Atomic Bomb and World War Two
In August of 1945, the United States dropped two atomic bombs over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, bringing World War II to an end. Forensic medical investigator Shiya Ribowsky explains why death was never far from those who survived the blasts. A very good video for ends justify means discussion or one about the number of atomic bombs in existence or even Iran's situation.

2.2.3 Cystic fibrosis

A different model for the genetic tests of the future is screening for cystic fibrosis (CF). This is a DNA-based test, which became possible after the gene involved in CF was identified in 1989. CF is a recessive disease, and it should be easy to test to see if prospective parents carry a mutated allele. A simple mouthwash yields enough cells for DNA extraction. If both partners are carriers, they can consider further counselling before conception, and/or pre-natal testing of any potentially

Optimization in the Balance between the Production Effort of E-learning Tutorials and their related
This paper provides evidence on the level of media richness that may be cost effective in the development of e-learning tutorials for teaching and learning computer visualization techniques. For such a purpose the author provides an analysis of low-cost / high-impact media rich products, the effort and cost required in their development and the measurement of related learning outcomes. Circa twenty years of R&D of multimedia and hypermedia applications for instruction have demonstrated the benef

There are several types of diabetes, including two that are common: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 2 is the most common sort of diabetes. Worldwide, about 90 per cent of people with diabetes have Type 2 and about 10 per cent have Type 1. The other sorts of diabetes account for very small numbers of people.

2.3.4 Lateralisation

It has long been suspected that unusual patterns of cerebral lateralisation (i.e. the ‘division of labour’ between left and right hemispheres of the brain) may have some connection with dyslexia. Early researchers noticed an apparent excess of left-handedness in children with specific reading difficulties (and their relatives). However, most dyslexic people are in fact right-handed, and most left-handed people are not dyslexic. Nonetheless, large-scale analyses of the research find

RMIT Journalism Symposium - Fact or Fiction - Does anybody care
In this symposium, working journalists and editors debate the changing nature of journalism and the challenges for media operators and teachers at a time of disruption – not just of the business models but also of the Western media culture that developed and dominated in the 20th century. Objective, independent journalism remains the goal – but is it still possible in a time of such change?
