    3. Schaeffer suggests that we be honest, simple and transparent.

      I read Schaeffer's blog and liked what she put at end of the post :" Stop it. Stop allowing those feelings to control you, even in small ways. It’s selfish.

      The world needs us. Someone is waiting for us.

    1. Got carrots?

      Since my focal theme is about plants, this Daily creates assignment (create a carrot man) seems a perfect match.

      First I Google searched an image of "got milk" , I picked the one with Hugh Jackman in it. because this commercial has a black and simple background, I thought, should be relatively easy to edit.

      Then I Googled a image of "carrot" and found one with png file, which means, there is no background for this image. Png file make it easier to add picture on picture.

      I duplicated the carrot picture and add them onto the "got milk" image to replace the original claws. I also colored his mustache into orange and change the text from "Got milk" to "Got carrots".

      Done! That's what a carrot man looks like in my imagination.

    1. Don't let your DS106 domain fall

      This DS106 Daily creates task is easy, I used Keynote to put the picture and text together. Keynote make it easy to drag the text anywhere I want to be. I also set the background of the text to be same hue of blue as the picture to give it a more harmonous look.

    2. This pair of feet has come a long way: from inhuman tradition to women's rights.

      When I see one of the new DC challenge is to make something about feet and where it has been, I immediately remembered one of my favorite novel" The Three-Inch Golden Lotus: A Novel on Foot Binding", by Feng Jicai, one of the contemporary writers in China.

      Set in the early part of the 20th century, Fragrant Lotus has her feet bound by her grandmother as an act of love and tradition. Later, her small feet catch the eyes of a wealthy man who makes her the bride of his oldest son. The women of the family all compete in family "foot contests" at which "lotus loving" friends of her father-in-law spend hours debating the fine points of the history of foot binding and its many nuances. Through the years, Fragrant Lotus becomes the head of the family and comes face to face with the changing movement to outlaw foot binding. Deceptively simple, this story has a far deeper meaning as a metaphor for the cultural revolution as standards of beauty change.

    3. Don't let your DS106 domain fall

      When I found out one of the Daily Creates assignments is to promote maintaining DS106 domain, I remixed one of the image from Game of Thorns with text. Considering the popularity of GOT, hopefully this tweet will be retweeted more and I can reach to more of my audience.

    1. What does the proposal say about where the benefit of “school work” – students’ labor or teachers’ labor – is supposed to accrue?

      Well. I think there would have to be an agreement between the student and the board to allow the copyright of his or her work. A company or organization cannot impose copyright on “someone by saying it is so".

    2. The open licenses are a necessary condition, if you will, for bringing education into the Internet Age, but they’re just the starting ground for rethinking “who owns” and “who controls” teaching and learning.

      I am having a hard time to fully understand this. Could anyone give some examples of what next steps would look like?

    1. Photo of my daughter

      I heard of Fibonacci thoery before but it is the first time I am actually looking for its evidence in my life. I was inspired by !this images I found online.

      https://gnostiek.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/fibonacci-mona-lisa.jpg

      First, I opened a photo album and go over some picture I took for my daughter, I found one picture looks especially better compared with other photos. I decided to use this photo to test the Fibonacci spiral.

      In order to do that, I will need to overlay the Fibonacci sprial on top of the my daughter's photo.

      I took some time to figure out how to overlay two images. I used befunky.com to get the job done.

      It turns out the proportion of the photo does fit into the spiral quite well. No Wonder it just looks so good.Or maybe just a child's picture always looks good in her mother's eye? :)
