2.2 Scotland Having enjoyed political independence until 1707, the survival of many of Scotland's institutions – notably its systems of law, religion and education – after Union with England contributed to the preservation of its singular identity. The different way in which Scotland was incorporated into the UK, through a monarchical take-over rather than by conquest (as was the case in Wales and Ireland), may account for the lesser impact the development of the UK exerted on Scottish distinctiveness

Koch's Crickets: A Study in Etiology
Students apply Koch's Postulates in an attempt to discover the causative agent of "Pink Plague" a disease that has struck a group of commercially raised crickets. During the course of this exercise the students will isolate the suspected pathogen from one of a group of infected crickets. They will then characterize the isolated organism and use it to infect a new group of crickets to see if they can reproduce the same symptoms in the newly infected group. Reisolation of the suspected pathogen fr

Must America Embrace Empire to Be Safe? [American Empire: A Debate • By Christopher Layne and Bradley A. Thayer • Routledge, 2007 • Xii + 153 pages] Light-Induced Phenotypic Plasticity in Plants Laboratory Safety Principles William Jennings Bryan's Cross of Gold Speech
Phenotypic plasticity is the ability of an individual organism to alter its physiology or morphology in response to changes in environmental conditions. This ability is particularly important for the non-motile vascular plants that are unable to move when environmental conditions become unfavourable. This exercise compares morphological and anatomical characteristics of two plant species after 6 weeks of growth under two differing levels of irradiation. Measurements of leaf area, weight, thickne
This workshop will cover major principles and regulations pertinent to working in laboratories with hazardous materials. It will be divided into 45 minute segments dealing with: Radioactive Materials (Staiger); Toxic, Reactive, Carcinogenic, and Teratogenic Chemicals (Carlson); Infectious Agents (Laver); and Fire Safety Concepts and Physical Hazards (Arnston).
