Students learn about Pascal’s law, an important concept behind the engineering of dam and lock systems, such as the one that Thirsty County wants Splash Engineering to design for the Birdseye River (an ongoing hypothetical engineering scenario). Students observe the behavior of water in plastic water bottles spilling through holes punctured at different heights, seeing the distance water spurts from the holes, learning how water at a given depth exerts equal pressure in all directions, and how
Ranking the Rocks
This lesson develops the real-world connections and relationships between the rock properties found in Lesson 5 and the important engineering properties for designing and building caverns (or tunnels, mines, building foundations, etc.). The student teams will use importance factors called “desirability points” to mathematically determine the overall best rocks to build caverns within.

Multi System Degeneration - Motor Exam - Screening Tests Sub-exam - Patient 6
Patient's speech is difficult to understand; loss of balance (fell off a truck); occasional choking spells, especially if he eats fast; bladder urgency; and slight impairment of memory. The patient returns for a follow-up with his wife. Since the last visit, he reports no significant changes. His speech is unchanged. Balance is the same with occasional falling. He has occasional choking spells, especially if he eats fast. He continues to have bladder urgency and an occasional accident, but he a
Postural and Kinetic Tremor - Coordination Exam - Upper Extremities Sub-exam - Patient 8
This 37-year-old left-handed white male has had tremors beginning in childhood, before he started school. Over the years, the tremors have slowly progressed in both upper extremities. Tremors have spread to affect the right leg. They are more pronounced in the left. Most of the time tremors are increased with anxiety and activity, but are also present at rest. There are no tremors in his feet. Because of the tremors, the patient cannot write, feed himself, use utensils, or even hold a cup. He c
How to Sauté and Roast Mushrooms
In this video, Chef Bill Briwa shows us how to properly sauté mushrooms. As he explains, the key is to start with a hot pan, cooking the mushrooms without moving them until they have completely browned on one side. In the second part of the video, Chef Briwa also demonstrates how to roast mushrooms to a perfect, golden brown with a tender but firm texture. Chef Briwa also shows us a great trick for marinating mushrooms. For more videos and recipes go to http://www.ciaprochef.com/mushrooms/vide

Moving and handling: application of principles
This RLO explains the importance of applying good moving and handling principles. It describes the basic anatomy, physiology and functions of the spine and the effects of age/cumulative stress changes and their relevance to moving and handling.
Introduction The media play a huge part in sport; we find out what's happening, how our team is doing and it creates great sporting moments and sports celebrities and stars. This unit looks at the role played by the media in sport and how this has changed with the development of internet and satellite TV. Who calls the shots – athletes, teams or the media moguls? How do social scientists explain this relationship between sport and the media? This material is from our archive and is an adapted extr

This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.,and their environment. Several competing models of ecological anthropology will be analyzed including materialist, symbolic, and systems approaches. The classroom approach will be that of a seminar in which we will all analyze and critique the various models and theoretical orientations put up for discussion.

ANSO 303-01 Medical Sociology, Fall 2005
This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office of Academic Affairs by the course instructor.,There is no better way to understand the practice of medical sociology than by conducting applied, fieldwork to address the causes of poor health and the barriers to health care access. For this reason, a major component of this course will involve applied research in a Memphis community known for its dismal epidemiological profile: the Hollywood/Springdale/Chelsea area (in zip code area 38108)

There are several key principles of neurodevelopment to keep in mind. First, the development of motor control proceeds in a head to toe fashion. The baby first develops head control, then trunk control (sitting), and finally controls the lower extremities (walking). Second, primitive reflexes (such as the Moro, grasp, and Galant) are normally present in the term infant and diminish over the next 4 to 6 months of life. The postural reflexes (such as the positive support reflex, Landau, lateral pr
