This article summarizes the update of the prior guideline on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic heart failure in adults.
Silverlight TV 73: What's New in MVVM Light Laurent Bugnion of IdentityMine appears on the show to discuss his latest additions to the MVVM Light toolkit for both Silverlight, WPF, and Windows Phone. Laurent covers several new features, including IoC (Inversion of Control) containers, new ways to implement INotifyPropertyChanged using lambdas and/or reflection, and changes to the Messenger class. Relevant links:

2.4.1 Organisation of brain cells Some findings that do appear to be more specific to dyslexia are various microscopic anomalies in the actual organisation of brain cells, reported from post-mortem studies (Galaburda et al., 1985). These include collections of slightly ‘misplaced’ cells (called ectopias) and some minor disordering of the regular layering of cells in the cortex. They are often particularly concentrated in left hemisphere regions involved in language processing, although their distribution varie

Harriet Beecher Stowe & "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
The story of the great anti-slavery novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe, a book that stirred the country against slavery just prior to the Civ...
Students write poems using rhyme and meter as they come to understand the mechanical concept of rhythm, based on the principle of oscillation, in a broader biological and cultural context, as seen in dance and sports, poetry and other literary forms, and communication in general. Note: The literacy activities for the Mechanics unit are based on physical themes that have broad application to our experience in the world concepts of rhythm, balance, spin, gravity, levity, inertia, momentum, frictio
Island Biogeography: Students Colonize Islands to Test Hypotheses
This highly interactive field biology exercise requires students to colonize islands on an outdoor lawn or indoor carpet with model species. The islands are squares of different sizes made from string. Students colonize the islands by throwing marked plastic petri plates at the islands from the "mainland." Extinctions of species on islands result when one plate lands on another. From their data, students estimate species immigration and extinction rates and obtain colonization curves for each is
Plant Growth Responses to a Nitrogen Gradient
Techniques used in setting up field experiments to study the growth responses of herbaceous plants to a resource gradient will be discussed and demonstrated in the field. Methods of setting up light and nutrient gradients, soil sampling, seed collection and preparation, data collection and analysis will be included. Participants will observe on-going studies in the field at the Cedar Creek Natural History Area, and view slides of smaller scale Puse experiments.
Design an Egyptian Playground
Students are broken up into four groups. Each group will use their knowledge about Egypt to originate a playground for Egyptian children. This will involve brainstorming ideas on paper, building a prototype with Legos or other material, and explaining their ideas to the class in a five-minute presentation.
TEDx McMaster U - Kyle Empringham
"Why Doesn't Everybody Care About the Environment?"
Klartext handlar i dag om att många människor har dödats efter stora tornado-stormar i USA. Vi berättar också om ett stort vulkan-utbrott på Island som kan göra det farligt att flyga med flygplan. Du får höra fler nyheter när du lyssnar på programmet.
This patient education program explains burns, the different degrees of burns, and how they may be treated. This resource is a MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.
Brain: The Inside Story's "Your Thinking Brain"
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
Great Zoom out of Chicago, IL: The Sears Tower
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl
This report outlines the process and findings from an innovative project for students. This work was part of the curriculum and involved students working with West Yorkshire Police as part of the safer Leeds project in designing and making a film for students n crime prevention and personal safety in Leeds
Drum Roll Please Activity
This activity develops the real-world connections and relationships between the rock properties found in Lesson 5 and the important engineering properties for designing and building caverns (or tunnels, mines, building foundations, etc.). The student teams will use importance factors called "desirability points" to mathematically determine the overall best rocks to build caverns within.
Ramsar Sites of Nepal
This article provides an overview of Ramsar Sites of Nepal
Hayden Planetarium: Educator's Activities
This series of activities provides a sample of possibilities for using the Digital Universe with your students. The activities were drafted in consultation with classroom teachers and museum experts, but have yet to be pilot tested in classrooms. They are an initial exploration into the educational possibilities for using the Digital Universe data set in the classroom.
The Perfect Purple Feather Read-Aloud Online Storybook
This read-aloud is The Perfect Purple Feather written by Hanoch Piven. Feeling a poke from within his pillow during the night, Jacob maneuvers a fluffy purple feather to the surface. Beginning with a bluebird in a nearby tree, various animals explain how they would put it to good use-as a wing, a pen, a tail, etc. When a tick tickles an elephant's nose with it, the elephant sneezes, causing the feather to fly through the sky, suggesting the possibility that it may land in the reader's bedro
