Edward Scissorhands was a creation of Tim Burton's that dated back to doodles from high school. From an article about an exhibit of Burton's drawings: One of Tim BurtonБs most famous characters, Edward Scissorhands, is way older than you think. БIt was an idea from when I was a teenager,Б says the director of Beetlejuice. БIt had been in my mind for a long time. Б. Those and other doodles (like the self-inflating cephalopod from 1994, below) are on display at the Museum of Modern Art through April. To unearth some of the forgotten gems, Burton sifted through boxes of old drawings heБd had shipped from a warehouse in the States to his home in England. БIt helps ground you and gets you to remember what interested you to begin with,Б Burton says. БIБve never really felt like a writer. It
At SESCOS, we know that a small electrical problem can become a big headache if it isn t fixed correctly, and in this post we ll take a look at a common electrical problem to discover why your GFCI keeps tripping and what you can do about it. What is it? The GFCI ( ground fault circuit interrupter ) is there to protect you. When it senses something blocking the electrical current, or a leak in the current, it shuts off the electricity. This is a safety feature. Because the GFCI can detect the tiniest leaks, it shuts off the power to prevent you from getting a nasty shock when you plug something into an outlet. But sometimes, it trips for no reason, in what electricians call false tripping or phantom tripping. Why does this happen? 1. You re Wearing it Out The wiring is old and wearing
We all live our lives geographically. Planet Earth is our home. It is awesome, diverse, inspiring and ever changing. Studying geography invites us to participate more fully in the excitement, enjoyment and challenge of this dynamic world. It draws on personal experience, to help us better understand the places we live in, why they matter and how they are connected to a globalised world. Geography draws from across the physical, cultural, economic and political spheres to illuminate key issues for the present and the future, explored at all scales from the personal to the local and the global. Through geography we learn to appreciate the diversity of landscapes, peoples and cultures. Geography is therefore a vital subject resource for 21st century global citizens, enabling us to face

Man fells pristine forests without considering the fact that he is destroying the environmental balance leading to soil erosion, landslides and barren areas. All the major multi national corporations are not supporting green environmental practices. Greenhouse gases are leading to rise in sea levels, radioisotopes like strontium 90 are resulting in dangerous levels of radioactivity (produced by nuclear power plants) and CFC's are depleting the ozone layer. ...

Scientists think that they have the answer to why the skin on human fingers and toes shrivels up like an old prune when we soak in the bath. Laboratory tests confirmed a theory that wrinkly fingers improve our grip on wet or submerged objects, working to channel away the water like the rain treads in car tires. People often assume that wrinkling is the result of water passing into the outer layer of the skin and making it swell up. But researchers have known since the 1930s that the effect does not occur when there is nerve damage in the fingers. This points to the change being an involuntary reaction by the body's autonomic nervous system the system that also controls breathing, heart rate and perspiration. In fact, the distinctive wrinkling is caused by blood vessels constricting below
