PediNeuroLogic Exam: 12 Month Old: Normal: Behavior - Shy
Infants at 12 months of age are often shy and have stranger anxiety. Most of the neurological exam can be performed with the child on his parent's lap. The parent helps reassure the child and facilitates the exam. This infant is shy and frequently looks to his father for reassurance. The examiner uses toys to try to engage the child in play and overcome the shyness. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurological examination that are unique to the child's nervous
ESD.00 Introduction to Engineering Systems (MIT)
Students in ESD.00 work on projects to address large, complex and seemingly intractable real-world problems, such as energy supply, environmental issues, health care delivery, and critical infrastructure (e.g., telecommunications, water supply, and transportation). The course introduces interdisciplinary approaches - rooted in engineering, management, and the social sciences - to considering these critical contemporary issues. Small, faculty-led teams select an engineering systems term project t

"Sonnet 4 - Unthrifty Loveliness, Why Dost Thou Spend..." by William Shakespeare (poetry reading)
Shakespeare was fond of puns. At the time this was written, the word "spend" at the end of the first line had a double meaning. It meant to ejaculate. They had the idea that the body made only a limited supply of procreative fluid - and that it deteriorated in quality with expenditure. The poem advises the young man to ration his usage of semen to create an heir and pass on his beauty - and not use it "for having traffic with thyself alone". It's interesting that they were aware that se
