Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun in the Solar System. It is the second largest planet after Jupiter. Saturn was named after the Roman god Saturnus. Like Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune, it is a " gas giant". Saturn is best known for its rings which were first seen by Galileo Galilei in 1610 with his telescope.

The birth of a word | ELL Daily | Scoop.it
MIT researcher Deb Roy wanted to understand how his infant son learned language -- so he wired up his house with videocameras to catch every moment (with exceptions) of his son's life, then parsed 90,000 hours of home video to watch "gaaaa" slowly turn into "water." Astonishing, data-rich research with deep implications for how we learn.
Charina Paez's insight:

Very interesting for all interested in language acquisition!

Charina Paez's insight:

I saw some of my students using this and thought it was interesting.  Baidu is a popular search engine for Chinese speakers but students also found it somewhat limiting in scope.  Baigoogledu does a simultaneous search with both engines to compare and contrast results.
