Blocking the internet

Guys, especially all Americans need to be made aware of this. Read the article from the following link. It is one of the scariest things that I have heard. The media and pharmaceutical are trying to pass a bill that would censor the entire internet. You NEED to read the following post.

Zippy Share!

Hey you guys, I haven’t been in touch for a long time, mainly because of exam pressure, but I I found a very nice file sharing site that is bound to be of use.

Now, the advantages of this is that you can upload any file up to 200 MB, without the need for creating an account, and its all for free. It supports also uploading video files and viewing them directly on the web, and when downloading, there are no queues, and that means there is direct hot-linking.

You can use zippy share on your free website, without having to pay more for storage on their sever. For example, if you use the webs website for creating websites, you can host larger files on zippy share.

In all, I believe this to be a better site than Mediafire, because there is very little advertisement and also unlimited download speed.

Simply explained

imageOften, when I was studying for my IGCSEs, a lot of the stuff on Wikipedia was rather difficult to understand. Most of my friends spent a lot of time simply searching up the worlds that they did not understand.

But there is a much nicer alternative, and that is Simple Wikipedia, which does not have as many articles as Wikipedia, but does have important and relevant articles for major topics especially for students studying at IGCSE, for which Wikipedia may provide far too much information which often leads to confusion.

The funniest thing you will ever read!

Hey guys, I know I have not posted in a long time. So, to make that up, I found something that will make you laugh so hard, your tummy will ache! Open-mouthed smile

Teaching kids how to spell

Hey you guys, I found a real great website on how to teach kids different words and how to say the different letters.
It basically is a YouTube video site made by a teachers that shows different words and spells them out.
Check it out! Open-mouthed smile

Choosing the right processor

Often you might want to buy a new laptop or desktop, and you are not sure about which processor you want to buy.

Well, here is a simple tool from intel to tell you which of their processors you should buy.

Here is a link to their website. For the average student I believe the best option is the i5 if you are not on a budget, it provides you with everything that you will ever need.

Medical Websites

imageHi guys, previously in one of my posts, I said that I would do a review of a number of websites, useful for medical students.Hot smile

Well, I have been doing a fair bit of searching, and I believe I have found some very good ones indeed.

MIT OCW Biology and Chemistry

imageThe Massachusetts institute of technology (MIT) has opened up an outstanding website called Open Course Ware (OCW). Now not only does this site offer courses for Biology and Chemistry, but over 2000 courses, from commerce based subjects to literature.

Now, these two sites contain a wide range of resources, which include lecture notes, tests based on the topics, multimedia content such as videos and pictures. Now, what I love most about these two sites are the videos that they have. MIT gives you actual lecture hall videos of their teachers doing class. I believe that these resources are absolutely astounding. And what may be most surprising of all is that its all free.

Medical Student

image

This site contains so much information, that I will not even attempt to go over what lies in these pages. But, I will tell you that, it contains information of pretty much all aspects of medicine, a smorgasbord of information lies here which includes pictures, diagrams, explanations etc...

Student Doctor Network

image

imageThis site offers advice, information and links to other useful sites for medicine. But, what I like most about the site if the forum. The forum caters for a wide array of medical disciplines, even dentistry! Click on the image to go to the original site. You can get information from the official site, and ask about different medical practices, request for resources and ask for advice in their forum. You have to make a free account in their forum first though.

And the picture on the side is just a list of the forums inside the forums, there are many boards and child boards inside them too.

In fact, I think the pre-medical forum here will be very useful for people who want to study medicine but are not sure about it.

 

Free books for doctors

image

This site contains may free medical books, and they neatly arranged into different topics. Most of the books are in Adobe .pdf format, so you will need Adobe reader to open these files. You can also try Foxit reader.

More sites

I would also like to point out to another fellow bloggers post, regarding useful sites for student studying medicine. Please find his post here! Open-mouthed smile

Till then, happy studying! Nerd smile

Physics, Chemistry, Math and more notes!

Lanther Notes is a great site with in-depth notes on all the three sciences. They are working on the A2 section, but their GCSE and AS sections are all very rich.

The Biology section is especially well equipped with lots of diagrams.

Historic videos and pictures

When I was studying History at IGCSE, I found it absolutely crucial to see sources, meaning pictures, videos and recordings of the pact occurrences.

This site, I believe is a history student’s paradise, full or videos and pictures of past incidences.

I think this site is the best site for historic multimedia on the internet. Enjoy! Open-mouthed smile

A great site for Kids

imageI have often had to teach kids, and I mean a lot of them. I have at-least 5 smaller cousin sisters, who still need to gain their basic reading and writing skills.

Thankfully, this site is one of the best sites that suits the purpose perfectly. In fact, it is one of PC Magazine’s top 100 sites.

Well, if you have to teach kids, I am sure that this site will be of great help to you! Open-mouthed smile

Managing you time

Physics, Chemistry and Biology experiments

The school I used to go to was rubbish, and the lab was a sad excuse for a run down shack fit for a wannabe repairman, but that did not stop me from getting to know the different experiments that I would be tested on.

I took both Physics and Chemistry, and in my quest to find decent websites that gave accurate information regarding the experiments, I found two: one for Physics and one for Chemistry.

Practical Physics is a site that has a vast array of topics on which the experiments are based, ranging from optics electromagnetism.

Practical Chemistry is a site made by the same foundation, the Nuffield foundation. This is equally adept at explaining the chemistry experiments.

imagePractical Biology is also a part of the trio and is just as rich in resources as the previous two!

These sites both place greater emphasis on GCE A levels. But, there are plenty of areas where they can be useful for the people studying IGCSE. Enjoy! Nerd smile

Anything and everything about Physics

physicsThe Physics Hypertextbook is a site which is dedicated entirely to Physics and pretty much has everything you would ever want to know about Physics, the stating of which I would not dare to give.

I find the explanations here elaborate and very useful for students of all ages from IGCSE to University level; Glenn Elert misses absolutely nothing here.

So go ahead and try out tis website, I can at-least assure you that you will not be disappointed. Winking smile

Checking out movies

Often when I was doing my IGs, I would not know about the contents of a movie until I had actually watched it, or had heard what my friends had to say. Often, these movies have a lot of nasty scenes in them, that you really do not want to watch, and often what seems like a decent movie will turn out to be the opposite.

imdb-logoTo solve this problem, IMDB (Internet Movie Database) has made a very useful page for every movie called the 'Parent's Guide'. The parent's guide can be found in 'Additional Details' section.

For example, you want to know if there is anything inappropriate for your little brother or sister in a movie, here is what the Parent's guide would look like for Iron Man 2.

Enjoy whatever movie you want to watch now in peace! Open-mouthed smile
