  Based on the authors experience in applying different approaches of active learning and student-centered teaching, the main problem that prevented the achievement of the full advantages of these approaches is the lack of motivation of students for self-centered learning. A new model for a student-centered learning is presented in this work. This model is of teaching integrative thinking, based on existing models of creativity and synthesis. In this model, the student is put at the heart of a bigger learning process that includes instructors, specialists and the public. Usually students who are in the final year of their study will be the target of the application of this model as a part of a capstone course or final year project. This model promotes the research and thinking skills of the students as well as the gained motivation of self-learning as a result of being in contact with the specialists who might be their potential future employers. A proto-type web-based system based on this model was developed. Although it is applied on a sample of students from the Biology department, the system is readily expandable to any number of other disciplines without any complications or programming overheads. The results achieved from the application of this model were very encouraging.

  The therapeutic value of doxorubicin (DXO) as anticancer antibiotic is limited by its cardiotoxicity. This study aimed to investigate the protective effect of sesame oil against DXO-induced cardiotoxicity and oxidative stress. The administration of DXO (20 mg kg-1) to Wister male rats, increased serum aspartate aminotransferase and creatine kinase activities (as cardiotoxicity indices) as well as cardiac malondialdehyde and protein carbonyl contents and catalase activity (as markers of oxidative stress). The cardiotoxicity damage in DOX treated rats was accompanied by histo pathological changes such as necrosis and apoptosis in cardiac tissues. These biochemical and histological disturbances were effectively attenuated on pretreatment with sesame oil (5 mL kg-1). These data suggest that sesame oil may be a suitable cardio protector during DOX treatment.
