Description:

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) operates EurekAlert! to provide a website where "universities, medical centers, journals, government agencies, corporations and other organizations engaged in research can bring their news to the media" and to the public. The "Multimedia Gallery" link on the website has audio, video and still images. Typing in "video" in the search box yields 900 results, including an excerpt of a video on climate change produced by the Kenyan Masai community. The video features a Masai woman relating how the drought has killed off most of her herd of goats and cattle, some of which are shown dead in dusty fields. A more hopeful video shows visitors how video game playing helps teenagers with cerebral palsy improve hand functions. The one-minute video shows the baseline functioning of a teen, and his progress 10 months after the study, which shows dramatic improvement. Overall this is a fantastic site for science news, resources, and events.
