After a cold December and January in the northern hemisphere, most of us are dying to know how much more frigid cold and snow-shovelling we have to look forward to. But then again, how often has the local news channel or the Farmer’s Almanac been dead wrong …

Goldenrod is a perennial wildflower found worldwide.  To most it is a weed but to many it is a beautiful wildflower and in some areas of Europe and recently in North America it is cultivated.  Ecologically, it provides food for many insects and foraging…
Goldenrod, an aster relative, is blamed for seasonal hay fever. An insect pollinated plant, beautiful goldenrod instead has many healing properties.

Those darn adrenal glands.  Stress and weight gain, it is those glands we have to blame and our caveman past! From an evolutionary standpoint, their secretions of adrenaline and cortisol were vital for survival in a hostile world.  When confronted by a…

To align lessons with Next Generation Science Standards, I've been working on activities for 9th graders involving cellular respiration and photosynthesis. It's been challenging to present the material in a way that those students can understand. They haven't taken chemistry and have no concept of redox reactions and electron acceptors.

I started with the question "Why do we need oxygen?" What followed was a mini-case study on the Chicago Tylenol murders, cyanide, and finally the electron transport chain. It is intended for 9th graders, so the model is really simplified. 
Part 1: Background. newspaper In September of 1982 ,Mary Kellerman gave her 12 year old daughter a painkiller when she awoke during the night complaining of a sore throat. At 7 am the next morning, her daughter was found collapsed on the bathroom floor, and later pronounced dead.
