A bunch of Amazon kids shows are now free even if you’re not a Prime member via TechHive

March 23rd, 2020 No comments

Attention parents with school-aged kids who have way too much time on their hands: Amazon has opened up 40 of its most popular family shows to stream for free to all, meaning you don’t need to be a Prime member to enjoy them.

Among the titles available are full seasons of Amazon animated originals such as Bug Diaries and Pete the Cat, as well as older fare including Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street and Just Add Magic. Additionally, PBS Kids has taken down the Prime paywall for much of its content, so shows such as Arthur and Caillou are now free. You can browse the full selection of titles on a dedicated page, but it’s unclear how long the offer will last or whether new shows will be added over time.

Home School: Whale experts launch free, virtual marine biology camp to entertain and inform kids via GeekWire

March 22nd, 2020 No comments

The scientists running Seattle-based Oceans Initiative more typically apply their marine mammal expertise to research on endangered orcas or conservation of white-sided dolphins in Washington’s Puget Sound.

But the upside-down world of the new coronavirus and the closure of their nearly 6-year-old daughter’s school inspired them this week to launch what they’ve dubbed their Virtual Marine Biology Camp.

Just one of those quirky sites — and excellent resources — that I happen across in my daily reading. Just the thing if you need to compare the size of a T-Rex to a human being  and tons of other dimensions. — Douglas
The design site Dimensions.Guide is a clip art library for designers, architects, and anyone else who needs precise scale drawings. Every scale drawing in its database is composed in the same clean line-art style. Drawings include sports equipment, cars, furniture, people (in various poses and sizes), computers and phones, plants and animals, room and landscape layouts, and even Marvel characters. And it’s all free to use in your own projects.

Off To Screenwriting Research Network Conference in Porto, Portugal

September 9th, 2019 Comments off

Porto main

Posting here might be a bit light over the next week as Rosanne and I head to Porto, Portugal for the annual Screenwriting Research Network Conference. This conference has become our yearly excuse for travel and has taken us to Leeds, UK, Wellington and Dunedin, New Zealand, Milano, Italy and now, Porto. Even though I am not actually part of the conference, it is always a great time as we explore a new country and re-engage with all the friends we have made from SRN. If you are a screenwriter, I would highly recommend you check out the group and these annual conferences.

While I record Rosanne’s presentations during the conference, I often have 1 or 2 free days on my own to explore and photograph the area. If you follow my Instagram account you know that I often have hundreds of photos from each location and slowly roll them out over the reset of the year. I expect Porto to be much the same. I have already done my usually explorations via Google Maps and found a number of interesting gardens and sites to visit. I wish I had more Portuguese language in my head, but right now it looks like Google Translate will be a very close companion during our 5 days.
