"I would like for you to have a pencil out on your desk," fifth-grade teacher Mary Fucella said to her reading class at Point Pleasant Elementary School in Glen Burnie, Maryland. A kilometer and a half away, in a pink bedroom, Cloe Gray pulled a pencil out, too, and listened. Cloe, 11, is at home, recuperating from leg surgery. For the first month after the operation, a home tutor visited her. But the precocious child grew withdrawn and didn't want to leave her bed. She missed routine. She missed her friends. She missed real school. "You could tell she wasn't happy," said Rob Gray, Cloe's dad. The Anne Arundel County school system in Maryland had a cure. Cloe now attends class virtually through a $3,000 robot. Hers, which she named Clo-Bot, was donated by the local Rotary Club. Since she began using it, the learning hasn't stopped. Clo-Bot is basically an iPad attached to a pole on wheels.

‘You can’t do a trade deal with Germany, only the EU,'” a senior German official told the Times of London. “On the eleventh refusal, Trump finally got the message, ‘Oh, we’ll do a deal with Europe then,'” the official added. Merkel explained to Trump that he must instead negotiate with the EU in its entirety after his administration’s efforts to reach out to the nations individually had been denied. Merkel also said to her own cabinet members that Trump only had “very basic misunderstandings” regarding the “fundamentals” of the EU and multinational trade agreements.”* Read more here: http://www.salon.com/2017/04/24/art-of-the-deal-angela-merkel-had-to-repeatedly-tutor-donald-trump-in-the-european-union/ Hosts: Cenk UygurCast: Cenk Uygur *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Doctor Who broadcasts on Saturdays at 7:20pm UK time on BBC One, and 9pm EDT on BBC America. Emojis aren't only the future of language for us doomed Earthlings, but we're also the only poor saps throughout the universe who use them. This is one of many things that the Doctor's ace new companion Bill Potts learns from her intergalactic tutor in Smile , the second installment of series 10 of Doctor Who . While Nardole (Matt Lucas) is left back at base grumpily guarding the mysterious vault in the bowels of the university and making a brew (NB: for our American readers, that's a cup of tea), Bill ( Pearl Mackie ) tells the Doctor ( Peter Capaldi ) that she wants to travel to the future.

The photos were scanned and posted online by the Prints and Photographs Division, joining seven others already available. Some photos in the group are believed to have been taken by Pierre Gilliard, a tutor who stayed with the imperial family during much of its detention. He composed a narrative that is attached to several of the original photos. It explains that the Romanovs were detained from March 1917 until August 1917 at Tsarskoye Selo, an estate that had belonged to them. They occupied their time with religious activities and walks in the park under close watch by guards. Gilliard continued to teach lessons, assisted by the czar and czarina. The czar and his children in front ofGovernor's Housein Tobolsk, Siberia, where they were held captive from August 1917 to May 1918.

If you fancy a go at circuit bending, where do you start? Perhaps you find a discarded musical toy at a junk sale and have a poke around, maybe you find the timing circuit and pull it a little to produce a pitch bend. Add a few wires, see what interesting things you can do connecting point A to point B, that kind of thing. Many of us have spent an entertaining afternoon playing in this way, though it's probable few of us have achieved much of note. [Russell Kramer] however must have persevered to become a circuit bender par excellence , as his latest project is one of the most accomplished circuit bending projects we've seen. Zappotron Super Sequencer is an analog sequencer . Except that sentence simply doesn't convey what it really is, it's an analog sequencer with four sound sources: two tape decks, a 4046 oscillator, and a circuit-bent spelling tutor toy, and its sequencer component is controlled with a Nintendo light gun and a CRT screen.

Scientists typically think of songbirds' vocal development in terms of how one circuit in the brain learns a song. But researchers have now investigated how zebra finches learn songs from a different perspective. They studied how one part of its brain, which they dubbed the 'tutor,' teaches another part of its brain, the 'student.' They found that in order to teach effectively, the tutor must adapt its teaching style to how the student best learns.
