The Lure of Authority: Motivation and Incentive Effects of Power [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Ernst Fehr | Authority and power permeate political, social, and economic life - yet there is limited empirical knowledge about the motivational origins and consequences of authority. Based on an experimental approach, Ernst Fehr's lecture will explore the psychological consequences of authority for important economic interactions. He will document the human desire to exercise authority, the motivation-enhancing effect of possessing authority and the detrimental motivationa

Testing Issues of Foraging and Flocking Behavior
Students foraging for 100 pieces of macaroni in 100 square feet where the daily food requirement is 5 pieces of macaroni, days are 1 minute long, and winters are 12 days long provide data that simulate survival statistics for populations using nonrenewed resources. Food density, food color, habitat vegetation density, forager experience, and level of forager competition are changed to simulate other environmental variables. Different food for different foragers and a population of predators on t
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Cranial Nerves
Examination of the baby's cranial nerve function is often accomplished by observing spontaneous activity. During crying, facial movement (Cranial Nerve 7) is observed for fullness or asymmetry. The quality and strength of the cry is a way of looking at Cranial Nerves 9 and 10 function. Sucking and swallowing assesses Cranial Nerves 5, 7, 9, 10, and 12 because all of these cranial nerves are involved in this complex act. Eye movements (Cranial Nerves 3, 4 and 6) can be assessed by using the vesti
5.1 Introduction In this section I want to introduce Joe Penhall's play Landscape with Weapon. Having read the play several times, I must stress that it is a text that is particularly rich in ethical issues. These issues, however, are presented in a very down-to-earth way, in a very lively dialogue. I think the lesson from this is that you do not need to be in any kind of ‘formal’ situation to engage with ethics. Everyday conversation is littered with references and arguments about ethical mat

4.1 Introduction The main resource for this section is the play Last Call by Mike Walker, the play that follows Call Waiting in the BBC Radio 4 series. This is a text rich in ethical issues, and, as you will see, these include not only ‘big’ questions (concerning, for example, the deployment and use of surveillance technologies) but, interestingly, everyday issues that you or I might face in our professional practice. This is, indeed, one of the reasons why I have chosen to explore this

Getting Dirty on Mars
Getting Dirty on Mars is a fun and interactive way to introduce students to the basics of soil science. Based on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander, students will simulate what it is like to collect soil samples just like the Phoenix. By measuring for themselves many of the properties scientists use to characterize soil samples, students will be better prepared to interpret those properties as used in actual applications.
After this chapter you will be able to write labels for medicines you keep in your medicine cabinet at home.
Through numerous lessons and hands-on activities, students are introduced to the concept of an environment and the interactions within it. As they learn about natural and manmade environments, and renewable and non-renewable natural resources, they see how people use our natural resources and the many environmental issues in our world today. Students learn about solid waste and disposal, and its effects on our environment. They learn the importance of the concepts of reduce, reuse, recycle and c
Vascular Surgery Patient Success Story: Daniel Hutzell
Daniel Hutzell had been a diabetic for over 40 years, which led to a number of complications including circulatory issues. He recently developed severe pain in his left calf, making it impossible for him to walk more than a few blocks. At the time, he was also recovering from a kidney-pancreas transplant that he had 12 months earlier at UMMC. Daniel decided to seek treatment from Dr. Rajabrata Sarkar, who decided that he needed an angioplasty and stents in his left thigh. After the surgery, Dan

Gait Exam: Normal Exam: Station
The patient should be able to stand still with her feet less then shoulder width apart. 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 examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localizes the disease when present. Instead of simply memorizing the components of the exam, a logical and systematic approach to problem sol
