Dickinson Magazine - Turtle Tagging
Dickinson Magazine Feature Video: In April, students in Gene Wingert's Introduction to Field Biology lab teamed up to capture and tag turtles in Wildwood Park in Harrisburg, Pa. The project had a two-fold purpose: track population and growth rates while raising funds for Wildwood Park through an Adopt-a-Turtle event. All "adopted" turtles were later released back into the wild; meanwhile, students had hands-on experience with field research. Assisting Wingert (who directed the project from behi

Peripheral Nervous System Review Games
Five Jeopardy-style games for one to four players were developed in Macromedia Flash to provide beginner health professional learners with drill-and-practice exercises evaluating peripheral nervous system content acquisition and knowledge. The objective was to stimulate self-directed and problem-based learning in the format of NBME anatomy subject examinations. The rationale was to integrate related disciplines into a structured format that is readily accessible for local and distance learning.

African Vegetation: Comparing August 1984 and August 1994
For many years, scientists have believed that the southern expansion of the Sahara has been due to human activity. However, results from the AVHRR instrument and its measurements of vegetation suggest a different explanation: rainfall patterns. In drier years (1984 was one of the driest summers in recorded history in Northern Africa), the Sahara expands south, but in wetter years (such as 1994), vegetation moves back and there is no net expansion of the Sahara as had been previously suggested.

5.3 Ethics and ethos: ‘does mum know?’

In Act 1 we are presented with a fairly naïve Ned, who initially believes himself to be in control. We discover he is very proud of his intellectual achievements and less concerned with money. He explains his inventions and, when he does so, he finds analogies that highlight the aesthetics of what he is designing. At a crucial point in the conversation, his brother Dan asks: ‘does mum know?’ This is a really significant point in the play because it draws in another relationship

3.5 The story so far

I have been discussing ethics as related to labelling things as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ or using more parochial words as substitutes. Different kinds of things could be said to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’, including means, ends, relationships, feelings, appearances, radiation levels and so on. The big ethical problem is how to combine this variety of things to reach a judgement, especially when combining them, it is possible that we end up with ambiguity or contradictions.

1.3 Your thoughts

What I have not done yet, however, is to say what ethics actually is! Before doing that I would like to give you an opportunity to collect your own initial thoughts on the matter and introduce some further ideas. Let's start with your reflection.
