Your Weight on Other Worlds
You may have heard that the moon has less gravity than the earth does. Does that mean you weigh less?
You are going to be learning all about Biomes of the world! Biomes are large areas on Earth where certain types of plants grow. The ocean biome, for example, is made up of all the oceans on Earth. The climate, type of soil, and animals are all part of a biome.

Multiple Sclerosis - Sensory Exam - Cortical (Integrative) Sub-exam - Patient 20
Janie is a 39-year-old Caucasian female who initially presented with weakness and L'Hermitte’s phenomena at the age of 35. Initially mistaken as a TIA, MRI of the brain revealed numerous plaques in the white matter suggesting Multiple Sclerosis. Her lumbar puncture initially failed to demonstrate the presence of oligoclonal bands, but since progression of the disease over the past few years bands have developed.

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
Terrorism, Peace, and Other Inconsistencies
This course addresses a set of inter-related questions that have become central to peace and security in the modern era, at both the domestic and international levels. What is the history and rationale for contemporary terrorism, including suicide terrorism? What does the rise of al-Qaeda terror mean for a host of problematic issues including the relationship between the Western and Islamic worlds, the future of peace in the Middle East, the future of various western foreign policy actions? What

Is man's fate tied to the Red Planet? Scientists debate the future of space exploration.
Small Regulatory RNAs May Sharpen Spatial Expression Patterns
The precise establishment of gene expression patterns is a crucial step in development. Formation of a sharp boundary between high and low spatial expression domains requires a genetic mechanism that exhibits sensitivity, yet is robust to fluctuations, a demand that may not be easily achieved by morphogens alone. Recently, it has been demonstrated that small RNAs (and, in particular, microRNAs) play many roles in embryonic development. Whereas some RNAs are essential for embryogenesis, others ar
Deer are unusual because they are mammals but they don't make tracks with paw-shaped marks. Deer walk on hooves, and these hooves make different tracks than paws do.
A Conversation on Leadership
Her “journey to the top” is one that “could only happen in the United States of America,” says Ursula Burns, describing her rise from New York City projects to the apex of corporate leadership at Xerox. For an eager audience of management students, Burns also highlights lessons from her early years and 30-year career.

The closure meeting The final meeting is a time for celebrating successful completion. It could have a similar format to the launch meeting, and involve many of the same people. It might include: reviewing the outputs or outcomes; confirming the arrangements for any follow-up work; thanking the team, the sponsor(s) and the stakeholders for their support; presenting the completion report for approval and sign-off.

"Literary Interpretation: Literature and Urban Experience, Spring 2009"
" Alienation, overcrowding, sensory overload, homelessness, criminality, violence, loneliness, sprawl, blight. How have the realities of city living influenced literature's formal and thematic techniques? How useful is it to think of literature as its own kind of "map" of urban space? Are cities too grand, heterogeneous, and shifting to be captured by writers? In this seminar we will seek answers to these questions in key city literature, and in theoretical works that endeavor to understand the
