Posters This poster combines a visualization of ground motion resulting from the February 21, 2008 M 6.0 earthquake that occurred near Wells, NV, with the image of a faucet to illustrate a classic Earth science functional analogy: "Seismic waves radiate outward from an earthquake's epicenter like ripples on water". For students this discrepant image attracts attention and links the unfamiliar concept of the spreading out of seismic waves (the target) to a similar but more familiar scenario of ripples on water radiating outwards in all directions after a droplet or pebble falls onto it (the analog). Additionally the material is made approachable by using a clean artistic design, ideas students are likely to have experienced, and a prominent URL where students to learn more. When presented at the beginning of seismic waves instruction, this poster and it's question (Earthquakes... like ripples on water?) becomes the catalyst for student-generated questions, inquiry, and learning.

10 Dumbest Google Maps Fails Image via Googlesystem Google is as essential and ubiquitous in our lives today as mammoths were to our early ancestors. Hopefully our childrens childrens children will not find Google employees frozen in the Siberian ice. If they do, however, it will be because Google Maps led them there on the way to Rio.

Too Many Markers! - API Google Карт Luke Mahe and Chris Broadfoot, Google Geo APIs TeamDecember 2010 Introduction Some applications are required to display a large number of locations or markers.
