Using data from the National Climate Data Center (NCDC) track snowfall in your area and assess snowfall levels from the Winter Olympics.
Global energy use increases by the day. Polluting the atmosphere with ever more carbon dioxide is not a viable solution for our future energy needs. Can new technologies such as carbon sequestration and ethanol production help provide the energy we need without pushing the concentrations of CO2 to dangerous levels?

Social Alternatives in the Progressive Era
This video is accompanied by text. "During the Progressive Era, lawmakers at both state and federal levels introduced laws and regulations to protect citizens at home and work. Although many states had already passed social-minded legislation before the Progressive Movement, many of the laws were poorly written and could not be adequately enforced. For example, in 1874, Massachusetts restricted women and children workers to 10-hour workdays. In 1882, New York attacked the sweatshops by prohibiti
Tutorial Letter: General Information and Overview of Programme
In this module we will introduce you to concepts such as food security, food insecurity, nutrition security, livelihood security, food policies and programmes and the role of stakeholders and facilitators. You will gain the knowledge and skills required to gather information on many different levels, from the macro to the micro level.

Have you ever wondered why overheating on a hot day and getting a fever when you're sick feel so different? Both involve an increase in your body's temperature. However, in one case your brain and body do everything they can to cool you off, while in the other they push the temperature inside your body to extreme levels. This video describes these two responses in detail and takes some of the mystery out of fever. The video also gives a simple introduction to homeostatis. Closed captioning inclu
