You Be the Conservator
This web activity, recommended for grades 5 and up, is designed to teach both content and process. The content areas addressed in this activity are the science of conservation and the history of the Hispanic American tradition of making santos. Santos are painted woodcarvings of saints in the Catholic Church. Conservators use scientific tools and procedures such as xeroradiography and microscopy to analyze objects. The science behind these tools and procedures is explained in this web activity.

California has always been a place of cultural interaction. Early California evolved and changed with each new group of settlers. These images depict the developing interconnectedness of California's early cultures. They also underscore the importance of movement and later settlement of peoples in California. Some of the modern images underscore the contested and often romanticized nature of California’s Spanish and Mexican heritage. This is a collection of primary source images.
Moral and ethical principles in end of life care
In many areas of health care, and especially in such areas as palliative care, increasing attention has been paid in recent years to patient autonomy, and the need to respect it. Autonomy has come to be seen as a very important aspect of the interaction between patients and those looking after them, and forms the basis for many ethical commitments, such as telling the truth to patients, and seeking their consent for health care interventions. In this unit we look at quite a wide range of ethical
Economics explains discrimination in the labour market
Discrimination in the labour market exists in many forms: the 'glass ceiling' ageism, racism, etc. This unit will help you look at this problem with a new perspective: through economics. You will learn how economists have tried to understand what drives this distortion of the labour market and why women and the ethnic minorities seem to suffer the most.
Creating an ethical organization
Businesses are increasingly making explicit their commitment to dealing with ethical concerns. This unit explores the business case for an ethical approach to human resources management and examines whether a more 'human-centred' approach can bring dividends, and how an ethical approach fits within an organisation's strategy.

Boy on trampoline
The boy would feel less secure if the safety net around the trampoline wasn't there. Humans have an innate need to feel secure in their environments.
Blooming prickly pear cactus (Opuntia) from the Sonora desert
Cacti are often overlooked as flowering plants. In fact, cacti bloom with colorful flowers and reproduce like all other angiosperms.
Bee on flower
Bees visit flowering plants to collect nectar so they can store it as honey back at their hives. As a bee visits one flower after another, pollen collects on its entire body and especially on the legs. Bees help pollinate flowers while they collect nectar. This is a mutualistic behavior.
Basic Needs: U.S. currency
Humans need to feel financially safe and stable.
Balance and flux
Ecosystems and populations of organisms within ecosystems function by the principle of balance and flux. Balance can be thought of as a state of equilibrium, or a state of equal changes between two sides. Flux can be thought of as a rate of flow or changes. Even small changes in an ecosystem's or population's balance and flux could lead to disaster.
Fly on a leaf
Flies are insects that eat dead plant and animal material. Their ingestion and digestion of detritus leads to respiration and excretion of important nutrients back into the soil and water.
