Time for an update? We think so.
BOS academic : The Miura-Ori map The Miura-Ori map by Ian Bain Folded maps are merciless to the user who makes the slightest error in returning them to their compact form. Maternal invasion history of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus into the Isthmus of Panama: Implications for the control of emergent viral disease agents Abstract Despite an increase in dengue outbreaks and the arrival of chikungunya and Zika disease in Panama, studies on the demographic history of the invasive Aedes mosquitoes that are the principle vectors of these diseases are still lacking in this region. Here, we assess the genetic diversity of these mosquitoes in order to decipher their invasion histories into the Isthmus of Panama. PearlTrees: A Tool for Organizing Online Resources I love learning new tech tools, and while I'd heard of PearlTrees before, I had never taken the time to work with it. It's a pretty slick tool! Basically, PearlTrees is a social bookmarking tool, but the design of it makes it particularly conducive to creating a curated collection of resources about a given topic. This makes it ideal for educational settings in which you might want to provide students with a curated list of links, infographics, videos and the like to build background for a particular subject. Here's an example PearlTree I created for my Introduction to Education Course. We spend a good bit of time in that course examining school reform initiatives, and this collection of resources will help them understand the history that brought us to the current point, some of the different reform initiatives currently being implemented, and the different perspectives in favor of or strongly opposed to these different reforms.
ngmaps.maps.arcgis Historic photographs and captions by Phil Pennington (1961-64) Produced by National Geographic Maps * In 1963, the diversion tunnels of Glen Canyon Dam closed causing the waters of the Colorado River to back up 186 miles through Glen Canyon to form Lake Powell. Built for political purposes, the dam was originally meant to provide a sustainable water supply to the arid Southwest, but has since undermined that very objective and has caused massive collateral damage across the Colorado River Basin. 23 Fascinating and Forgotten Monuments from Yugoslavia Podgaric – Photograph by Jan Kempenaers Below you will find an incredible collection of photographs by Jan Kempenaers. All of the images are from his book, simply titled Spomenik. You can find the book for sale through his publisher Roma Publications or on Amazon.
Hoodie Origami: Fold your sweatshirt into a laptop bag, baby carrier, etc Posted by Lisa Smith | 10 Mar 2010 | Comments (1) Woah! Antonio Scarponi, founder of Conceptual Devices, has worked out a way to fold your regular hoodie into a laptop bag, baby carrier, pillow, backpack and strap bag. PLOS 26/03/18 Maternal invasion history of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus into the Isthmus of Panama: Implications for the control of emergent viral disease agents Abstract Despite an increase in dengue outbreaks and the arrival of chikungunya and Zika disease in Panama, studies on the demographic history of the invasive Aedes mosquitoes that are the principle vectors of these diseases are still lacking in this region. Here, we assess the genetic diversity of these mosquitoes in order to decipher their invasion histories into the Isthmus of Panama. DNA sequences from the mitochondrial cytochrome C oxidase I gene obtained from 30 localities in 10 provinces confirmed the presence of more than one mitochondrial haplogroup (i.e., maternal lineage) in each species. The invasion of Aedes albopictus was likely from temperate European countries, as the most frequent and widespread haplogroup in Panama harbored variants that are uncommon elsewhere in the Americas. Two infrequent and geographically restricted Ae. albopictus haplotypes appear to have subsequently invaded Panama from neighboring Costa Rica and the USA, respectively.
Nick's Picks for Educational Technology: Pearltrees - Organize and Share Digital Resources Posted March 13, 2015 by Nick LaFave under Sharing Content Pearltreeswww.pearltrees.net Pearltrees has always been much more than a social book marking tool — it allows users to collaboratively gather websites, photos, and notes and organize them into visually appealing collections (similar to folders). It’s a great way for teachers and students to share resources. Today, they rolled out a major update that adds a suite of editing tools into Pearltrees’ organization system for the transformation of collected content. My favorite so far is the browser extension that allows you to save selected portions of websites rather than entire sites.

Mystical, Magical & Magnificent Monasteries in Meteora (20 Pics) The caves in Meteora, Greece, had inhabitants for fifty millennia, but due to raids, “hermit monks” moved to the safety of sandstone rock pinnacles in the 9th century and began building monasteries. More monks and nuns came, building more monasteries perched high upon the cliffs. Wikipedia reports, “Access to the monasteries was originally (and deliberately) difficult, requiring either long ladders lashed together or large nets used to haul up both goods and people. This required quite a leap of faith — the ropes were replaced, so the story goes, only ‘when the Lord let them break.’” UNESCO World Heritage says, “The net in which intrepid pilgrims were hoisted up vertically alongside the 1,224 ft. cliff where the Varlaam monastery dominates the valley symbolizes the fragility of a traditional way of life that is threatened with extinction.”
