Rating
0.0 stars

While many people have heard of Bitcoin, far fewer understand it. In short, Bitcoin is a digital currency that allows transactions independent of the banking system. Lately, many people are buying Bitcoin purely as a financial investment, hoping it will appreciate. So which is it—currency or financial asset? Read more about it in the March 2018 issue of Page One Economics.

Boom Construction
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Student teams design their own booms (bridges) and engage in a friendly competition with other teams to test their designs. Each team strives to design a boom that is light, can hold a certain amount of weight, and is affordable to build. Teams are also assessed on how close their design estimations are to the final weight and cost of their boom "construction." This activity teaches students how to simplify the math behind the risk and estimation process that takes place at every engineering firm prior to the bidding phase when an engineering firm calculates how much money it will take to build the project and then "bids" against other competitors.

Circumcision impacts the penile microbiome and immune milieu: Implications for HIV susceptibility
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Penile circumcision dramatically reduces the risk of contracting HIV-1. This protection likely has multiple physical and biological mechanisms, and understanding these mechanisms could lead to non-surgical interventions to reduce HIV-1 transmission. Thus, researchers examined the microbiota and immune milieu before and after elective circumcision in two key areas. The coronal sulcus (CS), which is exposed to the air by foreskin removal and the urethra, which is thought to be the primary site of penile HIV-1 infection in circumcised men. The CS showed a dramatic decrease in pro-inflammatory anaerobic bacteria after circumcision, as well as significantly reduced inflammatory cytokines and chemokines. Circumcision also altered the urethral microbiota. However — in contrast to the CS — there were few changes to the urethral immune profile..."

Clifford and the Big Storm
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

Students are read a series of two options and are asked to decide which options are more dangerous. They then learn about risk and how to prevent or reduce risk by taking precautions. Next they listen to a story about risk, where Clifford, the big red dog, helps reduce the risk of danger by taking precautions. After the story, the students complete a story sequencing activity based on Clifford’s actions. Finally, they recognize that Clifford does not exist in the real world and talk about people in their families and communities that help protect them from risk.

Deltas in danger: patterns of change across the globe

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"River deltas across the globe are sinking – a problem for the half-billion people currently living on them. These landforms, created as sediment washes downstream towards a river’s mouth, are highly susceptible to environmental change. Human activity such as population growth and industrialization are dramatically accelerating this sinking, leading to increased flood risk and the loss of coastal wetlands. To keep deltas intact, a better understanding of the stresses they face is key. Many research groups have studied threats to deltas at the single-delta level; the scope and variety of these threats at the global level, however, isn’t clear. But researchers in New York have developed a method to classify the effects of human activity on deltas worldwide. The team used cluster analysis -- a way of sorting different variables into groups based on their similarity -- to spot patterns in datasets collected at 48 deltas..."

Estimating disease risk using the microbiome: the Microbial Risk Score

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Our microbiome has profound impacts on our health, and technological advances have allowed for ever-growing pools of data from microbiome-wide studies. This means that our microbiome could be used to estimate disease risk, but the nature of the data makes the endeavor difficult. Similar issues with using genetics to predict disease risk led to the development of the polygenic risk score. Motivated by the success of that framework, a team of researchers recently developed the microbial risk score (MRS). MRS summarizes the complex microbial profile by first identifying a sub- community consisting of disease-associated microbial taxa and then integrating those microbial taxa into a continuous score based on the alpha diversity of the identified sub-community. MRS can be easily integrated with the other risk scores built upon metatranscriptomics, host genetics, or host transcriptomics, making it useful for 'multi-omics' approaches as well..."
