Afghanistan: A Case for Alternative Energy
Without a national power grid, some isolated communities in Afghanistan rely on wind and solar systems to generate affordable energy in this four minute video. This video is best used to show how nature can supply energy in the most remote of areas. A good way to introduce problem solving questions related to energy and to remove the idea that developing nations can't use technology.
Ecology and The Biosphere
Thanks to Apollo 11's photographs of Earth from space, ecology was fundamentally changed in the 1960's. A book about DDT was also published in the late 1960's. This video begins by giving a brief history on the changes that have occured in the area of ecology. The video then goes on the address the levels of organization: organism, population, community, ecosystem, biome, and biosphere. Other key vocabulary words in this video include: biotic, abiotic, climate, aquatic biomes, estuary, ter

UBC Talk on Open Notebook Science and Libraries
I presented a talk about Open Notebook Science and the implications for the future of libraries for Heather Morrison's class at the School of Libraries at the University of British Columbia on April 2, 2008. We did this over Skype so the questions are not very clear in the audio.
Calisphere Themed Collection - 1780-1880: California in Transition: Californio Society, 1830s-1880s
This is a primary source photo collection on Californios, elite families that received large land grants from Spain and Mexico, flourished during the 1830s to 1880s. The hand-drawn diseño maps underscore their vital connection to land ownership. The more formal surveyed maps that followed US acquisition of California show changing values regarding land ownership. As Californios lost land and power in the late 19th century, they tried to adapt to these changes by using social networks to maintai
Matthew Meselson and Franklin Stahl hypothesized that DNA could replicate in any of three ways. They used isotopes of nitrogen to label DNA for their experiments to find which one of the methods was used for DNA replication. They came to the conclusion that DNA replicates via the semi-conservative method.

Specific protein associations define the wiring of protein interaction networks and thus control the organization and functioning of the cell as a whole. Peptide recognition by PDZ and other protein interaction domains represents one of the best-studied classes of specific protein associations. However, a mechanistic understanding of the relationship between selectivity and promiscuity commonly observed in the interactions mediated by peptide recognition modules as well as its functional meaning
