A Young Mad Scientist's First Alphabet Blocks | Xylocopa

At Xylocopa, we know that the key to a successful education is to begin learning at a young age. Like many of you, we are concerned about the state of science education in the public school system, especially in the lower grades. Specifically, we have noticed that there is absolutely no training in the K-6 grades that prepares students to become mad scientists. In this competitive 21st-century world, the need for mad scientists will only increase, but the lack of basic education in primary school leaves us concerned that there will be no future students capable of leading in this illustrious field.

StickyScreen — jackcheng.com

I have a habit of putting sticky notes on the edge of my monitor. Usually these notes consist of mantras I come up with based on something I’ve learned or read recently. I have to change it up about once a week because if I get too used to seeing it, I start ignoring it.Meet StickyScreenMy new mini-project takes the note off the edge of your monitor and puts it smack dab in the middle. The idea is to set StickyScreen as your homepage so that your ‘note to self’ shows up whenever you open a new tab or browser window.

Living With Music: Roger Bennett and Josh Kun - Paper Cuts Blog - NYTimes.com

Roger Bennett and Josh Kun are the authors of “And You Shall Know Us by the Trail of Our Vinyl: The Jewish Past as Told by the Records We Have Loved and Lost.”Our book is the product of five years of obsessively collecting vinyl from across the country — a work of passion that took over our lives. Believe it or not, after tracking down thousands of lost albums and chasing down the performers who once recorded them (now mostly in their 80s and 90s), we still can’t quit the music. Below are some of our favorites that dominate our iPods. Consider it a Chanukah top 12.

MONOTONE – WP Theme

MONOTONE - WP Theme

Monotone is a simple yet dynamic theme for photo-blogging. The layout is clean and non-intrusive, but the way it handles images makes each entry unique (and requires no intervention to do so).You can now use it on self-hosted blogs too (download here).Monotone takes the first image attached to a post and samples colors from it for use in the surrounding layout.Each post needs to contain one image, and optionally, any text you want. The theme does the rest, pulling colors out of and resizing the images for use in the design.You can use the visual or the HTML editor in wordpress to input your image and supporting text.Enjoy Monotone, and please, let us know what you think!Monotone was a collaboration between eight6 and Automattic.

Quirky serifs aside, Georgia fonts win on Web – International Herald Tribune

Quirky serifs aside, Georgia fonts win on Web - International Herald Tribune

Log on to The New York Times’s Web site, and you’ll see it there. Just as you’ll spot it on the Web sites of London’s Frieze Art Fair, the architecture magazine Metropolis, the artist Damien Hirst, and on blog, after blog, after blog.All of these Web sites use the same typeface – Georgia. Typefaces slip in and out of fashion like every other area of design, but right now Georgia is the most fashionable one on the Internet. “A few designers have mentioned that there seems to be a ‘Georgia revival’ going on,” says Matthew Carter, the British-born, Boston-based designer who developed Georgia for Microsoft in 1996. “It seems a bit young to have died and been revived already.”

Create an Amazon Books Widget with jQuery and XML – NETTUTS

Create an Amazon Books Widget with jQuery and XML - NETTUTS

It makes sense to forgo database tables and server-side code when you need to store a limited amount of non-sensitive data. Accessing this data can be a snap with jQuery because the library was built to traverse XML documents with ease. With some custom JavaScript and jQuery magic you can create some interesting widgets. A good way to demonstrate this functionality is by building a browsable Amazon.com books widget.
