Review of Barriers to Engaging Black and Minority Ethnic Groups in Physical Activity in the United K
The article looks at the lower physical activity levels in Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) groups as compared with general population in the United Kingdom (UK) could relate to barriers to engaging these groups in physical activity. Hence, the aim to conduct a review to examine UK primary studies reporting barriers to engaging BME groups in physical activity. Method: This is a narrative review of literature from 1970 to 2008. The search looked for English literature from five bibliographic datab
Explore size estimation in one, two and three dimensions! Multiple levels of difficulty allow for progressive skill improvement.

9.70 Social Psychology (MIT)
Our conjoint participation in the 9.70 learning system places us in a consensually-shared social situation. (All of the foregoing words are important. Do you understand their meaning in this context?) We will endeavor to organize ourselves into a community of discourse that approximates (albeit in an altogether partial way) a meaningful, real-world research enterprise: Like all scientific communities, we will work with limited resources. Unlike "real" scientific communities, ours will operate un
China’s Africa Policy
In 2009, China overtook the U.S. as Africa’s prime trade partner. It happened because China substituted the export of revolution for development at home. Mao died with few friends. Now China has many.
Rainbow Wave Clouds / Iridescent Cirrus Forming in Timelapse
These interesting clouds were filmed over Santa Clarita, California in February of 2012. They were forming along with a large lenticular-like cirrus wave structure, about an hour or so before sunset, and provided some very colorful displays. Rainbow effects in the sky are normally caused by water droplets or ice crystals in the atmosphere, which separate and bend different light wavelengths (colors) and send them in different directions as sunlight passes through them. Students will en

Viewing the Periodic Table of the Elements with X-rays
X-rays and x-ray fluorescence are not new subjects to the field of physics. Wilhelm Röntgen discovered x-rays in 1895, and in 1901 he was awarded the very first Nobel Prize in physics for this discovery. Soon after, Charles Glover Barkla discovered that each element has its own characteristic x-ray spectrum. He was awarded a Nobel Prize in physics for this discovery in 1917. Sir William Henry Bragg and his son, Sir William Lawrence Bragg, were then able to experimentally prove that the discrete
Peer Review of Teaching - Course Portfolio
In this course portfolio, Dan Bernstein reports on changes he has made over three semesters in a psychology course on learning. He has succeeded in getting more students to achieve higher levels of understanding by changing the assessment from short abstract essay questions to problems that asked students to apply concepts in new contexts, and providing web-based opportunities for students to identify what makes some answers better than others. The portfolio includes examples of the assessments
CuraÁao is a computer program that simulates the sterile insect release method (SIRM) of pest population suppression, first conceived by E. F. Knipling (1955). The user can investigate the effects of several variables on the effectiveness of the method and discover what happens when some of the basic assumptions of the model are relaxed or violated in some way. The user should gain some understanding of the sorts of things that complicate the application of the technique in situations that are
Hypoxia Zone: Modeling Stratified Waters
Sampling of aquatic microorganisms reveals a surprising feature of many open water systems - stratification. Students can model the effects of reducing nutrient loads to surface waters on microbial populations and oxygen levels within the Mississippi River basin and Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Zone. Planktonic and benthic microbes occupy distinct zones in stratified water columns. Explore how the benthic consumer populations respond to environmental cues such as changes in sunlight, wind effects, o
The Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
This is an introduction to programming and computer science. This course exposes students to techniques of abstraction at several levels: (a) within a programming language, using higher-order functions, manifest types, data-directed programming, and message-passing; (b) between programming languages, using functional and rule-based languages as examples. It also relates these techniques to the practical problems of implementation of languages and algorithms on a von Neumann machine. There are se
