In 2017 my Website was migrated to the clouds and reduced in size.
Hence some links below are broken.
One thing to try if a “www” link is broken is to substitute “faculty” for “www”
For example a broken link
http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/Pictures.htm
can be changed to corrected link
http://faculty.trinity.edu/rjensen/Pictures.htm
However in some cases files had to be removed to reduce the size of my Website
Contact me at 
rjensen@trinity.edu if you really need to file that is missing

MIT's Video Lecture Search Engine: Watch the video at --- http://web.sls.csail.mit.edu/lectures/
Researchers at MIT have released a video and audio search tool that solves one of the most challenging problems in the field: how to break up a lengthy academic lecture into manageable chunks, pinpoint the location of keywords, and direct the user to them. Announced last month, the MIT
Lecture Browser website gives the general public detailed access to more than 200 lectures publicly available though the university's OpenCourseWare initiative. The search engine leverages decades' worth of speech-recognition research at MIT and other institutions to
convert audio
into text and make it searchable.
Kate Greene, MIT's Technology Review, November 26, 2007 --- http://www.technologyreview.com/Infotech/19747/?nlid=686&a=f
Once again, the Lecture Browser link (with video) is at http://web.sls.csail.mit.edu/lectures/

Affirmative Action Favors Women, Blacks and Latinos Over Whites and Asian Males  in Science Tenure Track Hiring

"Advantage Women,," by Colleen Flaherty," National Academy of Sciences via Inside Higher Ed, April 14, 2015 ---
https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/04/14/study-suggests-stem-faculty-hiring-favors-women-over-men

Many studies suggest that women scientists aspiring to careers in academe face roadblocks, including bias -- implicit or overt -- in hiring. But a new study is throwing a curveball into the literature, suggesting that women candidates are favored 2 to 1 over men for tenure-track positions in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. Could it be that STEM gender diversity and bias awareness efforts are working, or even creating a preference for female candidates -- or is something more nuanced going on? Experts say it’s probably both.

Wendy M. Williams, professor of human development at Cornell University, and Stephen Ceci, the Helen L. Carr Professor of Developmental Psychology at Cornell, are no strangers to complicating research on gender bias in STEM. In a 2010 paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, for example, they argued that women’s life choices, whether voluntary or constrained, better explain women’s underrepresentation in STEM than the usual suspects of discrimination in journal and grant reviewing and hiring. (They argued such biases were things of the past, and that efforts to address them missed the real source of the problem.)

OPNSense --- https://opnsense.org/
OPNSense is an open source operating system that can be used to build a firewall appliance. When installed on a dedicated computer (typically with at least two network cards), it can provide protection and monitoring for an entire network. OPNSense includes "captive portal" features that can be used to manage a public wifi network. It also incorporates network traffic monitoring using the industry-standard Netflow system. OPNSense administrators can also enable category-based web filtering (e.g. for school networks). A number of VPN options are included as well, including OpenVPN, IPsec, L2TP, and PPTP. All of OPNSense's features are configured through a web-based interface for which extensive online documentation is available. The smallest machine that can run OPNsense will have a 500MNz intel processor with 512MB of memory and 4 GB of storage. For full functionality, the OPNSense project recommends a 1.5 GHz intel processor, 4GB of memory, and 120GB of storage.

This past week, two separate research teams announced that they had sequenced the DNA of early strands of Hepatitis B (HBV) from the skeletons of humans who lived thousands of years ago. In doing so, the two research groups have uncovered new insights into the history of the virus that continues to have a devastating impact around the globe. One of the two research teams was headed by Ben Krause-Kyora of Kiel University and Johannes Krause of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History. This team sequenced the DNA of Hepatitis B viruses found on three skeletons from individuals who lived from 1,000 to 7,000 years ago, respectively. This team reported their research on bioRxiv. On Wednesday, a second team of scientists headed by Eske Willerslev (an evolutionary geneticist who is a professor at the University of Cambridge in the UK and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark) published an article in Nature outlining their research. This team successfully sequenced HBV DNA from 12 skeletons of individuals who lived between 4,500 and 820 years ago. University of Sydney virologist Edward C. Holmes remarked on this study: "It's a hugely important moment in our understanding of one the most important pathogens of humans." [MMB]

