Online teachers, remember to create it, do the pdf conversion, and email it....even with all our modern innovations, nothing motivates like one-to-one recognition. Five minutes spent yields weeks of on-task excitement.

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
The growth of these cities will create a host of environmental and health problems.”By 2210, the global population is expected to grow from just more than 7 billion to 11.3 billion — with 87 percent of the population living in urban areas, according to a new working paper by researchers from NYU’s Marron Institute.Most of these individuals will be in what’s now the developing world — creating a host of environmental and health problems.If projections are correct, these new urban dwellers will require the world’s existing cities to expand six-fold to accommodate triple the residents, Richard Florida wrote in The Atlantic. Plus, the world will need 500 new “megacities” of 10 million or more, he wrote.

Amazing Satellite Photos Of Earth Offer A New Perspective

Amazing Satellite Photos Of Earth Offer A New Perspective | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
From up in the sky, the world that we know seems simplified, yet profound and the way architects and urban planners have shaped the earth comes sharply into view.Astronauts have described this phenomenon as the "overview effect," citing the psychological impact of seeing the Earth from outer space. The Daily Overview, a new website launched last month, aims to share their sense of awe by posting one satellite photo of the Earth every day.Founder Benjamin Grant and his team have chosen to focus on the built environment, "shining a light on the areas where our human activity—for better or worse—has shaped the landscape."

Interactive Maps Show How English Words Translate Across Europe

Interactive Maps Show How English Words Translate Across Europe | Interesting thoughts | Scoop.it
Here's a fun language web toy to while away your afternoon. Type in an English word, and you'll see a map of how that word translates in different parts of Europe.James Trimble created the European Word Translator, which uses Google Translate to source its translated words. He notes that the system isn't perfect; some of the words may be incorrect, and sometimes it may pull words that are used in non-European dialects of the language. Plus, it only provides one translation per language per word—so watch those words that have more than one meaning in English. Still, it's a fun way to track similarities and differences across languages—and to find lots of quick translations.Visit the link for more examples.
