Educational Podcast from Laura

Posted by emac3326 on September 11, 2006

Sadly, Laura, I am behind, so I have not listened to this one yet. But I will. I promise.

So for the rest of you in class, take Laura’s word for it. Check it out. I will.  Soon, I hope.

I found a great podcast as I was studying for my history class and I thought I’d share it with you.  It just happened to be on the subject we had just gone over.

This is a wonderful educational podcast that I enjoyed listening to. It is of acceptable quality, and the content was excellent.  The
podcast itself sounds as if it is of low production, but it is still worthy of being listened to.

A favorite of Laura’s

Posted by emac3326 on September 7, 2006

My vidcast link for this week is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkhaCLx6vys.  This one always makes me giggle.  I remember finding it with all of my friends in the room, and it has become a classic among our group.  I have also updated my blog with some answers to people’s questions and a few pictures.  More to come!

Laura’s Ultimate Blog and a Few Goodies

Posted by emac3326 on August 31, 2006

The url for my blog is http://balletdancer51.wordpress.com/.  I intend to write about Ultimate Frisbee mostly, but there will probably be a little bit of eveything.  It is all described in my first post.

Two blogs that I enjoy reading are:

http://europeanhistory.about.com/

This blog is about European History and advancement of knowledge on the subject.  I enjoy reading it because it tells me a lot about what’s going on in the field of history that i want to enter someday, and it keeps me knowledgeable on the subject.

http://www.spokesmanreview.com/blogs/volcano/

This is a blog that I’ve followed since I was in high school.  For a long time (even now) I wanted to be a volcanologist.  I’m still extremely interested in it, and I like to follow new developments, especially in the Cascades.

Listening to podcasts, I’ve decided to include one of my favorite series.  It is Dane Cook and many different remixes, songs, and stand up.  I love Dane Cook’s stand up, so this series is one of my favorites.

Click listen on the first one to hear one of my favorite series.  *Warning: Vulgar language is used extensively, if that offends, don’t listen*

Answering the Public Domain Question.

Thanks to Laura Chambers, here is a link to a Google search “with many links for libraries of works that have passed into public domain.”

Lots of Blogs from Laura C.

Two blogs that I enjoy:

http://blog.scifi.com/stargate/

Stargate Sg-1 is one of my favorite television shows.  I’ve watched it since it first came on 10 years ago (I know, big geek, lol) and I enjoy reading the blog to keep up with different things behind the scenes.

http://icultimate.blogspot.com/

As earlier mentioned, I’m captain of the Ultimate Frisbee team here and a couple of other teams during the rest of the year.  I’ve been playing for 2 years, and I’m extremely interested in all aspects of the sport.  The blog version of IC Ultimate is a great way to follow the sport in the United States and around the world.

Other links of interest:

http://www.ultimateshowdown.org/

This one is hysterical.

www.nbc.com/nbc/Video/

I would link you directly to the movies, but, as we discussed in class, NBC  has taken action against any free entities posting the videos.  Take a look at “Lazy Sunday” and the Natalie Portman rap.  They’re great.

http://www.thelonelyisland.com/just2guyz.html

This is a favorite of my friends and I, especially when our friend Steve’s around.

This is a fun one too.

Personal Synopsis: Chambers

Posted by emac3326 on August 24, 2006

Laura Chambers

Hello there. My name is Laura Chambers. I am a history major with an interest in almost everything. My experience with computers is relatively exstensive as far as older medias go, and I am a huge fan of blogs, podcasts, etc., and I am looking forward to learning as much as I can in this class. I am a junior/senior with a full time job as a sales assistant at a wholesale jewelry company. As a small aside, some of my favorite things are sci-fi and anything comedic. I am also Captain of the Ultimate Frisbee team here at UTD. I think that’s enough about me for now. *:)
