Pediatricans are trained to treat infants, children, and teens. Regular check-ups are done by them to make sure that the young patient is growing at a proper rate and search for signs of diseases. All doctors must finish college and 4 years of medical school. Then, they complete 3-8 years of training (residency), depending on their specialty. Physicians must continue training throughout their careers, keeping up with medical advances. This two minute video has a script and shows a pediatrician a

By making and testing simple balloon rockets, students acquire a basic understanding of Newton’s third law of motion as it applies to rockets. Using balloons, string, straws and tape, they see how rockets are propelled by expelling gases, and test their rockets in horizontal and incline conditions. They also learn about the many types of engineers who design rockets and spacecraft.
3.1 Categorising texts: introduction Whether we are producing, analysing or consuming texts, one of the principal ways in which we make them meaningful is by considering what type of text we are dealing with. This helps to identify appropriate codes so we do not try to make meanings by calling on unsuitable frames of reference by, for example, analysing the items in a gossip magazine as if they had been subject to exhaustive checking for verifiable facts. There are many ways to categorise texts, a few of which are examined next.

Minnesota study looks at new Best Buy work environment
New research from the University of Minnesota finds that a workplace environment that allows employees to change when and where they work, based on their individual needs and job responsibilities, positively affects the work-family interface and reduces turnover. Kelly and Moen base their findings on data from surveys of more than 600 employees and company records from Minnesota-based Best Buy before and after the implementation of a so-called "Results Only Work Environment" (ROWE) workplace in
Future Spacecraft and the Hunt for Habitable Planets
The Hunt for Habitable Planets - Professor Ian Morison discusses one of the hottest topics in astronomy: detecting other solar systems. The methods by which this has been achieved so far have yet to detect an earth-like planet, but already a miniature version of our solar system has been discovered. How do these discoveries affect the prospects for life elsewhere? (06:17)

Food Webs: Frogs
Frogs eat insects, and frogs are in turn eaten by larger animals such as birds. Frogs hibernate, or more correctly, they estivate. During estivation, frogs lowers their body temperatures in cold weather and go into a kind of dormancy. Frogs can "migrate" in that they move across land to find ponds and water sources.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Tone - Hand Position
A newborn baby's hand is held in a fisted position with the fingers flexed over the thumb. The hand should open intermittently and should not always be held in a tight fisted position. Rubbing the ulnar aspect of the hand or touching the dorsum of the hand will often cause extension of the fingers. Over the first 1 to 2 months of life, the baby's hand becomes more open. Persistence of a fisted hand is a sign of an upper motor neuron lesion in an infant. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those
