Somatosphere

June 27, 2016

Somatosphere
http://somatosphere.net

Somatosphere describes itself as “a collaborative website covering the intersections of medical anthropology, science and technology studies, cultural psychiatry, psychology, and bioethics.” Authored by an international group of scholars, Somatosphere articles examine the connections between cultural and social phenomena and scientific, technological, and medical issues. Readers can browse for articles by subject tags, and the site has an especially rich collection of musings on neuroscience, epidemiology, technology, and the pharmaceutical industry. In contrast to many internet blogs, which tend to publish exclusively bite-sized pieces, Somatosphere includes numerous long-reads and a handful of serialized articles. This format allows for in depth explorations on topics including the rise of drug resistant tuberculosis and issues related to neo-natal care. Somatosphere regularly publishes summaries of new journal articles and “web round-ups” to keep readers abreast of recent articles, both scholarly and popular, that are related to the intersections of social science, technology, and science. In addition, the site includes Book Reviews and an occasional Book Forum, in which multiple scholars discuss a new publication. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

Schoology

Schoology
https://www.schoology.com

Schoology is a learning management system that can be used either in academic classrooms or for workplace professional development courses. Instructors can post assignments, discussion questions, quizzes, and course documents for students to use. Once instructors grant students access to the course (which they can easily do by providing students with a short access code), students can access all course materials and participate in course discussion. One strength of Schoology is its simplicity; each component of the website is clearly labeled and easy to navigate. In addition, the discussion page on Schoology will look familiar to anyone who has commented on Facebook or other social media platforms. For these reasons, Schoology is an especially helpful resource for those working with individuals who are just beginning to develop computer literacy.

Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures

June 24, 2016

Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures
https://www.astrosociety.org/education/silicon-valley-astronomy-lectures

In 1999, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the SETI Institute, NASA’s Ames Research Center, and the Foothill College Astronomy Program teamed up to create the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lectures. Each lecture, presented at Foothill College in the Silicon Valley, is approximately 90 minutes in length and features various noted astronomers as they make astronomical phenomena accessible to the general public. For example, in November 2015, Harvard University’s Richard Kirshner explained the recent astronomical discovery of cosmic acceleration – growing evidence that the universe is expanding at an increasingly rapid speed. With this resource, users may opt to either download these lectures as podcasts or listen to them online. Alternatively, the lectures in this series are also available on the SVAstronomyLectures YouTube channel and include slides that provide helpful visuals. That said, these lectures do not center on visuals, and thus can be understood just as enjoyably in podcast form. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™.

Snitch.Name – Name Search

June 24, 2016

Snitch.Name – Name Search
http://snitch.name/

This application was originally a tool they developed because they were tired of having to search in various places to find information about someone they met. It hasn’t been designed to be fancy, but solves a real world problem until the people that build social services decide on some profile searching APIs. Until that time comes snitch.name is the best tool for the job. Search for information about your friends, mates, new collegues, etc. See how your name ranks on the social web. Use it as a central gateway for the social services you use. This will be added to Finding People Subject Tracer™.
