    (No violence or foul language appears in this video) So I previously stopped by one of Houstons water plants to see if they had any damage following the Hurricane Harvey flooding-Security threw a fit,of course. That was in Galena Park (video will post next week). I knew the City of Houston Water Works had an Educational Center on the north side of town so I figured a stop there might prove enlightening.

  • Sense of Hearing - How the Body Works | Science for Kids | Kids Education by Mocomi Kids

    http://mocomi.com/ presents: Five Senses - Sense of Hearing Hearing is the ability to detect sound. Humans and other mammals are able to do this with the help of an organ called ear. The word ear is used to refer to the outer ear, and a group of nerves and muscles hidden inside called the inner ear. The outer ear or pinna is the first step in hearing. It directs sound energy down the auditory canal towards the eardrum. Sound that passes through the eardrum is simplified into one amplitude that is detected by the inner ear and transmitted to the brain. The inner ear is a hollow cavity that is filled with a liquid and lined with hair-like structures that are sensitive to sound. When sound passes into the liquid of the inner ear, it applies pressure on the tiny hairs. This triggers a sign...

Now for some people, the light passes through the pupil, but the lens cannot bend the light properly. It could be because the lens is wrongly shaped or the muscles that control the lens are weak. When light does not fall directly on the retina you see a blurred image. When the image falls in front of the retina, the person suffers from shortsightedness and can't see distant objects clearly. When the image falls beyond the retina, the person suffers from longsightedness and can't see nearby objects clearly. Both these problems can be easily fixed with a pair of spectacles.

Additionally, Goetz led InnovaBio (through the support of a National Science Foundation grant), a student-driven, non-profit contract research company that provides high school and college students with opportunities to work as interns for a life science company. Since its creation, InnovaBio has been nationally recognized as an innovative way to establish partnerships between education and industry, while supporting economic development. Tamara is the lead on Utah's U.S. Department of Labor's Workforce Innovation in Regional Economic Development Initiative (WIRED), which promotes education and training for life sciences in Utah. She is also the Director for the Utah Life Science Economic Development Cluster for the Governor's Office of Economic Development.

She served on the Governor's State Advisory Council for science and technology and also on the Board of Directors for The Leonardo. She was recognized as "40 Under 40 Rising Stars" in 2004 and "30 Women to Watch" in 2007 by Utah Business magazine. She also received the Award of Merit by the National Association for Career and Technical Education for her work to support science and math secondary education programs. Tamara received the 2008 Women Technology Council's "Community Builder" award. She received her BS and MS degrees in Physiology at the University of Missouri-Columbia, her PhD in Biochemistry and Biophysics at Washington State University and completed her post-doctoral training at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Education Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish On July ninth, South Sudan becomes the world's one hundred ninety-third nation. In January, almost ninety-nine percent of voters chose independence from the north. South Sudan will also be one of the world's least developed nations. This follows years of war and neglect by the Sudanese government in Khartoum. South Sudan is about the size of France. Yet it has only fifty kilometers of good roads and almost no public electrical power or other basic systems. Illiteracy rates are high. There are estimates that more than eighty percent of the population cannot read or write.There are five universities. Three of them moved their operations to the north during the war. The southern government has brought most of the students back. Officials estimate that about twenty-five thousand students have registered at the five universities. Classes were supposed to start in April. But the Ministry for Higher Education in the south has now moved the opening date to the middle of May.The government pays for food and provides housing for students. But higher education minister Joseph Ukel says finding enough space was one reason for the delay.Another issue is money. The government in Khartoum will pay for the schools until July. Mr. Ukel says the southern government's proposed budget for this year does not include any money for the universities.Then there is the problem of teachers. Almost seventy-five percent of the lecturers are from the north. They are not likely to travel to the south to continue teaching for their schools.Mr. Ukel says his ministry has asked southern Sudanese teachers outside the country to return. William Deng heads a commission supervising the return of ninety thousand former fighters to civilian life. He says most of the soldiers who have come out of the southern army need education and training. He said: "The skill they only know is soldiering. Now, you must train them with life skills, such as carpentry, making bricks and also small agriculture, or micro-financing."Only four percent of good land in South Sudan is being farmed. Millions of people need food aid to survive. The head of Juba University, Aggrey Abate, says his school can play a big part in training agricultural specialists.For VOA Special English I'm Alex Villarreal.
