Introduction

There are many environmental reasons why coal is a rather undesirable source of energy. Burning it introduces large amounts of gases into the atmosphere that harm the enviironment in a variety of ways, as well as other, sollid waste products. Coal extraction leads to spoil heaps and mines that scar the landscape, land subsidence that affects roads and buildings, and in some cases water pollution.

With apparently so little going for it, why do we rely so much on coal to meet our energy n

Oil Contaminants Hidden from View
In this video adapted from KTOO, watch as cleanup crews return to the bays and islands of Prince William Sound, Alaska. Before the 1989 Exxon Valdez tanker spill, Sleepy Bay, near the village of Chenega Bay, had been used for subsistence living by Alaska Native peoples. Despite cleanup efforts, oil residue remains stuck between and beneath rocks. A crew also visits a tidal lagoon whose sediments had been saturated by oil and where no remediation had been done. Even after 10 years, oil residue re

Phase separation in solid solution upon cooling: laser beam projection
As video "Phase separation in solid solution upon cooling: vial projection", but filmed looking into the laser light after it has passed through the vial (i.e. the video is of the laser beam as projected onto a screen): The vial contains a mixture of cyclohexane and aniline cooling from 35º. When the critical temperature is reached and the mixture goes from a single phase to two phases, the spot of light on the screen is disrupted as the phases separate. The spot 'flickers' and then becomes tot

Grammar Rock-Nouns
This video by School House Rock tells about nouns using a song and matching animation.  Using various scenarios, such a putting a dime in the record machine, the song highlights various nouns (dime, Chubby Checker, etc.).  It repeats that a noun is a person, place, or thing.  A noun is a special word that names a person, place, or thing. 
This is a fun teaching resource to introduce and/or reinforce nouns in the classroom and/or at home. (3:00)

The PDZ Domain as a Complex Adaptive System
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

The Good Side of Nightmares
The average person dreams several hundred times a week. Most are about relatives, friends, colleagues and loved ones. Most of the time, nothing special happens – and we tend to forget most dreams. However, once in a while people wake up screaming or sweating from dreams so frightening that they can’t be forgotten. While no one likes such nightmares, reporter Wojciech (Voytek) Mikoluszko reports on why it they aren’t necessarily a bad thing. The songs are performed by Irena Mikoluszko.
