Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures
https://www.astrosociety.org/education/silicon-valley-astronomy-lectures

In 1999, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the SETI Institute, NASA's Ames Research Center, and the Foothill College Astronomy Program teamed up to create the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures. Each lecture, presented at Foothill College in the Silicon Valley, is approximately 90 minutes in length and features various noted astronomers as they make astronomical phenomena accessible to the general public. For example, in November 2015, Harvard University's Richard Kirshner explained the recent astronomical discovery of cosmic acceleration - growing evidence that the universe is expanding at an increasingly rapid speed. With this resource, users may opt to either download these lectures as podcasts or listen to them online. Alternatively, the lectures in this series are also available on the SVAstronomyLectures YouTube channel and include slides that provide helpful visuals. That said, these lectures do not center on visuals, and thus can be understood just as enjoyably in podcast form. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.

Snitch.Name - Name Search
http://snitch.name/

This application was originally a tool they developed because they were tired of having to search in various places to find information about someone they met. It hasn't been designed to be fancy, but solves a real world problem until the people that build social services decide on some profile searching APIs. Until that time comes snitch.name is the best tool for the job. Search for information about your friends, mates, new collegues, etc. See how your name ranks on the social web. Use it as a central gateway for the social services you use. This will be added to Finding People Subject Tracer™.

SciStarter
https://scistarter.com

Citizen science is the idea that anyone, any citizen, can volunteer their time for the good of scientific research and discovery without having to be formally trained. SciStarter is the place to find and participate in citizen science projects, whether that be an extension of one of your current hobbies, like collecting data while bird watching (The Great Backyard Bird Count), or a fun educational activity to do with a child, like collecting bugs (Urban Buzz). As a repository for citizen science projects, the SciStarter Project Finder lets users search for projects and opportunities by type of activity, such as something to do exclusively online, or by topic, such as animals, geography, or health and medicine. There are also ways to limit your search by location, by free or low cost projects, or by projects suitable for students. Each entry includes general information about the project and a link to more information about how to participate. If you're looking to contribute a project to the database, the For Scientists section of the website offers an easy way to add suggestions, while the blog discusses outcomes of current citizen science fueled projects.

Notable resources include the Earth & Environment Research Overview, a site that explains the important work that
scientists are doing on the feedback loop between how humans impact the environment and how the environment, in turn, affects human communities. The material here ranges from K-12 to higher education. For instance, while college instructors may be interested in the Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College, an organization that works to improve undergraduate science education through projects that focus on faculty support, elementary school teachers may prefer Geography4Kids, which helps younger children explore the earth through engaging activities.

Media, Technology and Culture Open Access Audio Lectures
http://culturedigitally.org/

Last fall Josh Braun began teaching the “Media, Technology & Culture” undergraduate course at UMass Amherst. He decided to run a “flipped classroom,” wherein students would listen to many (though not all) of the lectures outside of class and spend their time in person discussing the material. In addition to opening up lots of class time for more in-depth and personable discussions, the main attraction of this format has been that it’s allowed him to introduce lots of voices into the course that aren’t just his own. As he put together the lectures—all of which are formatted as podcasts—he took the opportunity to invite scholars in each of their subject areas to read from their work or answer interview questions.

Study Guide for the Systems of the Body
https://www.acls.net/study-guide-body-systems.htm

Have you ever wondered how you can eat the things that you eat or how you can breathe or move your arms? If you think about it, it's pretty amazing that the human body can do all of the things that it does. Your body is made up of what are called systems. These systems are collections of organs and body parts that work together for a common goal. For example, your bones are all a part of the skeletal system. They work together to give your body shape and so that you can move. They also work together to protect your important organs, like your heart. The other systems that you have in your body are the circulatory, respiratory, muscular, digestive, and nervous systems. Each of these systems are very important, and everyone has them. It's important for kids to understand what the systems of the body are so that they can understand how important it is to keep the body healthy.

Atlas of Emotions
http://atlasofemotions.com

In June 2014, world renowned emotions expert Paul Ekman sent a survey out to 248 active emotion researchers around the world. In their responses, 88 percent of the respondents agreed that there are Universal Emotions, that is, emotions that all humans feel, no matter where they live or how they are raised. There was also a broad consensus on which emotions are universal, including anger, fear, disgust, sadness, and enjoyment. To navigate this engaging Atlas of Emotions, readers may select any of the five emotions to begin. From there, readers will find more information, including categories such as Triggers, Actions, and Moods. For instance, selecting Triggers under the Anger emotion leads to a graphic depicting the typical triggers that lead to an angry response, such as encountering offensive beliefs, being wrongfully accused, and rejection by a loved one. The site is exceptional for its interactive graphics and a layout that breaks down complex topics into easily understandable information. Anyone who wants to better understand human emotions will find much to appreciate here. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.
