Acrobatic birds aren’t as energetic as they look 18 December 2013 Golden-collared manakins use just 5% of their daily energy expenditure wooing potential mates with energetic courtship displays.

A major function of the kidney is conservation of water by increasing the solute concentration in the urine. This is accomplished by the action of about a million nephrons working together with their attached collecting ducts. Although the process is much more complex than pictured here, it helps to understand the underlying concept if we break the process down into its three essential steps. It is important to realize that in reality, all three steps are going on at the same time. To the right of the animation is a complete set of controls, so that you can focus on any part of the process that you want. Click on the "Run" button to begin.

Home Home This site contains a collection of computer based artifacts that simulate aspects of disability. It is intended that the simulations will be used for training and awareness raising activities with staff and for teaching students in areas where an understanding of disability is required. No simulation can give the true feelings of what it is like to have a disability. It is hoped the simulations will provide 'food' for thought and promote enlightened discussion, which will lead to a better understanding. They have been designed from anecdotal comments made by people with a disability and staff involved in teaching and supporting students with disabilities. Some of the simulations contain audio files, which will require the use of speakers or headphones.

Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/. The categories are: Physics Flash Animations
