'O Panama,' 1985, a video drama, was created by James Benning, based on a story by Burt Barr. A series of short images or vignettes, some of which are repeated, build to tell the story of a feverish man (Willem Dafoe) in a city apartment remembering time he spent in Panama, probably as a soldier. The suggestion is that as he endures the fever, he is visited by recollections, visualizations, and hallucinations of other places and events. Early on in the work, words describing but not pinpointing
3.4 Biological approaches Certain kinds of psychological disturbances may be seen as ‘malfunctions’ of the brain. If a psychological problem has an obvious biological explanation, then it may be possible to direct therapeutic approaches at this level. However, as we have seen, it is difficult to identify precise biological causes for complex psychological phenomena. Even if this were possible, it would not always be practicable to use treatments to change the underlying biological factors. Genetic ‘exp

Using the General Social Survey to Investigate Social Relationships
In the first part of this exercise, students will learn (1) how to do preliminary data analysis using the General Social Survey (GSS); and (2) how to examine relationships between social constructs empirically. To carry out this study, whey will follow the basic procedures in social research and apply the concepts and techniques that have been discussed in class.
Chicken Skeleton - Ball and Socket Joint (Wing)
The chicken has large feet because it spends so much of its time on the ground. The ball and socket joints and hinge joints allow the chicken to move its leg. It uses its sharp claws mainly for defense against predators.
A Study of Trees
Facts about trees, plus activities that encourage children to observe, study and learn the functions of deciduous and evergreen tree parts.

På onsdagen handlade Klartext om de strids-flygplan som svenska militärer flyger över det arabiska landet Libyen. Socialdemokraternahar nu ändrat sig och vill ha kvar svenska militärer där nere. Vi berättade också att allt fler personer från Sydeuropa kommer till Sverige för att ska jobb, men ofta slutart det med att de blir utan både jobb och bostad.
16.842 Fundamentals of Systems Engineering (MIT)
This course introduces the principles and methods of Systems Engineering. Lectures follow the "V"-model of Systems Engineering, including needs identification, requirements formulation, concept generation and selection, trade studies, preliminary and detailed design, component and subsystem test and integration as well as functional testing and delivery and operations. Additional concepts such as tradeoffs between performance, cost and system operability will be discussed. Systems Engi

Students will be challenged to design and construct a tower out of newspaper. They will have limited supplies including newspaper, tape, and scissors since engineers are often restricted by economic reasons as to how much material they can use in their building. The students will be building for height and stability, and their towers must be designed to withstand a lateral "wind" load.
Reporter Genes and Transgenic Plants to Study Response to Environmental Signals
This resource provides detailed laboratory exercises and instructions for investigating bacterial responses to plant signaling chemicals.
Structural Evolution of the Protein Kinase-Like Superfamily
The protein kinase family is large and important, but it is only one family in a larger superfamily of homologous kinases that phosphorylate a variety of substrates and play important roles in all three superkingdoms of life. We used a carefully constructed structural alignment of selected kinases as the basis for a study of the structural evolution of the protein kinase-like superfamily. The comparison of structures revealed a “universal core” domain consisting only of regions required for
