Don't Like Facebook? Alternative Social Networking Sites There are hundreds of social networks, including quite a few 10 million + member networks. Different countries and regions have their own popular social networks (Qzone and WeChat in China, Cyworld in South Korea, Mixi in Japan, etc.). In the Western world, there are several alternatives to Facebook: BookBlock: A Content Flip Plugin A jQuery plugin that will create a booklet-like component that let's you navigate through its items by flipping the pages. View demo Download source BookBlock is a plugin that can be used for creating booklet-like components that allow a “page flip” navigation. Any content can be used, such as images or text.

How to Connect With Other Teachers in the Social Age In the 2012 Primary Sources Survey conducted by Scholastic and The Gates Foundation, teacher respondents claimed to spend only about 4% of each day collaborating with colleagues, while 44% of teachers surveyed responded that they would like that collaboration time to increase. Traditionally, the teaching profession has been an isolating one—if you’re not spending every minute at school teaching classes, tutoring during your breaks, or covering someone else’s class, then you’re likely spending that time disciplining, administrating testing, or scrambling to the microwave to reheat leftovers during your 15-minute lunch break. In addition, as state and district mandates swing from one end of the pendulum to the other, teachers are so completely overwhelmed with trying to follow all of the rules that they are left with no time to develop themselves and their practices.

In this tutorial I'll demonstrate how I give my google maps a more realistic look and I'll give you some tips on how to make your own maps really shine! Step 1: Warming Up Our aim is to give the map a realistic look, while still allowing the user to zoom and pan it. We're going to obtain this effect by creating a semi-transparent .png image that will mask the map, then we'll use some CSS to position it on top of the map. Before opening Photoshop I suggest you take a real map, or a sheet of paper, and fold it like the map you're trying to render.

How to Create a Modern Ribbon Banner Navigation Bar with Pure HTML/CSS3 As CSS3 becomes more robust and is more widely supported, the options for fun modern design elements that can be created without graphics are virtually limitless! For a recent project, I decided to see if I could create a centered ribbon banner with pure CSS3. This tutorial will walk you through how it was done. As it turns out, it’s actually quite easy, using only simple, semantic HTML and some CSS3 trickery thanks to the magic of the the border-width property.
