A Cartoon All About Inertia! #SaturdayMorningCartoons
https://blog.adafruit.com/2019/02/16/a-cartoon-all-about-inertia-saturdaymorningcartoons/

Another great from the world of classic educational cartoons. In the U.S., these shorts popped up between other educational shows on PBS. It’s one of those theme songs that really activates the nostalgia. Here’s one on Inertia!

The Creation of Popular Science in Writing
https://blog.adafruit.com/2019/02/16/the-creation-of-popular-science-in-writing/

via Smithsonian

So started Conversations on the Plurality of Worlds, a dramatic work by French philosopher Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle. In the best-seller, published in 1686—one year before Newton’s groundbreaking Principia—Fontenelle introduced the lay public to Cartesian philosophy and the early science of the natural world. The story features two speakers, a man and a woman, discussing the features of our solar system and the use of scientific inquiry to illuminate the laws of nature. The writing proved so popular and accessible that Fontenelle’s work went through six editions during his life and was reprinted another six times by 1825.

Send a Photo from a TTL Serial JPEG Camera to an Email #celebratephotography
https://blog.adafruit.com/2019/02/16/send-a-photo-from-a-ttl-serial-jpeg-camera-to-an-email-celebratephotography/

From ASimon on hackster.io:

I would like to tell you how to connect the UART JPEG Camera VC0706 to Arduino Uno, take a photo, record it on a micro SD card and send this photo to an Email using 3G/GPRS shield. The basis of this article was another article which describes a similar procedure but with a different platform (Arduino M0).

Shared by Low Dough Tech on YouTube and Instructables:

Have you ever wanted to share your Internet connection from your main home to a second building but found out that the connection in the second location was just too spotty to use? Well, here’s a solution that I used to improve that flaky signal that is cost effective, efficient, and best of all; really really easy to do! Hopefully this will solve your irregular connection like it did mine!
