AbstractAssessing that European security cannot be dissassociated from Euro-Atlantic security, Minister Serra points out that after the Cold War the vertical tension between North and South will be the epicenter of the strategic panorama. This tension derives from theexistence of risks that are security related, economic, demographic, political, and social in nature. Serra stresses that the most important risks in the security field evolve from a possible failure in the consolidation of the European security and defense architecture, the uncertainty of Russia’s future, and the access to weapons of mass destruction. Other risks include cultural differences, the repercussions of emerging markets, and the crisis of the state. The author underlines that Spain, as a medium power, can play a role to promote dialogue, cooperation and solidarity as preventive policies, while underlining the importance of the Mediterranean for Europe.

PALS - Performance Assessment Links in Science1999-01PALS is an on-line, standards-based, continually updated resource bank of science performance assessment tasks indexed via the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and various other standards frameworks. The tasks, collected from numerous sources, include student directions and response forms, administration procedures, scoring rubrics, examples of student work, and technical quality data calculated from field testing. On-line rater training packets have also been created for some tasks. PALS is supported by a grant from the Elementary, Secondary, and Informal Education (ESIE) Division (Grant #: ESI-9730651) of the National Science Foundation.

NASA Earth Observatory: Biomes (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) website allows students to investigate biomes and then test their knowledge by completing missions. The site provides basic data about each biome such as temperature, precipitation, vegetation, location, description and links. Biomes discussed include coniferous forest, temperate deciduous forest, desert, grassland, rainforest, shrubland and tundra. The two missions (available at beginner and advanced levels) are designed to teach students about the relationship between temperature and precipitation and plants in biomes. A teacher resource guide provides details about goals, expected outcomes, extension ideas, and hands-on activities.
