Less well known are his important contributions to anaesthesia and to epidemiological methods, and his engagement in public debates of the time. The breadth and depth of Snow’s activities provide a model for population researchers concerned not only with sound method but also with bringing their results to public benefit. Indeed, though epidemiology is often described as the study of health-related aspects of populations, its methods are applicable to studies of virtually anything in populations, and disciplines which now acknowledge the methods and terminology of epidemiology range from education to crime science and economics.
MN student testing faces big cuts after lawmakers slash budget Listen Story audio Minnesota students will see big changes in the number of statewide exams they take next school year after the Legislature chopped Minnesota's testing budget in half during the special session. Lawmakers repealed several required high school tests and stopped paying for all juniors to take the ACT college entrance exam, something they had ordered in 2013. This was the first year for those payments. They're gone now, too. Susnpot Drawings Galileo's Sunspot Drawings In 1612 during the summer months, Galileo made a series of sunspot observations which were published in Istoria e Dimostrazioni Intorno Alle Macchie Solari e Loro Accidenti Rome (History and Demonstrations Concerning Sunspots and their Properties, published 1613). Because these observations were made at appoximately the same time of day, the motion of the spots across the Sun can easily be seen. To illustrate this, thirty-six of Galileo's sunspot drawings have been placed in sequence as "flip-book" type animation which can be played at two different speeds. The faster animination better demonstates to movement of the sunspots. The slower animation affords the opportunity for more careful study of Galileo's drawings.
Overstretched school counselors would get state relief under new plan Listen Story audio Rosemount High School counselor Chad Terry helps students plan for college, work through emotional crises and pass their classes. Nearly 500 students depend on him. Computer Science - Landscape Study - The Center for Elementary Mathematics and Science Education The survey yielded a rich, wide ranging set of findings. However, when considered together, those findings lead to three main conclusions: As a field, computer science education professional development needs to move toward more coherence. Student support gets boost in Minnesota's supplemental budget School districts will have an opportunity to hire more social workers, counselors and other student support staff with a $12.1 million grant program included in the Legislature's end-of-session spending plan.

Money for student counseling takes a back seat Listen Story audio Lots of young, enthusiastic people want to be school counselors in Minnesota. Test scores and graduation data show there's plenty of need for the kind of support counselors provide. Without the intervention of counselors and other support staff, students can get off track for graduation, end up dropping out and find themselves with few options for employment. "Kids can't perform as well academically if they've got some social and behavioral issues that aren't taken care of," said Lauren Salonek, a graduate student in Minnesota State University Mankato's counseling program.

Without support, Minnesota students left behind at graduation When Xavier Simmons walked into class in high school, he'd turn his desk backwards, put his head down and go to sleep. He failed four classes his freshman year. Nobody called him on it, he said — not his mother, not his teachers, not his counselors. He dropped out the next year. "I didn't think of it as a big deal," Simmons said.
