Dear Reader,

A few weeks ago I quietly released Jokes By Kids: Volume 2 over at Amazon. I have priced it at $2.99, but I’ll probably raise that to $3.99 as soon as I collect a few more reviews. If you do buy it, writing a short review is very simple. Just look for the “Write a Customer Review” button. Thanks!

Oh, one more thing. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow the book for free. Pretty cool.

See ya on the Net,

Albert Einstein, known as one of the greatest scientists of all time, was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. The following sites explore his life and his work – and what struck me most was how accessible Einstein’s theories can be when explained with examples and illustrations.

American Institue of Physics: Einstein: Image and Impact
*****
The American Institute of Physics site (my pick of the day) explores Einstein’s life through historical accounts, photographs and sound clips. The Brief Version (recommended for elementary students and anyone not wanting to read all one hundred pages of the Main Exhibit) can be traversed by following the Next Page link at the very bottom of each page. Clicking on any other links for more detail will take you into the Main Exhibit. To return to your tour through the Brief Version, use your browser back button, or start again at the home page.

BrainyQuote: Albert Einstein Quotes
****
“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” While I might argue with Einstein’s first statement, I can’t agree more with his conclusion about the importance of effort. Want to understand relativity? Here’s Einstein’s short version: “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”

Einstein
****
“Today, the practical applications of Einstein’s theories include the development of the television, remote control devices, automatic door openers, lasers, and DVD-players. Recognized as TIME magazine’s ‘Person of the Century’ in 1999, Einstein’s intellect, coupled with his strong passion for social justice and dedication to pacifism, left the world with infinite knowledge and pioneering moral leadership.” Calling itself “The Official Site”, Einstein.biz has a short biography, a photo gallery, a quote page, but very little about his theories and his work.
