In this episode of the Weekly Experiment, Martin Fisher from Science Central explains plate tectonics. What is the geological process, when was the idea developed, and what parts of the earth are effected?
Indiana is losing ground compared to other states when it comes to children’s overall well-being. That’s according to new data from the Annie E Casey’s Foundation’s Kids Count report. But the Indiana Youth Institute says the drop in rankings isn’t as bad as it sounds.
In the 2014 edition of Kids Count, Indiana ranked 27th in children’s overall well-being. This year, that dropped to 32nd.
William S.E. “Doc” Coleman was a dynamic fixture. I did not know him particularly well, and leave the romantic remembrances of his long and illustrious life to others to mark and celebrate.
But I did know him a little. He did his best to direct me in my middling efforts as an actor at Drake University in the mid-1990s. His laugh and his knowing looks are easily remembered. But what strikes me most about his passing on July 8th is how different it was than it might have been even 10 or 15 years ago.
In this episode of The Weekly Experiment, Martin Fisher from Science Central explores the tools used by geologists to measure and record earthquakes. How were they invented, how do they work, and what are the different types?
It’s been nearly six months since HIP 2.0 was approved, and the state has enrolled nearly 300,000 Hoosiers in the health insurance program. More than a dozen health care advocacy groups and insurers sang the praises of the program at a public forum Thursday.
As of July 1st, a little more than 289,000 residents have signed up for health care coverage through HIP 2.0. 186 thousand of them never had health insurance before. And 70 percent of enrollees are using HIP Plus, which requires contributions to a health savings account.
This week on the Weekly Experiment, Martin Fisher discusses the waves caused by earthquakes, which are called seismic waves. What are the different types of waves, where do they move, and what are their shapes?
