PediNeuroLogic Exam: 2 1/2 Years Old: Fine Motor/Coordination - Using Measuring Tape
A measuring tape can also be used to test coordination. As the girl reaches for the tip of the tape to pull it out and has to extend the arm to reach the target, she is being tested for dysmetria. Having her manipulate the tape measure and work the control button is testing hand coordination. The examiner tries to get her to click the button but she doesn't do it.

Delivering Food Assistance in a Shrinking Humanitarian Space [Audio]
Speaker(s): Ertharin Cousin | Conflict and insecurity present a growing challenge to humanitarian agencies as they strive to reach those in need of food assistance. Access is vital if lives are going to be saved and children are to be given the nutritional support they need to thrive. In a world of increasingly complex emergencies, shifting allegiances and fluid frontlines, there is an even greater risk that some communities may be left beyond the reach of the agencies that are there to help.

No part of Ireland completely escaped the impact of the glaciers of the Ice Age. The glaciers transformed the contours of the island and left behind a landscape of craggy mountains, steep gorges, and vast networks of inland waterways. In this video segment from Nature, viewers learn about this part of Ireland's geological past. (01:13)
Antarctic Ice Movement
With more than 29 million cubic kilometers (7 million cubic miles) of ice and snow, the Antarctic Ice Sheet is so massive that its weight depresses the underlying crust by 900 meters (nearly 3,000 feet). New snow that collects on the ice sheet's surface causes the ice beneath it to spread out and move along the slope of the land. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, a team of glaciologists carves into one glacier on the East Sheet to monitor the nature and speed of its movement. Closed capti
Forming the Burren in Ireland
The weight and movement of glaciers of the Ice Age has shaped about one-third of the Earth's landmass. Glacial movement formed rolling hills, carved out valleys and created a rich variety of landforms. The Burren in Ireland is one of the finest examples of landscape shaped by glaciation. Learn more about the Burren in this brief video segment from Nature. Run time 0:40.
