The 10 most painful stings on the planet, by the self-sacrificing man who tried 150 different varieties in the name of science | Tasty Arsenic | Scoop.it
Most of us will have felt the pain of a bee sting. Luckily most of us will have avoided the dreaded pain of a tarantula hawk or a fire ant.

14 extinct animals that could be resurrected

14 extinct animals that could be resurrected | Tasty Arsenic | Scoop.it
Can lost species ever become un-extinct? In the 1993 science fiction film "Jurassic Park," dinosaurs are cloned back to life after their DNA is discovered still intact within the bellies of ancient mosquitoes that were preserved in amber. While the science of cloning is still in its infancy, many scientists now believe it's only a matter of time before many extinct animals again walk the Earth.

The Battle Between What Teachers Know & What Politicians Want | Online Universities

The Battle Between What Teachers Know & What Politicians Want | Online Universities | Tasty Arsenic | Scoop.it

"Politics is about what happens rightnow, but education policy is about what happens five or 10 years from now. And it’s the second part of that phrase that explains a sometimes uncomfortable truth about policy and policymaking — in education, we really cannot say with certainty exactly how things will turn out in a decade, as the results based on student performance must be judged by longitudinal surveys for about a decade before judgment is passed."

This article explores "this long-term vs. right now view of education" looking at two survesys of teachers, and provides a list of what factors teachers believe "have the greatest impact on improving academic achievement" and which teachers believe "are the least important for improving academic achievement."
