The Best Sites To Learn About James Cameron’s Record-Setting Dive

As I write this post, James Cameron is at the ocean’s deepest point.

I’m sure I will be adding new resources to this list.

Here are my choices for The Best Sites To Learn About James Cameron’s Record-Setting Dive:

James Cameron Completes Record-Breaking Mariana Trench Dive is from National Geographic.

Deepsea Challenge is the official website of the dive, and has tons of multimedia resources, like this video:

Filmmaker in Submarine Voyages to Bottom of Sea is from The New York Times.

James Cameron Now at Ocean’s Deepest Point is from National Geographic.

James Cameron dives to deepest ocean point is from the BBC.

First Look: James Cameron’s Sci-Fi Sub for Deepest Dive is from the National Geographic.

Here’s a National Geographic video showing how they were able to determine it was the ocean’s deepest point:

Here are some CNN videos:

Two New Good Photo-Editing Sites

Here are the newest additions to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects:

PicMonkey joins the many other tools on the list by offering many different kinds of photo-editing features.

Clipi just offers the ability to resize photos, but it also provides some unique features. One, all you have to do is copy a photo and paste directly onto the website. Two, it will automatically save your photo on ImageShack without needing to register. It only works with the Google Chrome browser now, but they plan to make it compatible with others. It’s ease of use could make it popular.

 

The Best Posts & Articles On The Education & National Security Report

Earlier this week, the Council on Foreign Relations’ Independent Task Force on U.S. Education Reform and National Security (chaired by Joel Klein and Condoleezza Rice) was released.

Happily, it received attention for a couple of days and then dropped off of everybody’s radar screen. It will join the countless other task force reports that rest in the dust bin of history.

In the unlikely chance that someone does bring it up again in an education discussion, I thought it would be worth bringing together a few useful posts about it.

Here are my choices for The Best Posts & Articles On The Education & National Security Report:

The Joel Klein-Condi Rice ed report: What it will and won’t say is by Valerie Strauss at The Washington Post.

Condi Rice-Joel Klein report: Not the new ‘A Nation at Risk’ is also by Valerie Strauss.

Best part of ‘schools-threaten-national-security’ report: The dissents is, again, by Valerie Strauss.

U.S. Education Woes Threaten National Security, Report Says is from Education Week.

Feedback is always welcome.

Important Posts On Motivation

There have been several important articles and studies recently on the topic of motivation. I thought I’d bring them together in one post, and then add them to My Best Posts On “Motivating” Students:

Make Standards Engaging is by Bryan Goodwin and appeared in ASCD Educational Leadership.

How employee incentives can backfire is from CBS News.

Why Mark Zuckerberg shouldn’t listen to management gurus is by Felix Salmon at Reuters.
