A couple weeks ago, on a Sunday morning, I found out that it was an hour earlier than I thought it was. I’d forgotten to "fall back." I ran a search for the semiannual time changes so that I could mark my calendar once and for all, and therefore know when to expect them. During my search, I stumbled upon WebExhibits and learned not only when the time changes occur, but all about Daylight Saving Time in fascinating detail, the dates of which will be changing in 2007.
If you haven’t visited a museum in a while, you can satisfy your craving for enrichment at WebExhibits, which features online exhibits that "encourage people to ask questions and examine issues from several points of view." It’s a public service of the Institute for Dynamic Educational Advancement (IDEA) in collaboration with Brandeis University, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and el Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid. Currently, you can view the Bellini’s Feast of the Gods, three different exhibits on color, calendars through the ages, and the global history and production of butter, which is more interesting than you might think. Browse the archive for more exhibits on art, science and history.
