3. Natural Law Roots of the Social Contract Tradition
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Before exploring the three Enlightenment traditions in particular, Professor Shapiro examines the Enlightenment holistically, using John Locke as the foundation for the discussion. The first tenet of the Enlightenment is a commitment to science as a way of ordering politics, and Professor Shapiro introduces the Cartesian philosophy of science and segues into an elucidation of the workmanship ideal, a central feature of Enlightenment thinking. Corollary t
11. Marxian Exploitation and Distributive Justice
Moral Foundations of Politics (PLSC 118) Exploitation is an important technical--not normative--concept in the theory of Karl Marx. Although we are dealing with voluntary Pareto transactions, under capitalism, exploitation occurs whether or not an individual is better off. Capitalism is destined to fail, says Marx, because of (1) the possibility for liquidity crises, (2) the nature of capitalist competition inducing declining marginal profit on the industry-wide level, (3) the fact that capital

6.2 Political skills A project manager will encounter politics – the struggle to acquire and maintain power – on a daily basis, as he or she competes to secure resources and support for their project. This is inevitable, given the probable diversity of backgrounds and expectations of those with an interest in the project. Political skills will be necessary to make deals and resolve conflicts with stakeholders, over whom project managers may have little formal authority. Managing the following aspects needs to

6.2 Mimicking and mastering nature: manipulating the digital world
How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.

Cost Measurement and Minimization - Microeconomic Analysis
Microeconomic Analysis - Spring 2006. Resource allocation and price determination. By the end of the semester, students should know the basic theory, models, and results of the topics covered. They should be able to use this knowledge to answer questions and analyze real-world situations. They should also be able to identify which theory or model is appropriate to analyze a particular question and explain why their answers are correct in intuitive, as well as mathematical, terms.
Variability and Selection in Natural Populations of Wood Lice
This resource is a detailed manual of protocols and instructional information for carrying out an undergraduate laboratory exercise in evolution, including student outlines, pre-lab questions, post-lab questions, instructors notes, and suggested questions for laboratory reports.
Using Dermatoglyphics from Down Syndrome and Class Populations to Study the Genetics of a complex tr
Dermatoglyphics is the study of epidermal ridges on the hands and feet. Ridge patterns and counts develop prenatally, are inherited, and show quantitative variation. This exercise introduces the preparation and interpretation of finger and palm prints for quantitative analysis. The techniques are simple, inexpensive, and can be adapted as an exercise on genetics for beginning or advanced students. Palm prints from individuals with Down Syndrome serve as a population sample to statistically test
Lighting Up: Analysis Of Yeast RAS Genes Using A Chemiluminescent Southern Blot Procedure
Genomic and plasmid-encoded RAS2 genes from Baker's and brewing yeast strains will be analyzed using a shortened Southern blot procedure employing chemiluminescence. Unique parts of this procedure are the gravity-driven "upside down" transfer and a rotisserie-like hybridization oven, which greatly facilitate shortening the transfer time to 45 minutes and the hybridization step to 60 minutes. Chemiluminescence obviates problems associated with radioisotopes without sacrificing sensitivity: the pl
Closeup of Solar Tadpoles with time tags
Here is a close-up view of dark tentacles or tadpoles moving towards the solar surface in this solar flare of April 21, 2002 seen by TRACE. One theory proposed in this press release is that they are due to voids created by magnetic reconnection in the flare. This version of the visualization displays the instrument clock time tags.

The Impact of the End of the Cold War on Europe
This 3:48 long video is about the impact of the end of the Cold War on Europe. The way that President Bill Clinton took advantage of the end of the war to try to integrate and communist part of Europe with the rest of it and how NATO was used. President George H. Bush was mentioned in regard to the war with Iraq and how it related to the way the Cold War brought nations to democracy.
Finding Tangent Ratios
This two minute videos is about using tangent ratios, which is opposite over adjacent. You use this equation to find side lengths. Right triangles have ratios that are used to represent their base angles. Tangent ratios, along with cosine and sine ratios, are ratios of two different sides of a right triangle. Tangent ratios are the ratio of the side opposite to the side adjacent the angle they represent. In order to find the measure of the angle itself, one must understand inverse trig
