Instead, we have squarely put our focus on those CSS tutorials that not only make the smaller details of the web visually appealing, but are also really useful. You know what we mean… fantastic text effects, innovative button styles, space-saving navigation systems, subtly animated form elements… that kind of thing. We have organised the tutorials and techniques into the following categories: Typography Techniques; Button Tutorials, Menu &amp, Navigation Techniques, Form Element Tutorials, SVG &amp, CSS Styling Techniques, Styling Anchor Links, Web Page Components Tutorials, CSS Layout Techniques, and finally a mixed bag of cool miscellaneous tutorials. Here you go…

Astronomy Picture of the Day Discover the cosmos! Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer. 2016 April 15 Mercury and Crescent Moon Set Image Credit & Copyright: Miguel Claro (TWAN, Dark Sky Alqueva)

Giant Asteroid Vesta Has Mountain Taller Than Anything on Earth A NASA spacecraft orbiting the asteroid Vesta is revealing new details about the huge space rock's surface, including a massive mountain that rises taller than Mt. Everest on Earth. NASA's Dawn probe has been circling Vesta since mid-July, when it arrived in the asteroid belt that orbits the sun between Mars and Jupiter. News Blog - Mike Lynch's "Exploding" Telescope Here's a cautionary story about someone who was careful with his observing gear — and still got burned. Some of you probably know (or know of) Mike Lynch, an avid amateur astronomer who hosts frequent star parties in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. He's the author of several skywatching books, writes a column for the Twin Cities' Pioneer Press, and hosts an astronomy website. You might not know that he's been a meteorologist for radio station WCCO for nearly 30 years. A week ago Lynch headed off to the radio station after observing the night before with his 14½-inch Starmaster Dobsonian.

Zacheis Planetarium Resumes Public Shows After being closed for almost two months, ASU’s planetarium is ready to resume public shows. The complete schedule for the fall semester will be released in the next week, but here’s the general plan… - Thursday evenings, 7:00 and 7:45. We will alternate between movies and live presentations each week. Generador CSS de formularios y otros elementos Its handy and easy-to-use UI allows you to adjust rich graphical styles quickly and without coding. The main features: 2D and 3D transformsmultiple complex transitionsmultiple linear and radial gradientsmultiple box and text shadowscustom fonts (including google fonts)and much moreYou’ll be able to play with all EnjoyCSS parameters just like in photoshop or illustarator (with sliders, colorpickers and etc) combining all possible CSS3 style capabilities for the same element. Moreover you can include pseudo states (:hover, :active, :focus, :after, :before) and style them as well. All required CSS code will be automatically generated by EnjoyCSS. You can easily copy-pase all the code into your environment or get the code for each style aspect separately, e.g., code for each gradient, shadow or transform.

Chromosome Mapping: Human Genome Research in Progress The Human Genome Project was completed in 2003. One of the key research areas was Chromosome Mapping. This page details that research.

NASA-engineered collision spills new Moon secrets Scientists led by Brown University are offering the first detailed explanation of the crater formed when a NASA rocket slammed into the Moon last fall and information about the composition of the lunar soil at the poles that never has been sampled. The findings are published in a set of papers in Science stemming from the successful NASA mission, called LCROSS for Lunar CRater Observing and Sensing Satellite. Peter Schultz and graduate student Brendan Hermalyn analyzed data from bits of the Moon’s surface kicked up by a NASA-engineered collision. They found unexpected complexity — and traces of silver. Credit: Mike Cohea/Brown University Mission control at NASA Ames sent the emptied upper stage of a rocket crashing into the Cabeus crater near the Moon’s south pole last October.
