I am a musician. I play the harp. I also once played the clarinet and the piano. I took dance lessons for 12 years (ballet, tap, and jazz). And I love to draw and paint, but I'm not very good at it. I love the arts and I love the intersection of science and art. Without science, you wouldn't have art. And without art, science would be very lonely and boring.
Here are a few fascinating articles that I found that show the combination of science and art.
Gracias a la invitacion de CLAUDIA URREA, compartimos las actividades desarrolladas en el MIT, en la celebración del DIA DE SCRTACH, via Videoconferencia.
Una oportunidad de conocer los nuevas funcionalidades de la versión 2.0 y la aplicación en diversas propuestas.
Evidenciando que permite desarrollar en nuestros estudiantes habilidades sorprendentes en el manejo de esta herramienta de programación.
I'm not what people call "a language person". I speak English fluently because it's my mother tongue. I had trouble learning Spanish in high school and college, but I know enough to get by when I travel to Mexico or other Spanish-speaking countries. I learned some Hebrew, too, but my memory only holds a few traces of the content I learned from 10 years of Hebrew school (purple, king, money, bird, and dog, and the numbers 1-10 are the only words I could recite to you now).

I've been hearing reports about it on the news, and soon I will be hearing the hum live: the cicadas are coming! Specifically, Magicicada brood II, the 17-year brood, which is emerging or about to emerge along the East Coast of the US.
The University of Connecticut is tracking their emergence, and a Cicada Tracker Web page is helping them out. If you live in range of this brood, you can help track the cicadas. UPDATE I heard my first cicada this year, at about noon on May 20th.
The Magicicada is very striking to look at, with red eyes and glossy wings.

DESCRIPCION DE LA ACTIVIDAD
The New York Times from last Saturday (May 11) had an important article about global warming. The Earth has passed an average daily level of 400 parts per million (ppm) of carbon dioxide. CO2 is the gas that does the most damage as far as global warming is concerned, because it traps the heat in the Earth's atmosphere.
This is very bad news for our planet, most immediately for people who live on the coastlines, which will be more prone to flooding.
The time is now to make personal changes and to make larger changes.
As I've mentioned before, my father has a green thumb. We grew up with fresh fruit, vegetables, and flowers coming out of our ears. So what's the best thing to do with all of our peaches, oranges, blackberries, plums, grapefruits, etrogs, lemons, apricots, cherries, apples, pomegranates, grapes, and peppers? Make jam, of course!
Please read this article I found on the world's tallest freestanding rock in Mexico.
The Article is from Live Science.

In April, I represented SEED at the annual conference of the National Science Teachers Association, held in San Antonio, Texas. Somewhere around 8,000 science teachers from elementary through university levels came together from all over the USA and from a good number of other countries for a week of sharing and professional growth. This was a real high point in my professional year!
