Live Camera Feed of Eagles in Nest
If it is dusk or evening, the viewer may NOT see anything at that time. Obviously, viewing during the day is best. NOTE: Scroll down slightly for camera feed. This is a live feed to an 'Eagle Cam' that shows eagles in their next. Since this is a live feed, there is no 'run time'. The live camera feed is on Duke Farms in New Jersey. Did you know that Bald eagle numbers have soared from only one breeding pair in 1973 to over 90 today because of
Television - Conversation Topic

Are You Balanced?
One of the most basic money management skills that everyone needs to know is how to maintain and balance (reconcile) their checkbook. Why then are there so many people who don't know how?
Primary Lateral Sclerosis - Cranial Nerves Exam - Facial Nerve (CN VII) Sub-exam - Patient 14
This video features a 54-year-old white male who presented for evaluation of progressive spastic paraparesis. He stated that symptoms first started in 1997 when "things were different with my legs" (i.e., leg weakness, imbalance, and speech problems). Symptoms started in his left foot, when he couldn't keep time to music. His feet started dragging and he also noticed problems with balance. In 1999, he started falling and sought medical attention. He was diagnosed with spastic paraparesis after
Biochemical Analysis of Vertebrate Skeletal Systems
This exercise was developed to look at the structure-function relationship in the skeletal system as it explores motion and force on evolution of the system.
Slowing the Flow
In this hands-on OLogy activity, kids learn how the mammalian diving reflex works to help both land and sea mammals survive in cold water. The activity begins with a kid-friendly look at the way all mammals' bodies respond similarly when exposed to cold water. The illustrated, step-by-step directions show kids how to test the effect cold water has on their circulation by measuring their pulse before and after they plunge their faces into icy water. It includes a fast fact about how the mammalian
In this hands-on OLogy activity, kids learn how camouflage allows flounders to blend into a variety of backgrounds. The activity begins with a kid-friendly look at animal camouflage and how chromatophores contain colors, or pigments, that can change the skin's appearance. The illustrated, step-by-step directions challenge kids first to color a flounder drawing so that it matches the provided background, and then to create their own backgrounds and make more drawings of camouflaged flounders.
Tommaso Treu and Mike Shara Discuss Super Massive Black Holes
Mike Shara, curator in the Department of Astrophysics at the American Museum of Natural History, sat down with Tommaso Treu, physics professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, to discuss the importance of understanding super massive black holes and dark matter at the 217th American Astronomical Society meeting in Seattle, Washington. Treu also explained how he came to work in this specialized field. For more information, visit http://www.amnh.org
Data-driven Traffic Modeling, Prediction, and Planning

Symmetries and Their Properties-Part 1: Rotational Symmetry
This is the first i-Math in a four-part series of i-Maths entitled Symmetries and Their Properties. In this first i-Math you will investigate rotational symmetry. Fix a center, turn, and you have a rotation. Many objects in nature—flowers, starfish, and crystals—and objects we use every day, such as wheels, CDs, and drinking glasses, have rotational symmetry. Here, you will learn about the mathematical properties of rotations and have an opportunity to make your own designs.
A process for technical problem solving is introduced and applied to a fun demonstration. Given the success with the demo, the iterative nature of the process can be illustrated.
