Although I'm illuminated I remain in the dark
t'is because I cannot leave my heart
My heart hasn't left yet
That's why I don't return
I'm not willing to leave them behind.
That's why I don't return
please open the door.
The door is open,
but I'm thinking of them
and I hesitate to enter.
I watched everything is illuminated with my father.
He decided he wants to learn.
I'm very happy.

How frustrated are the glas particles when they're opaque? Are opaque particles broken? Or do they shape their own orientations that diverte light after a trauma on the glass. In the case of 'roman' glass there is metal (coper) in the glass matrix. The transparence of glass can be affected by an electrical current going through it. Can it be affected by it's particles microshapes?

First you need a blog.
Then get your feeds burned at feedburner.
Then get a statistics counter for your feeds.
Then keep up posting until you have about 25-100 views a day.
Then go to your stats and click 'items'.
This will give a list of items that were visited that day.
Then copy paste the list on your post.
You now have a feedpoem.
Here's the feedpoem for friday, 21 december 2007.

New research about climate change reveals earlier period of global warming.
I'm not a full believer in carbon dating and therefore I'm labelling this controversial.
Besides I don't adhere the following line of reasoning:
Reality can't be the way things are, because it doesn't fit my theoretic model.
I was inspired to the title above by the research on glas of Peter Schall of the University of Amsterdam who coworked with Harvard to have insight in streaming of glasparticles: the compactness of particles in glas is so dense that they can't all moove at the same time, 'frustrating' one another.
Thus a prisma is a 'frustrated' fluid, a tear is not.
An article will appear in Science, 21 december.

1 go for a walk if you can, whenever you feel stress building up
2 take a deep cleansing breath, relax: holidays are meant for relaxation
3 count to ten; are you going to regret saying that?
4 do cleaning pitches instead of trying to tidy all day long
5 cook, clean, do shopping together
6 do games together, blog, read, talk, hug, draw
7 get blankets and sit on the couches with blankets, all together
8 have plenty of puzzles bookmarked for the children
9 have craft materials ready for use in a box: paint, brushes, paper, glue, materials
10 do washing clothes when you wake up in the morning and when you go to bed
11 don't mind the mess, mind the family
12 try to get enough sleep
13 reward the little ones with a sweet when they behave well
14 ignore behavior that you don't like, give attention when they're kind
15 make a long shopping list and get it in advance

Solving puzzles can go together with creating puzzles. This site is Dutch, but contains an English section. Click on the British flag to find the elephant puzzle, a paper printable puzzle (looks like fun) or make a pencil shaped puzzle. There's an anoying pop-up that comes with the page though. Just click the cross button to make it go away.

In a cavern in Spain the indalo is drawn on a wall. It's a man holding a rainbow above his head. The unity of light was broken into colour. If you add all colour you get either light or darkness. What does this mean for psychology?

I was thinking that the emphasis on literacy maybe is not right. Maybe there's a group of young ones that need schools to be more tactile (working and learning with the hands) and more about skills and affective responsibility (friendship, sharing, responsibility). These schools could focuss on skills rather than on verbal development. On small business skills and development of a strong rural middle class.
I had a wooden puzzle in my hands. A fisherman's son thought he wouldn't know how to solve it, but he was going through the right steps. A lesson about non-verbal learning.

I gave tridio-C, a new cooperative game to my children this week. It's a new Dutch game that combines cooperation and solving a three dimensional building problem. I'm going to use this for scaffolding their group participation skills. First I'm going to observe how they work together and then I'm going to ask myself what I want them to work at individually. One of them talks much and doesn't listen much. The other stops speaking while he often knows best how to tackle a problem.
Meanwhile for the real piece of resistance: cosmology and relativity, followed by the faster than light puzzle: can tachyons break the rule of cause before effect? join in the discussion.
This week I had excellent news and was a busy bee. I gave presents to the children: e.g. a book on microscopes, a Dutch cooperative learning game called Tridio, Hive (we immediately started playing that one - I was beaten by a 7 year-old), a set to bake a cake or an applepie.
Probably my article will get published on blanco regel, my first e-zine article. It's an article on blogging filled with ideas.
Well, my writing starts to ressemble my coocking: trying to obtain combinations of healthy and good taste thinking, sporadically off, often looks strange because of frequent lack of interest for the presentation.
I wrote a new publisher an e-mail and got a request for a full or a partial the same day. To distract myself from the book I'm going to invent games and do writing contests. I enterred 4, in Dutch.

I find it difficult to wake up the children when it's dark in the morning. It's nearly completely dark when the children go to school. Also it's rainy and cold.
How could I construct a scaffold for this?
First what kind of development do I want to see. I want them to use their own alarm every morning, to set it and to wake up when it rings. I want them to dress up and make their food for school and not to forget sports items they need that day. I want them to find their socks themselves.
To get them to do this, it will be necessary to first teach how to use batteries and to know how to read the time and to set the time right.
To stand up in the morning and put out the alarm seems easy, but for a child it's not that easy. When your eyes aren't awake, you can't use them as well as during the daytime. Especially in the winter when there's less sunshine.
Then to dress up, it's necessary they know approximately what weather there is and what you need to wear. Ideally they should watch the weather news or read it in the newspaper.
The older boys master all this very well. I could let them teach this to the young one.

I searched 'blogtagpuzzle' on WWW. It's another neologism. Another I found was mindspecs. So if you ever need to find this blog, if you're in a serious need of a puzzle, just use your mindspecs and google.
To find the way accross the web makes me think of this pathfinderpuzzle from Oskar from Deventer and Puzzles.com.