The first three links take readers to three summaries of these two new research studies. These summaries come from Carl Zimmer of The New York Times, Sarah Zhang of The Atlantic, and Michael Price of Science Magazine. Earlier this year, another team of scientists at Rutgers University sequenced HBV DNA from the mummy of a child who lived approximately 450 years ago and published their results in PLOS One. Readers will find that study via the fourth link. Those interested in learning (or teaching) more about the science of viruses may find the National Center for Biotechnology Information's online resource on the subject to be helpful. Finally, the last link takes visitors to Khan Academy's helpful video about viruses.

Affirmative Action Favors Women, Blacks and Latinos Over Whites and Asian Males  in Science Tenure Track Hiring

"Advantage Women,," by Colleen Flaherty," National Academy of Sciences via Inside Higher Ed, April 14, 2015 ---
https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2015/04/14/study-suggests-stem-faculty-hiring-favors-women-over-men

Many studies suggest that women scientists aspiring to careers in academe face roadblocks, including bias -- implicit or overt -- in hiring. But a new study is throwing a curveball into the literature, suggesting that women candidates are favored 2 to 1 over men for tenure-track positions in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. Could it be that STEM gender diversity and bias awareness efforts are working, or even creating a preference for female candidates -- or is something more nuanced going on? Experts say it’s probably both.

Wendy M. Williams, professor of human development at Cornell University, and Stephen Ceci, the Helen L. Carr Professor of Developmental Psychology at Cornell, are no strangers to complicating research on gender bias in STEM. In a 2010 paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, for example, they argued that women’s life choices, whether voluntary or constrained, better explain women’s underrepresentation in STEM than the usual suspects of discrimination in journal and grant reviewing and hiring. (They argued such biases were things of the past, and that efforts to address them missed the real source of the problem.)

Stephen Hawking's PhD thesis becomes freely available online, letting anyone see the essay that started it all

Stephen Hawking Lecture: How to Escape Out of a Black Hole
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_d7O9JGo_s

On Tuesday, March 14, physicist Stephen Hawking died at his home in Cambridge, England at the age of 76. Throughout his career, Hawking used quantum physics to illuminate one of the most enigmatic parts of the cosmos: black holes. Hawking was born in Oxford, England, on January 8, 1942. He attended University College, Oxford (where he later claimed that he studied only about an hour a day) and then attended Cambridge to pursue graduate studies. In 1963, at the age of 21, Hawking was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and was told that he had, at best, three years to live. Hawking later reported that his diagnosis sparked his determination to pursue his research. "When you are faced with the possibility of an early death, it makes you realize that life is worth living and that there are a lot of things you want to do," he said. In 1970, Hawking collaborated with Roger Penrose to publish an article explaining how the universe emerged from a singularity. In 1974, Hawking published a paper demonstrating that black holes emit radiation (now called "Hawking Radiations"). In 1988 Hawking wrote the best-selling A Brief History of Time, which garnered critical acclaim for making complex scientific ideas accessible the general public.

The first link takes readers to an obituary of Stephen Hawking by Ian Sample at The Guardian. This obituary includes a link to a second Guardian obituary for Hawking authored by his colleague Roger Penrose. The second link takes readers to Dennis Overbye's obituary of Hawking for The New York Times. Moving along, the third link takes readers to an October 2017 Independent report that Hawking's Ph.D. thesis is now available online through Cambridge's Apollo system. (The article includes a link for those interested in exploring the thesis). The fourth link takes readers to a short documentary film clip, courtesy of the BBC, that explains Hawking radiation. Finally, the last two links take readers to video recordings of two lectures by Hawking: his 2008 TED Talk, "Questioning the universe" and a 2015 lecture presented at the University of Southern California entitled "How to Get Out of a Black Hole."

