Risk, Exposure and Health
We all require food, air, and water to survive — which are contaminated to some extent by man-made pollutants. Two studies, one in a rural western mining town and another in a dense urban population, reveal how these exposures impact health, and what can be done to reduce the risks.
While essential to the lives of humans and animals, fresh water only accounts for six percent of the world's water supply. Scientists in Florida's Everglades and the water challenged Southwest consider the optimum use of existing sources of fresh water for both humans and ecosystems.
Physical education Differentiation
Physical education Differentiation I am researching inclusive PE lessons and the need for differentiation for the inclusion of all learners. I also need to link this to the role of competition in a inclusive PE learning environment. My research is focused on key stage 1/2 and PE lessons.

HIV and AIDS
Studying individuals with natural resistance to HIV has led to insights into the infection process and may produce new treatments or a vaccine. This session explores recent developments in the study of HIV and AIDS, the future global impact of the current infection levels, and the ethical issues surrounding current research and treatments.
Dorcas Gonzalez-Lantz, 6th Grade
Students learn about matter and molecules as they investigate the relationships between energy and changes of state by observing water change from ice to steam. Students share, discuss, and analyze their theories. They must be able to defend their answers and answer classmates' questions, thus demonstrating conceptual understanding.
Workshop 8: Understanding Energy
Energy lights our homes, fuels our transportation systems, and much more, but affordable energy is in limited supply. In this session, look at the global impact of these limits and see how being smart about using energy will become more important in our daily lives.
An evaluation of innovative approaches to teacher training on the Teach First programme
This report, commissioned by the TDA in 2003, evaluates the Teach First programme. This is an employment-based route recruiting able graduates into teaching, especially in shortage subjects, in challenging schools in London. The report evaluates whether the innovative practice within the Teach First programme could be shared with and has benefits for other ITT providers. There is a detailed outline of the data collection method followed by a focus on each aspect of innovative practice. At the en

Global Investment Returns Yearbook Migration Westward after Reconstruction Laura Tyson GLS 2010 interview Cloud Rap Weather & Meteorology : How Do Clouds Form? Cloud Formations - Time Lapse
In a new podcast, Paul Marsh, Emeritus Professor of Finance and co-author of the Credit Suisse Global Investment Returns Yearbook, discusses what information on historic investment returns can tell us about the current crisis
This video is accompanied by text. "Prior to the Civil War, most English settlers and their descendants chose to live along the Atlantic Coast. However, the Pacific Coast was also being settled, which would lead to the development of the Great Plains as the two coasts spread toward the middle of America.
Atlantic settlers referred to the Great Plains and the Pacific Coast as the “Great West.” A less-optimistic name for this region was the “Great American Desert,” so-named because o
Laura D'Andrea Tyson, S.K. and Angela Chan Professor of Global Management, Haas School of Business, on what we can learn from emerging markets
Rap video showing the three types of clouds. The video also addresses the Water Cycle (where clouds come from). The song shows photos of cumulus, cirrus, stratus and nimbus clouds while referring to them in the lyrics. Student art work is also included in the video. Run time 04:10
Clouds are formed by parcels of rising air that cool and create tiny droplets of water. Learn about dew points and how they affect moisture going from a gas to a liquid with help from a meteorologist in this video on understanding weather. Run time 01:02.
If you observe clouds in a portion of the sky, you may notice that they are not static. Clouds are composed of tiny particles of water and are constantly changing and moving. In this video produced for Teachers' Domain, observe clouds forming, moving, and changing shape. No narration. Set to music with a few words on the screen. Run time 01:33.
