There are a lot of new movies in theaters now but one of the movies that cought my attention was Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. This move is about a dad who died in the 9/11 attack while being in the World Trade Center. His son Oskar thought his dad left him a hidden message that was left for him in New York City. The boy goes to New York City to go on a hunt for a lock that fits this mysterious key he found in his dad closest hoping to find the message.

  Burn Notice is a show about a spy that was burned.In this show being burned isn't being lit on fire, it is a term for being fired. Michael Weston is the main character and he was fired, and when your a spy and you get fired you lose your ability to travel so where you get dropped of you stay there and you lose your assets. Also you lose all your bank accounts and have lots of people watching you and your family. Michael has to find work to have a house and relies on friends and including his family.

The Hunger Games!

One of the movies coming out soon is The Hunger Games. Many people are obsessed with all the books, written by Suzanne Collins, and are looking forward to the movie being released on March 23. The film features many famous stars, including The Last Song star, Liam Hemsworth, as well as Elizabeth Banks and many other actors. The film takes place in the future where boys and girls are selected to fight on live television. When Jennifer Lawrence's character, Katniss Everdeen's younger sister, Prim, is chosen to fight to death, she decides to take her place. Gale Hawthorne, played by Liam Hemsworth, is Katniss's best friend and Josh Hutcherson is starring as her love interest, Peeta Mellark. Overall, with all the drama and excitement the movie is very highly anticipated.

http://www.dropbox.com/
Most of us know about the lovely products Google provides.  Thy are easy and convenient to use, but if you have a word document or a power point or some other non-google product it’s harder to share these things.  Dropbox is an easy to use cloud based, for lack of a better term, “flash-drive” that can store documents in the cloud for free up to two GB.  There is a cost for more memory but it’s a nice thing to have for all things non-google.  You can access your files from anywhere; Dropbox is available as a download for your home computer, apps for android and iPhone, and online too.  

Pinterest

Pinterest is a "virtual pinboard" in the company's perspective. The web site is part social media and part organizational tool; you can follow other Pinterest users to see things that they post, and you can post your own pictures and videos to share with the world. You can use Pinterest to plan a party, organize recipes, decorate your home, or just categorize all of the things you love.

On Pinterest, you make boards, which are essentially categorized groupings of things that you like. You can make a board for a specific party you are planning, or a recipe book, or a grouping of books or movies that you like. Each item on a board is called a pin.

If you find someone with interesting boards on Pinterest, you can follow them, and all of their posts will show up in your news feed (much like Twitter for those who are familiar with that site). However, if you are on someone's page and only like one of their boards, you have the choice to just follow that board.

There is a feature on Pinterest called the "Pin It" button, which makes pinning media to one of your boards much simpler. When you're on a website and you see a picture or video of something you like, you can click the "Pin It" button and a tab will open. You select the piece of media you wish to display on your board, choose the board you want to display it on, and give it a description. After clicking the post button, it publishes automatically to the board you selected and the next time you log in to Pinterest, it will be waiting there for you.

To get started on Pinterest, you have to request an invitation. It can take up to a couple of weeks before you receive the invitation, but once you click the link in the email you receive, you can start pinning right away. When you log in for the first time, Pinterest asks you about your interests and automatically has you follow users that post about the interests you selected, such as history, art, fashion, or food.

New Nano-Robots

posted Feb 1, 2012, 8:58 AM by Emily Stickney   [ updated Feb 1, 2012, 9:06 AM ]

By Emily Stickney
New robots called quadcopters have been invented at the University of Pennsylvania. These small robots are some of the first that can have coordinated actions, such as flying in a figure-eight shape. They are also very agile and can do things such as flip over, land, change directions, and move around obstacles. This is significant because these robots could eventually replace human search teams. Sometimes people have to search in dangerous conditions, such as when a major earthquake or a tsunami happens. The robots could guarantee the safety of many people who risk their lives to search  for others in a dangerous situation. While people are still looking for a way to program groups of robots at a time, rather than having to program each one manually, this is still a big scientific advance and may help many people in the future.
