    When a whale dies, the story has just begun. Directed by Sharon Shattuck and Flora Lichtman [www.sweetfernproductions.com] Director of Photography: Artem Agafonov Music by Rachel's [www.rachelsband.com] A video compliment to Radiolab's 'Loops' episode, in collaboration with producer Lynn Levy [www.radiolab.org] [We featured the same species in the video that Radiolab features in the episode, so we're missing some, but you'll get the general idea. Thanks for watching. Please pass it along!]

        8,493 Plays / / 0 Comments

        This is the second installment of the Types of Chemical Reactions and Solution Stoichiometry Chapter. The lecture notes can be downloaded from apchemistrynmsi.wikispaces.com. This recording expands upon the types of chemical reactions you were introduced to in your first chemistry course. Additionally, net ionic reactions are introduced as well as precipitation reactions with more practice with reaction stoichiometry and limiting reactants. Finally acid-base reactions and titrations are introduced as well. So, get comfy and let's get started on that pathway to a FIVE on the AP Exam! (There's a slight delay at the beginning of this screencast. Apologies!)

            During the run of the CSI exhibit at the Science Museum of Minnesota ( smm.org/csi ), the Science Buzz team decided to dig deeper into the science behind forensic entomology...or how bugs are used to help solve crimes. So what does this have to do with a decaying pig? Pigs are a lot like people in some ways. With similar organs, muscles and bones, all beneath mostly hairless skin, pigs make reasonable substitutes for human bodies. They have been used as military and medical test subjects for generations, and now they are playing an important part in the scientific study of what happens to us after we die. Knowing when a pig died, scientists will gather data on the stages of its decay. Criminal investigators can then use this information to reveal a time and place of death when they find a human body in similar condition. Our pig, which you see here, came from a local farmer and died a natural death. We let it rot behind the museum for about two months and captured several images every minute to create this time-lapse video of its decay. What observations can you make about the pig's decay? You can learn more about this pig (we blogged about it every day) and the science of forensic entomology over at Science Buzz ( smm.org/buzz/topics/forensic-entomology ).

            • Bodies Of Change - A Beautiful Decay

              This video is part of the project titled "Continuous Bodies". CONTINUOUS BODIES Physical decay and physical death are natural processes, without which there could be no new life. On the contrary, traditional existentialism focuses on how people make sense of life in the shadow of death. In order to try and change this attitude this project places its focus towards a better understanding of the realm of fungi and at their fundamental importance in the environment with regard to decomposition and transformation of both organic and inorganic substrates and the resultant cycling of elements. How could we make use of fungi’s activity and knowledge as a guidance for better understanding the cyclicity of every existing thing? Throughout the process the designer comes to act as an interdisciplinary translator, facilitating communication between different fields of action, particularly between biologic science and design. The direct collaboration with mycologists becomes the base to explore the potential of recent scientific discoveries related to fungi’s abilities, and open up to a general audience the content of subjects otherwise out of reach. This process lead to the creation of two different projects - one organic, one inorganic - through which fungal organisms are implemented, envisioninng alternative possibilities, while questioning different attitudes related to modern human culture and “development”. Within this context the aim of this project is to try to inspire and stimulate a reflection leading to a re-qualification of the general perception towards the fungal kingdom and to the acceptance of the necessity of a true re-connection with the natural world, for a reciprocal symbiotic exchange of benefits. BODIES OF CHANGE; the dynamic lifecycle of fungi as a remedy for denial If we are no longer dressing for life, what are we dressing for? In this part the attention is mainly placed on the human body and on the possibility of employing fungi in performing the role of main “disassemblers” within a new burial practice. The aim is to explore and demistify denial and anxiety, related to the acceptance of the loss of a loved somebody, by transporting the process of decomposition of human remains to a more natural level, through an ecological connection with our changing environment. This film shows a personal vision of the way in which the process would develop, both ideally and poetically.
