Congenital Heart Defects: Could the Developing Heart Hold the Key to New Therapies?
By: mcgheek Andrew M. Atz, M.D., Chief of the Division of Pediatric Cardiology at MUSC's Children's Hospital, and Kyu-Ho Lee, M.D., PhD, a developmental biologist at MUSC's Cardiovascular Developmental Biology Center, discuss how better understanding the gene signaling involved in the embryonic development of the heart could lead to new adjunctive therapies for congenital heart defects.

Is it Alive?
Despite technological advances that have produced machines with lifelike qualities, most people can easily distinguish between what is living and nonliving. Or can they? This video includes some "fuzzy" examples that will make students question the meaning of life. Words are listen on the screen and video is set to music. No narration. (03:02)
The Power of Touch
Why is touch so important to our physical and emotional well-being? And what happens when it is withheld? This video segment explores the role of touch in the development of young animals, including humans, and looks at the therapies parents are using to enrich the lives and minds of their infants and toddlers. Footage from NOVA: "Mystery of the Senses: Touch." Closed captioning included. Run time 02:57.
The Angle Game - Khan Academy This video uses an electronic black board with different-colored 'pens'. Using what we know about angles students need to figure out the measurement of the other angles in the figure that is drawn. The video should be paused then restarted for solution. Narrator mentions that this is good practice for SAT’s. This could also be a challenge for high level middle school students. Good quality video. Good for middle elementary

Climate Change and Worker Safety
Injury rates reported at America's poultry plants have dropped dramatically in recent years, and so have workplace safety inspections. Are regulators rewarding companies for inaccurate reporting of injuries? Bill Moyers Journal and Expose: America's Investigative Reports go inside America's poultry industry, which employs almost a quarter million workers nationwide, to show the reality of working conditions and to investigate how official statistics showing a drop in workplace injuries may hav
Iconoclastic Individualism - Henry David Thoreau, Part 2 of 3
Part 2 of 3 of this lecture on Thoreau's philosophy. The same male narrator speaks while a still image of Walden Pond is shown. Very well written explanation for readers of Thoreau, with substantiation by reading selections of Thoreau's words. "I am free because of what is in me." (9:10)

The Embryo Takes Shape
Genes direct the development of a growing embryo. But not all genes in a cell are active at any given time. Sometimes a cell's location in the developing embryo determines which genes get turned on and which genes stay inactive. This video segment from NOVA: "Life's Greatest Miracle" explores the developmental process of an embryo beginning just two weeks after fertilization. Closed captioning included. Run time 07:47.
Capturing design context in distributed communication of software engineers
Software engineering is a knowledge-intensive activity. It requires developers be aware of changing requirements, involvement of others, and the overall status of the project. Code, as the embodiment of developersâ intent, does not represent all knowledge required to work on the project successfully. Even in projects with the best software process practices, where requirement and design documents, bug databases, and source control software are kept up-to-date, most knowledge is still containe
1.9 Negative numbers Numbers can be positive or negative, i.e. greater than or less than zero. Negative numbers have several uses; for example, to measure temperatures below zero, such as −3°C (‘minus 3 degrees Celsius’). They are also used to represent debts and overdrawn accounts: a bank balance of −£84.33 means ‘overdrawn by £84.33’. Negative numbers are shown on the number line to the left of 0. The animation below shows −8, −7, −

The Detroit Auto Show kicks off with a return by Porsche and a focus on "green" from Toyota, Ford and all the big players, as the technology moves beyond a futuristic concept to reality.
All objects with mass attract and are attracted by all other objects with mass because of a force called gravity. The strength of gravity is proportional to the mass of the object. We are pulled to the Earth by it's gravitational forces but we also pull the earth towards us. Because we are much less massive than than the Earth, our gravitational pull is not strong enough to have any affect on it. Gravity pulls us towards Earth such that we accelerate at 9.8 m/s^2. &n
