100 Things Personality Test - VisualDNA VisualDNA brings a new layer of information to the world of technology that will help bring it closer to the people who use it – making it more enjoyable and relevant. Technology provides businesses with a surfeit of DATA – what and when. However it provides very little in the way of UNDERSTANDING – who did things, and why they did them. We see this effect in all areas of business from marketing to financial services. DIY Leather Coasters These leather coasters are inspired by the geometric patterns of Islamic tile design. Three beautiful traditional tessellating patterns have been converted to easily followed paper patterns for you. The coasters are double sided and can be used individually for drinks or in a group as a lovely trivet. A quick and easy project, they make a great hostess or housewarming gift! -Natalie
The Best Sites To Practice Speaking English This was one of the trickiest “The Best…” list for me to compile. As I was going through my favorites, and all of the great suggestions others contributed, I concluded that it might work best to really create two lists. The first list — this one — will highlight sites that actually have students recording their own voices in a number of different ways and post their speaking assignments online. The second list, which I’ll publish later this month and will include a number of the sites that readers suggested, will focus on sites where students have to listen to spoken examples for developing better pronunciation skills. That next list will be called “The Best Sites For Learning English Pronunciation.” It’s sort of an artificial division, I know, and obviously in teaching and learning a second language speaking and listening are intertwined.

DIY Ombre Plum Blossoms from PAPER TO PETAL Our team has been obsessing over our copy of Rebecca Thuss and Patrick Farrell’s new book, Paper to Petal. Not only is it chock-full of simple and easy ways to create paper flowers (so many of which are great for crafters of all ages) but it’s also brimming with incredible ideas that are slightly more complicated that yield such incredible results. My favorite example is this stunning Ombre Plum Blossoms project from the book that Rebecca and Patrick were kind enough to share with us today. It’s one of 75 projects in the book and would be perfect for setting a fall tabletop without having to clean up berries and pods after dinner.
Notable Quotes Notable Quotes "As a mentor, I cook with student & see a zillion benefits. But we "measure" flour, not things that go bump in PR fog" How to Determine If A Controversial Statement Is Scientifically True A small typo: "...Dr. Plait warned that [t]here are a few things to watch out for...". Great article overall, though I wonder if it advocates leaning on authority figures a bit too much. I think it's fairly obvious that the evidence itself is more important than whoever presents it, but I wish this were stated more explicitly. It can be next to impossible for laypeople to determine the difference between "legitimate" experts and their counterparts (and in some fields "legitimacy" may be ill-defined to the point of meaninglessness, and even experts aren't *always* right).
