LRMA MAGIC: Wall Graphics
http://www.youtube.com/user/StPetersburgCollege The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art commits to excellence in visual arts education, fosters aesthetic, critical and ethical thinking as a bridge to the future and nurtures interest in 20th century art history by collecting, preserving, and exhibiting the art of Abraham Rattner, Esther Gentle, Allen Leepa and their contemporaries. About St. Petersburg College: In 1927, St. Petersburg College (then known as St. Petersburg Junior College) became Florida
4.1 Introduction The heart is the engine of the human body – but what about it's specific function in athletes participating in sport? We have seen that athletes need to get oxygen and nutrients to different parts of their body quickly – this means they need an efficient cardiovascular system, this means having an efficient heart. What do we mean by an efficient heart? We mean one that pumps a lot of blood with every beat and that can beat quickly for a long period of time. An athlete's heart differ

PediNeuroLogic Exam: 18 Month Old: Normal: Fine Motor/Coordination - Beads in Cup
He is able to pick up small beads and place them in a small container with good fine motor control. By using both blocks and beads, one is testing increasing levels of difficulty of fine motor control and coordination. 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 important neurodevelopmental milestones.
Students are introduced to chemical engineering and learn about its many different applications. They are provided with a basic introduction to matter and its different properties and states. An associated hands-on activity gives students a chance to test their knowledge of the states of matter and how to make observations using their five senses: touch, smell, sound, sight and taste.
"Biomedical Information Technology, Fall 2008"
" This course teaches the design of contemporary information systems for biological and medical data. Examples are chosen from biology and medicine to illustrate complete life cycle information systems, beginning with data acquisition, following to data storage and finally to retrieval and analysis. Design of appropriate databases, client-server strategies, data interchange protocols, and computational modeling architectures. Students are expected to have some familiarity with scientific applica
Save the Oysters - Introducing Non-native Species to the Chesapeake Bay
Since the introduction of MSX and Dermo in the 1950’s, two infectious diseases that played a large role in the decline the Chesapeake Bay’s oyster population, several oyster hatcheries along the Eastern seaboard are working with scientists across many fields to develop innovative restoration programs. One idea is to introduce a non-native oyster from China called Crassostrea ariakensis. In this video podcast, MicrobeWorld talks about current research underway with C. ariakensis, the potentia
EE 120 - Lecture 27 - Signals and Systems
Structure and Interpretation of Systems and Signals - Spring 2007. This course is an introduction to mathematical modeling techniques used in the design of electronic systems. An important keyword here is "mathematical." Subjects we will cover include continous and discrete signals, with applications to audio, images, video, communications, and control; State-based models, beginning with automata and evolving to LTI systems; Frequency domain models for signals and frequency response for systems,
Numbers needed to treat and numbers needed to harm
This RLO considers how to measure and interpret the magnitude of effect in clinical trial results using number needed to treat (NNT) and number needed to harm (NNH).
Small Regulatory RNAs May Sharpen Spatial Expression Patterns
The precise establishment of gene expression patterns is a crucial step in development. Formation of a sharp boundary between high and low spatial expression domains requires a genetic mechanism that exhibits sensitivity, yet is robust to fluctuations, a demand that may not be easily achieved by morphogens alone. Recently, it has been demonstrated that small RNAs (and, in particular, microRNAs) play many roles in embryonic development. Whereas some RNAs are essential for embryogenesis, others ar
Greeks protest austerity measures
June 18 - Greeks protest a new belt tightening measure that they say will mean financial ruin for the average citizen. Deborah Gembara reports.
The case for embryo research
Professor of reproductive biology at Warwick Medical School Justin St John explains why his proposed work into using very early stage hybrid human-animal embryos for research is necessary. For more details see www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/med/research/csri/reproductive_biology/
INTERACTIVE LOOK AT THE AMERICAN GOTHIC WITH A WHITEBOARD
THIS IS A BRIEF LOOK AT A FEW INTERACTIVE SLIDES MADE WITH MIMIO STUDIO SOFTWARE FOR USE WITH AN INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD. THE VIDEO LASTS THREE MINUTES AND DISPLAYS VARIOUS WAYS TO USE THE PAINTING TO CREATE INTEGRATED UNITS OF STUDY. A GOOD WAY TO GET STUDENTS TO THINK ABOUT ART IN DIFFERENT WAYS.
Autour de l'ouvrage de Pierre Manent : Montaigne, la vie sans loi (audio) Il va de soi aujourd’hui que Montaigne est notre ami. Il nous captive,
nous émeut, nous persuade. Mais Montaigne nous trompe. Il nous conduit
par le bout du nez. Nous devons donc faire un effort vigoureux pour
échapper à son charme et saisir ce qu’il a vraiment voulu dire. Montaigne

397GG Secrets of Bestselling Novels
A new study uncovered things that successful novels have in common.
The Formation of the Solar System
Seems to me Mr. Bighead is as much an actor as he is a scientist in this animated video. Here he plays two roles in which he debates with himself how our solar system was formed. You will learn about the nebular theory and planetesimal theory of formation.
Days of the Week Song

The Busy World of Richard Scarry-Imagine That - Reading a Book
In this video Huckle and Lowly Worm go on an adventure by reading a book. You can be anyone and go anywhere in a book. Grab your library card and go to the library. This is a good teaching resource for a thematic unit on community helpers. It would also work well at the beginning of the school year when students are learning procedures for special classes. Elementary students will enjoy this video (1:02).
Projeto Design Condensado: Defini??o de ?Modelo Sociocultural? para Sistemas de Visualiza??o Din?mic
The ?Condensed Design Project? aims to discuss and reflect on how the definition of an ?activity inducer?, by describing and characterizing ?social-cultural models?, can be used in the development of dynamic data visualization systems. The aim is to discuss and try to understand how the profile of the ?activity inducer?, routines, scenario and context impact the navigation, interaction, research and learning processes in design history. Thus, the knowledge building process is strictly conditione
