Listen: History of blood transfusion speaks to stem cell debate
Holly Tucker, an associate professor of French, has written a fascinating early history of blood transfusions that reads like an eerie murder mystery. Blood Work: A Tale of Medicine and Murder in the Scientific Revolution has implications for modern ethical dilemmas such as cloning and stem cell procedures.
North Caucasus: A Journey Through Russia's Killing Zone
In the southwest corner of Russia, an Islamist insurgency has spread out of Chechnya into neighboring regions of the North Caucasus and is claiming hundreds of lives a year. Moscow-based reporter Tom Parfitt set out on a journey through five Russian republics -- Kabardino-Balkaria, North Ossetia, Ingushetia, Chechnya and Dagestan -- to examine the roots of the conflict and to find out what drives young men to join the rebels.

"A WikiTextBook for Introductory Mechanics, Fall 2009"
"This e-Book is a first step toward a shift in the role of the printed textbook from authoritative serial repository to modular, customizable, linkable, interactive hub. The ideal modern textbook should provide a clear overview of the domain, short summaries of key content, links to more detailed online source material, embedded self-assessment, and a vehicle for instant student feedback. This open-source e-Book for introductory mechanics uses ideas from modeling physics to encourage strategic,
Sensory Exam: Normal Exam: Graphesthesia
Graphesthesia is the ability of the patient to identify characters that are written on the skin using a dull pointed object. The examiner demonstrates the test by writing single numbers on the palm of the hand while the patient is watching. The patient then closes their eyes and identifies numbers that are written by the examiner. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to fu

This unit is the second in the MSXR209 series of five units on mathematical modelling. In this unit you are asked to relate the stages of the mathematical modelling process to a previously formulated mathematical model. This example, that of skid mark produced by vehicle tyres, is typical of accounts of modelling that you may see in books, or produced in the workplace. The aim of this unit is to help you to draw out and to clarify mathematical modelling ideas by considering the example. It assum
This unit introduces the topic of differential equations. The subject is developed without assuming that you have come across it before, but it is taken for granted that you have a basic grounding in calculus. In particular, you will need to have a good grasp of the basic rules for differentiation and integration.
1.2 Audio files
This unit looks at complex numbers. You will learn how they are defined, examine their geometric representation and then move on to looking at the methods for finding the nth roots of complex numbers and the solutions to simple polynominal equations.
Pharmacy school tests students in real-world scenarios
Students in the Harrison School of Pharmacy continue to consider the Objective Structured Clinical Exam to be one of the more difficult exams required in the school. But next year, the difficulty rises to a new level, with much more at stake than ever before -- graduation. Since 2005, with the start of a new curriculum, the school has used the OSCE (pronounced "ah-skee") to test students on the objectives covered each semester for three years in the skills lab course, Contemporary Aspects of P
Mean Value Theorem
This video explains the mean value theorem. The mean value
theorem is essentially just the average slope of the graph in a closed interval. This is just the mean (average) value theorem which states that the average slope is equal to a prime of a point c. The video is 16:47 in length and is done with a smart board and narrator.
