Crews Speak with Pope Benedict XVI
The STS-134 and Expedition 27 crews joined together in the Kibo module for a special call from Pope Benedict XVI.
Western Regional Climate Center
This website provides internet access to climate data and information for the Western Region of the United States. Information has been made accessible in the areas of historical climate, WRCC projects, current observation, forecasts, monitoring, education, and travel. The web-accessible information presented on this site has been derived from data received from the National Climatic Data Center, the National Weather Service, the National Resource Conservation Service, the Bureau of Land Managem
LSD causes painful cluster headaches, uterine pain, and sleeplessness, although effects vary from person to person. Users of LSD may also experience loss of identity, start hallucinating, or wander around in a state of dissociative fugue.
Living and non-living things
Living things often rely on non-living things to accomplish daily tasks. Living things have several characteristics that non-living things do not, such as the ability to move, eat, breathe, and reproduce. Living things and non-living things can interact even though they do not have the same characteristics.
Lichens with bacteria on a rock in the forest
Lichens consisting of algae, fungi, and bacteria are able to extract nutrients from the rock. Bacteria is able to fix nitrogen for the lichen. Lichens are important decomposers.
Lichen with spore producing structures from the fungi
Lichens are made of fungi and algae. Fungi cannot make their own food and depend on the algae for food (photosynthesis). The fungi provide a water source for the algae. The fungi also provide the reproductive structure for the lichen.
Community based Physical Therapy
In this lecture, students are going to learn about the history, the society background and the system of Regional Physiotherapy for the preparation and the understanding of the practical side of Regional Physiotherapy. Moreover, we will have suggestions by the physiotherapists and occupational therapists working on the front-line.
Economic History 2
The events leading up to Pax Americana of the late 20th century from the height of Pax Britanica of the mid-19th century are illustrated in two steps, 1.) The United Statesfs succession of the British Empire, and 2.) solving the problem of postwar Germany.

Molecular Classification - Prof. Chris Man (Part 1)
Recent advances in genomic and proteomic technologies have revolutionized our way of classifying diseases. These high-throughput technologies allow the development of powerful and multivariate classifiers to distinguish different diseases or tumors based on their molecular profiles. Molecular classification provides a new way to distinguish histologically similar but molecularly different types of tumors, and hence improves tumor diagnosis and prognosis. In this course, we introduce major concep
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.
Modern proteomes contain putative imprints of ancient shifts in trace metal geochemistry
Because of the rise in atmospheric oxygen 2.3 billion years ago (Gya) and the subsequent changes in oceanic redox state over the last 2.3–1 Gya, trace metal bioavailability in marine environments has changed dramatically. Although theorized to have influenced the biological usage of metals leaving discernable genomic signals, a thorough and quantitative test of this hypothesis has been lacking. Using structural bioinformatics and whole-genome sequences, the Fe-, Zn-, Mn-, and Co-binding metall

Strong shaking in Los Angeles expected from southern San Andreas earthquake
The southernmost San Andreas fault has a high probability of rupturing in a large (greater than magnitude 7.5) earthquake sometime during the next few decades. New simulations show that the chain of sedimentary basins between San Bernardino and downtown Los Angeles form an effective waveguide that channels Love waves along the southern edge of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains. Earthquake scenarios with northward rupture, in which the guided wave is efficiently excited, produce unusua
Bob Geldof's Band Aid

Учет гендерных аспектов: Учебное пособие
The training manual can be used for the orientation of policy-makers, curriculum developers, media professionals, adult learners and the public at large. It is organized into ten sections that build on, one another to sharpen participants’ understanding of gender-biased thinking within, and all around, them.
The Sweet Truth: Unraveling the Myths and Mysteries of Fructose
Professor Mark Kern of San DIego State University gave the UA's spring Well U lecture on March 9, 2011. Reading labels at the grocery store can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to the slew of sugars that might pop up on the ingredients list. Do you really know the difference between sucrose, high fructose corn syrup, agave nectar and so on? To help clear up some of the confusion, Mark Kern, a professor in the department of exercise and nutritional sciences at San Diego State University
