Here is another thought for the math people, concerning our resources. One of the resources that is becoming increasingly scarce in our modern time is fresh water. There are of course many reasons for our diminishing water supply from over use, pollution, and waste, but here is one I think no one considers, us.
My thoughts are as follows:
1. The human body is, I beleive, 75% water.
2. Our population has increased drastically from early civilization
Yeah, that word—[B]CREATIVITY[/B]. (What were [U]you[/U] thinking?)
When I was a kid, I used to paint—little canvases or big ones, it didn't matter. Water color or acrylic. I had a sketchbook where I would go outside, sit somewhere interesting and let my graphite skip across the vellum; I did that into college, too. My grandmother used to get my sister and me small needlework kits or rugs to hook. I even crocheted for a time and did macramé. In camp, I did lanyards (gimp), among other
Heroes in the world—firefighters, doctors, police, teachers... you.
I'm a teacher. It's my passion in life. I don't want to do anything else. I try to be as much of a hero to my students as I can be, to inspire them to be heroes to others.
Please take four minutes to watch this video to see why this project and heroes mean so much to me:

Like cow paths meandering through pastures, ideas for the sequel have been moving along. I can only get so far with ideas while the school year is still in session. I get into my groove and then—WHAM—I have to grade papers or plan for a substitute while I've been proctoring AP and IB exams. The seniors finish tomorrow, and then I have until June 6 before the year ends. I hope to get into the outlining more once I can focus my attention on the details that really will make this sequel go forward.
I submitted a story to this market that wasn't accepted - no worries, it's kind of a tough story to sell but it did rather fit the concept.
Anyway, the anthology is out and getting some nice notices in the UK press. (Well, I presume the Guardian is UK. I'm 99% sure....)

From the sound of it, it's a little more social than Ian pictured at the beginning of the submissions call, a

Question for you scientific minded people, what effect does moving large amounts of metal ores from deep within the earth to concentrated areas on the surface (cities) have on the magnetism of the earth? I realize that the core carries most of the power for our system, but consider that the ores on the mantel have accumulated over millenia, while the bulk of the changes we have made have occured in only a few centuries and the quantities are staggering. Just something I feel no one has thought

It's a Bank Holiday here in the UK: happy hols if you've got one!
Working away on 'stuff', I thought I'd pass on a little gem that I've discovered.
Music to work to, at the Starburst Magazine website.
Podcasts of soundtrack music that are eclectic to say the least. Wiles away the time quite pleasantly, though. Click on each for a different podcast.
Not sure if this is accessible outside the UK, though. Please let me know if it is/is not.
Alrighty, first I'm sorry for spamming the community, that was definitely not my intention.
After speaking with some friends and brainstorming a bit I'd tried to solve some of my problems and get my head more around this.
I think I shall set this in the Edo Period, but of course still in fantasy, so not historically accurate. The world will be inhabited by humans, while the Yason are more like folklore creatures that protect the humans from the shadows.
