Changing Oceans

The article below is on changing oceans.   Scientists are struggling to find the trigger for a disease that appears to be ravaging starfish in record numbers, causing the sea creatures to lose their limbs and turn to slime in a matter of days. SAN FRANCISCO - Scientists are struggling to find the trigger for a disease that appears to be ravaging starfish in record numbers along the U.S. West Coast, causing the sea creatures to lose their limbs and turn to slime in a matter of days. Marine biologists and ecologists will launch an extensive survey this week along the coasts of California, Washington state and Oregon to determine the reach and source of the deadly syndrome, known as "star wasting disease." "It's pretty spooky because we don't have any obvious culprit for the root cause even though we know it's likely caused by a pathogen," said Pete Raimondi, chair of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California... read more

Future Challenge - STEAM, STEM, METS, TEAMS

The future or past of education for a truly educated and well-rounded society is when each person has the basics of Liberal Arts, Art, Music, Health, Science, and Mathematics all being taught on a consistent basis by passionate individuals.  We have abbreviations such as STEAM that stands for Science, Technology, English, Arts, and Mathematics, but without passion most of important teaching is lost.  Washington today has simply lost its' passion for leadership.   I am looking for entrepreneurs, teachers, tutors, and students who have Passion for learning.   Sincerely, Dr. Bob  

How should students prepare to go back to school if they only have a few minutes to spare each day?

First, I would begin suggest developing a plan that is logical, clearly defined, and practical.  A majority of students have significant stress issues entirely due to poor or incomplete planning of their time.    The following is a real EXAMPLE of STUDENT A who commuted to two campuses every other day.  The student took three classes, but had decided on a five day class schedule at two different campuses that had significant traffic issues.  Her class schedule caused her to be at a school campus for nearly 12 hours each day.  When I met the student she had just been involved in a minor traffic accident the prior day and therefore was emotionally stressed.    I suggest using a simple 24 hour spreadsheet that includes time for sleeping and simply relaxing.  I was able to maximize her grades that semester and as an added service advised her on a more practical and convenient schedule with proper time allotments... read more

Honors Physics Problem and Advanced Chemistry Problem

A water molecule contains two atoms of Hydrogen (H) and one atom of Oxygen (O). (H2O) How many different water molecules (isotopically different) can be formed using the natural abundances for the isotopes of Hydrogen (H, D, T), and Oxygen (15O, 16O, 17O, 18O)? Calculate the statistical concentrations for each isotopically unique molecule? Current status of question: Zero correct answers. (one partially correct answer).

Chemistry and Life

The fundamental molecule of life is water (H2O, dihydrogen monoxide). Explain why? This subject matter in the above can be utilized as a question for examinations such as the SAT, ACT, SAT II, A.P. CHEMISTRY, A.P. BIOLOGY, A.P. PHYSICS, MCAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, Engineering and Department of Defense qualifying exams. Please post your viewpoints about water as a central molecule to life.
