Facts About Dihydrogen Monoxide Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol. For more detailed information, including precautions, disposal procedures and storage requirements, refer to one of the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) available for DHMO:
Getting past the easy reach As I’ve been working on writing my book and hitting these mental milestones (40,000 words felt like a lot, then it felt like a lot to rework my outline, then it felt like I’d hit a mountaintop at 55,000 words and counting), I’ve been thinking a lot about the way we talk about and promote books to readers. Then in today’s Shelf Awareness, I saw this about the “book grapevine.” Click through and read it because it isn’t long. In short, the book gets great promotion on the ground level, then it gets promotion from a big-name person in the field or industry, that word gets to a reader who then suggests the book to, in this case, a book seller (and you can swap book seller for librarian or teacher or any other reader advocate), who then reads the book and they themselves do ground-level promotion of the title, too. It gets the word about a particular book out there and does so fast.

Free Book: Free Online Clipart Sourcebook Announcing the Free Clip Art Sourcebook: links to thousands of categorized free images, all in one place! When I was a magazine art director about 100 years ago, we didn’t have electronic free clip art. That might seem incomprehensible to younger people, but we had to jump through all kinds of hoops just to get images onto the pages of a magazine. It involved X-Acto knives and sticky wax, which always seemed to be stuck to parts of me, instead of just to the back of the clip art.
Index of Learning Styles The Index of Learning Styles is an on-line survey instrument used to assess preferences on four dimensions (active/reflective, sensing/intuitive, visual/verbal, and sequential/global) of a learning style model formulated by Richard M. Felder and Linda K. Silverman. Readers’ Advisory with Style: KLA 2013 Presentation I presented with Scott Rader from Hays Public Library at the Kansas Library Association this week. Our program was Readers’ Advisory with Style. We shared ways that we promote books in our libraries through passive RA materials like displays or graphics and through social media. Scott also discussed fanmixes for YA novels.
Tools for the Reading Classroom Last week I made my third trip to Nebraska for the Nebraska State Reading Conference. It was so much fun meeting new teachers and sharing plenty of my favorites technology tools for reading. You might have seen the picture of the tiny plane that took me to Kearney, NE in the graphic of this post. One of my sessions last week include 15 of my favorite technology tools for the reading classroom. When presenting a list like this to teachers I try to give lots of classroom examples and time to try out some of the tools I picked out to share.

Caffè sospeso - Wikipedia History One 2010 account claims the tradition was over 100 years old, but declined during the postwar economic boom, so that it is mainly observed around Christmas time. A 2008 article reported the tradition was obsolescent, the reporter having visited three bars where it had not been observed for at least 15 years.
