The 27 best free VST plug-ins in the world today | Essential music software downloads The internet is now awash with free VST plug-ins - you’ll find instruments, effects and others that defy categorisation. However, while it’s great to have so many to choose from, this weight of numbers means that it’s difficult to work out what’s worth having and what you should steer clear of. Of course, you won’t lose out financially by downloading a dud or two, but to save you a lot of time, effort and potential disappointment, we’ve compiled a list of the best free VST (and Audio Units) plug-ins in the world today. Our shortlist was put together based on your nominations from 2010, when we ran our first poll, and 2012, when we put the word out that our list was being updated. Before we get down to business, we should also remind you that our sister magazine, Computer Music, features a slew of exclusive plug-ins on its cover disc every month, so if the software on this list doesn't satisfy you, try that as well.

List of Values The following list of values will help you develop a clearer sense of what's most important to you in life, as explained in the article Living Your Values. Simply print out this page, mark the values which most resonate with you, and then sort your list in order of priority. As you scan the values list below, you may find that while most values have little or no significance to you (and some may even seem negative to you), there are those values that just jump out and call to you, and you feel, "Yes, this value is part of me." This values list is merely a guide. It is lengthy and contains many synonyms but is certainly not exhaustive, so feel free to add unlisted values to your own list as well.

My Guide to iPad Deployment in School Almost two years ago to the day, I wrote a post, “The iPad: Why Teachers Should Care.” Flash forward to today, both of the schools I work at have purchased one iPad for each classroom. Although I’ve already mastered how to manage all the iDevices in my personal household, learning to manage iPads in an institutional environment involved a bit more learning due to the complexities of software licensing and the necessity to keep institutional accounts separate from personal ones. School Accounts You’ll Need: 1. A generic e-mail address. To repeat, you deposit gift cards into the VPP account and then redeem the download codes you receive through your school’s Apple ID. Although you buy 20 codes, you really only redeem one of the codes. We do not share any of the passwords for these accounts with the teachers at our school. Personal Accounts You Should and Shouldn’t Use Some schools do not allow teachers to install their own apps on the school iPads. Setting Up the iPads iPad Apps in Folders
iPad 105 – Workflow | How to save, work with multiple apps and share iPad Published on December 17th, 2012 | by Mark Anderson One of the greatest positives of the iPad as a learning tool in education are the many different apps that allow students to create amazing pieces of work which demonstrate their learning. Not only that, but the productivity tools that go with their day to day activities are vast. Whittling down recently our core apps for students, you’ll see there are tools for taking notes, creating professional documents, presentations, making books, creating screencasts, the whole lot. One of the negatives with the iPad though has been the problems associated with workflow. Some recent developments have really helped to alleviate many of these concerns. Firstly, with the advent of iOS6 came the option to be able to open files within apps in other apps. In fact, this new option has been massive. Above, you can see just some of the options I get upon choosing to open my Keynote presentation in another app. The list goes on… “Save early, save often.”
s Japanese Language Resources Guide It’s been about a month since we launched our “Japanese Resources Page” – on it we say things like “blah-didy-blah japanese resource this that etc” but we thought it would be fun for you guys if we just put our money where our mouths are. Not all the resources on the Japanese Resources page are free (some of them are, though, and they’re awesome), so we thought we’d give you some of the paid ones using cash from our very own Scrooge McDuck gold coin swimming pools (that way you don’t have to). We have a lot of cool resources to give away, too. How To Win (It’s Suspiciously Easy) On our Japanese Resources page, we have “recommend” buttons. The cool thing about these is that they’re linked to Facebook, meaning only real people can “recommend” something. We’re greedy fugus over here, though, so we want to bribe you to give some recommendations on this page (if you haven’t already). Make sure you have a Facebook account (big sorries if you don’t!)

An oasis in a desert of A-roads: Lorry driver documents his life on the highways and byways of the UK... with pictures of snack vans By Amanda Williams Published: 13:35 GMT, 18 August 2013 | Updated: 14:37 GMT, 18 August 2013 They are a familiar sight to most long haul drivers - an oasis of tea, bacon sandwiches and a friendly ear to tired motorists. Now, a photographer and part time artic lorry driver has documented the good, the bad, and the ugly of Britain's roadside snack bars. Phil Wills has been snapping the vans as he drives the motorways and A roads of the country, capturing the individuality and character of each. 'Franco's Oasis' snack van, A46, Worcestershire - just one of the many roadside snack vans photographer Phil Wills' has documented along his travels 'Avonmouth Quick Snacks' snack van, A403 road, Bristol. 'Mark's Munchies' snack van, A30 road, Cornwall. 'Gary's' snack van, A5036 road, Liverpool. Picturing each from the front, and treating them with the same reverence as is usually reserved for high end restaurants, Mr Wills documents the name (where available) and location of each.
