Antarctic Ozone from TOMS: July 15, 2001 to October 9, 2001
Satellite data show the area of this years Antarctic ozone hole peaked at about 26 million square kilometers -- roughly the size of North America -- making the hole similar in size to those of the past three years, according to scientists from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Researchers have observed a leveling-off of the hole size and predict a slow recovery.

Climbing Mt. Evolution
There's no peak in sight - fitness peak, that is -- for the bacteria in Richard Lenski's Michigan State University lab. Lenski, MSU Hannah Distinguished Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, has been running his evolutionary bacteria experiment for 25 years, generating more than 50,000 generations. In a paper published in the current issue of Science, Michael Wiser, lead author and MSU graduate student in Lenski's lab, compares it to hiking. To learn more, visit http://msutoday.msu

This short video gives excellent real life footage of a Natterjack Toad popping out of a hole and moving across sand. The chief distinguishing feature of the natterjack toad (Bufo calamita) is the yellow stripe down its back. Shorter hind legs also tell the natterjack toad apart from the common toad and it has a tendency to run instead of hopping or walking, which is why it is sometimes called the running toad. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to hel

Leeds is a major city in the UK and as such is a magnet for shoppers from the surrounding region. Around 1.7 to 1.9 million people are in the catchment area as shoppers in Leeds city centre. Consequently retail is an important business for Leeds. John Temperley Senior Lecturer in Marketing in the Business School and a retail specialist, explains the choices that face consumers and what their preferences are, based on research by students sponsored by Leeds city centre management. The results ar
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of two male Stag Beetles fighting for a female. The stag beetle (Lucanus cervus) is arguably the most spectacular looking beetle in Britain; the male looks like something from a prehistoric age. The giant antler-like mandiblesare used in courtship displays, and wrestling with other males. Although rather fearsome in appearance, the mandibles cannot be closed with any force. You are more likely to be nipped sharply b
City modelling has a considerable range of potential applications and because of this, as a field of research has attracted a great deal of attention over recent years. Here we reflect on work already reported by the authors in this area, describe some more recent work on improving the system that had been developed and show an example of how city modelling is being applied in practice as a planning tool in the UK.

Abelard to Apple The vast majority of American college students attend two thousand or so private and public institutions that might be described as the Middle--reputable educational institutions, but not considered equal to the elite and entrenched upper echelon of the Ivy League and other prestigious schools. Richard DeMillo has a warning for these colleges and universities in the Middle: If you do not change, you are heading for irrelevance and marginalization. In Abelard to Apple, DeMillo ar
This is the homepage of an online journal that disseminates "articles that significantly advance the study of categorical algebra or methods, or that make significant new contributions to mathematical science using categorical methods." A new volume is published each year, consisting of between ten and twenty research papers. The journal commonly focuses on the applications of category theory to computer science, algebra, topology, and other scientific areas. Papers are contributed by researcher
