American Environmental Photographs 1891-1936
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

The collection consists of 4,500 photographs documenting natural environments, ecologies, and plant communities in the United States at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth century. Produced between 1891 and 1936, these photographs provide an overview of important representative natural landscapes across the nation. They demonstrate the character of a wide range of American topography, its forestation, aridity, shifting coastal dune complexes, and watercourses. Among the natural features these images document are ecological settings such as dunes, bogs, forests, and deserts; individual plants from the Ponderosa pine and birch to grasses and mosses; landscape features like the Grand Canyon, Lake Superior, and the Sierra Nevada; and the consequences of natural and human changes to the environment ranging from erosion and floods to irrigation and lumbering.

Robert Oppenheimer - Gen. Leslie Groves, Hans Bethe, George F. Kerman, I. I. Rabi, Edward Teller,? and ?Decision and Opinions of the United States Atomic Energy Commission in the Matter of Dr. J.

A Field Season Gets Underway Set To Weddell Seal Song
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Weddell seals have a large repertoire of very strange vocalizations–everything from chugs, chirps, trills, and whistles to what sounds like something from outer space. Weddells make these sounds both underwater and on top of the sea ice. Our soundtrack composer Steve Perez used hydrophone recordings the project obtained under NMFS Permit 1032-1917 to interweave with guitar and midi to create an other-worldly composition consisting of some of those Weddell seal vocalizations recorded by the Weddell Population Ecology project. Video field footage obtained by project members Eric Boyd and Terrill Paterson under NMFS Permit 17236. Video editing and production by Mary Lynn Price. Learn more at WeddellSealScience.com!

Historic Pittsburgh, an extensive digital resource created at the University of Pittsburgh, offers both an entry point and substantive classroom resources for teachers of American History at various grade and university levels. This Web site enables access to historic material held by the University of Pittsburgh's University Library System, the Library & Archives at the Heinz History Center, Carnegie Museum of Art, Chatham College Archives, Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, and Point Park University Archives. The project represents a model of cooperation between libraries, museums and institutions of higher learning in providing centralized access to selections of their respective historic materials.The books allows teachers to focus on historical currents, social movements and individual historical personalities, both famous and less well-known. Thousands of photographs offer students at all levels opportunities for observation, comparison and inference. The decennial census contains a wealth of information about the occupational, racial, gender, family, and residential structure of a key industrializing region, from pre-Civil War years to the Gilded Age. The chronology captures significant events that took place in Pittsburgh throughout three centuries.

This photograph collection shows a wood-frame house located 1,100 meters from ground zero, exposed to a nuclear blast at the Nevada Test Site. The test was Upshot-Knothole Annie, a 16 Kt tower shot, on March 17, 1953. Exposure to thermal radiation was 25 cal/cm2, about one-quarter of that experienced at ground zero in Hiroshima. The blast over pressure was 5 psi, and the blast wave created surface winds of 160 mph.

As the now-familiar mushroom cloud rose into the sky, Oppenheimer quoted from Hindu scripture, the ?Bhagavad-gita,? ?Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.? The world had entered the nuclear age. The ?Gadget? had a yield equivalent to 19 kilotons of TNT. ?Fat Man,? the bomb dropped on Nagasaki, was identical in design to the ?Gadget.?

Triangles calculator - TrianCal

http://TrianCal.esy.es - Open in Google Chrome. (Triangles online calculator developed by Jesus S.)
YouTube: https://youtu.be/V2IV7lY52mA

I propose this free online calculator triangles without advertising to help students with geometry, does not perform the duties, because their calculations formulas are not displayed. It is designed in a didactic way to check and view the realized duties.

TrianCal is online calculator triangles that works with any combination of values including sides, heights, angles, the area or perimeter of any triangle, calculating it with the minimum possible value (typically three).

Other functions:
- Draw the triangle (s) with GeoGebra.
- Set the range of values in each element.
- The type of angle.
- The type of triangle by its angles and sides.
- Selection of language (English or Spanish).
- Select the angle type [degrees (°), radians, degrees, minutes and seconds (° ' ") or degrees and minutes (° ')].
- Number of decimal places shown in the results (0-15).
- You can use the arrow keys and the Tab key to navigate through the settings.
- Drop-down menu to select the values comfortably.
- Create a link (URL) to the current triangle.
- An icon mail to communicate with the author.

NOTE: You must use the Google Chrome browser to display correctly TrianCal.

Examples of possible combinations:
- The area, perimeter and other data (side, height or angle), if the outside equilateral triangle would not need the third data.
- 2 angles and other data (if the value of the other data is not put aside the value of "a" at the time of drawing the triangle is 10).
- One side, one high and one angle.
- 3 heights.
- 3 sides.
- 2 heights and perimeter.
- Any other combination of values.

Video: Are Some Weddell Seal Pups Couch Potatoes?

Ecologists are investigating whether Weddell seal pups that spend more time in the water learning to swim with their moms have a higher chance of surviving to return and have pups of their own. Weddell seals live all their lives in Antarctica, and are the southernmost mammal in the world. Weddell moms spend a lot of time with their pups coaxing them into the cold Antarctic water and helping them learn to swim. Footage includes interviews with Montana State University ecology professors Bob Garrott and Jay Rotella. Video production by Mary Lynn Price. Additional footage by Jessica Farrer, Jesse DeVoe, Henry Kaiser, Rob Robbins, and Steve Rupp. More information at http://WeddellSealScience.com.
