Free Language Lessons, Learning Tips and Much More! 10 Ways to Have Waaaaay More Fun Studying Foreign Languages 1.) Cry, Laugh and Compete with Italians Through Television I agree with the typical advice to watch movies or shows from that country, but I want to be more specific. In order to find some REALLY fun foreign entertainment, watch their game shows, their reality television shows, their saccharine romance dramas, and shows from America like CSI or Supernatural that are dubbed in that language. If you’re learning Italian, a few of examples could be:

Cute Notebook just a notebook but it's all hopped up on cuteness. simple fun notebooks from wal-mart....with many many ribbons tied to the side. that's it. Handmade Books The last couple weeks I have been learning how to make books as part of my internship at the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory. One of the most basic sewn bookbinding structures is called Japanese Stab Binding. It involves lining up the pages and covers of the soon-to-be book, making a series of holes, and sewing along the edge of the stack. These books are all made using scraps of leftover and recycled paper. The covers include handmade papers, maps from an old atlas, and an old field guide for identifying trees. Open Education and Bio380 lecture on Neanderthals This academic year I have set myself the goal of making all my lecture available for all, in the public domain, via YouTube and maybe also Slideshare. The technical side of doing this is fairly straightforward (capture a screen movie via QuickTime), but the major hassle is ensuring and documenting permissions for all images. In my first attempt, I quickly realised that putting this information on the same slides as the images led to cluttered chaos, so I have piled them all up at the end of the talk. It is unclear to me what the rules are about using material from published papers, but cannot see how authors would not want students to know about their work.

Researchers Create the World's First Fully Synthetic, Self-Repli If figuring out how to quickly sequence genomes was but the first small step for genetics, Craig Venter has gone ahead and made a giant leap for the discipline. The J. Craig Venter Institute announced today that it has created the world's first synthetic cell, boasting a completely synthetic chromosome produced by a machine. "This is the first self-replicating species we've had on the planet whose parent is a computer," Venter said in a press conference. The biological breakthrough could have myriad applications, as it essentially opens the door to engineered biology that is completely manipulated by laboratory scientists.
