2. Introductory Lecture
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) The trial of Adolf Eichmann, as presented in Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem, is the topic of discussion. Professor Shapiro asks students what made them uncomfortable, not only about Eichmann's actions as a Nazi officer, but also the actions of Israel in capturing, extraditing, trying, and executing him. This begs the questions, what makes a government legitimate? And more specifically, was the Third Reich illegitimate and was Eichmann breaking som

Article :: Creating High Dynamic Range Images in a Snap with HDR Express
High Dynamic Range (or HDR) photographs have an “image problem,” if you’ll pardon the pun. Aside from the assumption that all HDR images have an unnatural, painterly quality to them (not so!), there is also the perception that it is difficult to create HDR photos. Photoshop master Dan Moughamian presents the first in a series that will show you nothing could be further from the truth: that HDR images can in fact be both realistic and carry an added element of drama or beauty.
7.1 Sharing the project As we have seen, the execution of a project may depend on the involvement and co-operation of several departments or functions within an organisation. If this is the case, then, for it to succeed, they must be prepared to share ownership of the project, be willing to work together to help the project achieve its objectives and be happy to release adequate resources when appropriate. The project manager and their team therefore have to create and maintain good relationships with all interested

5.4 The meaning of meaning
How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.
Defense against predators (adaptations)
Many organisms are in a constant predator-prey relationship with other organisms in nature. Over time, prey species develop specialized structures or behaviors to help them better survive against predation. This is called an adaptation.
Use of the Rabbit Intestine in Smooth Muscle Pharmacology Experiments: A New Approach
This exercise is suitable for general physiology or zoology teaching laboratories.
Water and Solute Movement Through Red Blood Cell Membranes
This resource is a detailed laboratory exercise suitable for undergraduate laboratory courses in biochemistry, physiology and cell biology. It includes detailed background information and student outlines, instructors notes, and suggested anaylses.
Spot-Overlay Ames Test of Potential Mutagens
This protocol represents a cost-effective modification of the Ames Test that allows students to investigate the mutagenic potential of various common substances. Potential mutagens are tested using well-characterized auxotrophic strains of Salmonella typhimurium. By analyzing the results, students determine if any of their compounds may be mutagenic. Follow-up experiments are designed to determine the dose response of these potential mutagens. Using this protocol, we have achieved reproducible r
Variability and Selection in Natural Populations of Wood Lice
This resource is a detailed manual of protocols and instructional information for carrying out an undergraduate laboratory exercise in evolution, including student outlines, pre-lab questions, post-lab questions, instructors notes, and suggested questions for laboratory reports.
Using Dermatoglyphics from Down Syndrome and Class Populations to Study the Genetics of a complex tr
Dermatoglyphics is the study of epidermal ridges on the hands and feet. Ridge patterns and counts develop prenatally, are inherited, and show quantitative variation. This exercise introduces the preparation and interpretation of finger and palm prints for quantitative analysis. The techniques are simple, inexpensive, and can be adapted as an exercise on genetics for beginning or advanced students. Palm prints from individuals with Down Syndrome serve as a population sample to statistically test
Lighting Up: Analysis Of Yeast RAS Genes Using A Chemiluminescent Southern Blot Procedure
Genomic and plasmid-encoded RAS2 genes from Baker's and brewing yeast strains will be analyzed using a shortened Southern blot procedure employing chemiluminescence. Unique parts of this procedure are the gravity-driven "upside down" transfer and a rotisserie-like hybridization oven, which greatly facilitate shortening the transfer time to 45 minutes and the hybridization step to 60 minutes. Chemiluminescence obviates problems associated with radioisotopes without sacrificing sensitivity: the pl
Surface Irrigation Design
This course was originally developed for the United States Department of Agriculture. It contains nearly 20 video lecture presentations with accompanying slides in English, Arabic, and French, an online textbook, homework assignments, and downloadable surface irrigation simulation software also developed by Dr. Walker. This course highlights design and evaluation of surface irrigation systems, field measurements for evaluating and improving uniformity and efficiency, simulation of surface system
Mentor school managers and manage mentoring programmes in schools: ACE School Management and Leaders
This module aims at empowering school managers and teachers to develop and implement appropriate mentoring programmes. The learning guide of this module addresses three key questions as follows: What is mentoring? What are the personal and professional qualities of effective mentors? How can we managing the establishment, monitoring and evaluation of a school mentoring programme?
Navigating by the Numbers
In this lesson, students will learn that math is important in navigation and engineering. Ancient land and sea navigators started with the most basic of navigation equations (Speed x Time = Distance). Today, navigational satellites use equations that take into account the relative effects of space and time. However, even these high-tech wonders cannot be built without pure and simple math concepts basic geometry and trigonometry that have been used for thousands of years. In this lesson, these b
