Temperature of the Gulf Stream
This site Presents a MODIS (Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) image of the Gulf Stream. The image is color-coded to show the variation in temperature of the ocean water. A brief description of the Gulf Stream, its direction and speed, and a link to other related imagery are included.

A Look At Books
We have many books all around us. More and more books are being made all the time. Have you wondered what it takes to make a book?
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Reflexes - Deep Tendon Reflexes
It is hard to get the baby relaxed and cooperative enough to get the limb in the optimal position for obtaining deep tendon reflexes. At this age, all the deep tendon reflexes tested in an adult exam should be obtainable. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 12 Month Old: Normal: Motor/Coordination - Play Ball
The infant plays the simple game of throw the ball. His throw is not an overhand throw which is seen in an 18 month old but rather a pushing away and dropping type of throw that is typical for this age. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
Human Brain Atlas: Brain (Oblique) - Image Map
Nine slides of the anatomical structures of the brain are mapped in this image from the UCLA Interactive Neurosciences Human Brain Atlas.
Sensory Exam: Normal Exam: Light Touch
Light touch (thigmesthesia) is used as a screening test for touch. Both the spinothalamic and DCML systems serve this sensation so it is not specific for either one. A cotton tip applicator or fine hair brush is used. Select areas from different dermatomes and peripheral nerves and compare right versus left. 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 s
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tremor
Patient's arms are held outstretched and fingers extended. Watch for postural or essential tremor. 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 the components of the exam, a logical and systematic approach to
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tandem Gait
The patient is asked to walk heel-to-toe. Note steadiness. Tandem gait requires the patient to narrow the station and maintain balance over a 4-5 inch width. Patients with midline ataxias have difficulty with tandem gait. 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 localiz

Progression of Hurricane Charley, 2004 (WMS)
Hurricane Charley was the first of four hurricanes to hit the United States in 2004.
El Nino Sea Surface Temperature, Height, and Wind Anomaly Onionskin: January 1997 through December 1
El Nino sea surface temperature, height, and wind anomalies in the Pacific for January 1997 through December 1997. The data sets are added one layer at a time, followed by a zoom into the eastern Pacific. (Wind anomalies stop at October 1997)
Christie Clark gets serenaded for Earth Day
Students from University Highlands elementary school performed an Earth Day song for B.C. premier Christy Clark in the Djavad Mowafaghian Courtyard at Blusson Hall. BC premier Christy Clark was at SFU Burnaby to announce funding for a new neighbourhood energy utility on Burnaby Mountain. This district energy system will provide heat for the whole campus plus future homes in the UniverCity sustainable community. It will also replace SFU's aging boilers and help reduce 80 per cent of the school's

All month long, in honor of Colon Cancer awareness, Dr. Raju, in the department of Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition, is answering colonoscopy questions on facebook via video from his computer here at MD Anderson.
Global Warming 101
Global warming could do more than just melt polar ice. It could change our maps, and displace people from cities and tropical islands. (03:05)
What the Ancients Knew: City in the Hillside
This 1:25 video tells of how the ancient cultures built a city in the hillside using geometry to lay out the grid so that it could be easier to live in during the seasons. This same system is used in many cities today. The video could be used to show the use of geometry in daily life.
