Hello! This is a vanity page that is constantly being updated and maintained....There are rich resources on the Net as well as fun items that everyone should check out! Here are the URLs of some of the fun things....
This full-color camera at Netscape Communications actually takes photos of their fish.
Here is one site that is interesting. This camera takes a picture of the coffee-maker so people know whether or not to hike over for a cup?!?!?
Mercury Project, a team at University of Southern California, has a tele-operational robot arm over an excavation site. You can position the arm, deliver a burst of compressed air to loosen the area, and view the spot again with a real-time color image.
Børre Ludvigsen's house-on-the-net has a couple of remote-controlled pan & tilt cameras run "real time'' over CU-SeeMe. Currently they're by request only, but they'll be open for direct control fairly soon. Requests to Tom Heiberg or Børre.
Don't forget to check out Jeff Schwartz's Interactive Sites page and his own page.

I teach many University courses, Nursing Research (An introduction to Nursing Research for undergraduate nursing students), Community Health Nursing (Community Health Nursing course for senior level nursing students), Nursing Informatics (An introduction to Nursing Informatics for undergraduate nursing students), Professional Role Development (A nursing course for senior level nursing students), and Women's Health (An introduction to Women's Health Issues for undergraduate nursing students). I am also developing virtual courses for continuing education and credit.
My research interests include Computer-Mediated Instruction, Nursing Informatics, Human-Computer Interface,Maternal-Child Health, and Community and Family Health Nursing.

Then, attach a one page description on the major hazards to humans in
the vicinity of this volcano. Speculate on what you would do if you
were in charge of minimizing the risk to the population.
In this lesson you will use the Internet
to research information on volcanoes and then write a report on your
A volcano is a location where magma,
or hot melted rock from within a planet, reaches the surface.
It may happen violently, in a massive supersonic explosion,
or more quietly, as a sticky, slow lava flow.

The study of volcanoes, or Volcanology, includes many odd
terms. How many of these do you know?
Volcanic Places in the USA
Listed below are two places in the United States that are considered
"active" volcanic areas.
Mount St Helens
On May 18, 1980, after a long period of rest, this quiet mountain in
Washington provided detailed observations on
the mechanics of highly explosive eruptions.
This field seismometer measures earthquakes associated with
subsurface volcanic forces and may help to predict future events. It
sits on a plateau known as the "Volcanic Tableland" formed by a major
eruption 600,000 years ago.
Volcanic Places on Mars
Mars has its fair share of volcanic landforms,
including the largest volcano in the universe,
Your mission is to find information and report on a volcano, other
than the ones listed above, that has erupted in the last 100 years.
Your reports must include:
