largo de su carrera. Su destino sería una de las numerosas ermitas que había en el Jardín del Buen Retiro, probablemente la de San Pablo, por lo que se suele fechar hacia 1633.Cuenta la historia de la visita de San Antonio Abad a San Pablo, el primer ermitaño. (2:17)
Science Bulletins: Full Gene Set Decoded for Three More People
In June 2000, scientists triumphantly announced they had deciphered the full human genome—the 3.2 billion units of DNA that make up the blueprint for human life. This sequence was a composite of smaller segments of DNA from many individuals, arranged to make one complete strand. Sequencing this genome cost billions of dollars and took more than a decade using the laboratory tools and techniques developed at the time. Since then, faster and cheaper sequencing techniques have been developed. Now
Science Bulletins: Immune "Army" Can Fight HIV
Some people who contract the HIV virus stay healthy for decades. Scientists working towards HIV vaccines seek out these rare patients, who are called elite controllers. A recent study by researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, reveals one of the mechanisms behind their uncommon ability to ward off AIDS.
Science Bulletins: New Stem Cell Method Shows Promise
The University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers who turned ordinary skin cells into stem cells in 2007 have cleared a major safety concern of using those cells in research: their risk of cancer. Their previous process used a virus to insert several genes into the DNA of skin cells. The genetic code of these genes naturally reprograms cells to revert to their original stem cell state. There was just one problem—the new stem cells were cancer-prone. The team's new method uses a different vehicl

Butterfly Attacks Spider! Slow Motion Action
This may be the first time this type of aggressive butterfly behavior has ever been recorded... While in the process of selecting sites to lay her eggs on a nearby Passionvine plant, this female Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae incarnata) took a particular interest in the spider webs nearby. After hovering in one spot for a bit, she moved in close and started clawing away at the webs, apparently to get at or drive away the small "Daddy Longlegs" spider (Pholcus phalangioides) which was lu

Real Angry Birds! Slow Motion Allen's Hummingbirds--Fights and Bites
These aren't your average sweet little birdies! Both male and female hummingbirds of some species are quite aggressive, territorial, and vigorously defend their food sources against intruders. While those long, sharp bills may look like formidable stabbing weapons, the birds' head, neck and body weight just don't pack enough strength or mass to do much damage, so fights typically involve only mild biting and poking with the bill, and grabbing with the feet as well - not even with enoug

Aliens in my Orchids - Timelapse Strange Earth Lifeforms
Sometimes, we can find the strangest forms of life right here on Earth, without any Sci-Fi extra-terrestrial magic! While making these time-lapsed image sequences of Phalenopsis Orchids (also called "Moth" Orchids), I was surprised to see what looked like a little face staring out at me from inside the blossom as it opened! It was an odd-shaped, almost bird-like face with two large alien-looking eyes. Students will enjoy these beautiful, real life images. This is a great resource to help build b
