Thunderstorms - A Simple Introduction with Time-Lapse Photography
This video introduces two important and simple concepts that help us understand thunderstorms. We use two Tiwi Island "Hector" thunderstorms in different wind environments as examples. With the use of time-lapse photography we can see the effects of this wind shear on the storms. (13:07)

2.2 Chaperones help polypeptides to fold

We have seen how steric restrictions and energetic considerations specify preferred polypeptide conformations and ultimately determine a protein's three-dimensional structure. It is possible, of course, that there may be more than one energetically favourable conformation for a polypeptide. This is particularly true for large polypeptides. For a protein with a specific function in the cell, misfolding will affect its activity. Indeed, the misfolded protein may actually have some aberrant unde

1.8 Io

David A. Rothery Teach Yourself Planets, Chapter 9, pp. 107-39, Hodder Education, 2000, 2003.

Copyright © David Rothery

Of the welter of revelations provided by the Voyager tours of the outer Solar System, the discovery of active volcanoes on Io probably ranks top of the list. Prior to this, most people had assumed that bodies of Io's size, whether rocky like Io or icy like its companions, would be geologically dead like our own, similarly sized, Moon. This i

3.5 Summary

  • Social learning theory proposes that it is possible for children to learn by observing other people.

  • Bandura found that pre-school children would copy aggressive behaviour modelled by another person, and that this was most likely if the model was similar to them in some way and not seem to be punished.

  • Social learning research has informed the ongoing debate about television being either a positive or negative influence on young

2.2 Children's violence

There has been a great deal of work done by psychologists on violence and aggression in children, looking at whether this is part of a normal and natural developmental process or whether it is pathological. Cole and Cole define aggression as ‘an act in which someone intentionally hurts another’ (1996, p. 406). They then split this definition to look at instrumental aggression which is committed in order to obtain a specific goal, and hostile aggression which is aimed at hurting another pe

Cours de statique des poutres : Statique des poutres élastiques
Les poutres sont présentées dans ce cours comme des milieux élastiques unidimensionnels a priori courbes. Après l'introduction des efforts intérieurs à une poutre, on déduit les lois de comportement des poutres par la résolution d'un problème d'élasticité tridimensionnelle : le problème de Saint-Venant. Cette méthode a l'avantage de montrer clairement que la théorie classique des poutres est une conséquence directe de l'élasticité et non une théorie à part, comme on la présen

4.2 Crinoids

Figure 7 shows the fossilised remains of a type of echinoderm called a crinoid ('cry-noyed'). Although crinoids occur today, they were far more common in the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic Eras. Most crinoids feed by bending their umbrella-like arrangement of flexible appendages (called 'arms') downstream so as to catch a current, rather as in an umbrella being caught in the wind. Tube feet (multipurpose tentacles) on the arms gather food particles suspended in the water, which are then wafte
