No, Google’s Photos app isn’t uploading photos without you knowing it Over the past day or so we’ve seen a number of reports across the web claiming that Google’s Photos app is uploading photos even after it’s been uninstalled. Of course the worry is that customers could be racking up huge cellular data overages from having it “switched on without them knowing it”. The truth is, having the Photos app installed or uninstalled makes no difference to whether or not your snaps are being uploaded to Google’s drive in the sky. Photos being backed up is a part of Google’s settings, and has been for some time. It has existed much longer than the new, auto-magical Photos app which only recently arrived on the scene. There’s one easy way to check if your pics are set to upload automatically in Lollipop.

Here is a list of over 40 educational websites where you can get a free education According to www.webometrics.info, there are more than 17 000 universities, but getting a degree in many of them is quite costly. Many students around the world(and their families) get into big debt or have to work over sixty hours a week in order to afford an education. Two-thirds of the US college seniors who graduated in 2011 had student loan debt, with an average of over 27 000 USD per person. Reading those statistics I can’t stop thinking about those words from over 30 years ago: With mass education, it turned out that most people could be taught to read and write.

‘Army Of Half-Cloned Mice' Created In China From Artificial Sperm Researchers at the Shanghai Institute for Biological Sciences have successfully created artificial mouse sperm that are easily replicable and, when implanted in an egg, more reliably grow into healthy mice. The resulting 125 pups, 39 of which weren't born healthy, could make up a small army of mice to be used for research into genetic diseases. In 2012, the same researchers created artificial sperm for the first time, which they were able to implant in a natural egg. It only sort-of worked—just two percent of the embryos developed into healthy mice. Researchers make artificial sperm by knocking out the nucleus of an egg and replacing it with one set of DNA from the father of the offspring-to-be. The resulting gamete is a haploid, meaning that it only has one set of DNA, but it can still implant itself in a natural egg and work as natural sperm does.

Free-Ed.Net Are You Feeling Lost Here? This is understandable; Free-Ed.Net is truly an unique place. The confusion arises from the universal expectation that a place of education is designed to systematically transform an individual into a stereotypical "educated person" who is set upon the path to lifelong success and satisfaction. People arrive here expecting to be told exactly what they need to do in order conform to that image. Checklist and Links for High School Graduation (This article was last updated on 1/11/13. For continued updates, please sign up for my free monthly newsletter.) I've been compiling a list of links to free resources on the web that I use myself or that have been recommended. As I'm sure you all know, buying curriculum, especially at the high school level, can amount to hundreds of dollars per course. For many families, this can be cost-prohibitive, especially If you have more than one child in the upper grades. I try to mix and match as much as possible, carefully picking and choosing what I buy, and using free material if I can find it.

First impression - a gear in the diploma mill? They offer free course content and you pay other companies to take competency based exams. This is marketing for the other companies, but looks like a boon for students. by pag101 Jan 29
