The Tidal Waves of the Qiantang River

The Tidal Waves of the Qiantang River | Journalism | Scoop.it
For hundreds of years, on the eighth month of the lunar calendar, people have gathered along the shores of China’s Qiantang River at the head of Hangzhou Bay to witness the waves of its famous bore tide. Higher-than-normal high tides push into the harbor, funneling into the river, causing a broad wave that can reach up to 30 feet high. If the waves surge over the banks, spectators can be swept up, pushed along walkways or down embankments. Below, I’ve gathered images from the past few years of the Qiantang bore tides.

This is an amazing set of images, where a cultural phenomenon is wrapped up in observing the pulsating physical geography of the river.  Usually the tidal bore is impressive (but not dangerous--see video here), but occasionally it can be incredibly violent (see this 2015 video).

Looks potentially useful for collecting and  learning phrases, idioms, etc. but haven't played with yet.
Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, August 11, 8:20 PM
If you are looking for specific, but new phrases to use, this may be of interest to you.  People collect their own phrases, idioms and collocations and use them in sentences to show how they are used. It's much like a vocabulary list, but instead of words, there are phrases.

How the states voted in every presidential election

The citizens of the United States have elected 44 presidents in 57 elections since the Constitution was adopted in 1789. Since the Civil War, presidential contests have been dominated by America's two major political parties – the Republicans and the Democrats. But over the last 150 years, state allegiance to these two parties has shifted greatly. Watch to see how the states voted in every presidential election since 1860.

This is one of the first resources to actively use digital tools to upgrade the minutes before instruction starts.  In my professional experience this would be very useful.  I think this is a new area that can be developed further to build in opportunities for students to use technology to deepen their learning.  What do you think?  Would you use this new resource?

Amazon's Jeff Bezos buys The Washington Post for $250 million

Amazon's Jeff Bezos buys The Washington Post for $250 million | Journalism | Scoop.it

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the world's 19th-richest man, has acquired TheWashington Post, long one of the country's most influential and prestigious daily newspapers, for $250 million in cash, the company announced today. "The purchaser is an entity that belongs to Mr. Bezos in his individual capacity and is not Amazon.com, Inc.," a press release issued by The Washington Post said. The purchase includes all of the papers The Washington Post owns (and their websites), including the Express daily, The Gazette Newspapers, and the Southern Maryland Newspapers, but does not includeSlate, TheRoot.com or Foreign Policy, which will remain with the Washington Post Company.

Last week, Bezos sold about $185 million worth of Amazon shares, though it's unclear whether the sale is connected to the acquisition.

Now former owner Katharine Weymouth says in a statement that she has agreed to stay on as both publisher and CEO of the Post.

By acquiring a cornerstone of Washington DC media, Bezos had immediately become a player in the nation's capital and expands his already significant profile in the media world. Founded 136 years ago, the Post is best known for its reporting on the Watergate scandal, which led to the resignation of US President Richard Nixon in 1974. That story elevated the publication from a well-respected regional daily paper to an internationally recognized news organization.
