Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
SARS may currently dominate the headlines, but the Whyfiles takes another look at another fast-spreading viral disease: West Nile. West Nile has spread to 44 US states and beyond, and while it can be fatal to humans, it remains primarily a bird disease. The Whyfiles offers an in-depth exploration of West Nile in North American birds, tackling the questions How far? How fast? What's next? Who's next? The report also explains how researchers conduct bird studies, such as lab and field studies, ane
This extensive collection of activities from the American Museum of Natural History offers middle school students an exciting and creative context for involving students in the scientific process while introducing them to the rich diversity and beauty of their local ecosystem. Lesson plans, Web-based interactive activities, useful Web links, profiles of AMNH scientists and staff, and other features help students inventory and analyze the plants and arthropods found in their own neighborhoods. Al
This is an experiment showing the application of affinity chromatography to the separation of albumin from horse serum. A brief introduction of affinity chromatography and how it is being used in this specific experiment is given. This appears to be a good experiment to show the advantages of affinity chromatography in separating specific proteins from a complex matrix and would be useful in a biochemistry course or a course that is specifically looking at differing types of chromatography.
Uncertainty and Ambiguity in American Fiscal and Monetary Policies
Combining an historical approach with macroeconomic theory, Thomas Sargent will discuss ways of thinking about American fiscal and monetary policies - exploring how contradictions have developed and how they have been resolved. Thomas Sargent is professor of economics at New York University and senior fellow at Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

Racial Differences in 30-Day Mortality for Pulmonary Embolism
Objectives. Previous studies reported a higher incidence of in-hospital mortality for Black patients who had pulmonary embolism than for White patients. We used a large statewide database to compare 30-day mortality (defined as death within 30 days from the date of latest hospital admission) for Black and White patients who were hospitalized because of pulmonary embolism. Methods. The study cohort consisted of 15531 discharged patients who had been treated for pulmonary embolism at 186 Pennsylv
Parts of a Spider: Ventral View of a Female Spider
This illustrated guide (ventral view) to a female spider is designed to help students recognize and learn its common and unique body parts. The single Web page, which can be easily printed for use at field sites or in the lab, also includes a short description for the following labeled parts: chelicera fang endite labium sternum coxa lung slit epigynum spinnerets.
This illustrated guide is designed to help students recognize and learn the difference between entire and toothed leaf margins. The single Web page can be easily printed for use at field sites. Both leaf margin illustrations identify the leaf blade and the petiole.
