Mystery of Death Valley’s Sliding Rocks Solved

Now, for the first time ever, researchers have observed the sliding rocks in action. Finally! Under just the right conditions, thin sheets of ice blown by light winds push the rocks across the dry lake. The work, which turned out not to be “the most boring experiment ever,” was published in PLoS ONE this week.

School has started or will very soon so what would be better to do than to gather some great resources for a better school year?
Evernote - keep your research at one place
Khan Academy - over 4,200 educational videos
Mathaway - helps you solve almost every math problem
Cliffnotes - read and prep for school work
Studious - great way to keep track of schedule
iFormulas - references for mathematical formulas
Pocket - save studies and articles much easier
Science glossary - for those hard science words
Studyblue - online flashcards for your next test
Any.do - daily planner 
Dropbox - don’t rely on your computer alone, make sure your notes and papers are safely uploaded online, just in case.
Feed.ly  - gather all your fav websites for research or whatever in one place - I love this myself!
Scribd - online library
Self Control - we all know self control during work or school isn’t always around
TED - lots of good presentation by interesting people
Chegg - don’t have all the money for new text books? Chegg lets you rent many text books for much less than it costs to buy
Duolingo - learning a new language? Then I’ll recommend this one
Mint.com - make sure you’ve got your money straight 
Alarmy - hard to get up in the morning? Well, this alarm makes you take a picture of your sink to turn it off!
Sworkit - don’t forget that exercise will make it easier to concentrate! 
Don’t forget to look at my 27 websites for a new year - where you can find lots of other resources for health, fitness, school/work and div when starting a new year(school year too)
I’ve also got a post called 53 posts for students which contains nutrition and fitness posts especially for students!

Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in uniform: he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder.
