List of emoticons A simple smiley This is a list of notable and commonly used emoticons or textual portrayals of a writer's mood or facial expression in the form of icons. The Western use of emoticons is quite different from Eastern usage, and Internet forums, such as 2channel, typically show expressions in their own ways. In recent times, graphic representations, both static and animated, have taken the place of traditional emoticons in the form of icons. Emoticons can generally be divided into two groups: Western or Horizontal (mainly from America and Europe), and Eastern or Vertical (mainly from east Asia). The most common explanation for these differences is how the different cultures value different parts of the face, i.e. eyes often play a bigger part in figuring out mood in the East while the West puts the eyes as equal to the rest of the face.

I discovered it online last fall while I was exploring information on how the brain learns. This is the first video I saw on the topic: You may notice in the video that the instructor (Coach B from WBT) keeps the students totally engaged, and uses many of the important brain based learning strategies: talking, using emotions, visuals, movement, teaching chunks of information, giving immediate feedback.

Does your web feel faster today? Thank the Global Internet Speedup Starting today, a simple but effective switch has been flipped on DNS servers across the world that should significantly decrease your page load times and increase your download speeds across the web. This change is one of the first steps of the Global Internet Speedup, an initiative spearheaded by the likes of OpenDNS, Google, and content delivery networks with the goal of — you guessed it — speeding up the web. At the moment CDNs deliver content based on the location of your DNS server, which more often than not is geographically distant from your actual computer. The speed-up is beautifully elegant in its implementation: Basically, when your browser makes a DNS request, the DNS server will now forward the first three octets (123.45.67) of your IP address to the target web service.
