** Herpetology News and Links at The Basking Spot

I hate the design (I'm sorry, I'm too old for bright green text on black) but I love the amount of information you can find at The Basking Spot ( ), links and news for herpetology fans.

Lemme turn the colors off on the page -- that's better. The right side of the page is a list of links to news stories about herps. On the left side of the page top, there's a list of the latest links in the link directory. On the left bottom is a list of categories in the link directory -- there are just over 400 links available at the moment. And at the very bottom of the page is a link to a comic strip starring a turtle.

Links are divided up into major categories (reptiles, amphibians, Internet resources) and subcategories (snakes, skinks, classified ads, pet stores). Unfortunately there's no annotation, just lists of resources.

Fri., Jan. 13, 2006 - Bugscope / Crocodiles & Alligators


From the site:

“The Bugscope project is an educational outreach program for K-12 classrooms. The project provides a resource to classrooms so that they may remotely operate a scanning electron microscope to image "bugs" at high magnification. The microscope is remotely controlled in real time from a classroom computer over the Internet using a web browser.

Bugscope provides a state-of-the-art microscope resource for teachers that can be readily integrated into classroom activities. The classroom has ownership of the project - they design their own experiment and provide their own bugs to be imaged in the microscope. The Bugscope project is primarily oriented towards K-12 classrooms and there is no cost to participate in the project.” [NOTE: Previously posted. - Phyllis ]

"an elegant and aching documentary"
--The Los Angeles Times

"If there's ever been a better television biography of a public
personality, I haven't seen it or heard about it."
--The Boston Globe

For more than thirty years, she was the most powerful woman in
America. Niece of one president and wife of another, Eleanor
Roosevelt was at the center of much of this century's history --
a charismatic woman of charm and of contradictions. Aristocratic
in voice and manner, she was also "tough as nails," says
historian Geoffrey Ward. "In fact, she was one of the best
politicians of the twentieth century."

To admirers, she was a woman with immense moral and physical
courage; through her newspaper columns, radio broadcasts, and
public appearances, she seemed to be a familiar friend. Her
detractors saw her as a dangerous meddler, a dilettante, a
traitor to her class. She was criticized for her socialist
leanings, her "overreaching" role as first lady, and was seen by
many during her husband's administrations as a political na=EFf.
Determined to live life on her own terms, Eleanor Roosevelt
traveled far from her sheltered beginnings to become one of
America's most admired figures.


FBI File

While the FBI never launched a formal investigation, Eleanor
Roosevelt amassed one of the largest single files in J. Edgar
Hoover's collection -- it comprised more than 3,000 pages. See a
sample of files and memos on the first lady.

Roosevelt Family Tree

The prominence of the Roosevelt family in American history is
legendary. Eleanor and Franklin were cousins, but how closely
related were they, and how were they related to President
Theodore Roosevelt? Check out this family tree to find out.

My Day

Eleanor Roosevelt's "My Day" was a syndicated newspaper column
published from 1935 to 1962. The column reached millions of
Americans with her views on social and political issues, current
and historical events, and her private and public life. Read her
columns in this special feature.

EARTH SCIENCE ANIMATIONS, Variety of Authors, Find an organized list of over 200 earth science animations alphabetized by topic ranging from atmosphere to weathering. Each animation is referenced and has a short description. Animations are in various formats including Flash, .Mpg, Quicktime, and Real Player. These animations were organized as part of my fall, 2004 sabbatical at the SERC, Carleton College. To access the animations: and then click on the Earth Science Animations link.

VIRTUAL COURSEWARE: WELCOME TO GLOBAL WARMING, Virtual Courseware, (suggested by Holly Devaul, DLESE), A recent addition to the Virtual Courseware suite of on-line modules is one on Global Warming. The activities illustrate the principles of global warming and climate change due to natural and human-caused factors. They include a set of activities on the Earth's energy budget and future climate change. The energy budget model uses Mono Lake, California as an example. The future climate change activity uses the Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES) from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Data for six scenarios can be examined and comparisons can be observed by selecting a change or stabilization in emissions. The tools in the activity can generate data that examine predicted changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, global and regional temperatures, sea level, and flooding. There are also tutorials on a variety of topics, such as Milankovitch Cycles, Earth's seasons, the Carbon cycle, and others. An assessment tool is included so that instructors can determine how well learning objectives are being met.
Index to all modules:


VISUALIZING CARBON PATHWAYS, SERC, (suggested by John McDaris, SERC), this Earth Exploration Toolbook chapter introduces users to visualization capabilities available through NASA's Earth Observatory. Users build several animations of satellite data that illustrate carbon pathways through the Earth system. For instance, users build animations of fire images that indicate carbon is being released into the atmosphere and also make animations of plant productivity images that indicate carbon is being removed from the atmosphere and locked into the biosphere.

