World Bank's Role in Democracy
Apr. 6 - In an exclusive interview with Reuters Insider, World Bank President Robert Zoellick discusses the role of the Bank in spreading democracy around the world.
Travel to Identity in the Mid-Nineteenth-to-Mid-Twentieth-Century Contact Zone of New Mexico: Knowle
This study assesses narrative representations of Euro-American and Native American travel and encounter in New Mexico. The primary purpose of the work is to explore the construction and authority of knowledge claims and identity through late nineteenth- and early-to-mid twentieth-century Euro-American and Native American travel to, and within, the contact zone of New Mexico. I examine Willa Cather’s Death Comes for the Archbishop, Mabel Dodge Luhan’s Edge of Taos Desert: An Escape to Reali
Summary Fact-sheet describing the three different types of rock -- igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary.
Investigating Animal Respiration with Electronic Probes
This computer-assisted investigation allows students to explore the effect of variables on animal respiration using research-quality instrumentation. The model investigation is with a lizard (anole) exposed to a range of temperatures that are only moderately stressful and do no harm. The animal is contained in a transparent chamber with gas inlet and outlet ports and an electronic thermometer. Carbon dioxide-free air is pumped at a constant rate into the chamber. The outgoing air enriched in car

You will learn how to converse with a doctor, you will learn how to write a doctor's note.
5.5 Energy budgeting – the benefits of hibernation and torpor
Hibernation is an ingenious adaptation that some animals employ to survive difficult conditions in winter. This unit examines the differences between hibernation and torpor, and discusses the characteristic signs of hibernation behaviour. It explores the triggers that bring on hibernation, and whether internal signals or external season cues are predominant. It also examines the physiological adaptations that occur in hibernating animals. This unit builds on and develops ideas introduced in the
"In the Shadow of Society": Migrant Workers and Unionists Urge Congress to Enact Effective Federal F
In the early 20th century, large-scale commercial agriculture displaced family farms, tenant farmers, and sharecroppers. Hand labor, however, remained more cost effective for harvesting certain fruits and vegetables. Farmworkers under this new system were hired only for seasonal work and had to travel frequently. The migratory experience left these workers--primarily Mexicans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Filipinos÷permanent outsiders and vulnerable to exploitation,
Terrorism, Peace, and Other Inconsistencies
This course addresses a set of inter-related questions that have become central to peace and security in the modern era, at both the domestic and international levels. What is the history and rationale for contemporary terrorism, including suicide terrorism? What does the rise of al-Qaeda terror mean for a host of problematic issues including the relationship between the Western and Islamic worlds, the future of peace in the Middle East, the future of various western foreign policy actions? What

Slide Right on By Using an Inclined Plane
Students explore building a pyramid, learning about the simple machine called an inclined plane. They also learn about another simple machine, the screw, and how it is used as a lifting or fastening device. During a hands-on activity, students see how the angle of inclination and pull force can make it easier (or harder) to pull an object up an inclined plane.
Sleeping Beauty Invades Rat's Genome
Knockouts are not just for Mice anymore. Aron Geurts and Howard Jacob from the Medical College of Wisconsin talk about their plans for creating transgenic rats using the Sleeping beauty transposon. Coming out of work pioneered by Colin Bishop's lab, Geurts and Jacob describe how the Sleeping Beauty system can be used to make transgenic rats and their plans to make the phenotype data from these rats available via the MCW PGA website (http://pga.mcw.edu) and the strains themselves accessible via a
Phase Relations in Reservoir engineering
In this course you will learn about phase relations as applied to oil and/or gas reservoir processes, enhanced oil recovery, gas pipeline transportation, natural gas processing and liquefaction, and other problems in petroleum production. The primary objective of the course is to apply the thermodynamics of phase equilibrium to the framework for phase behavior modeling of petroleum fluids. The focus of the course will be on equilibrium thermodynamics and its relevance to phase behavior predictio
2.7 Multiple-cause diagrams
The power of graphics should not the underestimated. They can express information clearly and simply. This unit will help you to assess which style of graphic to use in different situations.
Students learn a simple technique for quantifying the amount of photosynthesis that occurs in a given period of time, using a common water plant (Elodea). They can use this technique to compare the amounts of photosynthesis that occur under conditions of low and high light levels. Before they begin the experiment, however, students must come up with a well-worded hypothesis to be tested. After running the experiment, students pool their data to get a large sample size, determine the measures of
Tissue movement in bipopulation tumour cord growth
Simulation of tumor cord growth where conversion of the tumor to glycolytic (anaerobic) metabolism takes place under hypoxia. This video shows volume fraction of glycolytic cell population and velocity of tissue movement. Isolines show hypoxia limits for aerobic and anaerobic cell lines respectively. This video reflects work in progress and may be different from the final results.
Economic History & History of Thought
The factories that changed the world, 1.) the mule-powered spinning mill (Britain in the 1820s), 2.) from the American system to the Ford system (1900s), and 3.) Toyota Production System (Lean manufacturing), are contrasted and the progression of production systems of the 19th and 20th centuries are arranged in order.
