A Cow's Digestion
Cows are ruminants, animals with a unique digestive system that allows them to live on otherwise unpalatable foods by repeatedly regurgitating and rechewing them as "cud." The cud is then swallowed again and further digested by specialized bacterial, protozoal and fungal microbes that live in the rumen, one of the four compartments of a cow's stomach. Learn more about a cow's digestive system in this video segment from Nature. Closed captioning included. Run time 01:35.
Stable Mineral Assemblages in Metamorphic Rocks
This 81-slide PowerPoint presentation reviews the phase rule in terms of metamorphic systems, using the brucite-periclase system as an example. Binary and ternary chemographic diagrams are used to explain compatibility in mineral assemblages. The presentation covers ternary diagrams for complicated systems, ACF and AKF diagrams, projections from apical phases, and J.B. Thompson's A(K)FM diagram is used as an alternative tool to apply to pelitic rocks. Lastly, a set of rules is laid out to help c
Year 2010. The need of mobility has grown to excess since the first years of the millennium. That's why Tuboflex inc., the world's leading Human Resources Services organisation, created a complex tube system that make it possible to dislocate employees in real time, depending on demand.

From the Heart
This video segment describes how the chambers of the heart contract and relax in synchrony to push blood through the pulmonary and systemic loops of the circulatory system. You'll see how the heart pumps oxygen-depleted blood to the lungs, where red blood cells acquire oxygen before travelling back to the heart and then on to the rest of the body. The video is nice illustration of how the circulatory and respiratory systems work together to carry in oxygen and remove waste. Closed captioning i
How the Body Responds to Excercise
This video segment adapted from NOVA describes the effect of exercise on the body and defines one measure used to gauge aerobic fitness. VO2 max (maximal volume of oxygen uptake) is a measurement of how well the body gets and consumes the oxygen that muscles need in order to sustain activity. Learn how the entire cardiovascular system benefits from exercise and how the body's response to the demands of physical activity is a survival mechanism. Nice illustration of how the respiratory,circulator
