GUITAR GODS Since the dawning of the Rock era there have been countless guitar-slingers that have inspired generations of wannabe guitarists. While there have been numerous apostles there are a select band who have been elevated to the status of Guitar God – Who are they and what makes them so special? The guitar is truly magical, it’s like no other instrument, both for the way we connect with and talk about our guitar heroes – often above all other virtuoso instrumentalists. These gods can make it sing, make it cry and with the electric guitar in particular, are able to create signature sounds by using their own unique combination of instruments, amplifiers and signal processors…but above all else they have a talent that make them so special. First there was Chuck Berry with his signature licks that influenced everyone. If you were to design a guitar hero from scratch, they would probably look something like Slash.

Energy and Calm: Brain Breaks and Focused-Attention Practices When presented with new material, standards, and complicated topics, we need to be focused and calm as we approach our assignments. We can use brain breaks and focused-attention practices to positively impact our emotional states and learning. They refocus our neural circuitry with either stimulating or quieting practices that generate increased activity in the prefrontal cortex, where problem solving and emotional regulation occur.

Using Old Tech (Not Edtech) to Teach Thinking Skills I've been trying to use Google Docs to good effect in my ninth grade history classroom. It's a critical tool in that it lets me see the students puzzle out answers to their questions (especially with a heavy reliance of the "see revisions" function). I've viewed classroom technology as the means to sharing knowledge, in addition to acquiring or manipulating it.

The Nostradamus Prophecies (National Geographic) –[Multimedia-English videos] Nostradamus, 2015 full documentary - Did Nostradamus predict the 9/11 attacks, the rise of Hitler, and the Challenger disaster some 500 years ago? Michel de Nostredame (depending on the source, 14 or 21 December 1503 – 2 July 1566), usually Latinised as Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous worldwide. He is best known for his book Les Propheties, the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted a following that, along with much of the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events. Most academic sources maintain that the associations made between world events and Nostradamus's quatrains are largely the result of misinterpretations or mistranslations (sometimes deliberate) or else are so tenuous as to render them useless as evidence of any genuine predictive power.
