Gary Taubes spoke to Googlers in Mountain View on May 2, 2011 about his book Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. About the book: An eye-opening, myth-shattering examination of what makes us fat, from acclaimed science writer Gary Taubes. Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories, Taubes revisits the urgent question of what's making us fat and how we can change in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubess crucial

Subliminal Advertising: Affecting the Subconscious (Anthony Greenwald)
Do subliminal images in advertising affect your purchases? Anthony Greenwald, professor of psychology at the University of Washington, discusses the growing trend in this 1993 interview with Upon Reflection host Marcia Alvar. Greenwald examines the unconscious mind, its environmental processing and the simple work it does. He questions the validity of subliminal self-help tapes and suggests that the positive results could be a placebo effect.

Vídeo de Prof. Ikeda sobre Matemática Discreta
Headline news scares about stolen or missing data are becoming a frequent occurrence as organisations rely more and more heavily on computers to store sensitive corporate and customer information. This unit discusses the importance of protecting information and gives an overview of information security management systems.
Trainieren Sie Ihr Hörverstehen mit authentischen Materialien. Nutzen Sie die Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Donnerstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei. Der geschäftsführende Direktor des Internationalen Währungsfonds, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, tritt zurück. Auf der Internetseite des IWF wurde eine Erklärung veröffentlicht, in der der 62-jährige Franzose schreibt, mit der Entscheidung wolle er seine Familie und das Ansehen des Fonds schützen. Zugleich wies
Students explore pollination using two exercises: an ant- and a butterfly-activity. In the ant-exercise, students generate hypotheses for why reports of ant pollination are rare, test one or more hypothesis, and present their findings. In addition to this open-ended inquiry investigation, instructions are also provided for a structured activity in which students germinate pollen and test whether ant-secretions inhibit pollen growth as has been proposed in the scientific literature. In the butter
Gregarines are members of the Phylum Apicomplexa that parasitize invertebrates. All of the Apicomplexans are parasitic and include some of medical and veterinary importance (e.g., malaria). Gergarines may be safely studied in highly parasizited hosts such as earthworms and mealworms that are readily available from bait shops and pet stores. Various life cycle stages are easily visible under the dissecting microscope in student laboratories.
In this computer-assisted exercise first-year students explore the fundamental concept of allometry: the study of size and its consequences. Students examine the relationship between size and shape and learn how to quantify changes in proportions. They investigate how North American mammals of various sizes change proportions to compensate for changes of surface area and volume. Interactive computer programs aid each student in calculating standard dimensions from an Audubon illustration, proces
Students design and carry out an experimental procedure that will allow them to determine the effect of an experimental variables on pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory volumes, or other related cardiopulmonary functions such as rate of breathing.
A laboratory to demonstrate the use of the "Darwin 2000" website to train undergraduates to use online molecular databases and analysis tools, fostering their understanding of how genes and proteins evolve.
If there is one thing that makes you different from other animals, it is your extraordinary ability to think. Like other thinking species, humans don't just react to the world as it is: We reflect on the past, imagine what could be, and then plan ways to make our thoughts become reality. Our brain's advanced outer layer, or cortex, enables us to remember past events and predict the future consequences of our actions before we make decisions. We can think about thinking, and use language to excha
