The Vault, the volcano & the electric vehicle
By Yanique on June 10th, 2011
I have some very interesting news to report this week! Doing research and wishing that you could scour the archives of the FBI for primary sources? Now you can! The FBI launched The Vault – their new electronic reading room giving you access to more than 3,000 scanned documents. Although I am afraid to know what’s hidden in The Vault, the investigator in me wants to take a look!
South central Chile recently experienced the eruption of a volcano last Saturday. The Wall Street Journal posted intense images that will definitely leave you in awe…click here to view the photos.
We all know “you are what you read,” but are you also what you write? Laura Miller of Salon.com talks about bad people who write great books. We all know that no one is perfect, and as perfect as we think our favorite authors write, they aren’t either.
One of our Minds (Tyler Reed) came across an interesting article on WashingtonPost.com about seven things in education that are ignored. The article was written by educator Anthony Cody, who taught science for 18 years in inner-city Oakland. Some of his points included – 1) Children do not learn well when they are under stress and 2) It takes time to learn to be an excellent teacher. Check out what else Mr. Cody had to say here.
Could you ride in a car with no driver? Apparently France is testing out a fleet of electric cars. Passengers in La Rochelle can now simply press a button at one of the five stations, and the next available car shows up in minutes. They can then input their destination, and the car – sans driver – takes them where they need to go! I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m a little scared behind the wheel as it is.
Do you have something that we should have in our feeds? Leave us a comment about an article you want to share!
