The Virtual Body
The Virtual Body from MEDtropolis.com is an interactive overview of some of the basic structure and function of the human body. The site, available in both English and Spanish, is a mix of information and activities focused on four areas -- the brain, skeleton, heart, and digestive tract. The site's extensive array of diagrams and images, as well as its interactive nature, enhance the site's appeal and educational potential.

Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This virtual manipulative offers two modes for examining the patterns of multiples found on a grid displaying the numbers 2-200. In one mode, the student clicks a number on the grid, turning it red and removing all multiples of the number from the grid. This process can be repeated until only prime numbers remain. In the other mode, the student highlights one or two numbers, with multiples of the first turning red and the second blue. In both modes, number patterns and relationships can be obser

Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
In this online activity, students analyze predictions made by sportswriters about which basketball teams will win to determine which teams are playing each other. The Getting Started link describes how to set up a table to organize the given information. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site, where real-world uses of mathematics are emphasized. The solution illustrates and explains three different ways to successfully organize information, includ
Auburn vs. Vanderbilt (1955)
"Stealing some of the spirit usually "reserved" for Auburn, the Vanderbilt Commodores stopped the Tigers' bid for a second straight bowl victory by winning, 25-13, in the Gator Bowl Classic at Jacksonville, Florida. Before a near capacity crowd of 35,000, the Commodores scored in each period of their first bowl appearance in the school's history. Junior quarterback Don Orr, who dislocated his right elbow in Vanderbilt's final regular season game with Tennessee and was listed as a doubtful starte

Ensuring Community-Level Research Protections
Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) and the Tuskegee University National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care (the Bioethics Center) sponsored an Educational Conference Call Series on Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) and Ethical Issues in Research that took place between February 2007 and June 2007, which advanced their shared goal of meaningfully involving communities in decisions made about every aspect of research. The call series was intended to increase understandi
Welcome to the Dzanga-Sangha
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they take a close look at the interdependence of all living things in the Dzanga-Sangha. The site opens by introducing kids to BaAka, a young girl who will guide them through the site. In the Connect the Dots, an interactive game, kids learn how the people, animals, and plants depend on each other to thrive three habitats.
Types of Compound Leaves
This illustrated guide is designed to help students recognize and learn the different types of compound leaves. The single Web page can be easily printed for use at field sites. Along with a short description, an illustration that identifies a leaflet and petiole is included for each type: pinnate (odd) twice pinnate pinnate (even) palmate.
Fiddle Tunes of the Old Frontier
Fiddle Tunes of the Old Frontier: The Henry Reed Collection is a multi-format ethnographic field collection of traditional fiddle tunes performed by Henry Reed of Glen Lyn, Virginia. Recorded by folklorist Alan Jabbour in 1966-67, when Reed was over eighty years old, the tunes represent the music and evoke the history and spirit of Virginia's Appalachian frontier. Many of the tunes have passed back into circulation during the fiddling revival of the later twentieth century. This online collectio
California Gold: Northern California Folk Arts from the Thirties
This is a multi-format ethnographic field collection project, undertaken during the New Deal, that includes sound recordings, still photographs, drawings, and written documents from a variety of European ethnic and English- and Spanish-speaking communities in Northern California.
Chicano y Chicana: income differences among the largest U. S. Hispanic population
This study focuses on the wage gap between Mexican American men and Mexican American women, and factors contributing to this disparity. People of Mexican descent make up 67% of the U.S. Hispanic population. Previous research tends to lump Hispanics together, masking differences between groups. Even more, studies considering Hispanic subgroups rarely examine gender differences on income. Using secondary data analysis of the March 2005 Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplemen

Asymptotic fusion performance in a power constrained, distributed wireless sensor network
The performance of decentralized detection in power constrained wireless sensor network is analyzed. We consider two distributed processing schemes; the analog relay amplifier local processing and the quantized decision local processing. In the first model, the system is assumed to be subjected to a total power constraint and the distributed nodes are assumed to perform analog relay amplifier local processing. Under these assumptions, we show that, we can monotonically improve the fusion perform
Protective bollard design for high speed impact energy absorption
As is passenger safety of paramount importance to the manufacturer of passenger vehicles, so is the security of the nation to its government. Recent developments in the usage of heavy vehicles by militant outfits to carry out attack has become the main concern of many governments around the world, hence the existence of some kind of barrier to stop heavy vehicles from entering restricted areas was thought of. This barrier must be able to provide both visibility and security without being much ex