[NOTE: Earth Exploration Toolbook Chapters
“The Earth Exploration Toolbook (EET) provides step-by-step instructions for using Earth science datasets and scientific tools in educational settings…Chapters are designed for use by K-12 teachers, undergraduate faculty, and their students.”

Found in:
8 October 2005 Earth Science Sites of the Week

EARTH SYSTEMS CONNECTION, NASA (suggested by Theresa Schwerin, IGES), Earth Systems Connections (ESC) is an elementary science, mathematics and technology curriculum that consists of multifaceted lessons organized into learning modules (Maps & Images, Plants & Soils, Migrations & Changes, Landscape Changes, Global Visions, Seasonal Changes, Earth Systems & Humans). Over 100 activities are contained within the ESC lessons. Each activity has been designed to develop in students a rich sense of how the Earth operates as one interconnected system. Lessons are organized into
three categories: Entry (K-2), Intermediate (grades 2-4) and Extended (grades 4-5). Includes PowerPoint presentations.

EDUCATOR'S GUIDE TO "FOLLOW THE DRINKING GOURD” Madison, Wisconsin School District, (suggested by Cheryl Dodes, Weber Middle School, Port Washington. NY), The site provides an Educator's Guide to the song "Follow the Drinking Gourd." During the era of slavery in the United States, many slaves fled to freedom in the North using the Big Dipper (drinking gourd) as a guide to which way to travel. The words from the song "When the sun comes back" teaches us that slaves knew how to use the sun as a calendar. During winter and spring the sun's altitude (angle above the horizon) is getting higher and higher each day at noon until the first day of summer. In summer and fall it gets lower each day. So, "When the sun comes back" refers to when the sun starts coming back up higher in the sky each day.

Recommended Website:
PBS: Misunderstood Minds - Writing

This remarkable website was recommended by list member, Mary Burns. She wrote, "The site explains difficulties children may find in reading, writing or math, helps a parent identify the difficulty, and gives strategies for addressing them. I've found it very helpful already."

I wasn't sure what to expect when I visited the site, but I was very impressed with what I found! This is a companion website to a PBS presentation that profiles a variety of learning problems and the latest theories and remedies for them. It is designed to give parents a better understanding of learning processes, insights into difficulties, and strategies for responding. That may sound clinical -- but it isn't at all. This site uses technology to allow parents to VIRTUALLY EXPERIENCE what it's like when a kid struggles to trace letters or put thoughts on paper. You'll find explanations based on the latest brain research, and good suggestions for how to help kids who struggle with writing.

Not only that, this website also provides similar interactive explanations and solutions for understanding kids who struggle with reading and mathematics, and also those who have difficulty paying attention and focusing. The fact that the website provides virtual activities that allow you to "walk in their shoes" and get an idea of what kids with difficulties experience -- goes a long way to help promote empathy and understanding. Highly recommended!

The MegaPenny Project

We hear BIG numbers mentioned all of the time - government budgets
require trillions of dollars, computers have billions of bytes, and a
space probe travels millions of miles. Most recently, the news is
filled with stories of the billions of dollars in damage caused by
Hurricane Katrina. Talking about these gigantic numbers is one thing
-- visualizing them can be very difficult. How much is a billion or a
trillion or a quintillion? Well, at today's website you can find out.

The MegaPenny Project takes one small U.S. penny and shows you what a
billion (or a trillion or more) pennies would look like. You'll even
find out how many pennies it would take to fill the Empire State
Building. Not only will you SEE what that many pennies would look
like, you'll discover things such as the value of the pennies, size of
the pile, weight, and the area they would cover (if laid flat).
Computer images make visualization of these gigantic numbers and facts
a snap.

When you get to the site you will see a brief introduction and a menu.
For the best effect, ignore the menu and follow the progressive "tour"
from start to finish by clicking on the words "Enter The MegaPenny
Project." You and your kids will be amazed to discover what BIG
numbers really look like and you will also find out some fascinating
information along the way, such as the answer to this question:

Would you rather be paid one million dollars today - or - would you
rather be paid one penny today (1¢), twice that tomorrow (2¢), twice
that the next (4¢), etc. for 30 days?

Go to today's site to find the answer. When you finish exploring the
MegaPenny Project -- don't miss the MegaMoo project. (Same idea, only
using Holstein cows!)

Wondering with and about Images
From the article:
“Because images and imagery are used by powerful people to influence our thinking and our actions, schools must acquaint young ones with the ways that images can stir us or agitate us. Students must learn to view images critically as well as appreciatively. They must also learn to communicate with images.”