    OPNSense --- https://opnsense.org/
    OPNSense is an open source operating system that can be used to build a firewall appliance. When installed on a dedicated computer (typically with at least two network cards), it can provide protection and monitoring for an entire network. OPNSense includes "captive portal" features that can be used to manage a public wifi network. It also incorporates network traffic monitoring using the industry-standard Netflow system. OPNSense administrators can also enable category-based web filtering (e.g. for school networks). A number of VPN options are included as well, including OpenVPN, IPsec, L2TP, and PPTP. All of OPNSense's features are configured through a web-based interface for which extensive online documentation is available. The smallest machine that can run OPNsense will have a 500MNz intel processor with 512MB of memory and 4 GB of storage. For full functionality, the OPNSense project recommends a 1.5 GHz intel processor, 4GB of memory, and 120GB of storage.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h5Jd7sgQWY

    This past week, two separate research teams announced that they had sequenced the DNA of early strands of Hepatitis B (HBV) from the skeletons of humans who lived thousands of years ago. In doing so, the two research groups have uncovered new insights into the history of the virus that continues to have a devastating impact around the globe. One of the two research teams was headed by Ben Krause-Kyora of Kiel University and Johannes Krause of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History. This team sequenced the DNA of Hepatitis B viruses found on three skeletons from individuals who lived from 1,000 to 7,000 years ago, respectively. This team reported their research on bioRxiv. On Wednesday, a second team of scientists headed by Eske Willerslev (an evolutionary geneticist who is a professor at the University of Cambridge in the UK and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark) published an article in Nature outlining their research. This team successfully sequenced HBV DNA from 12 skeletons of individuals who lived between 4,500 and 820 years ago. University of Sydney virologist Edward C. Holmes remarked on this study: "It's a hugely important moment in our understanding of one the most important pathogens of humans." [MMB]

    The first three links take readers to three summaries of these two new research studies. These summaries come from Carl Zimmer of The New York Times, Sarah Zhang of The Atlantic, and Michael Price of Science Magazine. Earlier this year, another team of scientists at Rutgers University sequenced HBV DNA from the mummy of a child who lived approximately 450 years ago and published their results in PLOS One. Readers will find that study via the fourth link. Those interested in learning (or teaching) more about the science of viruses may find the National Center for Biotechnology Information's online resource on the subject to be helpful. Finally, the last link takes visitors to Khan Academy's helpful video about viruses.

    Stephen Hawking Lecture: How to Escape Out of a Black Hole
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_d7O9JGo_s

    On Tuesday, March 14, physicist Stephen Hawking died at his home in Cambridge, England at the age of 76. Throughout his career, Hawking used quantum physics to illuminate one of the most enigmatic parts of the cosmos: black holes. Hawking was born in Oxford, England, on January 8, 1942. He attended University College, Oxford (where he later claimed that he studied only about an hour a day) and then attended Cambridge to pursue graduate studies. In 1963, at the age of 21, Hawking was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and was told that he had, at best, three years to live. Hawking later reported that his diagnosis sparked his determination to pursue his research. "When you are faced with the possibility of an early death, it makes you realize that life is worth living and that there are a lot of things you want to do," he said. In 1970, Hawking collaborated with Roger Penrose to publish an article explaining how the universe emerged from a singularity. In 1974, Hawking published a paper demonstrating that black holes emit radiation (now called "Hawking Radiations"). In 1988 Hawking wrote the best-selling A Brief History of Time, which garnered critical acclaim for making complex scientific ideas accessible the general public.

    The first link takes readers to an obituary of Stephen Hawking by Ian Sample at The Guardian. This obituary includes a link to a second Guardian obituary for Hawking authored by his colleague Roger Penrose. The second link takes readers to Dennis Overbye's obituary of Hawking for The New York Times. Moving along, the third link takes readers to an October 2017 Independent report that Hawking's Ph.D. thesis is now available online through Cambridge's Apollo system. (The article includes a link for those interested in exploring the thesis). The fourth link takes readers to a short documentary film clip, courtesy of the BBC, that explains Hawking radiation. Finally, the last two links take readers to video recordings of two lectures by Hawking: his 2008 TED Talk, "Questioning the universe" and a 2015 lecture presented at the University of Southern California entitled "How to Get Out of a Black Hole."

