Lots of news from Anne Ladner, the elementary school teacher from Long Beach, MS, who lost her school in Hurricane Katrina.
First, she sent an update:
And then she sent photos (if you only click on one link, it should be THIS ONE):
Thirdly, for those that have K-6 books and school supplies to send, I have
the school district’s mailing address:
And finally, for those that didn’t get the whole story from the beginning:
See ya on the Net,

#2. No Time to Exercise?!
No time to workout? No problem! Introducing the
laziest way to get in shape. Get fit while you sit!

Physics Printable (** for premium members only)
2005 was named The World Year of Physics to coincide with the one-hundredth anniversary of three of Albert Einstein’s groundbreaking discoveries. In 1905, Einstein proved the existence of atoms and molecules, validated the concepts of quantum mechanics, and developed the theory of special relativity: E=mc2. I chose the following sites because they are a mix of serious homework help and physics fun.
A Century of Physics
This illustrated physics timeline tells five color-coded histories at once: cosmic, human, atomic scale, living world and technology. In addition to traversing the timeline event by event, you can skip around by decade, by using the index page, or with the drop-down search function. My favorite sections are the Arts & Culture sidebars you’ll find on each decade page. “The references to Art woven into the bottom border serve as reminders that science is but one of many different perspectives on the world.”
Fear of Physics
The creators of this site yearn to rid you of your fear of physics, and have created a “friendly, non-technical place for you to come and play with the laws of physics for a while.” Best clicks
are the animations and videos (such as “How Shaking Motion Can Destroy Structures” and “Hanging Bicycle Wheel Spinning” ) listed on the front page. The Homework Help section is reserved for paying members, but the rest of the site is free access.
Physics 2000 is a collection of more than sixty interactive applets and lessons demonstrating a variety of physics principles, and my pick-of-the-day site for high-school students and adults. I’ve always wanted to understand quantum mechanics (at least on a rudimentary level), so I immediately clicked on Quantum Atom (look under Science Trek) and found lots to learn and absorb. If you are looking for something specific, try the Table of Contents.

#5. Note from a Subscriber
I am writing from England to say thank you for your fun magazine which I read every week. We are just about to start our autumn weather here but at the moment we have glorious sunshine and very hot days… typical English September. We are all thinking of you at the moment and praying that Hurricane Rita does not cause the damage that is forecast.
Lots of love to America from England
