Libre Office spell checker doesn't believe that
Ordnungsmaßnahmenverordnung is a valid word.

It is, and it is feared by my pupils.

Perhaps Libre Office should get detention too? ;-)

I bought 100 pencil sharpeners to let them be abused by the kids. ;-)

Magnesium (the body) as a "sacrificial anode" protecting iron (screw and blade) from being oxidized in a salty and moist environment.

I can't believe this.....

Donated!
Please help us defend our trademark from Groupon and support GNOME!  

"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default desktop for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server distributions, and it is the default desktop of Fedora and Debian. SUSE Linux Enterprise Point of Service solution for the retail industry is based on GNOME. GNOME technology can be found in TVs, tablets, phones, consumer devices, and in common software everywhere.

Recently Groupon announced a product with the same product name as GNOME. Groupon’s product is a tablet based point of sale “operating system for merchants to run their entire operation." The GNOME community was shocked that Groupon would use our mark for a product so closely related to the GNOME desktop and technology. It was almost inconceivable to us that Groupon, with over $2.5 billion in annual revenue, a full legal team and a huge engineering staff would not have heard of the GNOME project, found our trademark registration using a casual search, or even found our website, but we nevertheless got in touch with them and asked them to pick another name. Not only did Groupon refuse, but it has now filed even more trademark applications (the full list of applications they filed is available on our groupon page linked). To use the GNOME name for a proprietary software product that is antithetical to the fundamental ideas of the GNOME community, the free software community and the GNU project is outrageous. Please help us fight this huge company as they try to trade on our goodwill and hard earned reputation.

We want to show that our brand matters and that you care. Of the 28 trademark applications Groupon filed, we have to file formal proceedings to oppose 10 of them by December 3, 2014. Help us raise the funds to fight back and most of all call public attention to this terrible behavior by Groupon. Help us make sure that when people hear about GNOME software they learn about freedom and not proprietary software. Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications. If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME. Please help us raise the money to protect GNOME's trademark and strengthen Free Software!

So, +Jehan Pagès recently organized a few F/OSS artists to provide some artwork for a calendar!  It features some great artists, and any proceeds are directed to the artists and various F/OSS projects used to create the art!

http://librecal2015.libreart.info/en/

The project needs to hit a minimum to place the order, so if you'd like a nice calendar for 2015 with some awesome art, and to support the projects used to create them, go check it out! :)

If you want to share this with others, it would really help to get the word out!

Disclaimer: I'm one of the artists.  I'm also going to roll any proceeds that come to me back into the F/OSS projects.

A birthday cake made by a girl (11) from my class for her favorite biology teacher. :-)

I fed the brain with her permission to the science teacher meeting later today. Sweet in more than one meaning of the word. ;-)

This is really a good way to teach!
If organelles could talk!

Nice this comics from Beatrice the Biologist. The author is a former high school biology teacher who simply loves to talk, write, and read about science.
