Kidney Sales and Moral Arguments, Janet Radcliffe Richards
The arguments used to justify the conclusion that kidney selling should be prohibited are remarkable. What lies at the root of these emotions, and what relevance should they have in practical decision making? When the kidney selling scandal first erupted in the UK, about fifteen years ago, the response was remarkable for its immediacy and unanimity. Politicians who agreed about almost nothing else joined in rushing to make the practice illegal, and professional bodies instantly declared it out o
Writing - Consolidating the Week's Work
Lesson plan involving children reviewing what they have learned about writing and encouraging them to create a list of things that good writers do.
"The Engineer of 2020, Fall 2009"
" Numerous recent studies have shown that the U.S. has relatively low percentages of students who enter science and engineering and a high drop-out rate. Some other countries are producing many more scientists and engineers per capita than the U.S. What does this mean for the future of the U.S. and the global economy? In this readings and discussion-based seminar you will meet weekly with the Dean of Undergraduate Education to explore the kind of education MIT and other institutions are and shou
Motor Exam: Anatomy: Spinal Cord Lesions
Spinal cord lesions often give UMN signs below the level of the lesion (from effect on the corticospinal tract) and LMN signs at the level of the lesion (from effect on the ventral horn or ventral nerve root). LMN signs are good for locating the level of a spinal cord lesion. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examinatio

Genetic Testing for Cancer: Is It Worth It?
Please visit: www.mdanderson.org/prevention for more information regarding prevention and screening How often you should get tested for breast cancer depends on your chances for getting the disease. If you are at increased risk for breast cancer, you may need to start screening exams at an earlier age, get additional tests or be tested more often. Learn when genetic testing makes sense for you. Dr. Banu Arun, Professor of Breast Medical Oncology and Co-Director of Clinical Cancer Genetics at The
Photonic Dipole Contours of Ferrofluid Hele-Shaw Cell (Two Magnet Pole Video)
This investigation describes and demonstrates a novel technique for the visualization of magnetic fields. Two ferrofluid Hele-Shaw cells have been constructed to facilitate the imaging of magnetic field lines. We deduce that magnetically induced photonic band gap arrays similar to electrostatic liquid crystal operation are responsible for the photographed images and seek to mathematically prove the images are of exact dipole nature. This is the two magnet version with the poles mostly facing the

VLSI Test Technology and Reliability
Course Description: With the continue scaling of transistor feature sizes, VLSI chip density continue increases. This results in a continue increase in the complexity VLSI technology where it has reached the point where billions of transistors are integrated on a single chip (like it is the case for System on Chip). To guarantee the satisfaction of the customers, the produced VLSI chips have to be reliable and fully tested. Verification testing and production testing represents 50 t0 60% of the
Water Cycle in a Bottle
Developed for second grade. In this activity students will be able to view the different ways water travels and the different forms in which water can be found. The experiment focuses mainly on evaporation, transpiration, condensation and precipitation within the 3 different soda bottle chambers. Students will create their own water cycle chambers by using 3 soda bottles (2 with the bottoms cut off) turned upside down and placed one inside the other. The bottom soda bottle will be filled with th
