Overview iPad apps are expanding the learning experience both inside and outside the classroom, making it more interactive, immersive, and engaging. And we know that when students are more engaged, they are more motivated and they perform better. With so many amazing education apps available—and more being developed all the time—there’s no limit to the exciting possibilities for learning. Tens of thousands of education apps on the App Store cover everything from math and science to foreign languages and reading. Students can manipulate math equations using just a finger. They can browse an interactive periodic table of elements. They can even dissect a virtual frog in one class, then flip through the world's greatest collection of art in the next. And teachers can deliver engaging lessons, monitor progress, get immediate feedback on students, and stay organized. Getting Started If you’re just getting started teaching with apps, it’s helpful to begin by setting goals for student learning. What must students understand? What should their interaction with apps look like? And which apps would work best for your specific lesson plans? You may find that choosing an app is easier after carefully considering what you want students to do with it, and why. You might begin by exploring questions like: • What parts of your lesson plans are you particularly passionate about? How could you best communicate that enthusiasm to students? • Where do your students encounter roadblocks around a topic or lesson? What might help them get over these hurdles? • What concepts or activities would you like to cover but don’t have enough time? Can they be taught more efficiently or combined with others? • What are the opportunities to gain insights into student learning through the content they create with apps? The answers to these questions and the content in this guide can help as you begin to explore, choose, and integrate iOS apps into your classroom.
Acute lingual tonsillitis: an overlooked cause of severe sore throat in adults who have had a palatine tonsillectomy? Sasa Janjanin and Drago Prgomet TO THE EDITOR : We both are ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists at a tertiary university hospital and cover 1–2 nights of emergency calls each month. Over 8 months in 2008, we witnessed four emergency patients (aged 25–39 years; three men, one woman) who had sore throat, mild fever and pain on swallowing, without any respiratory distress symptoms. One patient presented with “hot potato voice”. All had had a The Medical Journal of Australia palatine tonsillectomy in 6 July 2009 191 1 ISSN: 0025-729X childhood. On 45-9 examination, the oral pharynx appeared normal to Journal of Australia ©The Medical mildly hyperaemic, 2009 suppuration. To without any www.mja.com.au exclude potenLetters tially fatal epiglottitis, all patients underwent transnasal flexible laryngoscopy, which revealed swollen lingual tonsils covered with fibrinous exudate typical of streptococcal infection. Distal structures, including the epiglottis and endolarynx, were normal. Acute lingual tonsillitis was diagnosed, and the patients quickly responded to penicillin therapy. Some degree of infection of the lingual tonsils probably occurs when the pharynx is otherwise infected, but is usually left undiagnosed because it is not easily visible without laryngoscopy.1 Although none of our patients had any life-threatening symptoms, this condition could potentially cause upper airway compromise, and the course would certainly be more arduous without antibiotics. The flexibility of our health care system in Croatia allows for some emergency patients’ to refer themselves to the relevant specialty services. If these patients had presented to general practice rather than to our department, where we performed transnasal laryngoscopy, this diagnosis would have probably gone unnoticed, and antibiotic therapy would not have been prescribed. Thus, is acute lingual tonsillitis a neglected cause of severe sore throat? A search of the current literature and ENT textbooks did not reveal many reports of this disease.2,3 Even if our observations referred to rare cases, considering our hospital catchment population for ENT emergencies of more than 300 000, they still outnumbered all cases of epiglottitis treated at our ...

