This is #awesome  Hat tip to +Matt Cutts for the share.
January 2015: Every K-12 student (and every K-12 teacher) in the US can sign up for online access.
https://schools.safaribooksonline.com/
 
If  told you that any K-12 student in the US can get full access to all O'Reilly books and videos via a free Safari subscription, you'd be looking for the catch.  There isn't one (except that it's only open to US students - sorry. If anyone has ideas about how we can validate young people in other countries, we can explore adding them.

 +Andrew Savikas explains how this came about. Congratulations to the Safari team, especially +Keith Fahlgren, who took the bit in his teeth and figured out how to make this happen.  I particularly like how the Safari team figured out how to make this an internet self-service play rather than something we had to work through bureaucratic channels.

And thanks to the folks at the White House, who used their convening power to get a whole lot of donations to help kickstart better STEM education in America.
Safari is providing K-12 students and teachers open access to books, videos from O'Reilly Media as part of $100M White House ConnectED commitment. Read More...

Thinking my cousin +Laurie Pavao might add this to her list of things to #knit   We still get great compliments on the multicolor scarf you made. 
 
Knit yourself a mermaid tail to stay warm! http://ow.ly/JB7df
This crocheted mermaid lapghan is so clever that I was inspired to write a little song about it.

I know all those #cyber folks in #AugustaGA   will want to come down and tinker with the 3D printers and CNC routers so help fund the floors. Help +Eric Parker  celebrate his birthday by funding the floors in the state of the art computer lab with touch screen stations, CNC routers, and 3D printers at the Innovation Academy. If you don't want to give $40 to have your name engraved in The Wall...any amount will do. 7 days left to meet the goal that is only at 34% $1,375 of $4,000 goal.

This story should be trending in my #Augusta  news feed
Thinking +WRDWNews12  +WJBF Producers +WJBF News Channel 6  +WFXG Fox 54 and +NBC 26  should feature this in the community news in addition to all the social media shares +HACKAugusta

^5 Thinking +florence bivens would enjoy making one of these and I am sure the dandelions will be in full bloom this season.

Dandelions can be surprisingly beautiful, especially if encased in resin. Here's how to do it! http://ow.ly/JEgz5
After a successful Kickstarter Campaign, the Dandelion Collective has been producing these gorgeous paper weights made from dried out dandelions and clear resin. Each weed is carefully hand selecte...

Wow. Hat tip to +National Geographic for the share #octopus  
 
See footage of a rare, swift octopus attack on an unsuspecting crab—one so aggressive it surprised even marine biologists.
A YouTube user in Australia captured video of an octopus ambushing a crab—"sheer aggressiveness" that surprised even a senior scientist.

This final phrase was slurred by English school children during recitation and reborn as "ampersand."

Introduction
DL Student, Practitioner, and Facilitator, Knowledge Sharing Passionista, retired Army-still serving, TB Bucs fan. Loves exploring new and different things with technology, assists others in their exploration and implementation of anything techie and assisting them with their digital divides and connections.

My circles and posts range from lifelong learning, Google products, military, information & operational security, educational technology, tech tidbits, things I learn or am learning as a mother, a G-Mama, a multigenerational household, and probably other things that don't fall into a list. http://uniqueedtechie.blogspot.com/
Bragging rights
Hmmm my diverse life experiences. No reason for a bucket list if you live life like Mark Twain's quote, "Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth".
