4 interesting links

[1] As young Reshma (a NammaShaale parent) who forwarded this link puts it: ‘a good resource for parents willing to keep up with school math.’  It is a pity this blog is not very current or updated regularly. It has quite a few nuggets of wisdom, though.

Understanding Children’s Mathenmatics – http://lindalevi.blogspot.com/

[2] This story came via Navadarshanam – and is about this interesting (and I might add, inspiring) guy Naga Naresh Karuturi – unfortunately from my bête noire, IIT Madras.

‘God has always been planning things for me’ – http://specials.rediff.com/news/2008/jul/28sl1.htm

[3] Jill Bolte Taylor’s TED talk – strongly recommended.

Stroke of Insight – http://www.ted.com/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_s_powerful_stroke_of_insight.html

[4] How can one forget Julia Butterfly Hill’s saga of living for 738 days atop a 600 year old Redwood tree for preventing it from getting chopped?

Circle of Life foundation – http://www.circleoflifefoundation.org/

Julia’s blog:  http://juliabutterflyhill.wordpress.com/

Wikipedia page (reluctant link) –  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_Butterfly_Hill

Enjoy. Reflect.
