10 Incredible Chemical Reaction GIFs Explained We encounter thousands of chemical reactions every day: plants use them in photosynthesis, metals rust over time, and combustion reactions provide us with heat and light, among thousands of other daily uses. Chemical reactions occur when reactants transform into new substances, called products, through creating and breaking bonds between atoms. Sometimes the process creates some pretty wild effects. 1) Disintegration (Mercury Reacts with Aluminum) Image credit: Theodore Gray via Youtube When aluminum rusts, it creates a protective oxide layer that prevents the aluminum atoms underneath from further rusting. 2) Pharaoh's Serpent (Mercury (II) Thiocyanate Reacts with Oxygen) Image credit: tenkowal via Youtube The reaction depicted above, nicknamed the "Pharoah's Serpent," actually use to be a common classroom demonstration. 3) Explosive Gummi Bear (Heated Potassium Chlorate Reacts with a Gummi Bear) Image credit: ebaum via Image credit: DizzyCtube via Youtube

An Atlas of Cyberspaces This is an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other emerging Cyberspaces. These maps of Cyberspaces - cybermaps - help us visualise and comprehend the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen, in the wires of the global communications networks and vast online information resources. The cybermaps, like maps of the real-world, help us navigate the new information landscapes, as well being objects of aesthetic interest. They have been created by 'cyber-explorers' of many different disciplines, and from all corners of the world. Some of the maps you will see in the Atlas of Cyberspaces will appear familiar, using the cartographic conventions of real-world maps, however, many of the maps are much more abstract representations of electronic spaces, using new metrics and grids.

Att lyckas anpassa för alla! Om arbetet med extra anpassningar på Dammhagskolan 2016 gjorde Skolinspektionen med stöd av SPSM en kvalitetsgranskning av skolors arbete med extra anpassningar Syftet med granskning var att bedöma om elever som har behov av extra anpassningar fick det. Dammhagskolan var en av de 15 skolor, spridda över landet, som granskades. Efter granskningen var vi en av tre skolor som lyckades så väl i arbetet att Skolinspektionen inte hade några anmärkningar. SPSM har tittat närmre på arbetet på de tre skolorna och utarbetat ett stödmaterial kring extra anpassningar som kom ut nu i veckan. Jag heter Stina Hyltmark och är förstelärare och speciallärare på Dammhagskolan. Dammhagskolans arbete med extra anpassningar vilar på fyra ben Ledning och stimulans. 1. Grunden för att lyckas väl i att möta elevernas behov av stöd genom extra anpassningar ligger i att göra ordinarie undervisning tillgänglig för så många elever som möjligt. 2. 3. 4. Arbetsgång: Arbete med extra anpassningar är ett samarbete!

ARKive - Discover the world's most endangered species Wildscreen's Arkive project was launched in 2003 and grew to become the world's biggest encyclopaedia of life on Earth. With the help of over 7,000 of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers and photographers, conservationists and scientists, featured multi-media fact-files for more than 16,000 endangered species. Freely accessible to everyone, over half a million people every month, from over 200 countries, used Arkive to learn and discover the wonders of the natural world. Since 2013 Wildscreen was unable to raise sufficient funds from trusts, foundations, corporates and individual donors to support the year-round costs of keeping Arkive online. Therefore, the charity had been using its reserves to keep the project online and was unable to fund any dedicated staff to maintain Arkive, let alone future-proof it, for over half a decade. Despite appeals for support, just 85 of our 5.6 million users in 2018 made a donation.
