Microscopy of Air/Water Biofilms in the Undergraduate Laboratory: A Simple Collection Kit with Multi
Naturally occurring air/water interface biofilms are ubiquitous, but largely unexplored. They provide ideal samples for introductory microscopy and microbiology. This activity introduces a simple method for collecting samples from nature or the lab and gives detailed instructions on preparing a simple collecting kit and optimum viewing with student microscopes. Useful features of this activity include: the ideal nature of a wide assortment of ubiquitous air/water interface biofilms for microscop

Chris Brett (Olam International), John Humphrey and Jim Sumberg (IDS) are interviewed
Chris Brett (Senior Vice President of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability, Olam International), John Humphrey and Jim Sumberg (Research Fellows, IDS) are interviewed on the seminar, 'A Business Approach to Food Security', held at IDS on the 31 May 2011 as part the Business and Development Seminar Series.
På torsdagen Klartext att forskare har upptäckt nya saker om den dödsfarliga Ehec-bakterien. Vi berättade även om traditionerna kring Kristi himmelfärdsdagen.
Students extend their knowledge of the skeletal system to biomedical engineering design, specifically the concept of artificial limbs. Students relate the skeleton as a structural system, focusing on the leg as structural necessity. They learn about the design considerations involved in the creation of artificial limbs, including materials and sensors.
01 Nicodemi Frischlini Facetiae
Not all things Latin are grave and pale. Here is some hilarious stuff, if you are of that turn of mind, written by one Nicodemius Frschlinius. The text is on google books: search for Facetiae selectiores: quibus ob argumenti similitudinem accesserunt By Nikodemus Philipp Frischlin
'City, Art, Motion: Rethinking the "Now" in Johannesburg' (Annual Lecture 2011)
Sarah Nuttal, Research Professor, Department of English, University of Stellenbosch, gives the first 2011 African Studies Annual Lecture on 26th May 2011
Directed in 1971 by Robert Alan Weiss for the Department of Chemistry of Stanford University and imprinted with the "free love" aura of the period, this short film continues to be shown in biology class today. It has since spawn a series of similar funny attempts at vulgarizing protein synthesis. Narrated by Paul Berg, 1980 Nobel prize for Chemistry.

5.2.2 Lithospheric plates: forces acting at plate margins
Plate tectonics is an earth sciences topic that attracts a good deal of interest, given that it a topic very often featured in popular science programmes on TV and radio. It is a subject that have strong visual appeal. The coverage is S279 is self-contained, up to date and is written in a way that will be accessible to those with interest and motivation, all the more so for those who have some pre-existing scientific understanding.
Will Solar Technologies Meet Utility-Scale Demand? - MIT Club of Northern California
Please join us at PARC the evening of June 1st for a stand-up dinner, followed by a lively panel discussion featuring three high-level solar executives and the senior advisor to the CA governor, who will address the viability of solar technologies in scaling up to meet the needs of utility-class renewable power generation.
The southwest U.S. is an enormous potential solar resource and several projects involving concentrated solar thermal or photovoltaic technologies have been approved b
Graduating Student Messages 2011: U - Z
With the close of another academic year and another group of students graduating from MIT, some students were able to record a message for family and friends. Here is a compilation of the message from the students whose last names start with U - Z in no particular order.
ESD.342 Network Representations of Complex Engineering Systems (MIT)
This course provides a deep understanding of engineering systems at a level intended for research on complex engineering systems. It provides a review and extension of what is known about system architecture and complexity from a theoretical point of view while examining the origins of and recent developments in the field. The class considers how and where the theory has been applied, and uses key analytical methods proposed. Students examine the level of observational (qualitative and quantitat
8.324 Relativistic Quantum Field Theory II (MIT)
This course is the second course of the quantum field theory trimester sequence beginning with Relativistic Quantum Field Theory I (8.323) and ending with Relativistic Quantum Field Theory III (8.325). It develops in depth some of the topics discussed in 8.323 and introduces some advanced material.
