free Geography Powerpoint presentations. Great for KS1 KS2 KS3 KS4 and post 16 A level lesson plans, K-12 and more. Use and alter these presentations freely or any power point template used in this presentations site for other teachers. If you have any powerpoints then please consider submitting them for other teachers to download too. It's all about sharing and helping others. Powerpoints and whiteboards are likely to increase in popularity year by year as more and more schools adopt them.
Global Interdependence: Are the U.S and Other Markets 'Sowing the Seeds' for the Next Crisis?
Despite renewed GDP growth and other positive signs, the U.S. isn't out of the woods, says Wharton finance professor Franklin Allen. In fact, the country could be heading into a "double dip" scenario that tips it back into a recession. That depends on how a number of factors play out in the coming months -- or even years -- not only in the U.S., but also around the world. Global interest rate policies, property markets and public deficits will all demand attention, Allen notes in a recent interv
Patchworking as a Metaphor for Learning
Understanding youth, learning and technology
On basis of a close empirical examination of a Danish team of 'Power Users' and their work on a self-chosen learning challenge this thesis argues how we can theoretically understand, analyse and methodologically approach learning processes through the metaphorical lens of patchworking. The metaphor of patchworking highlights how learning processes can be seen as processes of stitching and weaving together different patches and pieces into something new. The patches and pieces may not
National Health Reform Series- Youth Mental Health: Is anybody listening?
ANU presents a roundtable series that will contribute significantly to the health reform agenda in Australia. The fourth event in the series is ‘Youth mental health: is anybody listening?' - Australian of Year and mental health advocate Professor Patrick McGorry will be part of the expert panel. Recent media reports have indicated concerns about the adequacy of the national health reform processes in relation to mental health, especially youth mental health. What can be done to address the
Despite its 14-year lead, many don't know that Jamestown was settled before Plymouth. James Axtell's article, "Historical Rivalry," explores the reasons why.
Achieving Affective Impact: Visual Emotive Communication in Lifelike Pedagogical Agents
Lifelike animated agents for knowledge-based learning environments can provide timely, customized advice to support learnersâ problem-solving activities. By drawing on a rich repertoire of emotive behaviors to exhibit contextually appropriate facial expressions and emotive gestures, these agents could exploit the visual channel to more effectively communicate with learners. To address these issues, this article proposes the emotive-kinesthetic behavior sequencing framework for dynamically seque
Adaptive and context-aware scenarios for technology-enhanced learning system based on a didactical t
Among the main issues of future technology-enhanced learning systems, we can mention the following ones: the ability to reuse learning resources (learning objects, tools and services) from large repositories, to take into account the context and to allow dynamic adaptation to different learners based on substantial advances in pedagogical theories and knowledge models. In our framework, the goal of scenarios is to describe the learning and tutoring activities to acquire some knowledge domain (fo
Internet Scout Project
Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI) sponsors the Clay Mathematics Research Academy to "inspire young people with the thrill of working on the frontiers of mathematical research." Each year, twelve high school students are recruited and a Colloquium is held at CMI headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After the intense 8-day seminar, participants continue their work using iResearch, a web-based collaborative tool suite designed by the Academy. The 2004 Academy Colloqium Series was held March 19
A Comparison of Model-Tracing and Constraint-Based Intelligent Tutoring Paradigms
Two approaches to building intelligent tutoring systems are the well-established model-tracing paradigm and the relatively newer constraint-based paradigm. Proponents of the constraint-based paradigm claim that it affords performance at levels comparable to that of model-tracing tutors, but with significantly less development effort. We have built both a model-tracing and constraint-based tutor for the same problem domain (statistical hypothesis testing) and report on our findings with the goals
