People who live in other places all have storm shelters where they go when they receive a storm warning.
20 heroic librarians who save the world With the help of the amazing powers of Bob Newhart, and Jane Curtain. You forgot a small, but vital part of that sentence. I know they were kind of corny, but I liked The Librarian on TNT, especially the first one.
From yesterday's headlines: Air Force pulls 34 nuclear officers off job for alleged test cheating (Associated Press)... 34 are suspected of cheating several months ago on a routine proficiency test that includes checking missile launch officers’ knowledge of how to handle an “emergency war order,” which is the term for the authorization required to launch a nuclear weapon.... [Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James] suggested that the cheating was confined to this single case involving 34 officers, although numerous missile officers have told the AP confidentially that some feel compelled to cut corners on their monthly proficiency tests because of intense pressure to score at the highest levels to advance in the force....The 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom, where all 34 suspected cheaters are based, is responsible for 150 of the 450 ICBMs....The Malmstrom unit failed a nuclear safety and security inspection in August but succeeded on a redo in October.

“Killing Librarianship” Keynote New England Library Association Annual Conference, Burlington, VT. Abstract: What might kill our profession is not ebooks, Amazon or Google, but a lack of imagination.

8. Ask an expert. You pay a mechanic to service your car, even though you may be able to do it yourself. You can colour your own hair, but when you pay a hairdresser to do it the result is much better. There are experts in all areas whom you can pay for service or advice, and this includes experts on books and reading. But there is one difference: you can get advice on books and reading for free.

Introduction to fake websitesLibrarians and educators need to be able to illustrate to students and users alike that websites cannot always be trusted to provide truthful and accurate data. This page provides examples of websites that are full of lies, inaccuracies or false information - either for amusement or for more worrying reasons. The list does not include phishing sites however; these are intended to fool a person into believing that they are visiting a legitimate bank site for example; there are already plenty of links to these online already.

Educational Origami is a blog and a wiki, about 21st Century Teaching and Learning. This wiki is not just about the integration of technology into the classroom, though this is certainly a critical area, it is about shifting our educational paradigm. The world is not as simple as saying teachers are digital immigrants and students digital natives. In fact, we know that exposure to technology changes the brains of those exposed to it. The longer and stronger the exposure and the more intense the emotions the use of the technology or its content evokes, the more profound the change. edorigami.wikispaces

Over the past 2 days Steve Hargadon and the team at Library 2.0 have facilited the third annual worldwide conversation about the future of libraries via the Library 2.013 Worldwide Virtual Conference. Held entirely online, around the clock, in multiple languages and time zones, it's been a fabulous conversation. I only caught parts of it but am looking forward to catching up on those missed via the Session Recordings. Alignment of the Conference Schedule to each time zone made keeping track of sessions simple e.g. the Melbourne Schedule. All sessions were broadcast via Blackboard Collaborate.
