Guatemala's Holtun or "Head of Stone"
An archaeological team co-led by archaeologist Brigitte Kovacevich of Southern Methodist University will begin excavation in summer 2011 at the early Maya site "Head of Stone" in the Central Lakes region of Guatemala. New 3-D topographical surveys have confirmed the size and location of more than 100 buildings buried beneath centuries of foliage. See http://www.smuresearch.com to learn more.
Recent studies suggest that, as in other aging syndromes, the Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome is due to a defect in the mechanism of DNA repair. Mutations have been found in the Lamin A gene (LMNA) situated on chromosome 1.

Automotive Drum Brakes
Do you know when the first car was built? Do you know who built the first automobile? Would you guess, Henry Ford? Try again. Do you know by what means they used to stop that car? We know the brakes on the vehicles we drive today are quite different from those back in the 1800s. While knowing the history of the automobile is interesting, knowing how they work is also interesting. The automotive brake or to be more specific, the drum brake is what this instruction is designed to review. In this i

Cleaner Fossil Fuels
Reduction of carbon emissions and enhancement of national energy security are desirable goals. Discussions of how to realize these goals` however` generate a lot of heated debate – not all of it illuminating. An accelerated switch to renewable energy may seem like a logical push` yet the vastness of the global energy system is such that even the most optimistic scenarios for development of renewables are not going to bring about a cleaner atmosphere fast enough. Therefore` additional technolog

PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Abnormal: Cranial Nerves
The baby has full conjugate eye movements. The face has a bland appearance, but tickling the feet produces a full grimace and facial muscles are normal. The baby's cry is not high pitched but is softer and not as sustained as one would expect. (The baby has a poor suck, which is demonstrated in the primitive reflex section the exam.) 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 impor
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

Scientists throughout the world are increasingly interested in the relationship between science and society. Part of their concern is with the social responsibilities scientists have in relation to broader public interests. That raises important issues to do with the ethical and social dimension of scientists' work and how scientists explain – and perhaps justify – their work to the wider public.
