Flutter movement of Artemia salina
This organism is found in water and flutters its appendages to move. Butterflies fly through the air using a similar movement.
Molly Brown: Biography of a Changing Nation
The true story of Margaret Brown transcends the limitation of myth, revealing a woman of extraordinary spirit and complexity who embodied the issues of her times and the power of individual action. This reformer worked hard to make a difference and her confidence made it possible for her to help others and this 2:30 video helps explains these. Unfortunately, it just touches on them so this video could be used as a discovery lesson since it includes reformers, mining, and even the Titanic.
1.2.9 Reading diagrams: questioning what they say With each of these diagrams and others we are trying to read there is another set of more searching questions we can ask: What is the purpose of the diagram, i.e. what is it aiming to tell us? How is the information imparted? What assumptions does it make about our ability to understand it? What are we expected to remember from it? How successful is
With each of these diagrams and others we are trying to read there is another set of more searching questions we can ask:
What is the purpose of the diagram, i.e. what is it aiming to tell us?
How is the information imparted?
What assumptions does it make about our ability to understand it?
What are we expected to remember from it?

1.2.8 Working with other people's diagrams – reading diagrams Reading diagrams is an equally useful skill to that of drawing diagrams. Not only does it help you understand what other people are trying to convey, it also helps you be critical of the diagrams you draw yourself. In some cases diagrams are used to make the text look pretty or appealing and do not add to the understanding of the reader (hopefully not the case with the diagrams here!). Even when they are used more effectively there is a need to be critical of what information is being conveye

Museum Summer Camp 2011
Some young budding archaeologists spend part of the summer going back in time and exploring artifacts and cultures from around the world at Penn's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Each summer, more than 200 elementary and middle school students participate in the summer camp, which offers students a taste of life as an archaeologist and anthropologist through eight weeks of theme oriented sessions, such as "Superheros of the Past and Present," "Archaeology" and "Ancient Egypt." For more
In this activity, students filter different substances through a plastic window screen, different sized hardware cloth and poultry netting. Their model shows how the thickness of a filter in the kidney is imperative in deciding what will be filtered out and what will stay within the blood stream.

2011 California College of the Arts Commencement (short)
California College of the Arts (CCA) held its 104th commencement exercises on Saturday, May 14, 2011, at the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco. Honorary doctorate Betty Reid Soskin delivered the commencement address to more than 450 CCA graduates and their families. Fellow honorary doctorate John Baldessari and Soskin were also honored at a private dinner and participated in the post-commencement reception at CCA's San Francisco campus.

AGU Press Briefing May 29th: Urban Ecology of Phoenix, AZ.
Ecologists now accept human beings and our activities as a significant influence on the Earths ecology. ASTER data is being used to better understand urban ecology, in particular how humans build their cities and affect the surrounding environment. Will Stefanov of Arizona State University will present the first set of ASTER images of the urban skeleton of the amount of built structures in 12 cities around the world and discuss the Urban Environmental Monitoring project which will examine 100 ur
Jakobshavn Glacier Retreat (WMS)
Since measurements of Jakobshavn Isbrae were first taken in 1850, the glacier has gradually receded, finally coming to rest at a certain point for the past 5 decades. However, from 1997 to 2003, the glacier has begun to recede again, this time almost doubling in speed. The finding is important for many reasons. For starters, as more ice moves from glaciers on land into the ocean, it raises sea levels. Jakobshavn Isbrae is Greenlands largest outlet glacier, draining 6.5 percent of Greenlands ice
Greenland: Full West Coast (second render)
This animation shows the ice concentration in Greenland. The ice has decreased significantly (~50 cm-year) along the coast and increased slightly in the center (+2 cm-year). Researchers view this as yet another serious warning sign of the threat of global warming.
AMSR_E Pacific Sea Surface Temperature Data Used to Forecast 2003 Hurricane Season
Researchers and forecasters often study sea surface temperatures for an activity predictions for 2003 in part to changing conditions in the Pacific Ocean, such as the demise of El Nino. This sequence traces the evolution of the warmer-than-normal waters associated with the weak El Nino that developed in the late fall of 2002. By January, the warm conditions began to dissipate. Fewer than normal hurricanes generally form when El Nino is present. Researchers say the Pacific may transition to the c

Population Density of the World, 1990-2015 (WMS)
This animation shows the population density of the world in the years 1990, 1995, 2000, as well as a projected population density map in 2015. These figures have been adjusted to match United Nations totals. The most dramatic differences in population are not readily visible in this animation because they are located in cities. The maximum population density in 1990 was about 79,000 people per square kilometer, while the estimated maximum population density in 2015 will be about 236,000 people p
