Science of virus diversity 2
Phylogenetic analysis of pathogenic retroviruses isolated from primate in the world, mainly in Africa is explained and the origin and evolution of pathogenic retroviruses are discussed. Studies on pathogenicity of AIDS virus and development of vaccine and therapy for AIDS using monkey model are introduced.
Mathematical Description of Natural Phenomena
This lecture is going to let students learn mathematics literacy applied to realistic problems according to the differentiation and integration which play an important role not only in the explanation of physical phenomenon, but also in the explanation of natural phenomenon, social phenomenon, and so on. In other words, after learning various forms of differential equations applied to realistic problems, we can say that the fundamental or more complicated phenomena will become universal after de
The Energy of Light
In this introduction to light energy, students learn about reflection and refraction as they learn that light travels in wave form. Through hands-on activities, they see how prisms, magnifying glasses and polarized lenses work. They also gain an understanding of the colors of the rainbow as the visible spectrum, each color corresponding to a different wavelength.
4.1 Introduction Some projects, especially large-scale ones, will rely on a team, not just an individual, for their successful implementation. Unlike permanent work teams, a project team's objective is the achievement of a finite and specific task – the project. Its performance, especially its ability to perform effectively as a group, is therefore critical to a project's outcome. However, it may prove relatively difficult for a project team to work well together at the outset, since its members are often d

How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.

Module One: Interpersonal Relationships
The present module entitled "Intra-Personal Relationship Skills" will address several components such as self esteem and self improvement, values education, goal setting and time management, substance use and abuse, heritage and finally, wellness and care which will focus on nutrition, fitness and stress management. This will provide learners the opportunity to use basic self development concepts and strategies that promote self respect and high self-esteem. They will develop an understanding of
Module 8: Medium- and Long-term Financing
Identify and arrange medium- and long-term finance for an overseas buyer (internal/external) to allow the buyer extended terms while providing cash payment to a seller without recourse. MSU Global has teamed with experts in the international finance field to create resources to help increase international skills in the business community. These materials address the need of the international trade practitioner for knowledge and information that is specific to trade finance by providing a means

Public Speaking with Confidence ( Sean McArdle, Part 1)
This professionally-made video features Sean McArdle, a master motivator and speaker, explaining the importance/benefits of practicing a speech before actually presenting it. He recommends practicing in a safe spot, such as in front of a mirror, to develop confidence and relieve nervousness. ( 1:32)
Kepler - A Search for Habitable Planets
The Kepler Mission is part of NASA's Discovery Program, a series of lower-cost, highly focused planetary science investigations designed to enhance understanding of the solar system. This webpage describes how Kepler, scheduled for launch in 2006, will use a unique spaceborne telescope specifically designed to search for Earth-like planets around stars beyond our solar system. It will look for the "transit" signature of planets. A transit occurs each time a planet crosses the line-of-sight betwe
Moby, Legacy Apps and the Semantic Web
Presentation given at the Web Services Biohackathon '08 in Tokyo, Japan 2008-02-11. It describes tools for using and providing interoperable bioinformatics Web services. This presentation followed another one outlining the (Bio)Moby protocol and its usage, see www.biomoby.org for more information. Presenter: Paul Gordon.

Goldstone Apple Valley Radio Telescope
This is a fact sheet describing the GAVRT program. This educational program uses a 34-meter antenna for classroom radio astronomy observations via the Internet The GAVRT Project introduces students in grades elementary through high school to the process of science with the goal of improving science literacy among American students.
Discovering Yardsticks are Metersticks
This lesson uses a simple discrepant event to demonstrate the underlying cause for early miscalculation of the size of the Milky Way galaxy. Grades 9-12.
How to Use a Protractor

Learn with Pictures and Video S4 #18 - Japanese Expressions That Help with the Housework 2
Having your own place in Japan has been amazing! You have so much freedom, and it’s quiet when you need peace to study Japanese. The worst thing about having your own place is keeping it nice and tidy. Deciding that a little clutter doesn’t interrupt your Japanese practice, you’ve put the dusting and the dishes [...]
Black holes are formed when extremely large star dies. When a star dies, it first expands, then contracts. Large stars contract until their atoms collapse, pulling the electrons into the nucleus. The immense strength of the gravitational force of a black hole pulls all nearby matter in, even light (which has mass). (02:28)
Using Nature to Grow Batteries
Inspired by an abalone shell, Angela Belcher programs viruses to make elegant nanoscale structures that humans can use. Selecting for high-performing genes through directed evolution, she's produced viruses that can construct powerful new batteries, clean hydrogen fuels and record-breaking solar cells. At TEDxCaltech, she shows us how it's done. (10:26)
