Tree of Life Web Project The Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world. On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, and their evolutionary history (phylogeny). Each page contains information about a particular group, e.g., salamanders, segmented worms, phlox flowers, tyrannosaurs, euglenids, Heliconius butterflies, club fungi, or the vampire squid. ToL pages are linked one to another hierarchically, in the form of the evolutionary tree of life. Starting with the root of all Life on Earth and moving out along diverging branches to individual species, the structure of the ToL project thus illustrates the genetic connections between all living things.

A List of Picture Books with Strong Rhyme and Rhythm A List of Picture Books with Strong Rhyme and Rhythm by Susan Stephenson, www.thebookchook.com Strong rhyme and rhythm in a children’s picture books is important for good reasons: Kids respond to rhyme and rhythm, done well. Tracks It has been four years since the percussive, polyrhythmic sounds of Lisbon's batida scene began trickling out of the city on the Tagus and making their way to the outside world (or at least the rest of Europe and North America)—first via DJ Marfox and his Príncipe Discos debut, Eu Sei Quem Sou, and then peers and protégés like DJ Nigga Fox, Blacksea Não Maya, Piquenos DJs Do Guetto, and Nidia Minaj. The music's path has run parallel, in some ways, to Chicago footwork's: both are inner-city styles built around radically innovative rhythms that at first could sound forbiddingly difficult to untrained ears, and both have bubbled up to influence the wider electronic landscape. If batida no longer sounds quite as alien as it did upon a first encounter with its spinning rotors and elliptical movements, it's still dazzling in its rhythmic complexity: Atop a shuffling approximation of a 4/4 beat balances an unsteady beehive of motion, aswarm with kinetic energy.
