Sociology of health and illness
This module aims to show how health and illness although rooted in biological issues are not reducible to them. It will introduce key theories and empirical evidence to demonstrate a range of issues such as the social construction of medical power and the relationship between social inequalities and health. It will introduce students to some of the debates about medical uncertainty and the show the value of sociological critiques to medical practices.

This Math Shorts episode explains the term rotation, and provides several examples that demonstrate the concept. This video was made for the PBS Learning Media library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network. Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math Cont.8.G.A.3 ( Grade 8 ): Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
In this STELLA modeling exercise, students create a model of heat flow in the outer kilometer of Earth's crust. Then they perform experiments to change the air temperature variable in an attempt to replicate the findings of Lachenbruch and Marshall (1986) who used inflections in the geothermal gradient of Alaskan permafrost to search for evidence of recent climatic change. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provided.

PLoS Medicine aims to promote translation of basic research into clinical investigation, and of clinical evidence into practice. PLoS Medicine encourages papers that cross disciplines.
In the 1960s, lottery-like contests designed to publicize products through sweepstakes competitions spread rapidly. In the 19th century, every state banned lotteries--defined as competitions in which chances to win prizes were sold÷to protect citizens. In 1868, Congress prohibited the distribution of lottery materials through the mail. The mid-20th century sweepstakes, however, did not require contestants to purchase tickets or products to win prizes and were thus considered legal. In 1966, the
The Pelican Web & E-Journal There is overwhelming evidence that violence is the main obstacle to sustainable development. It is also well known that there is an intrinsic link between patriarchy and violence. Therefore, mitigating violence requires overcoming the patriarchal mindset in both secular and religious institutions. The mission of "The Pelican Web" is to collect and analyze knowledge on patriarchy-induced obstacles to sustainable development, and to publish the free subscription, ope
What does it mean to be an American? Far from being a fixed concept, over the past 150 years American identity has been constructed and reconstructed through the conflicts, interchanges, and negotiations between different ethnic, cultural, and religious groups. In this course, we will pay particular attention to two major transformations in American identity: the shift from a conception of citizenship grounded on race to one grounded on shared democratic ideals; and the development of the United
Vinegar is an acid. An acid has a pH less than 7. When baking soda is added to vinegar, bubbles are produced and gas is released. Fizzing, bubbling, and change in smell are all evidence of a chemical reaction. The amount of gas produced using baking soda as an indicator tells you the relative concentration ...
At week 1, evidence of earthworm decomposition is not present.
At week 4, evidence of earthworm decomposition is beginning to show. The earthworm is eating the dead material and releasing smaller forms of matter into the container.
