It's a fun little Flash game. Your goal is to create a series of buildings. All you need to do is check the blueprint and move the tiles around. Just don't let time run out on you! Nice way to relax. An alternative to Solotaire.

Climate Change   http://climatechange.unep.net/index.cfm  Site Reviews(0)
Established as part of the United Nations Environment Network, this area of their site serves as a portal for resources that deal specifically with climate change. First-time visitors will want to cast a glance on the left- hand side of the homepage, as the whole topic of climate change and global warming can be a bit daunting, to say the least. Here they will find a *Key Issues* area which offers a set of resources that provide introductions to the topic, along with sections on the overall environmental, social, and economic implications of climate change. The *Featured Resources* area of the site will be of great interest to educators, as it includes a *do-it- yourself* climate model program that could be used in the classroom and a series of greenhouse gas emission graphs.

Learning a foreign tongue can really open up doors. And if you travel overseas, it is important to be able to communicate. Spend time at the Beeb's Languages site.
