PediNeuroLogic Exam: 2 1/2 Years Old: Motor/Reflexes - Deep Tendon Reflexes
This segment of the exam illustrates the problems associated with obtaining deep tendon reflexes. The reflex hammer is turned into a horse and initially she allows the examiner to test the right upper extremity. Notice that after testing for the brachioradialis reflex she becomes uncooperative. One of the ways to reduce apprehension in the child is to place your thumb or index finger over the tendon to be examined and tap on it rather than directly tapping on the child's tendon. It's less threat
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 18 Month Old: Normal: Fine Motor/Coordination - Drawing/Scribbling
An 18 month old child can hold a pen and imitates scribbling or can scribble spontaneously. At this age he is holding the pen between the thumb and first 3 fingers and is developing a tripod position of the hand for drawing. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.

What is "Computer Science" ?
Hal Abelson gives an introduction to the "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" lecture with an explanation of Declarative and Imperative programming.
Excerpted and adapted from Hal Abelson, "Introductory Undergraduate Subjects in Computer Science":-
6.001 differs from typical introductory computer science subjects in using Scheme (a block-structured dialect of Lisp) rather than Pascal as its programming vehicle. The subject's developers feel strongly that Pascal
Panel 1: The Vision of HSR in California: Mobility, Sustainability and Smart Growth
California's population may reach 60 million by 2050. This growth will require major new investments in transportation. Choices include expanded, highways, airports, rail systems, and transit, innovative operations and management, more effective pricing, and better-coordinated land use and transportation. How might a well-integrated HSR system contribute to California's future? This session will review the current state of the California HSR project and its role in supporting the state's enviro
An expensive abuse of justice? Why current habeas corpus must be reformed
The legal safeguard habeas corpus is being used in ways it was never intended, resulting in a costly waste of scarce legal resources and taxpayer dollars, according to two researchers who have studied thousands of habeas cases.

Optimal Organism Design and Costs for Not Being Perfect
Optimal means the best, but organisms often solve multiple problems so any one problem is not solved best. An optimal function is produced for sugar ingestion rates versus sucrose concentration through butterfly proboscides and pipets by humans. A choice experiment is performed using probing by a butterfly proboscis toward one of two concentrations of sucrose. A non-optimal system is then studied: cylindrical container designs by businesses where surface area (cost) is least when height equals d
