Great Moments in Science: Light of Life 3
This Great Moments in Science radio transcript describes photons of light (not to be confused with bioluminescence) that can be seen only with the most sensitive photodetectors. Scientists believe that this light might be used by cells to communicate with each other. The audio version of this program can be downloaded and requires RealPlayer.
Formulas for functions of two variables
This website features a chart of functions with two variables and the equations for their standard deviation. It is from the Engineering Statistics handbook whose goal is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible. A link to tools and aids for using the handbook is provided.
Developing countries in the world trade regime
Free trade or fair trade? This unit will help you to analyse the relationship that exists between developed and developing countries under the World Trade Organization regime of Development Round negotiations. The current world trade regime has a very mixed record in promoting growth and reducing poverty.
Claiming connections: a distant world of sweatshops?
Sweatshops and the exploitation of workers are often linked to the globalised production of 'big brand' labels. This unit examines how campaigners have successfully closed the distance between the brands and the sweatshops, while others argue that such production 'kick starts' economies into growth benefiting whole communities.
Who are Europeans?
What is Europe and what defines a European? This unit looks at the development of identities within Europe and the European Union.

Businesses are increasingly making explicit their commitment to dealing with ethical concerns. This unit explores the business case for an ethical approach to human resources management and examines whether a more 'human-centred' approach can bring dividends, and how an ethical approach fits within an organisation's strategy.

Most parents take photographs and videos of their children to provide lasting memories to treasure in later years. But very few take pictures of themselves - and it is pictures of the parents that the children will want to see: that is what THEY saw at the time. Women grow conscious of the toll taken by passing years and become more and more reluctant
