Visual Studio Toolbox: Productivity Power Tools Part 1 Welcome to the debut episode of the Visual Studio Toolbox, a show that will focus on tooling both in and outside of Visual Studio. The goal is to help you become a more productive developer. In this episode, we will start to explore the Productivity Power Tools, a freely downloadable extension. We'll look at the Solution Navigator and see how it helps us navigate and understand solutions. All comments welcome. Let me know what you think.

Size-Selective Feeding of Zooplankton by Fish
This laboratory exercise is an experiment to test the size-selective predation hypothesis. Bluegill sunfish are placed in an aquarium containing a range of sizes of a crustacean, Daphnia, and fish stomach contents are examined to determine which size range was eaten.
Recording Action Potentials from Cockroach Mechanoreceptors
Readily available from suppliers, this larva has a large midgut that specializes in transporting excess potassium (from its plant food) into its lumen. The exercise is offered as an alternative to the traditional study of frog skin. In this exercise, the midgut is mounted on a perfusion tube, and the electrical potential difference across the wall of the midgut is measured with an oscilloscope which provides data on the rate of potassium transport. The basic set-up is amenable to the study of a
"We Want Real Jobs:" Sandra White and Brenda Steward on the Work Experience Program in New York City
During the 1960's and 1970's welfare reform movements from the left sought to increase benefits and expand community power, but in 1996 critics from the right passed the federal Welfare Reform Act to limit the program by imposing time-limits and restrictions on welfare benefits. In New York City, the Work Experience Program (WEP), or workfare, initiated in conjunction with the 1996 act, required welfare recipients to "pay off" their welfare benefits by working menial jobs for the city at well be
