So I found a few songs on the elements in the periodic table. emoticon

Very nice! I'm always so impressed with the ancients (of so many separate cultures) for their relative sophistication when dealing with astronomy. And through astronomy, mathematics. Must read more scientific histories of the subject...

This is a cute little animation, about a robot who falls in love. I find it remarkable how well the video creates feelings - about an "unfeeling" machine. Maybe there is something for us writers to learn there:

No idea on that Firlefanz, sorry. If I were to guess I'd suspect some kind of programming, though perhaps with ability to adapt to changing circumstances. That way it would be more like they were following guidelines.

Well the imagery is very well done in that video, it's slightly slanted in opinion. But it's not to far away from the facts usually, so I didn't mind to much. emoticon

Did you know there was a "weak form" and "strong form" of tying one's shoelaces?

I know now, thanks to Terry Moore. And I'll have to practice the strong form. emoticon

Hard to say at this point, the group responsible was very thorough in trying to find some kind of explanation, any kind of explanation to show it wasn't Faster Then Light. Considering that and what little I know of the current debate on it, it's quite likely the final word on this might not be said for years to come. (Basically because light speed is so fundamental, that nothing short of exceptional proof will be considered sufficient)

Agreed and well said.

One of the things I found very odd about the whole thing is that here are the scientists involved saying, "Whoa, this is weird. We'd better triple check everything about this finding before trusting it." But a large and vocal minority of commenters on the news articles were saying things like, "Hah! This just proves Science is full of crud." (Amazingly, they turned the word "science" into a swear!) Or, "All those Scientists are just making up things, see?" It seemed really strange to me, given that the scientists were bending over backwards trying to demonstrate that their results were NOT right! My scientist friends and I were deeply disturbed by this, since it seems to be an outgrowth of the anti-science populist trend in the US lately. Really, really strange to see, though!

Re: Online Videos of note


That's pretty cool, QS. Like you, I'm really impressed that it doesn't look more jumpy, especially on the scenes down the river, etc.

I found something sort of neat today. It's not very useful to me, personally, but there's a guy who put together a whole set of little movies to explain (originally) math concepts. Apparently he was using it to tutor his cousins or nephews or something, long-distance. Anyhow, it's expanded to other topics besides middle-school math now, and is kind of neat. I think if I was a kid who was struggling with math in school nowadays, this might be really helpful:

[sign in to see URL]#browse

But as an adult, what I found the most fascinating was that he also set up a way to TRACK what you (or your child/student) is working on, how much time they've spent on what lessons, and how much they've actually accomplished (there are randomized practice questions available). If you join up (it's free), you can see the plots of your stats in terms of pie charts showing what videos and practice questions you've spent your effort on. It's nicely designed.

If you click the "practice" option in the upper right, you'll see a "tree" of practice lessons kids can take. So if you started off solving the "addition 1" practice problems, you'd get a blue star in that box -- and it would highlight the related tasks (ie: subtraction, multiplication, addition 2, number line) on the chart. Which means this can be used as a self-study guide, suggesting areas for students to work on (but not enforcing it). It also makes it feel a little more like a game, which I think would interest competitive kids (ie: me) just because they'll like to COMPLETE it and win the little awards you get after certain levels of accomplishment.

I'm usually pretty against online teaching, because a lot of it is dreadful. And I still wouldn't want this used exclusively instead of teaching. But it'd be great for kids who go to class and still just don't get a particular lesson. Or if you missed a day because you were sick. Or as a way for parents to help their kid catch up over the summer. Anyhow, it's not perfect, but it was neatly done, I thought.

On the web, I found a link to this amazing Ted-Talk video:

]Shawn Achor: The happy secret to better work

It starts out with a hilarious childhood tale, but in the end, some hard data support the idea that happiness should come before success.
