Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Hand - Rapid Alternating Movements
Finger tapping, wrist rotation and front-to-back hand patting. Watch for the rapidity and rhythmical performance of the movements noting any right-left disparity. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localizes the disease when present. Instead of simply memorizing t
Students are introduced to the basics of the Earth's weather. Concepts include fundamental causes of common weather phenomena such as temperature changes, wind, clouds, rain and snow. The different factors that affect the weather and the instruments that measure weather data are also addressed.
Essays on Wage Inequality: the Role of Composition, Immigration and the Cost-of-living
This thesis focuses on the role of composition, immigration and the cost-of-living on wage inequality. I begin by investigating to what extent changing characteristics of the labour force can help explain the fact that residual or within-group wage inequality –wage dispersion among workers with the same education and experience- is generally thought to account for most of the growth in wage inequality observed in several industrialised countries over the last thirty years. I compare

Students explore pollination using two exercises: an ant- and a butterfly-activity. In the ant-exercise, students generate hypotheses for why reports of ant pollination are rare, test one or more hypothesis, and present their findings. In addition to this open-ended inquiry investigation, instructions are also provided for a structured activity in which students germinate pollen and test whether ant-secretions inhibit pollen growth as has been proposed in the scientific literature. In the butter
