Online Flashcards with Spaced Repetition: FlashcardDB Cigarette cards Collection History The cigarette card series in this digital presentation comprise just the beginning of the Library's extensive, international collection of tobacco cards, which now numbers more than 125,000 individual items, including more than 3000 complete sets. While bibliophile George Arents (1875-1960) did not collect cigarette cards, he provided an endowment for the continued growth of his comprehensive collection on tobacco (whose processing and packaging had provided his fortune), which he had begun donating to NYPL in 1944. Background Cigarette or tobacco cards began in the mid-19th century as premiums, enclosed in product packaging. While most cards were produced by conventional offset or other economical commercial printing processes, a few series were issued as original gelatin silver photographs or printed on silk or linen fabric; others were created as puzzles or paper toy cut-outs.

TapeWrite. Créer un blog audio Tapewrite est un service en ligne qui permet de créer une sorte de blog audio dans lequel les articles sont des genres de podcasts qui peuvent être illustrés. Difficile de présenter le concept de Tapewrite. Il me fait penser à un service type Medium mais pour le son. Même s’il n’a pas été conçu spécifiquement pour cela, Tapewrite peut être d’une grande utilité dans un contexte de classe inversée. Après vous être inscrit, Tapewrite vous permet de personnaliser une page publique dans laquelle vous allez publier vos enregistrements. Pour cela rien de plus simple, il suffit de donner un titre et une description à votre article. La particularité et véritable valeur ajoutée de Tapewrite, c’est la possibilité ensuite d’ajouter des « cartes » ou diapositives à l’endroit où vous le souhaitez dans votre enregistrement. Ces diapositives qui viennent appuyer votre son peuvent être partagées d’un clic sur les réseaux sociaux, elles peuvent être commentées ou archivées. Sur le même thème

Best Music to Learn English | EASY ENGLISH ARTICLES Here are my top 5 music artists that English students should listen to. They have been chosen because they have clear pronunciation and great vocabulary (by great I mean interesting and useful- none of this street ganksta talk or old-fashioned nonsense that people just don’t say in real life). 1) George Ezra George Ezra is a singer from Hertford England. He sings folk-rock music and his album “Wanted on Voyage” was the third biggest selling album in the UK last year. Check out his song Listen to the Man on Youtube. 2) Bruno Mars Bruno Mars is an American singer who was born in Hawaii. Check out the songs: “Just the way you are” “The Lazy Song” and “Locked out of Heaven” on youtube. 3) Of Monsters and Men Of Monsters and Men is a pop-folk-indi band from Iceland. Have a look at their songs on youtube here. 4) Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran is British singer-song writer who plays the guitar.
