movies on youtube?

Say it isn’t so! Well, it is, but before you get super excited; yes, YouTube does now have some feature-length movies that you can now watch on the site. This does is nice, until you see the selection . . . It really isn’t great. But, if you are a movie junkie that can stand the Good, The Bad and the Ugly of what has been produced, I urge you to try it out.

Did I mention that there are some movies out there for you Clint Eastwood fans (for a limited time only)? Such classics as, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars are out on the YouTube movies section until November 30th. All you need to do is visit the link below and please let me know what you think. I know what I will be doing this Thanksgiving break.

elements of video

High school chemistry was fun for me as well as a challenge. I loved how the periodic table of elements was organized by groups of metals to non-metals and those in between. The problem was the hands-on experience was mainly reading a book about protons, neutrons and atomic numbers.

Today, technology brings us the ability to play with and learn more about our world with just the click of our mouse. With the technology of today, some enterprising professors at the University of Nottingham in the UK decided to bring to us The Periodic Table of Videos. By just clicking on an element on the Periodic Table of Elements, up starts a brief video with professors explaining and dare I say “playing” with the element you clicked on. What is even better, is one of the professors has a very remarkable resemblance to Albert Einstein. If I had a say, that is how all scientists should look. Please enjoy the show, and do not attempt many of the experiments they do at home!
