Ross N. Berkes Interview
The late Ross N. Berkes, professor emeritus and director of the USC School of International Relations from 1949 to 1976, discusses his life and career, including the more than 30 years he spent at the University of Southern California. A Navy veteran and a Trojan alumnus as well as a respected educator, Berkes helped build the USC School of International Relations from a small, parochial program into one with national stature. Berkes was interviewed by Paul E. Hadley on October 13, 2000, as pa
Basics of Space Flight - Gravitation and Mechanics
In any solar system, planets move in orbits around a star, bound to it by gravitation. Orbital paths are elliptical in shape. Users can explore concepts such as gravitational force, the properties of ellipses, Newton's principles of mechanics, Kepler's laws, orbital acceleration, and tidal effects. This is part of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Basics of Space Flight training module. A glossary, dictionary of units of measure, and links to other parts of the module and to related topics ar

The intent of this course is to introduce students to basic tactics used by microbial pathogens to establish infectious diseases. As such, students should understand that most of the principles detailed in the course will be encountered several times during the next year of studies, particularly in the Infectious Diseases unit. The topics covered in this course deal selectively with important pathogens because Medical Microbiology will not be the only exposure of the student to infectious agents
Severe Storms - by StudyJams
Severe storms can really wreak some havoc on the Earth. Thunderstorms bring lightning and strong winds, but tornadoes, hurricanes, and blizzards can cause even greater destruction. Learn more about severe storms with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant images are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
1.1 Introduction In many countries play is widely viewed as an effective way in which children learn, and most curriculum outlines or frameworks make some reference to play. There is reason to think, however, that the concerted focus on raising educational standards throughout the UK has resulted in an increased emphasis on adult-led learning and a loss of ground for play as a child-led learning process, particularly in the middle years of childhood (7–11 years).

Great Zoom out of Washington, DC: The US Capitol Building
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

Optimal Organism Design and Costs for Not Being Perfect
Optimal means the best, but organisms often solve multiple problems so any one problem is not solved best. An optimal function is produced for sugar ingestion rates versus sucrose concentration through butterfly proboscides and pipets by humans. A choice experiment is performed using probing by a butterfly proboscis toward one of two concentrations of sucrose. A non-optimal system is then studied: cylindrical container designs by businesses where surface area (cost) is least when height equals d
