Step 1: Choose theme Decide on a theme, such as the ocean, the rainforest, the solar system, or a favorite scene from a book. Make a list of all the elements to include and any important action in the scene you want to depict. Step 2: Decorate box Turn a cardboard box, like a shoebox, on its side. Paint the colors of the background landscape, including the sea, sky, and ground, or glue construction paper to the inside. Decorate the top and both sides. Let it dry thoroughly. Step 3: Add figurines Gather your miniature figurines, or cut out figures from construction paper or cardboard painted to look like the people, objects, or animals in your scene. Tip Keep proper scale in mind for realism. The miniature standard is 1 foot to 1 inch. Step 4: Glue figurines Work from the back of the box to the front, placing your figures inside. Glue them in place when you find the layout you like. Step 5: Add details Consider hanging objects from the top of the box, such as birds, or fish in an ocean scene, using dental floss or sewing thread and clear tape. Those extra details will bring life to your display and wow your classmates! Did You Know? The 2006 film Night at the Museum recreated many of the real-life, massive dioramas of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

In this popular American book from the 1920s, "self-help" author Elsie Lincoln Benedict makes pseudo-scientific claims of Human Analysis, proposing that all humans fit into specific five sub-types. Supposedly based on evolutionary theory, it is claimed that distinctive traits can be foretold through analysis of outward appearance. While not considered to be a serious work by the scientific community, "How To Analyze People On Sight" makes for an entertaining read. . ► Follow Us On TWITTER: https://www.twitter.com/GAudioBooks ► Friend Us On FACEBOOK: http://www.Facebook.com/GreatestAudioBooks ► For FREE SPECIAL AUDIOBOOK OFFERS & MORE: http://www.GreatestAudioBooks.com ► SUBSCRIBE to Greatest Audio Books: http://www.youtube.com/GreatestAudioBooks ► BUY T-SHIRTS & MORE: http://bit.ly/1akteBP ► Visit our WEBSITE: http://www.GreatestAudioBooks.com READ along by clicking (CC) for Caption Transcript LISTEN to the entire book for free!

How to Draw a Maze
Watch more How to Draw for Beginners videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/206922-How-to-Draw-a-Maze Drawing mazes is a great, creative activity for a rainy day — or anytime you want a fun break in your daily routine. Step 1: Draw a grid Use a pencil and ruler to draw a large square or rectangle on plain paper. Mark dots at the edges at equal intervals. Draw lines to connect the dots to create a grid. Make light lines so you can easily erase them later. Tip On graph paper, draw a square or rectangle to define the boundaries of your maze. Step 2: Create the entry and exit points Choose two spots along the outer edges for the start and finish. Erase a break in the lines at these points to create an entry and exit for your maze. Step 3: Draw a path from entry to exit Draw a meandering path leading from the entry to the exit. Include lots of twists and turns. Step 4: Create false paths Create false paths branching from the main path. Include dead ends and paths that circle back on themselves. Step 5: Draw the maze walls Use the pen to trace over all line segments in the grid that do not have a path going through them. These are your maze walls. Step 6: Erase the pencil Erase all other pencil lines. You will be left with your finished maze. Step 7: Make copies Make photocopies of your maze for your family and friends to solve. Keep your original clean so you can use it again. Did You Know? Did you know? Mazes have been used since the early twentieth century to study learning and memory in rats.

