Class Procedures and Reminders:
Storybook stack. As always on Monday, I will have a huge bunch of assignments in the Storybook stack that were turned in over the weekend or on Monday morning. I'll update the stack on Monday morning around 9AM, and you can then check the contents of the stack to make sure I received your assignment. I will be reading and replying to the assignments in the order they were turned in.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Learning Humor: Maslow's Hierarchy of Zombie Needs. I'm sure those of you who are psychology or education majors have encountered Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, and even if you don't know Maslow, you can still appreciate these zombie needs!
Featured Storybook: The Quest for the Manuscripts of Hercules. To go along with the mythology word today, here is Shane's Hercules Storybook for this semester, in which you meet a modern-day Hercules battling the ancient giants all over again.
Words of Wisdom: Today's proverb poster is Another's pain is without meaning; only the one who suffers it knows what it is like (a proverb from India). Details at the Proverb Lab. This is a proverb from Kashmir!
Mahabharata Image: Today's Mahabharata image is Nala and Damayanti, just at the moment when Nala decides to leave her in the forest.
Monday Event on Campus: There will be a harp ensemble performance at 8PM in the Pitman Recital Hall (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
April 7: Ravi Shankar. Today is the birthday of the amazing Indian musician, Ravi Shankar, one of the modern masters of the sitar. He was born in 1920, and he died in 2012. You can read about Ravi Shankar's life and career at his official website (with audio!) and in this Wikipedia article, which is the source for this photo of Ravi Shankar with George Harrison of the Beatles, back in 1967. You can also find some great Ravi Shankar videos at YouTube.com - such as this wonderful video of Shankar's appearance on the Dick Cavett show. He left us with much beautiful music!
