This is the greatest legacy that we can pass on to the young people of the new millennium.

Educational Psychology

Teaching as a career has distinctive features now that did not figure as prominently in its profile a generation ago.

Smart contact lenses at Auburn could make eye drops a thing of the past
An Auburn University team of chemical and biomedical engineers led by Mark Byrne, the Daniel F. and Josephine Breeden associate professor in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering, has developed a new method to deliver eye medication by wearing contact lenses.

C'est ce que nous montrent les grenouilles Xenopus laevis qui se reproduisent dans les étangs africains.

Mémoires de l'esclavage dans la société guyanaise
Au début, des commémorations sporadiques de l'abolition de l'esclavage ont eu lieu. Puis en 1998, pour le 150° anniversaire, une véritable fièvre commémorative se répand dans les anciennes colonies ayant connu l'esclavagisme.
