Beder Bed - Our Beds are Beder! USA's #1 Memory Foam Mattress Liquidator - FREE DELIVERY, 120 DAY TRIAL, FREE OFFERINGS! 0 A.D. :: Wildfire Games With recent games such as Red Dead Redemption, Left 4 Dead 2, and The Last of Us being hugely successful, we have decided to change the overall direction of 0 A.D. so that it can appeal to a wider audience. We have many gameplay changes planned, such as removing the Roman faction and replacing it with an AI controlled horde of zombies. This transformation will probably take a few weeks to complete. The name Apocalypse of the Dead works well with our current title 0 A.D. because it means we don’t have to purchase new domain names. 0 A.D. Wildfire Games, the international group of volunteers developing 0 A.D., is happy to present this week’s 0 A.D. development report. Enrique’s new horses (WIP).

Does the Apple fall far from the tree? – Sharing one iPad among many users 2012 K-12 Horizon Report The 2012 Horizon Report identifies mobile devices and tablet computing as technologies expected to enter mainstream use in education within one year or less. The mobility of these devices, their almost instant accessibility, the ease with which the touch screens promote interaction and the huge range of educational apps available for very reasonable prices appeal to both teachers and students. The flexibility of mobile devices is undeniable. cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo shared by flickingerbrad This scenario, of having one iPad shared among multiple users is likely to be far more common that the 1-1 scenario in most schools, as the technology is still relatively new, and education budgets grow increasingly tight. Sharing iPads among whole classes and small groups can still lead to effective learning. Apps such as Futaba, which allow multiple students to play together on the iPad are also terrific options, and the list of these multiplayer apps is growing.

Kuiper-Oort The Kuiper Belt is a disk-shaped region past the orbit of Neptune extending roughly from 30 to 50 AU from the Sun containing many small icy bodies. It is now considered to be the source of the short-period comets. Occasionally the orbit of a Kuiper Belt object will be disturbed by the interactions of the giant planets in such a way as to cause the object to cross the orbit of Neptune. It will then very likely have a close encounter with Neptune sending it out of the solar system or into an orbit crossing those of the other giant planets or even into the inner solar system. There are presently nine known objects orbiting between Jupiter and Neptune (including 2060 Chiron (aka 95 P/Chiron) and 5145 Pholus; see the MPC's list). The IAU has designated this class of objects as Centaurs. Curiously, it seems that the Oort Cloud objects were formed closer to the Sun than the Kuiper Belt objects. Several Kuiper Belt objects have been discovered recently including 1992 QB1 and 1993 SC (above).
