March 8, 2011 will mark the 100 th anniversary of International Women’s Day (IWD), a global day of recognition. Thousands of events are held around the world to celebrate women’s achievements, discuss issues and inspire women. This year’s theme for IWD is “Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women.” In 1910, Clara Zetkin, leader of the “Women’s Office” for the Social Democratic Party in Germany, proposed the idea of an International Women’s Day at the 2 nd International Conference of Working Women.

Over the course of history languages continually infiltrate each other, as words are spread by conquest, empire, trade, religion, technology or - in modern times - global entertainment. A good surviving example of this process is the line in western Europe dividing the Romance languages (those deriving from a 'Roman' example) from the Germanic tongues. The Romance family includes Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Romanian (the result of a successful Roman campaign in the 2nd century AD). The Germanic group is English, Dutch, Flemish, German, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and Icelandic.
Delicious cell project created by a 7th grade science student. My son's The Scarlet Letter Project. It was all I could do to keep him from making an F on this one because it looked and smelled so good. As yummy as both projects look do they really teach others about cells or Nathaniel Hawthorne's literary masterpiece? It is getting close to the end of the term and that usually means project time.

Science Fair Central- great ideas on things to focus on and things to avoid with your science fair projectDo For any drawings or written text, start with pencil, not pen. Sketch a rough layout on a piece of paper before pasting up your display.
