Analyzing Community Issues through the Flint, MI Water Contamination Crisis (REVISED)
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

These 3 lessons are for high ABE/low ASE students at a level D-E Reading level to practice identifying key points in video and text and analyzing the causes and effects of social issues, and identifying solutions to these problems. By watching two short videos and reading EPA materials on the effects of lead exposure and a short article on the specific drinking water crisis in Flint, MI, students will examine key issues, analyze the problem and its causes, identify approaches to solving this problem and ones like it in other locations, and apply this approach to other scenarios that are relevant to their immediate lives.

Assessment of the Influence of Biofield Energy Treatment on the Physicochemical and Thermal Properties of Lead Using PXRD, PSA, and DSC
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

The lead metal is used for different purposes, i.e. contraceptive, cosmetics, ornaments, glasses, glazes, enamels, writing material, currency, construction, lead-acid battery, etc. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of the Trivedi Effect® on the physicochemical and thermal properties of lead using PXRD, PSA, and DSC analysis. The lead sample was divided into control and treated parts. The control sample did not receive the Biofield Energy Treatment, whereas the treated sample received the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment remotely by a famous Biofield Energy Healer, Alice Branton. The PXRD peak intensities and crystallite sizes were significantly altered ranging from -60.54% to -37.5% and -17.86% to 177.74%, respectively; whereas the average crystallite size was significantly increased by 138.96% in the treated sample compared with the control sample. The particle size values were significantly increased by 59.62% (d10), 118.05% (d50), 1976.76% (d90) and 1045.85% {D(4,3)}; thus, the specific surface area was significantly decreased by 51.15% in the Biofield Treated lead sample compared with the control sample. The latent heat of fusion was significantly increased by 15.53% in the treated sample compared with the control sample. The Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment might have generated a new polymorphic form of lead which could have better powder flowability and more thermal stability compared with the untreated sample. Therefore, the Biofield Energy Treated lead might minimize the lead poisoning/toxicity of the people continuosly associated with the pipe, paint, food, mining, plastic, glass, chemical, and alloys manufacturing industry.

Chemicals in the Environment
Rating

This kit is a historical overview of American representations of chemicals from the three sisters to the Love Canal. It compares conflicting constructions about nuclear reactor safety, depleted uranium, Rachel Carson and DDT. Through analyzing diverse historic and contemporary media messages, students understand changing public knowledge, impressions and attitudes about chemicals in the environment.

Feel the Stress
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Working individually or in groups, students explore the concept of stress (compression) through physical experience and math. They discover why it hurts more to poke themselves with mechanical pencil lead than with an eraser. Then they prove why this is so by using the basic equation for stress and applying the concepts to real engineering problems.

Molecular Structure of Galena
Rating

Galena is believed to have been mined since 5000 B.C. The Greeks mined the mineral for the lead that it contained. However, today galena is an important part of the mining in the United States, mined in states such as Missouri, Texas, Idaho, Utah, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Australia, Canada, England, France and Mexico are the countries that produce galena. Galena is the most important source of lead, as the main component of galena is lead sulfide, PbS. It also contains silver and other metals; hence, galena is exploited for the production of silver, as well.

Molecular Structure of Molybdenite
Rating

Molybdenite, or "Moly Ore" as it is sometimes called, is a high luster sulfide mineral. The name molybdenite comes from the greek word molybdos, "lead," as it is often a lead-grey color. It is virtually indistinguishable from graphite, except that molybdenite is only slightly lighter in color, yet heavier in weight. Molybdenite ore is composed of smaller molybdenum ions between layers of more massive sulfur ions. The sulfur layer has a strong bond to the molybdenum, but not to other sulfur layers, hence the softness and perfect cleavage. As the most common molybdenum-containing compound, almost all molybdenum is mined in the form of moly ore.

Spectroscopic and Calorimetric Evaluation of the Consciousness Energy Healing Treated Lead
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

Lead metal is used by humans since form prehistoric period for cosmetics, contraceptive, ornaments, glazes, glasses, enamels, writing material, currency, construction, lead-acid battery, etc. The study objective involves the spectroscopic and calorimetric evaluation of the Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treated lead powder sample using PXRD, PSA, and DSC analysis. The lead powder sample was divided into control and treated parts. The control sample did not expose to the Biofield Energy Treatment; however, the treated part of the lead sample received the Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment remotely by a renowned Biofield Energy Healer, Dahryn Trivedi. The particle size values of the Dahryn’s Biofield Energy Treated lead powder sample were significantly increased by 3.05%(d10), 9.5%(d50), 13.34%(d90), and 11.11%{D(4,3)}; thus, the specific surface area was significantly decreased by 6.25% compared with the control sample. The PXRD peak intensities and crystallite sizes of the treated lead powder sample were significantly altered ranging from -16.09% to 104.65% and -36.56% to 15.79%, respectively; whereas the average crystallite size was increased by 4.62% compared with the control sample. The latent heat of fusion was significantly increased by 6.92% in the treated lead powder sample compared with the control sample. The Trivedi Effect®-Consciousness Energy Healing Treatment might be responsible for the generation of a new polymorphic form of lead which may show better powder flowability and thermally more stable compared with the untreated sample. Therefore, the Biofield Energy Treated lead powder would be very helpful to reduce the lead poisoning of the people long-term exposer with the industries manufacturing pipe, paint, food, mining, plastic, glass, chemical, and alloys. Moreover, the improved thermal stability of the treated lead powder would be useful for the metal industry.
