Gauging the readiness of an institution of higher education to implement change in its distance educ
The democratization of finance, information, and technology has created a new global reality that affects every dimension of society and has transformed the competitive context. In this new reality, higher education is losing its monopoly as a credentialing agent, and it has become vulnerable to market forces from which it has been traditionally insulated. The majority of institutions of higher education have developed distance education programs to create market opportunities; however, in many
Gallbladder cancer: rare and often misdiagnosed
By: mdanderson Download from iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/gallbladder-cancer-rare-often/id4318... Gallbladder cancer is often misdiagnosed as liver cancer and is difficult to detect early since there are no symptoms at onset. Approximately 5,000 cases are diagnosed in the United States each year, but incidence is increasing with young Latinos in the southern part of the country.

Nikos Valence on Organizing Against the North American Free Trade Agreement
During the 1980's and 1990's international free trade agreements encouraged by the United States government increased the power and global reach of multinational corporations. The most controversial of these agreements, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), made it easier for U.S. companies to buy low cost goods from Mexico, which were often produced by U.S. subsidiaries that migrated to take advantage of low-cost labor. Organized labor and most liberal Democrats opposed NAFTA because
We are Told that the Americans have 13 Councils Compos'd of Chiefs and Warriors: The Chickasaws Send
The Chickasaw Indians occupied a key region of northern Mississippi. They held in check the French and Choctaws with their allies and trading partners the British. The American Revolution ended that balance of power. The Chickasaws sought neutrality but also felt allegiance to the British due to their long-held ties. In 1779, the Virginians sent threatening messages warning them of dire consequences if they did not make peace. The Chickasaw chiefs replied in a bold manner. The Mississippi River
BeeVisit enables students to evaluate the relative contributions of different pollinator species to a plant's reproductive success through an interactive model of pollen transfer. The model tracks a plant's presentation of pollen through time; pollen may be presented gradually or all at once, and the program lets you choose from a family of power curves to model the shape of the cumulative pollen presentation curve over a set number of time intervals (usually 100). Then, 'bees' of 1, 2, or 3 ty
Geography and Geology Powerpoints Page
Free Geography Powerpoint presentations. Great for KS1 KS2 KS3 KS4 and post 16 A level lesson plans, K-12 and more. Use and alter these presentations freely or any power point template used in this presentations site for other teachers. If you have any powerpoints then please consider submitting them for other teachers to download too. It's all about sharing and helping others. Powerpoints and whiteboards are likely to increase in popularity year by year as more and more schools adopt them.
Power of Positive Parenting
This course has been developed using portions from several of the books, videos, and audio products produced by Glenn Latham. These materials will give parents the skills necessary to raise children well. Glenn Latham said of his book, The Power of Positive Parenting, which is his definitive book, upon which this course is built, that it has been subjected to more independent, scientific scrutiny than any parenting book in print today. In every instance, it has been shown to be an effective pare
New Venture Development and Industry Analysis Map (undergraduate level)
The objective of this course is to equip McGuire Entrepreneurship Program students with the conceptual and analytical tools necessary for developing a strong sustainable competitive advantage for your proposed new venture. The proposed business will not succeed without identification and understanding of the industry, the company's niche, its key competitors, likely customer relationships, supplier power, switching costs, the role of technological change and government regulation; the proposed b
Milestones in the History of Energy and Its Uses
This site features a timeline of energy developments and uses since the 1700s. Learn about biomass, coal, electricity, geothermal, natural gas, nuclear power, oil, solar power, wind turbines, and transportation. See biographies of individuals who contributed to energy and science. Read a history of energy in the U.S. from 1635-2000.
Introduction to Glycolysis
Living cells can process certain sugar molecules, rearranging their atoms and this process can supply energy to the cell to power growth and other functions. This process is called glycolysis. Glycolysis evolved billions of years ago when there was no oxygen in the earth's atmosphere and it was therefore impossible for cells to gain energy from the oxidation of sugar molecules using oxygen. Later when oxygen was produced as a byproduct of photosynthesis cells evolved to utilise oxygen to oxidise
A First Course in Complex Analysis
These are the lecture notes of a one-semester undergraduate course which we taught at SUNY Binghamton. For many of our students, Complex Analysis is their first rigorous analysis (if not mathematics) class they take, and these notes reflect this very much. We tried to rely on as few concepts from real analysis as possible. In particular, series and sequences are treated "from scratch." This also has the (maybe disadvantageous) consequence that power series are introduced very late in the course.
Effective ways of displaying information
The power of graphics should not the underestimated. They can express information clearly and simply. This unit will help you to assess which style of graphic to use in different situations.
Social work and the law in Scotland

Kepler's Third Law - The Equation
In this activity students try various ways of plotting sidereal period vs. orbital radius and discover the simple power-law relationship of Kepler's third law. They recreate spreadsheets, shown in a Powerpoint module, with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This activity was designed for an undergraduate class where students look at geological questions mathematically and may spend more time on the math than on the geology. The site includes teaching notes and tips, and
