Implementation guidelines: ACE School Management and Leadership (PDF)
This manual provides an overview of the design and expected delivery of the new programme. The key focus of the ACE (School Management and Leadership) programme is to facilitate real transformation in schools that is grounded in recognition of the challenges of particular contexts and the values underpinning the South African Constitution. Principals and would-be principals must understand that it is not acceptable simply to pay lip service to the ideas presented in the programme, to develop pol
Insects and ecosystems
Insects of the Class Insecta are the most diverse group of organisms. Insects eat green plants and other insects and are called omnivores. Insects, toads, mice, and spiders eat insects.
Sectional and Radiological Anatomy of the Thorax
This is an interactive tutorial that serves as an introduction to normal x-rays and cross-sections of the thorax for preclinical students enrolled in medical and dental human structure. The courseware was digitized and converted into Adobe Flash to provide beginners with introductory imaging that is critical to the interpretation of standard X-rays and CT- and MRI-scans. Its objective is to stimulate active self-directed learning by integrating introductory radiographic anatomy and into a struct
This animation (start by clicking on image) demonstrates protein translation in the context of a ribosome. One tRNA at a time is grabbed, to incorporate each amino acid into the growing polypeptide. Amino acids are depicted as spheres, RNAs as lines, and ribosomal subunits as ovals.
Cría cuervos (1975) - extract
A subtle indictment of the family as a repressive force in Spanish society, Cría cuervos centres on an eight-year-old orphan who believes she has poisoned her authoritarian father. In this scene, the young characters dance to Porque te vas, a song which director Carlos Saura insisted on using throughout Cría cuervos, despite the film producers and actress Geraldine Chaplin advising against it.
STS-134 Memorial Day Message
STS-134 Pilot Greg Johnson and Mission Specialist Andrew Feustel send a Memorial Day message from the International Space Station's Kibo laboratory.
Regulation of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular Axis
Guide questions - How do the hypothalamus, anterior pituitary and testes interact to regulate testicular function? How does GnRH regulate the pituitary in males? How does inhibin regulate the pituitary in males? How does testosterone regulate the hypothalamus in males? What other hormonal, neurogenic and psychogenic factors regulate the hypothalamic-pituitary unit in males? University of Cincinnati College of Medicine Reproductive Physiology Modules: Part 5.1.3.
Cranial Nerve Exam: Normal Exam: Cranial Nerve 2 - Visual Fields
There are several different screening tests that can be used to assess visual fields at the bedside. First hold up both hands superiorly and inferiorly and ask the patient if they can see both hands and do they look symmetric. Then test each eye individually using your fingers in the four quadrants of the visual field and ask the patient to count fingers held up or point to the hand when a finger wiggles using yourself as a control. A second screening test is to use a grid card. Have the patient
El Nino Zoom to Sea Surface Temperature and Height Anomaly on a Globe: January 1997 through December
An animation of sea surface temperature and sea surface height anomalies in the Pacific Ocean for the period January 1997 through December 1997. The data is shown on a globe and the point of view moves from showing a full globe to showing a close up of the equatorial Pacific near South America.
Case study - BCGBC4005A Produce labour and material schedules for ordering
An activity that addresses the critical aspects of assessment for the competency BCGBC4005A Produce labour and material schedules for ordering. This activity could be used as an assessment tool for this competency.
After watching this brief interchange over a chessboard, please write what you think the dialogue is for the two players.
El Nino-La Nina Sea Surface Temperature, Height, and Wind Anomalies: January 1997 through November 1
An animation of sea surface temperature, height, and wind anomalies in the Pacific for January 1997 through November 1998. (Wind anomalies stop at October 1998.)

Grund für die Verspätung war, dass der Iran kurzfristig die bereits erteilte Überfluggenehmigung zurückzog. Die Gründe dafür sind
Gonadal Sex Determination
Depicts chromosomal and gonadal sex determination. Guide questions - What is the critical "switch" gene for sexual differentiation and where is it normally located? What are the anatomical precursors of the gonads? What is the role of the Y-chromosome in determining gonadal sex? What is the sequence of molecular events that determines whether the paired bipotential gonads differentiate into either ovaries or testes?

NeuroLogic Exam: Introduction: Window to the Brain
Anatomy and pathology of the nervous system is understood by directly visualizing it. This is best accomplished by handling the brain (or model of the brain as the case may be) and dissecting or taking it apart for direct examination. The purpose (for the clinician) of understanding neuroanatomy and neurophysiology is to be able to use that knowledge to solve clinical problems. The first step in solving a clinical problem is anatomical localization. So, if one cannot directly inspect the patient
