Social Responsibility: The relation between law and education.
The purpose of the present article is to discuss the new parameters of social responsibility associated with the knowledge earned from the study about the relation between law and education. For this, we will consider the implantations of a social program in Brazil. It is an intervention research
Greece default - not if but when!
Acclaimed economist and commentator Professor Paul Krugman expects the Greek government to default on its enormous debts and would not be surprised, in the aftermath, if the country withdraws from the Euro.

Bend, Twist and Break: Beyond the Laboratory
Dr. Chris Muhlstein explains that when scientists study fracture surfaces from controlled experiments to understand the resulting shapes and features, they can use their understanding to deduce what happened when they were not around to see the material fail or break. Further they can predict what will have to a larger or smaller piece of material under stress. This process is how scientists and engineers translate a lab experiment into a design for an airplane, bridge or even a bike frame.
OER Rubrics | Achieve.org
Open Educational Resources (OER) offer opportunities for increasing equity and access to high-quality K–12 education. Many state education agencies now have offices devoted to identifying and using OERs and other digital resources in their states. To help states, districts, teachers, and other users determine the degree of alignment of OERs to the Common Core State Standards, and to determine aspects of quality of OERs, Achieve has developed eight rubrics in collaboration with leaders from the

Preparation and Presentation of Biology Laboratory Class Materials Through WebCT
An introduction to optimizing materials for web presentation: postscripting to PDF, animated graphics, still graphics, font type and size. These materials, among others, are used to demonstrate the creation of a WebCT course site. WebCT is a server-based course management software application. Through a very specific (and thoroughly, yet simply explained) set of steps, faculty place html, text files, graphics files, etc. into what is essentially an on-line course. That 'course' allows you to pla
French flotilla ship leaves Crete
The French ship Dignite, part of the Freedom flotilla heading to Gaza, is allowed to leave a Greek port. Sunita Rappai reports.
This lesson begins with an activity in which students induce EMF in a coil of wire using magnetic fields. Then, demonstrations on Eddy currents show how a magnetic field can slow magnets just as Eddy currents are used to slow large trains. There is then a demonstration in which a loop "jumps" because of a changing magnetic field. Finally, formal lecture reviews the cross product with respect to magnetic force and introduces magnetic flux, Faraday's law of Induction, Lenz's Law, Eddy currents, mo
"Signals and Systems, Spring 2010"
"6.003 covers the fundamentals of signal and system analysis, focusing on representations of discrete-time and continuous-time signals (singularity functions, complex exponentials and geometrics, Fourier representations, Laplace and Z transforms, sampling) and representations of linear, time-invariant systems (difference and differential equations, block diagrams, system functions, poles and zeros, convolution, impulse and step responses, frequency responses). Applications are drawn broadly from

Phoebe - 60 Second Impressions, Further Education Summer School
We are keen to encourage more students at FE colleges to apply to Cambridge and organise specific open days, free summer schools, and other events to enable these students to learn more about studying here. The FE Summer School is for students aged 16-19 currently studying at Further Education colleges in the UK. It offers a taste of university life and the wide variety of courses available to study at Cambridge. The Summer School includes lectures, practical work and social activities, and par
The Milky Way Galaxy
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they learn about the Milky Way galaxy, including the following :The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy, and our Sun is located in one of its spinning arms. At the speed of light, it would take you 25,000 years to reach the middle of the Milky Way. The force of gravity keeps everything in our galaxy from flying off into space. There are two other types of galaxies, elliptical and irregu
