12.517 Dynamics of Complex Systems: Biological and Environmental Coevolution Preceding the Cambrian Explosion (MIT) 12.517 Dynamics of Complex Systems: Biological and Environmental Coevolution Preceding the Cambrian Explosion (MIT)

Description

This seminar will focus on dynamical change in biogeochemical cycles accompanying early animal evolution -- beginning with the time of the earliest known microscopic animal fossils (~600 million years ago) and culminating (~100 million years later) with the rapid diversification of marine animals known as the "Cambrian explosion." Recent work indicates that this period of intense biological evolution was both a cause and an effect of changes in global biogeochemical cycles. We will seek to identify and quantify such coevolutionary changes. Lectures and discussions will attempt to unite the perspectives of quantitative theory, organic geochemistry, and evolutionary biology.

This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. To understand and treat any disease with a genetic basis or predisposition, scientists and clinicians need effective ways of manipulating the levels of genes and gene products. Conventional methods for the genetic modification of many experimental organisms are technically demanding and time consuming. Just over 5 years ago, a new mechanism of gene-silencing, termed RNA interference (RNAi), was discovered. In addition to being a fascinating biological process, RNAi provides a revolutionary technology that has a This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT.

Unloading animals at the Corporation Quay

Description

Unloading animals at the Corporation Quay, Sunderland, July 1949 (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/3176S). This set of images celebrates the 300th Anniversary of the establishment of the Port of Sunderland. The port authority was constituted in 1717 by Act of Parliament, which appointed the River Wear Commissioners to manage and improve the harbour and river. Since then the port has changed beyond recognition with the construction of piers, docks and quays and the dredging of the River Wear to make it wider and deeper. These developments were vital to the coal trade on which the region?s prosperity depended. The improvement of the river was also essential to the success of shipbuilding in Sunderland as well as allied industries such as marine engineering and ship repairing. These images are a reflection of Sunderland?s proud industrial history. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share these digital images within the spirit of The Commons.

2014 Uehiro Lecture (3): The Question of Legal Rights for Animals

Description

In these lectures I will raise some fundamental questions about the moral and legal standing of the other animals: the basis of our moral obligations to them, and whether it makes sense to think that animals might have legal rights. The instability in human attitudes about the moral standing of animals is reflected in our laws. Animal welfare laws offer animals some legal protections, but those protections do not take the form of animal rights. Partly as a consequence, these laws are often ineffective. Organizations with an interest in activities that are harmful to animals, such as factory farms or experimental laboratories, often manage to get their own activities exempt from the restrictions or the animals they deal with exempt from the protections. On the other hand, many people find Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

2014 Uehiro Lecture (2): The Moral Standing of Animals

Description

In these lectures I will raise some fundamental questions about the moral and legal standing of the other animals: the basis of our moral obligations to them, and whether it makes sense to think that animals might have legal rights. Human attitudes towards the other animals exhibit a curious instability. Nearly everyone thinks we have some obligations with respect to the other animals ? that whenever possible, we should treat them ?humanely.? Yet human beings have traditionally regarded nearly any reason we might have for overriding this obligation, short of malicious enjoyment of their suffering, as a sufficient reason. We kill or hurt animals in order to eat them, in order to make useful or desirable products out of them, because we can learn from experimenting on them, because t Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

2014 Uehiro Lecture (1): Animals, Human Beings, and Persons

Description

In these lectures I will raise some fundamental questions about the moral and legal standing of the other animals: the basis of our moral obligations to them, and whether it makes sense to think that animals might have legal rights. Legitimate differences in the ways we treat animals, human beings, and other entities that have moral or legal rights ? legal persons ? must be based on the differences between them. Philosophers have traditionally cited a variety of factors ? rationality, sentience, having interests ? as morally significant. In this lecture I discuss what the morally relevant similarities and differences between these kinds of entities might be. Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

Description

Los procesos gastrointestinales constituyen uno de los hallazgos clínicos más frecuentes en la práctica veterinaria de pequeños animales. La técnica endoscópica ofrece en este campo una gran seguridad diagnóstica, gracias a la posibilidad de obtener biopsias en los diferentes tramos explorados. Los objetivos específicos de este curso de Endoscopia son formar a los alumnos en la utilización y manejo del endoscopio y la toma de biopsias de las diferentes porciones del aparato digestivo, con fines diagnósticos. Además, se pretende darle a conocer las patologías concretas de esta especialidad que puede encontrar en la práctica clínica profesional y ponerle en contacto con casos clínicos representativos, tomados de la práctica clínica, para estar en condiciones de enfrentarse a Los procesos gastrointestinales constituyen uno de los hallazgos clínicos más frecuentes en la práctica veterinaria de pequeños animales.

Collection Models

Description

1913, Models made by the blind children on visits to Sunderland Museum, in which they were allowed to touch the exhibits.The models were made 5 weeks later and made at Sunderland Council Blind School. ?To them, their fingers are eyes? From 1913, John Alfred Charlton Deas, a former curator at Sunderland Museum, organised several handling sessions for the blind, first offering an invitation to the children from the Sunderland Council Blind School, to handle a few of the collections at Sunderland Museum, which was ?eagerly accepted?.

21W.730-4 Writing on Contemporary Issues: Food for Thought: Writing and Reading about the Cultures of Food (MIT) 21W.730-4 Writing on Contemporary Issues: Food for Thought: Writing and Reading about the Cultures of Food (MIT)

Description

"What people do with food is an act that reveals how they construe the world." - Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook If you are what you eat, what are you? Food is at once the stuff of life and a potent symbol; it binds us to the earth, to our families, and to our cultures. In this class, we explore many of the fascinating issues that surround food as both material fact and personal and cultural symbol. We read essays by Toni Morrison, Michael Pollan, Wendell Berry, and others on such topics as family meals, eating as an "agricultural act" (Berry), slow food, and food's ability to awaken us to "our own powers of enjoyment" (M. F. K. Fisher). We will also read Pollan's most recent book, In Defense of Food, and discuss the issues it raises as well as "What people do with food is an act that reveals how they construe the world." - Marcella Hazan, The Classic Italian Cookbook If you are what you eat, what are you?
