Hi-SEAS and Mars Society kick off new season of missions The Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (aka. Hi-SEAS) – a human spaceflight analog for Mars located on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii – just kicked off its third research mission designed to simulate manned missions on Mars. Located at an elevation of 2500 meters (8,200 feet) above sea level, the analog site is located in a dry, rocky environment that is very cold and subject to very little precipitation. While there, the crew of Mission Three will conduct detailed research studies to determine what is required to sustain a space flight crew during an extended mission to Mars and while living on Mars. The six-member team includes Martha Lenio (Commander), Allen Mirkadyrov, Sophie Milam, Neil Sheibelhut, Jocelyn Dunn, and Zak Wilson, with Ed Fix and Micheal Castro in Reserve. This crew will spend the next 254 days living in conditions that closely resemble those present on the Martian surface.

New Upgrade to Pixelmator Strengthens Case for it being the Best Photo Editing App on the Mac. · TeacherCast Educational Broadcasting NetworkbyJeffrey Bradbury May 26, 2016 Today, Pixelmator announced the arrival of version 3.5 of it’s powerful yet inexpensive graphic editing application. For the last 5 years, Pixelmator has been my go-to application for all of the graphic work on TeacherCast.

First is that it is iCloud based. this means that no matter what computer I happen to be working on, I know all of my TeacherCast graphics are with me ready for creating my next post.

The Ultimate Directory Of Free Image Sources – The Edublogger The Ultimate Directory Of Free Image Sources – The Edublogger So, you need an image for your blog? We’ve spent some time categorizing our favorite sources for free images and organizing them in such a way as to help you find what you’re looking for. Here are the criteria we’ve examined: Subjects: Does a site focus on specific genres of images, or is it a mass collection of various image types? High Resolution: Lots of great image resources emerged in the pre-Web 2.0 phase, but it wasn’t until bandwidth dramatically increased that allowed for the uploading of much higher resolution images suitable for editing and printing. License: The licenses vary extremely from source to source. Safety: Government sites and many specific subject collections are extremely safe for students to use. Search Engines While these websites do not actually contribute image content themselves, they’re able to index images in a way that makes it easier to search for free content.

On a fairly regular basis I'm asked for suggestions on places to find public domain images. I have a handful of go-to sites that I usually recommend. Pixabay is currently my first recommendation for a place to find and download quality public domain images. You can search on Pixabay by using keywords or you can simply browse through the library of images. When you find an image you can download it in the size that suits your needs. Every Stock Photo is a search engine for public domain and Creative Commons licensed pictures. The Morgue File photo collection contains thousands of images that anyone can use for free in academic or commercial presentations. Each time that I visit it the Flickr Commons collection seems to have grown. Bing has an option for finding public domain images. 5 Good Places for Students to Find Public Domain Images

Nature is cruel. There is no getting round that. Some creatures inflict all manner of horrible torments on others in order to feed and reproduce, or even just to play. Many species across the animal kingdom are cannibals, eating members of their own species for sustenance or dominance. But there is one behaviour that is even more extreme than simple cannibalism. We asked our readers if they had ever heard about animals eating themselves. It is better to lose a limb than to lose your life "I don't think any animal would deliberately try to consume itself for sustenance.... kind of defeats the self-preservation part [of] desperate eating," says Selina Tick Konkin. This is true, and distressingly well-documented. One unfortunate tiger in Tesso Nilo National Park in central Sumatra was photographed in 2007 with a front paw missing. However, none of these are cases of autocannibalism. Extreme as these acts are, there is a clear logic to them. William T. Similarly, James B. Earth - Autocannibalism is when you eat bits of your own body
Agnes Martin, a Matter-of-Fact Mystic The abstract painter Agnes Martin died in 2004, at the age of ninety-two, and a new retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum affirms that the greatness of her work has only amplified in the years since. That’s something of a surprise: no setting would seem less congenial to the strict angles of Martin’s paintings than the curves of Frank Lloyd Wright’s creamy seashell. I also worried that the work’s repetitive formulas—grids and stripes, mostly gray or palely colored, often six feet square—would add aesthetic fatigue to the mild toll of a hike up the ramp. Each canvas, as selected and installed by the curators, Tiffany Bell and Tracey Bashkoff, evinces a particular character. The show starts with a late climax: “The Islands I-XII” (1979), a dozen paintings in acrylic that at first glance appear almost identically all-white but which deploy differently proportioned horizontal bands and pencilled lines. “The Islands” crowned the second act of Martin’s career.