IMPORTANT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH YOUR BURLEY BY READING THIS ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE USE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR AUTHORIZED BURLEY DEALER OR VISIT WWW.BURLEY.COM. Introduction Once you’ve done the initial assembly and read the safety guidelines, you’re ready to go! Before trailering, be sure you have the tow bar, trailer wheels and hitch securely attached. Note: Any reference to left or right is made in direction of travel, as if you were standing behind the trailer, looking forward. Safety Guidelines WARNING BICYCLING WITH A TRAILER, AND BICYCLING IN GENERAL, CAN BE HAZARDOUS. FAILURE TO OBSERVE ANY OF THE SAFETY GUIDELINES IN THIS MANUAL COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENT AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. 1. Inspect and maintain your bicycle and trailer regularly. See “Safety Checklists” on page 10. 2. This trailer is designed for one pet weighing up to 75 lbs (34 kg). Never carry a larger pet, as the extra weight and higher center of gravity may cause the trailer to tip over. 3. Because of the trailer’s additional weight, a bicycle pulling a trailer is heavier and less responsive. Avoid sudden swerving, rocks and curbs. 4. Experiment with your pet in the trailer by taking short trips in an uncongested area until you both are accustomed to the trailer. Train your animal companion to sit or lie when the trailer is in motion. Never tow an excitable pet, as they may lunge or jump, causing the trailer to tip over. 5. To protect your pet from jumping from the moving trailer, always use your cover and never leave your pet unattended. 6. Observe recommended speeds: a maximum of 15mph (24km/h) on smooth, straight roads, and 5 mph (8km/h) or less when turning or on uneven roads. 7. Never use your pet trailer for transporting people. 8. Never pull your trailer with a motorized vehicle.
EXPECTATION STARTS WITH E CLASS SEDAN / WAGON 2014. For generations, one car has set the standards to which all other automobiles instantly aspire, and will someday adhere. Once again, leadership takes a leap ahead. Since its arrival in its original form some 60 years ago, the Mercedes -Benz E Class has devotedly fostered two virtues of leadership in the automotive world: A talent for breaking new ground in virtually every area of automotive excellence. And a knack for predicting what people will expect from all cars in the future. For decades, it’s been the standard-bearer in innovation, safety and rewarding performance. It’s been the subject of study to emulate its solidity and durability. And it’s been the object of endless idolization — from cars whose ads claim to have duplicated its iconic style, to wide recognition for inventing what is now a core category of luxury automobile. For 2014, the E Class asserts its lead once more — actually, several times more. It’s more advanced in its performance and its eco-friendliness. Intelligent Drive is a new name for its ever-expanding, industry-leading roster of innovations in both driving safety and convenience. And a stunningly redesigned body and more elegant cabin present the role -model virtues of the E Class in supermodel style. Once again, the pace of progress has been reset. And with it, so has every expectation of what an automobile can be.

Did you miss your chance to join newspaper, or do you just want to be a published writer? Send stories and contact info. to dohertyspectrum@ gmail.com for a chance to be publish in next month’s issue! T he fourth amendment of the constitution states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” So why is the government trying to put both the SOPA and PIPA laws into effect? SOPA stands for Stop Online Piracy Act, which simply means if it is passed it will allow the internet to be censored, meaning any copyrighted material and any sites giving off illegal music/movies, will be terminated and “censored”. PIPA which stands for Protect Internet Protocol Act would be able to give the US government and copyright holders’ additional tools to curb access to rouge websites dedicated to infringing or counterfeiting goods. PIPA works in hand with SOPA. In 2012, these laws came into question, but the people fought to make sure it did not happen. The issue is being brought up once again. The part that is irritating to people is that the government is trying to pass these laws right under our noses. The website Wikipedia went on a “blackout” protest which shut down the website for a day. A part of the law says that: “Streaming a copy- righted work over the Internet is considered a violation of the public performance right.” This says that if a cover song and/or remake is made and if it is under a copyright, the person that made that cover or remake can be criminally charged with a misdemeanor. People have become famous from doing covers such as Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and many more, but imagine it being against the law to do these covers or remakes. Imagine the talent and musical masterpieces that would be missed. Celebrities such as comedian Aziz Ansari, and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails are against the SOPA and PIPA acts.

Change furnace filters once a month during the heating season to reduce heating costs by 5 percent. Use a programmable thermostat You can cut annual heating and cooling bills by as much as 10 percent per year by automatically turning your heating system up or down to coincide with your daily routine. Set your thermostat between 65 and 70 degrees during the winter, and at 58 degrees when away from the house for more than a few hours. Open and close windows and adjust shades to regulate housing temperatures On sunny days, open draperies and blinds to let the sun’s warmth in, and close them at night to insulate against cold air outside. Install storm windows Storm windows installed over single-pane windows can cut heat loss through the window by as much as 50 percent. Storm windows added over double-pane windows can cut heat loss an additional 25 percent. During the heating season, storm windows help to reduce drafts, water condensation and frost formation. Covering windows with a plastic cover is a less costly alternative to installing storm windows.
