What Shakespeare really sounded like – linguists reconstruct a 400-year-old accent to remarkable results. For some Shakespearean reimaginings of a completely different nature, see Hamlet as a choose-your-own-adventure novel and if Shakespeare had written Star Wars.
I’ve seen this before and I can’t get enough of it. 400 year old English is so fascinating!
Turn your 3DS into Sailor Mercury’s Super Computer ⊟
Part cosplay accessory, part 3DS accessory, this case by Lightning and Lace turns an Aqua 3DS into a pretty great facsimile of Sailor Mercury’s Super Computer, which she uses “to analyze enemies and other objects upon which data is needed, enabling her to find weak points in her enemies.” I’m sure it would look cool on other colors of 3DS too, but not as seamless.
Pre-orders for the $22 case end November 15. A 3DS XL version is also in the works. Via @ferretparty.
This can go for any art, really.
"Music, visual arts, and crafts education is compulsory for students up to age 16 in Finland, as part of an effort to promote creativity and problem-solving skills and boost learning in other subject areas.
"In terms of students’ abilities in other subject areas, based on cognitive studies, it seems that the arts promote our capability to learn other subject areas too. For instance, learning music in early childhood seems to develop one’s linguistic capacity," said Finnish educator Eija Kauppinen in an Education News article.” (source)
As computer experts hired by the U.S. government scramble to fix the much-maligned healthcare.gov website, a corps of independent kibitzers is chiming in from around the world, publicizing coding flaws that they’ve discovered and offering suggestions for fixing them.
That dude’s an old saxophone student of mine! How rad is that??
Also, fwiw, he was the most advanced student I’ve ever had. Look what bebop does to your braaaain (it makes it awesooome).
