A villain was originally an unsophisticated country-dweller; the negative connotations of the word developed to include the ideas of base instincts, unprincipled behaviour and, eventually, evil-doing.

Never look at a plant the same way again! Join the amoeba sisters as they explore plant structure and the many adaptations that make plants true survivors. This clip briefly compares vascular and nonvascular plant structure before jumping into several plant adaptations. We'll also talk about the three reactants important for photosynthesis and how plants obtain them.

burning down your house in a fail-stop manner, an impossibly
large buffer error is like a criminal who breaks into your house,
sprinkles sand atop random bedsheets and toothbrushes, and
then waits for you to slowly discover that your world has been
tainted by madness."

Happy Earth day! Get your science on with some plant-related knowhow.
We're kicking off spring with a video on plant reproduction in angiosperms!

This is how people in the 16th century envisioned "modern" siege warfare.

Great article. I had no idea that the word "bird" (bird is the word, after all) used to be written and pronounced brid.

Women Techmakers Goes Global
in celebration of International Women's Day

This month, Women Techmakers from around the world are orchestrating and attending 100+ events that aim to increase the visibility, community, and resources for women in the technology industry. We've launched womentechmakers.com as the hub for this global event series, with a non-stop feed of our #womentechmakers posts from around the web. Please join in this movement in supporting women in tech by attending an event or making a post online with our hashtag. 

Our friends +Google for Entrepreneurs are also hosting a Hangout On Air tomorrow at 9am PDT with leading entrepreneurship organizations and founders and will be hosted by Google's own +Bridgette Beam. They will discuss how we can rethink the gender gap in the startup ecosystem, and talk about +Google for Entrepreneurs   #40forward campaign - where they are giving out $1 million to 40 start-up communities to increase the number of women in their programs by 25% in 2014. Make sure to RSVP for the HOA here http://goo.gl/vFOnv0 

These initiatives kick off a whole month of honoring women globally and I'm so proud to be a part of it. Please enjoy the video below which features Nazia from  +GDG Karachi in Pakistan - she is one of the many women who are making a difference this year.
