Optical Powers: Telescopes and Imaging
Many astronomy curricula tap young people's natural curiosity about the universe. Generating interest in astronomical images is not a problem. The challenge is providing an approach that engages students in scientific thinking and analysis of images that leads to an understanding of the technology of telescopes, optical systems, and imaging cameras. Our effort has been to find a way for teachers with only minimal experience in this area to guide their students efficiently through the maze of

Cracking Caitlin's Code
This is a creative approach to teaching basic skills involved in the formal visual analysis of works of art. Students will learn how to interpret artworks in cultural and historical contexts by becoming "art detectives." Students will analyze Catlin's formal compositions to learn about the Native American leaders he painted. They will examine visual clues and write a final "case summary" in which they "crack Catlin's code."
Structural analysis of the evolution of steroid specificity in the mineralocorticoid and glucocortic
Background The glucocorticoid receptor (GR) and mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) evolved from a common ancestor. Still not completely understood is how specificity for glucocorticoids (e.g. cortisol) and mineralocorticoids (e.g. aldosterone) evolved in these receptors. Results Our analysis of several vertebrate GRs and MRs in the context of 3D structures of human GR and MR indicates that with the exception of skate GR, a cartilaginous fish, there is a deletion in all GRs, at the position corresp
NASA KSNN How much is money worth?
Many items have been used as money throughout the world. Cattle, cowry shells, feathers, salt, ivory, whales' teeth, jewelry, and tools have been used as money for some societies. North American Indians used Wampum, strings of white beads made from clam shells, as money. Eventually, most societies used coins and paper money for trade. It's easy to see that the other forms of money might become cumbersome, although today some societies still use and prefer barter in place of money.
Ethno-linguistic Fragmentation, Discrimination, and Access to Clean Water in Mexico
Access to water is very unequal in Mexico and indigenous municipalities are particularly disadvantaged. The paper analyzes empirically the unequal access to water across Mexican municipalities and across individuals for the period of 2000-2005 using regression analysis. The contributions of this paper are two-fold. First, it expands the focus of the literature of ethnic fragmentation and public good provisions from level to distribution; and second, it presents an ethnic fractionalizat
"Labor Has To Be International:" David Abdulah Describes Workers Strategies for Organizing Transnati
The power, global reach, and flexibility of multi-national corporations increased dramatically during the 1980's and 1990's as a revolution in communications technology and the increasing adoption of free trade agreements between countries allowed companies to shift production easily from one part of the globe to another. Many companies could now pressure labor unions by negotiating favorable contracts wherever labor costs and local tax laws suited them. However, the increasingly interwoven glob
"The Workers, Once Again, Seem to Have Fallen by the Wayside:" The Impact of September 11th on Airli
The economic impact of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center most immediately affected workers in the airline and tourist industries.

Within weeks of the attack, airlines laid off tens of thousands of workers and threatened to lay off more. President George W. Bush and the U.S. Congress quickly responded, offering $5 billion in cash gran
