    You are welcome. There is so much useful information, offers, and educational resources free for the sharing or asking. What started as a quest for posters has become a quest of usable resources that are absolutely free to educators. Now, 104 pages later, I am still looking and sharing. I teach Biology, but also have certs to teach ESL, MS subject matter, Elementary K-6, and TOSD. Add to that the years I have spent supporting a son who is a Music Teacher, and you kind of understand the scope of the thread.

    I have a love of word play, so puns, etc., have recently been added. The trick with puns is to weed out the ones that are funny to us, but unsuitable (in my opinion) to use in the classroom.

    Enjoy the thread, browse at your leisure, and if you find something I missed, or have suggestions about what you would like to see more of, share that with me.

    In 2014, they broke the world record in Philippines after planting 3.2 million trees in just one hour. This deserves to be shared!

    Edit: Ethiopia recently broke the record by planting over 350 million trees in a day!

    Digits, either too many or too few are the product of sonic hedgehog activity in an embryo. See the link:
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2100419/ I also highly recommend viewing "My Inner Fish", available free from HHMI to educators. You will also find "My Inner Reptile" and "My Inner Primate" in the series. Excellent for showing the path of evolution.

    Guy makes legendary catch after rider loses their phone on a roller coaster
    Kempf was riding The Shambhala roller coaster at Aventura World theme park in Catalonia, Spain when another rider a few cars in front of him dropped their cell phone. The eagle-eyed Kempf can be seen watching it fly through the air, then he reaches out with his right hand to snatch the phone before it is destroyed dozens of feet below.

    The incredible footage was captured by a camera placed in the car by the theme park

    "Long story short I caught it. This roller coaster is moving at over 130kms [80 mph] and was once Europe's tallest and fastest coasters," Kempf told 1 News Now.

    After the ride ended, Kempf returned the phone to its rightful owner, who couldn't believe it wasn't lost or destroyed.

    "He was super surprised and happy at the same time," Kempf said. "He gave me a big hug and said he was going to buy the on-ride video for me."

    After the event, Kempf uploaded the video to YouTube where it has been seen over six million times.

    So, thanks to Kempf, it looks like we do have our first miracle of the video-era.

    Wormholes, tunnels through the fabric of spacetime that connect widely separated locations, are predicted by Einstein’s general theory of relativity. Some physicists think that wormholes could connect black holes in space, possibly providing a clue to the mysteries of quantum entanglement and how to merge general relativity with quantum mechanics.
