    Towel Origami – Transform your towels into monkeys, elephants, and other fun origami

    The Lost Art of Towel
     Origami
    by Alison Jenkins
    Andrews McMeel Publishing
    2005, 80 pages, 7.5 x 8.2 x 0.3 inches
    $11 Buy a copy on Amazon

    A lighthearted small book for a harmless pleasure: towel arranging. Fancy hotels and restaurants will complete the decor in a room by folding napkins or towels into complicated patterns. Since it costs nothing, and adds a tiny amount of tickle to life, why not? But how do they do it? This handiwork is not taught everywhere. Here is a manual that is short and straightforward and full of diagrams; you almost don’t need to read it. I like it because it is not hard to pick it up and immediately begin to transform the nearest towel. Unlike paper origami, the final form will not be saved; the finished beauty is ephemeral, unravelled – gone! – when the towel or napkin is used. – Kevin Kelly

18th century instrument to determine the sky’s ‘blueness’ called a Cyanometer: 

The simple device was invented in 1789 by Swiss physicist Horace-Bénédict de Saussure and German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt who used the circular array of 53 shaded sections in experiments above the skies over Geneva, Chamonix and Mont Blanc.

  10. "After some 30 years of [analyzing teaching], I have concluded that classroom teaching—particularly at the elementary and secondary levels—is perhaps the most complex, most challenging, and most demanding, subtle, nuanced, and frightening activity that our species has ever invented. In fact, when I compared the complexity of teaching with that much more highly rewarded profession, “doing medicine,” I concluded that the only time medicine even approaches the complexity of an average day of classroom teaching is in an emergency room during a natural disaster. When 30 patients want your attention at the same time, only then do you approach the complexity of the average classroom on an average day."