"EL ENIGMA ESTEREOPLAST" (1998) (Catalan original version with Spanish and English subtitles) Realización y Edición: Olivia Rueda y Antonio Ribelles / Guión: Antonio Ribelles / Narrador: Santi Pons / Montaje musical: Xavier Buixader y Manel Valls / Postproducción audio: Joan Pineda, Cisco Prades, Joan Puig y Joan Sirvent / Operación Rescate: Alejandro Mediavilla y Tony Macousqui / Con la intervención de Tomás Fanjul, Foll, José Gracia, Merce Herrero, Miguel Ángel López, Josep María Magrià, Juan Martínez, Joan Navarro, Francisco Nieto, Juan Nieto, Josep Lluís Pampols, Ricardo Ribelles, Joan Carles Romeu, Saina y Jaume Vila "El Enigma Estereoplast" es un documental sobre figuritas de plástico, muñecos articulados y pioneros del merchandising. Realizado durante los meses de noviembre de 1996 a marzo de 1997 por dos sufridos trabajadores de la televisión autonómica catalana (en sus horas libres y sin cobrar ni un céntimo por la faena), este documental fue emitido originalmente en el programa cultural "Strómboli" del Canal 33 de Televisió de Catalunya en dos entregas de media hora tituladas "L´Enigma Estereoplast" (18-3-97) y "El Senyor del Estereoplàstics" (25-3-97). Y reemitido, también en el Canal 33, en julio del año siguiente, en una versión corregida y aumentada de 73 minutos. A pesar de su éxito de audiencia y la conmoción que provocó en muchos espectadores de la época, ambas versiones de "L´Enigma Estereoplast" desaparecerían durante los siguientes 20 años en las mazmorras del siniestro Departamento de Documentación de la Televisió de Catalunya. El hecho de que el documental ni siquiera aparezca referenciado en su servicio de programación online a la carta, así como diversos testimonios asegurando que TV3 negaba incluso haberlo emitido, contribuyeron a alimentar la leyenda de que "L´Enigma Estereoplast" no era mas que un espejismo colectivo... hasta que por fin, en mayo de 2012, un par de copias en VHS de la primera versión de 60 minutos comenzaron a circular en Youtube. Una vez descartada toda posibilidad de que TV3 Televisió de Catalunya nos permitiera acceder a su copia en betacam analógico de la versión íntegra de 73 minutos, La Casa Fantasma ha logrado resucitar este documental a partir del máster original editado en una cinta betacam digital, sobre el cual se han efectuado unos discretos retoques y adendas, siguiendo las instrucciones del malogrado Antonio Ribelles, guionista y co-realizador de este insólito "Enigma Estereoplast" que tenemos el placer de estrenar finalmente restaurado y liberado, con subtítulos en inglés y castellano. Que ustedes lo disfruten. (Postdata dirigida a todos los colegas que habéis estado saqueando este documental durante las últimas dos décadas: la próxima vez que os venga de gusto piratear el contenido, tomaos la molestia de indicar la procedencia, a ser posible y si no es mucho pedir.

TEDxBristol 2011 took place on Thursday 8th September 2011, at the MSHED Museum, in Bristol, South West England. Find more of our talks, the videos, the audio and the TEDxBristol experience, online at: http://www.tedxbristol.com About the speaker: Philanthropist and serial entrepreneur Tony Bury grew up in an area which borders some of Southern Africa's most beautiful National Parks. As a result, Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book, the story of Mowgli and the lessons he learnt from his animal mentors, has stayed with him throughout his life. He has spent the past three decades founding and running start up companies across the world. These include amongst others AK Group (Qatar), AK Trading (Qatar), Nefco (Qatar), Kestrel (Australia), Tomotechnology (Canada), Contax (UAE) and its various related businesses. Finding himself deeply moved by an encounter with the author CK Prahalad in 2005, Tony vowed to use his entrepreneurial flair to 'give something back.' Prahalad's book, 'The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid', challenges companies to revolutionize the way they do business in developing countries and advises on how to harness entrepreneurial potential. With a grandfather who was a consulting engineer on the first iron and steel plants in India, South Africa and Canada, Tony believes that giving communities, especially in developing countries, the tools and know-how to unlock their potential is paramount to the development of a family unit, society and ultimately an economy. Remembering his Zimbabwean roots, the Mowgli story and the mentors who have shaped his life and enabled him to grow as a businessman and an individual, Tony was inspired and founded The Mowgli Foundation in 2008. The Mowgli Foundation invests in mentors and entrepreneurs to make a difference.

The Truth About George Washington
George Washington was unanimously elected as the first president of the United States of America after winning the American Revolutionary War as the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army. Washington was first called "Father of his Country" three years after the beginning of the Revolutionary War – a status he earned not only for his military accomplishments, but also because of the numerous virtues he was perceived to possess as a human being. But within Washington's impeccable character, one quality stood out the most – a unique immunity to the corrupting effects of power, which stemmed from his selfless nature. "I often say of George Washington that he was one of the few in the whole history of the world who was not carried away by power," stated Robert Frost, "America's great poet-philosopher." After overthrowing the tyranny of the British Empire, Americans were unwilling to trust anyone with the power of a central government, yet in George Washington they saw a man who had transcended human fallibility. "Had he lived in the days of idolatry," the Pennsylvania Journal noted in 1777, Washington would have been "worshipped as a god." How could such a man ever abuse his power, let alone become a tyrant? Furthermore, if men like Washington exist and can be elected into power, perhaps the United States government would never follow in the footsteps of the hated British Empire. Does the mortal George Washington live up to his immortal legend? What is the Truth About George Washington?

