"Eden Rock" by Charley Causley (poetry reading)
A projection of the afterlife, drawn from idyllic memories of childhood. He pictures his parents as they used to be when he was a child. Most parents take photographs and videos of their children to provide lasting memories to treasure in later years. But very few take pictures of themselves - and it is pictures of the parents that the children will want to see: that is what THEY saw at the time. Women grow conscious of the toll taken by passing years and become more and more reluctant

California Academy of Sciences: AntWeb
AntWeb, an excellent service of the California Academy of Sciences, provides users with "tools for exploring the diversity and identification of ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). These tools have been developed to facilitate the use of ants in inventory and monitoring programs and provide ant taxonomists with images and types." At present, AntWeb offers information on all ant genera worldwide as well as highlighting ants of Madagascar and California in particular. The site provides a search engine
This series of three interactive, multimedia activities introduce and demonstrate the properties of six simple machines. Specifically, the lessons show how levers, pulleys, inclined planes, screws, wheels and axles, and wedges can reduce the amount of work done by humans. After learning about the characteristics of each classification, users can try to find the simple machines that make up a lawn mower. By inspecting the mower from different angles, several simple machines are revealed and must
Tutorial on Optimization Theory and Difference and Differential Equations
This online tutorial is intended for college students taking an early course in mathematical optimization or linear differential equations. Although it is written by a professor of economics, little economic theory is presented. This keeps the material centered on the mathematical aspects of optimization and differential equations, which have a wide range of scientific applications. The text is very well organized and is accompanied by illustrative figures. No prerequisites to the tutorial are l
Students learn that wind and storms can form at the boundaries of interacting high and low pressure air masses. They learn the distinguishing features of the four main types of weather fronts (warm fronts, cold fronts, stationary fronts and occluded fronts) and how these fronts are depicted on a surface weather analysis, or weather map. Students also learn several different ways that engineers help with storm prediction, analysis and protection.
Engineering for the Earth
Young students are introduced to the complex systems of the Earth through numerous lessons on the Earth’s natural resources, processes, weather, climate and landforms. Key earth science topics include rocks, soils and minerals, water and natural resources, weather patterns and climatic regions, wind, erosion, landforms, and the harvesting of fossil fuels — all presented from an engineering point-of-view. (See the Unit Overview section for a list of topics by lesson.) Through many hands-on ac
What is Energy?
With an introduction to the ideas of energy, students discuss specific types of energy and the practical sources of energy. Hands-on activities help them identify types of energy in their surroundings and enhance their understanding of energy.

"Ausleihdaten aus Bibliotheken als Linked Open Data publizieren und nutzen" Magnus Pfeffer (Hochschu
By: SWIB In einem laufenden Projekt untersuche ich gemeinsam mit Kai Eckert von der UB Mannheim und Studierenden an der Hochschule der Medien mögliche Anwendungsfälle für Ausleihdaten aus Bibliothekssystemen als Linked Data. Das erste Szenario ist der statistische Vergleich von (Teil-)Bibliotheken. Hierbei muss die Beschreibung der Bibliotheken, ihres Bestanded und der Ausleihbedingungen als Vokabular modelliert werden. Dieses Vokabular und seine Semantik muss sich an den vorhandenen Standar
Reading Rainbow: Watch the Stars Come Out
Videotaped at Ellis Island in 1985, this 28 minute video shows immigrants landing at Ellis Island. It shows the variety of immigrants and they company that they came from that landed in this point of entry. The video is an overview of immigration, but does not offer statistical data and tends to be a general overview.
SMU Research Day 2012
SMU graduate students — and a limited number of undergraduates — present results of research they have completed at SMU at the annual Graduate Student Research Day. This year's event was held Friday, February 10, 2012, in the Ballroom of Hughes-Trigg Student Center. The aims of this event are to foster communication between students in different programs, give students the opportunity to present their work in formats they will use as professionals, and share with the SMU community and othe
