Thanks for the inspiration, Regina.

It Came From Under the Bed

His breath held painfully as fretful fingers climbed the bedstand lamp for the switch. Below, old homework papers crunched slowly. Ominously.

“Skipper…?” The dog’s name was little more than a slow exhale.

“Please be Skipper.”

Pffffffffft

He gagged on the warm, unlikely relief of dog fart.

The ABCs of gas law

ImageI just flipped another lesson over at TedEd. This time it’s not one that I would likely use in my biology class, but it teaches the same principles found in my iBook, The Thirteenth Labor of Heracles, so I couldn’t resist. As always, I welcome your comments – especially with respect to the clarity of the questions bundled with this video.

The Thirteenth Labor of Heracles Released

Image

The Oracle at Delphi

DownHouse Software released The Thirteenth Labor of Heracles iBook today.

The Thirteenth Labor of Heracles is a mythological tale describing a forgotten labor of the great hero Heracles. In completing this labor, Heracles not only earns his freedom, but also gains an understanding of the natural world. Specifically, this tale centers around the laws that govern the behavior of gasses.

This reading, and the problems that it incorporates, complements an introductory chemistry or physics course discussing the states of matter. It presents clear descriptions of how the Gas Laws of Boyle, Charles and Gay-Lussac operate independently and how they come together into a Combined Gas Law.
