This month with the President - May 2011
McMaster is committed to expanding and broadening the many pathways students can take to enter university. In May, seventy Grade 7 students from Hamilton's Cathy Wever elementary school spent three days on campus learning that post secondary education could be an option for them. In this installment of This Month with the President Patrick Deane talks about why broadening these pathways is an important goal.

3.3 The role of the basilar membrane in sound reception
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
Down with the Dictator of Yemen Governments and their intellectual front men believe that nothing unites a population like a war. Actually, that's not quite true. What happens is that during war, governments strike fear into their domestic opponents and silence them through intimidation. The appearance of unity is wholly illusory.

Researchers solve 'mammoth' evolutionary puzzle - Hendrik Poinar
A DNA-based study sheds new light on the complex evolutionary history of the woolly mammoth, suggesting it mated with a completely different and much larger species. The research, which appears in the BioMed Central's open access journal Genome Biology, found the woolly mammoth, which lived in the cold climate of the Arctic tundra, interbred with the Columbian mammoth, which preferred the more temperate regions of North America and was some 25 per cent larger.

"Computation Structures, Spring 2009"
" 6.004 offers an introduction to the engineering of digital systems. Starting with MOS transistors, the course develops a series of building blocks — logic gates, combinational and sequential circuits, finite-state machines, computers and finally complete systems. Both hardware and software mechanisms are explored through a series of design examples. 6.004 is required material for any EECS undergraduate who wants to understand (and ultimately design) digital systems. A good grasp of the mater
Panel 4: Economic Impacts of HSR: Lessons for California
Other countries have decades of experience living with HSR and observing how it has influenced their urban economies. While HSR has broad, and often difficult to quantify, economic impacts, experiences from the Europe and Japan suggest that HSR can increase productivity and competitiveness by reducing the "time/space relationship" between cities. This panel will explore the economic impacts of HSR projects abroad and offer timely lessons for California to maximize the economic benefits of HSR fo

5.1 Why do plates move?
Plate tectonics is an earth sciences topic that attracts a good deal of interest, given that it a topic very often featured in popular science programmes on TV and radio. It is a subject that have strong visual appeal. The coverage is S279 is self-contained, up to date and is written in a way that will be accessible to those with interest and motivation, all the more so for those who have some pre-existing scientific understanding.
