An Evening with Paul Baran, in conversation with Henry Lowood
Baran, who received a 2005 Computer History Museum Fellow Award for his foundational work on packet switching, is joined on stage by Henry Lowood, Curator for History of Science and Technology Collections, Stanford University Libraries. Baran will discuss the origin and development of his accomplishments—which span a lifetime of entrepreneurial activity, including 150 papers, 40 patents, and five start-up companies—and how these continue to have an impact on our everyday lives.
Young Giant Pandas Playing

Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P
The lesson begins with a demonstration introducing students to the force between two current carrying loops, comparing the attraction and repulsion between the loops to that between two magnets. After formal lecture on Ampere’s law, students begin to use the concepts to calculate the magnetic field around a loop. This is applied to determine the magnetic field of a toroid, imagining a toroid as a looped solenoid.
External Influences on Prescribing Workshop
This workshop explores what influences prescribers can be subjected to in their day to day practice. It will offer opportunities for the practitioners to critically assess these influences and reflect on how to deal with them in a professional manner.
X-Rays As Art
Nick Veasey has looked inside everything from airplanes to oranges. Veasey is an x-ray photographer and recently published a collection of his work in the book "X-Ray: See Through The World Around You." We stopped by a shoot to see the artist in action. Video also explains how we get X Ray pictures. (4:28)
TÜ Loodusteadusliku hariduse lektoraadi vastavatel kursustel (Loodusteaduste visualiseerimine) osalenud õpetajate koostatud interaktiivsed mudelid bioloogiliste protsesside tundmaõppimiseks. Kuigi mudeleid ei saa lugeda lõplikult viimistletuks, on nad õppeprotsessi visualiseerimiseks asjakohased: kasvõi ideede saamiseks. Kasutajal on soovitav fail enne oma arvutisse salvestada ning vajadusel täiendada.
Annually Occurring Aerosol Features: Biomass Burning in Southern Africa from July to September 1986
Aerosol index over Africa from July 2, 1986 through September 7, 1986 as measured by the Nimbus-7 Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS)
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate some of the different parts of an airplane through the construction of a paper airplane. Students will build several different kinds of paper airplanes in order to figure out what makes an airplane fly and what can be changed to influence the flying characteristics of an airplane.
U.S. Morning Call: All eyes on jobs report; Alcoa cuts back
Jan. 6 - Thomson Reuters IFR Markets is looking for a rise of 140,000 jobs in December's report, and Alcoa announces plans to slash its global smelting capacity by 12 percent.
Euro zone on course for recession
Jan. 4 - The downturn in the euro zone's private sector economy eased slightly towards the new year thanks to an upturn in Germany but the region still looks on course for recession. Ciara Sutton reports

Tim Flannery gives the annual ANU Reconciliation Lecture
Professor Tim Flannery gives the annual ANU Reconciliation Lecture. Professor Flannery uses this talk to reflect on what ancient Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures have to teach us all in the modern world. He discusses the rapid globalisation of the world and the common culture of social media among young people. He also discusses how people are adopting global solutions to global problems such as climate change and reflect on how the nature of reconciliation between Aboriginal and
In this activity, students learn how engineers use solar energy to heat buildings by investigating the thermal storage properties of some common materials: sand, salt, water and shredded paper. Students then evaluate the usefulness of each material as a thermal storage material to be used as the thermal mass in a passive solar building.
