Ever had that crazy dream of actually being able to interact with other users who are surfing at the same time as you on the same web page?
It’s now possible.

I found this software from the company weblin. After you have created an account and installed the software on your computer, you select a character that will represent you and every time you surf on the Internet, you will see at the bottom of your screen a figurine representing you.

Now if someone is on the same web page as you while you’re surfing, you can engage in a conversation.

If you decide that you don’t want to be visible to the other users anymore, a simple right click on Weblin will do.

Give it a try.

I received a comment  on my blog! Here is my answer to her question. Please feel free to add more resources.

We are getting more and more IB Biology textbooks on the market and maybe it would be a good thing to make a check list starting with the best ones:

#1: Biology for the IB Diploma, by  C. J. Clegg, Hodder Education

Based on the new syllabus.

#2: Biology 7th Edition, by Campbell and Reece,  Pearson

More than a textbook.

#3: Biology for the IB Diploma 2e edition, Andrew Allot, Oxford University Press

An excellent IB Biology study guide.

#4: Biology by Rita Ghalayini.

She has everything.

#5:  Senior Biology 1 and 2, Biozone.

Nice diagrams, and a lot a questions to prepare students for Paper 2.

A book was published this week by a Danish doctor who claims that Napoleon died of kidney complications.
Always nice to insert a bit of relevant history in section 11.3 The kidney?!
