3.8 Revision questions
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.

Strong shaking in Los Angeles expected from southern San Andreas earthquake
The southernmost San Andreas fault has a high probability of rupturing in a large (greater than magnitude 7.5) earthquake sometime during the next few decades. New simulations show that the chain of sedimentary basins between San Bernardino and downtown Los Angeles form an effective waveguide that channels Love waves along the southern edge of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains. Earthquake scenarios with northward rupture, in which the guided wave is efficiently excited, produce unusua
RHESSI Observes the Flare over AR9906 - rotate view with times
Zoom in (with rotation) to solar active region AR9906 on April 21, 2002 with SOHO-EIT,TRACE and RHESSI data. RHESSI observes x-rays from this flare. The red contours represent the 12-25 keV photon energy range and the blue contours represent 50-100 keV.

How to Find Orion
How to find the constellation Orion. Distinguished by Orion's Belt, with Rigel (a blue star) and Betelguese (a red star).Orion is one of the most easily recognizable constellations due to the three stars that form the belt of Orion. Look for Orion almost due East in the fall. The video is only one minute in duration so it may have to be stopped to assist the students in locating these stars.

Functional and Structural Insights Revealed by Molecular Dynamics Simulations of an Essential RNA Ed
RNA editing ligase 1 (TbREL1) is required for the survival of both the insect and bloodstream forms of Trypanosoma brucei, the parasite responsible for the devastating tropical disease African sleeping sickness. The type of RNA editing that TbREL1 is involved in is unique to the trypanosomes, and no close human homolog is known to exist. In addition, the high-resolution crystal structure revealed several unique features of the active site, making this enzyme a promising target for structure-base
Urban Signatures: Sensible Heat Flux (WMS)
Big cities influence the environment around them. For example, urban areas are typically warmer than their surroundings. Cities are strikingly visible in computer models that simulate the Earths land surface. This visualization shows sensible heat flux predicted by the Land Information System (LIS) for a day in June 2001. Sensible heat flux is higher in the cities--that is, they transfer more heat to the atmosphere--because the surface there is warmer than in the surroundings. Only part of the g
