Organize and Decorate Everything — Organize Your Life and Decorate Your World
Here is another garland I made for Emilee’s birthday and to decorate her bedroom door. This is another great way to give money as a gift. To make the Dollar Bow Garland you can make as many bows as you like and in any denomination. My folding skills aren’t amazing so I decided on making a simple bow. Fold one end of the bill toward the center, then the other end. Accordion fold the center of the bill a bit then smush it together. Cut a length of bakers twine and wrap it around the center of the bill a few times to secure it. Cut bakers twine for the length of the banner. Emilee loved it! I have one more garland I made for her birthday. Check out these posts if you missed fun ways to give money to teens:Straw GarlandBirthday Money Balloons Do you know the perfect birthday gift for your teen? I started with 50 $1 bills and 18 straws. I measured and cut the straws in half. Then I used a needle to pull the bakers twine through each straw. This is so exciting! Happy Sweet 16 Emilee!!!

The Sand Castle After giving our first public presentation on earthbag building, Steve and Carol approached us and invited us to the remote island of Rum Cay to teach them how to build their sand castle dream home with - well, sand! Steve had designed a six-sided, 24-foot (7.2 meter) wide structure. The first floor was to be built using earthbags upon which a second story, framed house would be constructed and covered with a hip-style roof. The earthbag walls are entirely load-bearing (no posts and beam) built surrounding an internal concrete block cistern designed to collect precious rainwater from the roof. Always game for adventure and the challenge of a new earthbag building experience, we immediately accepted their offer. We arrived with snorkel gear instead of homemade bag stands and tampers, but soon discovered that the local dump and an abandoned hurricane ravaged dive club provided the materials we would need to construct all of our own site-built tools.

Simplicité volontaire Un article de Ékopédia, l'encyclopédie pratique. La simplicité volontaire (ou sobriété heureuse) est un mode de vie consistant à réduire volontairement sa consommation par la maîtrise des besoins. On parle aussi parfois de frugalité. Origine La simplicité volontaire est une attitude qui existe depuis des millénaires, même si le terme est très récent. Aujourd'hui, ce qui est devenu petit à petit un mouvement est représenté, entre autres, par les Compagnons de Saint François ou encore les Communautés de l’Arche de Lanza del Vasto, inspiré par Gandhi, lui-même inspiré par Thoreau et Ruskin. Premiers emplois de l'expression En 1936, l'on trouve pour la première fois l'expression "simplicité volontaire" (simple living) dans un article de Richard Gregg, un disciple de Gandhi, qui reprend les idées principales de celui-ci. L'expression "simplicité volontaire" est connue depuis le livre du même nom publié en 1981 par Duane Elgin[1]. Principes L'un de ces spécialistes, Mark A. Voir aussi Références

Frugal Kiwi — Live Green. Spend Less. Le collectif Adret - Adretclimat.org Le collectif Adret 2011 : (en pays montagneux, versant ensoleillé de la vallée) est le nom choisi jadis, à l’époque du Club de Rome, par notre petit groupe, convaincu que les limitations imposées par l’épuisement des ressources naturelles de notre planète pouvaient avoir leur côté ensoleillé. En 1977, Adret publiait (Seuil). Puis, au moment des mouvements sociaux de 1995, sous le titre (Minuit), un recueil de témoignages de ceux qui, refusant les aspects inégalitaires et déshumanisants de notre société, inventaient au quotidien des solutions alternatives. Nouvelle époque, nouvelle urgence : partiellement rajeuni, notre collectif se reconstitue, mû par le désir de réfléchir et de réagir ensemble à la question du changement climatique et publie en 2007 (Cerf).

Challenging the Presentation Paradigm with the 1/1/5 Rule A measure of how bad presentations in academia can be is the sheer number of tips and strategies we’ve suggested on ProfHacker, in a recurring series called Challenging the Presentation Paradigm. One of these techniques I’ve used in my classes for several years is the Pecha Kucha format. With 20 slides at 20 seconds per slide, a Pecha Kucha is, as Jason writes, necessarily “SHORT, INFORMAL, and CREATIVE.” However, as I’ve found out the hard way, a Pecha Kucha format does not necessarily mean students will avoid text-heavy slides, one of the major causes of DBP (Death By PowerPoint). That’s why I’ve begun implementing what I call the 1/1/5 rule for all student presentations. In addition to the time constraint of the Pecha Kucha, your presentation must also follow the 1/1/5 rule. The 1/1/5 rule is just a small tweak, but it has made all the difference. Have you tried similar techniques in your classrooms? Return to Top
