Talking to Camera
A new one-day course at the Department for Continuing Education taught by Paul Heiney, writer and broadcaster, this course is intended to help people face a video camera with confidence, and communicate through the fast-growing video media. The course (details are available on the Department for Continuing Education's website) aims to help you understand the basic rules of a better video performance.
Movement of Blood cells (view at the cellular level)
The circulatory system of humans is closed, meaning that blood is enclosed by blood vessels. This image is that of an open system, meaning the blood moves freely throughout the body. In both systems, blood is pumped to the tissues of the body and then nutrients diffuse into the cells of those tissues.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Motor - Sitting
Independent sitting is accomplished by 6 to 8 months. This baby has good sitting posture (head erect and spine straight) and has enough stability to reach for objects with both hands. He even stretches to obtain an object without loosing his balance. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous system, with an emphasis on important neurodevelopmental milestones.
Tidal Streams in Massive X-ray Binary Systems
A tiny neutron star orbits incessantly around a massive star with a diameter a million times larger than its own. The high luminosity of the massive star drives a strong wind from its surface. The neutron star crashes through this wind at over 300 kilometers per second. The gravity and X-ray luminosity of the neutron star act to disrupt the wind, producing an extended wake of dense gas trailing behind the neutron star. In this simulation, the tidal distortion of the primary star and the resultan
Motion in the R-Aquarii Jet 1991, 1992, 1993: Image Deconvolution of 1992 Data
Images from the Hubble Space Telescopes Faint Object Camera from 1991, 1992, and 1993 demonstrate motion in the R Aguarii emission jet. Since images from this period were still affected by the primary mirror flaw, the images were restored to the original design resolution using the maximum entropy method.
Mars Odyssey Epithermal Neutron Data overlayed on MGS-MOLA Topography Data (Full Globe, Smoothed)
Mars Odysseys Gamma-ray spectrometer (GRS) instrument has detected large amounts of Hydrogen on Mars, particularly near the south pole. This is an indication that water ice exists in the upper meter of these areas of the Martian surface. The epithermal neutron data ranges from 0 to about 12 counts per second. The blue areas indicate high concentrations of Hydrogen (low epithermal neutron counts). A series of animations was generated to support a Space Science Update (SSU) on the topic. These ani
NEAR views the Asteroid Eros (true color)
Views of the asteroid Eros generated by data from the laser range finder. The 3-D model was generated from laser range finder data and the color was applied based on color images.
Mt. Pinatubo 10th Anniversary Perspective (Stills)
This recent false color Landsat-7 image, from January 2001, shows Mt. Pinatubo as it stands today. The caldera is seen in the middle of the image, underneath clouds. Ten years after the blast, vegetation is re-growing on the slopes of the mountain (in green.) Streams of mud, called lahars, (resulting from ash from the eruption mixing with water- seen as the lighter sediment) continue to flow down the sides of the mountains, as well as channels of water (darker streams). However, as vegetation gr
Persuasive Writing in Advertisements - Literacy Ideas I recently had this PowerPoint presentation sent to me by a colleague which has some great lesson content for students about the use of persuasive language in advertising. It identifies the type of language that advertisers use to sell and promote their products and encourages students to use this language in their own writing. I hope you enjoy it and if you have any great resources you would like to share with us plea

Surfing the Long Tail of Education
This presentation outlines how the postgraduate programme in the Media School at LCC/UAL uses web 2.0 tools on the online Masters in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography to develop a collaborative virtual community of practice, drawing on Schon’s (1983) concept of the “practicum” as a “virtual world” between the realities of business and the rarefied atmosphere of the academic world.

Student Report: Vox-pop on federal election -- Will Concordians vote on May 2?
http://now.concordia.ca http://www.elections.ca Canadians are headed to the ballot box for another federal election on May 2nd. News is buzzing about party platforms, leaders are crisscrossing the country and finger-pointing between politicians continues. Given the current political climate and the complexity of issues, experts predict fewer young voters (25-years-old and less) will exercise their democratic right to vote. On the other hand, many young voters feel it's their duty to vote -- eve
