Visualizing How A Population Grows To 7 Billion 7 Billion: How Did We Get So Big So Fast? Watch as global population explodes from 300 million to 7 billion. Sometime Monday, the world will have more humans than ever: 7 billion, according to the U.N. The U.N. estimates that the world's population will pass the 7 billion mark on Monday. Much of that growth has happened in Asia — in India and China. Due in part to that region's extreme poverty, infant mortality rates are high and access to family planning is low. As NPR's Adam Cole reports, it was just over two centuries ago that the global population was 1 billion — in 1804. As higher standards of living and better health care are reaching more parts of the world, the rates of fertility — and population growth — have started to slow down, though the population will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. U.N. forecasts suggest the world population could hit a peak of 10.1 billion by 2100 before beginning to decline.
Pulse of the Planet : Sounds of science, nature and culture NSTA Freebies for Science Teachers Graphite: Digital Resources Site Added: Dec 6, 2013 Graphite is a free online portal to help preK-12 educators find, use, and share the best digital apps, games, and websites for their students. Created by Common Sense Media with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the service contains objective ratings of apps and other digital learning resources from professional reviewers, along with reviews from dozens of “Graphite Educators,” teachers who are hand-picked by Common Sense Media. When you click on a review, it tells you the price, the grade levels the app is most appropriate for, setup time, platforms (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, or Nook HD), and subject areas—with a link to specific standards the app meets.
Sea Shepherd Did to a Swimming Pool What Humans Do to the Oceans Plastic pollution is recognized as a massive, global environmental issue, responsible for the deaths of over a million marine animals each year. It is a danger to all marine life including birds, sharks, turtles and marine mammals, causing injury and death through drowning, entanglement, or starvation following ingestion. It is also a danger to human life. On Earth Day on April 22, 2016, Sea Shepherd Global teamed-up with Shanghai-based creative agency, Fred & Farid, to shine a spotlight on the massive issue of plastic pollution in our oceans. Fred & Farid and Sea Shepherd have produced a short film that captures the reactions of swimmers at a public pool that has been filled with plastic pollution. “Faced with the option of swimming in a pool full of plastic pollution, most people would choose not to enter the water. “We hope that this video inspires discussion and public debate about the global problem of plastic pollution.
Circulatory System Circulatory System for Kids The human circulatory system consists of vessels, muscles and organs that help and control the flow of the blood and lymph around the body. It is collectively composed of the cardiovascular system and the lymphatic system with the heart, arteries, capillaries, veins and the blood being the main parts. The circulatory system moves nutrients, gases, and wastes to and from cells to maintain homeostasis. It helps fight diseases, maintains body temperature and pH.

Videos, Webcasts, Podcasts & Slideshows | Exploratorium TV Science-class.net - Science Resources for the Middle Grades Video for the English classroom For the language teacher, YouTube may be nothing less than one of the best sources of material the classroom has ever seen. In this article, I would like to share 12 clips that I have used in my own classroom. I hope that each clip will be representative of a type of video that may be of particular interest to language teachers. Note: In this article, we will be examining a number of clips that are hosted on the video-sharing site YouTube. 1. Some poems are best appreciated when they are heard rather than read. For language teachers, a visual element increases the possibilities for using any text in the classroom. 2. This is an example of ‘kinetic typography’ – the technical name for a moving text. Note how the text bombards the eyes in a range of orientations, sizes, font- types, colour and movement. Kinetic typography requires ‘space-time reading’ on the part of the viewer. 3. 4. With a new advertising medium comes a whole new range of issues for the educator to confront. Is it real?
HRP Education and Outreach While NASA’s Human Research Program studies the functions of the human body in space, our research can also inform and inspire the next generation of space flight researchers and engineers. Sharing what we have learned with the public is an important part of HRP’s mission, and we are dedicated to making the knowledge our scientists and engineers have accumulated as accessible and easy to understand as possible. Whether you are a student completing an assignment for school, an educator who wants to bring real-world examples into the classroom, or just an insatiably curious science buff, you are sure to find what you are looking for here. Teacher resources available through the NSRC It will soon be time for the Smithsonian Science Education Academies for Teachers (SSEATs) this summer! In collaboration with other museums and units of the Smithsonian, the SSEC works to create and deliver week-long professional development academies for teachers of science. The weeklong academies were developed to bridge the gap between formal and informal science education by combining training in science content and pedagogy with behind the scenes experiences at a wide variety of Smithsonian units, Smithsonian Affiliate partners, and world-class science research facilities throughout the Washington DC area. This years academies include the Biodiversity Academy; Energy: Past, Present, and Future; and Earth's History and Global Change Academy. Can't wait until the 2014 SSEATs?
Forget John Lewis, this is the saddest Christmas ad you'll ever see | Business Handkerchiefs at the ready: the German supermarket chain Edeka has aired a Christmas ad that could top John Lewis’s “Man on the Moon” as this season’s biggest tear-jerker. In the ad, which has been viewed on YouTube almost 10m times, a lonely old man comes up with drastic measures to bring his family together: he fakes his own death. It starts with the man, played by British actor Arthur Nightingale, receiving a voicemail from his daughter telling him that, once again, the family won’t make it home for Christmas. In the next scene, his children, all busy in daily life, get the news that their father has died. They all meet at their father’s house, grieving and dressed in black, but to their astonishment find the table set for dinner and their father, obviously alive, emerging from the kitchen. The loneliness of the elderly at Christmas was raised by John Lewis in its Man on the Moon ad, which has been viewed almost 20m times.
