Korean media has reported the first public appearance by its leader in six weeks. Aided by a walking stick, Kim Jong un attended a newly built residential district in Pyongyang this week, the state-run Korean Central News Agency says. The announcement follows speculation over whether Kim’s absence from public commemorations was due to ‘discomfort’, as reported by North Korean officials, or if something more sinister was at play, like a coup. The fact that officialdom has even comment

Open Notebook Science ACS March07 (JCB)
Here is my talk "Open Notebook Science using Blogs and Wikis" at the American Chemical Society meeting in Chicago on March 27, 2007 at the Communicating Chemistry Symposium.
The first half is basically a condensed summary of how we are using UsefulChem to do Open Science. I then demonstrate for the first time Dave's Excel code to compute ki
NOP - Sustainable organic teaching lab
Sustainable development needs chemical research Research and innovation are preconditions for the transformation of economic and social processes in favor of a sustainable development. Chemistry, the science and practice of the transformation of matter, is of central importance. Everyone dealing with chemistry can contribute substantially to sustainable development and holds special responsibility. Already in education the links between reactions and substances with the consumption of energy and
Physics for Humanists
Physics for Humanists is intended for those who are intellectually and emotionally curious but do not intend to specialize in the natural sciences. The course covers facts and concepts of classical and modern physics; eminent scientists and the emotions that have impelled them; nuclear energy and nuclear bombs; and the interaction, both constructive and destructive, between science and society.

Who's Protecting Public Health? Part 2
Local E. coli scares and a measles outbreak are fresh reminders that infectious diseases continue to be major causes of sickness and death. Bioterrorism and biological disaster are on everyone's mind. Keeping one step ahead of these killers is one of the greatest challenges facing medicine and public health.
Swinging with Style
Students experientially learn about the characteristics of a simple physics phenomenon the pendulum by riding on playground swings. They use pendulum terms and a timer to experiment with swing variables. They extend their knowledge by following the steps of the engineering design process to design timekeeping devices powered by human swinging.
The use of NLP tools for Basque in a multiple user CALL environment and its feedback
In this article, we present a Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) environment for Basque. The environment has different aims: on the one hand, to offer the users (teachers, learners and computational linguists) different tools and language resources to clarify the linguistic doubts they might have about the language, and on the other hand, to store information about language learners, deviations and errors as the basis for further studies in CALL and Natural Language Processing (NLP). The
A Framework System for Intelligent Support in Open Distributed Learning Environments
Recent trends in the design of learning support systems are characterized by considering group interaction, by combining intelligent support with interactive learning environments, by providing reusable domain-independent components, and by using agent-structured architectures. Taking these trends into account, an open framework system has been developed for integrating distributed intelligent support components with an interactive and collaborative learning environment. Work in shared activity
Enabling Students to Construct Theories of Collaborative Inquiry and Reflective Learning: Computer S
To develop lifelong learning skills, we argue that students need to learn how to learn via inquiry and understand the sociocognitive and metacognitive processes that are involved. We illustrate how software could play a central role in enabling students to develop such expertise. Our hypothesis is that sociocognitive systems, such as those needed for collaborative inquiry and reflective learning, can best be understood as a community of interacting agents, who each have expertise in accomplishin
Internet Scout Project
Developed by the Information Institute of Syracuse, the Educator's Reference Desk offers a large assortment of science lessons plans for students of all ages. This amazing resource covers topics in earth science, chemistry, space science, geology, physics, and physical science, as well as life science subjects. Besides scanning the hands-on activities created by teachers throughout the United States, visitors can search the abundant lesson plans by key words or education level. The website provi
NIST Time and Frequency Information
The Time and Frequency Division, part of NIST's Physics Laboratory, maintains the standard for frequency and time interval for the United States, provides official time to the United States, and carries out a broad program of research and service activities in time and frequency metrology.
Pressure in a Graduated Cylinder
As you go farther below the surface of a fluid, the pressure increases. Professor Ephraim Fischbach demonstrates pressure in a graduated cylinder in this video from Thinkwell's online Physics series. Run time 03:18.