  • World Weather --- http://www.clicktorelease.com/code/weather/ 

    What's going on in the world of weather? Are there storms around Sri Lanka? What about the snows of Kilimanjaro? These can be pressing questions, indeed, and the World Weather app is a great way to stay in touch with weather patterns around the globe. Users will find that they can just type in a city name to see the current weather and also zoom around the globe as they see fit. It's a remarkable addition to the world of existing weather tracking apps and is compatible with all operating systems.

    "U. of Manitoba Researchers Publish Open-Source Handbook on Educational Technology," by Steve Kolowich, Chronicle of Higher Education, March 19, 2009 --- http://chronicle.com/wiredcampus/index.php?id=3671&utm_source=wc&utm_medium=en

    Technology is changing the way students learn. Is it changing the way colleges teach?

    Not enough, says George Siemens, associate director of research and development at the University of Manitoba’s Learning Technologies Centre.

    While colleges and universities have been “fairly aggressive” in adapting their curricula to the changing world, Mr. Siemens told The Chronicle, “What we haven’t done very well in the last few decades is altering our pedagogy.”

    To help get colleges thinking about how they might adapt their teaching styles to the new ways students absorb and process information, Mr. Siemens and Peter Tittenberger, director of the center, have created a Web-based guide, called the Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning.

    Taking their own advice, they have outfitted the handbook with a wiki function that will allow readers to contribute their own additions.

    In the its introduction, the handbook declares the old pedagogical model—where the students draw their information primarily from textbooks, newspapers, and their professors—dead. “Our learning and information acquisition is a mash-up,” the authors write. “We take pieces, add pieces, dialogue, reframe, rethink, connect, and ultimately, we end up with some type of pattern that symbolizes what’s happening ‘out there’ and what it means to us.” Students are forced to develop new ways of making sense of this flood of information fragments.

    But Mr. Siemens said that colleges had been slow to appreciate this fact. “I don’t see a lot of research coming out on what universities might look like in the future,” he said. “If how we interact with information and with each other fundamentally changes, it would suggest that the institution also needs to change.”

    Preface

    This Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning (HETL) has been designed as a resource for educators planning to incorporate technologies in their teaching and learning activities.

    Introduction

    How is education to fulfill its societal role of clarifying confusion when tools of control over information creation and dissemination rest in the hands of learners[3], contributing to the growing complexity and confusion of information abundance?

    Change Pressures and Trends

    Global, political, social, technological, and educational change pressures are disrupting the traditional role (and possibly design) of universities. Higher education faces a "re-balancing" in response to growing points of tension along the following fault lines...

    What we know about learning

    Over the last century, educator’s understanding of the process and act of learning has advanced considerably.

    Technology, Teaching, and Learning

    Technology is concerned with "designing aids and tools to perfect the mind". As a means of extending the sometimes limited reach of humanity, technology has been prominent in communication and learning. Technology has also played a role in classrooms through the use of movies, recorded video lectures, and overhead projectors. Emerging technology use is growing in communication and in creating, sharing, and interacting around content.

    Media and technology

    A transition from epistemology (knowledge) to ontology (being) suggests media and technology need to be employed to serve in the development of learners capable of participating in complex environments.

    Change cycles and future patterns

    It is not uncommon for theorists and thinkers to declare some variation of the theme "change is the only constant". Surprisingly, in an era where change is prominent, change itself has not been developed as a field of study. Why do systems change? Why do entire societies move from one governing philosophy to another? How does change occur within universities?

    New Learners? New Educators? New Skills?

    New literacies (based on abundance of information and the significant changes brought about technology) are needed. Rather than conceiving literacy as a singular concept, a multi-literacy view is warranted.

    Tools

    Each tool possesses multiple affordances. Blogs, for example, can be used for personal reflection and interaction. Wikis are well suited for collaborative work and brainstorming. Social networks tools are effective for the formation of learning and social networks. Matching affordances of a particular tool with learning activities is an important design and teaching activity

    Research

    Evaluating the effectiveness of technology use in teaching and learning brings to mind Albert Einstein’s statement: "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted". When we begin to consider the impact and effectiveness of technology in the teaching and learning process, obvious questions arise: "How do we measure effectiveness? Is it time spent in a classroom? Is it a function of test scores? Is it about learning? Or understanding?"

