Spacesounds  Site Reviews(0)
Have you ever wondered what Saturn’s rings sound like? Or perhaps you’re wondering if a black hole or a pulsar makes sounds. Well, you can find out at Spacesounds. Play the sounds as you explore the universe. From the sun’s “heartbeat” to the sounds of Big Bang remnants, it’s all here. And you’ve never heard anything like it! There are also recordings from manned space missions. Listen to ground and spacecraft transmissions from various space missions. There’s even President Kennedy's famous “Moon” speech. But if you’d like to stay closer to home, listen to sounds from Earth. These include cosmic debris and spherics, tweeks and whistlers. Don’t know what these are? Visit the Web site to find out! Spacesounds requires the free Flash player. If you don’t have it, you'll be prompted to download it.

Sustainable Development in Coastal Regions and Small Islands  Site Reviews(0)
Despite the promises of an information revolution*, many small islands and coastal regions remain somewhat isolated, whether it is culturally or economically. In 1996 UNESCO established this program in order to look at how sustainable development might be encouraged on small islands and coastal regions throughout the world. To get a better sense of the projects they have sponsored so far, visitors should first visit the *Activities* area to learn about some of their field projects. Here they will learn about how they have assisted in the creation of integrated coastal management plans in South Africa and also worked towards developing a fisheries management plan in Haiti. Visitors should also peruse some of the themes offered here, which include *Sustainable Island Living* and *Island Youth Visioning*. This latter initiative is worth taking a look at, as it encourages young people living in small islands to develop their own visions of how they would like to see their communities grow over the coming years. Visitors who are seeking a place for dialogue on some of the issues surrounding these places should also examine the virtual discussion forums area. Here they can learn about wise coastal practices, and view responses to the timely question *Are tiny islands viable in the 21st century?*.

SpoofStick  Site Reviews(0)
Phishing is on the rise. Hardly a day goes by when you don't hear about sites that try to steal your information. In case you're unfamiliar with the term "phishing," it refers to sites that mimic legitimate sites. The creators hope to trick you into disclosing information such as user name and password. It used to be easy to tell these sites from the real thing. Bad grammar and typos were dead giveaways. But this isn't the case anymore. Phishers have gotten good. That's why I'm directing you to SpoofStick. It is just one more tool in your arsenal against malicious Web sites. Download the SpoofStick toolbar for Firefox or Internet Explorer. It shows you what site you're visiting. If it isn't the site you think you're visiting, you know to hightail it out of there –fast!

Sizeasy allows you to compare dimensions of items you find described on the web often. Many online stores show the dimensions of items like Product Dimensions: 192x45x32mm. Although useful this doesn't give us a feel for the real size of the item that we would get going into a high street store. Sizeasy allows you to take this size information and see it drawn out to scale next to everyday items so you get a real feel for its size.

Shodor Education Foundation  Site Reviews(0)
With the kind support of the National Science Foundation, the Shodor Education Foundation continues to provide a wide set of resources designed to assist educators with the formidable task of teaching young people about math and science. Since 1994, they have been responsible for the Interactivate website, which is designed to create, collect, and disseminate Java-based courseware for exploration in science and mathematics. On this part of the website, visitors can consider some of the 90 items they have created so far. The subjects covered include geometry, algebra, probability, and discrete functions. Within each activity, visitors can read more about the intended audience for each one, and also learn about the prerequisites and objectives for each lesson.
