The experiment—which tests the role of microgravity in the production of chlorophyll—is one of 21 student projects that will launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida this month.
The program centers on experiments that test how lack of gravity affects things like seed germination, cellular biology and food production.
In the past week alone, I've been asked if Facebook means we have to give up our privacy, be friends with people we don't want to be friends with, and whether or not it's okay to connect with teachers, students, bosses, and parents. I have a mantra I'd like to share whenever technology makes you anxious.
Repeat after me: "It's not about the tools." Ask most students if they are Facebook friends with their teachers and they will tell you, "it depends on the teacher." That alone should tell us that a blanket policy prohibiting teachers from interacting on social networks with students is the functional equivalent of burying your head in the sand. Instead of trying to regulate behaviors from the 'top'-and there's plenty of evidence that extrinsic motivation doesn't work all that well-why don't schools and businesses add digital citizen training on top of the other social and ethical issues they address, such as diversity training, sexual harassment training, and school safety.
Rochester, New York, students have some bragging rights when it comes to space exploration.
East High School students in the Rochester City School District recently earned the opportunity to send their microgravity experiment to the International Space Station.
In a June 2012 interview with a reporter from the TV show "Extra", Trump is asked what he thinks about "all these teachers having sex with their students." It's unclear which specific case Trump is referencing in the clip.
The program is run by the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education and the Arthur C. The 7-year-old program meshes the principles of STEM and requires writing a compelling proposal. Once a school is approved, students develop and write proposals for their microgravity experiments.
This will be a perfect time to ask GV NSA any questions about anything nursing related!

As social networks become a normal means of connection, it's time to step back and examine the underlying purposes that the social networking tools facilitate.
Facebook currently has everyone's attention but it's not because the relationships on it are unique relative to other types of social media. Facebook, much to Mark Zuckerberg's delight I'm sure, has become synonymous with social media, like Kleenex is for tissues.