    Conclusion

    Through a process of active experimentation, the academy’s role in society will emerge as a prominent sensemaking and knowledge expansion institution, reflecting of the needs of learners and society while maintaining its role as a transformative agent in pursuit of humanity’s highest ideals.

    Community College Open-Textbook Project Gets Under Way
    Especially note the open sharing sources being used

    The Community College Open Textbook Project begins this week with a member meeting in California," by Catherine Rampell, Chronicle of Higher Education, April 29, 2008 --- Click Here

    At the meeting, representatives of institutions around the country will start reviewing open-textbook models for “quality, usability, accessibility, and sustainability,” according to a news release. They will initially review four providers of free online educational resources: Connexions, run by Rice University; Flat World Knowledge, a commercial digital-textbook publisher that will begin offering free textbooks online next year; the University of California’s UC College Prep Online, which offers Advanced Placement and other courses online; and the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources, which was founded by the Foothill-De Anza Community College District and the League for Innovation in the Community College.

    The open-textbook project was paid for by a $530,000 grant to the Foothill-De Anza Community College District from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.

    This course examines the role of the engineer as patent expert and as technical witness in court and patent interference and related proceedings. It discusses the rights and obligations of engineers in connection with educational institutions, government, and large and small businesses. It compares various manners of transplanting inventions into business operations, including development of New England and other U.S. electronics and biotechnology industries and their different types of institutions. The course also considers American systems of incentive to creativity apart from the patent laws in the atomic energy and space fields.

    Question
    How does a nuclear power plant really work?

    HowStuffWorks: "How Nuclear Power Works" http://www.howstuffworks.com/nuclear-power.htm

    July 10, 2008 message from Carly Smith [carly.smith@brighthub.com]

    Dear Professor Jenson,

    While doing some research for my job I somehow stumbled across your delightful site and your very interesting assortment of links and quotes. I spent quite a bit of time exploring your page, and especially enjoyed the link to World Clock. You seem to have a wide variety of interests!

    I am working as an Editorial Assistant at BrightHub.Com, a science and tech website offering articles from professionals around the world. One of my responsibilities is the mechanical engineering channel: http://www.brighthub.com/Engineering/Mechanical.aspx . I noticed you have quite a few links to HowStuffWorks, and thought you might enjoy reading one of our articles on How a Nuclear Power Plant Works, http://www.brighthub.com/Engineering/Mechanical/articles/2329.aspx . I think it offers a nice introduction into the world of nuclear power. I would recommend exploring the rest of our site as well; I think you’ll find a lot that interests you!

    Thank you for your time! We are seeking to make Bright Hub an excellent resource for learners of all ages and backgrounds and would appreciate feedback from a professional such as yourself. I am including my contact information below so feel free to send me comments and suggestions. If you enjoyed reading the article on How a Nuclear Power Plant Works or our Mechanical Engineering channel in general we would appreciate the reference!

    Sincerely,

    Carly Smith

    August 8, 2011 message from biology professor Bob Blystone

    I wish I had discovered this before the end of summer.  Baylor College of Medicine has an interesting education project known as BioEd Online.  One of their projects might interest middle school aged kids...  Spiders in Space.  A variety of activities and a possible science fair project, all done digitally.

    http://www.bioedonline.org/space/STS_Mission_134S.cfm

    Have a look before we are all back to school.

    The asters reveal themselves in the late summer and I pull them everywhere I can in our wildflower field and wild roses. Down the road an outstanding lupine field was taken over with asters. It had to be plowed up and replanted with lupines (that are slow coming back).

    If This Then That  --- https://ifttt.com 

    If This Then That (IFTTT) is an innovative web-based service that helps users easily and automatically facilitate numerous computerized tasks. The service operates on the premise of user-initiated "recipes" - a combination of two "channels," or services. Readers simply enter a "trigger channel" and an "action channel" to create a recipe. Each time the trigger occurs, the action follows. For instance, readers may ask IFTTT to email them any time the temperature falls below freezing, or text them anytime the Philadelphia Eagles appear in the news. Sign up is free, and the website is simple and intuitive. IFTTT works compatibly with numerous apps, including Instagram, Dropbox, and Blogger.
