Child Labor and Environmental Health: Governmental Obligations and Human Rights
This article is a discussion of the roles that governments, international human rights groups, the private sector, and media play, and should play, in reducing the numbers of children working in hazardous occupations around the world. This is especially in consideration of the fact that 174 countries have ratified the Convention concerning the Prohibition and Immediate Action for the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour. Two investigations of child labour abuses are highlighted, one in

8.591J Systems Biology (MIT)
This course introduces the mathematical modeling techniques needed to address key questions in modern biology. An overview of modeling techniques in molecular biology and genetics, cell biology and developmental biology is covered. Key experiments that validate mathematical models are also discussed, as well as molecular, cellular, and developmental systems biology, bacterial chemotaxis, genetic oscillators, control theory and genetic networks, and gradient sensing systems. Additional specific t

The Art of Teaching the Arts: Fostering Genuine Communication
Arts teachers communicate with students, and students communicate with each other, in respectful ways that encourage communication of original ideas through the arts. In this session, participants meet a dance teacher whose students draw choreographic inspiration from poetry and sign language. A visual art teacher gives her commercial art class a fanciful assignment that enables them to communicate a concrete idea through several visual media. A theatre teacher encourages student interaction aro
The Unity of Living Systems
All cellular organisms — prokaryotic and eukaryotic — share basic chemical similarities. Out of these similarities, however, emerge diverse patterns of cell assembly. Students encounter the tools to understand various cell types and their relationship to noncell entities such as viruses.
Recent genetic techniques have led to new theories of evolution and the relationships between organisms. Students examine this "evolution revolution," using molecular sequences to trace the phylogenetic relationships of microbial life. Both the big picture of microbial evolution and the methods necessary for determining molecular phylogenies are examined.
In certain situations, microbial control is a necessity. For instance, our food system requires sanitary conditions and hospitals require sterilization techniques. Here we see the options available for various levels of microbial control.
