Every Cell in Your Body Has the Same DNA. Except It Doesn’t. - The New York Times | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
The genome obviously varies from person to person. But it can also vary from cell to cell, even within the same individual. The implications of “mosaicism” are enormous.

Live viruses may seem completely different from the message-carrying vesicles that cells release. But a vast population of particles intermediate between the two hints at their deep evolutionary connection.

Food in the West

Food in the West | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Via The Scout Project

 

 

"This culinary-themed timeline was created by students in a "Foundations of Western Civilization" class taught by Utah State University professor Julia Gossard. Here, visitors can learn about major culinary trends -- including trends related to food, drink, feasts, and agriculture -- from the Ancien regime through the present day. For instance, one stop on the timeline, Enlightenment Desserts, notes the growing popularity of chocolate in Enlightenment-era Europe. Another timeline entry, "Fear of the Tomato in Italy," reveals that during the late eighteenth century, some Europeans grew to fear tomatoes because, curiously, a number of individuals grew seriously (sometimes fatally) ill after eating the fruit. The true culprit was lead, which was often included in fine dishware of the day. As the entry explains, "tomatoes would draw out the lead that was in their dish and would eventually poison" wealthy diners who ate from plates containing lead. Other entries address the Irish Potato Famine, the advent of processed cheese, and the invention of the chocolate chip cookie."

Math, Science, and Music

Math, Science, and Music | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Via The Scout Report

 

"Math, Science, and Music is one of our favorite educational resources for two reasons. First - the project is truly interdisciplinary, offering resources that may appeal to educators from a wide variety of disciplines. Second - although this resource is designed for the classroom, it contains much that may appeal more broadly to anyone generally curious about music, sound, science, or math.

 

"Developed by the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, in collaboration with a number of educational experts from top universities around the U.S., Math, Science, and Music is a remarkable collection of educational resources designed to engage learners of all ages with math, science, music, and the areas where these three disciplines intersect. As of this writing, this collection contains ten teacher toolkits. In one toolkit, Music Cognition, visitors will find a series of video lectures about the links between music, psychology, and neuroscience. These lectures are led by jazz composer and Harvard Professor Vijay Iyer and neuroscientist Ed Large and could be incorporated into a number of high school and college classrooms. Another toolkit, Making Music Count, includes interactive lesson plans and classroom activities designed to help elementary and middle school students explore beats, ratios, and patterns in music. Additionally, Scratch Jazz is an interactive program that enables users to compose their own jazz tunes while learning coding skills. While these resources are aimed at educators, they will also appeal to any curious member of the general public. The highly interactive nature of these resources makes them ideal for youth centers, museums, libraries, and other out-of-school learning environments."
