Topics: the nature of clinical data; architecture and design of healthcare information systems; privacy and security issues; medical expertsystems; introduction to bioinformatics. Case studies and guest lectures describe contemporary systems and research projects. Term project using large clinica
EE 120 - Lecture 17 - Signals and Systems
Structure and Interpretation of Systems and Signals - Spring 2007. This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling techniques used in the design of electronic systems. An important keyword here is "mathematical." Subjects we will cover include continous and discrete signals, with applications to audio, images, video, communications, and control; State-based models, beginning with automata and evolving to LTI systems; Frequency domain models for signals and frequency response for systems,
Erythemal Index for August 2000 through July 2001: Slow Rotating Globe
The Erythemal Index is a measure of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at ground level on the Earth. UV exists to the left of the visible spectrum and is divided into three components (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C). UV-B (290-320 wavelengths) is the most dangerous form of UV radiation that can reach ground level. Atmospheric ozone shields life at the surface from most of the harmful components of solar radiation. Chemical processes in the atmosphere can effect the level of protection provided by the ozone in the
Blood Cell Basics
Students will make a proportional model of blood out of red gelatin, a plastic bag, and rice. They will learn about the different components that make up blood and will investigate what happens when the arteries and veins experience buildup from cholesterol. They will then work in pairs to brainstorm ways to clean our clogged arteries.
Students form expert engineering teams working for the (fictional) alternative energy consulting firm, Greenewables, Inc. Each team specializes in a form of renewable energy used to generate electrical power: passive solar, solar photovoltaic, wind power, low-impact hydropower, biomass, geothermal and (for more advanced students) hydrogen fuel cells. Teams produce poster presentations making a case for their technology and produce an accompanying PDF document using Adobe Acrobat that summarizes
Navigating at the Speed of Satellites
For thousands of years, navigators have looked to the sky for direction. Today, celestial navigation has simply switched from using natural objects to human-created satellites. A constellation of satellites, called the Global Positioning System, and hand-held receivers allow for very accurate navigation. In this lesson, students investigate the fundamental concepts of GPS technology trilateration and using the speed of light to calculate distances.

SeaWiFS Views the Whole World with Three Years of Data
By monitoring the color of reflected light via satellite, scientists can determine how successfully plant life is photosynthesizing. A measurement of photosynthesis is essentially a measurement of successful growth, and growth means successful use of ambient carbon. Until now, scientists have only had a continuous record of photosynthesis on land. But following three years of continual data collected by the SeaWiFS instrument, NASA has gathered the first record of photosynthetic productivity in

Elizabeth I - Documentary Part 15
Elizabeth decides not to marry the Duke of Anjou. She ended up paying him a lot of money before he left England. In the Netherlands, in 1584, Elizabeth ally, William of Orange, was killed. She prepared her army. Robert Dudly led the army and did no obey Elizabeth's orders. In England, Mary of Scots was jailed in a more serious way, isolated. Walsingham plotted a conspiracy to find proof against Mary. She sent letters to Babingtom to organize a plot against Elizabeth and Walsingham had access to
The Metropolitan Revolution: perspectives from US cities [Audio]
Speaker(s): Bruce Katz, Professor Anne Power | Bruce Katz will explain how ground-up innovations at a city level are solving the toughest economic problems in the US, while Anne Power will reflect on the relevance of these developments on UK cities. Bruce Katz is the author of The Metropolitan Revolution, vice president of the Brookings Institution and founding director of the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program. Anne Power is professor of social policy at LSE.
1.018J Ecology I: The Earth System (MIT)
We will cover fundamentals of ecology, considering Earth as an integrated dynamic system. Topics include coevolution of the biosphere, geosphere, atmosphere and oceans; photosynthesis and respiration; the hydrologic, carbon and nitrogen cycles. We will examine the flow of energy and materials through ecosystems; regulation of the distribution and abundance of organisms; structure and function of ecosystems, including evolution and natural selection; metabolic diversity; productivity; trophic dyn
