Poli[Papers] International Board of Metal Toxicology Top of Page Download MS-Word Document For This Article The small study we launched in India is changing the face of pollution and lack of accountability in that country. From: Carin S. Dear Grace Thanks for your faithful work for IBCMT and remembering to alert us when there are articles worthy of dissemination. I have been progressively amazed how the small study we launched in India is changing the face of pollution and lack of accountability in that country. Below are a number of links - the first confirms that the central government has now officially started to seal hand pumps in Punjab and the article reported on in the link records the landmark closure of ground water pumps in the town of Faridkot, where this all started with the 400 odd disabled children 3 years ago! Then I also wish to bring to the attention of members a very meaningful initiative in India, which targets toxicity and we need to work towards seeing such initiatives replicated in all countries worldwide.

Digital Games Transforming K-12 Assessment and Learning Many teachers are searching for new ways to engage their digital-native students. They are looking for, write researchers at Florida State, “alternative ways of teaching – ways that increase student engagement and yield a rich, authentic picture of the learner(s).” These researchers say more educators should take a look at the latest in digital games. GlassLab, a new nonprofit educational game design initiative, has just released its first game— SimCityEdu—based on the popular Simcity brand and called SimCityEDU: Pollution Challenge! The Games, Learning, and Assessment Lab, or GlassLab is a unique partnership between the nonprofit Institute of Play (known for their Quest to Learn schools), the game-design firm Electronic Arts, and others. Last year, the Institute of Play received $10.3 million in grants from the MacArthur Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to start the lab, which is dedicated to exploring the potential of digital games in the classroom.

Revue des sciences 09/11 Un quasar lointain éclaire les débuts de l'univers Revues : Pour la Science - La Recherche - Sciences et AvenirBrèves : Physique - Climat - Biologie - Santé - Technologie La loi de l'information veut qu'on ne se répète pas mais ce n'est pas parce qu'on arrête d'en parler que le Japon est sortie d'affaire, la caractéristique du nucléaire étant sa durée déraisonnable. C'est donc sans doute pour longtemps qu'il y aura encore des pluies radioactives sur le Japon. Le mois d'août est normalement un mois creux pour l'information mais il y a quand même encore bien trop de nouvelles scientifiques pour un seul homme, pas de pause de ce côté. La crise qui traîne en durée elle aussi manifeste à quel point le monde est désormais unifié même s'il ne le sait pas assez et que chacun voudrait se replier sur soi, ses intérêts, ses préjugés, son histoire. Le N°39, c’est le piratage informatique des automobiles. Pour la Science no 407, Vivre dans un monde quantique - Vivre dans un monde quantique, p22

ICI Journals Master List (Index Copernicus International) The ICI World of Journals scientific journals’ search engine responds to the need of the world of science for gathering huge amounts of information concerning scientific journals in one place. The advanced search engine allows to find periodicals with a given score by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education from a given list (A, B and C) or with a particular Index Copernicus Value index (journals indexed in the ICI Journals Master List) in a selected scientific field. Putting together the information concerning the ICV evaluation and the one by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education allows to choose periodicals adapted to one’s needs. For journals whose editorial offices filled in information on bibliography, abstracts and published full articles, it is even possible to refer to individual articles. The website is a new and original solution by Index Copernicus International and it will be continuously developed and expanded.
