That Incredible Little Arctic Tern
We went to Antarctica to see the penguins, and we certainly did. But we saw so much more wildlife: orcas and elephant seals and leopard seals and many different seabirds. My favorite is the arctic tern, a little bird that migrates farther every year than any other in the world... from the Antarctic to the Arctic, and back - 20,000 miles every year. (03:00)

Introduction

The Open University course S250 Science in context looks at a range of science-based topics of current or recent importance to public debates about science. It does this by examining the scientific facts and concepts that underpin such areas as genetic modification, medicinal plants and climate change, and in doing so aims to forefront a number of themes that we feel are of value in gaining greater insight into these types of controversies. At the points in the text where one or more o

When Ringling Bros. Retires Its Elephants, This is Where They Live
Amid scrutiny for the handling of their performing elephants, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus announced in March of this year that they will be removing elephants from their shows by 2018. The retired elephants will be brought to the Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation in Polk City, Florida. To help ensure the conservation of the Asian elephant, the animals will continue to be bred and studied at the center, with assisted reproduction and research into the diseases that

3.3 Specialisation within language areas: aphasia

Aphasia is caused by localised brain damage, for example due to a stroke or an automobile accident. General intellectual functioning is not necessarily impaired, as the person can still perform non-linguistic tasks. Nor is the understanding and production of language necessarily completely abolished. Instead, there are highly specific patterns of impairment in the way language is processed.

Aphasia is divided into two main types, fluent and non-fluent. For reasons which will become appa

2.1 Differences between accuracy and precision

Accuracy is a measure of how close a result is to the true value. Precision is a measure of how repeatable the result is. For instance, a group of three friends tried the shooting gallery at a fair and their targets are shown in Figure 6. The first person was an expert marksman, but they were using a rifle with s

4.3 Hairpin formation and micro-RNAs

A class of small RNA molecules called micro-RNAs (miRNAs) has been identified in recent years. The roles of these small RNAs are only just beginning to be understood, but many are expressed only at specific developmental stages. Indeed, the first observations of miRNAs were made in C. elegans because of their mutant developmental phenotypes. The genes that encode these miRNAs are called mir genes (pronounced ‘meer’) and have now been identified within the genomes of v

2.1.1 What do we mean by 'infect'?

A virus will attach itself in various ways to a file that already exists on a 'host' computer, and when that file is run, the virus activates as well. A computer virus works in a similar way to a biological virus.

Biological virus: an infectious agent of small size and simple composition that can multiply only in living cells of animals, plants or bacteria.

Computer virus: an infectious program of small size that
