A new study reveals our own smartphones are constantly tracking our movements after every 3 minutes...It is a widely known fact that smartphone apps collect huge amount of data regularly. The data usually includes users’ location information. But startling new facts on this data collection spree have been revealed by Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University in their study.
top apps from TED. At our small, fast-moving nonprofit company, everyone does a couple of jobs -- and productivity apps help us manage roles that shift between coding, writing/designing and running a full-scale confe...

In 1976, Russian — then Soviet — artist Mikhail Belomlinsky took on the Tolkien classic shortly after graduating from an MFA program in painting, architecture, and sculpture. The opportunity kicked off Belomlinsky’s career as he turned to political cartooning and children’s books. He went on to illustrate more than 100 of the latter, both in Soviet Russia and in the United States after his move to New York City in 1989.

Story of the couch / bed / guest bed How do you live in a small apartment, and still have the opportunity of having a bed, a nice big couch, and even the possibility of having friends over. I solved the problem with two normal mattresses . I put legs on the mattresses with hooks to keep it all together during the night. We have the bedlinen in a basket next to the couch/bed. The top mattresses are the thin type, and I have made covers for them, so it is easy to make the bed in the evening. See diagram of the whole apartment here The back cushions contains a foam mattress in the size 90 cm. by 90 cm. 9 cm. thick It is folded and hold together with a strap. When we have friend over two of these on the floor makes it out for one bed. The foam sort of makes the mattress stick to the floor so it doesn't slide apart during the night. We make the bed in the extra room, so it is still possible to have a little privacy. It works very well..
I actually have synesthesia! Not one of the cool kinds, though. lol I have Ordinal-Linguistic Personification. (OLP) Mine applies to numbers, letters, months, and days of the week!

Paper Pot - Bright Colors - Yanko Design...A great idea for the classroom and probably cheaper than always buying Kleenex. Looks nicer on a desk than a roll of toilet paper!!!

Family Year Books
Year Book, Photobook, Family Yearbook, Photo Book
Family Yearbooks: I am two years behind in my photobook. Granted! Everything is already organized in the photo book line.. do I want to do a 'book' or just slide every picture in.. later on.. do I really want 20 years of 'year books' and you can't take the pictures OUT to use for projects or copy.
great tips for making family yearbooks through Blurb. I really like the idea of making photobooks with journal like entries instead of photo albums.
family yearbooks, love this idea. @Janet Simonson you were the original inventor of the family yearbook but with giant photoalbums instead :)
Family Tradition #3: Family yearbooks... So the family pics aren't just stuck on the computer. Love love love this.
Family year books! I love this idea! Much less space than those bulky photo albums and prolly cheaper too!
Family Yearbooks. I want to start doing this. --a use for all those Shutterfly/Snapfish photo book deals I pass up!
Family yearbooks by Blurb.com...you can also make it from Facebook & Instagram photos! (books, magazine, brochures, etc) Good prices!
Family Yearbooks: so much better than the old style photo albums! Snapfish has tons of options and styles!..have i mentioned I LOVE snapfish!

I LOVE doing creative birthday parties, so this Lego birthday invitation idea really caught my eye (via Inhabitots). It got me thinking about one of my nieces who had a Lego themed party, and how fun it would be to do a Lego party for Sammy. So, I thought I'd do some web surfing for more fun ways to incorporate this theme into a birthday party. I admit I'm collecting and posting these links for my own use later on, but thought you'd also enjoy! If you want to go the insanely expensive route, you can get this great cake mold in the shape of a Lego man. When my super creative sister did her daughter's Lego party, she made her own cake that turned out great. She used a rectangular cake as the base for a giant Lego brick shaped cake, attached cupcakes to the top for the "bumps," and frosted the whole thing one color. Very cute, and no special pans needed! Want to take the theme to the extreme? How about Lego shaped ice cubes? The cool thing about this Lego shaped ice cube tray, is that you can also use it to make little chocolate Lego bricks, like Lisa Smiley did as cute, edible cupcake toppers! I remember my sister also had some great Lego shaped fruit snacks for the kids to munch on at the party, as well as take home in their goodie bags. Here are some more fun ideas for goodie bags or party game prizes, like edible candy blocks that actually snap together, Lego brick stickers, or small lego sets like cars and people. Here are some fun Lego themed napkins, although just some bright, primary colored ones would do just fine too. Here's another blogger who threw a great Lego party, and I loved this idea to make your own decorations out of the Legos themselves: Here's another creative mom blogger who held a Lego party, with a great idea of making a Lego shaped pinata filled with Legos, home made decorations, and coloring sheets for the kids to do. This blogger had a cool idea for a mailbox topper, to let the guests know which house the Lego party is at, along with many other great ideas to make yourself for your Lego party! I love the idea of having the kids build Lego cars and race them for prizes! I also liked their idea of just frosting a regular cake, and using actual Legos to decorate the top. You can also do a regular shaped cake and top it with these cute Lego brick shaped candles. If your birthday boy or girl really does love Legos, a fun gift idea for them would be a set of these cute Lego silverware. They can be used at the party, and then for mealtimes to come, as a great reminder of their awesome party! This site lists a bunch of great ideas for Lego themed parties too, including some great ideas for games and recycled, home-made decorations. Of course, like just about any licensed character/product out there, you can buy a big themed pack of Lego party supplies, but I think it's way more fun to do your own if you can find the time!

On the go crayon holders
Travel Crayon, Carseat Cup, Crayon Holder
Spice container was a little too small to fit the crayolas the kids wanted. I actually ended up putting mine in an empty peanut butter container. Fits ALL of them and it's pretty easy to tote around still. (Works great for restaurants.) Travel crayon holder from empty spice or parmesan cheese container. Kids could even put them in their carseat cup holders.
