Jews & Magic in Medici Florence
With work published widely in the course of his 30 years of archival research in Florence, Edward Goldberg founded the Medici Archive Project to provide worldwide public access to the historical data in the Medici Granducal Archive through a fully searchable database. Established by Grand Duke Cosimo I in 1569, the archive of the Medici Grand Dukes offers the most complete record of any princely regime in Renaissance and Baroque Europe. The 3 million letters contained in more than 6,000 volumes
Motor Exam: Anatomy: UMN Lesion Clinical Findings
The clinical findings from a UMN lesion will include loss of distal extremity strength, dexterity and a Babinski sign (loss of direct corticospinal effect) plus increased tone, hyperreflexia, and the clasp-knife phenomenon (from loss of control of the indirect brainstem centers). The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examina
Corals at the Crossroads
Corals at the Crossroads profiles more than twenty years of research activities by Dr. Brian Lapointe, senior scientist at Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute at Florida Atlantic University, in the Florida Keys. Water quality issues and coral reef degradation at Looe Key are highlighted.
Use of Workbooks
On how the use of workbooks in classes can aid student learning.
Videotaping Student Presentations
Active cooperative learning is a way to build knowledge and skills in marketing courses, as by placing less emphasis on transmitting information and more on developing skills and exploring course material, students are involved in higher-order thinking. This paper is on how videotaping presentations can be identified as an active teaching method.

Slow blood flow in Lumbriculus variegates (note the muscle contractions in each body section).
Bees and plant growth
Bees help pollinate plants so they can reproduce. There are three different kinds of bees, and the queen bee is the largest. Bees keep their honey in their hives.
Characterization of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes by Raman Spectroscopy
Raman Spectroscopy can be successfully employed to study Carbon nanotubes at single nanotube level. Length, diameter, electronic type (metallic or semiconducting), and whether nanotubes are separated or in bundle can be known by the use of Raman Spectroscopy.

Exploring Magnetism in Solar Flares
Solar flares are the most powerful explosions in the Solar System and play an important role in the Sun-Earth connection. Solar flares are caused by sudden changes of strong magnetic fields in the Sun’s corona. The changing magnetic field converts magnetic potential energy into kinetic energy by accelerating charged gases (plasmas) in the corona. The plasma is channeled by the magnetic field up and away from the Sun. Plasma is also accelerated back down along the magnetic field into the chromo
NeuroLogic Exam: Welcome
Introduces NeuroLogic Exam, a neuroscience tutorial that explores the relationship between neuroanatomy and the neurologic examination. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localizes the disease when present. Instead of simply memorizing the components of the exam,
Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tandem Gait
The patient is asked to walk heel-to-toe. Note steadiness. Tandem gait requires the patient to narrow the station and maintain balance over a 4-5 inch width. Patients with midline ataxias have difficulty with tandem gait. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localiz
Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and the Civil War
This three minute video helps to show how the North thought it would be a short war. The first was the Battle of Full Run; It resulted in huge losses on both sides. It was anything but quick. Lincoln introduced the Emancipation Proclamation, which banned slavery in the Confederate states and changed the rationale for the war. A good overview.