Programming is like math, right
Many people naively assume that “Programming is like Math,” and expect magically higher grades from students who’ve taken a class in Java, Scratch, or Python. Unfortunately, this assumption is far from accurate. In a world of high-stakes testing, we can no longer pretend the word “function” means the same thing to algebra teachers and programmers. If we truly wish to help students in algebra, we need to re-think the foundations of what programming we teach. On Monday, February 29 at 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET Emmanuel Schanzer explored the literature and current research in the field of algebra education and programming. He also introduced Bootstrap, a standards-based curriculum that teaches students to program their own video games using purely algebraic and geometric concepts. Find out how teachers, college students and professionals are getting involved with Bootstrap, to bring functional programming to middle and high school students around the country.

The Atlantic Slave Trade: Crash Course World History #24
In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color. Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life? In a desperate attempt at comic relief, Boba Fett makes an appearance.

2018 Ideas Conference - Full Event
For the past 15 years, the Center for American Progress has served as a creative engine for introducing bold solutions that advance progressive values on nearly every possible front. In the past year alone, we have defended the Affordable Care Act; outlined policies to create workplaces that support women and families; discussed the impact of race across a wide range of issue areas; and helped drive opposition to President Donald Trump’s tax plan. At CAP, we believe that ideas are the heart of all progressive change, but we also know that ideas aren’t enough. It takes grassroots advocacy and real leadership supporting those ideas to create true progressive change. As we celebrate our 15th year of big ideas, CAP is bringing together elected officials, policy experts, cultural influencers, and grassroots activists at the 2018 CAP Ideas Conference, where we will explore and unveil new ideas that can make America a place for every single one of us to thrive.

Figures of Speech offers a brief and insightful history of speaking up and facing the consequences.

Naudsonce by H. Beam Piper
Naudsonce? What does THAT mean? Well, to find out you will need to listen to this story where Piper's unique mind explores what we mean by 'communication' and how it happens. The joint Space Navy-Colonial Office expedition was looking for new planets suitable for colonization; they had been out, now, for four years, which was close to maximum for an exploring expedition. They had entered eleven systems, and made landings on eight planets. Three had been reasonably close to Terra-type but were all disqualified by terrible animals or warlike inhabitants. Now, finally here was an ideal world; their last chance before returning in disgrace. Now the only thing was to get an agreement from the local king or whatever to the colonization. Easy, right? Well first, you've got to talk to them ...... and there the trouble starts.

The Status Civilization by Robert Sheckley
"ALL OF YOU ARE CRIMINALS THEREFORE MANKIND HAS REJECTED YOU, AND YOU HAVE BEEN SENT TO A WORLD WHERE YOUR OWN SORT IS KING. HERE YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN RULES, AND DIE BY THEM ..." Will Barrent awakes without memories just before being deposited on Omega, a planet for criminals where the average life expectancy is 3 years. He’s listed as a murderer and released into the illicit society as a “peon” the lowest class imaginable. A mysterious girl gives him a weapon that starts him on his path to status, a path that requires constant brutality. But it must be borne if our hero is to discover the reason for his imprisonment; A reason that pits him against himself, and involves the sardonically similar but devoutly different creeds of Omega and Earth.

For two hundred years his people had been waiting for the chance to fight the mighty Gern Empire ... with bows and arrows against blasters and bombs!

A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs | Full Audiobook | Subtitles
A Princess of Mars (version 2) Edgar Rice BURROUGHS John Carter, an American Civil War veteran, goes prospecting in Arizona and, when set upon by Indians, is mysteriously transported to Mars, called "Barsoom" by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has great strength on this planet, due to its lesser gravity. Carter soon falls in among the Tharks, a nomadic tribe of the planet's warlike, four-armed, green inhabitants. Thanks to his strength and combat abilities he rises in position in the tribe and earns the respect eventually the friendship of Tars Tarkas, one of the Thark chiefs. The Tharks subsequently capture Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, a member of the humanoid red Martian race. The red Martians inhabit a loose network of city states and control the desert planet's canals, along which its agriculture is concentrated. Carter rescues her from the green men to return her to her people. (Summary from Wikipedia) Genre(s): Action & Adventure Fiction, Science Fiction
The History of Mr. Polly Audiobook by H. G. Wells | Audiobook with subtitles
A funny and touching account of the imaginative Mr. Polly who, bored and trapped in his conventional life, makes a U-turn –- and changes everything. H.G. Wells’ early life as the son of a semi-insolvent shopkeeper and as a draper’s apprentice fueled his novels of the lower middle class: The Wheels of Chance (1896), Kipps (1905), and The History of Mr. Polly (1910). These works evoke the desperation of apprentices, clerks, and small traders in their monotonous toil behind shop counters. And, like Mr. Polly, his protagonists make a break from their mundane lives with more or less success. H. G. Wells (1866-1946) was a prolific writer in history, general and science fiction, and politics. He was a lifelong socialist. (Summary by Adrian Praetzellis) The History of Mr. Polly H. G.
