The Cool Tricks and Trinkets Newsletter # 376 11/10/05
Cosmic Evolution

Cosmic Evolution is a mind-bending and fascinating field of
scientific study. It focuses on the various changes in energy,
matter and life that have occurred over the infinite evolutionary
course of the Universe.

Created by the Wright Center for Science Education at Tufts
University, the site explores the lifespan of the universe, from the
"Big Bang to Humankind". Read articles and watch movies to learn
more about the many epochs in the history of our mysterious universe.

New York Changing

In the 1930's, photographer Bernice Abbott released a landmark work
of 50 photographs entitled "Changing New York". Six decades later,
contemporary photographer Douglas Lever used Abbott's original camera
to capture the same locations at the time of day on the same day of
the year as she did.

Browsing through the "New York Changing" online exhibition is a
fascinating experience, reminding us that the only thing in this
world that is constant is change. The 'Rephotographs' create a start
contrast between Depression-Era New York City and the Manhattan of today.

News from American Experience

Monday, February 27 at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings)

For thirty years, it was known as the darkest day in aviation
history. Just moments after lift-off on September 6, 1970,
passengers on TWA Flight 74 from Frankfurt to New York were
startled to hear an announcement over the plane's PA system:
"This is your new captain speaking. This flight has been taken
over by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine."
Minutes later, travelers on another New York-bound plane,
Swissair Flight 100, faced the same chilling reality.

Members of the militant Palestinian group had hijacked four
commercial airplanes. They commandeered a fifth aircraft three
days later. Wanting to attract attention to the Palestinian cause
and secure the release of several of their comrades, the P.F.L.P.
would hold hundreds of hostages at a makeshift Middle Eastern
airstrip, and spectacularly blow up three of the planes in the
Jordanian desert six days later.

From award-winning producer Ilan Ziv, HIJACKED features
first-hand recollections from former hostages, flight crews, and
their captors and recounts the day that a new era in global
terrorism was born.

In Cold Blood: A Legacy [Quick Time]

Forty years ago, Truman Capote, author of such novels as "Breakfast at
Tiffany’s” set a new standard of interpretive and investigative journalism
with his investigation into the brutal killings that changed the lives of
the residents of Holcomb, Kansas. In 1965, The New Yorker published his work
in a serial format under the title, “In Cold Blood”. Earlier this year, the
Lawrence Journal-World created this fine online site in order to provide
some perspective on these events and to afford readers the opportunity to
respond to these events. Visitors to the site may wish to start by looking
at a timeline offered here of the events, then learn about the various
participants in these events. Additionally, visitors can read the full-text
articles of the four-part series, including pieces that offer some insight
into the characters in Capote’s work and the way in which he portrayed the
various parties to these events. Finally, the site is rounded out by a
collection of photos that include those of Capote in some of his trademark
hats and the Finney County Courtroom where Perry Smith and Richard Hickock
were convicted of the murder of the Clutter family. [KMG]

BBC Science & Nature: Prehistoric Life

The BBC is well-regarded for their laudable efforts to provide high-quality
online content that complements their fine radio and television offerings.
Devised as part of their general Science and Nature website, this particular
corner of the web offers a number of educational resources on prehistoric
life. The casual visitor may want to take a look through some of the
highlights offered here, which include a section on so-called
“killer”dinosaurs (such as the triceratops) and ancient sea monsters. The
highlights area also includes a fun interactive game that allows visitors to
match fossilized feces (called coprolites) to the animal that is most likely
to have created it. Visitors would also do well to take a close look at the
“Human Beginnings” area of the site, which allows them a number of insights
into the various early achievements of prehistoric man, along with
information about those hominids that are sometimes affectionately referred
to as cavemen. [KMG]

From the site:
“What is Myth?
The word ‘mythos’ comes from the Greek meaning to be spoken with the mouth and is humankind's first method of communicating our cosmological vision and understanding of the why and how questions regarding birth, life, death and the rhythms and cataclysms within nature. Symbolically composed and orally shared, myth is our way of speaking to one another about our quests to know God and our longing for communion with the Divine. A detailed explanation of myth can be found at ‘What is Myth?’.” ( )

Tues., Feb. 21, 2006 - Bees and Beekeeping

---------Forwarded Message--------
Hi! It's Tuesday, October 18, 2005 and time for Science at ClickSchooling!

Today's offering was inspired by list member Deena Ortiz who forwarded a website that she described as, "a cute, animated video about beekeeping." After watching the video, I decided to find some additional sites about bees and honey to share with you today. :)

Recommended Websites:
History of Beekeeping - Animated Video

This is the site that Deena recommended. Allow about 15-20 minutes to view this animation and read the accompanying text. It tracks the history of bees and beekeeping from evidence provided by ancient amber samples (dating to the time dinosaurs roamed Earth), to cave paintings in Spain and Africa, to the 19th century development of a reusable hive for honey collection that is still in use today. As always, parents should review the video prior to watching it with children to determine suitability. - Just For Kids
This remarkable website from provides all kinds of fun facts about bees and honey that kids will enjoy. It includes wonderful, interactive games that teach bee biology, plant botany, and more.
DON'T MISS the "Materials for Teachers" at this site where you can download for FREE "The Honey Files - A Bee's Life" (pdf file) containing all kinds of lessons and worksheets that include:
*Bee Biology -- Learn the anatomy of a bee!
*Bee Society -- Find out who's in charge in a hive and the role of pheromones in bee communities.
*Bee Hives -- Explore math through polygons in bee hives.
*Pollination -- Dissect a plant to find the source of honey.
*Honey -- Discover its many varieties and uses and find out which of the four taste sensations honey triggers on a map of your own tongue! Indulge in making some great treats with honey recipes.
*Beekeepers -- Find out what beekeepers do and check out their equipment.
*Additional Activities -- Go on a Word Search, take the Honey Bee trivia challenge, do some honey bee math!
Note: The Honey Files pdf is a companion to a comprehensive video about bees available for purchase ($15) at the website. While you don't need the video to utilize the lessons in the free pdf file -- it might be fun for a homeschool support group to purchase the video and screen it for the group, or pass it around to each family for review. The direct link to the teaching materials is:

Draper's Bee Cam
We've featured this website previously on ClickSchooling -- and it's always fun to revisit! Here, a live camera is trained on a working bee hive at Draper's Bee Apiary. See all of the action and try to find the Queen Bee. - World Beekeeping Directory
This site offers a directory of beekeepers worldwide. The link above is directly for North America. When you get to the site click on the state or province you are interested in to find a directory of beekeepers located in that region. There is a brief description of the beekeeper's services along with contact info. You can call or email and find out if they offer tours. Some beekeepers do. :)
